Ascension of the Alarcon

Meanwhile...

While events in the Otherworld are taking place, AmadonCC begins preparing for the Dragon Council meeting. After her agreement with the Blue Sire, she comes to realize that she is in a bad situation. By supporting his plan for the complete withdrawal of the Dragons, herself, Kardak, and Kurgen will have to leave as well. Unable to accept this, AmadonCC begins trying to find a way out of her situation. AmadonCC goes through a few contacts, finding out if they have anything they want said at the Council. Afterwards, she meets up with her Grandfather and they go to the Council. AmadonCC tries to follow the rules of the Council, but lacking the knowledge and understand of a Dragon, she quickly realizes that her role there cannot be met. She sees herself as a half-blood, not just a dragon. She manages to thoroughly offend the Council and the Blue Sire. She leaves the Council angry and frustrated. She knows her Grandfather is upset with her and decides it is time the half bloods move on. They have worn out their welcome. She tells Myradiel to get everyone ready to move and teleports to Vinswold. It is there she realizes the full consequences of her error with the Blue Sire. Vinswold is leveled. The castle ruins are littered with the corpses of her beloved Rakathan friends. She teleports to the village to find it leveled as well and among the corpses of the villagers is the little boy Amadon has grown to love so much. She can’t let this stand. She has to fix this. AmadonCC makes contact with Amadon. Amadon quickly realizes she needs Alarca’s help. Alarca and Amadon cast a ritual that creates an alternate timeline, allowing AmadonCC to redo the Council meeting. AmadonCC tries to spend more time gathering information and preparing for the Council meeting. AmadonCC heads to the Council meeting a little more confident, but still unsure exactly what she is doing…and it shows. She once again manages to offend the Council. This time, when she leaves, she goes directly to Vinswold. She is visibly relieved when she arrives and the castle is still standing. She goes to the parlour to find the Blue Sire in kobold form sitting in a chair. She is so angry she can barely keep her composure. She asks if she can sit. He points out it is her place. She offers him a drink, which he declines. When hers arrives she tells the keeper to make sure her “guests” downstairs stay down there no matter what they hear upstairs. She turns her attention back to the Blue Sire and they have a relatively friendly chat. By the end of it, Amadon is more composed and realizes some of the mistakes she made. Still, she is tired of puppet strings, Dragons, Gods, Syrwyn, she doesn’t care who they are from. She is sick and tired of puppet strings. Her and the Blue Sire reach some common ground and he explains how he expects her to fix her mistakes. She waits for her guest to leave and orders another drink for herself…
