Not being able to even operate a cell phone, I wouldn't be interested. Stuff like that is just too advanced for me. My family is too far behind in technology. I had to teach myself how to use a computer because neither of my parents can use one.

I have the computer all to myself though. :D

Don't forget that when I first came here, I was just as bad as Zephyr. I helped kill one good RP and almost killed another.

But all I can say is...

The Dark Wyrms are making a mess of the bystanders and soldiers, melting them with their acid left and right. The Efreets are busy burning them, the Nagas are summoning serpents and throwing spells left and right and anything that moves. The Gazers are draining their victims and pummeling them with spells. The Rakshasa are parrying attacks and absorbing all magic thrown at them. The Drake Lords are busy scorching anything that dares attack them. The summoned creatures are fighting harder than they ever had before, battling against the witch's creatures with great fury.

One of the ogres locks his gaze on one of the two efreets and begins pummeling it with cold spells. The other ogre concentrates on a Dark Wyrm, attacking it with kill spells. The dryads split up, each taking on a Naga, knowing the Rakshasi with just absorb their spells. The ice lizard successfully injures one of the efreets but in the process, it is blasted apart by the Efreet's fiery breath. The Spectre turns its attention from one of the Efreets to a Rakshasa, effectively clawing it several times and avoiding it magical blasts.

One of the drakes takes on a gazer searing it with its breath and pummeling it with fire spells. The other drake takes on a Dark Wyrm, attacking it with various spells and fiery breath, and avoiding its acid spray. The two basilisks gang up on a gazer and soon turn it to stone. They then split up; one going after an Efreet, and the other after naga. The centaurs each take on a Rakshasa, striking each with their swords and avoiding running quickly past them to avoid any magical blasts.

The fireflies on the inn continue to swoop down and attack the witch, every now and then successfully stinging her. The aranea had been attacking her with webs and spells, but was fried by one of her spells and is now dead. Arrow Swift is just now waking up after having too much ale. Vincent is nowhere to be found and is thought to be dead. Tel is about to climb onto the roof, when a cloud of bats appears and hovers directly behind him. On the cloud can be seen Shadow Wolf and the Demon.

Schostas feels he should help fight one of the Dark Wyrms seeing as he and Shadow Wolf had successfully destroyed the one in the inn. Schostas takes an opportunity to surprise attack the Dark Wyrm when it turns its attention to the drake attacking it. He jumps on top of it and drives his black long sword into its head and straight through. He then proceeds to pull the sword towards him and starts tearing the Dark Wyrm in half, literally. Acid and blood erupt from the growing gash in the Dark Wyrm and it soon expires in a vast pool of it. The aurora around Schostas protects him from the acid. He then pulls out his sword and turns his attention to a Rakshasa.

He hates these creatures with his every being because he lost several of his closest friends in the late Queen's private army to these creatures. With a howl, he rushes it and catching it off-guard, drives his sword deep into it. The Rakshasa counters by hitting him with a spell while he is up close. The aurora around his body absorbs the spell, leaving the Rakshasa with an astonished look on its face. Schostas can't help but smile in return. With his cloaks, he possesses the same magical absorption power that the Rakshasa has.

Schostas then starts twisting the sword around a bit inside the Rakshasa. The acid from the Dark Wyrm that was on the sword starts eating away at the Rakshasa's insides, causing it roar out in pain. The Rakshasa counters his torture with a shockwave spell. This spell is too powerful for Schostas to completely absorb at so close a range and it send him flying backwards 30 some feet into the side of the inn. With a crack, the inn wall stops him, knocks the air out of him, and he falls to the ground. When he manages to get back up, he finds that he is still holding his sword. Looking to where the Rakshasa was, he sees it lying on the ground dead, bleeding heavily from the gash in its abdomen and slowly decomposing from the Dark Wyrm's acid.

He gives off a laugh at seeing this and then looks around for another creature to attack. Locking his eyes on a Naga, he howls and charges into the fray again. The drake attacking the Dark Wyrm turns its attention to one of the Drake Lords. Now that the one Rakshasa was dead, the one Centaur went after the other drake lord.

OOC: The rest of you can pick what you want to fight. Its up to you, not me.

OOC: This is going to be very long, but a lot of it is dialogue. I tend to prefer putting spaces in between my quotes unlike those others that just run them all together to save space.

IC: As they reach the top of the mountain, it becomes apparent that something is wrong in the valley. Belmont can see a slight haze rising from it. As he gets his first clear view of the valley, he lets out a sound of surprise and stops the cart. There is an ever so slight smoky haze in the air over the entire valley, and the same familiar scent of carrion meets both their noses. But it is the city itself that quickly catches his attention. This isn't some small outpost or even a large army fortification like Petoria had made it sound. No, it is a large city in the center of the valley taking up at least a full mile in every direction, with a huge wall surrounding it. On the other side of the city is a massive lake several times bigger than the city. He has always lived in the countryside and has never seen a city or even a lake of this size before until today.

