Arnaud de Montfort Esq 8 Arnaud's aim was to weaken the military capability and wealth of the church of light and their allies so they are less able to use force to project their religion, especially in regions outside their main sphere of control and lessen their grip on the western kingdom.

He spent six months travelling through the western kingdom meeting with greedy, selfish, evil or otherwise socially aberrant people of influence. During these meetings he shared an evil vision for the future of the kingdom, mentioning possibilities and discussing thoughts, convincing many.

To date (under six months) these discussions have lead to

  • Five revolts started with much loss of life.
  • Seven churches, fourteen abbeys, four monastic villages and many other church holdings being destroyed with the death of hundreds of clergy.
  • A significant (20%) reduction in troop numbers fighting the dark circle and likely to be available in the future due to withholding of troops.
  • A reduction (8%) in tax income for the kingdom, mainly for those who are supporters of the church due to 'bandit activity', 'natural disasters' and the like.
    It is known that Arnaud was somehow, if only by association, involved in these events and a warrant for his arrest has been posted within the western kingdom (not Cazala) by the unified church.

    9 Wrote & produced a satirical operetta at the MMHS Operahouse: which was a popular success, thanks to the unsubtle parodies of public figures. Unfortunately it displeased a certain judge (you can guess whom) ... so it only ran One night. The work was originally intended to be a play but [thanks to a futuristic adventure GMed by Jacqui, SF heavily stole from G&S] it became the "Mickey-do", set in the Fabulous East, a.k.a. Borovia. Only the character of Kri-Kri, the Lord high executioner, was modelled with permission of the original ...

    Mary-M 8 While Mary M was in Terranova, meeting with the Southern Continent halflings, she discovered that although they had highly ranked Healers they had lost all healing abilities above Rank 5. She undertook to re-teach them her Rank 6 & 7 abilities (instead of learning from the halflings as the rest of the party did). After she returned home she learned Rank 8 with the intention (and proviso) that she return and teach them resurrection, which she did. This was started on adventure and then followed up later with Mary M remaining there for 3 months.
    9 Mary M and Pennlucien were involved in some very odd and experimental healing to restore a party to life after all but they were turned into Wights by an un-life explosion. They worked out that although their fellow party members were undead they had never actually been dead, and through trial and error (and the use of a very big holy symbol) were able to force the un-life from their companions and restore them to normal. They had to contend with draining effects every time they touched their patients and the desire (of at least one Wight) not to be restored. All of this was on adventure.
