Greetings fellow Inhabitants of Valoran,

There is a grave threat to the safety and prosperity of our world; it is known as the Voidborn. Too long have we sat idly by while the aberrant creatures of the Nether scratch at the doorway, waiting to wreak havoc and destruction upon our very existence. We must prepare; we must be able to defend ourselves; we must be able to preserve our world. To this effect, I and fourteen other Summoners have founded "The Preservers", an order of those dedicated to halting the Void's steady encroachment upon our world. It is led by the Council of Eight, each with a specific focus which corresponds to one of six divisions in our Order:

- Administration: Focuses on organizing efforts with multiple divisions, and general managerial tasks. Led by Cryypter.
- Warfare: Focuses on training and logistics for combating the Voidborn and their allies. Led by Kios Anim and Haelion Bastion.
- Research: Focuses on learning about all Void-related subjects, especially methods for repairing the barrier between this world and the Void. Led by Griffon Steelgod and Die Nacht.
- Intelligence: Focuses on discovering plans, strategies, and tactics of the Voidborn and their allies. Led by Deadeye Sniper.
- Diplomacy: Focuses on education and collaboration, both with governments and institutions, and with the general public. Led by Verroq Ex Valerian.
- Finance: In charge of the treasury, procurement of resources and supplies, and all other financial matters. Led by Liliana Monteclaire.


Founding Members (Other than The Council):
Rafeo Fyre
Fjord
Epic
Domex
Tekun Valos
Motas
Hige

We ask that anyone who wishes to protect their friends, their family, and their society, join us in this most important of causes. The Order gathers at a Manor on the road between Noxus and Zaun, and any who wish to become a member must attend. The Manor has round-the-clock guard, and is protected by Ballistae. All weapons will be confiscated and locked in a metal box in your chambers. Also, everyone, even founders, will be required to ingest a magic suppressant, the antidote to which will be locked with your weapons. In addition, there will be a teleportation inhibiting field surrounding the manor, preventing teleportation inside or into the area.

We look forward to your arrival,
-- High Councillor Cryypter, of the Council of Eight

To High Councillor Cryypter.

Those who wander the Shurima live in constant fear of the Voidborn. I regret that i have not been able to contact you before hand but time has been against me. We have life hard enough as it is with this consant threat. To that end I shall attend, but I have business to attend to before hand. As such I shall arrive in the next week as the business has no defined timetable.

Yours
Nin-aj Fridge High Nomad of the Shurima.

Ah so our first official meeting is finally occurring? May we not be sieged by the Voidborn while this happens. You can expect me there as usual but be warned, the manor's defence against dimensional magic is useless against my terrible sense of direction.

Steaming tea flowed steadily into the porcelain teacup, filling it up steadily. The gloved hand holding the teaset slowly lowered the kettle, stopping the liquid's decent into the cup before a single drop reached the floral patterns decorating the rim of the glass. Soundlessly, the kettle reached the table, not even a quiet splashing sound filling the air as the purple glove released it. In one fluid motion, the teacup made its journey from the tablecloth to the lips of the one who had poured it, not a single ripple moving across the liquid within the cup.

A small smile crossed Liliana's lips as she sipped the tea she had poured, watching the gates of her manor. Before long, her invited guests would arrive, and she had ppositioned herself to be ready to greet them. Not a soul would enter the grounds of the Manor without seeing her, or being seen by her, as she had positioned herself, and the table she was at sat but a few feet away from the gate, just inches off the beaten path to the Manor itself. Another few drops passed through her lips as she waited, the measured flow comparable to the gate itself.

One of the Manor's staff, a boy no more than twelve came out of the manor, carrying a tray covered in various fruit. The boy's eyes darted back and forth watchfully, a sign of his poor upbringing. Nervously, he set the tray on Liliana's table, uncertain of what she would do. To the child's suprise, she pulled out a chair, gesturing for him to sit down as she poured tea into a cup for him. Too afraid to deny her request, the boy sat down, quickly drinking the poisoned tea before getting up and walking off, returning to his work. It was a simple ritual, but effective nontheless, as it would give her a means of control over her newest employee.

((I am here to join.))

Rafeo and Narenth walked towards the manor heading from Zaun; Passing through the gates Rafeo notices the heavy fortifications I wonder if the balistae are element infused

Dusty from Their journey Their weapons and clothing don't look like much;
somewhat tired and needing to clean his gear Narenth looked like a simple soldier, but those who really looked could see the fighter in his ready pose.

Rafeo was actually quite clean, looking as if he had recently bathed, standing upright He stood slightly shorter than average and looked much like a petty merchant;all the while he was really scanning the whole area for threats.

looking up Towards the manor Rafeo said to Narenth "It is time for the meeting" He simply nodded in reply.

Entering the Manor Rafeo Found Miss Monticlaire Sitting and greeted her in form
Miss Monticlaire I presume? I am here for the meeting.

((Here is Rafeo.))

Profile: http://summoners.shurelia.com/profiles/174))


Kios Anim rides towards the Manor with Sahn, his bodyguard close behind him. The two men are travel-worn, their cloaks still wet from the snows of Freljord. Kios looks for a second time at the site of the Preservers' headquarters. It looks more like a small citidel than a mansion. He waves his hand at the guards on the curtain wall as they ride past. They were good men, as he learned upon inspecting the castle. They knew their duty and had no qualms against performing it. As far as I can see at least. Something is strange about their behavior, they seem... frightened. Resolving to consider the matter later, Kios rides up the ramp towards the gate and Liliana Monteclaire.

