    In a land far away in the distant future... The world of Man was the Dominant race. but humanity was extinguished by a meteor striking the earth. humanity was thought to be destroyed until a few survivors arose from the ashes. they mutated into Man, Dwarf, Gnome, and Troll. During this mutation, the Elves; returned from their long iscolation from the earth and where the dominant race once again. Some humans went to the forests in the north and then became Druids. they studied the history of the Earth and the old Race of man. but one druid; Brona, was tempted by the great powers of Dark magic and abused his Druidic powers to use Dark magic. he sought to rule the world with an army of men. Thus began the First War of the Races. The dark Druid Brona was defeated and retreated to the mountains north of the Druid keep Paranor. 200 years later, Brona returned no longer as a mortal man but as a Shade named the Skull King. HE gathered an army of Gnomes and Trolls to defeat the Druids. He herded the Druids into Paranor and Slew them 1 by 1. He killed all but 1: Breman. Breman Forged the Sword of Shannara and gave it to the Elven King Jerle Shannara. Jerle used the sword to send the Skull King back to hell. Brona was thought dead but he still lingered within the Skull Mountain. Thus ended the Second War of the Races. When Bremen Died, his son Allanon was the last of the Druids and Allanon studied the mistakes his father made and made it his obsession to not make the same mistakes as his father. for the Sword of Shannara had killed Jerle Shannara via its secret power... Now Allanon has assembled a group. a group of brave men/women who will retrieve the sword 500 years later. for Brona still lives and the only one to stop him is young Shea Omshford: last of the Shannara bloodline. Good luck heroes!

    Well i love the book so much i used my 5 favorite charicters from it.

    In the town of Cullhaven, the group was about to be formed. Allanon called a meeting with the 5 other brave souls that volenteered to go on this quest.

    Allanon: we must leave at dawn. Time is precious for the Skull King will know of our presence if we do not move swiftly.

    Zane: If i may intrude, we will need an archer for hunting for food.

    Menion: I am the archer *strokes his Ash bow*

    Zane: alright... we need a guide...

    Allanon: I know this land very well elf. I am the guide.

    Shea: umm...Allanon, what can I do?

    Allanon: your time will come young Shea... you will be of upmost importance.

    Flick: well, I wasn't supposed to be here anyway but I am sticking with my brother no matter what.

    Balinor: I think we should get some rest. dawn will approach quickly and we will be tired from our journey here.

    Allanon: *sigh* agreed. goodnight!

    Kordin: Trust me, yo udont want to know what I have in here until you are ready.

    *Ryan and Kordin head off. They soon leave the town when they see a group of travelers. They pick up their pace ot catch up with them.*

    OOC: for 1 thing, in the book, Allanon is the story teller and Shea keeps quiet most of the time. but ye who posted it boasted it so ill hafta build off ur actions.

    Allanon: so, what are a human and a dwarf doing out in the wilderness?

    *Ryan looks around the campfire and sees Balinor*

    Ryan: your highness! why do you travel with this Evil mystic Allanon?

    Balinor: he is not evil! I donot know what my brother has told you people back home in Tyrias but he is not evil.

    Kordin: at any rate, we still cannot trust the mystic. he could be dangerous.

    Balinor: propostrous! Allanon has ever been my friend and teacher.

    Ryan: but why did you leave Callahorn my leige? it is your birthright to rule all of Callahorn and its Kingdoms.

    Balinor: I want to see adventure. *rubs the scar on his cheeck looking depressed*

    Kordin: bah, we cannot control the prince Ryan.

    BOT:
    * The rather large party travels for sometime not seeing anything and Ryan is getting inpatient.

    Ryan: Gahh! When are we gonna see some action. I didnt leave my home to just walk.

    Kordin: Ryan, be qui...

    Allanon: No, let him speak I have no problems with it. Although, Ryan, if you feel that you dont want to travel with us you may go off on your own. As long as you keep what we have told you secret.

    Ryan: All right, I'll see you later *runs about ten paces* wait, where are you traveling in case I want to meet up with you later.

    Allanon: we are heading to [insert location here]. you may rejoin with us later if you want.

    Ryan: Allright, see you later. Kordin lets go.

    Kordin: Ryan, I dont want to leave these people, they can really help us.

    Ryan: Wha... Fine, Ill go off on my own. See you later Allanon, Shea, Balinor, Melinon, and Flick.

    *Ryan runs off into the horizon, while Kordin goes into a depressed state and starts to trail behind the others for awhile.*[/color]

    *Ryan has run far into the woods, you can see tears runnning down his face and hitting the ground with a soft splash, suddenly he stops and completely collapses. BOOM, BOOM, BOOM. Ryan quickly gets up and draws his staff ready for anything. Suddenly a tall golem emerges with two broken trees flying passed Ryan. Splinters were magically curving around Ryan avoiding him, as long as he is holding his staff. The Golem charges Ryan and Ryan easily avoids its first charge as the Golem stumbles past. Ryan yells out an incantation*
    Ryan: Lastor Icid Kandin!
    *a small cyclone emerges out of the gem at the top of his staff. the cyclone slowly creeps towards the golem. The Golem setting up for another charge rushes towards Ryan, but gets it foot caught in the cyclone freezing it. THUD! the golems foot drops like a rock. Ryan now rushes forward and jabs his staff into the neck of the Golem and through the head. The golem bursts open and explodes water all over everything including Ryan. A wave picks up Ryan and through his mind Ryan can seem to control it. It seems Ryan has possesed a new move which increases his speed.*

    OOC:.. So.. does my "custom" character have to follow you and do everything you do..? Or.. Lol.. Otherwise then..
    BOT:
    *Meanwhile nearby, Evicised is lurking closely, yet un-noticed, climibing high in the trees she spys on the group. As the group keeps on walking, and talking, Evicised still spys.. Then a sudden movement by accident in the tree makes the leaves shatter and a rustle of leaves is heard. The group quickly turns around and looks around, while drawing their weapons they search for any sign of life or movement or enemies.*

    ooc: Why make an RP of a book that was terrible? It's a complete rip off of LOTR, except instead of a ring, it's a sword.
