(OOC: This is something that i have been toying with for a few weeks. Let me know if any of you would consider joining) ( I don't know what it is but because of the character i am playing in 'Dark Journey', Du'Kuli, i am going through a phase of elementals.)


From within the shadow and the light were they formed. Four great beings, to rule the four elements...... Earth, Air, Fire and Water. They do not fight for the justice of good, nor are they the minions of darkness. They chose their own path, that which suits their nature.....

....However..... though these beings are mighty, they have succumb to a more than mortal trait....a thirst for power.

More so the destructive Fire and strong Earth than the soothing Air and harmonic water....yet even these two wish power.....power over their fellow Elementals.

Thus begins 'The War of The Elements', and when the Elements make war, teh mountains shall shatter and the waters boil. Flames will rage and winds will howl......

....For a war of the elements throws balance out the window.....

(OOC: Just a little information to add on. These Lords of the Elements are all in humanoid form, with utter control over their elements, however that is not to say that they are invincible, yes they are immortal, but can be killed by any who are strong enough. Their power over their particular element is immense and cannot be outmatched with similar magicks of that school, however powerful wizards, perhaps using the opposite magic can challenge an Elemantal Lord and have a fair chance of over powering them.

I will roleplay the 'Lord of the Sky', Air elemental and i will be looking for others to play the other Elemental Lords. You can look as you wish, choose a name and a gender for the one you wish to be. Mind there are only three Lords left, first come first served.

Other characters are more than welcomed and encouraged to join. Rouges, Knights, Wizards Dragons, even Kender are all welcome.

I will post details of my character soon, and will speak to the other elemental lords as they arrive.)

Hope you enjoy this....

hmmm...I'm actually glad all the elements are taken...I'll be an archmagus, speciallizing in Lightning magic...*Grins Evilly* Uses a staff made of mithril (No sword'll be able to defeat this one, the owner'll be dead before the sword touches the staff).

Name: Cresan
Gender: male
Element: lightning
Magic: Manipulation of Energy (Mages usually don't have this)

Appearance: Sirin (shape changer, don't know if I got the spelling right...) male, gold and silver hair (Silver has a metellic sea green hue) eyes are sea green with a tinge of yellow (The gold in his hair and the yellow in his eyes are because of working long with lightning and electric magicks. Wears a green/brown tunic, leather armor, leather boots, greenish leggings, leather gloves, and a brown, hooded cloak. He keeps his staff covered with a piece of cloth tied on both ends.

Attitude: Very competitive. Can't stand anyone beating him in his field, and indeed, no one can use lightning and electricity better than he.

BTW, do you have a storyline? I'm not really sure if you can make one for this..."Draco dormiens nunquam tittilandus"-"Never tickle a sleeping dragon"

OOC:Sorry i haven't posted in a couple of days. Yeah Mirror, i knew about that and Arcturus, i hope you don't mean that you are better than me when using lightning magic, because it is part of my Element, air. But don't worry, i am not a great deal more powerful than any archmagus when he uses magic of my element.

Character: Wind Screamer.
Element: Air
Gender: Male

Appearance: Human in apperance. Very tall and muscular. Long white air and sky blue skin. Where his eyes would be there is cloud, which lightning streaks through. He is bear chested but wears the bottom half of an egyptian style toga and sandals on his feet. On his back, a set of feathery white wings, which have a span of 10ft. He wears a silver band around his throat.

Weapon: Element of Air and a pine coloured, wooden, 7ft tall staff, with air runes engraved on it. The runes make it unbreakable.

He has a very serene and tranquil nature, however like the storm, when he angers, nations tremble before his power.

His dwelling is in the clouds, a small citadel suspended in the sky.


Yeah there is a storyline, The four elements are at war with one another, throwing balance into chaos. It is more so, water and air, pited against fire and earth. This can be changed easily if it doesn't suit the other elementals.

Basically, we plot out what how each of us intend to over throw one another( possibly if one of us was to defeat another element, we would take control of their element as well. I'm not sure about this). It really stems from that. We have confrontations, bulid armies to serve us, the usual.

Oh and Timesplit, i was meaning only three left out of the four, Earth, air, fire and water. I am going to hope that you were joking, right?

Element: Fire
Name:Drake
Weapon: Fire and a 5 foot flame sword.

Appearance: Tall very muscular. Where's shiny silver armour but has no need for such foolich things other than intimidating appearance.He lives in fire caves hidden in his own parellel world. He keeps his army in that world and summons them by use of magic. He rides in a Black and Blood red Chariot pulled by a red Dragon. There are runes and enchantments on the chariot and collar of the dragon so that no other than himself can harm or ride in it. His Dragon's name is 'FlameSpike'. Drake's Eyes are Blood red. Instead of hair he has flames pluming of his head. He has a mean temper and will only show his passive side around allies. At the moment his ally is Earth (Right?)."Splatter?I have never in my life splattered!" Fizban said to Tasslehoff.

Lightning-Water (enemies)

Earth-Fire (enemies)

Earth-Air (Iffy can be either...ever been in a dust storm??)

Air-Water (kinda the same with Earth and Air...Water spouts...it depends entirely on the Air elemental...can be quite a problem for either the earth or water elemental...but if the two where to work together...the results...well we've all seen what happened with Hurricane Andrew. and Ect!!)

OOC: Just a wee reminder. There are only four elements... Earth, Air, Fire and Water. Yes there are sub-elements, such as lightning, wind etc. But the purpose of the four elements is to be in control of all these sub-elements. Okay there can be people in control of sub-elements, however these people would have to be allies with the Master elemental and Timesplit is in control of the Aether.

I would also like for earth and fire to be allies, air and water to be allies. This is what i originally intended to happen. It also keeps things simplistic enough to follow without confusion.

Any problems with this, let me know.


