Skotos Forums Closing: September 30

The Skotos Forums are officially closing on September 30, 2020. They will go read-only on that date, and will be removed entirely sometime afterward.

We encourage the games that spun off of Skotos to create new discussion mediums of their own, and some have already done so. But the centralized discussions for Skotos will soon be a thing of the past (just as the centralized Skotos site is).

We've also posted a goodbye message to the community on our main page, which you can find here:

  • The Encounter of Zaedra

    Twelfth Day of the Fourth Moon,
    Eighteenth Year of Recent Awakenings

    In accordance with the will of Her Majesty, and in upholding the duties charged to me as a Senior Chronicler, I hereby submit an account of
    The Encounter of Zaedra.

    On the Twenty-Third Day of the Second Moon, Denizens of the Outer Bailey had their mid-bridge socializing cut short due to an unexpected encounter.

    Within the present group included seras Elora and Lexiana, and ser Seic. The group was conversing when the sudden arrival of Zaedra caused them to halt their discussion. The tall, exotic dark-fae assassin silently appeared from the shadows clad in a robe with boots, as well as a whip of nine tails. Her uniquely gray toned skin seemed to fluctuate depth and tone in the light, shifting from pale to dark, stark to soft, as a shadow might. Silky, silvery-white hair gracefully brushed over her pointed ears as she sauntered further into the bridge. This caused an abrupt panic from sera Elora, who was able to depart the area to toot for an Army officer when sera Lexiana, who noticed the panic, sent her to get a scroll.

    At the retreat of sera Elora, Zaedra stated how she believed that denizens are dumb and often underestimate her. Serjeant Marcellius, who arrived at the sound of Elora's duckcall, asked Zaedra about the nature of her trip in which she replied that she was bored. She then traveled closer to ser Seic, and began to place her hands upon him as she directed her attention to the new guest. During their interaction, she questioned his intelligence by asking if he were smarter than the average bear.

    He replied that he believed he was before she shifted the discussion to chess. At this time, Serjeant Marcellius demanded she let the new guest be free. Enthralled in the attention of the dark-fae assassin, ser Seic replied for Zaedra stating he was free to move if he wished to. She continued to glide her hands through ser Seic's hair in defiance so the Serjeant added to his request that she leave.

    Zaedra replied to that request stating that she should perhaps visit the Inner Bailey then. Afore the Serjeant had time to disagree she was gone in a blink of the eye. He departed the bridge to enter the Inner and sure enough, she had been within the Great Hall. As soon as Serjeant Marcellius entered, she fled again, returning to the bridge. Once again, he departed his location to find the dark-fae assassin who was back on the bridge.

    When he reached the bridge she left anew and the two continued a game of cat and mouse throughout the Inner and Outer. On her final disappearance, she did not return, but instead sent the Serjeant a token of appreciation for participating in her game. A unique, long-stemmed rose woven from the shadows. It included ethereal petals that seemed to shift like black smoke. On the rose glittered in purple words were, ‘You Tried’.

    This chronicle will be subject to changes and corrections, as I humbly ask that the readers indicate to me through their discretion any falsehoods I may have mistakenly communicated. It is by means of the conservation of the Past that we continue to serve Her Majesty and give substance to those that follow.

    In service to Her Majesty Queen Vivienne, the Office of the Chronicler, and the Denizenry of our Gracious Queen's Realm,
