Everything happened so fast. Before all of this, you were Freya Godsblood, princess of Ordamark, and you were the most beautiful women in the land. But everything changed for you, as you've caught the eye of the Dark Lord Lazarus Drack who, seeing you, decided to claim you as his wife.

Now, you're his Empress, the Dark Queen Freya Drack, and your reign has just begun.

Last time, you have spoken with the Great Emperor Hagëndorff, and with your husband, you have established a very profitable trade agreement. The Emperor was very courteous, and seemed very happy to have established friendly relations with your empire.

You then went to visit the imperial capital, starting with the arena. You saw a fight against a monster, but it was more a massacre than a fight, everything was done so that the beast died without killing anyone. After this masquerade, a gladiatorial fight took place, and Shelur, Irene and Ruriska participated, to show the spectators what a real fight is. They fought a group of ferocious fighters, and got the victory with only a few scratches. Later, you recruited one of the gladiators, a warrior named Aleanor the Valkyrie. You later learned that she was mute, due to an old injury, when someone tried to slit her throat.

Then you went to the Great Market, and you have obtained many very interesting objects and weapons. You then spied on Irene as she bought a dress, hoping no one notice her doing something so girly. Lazarus also gave you sublime gift, a beautiful Elven style dress. You joined Silviana and Shelur, who bought an armor for the maid, then found Ruriska and Dillon, who took part in an arm wrestling contest in a bar.

Back in the hotel, you took a decision. You are going to the temple District tomorrow, to look for the temple the deer god told you about, and face its trials.
>>
On the to-do-list is
1. Have 20 kids
2. seduce waifus(female) and have kids with them
3. destroy the black moon
4. destroy or subjugate the Light
5. get immortality
6. become a god (maybe?)

You wake up early today, jus before dawn, before everyone else. You do not want your companions and friends to follow you, you don't want them to worry unnecessarily.

But there is someone else, he knows, Your husband, Lazarus. You asked him to. . .
>To accompany you to the temple.
>To stay here.

As you prepare to leave for the temple district, you choose to wear. . .
>One of your dresses.
>A peasant dress.
>One of your armors.

Finally, as you do not know what is waiting for you, you decide to. . .
>Take your rapier.

A peasant would not be carrying a weapon in the city methinks. Do we have a dress that could allow us to blend in with lesser nobility that could carry rapier without rousing suspicions?
Taking vampiric claw into temple of light seems like terrible idea.

Either we go in modest disguise as a lightly armed noblewoman, maybe dyed hair too? ... but on the other hand while trickery can allow us to bypass mundane troubles, any element of subterfuge could be considered a problem for the powers supernatural. In that case it would be better to go in full dress armor, rapier at one side and Lazarus at the other.

You decide to wear one of your armor under a simple peasant dress. You don't want to draw attention to yourself, you even think of wearing a headdress to hide your hair. You also decide to go without weapons, you are sure the trials won't be as easy as defeating a monster with a sword. At least you have you magic, and your guardians.

During your preparation, your husband watched you. You asked him to stay here. he was upset, as he wanted to at least come with you to the temple district. After you get ready, he embrace you.

> "I don't like it. What if something happens to you ?" he ask.

>"I know it's difficult, but I need to do this alone. I promise you, I'll be careful, ." you say.

You kiss him one last time, and you whisper in his ear.

>"I'll come back, I still want to have your childrens after all." you tease him.

You husband chuckle, and let go of you. Looking at him one last time, you exit the room, and leave the hotel. Despite the early hour, there are still so many people in the streets. You take a deep breath, and you start walking, resolved, in the direction of the district temples.

You walked a long way in the streets of the imperial capital, you did not take a carriage in order to pass unnoticed. Nobody seems to notice you, you are a woman among many others here. Finally, after a while, you finally enter the Temple District. Many churches and temples of all religions and all possible beliefs surround you. Some are very simple and functional, others with complex and rich architectures. Even more impressive is the Cathedral of the Light, dominating all the other buildings. But you're not here to visit, and you start your research.

You have questioned some passers-by, and followed their indications, and finally, you have found it. The Deer God didn't lie, it truly look like someone dropped a gigantic stone block in the middle of a plaza, with no doors or windows. But there is one small problem. Guards, guards everywhere around the temple. It look like they are just observing, as some peoples try to enter the temple. They aren't stopping them, but maybe that's just because nothing is happening, as one man run into the wall, knocking himself out against the hard stone.

How do you proceed ?

circle around the temple. Get am idea of what's happening all around it. Look for any alleys or obstructions that we can use to enter unseen.

>>3034215 after this >>3034232

Put our hand on the wall, and with a voice filled with confidence and power, say "Open the Gate !" and call out the god name "METRATON"

You can't really whisper with confidence and power. At minimum I expect we need to be at a conversation level tone.

You think it would be wise to explore the surroundings of the temples first, to see if there is a way to enter without being seen. You go around the big block of stone,and start looking for anything that can help you. After a while, you can't find anything. The temple is right in the middle of the plaza, and there is no access through an alley, the surface of the stone is smooth, without any holds to climb. You are starting to think you actually need to get in front of it, but with the guards around it, it's going to be problematic.

But you have a plan, if you can't evade the guards, then you just need to have them move away. You just need some kind of diversion. You saw a beggar somewhere, you go look for him, and after some minutes, you find him, lying on the ground.

>"Excuse me, sir ? I need something, and you can help me." you tell him.

>"Hmmmmm . . . What do you want my child ? A girl like you shouldn't talk to a tramp like me." he says.

>"I need someone to distract the guards around the temple. I promise you a handful of gold if you manage to get their attention somewhere else." you explain.

>" . . . I accept, but I can't promise you anything, I'm only an old man . . . Wait, if you give me more gold, I'll get some of my friends, and we'll do something. Deal ?" say the beggar.

You don't have any time to look for another way. You give him a big purse filled with gold. The tramp nods and tells you to wait on the plaza. You go back, and wait, and after some times, a group of people in rags advance towards the guards.

>"HEY ! So what are you doing here all day, except nothing, you bunch of lazy asses ?" shout one of them.

>"Beware, scum. You don't want to taste my blade, now go away, or you're going to regret it." answer one of the guards, who look like the officer in charge here.

>"Oh I'm sorry I didn't wan't to hurt your felling. It's true that you are doing something important, just standing here. It's not like you are patrolling the streets, or protecting the borders." shout the beggar.

>"Alright enough, You two, go get this fucker." order the officer.

>"You should look behind you before that." grin the tramp.

As the officer turn his head, he takes a face full of what you hope is mud, which make everyone around laugh at him. The officers look really angry.

>"I WANT THOSE GUYS AT MY FEET ! THEY ARE GOING TO REGRET THIS !" shout the officer.

The group of beggars run away, followed by a great number of the guards. There is still the officer and three of his men, but five women, dressed like prostitutes, come to him.

>"Oh poor lieutenant, those smelly bastards are just jealous of you." says one of the girls.

They keep flirting with the Lieutenant and his three men, and one of the girls wink at you. You understand, and quickly walk to the temple. You are now in front of the smooth surface of the wall. How do you proceed ?

You think you have an idea about how to do it. You put your hand on the smooth, cold stone. You close your eyes, and take a deep breath, this is it, the moment of truth. With all the confidence you can muster, you whisper at the stone.

>"Open the gates !"

You open your eyes, and call the name.

>"Metraton !"

Instantly, you feel the stone become warmer. You retreat slightly, and you see marks of fire drawing on the wall. The stone splits in one place, and opens like a big door, while a cloud of dust escapes from the opening. Passers-by look, amazed. You hear a voice in your mind, like a distant whisper. COME. You clench your fist, and walk into the temple, ready to face whatever is thrown at you. Behind you the door is closing.

The lieutenant is still busy flirting with the prostitutes, when one of his men comes to him.

>"Sir, there was someone in front of the temple, a woman." he says.

>"Like a hundred times a day, every days. So what ?" grunt the lieutenant.

>"Well, the temple actually opened, and she entered." answer the guards.

>" . . . . . SHIIIIIIIIIIIIT !"
.
.
.
.
You are in a very dark room. Since the door closed behind you, you have no way of seeing what's going on, so you decide to prepare yourself. You remove the peasant dress, and you are now in your Ordamark's armor. Suddenly torches ignite spontaneously, diffusing a large light. The room in which you find yourself is as simple as the outside of the temple. Except for a hole in the wall in front of you, it's barely big enough for a person to slip in, but there's no way to turn around and go back. Whatever happens in there, you won't have a second chance. You go near the hole, and kneel down. You see nothing at all, only absolute darkness.

And so much to go now, you have no other choice after all. First you take your arms, then your torso, and finally the rest of your body, and you begin to crawl, like a bug, toward you destiny, and darkness. You can't shake off this feeling that you are being watched.

You have the felling that you have been down for hours, maybe even more, you can't see anything, and there are no sounds except for your body as you crawl along the tunnel, and the beating of your heart. From time to time, the tunnel becomes narrower and you feel that you will be crushed by the rock above you at all times.

As you keep crawling forward, the tunnel become ridiculously small, giving it an even more claustrophobic feeling. The stone pushes down on you, each inch you push forward squeezing you tighter and tighter. You struggle to push forward, unable to gain enough leverage to move fast. But you try to stay calm. You steady your breathing as you notice it get out of hand, and you grit your teeth and keep pushing yourself along.

You try to calm your breathing, exhaling and pushing forward at the same time. You keep doing this as you move inches by inches, advancing slowly toward whatever is in front of you, you don't care right now, you only want to get out of here.

After some times like this, you feel tunnel begins to widen out, and you sigh in relief as you finally free yourself of the crushing earth. The tunnel around you is now wide enough for you to walk on all four, instead of crawling like an insect. But now you have another problem on your hands.

