NYBELMAR: A COLLECTION OF CHRONICLED HAPPENINGS

TABLE OF CONTENTS - HISTORICAL TEXTS OVERVIEW

 

Nybelmarians, it seems, have a penchant for recording a lot of things that, in fact, happened inconceivably long times ago. Be it from the strife-laden dealings of the Zhunite Citystates, the growth, zenith and downfall of the Krath empire, or even a note or two on which Anpagan Lord had the castle with the most moving parts at anyone time, there doesnt seem to be much that escaped the quill of the well-meant foreign documenters.

The following text is attributed to the journal of Ishalude Aramashal, one of Mistress Landaria Celene's 'Disciples of the Blood', her personal retinue of bodyguards. It details the only occasion in history wherein a Marmarran Witch Queen has been challenged to a duel by a member of the militant 'Red Sisters' organisation. Considered to be the most important event in validating the strength of the Order in all history, the clash between the Red Sisters' elusive brand of Blood Magic and the archetypeal Marmarran art of Eludian Sorcery demonstrating that the Red Sisters are most definetely a force to be reckoned with.

This account details ‘Selios the Champion’, the first Cyran champion of the Zhunite Games who eventually rose to be most praised Archon in the history of Cyras, and his rival Nakratos, a Karakanite athlete turned military captain. Claiming to be the greatest athlete in all of Zhun and the long-standing 'Titan of Karakan', Nakratos was shamed by his defeat at the hands of Selios, an amateur and underdog, in the Trials of Strength at the Zhunite Games, an event which the Karakanites had won consistently for forty years. As customary for successful athletes, both Selios and Nakratos were instated to their respected militaries and were made captains. Bitter and vengeful, Nakratos sent his company against Selios, knowing that to avoid bloodshed he would invoke the ‘Right of Champions’- a Zhunite military tradition whereby a battle between two forces could be averted if both commanders agreed to a fight to the death.
