white zhg symbol Peasant uprising 18. Feb

Fellow Calradians!

As their can never be too much events, we thought up not just one, but a whole series of events! In Stories of Calradia, we combine storytelling with our much loved multiplayer: Each game played on our server will have a short story posted here, explaining why this battle/siege/FnD/capture the flag/... is taking place. There will be story arcs, where each event will define how the story continues as well as one time events.

And it gets even better! As some stories just can't be played in standard equipment, most of the playing on the server will happen in uniform. Yes, that means the whole team has the same equipment, which is not-upgradable - but it wouldn't do if we suddenly had peasants running around in Heraldic Armour, would it?
Same thing with players per team - as the same amount of Knights will always win vs Peasants, numbers will be adjusted to gain balanced gameplay.

Some events will require Nirecotive. Simply for the matter that a story that takes place at night should be played at night!

That being said, on with the stories! We'll start the first ark this Friday (18.02.), 19 GMT on the ZHG server.

If you like the concept and wish to contribute, feel free to write your own stories. We'll see what we can do about them Smile
_________________
Peasant uprising
For a long time, the peasants of Haringoth Castle have been suppressed brutally by their Lord. When a call to arms from the King himself draws the Lord and a great portion of his army away from his castle, the villagers decide to use the opportunity to make a stand.
They may have no good weaponry, but they're many and they're enraged. Frightened, the steward of the castle sends a messenger to his Lord.
But the war binds his troops, so all he can send is a handful of Knights to restore the order in his home.
But the villagers refuse to be intimidated by the troops. They have come so far, too far to stop now. They are determined to fight for their freedom. They spend a last, frightened night together with their families, knowing that with the dawn, the knights will storm their village. Expecting no mercy, the peasants, men and women alike, rally together for a last, desperate battle.
It's a beautiful day. White fog is softly rising from the river as from afar the neighing of the horses can be heard. For a moment, it's quiet. Then, with a fearsome warcry, the knights break through the fog.
The battle has begun.

It's a beautiful day to die.
