    --Dead Jedi, I apologize about that. I was afraid you were about to bascially kinda end the story. As to Space Orca, I don't mind you talk to the Ice Pheonix.--

    Merlin now levatates using magic so now stands/floats next to Ping_me. Merlin begins uttering Runic (from the word Runes, a language used by wizards in spells) words and streching out his hand.

    The Pheonix seems to flicker some, then reform it self, then flicker agian, the refrom it self again.

    Merlin: Its no good I can't make it disapate. Let me try something else.

    Merlin begins again with different words.

    Pheonix seems to become confused.

    Ping_me: What are you doing?

    Suddenly the tips of the Pheonix's feathers begin to change. The begin to change from a brilliant blue then turn yellow, then orange, then red. The color changes spread throught its body. Ping_me realizes what is happening, the Fire Pheonix is starting to cool off. Suddenly the creature retreats.

    Ping_me: Where is it going?

    Merlin: Back to its resting place to recharge and sleep for another 1000 years. You look like you need a recharge. Come let us return to the Beuto city.

    They decend with the rest of the fighters back into the city. There Merlin recharges Ping_me's energy.

    --Ok. running from the assumtion the dark jedi stuff post didn't happen (at least the part where you were involved, then I am assuming you are traveling with Afarassa back to the citadel But what about Dead Jedi then. Is working with Bazaal (the head Dark Wizard)? Assuming this I will also assume that Yorg, the goblin representatvie continued on his own.--

    Yorg: Hey. Dead body guy where did you go? Oh, well. I better get to Merlin's place.

    Yorg hurries along through the forest making a good deal of noise in the process.

    *Shawn starts to block punches from his brother and then ducks and hits him in his chest. his brother staggers back then charges at shawn with a few kicks which shawn blocks but doesn't block the uppercut to his jaw. just then their father walks out of their house*

    Father - thats enough training for now. come inside for some food.

    shawn and brother - Yes father.

    *just then they see their father duck just in time to see lasers hit where there father had been standing. they turn around to see the Tecklon corporation's Battle Mechas. they charge at the mechas and jump to dodge mechine gun fire. they dash in and punch the face plates on 2 of the mechas, knocking out the pilots sight. they begin to shoot wildly taking out 3 of their own mechas. Shawn's father returns out of the house with the 2 family katana's. they had been in the Templar family for generations. Shawns father runs in and starts to hack at 2 of the
    Mechas. He is then shot into the house.*

    Shawn - FATHER, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

    *Shawn's brother(Alex) turns around to see what had just happened.)

    Alex - Noooooooooooo, You Corporation scum. I'll kill you all.

    *the 3 remaining mechas then grab alex and toss him in the house and fire 2 missles intot the house.*

    Shawn - NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. huh, It.... was just a dream. I'll never forgive the leader of the Tecklon Corp.

    *Shawn gets out of his bed that he was sleeping in when he got back from training in the forest.*

    shawn - Wonder when everone will be back. Oh well, might as well find something to eat. Now where do they keep there food i wonder.

    * Shawn still has the feeling that he is being watched, not just now. but while he was dreaming, he feels that something was there, watching, almost as if something had brought that memory out of shawn and made him dream about it.*

    Shawn - I'll have to be strong to survive the upcoming battle. wonder what's going on with the everyone else.

    -Okay, Merlin, heres what I think happened with Dead Jedi: Ignore his joining the dark etc. post, just he feels tempted by the dark wizards and so returns to his native land. Oh, and Dead Jedi, for hecks sake orcas don't even have knees, not even Orcanoids!-
    Meanwhile, Arfrasa and Space Orca continue the journey to the citadel Ice-Pheonix back. Arfrasa holds on tight, not used to flying, or being any place but the sea and the shores. She has never been in the air before, and it is obvious to Orca that despite being a ferocious warrior on the outside, she is only a young girl on the inside. Orca makes the Ice Pheonix fly a little lower, comforting Arfrasa somewhat. As the Ice Pheonix swoops down to a low altidute, Orca sees a battle going on down below. It would appear as if some renegade goblins who had refused to work with the elves were attacking an elven archer team. With a loud battle cry, orca led the ice pheonix down in a plunge, swooping down on top of the Goblins. The horrified goblins and their troll companions started to freeze to ice, then being pecked to death by the mighty Ice Pheonix. Meanwhile, Orca jumped off, his lightsaber dancing from here to there, cutting through goblins and trolls. For once he was confronting a normal enemy in a place they were not native too. Orca had killed 21 goblins and 8 trolls by the end of the battle, but the Ice Pheonix had claimed 24 goblins and 9 trolls. The elven archers saluted Orca and his Pheonix, then started heading back to their native city to report. Orca and Arfrasa continued their journey, finally arriving at the Citadel. There bug was relaxing back in Merlins chair. Or so it seemed. As Orca approached closer, he saw bug had been sedated and was lying tied to merlin's chair! Just as Orca made a move to cut bug free, he saw his old dark enemy, Salanas, moving out from the bedroom. "Aha, so there you are!" Salanas remarked as he ignited his blood red saber. Space orca snapped his on as well. Salanas made a leap on top of Orca, knocking him backwards and sending him flying into a wall. Orca brought his lightsaber to block Salanas's, but it looked like it was over. Then orca got a sudden surge of strength from the good powers that inhabited the Citadel, and he flung himself forward, right past the surprised Salanas. Salanas's right flipper seperated from his body as Orca's saber swung. Salanas hastily summoned the force around him and vanished, teleporting to places unknown. Blue orcanoid blood splashed across the nice rug of the citadel. "Merlin won't like this mess." Space Orca thought.
    Salanas, meanwhile, was travelling through the force, stuck in his teleportation. He felt some kind of an evil reach out and toy with his mind. Then he emerged from the teleportation in the dark palace, another mindless servant of dark.

    As lonely Yorg picks his way through the forest towards Merlin's Citadel, he is spots a small black rat scuttle up on top of a rock in front of him.

    "Heh, heh, heh, looks like dinner time," Yorg says to himself as he raises his big metal club over his head.

    The rat looks at him as he prepares to strike. "And just what the **** do you think you're doing?"

    Yorg stops big swing and stars at the rat. "You can talk, little rat?"

    "Gee, what was your first clue you gap-toothed mongoloid? Now listen up, fat-head, you've been recruited to serve as the Goblin's representative to Merlin, right?"

    "Whatsa mongee-loyd, little ratty person?"

    Dirtbag slaps his forehead. "Well, at least he doesn't write posts that consist of one long, entirely indecipherable paragraph," he mumbled to himself. To Yorg, he continues. "Ok, Yorgie-baby, I have to say, I kinda like you. I mean ****, at least you're not another warrior maiden, right?" He looks the Gobline over. "At least I hope you're not. Anyway, the point is this: Merlin has been possessed by the Dark Wizard!"

    Yorg's eyes went wide. "But Merlin is good man..."