In front of you, A blue crystal illuminate a small room, big enough so you can sit.The tunnel branch out into three path.
The tunnel on the right is humid as mosh grow around it.
The Tunnel in the middle is dry and dusty.
The tunnel on the left is strange, as you can see a faint light farther inside.

>Tunnel on the right.

You decide to take the right tunnel, where the moss grows everywhere around it. Where there is vegetation, there is life. You kneel again and enter the tunnel, this time, it's wide enough so you crouch, and move at a reasonable speed. It's better than the suffocating hole you were crawling in before.

Here, the air is cooler and moist, and the moss covers all the walls of the tunnel, producing a viscous sound when your hands and your knees push on the green mat. You notice something as you move forward, the sound of water. It may be an opening overlooking an underground river, or something like that. As you go along, you notice that the ground slowly began to slope downwards. And with the moss, it's becoming difficult to maintain your balance.

>"Calm down Freya, stay focused. Nice and steady, no need to rush." you say to yourself.

Unfortunately, the humidity around you made the moss really slippery, and you slip on the green matt, and with the steeper slope, you fall on your back and you begin to slip. You're trying to hang on to anything, but there's no hold on the sticky walls, and you're starting to pick up speed.

>"Stay calm, think, THINK !"

You're trying to find something to help you, until you hear the sound of water becoming stronger and suddenly, the earth below you turn sharply downwards as it widens, and you fall into a cold river. You are struggling to keep your head above the water, while you're being carried away by a strong current.

>"Don't panic, don't scream, think Freya."

You look all around you, but nothing can help you, the stone around you is as smooth as the wall outside the temple.
Then you hear it, a defeaning roar, the sound of . . . A waterfall.

Now you scream, as you try to swim away, but you can't escape, and inevitably, you fall, as your scream resonates around.

You keep shouting as you fall down the waterfall, for you, it seems like the water is forming a small lake, and you hit the surface with force. You are carried away by a whirlwind of water, as you desperately try to get to the surface. More than once, you could have smashed your skull on a rock.

At last, the swirl around seems to calm down, and you manage to maneuver quite easily in the water. As you try to swim back to the surface, you see something, deeper, a giant maw, revealing huge, sharp teeth. Fear overwhelms you, and you swim from all your efforts to reach a safe place. You finally breathe as you come out of the water. You cough and spit, get away as far away from the water as possible. You calm down and take a breather. You hear no sound, except the waterfall. You take this opportunity to look where you are.

You are in a large underground cave, with a small lake but it's quite deep. The Cavern is lit by torches, but instead of fire, crystals diffuses a bluish glow. There is an enormous sculpture, and judging by the stone scales and the long body without legs, it must be a giant snake. You follow the body, until it go in the water. That when you notice it go for the mouth you saw underwater. It must be part of the sculpture. You let out a sigh of relief, as no creature is hidden, waiting to eat you whole. You look around and there is no visible way out.

You suppose it would be wise to look around, to find out if anything can help you. You do not want to activate a trap, or fall into another hole. So you begin to observe around you. You approach one of the torches, you see one of the crystals. You find their lights fascinating, and you take one of the torches, it will surely be useful later.

> Acquired Crystal torch.

You are looking for anything that might be unusual. . . Unusual in a secret cavern under a mystical temple. You can not find anything apart from the rocks. It seems that no one has been here since. . . In fact, you do not think anyone has ever reached this place, let alone enter the temple. Actually, you're starting to wonder if your presence here isn't part of some plan. Well, It's too late now.

You find nothing else. No exit, no odd cracks in the stone, no hidden door, or secret exit. You go to examine the giant stone snake next. It's made of smooth black stone, with incredibly detailed scales, you run your hand along the surface, and despite being cold, it fell as if it's real. You look for anything, hidden scriptures, hidden mechanism, but nothing. In one last attempt, you knock at the stone snake body, but it sound full, no way out inside the body. One of the scales of black stone is a little loose. You decide to take it, maybe you'll gain something out of this ?

>Acquired Black stone Scale.

You look at the water. Cold, dark water. You think there is no other way.

>"I'm going to need a drink and a week long rest after that." you sigh.

You take a deep breath, and you dive into the icy water. You swim towards the mouth of the snake, and, taking care with the stone teeth, you go inside. It seems like there is a tunnel, wide enough, you decide to follow it.

You continue to swim, luckily, there are places in the tunnel where you can breathe, thanks to the air trapped inside.

You continue to swim for a while. The cold water could have made you lose consciousness, but you're a girl from the north, the cold water is nothing compared to the harsh winter back in Ordamark. You manage to navigate through the tunnel, the crystal torch lighting the way. The tunnel goes up, and after a few seconds, you go back to the surface. You come out of the water, and you wait a little to dry yourself. The room you are in now is relatively small, there is only one door made of metal.

After drying a little, you go to the door, but while you're about to open it, you feel intense heat on your hand. You remove it very quickly, and you look at the door. It seems there is no trap, no magic, but the door is burning. Yet that's where you have to go.

You decide to open it in an . . . unconventional way. You step back a little, and you kick the door with all your strength, making it open with a loud noise. A heat wave suddenly envelops you, and you understand where it comes from.

> "OH BY THE GODS, ARE KIDDING ME !?!" you shout.

In front of you is a real inferno. A deep ravine cuts the area in two, it looks like the heart of a volcano. The heat is stifling, and from time to time immense flames gush from the depths in a defeaning roar. The only way to cross the ravine of fire and to pass on which you think is a gigantic skeleton. These bones must have belonged to an old monster, and you wonder how it was found there. It does not matter now.

>"Come on Freya, all you risk is a painful death." you say to yourself.

The cold did not bother you, but the heat here is terrible, you need to get out of here ! You run toward the remains of the creature, and start your dangerous walk over the inferno.

You start moving towards the skeleton, when you're right in front, the heat is unbearable, you feel like you're going to be steamed in your armor, you're already starting to sweat abundantly.

>"And I just took a bath ! THIS IF FUN TO YOU ?" you shout at the ceiling.

Only the sound of the fire below you replies, and all around you, great flames spring from the depths. You sigh as you steady yourself, putting one hand on the white bones, and start to walk on the skeleton of the beast. you try to keep you balance, as you hear scary squeaks and creaks while you slowly progress.

>"My little deer, we are going to have a "LONG" talk after this." you mumble to yourself.

You move centimeters by centimeters, putting your feet very carefully on each rib, doing everything to avoid accidental slipping into the blazing inferno below, holding on the spine with your hands. This is fine, you survived this far, you can keep doing this until the end, awaken your powers, and go back to everyone, you'll laugh with Silviana, train with Irene and Shelur, tease Ruriska and Dillon, talk with Murata, and cuddle with Lazarus.

Suddenly, you hear a crack, louder than the others, you stop, and you slowly turn your head. One of the ropes that held the bones just broke, and the whole structure begins to creak in a threatening way.

>" . . . Fuck !"

You don't lose any time, you run toward the other side as the skeleton begin to break away, not looking behind you, as you hear the bones break and fall. You're almost there, when you see big cracks appear on the bones in front of you. You do not hesitate and you jump over the void, and you land on the other side, safe and sound. You look back as the whole bridge of bones is destroyed and fall into the fiery abyss. You try to calm down, and run to the exit.

You leave the inferno behind as you close the door. You are now in a small room, with walls made of stone. You take this opportunity to take a break, and you lie on the cold ground. There is another door on the other side of the room, and you can't help but notice a faint smell, a foul smell of rotten egg.

this smell, you know it, reflect. . . yes in Exius's laboratory, back in Ordamark, it was one of the products he used, he always told you never to touch his bottles and bottles, because they contained a very dangerous and unstable liquid. He at least explained what they were. He told you to pay attention to this one especially, recognizable with its smell of rotten egg.

It's Vitriol, Sulfuric acid, one of the most powerful acids in the world.

You go to the door, the smell becomes stronger, and you open it carefully to take a look. As soon as the door opens, nauseous vapors come to you, and make you cough, it stings your eyes and burns your nostrils and throat. The room in front of you is another cavern, filled with a filled with a greenish liquid, bubbles form and explode from time to time, releasing toxic fumes.

A toxic cave, really ?

You think of Ruriska's face, and you shudder at the thought of falling into this deadly liquid. You see another hole on the other side of the cave, but it forces you to pass through the acid, your armor should allow to pass. . . normally. The toxic smokes start and burn your throat, you can'tt stay there! What do you do ?

As the gases begin to irritate your throat and lungs, you think of the way Exius went to work with this acid. He will freeze it and use pieces that he will cut into the block. You could do the same thing. You focus on your power, and as you raise both arm, you release the ice all around you. The acid freezes instantly and the gas dissipates after a few seconds. You now have in front of you a plate of harmless frost. You take a deep breath of fresh air and relax, thank to the coolness of the room. You grin at yourself for this job well done.

>"Piece of cake. It was the easiest trial yet !" you shout, a smug look on your face.

You carefully put your foot on the ice, but when you see that it's quite solid, you just start walking. Actually, it would be faster if you just slide across the ice. You smile, and you start to skate, it's quite difficult with the armor, but you get the hang of it fast enough, and you slide happily, humming a song from your childhood with a smug face, as you easily passed this trial. You cross the frozen acid, and find yourself in front of the hole. Just like last time, you don't hesitate, and you go inside.

After a while, you exit the tunnel, and find yourself in some kind of corridor. You look around you. It looks like a crypt, and you are greeted by many embalmed bodies. There are everything, women and men, with all kinds of armors and weapons. You take the crystal torch and start walking forward. You feel uneasy, surrounded by dead bodies, as if you were watched. You look behind you, but there is nothing. . . . Wait, the corpses you passed have their head turned, as if looking at you . . . You start walking again, and after some seconds, you turn again.

Okay, something is going on, you are sure the body you just passed had his face forward but now it's looking at you with its empty eyes. What do you do ?

