  1. Emulators and Roms

    I got over 4000 roms for various systems (I got FF1-FF6, I dont bother with the others not point I got PS2 to play them on. Also FFX-2 rocks). I might have Zelda 64, like cicero said I will pm you.
  2. Long? Not really. Anyways WONDERFUL ideas. Like the saying goes (in essence to this game), all it takes to be an extraordinary game is that little extra. ___________________________________________________________ EDIT: Yeah Roja I have said that countless times too. More often in General chat when topics get into suggestions from there......I am not a mod so it woul not matter.
  3. Hi, I am New

    1. Internet connection 2. A video card (the better the card the faster the game goes) Other then that not much. IF you use Comcast for your internet provider then you will have to get Entropy's permission.

    Arafin once again awoke in the contraption. He thought he felt the box move again, which would explain why he was now awake. The way the box felt and held silence, he guessed now that it was made of lead. He felt the box move again for a brief moment before it again thumped to the floor. Then he heard a noise...he braced himself feet crouched above him. The lid flung open an Arafin kicked his feet up knocking the man down. Trying to climb out of the box he was lifted and thrown down on the ground. Arafin looked about the room and seen Melantha and three unfamiliar men. The two could have been from the first encounter but without them removing their helmets he would not be able to tell. The biggest of the men walked over to look Arafin in the eyes. "Well, well. So knight what brings you here, hmm?" Arafin not exactly sure how to answer remained silent. The big man kicked him in the ribs. "Take him away and have him scheduled to be hung tomorrow morning. See if you can get anything out of him in the meantime." The two men walked out o the tent for a moment then returned with 4 other men who hefted Arafin up off the floor and blindfolded him. They dragged him to tent not far away, otr atleast it did not seem far away, and tied him to a chair. "We will be back for you later, try not to get tied up." The men laughing hysterically left after removing the blindfold. Arafin searching the room for any way to escape and finding none. Oddly in all the time he had been moved, beat, and thrown he still wore his armor and sword. Arafin began working on loosening the ropes so maybe he could reach his sword. His being left handed only made matters worse. His sword was on the right side of his belt for easy reach across action when fighting. Only problem was that his left hand just might be able to reach the sword if he wore his sword on that side. Unfortunately he did not and so he continued to work on th ropes.

    Arafin awoke in a heep of sweat and shadowed in darkness. He tried to move but found he was bound at his hands and feet. He struggled trying to get them off but to no avail. Rolling aroun he foud that he was in some sort fo rectangular box. It felt as if it could be stones but not exactly. He kicked and yelled and rolled but all that happened was it seemed to grow hotter. Arafin decided to stop moving as he was becoming exhausted and the heat did not help any. LAying on his back he tried to be very still and quiet to see if he could hear anything. Pressing his ear to the almost too smooth stone he listened and heard nothing. It seemed like hours later the box began to move and jump about. Arafin was not sure if the ground was shaking uncontrolably or if this box was mounted on the back of a moving wagon. Again the ground stopped and all was silenced once again. Arafin felt and heard his stomache rumble. He noticed how incredibly hungry he was an wondered how long he had been locked in this box. Hoping to be freed soon or atleast fed he fell back asleep to pass the time.
  7. ReCyling! :-P

    Thats not a good idea....in fact I think it is borderline...I will stop there, you get the picture. Maybe a recycle command that justs destroys the item so its not just lying around (like the 13000 pairs of leather pants just laying on the votd general store floor....thats just stupid and rediculous no reasin for that). That way if you wanted you could just click *recycle all button* and it recycles the bag you on top of.
  8. The Dark Crystal idea

    The only reason I would see to add a flute is if Ent added a bard skill. Level 0 can start with two twig/bones to make music (of course this skill does nothing special). Then continue up till you reach a violin. I would become #1 in this skill if Ent added it just because I usually sit around anyways lol (usually mining though but I could take a ew days off). I see no other reason to add any musical instiruments of any kind unless he did it like that.

