As I portaled in...
As I portaled in I stared down and saw my body of bubbly purple. Soon
I was into my complete stage and was facing a portal to the training
hall. I didn't have time to really think about what I was doing, I
was killed in a few seconds. There were elderly folk, into their 60s
who seemed to have fun killing noobs. Taking it as a grain of salt,
I only lost 250 pyreals. I decided to enter the training hall before
Bael'Zharon would grant me the ability to kill, and be killed. Upon
entering I chatted with the sentry, he told me some important imformation
and gave me a key. After killing some training golems, I met with
a young lad, looked about 3. He greeted me and was wondering if he
wanted to fellow, I agreed because level 3 protection is very nice.
He asked my name
"Jillian" I replied.
"Hello, my name is Velik, meet my brothers blotch'
I waved to them both.
"So want to go kill some people?"
"Sure" I replied, delighted. I came to Darktide
to kill, and this was what I was doing.
"Lets take this portal, Jil you stick back your
The 3 left, and once outside called for me to come.
I had to go to the bathroom, embarressed I replied "I'm fighting
someone right now" I farted a couple times, and knew it was coming.
I ran to the sentry and quickly asked for the restrooms. She showed
me and I took a great shit.
I thought to myself ^Your now level 4. Your shitting
skill is now 280!^ I was abruptly interupted, Velik was calling for
me outside. I scurried over and portaled out, I was surprised to see
blotch' and a'pexi's dead bodys. Velik whisperes "see that man,
about 24 over there, we gotta take him out"
We didn't want to act intruding so we casually walked
up and started talking. Velik whispered to me "Get on the other
side and wait for my go" I complied and went to his back, he
turned around to see what I was donig, Velik taking the chance pulled
out his bow and started shooting. The man then turned his attention
to velik, I pulled out my starter wand and impriled him. Now this
is what I came here for I thought to myself! After a few quick acid
streams, and a few arrows he had fallen. We rejoiced, looting his
placid body for any items we could find. Velik, thinking ahead said
the man will be back, go into the training hall and continue your
preparation. Before I knew it I was at the Hollow Minion leader looting
his notes, I brought it back recieved 1500 experiance, and an academy
coat. From the money I had gotten of people, I had bought me some
nice AL 83 Studded leather leggings, some Al90 gold gaunts, al 123
gold solls, I had been doing great, but my sister Jil needed the items
more than I. I had made a friend, with General Zarrofni, and asked
him if he could give these items to my sister. He kept the items,
and killed my sister, outraged by this I chased him. He logged, and
then would get back on and I would chase him and he would log. I camped
him for 6 days, never got him. Finally one day when I woke up from
sleeping, Velik gave me a tell asking me to recruit General Zarrofni
into our fellowship. "No" I said
"Why, you whore?"
"He stole my stuff, you know as well as I do hes
" I don't give a shit, we need to kill more fucking
"What the fuck, you little jackass recruit him,
or im starting another fellow"
"Sounds good, Have fun" I disbanded our fellowship,
and his green color dropped off my radar. Once Him and the General
go together, they attacked me. Defending myself I took out the general
first, he was weak, and did not have skill.
Velik was a tougher challenge, I was a weak 3 year old, Velik was
much farther along at 5. Finally after a 25 minute battle, I was the
victor, eating some cheese while looting his dead body. Blotch' and
A'pexi did not approve of their brothers actions, and joined my side.
Velik, wanted to kill us, and attacked us at every chance he could.
We slowly built up our forces, and strengths. Finally after long periods
of time, then 2 months of no talking, Just building forces,we decided
to meet back at the Lifestone in one month, winner takes all. I furiously
tried to recruit, but at the same time I was trying to advance in
my own skills. I had learned the skill of mana conversion, this allowed
me to cast spells, with less of a hit on my mana. I was worried, Velik
had almost double my force, and seemed to be strong. I did not back
down though, on the day of March 13 we meet. Velik had nearly triple
the forces of me now, but my group would never give up. Velik still
had 2 years on me, Me a 12 year old, Velik was 14. I had been preparing
for this day ever since that one day with General Zarrofni. Velik,
of course was the leader of his bunch, The general was second in command.
I snarled at him, the day he stole my armor and killed my sister was
just like yesterday. Blotch, and A'pexi, were my second in commands,
and were very loyal. Velik, decided to start attacking, he caught
us unprepared but we didnt have time to think we just fought. I went
for the General first, I was bolted by 5 people, but I kept on the
General, finally my lighting corricated over his dead body, I focused
my attention on the weaklings, that were hitting me, take them out
each with one bolt. I had lost about half of my force, but Velik had
lost nearly 2/3 of his. Velik was plinking his bow at my weaker members,
taking them out at a rapid pace, but I was doing the same with my
magic. Pretty soon it was down to 3 people on my side, me, A'pexi,
and blotch. The other side had 9. We decided to run inside a beaten
down building for a second to regroup. 3 of Velik's younger members,
decided to attack on thier own, we quickly took all 3 of them down.
It was down to 6on3. We said a prayer as a group, and hoped through
the door. I saw A'pexi go down, but not without a fight, he had taken
down 2 members of Velik's crew in his last swing. Blotch' had taken
down the 3rd strongest member of the group, but had fallen to Velik's
arrows. I took out one person myself. It was down to me the general
and velik. Then, to my surprise one of our new recruits was running
up. " Sorry Jillian!! I had to use the bathroom!!" A tear
rolled down my face, he reminded me, of me when I was a youngster.
he was a rambuntous axer, with a will. I started attacking Velik,
and the young boy had the General to half health. I broke my attack
from Velik and fired a bolt at the General, he was dead. I told the
young lad to retreat, his life wasn't worth risking. The battle insued,
over 4 hours this time. Finally a string of fire bolts hit Velik,
and he was down to 4 health. I was out of mana so I took out my wand
and started punching him. He was hitting me 10-20 and I was hitting
him for 0-1. I was down to 13 health, one more blow couldve killed
me, but somehow I evaded and delievered the fatal blow to Velik.
Yes Son. I still owe it to you Jhon. That day 8 years
ago when you took out the General.
I had learned later Jhon had no parents, they were killed by Velik
and he was on his own. I adopted him, and took care of him. Its 8
years later and I am 20 the little rascle is 11. I have just gotten
out of the Mage Academy, and Jhon is about to enter Axing school.
He has promise, he can take me out every once in awhile, which for
his age is a great accomplishement.
Next time : PK's, Mountains, Chicks and Mattekars. An interesting
combo, dieing to make an interesting story!