IC: Leaping out of the citadel, letting the wind fill his wings, Wind Screamer soared through his domain, thinking of many dark and frightning things. Though he was usually calm and serene, this latest war brought thunder to his clouds as he past them. Swooping low over valleys and tree tops, he decided to pay a visit to the water edge.

Landing softly on his feet, Wind Screamer folded his wings behind him and looked out over the vast stretch of water. Letting his words catch the air, a silent message drifted on the wind over the water in hope of finding Aqua.'From earth to sky, from leaves to roots,

IC: Aqua rose and fell on the inner currents of the sea like a falcon would soar in the spring breeze. Her long blue hair trailed behind her lithe figure, clad only in a shell bikini in order to uphold modesty. If she'd had it her way, she wouldn't even be wearing that. Clothes are for land dwellers, and that was one thing she was not.
Swimming like this always made her feel calmer, andcalm was just the feeling she was looking for. This elemental war was starting to get to her, and if there was one feeling she didn't like, it was stress. Another land dweller trait the somehow she had picked up!
A delicately tapered ear pricked at the sound of someone calling her name. She homed in on the sound and rose to the surface, the figure at the waters edge becoming clearer as she rose.
She broke the surface with a splash and studied the wind elemental facing her. She smiled and swam closer to the shore, finally relenting and fully surfacing from the water so she could converse with her ally properly. A skirt wrap made of the scales of many different fish appeared around her waist, and she tottered slightly as she walked, trying to gain her land legs.
She stood opposite Wind Screamer and fixed him with her almond shaped blue-green eyes.
"What is it you want of me today Screamer?" she asked.

Drake walked back and forth along his stone bridge above a volcano in his parellel world. He looked down over his working and strong army. Drake was a military mastermind and has a plethora of magic tactics as well. He summoned his chariot pulled by Flamestrike his dragon and waited.

After about ten minutes it landed next to him and he got in it. He flew over his palace surrounded by a lava moat and guarded by another 4 red dragons, one in each tower. He landed in the courtyard and got out.

"Hmmm.....seems by bodyguards have gotten....lost." He said as he heard a loud belch from the cellar stairs to his palace." I'll just have to make more."He continued as he held his hand up.

Armour appeared out of nowhere and floated as bones dug themselves out of the ground to fit together in the armour. Then they cought fire and were walking bones of flame. There were about 40.

"Come here." He grumbled to them angrily." We have to check on my ...specimen."

They walked to the cellar stair and began walking down. When they got to the bottom he motiong for them to go to the door and stand guard while more went to open the gate for him at the bottom. He walked through and heard a deep grow.

"Come forth." He commanded with a little bit of magic.

A huge beast the size of a 6 story house lumbered forward. It had claws the size of swords and teeth to rival them. It was masculine beyond belief. Drake made a boulder appear out of thin air in front of it.

"Crush it." He said.

The beat picked the boulder up in one hand and squeezed it shut smashing the boulder to pieces.

"Good. This will help greatly in the war..." Drake continues smirking whilst ducking under chips of stone.

Looking upon the water beauty, Screamer answered" We must talk..... I believe that we have been idle too long now. Though i do not commend what i am about to do, i feel it necessary. Our enimies are up to something. I feel a great trouble in the wind. It whispers of dark intents.....Drake is planning something. I know not what his plan his, must we must act before he does."

Aqua gestured for them to both walk along the shore line."I plan to send an army beings that i have pulled out of the shadow, made of wind and lightning, against Drake. I do not suppose that i will have any great chance of succeeding. Powerful though the army i have created is, they will not last long against him. If i were to go, i may help to turn the battle, but on his plane, i will be the weaker."

Looking at Aqua, she had a look of clear understanding on her face." So i purpose, that we create beings of both our elements and send them to attack. Your water and my wind will help cool the flames of his army." Before she could answer." I also have several mages loyal to me, whom are willing to go and sacrifice their lives. I have told them no but they are stubborn, as mages can be." He waited for her answer, a bead of sweat ran down his head.'From earth to sky, from leaves to roots,

((OOC: Wait!! Can I still join?! I thought of an element!! Sort of!! It's from the series His Dark Materials and doesn't really fit in as a sub element...but I have a way of making it weak!!

Name: Lyra Starsoul

Element: Dust (Dust is a particle that bonds people to their daemons, a daemon being the embodiment of a soul. It is seen only through certain ways and mostly around children, them being the most innocent. It travels as photons, circling people in golden motes when seen, and can transend dimensions. The reason it is not as strong as the 4 elements is because it is spread out between an infinate number of parallel universes.)

Abilities: When infused in weapons and objects, it awards them power over the weak minded (depending on the object) and makes them as strong as the one who weilds it. (a sword infused with Dust will not break unless its owner breaks first) It can also, in certain weapons, give them the ability to cut through to parallel universes, though any person's daemon (soul) cannot live outside their own universe for too long.

Lyra herself has been studying Dust all her life. She looks as a child because of this and creates objects she needs, ever-experimenting with new amounts of Dust. She has limited control over pure Dust itself, but it isn't very practical. She has a physical daemon that can be seen as the small shapeshifting animal that is always by her side. (Most people's daemon's are purely mental or spiritual, meaning they can't be seen. Lyra's can and if he is hurt, she feels it.)

As of now, she is neutral. Well, that is, if you want me to join. If you think this is stupid, I won't with no hard feelings at all. Lord knows I have too little time already.))"I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and

Mythran stared across the void that was his home of choice. He looked at the armies of the 4 elements, at the lesser elements begining to grow fearful and jealous. He had known this war would come, just as he already knew the possible outcomes and the parts he must play in each. But even the elemental of Space and Time could not forsee which course would be chosen in something this important. And so, Mythran continued to watch the others, knowing that soon, each of them in turn would to him, and petition for his help in their war.

Drake walked into his Plan and Strategy room. His council was there of course, consisting of 4 seers and 6 mages.

"Master." They all said as one giving him deep bows.

