February 19th, 2008 – H.C OVERRIDE

AFS High Command is keeping Humans secluded underground on Foreas as specimens of “Logos Addiction.” Each specimen has shown adverse effects when in contact with Eloh Technology or Logos Elements. Many testify that they are in direct contact with a dark figure that talks to them and promises immortal life in exchange for worship and service.

The name of the entity, “Kerahl,” has been classified as Dark Secret and is stricken from any open records or communicaes. Penumbra is alerted.

January 7th, 2008 – The Prophet Awakened.

The Prophet of Kerahl, Lord Silas D’Vry has stirred from the Shroud, Kael E Belal. He has been given life on Foreas. Recovered at Pinhole Falls by a native, he makes his way back to a nearby AFS camp. His record of service to the AFS is impressive, and he has many documented scientific breakthroughs regarding the effects of Eloh Technology on Humans native from Earth.

Silas begins learning about himself, knowing that he has a greater purpose and must prepare for it.

Glory and Praise to the Dread Lord Kerahl.

December 21st, 2007 – Earth is Slain, Kerahl Rages.

Earth has been invaded by an alien race called the Bane. Using ancient Eloh technology, Earth’s governments create wormholes, transporting anyone who can fight or teach off-world. The Shadowlord declares the Bane unclean, as half organic, half mechanical monstrosities with an endless appetite for destruction. They must not be permitted to run unchecked.

Lord Kerahl begins to stir those resting in the Tomb, Kal E Belal.

October 9th, 2007 – The War is Over.

Corpses lay wasting throughout Telon.  Kerahlites have slain the wicked Outlander at every home, in every town, on every continent.  A foul illness breaks out about Qalia, as the corpses bake openly in the desert land.  The tasks of the Dark Ones is complete.

Of the 730 Kerahlite zealots who began God’s war, only 91 remain. All servants will rest in Kal E Belal.

Glory and Praise to the Dread Kerahl, Slayer of His Enemies.

June 3rd, 2007 – Qalia Invaded.

Lord Silas D’Vry, the Prophet of Kerahl leads an army of 75 Kerahlite warriors who land Wyverns North of Martok. The Holy war against the Outlander spreads, moving south.

June 1st, 2007 – The Killings Hasten.

The Elves and Humans have allied against the Church of Kerahl. The Jeahuum of Telon must be hastened. Mythos becomes home to over two hundred Wyverns. Church members fly out and prepare to raze the rest of Thestra, and begin in Qalia and Kojan. An army of flying beasts land at Frostshard Lake, lead by Ministers Valbrandr the Mad, and Sephis the Cold. The killings begin spreading from the East as well.

May 16th, 2007 – Corpses Ablaze

Every night at Midnight, the Witching Hour, the slaves of God ride out, scouring the land for more Outlander to kill. All enemies of God west of Leth Nurae have been done away with. The skies are filled with dark clouds of burning Outlander flesh as pyres burn all over the country. Rumors of a Cult of Nether worshipers abound through New Targonor. Emissaries from the Human kingdom are sent to Leth Nurae, to consult with the Elves over the mass murders.

March 31st, 2007 – “Adorned with Mine name…”

The rune has been recovered, wielded only by the original Kerahlite; the Prophet Silas Du’Vry.  Possessed and used as a vessel, the Prophet transported the artifact to Mythos Isle where it sits at the shrine of our Lord.

The shrine is set, the followers are gathering. The Church grows. There remain only a few who are yet to hear the call before the great War of God, the Jeahuum against the Outlander plague of Telon.

Woe to THOU who are the enemy of Kerahl. Woe to THOU who speak the forbidden tongues Lol and Newb. This world belongs to those who are of true spirit and play their role in it. Not to THEE, Outlander filth. May God’s will be carried out, and may your blood wash clean the land.

May Lord Kerahl protect the servants of True Evil, that they may serve Him eternally!

March 3rd, 2007 – The Church Erected.

Far south of the continent of Thestra the servants of Kerahl have secured a small valley on the island of Lost Shores. Twelve houses have been built, the Church stands tall in the center. The village will be called Mythos, after the wooded forest where the Church hid before claiming Marruin in Sosaria.

