It has been 10 years since caramon sacrificed himself along with kit to save the world from the evil plans of their brother raistlin whom had become a God (See Caramon the Conqueror). The balance restored, everything seemed to return to normal. Unbeknownst to but a few.......their was a new threat to the world of krynn............and perhaps.......even beyond.

Thought to have died in the decisive battle for life and death between raistlin and fistindantilous.....both survived. Weak and near death Fistindantilous cast a spell which would propell his essence into the depths of all planes, and thus he survived.

And now.......He has returned.

With the aid of Nuitari angered at the death of his mother, Fisty returns upon krynn to convert all mages to see the darkness, creating an imbalance that not even the gods can feel safe.

An epic battle never before seen upon krynn looms as those that were created to serve, dare challenge even the gods. The destiny of Krynn and worlds beyond loomed in the balance......And thus began the era which were to be called.......

"I sense a strong powerful presence... a presence of pure terrible evil..." A white robed figure said quietly. "What could it be?"

BLAM!

BIC: Gilean sat at his table as usual writing all the things that wold come to pass upon krynn. He had written undisturbed since the beginning of time and only on a very small few occasions did he ever stop writing.

A bead of sweat rolled down his bald brow and a breif look of concerne flashed across his always nonemotional gaze as he carefully laid down his ink pen and turned his attention to the door that until this time had been shut.

"Come in" he called, and with a gesture the door swung open to show a stunned betrem (he was always amazed at how gilean would do that) and a black robed mage. "Master the mage..p p p Palin Majere request your counsel. I i i tried to stop him but........" A quick nod was enough to quiet the nervous betrem as he quickly dismissd himself. He remebered all to well the last time a black robed mage had requested an audience with his master.

"I know why you have come......Palin but i cannont help you."

Palin sat cooley in the adjoining chair letting the soft velvet feel of his robes nestle loosley against his slim elven frame. "Yes...i knew that is what you would say. And none the less i come to seek your counsel..."
He paused as a thin mist began to materilize near him. The smell of spell components grew strong in the air as Tanis appeared before the two, looking just as concerned......and none too happy to see that Palin was also thinking the same thoughts as himself, or he undoubitly would not have been here.

"So news travels fast I see" Palin said with a smirk."
Tanis only frowned as he replied...."What are you talking about? I was summoned here by gilean. Not to meet with a meddlsome ambitious black robe." Palin only grinned with mock subjection as they both turned to look at gilean who had once again began to write in his book.

Without even looking up he spoke......."You both are here because the wolrd is once again in grave danger......a danger never before experienced.....for it not only threatens this world.......but beyond. I will not disrupt the balance and try to infuence the future...the future is yours to choose i only document it. You have come here it is what must be. Your quarters are ready, disturb me no further.

In the blink of an eye they were in a large room filled as far as the eye could see with books. "What is the meaning of this?" Tanis shouted.
Palin looked with disinterest at tanis "You know the danger......in your heart you know what is happening."

"He has come back"

They both stood in silence, the erie silence of the library did not help to sooth their thoughts.....there would be much to talk about.....and much to study. The fate of many depended on it."So what is it? Do you just flip a coin in the morning to decide what you will be for the day? Heads Knight of Neraka Tails Solamnic Knight :D"

((OOC: I will, of course, be playing Tanis and his love, Melethka. I noted that none of the significant characters represent the Balance so hopefully I can find some meaningful part for her. Or did she die? Hehe. I really don't remember. Maybe she did. Oh well, resurrections are cliche but fun all the same.

I'll also take on Odillia, if no one else claims her and Ontarys feels swamped.

Ta for now. Off to read the original and see what I've forgotten. lol.))Computer games don't affect kids…if Pacman had affected us as kids, we’d all be running around in darkened rooms munching on magic pills and listening to repetitive electronic music.

OCC: good point..... i see that...so i added additional chars ;) see above."So what is it? Do you just flip a coin in the morning to decide what you will be for the day? Heads Knight of Neraka Tails Solamnic Knight :D"

((OOC: Interesting...this does present a problem. I reread all of Caramon the Conquerer and it seems that I never said whether Melethka died or not...however, if Ulin is the head of the Red Robes, it would suggest that she is dead or retired...and honestly, what are the chances of her retiring? :D

However, I noted the importance that Gilean showed towards Melethka, being the last of her Order, ('specially since I wrote it, haha) and I have come to the conclusion that she can't just be dead...so I'm going to start something and hopefully it can be incorporated into the overall plot.