    Not knowing what to say to comfort her Arafin kept his mouth shut and rode in silence once again. Arafin wondered what she meant by war and flying monsters. He was now curious but did not wish to bother her. Riding along down the road it began to rain. "Might want to bundle up a little better. I would hate for you to catch a cold." Arafin scanning the landscape felt as if he were ebing watched. He could now see Kilaran Fields in the distance. Drinking some water form his canteen he started to shiver just the slightest. He would increase his pace if not for the puddles in the road. One wrong step could break his horses leg. Patiently traveling down the dirt road in the pouring rain 4 men soldiers jumped out of the pines from boths sides of the road, "You have trespassed in our territory. Any wrong moves and we will be forced to sustain you." Arafin realizing they arrived in Kilaran Fields stood up to talk to the lead soldier, "Excuse me si.....," Arafin fell from the wagon to the ground and as knocked unconcious. Last thing he remembered was an intense pain in the side of his head.
  10. The Wake of A Child

    Arafin was sound asleep. Dreaming of a past winter, when he remembered the company of his best friends atleast 7 years ago before they had all died. The days and battles that his friends had died in and on were enscribed into his mind and soul. Knowing they were in a better place now he had never mourned for any of their deaths as he felt each of their presences inside of him deep down strengthening him. Arafin waking up to a freezing chill remembered he left his window open. Although all the rest of the inn had fireplaces in the rooms his was the only one without. It was cheaper for him that way. His room held a deathening chill that ate right don to the bone. He single sheet did not even begin to stop the cold. Lighting a lantern on his stand next to his bed he walked to the cloet in the back right of the room where the tub was. He lit the coals under the tub adn it started to blaze and warm the water up. The closet had a single hanging lamp in the roof with three vents in the roof. One was to allow the smoke from the coals to escape out of the building. The others he had no idea other then maybe a way to allow rain to seep into the tub for whatever reason-although the two vents were closed he could only think of that, or another way of letting out smoke. Underneath the tub where the coals were burning wa a pit that was about 6 inches deep and had a tube running from the bottom of the tub down though the coals and out the side of the building. The tub had a metal stopper in the drain that you had to manually remov to release the water. Lightin the overhead lamp and dousing the lantern he had first lit, he climbed into the tun after removing his smallclothes. He sat and soaked up the water as he warmed himself. A while after climbing in the water it began to chill even with the buing fire underneath it. Arafin decided to get out. Changing into some new slammclothes and throwing on a spare pair of red breeches, shirt, and coat he sat down on his bed. He got up and closed his window hoping that would help a little. Right after the window finished closing the air became twice as painful then before. Arafin began worying and found his sword next to his bed and unsheathed it. He began to search the room-every nook and cranny. He came back empty handed. Having been a small room he would have seen something from just one spot but he had looked anyways just in case. Losing feeling in his fingers he decided to go inform the innkeeper of the unknown coldness that was creeping over him. As Arafin reached the door to his bedchamber he heard a load scream from down the hall and burst out his door to investigate..... ________________________________________________________ If you want you can role play me in the next part as I am not sure as to what your doing exactly lol. I am blonde so that might be why (not dissing blondes or anything, just it happens to imply or me). Or you can just drop off wherever and I will pick up no biggie lol. But I may do something drasticly out there lol. If I do then just fix it lol. Also the description you give is intense lol. I am glad to have read the entire story .
  11. ...

