The time is Now.
The division between the gods happened so long ago that most don't even remember how it all happened. All that matters now is that the followers of the three gods are at a constant state of war. The followers of Barnabas will kill the followers of Angelique and Leto whenever they get a chance, and visa versa. The followers of Barnabas are great warriors, arrogant but true to their word. On the battlefield the followers of Barnabas fight with grace and steady deliberation that is revered, by enemies and allies alike.

War raged in every kingdom. No one was afforded peace. Some kingdoms grew large and strong from these wars other shrank and became weak. In the past there was always a balance between the three faiths. There was always a strength to be found within each of the faiths. But that was not true any longer. The years of a balanced war were long gone. Now year in and year out the balance has been broken. It seems as though now only one faith becomes strong while the other two are left to fight over scraps. This is the type of year we have been having. Within each faith the followers divide themselves into different clans or guilds. They build their kingdoms close to one another and fight as one. Normally each faith has at least one guild amoungst them that is comprised of large strong kingdoms. But now in these dark times only guilds of one faith have any strength, and that is the faith of Angelique this year. Before that it was Leto who ruled over the lands. For the followers of Barnabas it has been a tough and tring couple of years...but this year is not over yet. The winds of change are upon us and a new day is about to begin in which there is a new guild that will fight under the banner of Barnabas.

This is the dark times in which a new leader will step forward. This is the setting for when a new guild is born. It was time for the followers of Barnabas to have a new guild, a safe haven in which they could build and then strike out against the other stronger faiths. It is fitting that a new strength shall come to Barnabas in these most trying times when everyone talks about honor but no one has any. The Legion will rise out of these lands and bring honor back to war.

In these new lands Donut arrives along with many others. These lands are strange and unknown. The followers of Barnabas needed a home a guild to join and call home. These new lands held many dangers and the followers of Barnabas needed the protection that only being a member of a guild allowed.

In a large courtyard the armies of Barnabas has assembled themselves. They are ready to fight ready to die they just need a leader. In front of the assembly is a podium. Donut appears behind the podium and everyone quickly silences. All eyes are on him.

These are new and dangerous lands. I do not know what lies ahead of us. I can not promise you total victory, I can promise you if you choose to fight under my banner the banner of The Forty-Second Legion you will fight along some of the best warriors ever to worship Barnabas.

Silence

Are you worthy to fight in the 42nd? Can you fight with honor and pride? Are you the best warriors amoung the followers of Barnabas?

The assembly of men all break out into cheer with scattered yells

Yes

I will take men under my flag, the flag of The Legion. Tonight my army and I march away from these lands for the first time as members of The Forty-Second Legion, and we march towards a new future. A future in The Legion. We will from this night on be known as The Forty-Second Legion. And all those that come to my banner will be my Legionnaires.

Outside of the courtyard Donut rides out followed closely by his Army, his own private Legion to all the lands in which the good people pray to the god Barnabas. We will spread the word. The word is that there is a new guild for the followers of Barnabas to join. A new legion set to march out and fight the heathens. The legion will be made up of only the most devoted followers of Barnabas. Donut will lead this legion and be it's General d'Armee. But he can not do it alone. If Barnabas is to rise to power once again he will need help. So Donut rides on putting up notices in every Barnabas town, near every back alleyway and temple. The notices read:

To all who follow the great god Barnabas

Now is the time to rise up out of the chaos and fight as one. A new legion is forming. You can be part of that legion and do your part for bringing Barnabas back to power. This legion will be lead by Donut. Anyone can join, everyone will be accepted, but if you prove yourself to be unworthy during battle you will be left behind in the chaos that we create. Come now true followers of Barnabas, come now and JOIN