I know you, Ontarys, will probably object to one of my characters being central to the story again (ha ha), but try to include her as the Chosen One, or something equally cliche. (Just kidding. My, my, aren't we in a mood today?)))


"So you still think putting them in the same room was a sane idea?"

Gilean didn't so much as twitch an eyelid to acknowledge the presense of His avatar as she emerged from the shadows. Melethka waited, then sighed, passing an unfeeling hand through her auburn hair. Her perfect auburn hair. Everything about her was perfect now...not a single wrinkle, nor speck of dirt...just perfect. Like a doll. Like an unfeeling, cold, dead doll that could never love like...

You pine for him.

"Of course I pine for him!" she snapped. Gilean didn't respond and a long silence stretched between them with only the irregular scratches of a quill to keep the avatar from thinking she had gone deaf.

Finally, she had to cover that incessant noise and sighed again, loudly. "Of course I pine for him," she repeated, with control but no less conviction. "And...I pine for myself. We both know why I am here, we both know this half-life that I lead."

The God finally glanced up from his work. The child?

"Sleeping," she murmured. Of course the child. Always the child. My child. Tanis's...child.

Her bright blue eyes shone with a weariness she could not express. Her half-life prevented such things as physical longing...but that didn't make her need him any less. She stood against the door, touching the barrier with perfect fingers. He was so close and yet worlds away...

Gilean turned to a new page.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tanis Half-Elven shivered in his white robes as they did little to block out the sense of death that saturated this incredible library. It gnawed at him, feeding his fear and those awful dreams...dreams of her death, her disappearance...

He wanted to fight, he wanted to flee. He wanted to launch himself apon Palin with all the rage that was burning in his torn soul.

He, of course, did nothing. The fate of the world was resting on his shoulders. Again.

And he would work with his enemies. He would serve his chosen path, the path of goodness through magic, and bring light where others cast darkness. He would protect even those who scorned him, and, if need be, lay the sacrifice of his soul apon the alter of freedom.

Again.

Palin was right. He did know deep in his heart that he had come back. He did know what was happening and what it could mean. He just wasn't sure if he cared.

But he could fake it. And damned if he wasn't going to take his anger out on Palin in the meantime.

Seizing a large tome from the nearest shelf, the half-elf slammed it down on a nearby table. The oaken fixed groaned in protest, though barely heard over the ensuing echo. Palin, ignoring Tanis though he was, was startled into a glance at the elder mage.

Tanis Half-Elven met his gaze and held it. "Perhaps we should summon some allies," he suggested icily as if he expected the other mage to disagree just to make a point of it.

((OOC: I dunno if you guys just wanted to pop up in the middle of the story or not, but it would seem logical for them to send word to the old allies like Glimmer or J'mes (provided he's on the planet :P).

So: good, bad? Have I still got it? :D))Computer games don't affect kids…if Pacman had affected us as kids, we’d all be running around in darkened rooms munching on magic pills and listening to repetitive electronic music.

Solamnia....the plains just outside....The Crystal Spire shot up to the Azure sky. at the top of the spire, was an Arch...made of entwining black and clear crystal, the facets of both glinting brightly.

Curled beneath that arch was the Crystal Dragon Crystalamira...known to humans as Glimmer. Her white feathered wings where folded gracefully on her back, as her scales shimmered brightly in the sun. Her golden eyes where closed in self-induced slumber. Caramon and Kitiara gave their lives on this very spot that the spire rested....the Dark God Raistlin breathed his last here as well...

thus the significance of the crystal spire...The representation of the Cleric Kitiara...sacrificing herself...to lift her Half-Brother Caramon to the place that he needed to destroy his twin...the entwining crystal arch symolized the twins themselves. Glimmer slept beneath it...the symbol of Paladine shone brightly on her breast.

So she thought she would sleep forever...Darkness flashed once again...

Golden eyes opened slowly...the crystal around her shimmered in the bright sun...Darkness again sparked in her mind...She shuddered...and blinked...Her head rises slowly...as if weakened...unable to move easily. She looked around...tears in her eyes as they rested on the intwined arch....

Darkness once more wakes...Awaken Savior of Light...

