A call has been made to all the writers of the AQ universe in the effort to stop the Trumpha from destroying creativity and imagination! It’s time to put your writing skills to the test – there’s some juicy prizes up for grabs!

Dearest Loreians,

The Truphma have but one purpose. They hate creativity. They hate imagination. And they hate it when people like you exercise such talents and skills. Every time you use your imagination, you hurt them, you deal a blow that sets them back. I hate that they found Lore, but it was inevitable. They are on a constant search for worlds to bend to their will, worlds to obliterate the wonder of dreams.

I ask you now, dearest Adventurer, to take the time to conjure a tale worthy of fighting the Truphma. The better the story, the greater the detail, the more creative it is, the weaker they will be. You can tell any story you want. If you desire to regale your participation in any of the activities, wars, and/or mysteries that has run rampant across Lore, then tell us what History may not have recorded. If you simply want to retell an adventure you had that may have happened “behind the curtains”, then please do so.

I know, Adventurer, that with your imagination and talents, you can create a story that will deal a solid blow to the Truphma and continue to show them that Lore will NOT lay down, will NOT surrender, and will NOT give up. I have faith in you, dear Adventurer. Never forget that.

And, though it pains me to do this, the reward for the greatest tale is something no one else will ever have. There was a planet, far away from here that fought bravely, fought true, but they were not able to turn the Truphma away. The society had developed music, art, writing, and storytelling into a mastercraft. It was everything to them. When they fell, despite my best efforts to help save them, only one thing escaped unscathed. It has meant much to me, but if you can create a story that will deal a massive blow to the Truphma, then you will deserve such a reward for your efforts.

Thank you, Adventurer, for doing this. Your sacrifice and toil will not be forgotten.

With much appreciation and affection,

Eukara Vox
