Hey guys! After long last, I have finally fixed my computer and can post creations again!
Now, to the intro.
My character is called Thorogrin. He is a human (boring?)but is a necromancer as you will see so that gives him an edge in battle. I will join the 'Rogues' clan, so please give me a warm welcome. I like the rogues because of the free dress code :). Thorogrin has an interesting history. He is a prince from a faraway land, and has been deposed by an evil order. So now, he has come to Mythron to find his fame and fortune.
*This story is from the point of view of Thorogrin.*
Greetings, I am Thorogrin, prince of a far land. I have come to this new world to search for a new place and people to call my home, and I hope these people accept me with open arms. I have suffered many hardships to get here, and I hope the trip was worth it. My first adventure in this place was an encounter with bandits, and I'm lucky I got out of that rat-hole alive.
I had stumbled across an ancient castle, in ruins of course. My horse, Thorpendippity, seemed to know that something was afoot as soon as we entered the ruin, and soon I found myself sneaking past bandits. I made my way to a ruined throne room, were I was greeted by a huge troll, obviously the leader of the bandits, who was chairing a feast in his own honor. I shouted my challenge loud and clear, and the hideous creature took me up for the challenge.
He immediately got out of his makeshift 'throne' with some difficulty, and explained that I would have to get through him to make it out alive.
Coming here was not the best decision I ever made.
He produced an eerie staff, one that he claimed, allowed him to control the minds of the bandits following him. he gestured towards the bandits that were in the hall with us.
"Kill him you fools!"
The first bandit, an orc, charged at me with his axe. It was a futile attempt to lop off my head though, and I parried the blow as easily as a man swats at a fly.
Then I managed to spin around, sword in hand...
And did to the bandit what he had tried to do to me.
The head rolled almost slowly to the floor and made a dull thud.
I attempted to enrage the troll before me by making a bow to my dead opponent as if I were a master sensei admonishing a pupil. It did the trick. I could see more bandits, and I was already tiring, so I decided to show the troll who really was boss.
I muttered my signature spell underneath my breath, the spell that I had used to combat hundreds of enemies, and I felt that the troll should receive the same fate as all others before him.
Soon, a blue haze started to surround me. It tingles, just so you know when you try out the spell yourself.
The troll could only gawk at me in disbelief...
As I summoned my ultimate necromancer's armor from the void in a flash of blue light. I hovered over the ground for a second, and then all was still. For a moment anyway.
Another bandit, this one armed with a spear, rushed at me rather quickly. Too quickly.
As he ran past me, I slid my sword over the midsection of his body..
The lifeless torso crumpled to the ground.
The troll was getting really angry now, and shouted an order to one of his best warriors.
It was an elf armed with a dagger, a keen threat to my existence. I had never seen many elves in my life, and had never seen a rogue one, but I guess that elves aren't always what they seem to be. (This comment was not meant to be offensive for elves out there who are actually who they seem to be, it was just part of the story :))
As the elf lunged forward, I decided to use a spell I haven't used often, a frost spell. The spell seemed to leap out of my hand as I cast it, and the elf saw it and tried to get away in time. He wasn't fast enough.
Even as his body started to freeze, he uttered only a croak before he froze over completely, effectively suffocating him in cold water. Not the nicest way to die, but it had to be done.
The troll was dumbfounded that I had defeated his best man with only a single frost spell. he started to advance towards me in rage.
As he touched the frozen elf, it shattered into a hundred or so pieces, leaving only ice to show that an elf had been there.
Because of the spell's earlier success, I tried it again. This time though, the troll was ready for it.
The troll just raised his hand to block the spell with his arm, and for some reason, it didn't freeze his arm up. I believe he had a band over his wrist to ward off spells.
It was then that I realized that killing the troll would not be that hard. All I would need was the element of surprise.
With intended blur, (;D) I sped across the hall towards the throne the troll had used earlier.
Using it as a springboard, I managed to climb up onto the rock troll skull hanging above the throne.
Then, when the troll came to try and shake me off, I jumped firmly down onto the skull, effectively dislodging it from the wall. The next picture explains itself.
The troll died instantly and fell to the ground with a loud thudding sound.
I jumped down and relinquished the dead troll from his staff, instantly freeing all the remaining bandits from their mind-numbing slavery. There was laughing and happiness in the ruined castle that day.
I looked around me for something that could direct my path into Mythron further.
What a mess!
I examined a map of Mythron. It was then that I decided I would join the Rogues, and that I would strive to do good here in Mythron, even if I am a deposed prince and a necromancer.
Here ends my character intro, thank you for reading this story, and I hope you all receive me in open arms. I would like to say that I don't always have time for these sorts of things, and so can't take part in all the challenges, so sorry about that.
Anyways, I hope you all like the intro and hope you like my character in general.
Woah! Awesome intro! Welcome to LOM! I'm a little confused about your faction choice.... You said rogue which kinda looks like Nerogue, but then the no dress code tyst you mentioned seemed to indicate the Outlaws, but then it could be Rainos..... We just need a little clarification and we'll be all set! :D
