SLAINTE (slainte)

Game: guild



The cloud of destruction that spread its way across the land like pestilence was not a random act of nature cleansing herself from mankind. In fact, it once had a human name. Called “The Prophet of Despair” by most, he was a kind and gentle man who spoke out about the complacency of peoples lives and how they wasted the precious time they had with the mundane. Upon dying, the god Darden saw him brought back to life as a Poltergeist, gave him the name Matrim, and charged him to continue. For many years, nothing mattered to him but the bloodlust that is the core of his continued existence. Drawn to feelings of despair and dying he often took refuge in dungeons and similar prisons.

It was one night there that the dark spirit witnessed a young priestess gather friends and other prisoners to organize an escape. A new feeling of hope and sense of purpose of life entered into his existence. Fighting back the bloodlust madness with the help of his new friends, he managed to focus those feelings into a controlled force – they all shared this force called The Burning Fury.

But as with all things, the time they would spend together was not infinite and circumstances forced them to part. It was not long after he bid his friends farewell that the madness again burned past Matrim’s point of control; the world was again witness to horrible acts of chaos and destruction wherever his meanderings took him. At least until he came across a city called sLAinte.

The city was really a castle keep built into the side of a mountain. Only accessible from a narrow bridge on a small mountain pass, it was built as the ideal place to defend the few from the oppression of many. As if to exemplify this point Matrim observed a horde of goblins camped on the opposite of the pass and watched in curiosity as what looked to be a pitifully small band of humans solemnly decorated themselves for war and then donned bright red sashes with more of the same material that stretched down in a tail for several feet. At the end of each tail was a wooden stake. Taking up places at the end of the bridge, they each drove the stake into the ground and cheered the name of the first in line. It was not long before the first of the goblins could be seen at the other end of the bridge, and then the battle was engaged. The first of the defenders fought for hours as the press of invaders sought to advance, but he held his ground until a goblin spear finally drove too deep. Bloodied and dying he wrestled the murdering foe over the side of the bridge their screams mingling together as the fell.

Again and again the defenders held their ground against the foe.. some lasting minutes, other bulwarking the tide for hours. In the end it was not numbers that succeeded but courage and honor. Matrim felt the rage within him subside and allow room for the new emotions to co-exist with despair and fury. Becoming enthralled with the people of sLAinte, he listen to their tales of those who were honored to be chosen to be the defenders and the greater honor of being the first. Also stories existed of Samhain, the first ever to embrace death on the bridge and the holiday that honors his name his deed.

Searching to share this new place and new ideals with the old, messages were sent inviting old companions, old friends, and the new to the celebration of Samhain, where the lines between life and death blurred, and when it was time for new beginnings.
