An Opportunity

Do you have him?

Yes, the creatures of light have finally been able to hand him over. Very interesting they are, I definietly sense the creators touch in them

I agree, and it is out own hubris that makes us think we we’re the only guardians created by them

Yes, my queen, I see what you mean. What shall we do with him then?

That is a good question, one that I have been contemplating since their emissary requested an audience with us. I have come to a conclusion as to why they did now. There are several, husks, left by the monster from the battle some months ago. Apparently, our companions of light have found misplaced essences in similar straights, thus why i believe they came to us.

I am not sure I understand my queen….

We have an abundance of bodies without souls, they seem to have found an abundance of the opposite.

My word…I had no idea!

Yes, the darkness these heroes fought and died against is related to the creation of the source of this evil here, so it would seem that a connection from the side of the light and life could be made as well.

Is it wise to meddle with the energies of the creators in that way? Would not we too risk corruption on a grand scale?

Yes, my love, there is that chance. But something about this all is awakening feelings deep within me. Did the creators not make both us and the creatures of light? Neither of us are destroying this life/light that we have found. I still have reservations though, deep seeded. If this were to turn out to be a trap, similar to what happened to the Earthwarder, I doubt this world would survive another creature of that magnitude..

Yes, my queen, caution must be observed.

Gather my sister, if she can separate from the dream realm. Contact the mortal we have discussed as well….this return will be harsh and a guide will be required.

As you wish, my queen….

    Actually, it was:


    If you’re gonna make fun, first LRN2SPELRITE, and second LRN2DOITRITE

    That’s all I’m saying. A bit more effort would be appreciated.

    If this is entirely based on your own imaginings than kudos. I like what you are doing if not your style. Writing convincing dialog without exposition is hard and when done well is very entertaining. Keep it up! If, on the other hand, I would know more about the world and back story of this snippet if I were involved in some kind of MMORPG, then BOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

    Monstu, it is a bit of both.

    The framework is based in that world, however I specifically take into account that not everyone who will read them will know the full history. That is why vague hints at characters are there instead of actually names.

    I use the existing framework as a training ground. I can easily whip together a story and define characters inside that context, but then hone my storytelling/writing skills by making the characters the point as opposed to the greater framework of the world and lore.

    The ‘fleshing out’ of an entire world with unique lore is also something that can help to hone the writing skills, but to sharpen the technique, and existing framework does help.

    If I may use the analogy that first you must understand the concept of the rocket and work on designing a more efficient one, before you move forward with the design of a completely new spacecraft, will it then garner a bit more leeway from you? 😉

    No fair using my soft spot for rockets. Wait that doesn’t sound right. 😮

    I think that my argument is valid, and that the Chancellor of the TV Room should see that. 😉

    I want to see how many comments we can get to this one post.

    WordPress said I was posting comments too quickly but then it let me post anyway. WordPress is a pushover.

    I guess it’s one per minute.

    Of not.
