Version 10 - Black Lotus Scandal

I think I got everything that we discussed - comment if I missed something, or something isn't clear.



Why the BL wants the Outlaws:
-The Outlaws and the terrorist strikes in Mythron are a diversion intended to occupy the great minds of Nerogue and Mythron.
-Borin orders the BL to recruit them because he wants a private army.
-The BL hires them to back them up during the assassination.

Why the Coordinator dies:
-He opposes the Black Lotus, so they remove him for dominion over the Outlaws.
-He finds out too much about the Black Lotus, so they keep him from talking.
-He decides he no longer wants a hand in the BL after the High King is killed.

Freeling's Reasons for Killing the King
- Because he's not a good king, and Mythron has been declining because of his rule. And just a suggestion, but how about if the Black Lotus hires me to kill the king because of some evil secret dealings the king has had with some evil people (mentioned in his MOC as an opening for us to use it sometime next year or whenever we feel like using it)



Important facts we have to include in our MOCs (depending on where we are building in the story)

-Who are the Black Lotus?
The Black Lotus are a circle of elite Mythornian mercenaries hired by Borin (the youngest prince of Mythron) to kill his older brothers. Borin only reveals one part of his plan at a time to the Black Lotus who then pass it on to those who do their "dirty work."
There are two "Black Lotuses". One is the organization causing the current trouble. It took its name from a symbol used by the Mythronian politicians who actually do the work of the government combined with the name of a legendary organization whose mystic abilities may come into play at a later date.

-What do the Black Lotus say they are?
The Black Lotus changes its story based on who it is lying to, whether the listener is Freeling or another recruit. For example, if they are after a conscientious soldier, they tell him that they wish to end corruption and bring peace to the land. They spread rumors at random and stick to no official story.

-Why the BL will kill the king
They were hired by Borin (Borin the Betrayer - it has a nice ring to it).

-Who started the BL
The third brother. Later he will order the BL to try to kill the second brother, but they will fail. The third brother either remains unknown, or he runs away. Either way, he will be planning to strike again someday - or he will be killed by the original Black Lotus.

-How the Mythronian High Princes fit into the plot, and which one becomes king.
Borin, the third brother, organizes the Black Lotus and wants them to kill Rowan and Saldon to clear his way to the throne. When the BL fails to kill Saldon, Borin leaves the area to avoid being discovered as the one who planned the assassination of Rowan. Saldon is then crowned. Rowan

Other info
-The Black Lotus will kill the corrupt/unworthy High King, Rowan, using Freeling.
-Brick Boy will try-but-fail to save the king.
-The Black Lotus will kill the Outlaw coordinator.
-FNJ and OoL will investigate the BL in their MOCs.
-Later, Nerogue and the Outlaws will team up to destroy the Black Lotus.
-The king is in Worsan.
-The king has two brothers, Sadon and Borin, who are the heirs to the throne.
-The BL is recruiting Outlaws to its ranks and sending them to Worsan.
-Freeling will kill the last member of the BL inner council.
-We will leave some loose ends (Borin still lives, and the second (original) Black Lotus who the Black Lotus now took their name from) to tie a later story onto.
-Rainos and Enalica do not incorporate their Black Lotus into their foreign policies, whatever individuals may decide. Instead, the alliance will likely take advantage of the chaos.
-The king's brother Sadon will take over Mythron.
-The king had evil secret dealings with some evil people...(another loose end to bring up at a later date)





-----Timeline of MOCs---

() = People
Letters = 2-3 weeks for each letter (This is when the MOCs are posted by us, the admins)
Number = order of when the MOCs will be posted (Some may be posted on the same day or same week)

A= Pre assassination
B= During assassination
C= Directly afterward
D= Coordinator assassination
E= Conclusion

Before A, people will be putting rumors in their MOCs about the Black Lotus in their UC builds, thus getting everyone on MOCpages wondering about this big Black Lotus thing and building up suspense before the assassination MOC by Freeling.

(Freeling) A-1. Freeling joins Black Lotus.

(Brick Boy) B-2. Brick Boy fails to protect the king because of his love (He can show that he stumbled upon the plan in his UC or whatever).

(Freeling) B-3. Freeling assassinates the high king. Because he's not a good king, and Mythron has been declining because of his rule. The Black Lotus hires Freeling to kill the king because of some evil secret dealings the king has had with some evil people...and because they know Freeling can do it well.


Note: C-4 and C-5 may be done at other times.


(Gilbert) C-4. Gilbert sends his side-character to Worsan to purchase weapons. Enalica is busy restructuring and Rainos is not fully extending itself to wipe the Mythronians out of their mountains.

(Caleb) C-5. Agrees to assist Rainos with weapons and lead his faction to by raid southern coastal outposts and small villages to distract Mythron.