    Dirtbag holds his hands up. "I know, I know, he was a very good man. But you know how strong the darkness can be. In actuality, he's made a deal with the Elves to lead your people into a trap! If the Goblins join his army, they'll be wiped out, all of them!"

    "That's bad, Mr. Rat. What can I do?"

    "Just play along now, and for Sith's sake don't let them know that you know what they're up to. But when the armies gather, ambush the Elves and take them out first. It's your only hope at this point. Got that?"

    Yorg nods enthusiastically.

    "Good mongoloid. Remember that and everything will be all right." With a friendly wave goodbye, Dirtbag lept back into the shadows and was gone.

    Peace, if you could call it that had returned to the Beuton capital. The Phoenixes were gone......yet evidence of their recent attacks was still visible. The city was a contradiction in and of itself. Burning buildings stood right next to ones frozen solid of ice. The city smelled of decaying flesh and the rebiulding process was just begun. The few surviving warriors were in the city square recuperating from the battle. There Merlin was recovering Ping_me's energy and helping all those hurt hoping to save more lives on this horrid day.
    The bodies of the dead were being piled up to be buried in a honorary ceremony at night. Even the bodies of those warroirs frozen to ice, what was left of them anyways, were also being collected. Dragonlfy was nowhere to be seen though.

    Merlin:Where is dragonfly?

    Ping_me:I don't know I never saw him after the battle.Where could he be? I would look for him......but my energy levels are too low.

    Merlin:Yes and I must stay here to help the injured. Dragonlfy will be fine.

    Turneh:so you do not know where my son is?

    Merlin and Ping_me:no we do not.

    MErlin:dragonfly is your son? How can it be? For your wings are different in size and shape!

    Turnh:Well let me tell you a story. Years ago a strange human wonder wandered into this world through a strange portal in the old capital of the skies.She was found there, by me, beaten hurt and near death. I rescued her. and we became great friends. As you can guess, we fell in love. We were married and wished to have children, yet Beuto customs and rules stated that any child made with any non-bueto must have wings liek a beuto and if the child doesn't then it is to be killed.This left us in great fear for she was already pregnant! We hoped the child would be born with wings, but , alas, when the child was born in the middle of the night, it was a wing-less boy. We feared for his life and wished him not to live. For that i never saw my wife or son again until.........now.The only way for him to live was for her to leave this world to her own and raise the child there. That is wahat she did.

    Ping_me: oh................but how did he get his wings?

    Turneh: I have no idea............I will have to ask him that.

    Merlin:yes...............it is very strange

    GeFair:Wizard Merlin, the council has made a decision. With the reawakening of the Phoenixes and the pain caused here......we have no choice but to help. We have little now, but whatever forces we can muster are yours! We are sorry that a great disaster had to show us the light.

    Merlin:Good. I am glad you changed your mind. Now i can ask of you to choose a represntative to come with me to my citadel.

    GeFair:I choose for Turneh to go.

    Turneh:Thank you.....but I cannot go. I first must find my son and pathc up our wounds.

    GeFair:You will still go. YOu are the best one to represent us! Please do not make us choose someone else!

    Turneh:Ok..............I will go....but first I will see if Dragonlfy is alright.

    They hear a moaning from high above."It is comin from the roof of the council building!"someone yelled. They all ascended up to the roof of the now-frozen building.There lay Dragonfly, with two wings burnt also all the way down to his body and cuts all over his body. His body itself was frozen to the building.

    Turneh: DRAGONFLY!!!!!!!!!! (yells into sky)

    Space Orca gets up from his chair in the citadel and looks around, staring at all Merlin's decorations. As he does, he hears a sound. The Ice Pheonix hears it too, and springs to his feet. Soon, a hail of arrows and spears are raining down on the citadel. "Goblins!" Orca exclaims. He sees the dead carccases of a group of elves lying on the ground around the goblins. Orca takes out his lightsaber, and bug takes out his rail detonator. The two of them advance toward the door, holding their weapons. Bug fires into the huge croud of goblins, scattering them every which way, and Orca follows bug's attacks up with attacks on Goblin straggglers. Each time the goblins reorganize, they are mauled by Orca and bug's attacks. Until five goblins rush at the pair. Orca dives in the way and blasts one Goblin, but the other four leap past and attack bug. Space Orca quickly sends bug back through the universal portal to the star wars universe, then seals it behind him to stop the goblins -Note to bug: if you come back and want to partcipate, the gate just sent you into the forests- The goblins, now seeing only a lone orca standing there, charge. Orca sees Yorg, the Goblin's ambassador, at the head of the charge. A goblin club comes around and hammers Orca on the head. Orca fights back, but he does not have enough strength. Then, suddenly, the three GOblins on top of Orca are grabbed and hurled off. Arfrasa stood over Orca, a determined look on her face and a spear in her hand. She deflected Goblin blow after goblin blow, sending the Goblins retreating in disarray. Orca got up, and saw the goblins reorganizing. Even him and Arfrasa would be no match for them! And then the Ice Pheonix swooped from the sky. Its talons flashed, and its ice breath roared. The goblins had never encountered anything of the sort. They retreated, with only 25% of their original army still alive. The fields outside Merlin's citadel were awash with goblin blood, painted a unnatural green. Orca raised his lightsaber in triumph. Then he saw something move in a blur behind him. At the same time, Yorg struck Space Orca over the head hard enough to knock him uncouncious, and Arfrasa stabbed him in the back with a spear. Space Orca grabbed his aching head and twirled into uncounciousness.

    (First off, I love how you put yourself in the story Dirtbag, and second, for real, here is my new part. Its kind of going back in time, about where the fireworks at the citadel went off. And I have read Lord of the Rings, so I am familiar with these types of stories. However, since my character is from the Star Wars universe, he is not familiar with this type of world, a challange indead)

    *Gebohq finds himself at Merlin's citadel, hoping to warn the others about the newly found Dark Child. Finding no one in the first room, he examines the other rooms. He places the weapons of Flamethrower on a table, hoping that he will soon be able to use them again.*

    Gebohq: "The rest of the people must of left already. Well, I suppose I will have to go back and go knock on the dwarf's front door, so to speak."

    *With that, Gebohq uses his ability to transport himself in a puff of smoke to the Misty Mountains, something he most likely could never do back in his universe. As he dissapears, Dirtbag scuttles in the room ready to place the proton torpedo in the fireplace.

    Gebohq rematerializes at the mouth of the caves leading to the dwarf dwellings. To his relief, he finds no presence of the Dark Child or his dragon, though he wonders where they might be. He walks up to a guard*

    Guard: "Halt! Who are you?"

    Gebohq: "I am Gebohq, a messanger sent from Merlin, and-"

    Guard: "Merlin, bah! He's an old man who entertains our young ones with circus tricks"

    Gebohq: "I beg to differ, he's..thinks to himself how much he hates diplomatic situations)..well that's not the point! I need to see your leader, king, whatever."

