Charo Vaeyl is next called to the stand to face charges of treason and attempted murder. Just then, the roof collapses under the weight of the ever-breeding bloodvelds from the third floor which gives Charo and the others time to flee.

- 22nd of March '13. Charo Vaeyl is captured by Grey and brought to the Slayer Tower where Olrun orders him locked in a hanging cage until she decides what to do with him. Two mercenaries hired by the Varré and equipped with special crossbow bolts made of blisterwood and salve crystals are sent to Castle Draculea under the pretense of speaking with the second-in-command of the Holy Crusaders whom is staying with Alucard.

There is now cause for panic as the blood supply runs lower and lower. “During the past week, a plague has ravaged the ghettos of Meiyerditch, leaving nearly one-half of the human population dead.

- 9th of July '13: The 'Toffee Farm', a small blood farm of 80 humans/elves, has been opened in secret, and known only to the Foryx Coven and for the benefit of the Foryx Coven alone. They've also loosed a rumour in the West that might draw humans to the farm, expecting fun and joy; however, it is just a ploy to ensnare more cattle for the farm itself.
- 11th of July '13: The first meeting of the Council of Covens is conducted at the Tower, and the priority is to discuss recent events.
- 12th of August '13: The Nourom Coven is disbanded. The Mine and Burgh are transfered to Nathaniel Nourom and Marvin Tarro-Nourom.
- Taralani Nourom is removed from the Council of Covens, whether by self-resignation, or if she was forced out of her position, the cause remains unkown.
- 13th of August '13: Once word of the Nourom's disbandment reached the Foryx, Lothorian set about a trip to the south. He retakes ownership over Burgh De Rott during after lengthy conversation with Marvin Tarro-Nourom regarding his family. This was done, however, by force, and not to Marvin's delight.
- 16th of August '13: A fair number of vyrelings, of Foryx lineage, have now occupied Burgh de Rotte, working hand-in-hand with some of the juvinate and juvenile work force they brought with them in order to fortifiy the city against a possible seige. Likewise, Canifis is also undergoing similar fortification at the hands of the werewolves, being headed by Governor Rael Foryx.

- 20th of August '13: A horde of Zamorakian demons has been given use of Viggora's Folly (the Slayer Tower) by Lothorian's permission. In exchange, he and Adrijana would be given a total of ten fit, breeding humans per month.

These he distributed to Rosemarie Foryx and James Mysts to serve, once they'd grown, as guardian-creatures of the Southern Coast.
- 22nd of Sepetember '13: The Foryx Coven evicts Faeyrin Azazel from Viggora's Folly, as she was the last remaining member of Zarakoth's warband and they had no use for her.

Adrijana Vaeyl is currently the only inhabitant of the tower, aside the numerous creatures within.

