The RQ6 Roll of Honour

Re: The RQ6 Roll of Honour

Postby loz » Wed Mar 12, 2014 8:18 am

Eowald of Dumnonia
A pagan warlord of courage and renown. Veteran of Armorica, Lugh Vale, Badon Hill and the Battle for Britain. The man who slew Lancelot the Traitor. The warrior of the Silver Hand and husband of Yvayne, Goddess of the Wolf Water. He shall be remembered as the man who challenged Arthur and was both his greatest critic and his greatest friend. He was a warrior and a musician; a man firmly of the mortal world but one who ventured into Annwn and found love at last with the Lady of the Lake. He was the last man to wield Excalibur in battle and was the man who slew Nimue/Queen Mab and so delivered Britain from darkness.

Forni of Dumnonia
A simple man who served and honoured Mordred, remaining faithful to him until his death. Veteran of Armorica, Lugh Vale, Badon Hill and the Battle for Britain. He was the protector and lover of Nimue, a favoured disciple of Merlin, but ultimately became his own man and a true hero. He battled many demons, loved many women and was loved by those who served with him. Through Forni, Nimue's brutal magic was defeated and it was Forni's sacrifice that led to the collapse of the Ghost Fences protecting Lugh's Gorge from the armies of Britain. He crossed the Bridge of Swords with Eowald and resides now in Annwn as protector of Wolf Water, dwelling with Lord Eowald, Queen Yvayne and Merlin.

Nimue of Ynys Wydryn
A slave from Ireland, tutored by Merlin, she learned to plot and scheme in order to survive, but soon came to almost rule the whole of Britain. She was Merlin's lover, but also was loyal to Mordred, nurturing him, tutoring him, and bringing him to the Old Gods when he was surrounded by Christians. She ruled Ynys Wydryn in Merlin's absence and was instrumental in helping the Old Gods return to Britain. She defeated Merlin and so became the most powerful druid in the country - more powerful than even he, once his powers were broken by the Circle of Britain. She raised an army to challenge the Christians and even enslaved the Lady of the Lake, giving Excalibur back unto her care. She fell, finally, at Lugh's Gorge, plunging to her death with Eowald as the Army of Britain reclaimed the land from Shadow.

The Warbands of Britain salute these heroes and honour them in song and legend. Let the bards travel far and wide, from Kernow to Ceint; from Caledonia to Dumnonia, and praise them with great gladness.

Did anyone survive that Mythic Britain campaign?

Sounds like there's been some absolutely epic gaming going on in Mythic Britain! My appetite for that supplement is so whetted you could shave with it!

Yes, it was an incredibly epic finale to a truly epic campaign. It had everything, with play beginning almost as soon as the players had arrived in Pete's kitchen and we'd begun the libations. It had: betrayal, murder, self-loathing, mythical questing, shield wall clashes, one-on-one duels, scheming nobles, treacherous priests and druids, evil spirits, benevolent gods, self-sacrifice, animal sacrifice and a massive battle for the fate of Britain. It also had some moments of lecherous comedy, slapstick with a trussed lamb, cameo appearances by Fathers Ted and Dougal, and the mysterious case of Glastonbury Abbey's sinking foundations...

*!c13893.* (trans.: "*" = broadcast, "!" = warning, Galaxy sector number; whole comprises standard-format High-Compression Factor Emergency Warning Signal)
Tight beam M16 (Special Circumstances Section High Level Code Sequence) relay, received @n4.69.371.0666

o Grey Area (GCU, Eccentric) @c*; and appropriate ITG members

Dispatched flotilla arrived, galactic core world Uoyk Cuf. GOUs I Still See Yoouuu (Abominator Class) and The Carrot or the Stick? (Abominator Class) destroyed by apparent Dra'Azon manifestation. Subsequent contact lost.

Remaining vessels now considered persona non-grata by Optimae Grand Council due to improprieties incurred during mission. The Culture should now consider itself at war with the Chelgrians, Affronters and Morthanveld; only limited hostilities expected until surviving vessels are brought to heel for overtly enthusiastic acts.

Interestingly no current sign of the Chelgrian-Puen. Mission therefore is tentatively considered successful...

oo

Transmission Ends.

Were Fathers Ted and Dougal far away, or just very small?

*!c12819.* (trans.: "*" = broadcast, "!" = warning, Galaxy sector number; whole comprises standard-format High-Compression Factor Emergency Warning Signal)
Tight beam M16 (Special Circumstances Section High Level Code Sequence) relay, received @a2.34.1170.4

*Execution event. Affront territories.
*Fuck. Serious?
*Um. Yah...
*Bollocks.
*As in, hairy pair of.
*Details? As in, don't want, don't need, but let's get it over with.

*Okay. 'Acutely Lacking in the Sympathy Department' (Abominator Class) released a knife missile (GG##413762) into upper atmos of Affront controlled world. On instruction some 24 hours later it went on a Peaceful Recon Mission (SC=Psycho) into Affront installation. Numerous casualties including several hundred Affront Marines, three Affront Class A automated annihilation systems and a Gzaran Class military cargo hanger.

*Fuck.
*Quite.
*Did the little bastard escape?
*No. Affront automated weapons drones eventually cornered it once it had expended its entire arsenal of Anti-Matter mines.
*All 1500?
*Yes
*Oh, for fuck's...
*It was, apparently, having 'Too Much Fun'.
*Does this explain the war with the Affront?
*I'd say so, yes.
*A single knife missile?
*Yes.
*Shit.
