plot is thickening.
I like interwoven plots, but If it get too thick to your taste, please inform me.

Falotar and Tale, I REALLY appricate some help.

last note: deeper the plot, better the work.

Muhahahah

A brief report of current situation:
And clarification on a few things

Dragons:
The gold and Black dragon are bind to the temple, similar way as a cow is bind to a farm. If the temple master said jump, the dragon says how high, the temple charge sovereign for use of their dragons, though gain a lot of power.
Ashenford:
Ashenford is a dead city, or rather, undead, city. Everyone in that town is a walking copse, except of course, our guest villain Yetiel the Dark Ember. Of course a dead town had a dead sovereign, the Lich queen of Ashenford is not the lich queen in majesty, she is just a random lich that happens to rule that town before she died (and of course, after she died).
Currently, the high priestess of Ashenford is RIP in very realistic sense. She is buried under the temple. But she still has the command over it.

The Rubies of Death
The Rubies of death are uncovered by The High king during his quest to defeat the spires of death. They were the very gem that powered the spires themselves, a vital component to create the phantom fortress.

After their recovery, the High king commanded to have the gems hidden in greatest temples to Argela in the land, and hope the power of the goddess would shield their evil. An authentic but powerless copy was made and is displayed in the museum in the capital.

The lich queen of Ashenford somehow learnt this and was able to divine one near slumbervill (of course it’s not there, we are talking about a very intelligent high king…)
To Appease Kypta, The Lich Queen sent gold to buy Service of Yetiel to raze the town so that her own minion could capture the gem during chaos that sure to ensure. However the gold was sufficient for resurrection of the high priestess, what the lich queen does not want. After Yetiel is out on his mission (so he could not be a thorn), The Lich queen’s legion of dead attempted to storm the temple with the excuse of escorting the gold into it.

What happens next is not very pretty.

The dragon lich had another plan to appease Kypta; He did not know the story behind the Gems, But he was able to sneak into the museum and replaced frauds with frauds. Well, he won’t be happy for a while.

I wish these clean a few things up.

These story is not light hearted or shallow as many of this board, be warned, you may be confused.

I trust you do not refer to my stories. They are rarely light-hearted, and still rarer shallow. Of course, I do like a nice bit of comic relief, but all-in-all I believe my stories to have a great deal of depth (ToF excluded, of course ). So . . .

Your story has the depths, yes.

But few of them have the darkness.
Adjust the gamma level, quick !

I really would like to add an epic to the large number of lighthearted story on this board. I actually wish to have a sense of realism in this story.

a little modification

Auricem is now the temple dragon of the capital, he is after all, one of the more important characters around.

You think I haven't tried? No-one seems to be interested, though.
Perhaps, Cooker, we are more similar than we realize. Once more, I invite you to join the Tale of the Apocalypse. Your contributions might be interesting - and if the end of the world isn't dark enough, I can't say what is.
As for realism - how realistic can fanfiction stories based on an E-rated fantasy computer game get? But I sympathize. I try to render my stories as realistically as my lack of experience (and morbid scruples) permit.

Falotar, I will join your story once I acquire additional inspirations. I promise at least two inputs by the end of next week.

I thrive to achieve as much realism as possible in the dragon wars. That means a thing happens for practical reasons rather just there to drive the plot. Struggles took place for interest, rather then ideology. Multiple fraction plots for dominance, rather then the standard backdrop of good versus evil.

On a side note, tale is not optimistic about being able to help. So we might have to write close to 60 posts each to complete it. No small feat but I think we well be able to do so.

Your work with the firedrake and frost dragons is impressive; I really have difficulty writing the kind of arrogance and sneakiness. Great work.

another minor correction.
