Ancient Sins, Freedom & Assignment
Long before the Creation of man, Parodega was plagued with war. At the root of many of its wars was the hands of the four gods of war and the three gods of trickery. These gods play a huge hand in balancing Parodega. Sometimes though they have been known to cross lines.
Before the creation of man the line was crossed in a way that lead many of the other gods to call for the imprisonment of these seven gods and the other gods got the blood they demanded.
During a war between the Aasimar and the Tieflings the seven gods called in a favor owed to them from the most ancient of the bronze dragons. This favor saw this ancient bronze dragon assemble a hoard of metallic dragons to tip the scale in the side of the Tiefling army.
This unnatural and unapproved move by the council of gods lead to outrage and action. The gods of war and trickery would be muzzled, blinded and silenced. They would only be able to hear. Hearing is all they needed though.
They heard every word Xeus spoke the day he declared their freedom and their next assignment. They heard every word when Xeus declared they would be unshackled and ralley a race against man that would forever become a thorn in the side of the flesh of man. They heard every word Alllight spoke when he admitted defeat and exiled himself from the realm of the gods and the moment their sight was restored it was their father Xeus they say first. They would forever be loyal to their gracious father.
Glory, Power & Trickery
Upon obtaining their freedom the gods of war and trickery immediately began scouring all of Parodega to formulate a plan. Many see the gods of war and trickery as evil gods. Truly among their ranks some are of evil nature and some of good nature. As a whole though the nature is not evil but merely balance. The means may at times be chaotic but the chaos creates order.
As a clear plan was established one of the four gods, or goddesses of war, Rovena moved from the plane of the gods and to Parodega. Upon reaching Parodega she approached the Elvan nation of Orcawkiss. These elves were elves of war and over their thousands of years of existence had grown to honor and respect Rovena to a high degree.
As Rovena walked through the streets the war elves kneeled before her and all of her beauty. They layed their swords, spears and axes down at her feet. She bathed in the glory but pressed forward to the high keep of Orcawkiss and there she went to the Orcawkiss King, Torkheven Orcawkiss who was flanked by his guard and son Venvy. As they all layed eyes on Rovena they kneeled before her and layed their weapons at her feet.
Rovena revealed to Torkheven that Xeus had freed the gods of war to lay wasted to humanity and the Orcawkiss elves were the chosen vessels by Xeus to bring this blood bath into being.
Torkheven would take these words with hesitation out of fear of the blessing placed in humanity by the gods. To which Rovena would declare at the first strike from Orcawkiss on Anok the blessing would be turned to a cursing as all of the power of the blessing would be placed on the shoulders of the Orcawkiss nation. They would become Rovenas personal blade against Anok.
Torkheven would still take these words with hesitation. At that very moment though a scout would rush into the throne room unaware that the goddess Rovena was present. The scout would apologize but Rovena would beckon him to speak for she knew what news the scout brought. It would be news that bore fruit of the gods of trickery.
The scout would declare that two human were seen beating an Orcawkiss elf. They screamed and scolded the elf. They spoke of the Orcawkiss nation being inferior and less than them. They said they built their city in the old home of Orcawkiss and if they didn’t stay out of their way they would take more than their land. The scout then said the humans through the elf from a high cliff. The scouts tried to track the humans and the body thrown but tracks were never found.
Torkheven would be enraged with this news not knowing the two humans and the elf were actually the gods of trickery in disguise. Rovena would console Torkheven and council him, telling him her advice to strike is truly in his best interest. She says by the words of Xeus, humanity is a plague in society.
Love, Lust & Ecstasy
Following the council and manipulation of the gods Torkheven sends a messenger straight to the City of Anok to declare if the people of the tribe of Anok do not evacuate the city of Anok and return the land to Orcawkiss, they will be met by war.
Knowing very well that the people of Anok backed by the nation of Vos would most likely not surrender the nation of Orcawkiss immediately began organizing their armies and plan of attack. In the middle of the preparation Rovena would appear to Torkheven once more. This second appearance would be to speak a pre-war blessing over Torkheven and the armies of Orcawkiss.
This pre-war blessing would not be what Torkheven expected. For it was not a traditional pre-war blessing but instead an incantation taught to Rovena by the gods of Trickery. The purpose of this incantation, when Torkheven lays eyes on Evra, the wife of Anok, Torkheven will be overwhelmed with love, lust and ecstasy. The plot of the blades and Fates, the gods of War and Trickery run much deeper than expected.
