What is Ascension and how is it achieved?  Some would say that it is a rare spiritually enlightened being who in past incarnations was an ordinary human, but who has undergone a series of spiritual transformations to become a non-corporeal entity on a higher plane of existence, without dying first.

The Grand Conjunction is upon us!  Every seven years there is a Grand Conjunction of the Spheres, where one of the three primary Spheres becomes dominant; it has now been seven years since the last Grand Conjunction and therefore it is time for a new one.  Dreadlord Araikas, one of the Lords of Fortunes Keep, has announced that he is actively seeking to ensure that the Evil Sphere becomes ascendant at this Grand Conjunction and has already taken steps to ensure this.  It has also been widely accepted that if the Evil Sphere becomes ascendant for a third time in a row then a Cataclysm will follow.

To accomplish his aims Dreadlord Araikas has declared that he seeks to awaken the Black Pharaoh.  The current Oracle and Voice of the Mystics within the Temple of Four Winds has spoken and declared “He who was Bound should be unbound and those put to sleep should be awoken”.  As a result the Temple of Four Winds has declared that they will sponsor a group to join Dreadlord Araikas in his task; the Dark Council of Darkhome has also decided to support this mission.

Halmadons Heights have declared a Crusade against Dreadlord Araikas and his followers (members of Darkhome and casters of the Evil Sphere); therefore adventurers should be prepared for any encounters with members of this Tower to be hostile.  In addition the Shadowsfall have declared a contract for the permanent death of Dreadlord Araikas and the loss of spirit strength on a number of other adventurers of Fortunes Keep.  There have also been recent indications that relations between our two Towers are deteriorating significantly, so interaction with members of the Shadowsfall should be taken with care.  The Lords of Fortunes Keep expect all adventurers to stick together as one people in times of adversity.

A call has gone out to the adventurers of Fortunes Keep to join this group and it is open to anyone from within the Valley, although it may better suit those of a darker disposition as those pure of heart may struggle to provide their full assistance.  To avoid any confusion that may exist, the Lords of Fortunes Keep have decreed that despite Dreadlord Araikas being currently resident within another Tower, he is still considered to be a Lord of Fortunes Keep.
