Jaden is also relaxed, and joins his daughter in dream land.

~~~{Daniel Dale, King of Aivintis}~~~

King Daniel Dale closed the great oak doors quietly behind him as he slipped into the Cathedral. He knew his royal guard detachment was taking up formation outside the Cathedral,  bolstering the forces sent by the King to protect his father during prayer.

Daniel, a powerful figure, strode quickly past the front row of pews, standing quietly while his father prayed at the foot of the golden altar. He held his amulet in hand, displaying the infinity symbol, masterfully painted to resemble the night sky, and he was speaking in the old language.

"Father, I do not mean to disturb you, but I have received word from the Imperial Governor in Mangar."

The praying stopped, and the old man rose. "Hello, my son. What did he say?"

Daniel nodded in acknowledgement to his father. Geoffrey Dale was old, and the top of his head had gone bald, while his white hair remained on the sides, leaving a crown of skin atop his head where the silver crown of Aivintis used to rest. His blue eyes were tired, but hid a cleverness behind them. Even though Geoffrey had abdicated nine years ago, he still ran the country.

"The natives successfully captured Fort Uriel. Governor Melbury predicts that the casualties were catastrophic. If they make another strike such as this one, it is very much possible we will lose the province."

"My son, you must deal with this yourself."

"What?! But Father—"

"My time has come, Daniel."

"No. How?"

"Arkyr has shown me many things these past nine years. I finally understand what must be done. He will appear to you, too, eventually, and we will unite Aivintis once more. You and I both know our time is coming to a close. It will be another hundred years until the silver crown has as much power as it used to. Now go, and let me pass peacefully."

Before Daniel could protest, Geoffrey turned and knelt down in prayer once more. The moment his knees hit the pillow that the priests had set out for him, the sun seemed to blare with intensity. Rays of light shone through the stained glass windows more strongly than Daniel had ever seen before.

The rays of light seemed to envelop the former king, and, when they faded, Geoffrey Dale had disappeared. Daniel left the cathedral with more questions than ever before.

~~~{Geoffrey Dale}~~~

"Geoffrey." The word was spoken softly but clearly, by a deep and commanding voice. The light faded and Geoffrey Dale was now kneeling in a stone throne room.

"Yes, my Lord?" He didn't dare look up out of deference to his god.

"Welcome to my realm, Geoffrey Dale. You have served me well in life, so you shall ve rewarded in death." The god strode forward, his golden armor gleaming.

Arkyr drew his black blade, Dolorem, and rested it on Geoffrey's shoulder. "Geoffrey Dale, King of Aivintis, I herebye name you Archus of Arkyr, and Hand of Theondume." He switched the blade to the other shoulder. "When the silver crown rests upon the head of Daniel Dale after his death, and is usurped by a mortal Lord, then shall you be free of service to me and be allowed entry to paradise." He lifted the blade.

"Rise, Archus Geoffrey."

The former king did as his lord commanded, and beheld that his skin had gone gold. He felt strangely powerful. That's when he noticed the black blade at his side and the white wings at his back.

Before Geoffrey could comment on his new powers, a man with similar appearance entered the room. His eyes were golden, just like Arkyr's, and his hand rested on the pommel of his blade.

"Lord Theondume, Pantala has sent a Krongrah to At'asi Mamakats'i."

The god turned to face the other Archus.

"Good. Geoffrey, I need you to follow Gabriel into Valsora. He will take care of the Krongrah, but you have a task to complete: you must kill William Dale."

"William...Dale?"

"Him and Geoffrey share your name, but they are not your kin. He is being particularly meddlesome with our plans. Make it look like a mugging, use a switchblade, but make sure he dies. Do it at night, he will be wandering downtown Dolorem to reach a meeting. Gabriel will point you in the right direction, it's the big coastal city south of At'asi Mamakats'i. Go now, and return victorious, or not at all."

"It will be done, my Lord."

This was a little story designed to show you how the Aeternus lived before he became the Aeternus, and to show Geoffrey's death and transformation, but I ended up linking the Lerasiverse, as TDS so aptly put it, with Valsora and two RPs I did there.

Ahh your Going through the Lennyverse to connect these and back.

Well, using a relative thickness calculator, the relative armor goes up a helluva lot if you hit it from an angle, and there is a lot of empty space for long rod style APFSDS to shatter, so I am good.

A simple goodwill to one leader to another, with entertainment!

Although the König will not attend due to him being busy, his assistant, Elector Albert von Eschenhofen will be present.

Yep. That's why I am using 50° Angles for my Heavy Tank and my tank probably has a High Velocity Main Gun(Atleast that's what I want).

Turns out a faceless king owns that rock and Jaden must pay rent.

Three pebbles later rent is paid and the king can make a new rock to own.

Look, ghost him.
I am not kidding. Unless he knows the location of each and every one of your friends, and the place you work, he can't keep a pin on you. Just leave for a while, and ask some of your more charitable friends if you can crash at their place for a bit. Keep your residence locked and curtains drawn, and don't leave evidence that you still live there. Or, you can, but not much. I am gonna take it that you are in fact an adult by the fact you have an ex that appears to be maybe stalking you. If you meet him in public, give him the slip. I recommend staying near large crowds and using either carpooling or public transportation, but using your own vehicle is fine as long as he isn't trying to get into it. If he tracks you down, then you have reason to believe he is stalking you and can therefore file for a restraining order.

If this sounds like overkill then you obviously haven't met me before.

If this isn't optimal for you, then just make sure to stick with friends when you go out in public.

This is amazing advice. And it's all super practical too, but Imma try and give you emotional advice as well even though it wasn't asked for!

You gotta remember he's just a man, and you're better than he is. If he still is trying to go after you, it shows how small and desperate of a person he is, and you're much better than he even could be.

So do your best to keep your head held high (I know you're already doing that) even when it feels like everything is going to the dogs. You'll come out of it on the other side a better and stronger person.

I . . . wouldn't put stalking or other creepy behaviour past him but this is his hometown too and I'm gonna say he probably just wants to be closer to family because the other option is terrifying.

He knows the location of, lessee, my grandma's house, a couple of my friends' houses, the game store I play games at (but you can bet thats on hold for now), my church, my mom's work, yadda yada. I don't fear physical violence with him so much as just, this guy is insanely manipulative and has plenty of sob stories to win over my family and friend group with. I've had him blocked for ages but Im scared that might make him more inclined to track me down in person to discuss things. A lot of it isn't rational either, like I heard he was moving back to the mainland (big mainland) and spent the day trying not to throw up because now I was on the same freakin landmass as him.

I don't wanna get the police involved because frankly I don't trust them, but when I'm feeling a little stronger I'll try to get him discredited as a psychologist. Dude should have no trust or power whatsoever.

Looks like I kno what I'm bringing up in therapy tomorrow, God damn.
gonna be offline a bit now

Well, take your time.

Push through this, everybody in the RMB believes in you.

And I wouldn't trust him either, sounds like a two-timing back-stabbing son of a b!tch.
