Dragons, time travel and anniversaries, oh my! 2009-06-01

Another apology for the late update is in order - but the lack of updates in no way means that we have been idle! We have progressed all the way through Crystallos, finally standing before Kerafyrm The Awakened... and then proceeding to wear him down under the weight of many plate-wearing corpses until he finally gave up. First, however, the road to him took us through the elements:

Fire was first up, with Tjudawos getting extinguished in his lava lair.

Earth was next, where we found Kildrukaun was lacking the endurance of his element.

We immediately proceeded to the Ice wing, where Zeixshi'Kar tried to give us the slip, but he was defrosted that same night.

The Air wing provided some friction to our progressional velocity, but Vyskudra succumbed to the Ancient Dominion storm eventually.

Having beaten the four elemental dragons, the path down to the hatchery underneath Crystallos was opened and Brood Mother Visziaj stood before us. Her attempts to delay us only resulted in mini-dragon genocide and her own demise, and our path to the great crystalline dragon lay clear...

In between progression raids, we also found time to take on some events courtesy of EverQuest's 10th Anniversary! Happy birthday EQ, may you have many more :) Apart from a few nostalgia trips to the Fabled Plane of Time, we also tried some of the special anniversary events such as I.R.A. 1, Sand Golem and last but certainly not least the Dragons, Dragons, Dragons! event.

We have also kept traveling through time in Seeds of Destruction!

More tampering with history had to be averted at the Battle of Bloody Kithicor, where Bahgresh eventually revealed himself after we had kept his minions from changing the outcome of the battle. Even his subtle manipulation of some of our trusted companions did nothing to stop our advance.

Next we traveled to the ancient Iksar empire, where their leaders were A Council Divided over the issue of whether to change their future or not. After figuring out who wanted which outcome (and they were indeed fickle, changing allegiances every time we approached!)

we rounded them up and ensured the vote would fall in favor of the history we know. Who said violence never solved anything?

That was not enough however, as the warlord of the Iksar empire, Kurn, set his army upon us when we tried Claiming Felbane The Dragon Slayer to prevent their victory over the Ring of Scale. After dispatching his most trusted lieutenants and countless soldiers, the weapon was in our possession and could not be used against the dragons.

This really irked Emperor Ganak, who launched a Final Confrontation between his forces and the Ring of Scale on the Field of Scale. While the vanguard of dragon bane-wielding (yes, apparently they had more of them) elite soldiers were dispatched and the dragons were saved, Jaled'Dar and Ganak took to the air and fought an epic battle. Once we had finished dealing with the rabble we took on the Emperor himself, but not before he had dealt a mortal blow to Jaled'Dar. Needless to say, we ended his reign and claimed his flying steed for our own uses...

Another piece of history saved, we were called to the Rallosian Empire of ancient times to stop Rallos Zek and his minions from succeeding in their invasion of Earth, which is now strengthened by assistance from the forces of Discord. The first step was a Showdown At The Crystal Core against the Crystalline Tyranont in the Korascian Warrens, on our way to the portal to the Rathe Council Chambers that the invading army had opened. In a frenzy of tentacles and minions, the tyran(on)t was defeated and we made our way to face Tallon and Vallon Zek inside the chambers...

To be continued!

We decided to step inside Korafax and see what awaited us there, and we were immediately rewarded with finding Pallorax the Soul Slayer waiting for us to kill him. Definitely more to come as we make further forays into the unknown reaches of Discord...

Thanks to Minta for contributing with many quotes and helping to cut them, and to everyone for their patience! I promise to keep updates flowing a bit faster in the future... :)
Also, some more quotes from this time period might make an appearance in future updates as there were so many I figured I would leave some for later! ;)