"Enough." Drake returned."Sit." he continues taking his high wing backed lead chair at the front laying out maps and blue prints of his battle field.

"I have a feeling we're going to be battling here." He pointed to an open plain just south of his palace." I want archers posted all along these cliff walls keeping the enemy at bay when or if they attack." WE will send our ground troops out to meet them in melee combat first. We will weaken the enemy then send in the cavalry to utterly destroy them.If that doesnt work.......We can always use my pet project....." He continued with a sneer. I've been adding magic to it fine tuning its abilities."

"But master.......do you think its safe to use such a beast?" one of his mages said." We cant begin to know what an Abyss creature would do if it was confused or frightened." he said.

"Don't you tell me what i should do." Drake yelled holding up a hand and pointing it at the mage lifting him off the ground."It will work. I have trained it personally." Drake said."You do not have the privilige to voice your unwanted opinions. That is for the seers." He went on with a sneer. He whispered inaudible words and blood started pouring from the mages ears. After a few minutes he made it stop and let the mage fall to the floor."Heal him." He coolly remarked to the other mages.

Aqua paced around the wind god and fixed him with a thoughtful gaze, her lips pressed tightly together. When she noticed him begin to perspire with anticipation she could no longer hold her face in that expression and cracked her stern visage(or whatever the word is-I've got a mental blank! You know what I mean anyway!!!! :)) with a grin and a giggle.
"I love it when you get like that! So easy to wind up!!!" she said in between chuckles. She stopped when she noticed that Screamer was not amused in the slightest and got back to business.
"I think your idea is sound. I want to post some of my archers around the boundary of our land, it will add to our attack power I think. I expect Drake will want to send ground trops in to meet us head on, so we must also be prepared for this. Hwever, I will not risk the lives of my men unnessesarily. Should things take a turn for the worst, we retreat. The last thing we need to do is go into this with our heads on backwards. Better we pull back and regroup. Let them win the battle so we can win the war."
She paused for a moment, wondering how she could phrase her next question. Finally, she decided that the direct approach was probably best and just came out with it.
"You know, I don't think that the Earth elementals would like Drake to rule either. I know you don't get on with them that much, but what could be lost from asking them if they want to join forces? If drake has them on his side, you know there is no wqay we can win! What chance do we stand against stone and earth?"

Lyra Starsoul reached forward with a long dagger and cut through the fabric of space itself. She could feel a storm brewing, anger seeped through even into her world, it was as if something was coming that was going to affect not one but every parallel universe, saturating space/time itself.

"And we have to find out what's going on," she muttered to the small fox that trotted by her side. Taking a deep breath and trying to contain their excitment, the pair stepped through the window and into a new world.

It was beautiful, similiar to her own in landscape. But the earth was tense here, the water agitated and the air thick with anticipation. "The elements..." Panalathoimon, her daemon, whispered. Lyra nodded and started forward, Pan becoming an eagle behind her and skimming through foreign clouds. "I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and

IC: "Summon my chariot. I have to visit with Our earthen ally." Drake said to his guards as they rushed off.

A couple minutes later his dragon piloted chariot swooped down and landed next to him. Drake turned to his guards. "I need to make sure my ally doesnt try to defect on me." He leapt into the chariot and soared into the sky.

After a couple hours of flying and passing through his parellel world boundary he arrived at the sacred frest of his ally. He immediatly knew something was wrong. There was a slight gust in the air.

"Wind Screamer!That fool!"Drake said angrily under his breath. He swooped over the tree tops and saw Wind screamer in a clearing approaching the Earth elements residence. He cracked his chariot whip and the dragon dove directly at The air element.

Drake took out his huge battle sword and readied himself. The dragon was only ten feet from the ground and covering the distance between the 2 enemies swiftly.He dove out of the chariot and brought his sword down right on top of Wind Screamer. He thought for sure he had him but his sword struck and invisible barrier inches from his neck.Drake cursed and leapt away.

"Face me Wind Screamer!". He yelled. " Face me or youwill be known as a coward just like your father all that time ago!" He continued. This seemed to have awakened Wind Screamer.

(I just thought i might bring sme background history to this story. I was thinking about since my character is the most evil and vile that he should have killed Wind Screamers father in a previous Element War. Just a though) "Splatter?I have never in my life splattered!" Fizban said to Tasslehoff.

"Nice timing," Pan whispered to Lyra as they came apon an battle-in-the-making. Lyra nodded, excitment shining in her young eyes. "Who do you think they are?" the girl asked eagerly.

The small ermine crept forward, his dread as acute as her excitment. "Wind Screamer...the air element?"

"Perhaps...we should get a closer look..." Lyra said, creeping forward. Pan followed reluctantly."I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and

Wind Screamer whipped around to see Drake. His eyes widend but not in fear, in anger. The cloud in his eyes darkend as did the clouds above, becoming thicker, more violent. "I accept your challange Drake. Even if it is destined, that i am not to win this war, i will at least win this battle against YOU!" With that he launched at Drake raising his staff, upon which the runes glowed fiercely. Flying low over the ground he darted towards Drake at the speed of lightning, becoming an actual bolt of chaotic lightning.

However, during the assault he suddenly realised that lightning wouldn't be as effective, so he decided to try a different approach. Before reaching Drake he swirved upwards, haulting several dozen feet above the ground. Raising his staff, he grasped it in both hands. Muttered something, and began to spin. He span and span, faster and faster, until he was the centre of a cyclone. It was then hurrled at Drake. "DOGDE THAT IF YOU CAN DRAKE!!"

Drake watched as the cylclone came right at him. He whistled 3 times and his dragon flew right into Wind Screamer, disrupting his attack. Drake Ran up to him and raised his sword and put enough magic into it for it to burst into flames that could be seen miles around. He brought the sword down upon Wind Screamer.

"Dodge if you can Wind Screamer." Drake yelled laughing evilly.