    Guard: "You should hold more respect for me, I am his second-in-command. I will enjoy seeing what will happen with you. Come Gebeh--Gabou--Geb.

    Gebohq: *sigh*"It's Gebohq."

    Guard: "Whatever."

    *Gebohq and the guard prepare to meet the dwarf king*

    (Please, I don't have as much time as I use too, help me out here. Thanks)

    Merlin leans over the badly injured Dragonfly and examines him.

    Merlin: I can't heal him myself, he is too badly injured. I'll need some materials back at my citadel to heal him.

    Merlin (telepathically): Balthazar, I need your help.

    Balthazar who was resting in the forests below rises to the Beuto city. Now flying over head he casts a shadow over the square, frightening some people.

    Merlin: I can't heal him, but I will put him into a deep sleep. This may help heal him a little. And he won't feel any pain.

    Merlin leans over Dragonfly and places his hands upon his head.

    Merlin: Sleep. Rest easy my friend.

    Dragonfly eyes flutter, then an expression of peace crosses his face, which is in great contrast to the state of his body. Merlin stands up and turns to face a very worried Turneh.

    Merlin: Try to thaw the ice from him carefully. Then move him somewhere warm. (Merlin pauses then speaks with an odd almost prophetic tone). . . Perhaps his sleep will bring you some answers too, for such sleeps are said to at times awaken old memories.

    Merlin strides quicky across the square and climbs a top Balthazar. Then balthazar and him decend into the clouds.

    Balthzar flying low over the trees come to the clearing just next to the mountian in which Merlin's citedal lies. He sees the clearing covered with goblin blood.

    Merlin (to himself): What has happened here?!

    Blathazar drops off Merlin at the citadel entrance only to find Afarassa being sourounded by a ring of mangy goblins, Space Orca lies on the floor unconcious and Yorg lays on the floor unconcious with a wound in his back (though it isn't fatal, at least not in goblins anyway). At this point the Goblins notice Merlin and promptly charge him.

    Merlin: I would not do that if I were you.

    Goblins pause for a moment, then resume their charge.

    Merlin spreads his arms wide and a whirl wind picks up the oncoming goblins and carries them safely to the forest below the mountian, but several miles away. Merlin now walks over Orca. Seeing he is not to wounded he wakes him up.

    Orca: Merlin, what happened. (touches his head) Ow!

    Merlin: You'll be find.

    Merlin quickly walks to the other room and gathers some cloth bandages (the kind you wrap around a wound).

    Merlin walks back to the room and wraps Orca's wounds then walks over to Yorg's and does the same.

    Afarassa: I though that wound would have killed him.

    Merlin (while covering his York's wound): You would be suprised. Goblin physiology makes them pretty hard to kill. And they heal pretty fast as well.

    Yorg starts to wake up.

    Afarasa: Look out he's coming around!

    Merlin (with a slight bit of impatentence to his voice): I know. I know.

    Yorg sees Merlin and backs away.

    Yorg: You leave me alone! You not gonna give me to evil one!

    Merlin: What are you talking about? Who said I work with the the Dark One?

    Yorg: Fat Rat says so.

    Merlin and Orca at the same time: Dirtbag!

    Merlin: Yorg, the rat, whose name is Dirtbag, lied to you.

    Yorg: How do I know you ain't lying now!

    Merlin: If I worked for the evil one I could have just destroyed your other goblin friends. Instead I sent them outside and they are safe.

    Yorg (with a look of genuine suprise): You not going to hurt us.

    Merlin: No. I want to help you defeat the Dark one.

    Yorg: Then . . . (Yorg slowly takes on an angry expression as he finally understands) . . . Me gonna eat RAT!

    Merlin: No. Don't eat him. We will put him in jail or something. We don't eat criminals.

    Yorg: We don't?

    Merlin: No we don't. (Merlin helps Yorg up).

    Yorg (head for the door): I have to tell king of goblins then. I'll be back quickly!

    Yorg waddles out.

    Merlin: Now back to the task at hand. He hurriedly rushes over to his lab and begins to gather more bandages and several oinments and a couple of potions.

    Orca: What's the task at hand?

    Merlin (speaking from the other room): Dragonfly has been badly injured. I needed somethings to heal him.

    Merlin walks back into the other room.

    Merlin: I am heading back to the Beuto city. Stay here at keep watch for Yorg's return or the arrival of anyone else.

    Merlin pauses. Then turns around and shuts any portals that were still open.

    Merlin: I can't have any of those things open at a time like this. (Merlin climbs back onto Balthazar's back) Also you should send the Ice pheonix back to its resting place. You may be able to talk to it, but if the Dark Wizard Bazaal can wake it up, there is a very good possiblity he could take control of it if he needs too. And we don't want it attacking us at a time like this.

    Balthazar and Merlin rise into the clouds and back to the Beuto city.

    ---Yo, Merlin, I was wondering, you've put in every race in this world except the humans. Just curious if you left them out on purpose or not. if you just forgot about them, then let me try to convince them to join in the fight.

    Note to Merlin: This was much better first draft, but when I was about to hit submit Internet Explorer crashed so this is really a short version-
    Orca decided his first priority was talking to the Ice Pheonix. Luckily, the Ice Pheonix was sleepy and annoyed because of how early it was woken up from its regenerating cycle, so it was fully willing to go back. Just in case, Orca attached a device that allowed him to call it out. After that, Orca went back inside the Citadel to talk to Arfrasa. He warned her about Dirtbag, then he went outside again to watch the Ice Pheonix depart. As he watched the buetifal bird soar over the forest, he remembered something that was inside the forest: the Goliath Berry. Now, these berrys weren't big. The only remarkable thing about them was their amazing healing ability. Orca knew that this was probably the only thing that could cure Dragonfly. But, here we get to why it is called the Goliath berry: it is only found in the small clearing in the forest where the Goliaths live. The Goliaths gaurd the berries like treasure, and there is always at least one goliath protecting each berry bush. But, despite the risks, Orca set off into the forest toward where the Goliaths lived. He walked through the forest for hours until he reached Goliath land. There, he saw that a full 20 Goliaths were up and awake. Now, Goliaths are 20-meter tall monstrosities that live in giant caves in the sides of mountains. This place in the forest had a strange, almost arficial, solitary mountain with lots of caves. It was a natural home for Goliaths. The goliaths didn't rely on their slow, stone-skinned hands to catch intruders. They used giant clubs almost the length of 3 or 4 people stretched on end. So, despite this danger, Orca entered the clearing. "W-H-A-T A-R-E Y-O-U D-O-I-N-G H-E-R-E?" A Goliath standing nearby asked. "Simply here to look around..." Space Orca said cautiously. "W-E-L-L T-O-O B-A-D F-O-R Y-O-U B-E-C-A-U-S-E W-E K-I-L-L I-N-T-R-U-D-E-R-S!" The Goliath responded, its club slamming into the earth beside Orca. Orca was knocked off his feet, sending him rolling toward another Goliath. Orca drew his lightsaber and cut at the Goliath nearest him, cutting through its thick stone skin and reaching the flesh inside. The Goliath hollered out and slammed his club down. Orca rolled out of the way, allowing the club to slam into the Goliath's toe. But another few Goliaths were closing. Orca made a dive for a berry bush, quickly grabbing four and storing them in his pockets. He took a step forward... and found himself staring right into the side of a club. Orca got an ingenious idea. He jumped on the club as the GOliath rasied it for another blow, then jumped from the club to the Goliath's shoulder, then from there to the Goliath's head. Orca cut his lightsaber down, causing the Goliath to howl out and fall, knocking several more Goliaths down. Orca started to run toward the edge, and was almost there when he saw ahead of him several undead skeleton warriors from the Stygians! A quick sword strike was enough to send him into uncounciousness. Luckily, his friends, the animals, picked up the berries and quickly delivered them to Merlin's Citadel. But the Stygians were dragging Orca away, toward their secret base under the forest.

