    Gargax

    The delegates from Gargax's realm turn to eachother, dead and living alike, and speak in the maddened clacking tongue of theirs, before the one who had spoken before turned back to the assembled delegates.

    To the Proteoss

    We would like one of them, what would you like in exchange?

    To Alrinach

    No, we would be happy to set up a school for ourselves, it would double as a temple, as biomagic is the gift of Cellis.

    Cyrus

    One of the ogres walks over to study the machine carefuly. After a moment he shrugs and turns to look at the ambassador. "How durable is it though? Does it have Cyrus' blessing?"


    *************************************************

    Meanwhile a dwarven delegation arrives at the city as well. Dressed simply, they look about curiously, mostly at the architecture and the strange appearances of all the other races. They stroll up to the gate and wait.

    **************************************************

    Cyrus sends a summons to Baldier, wishing to speak with him.

    Alrinach

    Veritia disappears unobtrusively from the meeting hall and greets the Dwarves at the gate, leading them back through the city to the summit if they choose to follow.

    At about this time, Alrinach's flight of wyverns arrives in the city and, their silver scales glinting in the setting sun, settle around the tallest towers of Alomarra, an awe-inspiring sight.

    I arbitrarily declare it dusk.

    So far I have that Cellis will establish a school of magic, and Gargax might, depending on what the other races do. Cyrus might, and Erothayce will once the library is complete. Is that about right?

    The ogres shake their heads sadly. "Without the blessing of Cyrus the Smith, you work will not endure. How can you make something that lasts without the backing of the god of crafting? Cyrus the Smith is our god, and the god of all those who craft or create with their hands."

    Meanwhile, Cyrus bows to Baldier as he appears. "Greetings brother. I am Cyrus the Smith. You are the god of these protoss, yes? They have created some wonderful objects. But they are not as great as they could be."

Your people's inventions are wonderful, but they could be even better if they asked for my aid in their endeavors. As the god of the people closest to my own in skill and ability, I thought I would make this offer to you first: in return for simple prayers and an offering or two, I will enhance your people's crafts, make them stronger or better. What say you?"

Their number grow almost exponentialy and the quickly overrun the other colonies and expand to ther portions of the mountains, and eventually the foothills.

    [super-ants expand to Mountains in 8,7 7,8 and the foothills in 8,6]

    Ikassi

    Ikassi had decided to attend, though from a safe distance underground. What was this? Weapons? Necromantic arts forcing the dead to do the work of the living? She was glad she had raised her people how she did so they would not fall prey to these arts. The knowledge seekers seemed agreeable enough and so did the crafter.

    Her plans would be set back, but it would have to be.

    Also, those giant ants were getting too close for comfort. No worry. She burrowed to the spot she had set the Orb of Inhibition. The time it had spent in the ground had had a significant effect on the dead-magic field. That added on the innate qualities of the Myrmici had increased it's influence to touch the surrounding lands.

    Mavil

    Mavil descended upon his domain to finally bring upon the most destructive race to exist. He founded an area with a village of people and formed all around them volcanoes and a desecrate land that looks to seems like it itself has been destroyed. He formed mountainous barriers and gave the area a strong sense of power. He now had a large wasteland in which his people now lived. As to not destroy his soon-to-be follower's minds he began crafting an avatar. Soon an eruption occurred and from the flow of lava emerged a immense being of fire and ash. He approached the small town and looked down upon the villagers. Mortals, today you are blessed. You have been given a god who is superior to many others. I shall grant you power and form you a new. You shall remember my name and worship me, for I am Mavil, The Passionate Flame of Destruction.

    With that the lava overflowed the town and smothered the citizens. Soon one after another sprouted creatures of fire and ash. They stood all the same before but in place of flesh and bones was nothing but pure raw energy.

    You have been given great power. From now on you shall be known as the ashenborn. From here I trust you to create lives to help you destroy. Create weapons to help you conquer. Create flames of war to spread dominance. With that the large being began to smolder and shed as a much smaller being appeared.

    From today on I will be your guide and train you to achieve power.

    Saradinus then looks up something in his book.... The Trans-Epic spell category... Ah yes.... Saradinus muttered. "This one should do nicely."
    Saradinus then created a mystic spell called Dragon Shaping.... This spell was inbetween the power of an epic spell and normal spell. Dragon Shaping was for those who had devoted themselves towards the Dragon domain the most, but any follower of Saradinus could cast it, if they were strong enough.

    Saradinus created this spell...... Dragon Shape was soon discovered through inspiration through many magicians throughout the land. (Minor Godly Act)

    Saradinus'es Avatar, Myrokhan the Archmage then began to speak with the people of Teke, guiding certain Conjurors through dreams and visions one at a time. These Conjurors would be more powerful than their peers... Of course.

    The Dark Elves present at the city-of-peace begin collecting as much knowledge they can on the magic of the other races that is being deposited in the vast library. The knowledge is then funneled out of the city back to the Drow homeland where the academies of magic will study it and adapt it for their own purposes.

    After observing his followers for a long while Erothayce decided they needed more to them. After watching them wander he realized they needed to be hardier then they already were so he granted them hardiness. Now they could survive on very little in the way of food or water and the weather did not bother them much. Next he decided they needed to live longer so they could gain more knowledge and spread it around the world so he ave them extended lives.

    The earth tremmored. The earth goddes had felt the departure of the Twilight Goddess Polaris and was saddened. She felt the need to see after the well being of the city and its people. Sending a message to her people, she made a decree.

    The Twilight City and it's people are under my protection. All shrines and temples to the Goddess Polaris, especially her grand sanctuary will be maintained should she return. Be sure not to let the humans forget about their old god. Until then, we must strive to join our lands.