Belmont: "It appears that this valley has been attacked as well! But I...I have never seen a city so big!! What is this place called?"

Putting Burlap out with the use of a forced sleep spell, Petoria carefully props Burlap's head up with a sack of rations and then makes her way to the driver's seat beside Belmont. When she looks down at the valley, she gasps at what she sees.

Petoria: Oh, my god!!! Turin has been attacked!!!"

The city is familiar to her, but the new view she is seeing is not. The main walls around the city are crumbling and some sections are missing altogether, with people working on rebuilding them at different places. Guards are still pacing the narrow walkways on top of the walls, but there are a lot less than she remembered there being before. Some of the internal buildings also have crumbling walls and some are totally collapsed. People are working on them as well. Smoke is billowing up from different sections of the city and there appear to be mass graves being created half a mile from the city.

That leads her eyes off into the rest of the valley. She can see that many of the nearby farms have been burned to the ground as well as the crops. She tells Belmont to continue on and they make their way down the mountain and into the valley. They first come across a similar plain to the one on the other side of the mountain and the same familiar stench of death. Soon they begin seeing bodies lying on the road and in the fields around them.

Petoria: "Dear, god!!!! What has happened to these lands?!! It seems like a massacre!!!"

Belmont: "Should we stop and collect some more weapons?"

Petoria: "Absolutely not!! We must get Burlap some help as soon as possible! Let's hurry on to the city!"

Within an hour, they make it to the city gate. Recognizing one of the city officials who is talking to a guard outside the wall, she calls out to him.

Petoria: "Winston!! Get over here!! I have an injured man!!"

Winston: (Looking over at the woman yelling his name) "Why, it's Petoria!" (Begins running towards cart) "I'm coming, ma'am. I'm coming." (Reaching the cart, he looks up at her) "Who's been hurt?"

Petoria: "It was Burlap!" (Pointing to the figure lying in the back of the cart) "We need to get him to an alchemist quickly!" (Looking back to Winston) "Where's Teri?"

Winston: (Looking into the back of the cart) "Burlap! That is a sad development to say the least." (Looking back to Petoria) "Teri is inside with her patients. She has a lot of them now. (Looking to some of the guards) "Men, carry this man to the alchemist's lodge."

The guards carefully lift out the wounded man and take him inside the city.

Petoria: (Turning her attention back to Winston) "What the blazes has happened here?!"

Winston: (He gets a grim look on his face) "We were attacked by both the Ironclads and the Solarans almost at the same time. I'm not surprised really, seeing as we are so close to both of their borders, right in between them. It was bound to happen sooner or later and their sheer numbers overwhelmed us at first. However, the fates were with us. Once they noticed each other around the sides of the city, most of them stopped attacking the walls and started fighting each other." (Gives off a chuckle)

"They both got the idea that our city held a vantage point over the other, so that's why they both attacked us. (Gives off another chuckle) It was our good luck that they both decided to attack on the same day. Their own greed for the city lead them to challenge each other for it. When they had weakened each other considerably, we sent soldiers out to drive them back to their borders and it worked." (Her gets a slight smile on his face)

Petoria: (Looking confused) "Which directions did they attack from?"

Winston: (Motioning to the plains) "Why, they attacked us from the plains on either side of the city. It's not likely they would come from the Gulf of Jazen. Why?"

Petoria: (In a slight puzzled panic) "Not from the mountain either?"

Winston: "I hardly think they could come over the mountain with much success on that little roadway. What are you getting at?"

Petoria: (Looking around in confusion and then back at Winston) "If that was what went on here, then what the hell happened on the other side of the mountain on the Green Plains?" (Points to the mountain)

Winston: (He flushes over with bewilderment) "What is this that you speak of?"

Petoria: (A look of total surprise flashes over her face) "You didn't know about it?! There are thousands of bodies of dead soldiers from the armies of Ironclad, Sol, and Kylen lying all over the place on the Green Plains and all of the farms and cottages over there have been completely leveled and scorched out of existence. There was a battle for sure, but the scene shows that much more took place than just that."

Winston: "What do you mean by that?"

Petoria: "What I mean is that the farms and crops weren't just burned down. They were literally blown apart by some sort of strong magic. The same can be said of many of the soldiers. Many of them have scorched armor and are lying in unnatural positions. It's almost as if they were thrown through the air by a large amount of released energy, which also roasted them. I surmise that an extremely powerful mage has passed through the plains. I found several areas on the plains where the grasses of the field have been totally burned away the ground scorched badly. Probably firestorm spells, which would explain the large amounts of haze over the Green Plains."

Winston: (Eyes wide with horror, he staggers about a little, and looks at the ground as he speaks) "Is this what you say true?!!!"

Petoria: (A look of concern appears on her face) "Yes, it most definitely is. But..." (Looking daggers at Winston) "I know that look on your face, Winston! You do know something don't you?! Tell me!!!"

