The Campfire / From Seed to Sapling
January 16, 2018, 11:46:48 PM
From Seed to Sapling

The Cataclysm. One of the most destructive events I had ever borne witness to. When Deathwing erupted forth from the earth he brought with him a wake of destruction and carnage. The skies burned red, the earth churned and split into gargantuan chasms, and the waters heaved into towering waves of death and mayhem.
I stood and watched, helplessly as the world I had fought for many times was being shattered beneath my very feet. I wished to bright my shield to its defense but the task was beyond me. Impossible. So I was forcefully resigned to be that of a spectator for the worlds mounting pain.

But this woe did not go unnoticed, as earth was plunged into despair and anguish, it was drawn upon my pure wish to defend it. My woe was their woe, their pain was my pain.
Within me they saw potential, an orc that was willing to defend that which he held dear at all costs but not reckless enough to throw themselves to oblivion.
It was then that it began to watch me, follow me. Throughout the years since that dreadful day it has had me under its gaze and was testing my ability to remain true to those feelings.
When Ragnaros threatened our people with his fiery allies and Deathwing burned the skies, I stood with members of the horde, shoulder to shoulder. Willing to die to defend those who would become our future.

When the mists surrounding Pandaria lessened and Garrosh was corrupted by old gods. I let go of my clan ties to stand against that which would threaten more than just beyond myself.
When the portal turned red, and orcs from another Draenor began to flood our world. I worked with people I would have called my enemies to beat back a greater foe.
And when the demons came, I stood with my people and defended those that I could from the perils of the demonic invasions.
Now, as I stand here looking up at a face of pure, fiery rage I am once again filled with a similar feeling. Helplessness. As the sword is plunged deep into the earth it felt as if time had stopped and I was to watch this being I could not stand against wound that which I hold dear.

Then the voice came.

“Seven years ago a similar event drew my gaze to you.”

Shock jolted through me, I was being watched? How did I not notice? Why are they here now?
I turned to face my observer but found nothing but trees frozen in the wind. Where are they and what do they want?

“I can tell you have questions, and you will find your answers now, or in time.”

The mysterious voice’s presence was there now. I could feel what I had never felt for the past seven years. A faint lingering gaze too subtle to notice unless its presence was made known.

“Once again the world cries out under great pain, as do I”

What does that mean? As to answer my question the ground quacked and shifted. The rock and dirt lifted and congregated into an earthen form of floating stone and mud. The earth elemental was imposing but not in an oppressive way.

“Now, as then, the very earth is sundered but there is more on the horizon”

A brief glimpse. A wound swarmed by two large masses. One red and one blue. The wound seems to be bleeding and these masses are clawing for it. Sometimes the red overwhelms the blue, but other times the blue overwhelms the red. It was gone again in a flash but I understood.

“The future holds not peace, but turmoil. Even now as the earth itself is being assaulted by a being greater than you or I”

The future holds no peace. Not now, not ever. As long as we Orcs draw breath our enemies will seek to wipe us from this world and we will fight for our right to exist. This world needs to be shared, but it’s not big enough for everyone.

“Your superiors and theirs will return to their deep-seated rivalries and bring arms up against one another. You must endure.”

It speaks truths. War is a certainty. I cannot let myself be overcome by it. A warrior is not born, it is made and those warriors bare their scars. This world bares many scars and this will be another it shall wear triumphantly.
The elemental shifts, the presence shifts with it. An aura of certainty, and stability replaces its once imposing presence.

“I know that my trust, and my blessing was not misplaced. Turn now, face that which you fear with my blessing and my backing. That of earth”

I turn as it speaks, looking up at the face of hatred that I now know is Sargeras, dark titan of the burning legion, and feel not fear, or hopelessness, but a sense of purpose. But I have so many questions. They fill my mind. Turning I go to ask.

But there is nothing.

No sign that there ever was anything.

You will find your answers now, or in time.

In time it is, I turn back, as I was before the visions. My gaze fixated upon the blade that is being thrusted into the world I have fought for many times before.
Time begins anew. But things have changed. I feel a sense of hope for the future and I know there is more to this, I can feel it now.

Got bored, wrote thing while tired.

Not all are equal. We are the wretched, the defiled, cast out in the pursuit of image and purity. A fate that only the worst mankind has to offer will even endure. But we embrace it, for the shackles of normalcy are cast off into the dark as we embrace our fate that is destined for the abyss. Now that darkness looms over all and the light of day is threatened to be snuffed out by an encroaching darkness that one could not even fathom without madness, but not us, for it is thrust upon us the day we were banished to our deep, squalid homes for the rest of our miserable days. Now they approach us, pleading, begging, hoping against all hope that those that they once flung to the far reaches shall willfully accepted their hurried pleas under false promises of stature and normalcy.

Their pleas were not falling upon deaf ears, for the damned listen to all that sounds for the ears of the wretches are placed everywhere. The consensus was to leave them, abandon them to the thick, twisting dark of encroaching madness and let them suffer as we have., but no. What we have is no curse, it is a blessing in disguise. We have waded the waters of madness and submerged only to find that the waters are crisp, and refreshing. Those that shunned us into this hell shall see us emerge from it, our ascendance from the deep dark fissures begins and all shall see that those molded by insanity, do not fall prey to it.

I think a lot of rpers blame legion it Weren't All that RP friendly. Anyway I hope you figure it out drak

I might mong around Silvermoon for a bit and ponder my options, trawl some forums or the like and decide. If things truly are done and gone then I might look into Alliance guilds or Final Fantasy to give that a try

Damn, I blame the Legion for this, also Legion. Perhaps in time there will be a resurgence or something. I don't feel like falling back into Alliance, Elf or RandomRP. Resist the relapse

My personal favourites are anything from the Forgotten Realms.
R A Salvatore being my main stay.
His Dark Elf Trilogy and spin offs from that 8/10.
The Dragonlance books to me was what feed my need for Fantasy reading.
From Weis and Hickman 10/10

Ah Forgotten Realms, my favourite deity list for DND. Never read the books though might pick some up.

A side note, Chronicle 2 is coming out soon, 27th me thinks. Prepped and ready for another swanky WoW hardback
New addition to the list!

Altered Carbon - A book about a detective solving a crime of a murder, by talking to the victim of the murder as consciousness is now digital and people can buy the bodies of criminals. Very interesting concept, was more sci-fi than Cyberpunk but not half bad. Too many spontaneous sex scenes that seemed to lack reason. 5/7

And you should watch the TV series too. It's amazing.

Woah woah woah, this is a book thread. TV here is heresy. I only read when it's like 2am and I'm trying to sleep. But It'll probably take me like a year to get through all of my current list

A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin - I don't think I need to explain this one...

So... saayyyy someone has never watched the TV show or even seen the book on a shelf. How would you describe it to that person.

Stormlight Archive sounds like it'd be interesting to read when I move out from my current Cyberpunk binge

Got Altered Carbon in the pipe which should be here tomorrow so will crack into that and post my usual shitty review when I've finished. Count Zero, Mona Lisa Overdrive and Burning Chrome should be re-printed on Feb 23rd and will read those as they follow on from Neuromancer.
Finished Neuromancer.

Loved the theme, felt nice knowing the lingo as it was basically the predecessor to Shadowrun. Characters are somewhat interesting, main is a bit bland but Maelcum and Molly were interesting. Ending was a bit of a let down and some of it is a bit too cryptic. Weirdly written sex scene. 6/7
