This image is quite large (actually, I made a larger version of the same, but I'm having trouble getting it to post), but here is an Arm gif I made, for your advertising pleasure:

The Negean Library

Knowledge is power, so the saying goes.  So it is perhaps unsurprising that we can trace some of the recent political upheavals in Tuluk back to a library of texts which has changed hands several times since its inception.



House Negean was a noble house of Tuluk until year 15 of the 22nd Age.  Their traditional area of expertise was in the keeping of Tuluk's history; they held to this ancient trust and, with time, expanded it to the study of all things, everywhere.



Correspondingly, the Negeans developed a large library of texts that still exists, which we refer to as the Negean Library.

In the year 1632 (Year 15 Age 22), in an agreement with the Tuluki Templarate, House Negean's nobility were conscripted into the ranks of the templarate and almost immediately put into training.  It is not known whether the Negeans resisted this change or embraced the executive power that came with it, but the House as it was known ceased to exist.

House Uaptal was granted the assets of former House Negean including, perhaps most importantly, the vast wealth of knowledge in its library.  The Uaptals had once been influential, but at this time they were less known for their economic clout and more for their mounts and breeding programs (to this day, many of the best mounts in Tuluk are descended from Uaptal stock).  For this reason, giving them the library may have - retrospectively - seemed like a strange choice.  But perhaps the library was undervalued.



It is even conceivable that some members of House Uaptal viewed its acquisition as a burden, an additional resource they had to watch over and maintain with no clear way to generate returns.



Still, it wasn't long before House Uaptal began to grow, often in substantial and unprecedented ways.  Pivoting off its control over animal husbandry, the House applied a number of unspoken economic and political tactics to grow its wealth and influence in the proceeding years.  This growth continued unabated, much to the befuddlement of the other Tuluki noble houses, eventually placing Uaptal at the third rank among the noble houses in the Tuluki Triumvirate at the peak of its power.  Perhaps the library was a credit, after all.



The year 1633 (Year 16, Age 22) marked a boiling point for the rising tensions between Uaptal, Winrothol, and Tenneshi.  Here, at a public event celebrating their good fortune, a member of the High Council of Uaptal was slain in front of onlookers by a shadow artist.  The next year, the Houses of Winrothol and Tenneshi banded together to eradicate Uaptal in an unprecedented utilization of shadow artistry, wherein they outfitted a heavily armed contingent to assault House Uaptal's Estate, slaying most that resided within.

Only crude accounts of the carnage are given.



All of Uaptal's surviving assets were divided between Winrothol, Tenneshi, and Kassigarh, but it is believed that the Templarate (and the Legion) have secured power of the Negean Library.





































(The suggestion is laughable, but there are whispered legends that suggest a young family member or aide was seen riding off on an unfathomably fast beast, escaping the assault and rescuing a single battered book from the destruction.)

This armor struck me as looking like Zalanthan noble armor:

Quote from: Poison Helpfile
Skellebain:
This poison comes primarily from fungus and mushrooms. With varying degrees of potency, it seems to have a negative effect upon the victim's mind, causing frightening, mind-numbing, hallucinations and even causing physical impairments if left to fester. Its effects are said to vary widely as the victim's body processes the poison.

This is actually my very very favorite image, like in forever.  It's a hooded durrit cloak, I think, and she is trying to hide while a Kadian crafter and a Fale noble fade a mudsexx scene.  Yep.

Not that I'm not guilty of being statuesque and rather dazzling myself, but...ah, Tuluk. You have such pretty, pretty people.
