A bit on short notice, but oh well.



The Dhi Qar Governorate is one of the poorest parts of an already conflict stricken Iraq, a mess of marshes, floodplains, and baking heat. It would otherwise escape all notice at all save by those who live there if not for one very important fact, it was the birthplace for much of modern western civilization.

One of the most historically important locations in the world, it possesses several ruins of ancient Sumer, the ruins picked at by academic research teams and black market profiteers alike. Of recent note is the discovery of a tomb buried deeper than the rest, discovered using old dowsing techniques, the location sold to UNTIL and already declared a World Heritage Site based on its estimated age, somewhere north of 10,000 years. Rumor states it as the tomb of Gilgamesh, from the epic itself, though such rumors are unsubstantiated.

More importantly, soon after the tomb was discovered, a concerted attack by DEMON was engaged to the site, and after initial radio contact from the site, things have fallen dark.

Now it is in heroic hands.

Reasons for your character to show up:

* UNTIL Liaison: You work for UNTIL. A recently discovered world heritage site simply vanishing from nowhere is shady as heck, especially from DEMON.

* Local Hero: Maybe you are an Iraqi hero who caught wind of the attack?

* Funded the Dig: Perhaps you funded the archaeological dig to find ancient secrets, and now these secrets are in jeapordy.

* Mystical Confluxes: If magical signatures are being read correctly, something is going down in southern Iraq at the dig. Something big. And old.

I am fine to do this event with as little as two people, and it will be run sort of as a dungeon crawl.

This sounds interesting, I have to read the Epic of Gilgamesh (might I add it is very interesting) for a Literature Class, though I believe the time has come and gone. What can you do?

Part 1:



The group encountered DEMON cultists atop of a mound where the archaeological dig was happening. Summoning circles were visible, and one accidentally summoned the wrong thing, spitting out a strange alien named Purple. The DEMON cultists said something abouit ensuring the correct domain of summoning before successfully summoning two creatures, a strange not-man who spoke with the very voice of desolation, and a strange man-headed lizard creature that vomited acid and could shrink its head into its scales to protect itself.

I'm terribly sorry about poofing like that! The game locked up and I had to crash the computer- which promptly decided UPDATES!!! would be the best thing to give me... ><



Also hunching scale monster is creepy and Mister Shrivels could really mess people up if they weren't well prepared!

It appears as if it's begun. I believe my time conversions were incorrect. I'm not experienced with converting time outside of the continental United States. The international dateline always finds a way to ruin my conversions. Of course, I could just be incompetent...

I would have loved to take part in this.

GOOD NEWS! You still have time! They haven't entered the burial site yet!

As nice as that would have been, it was late into the night over here in America and I had to go to sleep. I have classes in the morning and I can't miss those. Though perhaps there will be another time. :)
