First topic message reminder :

Morbius wrote:No enemy you could possibly concieve is more powerful than the True Nightmare. Unless you present real coherent threat, it's peanuts compared to the Nightmare.

Sounds like a challenge to me!

The Lonely Ones? I can only recall a select amount of information about them.

Theta Magnus once travelled to their world to find them. They lacked any significant mental prowess, which made them easy to control. Having a lack of intelligence meant they never recorded their history in any detail, nor remembered anything of value.

The thing is, in their world, the Lonely Ones are no more than a game species (used for hunting and training purposes) under certain standards. They are pretty much bred to be pathetic, yet still put up a fight if subjected to emotional stress. Theta pretty much wanted to con Drakan more than anything, so provided him with a race that looked promising, but were in fact pathetic enough to allow a takeover and crusades more easily.

You can't really expand the history of an animal. You're kind of limited to behaviour and such, anatomy and possibly evolution/reasons for having certain adaptations, and how they've lived alongside the documenting species - that's virtually it. Confuse

A book titled Nightfall within the Arzonus libraries gives detailed descriptions of the time in which the Nightmare shadowed the world.

In its rise to power, it rallied huge armies at its command. Not just primordial beings constructed from the raw stuff of matter, but also mortals. Humans, orcs, demons, werewolves and a variety of other creatures, all considered traitors and criminals in their laws. They were rallied in hordes of thousands and all served one name.

But one of the Nightmare's most sinister creations were Night Shades. The opening passage says just the following;

"Ever had one of those dreams where you were falling or being chased? A Night Shade is the last breath you take when you hit the ground."

Yay, I've never given birth to a Night Shade. Smile

My "last breath" occurs in the world of the waking - ie, I wake up with a kick-start. Neutral

Theta - "Who are you?"

Talon - "I don't know, I don't know, I swear I don't know!"

Theta - "Why?"

Talon - "I was not instructed to have a life of my own, only to be a set of eyes and ears for the Master!"

Theta - "Master?"

Talon - "The Great master, I must not speak ill of my master, but my master's voice isn't in my head any more! I can't see you! All my life I have been blind!"

Theta - "Then why all of a sudden is your master not speaking anymore?"

Talon - "For all my life, the master's voice has been in my head, but then you came and now it is fighting against your mind!"

Theta - "For how long?"

Talon - "Not long."

Theta - "Tell me everything! I must know!"

Talon - "My master is so old, ever so old. The master lives in the dark space, always has done and plans to continue to do so. They've been growing in strength for so long, waiting to return at last when the chance came to them thirty-five years ago."

Theta - "What happened?"

Talon - "Magnus came, and he set the master free and allowed the master manefest."

Theta - "Giovanni and the Lupine Base disaster..."

Talon - "But my master has always been there, in the darkness and has been there even in death. They have perversed the course of humanity and all life for hundreds and hundreds of years! Feeding off the fear of our world, rallying armies of this world and the next for so many years, purging the timelines to eliminate all threat! The master has grown so strong now and in numbers so huge they are unstoppable!"

Theta - "Who is this master?"

Talon - "I doesn't matter!"

Theta - "Don't you dare say that! What is it?"

Talon - "So powerful, unmatched and always growing stronger until the day will turn to night!"

Theta - "Who is the master!?"

Talon - "But you came! And the gaze was broken! The master fears the name "Magnus" more than anything now, along with "Maelstrom"."

Theta - "Who is he!?"

Talon loses the ability to speak and returns to her zombie-like state.

MORBIUS! Are you too cool to answer the damn question posed to you a couple hundred times by your supposed friend DuskCurse. If you were a real friend to him, maybe you would actually respond. And I don't mean you have to answer him, I mean at least say you do not wish to talk about it. But now instead you scorn him as if he is filth unfit to fit to speak with you except when you deign it appropriate.

Sorry, I just really can't understand how you can write something for a game, with ambitions of renown and such, then even consider turning down the offer. Don't regret anything, because at one point it was exactly what you wanted.

I personally think Arzonus would receive a similar treatment to Dungeonering, should it happen. It would become the feature content for a length of time, or indefinitely until the next piece. We would be talking the largest piece of player written content to be released into the game, some of the largest additions of lore, etc. But this is irrespective of Arzonus... if you don't take it, the honour will likely be given to someone else at some point. There might be others already in secret discussion. After the first, it's "just another piece of player-written content".

If your right in saying RuneScape is on a downward slide (lame updates, etc) then surely that's motivation? Not discouragement? You have the opportunity to turn it around.

I just can't get into your mindset, Morbie. Confuse

I suppose it could just be a simple case of you feel Arzonus is too big for RuneScape.

And so man turned to God and said, "Sorry, I've outgrown my need for you".

I think It's quite simple. It is sort of what you said, Runescape really isn't the right medium for a grand story. The tale that runsecape gives us will never have even a tenth of the life and depth and power that it does in morbius's head.

Morbius, Arzonus is good. It is well written, interesting, and fun. It also isn't "War and Peace" or "Don Quixote". It was (please do correct me if I am wrong) originally written as content that you hoped would be in the game, not some "Werewolves control Runescape" mega-theory. Please don't forget that, in the end, Runescape is a game, and suggestions are additions to that game.

The Torn Realm is an alternate dimension, best described as one that is mostly made of abstract sciences than any definable matter. The realm itself feels almost living, as its shape is continuously changing as it engulfs more materials from the worlds the Nightmare has destroyed. Scattered throughout this realm are fragments of architecture, culture and design from almost every era and civilisation, lost in time to what was once believed to be a complete mystery.

There are no indigenous creatures to this realm, save for the Nightmare. Most creatures that live here are those that were moulded from primordial matter and imbued with simple instinct, though there are some creatures that have had more care and imagination inputted into their design, and the "collected"; stragglers whom were rescued from the brink of death and put into servitude in order to earn back their lives.

The realm's physics make little sense as they continously defy logic; climbing up a ladder makes you descend a level, you walk through a mirrored barrier and the only way to move forward is to manipulate your reflection to do so and there are many sinister tricks lying everywhere. The atmosphere of the realm is identical to the world it is linked to, save for it being very cold and an inconsistent gravity.

The Nightmare's main chamber is concealed away and a variety of obstacles must be dealt with before you can access it.

Iconic features;
1.Dark Crystal mines - dark crystal is primordial matter and can be used for pretty much anything in this realm, from crafting beasts to complex equipment.

2. Oni Fortress - The castle of demons, where the most powerful monsters live in luxury. This is the location of the final showdown with Paige Shadowplay.

3. Prism - A city lost in time. Its origin is unknown. Strange grooves carved into foreign stone with energy seen pulsing upwards of the veins at regular intervals. It is truly a beautiful sight, sadly lost to the Torn Realm.

4. Point Zero - The last place you'd ever want to go. You are in the Nightmare's capable hands now.