You really don't feel comfortable here and do not . However, you are not alone. You look look for the power inside you and summon your guardians. The white wolf and the snake of darkness appear and join your sides, the snake wraps itself around you in a protective way and the white wolf stays by your side, on the lookout for anything unusual. With your two protectors, you advance in the corridor of the crypt, picking up the pace. All around you, the remains of ancients warriors keep looking at you, but nothing happens.

>"I'm just here for the Deer God, he was the one who told me come here. So no need to get up, I can find the way myself. Thank you." you say.

Only the silence answers you, you don't know what you expected. The wolf and the snake look at you with their heads slightly tilted to the side.

>"Don't look at me like that, I had to try." you answer, a little embarrassed.

The crypt is silent, except for the sound of your boots on the ground. You look at each of the dead bodies, and it takes all your willpower to pass by them and not look behind you, as you are sure they are turning silently to follow you with their dead eyes. Finally, you see something. A great throne, with the remains of a fearsome warrior, with a crown made of bones and two black horns coming out of his head. He holds a large rune sword with both hands, the kind that only Lazarus could handle. Curiously, he remains motionless. He seems deader than the others.

Behind the throne, an even bigger door is closed. You approach it, and notice a runic inscription, written above a vertical slit, that act as the lock of the door. You start to read the runes. You studied the writings of your ancestors, and you can somewhat decipher what they mean.

"Thy soul shall find itself alone
Amid dark thoughts of the tomb
Not one, of all the crowd, to pry
Into thyne hour of trial

In this solidute, be silent
Which is not loneliness, for then
Thy shall face the metal, as around
The spirits of the dead, who stood
In life before thee, are again
In death around thee, and their gazes
Shall overshadow thee, and judge thee."

Well, now that's reassuring ! So the dead are judging you right now. What being silent mean ? You talked earlier, but nothing happened. You look at the lock below the runes. It look like you need some kind of key, but something quite large, like . . . . A sword ?
Gods damn it !

What do you do ?

You think it's best to exxamine the corpse of the sovereign, before doing anything. You go back to the throne, and you observe the body who is sitting on it. He wears old armor, you have never seen it like this, except in illustrations, in books about antiquity. He must be really old. His sword is made of metal, but you don't think it's made of iron or steel. There is the same kind of runes that on that written on the door. It read "STORMFANG".

You think the sword is big enough to be the key to the door, but if the runes are to be believed, something is going to happen. He's holding the sword close, and you think that you should move his hands before you can take the weapon. Unless you prefer to force things, and tear the sword directly from the hands of the dead sovereign.

You carefully look behind you, and ALL the bodies are looking at you, waiting for your next move. Your wolf and snake are calm, as if nothing was wrong. And the sovereign of the crypt look really dead, he doesn't move his head like the rest. Maybe this trail will be as easy as the last one ? What do you do ?

You need to get out of here, and for that you need this sword. You slowly move towards the corpse, and slowly, you try to move the fingers, to loosen its grip on the sword. You proceed with the most precautions possible, spending several seconds with each finger, and you do not open them in their integrity, but just enough so that you can withdraw the sword. your wolf and your snake look at you, and make no noise, letting you concentrate on your task.

fingers by fingers, you manage to make him lose his sword. Now you take it with both hands, and with the greatest care you lift the sword. By the gods, it's heavy ! You don't think you'll be able to handle that kind of weapon in a fight. You raise the sword (with difficulty) and go to the door. When you're in front, you're about to put it in the lock, when you hear a creepy, cold voice.

>"You know it's impolite to take things that do not belong to you ?"

You scream as you turn around quickly, swinging the sword with all your might . . . Into the head of the sovereign. The blade splits the skull of the undead in two, releasing lightning all around. When all is calm, the undead look at you, half of his body burned, his head split in two.

>". . . . Ouch ?" it say.

The sovereign fall on the ground like a puppet who had it's strings cut. You look at the body, and wait for anything else, but nothing happen. That's all ? You don't lose time, and go unlock the door, as your wolf sniff the burned corpse. Finally, the door happen with a lot of noise. But as you are about to go in, you hear your snake hiss, you turn and, you see it looming over the body of the sovereign. it's mouth water with need.
What do you do ?

You whistle at your snake, and it turn it's head to look at you.

>"Not now, we have to get out of here. Beside, I don't think you'll enjoy a millenia old corpse anyway." you say.

Resigned, the Snake of Darkness coem back to you, and wrap itself around you again. You gently pat its head. You look at the sword in your hand, it's a great weapon, not for you of course, but maybe you could gift it to Lazarus. A big sword who release lightning as you attack, he's going to love it ! Now, you need to finish this trial first. You walk into the next room with confidence, ready for anything, even if you are a little tired.

You are now is an even bigger room. Seriously, how come no one noticed something this big before ? And how all of this manage to exist under Lynn without the emperor ever noticing, or if he knew, not doing anything about it ? It look like the great hall of a castel, you look around, and you sigh with relief. no undead, no trap or dealy monster, the room ic completely empty. You walk forward, your guardians by your side. Only the sound of your armored feet on the ground can be heard, as it echo in the great hall.

Finally you arrive where a throne is supposed to be, but instead of a throne, there is a big block of stone. It look like a smaller version of the temple, but with something engraved in the stone. A symbol, but you don't know what it mean. You look around, there is nothing. This must be the end, so what are you supposed to do ?

WHAT DO YOU DO NOW ?

>>3044764
don't cut self yet, circle the block and try to analyze the symbol. Is it menacing with spikes and angles, or is it smooth and flowing? Is it lopsided, or symmetric? Does its symmetry or lack thereof point in a specific direction? Does it contain plant or animal motives, or patterns reminiscent of fire or clouds or water?
Look at the walls and alcoves if there are more symbols there.


When options for passive analysis are exhausted, try touching the block, tracing the symbol, knocking on it to check if it's hollow, pushing it away from its original location to check if there's something underneath (or if there is a more suitable position for it elsewhere)

You just shake your head in disappointment, you didn't expect some grand feast to congratulate you for finishing the trials, but you wanted at least . . . Something ! No you shouldn't think like that. You know what they say, no news is good news ! At least nothing is attacking you right now. You dismiss your guardians, but not before giving them wholesome head pats.

>"Sorry for making you come here for nothing. I promise you that next time there will be some action. See you later." you smile.

Your guardians disappear, leaving you alone in this great hall. You have a lot to do.

You take a look at the block of stone. You circle around it, after some seconds, you reach the conclusion that it's a perfect block of stone, with no imperfection, it really looks like a small version of the temple. You knock on it and listen. It sound full, like a stone. You try to push it around, but it's too heavy, it didn't even budge.

The symbol engraved in the stone intrigues you. It's not a rune. It look more . . . Geometric ? It forms a hexagon, with several circles and a hexagram in the center. It's strange but you have the feeling you saw something similar somewhere before. You take another look around you, to see if there is other symbols, but there is nothing.

You take a closer look at the symbol. It looks like it's made of pure gold and you notice it's not really engraved, it looks like something, or someone . . . Branded the stone ? The stone around the symbol seems to have burned, but it's impossible. You try touching the symbol, but hardly have you touched it with your fingers, that it shines slightly. You quickly withdraw you fingers, and the shine disappear.

You may have an idea. You remove one of your armored glove, and you make a small cut in your hand with the sword. You slowly approach, the closer you get, the brighter the symbol shine. When you fully put your hand on the stone block, the symbol shines with an intense golden glow, but nothing happens. Maybe you need to do something more ?

What do you say ?

You think about the symbol, it's now shining brightly with a golden glow. Carefully you touch the first circle with a bloody finger. When you touch the stone, the circle become blue. interesting, you touch the next circle, going clockwise. The next Circle becoma blue too. That's it ! You keep doing this, touching all the outer circles, until all of them shine light blue. With this, the hexagon get the same.

You do the same thing with the inner circles, but when you touch the second circle, nothing happen. You try going counterclockwise, and the circle light up. You smile at yourself, whoever created this, he didn't do something too complicated. Finally, all the circles shine with an intense blue light. The hexagram in the center become blue too, and you see something appearing in the middle of the symbol. the shape of a hand.

You shallow loudly, and slowly put your whole hand, it's hot. You close your eyes, take a deep breath, sigh, and open your eyes. You then say with confidence.

>"I call you . . . ."

You prepare yourself, and shout your last word.

>"METRATON !"

The block of stone that crack suddenly, an intense blue light escapes, you close your eyes and back, but your hand remains on the symbol, you try to pull away with all your strengh, but you are stuck. You can't run ! Suddenly, you feel an intense pain IN your hand, as if it was burning from the inside, you gasps, as if you were running out of air. You clench your teeth, as the pain spreads along your arm, then all over your body. your legs give out, and you collapse on the ground, your hand still stuck on the stone. You feel that if something was tearing your inside with white hot pliers. Your vitality escapes you, and you struggle to stay conscious.

>Endurance = -4

As you gasp in pain, you see the outer rings of circles dissapearing, and the pain becoming worse.

The seconds that follow are a torture while you still feel agonizing pain all over your body. While the burning sensation persists, you think you can get up. You clench your teeth and lift yourself up with your only valid arm, and you manage to put yourself on one knee. That when another pain make you scream, and you fall back on the floor. You can't move your legs, it's as if something had just pierced you with a spear. You start crying, tears running down your face. You've never felt so much pain. You try to get up again, but the same agonizing pain strike you in the arm, making you collapse. You try to move any of your limbs, but not to avail, the pain is too strong. The inner ring of circles disappears, leaving only the hexagon and inner hexagram.

