  Alliance South Michigan welcomes you back to Dragonreach.

The Kingdom of Dragonreach is enjoying peace. Spring has come, and with it a sense of pride. Farmers happily plant their crops, the sounds of commerce fill market places all across Eastlands. Lycergis has proclaimed a feast is to be had to honor the adventurers, the army, and all those who gave blood to see the Great White Wyrm destroyed.

To most life seems good.

They don’t see the husk the Silverstar Legion has become, leaving enemies breathing room to grow. In the recent weeks, Bandits have gotten more ruthless in the Eastlands, avoiding Koroshi but making travel hazarderous in the other baronies.
Trouble has been brewing to the south of Eastlands and it has begun to spill over into Dragonreach.
People in Springdale remain afraid of the night and the horrors it brings.
Thorncryf has been dealing with escalating political chaos and violence.
All the while, a dark figure wanders the countryside and in her wake the same story…
disappearances.

April 8th One Day

Roger Hent, Joseph, The Rose Farmer? The newly named Duchy of Thorncryf has been home to some of largest legends. This area has been the same for as long as anyone can remember, and suddenly it’s changing. The page has finally turned.

Rumors of political tension and acts of aggression with the Freygurd Nation is plaguing the new duchy. Many believe that they’ve already started carrying out raids on Thorncryf. All the while, people whisper of Roger Hent, the former duke having survived and gathering an army to strike against Dragonreach.

As we turn to this next page of this book, Duke Hayward has requested the assistance of the adventuring community.

 

April 8th we’ll be hosting a one day at Proud Lake State Rec Area. We’ll start around 10 and play to whenever. You can find more details here.

The Storm Has Subsided (Teaser March 2017)

To all Adventurers,

We have taken the winter to lick our wounds, mourn our dead, and celebrate our victories. That must however end, as we look towards the spring with a renewed sense of purpose. While we have celebrated, and rested, Springdale has fought against problems day and night. Cutpurses think that they can continue to prey on my subjects. Horrors that emerge from the night to terrorize my people. The rest we have known, Springdale has not. I had thought felling the Great White Wyrm might have been enough but, it appears the enemies of Dragonreach need a reminder of what happens to those that cross us.

I have ordered several Knights, including Sir Mathis to a small encampment due south of Fort Aegis. The Knights have begun an investigation into the problems facing the people of Springdale, and will have reports ready for any who wish to give sword or spell in defense of the people. Sir Mathis is to ensure that any adventurers committed to our cause find purpose.

If you wish to heed this call, make your way to Fort Aegis on the 18th day in the month of March, there will be an escort ready to take you to the encampment.

By my hand,
Lycergis
King of Dragonreach

June 10th Teaser

At last the first great blow against the Dragon Bleak has been struck.
At last he is weakened enough to be mortal.
At last he recognizes our heroes exist.

Our next event is June 10th. Join us as we begin the journey towards the conclusion of the Bleak plot line. Or perhaps it will be the conclusion of the adventurers?

May 27-29 Event Teaser

Victory has favored our heroes. A great weapon against the formerly unstoppable force that is Bleak. Now they must risk more to use it. Many may die to his gaze alone in the attempt.

And should they be successful, what happens when a force of nature feels pain?

Preregistration has opened for our event. http://alliancelarp.com/forum/threads/pre-registration-2016-somi-season-opener-may27-29.32471/

We hope to see you all there.

2106 Season Trailer

King Lycergis awakes from his slumber. He looks over to the fireplace, nothing but ash. “I’ll have to remember to find a better attendant”. Lycergis puts on his robes as he looks out the window. The window is covered in ice. This winter seemed better then the previous to him but, Lycergis has seen many years and they’ve started to blend together. He exits his room, the echo from the door slamming shuts fills the entire fortress. Before breakfast, he always surveys his men. He walks with a limp now to stubborn to use a cane. He hobbles down to the courtyard. “Just where I left you men.”

He turns to his general. “How goes the training?” No response. Then to his knight, “And what of our battle plans?”. The white glow of his knights eyes seem to bright for how dreary it is outside.
“Nothing to report either? Very well, I see Aurelious is here for our meeting. I will see him now.”
Lycergis approaches the gold dragon. And this is where it starts to break down. Aurelious Goldthorn’s body refused to freeze, in fact it still emanates warmth. One of the only things in left in this world that does. Lycergis doesn’t like this, as it breaks him from his delusion. A least when the greater elf was frozen solid, his eyes have still kept glowing but, Lycergis could make sense of that.
The “king” of Dragonreach’s sanity starts to slip. He realizes he’s standing in a courtyard full of the bodies of the adventurers who rose up against Bleak and were crushed like ants. He looks back to his general, the Mystic Wood Elf’s blue skin screams back at him. His frozen face begs, no screams the question, “Why couldn’t you save us?”. He can hear all of their voices, as they cried out before they were forever encased in ice.
 He falls to his knees and tries to cover his ears to stop the voices. They start to overwhelm him. “WHY DID I SURVIVE?”  he yells. The voices suddenly stop. He looks to the mountains to the south, and sees two eyes set on him. And while he can’t see it, he knows the truth. Bleak is smiling at him.

Teaser October 2nd – 4th

“Will there be anything more, master?” the servant asks, fidgeting ever so slightly for fear of the wrath he may have invoked. Benance Dulounge scoffs, glancing less than subtly at the broken glass and wine now running free along the floor of his study.

“Yes. Clean that mess, and attend to our guests.  Have a drink if you need to stop the shaking; I’ll not have your nerves show tonight.  If the tapestry behind you has but one speck of red on it, or if the rug stains, my indulgence at your expense may go without bounds.” And he meant it, for there are few things Benance enjoys more than the suffering of those who disappoint him. He downs the remainder of his drink and rises toward the door.

“Of course, master…” the servant trails off, not sure how to word his question.

“Speak! Now, before I soil my evening wear with your blood.”

“Well… it’s just… Lord Cyrus, you don’t suppose–” Snorting, the Master of Indulgence turns to meet the attendant’s gaze, running a hand down his face to wipe away his disgust.

“Relax Albert,” softer tones creep into his voice, allowing for a brilliant crescendo as he presses onward toward the study’s exit. “The Master of Opulence would have killed you himself had you so offended him. With most of his towers fallen he will be hard pressed to cross into the physical realm come the next market day. Cyrus has never been one to rely on a single defense, even if it is a wendigo. At best, he may purchase you from me; your clumsy antics, though they cost me a fine bottle, clearly inspired him, and none too late based on his hurried exit.  You heard him as he left, same as I: ‘The bottle breaks, the shards are strewn, and thus the contents run free.’ Though if you wish to last long enough for him to make the offer, I suggest you clean that wine!” The door slams. Candles gutter out. In the dark, slight sobs echo over the clinking collection of glass.