(Feeling) C-6. The Black Lotus comes to him and the coordinator revealing Borin's second part of his plan to kill the second brother. Freeling and the coordinator disagree with that plan. The Black Lotus can't risk the assassination information from spreading so they chase after Freeling and the coordinator. Freeling escapes, but the coordinator may not fare so well (Object's MOC next shows that the coordinator dies).

(Object) D-7. Black Lotus kills coordinator & Sozo rises.

(FNJ) D-8. Nerogue and the outlaws team up to tack down Black Lotus.

[Hopefully E 9-11 could all be posted in the same week, even cooler on the same day, but we'll see how it plays out]

(Object) E-9. Finds half of the new members of Black Lotus and destroys them.

(FNJ) E-10. Finds half of the new members of Black Lotus and destroys them.

(Freeling) E-11. Finds the man who brought him into the whole mess and deals with him - resulting in the final death of the Black Lotus assassins. The only person left (no one knows who he is) is Borin the Betrayer.....when will he strike again?

(Gilbert & Caleb)C-E. During the Black Lotus chaos, you decide what happens to the Eastern coast of Rainos and the supply line (maybe the supply goes down, and then later you will face Mythron.)

-----Outcome---

After E-11 (To be played out by the Admins in any way they want to present it)
1. The king's brother takes over Mythron.
2. Sozo becomes the leader of the Outlaws.
3. Brick Boy gets whatever he wants from his new king.
4. Darvainian is recognized for his heroism.
5. Trust is restored between Mythron and Nerogue.
6. Enalica is established.
7. Rainos is suddenly the powerhouse with Enalica as its ally.
8. Mythronians at the Eastern boarder of Rainos are left with a smaller supply line thanks to Enalica's intervention of raiding Mythronian villages/outposts/forts/etc.
9. New government in Mythron improved, but they are in a dire situation with their men at Rainos and Enalica at the seas....

I think this works. Just one point on the MOC timeline - Caleb and I are probably going to combine our Worsan builds with the UC, so they might come before the assassination. They aren't necessarily connected to the BL anyway.

Perfect, and I am glad you have edited it so that me and Gilbert can do ours whenever, because my MOC for the UC is also my MOC explaining me leaving Rainos. But I probably won't be uploading it until the 28th-30th, somewhere around then. I want to be one of the later MOCs, unlike last UC where I was the first xD

The way I saw it...is that we we're going to some outpost of the Black Lotus. Maybe the outpost can be inside Worsan....and for some reason, you attack the people holding me captive. Maybe it's because of an old grudge or something....But in the confusion I manage to escape=)

How does this sound... My character for the Worsan episodes is looking for a weapons deal when Sir Kindle, seeing a fellow knight, calls to him for help from a barred basement window. My character raids the building above with his squire, engaging the outlaws who captured you. The building catches on fire and everyone spills onto the street except you and your beloved, who goes back to rescue you. Outside, it looks like the outlaws are gaining the upper hand, but they are mowed down by unseen archers who disappear across the rooftops. That's the end of my side, and your MOC shows you and your true love at the assassination.

This doesn't relate to the storyline you have laid out here, I know, but for the past few months I had had a story planned out for my character. In it, Coriolanus Glycerius, a member of the Black Lotus, uses some kind of stolen dwarf-exploding-magic hidden in a sewer in Carthal to attempt to assassinate the King of Mythron before the tourney starts. Could somebody who knows the whole BL storyline tell me if this is fine, if I should change characters/alliences, or if I should just scrap the concept? Thanks.

YOU were planning on killing the king of Mythron? I think Freeling was going to hold the knife, and ~ Brick was possibly going to try to stop him at the last minute and fail in the attempt. I suppose explosives might fit in as an extra security measure for the BL, though.

Sorry I didn't see this. This has been my storyline for the past month and a half, so I was never going to actually kill the king (I wouldn't dare ;), only have an attempt on his life. However, if I could integrate this into the official storyline, that would be great.

So my thoughts are that in between B-2 and B-3, my character finds Coriolanus (BL) in the sewers with the bomb, whose purpose is to destroy the evidence from Freeling's mission. I defeat Coriolanus and defuse the bomb, but nevertheless the assassination succeeds. Does this sound alright?

In my next MOC to help move this along (crossover wink wink), I'll show how you staggered over to a random camp that happened to be the Black Lotus's camp and you overheard their real plot:

Set up fake Black Lotus clans throughout The Lands of Mythorn to get everyone nervous and confused. The true Black Lotus will carry out "The Big One" on the King of Mythorn by selecting one unsuspected clever and skillful Outlaw (aka Freeling).

You find out that the day of the deed will come soon. You do not find out who they are because you can't risk being seen. Even though you found out about their plot, it seems that all hope is lost because the rest of the Black Lotus is already in Mythorn and you are stuck in Rainos for the winter with a wound to deal with and no home to stay in.....all seems to be going wrong for you - your Rainosian love, the king of Mythorn, your fellow people in Medis think you're dead, and your health will ultimately fail if your wound can't heal properly....is it the end....will you die in the winter.....