    Ouch lol. Ok I am back. For future knowledge if I dont reply within 2 days either post for me or something because it means I am prolly busy. I wont mind however I end up lol. You cant always control life. Also if I am still behin let me know lol, I will speed up to about 2 posts each day. Either that or catch me up yourself lol. Either way I wont mind I prolly wont be busy for next week or so. ______________________________________________________________ Arafin awoke to see Melantha already up and about. "I hope you got a little sleep. We have a long day ahead of us and riding two on one horse even till thenext town could be tiresome." Arafin got up and stated strapping his armor on. "Be ready in the next few minutes we leave soon," Arafin waited for her to nid befor contiuning. After they both gathered up there things and smothered the fire they climbed atop the horse, ladies first. ( :wink: ). They began on down the road. The two rode in silence most of the day with a few select words to eah other. When they arrived at a farm Arafin jumped off the dapling and walked to the man working in the fields. "Sir would you happen to have a horse for sale?" The man looked up and blinked, "Well I'll reckon I do. t be over yonder there," the man pointing to a run down old barn. It looked to have been burned many years ago and was falling apart. Arafin started walking towards the barn after the old man. "These horses here be top o'da'line grade A horses here." Arafin almost began laughing hysterically, but he caught himself before he burst. Upon reaching the barn Arafin looked in to see but one horse. It was black and very tall. It looked to be some rich nobles war horse, "How much do you want for it?" Arafin turned to the man who seemed to be appraising how much he had, "How about 100 platinum. Theres incredibly resaonable for a horse like that." Arafin almost losing his temper at the farmer he reached into his purse at his belt and counted out 100 platinum. "It better be worth it you here me. If anything is unsatisfactory I will be back." Arafin knowing very well not even the best horse in the entire Eternal Lands wasnt worth even 50 platinum, but he knew Leantha was getting tired of riding on the same horse, as was he. Arafin was happy to see it already had a saddle and reigns on the horse. He walked around and talked the farmer into selling some food, fresh water, and a wagon to load it on. "Alright my lady, lts be on our way." Melantha smiling took the lead. "That was probably a good idea Arafin. The amrtest one you have made yet," Arafin could not see her face but he did not have to to know she was grinning. Arafin laughing with her, tied the wagon to the black gelding and climb up to take the wagon chair. "Heyah!" Down the road th two went. At this rate thy ought to reach Kilaran Fields sooner then he had anticipated.
  12. A small contest for ladies...

    *puts some rocks under his shirt* ooh me me I know it!!!!
  13. The Wake of A Child

    Arafin pondering more on why she had called him a thief then paying attention to uch else. Thief, I am no thief. Then it hit him, she was nearby when he had snatched that mans purse. The only explantion was that she had seen him take it. "Well, tea would be good, but water suits me well enough. I see you noticed me robbing that poor man. I replaced the money I stole and even added a little extra, so in reality I am a....merchant." Smiling Arafin thought about how that sounded. It did not sound good, but well enough as Lolendalia did not mention much more on the topic. Arafin began telling her his story....the new story. He had lost the castle, but atleast he had done it much better this time. Whether his dream was real or not he no had two stories, and both were true enough. Though Lolendalia did not looked very convinced she listened intently and smiled from time to time. "Well it was great talking to you, and I wish I had time to hear your story, but I must get going. Perhaps tomorrow." Arafin smiling and bowing he said his goodbyes and good nights and left her room. On his way back to his own rooms he noticed someone still downstairs. Not really caring who it was he kept going till he reached his room. "Aww snakelizards, I forgot my armor." Feeling a little stupid about having forgotten the only thing of value of his he removed his clothes and liad his head down to sleep.
  14. Developers please read =P

    The leather pants and leathe boots were needed. I bought leather pants for 20k once and I sold them for 20k. I felt it was stupid to own them really not much point. Condsidering everyone says fihting nekkid is best, or if your losing hp nekkid put on armor and use no weapon. I mean for 20k they are not very good drops....I can make 20 in like 10 minutes prolly even less. So the saying it cut back on you money making....if you got 100 of those a day thats still not much at all. I mean if you got 100 leather pants in one day how could you consider that a rare drop? Rat tails could be considered rare at that rate. I hea people buying 1000 rat tails for 2k each. I would never even fight a rat let alone buy 1k rat tails lol. And also I would consider a tit long a rare drop, get bigger and go fight those monsters.

    hey wow look nothing vulgar.......other then the fact it serves absolutly no purpose. Jimi dont post anymore I forbid you.
  16. guilds/clans to eazy to make

    Sirkillalot the idea is to have a fun and friendly environment who cares how many clans there are? If there were 5000 clans, it still wouldnt even reach 1% of the amount of clan as some of the games I play. The one game I play has over 200,000 clans. You say wow thats WAY too many. Well there is over 100 people in each clan, thats the only requirement is to have 100 people to join. And guess what that means 2 million players. However, there isnt a limit to ho many players you can have in the game as using multiple accounts doesnt help you in any way cause money transactions are not allowed. Only thing clans in that game are good for is war. So just please lay off. level 40 is hard to reach. It takes about 1 million to reach level 40, then you have to come up with 5 million.....thats about 17 days for me just about at th rate I have been playing. So what if its not a lot of money. I honestly really want to know what you got a gainst new clans.....really you have not stated one, I need atleast one or this post is just stupid to ahve been mede.
  17. The Wake of A Child

