Necrovion Succession

Fyrd Argentus

Recommended Posts

Events in Necrovion have begun to sound like a Groucho Marx routine. Who's on first?

Queen Peace had passed the crown to Jester some time ago. This year saw a pass of the crown to Pamplemousse, then a pull-back to Jester followed by the institution of the first formal Rebellion in MagicDuel. Mur even created new rules to deal with this situation.

We also had a take-over of a Necrovion alliance by someone who booted all players including the former Queen herself.

Our readers want more. Can you write the story that puts all this in perspective?


This space is reserved for the first/best insightful story selected that addresses the above topic in an entertaining yet legally defensible way.

If your submission is selected, you will be rewarded with the honored byline and a pickle point (worth more than a silver coin).

My Mother told me the following when I was still small...

"I met the Rajj, your Father, during a time when he would spend day and night in front of the Howling Gates, either meditating, or telling stories to those who wished to learn. I was drawn to him by his stories, I would spend countless hours lingering near him, hoping to hear more of what he have to say. Then came the prophecy..."

My Mother had memorised the words of the prophecy, and repeated them to me, but I can no longer recall what they were. In anycase, it was how her life became bound to my Father's.

"One I will enslave, he had said... who else could he have meant, except me, who is already a slave? There were some drama before the Rajj chose his wives, but they seem insignificant now. I do not know exactly how long I served him, sitting by him day and night in front of the Howling Gates. I watched him tell stories, and I even repeated some of them myself. All seemed well, but I could tell he was becoming troubled. A burden was slowly being placed on him one which he did not comunicate to me. Then one day I followed and watched him as he went into Necrovion, claimed it all as his own, and crowning himself 'Rajj'. Thus came the Desert."

Now that I think about it, such a fantasy was so easily created, and passed on... Even to this day I could not forget the Desert. But, back to my Mother's story...

"The Desert flurished, the Rajj came to adopt the ritual of washing himself with sand. It was also a great pleasure when he would allow me to perform the ritual for him. It was also not long before he started talking of Heirs, and was also Crowned by the Shades as the First King. In fact, it was the first Crown in all of the lands. Three children he adopted... Marvolo, Peace, and Malichi."

I suppose at this point, my Dear Sister, Peace, and Brother Marvolo could each tell their stories... My Mother never told me what happened to Malichi. However, she did tell me how I came to be...

"I do not know why the Rajj desired further children, were the adopted ones not enought to fullfill the prophecy? Nonetheless, he wanted children from the womb of his wives, and so I obeyed. And in time, you came into the world, my Dear Rask, named after a famous man from my old world."

Unfortunately, I never knew my Father. It seemed that he had disappeared into his Desert before I was born. My Mother have always spoke fondly of the Desert, and my Father, but, she could not hide the sorrow in her voice...

"Life went on in front of the Howling Gates. I continue to sit at the Gate to the Desert, and it is now I who tells the Rajj's stories. As I watched my belly swell and felt your strength growing inside me, I wondered... He told me to live, and so I do... But what do I live for, when the man who owns me no longer calls my name? I think, he had wanted one of us to take his place, to bear the crown... His three wives, three adopted children, and two babes yet to be born... Yet, he left us too soon, I don't think any of us were ready..."

Often would my Mother talk of the hopes she had for me. She said that while she was a woman and a slave, born to serve and obey, I would be a man and raised to be a ruler. She told me that she wanted me to be as a wild beast, unrestrained, independant, and proud of my own strength... Sometimes I wonder if she regrets raising me the way she did... For I left her, when I saw the way she would stare at the sky, waiting to die, I left her, to find my Father's Desert.

I will not speak much of the time I spent in the Desert, challenging the merciless sands. It is enough that I survived, and stood again at the Howling Gates. It was to my dismay that I saw the land my Mother so loved fall into desolation, with a neglectful King holding the crown, and the people milling about as an abandoned herd. And so I declared my presence, and began my quest. I still labour toward the same goal now, as I sit in front of the Howling Gates, as my Father did, and as my Mother did.

Much have happened since my arrival, but I believe those are not my story to tell...

Thank you for that story, Rask. It deserves more than a pickle, but that is all I have to give. I will leave the slot at the top open for a story on current events.

Thank you. Your kind words is reward enough in this case. It was my pleasure to tell that story.

It should be best if someone FROM Necrovion speak of this. Currently we are in the state of chaos. I ask for patience and not questions. I am aware that people need answers but I and others must first answer to those of Necrovion. Then the rest of the world.

Be patient, embrace the change as it comes and do not oppose it. In the end, if you think about it, it is what it was needed.

Topic suspended until further notice.
