“I have learned that if you must leave a place that you have lived in and loved and where all your yesteryears are buried deep, leave it any way except a slow way, leave it the fastest way you can. Never turn back and never believe that an hour you remember is a better hour because it is dead. Passed years seem safe ones, vanquished ones, while the future lives in a cloud, formidable from a distance.”
― Beryl Markham, West with the Night
Are prophesies of end times cliché when those times are your own? Here’s yours:
“For too long the seeds of darkness have been permitted to grow and flourish.
A light sparks and flares to life northeast of Jericho. A conflagration which burns clean with righteous flame all that it touches. It purges Crucible in white-hot light, causing the darkness that dwells there to flee to underground shelter. Soon it will pass over Jericho too, and there will be no more. Time is borrowed now, not just for Jericho but also for the grey who gave up her immortality to walk in the sun.
Still, there are those who see opportunity when others see only despair. Ambitious minds and sharp steel make their final preparations, for the chaos of these hard times provides the perfect backdrop for sleight of hand and twist of blade into a back.
Powers converge as the situation quickly escalates. The dark elven Kingdom of Antioch throws all its weight against the coming storm. The Blood Red Rose gains unexpected help to evacuate the peasantry. The crisis catches the attention of both the Grey Elves and the Army of the Black Wyrm. And perhaps most telling of the desperation at hand, the Conclave table a proposal for a final line in the sand that involves reactivating the Curtain… assuming the newly repaired leyline will hold.”
All of this and more will come to pass. Witness the undoing of Jericho. Everything is about to change.
Alea iacta est
It is with bittersweet feelings that we announce this will be final Underworld Jericho event on the Majik Morn site. It has been our home for many years and we owe so much to it. For both staff and players, virtually every path, camp and landmark holds memories of our little fantasy world. As happy as we are that our dream of owning a site has come true, we have nothing but love and respect for the land we’ve played on for all these years. We’ll miss it terribly.
Welcome to our 7th weekend event of the 2015 season at Underworld Jericho. This event on the schedule is commonly referred to as the “Wrap Up” event because it’s at this event that we allow the shapers to conclude or pause their storylines so that they are all free to help with the All Hallows event that comes after. Our second major plot theme, which is also the main overarching storyline, will involve the in-game explanation for moving sites from Majik Morn to our new site 30 minutes away. Despite the dramatic theme, there will be lots for new players to do.
Since we’re now in October expect chilly nights. Bring warmer clothing and bedding just in case the temperature dips and as always, lots of extra socks. If you need to sacrifice some costume in exchange for warmer clothing such as hats and gloves, that’s okay.
Come join us in Jericho for what will be in many ways, the final time. History will be made.
