Subject: Wow


It sure is great of you to offer up your talents yo us like that. I know I certainly appreciate it, considering I'm beans at drawing.

I've got only one order for yah, and it'll probabaly be the only order I ever give you. Only issue, it'll probabaly be a pretty big one; so I wouldn't mind you turning it down. Shoot me a PM if you're up to it and I'll privately mail you the description if thats okay. It'll be a huge battle scene. As for time constraints, there are none. You'rre free to take as long as you please if you'll take up my order.

Subject: Thank you


I really appreciate the fact that you took the time to read this, and I do understand what you mean about daunting mass text boxes.

But I very much appreciate your intruige to my personal writing style, although I frankly think I'm not any good. Of course that may just be me being modest, but it's a sin (in my book) to say you're good at something just because you love it. It's just a little biased...if that makes any sense.

It's great to see that our community has expanded enough to get something as cool as this. I'll definatley be looking forward to every Monday and Thursday. Juts one more reason to join up and stick around I suppose.

As for the the strip, I like it. Like you said, a bit heavy on the narration, but what else can you do to properly introduce characters?

Great stuff.

...They say its a horrible thing.

Still, I've got to agree with YeOlde. Michael was dead twenty years ago. After Thriller, he became something that he wasn't meant to be. Still, like YeOlde, I'm not quite sure what that something was.

As for Farrah, she went through a lot more than Michael did. I'll admit, I still have the old Farrah poster my dad had when he was growing up. I put it on my wall when she passed away. She was just as influential as Michael Jackson ever was.

Topic: Faulty Xbox (again)
Subject: Well


I wasn't aware I was doing anything more than stating an opinion. I very much enjoy my PS3, which works fine now that its been repaired, and I also enjoy my 360. This was not a matter of preference as opposed to a matter of reliable information.

It is a simply the manner at which you got across your information. I respect your apology, but it's going to do no one any good to argue about this.



As for the more on the actual subject, the only issue I've ever had with my 360 is one I've also had with the PS3. My disc drive tends to stick. This requires either a little patience or the removal of the consoles faceplate and some tweaking with the drive.

Topic: Faulty Xbox (again)
Subject: Ah


In order to address, with absolutely NO hostility, several of your topics, allow me to have a word.

One: You cannot simply rely on everything you see on the internet. There are a lot of odd misguided and incorrect people out there.

Two: You've had you're PS3 for one year, therefore you obviously haven't had it as long as the 360 owners have. That means it's still got time to break down.

Three: I own both a PS3 and a 360, and my PS3 crapped out before my 360 ever did. I've had my 360 since the launch date and it's been running pretty ever since. I botuh the PS3 and less than a month later the disc drive wouldn't open and I kept getting error messages.

Subject: Acting as NPC's


***

The dock attendant wandered out onto the dock and lit his pipe. No ships were due to arrive soon anyway. Last ship they got a day ago was still docked in the harbor. His guess was it was some official representative from another country, probabaly trying to coax the headmaster at the academy into letting some more foreign students train there. Captain of the ship hand't even come out to register. The deck hand he'd sent out had told the Dock Master that the Captain was much to important to be spoken of in public.

Through the white smoke of his pipe, the dock attendant could make out the outline of a galleon bobbing offshore, heading right toward the harbor. He cursed to himself.

"Lenny! Look like we got another unsheculed arrival!"

"Blimey!" Lenny shouted back, "you s'ppose its got anythin' to do wit that ship thats moored in dock seven?"

As the ship drew nearer, the dock attendant could make out a black flag flying high above. Upon the flag was a lone golden eagle holding a single sword in its talons.

"Oi! Lenny! Looks like that boats Schlectan! They aint got no buisiness here!"

The dock master shuffled out of his cabin, "What are you two blighters yellin 'bout this ti-" He saw the ship and howled a curse word at the top of his lungs.

Both Lenny and the other dock attendant frowned.

"Bloody Schlectans better not be 'ere to cause no trouble!" the dock master shouted, "I'll be 'avin a word with there captain!"

Finally the ship was docked, but no one emerged from it. The dock master at last approached the craft in anger, and at that a lone man stepped off the gangway onto the dock, looking around haughtily.

"Might I ask what yer doin' on my docks, sir!" The dock master approached the man.