OOC: I was thinking you would flee from battle and Drake would threaten Lia(Earth Element) to stay on his side. But its up to you. Its your thread."Splatter?I have never in my life splattered!" Fizban said to Tasslehoff.

OOC: Me...retreat! Never! I might actually, i will wait and see if you can avoid this next attack.


"Easily done Drake!! " Raising his staff, he blocked the attack and shoved the fire Lord away. Flying high into the air, Screamer shouted " I doubt you will find a way to stop this!!!"

"Let the Heavens open
and the Gods watch!
Let their tears grace the land!!"

As though the Gods truely did weep, it started to rain. This was no ordinary shower, it was enchanted and made a monson seem like a trickle. Screamer watched as the Fire Lord began to steam.

OOC: Water is the Fire Lords weakness, i said that i would win this battle.'From earth to sky, from leaves to roots,

Lyra reclined on a large rock--Pan, a butterfly, sat on her shoulder. She watched the battle with wide eyes, laughing once in a while at the threats and wondering at the magic contol involved.

Suddenly she heard a chuckle and hopped off the rock with childlike grace and enthusiasm. Another spectator sat not far from her, chuckling.

Lyra grinned at him, ignoring Pan's cautious words. "Some battle, huh?""I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and
I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve."

Drake cringed with pain as the rain drops hit him. He crossed his arms a muttered ancient words of magic. He swung his arms out in huge arcs and a sphere of fire circled around him turning all the rain around him into steam which floated back up into the sky.

"You think you can beat me?" Drake taunted. He threw his hands forward and fireball after fireball flew from them at Wind Screamer. He ended the flurry with a massive lava ball."Splatter?I have never in my life splattered!" Fizban said to Tasslehoff.

Lia watched the battle from the mountain that was her home. She watched in amusement as the other masters fought. She smiled and shook her head, her hair wisping around her. She stood and stretched, disturbing the animals that had gathered around her.

The Stag shook his head, his proud rack of antlers just barely touching the tree branches a meter above his head. The wolf at her side started, and growled, her scruff bristled.

Lia laughed, it was a deep, warm sound. she moved along, her dark green eyes bright. She laughed at the thought of picking any particular element to rule. she knew that all must live together for any to survive. the water needed the earth to keep her bed, and the fire needed the air to keep the flame...The earth needed the fire and Air, and water to clense the surface, so that new growth could have a better chance. One could not live with each other. She knew above all else that one element alone could not survive for long.

Her bare feet moved along the grass, dirt and sand. Her stepps where light, as her mind tapped into the very soul of the earth, listening to the very Heartbeat of Gaia herself. Lia began to dance, a light stepped dance, moving like the wind across the earth, easy and graceful. The steps started slow, then picked up pace, as a intricate spiral dance emerged. she laughed as she danced, her long hair flowing free, decorated with berries, leaves and carefully spun spider webs. Dew glistened in the webs, making her hair look like it was encrusted with jewels.Freedom comes costly:

OOC: Rain isn't outside my element, i control the weather and rain is apart of that. A little geography lesson. Water from the lakes, oceans etc. evapourates as the heat from the sun hits it. As the vapour rises it becomes colder and through condensation turns into cloud. The clouds are then under my domain, therefore i can summon rainfall. I may be trying to convert your alli but this is war, plus it is up to the earth element to decide what she wants to do.


IC: Screamer watched as the ball of lava hurled towards him, he dove to the side however the lave grazed his left wing setting it alight. Fear clutching at him, he desperately tried to put out the small inferno. The pain was intense. He fell to the ground and put out his blazing wing. Looking at Drake who was weakining as a result of the rain, Screamer just as weakend did not see this skirmish going anywhere. Hurling a bolt of lighting he then took off into the darkening sky to nurse his wounds.'From earth to sky, from leaves to roots,

OOC: I understand how weather works. I do have more than a 3rd grade education. Its just that aqua already claimed she was the one to be able to control weather not you. But then again. It is your thread.

Drake swung with his sword, deflecting the lightning bolt then watches as Wind Screamer flew away.He turned around back towards the mountain in which Lia resides at. He lifted his hand and snapped his fingers. Immediatly 40 fire warriors appeared.

"Lets go pay a visit to our 'ally'.Drake said to his men. They walked towards the mountain with his dragon walking behind keeping a watchfull eye on everything. After a while they found the Earth Element sitting ona rock with a stag and wolf. He approached her and pulled his sword out again.

"Swear allegiance to me now or suffer the consequences." Drake said calmy as the point of his sword pressed against her neck producing a bead of silvery blood." With a snap of my fingers your forest will be burnt down if you defect."Drake said letting rage take his words."Splatter?I have never in my life splattered!" Fizban said to Tasslehoff.

Lia looked calmly at Drake. "You wouldn't Dare. Burn my forest, and the earth will swallow you. like the mountain swallows the lava of a Volcano. Burn my forest...and the other elements will help me rebuild it." She stood, never flinching at the sword that cut at her throat.

"Threats never win wars Drake. The Gods before us learned this Ages ago. I willl join you....for now...if only to show you weak minded fools that the elements cannot exist without each other...not here..." she said her dark eyes locked with Drakes'.

The stag and wolf also stood, walking near Lia. Up close Drake could see a small star-like mark on her forhead. She smiled as he noticed it. "In Years past...I was known to humans as the Forestmaster...to This day, many still call me that, though my form is different." She turned away from him. "Though that form is still mine to control." She said laughing.

Lia's form shimmered, like moonlight on water. Drake blinked and a pure white Unicorn stared down at him. Merriment lit her eyes as she laughed. The laugh itself was like the soft tinkling of water over stones. The Unicorn wheeled, and galloped off into the forest.Freedom comes costly:

((OOC: Nice touch, Kalia!! Hehe. Oh and it's fine that Mythran calls Lyra a child, she looks and acts like one most of the time.