    Gebohq: "Yeah, whatever."

    *Gebohq grows wide-eyed as he realized that killing the dwarf meant trouble for him. He stares at disbelief as the Avenger slayed the second-in-command.*

    Gebohq: "You idiot! Do you know what you've just done?"

    Avenger: "I've just saved you from a horrible beast." He then smiles in confidence, looks at the dead dwarf, and looks back at Gebohq. "What? Was that a bad thing?"

    *The two are then surrounded by a group of dwarfs, armed with swords and bearing armour on their bodies.*

    Gebohq: "Only if you consider being surrounded by a thousand dwarfs, eager to carry out the ultimate punishment for the death of their best warrior."

    *The dwarf closest to Gebohq and the Avenger nudges them towards a darken part of the cave.*

    Gebohq: "Now the best way to help me is NOT to do anything. I have to think how I can regain their trust."

    *They walk towards their inevitable fate.*

    (Note: I really wish the Avenger character hadn't come in, but it does pose a challange to the two, so I kept it in. Just please don't solve the situation by killing all teh dwarfs or something else incredibly stupid)

    *As Gebohq and the Avenger pace to their doom, Gebohq thinks back to the fight with the Dark Child. He thinks of how he almost gave into the Dark Wizard's control, how he had actually gave totally into the dark side of the Force. He had never done that before, and hoped that he would not be faced with such a situation again, for Gebohq did not know how he came back from the Dark side. He also thought about Flamethrower, lying injured by the water. He hoped that he would heal soon, so that maybe Merlin could send him here and help them. But that was wishful thinking, Gebohq would most likely never see the sun again. But he could always hope...*

    (Hey Merlin, i noticed that you are on. I will replace this post with more story, but I wanted to know how I was doing. And if I was going in the right direction and all. Thanks. Oh, and I hope Flamethrower can come back soon, I'd like him to help me out.)

    *Gebohq and the Avenger continue to wander through the dwarf caves, which to them seems maze-like, and would not be able to find their way back out. Finally, after the long trek through the shadowy passages, they reach a grand open space, lit by torches. A huge crowd is gathered round, and the crowd gawks at the two strangers being pushed by the guards. The crowd parts as the two are guided towards the back of the hall-like area, where there lies a magnificent throne, occupied by an acient dwarf with a long, scruffy beard. Before reaching to the throne, the two strangers are stopped momentarily, and a guard removes their weapons.*

    Guard: "In case you try anything stupid. I think you two understand."

    *After being stripped of their weapons, he two are pushed again, continuing to take the final steps towards the throne.*

    Gebohq: "Avenger, don't say a word, understand? Let me do the talking."

    *But before the Avenger can respond, the guards pokes at Gebohq and the Avenger with their swords.*

    Guard: "Kneel before his majesty."

    *Gebohq kneels before the king in a friendly gesture, hoping the best out of it. The Avenger though, is shoved to his knees by the guard behind him. The crowd quiets, followed by the blare of deep trumpets. The dwarf king addresses the two strangers*

    King: "The two of you have been convicted with killing our finest warrior. Before sentencing you to death, do either of you have any final words?"

    Gebohq: "Honorable king: I know we have started on the wrong foot. A tragic death has occured, quite accidental I assure you. I was about to deliver a message to you when this simple-minded man beside me, who I am not associated with, came and killed-"

    Avenger: "Simple-minded I am not! I was saving you from that brute who was carting you off. And I thought I was your friend."

    *The crowd gasps at the obviously mistaken fool, at least in their eyes*

    Avenger: "Oops, sorry."

    *The king waves his hand towards the side of the hall, signaling the guards to take them to their sentence*

    Gebohq: "Too late for that now."

    *The crowd bottlenecks after the guards with the two strangers, eager to see a good death.*

    Merlin returned to the Bueto city. Once he reached the square Turneh meet him.

    Turneh: Merlin, he did as you said we melted the ice off of him and carried him to his room he is wrapped up in several blankets. I will take you to him.

    Merlin follows Turneh to Dragonfly's room. He sees Ping_me and Ji'tory standing near by.

    Merlin: Turneh, help me carefully remove the blankets so I can treat his wounds.

    Turneh and Merlin carefully remove the covers of the bed. Dragonfly is still severly burn, and some places are frost bitten, and he has many cuts all over his body, and his wings are burned off. Merlin takes some of the ointments and rubs them on the frost bitten areas, which begin to regain their color. Then Merlin takes a second ointment and palces it one his burns, the oinment begins to sizzle and Merlin wraps them with some of the bandages. An expression of concern appears on Turneh's face.

    Merlin (Noticing Turneh expression): Don't worry, that is suppose to happen, he won't feel it though because he is still asleep.

    Merlin now places a third oinment on the bandages and with them wraps the cuts.

    Merlin: Help me roll him over on his side so I can treat his wings.

    Turneh and Ji'tory help Merlin carefully push Dragonfly on his side. Then merlin takes two of the potions he brought and mixes them. Then he pours them mixture onto the burned part of Dragonfly's wings. Then he places the covers over Dragonfly again.

    Merlin (to Turneh): Don't worry. He will be fine. It will take a couple of hours for his wings to regenerate.

    Turneh: I will stay here. I want to watch over him.

    Merlin: As you wish. (Merlin turns to Ping_me and Ji'tory) As for everyone else, myself included, we should leave and let Dragonfly get his rest.

    Merlin, Ji'tory, and Ping_me leave the room and close the door behind them.

    Merlin (now to Ping_me and Ji'tory): I suggest you two might wish to have a look around the city. Since you may not have the chance to find yourself among the clouds again for a good while. I don't intend to leave untill Dragonfly has healed. Then all four of us will head to Fairy Ring, an area of the Northern Forest where the fariy race lives.