>Dexterity : - 5

You can't go on, you hurt, you feel like you're going to die, you are no more than a heap of flesh, writhing in pain, crying and screaming, you see your hand turn red, and your vision begins to be veiled in white. Is that how you die ? In this accursed temple, lost underground? Without anyone being able to find you again ? No you don't want to die ! Not here ! You want to see everyone, you want to live with your friends and family, you want to spend your life with your husband, you want to be a mother, you want to see your childrens grow into adult. You don't want to die ! Lazarus.

You are about to lose consciousness, and you don't see the rest of the symbol disappear, and your hand is released while the pain disappears little by little. You lie on the ground, breathing hard, still crying. The cracks on the block of stone widen, and the blue light becomes more intense. Finally in a crash, the block of stone explodes in a deafening noise, and blue flames fill the room, then disappear just as quickly. There, holding the stone block now holds a very tall man, taller than Lazarus, his skin is blue and looks like the night sky. He floats a few centimeters from the ground. He takes a deep breath and opens his eyes, and whisper.

>"Yes."

The god looks around him, when he sees you in, he floats kindly towards you and takes you in his arms with delicacy. He has a small smile but his eyes are full of sorrow.

>"I'm sorry, you should never have gone through this. I thank you for what you did for me, until the end of time."

You slowly open your eyes and the first thing you see is the face of an hansome man.

>"Wha. . . Who ? . . . Metraton ?" you ask.

>"Yes, rather different from the deer you knew, right ?" smile the god.

>"But how . . . " you start.

>"Do not speak, you are still very weak. I am the deer god you saw in your dream, I am Metraton. You released me from tens of millenia of imprisonment, you have sacrificed yourself for me, and you have my eternal gratitude as a god, know that I could never repay this debt to you." he say.

You sigh, with relief, and incredulity. He seems happy to see you, and really sorry for what you just suffered. You can't believe that a god is holding you in his arms and talking to you about his gratitude to you. If yit wasn't hurting so much right now, you might think you're dreaming. How do you reply to Metraton ?

You smile at him, and you raise your arm, and you start patting his head. You hiss in pain as you have to extend your arm a lot to reach the top of his head.

>"You were cuter as a deer though . . . I don´t think I can give you head pats as frequently as before." you say.

>"That is true. Even though I appreciated your attention, I think the effect is a little different now." chuckle Metraton

You take a deep breath. Yes, his voice is the same as when he was the deer. You take some time to calm down before talking.

>"Yeah, right. But you are free now. So what are you going to do now ? Destroy the world ? But my little deer would never do that right ?" you ask.

>"Of course i'm not going to destroy the world. I was imprisoned for trying to save it. For now, I'm going to go into hiding. They weren't expecting me to escape, and when they'll know about it, they will look for answers. Be reassured, they can't do anything to me now, but it is better that I avoid getting noticed." explain the god.

>"Right now ? Nothing. The dark doesn't care about me. Hell have is own agenda, and it used me when I was imprisoned only because I was useful. The light can't do anything right now, because even now, they don't think I'm a threat. I even believe they forgot about me. I just need to hide. I still have some contact in the mortal world." answer Metraton.

>"So you are going to start a religious order, bestow boons on your worshippers and things like that ?" you ask him.

>"No, I actually despite what make us gods, leaving men at our mercy, frightened by power and knowledge, fearing the divine wrath. No, I have some mages at my service, and they'll know what to do. They have been acting without me for millennia." replies the god.

>"Then, why were you imprisoned in the first place, and by whom ?" you say.

>". . . This is a long story, and I don't wan't you to stay here for too long. I'll tell you one day, because right now, it's not important." the tell you.

>"On the subject of otherworldly power, How do you measure up against the Black Moon ?" you ask.

>"He's nothing, I could destroy him easily, he's not a god, even if he's really powerful. But I won't, because that's not my problem." say Metraton.

>"Woah, thank you for that." you reply sarcastically.

>"That the thuth." he tells you simply.

>"Whatever. If you are so powerful, can you help lazarus’s exes with their corruption problem ?" you inquire.

>". . . What Lazarus did when he tried to impregnate them was similar to salting the earth. Their souls are tainted at their core. I could help them, but that's not something for me to do. But you could try something, if you can infuse them with enough essence of an uncorrupted soul, and in large quantities, it should, over time, appease the effects of corruption." he explains.

>"But it won't make it disappear." you say.

>"You need to understand that it's been too long for them. So much corruption can scar a soul for life, and those women stayed like that for a long time, they should be happy to at least have a chance to lower it."

>"So when you say 'uncorrupted souls' you mean . . . " you start.

>"Any soul that wasn't under demonic or corrupting influence, the average man or woman soul, really. Even the soul of a murderer stays relatively pure." he explains.

>"Thank you for this advise." you say.

Metraton land, gently put you on the ground and help you as you get up.

>"So what now? Did I unlock my powers? Will I get the strength that I sacrificed for you back?" you ask.

>"Freya, there is six trials, you passed the trials of earth, water, fire, air, and metal. There are two trials left." explain Metraton.

>"WHAT ? it's not over ? I am half soaked, I am covered with sweat and dirt, I stink of rotten eggs, I feel pain everywhere, I am hungry and thirsty. AND YOU TELL ME I STILL HAVE MORE TO DO ? WHAT ARE THOSE LAST TRIALS ?" you ask angrily.

Metraton sigh and look at you right in the eyes.

>"The trial of death and life."

>. . . . .Oooookaaaayyyyyy . . . And what i'm supposed to do." You ask, a little nervous.

Thr former imprisonned god, close his eyes, before raising one of his arm. The greatsword, Stormfang, rises, and float right into his hand. He opens his eyes again and looks at you, with a sad smile.

>"Do you trust me Freya ?" he asks you.

. . . .You have a bad feeling about this. What do you answer ?

You look at Metraton, and smile at him.

>"You haven’t given me a reason not to . . . These trials so far haven't been pleasant, but I did ask for them . . . I trust you. I wouldn't be here if I didn't trust you, my dumb little deer." you answer.

Metraton doesn't smile at you little joke, he's still looking sad but nod.

>"Then I hope that someday you will forgive me for what I am about to do." he tells you.

With great speed, so fast that you don't have time to react, he thrusts forward with the sword, driving the blade in your chest, piercing your heart. You look at the god, then at the blade that pierces your chest, you see a trickle of your own blood. You slowly raise your trembling hand, dumbfounded at what is happening. You look at Metraton, and try to talk, but you feel something hot rising in your mouth, and when you open it, blood is flowing out of it.

The god removes the blade from your body, and you have the feeling that your organs are being pulled outward with the sword. When the blade leaves your chest, a stream of blood escapes from the wound, spurts on Metraton, and flows over you. He just stabbed you !

You feel really bad, as you bring your hands to the wound, your warm blood flows on your hands. You begin to stagger, and you fall to the ground after a few seconds. You struggle to breathe, while your mouth is filled with your own blood. All around you, everything becomes darker and darker. You start crying again, as your body gets colder every second, you can't feel your arms or your legs anymore. Metatron approaches you, and you can only move your eyes to see the god watching over you with sadness.

>"I'm sorry."

Your eyes are veiled in black, your breathing stops, and you lose consciousness, falling into the cold and eternal abyss of death.

Everything is so dark around you. You don't see anything, you don't feel anything. You try to move your . . . What are you doing ? Who are you ? You feel strange.

You don't know how long you've been here, actually have you ever been somewhere else ? Is there anything else ? You should stay here.
.
.
.
.
You see something, far in the distance, far away from you. You want to get closer, you don't know how but you have to. You struggle, moving inches by inches, how are you even moving ? The thing you saw is a faint light, but it becomes more and more intense as you get closer while you hear whispers all around you. You know those voices, they are comforting, warm, you want to hear them again.

As you get closer, you have more and more difficulties moving forward, the darkness around you hinders your progress, why are you doing this? why struggled? why share in suffering, when you could stay here, to rest . . . . No, you have to get out, you're slowly remembering everything, your friends, your family, your husband. You follow the light, and you slowly feel faster, all your memoriescoming back to you, as the shackles that slowed you down break. This time you run towards the light, the warmth, and toward the difficulties and the sufferings, but you are ready, and you're not going to run away.

Finally you touch the light and the darkness around you disappear, You are you, in an infinity of white, and you are naked.

Before you a silver sphere floats above the ground, you approach it with confidence, and you take it in your hand. You feel the power flow in you, and you close your eyes, letting the spere be absorbed in your body.

You feel an enormous amount of power flowing into you, with an intense heat in your hands, your body exudes a faint light, and the beating of your heart remains constant and calm. You feel a greater connection with your guardians, as if they were at your side at every moments.

New spells

>Inferno = make an enemy burn from the inside.

>Divine aura = You calm everyone aound you, thank to your kind smile. +5 to persuasion roll.

>Guardian affinity = When your guardians are at your side, all damages are reduced by 10%.

>Divine Gift : Healing = You can now heal the wors injury, and even repair organs.

When you have totally absorbed the sphere, the white light becomes more intense, until it's blinding you. You have the feeling that you are pulled up with force. The light dissapear, and the dark come back, but it's not the same. You slowly open your eyes, to see a ceiling made of stone. Everything comes back to you suddenly, and you inhale loudly, and you're choking, while your lungs fill with air again, you squirm on the ground, as you try to get up. A blue hand come to gently take the back of your head, and another come on your torso to help you sit down. You were dead, you are sure that you just died, but you are back. It hurt.

>"You came back, I knew you could do it. I'm proud of you." say Metraton.

You turn your head, still wheezing, and look at the former imprisoned god, and you smile.

>"You will not be able to get rid of me so easily." you joke.

>"Don't say that, I want you to live, and for as long as possible. How do you feel ?" he ask.

>"Like someone had just stabbed me. But other than that, I feel . . . good ? Different ? I feel really powerful, as if I could take on the world." you tell him.

>Then you unlocked your true potential. I'm proud of you Freya, and thankfull for everything." he say.

>"Don't mention it. So what should I do now ? I need to get out of. . ." you start as you try to get up.

