Chapter Five - The Fall of the House of Rufflewing

>Last time on EA2

>The party arrived in the Gryphon Kingdoms and discovered that the local gryphon inhabitants were engaging in a local tournament tradition to determine the fate of government in the region.

>The gryphons were unhappy at the Rufflewing's taxation and treatment of other houses and were looking to overthrow the ruling house.

>Thanks to Emery and Gavriel, the gryphons found their chance when the duo uncovered that the guards in service of the King were in fact undead. The missing link between the cultist attacks in Canterlot and the Gryphon Kingdoms.

>Under the cover of the insuing chaos of unrest and rebellion, the brave adventurers managed to make into the capitol city of the Rufflewings.

>Avia was dead and they had to save her from King Rufflewing.

>Little did they know that their nemesis was almost ready to reveal herself...

>There were some majestic terrace windows a few dozen feet up. The marble and stone Temple was very impressive to say the least.

>The front door was locked by a simple lock.

"I wish I had my raven... He'd be able to fly up there and see if there was something going on on the other side.

>She recalls that they have winged members in the party

"Why don't one of you fly up there and see if one of those windows can open?"

Emery 886747

"Not it"

"I don't have any wings... so I can't do it."

>Beyond the door was an eerie silence. The halls that were once filled with the song of praise and worship were dead as its inhabitants.

>The curse of the Temple could be felt by all.

>There were various statues and a large offering table in the center of the spacious marble room. Gold trim, gems, and gold decorated the lavish surroundings.

>Upstairs was the parties destination. A soft orange glow up the stairs...

Crescent!KHBFGhZsVM 886766

The owner of this place really failed to clean up.

>The ash was...

>The ash had what appeared to be a sinister looking face in it. It formed the sillhouette of a pony's face before disbanding again to float harmlessly through the air.

>Whatever it was, the denizens here knew about you now.

Crescent!KHBFGhZsVM 886779

They probably already know about me...

As much as I like to disrespect the god's offerings, I still think that's a bad idea in this place.

>Crescent felt a pain in her horn. Her spirit raven was attempting to communicate with her. The words had no meaning. It was as if the magic was nullified or blocked.



Oh lawds


[Move into Shrine Room]?

"I miss my raven...

"I miss my dad..."

>The party moves into the beautiful Shrine Room.

>Lord Fredrick Von Rufflewing, King of the Gryphon Kingdoms awaited them. He stood over the corpse of Avia, the blade still through her chest. The unholy halberd was keeping her from regenerating. In the giant gryphon's paws was a cup of Avia's blood.

"Welcome Strangers. I take it Celestia sent you to kill me?"

>Darkness emitted from him slightly and his feathers were falling off his head from the corruption.

"Kill? Pfffft. We're just here to talk, right guys?"

Crescent!KHBFGhZsVM 886795

>Crescent tugs on Aquila's tail to whisper to him

"We need to get that thing out of her body..."

Eh, not much of a talker, more like a killer.

>King Rufflewing unfurls his mighty wings and readjusts a large poleaxe on his back.

"The Empress warned me of those agents that Celestia would send. Looking upon you now has given me much confusion as I was expecting something more.... fierce?"

>He chuckles and strolls about the room, downing the cup of blood.

"I have ruled my Kingdom for thirty years, through two wars, and times of great hardship. No kin to follow up on my rule but now..."

>He points to the corpse of Avia.

"I shall live forever thanks to the blood of Avia. A sacrifice I was willing to make for the good of the Kingdom. The Empress has told me what is to come."

Crescent!KHBFGhZsVM 886800

I might be able to cover you... Just wait for a signal."

Emery 886802

"Who's this 'Empress' then? I thought you were in charge around here, not her."

Aquila [ÆtherKnight]!IZSpArkLeY 886803

Amar!hEbITNyzxg 886805


>He chuckles.

"The Empress is an honored guest of mine. She comes from a far away land seeking an alliance with my Kingship. Although she may be a lesser species, her magic is strong and I find her to be most delightful of company. The Empress has showed me much in the ways of power. Something you all will see before you die."

"Sounds like she's wearing the pants around here, not you Fredick. Wait, do Griffon's even wear pants? Ah, anyway, point is, it sounds to me like she's just using you to take control of your kingdom. And you're too distracted by this silly Avia thing to see it"

>The lordly gryphon puffs out his chest with defiance and pomp. A royal-gryphon to his very core.

>His booming voice was full of amusement.

"Ah is that so zebra? She left this morning with her consortium. Strange is it not?"

>He removes his blade and stands in an aggressive stance.

"Let us test blades chosen of Celestia."