- Canifis once more flies the banners of the Varré.
- 25th of October '13: Klaus Nourom and Olrun Varré, accompanied by their Vyreling son, Klaus Viktor Varré, meet with Lothorian and Rosemarie Foryx. This meeting is inconclusive, with Klaus smashing in Lothorian's face, but it is clear that both sides are willing to reason with the other.
- 26th of October '13: The above mentioned reconvene, and it is agreed that they will attempt to remain neutral.
- Klaus forgives Lothorian's aid to the Draculea, saying he was but a tool in Alucard's plan. Lothorian agrees not to intervene if Klaus attempts to destroy Alucard or the Draculea.
- Olrun makes it clear she wishes Burgh de Rott return to the Varré, it having previously been goverened by the Nourom, who were sworn to her.
- 28th of October '13: Klaus Nourom places a hefty bounty on the head of Alucard Draculea, one which would urge most of the less loyal of Alucard's number to betray him, consisting of free alcohol, blood, and political opportunities - maybe even a manor house or Alucard's castle.
- Through this, Klaus' reckless lust for vengeance is made clear.
- 31st of October '13: Having dismantled their temporary warehouse and moved all of its contents to a new facility in Burgh de Rott, the Foryx Coven has evacuated its small, elite juvinate staff prior posted at Barrow's Town. The cause for this is unknown, but most assume that Lord Foryx ordered such due to the recent disturbance at the tombs. For a short period of time, a malevolent presence had been lifted from the cairns as though the entities within had vanished entirely; it returned soon after with an air of ambiguity, perhaps foreshadowing future events coming to its location.
- These events left the land open for claim, though perhaps at a future deadly cost.
- 18th of November '13: The Varré nobles meet with the Mallavian Coven who request a peace treaty to unify unify the covens.
- The Mallavian's inform Lord Klaus that they have set a bounty on a person called Klios, and so Klaus sends Netalia to fetch Klios.
- Klaus and Olrun place their son Maxamilian as overseer of Viggora's folly.
- 24th of November '13: Klaus meets with Lothorian Foryx and informs Olrun that he has proposed a political marriage between Maxamillian Varré and Rose Foryx.
- 30th of November '13: The Raveador Coven appears.
- 7th of December '13: Cut-Praven assassins along with a fair amount of allies attack Burgh De' Rott, resulting in the assassins falling back after sustaining injuries and casualties from the Vyre forces. The town and the Vyre forces themselves have sustained injuries, whilst the condition of Burgh De Rott remained relatively unchanged, retaining its re-constructed features.
- 10th of December to January '13-'14: The secretive project undertaken in the Haunted Woods by the Foryx has finally been finished, and more guards have been moved to the location to keep said secret... secret.
- Sometime later in December '13: The noble houses of Varre, Mallavian, and Raveador seem to have slunk into isolation.
- 1st of January '14: House Vaeyl resurfaces in Morytania, now under the leadership of Senen Vaeyl who rose to power after the late Charo Vaeyl.
- 4th of January '14: Senen Vaeyl hosted a small aristocratic gathering for the nobility of his house and that of the Foryx. Relationships were forged and rekindled and an unspoken truce was also made. Lord Foryx informed Lord Vaeyl that, in the future, they should meet to discuss more political advances between their two noble houses.
- Consistent through February and March '14: Houses Foryx and Vaeyl make efforts to build their military forces and make preparations for some form of siege. Across the Salve, human thralls of the Foryx work dilligently in Varrock, forming a small cult that opposes the monarchy.
- 29th of March '14: The Salve Barrier is dispelled due to the works of Alatar Overstrand, the chief thrall of the Foryx-Vaeyl human operatives sent into Misthalin. Seven children were sacrificed on the altars beneath Paterdomus, and the well was desecrated with their blood mixed with that of a vampyre.
- 1st-4th of April '14: The Vaeyl are the first to move into Misthalin, making a temporary headquarters at the digsite exam center while the Foryx militarize Paterdomus with a garrison of vyrewatch.
- 5th-25th of April '14: After besieging Varrock (with a victory for the vampyre forces), the Foryx and Vaeyl occupy it, periodically and strategically carting off Misthalin citizens to Meiyerditch in the Sanguinesti to repopulate its reserve. The city fell under a dome of constant darkness during their occupation, and the upper class and royalty of Misthalin were kept under lock and key in Varrock's palace; the citizens that were taken to Morytania were middle and lower class. Why those in the palace were spared remains a mystery.
- Throughout this time, a restistance movement (similar to the Society of the Owl and the Myreque) was formed to combat the vampyres in the city. It utilized geurilla tactics and had several very successful sabotage attacks, though ultimately failed when the Vaeyl led an assault on its headquarters in Varrock's sewers. They were flooded, and most of the resistance participants drowned in the event.
