Undercity RP

Unread post by Rain » Fri Jul 19, 2019 4:03 am

Within the Undercity temple, Batibat would sit upon her throne pondering in thought of the task ahead.

"It will take much time and effort to bring this place back to it's former glory. For now it would be best we survey the city area as best we can and see what the current damages are as well as finding ways to pacify and control the many hostile undead that plague this place. From what I have seen myself the area seems riddled with the tormented souls of the dead, fury filled wights, horrific helmed horrors and many more. But of course these are only the beginnings of our challenges to restore order here and bring tranquility to the many misguided souls who wander these city streets."

Baitbat looks to the small party of skeleton before her and Julius within the temple waving a hand motion directing them to rise from their kneel.

"The the rest of you to fan out and search the city as best you can. I want an moderate report of what we are looking at in terms of damages to walls and living spaces for now as well as an estimate to the number of hostile forces that still walk the streets of the city."

Batibat gives the order to the undead under her command then looking to Julius next to her with a heavy sigh.

"Do you think it's even possible, Julius? "Surely you, the Consort of All-Seeing Eyes would have an accurate judgement of the tasks ahead."

Julius leans on his staff, a look of contemplation on his face as he watches the undead depart.

"It is within the realm of possibility, my dear friend. However, it will require great effort on both of our parts if we are to see this through to fruition. Perhaps it is time to reach out to other like-minded individuals who seek sanctuary and the freedom to practice their crafts without ridicule or judgement from the society and city above."

Batibat nods the the wisdom given to her thinking a moment with a rub of her chin.

"Then that is what we shall do. And I have an idea where it is, that we will find some. . ."

She looks back to Julius next to her with a smile.

"Time to set things into motion. . ."

Batibat and Julius soon begin to set up for their departure to the surface once again. As they walk towards the temple doors a few undead follow their step and hold the door open for them to leave. Once outside the two turn and bask at the glorious sight of their new beginning, looking upon the temple and nodding to each-other in approval. A handful of undead make their way out from the temple within as they leave, soon taking positions nearby the exterior temple door in it's defense as the two make their way from the darkness of the necropolis to the light of the surface once again.

The doors to the Temple of All-Seeing Eyes open with creek as a small band of undead stride in ahead of High Lady Batibat. As Batibat enters the temple behind the undead, two figures would follow in her step trailing behind her in their entry. As they enter the room the High Exarch Julius Baptiste would be awaiting their arrival as the Batibat and the two men walk forward and Batibat takes a seat amongst her throne next to the High Exarch and exchanging introductions. . .

The meeting starts in ernest as everyone gets into place. Words are shared of varying topics of magic, information, rumors and trade as the four of them speak promptly of the goals and obstacles the temple faces as of late. A few solutions are thrown into the chat with those within nodding their head in agreement to some and disagreement to others. . .

Non the less the meeting last for a few hours before coming to an end. As the High Lady Batibat and the High Exarch escort the two men out of the city leaving Batibat's undead to guard the place in blissful silence once more.

A harrowing echo emits from within the Temple of All-Seeing Eyes giving off a terrifying drone of moans and whails that shroud over the Under-city before it. Within the dark hours of the night above a cryptic meeting is taking place below the soils.

Spells are chanted. . .

Whispered discussions are brought forth . . .

And deals are made. . .

The door to the Temple of All-Seeing Eyes opens promptly as Batibat exits from the temple followed by 3 undead skeletal giants and a
dreaded undead mummy. She turns looking to her party quite content with her choices, as today she would find the time to set out and clear some of the undead and ghost not under her allegiance wandering the city streets.

She and her undead survey the city in a stalwart march brutally bashing and crushing any undead or ghostly figure that would dare come forth to combat them. Time and time again the undead knights, warriors and magi came forth to face them. Even outnumbered Batibat and her large skeletal colossi took them down with no remorse, while sweeping the streets of the city from the disobedient undead as best they could.

After a job well done, Batibat commands her 3 skeletal colossi and her mummy lord to gather the remains of some of the undead knights they have slain previously and drag them back to the temple in their return. Her 3 skeletal colossi hold 1 bundle of skeleton knight remains each, her mummy lord another remain, and she herself scoops up some boney remains bringing the 5 undead knight remains back to the temple.

