Massacre of Fleury
Attack of the Undead Hoards
"Kayan, take the students and go hide in the basement. I'll send for you when its safe out there. I love you... may we see each other again, in this life or the next."
PreludeNo one saw the attack coming. It had only been 16 years since the appearance of magic, and while people slowly started to wrap their minds around it, its true potential and destructive power still remained relatively unknown. The Massacre of Fleury changed all of that.
Lead by a mysterious and cruel man, the Black Skull, a hoard of undead rose from the ground to attack the town. The raid was of unheard violence. The dead clawed their way up the ramparts, their hungry hands and soulless bodies taking the town like an unstoppable wave. All who fell on their path perished, swallowed by the unstopping and growing mass of decaying bodies.
MassacreFor a while, all seemed desperate. The City Guards seemed unable to stop the tides of undead, and citizens with expertise in arms united to help defend their home and families. Some magic casters united, and managed to protect some parts of the city, but slowly their numbers dwindled, and each fallen friend would rise once more as a foe.
OutcomeAbelard Sattar, founder of the Abelard School of Eloquence and Magic, devised a plan with a few of his strongest students to put an end to the attack. He was amongst the most familiar with magic in the whole town, and new that such an army had to have a leader. So, he and his students made their way past the enemy lines to slay the serpent's head, once and for all.
Abelard eventually succeeded, at the end of a duel that seem to last for hours. He had suffered many wounds, and would eventually succumb from them. But as his last spell slew the Black Skull, his army fell to the floor, and what was left of the city was saved.
