Re: The Xiomeran Chronicles

(Joint post with Eiria) Alice Lancaster sat in her office, holding her head in her hands. She couldn't sleep, not while her brother insisted on staying at the hospital for when Jake gets out of surgery. She then got an idea on what to do. She used her laptop to find a certain phone number for a cer...

Re: The Xiomeran Chronicles

(Joint post with Lauchenoiria ) Imperial Attendant Tlalli, the personal assistant to the Empress Yauhmi, had been busier than normal, even with the duties normally falling upon the head of an incoming ruler and the transition to a new government. This would be the second call to a head of state in ...

Re: The Xiomeran Chronicles

(Joint post with Shen) Imperial Attendant Tlalli looked through the special, encrypted database, retained on special servers accessible only on the Golden Chamber's internal network, for a number. When she found it, she hummed to herself softly. Here we go, she thought, dialing the number on the eq...

Re: The Xiomeran Chronicles

(Joint post with Lauchenoiria) President Arnott was somewhat nervous about the call she had to make. Though she, personally, had remained rather netural in the Xiomeran election until the final days when it became clear who would win, she knew that some of the Council had been engaged in rather... ...

Re: Requiem for a Tyrant, Fight for a Throne

Palace of Flowers One hour after the Great Selection While a formal coronation still needed to be done in accordance with Xiomeran law, Yauhmi saw no reason to wait to use the Throne Room.

Re: Requiem for a Tyrant, Fight for a Throne

Huēyi Teōcalli The final day of the Great Selection began much the same as every other day, albeit a bit more hectic. Lobbyists and campaigners for Yauhmi and Tepilcayotl scurried around the floor of the temple, engaged in last-minute scrambling for votes, lobbying the voters of the council of expe...

Re: Requiem for a Tyrant, Fight for a Throne

(Joint RP with Shen) The Cauhloc "I do not have the votes." That simple statement, although uttered calmly, had the effect of a slashing knife. Tepilcayotl eyed the latest reports from his lobbyists and campaigners with his eyebrows furrowed. "Damn Xocolcōza and his schemes. He has flooded so much ...

Willis also fared well, counteracting the wind with her own weight effectively and making it to the next level as well. Xiyāōtl, however, struggled a bit with the onslaught of wind.

Requiem for a Tyrant, Fight for a Throne

Tlālacuetztla, the capital of Xiomera, was normally an incredibly bustling and crowded city, full of frenetic activity. But on the 12th of October, beginning at 8:30 am, the greatest metropolis in the entire Empire came to an eerily silent halt. Cities across Xiomera were experiencing the same pheno...