Winston: "About four days ago. We heard some loud booming sounds coming from the other side of the mountain. We were going to send out someone to check up on it when the Ironclads and Solarans attacked us. Then we forgot all about it. But during the battle, a guard noticed a dark shrouded figure on a horse riding away across the plain in the direction of the Ironclad border. Just before he passed out of sight at the wooded hills that lead to the border, he dismounted the horse and set it free upon the plains. He then disappeared into the woods."

Petoria: "Damn!!!! That must have been the mage! Well, it's too late to do anything about it now. He would be dozens of miles away from here by now in the heart of Ironclad territory. (Looking back at the cart and remembering the load they brought)
That reminds me. I have a load of weapons, arrows, and such that Belmont and I managed to salvage from the fallen soldiers. They are at your disposal. We also brought a large load of potions that we made together and they too are for Turin to use. We shall stay in the city for a while and help in any way that we can."

Winston: "Thank you most graciously. You can unload your items inside and find a room at the Turin Arms Inn."

Winston sets to work sending men to the Green Plains to help with the bodies and get them buried. Belmont and Petoria go inside, unload their supplies, send the horse and cart to the stables, and head towards the inn.

OOC: Sorry for length. I wanted to break it into two posts, but couldn’t find the best place in it to do so. Info travels slowly to Turin and it may be a few days before they find out about the mutiny.

OOC: The servant's name is Belmont. He has a part too. But servant is okay for the moment. I want his name used later. I am controlling two characters, soon to be three maybe. I might let the one introduced in this post die from his injuries. However, not before he tells his story.

IC: Halfway through, the trip for Petoria and Belmont has been uneventful and peaceful. They reach a small river, which the locals call "El Azul Tranquilo." Translated simply as "The Blue Calm." They are fortunate to find a ferry at the dock and after paying the captain, they make their way across it. They go up a small slope, and it levels out into a beautiful vast plain with low rolling hills, cottages dotting it here and there, and a mountaintop off in the distance behind a high ridge at the other end of the plain. Petoria suddenly senses mass death nearby, but can't tell where.

It becomes all too clear as they reach the top of the high ridge. On the other side of the ridge is another vast plain with low rolling hills and must have once been beautiful. However, thick smoke now billows up from it and the smell of decay is everywhere. Every home in this part of the countryside is burned to the ground, with some still smoldering, creating a thick haze in the air that coupled with the smell of death is almost unbearable. Even the crop fields have been pillaged, burnt, and destroyed.

But that is not the worst of it. As they make their way along the road, dead soldiers can be seen lying on both the road and in the fields on either side as far as the eye can see in the haze. Judging by their armor insignias, some are Kylens, some are Ironclads, and some are Solarans. As they continue on their way, Petoria and Belmont take the time to pick through all the spoils of war lying on the ground around the bodies. They decide to salvage all the weapons and arrows that they can for the soldiers at the outpost, which will be very glad to have them.

After doing this for at least an hour, they salvage 97 arrows, 43 swords, 27 crossbows, a few pieces of gold, and some potions, deciding to leave the armor behind because the corpses are already rotting in them. It isn't long before they arrive at the base of the mountain. It is at that point that the fielded countryside ends and the wooded slope of the mountain begins. The outpost lies on the other side of the mountain in a valley, so it is mandatory that they go over it.

While going up the slope, they come across an empty cart with no horse or driver in sight, a broken wheel, and several arrows dotting its sides. Petoria suddenly gasps and tells Belmont to stop. She climbs quickly out of her cart and runs to the empty one. She looks it over carefully, scrutinizing every board and even sniffing at the wood. Without warning, she throws up her head and looks about at the woods around her. Belmont can see that she has a frightened look on her face so he gets out of the cart to see what's wrong. It is then that Petoria starts yelling out.

Petoria: "Burlap!!!! Burlap!!!! Can you hear me?!!!! Burlap!!!!"

Her calls are answered by a weak moan coming from within the woods at least 30-some feet in. She instantly dashes into them in the direction of the moaning. Belmont quickly follows her and soon catches up to her at a large rock outcrop. She doesn't stop there however, but starts making her way through the boulders to a small flat depression in the center of the rocks. When Belmont finally makes it to her again, he finds her stooping over a man who is mildly wounded and is emaciated as well. Beside the man lies a small empty bundle, which might have held food and an empty wine bag, which most likely held a ration of water.

Petoria: "Oh, god!!! Burlap!!!! Speak to me!!! What happened? Burlap!!!"

All the man can do is moan and mutter a few unintelligible words through his weakness. He has a small gash on his forehead, an arrow wound that has barely penetrated his left upper arm, a broken off arrow in his thigh, and a small gash on his right arm that has been patched with a torn piece of his clothing. He managed to put a turnicate on both injured limbs and successfully kept himself from bleeding to death. He has the first signs of gangrene appearing on his wounds and is obviously in a lot of pain. He must have survived on the paltry rations he had drug with him when he crawled away from the cart to escape his attackers.

