The deity of chaos quietly tapped her fingers upon the cold, alien stone of her stolen throne, resting her face onto an open palm with the other. The battles for the pillars, the mortal deaths and the loss of many lives didn't phase her..much. A tinge of impatience adorned her visage as she sat within the realm of war, countless legions of soldiers under the Goddess of war's command going through portals to the other realms. Though this had been going for a while, some realms were far more resilient then others. It felt like nothing was happening in an infinite amount of time..
And then, progress.
Through two portals-chained down by violet locks were a figure of windy white, and a figure of pure sea blue. Both were tossed harshly onto the ground, their forms scraping against the rough stone and roughing up much like a porcelain floor against the skid mark of a shoe. They said nothing, and didn't even look anywhere but at the ground. A smile curled upon her face.
"Finally. I thought you would never find any of them. We can begin with the third phase with just the two, but I'd rather have the rest."
"That will take a bit more time, the other realms are far more..resistant to my...
The shockwave that spread through the world was not one of anger, or of rash action. It was methodical, prepared-planned far more in advance then anyone could have expected from the Maiden of Chaos. From the edges of Belinard to the distant shores of Bannesiel, all wondered in both fear and silent curiosity just what had been wrought upon this world.
For the past few Years, every so often a strange landmark would rise from the ground, in particular areas that seemed to carry no rhyme or reason, save for that they emboldened a theme of history within the lands they sprouted from. They seemed to appear after some great threat that had come and passed within the regions, or if a small incursion had been properly repelled from their lands. Regardless of how- these "Pillars" have risen, Twelve in all, across the landscape.
And now, they have been activated, their dark deeds coming full circle.
Beams of pure violet light now pierce the skies from each pillar, creating an unseen barrier over the plane of mortals that has had an immediate effect on those connected to the Divine. Terrible feelings have overcome them, of pain wrenching from their very form as if their souls separated from their bodies..and then a feeling of weakness for septs afterwards. Those not connected to...

While some of you may know who I am, others may not; so hellohihey I'm monomyth, let me introduce myself.
I'm a Creative Writing student attending a four-year university in New Jersey (where I live).
I may not have been on Event Team prior, but I have actual and realized experience DMing and writing for interactive-storytelling-settings.
I have some visions that I want to actualize during my time as ETL, but I'd also like to acknowledge that the system works as is.
I'm not going to reinvent the wheel with the team, but I would like to push it into the following directions;
1) More events that impact the world in a meaningful way, allowing for unforeseen repercussions that will make the continent appear living, 2) More random events (even fluff events) to make the world appear lived in, 3) Coordination with Build Team to make more cool things, 4) Encourage more events and recruit more DMs.
As always, if anyone has any questions, my PMs are always open-- monomyth#5803 on Discord.
If you have any suggestions on what you would like to see in Event Team, I'm...