The land must be blessed. Silas, the Prophet of Kerahl has beheld a vision of an ancient tablet touched by the hand of Kerahl Himself. The ruins are far south, in a temple jutting from the Lost Ocean.

January 30th, 2007 – Awakening from the Veil…

Lord Silas D’Vry and the Ministry have been taken from Kal E Belal to be prepared for service in a new world. This time, Telon has been selected by the Dark Lord for cleansing. The world has born no fruit, and no mercy will be granted it.  Woe to those deserving.  A swift death comes for the masses.

These are the Kerahlite Zealots who were chosen to seed the new Church:

Lord Silas D’Vry, Prophet of Kerahl
Minister Beldynar
Minister Sephis
Minister Valbrandr
Minister Kael
Acolyte Fekule
Acolyte Horris
Acolyte Aganos

November 20th, 2006 – The Great Cleansing of Azeroth.

No signs of the followers of God are found in Deadwind Pass or anywhere else for a week.

The innocent all over Azeroth vanish. Only the Outlander, and the Undead Hordes remain alive as the sky darkens, the clouds part, and liquid fire pours down on the land. The lands split in giant cracks, the smell of sulfur and fiery rock fill the air. Mountains are leveled and oceans boil as the Truth the Church of Kerahl arrives. All those abandoned beings are scorched by holy flame from the Dark Lord’s hands. Screams of horror and agony from the mouths of God’s enemies spread across the land until only the silence of death and desolation take over.

Azeroth has been cleansed of the Outlander and the foul Undead plague now and forever.

November 15th, 2006 – Vanished.

Suddenly and abruptly, the followers of Kerahl have left the land. No trace of them can be found, and even their Church in Deadwind Pass is empty.

Doomsayers repeat the teachings they’ve heard in the villages, saying Kerahl is coming.

October 31st, 2006 – Spreading the Truth.

Church of Kerahl Ministers and Acolytes begin appearing in all of the small villages across Azeroth, proclaiming the end of times to come. They preach the Great Cleansing of Azeroth, where Lord Kerahl will rain fire and sulfur across the world, destroying the Outlander and the other enemies of God. The end is coming.

October 9th, 2006 – The Fire Extinguished…

Lord Silas D’Vry stood out on his balcony at the Church, overlooking Deadwind Pass. A naked, post coital Rashi slinks out of his bedchamber. The Prophet lit candles and a pipe smoking softly in the night, absolutely vulnerable. Just above Silas on the roof, a bedraggled Regant lay in wait, knife in hand, prepared to pounce. The assassin spoke his last words, “You cost me everything, even her. I’ll revel in this.” He didn’t see Rashi approach behind him. He didn’t even feel the blade as she slit his throat. He fell to his knees, knowing finally he had been betrayed for the last time. Regant’s blood pooled on the roof, then dripped down to the Prophet’s balcony, extinguishing one of the candles he had just lit.

August 29th, 2006 – The War Concludes.

Through subterfuge and cunning, the Church of Kerahl has avoided open conflicts with the Ironforge Regiment. They have laid waste to the Hidden Palm, but with substantial losses. Reiki and the leading body of the Hidden Palm are dead. Regant is still missing. A wounded Forgeheart signs a declaration of unconditional surrender for the Hidden Palm.

General Thurgo and several other Captains of the Regiment are dead. The army recedes into the sanctum of Ironforge to begin repairing the damage done to their ranks in this costly war.

The Church of Kerahl are suspiciously unharmed throughout the conflict.

June 7th, 2006 – Aimbooze Assassinated.

Acolyte Aimbooze has infiltrated the Ironforge Regiment, claiming to be a defector from the Church of Kerahl. He provides the location of their secret meeting places in Deadwind Pass, and an official document of alliance between the Church of Kerahl and the Hidden Palm.

The Hidden Palm is ostracized from Ironforge. Shortly after, Aimbooze is assassinated. The Ironforge Regiment declares war on the Hidden Palm. Regant is missing. Reiki assumes leadership of the Palm Assassins.

May Aimbooze be kept in the Veil, Kal E Belal for his service to God.