Hm...who to side with...how would Lyra act...hmmm...))

Lyra gazed at the other with childlike innocence as he asked her if she were prepared for what was to come. Pan came to sit by her side, a cunning and thoughtful fox.

Lyra placed a hand on her daemon and stroked him lovingly. This was something they had to agree on...their differences were many but that just helped them to be a whole person, possessing things that would be lost without the other. But this was too big for them to not be of like minds. Pan whispered in her thoughts--he would never talk to another person but her--and the child nodded, turning to stare out into the battlefield with an intensity that was simply wrong for her young eyes.

"They are wrong," she said with sudden certainty. "They don't understand how this will affect the Dust, the world...their very souls. I will be a part of this, I must be, and I will be prepared. But first I must find someone who understands."

Standing, the child started to walk away, a small, black hawk flying just above her head. Almost as an afterthought, she twitched and then turned and gave Mythran a hurried and awkward bow before turning and running through the open field.

Lia, the forestmaster stared after Drake's departure. She shook her proud head as the master of Fire left her realm. She knew he was proud...but she never expected him to be so foolish as well.

Lia stayed in her form from the past. The Forestmaster looked at the darkening sky, her large eyes filled with compassion at the wars that would be fought for the sake of power. "the only weakness is the subborn refusal to believe that one needs help to exist....that all things have their purpose...and that with out one, like a thread of a spider web, with out one single thread, the entire thing could come crashing down.

Lia shifted her form, and looked up at the stars. deep in her heart she could feel the beat of the earth below her feet. and silently, as before, started into her dance. Moonlight shone down on her, as she danced within her small clearing. The animals and creatures of the forest stood at the edges, watching their mistress dance to the rythm of Life.Freedom comes costly:

Drake flew down into his courtyard and stormed into his council room.

"Recent events have brought me to announce the attack early. We will attack starting now." Drake said in a deep commanding voice."We will attack air first. Then we'll move onto water unless they team up."

Drake walked out onto the balcony overlooking his army. The majority of his army was his own creations but he did have some loyal humans and other creatures. He had a platoon of agres as a heavy squad.He also had 3 dark elves he kept hidden from everyone else including his council. They were more magically powerful than all his mages combined excluding himself of course. But they would make themselves knwon in this next battle.

She was on a mission of her own, she should never have suggested that a man go and do the job taht she should have done herself! One last leap and she was at the shoreline that boarderd the forest home of Lia. She morphed back into her lnd form and wondered into the forest, her shell skirt jingling softly against her legs.
She came upon the clearing and watched Lia's graceful movements. She moved into view and let Lia notice her at her own leisure. The last thing she wanted was to disrupt the earth goddess. She sat on a small moss covered rock, moonlight playing in her long cerrulian hair, and waited.Ray: It looks like a giant Jello mould!!

Lyra continued to run till Pan bid her stop. Impatiently, the human brushed a lock of golden hair from her blue eyes and asked why she had stopped.

"Hush. I hear something." Pan said. He flew higher and higher, stretching the limits of their bond till Lyra shifted uncomfortably. "I see...someone dancing."

Lyra blinked in astonishment and started running again. Pan soared ahead of her, coming upon the clearing where Lia, the Goddess of the Earth, danced to the beat of Life.

Lyra stumbled into the clearing after Pan and her daemon dived into her arms becoming a small ermine. With a childlike curiousity, they stared at the beauty and rhythm before them, not at all ashamed of barging in on this sacred moment.

Do you think she's the one? Do you think she understands? Pan whispered into Lyra's mind.

"I don't know," Lyra murmured back, content to stand in the clearing and stare."I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and

Drake went into his secret chambers at the top of the center tower."We are at war. I need you three. It will be a massive onslaught and we will have the upper hand."he said turning to each of them.

"We are going to hit them with great numbers and strategic plans have already been made. I will also be using high levels of magic so you three will need to be there. Your time has come to show me your loyalty."Drake said pacing back and forth."Bring yur faithful familiars."At those words a small winged demon flew over and landed on ones shoulder. A great white tiger walked over to another's. Finally a massive minotaur pounded its way to stand beside the last one.

"Forgive my intrusion, Forest Master, but I felt the need to speak with you.........about this foolish war." Aqua said softly, rising from her rock with graceful liquidity and taking two steps towards Lia.
"I am affraid. I'm affraid that things are going to spiral so out of control that we won't be able to stop them. I understand, as well as the next person, that all four elements must co-exisit peacfully, should balance be able to be maintained. Yet Drake has become thirsty in his hunt for power, and unless we can convince him to see sense, we are all doomed, for he is very powerful." She paused, bending to examine a moonflower that bloomed just at the outside of the clearing. She gently let her fingers trace over the soft surface of the petals as she continued.
"However, I don't agree with the way Wind Screamer is going about this, declaring war and such.

His army stood ready, as did his mages, though he knew that they would not stand up against Drake for long, hopefully they would deal him a severe blow.

His main defense was his orbs of illusion. Spheres of crystal, that created false images to throw the enemy off, however should this tactic ever fail, they emmit a devastating bolt of pure energy from which lightning is made. They were already set up around the Citadel, thousands of them.

He waited silently...for Drake to come.

Drake was not worried. He had years and years of experience. He could take anyone. But he knew he should not be so confident. Wind Screamer was one of the 4 major Elements. Nonetheless Drake was calm and somehow felt he had this in control. He watches as his platoon of Minotaurs moved forward on huge hooves.He had his 3 Dark Elves with him in his Dragon Driven chariot.

Drake and his army were racing towards Wind Screamers. Drake gave the order to stop. He felt something powerful. Magic orbs. It was time for his secret plan. He looked up at the skies. It was clear and sunny. He threw his hands up in the air and chanted words of magic over and over. The sky darkened. Dark clouds began to gather over his army. Spiraling outward came a Black pit in the sky.As Drake watched, dragon upon dragon flew out and landed behind his army. They were all black dragons. The riders were all cloaked in black robes. The head dragon rider dismounted and approached Drake.

