AC1022, Lady Magda Snapsby Sean Meaney
Having spent 300,000,000gp of her own money over 10 years in employing Alphatian Wizards to turn her estate into a flying island, Lady Magda Launches her estate.
The estate and city of Specularum(Mirros) are subjected to earth tremors as the estate pulls free.
After the estate launches, the capital is left fifty feet above sea level on the newly formed Marilenev Escarpment with no port. The Highreach River now ends 7 miles north east as it pours over a 30 feet high waterfall into the sea.
The concordant ascended from Mirror Bay. The kings flying ship circled above the now airborne estate of Marilenev.
They descended into Castle Marilenev past the defences and guards.
King Stephan confronted the Lady Magda in the great hall of her castle. The Estate was now a shadow over Mirros.
Both sides surrounded by Alphatian Wizards, the enemies closed until the closeness was terrifying.
"Wretched Woman." Stephan Karameikos struggled with the words. The strength was gone from him. and he fell.
Lady Magda collapsed over King Stephan's Body. and began weeping.
"No! not like this. Give me back my family." The Lady Magda struggled to look away for help but it was not coming.
"Help Me." she screamed at the Alphatian Wizards around her.
The Kings Wizard looked at her.
"He is not young anymore, beloved Magda. The immortals of time come for him."
"Then give them to me that i may make us young again."
"No." The Aged Magda looked incensed at the words of the old wizard.
"Please." grief and anger consumed her.
The old wizard shook his head.
"It is all lost." The body of King Stephan and his wizard vanished leaving lady Magda to here despair. The Estate was all she would have to comfort her in these final months.