She sees that he is in desperate need of food and water and with Belmont's help, they manage to carry him back to their cart. After giving him food and water and Petoria magically healing some of his injuries, he begins to come back to reality somewhat. Soon he is able to speak a little, but he is too disoriented and in too much pain to answer questions. They make room for him in the back of the cart amongst the arrows, weapons, and potions and decide that it would be best if they get him to an alchemist in the outpost as quickly as possible. Belmont takes over as driver alone while Petoria cradles Burlap's head in her lap, hoping that they can get to the outpost before too long.

OOC: Time for me to post again.

IC: Petoria and Belmont had been moping around the hovel for several days doing odds and ends waiting for the man with the horse and cart to arrive and pick up the potions they had made. On the sixth day of waiting, Belmont couldn't stand the suspense anymore. Petoria had said that she would tell him about the Prophecy when the man took away the potions, but he had yet to arrive. He finally got up the nerve to mention it to her and so he walked out into the garden where she was maintaining her plants.

Belmont: "I'm sorry, but I can't stand it anymore. My curiosity is taking over now. What is this Prophecy that you spoke of? I know you said you would tell me after the man goes away with the potions, but it is irking at me and I don't know if I can wait anymore."

Petoria: "It's quite all right. I understand. I will tell you about it, but not here. I am worried. That man has never taken this long to get here before, and knowing you would be here to make thing go faster, he should have been here three days ago. I think we had better take these potions to the guard outpost ourselves. I have a horse and cart of my own we can use. I keep it at the nearby Capleton stables. It's half a mile down the road.

Be a dear and run down there for me. Just tell the owner that you are there to get my horse, Desboroh for me. Show him this ring, and he should understand. Then bring it back here. I will hitch it up to a cart of mine. We need to get these potions to the outpost as soon as possible. They will be needed. Besides, I sense that something is wrong. Something must have happened to Burlap."

Belmont: "Burlap?"

Petoria: "Yes, that is the man's name that has the horse and cart who was supposed to be here to retrieve these potions. Go now. I will prepare for our trip to the outpost."

Belmont does as she asks and comes back 20 minutes later with her horse. She directs him to a cart outside and after a minute or two, the horse is hitched to the cart. They both then take the time to load each of the potions carefully into the cart. It takes them a good half hour to load them and make sure they are secured well enough, but soon it is done. Grabbing some supplies for the day and a half journey and a few weapons, Petoria has Belmont drive the horse 100 yards away from the hovel and then makes him stop. Getting out and turning around, Petoria starts chanting some mystic words and waving her arms about.

As she finishes the spell, Belmont looks back and sees a series of barriers form a dome around the hovel and the garden next to it. Satisfied, Petoria climbs back into the cart and they set off for the outpost. She explains to him what she has just done.

Petoria: "Those barriers will keep my hovel protected from all sorts of magic and intruders. No one else except for me can break those barriers. It is a spell passed down through the family from Descartes. It is used in the event where the guardian has to leave their post for a certain amount of time. The vault is safe now until we get back. Oh, that reminds me. You wanted to know about the Prophecy. It is a very simple one that has two separate outcomes.

The first outcome says that in the year of the Blue Dove, the vault shall be virginally opened and the one true king will come to power, inheriting the knowledge of the old kingdom. The other rulers will bow to him and become loyal, no longer fighting each other. He will be wearing robes of blue and gold and will end all oppression. He will tie the nations of the world together and peace, prosperity, and love will reign free. The land shall flourish and life will be abundant.

The second outcome states that in the year of the Red Skull, a king will come to the throne that is evil and harsh. He will be wearing red robes and will bring about constant chaos in the lands. Wars will be rampant that will result in the deaths of many of the people in these lands. A plague to end all plagues will sweep the land and wipe out all life. Blood will run thick over the earth and death will envelop the land. The vault will be ransacked and the knowledge lost forever in the evils of the ruler.

To tell you the truth Belmont, I don't want to be around if the second one comes true. I'd favor the first, but fate will decide the outcome."

They both sit back in their seats and try to pace themselves for their long journey.

OOC: Hmmmm. Since no one wants to describe the creatures, then I will.

IC: Schostas's eyes begin to grow wide as he looks around at the various creatures that have suddenly appeared. The two brothers are equally disturbed at the sight that is meeting their eyes. Several dark wyrms, drake lords, efreets, rakshasi, gazers, and nagas have appeared. Despite the fact that only two of each has appeared, Schostas is still visibly shaken. He has never had to fight against this many powerful creatures at one time. The brothers' faces glaze over with the same look that he has and they speak in frightened tones to each other.

King Lance: "Dear god!!!!

King Gerald: "What do we do brother?!!! What do we do?!!!

King Lance: "Keep calm you fool!!!! Nothing good can come from panicking!!"

Schostas is silent and frozen in horror. Then he sees something off in the distance on top of the inn. He sees what looks like an ink black shrouded figure with its robes flapping in the wind. It appears to be watching the whole terrifying scene unfolding in and out of the duel ring. It occurs to Schostas that the figure might be that of Queen Sophia, watching the battle from a high point and enjoying it immensely. She holds a long staff in her one hand, and the bottom rests on the roof of the inn.

