Challenges in Minus

Our Story

Now that the Cosian Occupation of Ar lead by the puppet Talena has been brought to a bloody end the city has begun to reach out to Minus in a bid to reforge ties that were strained and eventually broken by the weight of Cosian interference. Under Cimber's leadership the town had declared itself independent of Ar during Talena's treacherous reign ending Minus' status as a tributary of the city. However, as those in Minus can attest that act incurred a great cost but one deemed worthwhile in the course of resisting tyranny.

Minus will continue working to maintain this hard fought independence although with the return of Marlenus who has recently taken back the City of Ar in a bloody uprising, it is feared that in the Ubar's rumoured quest to seize territory lost during his daughter's dismal reign Minus may be among the first to feel his wrath. After all while the Arian military has been affected by corruption and traitors within Ar it is not completely destroyed therefore still posing a threat to the town.

Thus, sensitive negotiations have taken place between the two sides meant to slowly re-establish peaceful and prosperous relations with the understanding that The Central Cylinder of Ar will no longer enjoy full authority over the daily affairs and governing of Minus as it had in the past, and in return the town and its Administrator will support the city in both its rebuilding efforts and future plans to retake territories ceded to or currently allied with Cos on the mainland.

As part of this negotiated deal young Arian warriors are now traveling to Minus to be trained in the newly created War Academy where they will learn under the Warriors of Minus many of whom have ties to the great city to the south and have now fought in two major campaigns in the past five years. The stories of Minus' Warriors as they stood against Treve and its Cosian conspirators, and marching from the north (Lydius) to retake their home land this past summer has earned the town and its people a reputation in Ar for being strong and tenacious. Therefore, it is seen as an honour to both sides that Ar would request that its next generation of Warriors be trained by those of Minus as it rebuilds its depleted military.

It is hoped by being apart of this rebuilding process Minus will earn favour in the city and perhaps enough influence to continue keeping the Ubar at bay, for while all is well for the time being the people of Minus know all to well that the winds of peace may change without reason or warning, bringing with it the sounds of conquest...


Elsewhere in our story - Secondary Locations
The story of Minus has extended to the following locations. Anyone is welcome to get involved and if there are any questions or ideas please contact Cimber (Chev.) or Gaia (V.V.)

The Lower Districts of Ar : Marlenus' edict is clear! Any and all within the City of Ar who assisted Cos must die. The streets will run red with blood in the pursuit of the Ubar's promised peace which has lead to a gruelling war in the Lower Districts as the gangs who casually colluded with the enemy are in the process of being rooted out. Although Marlenus publicly decries the violence in the Lower District he is in fact backing certain factions pledging loyalty to his cause to purge the city of any and all traitors. Among those seeking to reclaim his former place and glory as a leader within the Lower Districts is Tyraxes, a criminal owing his new found freedom to none other than Tyrios Herennius and the people of Minus. Helping his cause to gathering new men to his ranks is the promise that should he re-establish himself his gang will have access to the Minus river docks for their various operations.

The Unbroken Stronghold: The flag of Minus is still seen flying in the port of Lydius after Cimber and the free people of Minus (aka the Minus Loyalists) marched south to reclaim their homeland. Although they have been victorious in seizing control of Minus once again the Stronghold remains open to them acting as a secondary home and a secondary front for continued hostile actions against Cos.

Although the City of Ar has also risen up against its Cosian Occupiers with the return of Marelnus, Cos still has allies on the mainland impacting trade on the inland routes. So long as Cos is permitted to maintain its foothold on mainland Gor further action against the Island Ubarates will continue.

Thus, the mandate for those in Minus remains in effect with efforts still focused on cutting off Cos from resources in the Northern Forest which are vital to its ship building operations while hounding its naval and trade fleets traveling Thassa.
