Subj: The Fifth Crucible of the Slaves


It is the proud few who ascend from the shackles of slavery, rising along the path to greatness as a citizen of Mhaldor. It is the fewer still who prove themselves worthy to cast off their shackles not through years of service, but who are forged in the fires of the Crucible.

Every few decades an opportunity arises for those with the will to seek it. On the first of Sarapin, 755 years after the fall of the Seleucarian Empire, shall commence the Fifth Crucible of the Slaves. A year-long trial by fire wherein slaves shall compete in feats of strength, acts of iniquity, demonstrations of endurance, infliction of brutality, and capacity for cruelty, the Crucible of the Slaves separates the Strong from the weak, as thrashing wheat from so much chaff.

One slave alone will stand out amongst their peers, and so be declared Champion of the Crucible and a Troni of Mhaldor.

Will you stand a leader, or perish like the rest? The choice is yours. If you are under twenty years of age, you may speak with Maric at Pestilent Way in Mhaldor. All others should speak with the Ambassador, Dragoon Hataru Lichlord, Scourge of the Legion, to seek enslavement before the Crucible begins.

Citizens of Sapience, greatness beckons. Cast off the shackles that bind you: the fear in your hearts, the doubt in your mind, the ties that chain you to your past. Break free of the prisons you have built yourselves and claim the greatness that is rightfully yours! And the chosen few who fear not death nor failure, fear not heights nor their own potential, shall take their places as leaders of lesser mortals, and shepherd the weak into the promised land of Strength and progress!

In Strength,