White wings stretch slowly, achingly slow from years of sleep. "darkness awakens once more..." She said slowly, raising her head to stare down at the city below...a deep aching pain stirrs within....a soft sob can be heard as the Great Crystal Dragon launched herself into the air, great white wings slicing the air currents easily

all within Solamnia gazed up in awe as Glimmer flew as high as she could...a Glittering Diamond on the Azure background...All could Hear the Anguish in the Roar that followed. And All knew that something was amiss...Glimmer Had Awakened......You can steel the band from the Cooper hands

OOC: Darkmaster....... fisty is mine....you dont know what plans i have for him lol....he is basically the centerpiece of the thread. Palin is yours to control..i took the liberty of starting things off with him but...he is yours now ;)



BIC:The gods convened as all had felt the disturbance. Though great a mage fistindantilous was, he should not have been able to reconstitute himself. Sargonnas stood, voice booming in outrage he shouted "Who has done this? Who has aided this fool back into being? I have gotten word of his plans from afar, do you all not know the danger this poses?"

Silence insued as none would answer.....and ten Nuitari stepped forward. "I have aided him back, and I have good reason to do so" Lunitari and solinari stood next to him as he spoke. Though not always in agreement, they always thought of one acord. Lunitari spoke on his behalf "He has done so because of the wrong that was done his mother. Fistindantilous is the bane of raistlin, what better revenge could he have?"

A Soft whispery voice rattled throughout the netherworld in which the gods convined. "Fools you have brought great peril to us all. Do you think I fear a puny mage? He is mortal still......and death will take him no matter how many centuries it takes." Nuitari responded with a snicker "And thus my mother spoke of such a puny mortal mage in days gone past. That puny mortal mage usurped her and became a god thugh not deservingly so. So I spite you O master of te past, present and future, for I have brought the bane of your existance back to plauge an mock you."

Before them appeared the god raistlin, shimmering black and gold. He sat at the side of Paladine, the seat of gilean lay empty. His face bore neither a look of worry or of any emotion at all. "Yes....your mother was foolish to underestimate me. I however will NOT do the same. Its is YOU who underestimate him. Fistindantilous no longer wants to become a god.....he wants revenge. Listen to Sargonas closely, he has heard word of his intent, and i assure you, you will regret letting him back upon krynn"

Sargonas arose to speak again as everyone paid keen attention "He plans to....................

Tanis Half-Elven met his gaze and held it. "Perhaps we should summon some allies," he suggested icily as if he expected the other mage to disagree just to make a point of it.

Palin barley acknowldged tanis as he turned to face him. "Yes, for once i agree. The fate of the three orders hangs in the balance. We must have a meeting of the conclave. How he has returned is still yet unknown. how we are to deal with him..........that is what must be discussed."

Though outwardly cool palin was not too happy with the return of fisty. He had worked hard to become head of the black robes, he could care less about the fate of the world so long as he had the magic. But he was no fool, he knew well what things fisty could do and though he didnt care about anyone else.......he cared about himself. The favor of his uncle whom had become a god gave him some amount of confidence, it wold take a lot to thwart him AND a god, still he would take no chances, the balance and possibly life itself hung in limbo with fistidantlious return.

"First.......we must find knowledge on what things we will need to defeat him. Some god is also aiding him, and though we each serve a god as well......they cannot directly interfere........the balance must be maintained."

Palin looked around in a semicircle and the cavernous library and frowned "We might as well start right now.......send word that we must hold coucil on this matter........and soon.""So what is it?

(OOC: J'mes is actually doing excatly what he'd be doing in the normal timeline - living near Palanthas and continuing to learn as much as he can about krynn. He is often visiting the library of Palanthas, although he has only seen Astinus once or twice. You can find him there, especially if you are at Gilean's place, which I view as a godly mirror of the library of Palanthas.)The sword, it thirsts to drink of man.

Glimmer scanned the land below her...She knew that the Evil One had awakened...and she also knew that she had to find the leaders of Light and balance on Krynn...She flew quickly...heading for Palanthas.

She hovered high over the city, clouds obcuring her presence...and she murmered something softly....in a shimmering ray of light, Glimmer dissapeared, as the ray of light struck the temple of Paladine...

The ray of light struck the figure of the Platinum dragon that was just behind the altar. A figure dressed in shimmering crystal armor stepped from the light to stand on the altar. Her long silver hair fell past her waist, and her bright golden eyes swept the empty temple...empty save one.

The little girl had cried out and backed away in fear. Glimmer's eyes rested on the child and smiled gently. "Do not fear child...Paladine is still with us...His light will never leave our hearts." She said as she stepped down from the altar, and rested her hand gently on her head.

