SILENCE, YOU VILE APP!! A "short" intro is NOT in mah vocabulary!! D:<
MoreRPG Story Time 1
I don't think I mentioned this before, but I've been working alone on a game for several years now. I'm a huge fan of the Mana Series and the SaGa series, so back then, I wanted to make a fan game based on those 2 series.
But as years passed, my game ended up being something COMPLETELY different. Before I knew it, I had made several characters, several lists of weapons, armors and items, an incredibly looooong list of skills along with a truckload of other things.
I had so many txt files! XD Some time later, I noticed that I had lost some of those files. Honestly, I don't know what happened....
A few minutes ago, while I was searching for some pictures in my old external hard drive, I found one of the txt files that I had lost! I'm sooo freakin' excited!! It's the background story of the first character that I made! As you guys already noticed, my english is pretty wonky these days. XD But back when I wrote this story, I was still in top shape and so was my english! Hahaha!
I did say in my other post that I would write stories if I felt like it, remember? Since I finally found this story, I might as well share it with you guys.
Just promise me one thing: This is an original story that I, RPGLover88, made for my game, so please, don't steal my work, alright? Thanks!
Now then, here's the background story of the first character that I created: Adar!
Extra Story - Adar
*Note: numbers between parentheses indicates the character’s apparent age.
Year 8399 of the Norwynnic Calendar
At the age of 256(8), Adar lived with both his mother and father. Adar’s father worked as an assassin for the O’fol Tribe. Because of his job, he was rarely home, but when he had the chance to go back, Adar’s father would usually hunt a big Desert Retthaslotr, an animal that looked like a mammoth, and then bring it back home for his family. His mother was a skilled flame Magika user. She stayed home to protect Adar from dangerous animals and bandits.
Adar’s parents were very strict. Everyday, Adar would go to the Barren Plains to practice flame Magika with his mother. They usually trained several hours. When Adar’s father was home, Adar would train his gun skills with him instead.
One day, while he was training in the barren plains alone, Adar heard screams coming from his house....
Adar immediately ran back home and saw his house completely destroyed... and his mother lying on the ground several meters away, dead....
Filled with anger, Adar searched for the person, or rather... the thing that killed his mother. Yes, what killed Adar’s mother was a massive Desert Retthaslotr.
Not yet knowing that, Adar ceaselessly searched for his mother’s murderer when all of a sudden, he heard an earth-shaking stomp....
The loud noise was getting closer and closer and then, finally, Adar and the massive Desert Retthaslotr came face to face. The tusks of the Desert Retthaslotr were painted red with blood. When Adar saw that, an image of his dead mother immediately flashed through his mind. In a fit of rage, Adar bombarded the Desert Retthaslotr with his most powerful flame Magika spells but to his surprise, the beast was unharmed....
Realizing that he was powerless against this colossal desert monster, Adar tried to run away but unfortunately, he wasn’t able to go very far. The Desert Retthaslotr immediately caught up to him and when all hope seemed lost, the mammoth-like creature suddenly fell on the ground....
Behind the dead body of the Desert Retthaslotr was a tall old man dressed as a butler.
Butler: Are you alright young man?
Butler: Then let us go. The madam awaits.
Adar: G-go where? What madam?? Why did you save me? And… Who are you??
Butler: Hmm… It seems you have a lot of questions for me. For now, I will only answer your last one.
Butler: I am called Moriarty. I am a butler who serves a certain Shade family. Now, please come with me, young lad.
Adar: If I go with you, what are you and your “family” gonna do with me??
Moriarty: That is not for me to decide. I was only told to bring you back with me, sir Adar.
Adar: H-how do you know my name??
Moriarty: The madam will explain everything once we get back. Please come with me for the time being.
Adar: ...Alright. I have nowhere else to go anyway.
Moriarty: A wise decision, young lad. Now, please follow me.
Adar and Moriarty walked and walked and walked until they finally reached what looked like an enormous mansion.
“We have reached our destination” said the butler clad in black. Adar reluctantly entered the mansion....
Once inside the immense mansion, Adar looked around him. Several hunting trophies were hung on the walls, and in front of him was two staircases that led to the second floor of the mansion.
“Where am I supposed to go now??” asked Adar while slowly walking forward.
Adar turned around but the old butler was nowhere in sight....
Not knowing where to go, Adar decided to go up the stairs.
On the second floor, there was a long corridor with several doors on both sides.
“There are so many doors… It might be a good idea to ignore them and continue ahead instead.” murmured Adar.
After walking for some time, Adar reached a large room....
A beautiful woman with bright red hair was standing in front of what looked like a throne.
“W-who are you??” Asked the surprised Adar.