Even dismounted, Kios presents an imposing figure. Years of intense physical training both in Ionia and abroad show on his tall frame as the valley wind plays slightly with his heavy black cloak. Kios is every inch the warrior, from his short dark hair and alert eyes to his ancient armor and arsenal of weapons. Behind him, Sahn also dismounts and leads their horses. While Kios' clothing could best be described as cosmopolitan, Sahn is clearly from the Shurima Desert, his dark skin, flowing robes and curved swords being but the first hints of origin.

Kios turns to Liliana and bows slightly, his gloved hands clasped before his chest in the Ionian manner. Having just met the woman, the warrior has chosen to refrain from passing judgement based on others' actions. So far, she just looks to be a canny and ambitious, business woman. Of course, looks can be deceiveing, can they not? Hiding his wry thoughts, Kios simply says, "Miss Monteclaire, it is an honor to see you again."

Rising from his bow, Kios makes eye contact with his hostess before continuing. "I must once again apologize for my abrubt departure after the inspection. There were matters that required my intention, though I am glad to say that they have been resolved to my satisfaction." Kios turns to the two men standing next to her and bows to each of them. "Greetings, Rafeo and Narenth I presume? I have heard much of you and it is an honor to finally meet you in person."

Edit: ((An artist's note on the castle, the road that reads Mogron Pass should say Zaun. I misread the map when I was making it, but it takes a while to change the image. It should be fixed shortly.))

Zee'elo trudged along the path he swore was endless. And teleportation magic was blocked within the manor he could see looming beside him. At least it looked like it could hold a siege, and security was only a good thing. But somewhere he wondered if such a blatant show of attention was wise on their part. The Void had eyes and ears everywhere, undoubtedly they would have found out. And undoubtedly they would act. That was how it always worked.

He continued to stride alongside the river, searching for a bridge to get across. He sighed as the wind ruffled his dull white robe. There weren't many people capable of owning properties like this one, his curiosity had been piqued. At the very least, The Preservers had forged good contacts. They would need that and more in the time to come.

He smiled when he saw the bridge and strode across it, staring at the compound that rose up before him. Two ballistae on the walls. Praying that he wouldn't be shot in two, he continued the climb, and walked cautiously through the open gate. He eyed a group that appeared to be conversing. His smile widened as walked in their direction. At any rate, he assumed these were the hosts of the event. He drew close and stopped. It was probably better for them to question him than for him to interfere in their discussion.

((Yay RP! Also, my profile http://summoners.shurelia.com/profiles/179))

I approach the mannor walking. Contrary to the original plans, this was my first visit to the fortress, and I can't hide my curiosity and wonder. It is far more impressive than the map Kios lended me. I hear my red and white traditional Ionian robes flanning as I walk up the first bridge, feeling the texture and the hidden blade I carry. I see a fairly big group gathering a short distance ahead of me.

My mind is on another place thou. I can't stop thinking about a... disturbance I felt coming from Ionia, and I feel it's something big. Something important. Something disastrous. I was thinking about this, when I reach the group. I recognize miss Monteclaire and Kios. I do a mid-bow to them, and I look to the new faces.

"Good day, gentlemen." I say to them, "My name is Domex. I come from Ionia, and it is a pleasure to meet you". I feel their auras, and am impressed by the strenght most of them bear. So much power gathered here in one place. And to think it won't matter, given the Void unleash his full strenght on us.

Die Nacht

Senior Member

((Here I am: http://summoners.shurelia.com/profiles/31)))

Nacht finally reached the Manor, "looks more like a castle than a Manor, but whatever", he said. He didn't travel far, he was in Zaun fro the past month in a science conference he had been invited to. He is of average high, weak upper body muscles and curious look: a true scientist.

He approached the gates and showed the front guards his insignia that the order had given him ((btw, do we have one?)). The guards were from the near by villages, Askay and Meland, that the Noxian empire had taken to secure the routes to Zaun. They needed jobs, the Manor can help.

The guards let Nacht in. He walked through the courtyard, seeing all the recruits and training on it, towards the fort, where he assumed the labs where. There was Kios, getting off his horse and walking towards the Fort. Though Nacht knew that Kios and him were on the same "team", he waited a while, from afar, before Kios entered the Fort: Kios is a very intimidating warrior, at least to a weakling like Nacht.

As he waited for Kios to enter the fort, Nacht looked around, see if the maybe the labs were outside. All he could see were the recruits training. Kios was now in the fort, which Nacht then approached. He entered. There was Liliana, oh how Nacht wanted to avoid her. Taking advantage of every little poor creature in Valoran for profit. He knew well of her reputation, but she was needed.

"Ms. Monteclaire", said Nacht as he made a half-bow. "So, where are the labs?"

((You can find limited information about Deadeye here at http://summoners.shurelia.com/profiles/119))

The figure in the black cloak trudged along the beaten path of the road, but in a way that caused people to take no heed to what appeared to be just another shadow cast by the sun. Whenever someone seemed to notice him, the man would simply hide behind a nearby tree or house or in some cases the person themself. As of yet nobody had realized he was there, and the man was content with that.

Deadeye Sniper...a name that almost seemed to belong to a different person at a different time. He trod along the road for what seemed like an eternity until he finally arrived to what seemed to be the Preserver headquarters. In no rush, Deadeye teleported to the back of the manor taking care that Liliana and her servants would not see him. Seeming to reach into his cloak, he pulled out a bottle of perfume, a dagger with symbols inscribed on it, a modified hextech revolver, a small notepad with a pencil, and a small vial containing an untested "universal" antidote.

Hiding these things amongst his person Deadeye went back to the front of the manor and walked through the front entrance. Immediatly he felt the presence of strong wards circling the manor strenghtening the dimensional barrier in this area. Glad that he was smart enough to bring supplies he slightly bowed to everyone there before making his way to the nearby shade. Keeping the shadow cloak he always wore tight around him he almost seemed to disappear into the darkness, and from there he watched.