>"Freya, there is something you need to know, about your body." explain Metraton.

>"What do you mean, I feel . . . . Fine." you smile, until you see your hand.

It's completely blue, the same as the crystals. Your arm is in the same state, up to your shoulder. You look at the rest of your body, you aren't wearing your armor, only some sheet, a small crystal is planted on your navel.

>"That's not all" say Metraton.

He make a mirror appear, and it float towards you. you take a look to see what happened. Your eyes are different, your irises are always green, but your seals are now blue, like your right arm.But beside that you sigh as you are still the same.

>"Your body has undergone some minor changes. You are still human, but your power are now showing on your body." explain Metraton.

How do you reply ?
>It's okay
>I could have been worse.

Well i could be worst but can you do something like make it disappear? Because when i meet Queen Titania to discuss the fate of Filarion we WILL have a problem with the colour of my arm. That said can you tell me about Queen Titania ? I didn´t really know anything about her.

>>3047869

>>3047880
All the stat that you lost previously came back.
You didn't gain more point, what you have now on your arm is more like a scar.

You keep looking at the mirror, then your arm. You need to hide this. You turn to Metraton.

>"It could have been worse. Can you do something about this please ?" you ask.

>"You must understand that this is a consequence of the trials that you have just gone through, your body was marked, deep down into your flesh, all because of the powers you have received. You should know that those who unlock their potential are rare, and those who survive are even rarer." he say.

>"Wait, so are the trials are part of how you unlock your powers, or a way to keep your prison out of reach ?" you inquire.

>"At first it was my prison. But I knew it can be used to unlock magical potential. An oversight of my jailers." smirk the god.

>"So can you make it disappear ? It make me rather reconizable." you say.

>"Yes, you are right, it's not everyday so see a redhead with a blue arm, and strange eyes." he tell you.

>"So You understand why I need to hide it. Because when I'll meet Queen Titania, to discuss the fate of Filarion, we WILL have a problem with the colour of my arm." you explain.

>"You are going to meet the High Queen of the elves ? Can't you just let her deal with him ? You did your part by stopping him." say Metraton.

>"I want to meet her, I want to know my neighors, and all the people who know about this prophecy. Can you tell me what you know about her ? I know nothing of her." you ask.

>"You are such a child, always curious. I'll tell you. She has been reigning over the elves for 3000 years, it is her that pushed back the tharque empire from her forest, but still allowed them the construction of the imperial road. Extremely beautiful, she's elegant, confident, and composed, but some consider her too hot headed for a queen of the elves. She's highly intelligent, and she's a powerful magician. Since she heard the prophecy, she has not left her kingdom of the old forest, and has made it a real fortress. She's now really wary of outsiders." explain the god.

While he's talking, he raised his arm, and you feel a scratching sensation, and the blue of your arm slowly dissapear, leaving only a small scar. You move your arm around, to see if nothing is wrong. satisfied you nod. and look back at Metraton.

>"I did all I could, but it's going to appear when you'll use your powers, so If you want to keep it hidden, wear glove when you're with someone. Unfortunately, I can't do much about your eyes, but I'm sure you'll find a way to explain it." say Metraton.

What do you ask him now ? Or do you want to get out ?
>>
>>3048134
what do you think of how Lazarus and I dealed with Hagëndorff, he even smiled. And do you have any tips for how to deal with Queen Titania like weak point or what is important to her? And thanks for everthing my little dear.
>>
>>3048134
So was the prophecy real? Is it something that will happen, something that will happen but not in the way one would expect, or a wholesale invention?
>>
>>3048134
>Thank you.
>I suppose I should be getting back to surface. Lazarus and my friends are probably worried, and who knows what else has transpired...

>Will I be able to talk to you again? I suppose in dreams?

I guess Freya will have to start wearing veil or something. I just hope the hubby won’t freak out that someone else impaled his waifu and left his mark on her.

And I guess we can restore voice to the Valkyrie now.

Oh right.

>you spoke earlier of essence of uncorrupted soul. Does that mean that only way to soothe corruption is by sacrificing someone uncorrupted? Because that sounds like a pretty corrupt act itself. Shouldn’t such mending come from either freely given affection and kindness from outside, or by discipline, spiritual exercise and meditation from inside?

>"I have some questions, can you answer them please." you ask.

>"Of course, that's the least I can do for you after everything you did. What do you want to know ?" he say.

>So was the prophecy real ? Is it something that will happen, something that will happen but not in the way one would expect, or a wholesale invention ?" you inquire.

>"The prophecy is real, it just depend on how you interpret the words, and how things are going to turn out before the end. You see, a lot of phrophecies are like that. If you try to avoid it, you will create the situation for it to come true. This particular prophecy will depend on many things, even the gods, even the Light and Darkness don't know the outcome." he explain to you.

>"Interesting. About the light, what do you think of how Lazarus and I dealed with Hagëndorff ? I think we did good, he even smiled." you tell him.

>"I think you did well, all thing considered, you showed him the two of you were respectful, willing to talk, and understood his power. But be careful, he could discover Lazarus true nature if they stay colse together for too long." he say.

>"Alright I'll be more careful with our future dealings with him. And do you have any tips for how to deal with Queen Titania, like weak points or what is important to her ? " you ask.

>"All the centuries, and dangers around her, like two powerful empires around her in only 1500 years, amde her quite paranoid. She's tired, and will not play the political game. She will use her authority, and won't make compromises. Show her that you will not give in, But if she personnaly ask for something that's not outright impossible, accept, and show her that you want to be friend, not another ruler talking with another ruler." he say.

>"You spoke earlier of essence of uncorrupted soul. Does that mean that only way to soothe corruption is by sacrificing someone uncorrupted ? Because that sounds like a pretty corrupt act itself. Shouldn’t such mending come from either freely given affection and kindness from outside, or by discipline, spiritual exercise and meditation from inside ?" you tell him.

>"What you said last is true, only if you're not fully corrupted. But the souls of these woman are too far gone, They have been corrupted for too long. Their only hope is to drown the corruption, like how you create a fire to smother another fire. They'll never be the same, but you can give them a chance, if you want." he explain.

>"I understand . . . I suppose I should be getting back to surface. Lazarus and my friends are probably worried, and who knows what else has transpired . . . Actually, is there a way you could get me to my friends so i don't have to go through the city like this ?" you ask him.

>"Don't forget you are with a god. I going to teleport us to your hotel, And don't worry about your attire, your armor is just here, you should change before we leave." he tell you.

>"Alright. Say, will I be able to talk to you again? I suppose in dreams ?" you inquire.

>"To make sure they beleive I'm still here, I'll keep a faint presence in the realm of dreams, so we can still talk there. But if you want to talk in person, draw the symbol you saw on the stone, put your ahnd in the center, and call my name. Now go put your armor on, we have to go." he say.

>"Okay, I'll prepare myself . . . Oh, and thanks for everthing, my little dear." you say with a smug smile.

>"You know, If I wasn't so grateful, I would have smited you for your insolence." he tell you.

>"Don't lie, you love this surname, and the head pats too." you smile.
.
.

You took a while to put your armor back on, Metraton turned away, to respect your privacy. Finally, when you are ready, he takes you in his arms again, and you hear a faint hiss, you look at the ground to see a blue circle forming around you, and smoke coming out of it.

>"Get ready, it could be unpleasant." he answer.

Suddenly, you are engulfed by a blue smoke, and a loud BAMF resonates, making your ears ring. As suddenly as it appeared, the smoke disappears, and you are on the balcony of your room at the hotel. It's big day, it must be the middle of the afternoon. You take a deep breath, enjoying the fresh air, and the warmth of the sun. Metraton puts you on the ground, and smiles.

>"Here we are, Freya, this is where I say goodbye, I wish you good luck, and I hope we meet again, I thank you again for everything you did for me." he say.

You smile and wave him to approach, he bows slightly, and you pat his head. Metraton scoff at this.

>"You need to stop doing this everytime." he say.

>"I refuse." you simply answer.

The god, sigh, but smile at you. He starts to float again, and teleports, disappearing in a blue cloud. You are now alone on the balcony. Well, it was an interesting experience. You wonder how everyone will react. You turn around and head for the door. But, when you are about to open it, you hear something inside. It sounds like moans, and the kind that actually belong in the bedroom.

If we disturb the dark elf and the boi, we can offer her to heal the scar, right? Or at least the eye.
Maybe she wants to keep the scar as warriors badge but the eye could be too practical to pas up.

You deicde to peep inside, it's rude to barge in like that. You open the door discretely, and you understand where these moans come from. Ruriska and Dillon are on the bed. The boy is naked, hands and feet tied to the bed. He has marks all over his body, traces of bites, scratches, and hickeys, with the occasional bruises. Ruriska is wearing a very revealing black leather set. She holds a whip in her right hand, and in her left hand a chain, connected to a collar around Dillon's neck.

They are really going at it, the hips of the dark elf going up and down vigorously, her tongue hanging out of her mouth as she moan in ecstasy. Dillon is just as lost in the pleasure, moving his pelvis with strength and energy. The two of them are covered in sweat, and Ruriska seems to greatly appreciate the efforts of her subordinate.

>"AHHN !! YESSSS !! HARDER !! KEEP SLAMMING IT INTO ME-- AAHHNN! DON'T YOU DARE STOPPING OR I'LL TEAR YOUR FUCKING BALLS OOOFFAAAGHHH--BY THE GOOOODDDS !!! SO GOOD !! OAAAHHH--”

Woah, she's a screamer alright. You think it's best to wait for them to finish, you're not that evil.
.
.
.
By the gods, they have been at it for at least an hour ! Youcan't really say anything, with how you and Lazarus can do the same, but still !
Finally, Dillon grunts heavily, and Ruriska lets out a primordial scream as she's shaking with pleasure. She takes a deep breath for a few seconds, then lies down on Dillon and kisses him affectionately on the cheek.