    (Lol nah its wonderful. I'd comment on it a bit more but I dare not go to far lmao. So I stop while I am ahead ) "Oh yes of course excuse me I acted in haste. My head was throbbing adn the last thing I remembre was being hit by you," he said that last few words slower then the rest as he realized he was more then half naked with only his smallcothes on he grabbed the blankets. "I am sorry, I did not mean to be so rude," his cheeks grew incredibly red with embarassment and he thought he caught a bit of a snicker form the little girl. "Lolendalia, such a beautiful name that is. My name is Arafin d'Arc, Cap....I mean just a common man," he said with a slight bow. Arafin walked to the nearest chair and kind of fell into it more then sat in it. He remembered she said something about a man with a golden something or other. Finding his clothes next to the chair he started to put them on. He finished placing his red coat on and stood up. He noticed Lolendali's dress and noticed she did not seem as young as he had once though. "That is a beautiful dress your wearing. Looks expensive, hope you did not spend all your money on it, there are more important things then looks my ear." Arafin getting a slight nod and smile in return. "So what brings you to the city? You look pretty important," Arafin stood there for a few moments with no reply and Lolendalia seemed preoccupied in thought. "Something wrong my dear? Want something to drink?" Arafin began busying himself with pouring some water in the cups on the table. The pitcher was still cold, Arafin assumed it must be fairly new. As did the bowl of water next to the bed as well. Steam still rising from it made it appear so. The wind seemed blowing a little harder then normal giving Lolendalia an almost godly like look. Pushing the lump in his throat he prompted Lolendalia, "Please sit down, no point in just standing there, you obviously were taking good care of e otherwise the bowl over there would not be there right. I am in your debt, maybe I can one day repay it." Smiling Arafin followed Lolendalai to the two cahirs and sat down. "So about why your here. I am here because I am a merchant...well trying to be. I am kind of hungry to, want to get something to eat?"
  18. channel hunt

    Even if jjk was moving around it never said he could not, nor did he say he was going to stay stationary....... Marc you may have very well been declared winner, but honestly if you ever have played a manhunt game outside of this game (We call it that here in FL, but it may be called something else elsewhere). The people ARE allowed to move, and you ARE allowed not to move. If jjk was not moving then maybe he was afk for a second or two and missed it. But if he was moving from channel to channel, then maybe you actually did miss him. Then again maybe dark was in channel and talked before you did and jjk made the transaction before posting that he had won...... Many possibilities, no point in stating you shoulda won something....you did not. I lose all the time I could be spening on other things BUT I always try and I never EVER win. No biggie though. I have had many losses due to NOT seeing the person or not finding him but I amy have walked by him about 10-20 times.
  19. The Wake of A Child