The moment Glimmer stepped down from the altar her armor changed, to a long flowing gown of white. her hair was bound up with crystal clips, and around her neck hung on a platinum chain was the medallion of Paladine, made out of shimmering crystal. she stepped outside, and looked up, her gold eyes wide with a sudden fear...and she made her way quickly for the great Library...her magics working as she walked...her next step was taken within the library...out of a silver mist...

She looked up to see the three that she sought...Astinius, the incarnation of Gilean...Palin majere...the Leader of the Black robes....and Tanis half-elven...the Leader of the white. "Greetings...Council of Light, Balance, and Darkness....I too have heard the call of Darkness...it penetrated my slumber...I had wakened when i thought I would sleep forever..."

She nodded with respect to each of the three and waited for their responses.You can steel the band from the Cooper hands

"Yes...Darkness....one the likes of which has not been seen since he was last defeated.....plus....we have the added concern and worry of yet another dark soul......", his eyes were heavy with a mixture of fear and annoyance. The return of Fistandantanilus was a blow he did not wish....but what blow is ever warrented.

Tanis Half-Elven stood stiffly, eyeing Glimmer. He took her greeting in stride, nodding curtly. He didn't respond though...couldn't respond. Old feelings die hard and he would not soon forget that she had once been the right-hand of Caramon...his second lady-love after Tika. Her time as his enemy outweighed her time as his ally by quite a bit.

But politness was demanded. After all, Melethka had...

Tanis supressed a growl and turned away. He was tired, so damn tired!

"I'm going to go find J'mes," he muttered, pushing past the dragonlady without meeting her gaze.Computer games don't affect kids…if Pacman had affected us as kids, we’d all be running around in darkened rooms munching on magic pills and listening to repetitive electronic music.

((OOC: ok guys, if you don't mind I would to join in here. Be kind for I am very new to form rpging!*smiles* Ontarys I will being Playing one of your chara Odillia-Cleric of Raistlin. Let me know if I need to do anything special with her, k? I'm going to start her off in the middle of a dream and go from there. Wish me luck cause here I go!))

IC: Odillia heard her name being whispered has she felt the warm embrace of black velvet surround her but something was wrong. She tried to turn and face her Dark Master but with every turn she could see nothing but the folds of his black robes.
"Why won't you let me see you",she asks as she struggled to escape his hold. He would not answer her. The more she struggled the more his embrace became smothering. He was starting to hurt her.
"Please my Master, let me go!", she pleaded with him only to hear his mocking laughter ringing in her ears. He threw her to the ground and she finally was able to turn to face him. To her surprise it was not her Dark Master but another man. She couldn't make out his face but she knew it was not Raistlin.
Words of magic flowed from his mouth and she could not move. Helplessly she watched as he destroy the temple around her. She tried to cry out but no sound came from her lips. After he was finished her turn to her.
"Now my pretty one I will take care of you!", Pulling out a dagger from his robe his took a few steps towards her...

Odillia screamed as she sat up in her bed. She realized it was just a bad dream, but then she heard the mocking laughter. Confused and dazed she got up and hurried herself to the main room of the temple. She grabbed hold of her Hourglass Medallion and began to pray to her God.

((OOC: I hope I didn't mess her up..let me know what you all think!))

Odillia screamed as she sat up in her bed. She realized it was just a bad dream, but then she heard the mocking laughter. Confused and dazed she got up and hurried herself to the main room of the temple. She grabbed hold of her Hourglass Medallion and began to pray to her God.


Odillia prayed silently and in earnest, feeling the presence of her god come near her. Your fears are warranted. For a great evil has once again come upon krynn to oppose me. Have strength, I will crush all that defy me, though there are many perils that you will endure in the future. Within the temple I have placed an item, when the sand runs out the fate of kryn will be revealed.

And just as swiftly his presence was gone, she felt alone and bare. But she had been given insight. Making a small trip to thetemple she gasped in awe, as before on an altar a golden hourglass half the size of the large temple. Black sand flowed slowly through it with a strange pulsating luminence. The strange erie laughter returned as she stood in the temple, and then all was silent."So what is it? Do you just flip a coin in the morning to decide what you will be for the day?

