I'm looking forward to seeing how the story has changed from the version that I read.

I'm not gonna spoil it for anyone though.

Sol, the city of ten thousand cesspits, squats like an expired toad on the shores of the once-gleaming Lake Knostaldia, fed now by the putrid Warkraught River. There are some who say it was once a beautiful metropolis of noble, enlightened migrants from the motherland of Warforum, but in these dark times few can bring themselves to believe those tales.

If Sol ever had any good old days, they have long since passed. Some mark the precipice of the cityís decline as the date when Good Lord Nyorloth was assassinated by Bluecoats connected to the Royal House of Metzen. Others hold that it was the controversial political marriage of House Metzen to House Kosak which marked the beginning of the end. Still others lament the pollution of the Warkraught River, which in its effluence ultimately contaminated the precious waters of Knostaldia. All, however, agree that times have never been worse than they are now, now that the city languishes beneath the decadent tyranny of he who they call King Polk the Slow.

Polkís rise to power followed a rash of deaths throughout the royal family of King Xie the Magnificent, culminating in a tragic accident involving a pair of salad forks which claimed the monarchís own life. With no closer heir left alive, the crown of Sol fell to Xie's distant cousin Polk.

For a time the marginally corrupt and generally dysfunctional Twin Senates treated their sovereign with a casual disdain, for Polk quickly gained a reputation as extraordinarily soft-headed. It was fashionable in court to make a nonsense of his unfortunate speech impediment and wandering thoughts, and it took most people very little time indeed to forget the trail of corpses which had led him to the throne.

Needless to say, they were sharply reminded when one day, without warning, King Polk led a bloody purge of the Twin Senate and greater Sol aristocracy, killing indiscriminately and ransacking the ostentatious manors and palaces of the city. Few escaped the initial onslaught and even fewer survived the following days. Polk transformed the stately Castle Wretkhan into a madhouse, desecrated by heaps and pools of human refuse and populated by the most unsavory characters imaginable. Broad swathes of the cityís gentry were declared enemies of the state and hunted down for execution or enslavement to the king's and his court's twisted whim.

There follows now a reign of terror and madness. The skies themselves weep for the sorry fate of wretched Sol and the gutters vomit their roughage in disgust. Sol declines, as many had doubted it ever could, still further.

Yet there are some who resist. They flit among the shadows, meeting in secret dens and back rooms, scheming of murder and rebellion. They plot the end of Polkís life and the restoration of Solís tarnished glory.

This is to be their story.
This is an awesome idea, I wonder if you have anything in store for me? (please don't forget me!!!!)

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.

One day the heroes shall find the being entrapped in the form of the cat by the ancients, and they shall free him in all their desperation. they believe it to aid them, but a constant unease follows the being. its shadowy form following them, ever watching.

are you afraid of a shadow?

Don Quixote fixates on Dulcinea, the ultimate demonstration of female objectification in all of chivalry.

In high school, I always insisted on spelling it Don Quijote so it would be the Spanish version.

Years later, I discovered the original Spanish version WAS Don Quixote. My mind was blown. I became a conservative forever. Or something, I forget.

Hmm. I donít really care whether Iím in this or not, but if I am, then my role had better not involve chains or a metal bikini. On pain of defriendment. Just saying.

(Archivist trying to piece together fragments of the past after the destruction of the libraries/search function seems about right for me, but whatever. As long as it isnít...that.)

Orb of Venom The Actually Official Scrolls of Lore Fanfiction: As Was Foretold

The rain came down in sheets, oiling the bricks and stones of the diseased city and muffling all other noise with its blank cacophony. In the piercing gloom and roaring silence of the storm, the city might have lain under a shroud of oblivion.

It was good weather for those who favored anonymity.

A skulking figure flitted briefly from the shadow of one doorstep to another. None but the most keenly observant of hypothetical onlookers could have marked his path. He was wearing a dirty raincoat with its collar turned up superfluously to hide his face, and water ran in streams from the brim of his hat. He was grateful for the rain but he knew not to take it for granted, and only after carefully searching the street for sign of pursuit did he take his next step.

He sprinted from one hiding place to another, dashing through puddles of broken lamplight, and paused once again. A suggestion of movement might have betrayed his second wary panopscopy if anyone had been there to see it, and then he was off again.

His progress was slow but sure. He was headed for Sol's very own Skid Row, a rash of slums and alleyways were the civs play rough and the cops never go. It wasn't a friendly neighborhood, but it suited his purposes, and those of his organization. It was known colloquially as Lordaeron.

It was nearly midnight and in what one might call, for the sake of relativity, the 'nicer' parts of that endemically grimy town, the streets had been all but abandoned. Even without curfew, the weather was such that no right-minded person would even consider venturing out of doors until morning. Here in Lordaeron it was different. Beggars, cutthroats, ladies of the night and other less savory characters took what shelter they could find beneath bridges and awnings, unwilling or unable to leave their post, not for curfew, not for rain.

The man in the raincoat and fancy hat stuck to the shadows and avoided the gaze of Lordaeron's dregs. He kept his head down and kept moving, heavy leather boots splashing mutely beneath the hissing rain. Eventually he slowed to a halt and looked up at a dingy old apartment building. He pressed himself into the shelter of the doorway and knocked.

Seconds later, a small panel at eye height slid back and revealed a large, soft-looking eye. It squinted momentarily at the shadowy visitor, then the panel slid back and the door opened.

The visitor immediately slipped inside. He took off his hat and shook it in one hand, scattering drops of water onto the floor. ďEvening, mister. Usual rooms?Ē The doorman nodded pleasantly and ushered the man down a musty hallway. The still air was suffused with the smell of opium and darkened rooms on either side of the corridor occasionally emitted sighs and groans.

At the very end of the hall, yellow light filtered through the crack beneath a closed door. The murmur of voices could be heard from the other side. The visitor approached the door, and after pausing for a moment to nervously shift his hat to the other hand, passed through.

Someone should write character bios, so it's easier to keep track of who's who.

I've replaced the first three installment with two retconned ones. The characters weren't working well in their original capacities, so I've replaced most of them with other posters. I'll try to have another bit up soon*.

It is the mark of a poor writer that he must explicitly spell out the age, weight, eye color, blood type, favorite ice cream flavor and life's ambition for the reader to understand a character.