"Hail Herr Skroth!"Richard bellowed out to the robed figure. Slowly the man drew back his hood revealing a face out of nightmares..."Splatter?I have never in my life splattered!" Fizban said to Tasslehoff.

Name: Skrothalas (Skroth)
Gender: male
Age: undetermined.
personality:calm, cruel and evil .. will stop at nothing to rule the Elements
Weapon: an ancient elven rune staff
Backround:
Skroth was a High Council Member of the Elves long ago. Skrothalas was a good elf with ambitions of learning as much magic as he could. After Skroth learned almost all the elven magic he traveled throughout the lands of the elements and sub-elements learning the most he could from generals and mages during the short time of peace after the last Elemental War. On his quest to learn he met many mages from different lands who wanted to join this mighty mage (who was vastly greater than they)and dedicated themselves to serve him. When Skroth returned from his journeys he erected a mighty magical tower on the outskirts of the elven lands and set up his wizards guild. He studied his spell books he acquired day and night. After he mastered the majority of his collection he was suddenly drawn to the dark powers. He started studying them and learned their magicks. After a while the dark powers corrupted this noble elf mage. He was soon cast out from the elven society and became a renegade Dark Elf.



Spells: Skroth knows major elemental spells and can even rival the revered Element lords with their opposing element, but is not as good as the Elemental lords's own magic.


IC: Skroth drew back his hood slowly. His face was covered in scars he had acquired over the years. His almond shaped beady eyes glanced shiftily about. He finally locked his gaze on Drake and a small smile curved his lips.

"Brother Drake! How good it is to see you." Skroth said looking his friend up and down. "You have called for me. I have brought my most trusted and loyal mages."

"I thank you for hastening to my side."Richard said." I have need of your help in-"

"Destroying these orbs of illusion? Yes i have sensed them since i have stepped foot here." skroth said with a smirk." Fear them not. My mages and i will have no troube in dealing with them."

"Thank you dearly, friend."Drake said almost with sincerety. But Drake never shows emotion other than anger.

Skroth motioned for his men to gather around him. "We will split up and i want you to destroy these orbs of illusion. After that. Wind Screamer's army will be easy prey. I have a feeling that Wind Screamer is holding back and is using these orbs to disguise that." Skroth told them.

Skroth then dismissed them and walked back to Drake. "I hope my three most trusted mages havent caused you any trouble."

Drake had momentarily forgotten about them. " Oh they have been a great help in planning this attack with me. I would trust each one with my life. But upon your request i kept them hidden." Drake continued.

Skroth let out a small laugh." They will be your personal body guards in this battle. Even though i know you need no such foolish things. It wouldn't be a bad thing to be overly cautious would it? Anyway we need to rid ourselves of these orbs quickly."

With that Skroth turned around and walked away. He walked up the tallest hill he could find and used his magic to find these orbs. He located each one as did his fellow mages. He called upon power enough to level this landscape and the orbs shattered. Each of his mages did this until there were none left...

Watching his orbs of illusion shatter, Wind Screamer grew enraged. He eyed the mage. "I will take care of you later Mage, not even your lord Drake will save you." he whispered. Walking out onto the balcony, he raised his staff.

The winds grew stronger and the clouds darkend. Rain slashed and lightning forked through the sky. "You are in my realm now Drake, do not think this will be easy, it will take more than mages to bring me to my knees!"

Pointing towards the advancing army, razor sharp winds streaked forward, slashing and slicing into his minotaurs. Hail stones the size of small boulders, plumeted from the heavens, beating upon the enemy. 'From earth to sky, from leaves to roots,

Drake watched as the ice boulders crashed into his army. It was time. He gave the signal to charge again and his army sped up into a sprint towards their enemy. Drake got back into his charito and gestured for his Dark Elf mages to join him. He flew high above. Now was the time for battle.

But you would do well to hide from the words of her..." she says, indicating Aqua. "She yearns to join the battle...and three against one is very nice odds."

Holding Pan Lyra gazed at Lia, willing her to understand, while her daemon continued to glare at the Goddess of Water.

Drake watched as the wind warriors came rushing to meet his army."Now!" Drake bellowed. At once Rank upon rank of Minotaur sprinted to meet their foe. When they met it was carnage thought impossible. Peices of wind armor flew everywhere. But it was no better for Drakes Minotaurs. As Drake watched three of his towering beasts feel to their hands. These wind warriors are tough.

Now for my second plan Drake said to himself. He closed his eyes and held out his hand. Another portal opened up in front of his. (remember my huge 'beast in training' at the beginning? well this is him) A huge hulking beast the size of a ten story house lumbered out. It threw back its massive head and let out an earsplitting roar that showed its sword like fangs. "Good. Kneel down." Drake commanded and the beast kneeled down putting his head on the ground. Drake walked over to it and hopped onto its back and sat down on the saddle there right behind its small pointy ears. "Now onto battle!""Splatter?I have never in my life splattered!"

I have come to understand, as she already knew, that each element needs the other in order to co exisit and thrive. I was hoping that she would understand, but obviously, I am seen as an enemy here, though I know not what I have done." She sighed and turned her back to the small group.

((OOC: Nice avatar thingie, Kalia. Hehe.))

Lyra stood, stunned, her innocent eyes moving back and forth between the elemental goddesses. Aqua stood silently, in triumph, Lia...the Forestmaster...knelt near the young human, urging her to climb up and ride with them.

Lyra took a few steps back. Dust was everywhere, swirling and darkening...gold to black...life to death...

Pan! she cried out, anguished. How could this happen, Pan?!

The small ermine daemon had no answer, no reason for the darkening of the sky, the cryptic wail of the wind...

Human and daemon alike looked to the Forestmaster, radiant and powerful...but her beauty wilted before their eyes as a flower dies with the first harsh realities of winter.

