Temple of the Nine, City of New Atlantia

"And so time begin with Kronica Mother of all goddesses and the Queen of time. To her was born of herself Lunia the goddess of light and life and her sister Nercoesia Queen of Darkness and death. So then did Lunia and Nercoesia dance together at dusk and dawn and from light came Philyia goddess of the sea and Syliu the queen of winds. From the Dark was born Teria of the earth and Firai of the flame on whose forge great weapons are made. Then from earth and fire came Arthia warrior maiden of the goddess. And from the sea and air brewed Donira the stormbringer"

A clapping was heard as the young robed boy finished the tale of the Atlantian Goddesses.
"Very good youngling" spoke a woman cloaked in black.
"thank you lady..." but the boy was cut short by a guard in black armor "forgive me my Lady but your Sister the queen has called for the advisors"
The cloaked woman nodded and turned to the boy "you are dismissed we will finish your lesions later."

Royal Palace, City of New Atlantia...a few moments later

The dark robed woman entered the room with a bow.

"Welcome sister Sylvia, we where just discussing some disturbing intel bought from our northern lands and our fleets in the united ocean...Lord Desimus if you would please fill in my Sister."

A strong man clad in golden armor stood "of course my Queen" he said with a bow before turning to Sylvia "We have news that the city of Labrador was sacked by the Khalidor barbarians. They may try to push into our north Atlantic holdings. The legions of the area along with the Monataur and Centaur tribes are on high alert but your sister the queen wishes yours and my presance at the front."

The Queen then chimed in "with Desimus' training and your necromancy in play the barbarians will think twice before invading us."

Sylvia sighed and nodded "As you wish Sister but was there not another mater?"

"Yes the pirate Robyn's ship was said to have been sighted..we don't know if it was her or if she will cause trouble or not but our navy has been put on alert and we have placed a blockade in the straits of Panama. But your main job is to reinforce our north may the Nine protect you."

Aboard the Reaper, a few miles off the Labrador Coast

A dark Ship sailed out of the unnatural mist. Her sails where black as night and the ship red as blood and lined with the bones of dragons, whales...and even humans.
"the Reaper.." "Lady Sylvia..." came the whisper men of the Atlantian northern fleet.

"Good the fleet is here, as for us did all make the portal?" Asked Sylvia

"Aye my lady all hands are accounted for"

"Good we will hold here till dawn let the priests and mages rest before we start our patrols"

City of New Atlantia

Ariana stared out the window of her palace watching the waves as the crashed against the shore.

"My Queen your sister sends word She and her fleet made it though the portal safe and sound." spoke a maiden

"Very good news my Handmaiden. Have you heard to of Lord Desimus?"

"yes my Queen, his army marches the coast gathering warriors and mages as he goes.."

The sound of a portal came and from it came a fire mage clothed in red he bowed and spoke "My queen i bring news from Panama

City of New Atlantia

"What News from the south mage?" asked the Queen

"The blockade of Panama goes well. also our forces have strated work on a fort on the western shore" answered the mage

"And what of the City of Galapasgos? Have they show any aggression to this?"

"No my Queen the city has no real leader the southern command feels they could take the city..provided a few more legions"

Ariana shook her head "No until we know the plans of this god king no troops can be spared..." she then turned to another mage in her court "On that note send word to my sister tell her to send in the scouts..i want to know what the god king is up to" turning back to the fire mage "you return and tell them to hold at the fort."

Both mages bowed and then where gone.


The Reaper

The mage appeared before Sylvia "My lady the Queen sends word send in the Scouts the Queen wishes to know what this god king is up too"

Sylvia grinned "Finigus!"

At her word a man in black appeared from the shadow and bowed.

"Take the shadow team find out what you can...oh and no killing this time...well unless you must"

The man just grinned and returned to the shadows a few moments later the sound of a small boat was heard entering the water.

The two sisters yelled back a forth yet no sound was heard until the elder sister slapped the younger. The younger glared and storm form the palace....the frame flashed and a map of Atlantia appeared was torn in two and then burned....the Flame then rose to a mighty battle hoplites in gold fighting with hoplites in black.

Sylvia woke covered in sweat and breathing as if in a panic.

"My lady are you alright? We heard you Scream and came at once"

Sylvia looked for the voice and her eyes blinked as she focused on a group of her blackguard standing at the door.