March 3rd, 2006 – The Trap is Set…

Assassin Rashi of the Hidden Palm, sneaks up to the Prophet’s back, knife in hand. As she raised the blade, the Prophet spun and grabbed her hand. Three other Acolytes pounced upon her, and the five vanished. Laughter filled the air as Minister Sephis called out:

“We have your woman now, Regant. See you soon!”

Their goals accomplished, the attackers retreat.

A Kerahlite spy intercepts a message destined for Lady Elsymir of the Crusade:

My Lady,May the Light find you well. The Church of the Light will support your war against the “Cult of Kerahl.” As we discussed, however, open aggression is not advisable at this time. I have sent word to Regant, the Hidden Palm’s Master of Assassins. If the Palm can execute the Cult leader, then this war may end with him.

May the Light bless you, and may the Light continue to bless our Church.

Patriarch Drustan
Church of the Light

February 13th, 2006 – Fear Reigns.

Rumors of the Church’s battle with Ex Infernum has given Crusade pause. Elsymir reconsiders her position on her guild’s war against the Church of Kerahl. She calls a meeting with Lord Drustan and Lady Saberly of the Church of the Light, and Lord Demolay of Knights Hospitaller.

Lady Elsymir,
I will not meet with you. I cannot risk further harm to my people at the hands of these vile Cultists. I wish words could express the regret I feel in losing my wife, my son, and my daughter. I bemoan the day I took the Cult harlot in amongst our people and defended her. I can only hope and pray that the Light guides you away from conflict with them. Religious fanatacism bears the fact that its servants will lay down their lives for anything their masters deem worthy. I cannot risk the lives of our Knights again.

Good fortunes and blessings to you.

Lord Demolay
Knights Hospitaller

Lord Kerahl afflicts these heretics with a black plague that consumes their bodies, and tarnishes their souls. All are sentenced to death, save for Adam, who is cursed with eternal life, then locked in a casket and buried far under the Church, beneath even the Upside-Down Sinners.

November 23rd, 2004 – “And His gaze turned to Azeroth…”

And in the darkness of space, myriads of worlds orbited myriads of stars composing infinite constallations across untold galaxies. Only a small fraction of them supported any life. Fewer of those worlds contained intelligent life; and in lesser still, life created life within. And finally, some had learned how to pervert life. These are the worlds Kerahl hated. The next world had been selected; and His gaze turned to Azeroth.

While Kerahsiivu was one of the primary Elbollah, he could not cleanse the fouled worlds without first allowing the purity of His righteousness to pass through them. It was not from lack of power, but from an overabundance of compassion; that all the inhabitants may know that there is one true God, and His name is Kerahl.

March 3rd, 2004 – The Great Cleansing of Sosaria.

No signs of the Church of Kerahl are found on their sacred peninsula, Marruin.

True Sosarians all over the world vanish. Only the Outlander remain alive as the sky darkens, and fire rains downs upon them. All living things are killed in agonizing holy flame from the Dark Lord’s hands. The ground cracks, the smell of sulfur and brimstone fill the air. The screams of the masses of unblessed people reign across the land until only the silence of death and desolation takes over.

Sosaria has been cleansed of the Outlander plague now and forever.

January 31st, 2004 – Where Have They Gone?

Whispers among the opposers of the Dark Lord’s people grow louder with each passing day. The wearers of the Mark of Kerahl have seemed to recede. Where the public bazaars and banks used to be their haunting grounds, they are no longer seen.

January 10th, 2004 – “Their Bones Will Rot…”

The coalition of guilds who have declared war on the Church of Kerahl have been stopped in their paths. Their Lords report visions of a weapon that will ensure their victory without bloodshed. Charged with this new quest, and denying the voice of their councils, the four Lords leading the war against Kerahl venture into Ilshenar.

These are the four that disappeared this day, and were never recovered from Ilshenar:

Lord Aedilwulf
Lord Aupinautu
Lord Menulaius
Lord Luthien Bedwyr

The now masterless guilds name new Lords, and recind their declarations of war against the Church.

January 3rd, 2004 – The Word of God.

Lord God spoke before His prophet. These are the words that were recorded:

“Sertes, I haft grown weary of the soldiers who gather against mine people. A sennight’s time wilt see their headmasters served unto a task with no end. Forsooth, their bones wilt rot in Ilshenar.”

