Went well, and we won, to an extent.

Nellens Alicia, may her soul someday find release.

You stand in front of a statue. A woman, of the Dragon Blood, garbed in a suit of articulated armour and bearing a sword of size suggesting that it might be a Grand Diklave straight out of the stories. On her right shoulder a raven is perched, and at the base of the statue lies an inscription:

Nellens Alicia
The Battle for Lookshy

You wonder who this woman was, and how she had distinguished herself.



Behind a desk, in a small office, in the Imperial City, on the Emerald Isle, at the centre of the world, sits an aged woman; Nellens Omari, the only remaining ancestor of Nellens Alicia. She had not seen Alicia's assignment to the Ninth as exile, as many others had, but instead as a second chance for her to distinguish herself in the Realm and in the House. "Well," she thought "she certainly did that. I can only wish that she had learned to restrain her impetuousness in the process. May her soul come eventually to rest." The Armour, and the Oathbreaker's Sword would have to be repaired, and would have to wait. Alicia had had no remaining close relatives, but one of her cousins is currently expecting. Nellens Omari sets pen to paper; if the child be female, then by family tradition it should be named in honour of Nellens Alicia, and be trained for a military career.

Meanwhile, a legion is marching North from Lookshy. V'neef Bunto accompanies it, bearing a Soulsteel sword in a warded chest. He seeks a way to destroy the sword, and release the soul trapped within.



I turn the corner, past the place where we had first entered the complex, and race down the final corridor. In front of me I see a form, which appears to be trying to hide, but with little success. I draw near and see that it is the Agent of the All Seeing Eye that I had promised myself revenge upon all those months before, and whom had been winding me up ever since. I cannot restrain myself, so I swing at him and my sword digs deep into his side. He rolls away, and vanishes; and I stand ready, expecting a counter-attack. None comes, so after a short wait I continue on my route.

As I arrive at the junction outside the power-room a tall dark shape steps out -- it is Him, our adversary. I do not even stop to consider; honour and anger can only allow one option. I raise my sword in salute, then channelling my flow of Essence change my stroke into a parry as he attacks. I know immediately that my parry was insufficient, and I wish my comrades better luck against this Foe than I have had. Then comes the impact, and my mouth opens in a scream of exquisite pain as His sword wrenches my soul from my body, and from the Cycle of Reincarnation. I die, to an extent, but my soul remains in torment; imprisoned in the blade, Soulmirror.


Tom: the only regret I have for what happened is that she didn't get a blow in on him first. Otherwise I think it was fitting.

Sorry to post something sort-of unrelated but... Does the CU roleplaying society have many older ex-student hangers on? Their site hasn't been updated in a while. More importantly do they frequent any pubs or similar? It'd be nice to find some folks who roleplay (and aren't desperately revising) and get to know them a bit.

The website is in state of perpetual 'this needs to be rebuilt from the ground up' - but yes, there are a fair few ex-students, who are still involved.

Alas, events are still organised around such things as terms, and exams.

They don't presently frequent pubs as a society.

Try asking at Games and Puzzles or on uk.games.roleplay? there are a fair few ex-student role-players, but they tend not to have much to do with CURS

No problem :).

Not really, no. There are lots of ex-student roleplayers in Cambridge, but they tend to have only tenuous links to CURS. I seem to have stayed somewhat in the student rp scene however.

Their site hasn't been updated in a while. More importantly do they frequent any pubs or similar? It'd be nice to find some folks who roleplay (and aren't desperately revising) and get to know them a bit.

There'll probably be a lot of roleplayers at the Beer Festival, but there's an obvious identification problem :-).

Your best bet might be to talk to Alex or Graham in Games and Puzzles (on Green Street), or email a CURS committee member anyway. emperor suggests that uk.games.roleplay might also be helpful here.

Sounds like talking to the herd in G+P is the way forward then. I'm not actually after student roleplayers in particular. I'm looking for roleplayers and there is that identification problem. I'd feel like a loon wandering up to folks asking 'scuse me, but do you roleplay?'

I might try and head over to G+P Tues lunchtime then.