"Just a bad Dream" Sylvia lied "I'll be fine"

At that moment a messenger peeked in "My lady your sister the queen Calls for you to join her at the palace"

Sylvia got a view of the start of her vision again before nodding "Very well I'll clean up and be there soon.."

Atlantian Royal palace

Sylvia appeared in the palace a few moments later to be greeted by her sister and many advisors and generals.

"Welcome Sister" Ariana Started "This Godking has sent word he wishes to meet also the Panama blockade picked up a Drake city ship claiming that they where sent to speak of alliance with us. We have already sent word back to both kings that we will speak to them...I want you to attend these meetings with me."

"As you wish my Sister will the meetings be held here?"

"Yes Sis also call back your shadow team..i feel we will soon know the godking's plans without them"

Sylvia nodded and closed her eyes sending her thought to her shadows...

Labrador castle

The Shadow team had spent the last few hours reaching and now climbing the castle's wall they now pulled one by one into the war room of the castle each shadow sliently read papers and notes until one found this note...

My lord as requested our scouts and patrols have increased along our border with Atlantia. Our reports show them to be of little treat this far north..in fact some belive gain could come from a war with the Atlantians.

"Those Bastards where planing to attack us?" growled a shadow

"It Seems at least this one did...maybe the Godking saved us a war unknowing...." Spoke Finigus

"It Still doesn't mean he won't attack us"

Finigus closed his eyes then spoke "Time to go we've been called back" voices where heard coming from the hall "and not a moment too soon"

Finigus in lead each shadow jumped in turn form the castle's window pulling the cord on their packs which unfolded into a tiny glider that the shadows used to disappear into the night sky

"You could have one of my Vurdmeisters assist you in that, it would save you the trouble. Just a warning about the spell; It can cause some side effects for the weak, but I do not think that you will have much trouble with that."

Wanehope put his hand on Moloch's shoulders and magic surged through the two of them. Suddenly there was a flash of white light and they appeared just outside of the Atlantean palace. He blinked for a moment until his vision stopped blurring. He gazed at the palace architect. if there were two thing that Atlantis specialized in it would be ships and buildings.

He walked up the a guard. "Tell Queen Ariana that Godking Wanehope and King Moloch of Drake City are here for an audience with her." He told him.

"If you are then where's your guards? You think this is the first time noble's have came here claiming to be royals?"

The Godking raised his hand and it began to surge with electricity. "I do not need protection. Now go tell your queen of our arrival before I decide that I do not need permission from her guards to enter." The guard became startled and quickly paced to find his queen. Wanehope crossed his arms and waited patiently.

"Well this godking is a bold one " Said Sylvia with a smirk

"The Fool's lucky i didn't call the Winged horsemen down on him." snapped Ariana

"True he lacks grace and most likley in need of a bath but a peace with him could prove useful to us"

"Or leave us in ruin.."

The vision of the burning map flew though Sylvia's mind and she went still.

"You alright Sister?"

"Yes, yes it's nothing" Sylvia put on a smile and quickly added "should we let our guests in?"

Ariana Smirked a bit "Yes but give them a bit of their own flare back send your Revant Guard to fetch them"

Sylvia grinned for real this time and spoke a spell and before her rose 20 undead Hopites clad in black armor that was covered by black robes each carred a trident and a shield and they all turned marching in a dark unison until they reached the godking and the king of drake.

"You will follow us godking and Drake king" Spoke the head Revant as his lifeless eyes rested on the two.

Wanehope hated the undead, mostly because it reminded him that he was incapable of using necromancy. He could not even raise a simple zombie, even if it was a small animal. In fact he not only disliked necromancy, but most schools of magic. Mostly because he could only cast efficiently from two schools of magic, unlike the Godkings before him that could cast from all schools. Even Vurdmeisters knew at least half the schools. However, Wanehope was a master of Evocation and Restoration, which were the two most effective schools that countered necromancy.

"Lead the way." He told the guard who then led them to the queen. He looked around as they were guided to the queen. There were many gold and silver decorations in the palace. Much different from Khalidoran decorations. In Khalidor iron replaced the value of gold, as the country's economy revolved around bartering it had very little use for gold. Even oak was placed on a higher value. The only reason that the state mined the metal was to trade with and for foreign relations. Perhaps the Atlantean loyalty could be bought.