Nope! Darvainian and Jaldor come to the rescue! You tell us about what you heard, and we investigate the camp only to find it packed up leaving nothing but a few pegs and a fireplace (for you saw it a few days earlier). Now that the plot has been revealed and we don't know where the Black Lotus originated, I take you back to Mythron and Jaldor probably stays at Red Sand. Your next MOC could be how you say your good-bye to Jaldor and sign something to never attack Red Sand or anyone of his men unless they engage in an attack on Mythorn. It's the first long-lasting treaty between Mythron and Rainos.

Hopefully by then Freeling officially joins the Black Lotus. Then your next MOC could be how you have been traveling swiftly to get to Reedus before the Black Lotus members carry out their deed. You know what to do from there :)

Where is the king going to be when he is assassinated? (Carthal, right?) I'll be in the sewers right underneath him, and my part would come after Brick announces the plot and before Freeling finishes it.

I've been chasing Coriolanus, a magician who's part of the BL, for my past several MOCs. I find him in the sewers of Carthal with the "bomb," which will be set off seconds after Freeling escapes to destroy his tracks and witnesses. Although I stop Coriolanus from detonating the "bomb," the assassinations still succeeds, and the story continues as before.

I think the plan is to kill him in Worsan, where he is currently a captive from the failed invasion of September. Only his closest advisors in Mythron know where he is, however, and I suppose that he has an impersonator keeping the secret in Mythron.

So maybe Coriolanus has been on the run, thinks the king's in Carthal, and doesn't know the king is still in Worsan? That would be a nice plot twist to make things more realistic- Black Lotus isn't sure where the king is, so it sends my assassin to Carthal and Freeling to Worsan. (That would also work because I don't have the exact face for the current king :)

As an opener to the March UC and an extra feature for the king's assassination, would it work if we presented the factional breakdown by featuring what our characters are doing when the news reaches them or when the BL makes its next move in a single page? We could all take extra pictures from our latest builds showing the effects, then upload them and write the text as if they were to be individual pages, copy the html and post them all together. For example, I'm thinking of having the BL recruit Steven's forces for their army.

As an opener to the March UC and an extra feature for the king's assassination, would it work if we presented the factional breakdown by featuring what our characters are doing when the news reaches them or when the BL makes its next move in a single page? We could all take extra pictures from our latest builds showing the effects, then upload them and write the text as if they were to be individual pages, copy the html and post them all together.

I assume Freeling would post this? I'm up for the idea, but I'm really starting to ponder weather I should join the MA. I hope I don't get too far.

Wha? The BL will only recruit Freeling - that's it. Everything else about the Black Lotus was meant to cause confusion, fear, and a distraction from the BL's actual plot.

Exactly - Freeling is taken into the inner circle to kill the king, and other forces are amassed and kept in the dark to threaten Mythron. Rainos also needs some "evil" imagery, and I thought it would be a good idea to give split challenges by letting people in most factions choose their own sides. Some Rainosians will refuse to mix with Outlaws or kick Mythron when it's this low (like the king and Adam's character, I think) and half will join in, receiving some equipment from the BL in return for plunder and equipment. The BL probably intends to betray them later, I imagine.

I could do that. I won't be super active, as I've said, but I can get on MOCpages enough to post things.

Great. I'm slightly concerned about Enalica, though, with its leader and deputy busy.

Is Caleb too busy as well? I thought he was ready to go after he finished his move.

Yes, he's having a hard time, well, finding time for MOCpages. Check the title of his HP, then take a look at his activity bar.

Is this being prepared for the month of March?

I am sorry to hear that - I once had to spend a month with access to only my Bionicles, and that was hard enough. Unfortunately, we need to get this moving.

Freeling kills the king. I'm fairly certain the challenge will work like this: Mythronians have the choice to stick with the king's second brother and fight the BL or work independently to protect their region; Nerogues can go undercover to work out the BL's secrets or face them in the field; the Outlaws can join the BL or fight for their old crime syndicate; and Rainosians and Enalicans are offered a choice between working with the BL to crush their enemy and taking advantage of the other factions' distraction to spend time improving their own factions/preparing against a spread of the conflict.

Thanks a bunch! So Brick is next. I'm starting to get things ready for my part.


I moved your comment in my faction group where it won't be seen. As it says here the Coordinator opposes Black Lotus, I have to show that.

Why do you have it in for the BL? We both know that it's going to collapse later when the true mastermind is revealed, but I'm still letting my faction-mates join in for now - in fact, I even sent my own character over. Why are you trying to scare all the Outlaws out of joining?

I have the role of coordinator, I must act on his behalf. He would scare people away from joining so that is what the administration decrees.

Oh, alright. I didn't see your comment right above my last one. Maybe you could let your Outlaws know that they can still choose the BL, even if the official network is opposed?

Their a bunch of Outlaws, they'll do what they want no matter what I say. Two people might listen, the rest will never see my comment.