Before them appeared the god raistlin, shimmering black and gold. He sat at the side of Paladine, the seat of gilean lay empty. His face bore neither a look of worry or of any emotion at all. "Yes....your mother was foolish to underestimate me. I however will NOT do the same. Its is YOU who underestimate him. Fistindantilous no longer wants to become a god.....he wants revenge. Listen to Sargonas closely, he has heard word of his intent, and i assure you, you will regret letting him back upon krynn"

Sargonas arose to speak again as everyone paid keen attention "He plans to....................

Raistlin stood motonless, annoyed "Silence! I will deal with the fistindantilous in time. The balance is in danger, and though we all know how little I care for the balance......What is a world with no servants going to benefit me?"

Sargonnas, undaunted retorted "You well know that the world is also not what he is after.....He will try to destroy YOU......and then the rest of us for not aiding him in your battle. The balance is not what is threatend.......A mere mortal dares once again to challenge the gods......and I for one and getting tired of it."

The three siblings watched with interest as the banter went back and forth. Finally Nuitari had had enough. "I have things to attend to, I will let them whine and grovel over a mortal."

Lunitari and solinari both nodded, "A warning Nuitari.........this game you play is danger and neither of us will consent to what this mage has planned. We have stood together on many things.........let not this tear us apart. IF fistindantilous begins to turn our mages..........we will not be as one."

With a curt nod of acknowledgement he turned and left the meeting of the gods.........."The death of my mother shall be avenged.""So what is it? Do you just flip a coin in the morning to decide what you will be for the day? Heads Knight of Neraka Tails Solamnic Knight :D"

A chilled went down Odillia's spine as the erie laughter ended. She looked around the room to see if anyone was there but she was alone. With a sigh, she returns her focus to the Golden Hourglass and her God's words.

"A great Evil has returned to Krynn, hmmm I wonder who this great evil is?" speaking softly to herself then strugging her shoulders, "I guess I should not concern myself with this evil for the time being."

She took a step closer towards the Golden Hourglass and without thinking she starts to reach out to touch it. Her hand starts to tremble has she get closer making her pull back from it. She could feel the power of her God and once more his words fill her mind. " When the sands runs out the fate of Krynn will be revealed", she spoke outloud as if trying to make sense of it. Eventhough communing with her God left her intrigued, the dark vision of this evil left her weary and in need of rest.

Taking a few steps back Odillia kneels before the Golden Hourglass, "I will be strong, Great One. My sword, magic and devotion are at your service. Ask anything of me and it shall be done. I am yours to command for all time." With that she rasies slowly and turns to leave the temple. Although he does not answer she knows he has heard her .

Glimmer frowned as Tanis brushed past her calously. his refusal to meet her eyes pained her and she flinched. She sighed as Palin met her eyes her heart crying out as she thought to herself...would she always be treated as thus...still welcomed by the darkness, and shunned by the light?

She met Palins eyes and nodded respectively. "Yes..." she said, and turned in a swirl of white, her silver hair flowing loosely around her shoulders, the crystal pendant that hung around her neck flashed brightly as it caught the candle light.You can steel the band from the Cooper hands

Palin followed slightly behind. He gave her breadth. Her mood turned sour after Tanis departed, Hmm....i wonder....her service to the dark is over...apparently....but i suppose those were darker times.....such a heaviness is not easily lifted....even off my shoulders...

By the way, italics are made like and . ))

Tanis Half-Elven strolled casually down the open streets of Palanthas. He ignored the looks thrown his way--the glares from those who hate magic, the reverence from white robes; the respect from red...looks of loathing from full elves and humans alike...though he did stop to be amused by the irony of them finally agreeing on something...

The reason for his leisure was simple. This was simples...and seeing J'mes again would have been agreeable on a normal day. Today it was perfect, exspecially after meeting with Glimmer. Here was an ally he knew he had...

He arrived at the library without even really realizing he had crossed the city. He glanced back down the road. He had no idea where the dragonlady and her dark shadow were...perhaps they were already with J'mes. He didn't really care. He had decided the dragonrider's reception of him would be the same no matter when he arrived and with whatever news. The half-elf needed a warm reaction.

"You don't want to go in there."

Tanis paused on the library steps and glanced down. A woman stood there, looking frail and distraught within a tattered shroud. Her eyes shone with unshed tears.

The mage shuddered. Her voice...it made him want to flee far and fast...or to claw at his burning almond eyes...

"Astinus isn't here anymore," she added in a whisper. "He can't stop it...none of Them can..."