The undead warriors eventually led them to the room that the queen was in. He walked in as if he had all right to enter.

Moloch said nothing as he followed his ally into the Queen of Atlantia's palace. Long had he sought to gaze upon the heart of this great empire, an empire that predates his own kingdom. Yet, it had fallen into decay. If the young Queen did not reverse course soon, then all would be lost for her people. They would submit to the yoke of another and their history and culture would fade away into the miss of time. Yet, this was not all that Moloch pondered.

"I hear you took the City of Labrador. The Kings in the North have ruled there for centuries and have many allies. Attacking them may not have been wise," he stated. This bit of news had disturbed him immensely. Too many enemies could overwhelm any alliance he joined.

Moloch knew he was about to make a decision that would affect his entire people. If he made the wrong one, they would be among the dead or the enslaved.

Ariana watched the two kings as they came in the godking all high and mighty got a few moo snorts from the Montaur Guard, but the creature was silinced by the queen's glare.

"I hear you took the City of Labrador. The Kings in the North have ruled there for centuries and have many allies. Attacking them may not have been wise," spoke the Drake king as he entered.

This caused the queen to pause and glace at her sister and the glace back said they where both thinking the same thing.. What was the Empire about to be asked to do...Join a war not of thier making?

The Queen cleared her mind and spoke "Welcome godking... and Drake King, I Queen Ariana of Atlantia and my sister High Oracle Sylvia greet you."

Sylvia gave a little bow before the queen spoke again " Both of you requested to speak with me and now both of you have the chance. So how i ask want is it you seek from me and my empire? Words of trade? Or is it a plea for us to join in your war?"

"The invasion of Labrador was not wise, it was a necessity. My people are starving right now and I cannot say the Starks did not expect that a starving nation would act violently when embargoed." He spoke to her, a bit harshly. Walking over to a desk he took out a parchment of paper that he had in his robe in order to uncrease it. It was, in fact, a magical scroll.

"I am in fact here to ask for aid in this war. We do not have a navy and I hear that Atlantia not only has the largest, but the finest as well." Wanehope said as he walked to the queen with scroll in hand. "I have also heard that the empire is dwindling. I have even heard rumors of potential bankruptcy. Luckily for you I need a navy to assist my armies." He paused.

"This is my proposal. In exchange for assisting Khalidor in our war I will give a large grant of gold to Atlantia for the war effort. Two hundred and fifty thousand ingots to be precise. That should last for a while. After the war is finished we will split the North Atlantic. You will get the west and I will get the east."

"Additionally I will give you twenty thousand soldiers and one hundred meisters to help you take Galapagos. Also I offer another five thousand ingots of gold and my offer of assistance in taking Galapagos will increase to thirty thousand in exchange for the Hudson Valley."

Wanehope pricked his thumb with his tooth to make it bleed. With scroll in hand he wiped the blood on the inside of the scroll making it glow red. "It is a blood contract. If I do not send your gold, your promised troops, or give you your promised land then this spell will kill me. On the other hand if you do not lend me your navy after you get your part of the bargain or betray me than you shall die. Do we have a deal." The Godking needed her to sign in order to know that she could be trusted. He knew they had necromancy, but reviving a person with both mind and soul was a stretched concept. Especially if that soul was bound.

Ariana listened to the godking glancing to her sister as he finished laying the magic paper before her. She let out a sigh then looked at the godking....

"Your words sound good and the gold even better..." She started, "I will agree to these terms with a few changes. First we will give you the Hudson valley all but one city for this price this city will serve as a trading post and embassy between our Empires. Also we will need time to move our troops and people from the valley to other parts of Atlantia. Secondly we wish a city and land on the North Atlantic coast of the African ocean as well as access of both army and people from the city to the empire proper." She paused and looked right at the godking "you agree to this and I will sign your paper."

Wanehope gave the proposition a thought. He was fine with the Atlantians owning an eastern city. After all the only reason that he wanted the North Atlantic was to have trade ports to the African Ocean. If they won then Khalidor would have port cities that could access trade from every edge of the world.

"You will get a city and southeast strip of the states. The postwar agreements are variables as we first need to win to hold onto that territory." He informed her.

As the Godking new that his enemies would all focus on the Atlantic and Labrador, he knew that the best way to weaken them was to take them on multiple fronts. Drake city could strike hard from the south with his troops from Fort Falkland. Atlantia, Khalidor, and Fuaria could blitz to the South Atlantic, fortifying in their northern border. He needed to meet with King Deacon about the war plans after the meeting.

