Dear all,
I hope this finds you well.

I pretty much missed the Conclave, what with being very young and not really paying attention at the time. Can anyone furnish me with information with regards to Albreeth, the leader of said?

Many thanks,

Was'nt that the meeting of all/most of the elves that everyone was saying would just turn into a discussion on how elves were better than everyone else?

Dear Marinus,
During the Race Wars an elf named Albreeth led a faction of elves who opposed the policy of Illianor, the High King of the Elves, because he didn't want to exterminate the younger races, and Albreeth and his faction, the Conclave, really wanted to, seeing it as the only way to ensure the survival of the elves. Both Illianor and Albreeth were (and in Albreeth's case still are, as far as we know) what we now call Elder Gazed, and it's possible that both thought they were doing what was necessary for the good of Erdreja, but it's also possible that Albreeth was (and is) simply being a colossal git.

Anyway, this was all going on inside the Hidden Court, so-called because it was convened in Taranaith, part of Murias, the Elder Elven City, that had been shifted into the void to allow the elves a safe place to meet away from the war. Albreeth challenged Illianor to a duel over his policy of winning the war rather than committing genocide, but Albreeth cheated and murdered him instead of going for an honourable victory (something he probably wouldn't have managed anyway).

Albreeth vanished before he could get his just-desserts, and his followers went with him.

I'm assuming you know how the race wars went, so I'll skip ahead.

Never giving up his plans on punishing the humans and younger races, Albreeth and the Conclave hastened the arrival of the Cataclysm of Water in 418 or so by disrupting a massive Imperial ritual, using linked circles, aimed at ending an Empire-wide drought. To their chagrin, they didn't manage to wipe out the younger races, but they did end the Empire.

They showed up again - I don't know when as I was not yet born - before the latest Cataclysm and caused untold awfulness. That untold awfulness is what I'm asking about, please, especially with regards to Albreeth.

All the best,
Lio'Ara
Queen of the May

Thank yo , I had a horrible feeling you were talking about something more recent happening.
I'll have to leave it to others who were about at the time to fill you in though. my apologies.

That's okay. And don't worry, if some of the elves get together and try to start a new Conclave I can practically guarantee that Taladael would stir himself to put on his crown and start killing them.

Is there a tranposition of Ilianor for Albreeth in your message to Marinus (starting Never giving up...)?

I don't know the names, but yes, the Conclave were a collective of ancient Elder Race who ritually attacked pretty much everywhere in the Heartlands (volcanoes in Orkneyjar, earthquake in Albion, the devastation at Prague...) around 1105. I believe they broke the Time Chambers on Lantia, at least in part causing time-related starvation across the Heartlands, and tried setting faction on faction.

I think that there were either 8 or 12 on the high council, some of whom were known to have been killed.

I'd thought the leader was a dwarf but may be wrong (a dwarf was certainly seen when the Catalysm of Water happened) The only comment I'm aware of regarding the leader (and I don't recognise the name) was that he was not known to have died. If it's the same one, he was last seen in Teutonia working with Calligar.

I suggest ittimin and Rath as good sources if Sheyna can't help.

Can't help more right now.

I may have gotten the pair of names mixed up - I'm very tired. Anyway, I think I sorted it now.

You touch on the point of my wanting to know, Cawd. It seems extremely possible, even likely, that the Albreeth that was killed was actually a Witchweed Albreeth clone, thanks to the stuff that Benedict Darkendale gave to the Conclave.

Myself and a few others (including Rath)are going to be doing a rite to find out. I think it's best if I know as much about him as possible before I go looking for him. Assuming Bliquis doesn't just discover he's actually dead and we've been worried about nothing. I really hope that's the case.

Lio'Ara,

I seem to recall hearing somebody talking about this on the last day of the Moot. I'll take a look through my notes and make sure you get whatever information I noted down.

Secondly, would you mind if I came and spoke to you about this, down at the Guild, on the Friday of the Fayre? I'll bring my notebook, and possibly a bottle of something tasty.

Ryn,
Thank you very much, and I don't mind at all. You should note that I don't drink alcohol, so don't bring any on my account.

How does one deputise Daolyth? Are you there in case there is a grumpy shortfall and he can't be found?

Lio'Ara,

I'm not quite sure, to be honest. I was going to put a mask on and be enigmatic. Oh, and take notes.