    Sorry been busy posting this in haste, will make it as graphic as I can with the time I have lol. It will be ok. I recieved a pm from someone who suggested I add some more of Arafin's past life so I will do that in this post. _____________________________________________________________ Arafin awoke to find himself back in his old rooms at the castle. "Ah man what a dream..." Picking himself up off of his red velvet covered bed he hit his head on the canopy overhead. "I will remember not to do that some day." He had done that countless times now, but he had felt a vague familiarity to the bump this time. He hastily went to his red oak dresser on the east side of his room. It was a plain red dresser with one drawer for his clothes adn the second was spcifically designed to hold his armor-in the design of a body the armor fit perectly-and his sword and shield were hung on the wall above the dresser. Other then his bed and dresser the room was empty, filled with only the swooshing sound of the wind soming in the windows on the north and west sides of the room. After he finished locking his belt in place he walked out of his room and knocked down one of his most loyal soldiers. Wow, never did that before except.... "Sorry Captain, I was not aware that you were in there." The soldier getting up and dusting off stood and looked at his captain. Arafin found it odd that he had said those same words on that day as the day the castle was attacked. "Are you not supposed to be pacing the front gates today?" With that Thomas started down the hallway briskly. Arafin also headed down the hall but in the opposite direction. The hallway was filled with guiled tapestries most of them depictly large battles of the kingdom or someo ther kingdom. Arafin's favorite one had a knight in shining armor literally fighting the Gods themselves. He liked it because it was the exact opposite if what he was about. He was not sure why but it seemed he was that man but why he was fighting the Gods he would never know. "Excuse me soldier, can you escort me to the king's conference room?" Arafin turned around to find a large musle bound man with the largest broadsword he had ever seen on the mans back. Why am I dreaming about this day? Am I meant to change it. Coming to the conclusion he had died and is now getting a chance to change the events in his life he says. "First of all I am the Captain-General of the castle, and yes I am heading there myself." The man got a crooked smile on his face and started laughing and smacked his hand on Arafin's back making him loose his breath and start coughing, only making the big man laugh harder. Arriving at the doors to the conference room Arafin pushed them open and found it just as he rememvered it on that dreadful day. "I see you have arived Lord Brutus." The king got a big smile. "Yes your Majesty, I just got here and this wondeful man showed me the way here." The king got a puzzeled look on his face. "What is your name soldier?" Arafin felt more embarrassed now then ever. He felt even more embarrassed this time then the first time. His past victories for the king and everything he had ever done and the king still does not recognize him. "Your Majesty, I am Arafin d'Arc, and I am the person in charge of your army. AS many battles as I have won for you I could only hope you'd know who I was. I understand your reasons. Lots of more important things on your mind My Lord." Arafin turned around and seen Brutus with a regretful look on his face. He was heading for the gaurds rooms in the southern part of the castle. Upon his arrival none of his soldiers were there-only one lone man stood in the room. He stood next to the sheet informing the soldiers where they were to be each day, the man was staring at it hard. "You soldier where is everyone?" The man jumped and turned arounnd and stood up quickly, "Captain, sorry Captain, everyone is out training on the Shiloh plains, they left early this morning." Arafin had not done this the last time and now heknew why all his soldiers were said to have been killed. "Send a courier to the plains immediately. After that gather the gaurds around the castle. All those except for those gaurding the gates and towers. After donig that return here with them. Make sure they are battle ready." Arafin did not wait for a reply till he was headed out the door and towards the conference room again. Arafin barged into the room, "Your Majesty, I jsut got word there is a large army headed this way. I do not have time to explain please return to your rooms." Brutus jumped up, "Wait I can help Arafin. I am not the best, but I am not the worst either. I don't know if ya remember but I was the runner up in the swordsmanship lcontest here last winter." Arafin knew who he was as soon as he had seen him, but he did not have time right now, "Well if your coming lets go I do not have enough time to talk right now." As the two headed out the doors and to the throne room with the king. The kings sleeping quarters were in a barricaded room behind the throne room. It was a regular door but when needed there was a slideable stone wall that slid into place in front of the door. Iwas noticable, but not if you were not looking for it. They left the king in the hands of two trusted soldiers to gaurd the door well Arafin and Brutus headed for the gaurds quarters again. When they got there, three men stood there. "Captain, only twenty three soldiers are left in the castle and all but us are at the front and side gates. I sent a coruier to get the soldiers but he said it would take atleast and hour to arrive there. He also said even the most organized army could not make it back before midday." Arafin knowing that there was no way they would arrive in time even before he gave the orders to send a courier. Arafin also knew that the soldiers that were out in the plains were already dead by this time. Rumor had it before that they were ambushed. Know he knew where they were ambushed. "Good work soldier, you are now third in command, Brutus you are second. I do not know where Thomas is but I am sure he is playing a part in all of this. No one else has the power to send soldiers out on training other them him or I. Soldier hats your name....ok Evensteen, change your uniform then gather the troops at the main gates. Tell them they may die this day, but we must make a last stand. Fate has tricked us." The soldiers were stupified by what just happened, but they obeyed. "Brutus come with me, I must make a trip to the dungeons." Arafin looked at Brutus who had the look of bloodlust in his eyes and a huge grin on his face. Arafin could do nothing but the same. Arafin told the dungeon gaurds-not many people knew there were any-to head to the main gates. Retrieving the keys he started going down explaining to the men if they helped that they would be set free and be payed well for thier services....no one refused. Arafin gave them all swords and armor and sent them too to the front gates. "They may not be trained at all, but they will have to do. Most have been here so long anything is better." Arafin and Brutus laughed and headed out of the dungeons. "Ok we have over 100 men. To be exact 134 men. They don't stand a chance at defeating the army thats coming but I plan on trying," Arafin explained. "So we heading to the front gates right....?" "No, we are headed for the western gates," Arafin waiting for the frown on Brutus' face, "The main force is attaking the side gates. They are expecting more men to be gathered there. I told Evensteen that I would take care of the side gate gaurds." Making it to the side gates the two tower gaurds came and rported they seen a large army to the west. "I am aware already soldier. Head to the main gates and amke a stand. All of you go now!!" The soldiers darted off down the courtyard towards the front of the castle in the south. Arafin and Brutus stood alone on the ground just outside the side gates. They knew what they were doing...suicide. Arafin felt the breeze better then ever, the very life of the earth in it as well. He felt every hair on his body swish with the wind, his long hair flowing behind him, the clouds looked heavy and it began to rain. Every trickle sent a sensation throghout his body. The cold water droplets made his body return to normal, but he felt