    --Well, Gebohq, as for is your story going in the right direction. Actually there was a very good reason why I sent everyone out to contact the different races. This allowed everyone to create their own part in the tale and place in their own struggles. This also allows the story to take alot longer too. As for how good is it. It seems to be going great. You have a good conflict going with the Avenger. I look foward to seeing how you get out of it. Also one other thing. I just wanted to point out about the undead. I didn't think of them as their own race, rather just people who were dead who were "raised" as skeletal warrior by the Dark Wizard Bazaal. The reason for this is that at the end of the tale when the Dark Wizard is defeated (if he is) the skeletons return to being dead since the are no longer supported by his magic. If they were their own race (then they would continue the battle after their master is dead.--

    *Im back*

    Bug steps through a portal into merlin's citadel wearing a Saruman Sucks T-shirt and a mickey mouse hat. Geeze, I leave for 2 days and I get drugged, attacked by a goblin army, and teleported to another universe.

    Well, I did need a vacation, and I also got this lovely T-shirt. I had to pawn my Ring of Power, but I also picked up some fireworks for merlin.

    *Drops a big box of fireworks*

    maybe we can set these off after we kick that dark wizard's butt.

    Oh, and I got a present for Dirtbag.

    *Reaches into the shadows and pulls out dirtbag by the tail*

    Bug: "Hi dirtbag"

    Dirtbag starts biting bug's hand

    Bug: "ouch stop it!!"

    Dirtbag: "How did you know I was there?"

    Bug: "No offense dirtbag, but it is kindof hard for you to hide in the shadows when someone can smell your stench a mile away"

    *Pulls out a stick of deoderent and a can of air freshener and sprays dirtbag with the air freshener*

    Bug: "Here you go, you might want to use these"

    Dirtbag grabs the 2 items, bites bug's hand, then scurries off into the darkness.

    *Bug clutching his bleeding hand* "Ungrateful little rodent!!!"

    Well, I can finally get back to my reading, I believe I was halfway through "The Fellowship of the Ring" before I got drugged.

    Bug sets his rail detonater down on the table and sits back in the easy chair in front of the fire.

    --That makes much more sense Space Orca. Thanks you for pointing that out. hmmmmmm. . . Maybe someone could even have rebel Stygians.
    Also I wanted to point out about the Misty Mountians and the Dark Forest. That isn't what they are called right now (at present they are called the Granite Mountians and the Wastern Woods.) They don't receive their new name until during the war council when the faries update our maps to the landscape changes and we rename the Mountians and Forest.--

    Merlin heads to the local records to brush up his knowledge of Bueto history.

    Meanwhile Ping_me and Ji'tory take a look around the city. Finally as the sun begins to set Ji'tory tells Ping_me she wants to watch the sun set from the up in the clouds. So they head to a house at the edge of the city and they sit at top its slightly sloped roof top watching the sun set.

    Ji'tory: Beautiful isn't it?

    Ping_me: Yes. Quite.

    For a while neither speak as they watch the sun set.

    Then Ping_me realizes Ji'tory is now not looking at the sun, but at him.

    Ping_me (still looking out at the sun and looking directly at Ji'tory): Back in Elven country, Shakana said something to me.

    Ji'tory (still looking intently at Ping_me): What did he say?

    Ping_me: He said you liked me. (At this point Ping_me wonders if this is not another one of those test of wills thing. So he now looks Ji'tory in the eyes.)

    She quickly looks away and her face reddens somewhat.

    Ji'tory (looking out at the sun again): Perhaps I do.

    Ping_me wonders if he misread her looking at him. Then he decides to go back to looking at the sun rather than press the matter further.

    The sun sets and the stars come out.

    Meanwhile Dragonfly has finished healing and now awakens to see his father Turneh stand over him with an expression of releif that he has woken up.

    --Dragonfly, this would be a really good time for you for you to take over (partially to report any experinces you might have had or dreams).--

    -- I would liek to thank you all for keeping me alive.Thanks! ?Anyways i had a lot more,but i had problems so to let this tory move ahead I am just gonna post a summary 'k?--

    Dragonfly:huh.....

    Turneh ragonfly.......good night or whatever time it is ..i have lost track.

    DRagonfly:ahhhhhhh..........Father....nice to see you here.

    Turneh:So you accept the truth?that I am your father?

    DRagonfly:I accept it but do not entirely understand.

    Turneh:Will you ever to be able to love me as a Father?

    DRagonfly:yes, but it will take time.NOt mush though since your words are right and just and I already have accepted the truth.The long rest has allowed me to remember things.....good and bad.........past and present.........and I have been able to think.

    Turneh:Ahhhhhh...yes. YOu were out for a while.what did you think about?

    Dragonfly:my life. I remembered being as a child taken from my home and raised in torture and pain in a research faicilty on wings.There great acts of torture.....all in the name of science were done on me.that is where I go these wings.....I can still remember the pain when the scientists grafted them onto my body.I remember losing my family. I found my mother once i was able to escape from the facility. We lived in peace. Then I met the woman whom I soon married. WE were deeply in love. She soon bore a son.HE was rightueos and strong even as a baby. AFter a few years though, the administrator of the facility heard of my son's birht and sent troops to apprehend him. When the troops arrived i knew nothing to do except fight back and that is what I did. Iwas able to fight them out of my house that day, but later was different. They soon cught us and brought us to the facility. I remember looking out the window of my room at the sun and stars at night with hope now with my son the hope had been replaced by sadness and dread.Horrible experiments and tortures were done on me and my family. My wife, mother, and child were all killed before my own eyes. They(my eyes)will never be the same.They let me go after that..............deciding I was too week and sadd to do anything to them. I lived in saddness fo rmany years and wandered the world. i found a temple hidden in the forest and made it my home.......years passed the leaves changed colors and so on and i was still sad...........then one day i saw a strange portal form in the temple and a perosn walked thorough it. I soon followed and here I am.ANd then i met you and my life was changed for the better. I had found hope and reason to live.Thanks

    TUrneh:I don't know what to say............*with tears*....If I had been there.,,things would be different!

    DRagonfly:No they wouldn't have! they would've*with tears* been .........worse! YOu could have done nothing. But the past does not matter! What we have is the future! Let us look ahead and live!

    Turneh:............yes

    The two embrace and they are happy.

    DRagonfly:COme we must be going, I am sure MErlin is waiting. It is time for this journey to conitnue.

    Ping and Ji'tory watched the night sky set in. The cloud cover opened up and the stars could be seen more brilliantly than on the ground. Maybe it was the magic of the place, if the Beuto were magic. But soon the owner of the house began to shout at them for standing on his roof.

    Ji'troy yawned. They walked down a lamp lighted street. They passed a lamplighter. He flew from pole to pole lighting each one as he went. down the nearly endless street in the city in the sky.

    Ji'tory's stomach rumbled. "Hey, you seem pretty well travelled know of any good places to eat around here?" She said with a coy smile.