"I understand that Galapagos is your prime target at the moment. I assume you want the Panama, but is there anything else that you want from the city?" He asked her. "The offer of assistance to take the Capitol still stands, however, you will need more soldiers to take the entire country. Khalidor has a hundred thousand soldiers to the northern border of Galapagos. We could invade from the north while you fight them from the east. When the country is taken then we can split that as well. Atlantia gets the south and the Panama, Khalidor gets the northern regions. Of course we can settle a buying the spoils as well." Wanehope waited for her to sign and also take the idea into consideration. Galapagos had even more grain supply than Labrador, but Labrador was closer to the main hub of population in Khalidor. Galapagos was next to it's borders to the west. Too close to the Freeze. If they could take the ports then Khalidor could simply ship the grain to the east instead of through land and worrying about attacks from wildlings.

Ariana looked to the god king "Very well the north atlantic is settled then..." She then walked over to a table where sat a map of the world "As for Galapagos we want want once was ours the city itself and all the coastland any other can be seen to after the war." She looked again at the godking "the best way to do this would be to have your army strike from the north while we attack from the sea. But all this is for later we need access to the African Ocean first..."

"Don't you..." Started Sylvia

"Don't tell me want to do sis he will find out about Victora sooner or later anyhow...Now godking give me that paper to sign and i will let you know why we need African coast first"

Wanehope arched an eyebrow with a hint of curiosity. No doubt the Atlantian queen would want to expand her nation's influence, but it sounded like there was something else involved. Regardless of the situation with Galapagos, the North Atlantic would have come first anyway. Khalidoran forces were gathering to all borders and digging in. The meisters were setting up shop on the new border between Khalidor and Anasai. An invasion force was ready go on the offense to the west and the largest of the Khalidoran host was already on the North Atlantic border. A blitz to the South Atlantic capitol was the goal to ending the soon to be great war quickly.

He handed the scroll to the queen. He did not know who or what this Victora was. Frankly he cared little. Khalidor was starving and would pay any cost to secure it's new food source. "Go on."

Ariana grinned as she signed the scroll "So that is that with this my Empire joins yours in war. Once again the trident will run red with the blood of our foes."

The room went silent as Ariana went back to the map "Years ago before the war that took the north atlantic from us a great ship sailed east into the African Ocean. The ship was called the Victory. It sailed until it came upon the Island here" she then pointed on the map to a large island in the eastern African Ocean. "they named the Island Victora. the island was bare save some old ruins..it was in these ruins that something was found...something that could bring the world under the trident." Ariana sighed "But then the war happened and the victory was called back to defend..but it was too lost and only this surrvived."

Ariana pulled an old paper from her desk and set it on the table it showed in detial what looked to be a being of metal and magic. "A golem army..or so the Victory reports..this army must be had if it still exists"

"A golem army?" Wanehope smirked in relpy. The idea sounded mythical and stretched. Then again the idea that dragons were still in the world seemed far fetched also. As far as he knew, the last dragons died after Roygarris killed the dragon god in what was the Freeze. Yet apparently some must have survived if the rumors were true.

"So you want a golem army from this island so that you could...what conquer the world? Even if you do find one, how do you expect to control it? Does it not seem like a dangerous idea? What if something goes terribly wrong and the army finds a way off that rock?" He was a tad bit worried of the idea. If the Atlanteans did find this army then they could challenge Khalidor with it. The only thing that the Godking knew of that could counter such a thing would be Krull. He shuddered with the mere thought of them.

"When you do make the expedition, I want an agent of mine to join. She's an experienced sailor and a good fighter. Captain Robyn Sheva."

Ariana was about to agree with the godking until she heard the name of the pirate. Her eyes darkened as she glared at the godking "You said nothing of working with fucking pirates..and her the scarlet bitch do you know how high a bounty my navy has for her?"

"Yes if there is one thing my sister hates it is pirates" chimed in Syliva "This Robyn is belived to be the cause of the loss of several Atlantian merchant ships and even attacking Warships in the night."

"My sister speaks true i would see that slime bitch hanged before i would ever work with her."

One of the Queen's adviser then spoke up "Forgive me my Queen but perhaps if our new ally wishes to keep his pirate he could pay for her crimes with his gold and she can be forgiven."