"I'm quite sorry," the other man said with a slight bite in his accent, "we were part of a merchant convoy heading down to Emeras Citello to transfer a shipment of goods and we got a bit ahead of the rest of our group in a storm. Unfortunatley, the Grand Marshall of our little fleed was aboard out ship, so they can't pass our ship up. I suppose their about a day behind us now."

"What are yah saying?" the dock master asked.

"Well, good sir," the man said, throwing a friendly arm around the dock master, "I'm afraid you'll have to play host to about six or seven more ships about this size by tommorow, at least until we're all regrouped."

The dock master scowled, until the man prduced a large bag of gold.

"This should suffice as docking payment for our craft, and then some."

Taking it greedily, the dockmaster gave a wide smile and let the man return to his ship, no questions asked.

Subject: Note: We're IN Drlva. Lol


Calvin was about to speak up when the burly old Dwarf husked out the door. He frowned, but to himself.

"The Dwarf doesn't know what he's doing..." The elf said, taking a catious glance toward the door as it slammed shut.

"That may be ture, but he's doing what he thinks is best. Way I see it, the best way we can tell the citizens is by rumor. More people show concern over rumors in this city than they do over facts." Calvin whirrled around from the window and sat down thoughtfully on his bedside chair.

"Did the man sat he was going to have help?"

Calvin scratched his chin, "No...but I cant imagine one man could burn an entire city."

"Could we," the Elf began. Clavin knew what he was thinking.

"It'd take too long. That man said he'd burn the city within the week. If we tried to send a message to the mainland it'd take at least four days. From there it's another six days ride in to Rhoste Citello. Thats not even considering all the screening that kind of message would take. Then we'd have to wait about a month for the proper garrison of troops to be sent."

Calvins eyes shot open. He suddenly realized that islands own Garrison wasn't even present. "The Drlva detacthment of the Tlyvarian Defense Group took leave last week to make it to Rhoste Citello for the annual Military Training Run. Their not here...all we've got is the small guard contingent posted at the school..."

Calvin realized at that moment there was no way they were saving the city. It was only a matter of getting out alive.

Sincerest apoligies for not having been on for...well I think around five weeks, although I've lost track of time.

I was on vacation for a while until my aunt passed away. I know such things are usually sad, and it was, but unfortunately I was not close close to my aunt, in fact I don't reall remember her at all. My father however is rather heartbroken. He's having some trouble dealing with his sisters pre-mature passing, so I spent the week making sure he was okay.

However, I'm back now.

"Far as I can tell, we need to keep all of this under wraps. Only person I know enough to trust such secrets with is you," gestured toward Kannizan, at which point the elf shot him an annoyed glance.

"You," he turned around toward the elf, "are still a complete mystery to me. I have no diea what you do here, what your name is, and what your motivations are. But...you can obviously handle yourself, and at least have more wits than a normal Elf, no offense met."

He knew the elves were usually a very talkative society, but this one had remianed rather silent.

"The best WE can do is find people we trust. People capable of helping us when the time comes. As horrible as it may sound, the conviction in that mans voice assured me that we alone won't be able to stop him from doing what he wants to Drlva. If he doesn't get what he wants, we have to be ready for anything. We need a plan, and trustworthy people we can confide in."

"Kannizan! No! Think about this. The Headmaster has a clean record. And he's got the authority to make sure you never have a future anywhere else. If you break down his door and start drilling him with questions, he can just as quickly fire you and expel me as you did walk in. I know theres something fishy about all of this."

Calvin turned toward the Elf, who seemed very convinced what he was saying had some logic behind it, "But the best thing we can do now is take some time and get together anyone we'll need...should what I heard be true. We're going to get no where if we go your route...no offense." He aptted Kannizan on the shoulder.

Calvin was beginning to find their arguing and threats childish, which was humerous considering his age in comparison to them.

"Stop bickering. Kannizan, I need you to listen to me."

Kannizan turned his head with honest curiosity in his eyes.

"On my way back from my house, I stopped by the library. I looked up whatever information I could on this sword, but found nothing. But what really bothers me is what happened after that."

Calvin took a deep breath and went on, "As I was passing through the central strucutre, I lost my way and ended up in the adminnistration building. I happened past the Headmaster office and heard a conversation going on inside. Now normally, I wouldn't eavesdrop, but the...topic...of their discussion was rather startaling."

Both Kannizan and the Elf leaned in closer.