>"Good boy." she smile.

You think it's time to enter. You open the door which make the two lovebirds turn their head in surprise. When they see you, they blush heavily.

>"MY QUEEN !! HOW DID YOU . . . BUT YOU . . . AND YOU." stutter the dark elf.

>"Calm down Ruriska, I'll explain everything . . . And don't worry I won't say anything, about how you used our bedroom for . . . fraternizing. In any case, You both have great endurance, nicely done." you smirk.

The two lovers look ashamed, and Ruriska untie the embarrassed boy. They start getting dressed shamefully, and when they are both presentable, Dillon look at you and frown.

>"My Queen, is everyhting alright ? You seem . . . different. Your eyes are really strange. What happened to you when you where gone ?" ask the boy.

>"Actually, where did you go ? Our lord didn't tell us anything, and he left with Irene and Silviana in the morning, and he has not come back yet." say Ruriska.

How do you reply ?
>Tell them the truth.
>Lie to them.
>Wait until everyone is here.

>"I told you, I'll tell you everyhting, but later. That's a long story, so I'll wait until everyone is here." you say.

>" . . . We understand, we'll wait." replies Dillon.

It looks like they are both a little tense. You think you can do something for Ruriska, so they will have an idea of what happened.

>"Ruriska, If you had the opportunity to heal your face, would you do it ?" you ask.

>". . . Us dark elves are not ashamed of having some tasteful scars, but we care about our face. If I could, I would, but no doctor can help me, the tissues are dead or have cicatrized." she tell you.

>"Ruriska, can you sit on yhe bed, I need you to trust me right now, and to not ask any questions." you tell her.

Her and Dillon look at each other, worried, but she obey, and go sit on the bed, you get colser to her, and you gently put your right hand on her face.

>"Hum, Freya ? Wha are you doing ?" she inquire.

>"Shhhhh, trust me." you smile.

You focus on your new powers, and your hand begins to shine. There is a faint hiss, and Ruriska grunt, as some smoke is emanating from her face. She try to move away, but you put your other hand on her shoulder, and you promise here taht everything is alright. Slowly, the destroyed side of her face is dissapearing, her left eyes recover its natural color, and her ear is slowly growing back. After some time she's completely healed, the skin of her face completely smooth, as if nothing happened. Dillno is looking shocked at what you did, and Rurisak is touching her face.

>" . . . What ? WHAT ? how did you . . . " she start.

>"It's just a taste of what I need to explain to all of you, but I tought a little demonstration is better than a thousand words. So how do you feel ?" you ask her.

She get a tear coming out of her healed eye. At this moment, you hear someone entering the main room. It must be Lazarus. You ask Dillon and Ruriska to come with you, and the three of you exit your room to meet your husband.

In the main room, Lazarus, Silviana and Irene have just came back from their trip, Shelur was with Aleanor and they were cleaning their weapons. Murata was meditating, and opened his eyes when your husband came back. All turn their heads when you enter the room, as you open the door with a lot of noises. They are surpised when they see you, and shocked when they see Ruriska without her half burned face.

>"Freya ! You came back !" shout Silviana.

>"Wait, Ruriska, her face, she's healed ? How is that possible ?" say Irene.

>"Freya . . . what happened to you ? What happened in this damned temple ?" ask Lazarus, as he approaches you, and looks at you straight in the eyes.

You look at your husband and your friends, all waiting for you to say something. You give them a bright smile.

>"Oh you guys won't believe how much dying sucks !"

How do you explain this to everyone ?

Tell the truth. Maybe warn them before that some of it is knowledge that could put them in even greater danger than being close to us already does and that they can leave before we tell so they don’t bear the burden, otherwise it is a matter of utmost secrecy for now.

Talking of the deer god can be avoided by saying we’ve followed vision in our dreams and undergone trials to unlock our potential, which is technically true, if we want to leave that bit for Lazarus alone.

You look at Lazarus right in the eyes, you missed him so much, you don't hesitate, and you throw yourself in his arms, giving him a steamy kiss, your tongue wrestling with his. You stay like that for some seconds, then finally break the kiss.

>"I missed you." you smile.

Lazarus was surprised by your assertivity right now, but smile at you.

>"Well, I see you are still attracted by my charms." he chuckle.

You shake your head at his words, what a dork. You turn your head to all your friends.

>"Everyone, First thing first, I want to tell you that I'm fine. I will explain everything in detail, let's go to my room, we can discuss without interruptions." you say.

Everyone nod, and you all go to your bedroom. You close the door when everyone is inside, and you close the windows and draw the curtains.

>"Freya, what are you doing ?" ask Silviana.

>"I want to be sure no one is listening, what i'm about to tell you can bring troubles, and I need to tell you before we start, some of the knowledge I'm about to tell could put every single one of you in even greater danger than being close to me already does. I don't want to force this on you, so if you want to leave, you . . . " you tell them.

>"Stop right there. You think I followed you all the way to leave you like that ? I don't care what happened, my duty is to protect you. I won't run from the truth." answer Irene.

>"I won't let you carry this burden alone, I told you before, I'll alway stay by your side." say Silviana.

>"I'll never let you alone, I owe you my freedom." smile Shelur.

>"We are already in deep shit, so this won't change anything." say Ruriska.

>"I SWEAR I'LL PROTECT YOU FROM ANY HARM, MY QUEEN !!" shout Dillon.

>"It would be dishonorable not to support my master." nod Murata.

Aleanor give you a thumb up, affirming her desire to stay and listen.

You get a big smile on your face, happy to have such loyal friends.

>"Then it's decided, and remember, everything i'm going to say is a matter of utmost secrecy for now." you warn them.

All your companions nod their head in affirmation, and you start the tales of your trials. You explain to them that you had visions, in your dreams, and this is one of the reasons why you came here. You tell them about how you had to enter the temple, and the trials you had to go through. The claustrophopic tunnel, the freezing water, the bridge of bones over the pit of flames, the deadly gas, and finally the judgment of the dead.

You explain to them how you passed the trials, how you froze the acid, and how you killed the sovereign of the crypt, which makes Ruriska and Shelur laugh. When you start to talk about the final room, you don't tell them about Metraton, but you explain the pain you had to go through.

Finally, you explain the last test, and without speaking of Metraton, you tell them that you had to die, and resuscitated, in order to unlock your powers. You have traces of these trials, your eyes in particular, you also show them the blue healing, and you talk to them about the stone on your navel.

>"What were you thinking ? It was extremely dangerous ! What would have happened if you died down there ?" say Irene angry.

>"I was ready, I knew it was dangerous, I had to do this." you tell her.

>"Freya, you are too rash, We coul have helped you." say Silviana.

>"No, it was something I had to do it alone, I didn't want to make you worry about me, that's why I left while you were sleeping." you explain.

>"I understand, you took a risk, a calculated risk. We rae lucky you're good at math, my queen." joke Ruriska.

>"And what I discovered was far beyong what I could have imagined. You saw Ruriska ? I was able to heal her face, and I can do so much more." you explain.

You ask Aleanor to take of her helmet, she do it, puzzled at your request. Then you gently put your hand on her throat, and you focus on your healing powers, you hand glow, and Aleanor hiss in pain, but she doesn't move. Everyone look as the scars disspear. When it's over, you barely brok a sweat, and Aleanor cough loudly.

>"Ack, *cough* cough*, aaahaaa . . . . .* Wa. . . Wha. . . Wat ? My . . . Voi ?" she start.

She has a hoarse voice, as if she was sick. But her voice is feminine, and strong. Everyone look at you, incredulous.

>"By the Light !" whisper Dillon.

>"FREYA ! You . . . What you just did is at the same level as a divine miracle." Say Silviana.

>"Because the power I got are at a divine level. Impressive, I know." you smile.

Everyone keep asking you all kind of questions, and you do your best to answer them. During your explanations, Lazarus didn't say anything. He was silently listening to everything. After a while, your friends leave your room, thinking about what you told them. They seem to understand why you did this, even if they beliive this was completely crazy.

You are now alone with Lazarus, he get up and hug you possessively.

>"I'm really glad that you are safe, I knew you were strong, but I feared something really bad could have happened. Tell me, when you said you died, to complete the last trial, how did this happen ? How did you die ?" he ask you.

How do you reply ?

You sigh, he has the right to know, he trusted you when you told him about your dreams, and when you ask him to let you go, he has to accept. You decide to tell him absolutely everything.

>"Lazarus, before I tell you anything, promise me that you won't freak out." you tell him.

>"Why ? I'm supposed to freak out ?" he ask.

>"Lazarus . . ."

>"Okay, don't look at me like that. I promise, I'll try to stay calm." he tell you.

>"Good. Remember the Deer God ? Well, it turn out he actually was an imprisonned god, and his true name is Metraton." you start.

>"Metraton ? The celestial scribe ? The ultimate mage ?" exclaim your husband.

>" . . . Yes ? I don't know about the other thing you said, but he is Metraton. You know something about him ?" you ask.

>"Freya, in my childhood, my mother did my education, and taught me many things, and especially the divine things. You know how the God of the world, the one you call the gods of the North or gods of nature, appeared later, when the Light and the Darkness finished creating the world ?"

>"Yes, what of it ?"

>"There was an angel, the highest angel, on the same level as Gabriel or Michael. He was tasked with supervising, cataloging and archiving everything that goes on in the world, from the smallest insect to the biggest ancient monster. But slowly, Metraton saw the beauty everywhere in the world. Creation, destruction, everything happening without divine intervention. He wanted to convince god to leave the world alone, explaining that the intervention of the Light, and the conflict with the darkness should be done on the divines plan of existence, like before the world was created. He came into conflict with the creator, and was killed by the other angel and archdemons for treason and rebellion." explain Lazarus.

>"I never heard about this legend." you say.

