The Twelve Pillars of Wisdom
Orcish philosophy is a much-maligned academic specialty. The previous occupant of the “Tulmagg Stool of Comparative Philosophy*”, the sage Moroun-Oxy had theorised that the universe was governed by great forces which he called the “twelve pillars of wisdom”. These twelve pillars set all the basic “constants’ of the universe. Sadly for the field of Orcish philosophy, further speculation was interrupted, when during a vigorous doctoral dissertation presentation on “Survival of the Fittest”, Moroun lost the debate.
It was a great setback for Orcish philosophy and perhaps for the world, in that Moroun-Oxy was suprisingly correct.
Lord Ao could not help but notice when the Great Machine wobbled, tottered and for a second stayed stationary. With the gimbals thus disengaged, he heard the chocks released and then a governor engaged. Four times before the Great Machine had precessed through all the permutations and then locked in the new constant.
Casting his perception out into the Multiverse Lord Ao sought to see what had changed.…
Deep in the swamp the frogs sensed it first. Something was changing in the nature of “swamp”. Tremors ripped through the land, great cracks opened and where there had been water, the land became as dust. As a species, frogs are quite capable of surviving extended periods of drought. Their eggs possess the ability to generate a hard leathery outer covering, that preserves the internal moisture and protects the precious contents during times of adversity. More advanced amphibian species tend to have evolved away from this safety net. Which, had he still been alive, Moroun Oxy would have said was a very short sighted decision by the Lizard Man race.
In the mountains of Emrys, the potassium atoms of the local anorthosite were replaced with sodium atoms. The change in valence generated a rhombic cleavage fault and the great rock shelf shifted and crashed to the plains below. If the Azile golem noticed, it did not show any sign of doing so.
In the outer plane called Thanatos, the planar boundaries buckled and warped. Deep within his cavern, the ruler of the dimensional pocket felt his planar control stripped from him. Gone in an instant were the protections that stopped others from magically entering his realm. Grabbing his mighty pitchfork, Omadon summoned his servitors, company was coming and plenty of it.
They called themselves the “triad”. The number implied three, but perhaps it was just misdirection. The stakes they played for were very high and should Lord Ao find out, the costs of failure were divine. They too had sensed the great machine slow and the imminent change. In that moment, they had an opportunity to use their powers, in a way that should not be traceable back to them. Together they did, what any one of them could not do alone. Together they drew forth the great floating planar fortress called the Bastille and bound it to the world of Edon, leaving unmistakable traces in the weave. Lord Ao had forbidden any of them to use their powers to effect the multi-verse to come, but this was worth the risk. Besides, all the carefully prepared clues lead back to Mystra.
In Lord Ao’s throne room, the petitioner stood before the Overlord.
“So let me understand, you wish me to withdraw your divinity, temporarily?”
The robed figure nodded and then answered.
“As a god, I am forbidden to move against the other members of the pantheon, on pain of permanent loss of divinity. But your rules still hold…no two gods can share the same domain.”
“As you wish. Know this, should you survive until the Great Machine is finished its work, your divinity will be restored and with it any domains you have taken by force or subterfuge. Should you die, then it will be as if you never existed and you will be bound to the “Dreaming Gulfs” for eternity.”
Under the hood, the figure smiled. Faster than a pair of mortal eyes could see, a pair of silver blades flickered forth from the robes sleeves, traced an elegant pattern and returned to their hidden sheaths
“Godkiller, it has a nice ring to it, don’t you think.”
The word spread quickly through the Emrys Underground.. A bounty, like none had seen before. haste runes, dragons slippers, thief’s hoods. All this and more for the one who destroyed Artemis Kai.
They were coming closer together and faster now. The number of possible combinations had started off almost infinite, but as each axis was locked down, the number of possible remaining permutations decreased exponentially. Even so, it caught Lord Ao by surprise when the machine stopped and the sixth axis locked.
“Too few Drow surviving….who would have thought that would be a problem?” Lord Ao mused.
A single black stone lay in demonic hands. Warped and gnarled, shattered and twisted and yet the power within was evident for all to see.
“Find them….find them Rife Claw….you have failed to destroy their crafters, failed to destroy their crafting halls. Do not fail me in this. Krensibhon is the proverbial two edged sword. With these we will be unstoppable but if the Edonites find them…”
“Well I had been warned” the woman thought, “its not even as if I was totally innocent. ”
Lord Ao’s domain was not judgement, but his actions had been quick and severe. The once “Mistress of Magic” found herself wandering the streets of a mortal realm. Mortal perhaps but not powerless, Lord Ao may have removed her divinity, but he could not remove her link to the weave or her knowledge of the Mythic magics. Now all she needed was the spark of the divine to regain her full magics.
The former god knew of the planar fortress they called the Bastille and she knew she had been framed for its return. She had her suspicions (as she suspected Lord Ao did), but before she could react, she needed sanctuary and allies
Sighting the flag with the symbol of the 12 moons, Mystra set off across the square, “Tahlia will help”.…
Under the tree outside the Helios Cathedral, the usual suspects looked up as the woman passed. She was stunning but then, with the notable exception of Gulda Hensch , Helios was not short of attractive women.
One set of eyes followed her across the square to the Order of the Arcane.
“See something you like?” asked one of the stragglers
A pair of silver daggers flickered in the light and them vanished back into the sleeves.
“No harm in just looking”