"There was man, whose voice i've not heard before. He can't be native. He was demanding the Headmaster for some...information. He never said more than that. The Headmaster said the person who knew this 'information' would not disclose it."

Kannizan nodded and the Elf shifted nervously.

"What scared me the most though...I think the other man knew I was out there."

"Did he attack you?" the Elf asked.

"No..." Calvin sook his head, "but...as if he knew I were there, he asked the Headmaster the name of the person who had what he wanted. I found it odd, considering he should already know...right?"

Kannizan nodded, his eyes focuses on Calvin.

"The Headmaster took a few moments....and then said my fathers name. My father knows something that this man wants...and he's missing...but there is no sign of him on the island at all."

Both the Elf and Kannizan looked shocked.

"Worse off, the man said he was prepared the burn the city by tommorrow at sundown should he not recieve what he was after."

"Did you go in lad?" Kannizan demanded.

"No, all I heard was this loud hissing noise, as if a sword just from the forge had been plunged in ice water. Then there was a flash...and the voice was gone..."

"What did you do?" The Elf grabbed Calvins collar.

"I ran back here, looking for one of you."

Topic: Great War Q&A
Subject: From the Journal of Lord Vermire c. 0987bm


The following is an entry from what is believed to be the original war diary of the Alerian King, Lord Vermire. Vermire came into power during the height of the Rynnlan Fracture, a massive seventy year civil war in which the once proud Pan-Continental Empire of Rynnla split into three warring factions. Vermire was the king of Alere, the Western State.

At this point in the conflict, the Rynnlan army has pulled it's forces back within it's boarders to regroup and prepare for the next offensive. Taking advantage of the lack of Rynnlan presence, Vermire launches "Operation Rapier" and pushes into the Kal' Alneor Mountains (modern Brigor mountains). Vermire intends to retake the Nerembu Pass (now Ruanor Pass) from the Canthosian occupation. Using a cunning decoy force, Vermire leads his army into the pass, where the recovered portion of his journal details.




"14'TH day of the month of E're,

OUR Canthosian enemies flee in terror at the sight of my army. Alere is close to victory over Canthos. We passed into the Nerembu Pass only three days ago from the Kilikhal Peaks. In our wake, we have burned the captured Rynnlan stronghold of Toerek. The Canthosian forces have left the valley. We have made camp for the night around a great ruin, most likley Rynnlan of construction. On our way through a nearbye village, we were informed that a mystical wealth inhabits these ruins. I was skeptical, but the strong Canthosian presence at the site assuaged any feelings of doubt I harbored.

It is being seen to that the site recieve a throrough investigation by my best scholars. I am in fact due to visit the site at dawn to inspect any findings we may come across.



15'TH day of the month of E're,

AFTER much excavation, my teams have uncovered a chamber of mythic proportions far underneath the facade of the structure. It is a rotund room, and it's walls are decorated in the most splendid of murals. In its center stands an altar upon which six gems have been placed. These gems among the most impressive I have ever laid eyes on. However, it is not their size nor weight in gold that attracts me. Instead, the glorious murals adorning the walls of this chamber tell a sotry through their depictions.

Although it is not entirely clear, I suspect, from the illustrations upon the walls, that these gems, if united at a single location, will grant the user some sort of immense power. Judging from the detailed artwork, I have concluded that this location is that of Bretti Island. The allure of such a prize is well worth a trip into Rynnlan boarders. Even then, we shall not be venturing too far into the enemies terriory. I have given the Captains the order to turn the army south. We will be heading through the Nerembu Pass and into the Bretti Plain. There, we will find the island, and hopefully, some sort of temple.


28'TH day of the month of E're,

We have reached Bretti Island with no incidence. The gems have been glowing since we arrived. I have ordered my men to begin excavating at the apex of the islands hill. Here I will hopefully locate the altar.


1'ST day of th month of Alnean,

We have done it! I go now to place the gems into the altar and claim my prize. When next I write within these pages, I shall be as a god."







Lord Vermire never unified the gems at the altar. A Canthosian spy had reported his location to Rynnlan forces in the area. The Rynnlan's, obviously knowing about the gems, sent every availible force to stop him. Vermire, as the record has it, was shot and killed my an unknown Rynnlan archer. Alere surrendered the Rynnlan occupation three weeks later, and the joint Rynnlan and Alereian forces crushed the Canthosian armies within a month.