The moans of the undead begin to chime within the many avenues of the Undercity once again as the dead walk upon the streets in an eerie song of the damned. The song echos within the cavernous walls in symphony with the hums and chants of prayer and magic conducting the orchestra of flesh and bone. Within the city much is currently being done as a-many ghouls and ghast litter the streets in stride to work. A few dozen or so would file out in all corners of the city doing simple task such as picking up rubble and hauling it elsewhere others seeming to be clearing out old abandon buildings of broken or damage decoratives and various ruined furniture pieces. A small hin would seem to walk along with the ghoul workers shouting orders and giving guidance as they haul all manner of objects, bits and bobbles from one place to another. The work flows all across the city as she and a few skeleton archers make rounds all day and night conducting the ever-flowing workforce of undead that now perform and progress within the city walls. . .

Within the last ten-day the area of the Undercity would seem alot more quiet then usual. The previous sounds of construction and labor that echoed throughout the city would be null and void. The city as lively as it was within the past few weeks has returned to it's previous silence and the streets that were once filled with all manner of undead had lost their activity. . .

The city was silent until the smoothing sound of a soft church bell rang emitting a calming chime around the Undercity tonight. The bell's rythum was slow and soft but as it rang did the voices of the dead moan and whail in symphony to it's chime.

The air around the temple grew cold and thin and the atmosphere gave off an aura of despair as the sound of a sword against flesh rang across the city. . .

Today was a day of mourning for the dead and rejoicing for the living as both in victory and defeat a battle was won and another lost.

The bells of the church signaled the shepherded call of the dead as the head of a once master of death and undeath was raised high for all too see.


"Let it be known this day. . . That she who has given us a great beginning has met her end by the hands of the faithful of the All-Seeing Eye. She was couragous, powerful, and truely a gifted of the art... and for that she shall be remembered for many years to come in this city. While she may have been slain a with hatred and vengeance in her heart she will live on and continue onward to walk her maze into the after-life. . . But she was stripped of that chance recently and chained by collar and leash to him who has previously received her trust and faith in his service. Let it be known that her sacrifice shall not be in vain and that one day she shall see the gates of Althama in the sky's above I Batibat Kok-Lir Kasdeya swear it to be so."

"Let us have a moment of silence for her beginning and her end. . ."
"For we are those who witness."
"For we are those who judge."
"For we are those who die."
With heads bowed low and the hums of the song of seekers chanted in choir did they sing.


As the head of the Necromancer known as Gywen sat upon a pedestal for all to witness.

The streets of the Undercity had recently been disturbed, the torn and shredded remains of a few undead servants littering the ground. Whatever dead eyes lurking in the shadows would have been witness to a sword-wielding, silver-haired woman and a stout shape-shifting man finding their way beyond the defunct sewer system and into the deepest bowels of Baldur's Gate. Whether it was an accidental or deliberate intrusion within the lost ruins was uncertain and their stay was short-lived, as they perhaps wanted to avoid throwing too large a rock at the hornet nest.

The under-city in it's entirely would still seem quiet only until recently as a disturbance had riled up the dead in the area, the only traces of evidence left being the corpses of the servants of undeath itself. The disturbance turned the place from peaceful to chaotic within a manner of hours as a few of the priest from the Temple deep within the city fan out to try to quell the storm of the disturbed and restore what had been broken.

After a few hours of rehabilitation and restoration the temple bell rings and the attention of the-many is brought to it, as the members of the temple make their way back into it's domain as a vile magic is soon chanted within it's halls the church bell slowly comes to a halt. . .

Within the church a vile magic takes place as dark energy surrounds the temple and an aura of death and decay forms around the church once again. Soon the chanting stops and with it's silence to the dead beckon forward ever so slowly towards the temple grounds.

A cry of pain rings from within the temple as the sound steel upon flesh emits from within it's halls. The sound of steel puncturing flesh chimes aligns with the screams of pain as blood fills the temple floor. . .

The magic finally successfully cast. . .

And with it, the ritual has been complete. . .

As the severed hand falls into the floor, and bone takes it's place. . .

* In recent times, the mage Angbaal did not point the nose at the glow of the day.

The very few people who know about the existence of the undercity, would have seen him reanimating undeads.

Strange that he has at hand this raw material, in the form of a corpse. Who can find out where he could find them?

The feverish complexion, almost frenzied, he would spend most of his time, day and night, so tempting that this expression has a meaning below. *