Thoroughly chilled now, Tanis pushed past her in a stumble and entered the library. He stopped just as the door shut, slowly realizing that his hands were shaking. He lit for the next room, hoping to find J'mes as soon as possible...

Inside, Tanis looked into the rooms, but did not see J'mes in any of them. Finally, he came across the door to Astinus's study, slightly ajar. Pushing it in, he stepped inside.

"T-Tanis!" J'mes said surprised. "Sarumth said he saw a white robed mage entering, but I had no idea it was you. How are you doing? What brings you to Palanthas? And today of all days?" Seing the look on Tanis's face, J'mes calmed down. "You're probably wondering why I'm in his study. And your face tells me this is not just a social visit.

Glimmer slipped in past Palin, suppressing an odd feeling of being in two places at once, and nodded to him. The feeling passed, but as it did, she felt an odd kinship with him...yes, he was Caramon's son, but there was something else there...

She shook her head sharply to clear it, and continued on her way. For the last ten years, in her slumber dreams of the true timeline plauged her...making her long for the way things should be....She sighed and pushed open a door, to find J'mes and Tanis there.

Tanis smiled at J'mes--a bit sadly but it was a smile all the same. He opened his mouth to greet his friend and was interrupted by the opening of the study door.

Great timing, Tanis thought sourly, waiting for the greetings to pass. He glanced at both Glimmer and Palin and then dismissed them. "Greetings, my friend...it is good to see you again. You're right, this isn't a social visit, a fact that I much regret..."

Why are you being so formal, half-elf? a voice in the back of his head asked. Just because the last time he had seen J'mes was the last time he had seen Melethka...and he hadn't seen him since...and then there was Palin, staring...and the dragonlady...

Tanis sighed and looked at J'mes for really the first time. "I...the world needs your help again, old friend. It needs all and any help, I'm afraid.

Her hands clenched involinarily as her mind continued to reel...she didn't understand why Tanis was so cold...He was warmer towards her when Caramon had summoned the heads of the orders, so that they could plan to destroy Raistlin...He trusted her more than Caramon...She blinked and shookd her head slightly...Yes...Ten years ago...He was more kindly.You can steel the band from the Cooper hands

Nuitari appeared in the midst of an old laboratory filled with ages old dust and spell books. A shadowy figure sat motionless in one of the cracked seats that lined the large moldy table. A strange light illuminated the room even though there were no torches or candles present. Calmly eyeing the shadowy figure Nuitari motioned to it.

"The gods are in an uproar over what to do with you. And i see know the folly of aiding you in your return to Krynn. I also see the great benefit that can be had from it as well. I know full well what you intend to do. Seduce the mages into turning against the Gods will?" A thin smirk was all that belied Nuitaris thoughts......."It is that.....that the gods worry and fret over, the balance will truly be threatend if that were to come to pass. However..........zivilyn has forseen that this will affect many worlds.......and THAT is where we shall spark our agreement."

Fistindantilous had listened with interest.......he loved that the gods worried of his presence. He responded with a voice still weak from his arrival upon the material world......"Yesss I too have forseen what may happen, in due time. Promise me Krynn and free reign over the inhabitants to 'study' and I will do what you command........as long as raistlin is done away with and i am avenged, as you well also want the death of takhisis avenged."

Nuitari nodded in acquisense(sp)....

Tanis Half-Elven actually smiled at the idea of Astinus going to the bathroom, but it was a cold humor in his almond eyes. He took the book, glanced at it and sighed.

"First...is there anyone else we should contact? Any other potential allies?" He looked from one to the other, noting their expressions. Palin looked...outraged, he decided with amusement. Perhaps if he had been any other man, Tanis would be dead right now, if only from the glare the dark mage was giving him. Glimmer managed to look...confused, hurt, strong, and definant all at the same time. Tanis blinked. He knew he would probably have a confrontation with the dragonlady and hoped it would be later rather then sooner.

He suddenly wanted to be alone. Handing the book back to J'mes, he waited for any input from any of them, his eyes pleading for release, perchance time to study...alone.

"I assume all of you have had the dream? Or has he not gotten to you yet? Many mages have spoken of a dark vision in there dreams promising them great power if they were to join the cause. Some have even been turned to this cause........There was a time when the mages came together for a common good. To help rid the world of dragons (for a time) in creating the dragon orbs. Their power was great, and it helped in defeating takhisis and the evil dragons. I fear.......if the three ordes were to join this cause....."