Both the queen and her sister looked at each other then the queen spoke "Very well if you want us to work with pirates you must pay the fee for her crimes...if not she will die if she enters Atlantian seas or lands"

"Fine. She can be used elsewhere. I am sure that your navy is fine without support." He said nonchalant. He could use Robyn to transport the Vanguard to the Freeze. A task simpler said then done as the quickest route to the Freeze was be navigating through the icy rivers. No doubt the wildlings would act up soon with the recent absence of soldiers occupying the region.

"That being said I believe our business is done. Your navy will destroy the South Atlantic's navy and transport my soldiers to Drake City. I will dispatch my soldiers when I return." He told her. Wanehope was anxious to return to his army. He needed them to move as soon as possible.

Ariana just nodded to the godking "very well we shall prepare the south fleets for a raid and blockade of the South Atlantic" She looked to the drake king any navy support you can bring would be of great help too" She took a breath then spoke again "now unless there is more ethier of you wish to add then as the godking said our business is over for today"

Moloch had to admit, he found Wanhope's explanation about his people's values amusing, but it made sense in a way. Food in the Khalidorian's lands was a lot rarer than precious metals. It was only logical that they would not value it as much as himself and the rest of the southern lords, though he found Wanhope's claim to have been cheated by the Starks in trade rather interesting. Were the Khalidorians' values changing? At Ariana's question about his navy, he smiled slightly.

"Drake's navy is small, but efficient, my friend. We strike fast and hard in a battle, but we focus mostly on landing our troops safely. We do not have the numbers in ships to fight large sea battles. We are, however, supplemented by mercenaries and pirates. I am ready to put my fleets at your disposal, however."

"If we are discussing land, it is logical for my people to have claim over much of the South Atlantic Kingdom. We have gotten good at assimilating South Atlantic citizens. My armies, of course, are prepared at t a moment's notice."

She was standing outside of the Atlantean palace. Two men stood in front of as a guard ran up to the palace gates. "Tell Queen Ariana that Godking Wanehope and King Moloch of Drake City are here for an audience with her." Queen Ariana? Godking Wanehope? King Moloch? Reaching out her hand she attempted to touch the Drake King but her hand went right through him. Am dreaming she thought as the guard responded as any guard should questioning the men that appeared out of nothing and wished to see his queen. In response to this the Godking raised his hand and it began to surge with electricity. "I do not need protection. Now go tell your queen of our arrival before I decide that I do not need permission from her guards to enter." Fuck the gods! Not only is he a pompous ass but he holds power like that of Ajax. Just what this world needs.

Her eyes widened when twenty undead Hopites clad in black armor that was covered by black robes each carrying a trident and a shield in hand as they marched in a dark unison approached the gate. "Fuck. The. Gods. What is this queen the daughter of fucking Hades." Mira shouted as she the two men followed the undead into the palace. She didn't wish to follow but that was not the way these dreams worked. Following behind the two the Drake King spoke as they entered. "I hear you took the City of Labrador. The Kings in the North have ruled there for centuries and have many allies. Attacking them may not have been wise." You have no idea. Mira thought to herself as a devious smile grew on her face.

"Welcome godking... and Drake King, I Queen Ariana of Atlantia and my sister High Oracle Sylvia greet you. Both of you requested to speak with me and now both of you have the chance. So how i ask want is it you seek from me and my empire? Words of trade? Or is it a plea for us to join in your war?", the Queen spoke addressing her uninvited guests. "The invasion of Labrador was not wise, it was a necessity. My people are starving right now and I cannot say the Starks did not expect that a starving nation would act violently when embargoed." Whether or not any other parties in the room felt any sympathy for Wanehope or his people was beyond her but she personally did not. Starving nation or not what the severity of what Wanehope did was unjust and nothing would stop her or the others from making sure him and those that joined his side would be punished.