"I thought you understood..." she whispered, her voice lost and alone in a roaring gale. Turning, she fled into the woods as fast as her small legs could carry her. Green grass whithered beneath her feet as she fled from the Black Dust, feeling it nip at her heels.

Eventually, she came to where she had been before...a land sorched by armies long gone. She leap through it blindly, as a deer from a forest fire and stumbled into warm arms.

She looked up, her blue eyes wild with fear. Mythran, the man she had spoken to before...collapsing into his embrace, the child began to sob. "I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and

The great beast Drake had brought forward was impressive. Screamer had to give Drake some credit, he had a sound mind for tatics. He looked around at the mages and dragons preparing to begin an onslaught against his citadel. The fools. They obviously do not know the full power of an Elemental Lord.

These petty skirmishes were nothing compared to the power he would unlease. But such power would ruin the balance. Drake had pushed him too far now. The power hungry fiend must be stopped.

Walking out to the balcony, he faced the dragons and their riders. Holding a palm out towards them he began to summon power. The very source of all their power, from where they where created, out of the shadow and the light. He tapped into it.

Drake would feel him doing so, as would the other Lords, he stilled it for the now and would wait for a short while longer, to see if Aqua would come to his aid. If not, he would release the power of the Elements.'From earth to sky, from leaves to roots,

Something made Drakes head snap up to the flying Citadel. Wind Screamer wsa using powerful magic. Well it was about time for Drake to do the same. He brought his hand up and took off the amulet he always wore to battle, feel to his knees, and began to chant. Light surrounded by dark started swirling around the amulet. A great fissure in the ground opened up and a loud roar broke from it.

From the dark depths of the fissure flew a massive drake. It had bright blue spine scales, black back scales, and grey under belly scales. It was heavily covered in burnished gold armour.

Drake put the amulet away as the great dragon landed beside him. He then focused his attention to the mages flying toward the citadel. He used his telepathic powers to get a messege to his old friend. Get away from The Citadel NOW!

The dragons went into a steep dive then and landed on the ground. Drake looked back to the mighty dragon before him. "Come LifeBane. This battle is for me not my disciples."

With that drake flew into the air towards the citadel."Splatter?I have never in my life splattered!" Fizban said to Tasslehoff.

Lyra blinked the tears from her blue eyes and looked up at Mythran. She searched him with her gaze and he knew that she was seeing something he could not, something that was a unknown part of his being. Finally, she nodded and spoke, her voice small.

"Yes, yes...I will join you." Wiping her eyes on her sleeve, the young girl stood and reached for Pan. The daemon, a puppy with large sorrowful eyes, leaped into her arms and turned to stare with her at Mythran. "I don't know half of you half as well as I should like; and

Drake circled the flying citadel looking down on the battle below. His minotaurs were doing reasonably well. His beast of destruction was doing just that. It cut bloody swathes through the ranks of Wind warriors (lets assume they have blood).

Screamer watched as his warriors were picked off one at a time. He never knew his capacity for rage until now. It grew to new heights the more Drake pushed him. "Very well Drake" Raising his hands he called upon the essence of the elements.

It danced around him, on him, through him.

It sparkled in his blood, washing over him in waves of euphoria. Invoking such power was boardering on madness if it wasn't already. The rift would ripped the land apart for miles around. He did not wish such a fate for mortal kind and his fellow Lords, even Drake.

Calling to his followers he told them to retreat. They done so without question. He ordered his mages to transport the entire Citadel away and leave him behind. They were obviously reluctant at first but obeyed him.

Once away, Screamer hovered silently in mid-air watching Drake. The Fire Lord undoubtably knew what was to happen now. Gathering the essence, Wind Screamer was preparing to let it loose upon the world.'From earth to sky, from leaves to roots,

OOC: i have been waiting to se if the water and earth were coming tothe battle. oh well i will just carry on.

BIC: Now that his followers were out of harm, Screamer could unlease the power. Raising his hands skywards with outstreched palms, the Master Lord of the Sky brought the power forward.

Tendrils of coloured smoke encircled Screamer, he became lost in the magic, it blinded him, pained him. It was euphoria.....an intoxicating sensation that if this worked he would never feel again....

The ground began to shake for miles around, an earthquake that could rival the cataclysm itself. Mountains began to crumble and the sky shrieked in rage, as though the Gods themselves were commanding him to stop, but he would not, he could not. The power had been called and there was no way back.

The very air around him burned and crackled. Sweat ran into his eyes and blood dripped from his mouth. A dark void began to form in front of Screamer and something...an image swirled in it. It cleared somewhat...a barren landscape devoid of life. Shadows scurried about the barren wasteland wondering what was transpiring....it was the Abyss. It's very heart.

A dark wind began to suck everything into it. Screamer was drawing near it but he stilled himself with dense air. If Drake is sucked into the Abyss then i will follow, for it is the only way to shut the door...but not until he his in there...then maybe this War of the Elements will cease or carry on for eternity in the bowls of the Abyss where it cannot harm anyone

Flaming gouts of black lightning forked out of the void and began to hammer Drakes sheilds. For now Screamer controlled the power of the Abyss but it was waning, even he could not control such power for long.

He saw that Wind Screamer was weakening. Maybe if he kept on dodging these lightning bolts, Wind Screamer would lose control..... He redirected his attention back to the black lightning bolts. He dodged them again, only this time, just barely. He didn't know if he himself could keep this up...... The lightning redirected again and came at him. He went to dodge but wasn't fast enough as it bounced off his reflecting shield. One shield down. Drake didnt know if he could keep this up........."Splatter?I have never in my life splattered!"

Drake was evading him for now, and he could feel his grip on the power loosening. NO!! I cannot loose it now...he is nearly mine Screaming in rage, Screamer intensified the power, so that more than just lightning followed Drake, shadows from the Abyss pursued him.