Astinious paused for a breaf second, emotion rarely showed in is old yet strikingly agless face, and it did not show now when he began again...."I fear MORE than just the balance will be threatend. But worlds beyond even krynn. I will say this............and I will say no more.......the mages joined for a good cause in the past..........it is likely they will join for evil in the future and thus the balance is preserved, yet through this it is threatend.

I can't remember...is Tanis the Head of the Conclave? I thought he was...but it said in the begining, he was just head of the white robes. Hm. I'm going to assume I remember right and change it later. :P))

Tanis nodded absently at J'mes, his mind working on something. He no longer wanted to leave...something about what Astinus had said--and what Palin just did--struck him as odd and, to be honest, confused the hell out of the half-elf.

"Please, J'mes, contact anyone you can think of...whether they are likely to respond or not. I feel we are going to need all the allies we can get...one way or another." J'mes gave him a questioning look and, for a moment, the mage felt like he was drowning. "I'm...I'm going to get in contact with every mage I can think of. I'm still Head of the Conclave, damn it, and I need to know who is 'defecting' and...and..." his shoulders sagged in defeat. "And if anyone has any bright ideas."

After Odillia finished her chants and praises to her Dark Master she watches as other leave the temple quickly and quitely. She slowly puts out the candles and turn to leave the Alter when she gets very dizzy and falls to the floor. A vison fills her mind.

The stormy sky above her is rumblering with the anger of the Gods. Odillia look all around her as she see many forms in Black Robes gathering about her. Dazed and confused she tries to find a way to run but they close the the circle. Becoming defiant, she stands her ground. The spidery words of magic start to encircle her has she reaches for her Medallion only to find it gone.

She hears a familar voice ringing in her head Lose your God my pretty one? Has he left you to your fate? mocking laughter fills her head has she puts her hands to her ears. The voice speaks again I have destored him and all his followers..save one, that is. With that a figure appears in front of her but unlike the last time she can see his face. She stumbles backwards with a gasp. He smiles at her. Yes it is I Fistindantilous! I have return to rule this world and destory that pityful God you had worship! It was almost too easy to destory him. I was expexting more of a fight, such the pity!

Odillia was angry and that she could handle but unexpectly her eyes were swelling with tears. Was she crying for herself or for her God? She did not know the answer. Her cheeks flushed with embarrassment over her show of weakness.

Fintindantilous did not seem to notice or care he just keeps talking Now this world will be mine! His angry voice echos in the sky as lightning crackes through the clouds.

Then another figure appears at his side and she see it is Palin! Palin looks down at her with pity in his eyes then turns to Fistindantilous Why don't you just kill her and get on with it?

Odillia's mouth hang open in shock. She felt pain in her heart locked up from soo long ago. Palin helped this man! No this can not be! How could he? Why did he do it? Her head spinning she heard Palin speak once more.

To think I once had feelings for you a very long time ago..now look at you Odillia..weak and pathetic without your God! Worhtless creature!

His words hit her like a shower of daggers. She fell to her knees and put her head in her hands to weep. Then she felt a hand touch her head as it strokes her hair. She looks up to see yet another Black Robes figure but this time the face was kind of blurry through her tears. Then she slowly she starts to realized this person was no longer part of the vision but he was there with her. Blinking her eyes to clear her vision she sat up slowly to stunned to speak.

"That must have been a vision that troubles you deeply, Odillia." he said to her in a calming voice touching her face with his slender fingers, "Tell me, my dear what you saw, I am most interested."

Pulling away, Odillia looks at him with confusion in her eyes, "Master Dalamar, why in the name of darkness are you here?"

Dalamar speaks with sound of irritation in his voice, "why in the Name of Darkness indeed!"

(OOC: I never know what I am going to write til I'm finished..just thought Dalamar would be fun to throw in here..but he dosen't have to stay..or I could play him..doesn't matter to me ..just hope you didn't mind!))"This 'evil man' as you call him, Revered Daughter, serves a goddess as powerful as Paladine-Takhisis, Queen of Darkness!

Anyone ever wondered how the original OOC: eswiftfire thread was ever started? It's all because of this thread, baby, when all I wanted to do was point out that people's heads were exploding."

Suddenly, two headless ghosts, one of an old man, the other of a white-robed figure, materialized beside Eliar.

"See? Those who died weren't random people, they were living legends." Eliar pointed. "Of course, if I was given the opportunity to elaborate on them, this thread would never have fallen into the clutches of Thread Enders Inc."