January 2nd, 2004 – A Wise Choice.

Another message to Lord Menolaius of Banahar has been intercepted. This is what was written:

Lord Menolaius-
I regret to report that the Knights of Absolution have elected not to join Banahar in war against the Cultists. If it were up to me alone, I would pick up the sword and ride out immediately. I still believe those bastards are responsible for Lord Kalatar and Lady Jirel’s disappearances. However, this conflict threatens to tear a rift in our guild. I cannot allow such a seperation to happen to our people. A house divided soon collapses.

Lord Tu Ypse
Steward of the Knights of Absolution
May God return Lord Kalatar and Lady Jirel to us one day.

December 21st, 2003 – The Fear Spreads.

A Church spy has intercepted a message to Banahar from Avalon. It contains the following:

Lord Menolaius,
The Scions have decided not to back you in the war against the Cultists. So long as their filth do not molest Avalon, we are willing to let them be. I realize you believe they are a threat, but there is no real proof that they are the ones committing the mass murders. However, if you do decide to declare war on them, Avalon’s armories are open to Banahar and her allies.

Lord Tristam
Guildmaster of the Scions of Avalon

December 19th, 2003 – The Warning Heeded.

A Church spy has intercepted a letter sent from Lady Aniki Locarn to Lord Menolaius. It reads:

Lord Menolaius,
I regret to inform you that the Brotherhood of Steel will not participate in your war against the Church of Kerahl. We consider this matter to be outside of our interests and can only lead to the unnecessary bloodshed of our people for a cause we do not fully understand or agree with.

Lady Aniki Locarn
Mistress of the Brotherhood

I am sorry Meno.

December 8th, 2003 – The Call of Banahar.

The Lords of the land have gathered and the meeting has started. When Menolaius called the meeting to order, the doors slammed shut and locked. The candles blew out and the room was cast into the twilight of the rising moon.The Prophet of Kerahl appeared, flanked by the spirits of four servants of the Dark Lord. This was the warning delivered to those gathered:

I am the mouth of God in this land, and I have a warning for you all. Do not mettle in the affairs of the Dark Lord. The Jeahuum against the Outlander will continue. True Sosarians like you and me will no longer suffer the indignation of those who are not worthy of the land.Those who oppose God will suffer His wrath. Glory to the Dark Lord Kerahl! May His hand swiftly cleanse the world forever and ever, amen!

In five pillars of fire the spirits and the Prophet vanished. These are the Kerahlite wraiths who carried out God’s will this night:

Lord Silas Du’Vry, Prophet of Kerahl
Minister Beldynar
Minister Ender
Acolyte Fekule
Acolyte Zorax

Represented at the Banahar gathering are:

Lady Aniki Locarn of the Brotherhood of Steel
Lord Aedilwulf of Clann Marrach Faol
Lord Aupinautu of Veritas
Lord Luthien Bedwyr of the Protectors of the Eight Virtues
Lord Tristam of the Scions of Avalon
Lord Tu Pacal Ypse of the Knights of Absolution
Lord Menolaius of the Realm of Banahar

November 10th, 2003 – The Seeds of Dissent.

Inhabitants of Jhelom wake to find the floor of the dueling pit covered in Outlander corpses. A travelling noble, Lord Menolaius of the Realm of Banahar, is visiting and witnesses the results of the massacre. He immediately dispatches couriers to the heads of the largest guilds in the country. This is how one of the messages read:

Lord Aedilwulf,
It is my sincere hope that this word finds you and all of Clann Marrach Faol in good health and pleasant tidings. Unfortunately, Banahar cannot say that we are such. I have seen a gravely ill thing. On the morn a mass of bodies were found in the Jhelom pits. The word from the locals is that a Cult of religious fanatics is responsible, and that similar happenings took place in Vesper recently. I am calling on you and your entourage to attend a council meeting to discuss this threat to Britannia, and how to dispose of them. As the forms must be obeyed, I will send the date and meeting place after receiving affirmation of your pending reception.

May the Eight Virtues of Lord British guide us in these heavy times, and in the absence of our King.

Lord Menolaius IX of the Realm of Banahar