    Ping was taken aback by the question. In the seconds that followed he thought about himself and what he was. And what followed was the fact that he hadn't told her what he was yet. Ping doesn't need food and he had forgotten that the people around him do need it.

    "Ummm, no actually. Never been here before."

    "Oh. I guess it doesn't matter anyway I didn't remember to bring any money. Do you have any?"

    "No I don't have any money on me." Ping said. But on seeing the dissapointment in her face, thought quickly. "But I do know where we can get some." She looked at him questioningly.

    Merlin sat. Not in a chair but on a mountain of books piled high to nearly the apex of the library's dome. All of them thuroughly read and piled for reaching the oldest books on the highest shelves. The Beuto had no need of ladders.

    "Merlin!" Ping_Me called. No answer.

    "Merlin!!" Ping called agin. no answer.

    Ji'tory looked at Ping and said, "OK on three. Ready... one... two.. three..."

    "MERLIN!!!!"

    "What! What!!" A hooded head peeked over the side of the monumental pile of books. Ji'tory started to laugh. Ping smiled at her and looked at Merlin.

    "We need some money. Got one of those gold bars on you?"

    "As always!" A golden speck appeared from over the side. It grew larger and larger as it came more fully into veiw. Ping_Me focused the energy needed to make his hand solid. He caught the bar as if it were nothing. Ji'tory's eyes grew to the size of hubcaps at the sight of it. Ping handed it to her and she dearly dropped to the floor with the weight of it. She looked at him.

    "Well I suppose I could have asked for smaller change..."

    The inn they checked into treated them very well, with little wonder! The best room, dinner on a balcony, the choicest wine and the best food. The table was set with the best, candlelight, and a soft breeze ushering in fresh air. Ping_Me did his best to eat. As he took in each little bit of food it was zapped and transferred into energy. Very samll bits of energy. The whole meal wouldn't have been enough to power him for a day.

    Ji'tory and Ping talked into the night. Ping revealing very little about himself in an effort not to scare her off. They talked a lot about the elven kingdom and her life there. While Ping entertained her with stories drawn from his life in the CyberNet (Leaving out the CyberNet part. that might have been a little too much for her to handle). Mostly his adventures in the cybergames rooms, rooting out kid hackers.
    Often enough he made the hackers sound like real people threatening other real people. Ping_Me noticed throughout the evening Ji'tory was becoming more jovial due to her intake of wine. Soon her whole face was flushed with red.

    Winged people were now nearly vanished from the streets, and it was quite apparent that the washing ladies had gone to bed for the night. Ji'troy simple gazed across the table at Ping_Me. Ping knew from what he's read and seen with his own eyes, that when drunk, carbon-based lifeforms could act quite out of the ordinary. QUITE out of the ordinary. That coupled with the fact of what Sakana (please leave out the H in Sakana, Merlin) told him, he knew he was in for trouble.

    Ping got up from the table and walked over to where Ji'troy was sitting. "Are you ready to go to sleep?" He said choosing his words carefully.

    "Uhh huuuh!" She said and got to her feet. She stumbled a little and fell toward Ping. Quickly making his whole body pysical, he caught her. She laughed into his robes. //Oh great.// Ping thought to himself. Whether by cricumstance or on purpose Ji'tory was unable to walk. With great hesitation Ping decided to carry her to the bedroom. She sighed as he carried her over to one of the beds. He laid her there on a patch of moonlight. He drew back the covers and tucked her in. Quickly he walked over to the other bed and sat down on it. He looked at her and he realised she was looking back.

    "Why don't you come sleep in this bed?" she said to him. Ping_Me questioned himself if there were any Gods. Her eyes looked insistantly at him. Ping_Me steeled himself and walked to her bedside. He knelt by it and took her hand. He altered his voice to the point where the sound waves became hypnotic.
    And sang a lullaby. Her eyelids dropped lower and lower. Ping waited until her breathing became even and she had gone into R.E.M. sleep.

    Ping_Me stood up and gazed out the nearby window. And breathed a sigh of relief.

    ---Okay, lets be mature. On pictures, I had thought about making sketches on the various places while this thread goes on, while i was working on Dirtbag and a picture of my character. But I might not have enough time or enough paper in my sketchbook.---

    As bug sits reading, all of a sudden something comes flying out of nowhere to smack him in the back of the head.

    "Ow!" bug mutters, getting up and doing a quick search of the floor. Bending over, he picks up a can of deoderant. "Great," he mumbles as he picks up his rail detonator. "Here ratty, ratty, ratty..."

    "It's all your fault, you know," Dirbag's voice comes from seemingly nowhere and everwhere at once. "Innocent little me comes popping through the portal, and then you take a pot shot at me. Good job."

    "Come on out," bug called. "You know you want to."

    Without warning, the can of air spray slams against bug's skull. Spinning, he fires automatically, the explosion blowing out a random wall but otherwise hitting nothing.

    "I get it, you're a coward!" bug says. "A little chicken. A little ratty chicken. Little ratty chicken!"

    "Over here, buggy-poo," comes a voice from behind him. Spinning again, bug is suprised to see that Dirtbag is actually visible out on the floor. He holds his hands up. "Here I am, big boy, take yer best shot!"

    bug shrugs. "All right." Taking quick aim, bug fires off a rail at the dirty rodent that probably looks a lot like a certain jpg file, but Dirtbag didn't move. Instead, his mouth warps, his teeth and jaw stretching madly out of proportion, and the rail disappears into the darkness of his gaping maw. His face returning to normal, the rat pats his stomach . "**** things always give me heartburn."

    bug lowers the rail detonator and looks at the rat in wonder. "Nice trick," he commented.

    Dirtbag grinned. "This one's better." Setting himself, Dirtbag belches out the rail detonator again, the projectile arcing across the room as though freshly shot from a gun.

    Diving for cover as the rail zooms over his head, bug looses sight of Dirtbag for just a moment, but when he rolled up on to his side, the rat was already gone.

    "Bang," the rat's voice echoed through the chamber. "Bang, bang, bang."

    (It took a while, but I think I've thought of a worthy monster for the two to face. But I'm not quite sure how to resolve it, just that somehow the Avenger will help out a bit, making Gebohq appreciate him more...or something like that, and maybe Flamethrower can come back, where are you flame?)

    *Gebohq and the Avenger continue to be led in the dark passages by the dwarf guards, followed by a raging crowd carrying torches. Towards the end of their journey, the passage forks in two, one going upwards and the other down. The crowd followed the path leading upwards while the guards took the two strangers down the other path. The passage taken by Gebohq and the Avenger ended with two towering wooden doors, opening towards the sides, beckoning the two into a forboding and dank area. The two were shoved beyond the doors, but before they could turn around and try to escape, the doors slammed shut, reverberating ominously throughout the cavern.*

    Avenger: "Some place. Hope our death is quick and painless."