For the first time in a long time, Schostas is mentally shaken by the sheer power of this witch. Being surrounded on all sides by some of the most power creatures in existence has him on edge and he has to think carefully about what he should do next. Without Shadow Wolf around to help, he must rely on the adventurers in the inn to help him and the brothers. Slowly the creatures begin closing in on them. An idea comes to him, but it is fraught with great risk. He realizes he still has the summoning medallion, but using it now would me he would fall unconscious and be completely helpless.

He turns every possible idea over in his head one by one and rejects them all. Just when he decides that the medallion is his only avenue of hope and is the most comfortable portal of death at the same time, the summoned creatures in and outside of the inn burst onto the scene to help. They all appear to be recovered and ready for another go at battle. The dragonflies somehow sense that the witch is on the roof and automatically start swooping at her. She in return starts flinging various magic bolts at them to try to get them away. The surviving aranea climbs up the side of the inn and begins sending magic of its own at the witch, catching her off guard several times.

The injured centaur has recovered enough to join its partner in attacking some of the creatures summoned by the witch. The Spectre too has recovered and busies itself by attacking the efreets. The two ogres are now healed and quickly jump into the fray, sending magic spells flying in all directions. The ice lizard, though weak, wastes no time in joining the attack. The drakes and the basilisks also hurry onto the battlefront, concentrating on any creature in view. Two of the three dryads come out to fight, but the third sadly has died during the night from its extensive injuries.

Schostas now looks around him with calmer eyes at his summoned creatures as they fight bravely against the creatures that might easily spell their doom. This sight causes the two brothers to relax a little. Motioning towards the inn, Schostas has them quickly make their way out of the ring and towards its safety as fast as they can. The summoned creatures provide a perfect distraction for Schostas to get them safely there. Seeing that they are guarded adequately, he then rushes outside to join the other adventurers in the action.

OOC: We are almost to the end of the RP people. Let's make this battle memorable. Leave at least one of the dryads, one of the basilisks, and one of the centaurs alive. If anyone can cast charm spells that would be an awesome turn of events as well.

OOC: The plot seems to thicken. (Groan)

IC: Schostas has only enough time to witness these things before the lich is back on its feet. However, before the lich can make another attack, Schostas wheels around and directs his attention back to it. With a series of moves too fast for anyone to see, including the lich, he swings his sword with unimaginable speed and seems to miss the lich each time. However, the lich gives off a loud gurgled scream and splits into several pieces, black blood oozing from its severed flesh.

Schostas then re-sheathes his sword and makes a run for the duel ring. As he approaches, he can hear the two brothers arguing. They appear to be accusing each other of the events that have been taking place during the last few days.

King Gerald: "...that's crazy!!! I had nothing to do with that damn demon!! Next, you will be accusing me of creating that blasted Titan of yours!”

King Lance: "What do you mean you didn't create that Titan?!!! I know of no one else that can do such a thing! You’re just covering up for yourself!!"

King Gerald: "I tell you that it wasn't me!!! And what about those damn snakes?!! That had to be your doing, brother!!! It's just your style!!"

King Lance: "Me?!! It wasn't me!! I was attacked by them as well!! I thought it was you!! Oh, what fools we have been!!"

King Gerald: "So you didn't create them?!! Then who the hell did?!!"

Schostas then jumps into the ring and runs up to them.

Schostas: "I can give you that answer gentlemen. It was all done by a witch. She wants to have both kingdoms all for herself. She tried several times to kill the adventurers at the inn and the two of you. That demon yet another one of her tools of destruction and it's lucky for you that Shadow Wolf has offered to duel him and spare the two of you. Now we have got to stop this bickering and work together to get rid of the witch."

King Gerald: "You stay out of this!!! Who do you think you are!! Leave us to work out our own problems!!!"

King Lance: "Oh, do shut up Gerald!!! I think he may be on to something. Just who is this witch and why should we listen to you?!!"

Schostas gives a smirk at this question and taking a hold of the bottom of his robes, he rips them off quickly, eliciting gasps and stares from the two brothers.

King Gerald: "What the...how? No!! It can't be possible!!!!"

King Lance: "HA-HA!!!! I knew it!!! There are some of them left!!! I should have realized it before! Brother, this is one of the surviving guardian mages of our mother's private army."

King Gerald: "I can see that!!! I am not stupid!!"

King Lance: "That explains your amazing fighting skills and magical abilities. But what of this witch that you speak of?"

Schostas: "I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the witch is in fact your wife, King Gerald."

King Lance: (gasps) "What!!! Is this true, brother?!!"

King Gerald: "I thought that she had given up the witchcraft after I had married her. I refused to believe that she had returned to it again until the snakes appeared. Then the events of the previous few days started to make sense at last. But there is no way I could have known it for sure of have been able to d anything about it!!"

King Lance: "You fool!!! You could have had her executed or locked away in your dungeon!! Instead you let her go about plotting against us!"

King Gerald: "I can't just execute my own wife!!! That's insane!! If I had known before..."

