LEGEND OF THE FALLEN BEAST
The day of reckoning has come at last - and it seems this time, the devil has come a knocking on the Carna's door.
For a long while, the tension in The Menagerie has grown, rising rapidly with each passing day. Most of the inhabitants have sensed the conflict reaching a head, and rumors of a war spread throughout the rings like wildfire. Nothing had officially set this rumored war in order until of course the Carna and the Fulsi, once allied together under the same flag, fighting side by side against the weakening Bestia and Fallen, found themselves as bitter enemies rather than allies. Under the new command of Alpha Legend, the FulsiRing betrayed it's alliance and now stands hand in hand with Alpha Skye of the FallenRing.
The reasons for such a change remain a mystery, but the Carna have spread snarling rumors that the female Skye used her feminine charms to guile away the weak and incompetent Legend. With no allies to turn to though, these words of spited and bitter tongues have fallen on deaf ears.
A week has passed, and dire consequences have befallen the entire Menagerie. The tension has reached it's breaking point...
Outraged at the betrayal, Alpha Manic has ordered an all out attack on the enemy, the two Rings and the monstrosity that are the Bestia. The battle that ensued was a complete bloodbath. Countless lives were lost, thousands were injured, and all were in some way scarred forever, cursed to remember this, the bloodiest day, that the Menagerie has ever seen.
Surprisingly, it was the Carna who faltered, the murderous Ring failing to hold against their desperately outnumbered odds. It was not a landslide victory - but it was a victory none the less, that saw the Carna limping in a hasty retreat.
As the Carna were on the verge of being slaughtered completely, the Keepers brazenly stepped in, wielding tranquilizer guns fitted instead with lethal injections, evening the odds and giving the Carna a chance to escape.
Another week has passed since the terrible war ended with the Carna's bitter defeat. The Bestia have fallen completely apart...we are calling this battle the Legend of the Fallen Beast, in commemoration of the heroic victors - for Legend, who was the savior of the Fallen, coming through as a last minute ally. To the Bestia - oh, the poor fated souls. Their ranks have been completely decimated. The few antrho's who survived still find refuge within the ranks of the Fallen.
Strange reports of various test subjects of the Menagerie are pouring in - strange new abilities are popping up. Once known only to appear in the Bestia, these abilities are increasing the strength of the human Shifters, making them even more so a force to be reckoned with. The Keepers are sure to ante up and increase the Shifters struggle to survive in the Menagerie.
Kidnappings, disappearances and horrifyingly new experiments are becoming all the more common.