>"Because that's something so ancient I think even the Church of the Light ignores this story. And you say he was imprisoned ?"

>"Yes, It look like he was still used as an observer by the Light and The Darkness."

>"So what happened afterward ?"

>"When he was free, he helped me, and explained the last two trials . . . . And he killed me, piercing my heart with the sword i brought back." you say.

Lazarus say nothing, but you see his rage slowly growing on his face, suddendly he shout.

>"I'M GOING TO RIP HIS FUCKING SPINE !!!"

>"Lazarus ! You promised !"

>"How do you want me to calm down? That damned cervid is actually a fallen god, he dares to ask you to release him, and he has the nerve to kill you ?"

>"Lazarus, I'm fine, I accepted this. Listen, I was really dead, everything was dark, and I almost forgot everything. It was as if I was no one, and I didn't care. Only my memories allowed me to overcome this trial. I survived because I wanted to see everyone, I wanted to live with my friends and family."

You get closer to him, and touch his cheek with your hand.

>"I wanted to spend your life with you. Death offered ease, I have chosen the suffering, the pain, I have chosen life. I have chosen you."

Lazarus take your hand, and close his eyes.

>"One day, I'm going to find out you tried to tame a dragon." he joke.

>". . . . Now that's an idea !" you smile.

>"Please don't." Your husband sigh. "So, what happened after your little trip in death ?"

>"I woke up, and Found out my body changed, you saw my eyes, the scar on my arm, and . . . "

You undress, and go completely naked, you show your body, and Lazarus frown when he see the small stone on your navel. He crouch in front of you, and carefully touch it. That tickles.

>"I can use several powers, but apart from these marks, I'm fine." you tell him.

>"So nothing else changed ? I'm glad. Now it's over, you don't have to worry about it anymore. You are with me, we can go back to our life together." he say as he embraces you.

While you do the same, You think about something. With your full potential unlocked, your soul is now more powerful, maybe powerful enough to . . . have children with him. Maybe.

Do you want to tell this to Lazarus now ? Or do you want to wait until you're back home ?

You think it's best to wait to be home to tell him, you aren't even sure you can do it, you know your soul is more powerful now, but is that enough ? For now you just enjoy the moment, in the arms of your husband . . . naked. You finally remember your state of dressing when you feel his hands grabbing your healthy buttock. You playfully slap him on the chest.

>"My lord ! Your wife just told you she had to die, and you, you molest her bottom ! You, sir, are a pervert !" you say in fake outrage.

>"I can't help it, you are in my arms, your lovely body against mine, completely naked and defensless. As a Dark Lord, how could I not take advantage of the situation, and enjoy the beauty of my wife ?" he replies.

>"How romantic. Trust me, right now I would love nothing more than testing the resilience of the bed. But we still need prepare the next step of our trip, remember ?" you smile.

>" . . . So be it. We are going to prepare everything. But be ready, we'll spend a lot of time on the roads, and as soon as night falls, I'll make full use of our tent. If you think the nights since our departure were hectic, I'll prove you wrong." grin your husband, his hands still on your backside.

>"We were going at it for hours !" you say.

>"And that's was just a warm-up." he tell you.

You bite your lower lip, a little worried, but excited. Oh well, he's right, it's not like you'll have a lot of other things to do at night. You separate from each other, but not before he slap your rear. You get dressed, but before you exite the room you think about something.

>"Lazarus, tell me, what were you doing in the city with Irene and Silviana ? Did you buy or bring something back ?" you ask him.

>"I was just looking for anything that can be useful for us, you know, to spy or learn more about our enemies."

>"With Irene I understand, but why taking Silviana."

>". . . . To not raise suspicion, a maid to help me, and a body guard to protect me. See, nothing suspicious, nothing." say your husband.

. . . Is he hiding something from you ? No, it's something he would do, being the dork lord he is, trying to study his enemies from within. You don't say anything else, and you exit your room.

In the main room, everyone is around Aleanor, They are asking a lot questions, as Aleanor is trying her best to answer them all. They gave her a glasses of water, and they wait everytime she stop to catch her breath. When she see you and Lazarus exiting the room, she get up, and she kneels before you.

>"My queen, you have accomplished a miracle. First you deem me worthy to be at your service, and then you use the powers you have obtained with your blood to heal me. You are the most caring and holiest person I have ever met. Know that even if my contract with you ends, I wish to remain at your service. My sword and my life are yours until I die." say Aleanor.

Now that she's able to speak correctly, her voice is quite fruity, but confident. She raise her head when you put your hand on her shoulder.

Aleanor, you are a free woman, if you ever wanted to leave, I would have destroyed the contract, so you could have been free. All of my companions are here because they wanted to. I'm glad that you want to stay with us of your own free will, and know that nothing could make me happier than that." you smile at her.

The Valkyrie have tears starting to form at the corners of her eyes, but she wipethem quickly, and get up when you remove your hand. She nod at you.

>"Now everyone. We officially finished what we wanted to do here, if you have nothing else that's important to do, we are going to leave for the Old Forest. As we came without horses or carriage, we'll buy them here. Irene, I want you to go to the port, and tell the captain of our ship that we are going further inland, he don't have to wait for us. I'll write an official letter for him and the crew of the ship, so they'll be rewarded once they're back in the north." you explain.

>"Yes my queen !" she salute.

>"Ruriska, you take Dillon and Murata, and you go to the reception of the hotel and pay for our stay, then you go and look for an escort. Not too much just a bunch of mercenaries or adventurers looking for quick gold." you say.

>"It shall be done." she bow.

>"Good, Silviana, with Shelur and Aleanor, you'll buy all the supplies will need for a long journey. We should be able to buy food and everything else in the villages, but it doesn't hurt to be ready, just in case." you tell her.

>"Consider it done." smile your best friend.

You think about what you could do, and then it hit you. What happened in the Temple District could be dangerous, if Hagëndorff learn that a woman entered the temple, he'll be suspicious, as you told him you wanted to visit it. You should go now, so people and the guard can see you, and to create an alibi. You say this to Lazarus and he understand, and say he's going ot go with you, the royal couple visiting the Temple district is a good way to be sure the Great Emperor doesn't get suspicious.

You get changed, and you exit the hotel. You take one of the coach who wait for customers in front of the hotel, and you make sure a lot of people see you. You tell the coachman to drive you to the Temple District. After a while, the coach stop in the central plaza of the district, and you notice a lot of people gathered, looking at the temple of Metraton . . . Or where the temple was ! Now, there is nothing, only black marks, as if something burned. There is also a LOT of guards, at least a hundred. You get closer and ask someone.

>"Excuse me sir, can you tell me what happened here ?"

>"Something incredible, my lady. You see, this where a mysterious temple, called the temple of Metraton, once stood. There was no door, and a lot of people tried to get inside. The rumor say that this morning, someone actually managed to get inside. No one know who, and after this person entered, the temple closed again, and after some minutes, it dissapeared instantly in a blue smoke, leaving nothing." explain the man.

>"I see, that is really incredible, how could this happen ?" you say, faking concern.

>"No one know, but the guards didn't lose any time. They colsed down the perimeter, and questioned everyone. But it look like they found nothing. The only thing that's sure is that it was a peasant." the man tell you.

You thank him for his time, and you leave. You smile as several people turned around to see who talked, and you are sure they saw you. With your companions around town, and with Lazarus going out this morning, and the two of you coming here, with a lot of witnesses, you are sure, Hagëndorff has no way of knowing to was you.

You take you time to visit the distric, and you even entered the cathedral of the Light. Its enormous tower of white stone give you a feeling of power and humility at the same time.

The interior is really wealthy, with marble, gold, and luxuriousl carved wood. Everywhere around you, there is stained glass, representing scene from the holy book, angel, and saints. You walk around admiring the arts and artifacts around you, when you notice that Lazarus stopped looking at something. You go back to him, and you understand why he stopped. In front of you is a great stained glass of Saint Ariel Justinia, the mother of Lazarus. It's highly detailed, she's in full armor, with great wings of pure white, her golden blond hair flowing, a caring and gentle smile on her face. Under the stained glass, behind steel and gold bars, her armor, shield and sword, with a copy of the holy book . . .and you think that's some of her hair ! There is a lot of people, worshippers, pilgrims and other, praying around her altar. You go to one of them.

>"I'm sorry sir, I don't want to interrupt you, but can you tell me why are you praying for the high priestess Ariel ?"

>"You need to go to church more often my child. I'm praying for Saint Ariel Justinia. Don't you know that she was canonized ?"

>"I live far from here, and our church is old. Can you tell me more ?"

>"Of course. You see, even when she was alive, Saint Ariel was a pure woman of the faith, the most holy woman that ever lived. She fought against the darkness for year, helping everyone in need, battling monsters of the dark and demons. Millions looked up to her, and revered her. She die fighting to protect us from a demonic incursion,killing even an archdemon ! Alas, her wounds were to much, and she dies, consumed by the fire of the battlefield." explain the man.

>"Tell me old man, what are those objects under her portrait." Ask your husband.

>"Oh but those are holy artifacts, her personal possession, and everything that remain of her. Found on the battlefield where she died." replies the man.

>"Thank you, we won't bother you any longer." declare Lazarus.

The old man go back to his prayers, and you are now alone with Lazarus, who look at his mother.

>"Those are fake, she took everything with her, when she fleed. They even got her face wrong, she was more beautiful than that." whisper your husband.

He sigh, and close his eyes.

>"Do you think she would be disappointed with what I have become ? I always did what I wanted to do, she told me to always follow my heart and that I did it, and I did a lot of bad things . . . and I do not regret it. The thing that haunts me is that if she was alive, I would make her cry." say your husband.

Do you want to say something ? Or say nothing and leave ?

You husband sigh again, and look at the portrait of his mother again. You lean your head against his body, and gently squeezes his hand a little more.

