~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* ~*~

In a former age, great smiths crafted the Griffin Sword. A flawless vision of beauty, it was forged using ancient, mysterious techniques. The jeweled hilt was adorned with the image of a fearsome griffin, and the sword itself was blessed by the goddess Lorminstra for use against her most hated foes: the undead.

But Lorminstra's servant betrayed her trust, breaking the artifact into four parts and giving them to servants of dark gods. Many years later, dark forces invaded the city of Wehnimer's Landing intent on the destruction of Lorminstra's temple. After many epic battles, the brave defenders saved the temple and recovered the pieces of the sword. Four adventurers embarked on a perilous quest that ended with the Griffin Sword re-forged, re-consecrated, and set outside the temple as a memorial to heroism and sacrifice and a conduit of Lorminstra's power of blessing.

And so it remained for several years, until Lorminstra's prophet discovered a flaw in the sword, a taint of darkness left over from its ancient betrayal. An agent of darkness again shattered the sword, scattering the pieces into places of hiding across the cities of Elanthia.

With the sword rendered inert, the Dark Alliance -- a conglomeration of evil gods bent on sowing discord through the land -- rose to rally their followers and exact a terrible vengeance upon those who had opposed them in the past.

The Dark Alliance invaded Wehnimer's Landing, burning the city to the ground in revenge for their earlier defeat. While the Landing was rebuilt, the forces of V'tull attacked the dwarven city of Kharam-Dzu on Teras Isle. After a desperate battle in which adventurers managed to board a V'tullian warship to gather intelligence, one piece of the sword was recovered. In the past week, the action turned to the human empire, where agents of Sheru waged terrible battle against the city of Solhaven and its followers of the light.

Soon the attention of the Dark Alliance will be turned on the elven cities: Ta'Vaalor and Ta'Illistim. But the elite Vaalorian Army, great protectors of the elves, are occupied battling scores of undead to the south. This leaves the borders of Ta'Vaalor unguarded. The Vaalorian army has sent out a call for aid. Will you join the militia to protect Ta'Vaalor and keep the Dark Alliance at bay?

Re: The Griffin Sword Saga

This storyline was one of the bigger ones the game has seen. We're currently active with quests in just about every city and a great deal of merchant/shopping events over the summer.

Except a) it's GemStoneIV now, not GemStoneIII

and 2. it's not free.

7C: And the website isn't what Melissa posted back in 2002. WWW (dot) play (dot) net works - but the rest of it wouldn't apply since - a).

Re: The Griffin Sword Saga

This was an amazing storyline. It's listed under the Griffin Sword Saga or GSS at Krakiipedia. One of the top sites for this.

Krakiipedia

You can check out some others for a lot of our lore too such as:

Order of the Silver Gryphon

and

House of the Rising Phoenix

Library sections mostly.