King Lance: "...Yeah!! If you had known!! You should have known it from the beginning!!! I would have killed her myself if I had known!!!"

Schostas: "That is enough you two!!!! We have to stop arguing and start working together!!! That demon is nothing compared to what else she might be able to do!! She might even be able to..."

Once again, he is cut short as several flashes of light appear in and outside of the duel ring. People start screaming and running away as they see what creatures have started appearing.

OOC: Let's make the creatures terrifying enough to scare even the adventurers like Schostas. Something much much more frightening than demons. This needs to be memorable.

Did I not say that I have no urge to use such power? I specifically said that it is a piece of added information. I am not dumb. I only added that to make my character more interesting. I did not and do not want to pursue any sort of great power with this vault or with Petoria. It is nothing more than a large library and storeroom like that in a castle.

I haven't even written the information on the Prophecy yet. The Prophect will be important. It will give a hint of what might take place at the end of the RP. I know my place in this RP. I am quite aware of my actions and I assure you that I do not plan on changing the plot or anything drastic like that.

She leads him into the cellar once again and relighting the lanterns, she takes him to the side of the cellar with the furnace. Going to a blank wall with an unlit torch, she pulls down on it. A section of the wall slides away to reveal a pitch-black room. Upon lighting a torch in the room, Belmont's eyes grow wide with surprise at what he sees before him. The room is almost as big as the rest of the cellar and is lined with tables, shelves, desks, and wardrobes of all sorts throughout its entire length.

The shelves are packed with hundreds of heavily dust-encrusted tomes, scroll tubes, and documents of all sorts. The tables are lined with crowns, gems, weapons, tools, flasks, bottles, wine bags, and various other items in the same condition. He can’t see what is in the desks or the wardrobes, but they too are covered with thick layers of dust. She turns to him and he can see that she has a very excited, but at the same time, stern look on her face. She turns sideways so she can look at both the room and Belmont without strain.

Petoria: "This is why I am known as Petoria Carmine the Sage. I am a direct descendant of Descartes Carmine, one of the most powerful alchemists and sages that ever lived on this continent, but also one of the most secretive as well. He was the right hand man of the original ruler of this land, whose name has somehow been lost with time. That ruler also had faced an invasion of his land during that time. Two kingdoms were fighting his for ultimate rule of Pralgrad, which many rumor, might have been named by him. They were the Ironclads and the Solarans.

The king was one day attacked by rogue assassins and was hit by a poisoned dart. On his deathbed, he called my ancestor to him. He told him about a secret vault he had created in case such a fate should befall him and his kingdom. He asked him to collect all the knowledge, wealth, and weaponry of his kingdom and lock it away in this vault. He also told him that his body was to be interred in a glass case within this vault in a secret catacomb adjoining it. Where, I don’t know, but various magical traps and creatures protect it. He charged this to my ancestor and all of his descendants that they should never let this vault fall into the wrong hands.

All of these generations later, it fell to my parents to pass that responsibility to me to maintain the secret. I am now the guardian of the knowledge, wealth, and weaponry of the original kingdom of Pralgrad and that is what you see before you. I am telling you all this for a reason. I am without...uh...a worthy heir. My only son is now the leader Kylen, and I fear that he cannot be trusted. I do not wish to speak more of that right now, maybe later. Anyway, you may not know it, but your family is an old and trusted one. I had hoped that they might send someone of your quality and distinction to help me. Moreover, I know that you can be trusted as your family was always kind to mine in the past. I may wish to pass on the responsibility of this guardianship to you.

Belmont: “Me?!! Why me?!! I wouldn’t even trust myself!! I am afraid of taking on such a responsibility! It is beyond my abilities!! Moreover, with the war, you will be attacked eventually. Your son must have leaked out information about this vault by now, and…”

Petoria: “Don’t worry about that. He knows nothing about it. And he would not have been able to remove any such proof of its existence if he did anyway. You see that royal coat of arms just inside the door on the masonry of the floor?”

Belmont: “Yes. What about it?”

Petoria: “The king’s tomb is not the only trapped room. Every item in this room has a magical defense placed on it in the case that someone might try to remove something from the room. That royal coat of arms ensures that nothing will leave the room. It generates a strong magical field like a barrier that keeps all objects in the room. But that is not the real defense though. Any item moved more than five feet from its resting place generates a severe electrical shock. On top of that, if any object makes it to the coat of arms, it will set off other traps in the room. The first seals the door immediately. The second alerts various invisible guardians lined around the room that cannot be seen or detected without magic. A third freezes the person in place on the floor and immobilizes them. And the fourth is inevitable death at the hands of the guardians.”

Alarms will sound upstairs to alert me that the traps are being activated and that someone is in the vault without my permission. Now, knowing all that, I don’t think I will have to worry about you stealing anything. There is a spell to override the traps, but only I know it. In addition, I advise you not to tell anyone about this either. You must understand that this secret cannot get out or this land will be doomed. I feel I can trust you enough. That is enough info for now. We must go upstairs and wait for the horse and cart to arrive and collect the potions. Then I will tell you about the Prophecy. Let us go now.”