"Hey, perhaps I was a bit rash. maybe you should be the one to end this. Youth before wisdom, you know?"

"Why aren't you the one doing it, man? This thread's supposedly about you! After all, it's supposedly all serious and shit, making it seem as if you coming back is a big deal." Eliar replied. "All I wanted to do is prove a point that this thread would've been gone far if I was allowed to work more of my magic onto it."

"uhm..." Raistlin said, pondering his dilemma. He wondered if listening to Yanni would make his head explode too.

Then he remembered that he was supposed to be a god here.

"Oh yeah, I could just smite them!" He snaps his fingers.

Miniature lightning clouds appear over every single living creature on Krynn, bombarding them with lightning bolts till they're dark and crispy.

"Hah!" Raistlin clapped his hands together. "Now that they know my true power, they shall all bow before me!"

Eliar looked underwhelmed.

"Man, we've waited for almost three years to hijack this thread, and all you could do was zap every single person here with lightning? Can't you be a wee bit more original? Damn, maybe this is one of the limitations of being a creation of Weis and Hickman."

"Totally," croaked a crispy critter in the room.

A dark and crispy rat ran out from a hole and bit Raistlin. The rat then stood up on its hind legs and looked up at him. "Oh so you like picking on rats ey? I'll show you what happens when someone makes a rat crispy." The rat turned around and squeezed with all his might. Suddenly fire exploded from his crispy ass, setting Raistlin a flame. "How you like me now!?"

"How you like me now!?"



"Aaaaahhhh," Raistlin said, screaming, as the flames consumed him totally, until all that is left in the room is a pillar of flame.




Then the screams turn to manic laughter.



"Haaaaahahahahahahhahaahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaa!" A burning but still recognisable hand reaches out from the flames, calling forth a gust of wind that picks up the roasted rodent and pins it against a nearby wall.

"Foolish mortal." Raistlin said from within the flames. using the EVil FX spell to boost his voice to a sinsiter rumbling bass. "I am a GOD!!!!! Nothing can challenge me."

Over in the corner, Astinus who had been revivified by the numerous electric jolts rather than toasted (he is an avatar of Gilean after all), reached for a apck of painkillers and a pen.

While Raistlin rips off Il Palazzo from the second last episode of the anime Excel Saga, over in a corner, Astinus, who had been revivified by lightning, reaches for painkillers and a pen to write this down.

"Leave the rat alone, Raistlin!" Tanis yelled, waving his sword and charging towards his former companion. "Your fight is with me!"

"Leave the rat alone, Raistlin!" Tanis yelled as he waved his sword and charged towards his former companion. "Your fight is with me!" He declared.

"Mwahahahahahahahhahaa! What, are you going to cut me up with that deadly baguette?" Raistlin laughed mockingly.

Astinus sighed in frustration, then made the appropriate correction to the last entry, neatly corssing out the offending word.

"Leave the rat alone, Raistlin!" Tanis yelled as he waved his baguette (which is a longish type of bread, and which in this particular instance also happens to have once been a sword, and would provide me with the opportunity to make a pun here in what is presumably the last book I will ever write before Raistlin kills us all in a fit of megalomaniacal rage about iron-enriched foods, only such unprofessional frippery is beneath me) and charged towards his former companion. "Your fight is with me!" He declared.

"NOOOOOOO!" Tanis stared in horror at the baguette that was once his sword. "How could this happen?"

Flinging the baguette aside, the half-elf stared down heroically at the evil mage. A look of sorrow and determination, a look of a person who knew deep down what his fate and destiny will be like, a look of a person who was going to do something no normal men had ever done, a look of a person who knew that he hasn't have long to live...

Then, turning to his right, he started running towards... the boombox Aeramae left conveniently beside Astinus' table, and jumped slow-mo.

He stayed in the mid-air, the camera whirled and whirled and whirled around him for a few moments. As he fell, he reached out his finger and pressed the 'PLAY' button.

"If I have to go down, I will take you down with me." Tanis gasped.

The calm soothing sounds of Yanni's wondrous works started blaring from the speakers.

"Yes..." Tanis grunted in satisfaction, before his head exploded.

The rest of the page is smeared by blood and brain matter.

Meanwhile, in the center of the room, the headless corpse of Raistlin Majere sizzles merrily in its funeral pyre. Not even the master of the Past and Present could withstand the awesome timeless crappiness of Yanni's music.
