Hey guys. I can understand why no one is posting. There's no direction to the story right now, and it can be quite a burden to come up with something on your own, especially given that most of us are zounds busier than we used to be. MM HCMed me with an idea, and I think it's pretty darn good.
Quote:
Since we don't really have a real "bad guy" to go after (with the absence of Dean) I thought of introducing three spirits.  According to the old tomes they are regarded as the Spirits of Anger or Hatred.  Their real names have been forgotten but they are known now as The Maniac, The Mute, and The Martyr.  In their former lives they were humans who served the cause of the Forsaken Ones but were hunted and killed after the first war.  The Maniac  is a twisted and tortured soul who was used by Grathamel (the Demon lord) and possessed by hundreds of demons.  His human soul is unrecognizable and mixed with the hundreds of evil demon souls.  The Mute was a spell caster whose mouth was bound together to stop his evil words.  They say he trained his mind in the after life to make up for his lack of speech.  The Martyr was almost unable to be killed.  Nearly invincible.  He was stoned, hung, stabbed, poisoned, and burned.  Just before his head died he made a vow to return and enact his vengeance.
I figure they'll be looking for human hosts to attach to and that may be where I can bring those magic hunters (also known as Soul Rippers) in.

Granted, it's not set in stone, and not everyone will have to take place in the story (I have my own plans in store right now), but I thought this would be a good starting point to get some ideas flowing.

I had a thought for the Main Land.  How about we name it Terra Bellum which is rough Latin for Land of War.  I think it kind of fits.  Unless of course someone else can come up with something better.

I have two posts on February 6 -- one in the RP thread and one in the OOC thread -- that sum up pretty well what we know happened. Much is left to the characters, so feel free to write whatever you please about Sendon's fate at the end of Chapter Three.

You had possessed an elf's body and were looking to regain your powers. You ended on a confrontation with Dean in this post:
Quote:
Are we ever going to go anywhere?

"Quiet Elf! I know where we are going. His signal is getting closer and closer."

Whose? The time mage? The one whose son you've blatantly corrupted?

"No...Another one of my former adversaries...The one known as Asmodean."

Asmodean? You mean the Asmodean?

"Yes...you know of him?"

Yes...in your absense he had begun an unholy crusade against the world, angered at his banishment from the Royal Order of the Supreme Magi...

"So...thats why I've been having these feelings as of late. We'll see just how powerful he's gotten"

"Just how powerful I've gotten? I'll show you" came a dark, sinister voice from behind him.

The Unholy One slowly turns around, and there stands Asmodean. But no longer does the power of the light radiate from him, now nothing put pure evil radiates from his once righteous body. The air begins to waver, and the sun seems to shrink in fear at the meeting of the evils. Not since the reunion of the Forsaken Ones had the world felt such a tremor.

"Hello...Sendon."

"WHAT?! What did you just call me!"

"Yes...You heard me. Hello, Sendon."

"HOW..DO...YOU..KNOW...THAT?"

"I know all! I know everything about you! I know from your fall to greatness! It was you who caused the evil the world has seen today! And Now, I will be the one to destroy you, and claim my spot as the emporer of the world!! History will remember me, not you for the cause of suffering! NOW YOU DIE!"

Asmodean waved his hand and The Unholy One flew back, the frail possessed elven body being crushed against the tree. He slowly began to lose consciousness. The world around him begin to dim. He heard the mockery of Asmodean as he began to pass out, possibly away. Suddenly, he felt lightheaded and rejuvinated. He felt...Powerful, a feeling he had not felt in over a decade.

Fight him, you spawn of hell! Fight him now!

Not stopping to ask what happened, he leaped up and tackled Asmodean, catching him by surprise. He quickly began reciting the rituals that he had learned so many millenia ago. Dark magicks began swirling around The Unholy One. He reached into the air and grabbed a mass of swirling energy, and it quickly shifted into a wailing being. A soul of one of his victims. He tossed it at Asmodean, which sent him reeling over in pain. Souls after endless souls began swirling around Asmodean, wailing a high pitched scream, which would drive any mortal man insane.

Asmodean, roaring, shook them off and charged at The Unholy One. Now was no time for magic. It was simple hand to hand combat. Asmodean seemed to grow larger, as he delivered a massive punch to the gut of The Unholy One. The fragile elven body shivered from the impact. Asmodean began delivering punch after cold punch to the Unholy One, leaving him bruised and battered.

