First things first we have to set out a posting order and how its going to work. The forces in general or all going to be pretty split up because if they were all in the same place they would well end up murdering each other right then and there. I don't expect each force to be in the same area of the kingdom and I don't expect everyone to be there straight away. Some of the Pendragon forces are Split and those with magic can be in different places quite quickly.
So much like the mini event to do with oz the main posting order only applies if everyone is in the same area, when everyone is in different areas they can say have posted five times as long as they are in their order while another two in another part of the kingdom have posted three times but in their order. Once they come together the posting order between them changes a little as there are now four in the same place. One thing you must remember is to tag someone when your rping with them so like @ and then their username.
Posting order for when we are all together would be something like this
Emerys Merridian Finn/Merlin @jim King Noah/Evan Williams Graham/Huntsman Elaine Llyr Ophelia of Kildenree Grandmother Willow Meg/Mimi Koyle Jesse Olympus/ Hercules Morgana Le Fay Regina Mills Peter Pan/Malcom
I will be NPCing a few people here and there but the outcome is up to the members of this event, I'm not going to railroad you into a certain person winning. Also be warned but this takes place after season 3A. Getting Excalibur from the labyrinth and passing the test of faith to get it, this wont be everyone's goal so not everyone will go into the labyrinth for that reason. That doesn't mean you cant be part of the Pendragon forces[or the other forces] and get Excalibur instead of Arthur that can happen.
Camelot had been dragged to the very brink of war the kingdom was in utter chaos, and had been ever since both merlin and King Arthur had vanished from the kingdom, the peasants had begun getting ideas and the nobles themselves where in utter panic, and then the curse came to make matters worse. Most of the kingdom had been taken away to Storybrooke but few remained behind, having been part of Cora's protection spell. When the 28 years were over they rebuilt the kingdom slowly and well that's when the troubles began, The Queen and the Knights of the round table went missing and the peasants had begun to get even more unruly, having more and more arguments with the few remaining nobles. The Ruby throne however lay vacant awaiting it's king.
Then Regina undid her curse, well she had to thanks to Pan but its meant everyone from the Enchanted Forest was now sent back here, everyone was home again, and people made their way back to their various kingdom's. Camelot's people had been dotted around here and there some people had already made it back but Merlin and quite a huge amount of Camelot's people had yet to actually enter Camelot.
It had taken a while but Merlin had been able to get Arthur to gather his followers and decided to promise him something about treasure, and maybe the Holy Grail while he was at it. Merlin had left after that though having to check something out a voice heard calling, and when he appeared upon the lands of the kingdom of Camelot things had changed dramatically. Mordred had begun massing forces, as had the Order of Merlin though he had actually already known about this, but there was more disturbing news of a dark cloud hanging about the southern part of the kingdom. Merlin had tried penetrating it but he could not. There however was name that danced in his mind one he knew all to well Morgause de faelir. The peasants themselves had also started a rebellion after having a taste of democracy they wanted it in Camelot. A Labyrinth had appeared in the middle of the kingdom where Excalibur and a test of faith lay in wait. Camelot stood on the brink of war and Merlin and Arthur had begun to call in their allies.
"War will start Arthur and while the ultimate Goal is Camelot, your head is as big a prize as any," Merlin warned Arthur as he observed the kingdom from one of the high mountains that they had camped on, it was night time and it had been a two day's since they sent out the call to arms. People had been trekking in from all over, for the moment most of them displaced people of Camelot but Merlin was sure more would come, it didn't help some of Arthurs men were stuck inside the castle trying to calm the peasants down. Arthur's Forces were divided and not whole like, Mordred's. The Good thing was it was much less of a volatile mix than the Order of Merlin was. "Kill the King and you take away the biggest threat to wanting the throne yourself, we have to be careful Arthur. You are a big Target," He did not want to worry the king but it was the truth and he needed to know it.
Merlin side and brought up his hand a table appearing with chairs and cup of tea, all in the style of Storybrooke the place having made an impression on the mage. There was now a battle map on the table, a live battle map made by Merlin's magic. "We could use this to plan our move's, and see where the enemy is," He smiled up at Arthur knowing he was nervous, "We may not have a large force Arthur, but your a clever man and we have allies everywhere, drink it will sooth your nerves, you'll need them before you take back Excalibur." Merlin looked around for a moment and then from where he was sat down at the labyrinth, he felt troubled and unsure of what would happen. There was something wrong and foul on the air and he did not like it. "There are least four oth......." Whatever Merlin was going to say was quickly cut short as he heard a horn blast and he stood up, perhaps this was one of their allies.
