Clan Story Contest


Oh noez! Someone set fire to the archives! All of our clan's past and history has been lost! What's worse is that no one can remember what actually happened in our clan's past! It's now up to you to create and write our own NEW story! There are no guidlines as to what it can be about. You don't have to write the whole thing. A couple of paragraphs will do, but if you wish to write more, that's fine with me. Whoever is deemed the winner will become our clan's historian and will be able to write our entire clan story.

The end date for this contest is August 1st.

The winner and runner-up will also recieve special bonus prizes which I will announce later.

Please post your entries here. (even if you haven't finished them yet) If you are planning on entering please post saying that you will be and edit that post later with your story. Do not put your story in multiple posts.

The shadow-cloaked man looked about him, at the desolation of the once magnificent realm. The great lake was drained, golden mud cracked and dry, the beautiful lake now little more than sludge filled puddle, dirty yellow and filled with green slime. A great black stone, Nox, was lying at the edge of the puddle, smashed and emanating evil power, its twin lying broken in two on the other side. A great castle stood crumbling at the lakes former edge, creeping vines encasing the castle and stones lying in a mess at the base of the once-great keep. The hunter looked behind him at the portal, runes faded and weather beaten, dark green growth in the cracks made by the unkempt stone. Long, knee-length grass tickled the shadow’s legs, not soft and shining but dull and hard, the grass leaves traced in tiny thorns and bristles. The shadow looked around, a village lying in disarray, thatches rooves caving in and picket fences smashed upon the ground. The realm had once shone with magic, but now it emitted a sense of emptiness. The shadow moved to the edge of the great castles walls, his cloak fluttering around in the light. The shadow looked up, the castle walls broken and worn, the battlements lying at the base and the stones of the wall missing in a great number of places. It would appear that there were more stones missing than actually in the wall. Moving further into the courtyard, the shadow’s leg clanged against something hard and metallic, glancing down, he saw an old helmet, tarnished by the weather and carelessly discarded upon the ground. The courtyard appear to have doubled as a training yard, splintered and rotten posts lying upon the ground, one still stands, its top half smashed down long ago. The carefully placed paving stones were pushed up and cracked, grass sprouting between them, and roots of some young tree pushing them out of place.

At last, the shadow came upon the throne room, the throne itself tarnished, once golden, now a dull brass. The furnished and glorious hangings retelling epic battles were ripped and stained, disarray evident throughout the room. The shadows feet once again clacked against something, and once again he glanced down. A wolf’s skull, huge beyond anything he had seen before. Tattered fur was littered around the rest of the body, colourless grey, not the grey of many forest wolves, but grey, colourless, empty. The shadow closed his eyes and breathed, opening them once again to the scene in the history of this place…
… A golden man walked proudly through a golden gate encrusted with runes, knights and villagers behind him. The man was clothed in huge plate armour, a banner rising behind him. “Knights hear me! We have reached our new home, escaping the old kingdom that was our home. Follow me and we will make a new life for ourselves, a new kingdom!” The images increased in speed, and the shadow witnessed the building of the castle…
… “Our leader is gone, Fenrir weakens by the day and the twilight is dimming.”
“We must act now!” cried a young knight.
“Patience, boy, we must wait.” The images skipped forward, two months in passing…
… ”Fenrir is dead, the twilight is gone…” the same man muttered to the remnants of the knights, their clothing shabby and armour tarnished, all weak from hunger.
“We can no longer remain here, we are weak, we are leaderless and something must be done.” The same man became determined, “We will leave and fight to make a live for ourselves, if our leader has abandoned us then we will forge ahead, regain our honour and prowess in a new land, we will spread to many lands!” a raucous cheer sounded through the hall, the dead wolf body shaking as feet stamped upon the floor, pounding out their enthusiasm and willingness to go on under a new leader…
The images skipped forward a day,
… The knights and their newest leader pouring their energy into a portal of epic magnificence. The portal was huge, not made of stone but a solid wall of energy. Their leader cried out
“We are warriors, now we go on!” he leaped through the portal, screaming their name “LEGION!” the rest of the knights followed screaming their name, and as the last fell through, the wall shimmered and disappeared, the light dimming as the last vestiges of twilight leaving the realm of lore, into the new realm, a bridge between realms, a bridge into a land of maple, into Geilenor and into a future world of aliens and war…
Legion had awoken, born from abandonment into a world of strife, banding together and forming new binds of friendship and honour, going on together to regain what was theirs.

Agora. A land of many peoples, many creatures, many mysteries. Two of its most powerful countries, locked in an ongoing struggle for land and power. Cimmeria and Moira. Two countries, who have at last tried for peace, attempting to sustain this lull of peace, to keep the calm and remain as they are, without war. But, it is said that hidden intentions lie within both societies, searching for the lost power of the Manika. Moira, also known as the land of Fate, with the capital of Rondo at its center. This kingdom was once known for its righteous views, standing for the poor and less fortunate, upholding the law with the utmost vigilance. But, the king has changed. King Uthos no longer stands for the people, the entire government now corrupt with greed and power. Now, he wishes for nothing more than power.

Manika. Those who came before the human race. The ancients, the all powerful. Their era came to an end when they foolishly gave the humans a taste of their power. War broke loose, killing Manika and humans alike. The Manika that remained sealed themselves away, residing in their crystals. These crystals hold only a small portion of the Manika's abilities, granting the humans the power source to create civilizations, as well as harness the abilities of magic. It is said that particularly powerful Manika survived and remained whole, waiting for the right person to come along and use them, the one they shall bond with. It is these Manika that are the most powerful, and the most dangerous.

Legion. That is the name of those who stand for the weak. The poor, the meek. Once led and founded by a man by the name of Grey. He and his band of ragtags were dubbed Legion, accepting all who wished to fight for the cause. They fought for freedom and morality, wishing to right the wrongs committed by the corrupt Uthos and his forces. However, during a skirmish between the forces of the Royal Guard and Legion, Grey was killed by Uthos's head general, Nairo. His only son, Ragi soon took over as the leader of Legion, soon coming to be known as Aegis, for his stalwart disposition and battle skills. He now carries on what his father had done, looking for the answers as to why the King has changed, and how he can stop him. It is believed Uthos seeks the Manika, for some reason, and that is where he starts...

I love both entries so far. They both have their own strengths that make them great.

After much consideration, the winner is...
Spoiler:
 
Congratz! A new forum section will be opened up for you to write the clan story.

I'd also like to thank zev for entering. The image you created was nothing short of astounding. I had troubles picking the winner.