- There were minimal vampyre casualties throughout the entire course of the siege; juvenile vampyres being the entire composition of that number, aside bestial bloodvelds.
- 26th of April '14: In Varrock during its occupation, several Menaphite magicians were snuck into the city with the aid of the resistance. They successfully destroyed the shadow encompassing the city, returning the sun. Every vampyre fled with the order to retreat, and they took temporary refuge in Silvarea before returning to Morytania and their respective covens and lands.
- At this time, there were only vyres remaining in Misthalin, and they in Silvarea garrisoned at Paterdomus.
- By the time they took their leave, the vampyres had taken around 95% of the citizens in Varrock of the middle and lower class.
- 3rd of May '14: What remained of the resistance in Varrock recruited other men throughout Misthalin before leading an assault on Paterdomus. It failed, and ended with most of their capture, including their captain, Magnus. Only later the majority of vampyres realized this was a distraction.
- Simultaneously, Queen Kylara journied into Mortyania and entered Paterdomus from the east. She was accompanied by two,other humans, Aaron, Ali; the third was a descendant from Hallowvale, a half-Elf, half-Icyene, Paula. They carried with them fifty pieces of pure rune essence, and they sought to restore the Salve Barrier.
- After moving through the traps designed by Lord Lothorian Foryx in the lower levels of Paterdomus, and with Aaron remaining behind too wounded to go on, they arrived in the Columbarium to try to deactivate the defenses around the well. There they found Valentin, a Foryx vyrelord acting on Lothorian's direct orders. He had captured Aaron (who was the queen's nephew) and before the trio's eyes ripped out his heart and teleported his body away.
- Afterwards, the vyrelord was assaulted with a flail and the half-icyene's magic and forced to flee. This allowed the trio, while emotionally disheartened, to deactivate the defences around the well by destroying the core of its magic in the Columbarium. They returned to the upper level, the well now accessible, and successfully purified the river, as well restoring the barrier.
- By the time its power had been fully restored, no vampyre remained west of the river barrier.
- 24th-31st of May '14: The emporer of Agrevia, Edward Aren-Grey, gathered his armies after learning of Varrock's previous occupation, and marched on Morytania in response in the manner of a crusade. With him came the Crucible, a large tower powered with immense magical energy. It was used in an assault on Viggora's Folly to decimate the structure and most of the creatures within, and followed his army to Canifis, where they made their final stand against the werewolves.
- The heavily armored humans seemed to be faring well against the outnumbered werewolves, until unforseen vyres entered from the sky. They attacked the Crucible, and Emporer Edward mistook their sabotage for an attempt to capture the technology. Rather than see such a device fall into enemy hands, he took control of it himself, detonating it with himself inside.
- The result left most of Canifis reduced to smoldering ruin, but the werewolf population was spared as it had prior evacuated. A large portion of the crusading army died in the detonation, and the remainder were later surrounded by Vaeyl and Foryx vyrewatch before they were transported to Meiyerditch. Their imprisonment marked the end of Agrevia's crusade.
The Council of Covens
The Council of Covens is a council made up of one-two members of each prominent coven in Morytania. The purpose of this council is to create a meeting area in which covens could discuss political events in a peaceful and organised manner and vote upon future progress of the nation itself.
The following covens hold seats at the council as of this section's most recent update:
At present, the council is disbanded.
Political Map of MorytaniaThe following is a list showing which areas are governed by whom as of this section's most recent update:
- The Slayer Tower, the Mausoleum, and Castle Fenkenstrain: House Vaeyl
- Port Phasmatys, and Burgh de Rott: House Foryx
- The Haunted Mine is currently held by Nakoma Ventress.
- Mort'ton, Barrows Town, Mort Myre (majority), The Hollows, the Ancient Graveyard, and the "Snail Trail", are all vacant land
It is currently agreed that Morytania remain a hierarchial society in which the leading faction is that set in Lore: House Drakan.
It is treated that, outside the Sanguinesti, the Covens and Houses are left to their own devices, to resolve feuds and grow their strength as they wish, so long as they remain loyal to the Drakan. As such, Darkmeyer and Meiyerditch, as well as Canifis, remain "unclaimable", as they are controlled by the Drakan.
Consequently, Morytania is not "player-owned", but uses a "player-governance/regent" system outside of the Sanguinesti Region.