"THE IRONY IS TOO GREAT TO BE IMAGINED! THE GREATEST NECROMANCER THE WORLD HAS EVER KNOWN, DEFEATED BY SIMPLE VIOLENCE! NOW, YOU DIE!"

Asmodean raised his arm, preparing for what would be the final blow. Then, he just fell over, an arrow protruding from the back of his head. The Unholy One looked up, and saw a shady character reloading his crossbow. Using the agility and prowess of the elven body he possessed, he managed to retreat into the forest, an arrow narrowly missing his head.

Ah, I remember now. Me and RSF had aim convos about killing off Asmodeans character in his absense.

Now that I look back on this, it was great idea, but poorly written out. Ugh.

I'd sort of like to continue this, but where would we pick up ? We can't just jump straight into a new storyline arc without at least making somewhat of a transition from this one to a new one.

This is kind of a reminder for others to post and kind of a note for me, but I need others to come in and post. There are summaries and overviews both on this page and the first (warning: that one's quite long). If you're running out of ideas for stories, start collaborating again or ask one of the Glade mods -- MM or myself -- for tips. Eventually, I plan to have Mordikai resurface and travel with one of you guys (or groups), so start posting. I don't plan to have him meet Edwin for a while, instead opting to have him actually collaborate with you guys since I don't feel I do that enough. He'll also keep what has happened a mystery for a while as he travels, so hopefully it'll make for a good read.

But, first, you guys have to post.

Edit: You can always start with a fresh character, Gorman. It doesn't make much sense to jump into the future, though, because it's wide open what you can do right now since no storylines have really been developed for Chapter Four as of yet.

As for transitions, it's much the same thing. I'll help anyone who has trouble with ideas for transitioning. Just shoot me an HCM.

To keep everyone up to date, I'm currently working on revamping the summary to be a bit more coherent as well as getting it up to date. I also plan to release a much shorter summary for those who might want to jump into the thread but have no idea what's going on.

Edit: If I were to post the large summary as I write it, would that help more people become interested in this again? I probably won't finish it until the summer, but I'll keep people updated as to where in the thread I am right now. The smaller, more accessible summary should come soon after I finish the larger one, which will probably end up being 60 pages or so in Word when I finish it this summer.

Updates:
4/23 - Page 22 of LHW: gathering in the northern village
4/29 - Page 28 of LHW: right after Vadskye drains the Unholy One with his ruby

Also, things might be busy for many people right now, Gorm, what with finals and all. It may be summer before people feel like posting again.

It's probably obvious by now, but I stopped working on it for a while. I'm starting again, but you guys need to keep me accountable.

Edit: So, uh, yeah. I remember now why I had stopped before. I'm currently trying to break through the roadblock that is the HC time warp. I'll post that portion of the summary when I'm finished with the time warp to receive input on the subject from RSF, Mvass, MM, or anyone else who may happen to know what exactly was posted here. I'm including all I can remember, but I think my memory's a bit spotty.

My memory isn't the greatest either.  I kind of remember how it went but not word for word.

Mighty Mage, Dean, and I think Gorman (I could be wrong) were in the basement of a library researching the Unholy One.  That's where they find out that he is one of the Forsaken, how many there were, the back story, and more info about the stones and weapons.

I believe that's where they discover the door to the Master Emerald room which RSF later tricks Gorman into opening.  There was a lot of talking and some stuff happens.  Then everyone heads back upstairs.  The room fills with darkness and everyone thinks it's The Unholy One back for revenge but it turns out to actually be Shadowcaster.  The ice mace doesn't due anything to him but smeone (I can't remember which character) thinks quick and blasts a hole through the ceiling letting in  enough piercing sunlight to weaken Shadow allowing everyone to escape.
Then I think the Unholy one shows up outside and there's some kind of showdown.

I believe the rest of the story continues there.

That brilliant character was Deimos.

And your recollections seem to be correct.

You sure it wasn't Dean that blasted the hole? That's how I remembered it, anyway, but I could be wrong. I do vaguely remember finding the door now that you mentioned it. I'll scan the thread and make sure the characters don't first glimpse it later on and then I'll add it. Pretty sure it was just MM and Dean in the library, though.

I didn't really notice it the first time through as much, but there are a lot of continuity issues (based on either people not reading others' posts and such) and little niggling things (such as Consis' deleted posts about Silver) that I'm having to kind of iron out. I'm not changing or deleting anything, just adding a few details that might make the explicit parts of the story make sense.

Currently, the Unholy One's about to escape from RSF's time trap.
