    Ignore kaboom

    sorry about the Sahuagin

    OOC:
    sorry, I didn't catch up on the war before posting.
    IC:
    Thayadon Fasfoni looks annoyed and speaks to the god-emperor "sorry about that, but my alleys in the sea want to destroy their enemies. Luckily, I have restrained them for now."

    Whatever forces I can send go to defend the attacked territory.

    A message is sent to the leaders of the Sky-Sea league and the Oerth Alliance:

    Oerth is dying. It's rotting away from the inside out. Millions of people are starving and homeless, order and civilization is breaking down troughout the world. We are fighting a pointless war on the edge of oblivion.
    We need to work together to save this world. We have to put that above all other priorities. This is not about territory but survival. In the name of Oerth I urge you to consider the consequences of what you are doing. It's surely the height of foolishness. I'm going to forgive this affront, this treasonous attack on your brother in arms, for the sake of Oerth. Whatever grievances you have with us can certainly be dealt with in negotiation instead of suicidal warfare.

    The God-Emperor of the Dark Union of Oerth
    ---
    Edit: Kaboom, it was an easy mistake to make. I'm glad our little misunderstanding has been settled. At least I know now how much you hate the Sahuagin. I bet it was you who demanded that I relinquish my claim to them in the negotiations about me joining the Oerth alliance.

    All our forces are recalled to defensive positions and resume rebuilding the DU.

    A formal note of thanks is sent to the IBKSC in gratitude of their swift aid. Though it proved to be unneccessary it was still welcome.

    If Forrester pulls out of Oerth (and especially if Alzem also leaves), the Oerthians will attack Toril.
    Whether they will win, the Seers do not know.
    They only know the Oerthians will attack Toril.

    The Seers state the Oerthians may attack Toril even if Forrester and Alzem stay on Oerth.
    I'm trying to leave gracefully, Edena. Don't try to story-blackmail me.

    And besides, the Seers also said that Vecna was going to do a whole bunch of things that it turns out it was impossible for him to do.

    But frankly, I don't care at this point. If you want to engineer something such that the 20,000PL super-advanced civilization of Toril can be seriously attacked and brought down by a group of scattered Oerthians, fine. Knock yourself out. That can be IR#4.

    IR#3, I leave to the Oerthians. And I encourage Alzem to do the same. (Or, at least, not have a 500PL force there.)

    For once, I think that I - and we in the Lortmils - agree with Serpenteye.

    We must stop our petty fighting. Our first priority is to stop this nasty Oerth-killing disease, and to neutralize it, if at all possible.

    While I still do not trust you fully, Serpenteye, I think that at this point in time it is necessary for our two respective powers to work together. While I do not approve of your world view, I think that we can get along at least long enough to end this threat. After that, then we can go our seperate ways. Hopefully there will be no more bloodshed.

    And I will ensure that, as well. Now that Forrester is gone, I'm the big kid on the block. Next turn, I will have nuclear weaponry. I am not going to use them frivolously, or just blow stuff up for the fun of it. I will, however, use them to destroy any and all who decide that attacking anyone at this point would be fun. That goes for my allies, as well (Kessel glances at kaboom, before continuing).

    Therefore, I urge all of you - send in your best and brightest to the Lortmils. Help us figure out a way to stop this Oerth-killing disease. Let us find a way to stop it. Let it be a victory, not for a people or nation - but for a planet, for all those who hold life dear.

    Let us put the evils of our enemies behind us. Let us put the animosities that have grown between us below us, and ignore them. Let us work together now, and find a cure.

    Now. Before it's too late.

    Ha! That gets stale once you've trodden on it a few times, Bubba

    Indeed, you're quite intimidating, for a gnome.

    I agree, if a grand conference can be assembled you could certainly play an important part. You and Kalanyr hold the most potential solutions to the disease but all of us should contribute to the best of our ability.
    The Dark Union will share everything we have learned about the problem with the rest of the world, excluding only the powers we are currently at war with. We also send a few of our most eminent experts to the lortmils for the conference.

    Ha! That gets stale once you've trodden on it a few times, Bubba
    Hehe. Well, there was nothing suicidal about our attack on you, was there? Thanks for making it so easy.

    I have learned my lesson.

    Now, please stop bugging me!

    kaboom - that is good. I just wanted to ensure that my point got across, is all. I believe that the point is across, now, so I think that we will stop "bugging you".

    Serpenteye - Yes, a conference is more than likely in order.

    The Lortmils is now arranging a conference. Each nation is invited and encouraged to send their best and brightest, as well as diplomats and politicians. Kalanyr, your presence is requested.

    Again, I say - we must and shall work together to find a cure for this planet-killing disease. Put away our differences for now, and focus upon the task at hand.

    Edena - the Lortmils will drop every project, everything that we are doing, to study this disease and such. I understand that our scientific branches are more than likely incredibly chaotic at the moment, with me starting and closing projects left and right, but with the current state of the world, I think that the scientific branch will just have to deal with it. Only the most important projects will remain open (primarily the Manhatten Project, and the Nanotechnomancy Project). Every other scientific mind will be focused on finding a way to beat this Oerth-killing disease.

    "My forests were burned down, my children were destroyed with a snap of a finger...what is to be blamed, technology? Or simply the emotions of my children which have gone unguided throughout these years, my children who have not heard my voice for ages, for centuries...seemingly forever. But now it dawns to me, I have awakened from my slumber, I have moved form the forest-into Phibrizzo's care it seems. A child of mine he is not, yet he proves to have some insight into this land they call Oerth." Mistress Tao calmly lounges in a private chamber provided to her from Hellmaster. "And although he is not good, he has provided myself a faithful servant...although outof nature's order, what does he intend? However he has promised to help me rebuild this world as it once was, and..."

    The door to her room abruptly opens.

    A messenger comes in, his eyes closed, "Phibrizzo has sent you a message, he wants you to go to a conferance in Loritmils to negotiate with other nations for us, it might help your cause."

    "Very well then, i'll be on my way, you may look at me now."

    The messanger opens his eyes, and although he is not blinded, he is almost stunned by the mistress' beauty. He finds himself blushing, and delivers a document gracefully, before being escorted out by Mistress Tao's skeletal guard, the High Guardian Taerix, much to the youthful messengers discomfort.

    "We shall be going then I presume." says Mistress Tao to her assigned guardian, who gives only a slight nod.

    (Don't worry, you have my assurance, IC and OOC, that Mistress Tao will not use any of her beauty abilities or spells as long as no one attacks or offends her, and that her guardian will be retained by her.)