Walking over to a desk he took out a parchment of paper that he had in his robe in order to uncrease it. "I am in fact here to ask for aid in this war. We do not have a navy and I hear that Atlantia not only has the largest, but the finest as well." Her brown eyes rolled at the comment of Atlantia having the finest navy. She wasn't aware of numbers in the case of Atlantia one thing that she did know was that their navy wasn't taught and commanded by the daughter of the sea as the Kingdom of Tripartite navy was. She wounder how Dalila would respond to that comment as Wanehope continued on. "I have also heard that the empire is dwindling. I have even heard rumors of potential bankruptcy. Luckily for you I need a navy to assist my armies." An empire built on the water that was slowing submerging in debt. This was interesting. "This is my proposal. In exchange for assisting Khalidor in our war I will give a large grant of gold to Atlantia for the war effort. Two hundred and fifty thousand ingots to be precise. That should last for a while. After the war is finished we will split the North Atlantic. You will get the west and I will get the east. Additionally I will give you twenty thousand soldiers and one hundred meisters to help you take Galapagos. Also I offer another five thousand ingots of gold and my offer of assistance in taking Galapagos will increase to thirty thousand in exchange for the Hudson Valley."

If it wasn't personal before it had just gotten personal now. Her friends were one thing but now he crossing a line when it came to her wine. No one, not even Jupiter himself, would disrupt the flow of Galapagos wine. She wasn't sure how the Galapagos King was fairing with the blockage but she knew it would be dealt with before it caused damaged with the Kingdom of Tripartite trade with the city. As Wanehope pricked his thumb with his tooth to make it bleed with the scroll in hand he wiped the blood on the inside of the scroll making it glow red. "It is a blood contract. If I do not send your gold, your promised troops, or give you your promised land then this spell will kill me. On the other hand if you do not lend me your navy after you get your part of the bargain or betray me than you shall die. Do we have a deal." Mira while obviously not against the use of magic was not a fan of blood magic. Blood magic was evil magic which at this point she was far from surprised that Wanehope dabbled in this as well.

The meeting was held for what felt like hours. By the time the deal had been made Mira was sitting on the palace floor just wishing to awake. "So that is that with this my Empire joins yours in war. Once again the trident will run red with the blood of our foes." That meant that going into this war Wanehope had the forces of his own army, that of the Drake King's, the Atlantian Queen's and the Fuarians. This did not worry Mira in the less especially now that she knew of what he enemies planned. The forces of the Kingdom of Tripartite would by arriving by noon and the Valyrian forces would be a day behind that. She would warn Kenna and get Kenna to war her uncle as what was going to be arriving on his shores. More time passed when finally she heard the words that concluded this longing drawn out meeting. "Now unless there is more either of you wish to add then as the godking said our business is over for today.", and just like that she was awake.

Sitting up in her bed she spared no time as she climbed out of bed and ran to the door. "You! Come here. Quickly!" She said calling out to a servant who was standing down the long hallway. When she approached Mira told her, "I need to speak with my cousins, your princess, her lady, the silver queen and Jon Stark. If they are asleep than have them woken and tell them to meet me in the meeting courtier at so as possible. It is gravely important." The woman could hear the level of urgency in Mira's voice and left right away. Closing her chamber doors she dressed herself and hurried out of the room to inform them of everything she had seen and heard.

Mira stood in the meeting courtier with her arms crossed against her chest and her foot impatiently beating against the marble flooring. What part of gravely important does no one seem to understand she thought to herself as Kenna was the first to arrive. Her foot stop as she unfolded her arms letting them fall at her sides. "Where's Lady Davina?" she asked when she noticed that the lady was not by her princess side. Kenna hadn't had the chance to answer before Ajax came strolling into the courtier. "Do you recall at what hour we left the infirmary last night? I do. Which is why I was asleep." Mira rolled her eyes, snapping her fingers she than pointed to the table surround with empty chairs, "Sit. Now." She heard his groaned as he mumble something under his breath as he went and sat down awaiting the arrival of the others.

Jasunr and Dalila were the next to arrival walking in together. "Mira. It's early." Dalila complained as her and Jasunr walked over to the table and took two of the empty seats. Amelia and Jon arrived shortly after one coming after the other. Just as she was about to yet again ask where Davina was she arrived with two men."Who are -", she paused for a moment before just shaking her head point to the table where the others sat,"It doesn't matter. Everyone just sit so I can explain why I've you all .... well most of you here." When Davina and her guests had sat Mira walked to the end of the table and began to speak.

"So last night as I slept I dreamt. This dream wasn't just a dream but-"

"You saw the future?"

