Oak Chronicles: Old Enemies, New Friends

On the 8th of February, 1032, the powerful military alliance was concluded between our Order and the Varangian Guard - our good friends who bravely fought pigdogs side by side with us. They are probably the best heavy shock infantry on whole Abella.

Oak Chronicles: The Fall of the Corrupt King

After the last defeat, King Lattimer I of Dunbar decided to not rely on his own inept warriors and let the evil come into his lands - an army of bandits and renegades, lead by Taoyar 'of Verna,' came to fight with the Hammer of Midland at his call. The fool recruited allies, but also acquired many more enemies: the mighty Coalition troops came, too, and smashed the bandits like puppies.

After the victory over Playhard pigdogs, peace was established - only a few bandits continue to plunder peasants, but we hunt them in the forests and the fields to carry out stern but fair judgment. Two most known bandits of Abella, Gremaldo and Kenshin, were beheaded by sir Buraak of the Holy Oak recently.

Using the traitor, bandits attempted to enter the Knight of the Holy Oak garrison, but only death awaited them inside the castle. A few survivors spread false rumors that they destroyed Holy Oak, although everyone can come and sure that it is survived and in perfect order.

We also put a bounty on the turncoats Tjoerk Blaublut and his associate, Roguran "Rago the gorilla" Berserkerson, for desecrating the Holy Oak and fleeing like cowards.

50 gold coins dead, 100 gold coins alive, payable at the First Bank of Abella in Laketown (payment received upon delivery of head, ((tomb screenshot)), or the arrival of the breathing villain).

Not much RP, but quite funny video about peculiarities of the bandit hunting.

Oak Chronicles: Last fight of Lord Commander

Dear Citizens of Abella,

It is with a heavy heart and extreme grief that I share grave news with you. On March 31st, 1032, Laketown was attacked and infiltrated by a former ally. They opened the gates to the bandits, who pillaged, raped, and looted the city. In an act of extreme defiance, the traitor cut down the mighty Holy Oak.

Lord Commander Barton Schicktenwave led his knights against the bandits, 6 brave souls against an innumerable amount of defilers, who managed to successfully push the bandits out of Laketown, but the damage was done. Unbeknownst to the knights, Lord Barton sustained a terrible wound that slowly began to drain his life. He fought for several weeks while the knights tried to find a cure, but to no avail. He eventually succumbed to his wounds on April 20th, 1032.

As such, there will be many changes occurring at Laketown over the coming days. Captain Bismarck de Guilford (Lazerah/Alex#7130) will take over as Lord Commander of the Knight Order of the Holy Oak. Dame Freyah Michaelson (Kol#8639) has taken over diplomacy duties from Lady Meerah Nic Roibin.

We want to thank every one of our allies for every ounce of support they could muster. Friends, it has been our greatest pleasure serving you, and we hope to continue going strong towards the future.

Always your humble servant,

The Knights of the Holy Oak

Oak Chronicles: Something Ends, Something Begins

The city of Verna was founded in 1030 by small group of survivors – led by one of the first people on Abella, Dhollansa Stark. It grew and prospered, till one day Dhollansa mysteriously disappeared. Then Tashka Zelena, a peasant woman who served Dhollansa, suddenly usurped authority in her dirty hands and proclaimed herself the Shadow Queen. She led people to the south to fight on the side of the pigdogs during Great World War. Although many obeyed her out of fear, one of the Nothern lords, Nazeef The Teetotaler, Dhollansa's kinsman, found the strength to rebel and went to the service of Lord Barton together with his men. They became glorious knights of the Holy Oak and started fighting on the other side, proclaiming Nazeef as the rightful ruler of Verna.

In 1032, the war was won by the Coalition of Free People of Abella; for the most part, the pigdogs were hunted down and defeated. Although the victory had cost the life of Lord Barton, Lord Stark had better luck - after the Shadow Queen was expelled from the North, he went there and took the city of Verna back under his rule. In the ruins, he met his old friend Crixius "The Jester" Barefoot – a man of complicated destiny, too weird to live, and too rare to die. Even though Crixius's participation in the Great World War had been to betray both Shadow Queen and Lord Barton, for some reason Nazeef believed he wouldn’t do the same with the man Crixius was linked with by a common past. But life is feudal, and instead of helping with Verna's restoration, The Jester betrayed him, stole his gold and spent it to build his own city - Riva, the weird and soulless copy of Laketown. Moreover, Holy Oak scouts spotted Tjoerk Blaublut there - Crixius was the one who provided shelter to the most wanted (and most despicable) criminal in all of Abella.

Befallen by deep sorrow, Nazeef went to the mountains to find reason to continue his fight. This time, he was lucky once again, because he suddenly found his dear Dhollansa herself! The details of her disappearance and locating remain secret, but today they happily rule in Verna - or rather look after architectural and historical monument, spending their time in former Tashka's town hall, which became The Tavern of Broken Dreams - one of the most hospitable places of Abella. Verna became a Holy Oak vassal and the sacred sprout of the Holy Tree grew there.

This ends the story of Nazeef, but another story begins - a story which won’t end as long as both traitors are still alive.

Oak Chronicles: Fires of Hope

After the treacherous attack against Order's sacred tree, something Evil came into the world and people began to die by the thousands, getting covered in black marks. The mysterious disease was known as the Black Death, it wiped out whole villages and the kingdoms of Abella were ultimately helpless as the infection rapidly spread. However, some people for some reason were immune - they got together and built new cities on the ruins of the Old World.

As for the Order, after Barton's death four knights were sent to four world's edges to find a cure for the Black Death, but none of them made it back. Lord Commanders died one by one until authority has concentrated in hands of young sir Zorand Rahl - warfare engineer who destroyed Playhard castle in the old days. Since the village on the strategically important island to the south of Laketown was destroyed, it was decided to take this island under control - so rose the Free City of Oakenhold, managed by Lady Mayor Sunada Chishio.

Frustrated in their attempt to find a cure, surviving knights focused on helping other survivors - by the explicit order of Lord Mayor Hervard Berry of Laketown, the city opened it's gates to every survivor who needs a new home. All kinds of people from different parts of Abella came to make new lives under the protection of Holy Oak. Signal bonfires of new hope burn every night.
