Welcome to the House of the Rising Phoenix

The House of the Rising Phoenix is dedicated to combating the forces of the Unlife in Elanthia, standing steadfast against the agents of Chaos, releasing the tortured spirits of the Undead from their eternal torment, and dedicating ourselves to the protectection of Elanthia and its citizenry. We strive to maintain honor within the lands, leading by good example. Keeping the records of time and knowledge, we share our libraries of lore and history for the further edification of all who seek knowledge.

Others may come among you with secret words of power and mystic symbols to lure even those who would fight hardest against them. ”

Wehnimer's Landing Orphanage Pledge Ball

Phoenix endorses the Orphanage pledge drive. Please be on the watch for additional donation drives in the future or donate to Greganth or Seomanthe. A clothing drive, toy drive, and silver drive have commenced to date with more to follow. The event raised 2,500,000 for the orphans of Wehnimer's Landing.


Dear Citizens and Friends,

We have been astonished and gratified at the upwelling of support and generosity that has grown for the Wehnimer's Landing children's home. We thank you from the bottoms of our hearts, and wish all could have seen the expressions of wonder and joy on the faces of the children who have received the donations thus far.

As the Feast of the Immortals draws near and we all begin to think of spending time with our families and exchanging gifts and warmth, we would like to invite one and all tonight our our very first Pledge Ball, where we will begin taking your pledges of monetary support to fund the building and outfitting costs for the children's home. Please do not bring silver or notes -- we will only be maintaining a pledge log, which we will turn over to the town clerk to follow up on when the time comes.

Time: 9PM Elven
Place: House Phoenix Tent on the North Ring Road, generously donated for the evening

Wishing you and yours the best during the Feast,
Greganth and Seomanthe Bartley-Olberath and the Supporters of the Wehnimer's Landing children's home

Masquerade Macabre Returns to House Phoenix!

Return to the festivities and model and mime your creation for a chance at the best prizes. Macabre merriment will continue with fearful fortune-telling, ghastly games, scary storytelling, frightening feasting, dreadful drinking, and ghoulish treats galore.

The festivities will begin on Feastday, the 13th of Jastatos (Saturday, October 13th) at 9:00 P.M. elven.

Planar and Dimensional Beings Discussion - Frontier Days (8/22)

You've seen the illusion of the wind realm valance. You've faced Oculoths summoned by Morvule. We've fought streaking Vathors from the sky under Grishom Stone's command. Clerics summon spirits. Sorcerors have imps to do their bidding. The dead can be animated. You may have witnessed these, but where do they come from, how is it done, and how do you feel about it? Join us to discuss these topics and more in an open forum within the House of the Rising Phoenix Library!

Wednesday, 8/22, at 7pm EST.

Threat to the Order of Voln!

We were alerted to growls outside of the Gates several ours past nightfall. The Defense was formed there under myself gradually. With all the Krolvin attacks were somewhat surprised by the appearance of spectral shades and rotting ghouls initially, but the attack escalated almost immediately to shadowy apparitions when we saw Balantine fall. Much of our forces were around the North Gate, along the wall and towards the bridge to Voln. Much of the attack centered on this area.

The moans of the undead attempted to unnerve us, but when that wasn't enough a shadowy figure began appearing. He wielded powers we hadn't seen before. He was throwing balls of light forms at us that would open into starry voids. They caused dizziness, spinning, and shifted us temporarily to confuse and disorientate us throughout the area. Afterwards he'd vanish.

As these snipe attacks were occurring the undead continued to escalate. Shadowy steeds and warriors first appeared near the bridge followed by more apparitions, and the more powerful minions masked in inky black shadows. Servants, Masters, and Champions. All of which were powerful beings. The servants were particularly difficult due to their high defense against weaponry. Upon receiving reinforcements from town we were much more prepared for the waves of attacks we were facing.

The dizzyness inducing starry void attacks continued and the figure would vanish before we could engage him. They were followed by orbs of course appearing of out of the air next to people and blasting them with a crushing force. They seemed to be projectiles as we couldn't see them before they materialized and sped towards us. We did confirm they were coming from the robed figure.

Droit was eventually able to vine him, but he sunk into the ground and vanished. Kerl was quick to engage him once upon him materializing, but it wasn't effective.

The shadowy figure exclaims, "We shall destroy your Order! The way of Voln will never taint my home again!"

He then proceded to use a jab attack style on Archales none of us had seen before. After this he tried to slip into hiding, but several of us managed to spot him doing so. He was revealed and Dhuul was able to hit him with a platinum energy blast. We thought he was killed, but he growled a death rattle, and his body turned into a pitch black puddle of ink and seeped into the ground.

We were able to get a better look at him then. He was an Erithian. Kerl then remarked of the problems the Voln chapter in the Erithian lands was having and that the founder of the Order there had been assassinated recently.

All of Voln is called to attention. Our Order is being threatened. Heed the call!

By my hand,
Geijon Khyree

The Star of Khar'ta

As the Summoners ended and we've mostly all recovered, the artifact named the Star of Khar'ta has been taken by the Krolvin Czag'Herndrok (Warlord) Krentuk has put the city of Wehnimers under storms and snow while his numerous ships and Krol Champions attack our city.

Roaming 20-30th level Krol are along North Ring Road, Level 90-95 brigands are in the Black Sands of the Coastal Cliffs, and four ships are located off room 250 (Lich) at the Docks in Wehnimers. The ships are to the North as 30-40th Ship, 50-70th Ship, the other two are East 70-85, Galley 100-120 Galleon

The invasions themselves include Rangers, Pyromancers, and some additional variations to test us. Kenstrom promised several weeks of attacks on 6/27. This should wrap by probably 7/12-7/18. As usual it's most active time is weekends and 9-1am CST on weeknights as a past barometer.

Wehnimers Returns to Normal!

It has been just over 30 days since the defeat of Grishom Stone. The town of Wehnimer's Landing has finally returned to normallacy and with that so too does the House of the Rising Phoenix.

Chairman Shirkon was a staunch supporter of Mayor Walkar and from Juramis missteps to various shaddy attempts to usurp control of the Council and the city by Stone we stood against him. That loyalty to the town rang true as Phoenix contingents were often involved in combating the forces of Grishom throughout his campaign. All of us are proud of what we represent and none disappointed.

Look for a more relaxed 5112 as we get involved again in bringing Wehnimer's together, but be wary, Elithian Cross and his transformed daughter did vanish into the mist with Stone's Islands demise, the Red Dreamer is stirring, and you never know with our guru. (Go Kenstrom!)
