Aevum Obscurum - Part 1, De Gesta Domini

Aevum Obscurum –  Part 1


Excerpts from the chronicle: De Gesta Domini by Andreas Scottus


That day will remain in my memory to the end of the times. The soldiers led me along with my old friend Godefroy to the castle of Rome, where once the mighty sacral rulers resided, but their power was nothing compared to the power of the Lord, I had to face during the procedure.
It was late afternoon, but darker than usual. The Sun was like a shapeless yellow smudge on the sky, the date was 24th december 1054, Christmas, few days after the winter solstice, when the Sun begins to gather the power required to break the chains of winter. The black energy shield around the city remained in place since the arrival.
Me and my friend were chosen by the representatives of the Rome to communicate with the „Invader“ and to facilitate the removal of that odd black barrier. In change the city proposed to accept the rule of that unknown magician over Rome, for now. We were strangers to the Roman folk, searching for good wine and young ladies.

We found the doors to the castle open. The soldiers fled back to the city, refusing to go with us, because they knew what happened with the papal guard.
Their departure frightened us, suddenly we recognized that we are alone, unarmed and have to face the powers of unknown. Godefroy insisted, that this is a suicide and we should beat it, run for our lives and get away from this cursed city as soon as possible. I knew He's right, but my curiosity grew larger than my fear. I did not knew what fueled my curiosity so much, but now I know. He was calling us...

After a few minutes we arrived to the place of the meeting. It was a small chapell.
I've placed my hand on the crank, trying to open the door whitout making too much noise.
Suddenly the door bursted open and we saw It!
It was hiding in the skin of the last Pope. We lost control over ourselves.
Godefroy was the first to go through the procedure, what our newly discovered Master called the paternal kiss.
During the kiss He „awarded“ a small piece of His essence to His new apprentice, making him his son. The essence contains all the ancient lore of his species, gathered carefully over the millenia.  
At first it was very frightful to watch my best friend going trough this torment. I could not help him, the Master held me through His power of will.
When he had finished with him, Godefroy was throwed with powers at that time unknown to me to the corner.
He reached for me and I must confess, I would not oppose Him even if I could.
The procedure was very painful, pain is the only thing I remember after all.

I've regained my consciousness a week later, but what a consciousness! He elevated me to an another level of being. Suddenly all the things make sense, questions before unquestioned are clear, unsolved problems are solved. I've become a vast repository of ancient lore, so ancient that even the pyramid builders are youngsters compared to him.
His growls and shrieks are now understandable for me, I'm not human anymore.
We were the first, but more will come and more will bow before him.
Yes here I am Master Shuv’Rath...



1055: A big technology leap is caused by Lord Shuv’Rath by spreading his essence among the „Chosen Ones“. These are mainly high ranking military and civilian officials. So we have two races now on Earth. The Shuv’s, who are the privileged ones and the common folk who remain Humans. The Shuv’s have base oxygen level of -10%.
(Hoops. I got some errors, when tried to research the species. I'll just RP that for now.)

Earth mineral report:
Duranium 92,505
Neutronium 35,505
Corbomite 31,588
Tritanium 33,288
Boronide 27,452
Mercassium 36,940
Vendarite 25,500
Sorium 83,750
Uridium 21,660
Corundium 45,500
Gallicite 46,132



Lord Shuv‘Rath founds several monasteries and scriptoriums, where the scientists can research their future projects. Only Shuv’s are allowed to enter these facilities. They are the only ones who have the needed know-how anyways.
These are:
NAM – North American Monastery
CEM- Central European Monastery
GMW- Gallia Monastery Works
CIRF- Central Imperial Research Facilities
And other...

After the last pockets of resistance are destroyed, the Lord crowns himself and becomes the Imperator of the whole Earth.
A this time he initiates the design of scout ships based on his personal ship, in which he arrived.
These are: The Lord’s Eye, a geological scout and Stella, a gravitational scout.

1st January 1055

The keels of three Lord’s Eyes were laid down.
ISS The Lord’s Eye
ISS Shuv
ISS Heretic

The research facilities had begun to research their new projects. We have only 3 scholars now.
Olivia of York – 25% Defensive Systems
Johannes of Wurtemberg – 15% Energy weapons
Laura of Metz – 0% of Sensors and fire controls  >:(



2nd January 1055
Lord Shuv’Rath recognized, that his position is yet weak. He has the army, but he needs to expand the naval forces. The Central Imperial Research Facilities were ordered to design a warship capable of defending the territory of the Imperium in case an another alien race founds Earth.
Lord Shuv'Rath was pleased to see the designs complete so fast and he ordered, that as soon as the shipyards will finish the "Eyes" they shall retool for the warships.
The scholars proposed two ships. One armed with cannons firing depleted duranium for Anti-Ship role and one armed with Autocannons for fleet defence role.

If it's stupid but it works, it isn't stupid.


If fire fighters fight fire and crime fighters fight crime, what do freedom fighters fight?
