“The Book of Kings.”
Join The Mounties
New to all of this?
A little confused? Don't worry...

What about the 94 Mounties? We make sure they didnt sacrifice in vain. That’s what.
I’m not trying to defend them because they’ve let a lot of people be hurt and even killed by not acting, but they’d been hunted for what, centuries, by The Silver? They know them better than anyone. And they thought the only way they could survive and possibly fight someday, was to hide until they could strike (at least I hope that was their plan.) I guess I’m trying to see the human side of them because it would be such a loss, all that rich history and knowledge and experience wasted because of their fear.
We’re brave. They aren’t. But I’m so disappointed. I was like @OracleSage. Part of me thought we’d join them.
They’re stealing a magic artifact to keep and study for their own purpose right now. Same coin, different side.
Maybe they have a longer term view and think they are focusing on bigger mysteries. Maybe they should have asked first.
They want to hide and only come out and fight if we fail? Then either all help us together or get back under your rock and out of our way.
Yes to all of this @Robert. I could cry. Sorry, that’s ridiculous. But I thought we’d meet more like us at the top of this climb, if we made it.
I’m with what everyone has said above. I’m extremely disappointed in the houses, all of them really. It doesn’t matter what guild one is from, it’s important to value life, and while I understand MM thinks they are working for everyone’s long-term interests, I don’t think they are. For me, the ends never justify the means.
I don’t know about everyone else, but now I’m even more pumped for Saturday. We’ve got more people in our way, now, but that shouldn’t stop us from trying to open the Book. Let’s go, Mounties!
I won’t say I expected this, but…I can’t say I’m surprised, either.
To be honest, though, I’m almost glad? All of Steve’s helpful (unusual for Steve) posts about Monarch’s Mountain have been intriguing, but even if the Woolies had been entirely wiped out, the result would have been similar. I’m grateful for what came before us, and everything we have learned because of them. But they’re a relic from the Book of the Wilds, and we’re not. We’re different. Everything they always had and lost is what we’ve longed for but never known, and Ore forsake me if we let their pedantic caution stop us from striking back at the Silver and succeeding in everything we’ve worked toward. Now isn’t the time to worry about plan C-point-three. I hope Deirdre has something good up her sleeve…
You know what’s interesting to me?
The old age was called Book of the Wilds. The current age is the Book of Kings… I wonder if the future could be the Book of Briars? They have the same naming scheme, at any rate…
I feel like I need to go into tinfoil zone for a bit.
Thank you. I spent 20 minutes trying to anagram or find synonyms to anagram into a name we would know. This takes a load off.
You know what interests me? I always assumed the Collector was a leader of sorts. From the way he described it, having power but ultimately unable to directly go against the royal houses. Did anyone else feel a parallel to Cagliostro and the Silver? A position of great power chosen in some archaic way ultimately at the mercy of a committee?
And in both cases they worked to thwart their masters as much as they could.
Put a potato in that tinfoil hat theory because I think you might be cooking with fire.
I lost my way there…
I couldn’t resist…so I did a quick sketch of our Collector Birdman.
