Thane's Ring (10)
Oh mighty Fates, listen to the voices of the winds! Oh Fortuna, we implore you to place your finger upon the almighty Random Number Generator, and work your magic! Atropos, as you select those threads to cut, may you be guided to sacrifice those magi performing the blaspehmous ritual whose masters have spent millions on training! Skuld, guide them to disastrous ends, and look favourably upon small factions who joined the race late.

We seal this prayer with our blood.

As the Black Towers rise, guarded by all manner of magic and admantium, we happily sift through our many junkyards. Crossbows? Hundreds of them. Chainmail? Dito. If you look hard enough, you'll even find Admantium, and the occasional artifact, dusty and trod upon to be sure, but these are the times we live in.

The Grand Priest Hawaz addressed the congregation, "As the great prophet René Lacoste said, 'Sans style, jouer et gagner n'est pas suffisant'" before he was interrupted by Major Asshole.

"Screw this. We'll kill all the filthy infidels and throw down their Dark Keeps" he swore, threw down his flaming sword and stormed out.

The brave soldiers of Nergal followed him.

The orc sargeant took the cadence as the company marched up the gangway.
"I knew an engineer before he died -"
And the infantry in their browned-iron plate-and-chain returned it,
"YO-LEHHHHHHFT! YO-LEHHHHHHFT!"
"Oh I knew an engineer ..."

Ellor turned to the dwarven smiths, his drinking partner of late.  
"Do you think we can stop it?"

Morag took a sip of her whisky, the peaty smokiness burning a smooth line to her belly.
"Us?  No."  

She made a face, stroking her beard pensively.  
"They say there are at least four towers going up now - one, perhaps two we might be able to get troops to, but there's no guarantee that we would be able to put a stop to the foul ritual.  But even four mages could study to journeyman level and then complete the casting for the Ring Alliance in the north before we could get there, even if we ignored all the thers.  Same for the Children of the Four Winds.  One of them will succeed, and the world will end."

They took another drink in silence.
