PWNED Posted March 13, 2006 Share Posted March 13, 2006 [COLOR=Red]Years Ago[/COLOR] [SIZE=1][I]The Fire burnt warmly but cast little light into the study of the once great mage. The flickering shadows only hinted at the torrents of tomes and scrolls that filled the many shelves. Slowly Master Cardan walked over to the fire. 'Well my friends, your training is complete. You are not yet heroes as you have much to prove. But first allow me to enlighten you on Morcar.... 'Many centuries ago, Morcar was my apprentice. He worked hard and learned quickly. But he was devoured by impatience and he wished to learn the more powerful magic. I would warn him of the dangers that his impatience would cause and that he should be patient as he was already well on the way to becoming a great Wizard. But Morcar would not wait; Everynight he would stow into my study and read my spell books. The secrets that were held within them were great indeed, Once he learnt these secrets Morcar fled. 'When I caught up with him, I found him greatly changed. He had pledged his allegiance to the vast powers of Darkness. The Fool! He saw magic as a short cut to power and had paid no heed to the terrible price he would have to pay. I tried reasoning with him but he spat in my face and unleashed a powerful spell that I could barely counter. For many days we fought and as we began to weaken, Morcar fled to the Northern Chaos Wastes. There he healed and honed his skills, conjouring ancient powers that would assist in the otherthrow of the Empire. Nut he did not know what he had done. They will serve him while it suits their own dark puposes but in time they would obliterate him. 'The powers that Morcar has called upon will destroy us all if I relax from my campaign against him .Morcars Legions have threatened us once before. Then it was Rogar who aided me and defeated them. Now they march once more; already they are assailing the Borderlands. The Empire must again look for Heroes and to this end I have trained you. 'The path to becoming a hero will be rough one but its rewards are sweet. I shall speak to you again after this war- If you survive...'[/I][/SIZE] [COLOR=Red] Now[/COLOR] [B][SIZE=1]And that was the last I heard of him. My companions had been killed in the battle of Black Fire Pass, the slope that linked the Empire and the Borderlands. The Emperor had raised what might have been the largest army in living memory, Greater even than Rogans host. They drew up their lines on plains and waited. Spine splitting shreiks echoed throug hthe mountain tops, frightening the steeds and filling each and every soldier with dread. Then came the first assault, Pouring down the mountainside, like it was a regular hill instead of a near vertical drop, came the hordes of Morcar. They crashed into our lines but we held, it seemed as if we would be victorius, How soon we thought. We had not reckoned on the might of Morcar, appearing high over the battlefield unleasing his deadly magic. Lightning flashed from his fingertips and pillars of flame exploded among our lines. The screams still echo in my ears, especially that of my close friend who died at my feet. Our lines had been breached in dozens of places at the same time and the Enemy continued to charge. Then came the Doomguard- Morcars elite force of Chaos Knights. Our Legions broke and routed. The only soldiers that didn't flee were the emperors personal guards and many were slain protecting the Emperors retreat. The efforts were for nothing as the Emperor was consumed in an Inferno, leaving the Empire without a leader. My people surrended quickly and Morcar became the conquerer. I fled to the East into Arnhem, a large nation that had not fought in the conflict. Their King surrendered without hesitation.... The next day his head hung on the City gates. I continued to run until I found the Resistance movement, and thats where I found you guys.[/B][/SIZE] Character Creation Name: (Anything.