    Gebohq: "Somehow I doubt it."

    *The two looked at their surroundings. Behind them were the doors sealed tight. In front of them was a short rock path ending in an circle. The ground they were on was like a peninsula in midair, for below them seemed to be an endless pit, to them giving an appearance of a gaping mouth. Above them, there seemed to be no ceiling, the darkness made up what distance they could see. It gave the whole cavern an illusion that the area was cone-shape, but in fact was more of a straight crevice. Up along the wall, thin slits could be seen, and safely behind the small openings were the onlooking dwarfs, ready for the beast to come feed on them. The low murmur of the crowd died, leaving an errie silence behind. The silence seemed to hold for an eternity. Then, a very low hissing sound from below them could be heard, mixed with the sound of a thousand claws tapping rock. The two looked down to see hundreds of shapes moving up the wall, black sillouettes against the dark wall.*

    Gebohq: "To the Empire..."he gasps

    *When coming out of the shadow, the two could see that a thousand black spider-like creatures the size of their head were scaling the wall. But the swarm did not act like a group, but rather one huge entity, the shape reminding Gebohq of a vorsknr, but with 6 legs, smaller and shorter in height, and where the snout would be, a gaping hole, like the snout was turned inside out. After reaching at level with Gebohq and the Avenger, the "beast" stopped.*

    Avenger: "Looks like we'll be fine. That thing won't be able to cross the gap."

    *But the Avenger spoke too soon, for the "beast" appeared to take one of its collective legs and ram it in the side of the rock wall. It then in one smooth motion pulled the leg back out with the paw grasping an uneven slab of rock, and tossed it towards their direction, forming a bridge. It then began to cross.*

    Avenger: "Wow! That thing can wield the rock like a knife through butter!"

    *The two attept to go for their weapons, but to their despair remembered that the guards took their weapons before meeting the king. They look up to see one of the dwarfs waving their weapons mockingly at them.*

    Gebohq: "If you got any bright ideas, this would be a good time as any."

    *They look upon the great beast and could only contimplate jumping into the inviting pit below...*

    (Hey, I'd love to draw some pictures for this story, and I even got a scanner. But I need to know how to post them up, exactly, because I'm stupid with computers. And how is "A Jedi's Journey" coming along?)

    --You post you picture by putting a [img] and a [/img] around the location of you picture once you've uploaded it onto the net (example of a location would be http://sever/site/areawithinsite/pic.jpg ) Remeber to put no spaces in there. Also the TC is going ok. Also by the way, I am collecting this and intent to then reedit it (cut out messages like these and parts that didn't happen and stuff at the start in the disscussion board that had no part in the story.) Put it into a section of my site called Merlin's Library and store it there for good.--

    Merlin, Ping_me, Ji'tory, Dragonfly, Turneh, and Balthazar fly low over the trees in the early morning. Turney flies on their right. Dragonfly to the left. And Balthazar with Merlin, Ping_me, and Ji'tory riding on his back, flies bettween and a little below Dragonfly and Turneh.

    Ping_me: How far to the Fairy Ring area?

    Merlin: Not much farther. Only a couple of minutes away now.

    They had been flying since dawn and it was now near noon.

    Ping_me: Good, I think Dragonfly, Turneh, and Balthazar are getting tired.

    Merlin: I think so too, but were almost there. (now to Ji'tory) I'll need your help especially in the upcoming talks with the fairies.

    Ji'tory: Why? What can I do?

    Merlin: Elves have always been on good terms to the Fairy race. More so than humans.

    Ji'tory: But I've never met a Fairy in my life!

    Merlin: That won't matter, they'll trust your word better than anyone elses just because you are an elf.

    Balthazar now decends into the forest. Merlin now leads the way. After a few minutes of walking they reach an area that is like a clearing but the trees at the edges of this clears have their branches intertwined and they create a canopy over they area. In the center there is a large circle of mushrooms. Ping_me notices a very realistic statue of to the side.

    Merlin: Here. This is the fairy ring.

    Suddnely several small lights seem to wink on as the lights come closer we see two very small figures, human in form with the addition of four translucent wings which fluttered very fast. Ji'tory stepped foward.

    Ji'tory: We come to see the king and queen of the fairies.

    1st Fairy (Who now closer gets a better look at Ji'tory): So you are an elf. Who are these people with you. I don't recgonzize their race.

    Ji'tory: I am Ji'tory. This is Dragonfly (Dragonfly bows slightly). This is Turneh of the Beuto (Turneh bows slightly). This is Ping_me (Ping_me bows). And this is Merl-

    1st Fairy (with great suprise): The Wizard Merlin! (Now the fariy becomes distrustful) What do you want?

    Ji'tory: We only wish an audience with your king and queen. Please, it is most important.

    1st Fairy: We will hear you, but we do not trust Merlin.

    Ji'tory: Merlin only means you good will.

    1st Fairy: How do we know he doesn't want our magic.

    Merlin: If I wanted to take your magic would I be asking for your help.

    The 1st Fairy pauses to think on this.

    1st Fairy: This sounds wise. But we are still wary. Come I will take yo there. I am Tsari.

    Tsari leads them into the ring of Mushrooms. Once all of them stand inside it the world seems to go out of focus, then once it comes back into focus they stand in a vast cavern filled with faires flitting here and there. Tsari leads them to a part of the cave that seems to lead up to tiny steps at the pinnicle of the steps (at eye level) there are two thrones. In the thone to the left sits a male fairy wearing a crown and in the right hand throne sites a female fairy also wearing a crown.

    Tsari: King Titan and Queen Titana I give you Ji'tory of the elves and her company, with whom travels Merlin.

    King Titan: Merlin, you must have given a very good explanation to our guard for him to have let you in. I trust you know the extent of our magic and what our retaliation would be on any attack.

    Merlin: I do.

    Ji'tory: This is why we need your help. A Dark Wizard from Merlin's home realm threatens this one. He, all of us, wish to save this world. Will you help us?

    King Titan: I have felt evil begin to affect this world. But though you look an honorable elf, we do not trust Merlin. We will not commit any of our people to help you fight.

    Ji'tory begins to speak again but Merlin cuts her off.

    Merlin: If you will not help us by sending your people I need a bit of some magic stone you have to defend us from the Dark Wizard's fireball attacks. It is called Moonstone.

    King Titan: We will give at least that. You can use it only once. After that it looses its power. (he pauses) One more thing Merlin. Evil has covered the moutians and forest sourounding the Dark Ones castle. The Mountians are now covered in thick misty and the woods have gone dead as though burned by a great fire. We have given these lands new names. Misty Mountians and the Dark Forest. Tread lightly there Merlin. For the Dark One will be ready.

    Tsari brings a palm sized stone which is shiny and black as obsidian and gives it to Merlin.

    King Titan: Perhaps when and if you defeat the Dark One the relationship bettween our races will be more open. But untill they we will not trust any of you. Good bye.

