[ Play this song whilst reading the following post- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wV0wPBYDQ6Y ]

Once upon a time, the BrikWarriors were mighty, and strong! Among them were the likes of Warhead, a great hero with many a tale of might and conquest(sometimes of the sexual nature), Rayhawk(a just and noble king), and Dr. X(a secluded genius who build the most marvelous machines!)!

In their glory they built a great keep, hidden in the highest mountain, that mortals could only reach by traveling through Hell itself!

Once, an unlikey group of heroes-to-be tried to seek out this mystic keep.
Snakemittens, the young and brash, but strong!
Ex-Lep, the ancient, but not broken, warrior from a distant age!
Keldoclock, the scholar that, through much effort, divined the location of this ancient keep!

They journeyed, first to the bowels of the Earth, and collected the glorious reagents to complete the ritual of Transport.
The Heroes had only completed the ritual, and decided to rest for the night, before taking the final step of their journey!

But alas! They were beset upon in the night, a veritable seige from the evil Notaturtle, who was indeed not at all a turtle, but a dark and powerful wizard!

Our heroes were almost broken, but pressed on through Hell itself, and dug through the very walls of Satan's lair, and cast the sacred Ritual, calling upon the spirits of Brikhalla!

The sage Keldoclock was the first to be forced through to the blessed keep, but alas! The thousands of years since it's founding had ruined the ancient structure!

Aided by Ex-Lep's old but steady hands, Keldoclock rebuilt the glorious keep, so that the Earth might once more know it's glory!

The keep was claimed by Brikhalla in but three nights, for it's beauty was great and it's ale cellar even greater, and with it were borne the three glorious new heroes!

Snakemittens, the young, bold, and strong!

Ex-Lep, the ancient, given new youth by the glorious horns of Brikhalla!

and the Sage Architect Keldoclock, who returned to the earth once more, for his work was not done.



There was a yet greater castle to build.

I think this should be moved to the anarchy server thread. Nice story, btw. And the small helpers along the way are forgotten by history. :-(

The new light and the swampland look awesome. There was a river running from the desert through the swamp to the sea. Later I found a natural lake surrounded by high mountains in the recpective biome and instantly decided to build my wizard's tower in the center of it.

While I built the first floor, night came and with it the Endermen, but they ignored me.

The new health system is way better than the old one. And now you find food everywhere. Mobs and mushrooms are far more common now.

I havn't found any villages or strongholds yet, but I've only played an hour or so.

@Keldoclock

I got to the end of the post right when she started to sing and it was incredibly awesome.
Remus: Harry... I'm a werewolf.
Harry: Are you fucking serious?
Remus: Well yes, but I don't see how that applies here.

^ guess we read at the same speed, than.

I find that timing speeches and monologues to music is almost universally a good idea, it's a trick I picked up from DMing.
