This forthcoming Saturday, the 30th of July, at 7pm British Summer Time, the first archery contest will be held within Akanbar. Entry is free, and all necessary equipment will be provided.
Full rules of the contest will be provided immediately beforehand to all those that attend.
The counting houses of Akanbar were pleased to announce this month that they have expanded their services from the provision of item vaults to also provide secure housing for any excess gold their customers may possess.
In the coming days a mighty tournament will be played out, the battleground shall be Akanbar! The tournament master is Storm Warden Lenny. Will the strongest prevail or shall a giant be toppled by a pebble in the winds?
It is rumoured that winners may be offered knowledge crystals by the Gods.
Sign up now and should fate shine upon you your name may be written down in the tomes of history for all eternity.
In the month of Holifra, 233 years since man was first created in Akanbar, a new deity has arisen from the shadow of Silent Malos. All welcome, Anath, the Raven.
For those who missed her arrival, below is a record of the days events.
Your hear a distant rumbling.
From the great northern oceans, a mighty breeze begins to gust through the forest of Ysallyra. It rushes through the trees, creating unrest, and then swirls its way across the vast continent of Akanbar. You catch the scent of the distant forest as the breeze sweeps past you.
With a thunderous rush, the birds of Ysallyra lift as one from the trees. Obviously having been startled by something, but what has unsettled andstirred them from their rest is unclear.
The breezes swirling across the land gain momentum, you feel them rushing past you, surrounding you before heading back towards Ysallyra, and the winds seem to leave a faint trace of voices in their wake.
Rising now, distinguished from the winds, you hear the whispers of a thousand ancient voices. Gathering and gaining in strength and volume, thenear-deafening murmurs rumble across the land from some source within the forest of Ysallyra.
All at once, the voices stop. The leaves of the forest rustle, almost as if taking a breath. Finally, a primordial and resonant voice booms, “It is time.”
An eerie calm descends upon the forest. Every beast and bird remains hushed, and even the winds become still.
“Malos” the voice continues. “We have watched you silently from the shadows since the days of your youth. We have seen your actions, and know of your deeds. Come now, and meet your fate!”
All at once the heavens darken, and bright lights dance across the expanse of the northern horizon. As mystical forces mingle and mix, the lights coalesce and transform into hues of blue, red and green.
From the depths of Ysallyra, a silvery, ethereal light emerges, radiating and illuminating the forest. Jets of light spill through the boughs, swirling and streaming, until finally, all becomes dark once more.
In a final breath, the primeval voice concludes, “It is done! Hear ye all of Akanbar! Malos now sleeps, as we and she have become one in Anath, the Raven”
It was with great supprise, that the populace of Akanbar yesterday found some more artifacts relating to the upcoming Merchants Guilds. Various shrubs dotted around the forests of Akanbar, their use, as yet, unknown.
In recent days individuals have appeared within the guildhouses of the land, offering their services as tutors to their guilds. These masters of their arts are able to teach all of their guild skills to the highest levels, a service they will willingly provide to any guild members.
In a daring move today, some intrepid explorers from Elysium and Ysallyra first broke through the southern edge of the jungle of Sian Dorah into the vast expanse of the Southern Swamps, little knowing the horror that awaited them within its boundaries.
Advancing deeper into the swamp they soon came across a circle of standing stones, the intrepid duo stepping within, realising too late that the stones were the home of the Hydra, a beast of unimaginable strength that soon slew them, their bones the first of many to mark its lair.
The masters of Golgonath have recently commisioned the construction of a hangman’s gallows. They serve a dual pupose, to execute those who break the laws of Golgonath and to act as a forboding warning to future citizens and visitors.
The crows look forward to feasting on future rotting corpses.
A new guide has arisen in Akanbar. Yavana, the Grey-Haired Guide, who has long been hobbling along the streets of our land, has graciously accepted her new position.
With age, comes wisdom, and there are few more wise than Yavana. All citizens of Akanbar, both young and old, are welcome to approach her for advice. Just watch out for her rolling pin!