"The past. I witnessed Wanehope forging his newest alliance. He has not only rallied the Drake King to his side but the Atlantans as well. The man seems to possess magic similar to that of Ajax and the Atlantans are practicers of necromancy. In exchange for assisting Khalidor in the coming war Wanehope has promised the Queen of Atlantia gold. Two hundred and fifty-five thousand ingots to be precise. As it would seem Atlantia has fallen on tough times and are in serious need of the Khalidorian gold." She took a moment as she thought about what else she had heard and seen before continuing.

"He has also granted the Atlantian Queen thirty thousand of his men to help her take the capital city of Galapagos. Apparently he has a hundred thousand soldiers to the northern border of Galapagos. The godking spoke of invading from the north while the Atlantians would fight from the east. However, the Atlantians Queen sees the the best way of attacking as being Wanehope's army striking from the north while her navy attacks from the sea." Remembering Wanehope's comment about the Atlantians having the greatest navy in the known word. Shifting her gaze to Dalila she added, "Also according to the so called godking the Atlantians have not only has the largest, but the finest navy in the lands. As the daughter of the sea you may wish to do something about these rumors. The last thing we need is your father's delicate feelings getting hurt and him unleashing a wrath of earthquakes, tidal waves and hurricanes galore."

"We will see who's naval fleet is better when hers is sinking to the bottom of the ocean." Dalila spoke clearly annoyed by this. Mira seeing this couldn't help but smile. Dalila was normally the passive one of the group. Opting to do anything to avoid war but when it came to her kingdom, her family and the water she would kill without a second thought.

Getting back on track she continued on about the enemy's plans. "According to the Atlantian Queen years ago a great ship sailed east into the African Ocean. The ship was called the Victory. It sailed until it came upon the island. They named it the Island Victora. In the ruins of the island some kind of golem army. The queen wants to find this island as she claims it could bring the world under the trident."

"It's highly unlikely that something such as this exists. Especially on some unknown forgettable island."

"That may be true, but in a world of dragons and magic there it's anything I would say couldn't have at least at one point in time have existed. Anyways a may existing golem army is the least of our worries at the moment. It turns out that the pirate ship you saw in your vision was that of Captain Robyn Sheva. I heard her name spoken at the meeting. Wanehope is having the Atlantian navy deployed to destroy the South Atlantic's navy and transport his soldiers to Drake City. She will be sending out her fleets to raid and blockade the South Atlantic."

"So in this three pact alliance, Wanehope get's the usage of the Atlantian and what I would guess also Drake City's naval forces. The Atlantians will get much needed funds and as they see it they will all expand their lands."

Mira nodded. "Am not sure if anything was signed between Wanehope and Moloch but a blood contract was used between him and the queen. If either doesn't hold up their end they will die."

"A bit extreme."

Mira just shrugged. "Northerns."

Jon listened to Queen Mira speak with growing concern. Wanhope alone had taken over his country in the blink of an eye. An allegiance now with the Fuarians, the Atlanteans and Drake City only made their duty all the more difficult. Still Jon had to admit, new alliances or not Jon's allies still out numbered his enemies with ease. Not to mention the living god spawn and the mother of dragons on his side victory was not at all out of the question. Jon had seen what Wanhope was capable of but all men could die, he was no different. Jon sat back in his seat, bringing his hand to his chin in thought. He was trying to see the plan, the best course of action. He remembered back to his training as a boy at Winterfell with Ser Rodrick. He remembered pouring over old maps and tomes of battles long fought. Ser Rodrick would test him endlessly, forcing him to glean the strategies that worked and the ones that didn't. Where mistakes were made and discovering what one commander was plotting against the other.

"They're driving a wedge between us, they want to split us up so we can't overwhelm them."

Jon said, thinking out loud to the royals gathered. The decision to have a dual invasion was wise. Wanhope knew he was out numbered and an all out battle in The North would only force him to put his army and the armies of his allies against a vastly larger force. Attacking the Galapagos while striking south from Winterfell will force Jon's allies to divide their forces to deal with both threats. Jon started thinking of the best way to neutralize at least one of these threats. Wanhope had a secure foothold for now in The North. As long as he held Winterfell he could strike south anytime. They needed to route him out of his family's keep.

"We have to take Winterfell. Take his foothold in The North."

Jon's mind returned home. He was in the wolfswood and the isle of faces, he walked through the riverlands and the godswood. He could see the great houses of his country as well. The Karstarks with their white sunburst sigil and the Umbers of Last Hearth carrying their banners depicting a giant breaking free of chains. The Boltons and their flayed man and the trout of House Tully along with all the rest. They were Northmen, proud men. Men not made to kneel easily. Northerners are bred to endure, to survive. But how to find them and unite them?

