Hello All,

The bosses seem to be out for the holidays and such so I don't have a lot to post that I 'can' post. But I am going to post an excerpt of the story that 2 other members have seen during an unofficial fun contest we had the other night.

I want you guys to know this is my first attempt at writing a storyline for anything. I've mainly done design and community management, but I'm giving it my best.

Perhaps when the bosses arrive home they will post all the concept art and screenshots they had originally planned to post as a Christmas present. Or perhaps they will just make you guys wait forever Razz

A few disclaimers all names and ideas in the introduction story 'excerpt' is subject to change. What is written below could be redone 100% if thewreck & Kinten see fit.

Without further ado.. an excerpt from the working introduction right now.

_______________________________________________

.....The miners fled and went back to their respective towns and communities. The miners, after what they had seen, refused to go back to Skyborn Mountains. The noble lord's were outraged as this was the center point of the continents wealth. The Skyborn Gem. The rarest of gems in this world only found on Jilahria (name subject to change). Word and rumors quickly spread and soon civilians began to fear and panic. Some even starting to build boats fearing this evil would soon ravage the towns and farms.

This sparked the campaign "A Call for Heroes". At this moment in time is when the eastern continent of Jilahria became of interest to many of those in Niarendial. Messengers sent news of great riches and reputation for answering the call. For the next 4 years heroes attempted to enter the depths of the Hurin Caverns.......


Jilahria (Jill-lar-re-a)
Hurin Caverns (Her-ren)
Skyborn Mountains (Sky-born)
Niarendial (Near-ren-dial)

_________________________________________________

Screenshots & Concepts

(this has been edited by thewreck)

the screenshots were deleted because of many reasons. Kalorian acted on his own since he hadnt been properly informed. The communications were almost dead around x-mas. This casued some confusion, which resulted in this.

the screenshots people have on their comps may be spread as you will for now, since the damage has already been done, note however that many of the screenshots seen here were not supposed to be released, EVER. they were screenshots we devs sent to each other to show different version of graphics we were developing and was in no way representative of the game.

Names are good. Story has grammar errors, tsk. Wink

Overall it feels a bit cliché, but from such a small part, it's hard to judge. And 'course, how the hell else would we get there if they were not in need of heroes. I got dibs on the five greatest feats and two bags of those gems. ^^

lol Enq, aren't you in for a big twist haha. Thats the great thing about only giving you an excerpt you assume a certain way.

As I said this may all change with Kinten and such who knows.
