Awesome!!!!! Nice work, tyvm for respondingJulian wrote:From deep into the forsaken woods, a hooded wanderer makes a journey to the known world.
He doesn't walk fast, he has no need to. Patience and fortitude, that's what is necessary to
survive in this godforsaken wilderness.
Suddenly, he stops. Out of his throat comes a mysterious sound, like a low-pitched whisper,
followed by a silence lasting only a few seconds, though seeming to take minutes.
But then the leaves of the surrounding trees start to stir. With a ferocious groan a large, wild
animal leaps to the lonely wanderer. Just when his fate seems set, the beast ends his movement.
While lowering his hood the man says: I am, Drake Sharpclaws, the beastmaster.
What, the suggest for Heroes by deti? If so I made this thread before I saw that thread but I decided to keep this up, cuz I don't want these awesome stories going to waste.Epicazeroth wrote:DragonKnight and Julian, I would have thought of those, but you beat me to it. Your descriptions were better than mine would have been (at least Julian's was), so I don't care. I forgot why I posted this, so I'm just going to put it on the official Suggestion forum. To get more views.
Nice, but from what I'm seeing it looks like the hero is evil, maybe he manages to break the curse but remains in the golem but as a good guy? ?dimumurray wrote:Here's my take on a hero character...back story and all...
Before the fall of Varadul, there was a small township far to the west then named Ester's Pass.
A powerful shadow mage came upon its people and sought to subjugate them. Despite resistance the town fell to the dark mage's power. The town now in his thrall, the mage demanded tribute, the firstborn of every household, lest he lay waste to the entire village.
Some of these children were killed outright for the mage's own amusement, others would serve as subjects of the mage's macabre experiments and still others would become the mage's slaves. However, among them was one who would find a way to destroy the mage. But not without consequence.
The then young hero fell victim to the mage's dying curse. The curse cast the hero's soul into a construct; a war golem the mage had created. The hero sought to return to his village but was spurned as a monstrosity.
The Hero would roam the land for centuries, immune to the ravages of time. Throughout the years he would fight in a multitude of battles often shifting the tide in favor of which-ever side he fought on. But he was fundamentally immortal, and bonds of any kind were for him but a fleeting thing.
That was until he met the woman who would become the love of his life. With her death he sealed himself in her tomb, and as the centuries passed his name would fade into myth, the legend of "The Balast" all but forgotten.
But...after a millennia...the tomb was disturbed. The ravaging trolls reveling in their conquest of Hammerhold sought to defile the maze-like catacombs beneath the city and unwittingly awakened the Hero of an age long forgotten... Balast The War Golem returns...
And what does the famed "Balast" look like :
