Post Tavern of Diablo
Walking through the forests of the Penumbra after many years Elmo noticed that much had changed. Long had it been since she had been allowed to walk freely in this world. She walked slpwly through the forest following long forgotten trails, no longer visible to the mortal eye. Why she had been brought back to this world she did not know, only that her Lord Badangel had been ressurected after many ages to once again fight for the beliefs of Foret. She was searching now, but for what? What was it that had brought her back to this long abandon wilderness? The old protections of the Penumbra stll stood. Many traps and pitfalls were still hidden in the wood. Many of the forest creatures still stalked any who entered. Demons, ghosts, and monsteres still waited to waylay any who entered this ancient forest unbidden. Elmo did not fear them, she had been here long ago when the Penumbra was young and these precaustions were set. Why was she here? What beckoned her to the depths of the wood?

She saw it only out of the corner of her eye at first. Ruins really, not truely even ruins as much as an ancient pile of rocks. She slowly approached them as flashbacks from times long past ran through her mind. She remembered now, long ago this had been a tavern. These had been the lands of Lord Badangel. Long ago under old gods and under current ones. This is where she was to go. This is what she was searching for. The ancient tavern, This is where she would begin the rebuilding. Lord Badangel had returned. It was now the time for war to rule this land once again.

This tavern was once the pride of her guild, soon it would be so again. Elmo walked up to the ruins of the once great tavern and searched for the glyphs that had been inscribed on the pillars when it was built. Success, they remained etched in the stone and now with the return of Badangel they faintly glowed. Elmo began to repeat the words upon the scroll her lord had given her... Ilnych vongod lynclinik owenlir aparathuin constun reparatore. It was sudden and magnificent as the ruins in one sudden flash of blinding light returned to it's former glory. It was true the tavern had collapsed as Badangel fell and now that he returned the magic which held it fast had returned. Soon perhaps old allies would return as well, soon perhaps Elmo would see her old friends and allies and soon perhaps foret would once again rule all the world.

This tavern will now be used as a meeting place for The Grand Adepts. It was magnificent. In the middle of this ancient forest called The Penumbra stood the tavern. Reaching toward the sky, made of dark granite and bright marble. The tavern shone with a light that could only come from Foret. It's pillars stood tall and ornate with carvings of the heroes of old. Inside it was luxurious. There were fine tapestries hanging from the walls, paying homage to Foret. Large couches and chairs were scattered about the hall covered in soft fabrics and filled with down cushioning for comfort. Elmo looked about and wondered how long it would be until Adepts sat around this hall drinking and talking of Foret's greatness. Soon now this would be a bustling place. Elmo now went off in search of others of her faith. Perhaps her old friend Jayden could help supply her with bartender. She would send back cooks, servants, and cleaning crews but a good bartender is hard to find.

Elmo cursed herself for having been gone so long. While she had been out restoring the tavern the town had been poisoned. Luckily, Lord Badangel, being undead himself was immune to such attacks. Elmo gathered the remaining townsfolf and they moved into the forest to rebuild in the haunted depths of the Penumbra. The tavern would now be the center of their kingdom. With this it started. Soon Elmo would take revenge on those responsible. Track them down and send the furry of Foret down upon them. This would be great fun. It had been so long since Elmo had seen the blood run freely from a slit throat or the beautiful blue of a strangled guard. She longed for these things, they were her release. Lord Badangel being for the most part an honorable man did not allow her these vices very often but after such an ugly attack by the heathens surely he would condone this revenge. She set out in search of a new place to begin the training of new recruits to dfend against this type of attack in the future. Soon, things would be different. She settled down in the woods and began to chant...soon the power that once laid in these lands would be awakened.

So long had it ben since war had been visited upon these lands. The forest of the Penumbra was awakened, the spilt blood and screams of terror, the death throes of innocents had awakened her. She breathed. It could be felt now as you walked through her depths. She moved around you now, her magics awakened and her powers strong. This was an ancient forest and more that capable of protecting itself and those inside. The infidels would come, the would come and try to sneak into the lands of the Penumbra, they would not return. The forest was now their first, best, but far from only line of defense. Now the might of Foret would be revisited. Beware infidels, the forest has awakened.