She motions him out of the room and putting out the torch, she reactivates the door causing it to close back up, erasing all traces of it. They quickly head upstairs to make the preparations.

OOC: I don't plan to bring Kylen into this at all. Just an added piece of information. Sorry for the length of my post.

OOC: Dang. My part seems to be so trivial. But I guess that is okay because this RP confuses me too much.

IC: Belmont has been busy carrying crateful after crateful of bottles, leather wine bags, and flasks up to Petoria for the past half hour. After having brought up twelve full crates of supplies, she tells him to close the trap door and come sit next to her.

Petoria: "Now, it is very important that you pay attention to the procedure of bottling the potions. First, you must make sure that the bottles and flasks are clean and that the leather wine bags are sterilized. I have a cauldron over there by the water pump on the stove that is used to sterilize these things. Just start soaking them and drying them off and I will get around to the next step in the process of making potions."

He follows her instructions and after several hours of sterilizing the objects, he finishes the work. She makes both of them a meal and then she shows him the next step in the process.

Petoria: "Okay, here is the next step in the process. My concoction has finished being prepared completely and all that is left to do is put it in the respectable containers. Here is a funnel. I have two ladles and two funnels and I will be doing this also as it is quicker when two people do it. Just ladle it out like this and fill the bottles and flasks to this level."

Belmont: "This much?"

Petoria: "Yes, that's good. You just continue doing that and I will work on the leather wine bags. They are much more difficult to fill correctly."

Belmont: "Ok. I'll get right down to it."

In a matter of hours, a task that would have taken Petoria days to complete herself is finished and standing back, she admires the work that Belmont and her have completed.

Petoria: "Thank the gods that you are here to help me. This would have taken me days to complete. And here they are, done in a matter of hours. You will certainly receive a good pay for your work here. And...say...since you did such a good job, I want to show you something. Follow me."

OOC: I will continue with more later. My next post will have a surprise twist in it that is of great importance, but of little value to the plot at the same time. It won't alter anything, but I felt that my character must have a better part in this RP than just that of a potion lady who sits in her hovel making potions all day. It might bring about some actual fighting and action for her eventually though.

OOC: I hate to post again, but this RP cannot die. I will not let it. It's too good.

IC: Schostas parries a few of the lich's attacks and while trying to strike back, he is suddenly thrown off-balance, causing him to fall to the ground. The lich raises his sword into the air to smite him down and is suddenly itself knocked to the ground by a semi-powerful blow from behind. When Schostas sees who it was that knocked it over, he is completely overtaken with shock. Standing directly behind the lich, which now lies on its stomach and is attempting to get up, is Neris, holding the sword that Shadow Wolf had given her.

---

Seeing the dead creature that she thought was so lovely before become undead, rise up, and start attacking the man in the red robes, drives Neris over the edge. Her instinct to help becomes too strong and so she wriggles out of the arms of Kris and runs to help the red-robed man. She is still upset at him for killing all of the other creatures, which she thought were so beautiful and innocent, but for the moment she forgives him long enough to help him. She deals the lich a sharp blow in its back catching it off-guard and knocking it onto its stomach a few feet to Schostas's left side. Just as quick as it happens, Kris snatches her up and carries her inside the inn to safety.

---

Schostas takes a few moments to recover from his shock. He hadn't expected the girl to risk her life to save him after having seen so much hate and sadness in her eyes. But when he returns to reality, he sees the stunned lich slowly trying to get back up and Kris carrying Neris quickly inside the inn. Schostas immediately gets to his feet and focuses on contacting Shadow Wolf as fast as he can before the lich can get to its feet again. He casts a spell and soon he is linked with Shadow Wolf.

Shadow Wolf: "Who is it that links with me? Oh, you Schostas. What's wrong? You never contacted me through telepathy before. Who is that that you are fighting by the inn?"

Schostas: "I have little time to explain. The witch revived the flying man with the sword as a lich and used it as a means to distract me from getting your attention. A little someone knocked it down from behind as it was going to smite me, enabling me just enough time to contact you telepathically."

Shadow Wolf: "Yes, that is all very well. But what does that have to do with me? Do you need my help with the lich?"

Schostas: "No!! Listen!! I think I have figured out the witch's plan. This lich is an obvious a distraction to keep me busy while she executes the main part of her plan! Don't take your eyes off the duel ring! I have a feeling something is about to happen! Our lives may depend upon your alertness! Keep your eyes open for--"

Schostas doesn't have a chance to finish before a blinding white light emerges from the center of the duel ring. What everyone sees when the light dissipates is enough to bring sharp gasps and cause everyone to stare in shock.

OOC: Let's get this RP going again!!!

Well, it won't necessarily ruin the movie. I agree with you that it let's you know what is going to happen and to anticipate it. But I was saying that specifically reading a book and then watching the movie could be dangerous in certain aspects. It is all right if you just want to see how much the movie is like the book and in what ways it isn't. At the same time, you should keep a clear mind and try to enjoy the movie in all its splendor and creativity.