OOC: I didn't know if this thread was coming to an end yet or not, i thought that if we all got pulled into the Abyss then it would be a conclusion. I don't know if the others had lost an interest in it. Being pulled into the Abyss would bring balance back on Krynn. If you have other ideas, please say so.'From earth to sky, from leaves to roots,

The shadows cought up with him and started spiraling around creating an outer casing of shadows. Drake couldn't move. He could see his numerous dragons through gaps int he shadows attempting to rescue him. Nothing would help now. The elemental lords were doomed.......

Drake caught a glimpse of the black lightning streak at him and then everything went black. Seemingly hours later he woke up on some sort of barren wasteland. Wind screamer was there.....along with all the other lords.

"What have you done?!"Drake screamed."You've ruined everything!" He continued. Out of the shadows........large shapes were emerging.......

BIC: Screamer stood up, still dis-orientated from the power. He could only faintly hear Drake shouting at him. Then dark shapes emerged from the shadows. One of them was the Dark Queen in her monterous form of the five headed dragon. Each head, swaying back and forward hissing loudly.

She looked at Screamer. You would dare use my power pathetic creature for your own purposes!

Her voice resonated through his head, causing a great deal of pain. "I am Wind Screamer, Lord the Sky, Mighty Queen....I used the power of the Abyss to ensnare Lord Drake in hear...so that balance may be restored to the mortal plane."

I know who you are Wind Screamer, after all i helped create you out of the shadow and the light....a place i intend to send you back to for your insolence!! All around the Dark Queen, energy buzzed. Screamer grew weak and his form being to dissapate back into nothingness.

Combining his magic of time and space with the multi-planer magic of Lyra, Mythran stepped through the portal, and yet, did not. It seemed that he was on all planes of existance at once. Looking at Lyra for an instant, he said softly to her, "forgive me, child, for what I must do."

Mythran looked at the rapidly fading air elemental, and the shocked fire elemental in the abyss. He looked on Aqua in her watery palace and Lia in here mountain retreat. He appeared to each of the lesser elements, and to the gods themselves.

"STOP!" He commanded. And the multiverse froze.

Although none could move, Mythran spoke into the minds of each of the elements and gods at once. "I warned you all that this would happen. That the balance would falter. And still, you allowed your petty greed for power lead to this. You blame Drake, but he is not to blame alone. It is every one of you who is at fault. Those of you who aided him in his plans and those who decided to work against him. Even those who chose to remain neutral, such as you gods and the lightning elemental are guilty for not looking to prevent this. Only one elemental heeded my words and tried to stop this. Lyra Starsoul of the dust. But her power was not great enough to stop this.

Not even my power was great enough to prevent this. True, I am at fault as well. Perhaps I could have done more. I was far too optimistic of the options that could happen. But the time for past regrets is past. What is important now is the balance. When I release the hold on time, Wind Screamer will disappear entirely. Without him to hold the element of wind in check, the elements will shift out of alignment. This can not be allowed to happen. While I could recue him, I will not. Rescueing him now would only delay the enevitable.

Even I can not forsee all of the posibilities of what I am about to do. Perhaps it is better that way.

Concentrating on a version of himself in the center of the entire multiverse, he began to recite his spell. "Final Contingency" The words echoed throughout all of creation, a wave touching every life in the multiverse. Most, the wave past without a trace. It then gathered itself around each of the elementals, major and minor alike. It cast each of them in a shimering glow.

Lyra, standing in Mythran's laboratory, stared at Pan. He was glowing with the strange aura, and yet, she was not. As she pondered what this meant, Mythran's voice came to her again. "As you have cared for the balance of the elements, you shall now be their care-taker."

Mythran then spoke to the others again. "Lyra has proven to me her ability to control the dust. When my spell is completed, that is what we will become. We can not allow the balance to falter, and so, we must set it to nil. Your elemental powers will be maintained, but your bodies will not. You will retain your form only as the dustmaster permits. In this, I include myself as well." With that, Mythran again concentrated on the end of the spell, and prepared the final phrase.


(OOC: I hope this meets with everybody's approval. If anybody has an objection, and a really good reason, (or a better idea for what the spell does.), I'll wait until this time tommorow before I end the spell.)

OOC: How could you rescue Wind Screamer from Tahky? No element, main or sub, could accomplish that."Splatter?I have never in my life splattered!" Fizban said to Tasslehoff.

(OOC: I froze time. Or if you prefer, either he is reincarnated in the dust, along with everybody else, or Mythran traveled back in time a few seconds when he went to the abyss. If you have a better idea, please tell me and I will edit my post.)The sword, it thirsts to drink of man.

"Scivante Escazimoth" Mythran shouted as he ended the spell. "This is the end." he then muttered softly as the spell ran its corse. The elementals held for a minute, then each one exploded in a burst of light and dust.

Time began.

seconds ticked by which felt like millinea for the elementals, and then, they bagan to take shape again. They looked about them selves to see Lyra standing before them. Mythran and the prime elementals stood in front, with the others behind them. Though they were whole once more, each felt, different. Like something was missing. Then they realized what it was.

Their daemons.

(OOC: Ok, to sum it up, the daemons of the elementals now belong to Lyra, its up to her to decide what she does with them. Maybe they become similar to pan or something. I don't know, but she can't give them back, and she is in charge of them. As to the elementals themselves, wer're all made of dust now. This limits us to some extent. Dust is a summation with equal parts of all elements, just as aether is the absence of the main elements. Everybody still has control over their own element, but ultimetly, Lyra is in control of all of you. I'm going to stop there and let you come up with the rest on your own. Lyra, it up to you to rap this up.)The sword, it thirsts to drink of man.

OOC: Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa...... You just turn us all into Daemons then just turn us over? I liked Wind Screamer's idea better but obviously that was blown away even though most of it had already taken place."Splatter?I have never in my life splattered!" Fizban said to Tasslehoff.
