The Thirteenth Throne

IGOR'S DIARY #8

DEAR DIARY,

WITH SERITHIAL IN OUR HANDS, IGOR AND FRIENDS RETURNED TO KORVOSA. THE CITY WAS IN DIRE STRAITS WHEN WE ARRIVED. QUEEN ILIOSA WAS PREPARING THE CITY FOR ITS FINAL DAYS, AND WE NEEDED TO ACT FAST.

IN OUR ABSENCE, HOWEVER, IT WAS DISCOVERED BY OUR ALLIES THAT FALANA HAD BEEN KEEPING THE PRINCESS IN STASIS BEFORE SHE HAD ACTUALLY PASSED AWAY. THIS COMPLICATED MATTERS, AS THE ORIGINAL PLAN WAS TO GIVE THE THRONE TO THE PRIME MINISTER.

THE REMAINING REBEL FORCES, LEAD BY KROFT, ISHANI, VENCARLO, AND OTHERS, BANDED WITH US TO PLANT THE SEEDS OF A REBELLION. TOGETHER WE REMOVED THE FALSE HERO TRIFACCIA FROM HIS PLACE, REVEALING HIM TO BE AN INFERNAL. WEARING BLACKJACK’S CLOAK OBTAINED FROM VENCARLO, WE REVIVED THE HERO BLACKJACK IN THE EYES OF THE PEOPLE. WITH GROWING STRENGTH, WE TOOK THE STREETS AND TOPPLED STATUES OF THE QUEEN. THE QUEEN’S GREY MAIDEN FORCES WERE SCATTERED ACROSS THE CITY AS THE RIOTS SPREAD. IGOR AND FRIENDS FACED THEIR MOST THREATENING FOE, A DRAGONSPAWN UNDER THE QUEEN’S WILL. FROM THIS FIGHT WE FOUND THAT SABINA MERRIN WAS ACTUALLY AN ALLY WORKING FOR US AS AN INSIDER IN THE CASTLE.

LATER, WE HATCHED A PLAN TO LURE TOGOMOR, ANOTHER OF THE QUEEN’S PAWNS, OUT OF THE CASTLE AND INTO THE ACADAMAE WHERE HE WAS SCHEDULED TO GIVE A GRADUATION SPEECH. OF COURSE, THERE WAS NO SPEECH, AND INSTEAD TOGOMOR MET HIS DEATH AT THE HANDS OF US AND THE DILIGENT STUDENTS OF THE ACADAMAE. FROM HIS DEATH, WE FOUND FURTHER EVIDENCE THAT THE QUEEN HAD JOINED FORCES WITH INFERNALS TO ESTABLISH A SINISTER RULE OVER THE CITY.

AFTERWARDS, KROFT CAME TO REPORT THAT DUAYNE HAD JOINED FORCES WITH THE CYGNARAN AND WERE MARCHING OUTSIDE THE WALLS TO TAKE THE CITY. DUAYNE HAD APPARENTLY MADE A CONTRACT WITH GLORIA ARKONA AS WELL, AND TOGETHER THEY PLANNED ON TAKING THE THRONE FOR THEMSELVES. THEY HAD KIDNAPPED, OR RATHER, PERSUADED THE PRINCESS TO JOIN THEM AS WELL. DUAYNE HAD PLANNED ON MARRYING THE PRINCESS IN ORDER TO SEAL HIS PLACE AS KING. THERE WAS NOTHING WE COULD DO AT THE WALLS, SO INSTEAD WE MADE A MOMENTARY TRUCE AND LET THEM INSIDE UNTIL WE WERE ABLE TO MAKE A BETTER PLAN.

OUR LAST MOVE WAS TO INFILTRATE THE CASTLE AND TAKE DOWN THE QUEEN. DURING THIS TIME, WE FOUND THE SPIRIT OF THE KING’S BROTHER AT THE TOP OF THE CASTLE. WE WERE ABLE TO PUT HIM TO REST, AND ZELLARA AS WELL. HE GAVE US SOME VITAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE QUEEN’S BLOODWELL FROM WHICH SHE DRAWS POWER. SHE KEEPS IT HIDDEN IN THE THRONE ROOM, BUT IT IS VISIBLE IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR IT.

IN THE THRONE ROOM, WE FACED OFF AGAINST THE QUEEN AND HER BLOOD MAGIC. IT WAS A ROUGH BATTLE, AND WHEN WE THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE OVER, A HORRIFYING BEAST ABSORBED THE QUEEN AND TRAVELLED DOWNWARDS THROUGH THE FLOOR TO THE BASEMENTS.

TAKING A MOMENT TO BREATHE, WE MET UP WITH KROFT AND RETRIEVED THE PRIME MINISTER. BEFORE DUAYNE AND THE CYGNARANS WERE ABLE TO TAKE OVER THE CASTLE, WE MANAGED TO GIVE A SPEECH TO THE CITIZENS, USING THEIR LLAELESE PRIDE TO REJECT AND DRIVE OUT THE MOMENTARILY ALLIED CYGNARAN FORCES. WITH THAT, THE PRIME MINISTER TOOK PLACE AS THE NEW KING OF KORVOSA.

HOWEVER, THE FIGHT WAS NOT OVER. WE HEADED DOWN INTO THE BASEMENTS WHERE THE FOUL BEAST HAD TRAVELLED. AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CASTLE, WE FOUND THE BODY OF THE QUEEN FLOATING ABOVE A MASSIVE ORB OF BLOOD. THE QUEEN AWOKE. THE BLOOD POOL TRANSFORMED, AND A TERRIFYING DRAGON EMERGED. IN THE BATTLE THAT ENSUED, SEBASTIAN AND PHISHWHO HAD SNUCK IN WITH US UNDETECTEDNEARLY DIED. BUT WITH THE POWER OF SERITHIAL, PIERRE WAS ABLE TO PERMANENTLY DESTROY KAZAVON AND THE CROWN OF FANGS.

WITH THE DEATH OF QUEEN ILIOSA, THE CITY WAS ABLE TO FIND PEACE. THE PRIME MINISTER TOOK HIS PLACE ON THE THRONE, AND TO OUR SURPRISE, LORI HAD TAKEN PLACE AS PRINCESS BY DISGUISING HERSELF AS THE PREVIOUS PRINCESS. FALANA TOOK CHARGE AS THE NEW SURGEON GENERAL. SEBASTIAN RECIEVED HIS HONORARY DEGREE FROM THE ACADAMAE. PIERRE TOOK A POST LEADING THE CITY’S MILITARY FORCE WITH KROFT. I RETURNED TO LIAM’S RESTAURANT TO RE OPEN IT.

THERE IS PEACE FOR NOW. THE CITIZENS NO LONGER FEAR FOR THEIR LIVES OR THEIR FREEDOM. THERE ARE MORE BRIGHT FACES ON THE STREETS, AND PEOPLE ARE COMING BACK TO THE CITY. BUT EVIL NEVER RESTS, AND SO LONG AS IT EXISTS, I WILL BE THERE TO FACE IT.

- IGOR
