the Council has emerged. facing desperate circumstances, Pumik and its gang have set aside subterfuge in a last-ditch attempt to unite the Isles in time to face the threat as one, but it may already be too late. Vella's meddling has overloaded the Tidepoint Seal, and Narissa's has shattered it. the arcane backlash disrupts Ossia's weather, darkening the sky with storm clouds and churning the waves into a deadly frenzy. and as the roil builds, the tides, restrained for millennia by the now-broken Seal, begin to rise, creeping slowly up the shores and leaving death in their wake. the worst has come.

Ossia is drowning.




welcome, friends, to The Second Flood, the final set of the Ossia trilogy. if you are unfamiliar with the events of the Ossia storyline or the mechanical themes of the block, you can find links to the previous sets in my signature. for those who enjoy stories, I also wrote an incomplete cycle of vignettes on the various Isles for the M:EM, depicting events that occurred largely between the first set and the second. a couple Isles are missing, but they may get written later. or they may not. we shall see.

vignette cycle


and now the final chapter begins. will Vella succeed in collapsing the plane? will Ulrexes escape his bondage? will Narissa gather the power she needs to restore her form? and what will happen to the Ossian people? let's find out. The Second Flood starts now.

Man, I said a curse word as soon as I read that set name. Oh boy, this is going to be really sad and really exciting.

if it's any consolation, being marked with an ordinal number could be viewed as implying that it is not the last flood...

I mean, it doesn't imply that. that's an absurd reading and requires a huge stretch to reach. but if it gives you any comfort, you're welcome to read it that way.

Hey razorborne I'm not sure if you got the memo but blocks are two sets now.

Also, you should retcon all ships to be vehicles. It really is fitting.

changed Qelan's to "Qelan strikes" and planned out the remaining four so this doesn't happen again.
