OCC:Uh...Zell, in order to make a story that people want to join you had best write a little bit of a back story to it (I.E A dark necromancer has created an amulet that steals the hope of people that he comes in contact with, and if he isnt defeated, no one will have the will to fight him...something like that)
Its just not an intresting (or rational) story the way you have it.
Perhaps you should check out the thread "New Character Advice" and take some hints from other peoples postings on how to play a character.
Thats all for now, maybe I'll join this thread if it becomes a little more intresting.
Thats all for now.

*giggle* Come on Zell...you've been here long enough to know how it's done! In your dreams magical thoughts
all things are real unless you dream they're not
In your dreams love is the thought
carried on wings of hope

instantly we see it
the time is growing near
when everything is pinned on a hope
let the dreams of your heart
brillianly shine as one

OOC:Give the guy a break......perhaps it is just one of those threads that develops as people post.......and swiftfire we can't all be as creatively inventive as you now can we.....its hardly a boost in self confidence when someone laughs at your thread......even if meant as a joke. Don't mean to be nippy....just voicing myself. Til the heart's blood boils or the bones be ash,

Aww that’s kinda mean, everyone was a newbee to begin with. We all have to start somewhere even if our stories lack some....ummm spunk.
I'm still working towards 100 posts (good ones mind u). And I don’t think that puttin down anyone (who hasn’t reached that lvl yet) will help them write better. Newbees still have a long way to go, so give us a chance.:P

Insano smacks Leandra across the face "Quiet newbie, you dont deserve to speak like this, stay in your place little one" sneers Insano. (HEHEHEHEHE, Just kidding) :D :D I take it all back

I think we need more positive re-enforcement in here, I suppose the only advice is read and learn..Hello, My name is Insano, I started posting here in December 2000. I'm a virgo. Most people like me; they find me attractive. They also find me absolutley amazing in bed. I started posting with nothing but an old Pentium 200 and a 33.6 modem.

But seriously, I am really good in bed. :D :D :D

I didn't laugh. And if you think I did laugh then fine.

I'd love to join, and I'm not about to make fun of anyone at this point, seeing as I'm an extreme newbie myself. I'll give it a try. Are you looking for any types of characters in particular?

Oh, and does this adventure start in any particular place/time/etc.? You're description sounded intriguing but it was just a bit ambiguous.

nope anything from dragons to kender is ok by me.

it starts off in mt nevermind just after the chaos wars.


it was a long dark night in mt nevermind when lockjaw the greatest ogre warrior and protecter of pygmy prince of the gnomes awoke.

"i better cheack on the prince." thought lockjaw. "maybe he is planning to sneak away from his dutys as a prince. so lockjaw puts on his gold armor his enchanted battleaxe darkstar and his hat that was made from griffon feathers. slowly walking out into the hall seeing noone he continued then alloff a sudden he saw the guards out side of prince pygmys room... were dead. he draws darkstar. and enters the room. pygmy is... GONE."i'm not the light but the darkness in which surrounds it." - me

Avalyn Starling was on one of her midnight walks through the gnome fortress of Mt. Nevermind. She carried a beaten up old quarterstaff, her only means of self defense, as a walking stick. She wandered about, lost in one of her daydreams. As she approached the room of the gnome prince Pygmy, she was struck with a sense of dark foreboding. "Probably just overdramatic me again." she muttered, proceeding down the darkened corridor. She stopped short when she saw the prostrate forms of the two dead guards lying near the prince's room. She stared at the dead bodies for a moment, wondering what had killed them. "Must be some gnomish invention gone awry again." she thought. Just to make sure, she peered into around the door into the prince's room. She could just make out the form of Lockjaw, the prince's guardian, standing in the dim light of the bedroom.

OOC: Avalyn is a human from a village near Icereach, adopted at a young age by parents of mixed kender heritage. She traveled throughout Krynn in her youth, eventually settling in Palanthas to become a cleric of Mishakal. Her clerical powers failed following the summer of Chaos. She set off to travel Krynn, retaining some basic healing skills as well as rudimentary fighting abilities.“We pity him. We hate him.

OOC: Ah. This thread has begun. I'm giving you my blessing then.

Somewhere else in Mount Nevermind. A group of gnomes gathered around a huge imposing-looking machine.

"LadiesandGentlemen,thisismylatestinvention!TheDeusExMachinaofdoom,deathanddevastationanddoomanddevastation
anddeathanddeathanddoomanddevastationanddeathanddevastationand doom... wait,I'mrepeatingmyself." The gnomish inventor scratched his head.

The other gnomes clapped unenthusiastically.

BOOOOOOOOOOOM!

The machine exploded. There was doom, death and devastation."I am the LEGENDARY, MANLY MAGE, Eliar Swiftfire! EMBODIMENT OF COOLNESS, LOVER OF EASY WOMEN! And... I'm out of cash." -Eliar Swiftfire in 'The Future Fellowship'

An old gnome shook his head in sadness after hearing the most recent tragedy. Mount Nevermind had went crazy nowadays... first, a large party were killed horribly thanks to an invention gone awry. And most recently, some idiotic, half-wit, bumbling fool came back from his journeys, bringing along some ogre along with him. Things weren't that bad, but this IDIOT called himself a prince!!

But then, that idiot's gone. Things in Mount Nevermind will get back to normal again. The old gnome grinned happily at the thought of it.

Another gnomish invention exploded nearby. The old gnome was reduced to ashes."I am the LEGENDARY, MANLY MAGE, Eliar Swiftfire! EMBODIMENT OF COOLNESS, LOVER OF EASY WOMEN! And... I'm out of cash." -Eliar Swiftfire in 'The Future Fellowship'

A blue-cloaked figure watches the explosion and the death of the gnome; silently she whip’s out a note pad and begins to scribble something down....

Old gnome....death by explosion...character creation/manipulation by E.Swiftfire....13th observation...

Then in a POOF! She disappears.

Avalyn heard an explosion several levels below, and rushed off to examine the cause. Even after several months in Mount Nevermind, she hadn't adjusted to the frequent crashes and bangs. She ran off down the twisted hallways, after several minutes and gnome flinger rides she arrived at the site of the explosion, only to find smoldering ashes and what looked like gnome remains lying on the ground. She wrinkled up her nose and wandered off, the dead guards outside Pygmy's room quite forgotten. “We pity him. We hate him.

ooc: its leading to adventure but first we must have a reason 2 leave so pygmy gets gnomenapped and while we set out find him the gods give us a quest to destroy an evil necromancer who is part elf part dwarf.

lockjaw then turns lights a candle while searching he found a note which reads as follows

"i want 2,000 pieses of copper for the princes return."
"i'm not the light but the darkness in which surrounds it." - me

OOC: Once again, i suggest you read some OOC messages here carefully first. There is NO prince in Mount Nevermind. Even if there is one, 2000's pretty cheap, no?

Oh, unless you want to go with my idea, that this 'prince' is actually just some crazy gnome who calls himself 'prince'."I am the LEGENDARY, MANLY MAGE, Eliar Swiftfire! EMBODIMENT OF COOLNESS, LOVER OF EASY WOMEN! And... I'm out of cash." -Eliar Swiftfire in 'The Future Fellowship'
