The Lance of Kresnik (Plotsys ID: 5)
Summary
Within the land of Rieze Maxia, where spirits and humans coexist, there exists a new technology known as Spyrix. With its use, humans may surpass their limits, harming and killing the spirits to gain power for themselves. The greatest Spyrix ever made, the Lance of Kresnik, sits within the heart of Fennmont, the capital of Rashugal; though it is unknown what they wish to do with such a device, Milla Maxwell's mission is clear, and she intends to lead those willing to follow into destroying every last trace of Spyrix within her world. It is unfortunate, then, that the plot goes beyond the simple existence of one powerful Spyrix.

Events So Far

  • 08/18/2014: Forces from all three factions have shown up to assist Milla in finding the large Spyrix at the heart of the Laforte Research Center in Fennmont. Unfortunately, after an encounter with Agria, she activated the Lance of Kresnik, draining everyone's mana and disabling them momentarily. Mir retrieved the activation key for the Lance, but not before the Four Great Spirits were asborbed by it, depowering Milla. The crew escaped through the water, and watched as the Lance was used to shield Fennmont from further assaults.
  • 08/19/2014: Jude, along with several members of the Union, went to Nia Khera, Milla's village, to help her resummon the Four Great Spirits. It failed, and Milla was revealed to no longer be above the need for food and rest.
  • 08/29/2014: Jude, Milla and a hired mercenary (Alvin) go to Kanbalar, in Auj Oule, to meet its king, Gaius. Many who wanted to assist came as well, and Gaius called upon his own allies to attend as well. Ideals clash over the fate of the Lance of Kresnik, and Gaius establishes his desire to unify Rieze Maxia, and the pivotal role of the Lance in his conquest.
  • 09/29/2014: Rashugal troops have been spotted in Hamil; Milla has sent her allies to investigate, and others happen to be there by chance. They encounter Elize and her 'stuffed toy' Teepo, as well as Jiao of the Chimeriad. The Rashugal troops are pushed out, the village is convinced to tolerate Elize in the future, and Elize has joined the party for the time being.

Major Players/NPCs (Party Members)

  • Jude Mathis: A medical student from Fennmont, and another primary Union-side hook. Everything goes wrong for this normal boy when it turns out Fennmont is housing Spyrix.
  • Alvin: A mercenary, supposedly hired by someone from Nia Khera to watch over Milla.
  • Elize Lutus & Teepo: A young girl and her stuffed toy, met in Hamil. For some reason the villagers really did not like her, and Jiao had a particular interest in keeping her safe.

Major Players/NPCs (Rashugal)

  • King Nachtigal: The current ruler of Rashugal.
  • Gilland: The king's advisor.

  • Jiao: A former bandit turned warlord within Auj Oule.
