This documentary should help you understand alta-5 s calender,
as the temple order has chosen Meedass s birth date to start it,
dating this event as day 0001!
month of the warlord.
as for the story, landlords where never easy to deal with in the 1 rst place,
but, in these 'dark age times' they had 'life and death' power
over the commoners, or peasants...
so, they pretty much ruled as they saw fit...
YOU WILL NOT TAKE THE CHILDREN!!!
DID YOU TOUGHT I WOULD STAND STILL WHILE YOU AGRESS MY SOVEREING!?!
and you travelers said they where in league with the devil?
is this village heretic?
TRAVELERS IN DISCORD AND PANIC;
YES! BURN THEM! HANG THEM! I don t know them...TAKE THEM NOT US...
there is so much rage in this man...
I think it s a classical case of posession, as ruler of these lands I have a duty...
you villagers will assist me with exorcising this man, or...
I hang you, and burn your village!
are you with me, or the devil?
NOW, YOU ALL HAVE YOUR STICKS!
REMEMBER, IT IS NOT YOUR FRIEND ANYMORE!
A DEMON POSSESSES HIS BODY, YOU HAVE TO BEAT IT OUT OF HIM!
DON T LISTEN TO HIS PLEAS, YOU JUST HURT THE DEMON!
YOU HAVE TO CHANT THE INCANTATION LIKE THIS;
DEMON, DEMON, BETTER BEWARE!
I KNOW THIS SHELL,
AND THE SOUL IS NOT THERE!
...AND HIT THE DEMON OUT AS HARD AS YOU CAN!
THE SOUL IS NOT THERE! oups!
DO YOU WANT TO KILL THIS MAN?
[whining]PLEASE! I... I M SORRY...
I swear allegeance, anything...
YOU DID WELL LEAVING REAL SOLDIERS VERMIN,
YOU HAVE NO TESTO!!! LOL!
YOU RE NOT EVEN A PEASANT, YOU RE...
this man saved this village many times,
he is a just and brave man, I can t see you torture him like this,
and use us as puppets!
BE MINDFUL OF YOUR TONGUE PEASANT!
I have your children, they will garantee your 'allegience'...and productivity,
I will send spies from time to time, you better be true!
each end of the month, I will send men to collect my due...90% should do fine.
when will we get them back?
not until they are adults, unless the castle is finished first...
THAT S NOT FAIR TO US!
whatever happened to your father was not our fault!
he insisted, and treathened us to get more and more!
HE WAS A SICK MAN!!!
besides, it changes nothing, you will get to visit them,from time to time.
when they are adults...they will decide for themselves where to live.
I used the chains because it scares the wolves away,
I use the children, like you used my father,
we must go for their safety now,
it is getting dark, and wolves get agressive...as you must know!
I leave you this to eat tonight, it is better then what I had most nights....
ONCE THE BARONESS GONE, THE VILLAGERS ARE AT THEIR HIGHIEST DESPAIR...
CRYSTAL! MY POOR LITTLE GIRL! [sob]
Just then, an elf bonaventure woman apeared...
where is the chief of this village?
I traveled great distances...
ANOTHER TRAVELER? I had it with those kinds!
do you want to burn our village too?
I come to warn you of great disaster!
YOU SHOULD HAVE SAID THAT YESTERDAY!!!
a child will be born here, tonight, that causes chaos across all this universe!
you have to give it to me as soon as he is born!
ARE YOU CRAZY WOMAN!?!
I LOST 1 SON TODAY!
YOU MIGHT BE CLAIRVOYANT, BUT, YOU SEE NOTHING OF OUR DESPAIR?
OFF WITH YOU!!!
I WON T PART WITH THE CHILD I HAVE NOT YET HAD!
I know your troubles!
I know it is not fair to you!
yet you must let me have him for the benefit of all,
your life s destiny is in your hands I offer the best alternative!
OFF WITH YOU WOMAN!
I understand how you feel, yet, know this...
this village will suffer and perish under this child influence!
...and you...galen, will be one of the first, and worst!
OFF WITH YOU!!!
OR I SWEAR YOU WILL TASTE MY STICK!!!
oh, Galen, I feel it s for tonight,
And I am troubled by what that woman said...
she is an elf, it s always half truths with these people,
you d take your entire life thinking and never figuring what she meant...
what if the baby is a monster?
listen cybyl...you are a good person,
and I am a good person...
if this baby is half of what samson is...
I will be the happiest man on this land!
so like every night, they locked the gate at sundown,
as the wolves get much bolder!
BABY CRIES VERY LOUD...
what is wrong cybyl?
I don t know..it s like he wants something!
mmm, it s not samson...
never heared sam complain...ever!
I hope this child will bring us riches, because, I m not sure we will eat so well...
Well my original comment got lost in purgatory! What I said in it was that this story/episode/build/legend had the feel of an certain Anne Rice novel that I just got through reading. The novel was her 3rd in her Vampire series and the novel's name was "Queen of the 'a word that starts with a D'". That is why it got sent to purgatory! Oh no... ! Anywho, I liked the flavor of this one! :)

So just how many figs do you own?
lol, I own enough for convincing stories about this period for about 8 episodes, after that, the collector figs should rescue the serie, hopefully, it should give the Meedass serie comic book quality characters, I own and work on 'props' of the period too, I give Meedass all I got, scenes, characters, scripts, lighting, innovation, concepts, humour, it should come out as my very best...until my 2 others,lol.
