>>>>>[Good to hear, RtM. Everyone should have a goal....

Nox is..... hmmmm. It would not be stretching the imagination too far
to call her an unholy conglomeration of vampire, toxic spirit, and
totem. A demon.... an evil goddess. A Dark Lord. Currently, she is
'enchained' -- bottled up, imprisoned. Not destroyed, like she should

She .can. get out -- there is no prison that is unbreakable. In fact,
my brethren had to fashion a method for her to break her imprisonment.
For her..... *sigh* 200,000 souls must willingly sacrifice themselves
via immolation in a specially-prepared Circle of Power. There must be
at least a few second's break in between each immolation, but the gap
between each sacrifice must be precise. The last time, the gap between
each death was precisely twenty hours -- thus, 200,000 deaths would take
just under twenty-three years -- twenty-two years, nine months, three
weeks, six days, twenty hours.

The (Dead) Wyrm Ouroboros, now truly dead as far as anyone (including
myself) knows, participated in the disruption of the last ritual. At
that time, two years ago, Nox's ritual was in its twenty-second year,
three-some months from completion.

If she .does. escape, she will be all but impossible to stop. She is a
Dark Lord; Europe, at least, would most likely cease to exist as arable
land, and all life between Gibraltar and the Urals would most likely
disappear. Down to microbes. Viruses. Everything. The life of the
land itself.... ley lines would be drained dry. Spirits would be
utterly destroyed as the land is ruined....

This is a scenario based on the concept that a) she escapes and b) I, or
one of my brethren, are there to stop her. Otherwise.... well, let's
just say that Australia's manastorms wouldn't be a problem any more.

She is totally, irredeemably evil. She exists to devour, to destroy, to
bring 'Endless Night'. I will do my best, with what help I can get, to
make sure she is not trying again to escape -- and to destroy her.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me.]<<<<<
