    When Lee 'Negated' Dokken, Leader of the Esoteric Order of Dagon, announced here that he would not be so available to cause chaos on Monria for a while (are we sad? no), he said he put his associate in charge of "general mischief-making on the moon" -- that would be Immortal Yidhra DreamWitch. She played a role in the previous battle with the Yogs where Negated had claimed another victory due to low global/hof count.

    Apparently, Yidhra has taken this 'step in and take charge' role quite seriously, but I don't think Negated is going to appreciate the degree to which she has elevated her mischief-making. Yidhra telepathically sent me a message that a new evil was soon to inhabit Monria (just what we need), and would involve dark magic and witchcraft. I thought only the Cultists had the dark magic grimoire. I have been reading about this grimoire in the ancient journal discovered in the hidden compartment of the file cabinet recovered from the Mining Camp, but have yet to set my eyes upon it.

    Before ending the telepathic message, Yidhra said -- Cultus autem Golgotha --- I was clueless until I figured out that the language was Latin and the words meant -- Cult of the Skull. I did a bit more research and discovered that this cult is also known as -- Chesuncook Witch Coven -- a group of antagonistic witches and warlocks who worship the Outer God Shub-Niggurath with a link to Yog-Sothoth since the two are mates.

    The Cult of the Skull society has taken up residence on Monria and seemingly primed to make it even more challenging for us to control the Yogs. Leshrac, the cult's Leader, and Lady Demonia, are the cult's purveyors of darkness and magic, and adept at keeping the unwanted suspended between mystery and madness. They are a true life couple who enjoy stirring the cobwebs in the caves --- forgive my wandering mind at this point, but it makes me think of marriage and murder since they have such a desire for evil and darkness.

    Who the hell knows what they have up their sleeves, but I am sure it's not going to be pretty. They seem to be a very secretive society and don't allow just any outsiders to join them. Only those who are willing to give up their freedoms and lives are considered for membership in the coven. I noticed that even though Yidhra is a witch, she is not a member of the Cult of the Skull.

    If all that isn't enough, I also learned that they hold ceremonies in a subterranean cavern where they practice the cult's dark magic and praise Shub-Niggurath's name. Oh, did I forget to mention that Shub-Niggurath and Yog-Sothoth are Cthulhu's grandparents? :rolleyes

    All of this brings back to mind once again the encrypted lettering on the back of the file cabinet recovered from the Mining Camp in January 2016 -- The Moon Shall Rise -- I think we're beginning to see more of this. My secondary thought is -- I wonder how the Esoteric Order of Dagon and the Cult of the Skull will get along. Yidhra DreamWitch seems to be in the middle of it all and perhaps the catalyst for the escalation of evil, but will these two evil factions combine efforts, or try to outdo each other?

    My take on this? ... I think we're about to experience some smack talk. :D

    Can't wait to see how this Yog battle plays out. :jumpclap

    I'll give them a little credit and say 825. The Monrians have grown a little more powerful since the previous battle against the yogs, but it gave me time to assess them. This battle should be interesting.

    For some reason, people don't comment too often about storyline, so thank you very much for that. What some may not realize is that I'm using the mid-month events to introduce new Cthulhu-related characters and factions to expand our Moon theme. Cthulhu's family tree is quite complex, and when I am inspired by those truly interested in taking up a role beyond being an awesome community member, the creative part of my purple matter kicks in and individuals, like yourself, Negated, Leshrac and Lady D will find themselves weaved into the fabric of our official Monria storyline books.

    What I appreciate most, is that each of you have collaborated with me so that the role-playing that is done and presented publicly doesn't overlap or interfere with what our official storyline is and where we are evolving the Moon with it. It's key that there is no confusion because Cthulhu lore is difficult enough to follow as it is, which is why I'm introducing it at the pace I am so that it has more of a familiar rather than strange feel to it.

    We (Pinthas and I) have an outline and agenda for revealing our official storyline in our books. It's not always easy finding the time to sit and write for hours when there's such a demand on your time. However, I have been working on book 4 that will conclude the Kipling/Core connection, but open up a host of other mysteries that will spawn from this segment of the storyline and involve more members of our community.

    Our goal is to gravitate toward more role-playing and drawing in our community members as part of Monria's evolving history. We have plans for where we are taking Monria and it will all make more sense as you see it unfold. Ant is inspired by the storyline, and very much focused on blending storyline and the environment in certain ways, so we will see that unfold as we evolve and new updates are released. It's not a fast process because we aren't about adding content that captures your attention for two minutes and then doesn't have a lasting connection to anything.

    It has been mentioned a few times now that Ant is very much about being measured and calculated with regard to implementing development that is highly purposeful. It all has to have meaning and not be fragmented. He and I as a team (him behind the scenes and me more on the front lines) are quite connected and on the same page when it comes to remaining focused on working with the community to deliver the best possible Monria experience. While we don't comment as much on your Suggestions or ideas (something may already be in the works), we do pay close attention to them and latch on to those that have potential in future releases, just like we did with this last release.

    Sorry for getting a bit windy there, but when I feel that perhaps the community may not fully understand where we're going with storyline, I will take an open door opportunity to expand a little bit ... ok, maybe a lot this time. :D

    BTW ... we love that some of you are presenting your own stories. :aok
