A guild tournament was held to determine the rightful Champion of Gorchak. To nobody's great surprise, Erzbeth emerged as the winner of the battles, with Villa and Kharn close behind. The picture shows her just before wiping the floor with Reggie. Erzbeth shall be proudly wearing the title of Champion of Gorchak - until the next guild tournament that is.

DeadCal amused us all with this tale of irreverence:

Well while I was in Trammel, reeling from the injuries inflicted on me in a Felucca dungeon, I bumped into my old friend Kas Valentine. After a chat he mentioned he was going to see the Yew liches. "Aha!" I thought, "that's near the home of the Fellowship for Light!" "If you're going there, do me a favour and pee on their doorstep, would you?"


Kas, being the cheeky chappy that he is, agreed, and even supplied photographic evidence....
Shortly after, the Fellowship made their own feeble attempt at responding to our insult. I guess this is what you call "Moonshine over Hawk's Hollow".

Tis WAR!

Minions prepare thy selves, at 21:30 local time today a declaration of war was received from the so called Fellowship of Light. Apparently the seem to taken issue at the redecorating of their guild house in a lovely shade of Crispy Brown.

As from this time on a state of war exists between our two guilds.

May their deaths be slow and very very painful.

As word of the Darkcloaks spreads across the land, many have come seeking salvation. Only the darkest of souls will be considered worthy of receiving the blessings of Gorchak.

Two such individuals have recently come to my attention, and I have taken it upon myself to teach them the way of the Darkcloaks. From this time onwards, consider Morang and Reggie your brothers in Darkness.

The ranks of the Dark Cloaks were swelled by the addition of two new minions. Firstly, a rather strange mage came and insulted some of the minions. He even had the audacity to say a few choice words to Barathorn ! It was clear this mage had intelligence, but it appeared he had a darker side to him too. He introduced himself as Morang, and confirmed he had had involvement with Spiritwood University. Upon being given the choice of a slow protracted death, or serving the dark side - it was no surprise which way Morang swung. Later that evening, after most of the minions had departed, to cause mayhem elsewhere; Gorbash and Skowroneck did spot another stranger standing at the perimeter of the HQ. It turned out that this was a rather well known Fencer, who went by the name of Reggie. Once he declared his loathing for Sosarian society, it was merely a formality for the Master to agree to Reggie's enrollment into our dark ranks.

Minions, a couple of days ago, our headquarters was burnt down by two so called 'followers of the light'.

These goody two shoes seem to think there is no place for darkness and evil in Sosaria. Two of their members did approach our HQ, and when I intercepted them to bring them tidings of joy that our master will soon be laying waste to all of Sosaria - they did insult me and the almighty master - Gorchak. Furthermore, they forced me to retreat inside the HQ and then laid siege to it.

Furthermore, they forced me to retreat inside the HQ and then laid siege to it.

It seems the power of Gorchak was too strong for them, and they were unable to enter inside. Instead, these cowardly worms did set fire to the place. A great act of sacrilege was performed upon Gorchaks temple. Flames erupted everywhere, and the temple did burn to a cinder.

Luckily, the master's power was strong. The dragon inside me spurred me into quickly recalling out, hence I lived to bring you this news.

We shall have our revenge!

We shall show these 'lawful' ingrates that the darkness is supreme by extinguishing their 'light'

The master has already dispatched Skowroneck to locate the base of these do-gooders. Soon minions, we shall march and lay waste to all that they hold dear.

Prepare yourselves for war By Gorchak, the arson and sacrilege on the temple will be avenged.

Much amusement was to be had this evening when Skowroneck detected a hidden presence lurking outside the HQ. Within moments, members of the guild revealed a strange creature that was neither fully human, nor fully Orc. Barathorn did restrain the minions who wished to assault the creature, telling them that the creature was known to him, and had come here upon his request. Barathorn introduced the half-orc known as Gorbash to the Master, much to the amusement of the minions. The Master was somewhat puzzled by the oddities and strangeness of Gorbash, but was aware of the possibilities and advantages that this creature could bring to the Dark Cloaks. Hence the Master declared that Gorbash would be enrolled as a minion.
