Greetings Mizaharians!

It has come to our attention that the Goddess Morwen has refused to do her duty this Season and walk forth from Avanthal where she resides to spread winter across the land. This is an insult to us, the rest of the Seasons, and irresponsible to the core. There is no reason, great or small, for a Season to shirk their duty. And this is definitely what has happened.

There will be repercussions.

We have hired an elite group of people to make sure these repercussions happen. We have the support of the other Gods in this endeavor. We will hunt down every follower of Morwen - every single marked member of her 'family' - and call for their death. Yes. We are calling for the outright slaughter of Morwen's children until such a time as Morwen resumes her duty or steps aside.

We prefer that She steps aside and gives her powers over to another.

To this end will will send PRIESTS and PRIESTESSES of our faith to every city in the land. To assure the success of this venture, these followers will be paying a bounty on the bodies of any follower turned into them. A coin payoff of 1,000 Mizas will be the reward.

Without Winter happening, the land becomes seriously damaged. Snow packs don't accumulate so drought is guaranteed in the Spring and Summer of the land. Wildfires will abound. Insects will flood the land unchecked. They will damage crops and forests without mercy. Spring plants will bloom early and often miss the windows of their pollinators. Seeds that depend on winter freeze will not germinate. Animal migrations will be off schedule and some will starve and die. The predator season of plenty will not occur so that predators will be forced to move into population centers to find easier foodstuff and raze these areas.

We will show no Mercy to Morwen or Her followers for this gross derelict of duty. If She refuses to step down, we will be forced to replace her anyhow and we will do it with the strongest display of power we see during this manhunt. No one will be safe. And if someone is caught offering shelter to the Vantha marked by Morwen, such as a city or group, we will turn our wrath on them as well and include them in the bounty. Look for our Priests and Priestesses. Show them respect. Enjoy collecting the bounties they offer.

Lessons must be learned.

OOC Storyteller and Player Notes :
A few things to note:

  • These notices have been posted in every city and crossroads in Mizahar. They included a detailed explanation of what a Vantha looks like (Vantha traits etc) along with a sketch of what a Morwen Gnosis Mark looks like. Any PC reading the notice IC will be awarded lore of Vantha: Physical Traits, Vantha: Follows Morwen, and Morwen: What a Morwen Mark Looks Like (Graders take note).
  • Storytellers... please create Priests and Priestess NPCs (3 Marks) of each Season in your city and feel free to pay players who bring Vantha bodies to them. Kills must be well rp'd out. NPC kills count, but make sure the threads aren't bogus. Also note that PCs or Cities sheltering Vantha will be treated no different than Morwen Followers themselves and paid a bounty for. If an entire city gets involved (say Lhavit decides to shelter Vantha) then the Seasons will raise hell in that city and do their damnedest to wipe it off the face of the world.
  • Please include the arrival of these priests and priestesses in your calendar and the appearance of the notice on the 2nd day of Winter.
  • The Seasons have contracted the Mortanis (much to Kyrsus' delight) to hunt Vantha PCs and NPCs. They are deadly, highly trained, and it will be very hard for a PC to escape. Please don't hesitate rping hits on these players and deaths among NPCs.
  • Avanthal itself will experience a huge increase in murders. No Priests or Priestesses of the Seasons will be there to pay bounties (Since the city is closed) but needless to say the city will experience a bloodbath.
  • Players who stand out during this global RP in vindicating the other Seasons may just be considered for ascension to Morwen's Goddess of Winter status. The other Seasons do have the ability to strip Morwen of her powers and replace her. They will do it in a heartbeat.
  • Any questions or comments, feel free to post in this thread.
