2.  Reign of the Mad King

Boss Sirius Revlis, Black Witch Eris Eternity
7 May 2011 - 22 August 2012

The foundation of Salsola was an auspicious event, one that would change the history of many notable bloodlines as well as the greater peninsula itself. Having lived in numerous packs (Twilight Vale, Shadowed Sun, Inferni, and Anathema) prior to becoming the infamous founder of the Thistle Kingdom, Sirius was known to be an extremely clever man easily frustrated by what he perceived to be a restrictive, uncivilized culture. It was his dissatisfaction with serving other clans and prostrating himself before lesser rulers that prompted the Revlis man to his own ambitious rise.

Little is known about the specifics of Sirius' life prior to the foundation of Salsola, or what cultures predominantly influenced the birth of this new settlement. A secretive and meticulous man, his larger-than-life persona would lay the bedrock for many of Salsola's unique cultural values.

What is known is that Sirius was a fickle and unpredictable king, who enjoyed a good challenge and was easily bored by the tedium of settled life. He later was granted the sobriquet "the Mad King" by the civilians and historians of Salsola for his increasingly unstable and volatile temperament. Prone to sudden and vicious tantrums at any sign of insubordination, it is no wonder that the Law of Salsola quickly developed to maintain a severe and strict hierarchy that allotted absolute power and nigh immunity to the ruling elite.

Early in the second year of his rule, the Mad King quite suddenly renounced his reign to the daughter of the Black Witch, his original second in command. His sudden absence temporarily left the still-fledgling community reeling, until the next Queen rose to her fame and assumed control. There are many rumors surrounding Sirius' disappearance, including whispers of treason and blackmail - Though nothing is ever so scandalous as the truth.

YEAR I - Yearbook 2011

OVERVIEW
In Midwinter of 2011, Sirius Revlis returned to his place of birth in Nova Scotia, heading to Anathema where Naniko D'Angelo (the woman who raised him) lived. Sirius settled into the pack uneasily, meeting a strange woman who claimed distant relation to himself - Eris Eternity. Over the next few months, Sirius educated Eris at her behest in a great number of topics, and all the while they grew closer.

It was Sirius who first suggested they might form a pack of their own. Eris was hasty to agree, finding herself likewise connected with only a choice few members of Anathema. Thus the idea of a new pack began to bubble and brew in their minds.

Throughout late Winter/early Spring, they conspired secretly in the long cold nights, whispering of this place where they would seize much-desired power and all other fantastical conjectures made by would-be monarchs. They began to quietly recruit some short time later - these members they sought were predominantly Anathemans, Infernians and Loners suggested by Eris, who found herself with at least enough social connections to form the basis and foundation of what would become a great civilization. In the first week of true Spring, the assorted and eclectic group hand-chosen by the new rulers made their way to the westernmost corner of Drifter Bay, where they settled among the thistle and ruins of humanity and raised Salsola from the black loam of the coast.

EVENTS

  • Event: Sequoia Plot
    • Summary: The Sequoia Alliance was a group of loosely-affiliated luperci, an assortment of characters from multiple packs with like-minded interests. Initially, they were founded to bring wrongdoers to justice, but this proved to be a much more heady task. Though they had many individual ambitions, the group was devastated and eventually scattered when their attempt to raid Salsola and free its slaves was overthrown by Salsolan forces.
  • Event: Ichika-Salsola conflict - 1, 2, 3, 4
    • Summary: Intent on expanding their reach and reputation, Salsola looks toward its neighbor Ichika no Ho-en. After investigating their defenses, three Salsolans slip into Ichika's borders unnoticed and begin to raid the livestock. Taken are two llamas, but not without cost: the raiders are interrupted by a startled horse, and one of them - Magnolia Takekuro - is captured by the Ichikans. High ranking Salsolan and Ichika no Ho-en members meet to discuss the recent raid and its implications, and they strike a deal - an exchange of hostages takes place.

NOTABLE THREADS

  1. leave your mouth talking
    Date: Mid Spring, 2011
    Location: Anathema
    Eris and Sirius go fishing together; Sirius teaches Eris how to fish. Their unlikely but crucial relationship at this point is one of trust and reliance. It's OOCly assumed Sirius brings up the pack idea with Eris after these events. Following this thread, Sirius and Eris meet together in secret over a period of a few weeks to hash out potential members, ranks, and so forth.
  1. the ragged, noxious weed
    Date: Late Spring, 2011
    Location: The newly founded territory of Salsola
    Sirius waits on Salsola's new territory while Eris leads the founding members from Anathema to him; They announce their intentions to found the pack here and get to marking the borders immediately afterward. Salsola has officially been born.
  1. [M] the Last Supper
    Date: Early Summer, 2011
    Location: Salsola, the Ruins
    The pack gathers together for its first feast night together. This is the birth of a tradition that will last for many dynasties, and has its foundation in a religion from the old world.

    Date: Midsummer, 2011
    Location: Salsola, the Ruins

  1. [M] the blackest hole in all of space
    Date: Late Summer, 2011
    Location: Salsola
    Eris and Larkspur burn their sickly child, Shibboleth, in a pyre. Religion, particularly of the cruel Khalif gods, has been a catalyst for much of Salsola's spiritual culture. Many credit the darker works of the Black Witch Eris with the creation of the infamous Coven - this is a historical example of the darker aspects to religion and the Craft.
  1. OOC the Last Supper Recap
    Date: Early Autumn, 2011
    Location: Salsola, the Ruins
    Salsola gathers for another Last Supper celebration. This is an OOC summary thread; rather than play it out, this time we chose to take submissions for the supper instead. This post gives a recap of many IC events that played out in the prior season.
  1. the Last Supper
    Date: Midwinter, 2011
    Location: Salsola, the Ruins

    Led by ex-member Tayui Aston, a group who call themselves the Sequoians attempt to free a number of Salsolan slaves in a raid. They are eventually defeated by Salsolan forces, though not without some casualties.

YEAR II - Yearbook 2012

OVERVIEW
Sirius was an enigmatic, charismatic, and volatile ruler. Able to sway new recruits and useful allies with the ease of his infamous silver tongue, the small settlement steadily grew and prospered. However, a poison lived within the mind of the new Boss, driving him to increasingly erratic and dangerous behavior. Surprisingly early into Salsola's fruitful existence, Sirius suddenly and inexplicably abdicated his throne and disappeared with his small family - Coincidentally, Inferni's then-Aquila Ezekiel de le Poer, long rumored to be the Mad King's lover, disappeared at the same time.

Freshly born, Salsola was plunged into its first political uncertainty.

EVENTS

  • Event: Boreas Conflict - 1, 2
    • Summary: The Boreas Conflict entails a series of attacks carried out by the Boreas wolves of Zion on coyote-clan Inferni and (at the time) a coyote-run Salsola. Their decision to attack both packs simultaneously proved to be a fatal mistake – the two packs allied together to crush the Boreas foe. Only a few enemy stragglers survived the final massacre and made it out alive, and it took them many months to return to Zion, spreading stories of “northern barbarian heathens”.

NOTABLE THREADS