What you shouldn't do is read a book and then watch a movie with an expectation that everything should be the same as what you had read. That often leads a person to do nothing but get pissed off every time something isn't the same as it is in the book. That is what I meant by reading the book and then watching the movie can take all the fun out of it. There is nothing wrong with reading the book first as long as you keep an unbiased open mind while watching the movie.

From what the one person said about the movie Sphere, it sounds like what I had mentioned above. As a student of Sherlock Holmes, I examined the facts they gave and why they didn't like the movie. I concluded that this person, having finished the book, went on to the movie expecting it to be just like the book and not keeping a clear and open mind during the viewing. Thus, finding that the movie did not live up to the book in many ways, the person decided that the movie was bad and didn't give it a chance at all. They watched the movie with a fixed perspective and every little difference from the book added up to them concluding that the movie was terrible because it was not as good as the book.

Doing that, in my opinion, takes the fun out of watching the movie. I always watch a movie with an open mind and often find that I like it more that way then if my mind is fixed on a certain way the movie should be.

You know, as I think about it, you are right. Sphere definitely could have been much better. I loved the action and everything else about the movie, but my film critic instant tells me that it could have been much much better than it was. So, I will give you the benefit of the doubt, despite having never read the book. :rolleyes:

I was making an attempt to leave out as many fantasy films as possible. I don't have much of a taste for them. I like horror movies and action movies. Some comedies are ok, but to me, American Pie was idiotic and not worth watching. Comedy movies continue to get dumber and dumber. Action movies are becoming boring. Horror movies are becoming stale. The whole movie industry is going downhill in my opinion.

The last of the good movies died out with Titanic and Halloween H20. I only saw parts of The Fast and the Furious and didn't like what I saw. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was good until the end. The end was terrible. It just sucked out loud. Ice Age was good.

Sorry, I have film critic in my genes. My gay cousin Terry used to be a film critic and I take many of my characteristics from him. I do the same scrutinizing of movies that he does. In all irony, he just appeared here at the house a few minutes ago. Go figure.

I don't know why, but movies made these days don't interest me as much as they should. I just don't know why.

I feel that books are bad sources of media. Sure, the read can be good for your brain and can increase your knowledge, but if you put all of your emphasis on the book and keep that in mind while watching the movie, it takes all the fun out of it.

I like reading books as much as the next person, but as a person who has a hereditary habit of watching a movie and then scrutinizing it, I feel it is best to keep a clear mind while watching the movie. If you sit through a whole movie comparing it to the book it was based on, then you are setting yourself up for severe disappointment. The soul purpose of movies based on books is to give a good idea of what the book is like is real life.

It is nearly impossible to make a movie perfectly reflect a book and if you go around looking for that all the time, then I am sorry, but you are a complete idiot. Movies are not made to reflect books, they are made to entertain the brain. Sure, some movies are not as good as the book they are based on. But that is to be expected. There is no such thing as the perfect movie.

My advice is to forget about the book you read and focus your attention on the actual movie. You will find that you will enjoy it much more if you watch it without a biased view of it to start with. Never compare a movie to a book. Those of you that do happen to do that mustn’t have many movies that you actually like. I find that I enjoy movies much more if I leave the book out of it.

Phantoms for instance. I heard that the book was excellent and that the movie was a poor adaptation of it. But I enjoyed the movie and for the sake of having liked it, I am not going to go out and the read the book to see if it is so much better than the movie as I have heard. That biases the view of the movie and ruins the entertainment value of it.

Oooooooooooh. I loved Sphere. I don't like to read books before the movie. I prefer the movie. However, I must confess that I rarely watch new movies anymore. The most recent movie that I saw any of would probably have to be part of the first The Lord of the Rings movie. It was okay, but I don't see what all the fuss is about. I am seldomly attracted to any of the most recent of the movies to come out. I prefer the classics and movies from the 70's 80's and 90's.

The Mummy
The Mummy Returns
Scooby Doo: The Movie
Sleuth
The Aliens series
The Thing (1980's version)
Weekend At Bernie's 1 & 2
Sister Act 1 & 2
Dante's Peak
The Langoliers
Star Wars Trilogy
Desperado
Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory
The X-Files

I will list classics later.

Once again, how can you not like Sphere? I find that reading a book and then watching a movie based on a book tends to spoil all the fun every time. If you read the book first, then you sit there expecting certain things to happen during the movie. When they don't happen or things are added, then you get pissed off about it not being exactly like the book and not up to the same standards.

My suggestion is to watch the movie first, and then read the book. Or better yet, don't read the damn book at all. I wanted to read Misery, but I decided to watch the movie first, and I enjoyed the movie immensely. When I read the book, I found that things were different, but it didn't bother me because I saw the movie first in all of its splendor and greatness.

Say what you like, but I believe that reading a book first ruins a person's expectation of how the movie should be and should be avoided at all costs.