>"But I'm sure she would always welcome you with a kind smile and an embrace. A good mother loves her child no matter what, you are her son, and she gives impression of a very good lady. I wish I could meet her." you smile.

Lazarus smile at you. You stay like that for some time, then you exit the Great Cathedral of the Light. You wanted to do one last thing, to visit the non-human district. Lazarus accepts, but asks you to stay by his side, the various races must not really like humans walking around in their neighborhood. You take the coach, and after a while, you are in front of a guarded gate, with several soldiers, armed with crossbow, pikes and bastard swords.

>"I'm sorry, but if you want to enter, you have to go by foot. A coach is an easy target. Do you want one of my men to . . . " start a guard.

He stop talking when he notice Lazarus. With a man like him, you don't need an escort. You exit the coach, and enter the western district. The first thing you notice is the stench, the buildings are decrepit, and there is garbage everywhere. There are all sorts of races here even humans, and the streets are filled with homeless, beggars, sick, and prostitutes. More than once you see someone being beaten up in an alley. This place is worse than Drack's Keep the first time you arrived.

Lazarus has placed his hand around your waist and keeps you close to him. It wouldn't be a problem for him to kill nayone who try to hurt you, but he is very protective, don't want you to get even a scratch. You look around, Maybe you could help those people ? Maybe you can try to tell them about your empire ?

If you want, roll me 1d100, best out of three.
If you don't want, you'll leave.

You try to find a way to try and explain to the non-humans that they can come to the north. you try to talk with some of the non-human in the street, but they avoid you, or don't reply when you talk to them. A troll even growled at you, but fleed when Lazarus gave him his glare of doom. You need to change your strategy, they don't trust a human. You go in a run-down tavern, and all the heads turn when a beautiful woman with a big warrior in black armor enter. You go to the barman, a goblin, and try to ask for rumors, but he tell you to just buy something or get out. You try to talk with some of the customers, but they seem to avoid you. In the end, a group of gnoll come to you, and ask you what a woman like you is doing here, and why do you want to talk. They are threatening, but you just smile, when Lazarus get closer to you, and put a hand on your shoulder, making the gnolls, abck down a little.

>"I want to talk because I a a proposition, something that could help all the inhabitant of this district." you say.

>"Oh ? And how would you do that, my Lady ? Last time someone said that, All the fools who followed him became slaves." say a black furred gnoll

>"Did you hear about what happened in the north ? A dark Lord conquered all of the Northern kingdoms, and established his rule to everyone, human and non-human."

>"We heard rumors. What does this have to do with us ?" ask another gnoll.

>"Well, a lot of thing changed. First, a great number of nobles died, leaving a lot of lands under the dark lord direct control. and some law was established, It's called the Demi-Humans Accords, and it give freedom to the non-humans tribes. Their chief became vassals and they gained lands to live in peace, and even keep their own laws on their lands." you explain.

The gnolls laugh at you.

>"HAHAHAHA ! You need to think of something else, I was in the north last spring, and all I saw was destruction. I don't think the dark lord would care about making law. Now get out of here, you don't belong here." say the gnoll.

You try to explain more, but they leave, and you notice a lot of the tavern customers are looking at you with dark face, you notice one of the troll has a knife. You sigh, get up and exit the tavern. All thing considered, you did quite well. When you get in the streets you are stopped by a minotaur, a female. Lazarus draw his sword with supernatural speed, but the minotaur raise her hands.

>"I'm sorry, I just want to talk, please !" she say as she close her eyes.

Lazarus stop, his fiery red eyes locked on her, ready for anything. You get closer.

>"You know, it's a very bad idea to surprise an armed warrior. What do you want ?" you ask.

>"I . . . I hear what you said inside. About the north. Is that the truth ? Are the non-human free over there ?"

>"The customers inside were suspicious when we told them, so why do you want to know ?" inquire Lazarus.

>"I . . . My lord, I'm desperate. I work every day, before dawn, and until nightfall at the port, I carry merchandise, tons of merchandise, and if I break something they hit me, if I defend myself they whip me. I have no parents, and I have to to take care of three little brothers. I can't go on. I can barely buy food for them, and If I get sick, I won't be able to buy medicine, and I'll be fired. If this continues, I will have to. . . . sell myself." explain the minotaur.

She get on her knee.

>"It's hell here, like a lot of people, my grandparents were deported here, Because they fought for their lands. If we try and leave to establish a village in the wild, sooner or later, humans will come and kill us. We have no hope. If there is any chance that my brothers will avoid slavery, gangs or death, I will take it." she say, her head on the ground.

You kneel squat in front of her, and offer her your hand.

>"What I said is the truth, I won't promise you a life without hardship, but You'll live, without having to fear for the future of your little brothers." you smile.

The female minotaur look at your hand, puzzled, then carefully extend hers, and take it.

>"I accept, what should I do for you ?" she ask.

>"For me, nothing. I AM doing this for you. Listen, tomorrow, a ship will leave for the north, I'll give you a letter, you'll give it to the captain of his ship. This ship could take at least two dozens passengers, so I want you to go take your brother, and talk to anyone you know. If they are willing, they can come with you. And You need to spread this news, every non-humans can leave the Hagëndorff Empire, and go to the north. There, you will have a chance, and hope." you explain to her.

She get up, and the three of you go back inside th tavern. You ask for a parchment, a feather, ink, and red wax. You pay for all of it, and start writing. you show the letter to the minotaur, and she go wide eyed when she see you closing it, with Lazarus using his ring to seal it. You give it to her.

>" . . . Who are you ?" she ask.

>"People who want to help. Now go, you don't have any time to lose." answer Lazarus.

The minotaur nod, and she leave, it's dark outside, night has fallen. You think it's time to go back to the hotel. You may not not have succeeded in advertising your empire, but with this, rumors are going to spread in this district.

You are in luck, Irene was able to find the ship and the captain immediatly. He told her that they found a merchant who want to send some supplies in the north So they'll get a nice bonus thank to hteir salary, tis job and their reward. She gave him the letter, and the ship will leave tomorrow. Irene did something more, she wrote a letter to your parents, telling them that everything is okay in the south, and that you are fine. She also explain that the captain saidhe had some visitors, just before dawn, but they gave him a letter, and everything if good for him. Where should he send them when they'll arrive ?
>Drack's keep (old capital).
>Drackenburg (new capital).
>Ordamark.
>Non-humans lands.
>Other (write in).

After paying the hotel, Ruriska found a group of seasonned mercenaries. Those veterans are renonwed professional, and willing to escort you for a good price. Their records are clean and impressive, and even if some would say that a bunch of old man and woman as an escort is stupid, Ruriska say that's exactly why they are good. As she say, "there is bold mercs, there is old mercs, but there is no old, bold mercs !"
15 mercs as escort : they take 2000G upfront, and 7500 when the job is done. They have their own supplies.
Lazarus say he's the one who'll pay them.

97 = high success
Silviana did wonders, buying enough food and rations for 1 month of travel. She has chosen foods that keep for a long time, and even spices. She says she'll use them to cook the rations so they'll be more tasteful. Shelur was confident in her hunting skill (Silviana chuckled at this.), so you may be able to eat meat at dinner. Your maid managed to get all this for practically nothing, knowing where and what to buy. Of course, a girl alone at the market could be an easy target for pickpockets and other miscreants, but with Shelur and Aleanor at her side, nothing could happen to her, the greenskin and the Valkyrie protecting her like two wolf protect their puppies.

You went off in search of horses for the trip. As it's spring, you do not have to worry about frost or snow, just potential rain or mud. You think fast, sturdy horses are the best choice. Of course, you can also take a car, it will slow you down, but you will be comfortable. You could also take a luxurious coach, with enough room for everyone to sit, but you'll be really slow.
What do you chose ? (Lazarus will pay for it)
>Horse for everyone.
>Normal coach.
>Luxurious coach.
>Other (write in).

The captain is going to send the non-humans asylum seeker to Drackenburg, the new capital. You are sure they are going to find a lot of work and a house there.

You also write a letter to your parents, more formal than Irene's. You confirm to them that everything is going very well here. You also ask them to build larger warehouses for the resources, as well as increase the size of the imperial storerooms, larders and grain silos, in addition to asking the farmers and nobles to increse the stocks capacity, to be sure the threat of famine you had this winter won't happen again. Of course, all that accept are going to receive an imperial subsidy, but you tell your parent to send team of inspectors to see if they are going to really use the money for their task.

You decide to go with a luxurious carriage. Nothing to extravagant, but worthy of a noble. It's a big coach, with enough room for 8 people. It is pulled by magnificent horses, strong and enduring. But now you notice something, Lazarus won't be able to get inside if everyone else take a seat, as he take two seatn or one and a half without his armor.

Your husband just laugh, saying that he doesn't need to have a seat, he love to travel on horse back. You think no normal horse in the world can carry him. But he just say that everythin is going to be alright.

Finally, everything is ready. The 15 mercs are waiting for you with your coach. When you exit the hotel, you get inside the carriage with everyone, except Lazarus. He jsut stay outside his eyes closed.

>"What are you doing dear ?" you ask.

He doesn't reply, he raise one of his arm, and you feel strong tremors all around, and black smoke and flames appear before your husband. Suddenly, there is a loud thump and terrible henings. In front of your husband is his mount, always so immense, with his black mane, and his legs of fire. All the passerby look with a mix of fear and awe. The dread knight smirk, and pat his infernal mount. He saddle up, and go in front of the cortege.

>"Everything is done here. Now let's go, to the old forest." he order the mercenaries.

The mercs replies with discipline and sound you depart for the east, to meet Queen Titania. You hope it'll be easier than with Filarion. After half an hour, you exit Lynn by the great entrance gate, and after an hour, the capital is behind you. You are now in the heart of the Great Empire of Hagëndorff.

Roll me 1d100, best out of three.