hotter then ever. The long expand of land on this side of the castle stretched about 10,000 yards to the woods and was nothing but open fields with knee-high weeds all the way up to the very edge of the castle walls. The walls shone with white brilliance, almost as if it were made of steel and was reflecting the sun, but Arafin knew better the make of the walls-all solid stone. Brutus seemed to be feeling the same way. Then out of nowhere about 25 archers lined the walls. Then more and more kept coming. Arafin and Brutus being eaten alive by curiosity looked at each other. "Evensteen walking out the side gate doors replied to their puzzled faces, "When sending the courier I also sent about thirty more, payed well mid you, to gather the village people and anyone else they could." "Evensteen, you deserve your rank. If I could I would upgrade you to my rank, but there is only one of me allowed." All three men laughing they turned at the sounds emitting from the woods. Shouts screams and battle-cries. "Here they come men," Arafin shouted, "don't shoot till you see the white of thier eyes." Arafin scanned the men lining the walls. Men, women, and children were up there he noticed. Not understanding why they would be here in the first place but was grateful for it none-the-less. Arafin also noticed while he was scanning the walls, men were rushing from the gates two at a time and lining themselves for a charge attach. Evensteen seen Arafin's eyes and ansered, "I have men in the woods to the north and south ready for ambush. Even if we lose this battle, it will be in the history of all lands for a long time. I also have men traveling on horseback going far to the east and waiting till they see the army pass them then they will lay in wake till they attack." Arafin congradulating Evensteen on his wuick wits thanks him as well. Men poured from the woods...not men, but men. They looked human but at the same time savages of some far away land. Arafin drew his sword and Brutus did the same. "Alright men wait till the third line of arrows fire then charge." The sounds of bowstrings being released produced hundreds of arrows over the walls and into the charging enemy. Then another....then another. "CHARGE!!!!" Arafin did not look to see if the rest of the army was behind him. Arafin ran as fast as he could and noticed Brutus right next to him. Arafin crashed into the enemy sword first taking out two men. He parried another sword and loobed the mans head off, the head rolled tripping two men who were quickly impaled with a soldiers sword. Arafin fought close to Brutus helpngi him out and Brutus doing the same when he could. Arafin fought for what seemed hours. He glanced to the skys from time to time and prayed for protection from his enemy. Arafin looked to the sky this time to notice that the sun was more in the western part of the sky then eastern relaying to him it was about three hours past midday. It was then Arafin realized that the men who were in the Shiloh Plains were long dead. The bowmen that lined the walls earlier were now out on the battlefield, swords drawn. They must have ran out of arrows and came into battle after they were out. Arafin had to watch his step as not to trip over dead bodies. "FALL BACK TO THE CASTLE!!!!!," Arafin shouted to his men and men from out of nowehre started picking up the shout and falling back. Arafin spotting Brutus not far away stood next to him and fought the enemy to give his men tiem to return to the castle. The two realizing 90% of the army was in the walls they turned and ran for the walls. They flew past the side gates and headed for the inner walls of the castle. The caslte was built to stop enemy sieges, but not men when they were drastically outnumbered, but it would serve a new purpose today....victory. Arafin not paying attention to time anymore fought with pride and talent. Brutus had been hit with two arrows-one stuck out of his leg and one in his left arm, but neither seemed to be effecting his performance. Arafin felt exhausted, and his heart felt about to break out of his chest but he fought on at the same rate hoping it would end soon. Arafin fighting near the innergate, he noticed a larger sized man fighting, larger then any other man on the battle field except maybe for Brutus who was about the size of three men. Afafin headed for him and the man swung a huge axe at him as he rolled uder it and brought up his sword into the things chest. The sword stuck there for a second and the creature turned to stone. What the.....? Arafin picking up the axe began to fight again. He quickly found another sword to fight with. After a few moments went byu Arafin scanend the groudn where the creature had been and found his sword lying there in a pile of dust. Arafin raced for his sword, roled and picked it up and swung and the nearest person knocking the mans sword of of his hands and Arafin ended his life. Arafin starting shouting to fall abck into the castle intself. His men slowly retired to the main hall in the caslte to fight. Arafin told the men to line themselves on the stairs-being the only way up to the higher floors, once again because of the castles anti-seiging design. Arafin trotted into the throne room to see the king sprawled on the floor dead, the soldiers who were suppoed to be gaurding the door layed on the floor with knives in thier hearts. Arafin appoached each in turn to find all were very dead. "Brutus we can't let this slip to the other men, it will despirit them." Brutus nodded in response. Looking around one last time, Arafin spotted the end of a cloak sticking out from behing the kings chair. "Brutus shut that door and wait outside if you would." Brutus htinking he understoon-he did not but it did not really matter-he closed the door behind himself. "Come out from behind their Thomas. I know its you." Thomas popped out from behind the chair, sword drawn. "He had no respect for his people. We've done everything for him and all he does is bask in the glory." Arafin shook his head, "If you wanted him dead, why not just have him assinated, no sense in killing all these innocent souls, Thomas." Thomas laughed, "Innocent...? These men you call innocents have sinned, no one has ever made it through life without commiting a sin because as soon as your born you start sinning." Arafin did not really understand but he knew what he had to do, "Then I only have one word for you...REPENT!" With that Arafin picked up his sword and engaged Thomas. Arafin took the first swing and Thomas countered it and swung for Arafin's head. Arafin being highly skilled in swordsmanship, dodged it and had an opening to kill Thomas. The world slowed to nothing, thousands of thoughts rushed into Arafin's head. To kill or be killed. Thomas realized he was going to die and had already started his swing to kill Arafin if Arafin misses for an unknown reason. Arafin had to decide and had no space for failure. Time sped back up and Thomas lost his head and Arafin was hit just above his left knee as he was jumping out of the deadly blow. Standing up Arafin fell back over and could not get back up. The gash in his left leg was deep and was unbearable. He tore off a strip of Thomas' red cloak and wrapped it around his leg. He hobbled up and began hoppin to the door. Brutus opened it up as Arafin knocked on it. Brutus seen the new dead body, "Oh, I did not know. I am sorry. Let me help you." Arafin put out his hand, "No tell the soldiers to retreat from the castle. Tell them that the king is dead and his dieing words were to run and live to see another day elsewhere. Then if you wish come back and help me to my horse in the stables." Brutus nodded in acknowledgement and ran off. The last thing Arafin remembered was hitting his head on the floor and hearing the words "Please let him wake.." ____________________________________________________________ Waking up he seen the little girl who had ran into him from the banister. He jumped up not knowing here he was and drew his sword from his belt that was now on the floor. "What are you doing? Why am I here?" Not knowing exactly what had happened, Arafin was deathly scared and tripped over his armor on the floor and lost his sword in the fall. The little girl at the window stood up and the commotion and said, "Calm down. I can explain..."[/i]

