I have returned to Britannia.
So, I was in bed when suddenly a glowing blue Codex symbol appeared over me. From it dropped a coin with the symbol engraved on it.
I rushed over to the case I keep my Ankh amulet in, grabbed it, and headed back to the stone circles, where the Ankh and Coin were able to open a moon gate. Of course, I stepped through.
I arrived in Brittania, but my joy was tempered by a general feeling that something was horribly wrong.
Shamino quickly darted up to me, excited to see me again, but said that someone named Lord Blackthorn would likely have noticed the summoning and we had to leave.
Then he shouted "Shadowlords!" and I turned to see three...well, basically Ringwraiths, appearance-wise. The leader (or at least, the one in front) cast some sort of spell to shoot Shamino in the chest with a magical arrow.
Fortunately, the Coin started to glow blue at this point, and the Shadowlords appeared to be frightened off by it.
Shamino told me that we had to get to Iolo's house for help. He wasn't able to walk on his own, but with my support he was able to get us to a hut hidden in the woods.
Iolo helped fix Shamino up a bit, at least enough that he wouldn't bleed out, and explained the current events to me.
Shortly after I returned to Earth, Lord British called a meeting of his Great Council (some lawmaking body, I think?).
First off, the Council sealed all of the dungeons in order to keep all the monsters inside. Good call. Apparently a few get out occasionally, but they're rarely seen during the day.
Next, they raised the Codex from the Abyss. Unfortunately, this disrupted something underground. Lava flowed up, so now the Isle of the Abyss is a massive volcano, and now there's an immense underworld under the entirety of the continent.
Lord British decided to lead an expedition into the Underworld, but only one of his party managed to return. In his absence, a man named Blackthorn took the throne as a regent. Apparently he was doing okay, but then around the time the Shadowlords appeared, he became an oppressive dictator -- apparently they've done something to corrupt him.
Iolo, Shamino, and some of my other allies have formed a rebellion, and decided to summon me for help.
So, now, we'll get Shamino back into good condition, then head out and start looking for ways to undermine the new regime.