The woman introduced herself as Mia. Beside her, an imposing man was sitting on another throne. His name was Jasther, Mia’s husband and the Shade lord.
Jasther: So you’re Adar, huh? You look pretty weak!
Jasther: Since you’re gonna stay with us for a while, I’ll tell ya somethin’ kid!
Jasther: There are two things I despise more than anything in this world: Those damn idiots of the Daag Tribe who always think they’re better than us and weaklings! I absolutely DESPISE weaklings!!
Jasther: If your father hasn’t begged us to take you in, you would have died along with your pitiful mother!
Adar: Don’t you dare insult my mother!! Take back what you just said, you… YOU BIG PILE OF MUSCLES!!
Jasther: Ooh?? If you want me to apologize, then prove me your worth by working for me! Then, and only then, will I take back what I said about your mother!
Moriarty: Yes, my lord!
Jasther: Go with Moriarty. He will tell you everything you need to know about my mansion and your work here.
Moriarty: Come with me.
Adar followed Moriarty and at the same time, he swore to himself that he would make Jasther pay for what he had said.
Adar spent several years training and learning new things with Moriarty.
256 years later….
The day when Adar turned 512(16) years old, Moriarty brought Adar to the servants’ living quarters....
Moriarty: Tomorrow, I will introduce you to the person you will be working for.
Adar: What are you talking about? I already met the guy!
Moriarty: As you are now, lord Jasther has no need for you. Starting tomorrow, you will not work for lord Jasther, rather, you will work for his daughter, lady Hel.
Adar: His daughter?? Why?!
Moriarty: The reason does not matter. You are to be her teacher and bodyguard.
Adar: Tch… Fine…
The next day, Moriarty introduced Hel to Adar. Hel was short and she had exceptionally long, jet black hair with striking red eyes.
Moriarty: This is lady Hel. She is 96(5) years old. You will teach her everything she needs to know about forbidden Magika. You will also take care of anything else that she might need.
Adar: *Whisper* What a pain…
Moriarty: Hmm? Did you say something?
Moriarty: Then I shall now take my leave. Make sure you serve the young lady well.
After Moriarty left, Adar unwillingly taught Hel everything he knew about forbidden Magika.
Many, many years later, Adar was now 1,024(32) years old and a trusted member of the O’fol Tribe. Hel was 608(19) years old and had mastered over 6 sub-types of forbidden Magika. She had become the most powerful forbidden Magika user in the history of Norwynne.
Year 9423 of the Norwynnic Calendar
The Daag Tribe attacked the O’fol Tribe without warning....
A fatally injured Shade warrior was able to reach the throne room to warn Jasther and the others....
Jasther: Those damn cowards!! I’m gonna make them regret attacking us!
Moriarty: Your orders, madam.
Mia: Take Hel with you and protect her with your life.
Moriarty: As you wish.
Mia: Adar! You’re coming with me! We’re gonna go out there and kick some Wisp butts!
Adar: Awright! Haaaahahaha!!
Not long after leaving the manor, Adar could already see his Shade comrades fighting against the members of the Daag Tribe.
Mia: There are so many enemies!
Adar: Yeah! Killing all of them is gonna be a blast!
Mia: Hahaha! You really love fighting, don’t you?
Adar: Haaahaha! Fighting strong enemies is the only thing that makes me feel truly alive!
Adar: Enough chit-chat! I’m gonna go have some fun now! See ya later!
Mia: Alright. Make sure you come back alive!
Adar fought enemy after enemy after enemy....
Several years later, near the end of the war, Adar fought against a powerful Luna spirit....
But Adar couldn’t do a thing against this fearless foe....
The Luna spirit took pity on Adar. Instead of killing him, she decided to seal Adar’s powers and memories....
Luna Empress: The people of the O’fol Tribe and fools like you, who ally themselves with them are the reason why this world can’t be at peace.
Luna Empress: That is why, we, the Daag Tribe, decided to remove your kind from existence. Now, begone from my sight, filthy vermin!
...And she sent him to a far away place....
The war continued for some time, and in the end, the Daag Tribe was victorious and the O’fol Tribe was nearly annihilated....
To be continued in the main story....
Reading this story again after I don't know how many years made me so freakin' happy!! If only I didn't have this stupid memory problem, the story, or maybe even the whole game, would be completed by now.... Anyway! Enough with the boring stuff! If you guys end up reading the whole story, PLEASE, I really, really want your feedback! Even if this is taking a LOT longer than I expected, I'm still serious about making my game. So please, don't hold back and tell me what you think of my story. Just don't say stuff like "Your story is shit" or some insults like that. Thanks!