    Man I have been really busy lately, I will be posting tomorrow though . I would right now, but I got things to do. Hope to get back on track soon lol.
  21. Newbies in underworld

    Yes they need to go to the underworld in the same random places we all go. Only thing is maybe anyone under level 10 will get and arrow to show them the way to the gate back the the Eternal Lands. And they get a message like "you have died and are now in the underworld. Follow the arrow to return to Isla Prima. In the future this arrow will not help you, so try to remember the way on your own." Or something like that lol.
  22. I am short on time this past week and I am short on time right now as well, so I will be short and sweet. I also did not read any of the previous posts so if my suggestion has been suggested then too bad. Halflings-shortest of the races, and small. They would just be that....the smallest Fairies-you can change size to just bigger then halfling or taller. Naturally very skinny Vampires-Just cause it would be cool lol Half-Elf/Half-Human-We all know elves do not have sex in just their own race, and as for humans....well all I have to say is....men lol Gnome-short as a halfling, green, kinda skinny, walk funny These are all up for change for all I care just stating some things. As for more dtails into the races I am only adding the following, the others are just self-explanitory more or less. Fairies-Created by the Goddess Aluwen to protect and preserve. She developed them so well that they began thinking by themselves and although they were created by Aluwen and feel a longing to her they are not bound by her powers and can do what they wish freely because even Aluwen understands life should be preserved. Gnomes-Mostly living in mountainous regions they are highly intellegent. No one is quite sure how they came into the world. Rumor has it they blew themselves upon the world after a failed experiment. Halfling-Once humans these people were short. They were banished from the human lands because of their height. They all gathered in a small concetrated area and as time progressed, their bodies became much different. After over a century in the making these short people started to wander into other regions and no one knew where they came from, only that they were called themselves halflings. There thats the best I can do for now lol. g2g
  23. The Wake of A Child

