On Thursday, December 22nd at 8:00 PM EST, the investigation into Dom’s whereabouts will be concluded.
On Thursday, December 8th at 8:00 PM EST, meet at Castle Blackthorn for a brief announcement from Heckles the Jester.
Note: This event will be very brief, and is only to introduce a 2-week long self-paced investigation style event. There will not be any combat.
The following is an excerpt from an obscure, old book titled “Transdimensional Perception Through Sensory Interaction: Thoughts and Theories” by an unnamed scholar; a footnote relegated to an unimportant chapter near the back of the book.
“…and of course there are the old stories and jokes about the curious intelligence of many breeds of canine. Is it possible, perhaps, that a dog possesses a separate faculty altogether through which it perceives its surroundings, and other dogs? It is most unlikely, but this hypothesis would be consistent with recent research. For example, why does a dog chase its tail? Why does it bury bones? Why do dogs greet each other by sniffing each other’s posteriors? These are, of course, all questions which zoologists have answered, at least to their own satisfaction, yet this behavior may be better explained through transdimensional communication. A dog, of course, cannot speak. Thus any forms of communication must occur on a different plane.
The “K9″ dimension, as I have dubbed it, would accomplish precisely that. However, the implications of such a hypothesis extend well beyond such seemingly trivial matters as why dogs consume their own bodily waste. Indeed, if such a K9 dimension exists, it must follow that lifeforms native to it must also exist; that it must possess a form of some kind, and that Sosarian dogs, whether fully realized in the dimension or not, must at least be somehow connected to it in order to facilitate communication. Of course, being that this concerns dogs, this subject is of little importance, and it is highly doubtful that such a dimension truly exists precisely as described. Nevertheless, some form of transdimensional communication must be at play.”
On Thursday, June 30th at 8:00 PM EST, meet at Castle Blackthorn.
Event Summary: The guards gathered at Castle Blackthorn, where they were met by Magister Rainard. Rainard explained the appearance of a magical anomaly in the desert of compassion, a phenomenon that, much like the weather, comes and goes, but could have unpredictable results. He tasked the guards with watching the anomaly until it had passed. When the guards found it, huge angry dogs began pouring out of it. The guards managed to fend off the dogs until none other than Dom the Cat, who had disappeared into a mysterious rifts several weeks earlier, appeared before them! This begs the question, just what had that cat done in his two-week transdimensional quest?
On Thursday, June 16th at 8:00 PM EST, meet at Castle Blackthorn.
Event Summary: The guards showed up at the castle only to find it had been Heckles, Lord Blackthorn’s jester, that had called them. Heckles was distraught because his mischievous cat Dom had gone missing, and was thought to be in Blackthorn’s Dungeon. The guard quickly rushed to the dungeon and immediately found Dom, but the cunning cat eluded them, leading them deeper into a dungeon where they faced off with a major infestation of dragons and huge rodents. After chasing after Dom to the southern-most room in the dungeon, the fiendish feline began digging around in the trash, uncovering a strange magical anomaly that soon grew into an unstable rift. After the guards fended off the monstrosities of the dungeon, three huge, angry dogs came from through the rift. While the guard was attempting to put them down, Dom jumped into the rift, and it closed behind him. Afterwards, the guard returned to the castle to break the bad news to Heckles, who swore he would not give up the search for his cat.
