Orb of Venom The Actually Official Scrolls of Lore Fanfiction: As Was Foretold

Squatting like the ripe carcass of a toad on the shores of once-gleaming Lake Knostaldia, mighty Sol, the city of ten thousand cesspits has fallen upon hard times.

Whatever good old days it might have known are long since passed. Where and when the decline began is a matter of occasional, half-hearted speculation. Some say it was the death of Good Lord Nyorloth at the hands of Bluecoat assassins. Others say that subsequent to the Great War the city was overcome with a suffocating apathy that would become its undoing. It is certain, however, that the steady deterioration came to a head with the coronation of the Slow King Polk.

Words fail to describe the King Polk's reign of terror. First came the Purge of the Senates, where dozens of the city's leading politicians were slaughtered. Then came the Bloodletting, and countless noble and aristocratic families were wiped out. Protests were crushed without mercy and resistance was met with the full force of the Palace Guard. A force of secret police was established, answerable only to the King.

At last, when he stood alone atop a mountain of bodies, the only civil and military authority left in the city, the Slow King settled down to enjoy his sovereignty. The austere Castle Wretkhan, proud and historic domicile of generations of past monarchs, was transfigured under the Slow Polk's twisted hand into a horrifying temple to carnality. No vice, no desire, no deranged passion was denied the unchallenged ruler of Sol, who assembled about himself a band of charlatans, whores and sycophants in sick mockery of the royal court and nobility he had deposed.

But it is a fact of human indefatigability that no tyrant, however cruel and powerful, can abuse his rule for long without stirring the wrath of his subjects. A small but determined band of revolutionaries gather in the shadows of fallen Sol, plotting the end of Polk's life and the restoration of Sol's tarnished glory.

And with them our story begins.

Orb of Venom

This is the Original Scrolls of Lore fanfiction. Before now, the story has existed only in a crappy first draft shared with only a few individuals, but with upstart whippersnappers such as certain unnamed parties getting IDEAS, I have been roused to action! The Allegory's time has come!

You will see a great many familiar faces over the course of this story.

Are you gonna make it personnal and have me as a bad guy or will it be all fine?

And I think we should get along. Your fanfic is serious and grim, mine is joyful and funny. We shouldn't be in competition. Alternate universes man, alternate universes.

I'm liking it, but wouldn't the king be Warlock or one of the other admins?

There is a madness in my method, but rest assured it is methodical.

Fair enough. I suppose that SPK's repeated rule-breaking and refusal to acknowledge bans makes his status perversely appropriate.

Thanks!

The story actually DOES have a direction - I'm just turning on the hard-mode by letting you clowns decide how we get there...