    Arafin, still groggy, stopped in place to glance around at the beautifully built iinn, even though he had the worse room it was still a nice inn. The common room was filled with about 13 wooden tables all lined with chairs, on each of the four sides, with a back that curved to support the back better. There were only three people in the common room-a maid and two men at the same table he liked to sit in. The maid was dresed in the inn livery, mostly green, with a tough of white here and there, with lace lining the bodice, the length of the dress ran to just above the floor. It seemed almost made perfectly for the woman. The men in the corner were dressed in what looked to be something a lesser noble or a well fairing merchant might wear. Thre breeches and coats were all blue, with white lace on the cuffs, the neck, and running down the length of the jacket with the buttons, and the pance were jsut plain old blue. The man wore a pin that caught Arafin's eyes. It was gold and shaped in a circle. He thought he had seen it somewhere, a dream perhaps. Whatever it was it mad him worry. After drinking a cup of honey-sweet tea, he headed off to get some things to go out on the town. As he approached the stairs the little girl from the market crashed into him. Arafin fell back and *blam* hit hishead on a stool next to the door of the inn and drifted off...

    Knowing he himself was too dumbfounded to have remembered to get any food before departing accepted the bread gladly, "Thanks my Lady. I will savor it." He sat there eating the bread for a good while. He was taight that when rations were low eat slower and you will be full quicker. A strategy to sav food, and quench your hunger. However, if you do this for too long you shorten your enrgy level and become weak in both mind and body. Arafin built a small fire to keep himself and Melantha warm during the night. Having done that he got up to search the surrounding area. He could not see much in the way of danger but it was too dark to tell. Rumors of Gargoyles traveling this far were not unheard of in the least, and even though Arafi could take on a Gargyole face to face, it was dark he was tired, and he might even be sleeping when it approaches. Keeping all of this to himself as not to cause an great alarm he went and layed down to go to sleep. "G'night my Lady. Pleasant dreams."

    "Hello their my Lady. Why yes sure I can give you a ride to Kilaran Fields. In fact I was heading there myself." Helping the women up on the horse he noticed she had the most luxurious eyes he had ever seen. Pushing the lump in his throat back he ask, "So where do you be coming from my Lady. Hope it isnt too far from here. I'd hate for a pretty lady like you to have walked this far by yourself. The roads are dangerous nowadays." She did not seem to here Arafin. She was looking to the sky for something. Maybe she wasnt in the talking mood. Arafin went back to looking at the wodnerous scenery on the sides of the road. The trees were of every shade and of none. He could hear the critters in the woods running around, and what seemed to be the sounds of birds chirping and squirrels chattering. It was peaceful out here, but he had not been out on the road during the night, and it would not be long beofre it would be too dangerous to ride the horse because he might not see a hole in the road till Twilighters leg was broken. He cleared his mind and set the image of the forest in his head to keep his cool serenity.