Slowly his gaze drifted to Amelia Targaryen as it was tending to do with increasing regularity as of late. Yet this time it wasn't to merely linger on her beauty but in remembrance of the words she'd spoken to him. "Jon you are the last Stark of Winterfell. You are now the sole heir to your father's throne and the only Stark capable of saving the North. If you aren't going to live for yourself than do so for the people who need you." His people, they were his people. His father's people and his father's before him. The men of the North were Stark men, men loyal to his house and name for thousands of years. Brandon the Builder united the people of The North to battle the White Walkers along side the Children of The Forest during the Long Night. A Tully married into the Stark family and swore the Riverlands to the Kings of Winter. A Stark granted a keep and lands to a younger son, Karlon, in return for putting down a rebellion. His family then grew up into the Karstarks. Starks fought the wildlings and their so called Free Kings beside the Umbers of Last Hearth, thus earning their fealty. Boltons? Back then they were the bane of the North. A few were even rumored to wear their enemies' flayed skins as cloaks. But after centuries of war, they too bent the knee. They were all loyal and have been for years, they would fight for him now if only they knew that a King in the North yet lived.

"I have to get North, I have to go home. If I can get back into The North I can unite my people. Northerners do not bend the knee easily. There will be many who resist Wanhope and his forces, men loyal to House Stark, men who'll fight for me. If I can get north I can unite my fathers... my bannermen and take the fight to Wanhope from the inside. We take Winterfell from him he'll lose what he's gained. He'll lose his ability to strike further south. That would isolate the Atlanteans on the border of the Galapagos where we could then destroy them without them receiving any support from Khalidor."

Another idea sprang to his mind as well, mad but it might ensure the naval battles stays in their favor as well as keep Wnahope busy while Jon sneaks back north.

"This pirate captain of Wanhope's, this Robyn Sheva. She could make getting North all the easier if she's raiding his coasts and ships while we sneak by. Do we know why she's working with Wanhope? I'd wager it's gold, only thing I've ever known to motivate a thief. If that's the case she can be bought. We should try and bring her to our side as well. The more we take from Wanhope, the more we isolate him, the easier it will be to put a sword through his heart."

"I believe our business is done with that so I shall take Moloch and leave. My council will teleport the gold to your treasury from Khalidor. You will have the last of it by the end of the week. Our alliance needs a name still. From this day forward we shall be known as the Septem League." With that Wanhope teleported himself and Moloch back to Drake city.

His eyes flashed again, but his vision came clear after a moment to which he then turned to the Drake king. "Your part in this war is essential. You must take the soldiers I have placed in Fort Falkland and combine them with your forces to attack the South Atlantic. Blitz for their capitol. If you hold out long enough my own forces will meet you there. Good luck" Once again Wanhope teleported.

Upon arriving to Winterfell the Godking saw that most of his army had moved into the city. The slave armies were rebuilding the defenses by the masses. He would ask his advisers if the project had begun or was late. If it was late then heads would roll. Preparing for sleep he spoke his prayer to Khali. "Khali come. Khali live in me. Khali take this my offering, the strength of those who oppose you." Then fell into a deep slumber.

Ariana watched as the two kings vanished "So it begins dear sister" she looked to her sister "I will leave you in command of our ground forces you will gather at Bermuda City there lord Desimus will meet you with the northern legions from the Hudson Valley. You will also need to gather up the wondering Centaur and Minotaur clans. Once you have the men join with the godking to take the North atlantic."

Sylvia nodded "As you wish dear sister but may i ask what you will be doing?"

"I will be in the captial preparing for the push across the mexican sea."

'But Who will lead the fleet to crush the South Atlantic?"

"Grand Admiral Merui"

"The fish girl?"

"She is half merfolk and our best Admiral she will not fail us"

A third voice then broke in "Forgive me my queen but one of the inventors claims he has something that can't wait"

The queen looked annoyed at the man "What is it?"

"i'm afaid it is something you must be shown a portal to his ship awaits"

"Ariana sighed "very well i'll come sis you are free to go and guards summon lady Merui i wish to speak to her when i return" without another word she vanished into the portal...