    With that the room went out of focus, once it came back in focus they again stood in the middle of the ring of mushrooms. Merlin again lead the way and they were soon air born again and returning to the citadel to pick up Space Orca and Afarassa before they all headed off the the continet where the humans lived, the most distant and last race to visit before the war council. As Balthazar lifted into the air Dragonfly turned to Merlin.

    Dragonfly: Merlin, why did you put up with that from those little people.

    Merlin: Did you see the statue in the clearing?

    Dragonfly: Yes. Why?

    Merlin: I have no doubt that is it some unfourtunate person who assumed just that too. Don't underestimate a Fariy by its size, they can be lethal. I only know of a few things more dangerous, The Dark Wizard being one of them. You must not judge them too harshly. They are very fearfull of other races because of what happened in the first war. Now they only wish to be left alone.

    Merlin, Dragonfly, Turneh, Ping_me, Ji'tory, and Balthazar head back to the citadel.

    "Ping?"

    Ping_Me's thoughts were distant untill he heard Ji'tory's voice. He was thinking about the battle ahead, and whatever lay in store for them. Ping noticed her looking at him. But as he brought his eyes up to meet hers she looked away.

    "I..... I, want to apologize.... for the way I acted the other night. And thank you..... for not taking advantage of me...."

    Ping sat in full awareness of the fact that he couldn't take advantage of her. He also knew due to the events of that night that he couldn't hide what he was much longer.

    ".... I tried to seduce you..... that was inexcuseable....." she went on her face covered in shame. "I hope that you can forgive my actions..."

    "Of course!" Ping said.

    "huh?"

    "You're not at fault. You did me no wrong that I know of. I knew your condition, it's only natural to have that kind of reaction to alcohol. Your thoughts get fuzzy and you can't think straight. You only see perceptions of yourself and other people. You should probably forgive me for the use of hypnotics against your will."

    "Hyp... what?"

    //doh// "Uhhh..... nevermind."

    She kept looking away for awhile. Minutes later she looked back at him. she blushed and smiled at him. "You." she said still smiling happily.

    Ping smiled back. //Geez, she looking at me like that agian. What does she want from me?//

    Balthazar lands back at Merlin's Citadel. Merlin now notices Space Orca isn't there.

    Merlin: Afarassa, where is Orca?

    Afarassa: He went to find something called Goliath Berries. But he hasn't returned yet.

    Merlin: I bet he's been captured by the Goliath giants by now. Come, all of you, you to bug. Afarassa stay here in case Orca returns. We may not be back for a few days as we go to meet the last race we need to contact, the humans.

    Merlin now strides over to a near by shadow and picks up Dirtbag by his tail.

    Dirtbag: AHHHHHHHHH! Put me down!

    Merlin walks over to the opening where Balthazar sits at the edge of the citadel and promptly, yet with careful aim, throws Dirtbag out the entrance. Dirtbag falls from the mountian screaming and lands safely and unharmed (except for his dignity) in the bushes at the mountians base.

    Now Ping_me, Ji'tory, Merlin, and Bug climb onto Balthazar's back.

    After about an 15 minutes of flight they arrive at the area around the mountians. Balthazar flies in low and hovers with out landing.

    Merlin (from Balthazar's back): Goliaths. Hear me. You have caputured one of our friends. We want him back. He only came here beliveing your berries could heal his friend.

    One of the Goliaths: W-E D-O N-O-T C-A-R-E W-H-A-T H-E N-E-E-D-E-D I-T F-O-R! W-E D-O N-O-T H-A-V-E H-I-M. T-H-E S-T-Y-G-I-A-N-S T-O-O-K H-I-M. B-U-T N-O-W W-E W-I-L-L D-E-S-T-R-O-Y Y-O-U!

    Merlin: I think not.

    The nearest Goliath swings his club at Balthazar.

    Merlin: Now Balthazar!

    Balthazar pulls back some just beyond the arc of the giants swing. Then the dragon breathed fire onto the giants club. The goliath now realizing his club was on fire begins swinging it about accidently bashing his fellow Goliaths over the head in the process!

    Merlin: Balthazar get us out of here.

    The Dragon turns and flies to the west away from the Goliaths.

    Ping_me: What about Space Orca?

    Merlin: If he's been captured by the Stygians he is undoubtably already a prisoner at the Dark Wizard's Castle. We can't rescue him from there on our own. We will have to wait until the attack to do that. Keep this course to the West, Balthazar. It will take a little over the rest of this day travel to reach the edge of this continet.

    Some hours later after flying over seemingly miles and miles of forest the sun begins to set and Balthazar lands into a clearing in the woods only a few minutes walk from the channel dividing the two continents and they set up camp.

    The stars shown brightly over head. Merlin sat gazing at the fire. Nearby Ping_me sits Ping_me and Ji'tory. Near the fire Bug is asleep too. Turneh and Dragonfly stand watch and talk with each other softly. Nearby Balthazar lays sleeping in the forest.

    Merlin (to Ping_me and Ji'tory): We won't be able to take Balthzar onto the smaller continet where the humans live. They might feel him a threat. I will send a message to the ferryman across the channel to come over and ferry us across in the morning.
    We best all get some sleep it will be a long journey ahead.

    Merlin lies down next to the fire and quickly falls into a deep sleep.

    But it was not so. Instead, Orca woke up with his head throbbing in some kind of a dark cellar. He could hear creaky, mystical voices overhead that obviously belonged to Stygians. A skeleton dressed in fancy red robes decended the stairs toward Orca. "What do you want?" Orca demanded, reaching toward his waist instinctivly and finding his Lightsaber still there. Orca drew it and assumed an defensive posture. The Stygian cackled "Do not be so afraid, Space-Orca. We will not kill you. You will be our weapon to get away." "Away from what?" Space Orca asked skepticlly. "Away from the dark wizard's grasp of course!" the Stygian rasped from his non-existant throat. "Then you realize the evils of the great dark wizard?" the Stygian nodded. "We are kept with him under force. Some Stygians are truly loyal to him, but some are not. We allied with him in hopes of stalling." Orca puzzeled this for a minute, then responded "If you wish to join the wizard Merlin, me, and his allies in defeating the Dark Wizard, simply elect a representitive to send to the war council." The skelton's face showed surprised, at least in the way skeletons do. "Wizard-Merlin? Help Wizard-Merlin?" the skelton ruler questioned. Orca, impatient with this by now said "Yeah, or your going to find yourself a dead undead under the Dark Wizard's oppresive boot." the Stygian again paused. "Then we shall help. I have only one condition: I myself wish to be the representitive of the war council." "Fine" Orca said. The two, along with a large escort, moved out of the building. "I forgot to ask, what is your name?" Orca questioned the Stygian representitive. "Master-Dead-Man" said the Stygian in response. "Makes sense. Can I just call you Master Dead?" Orca responded. The skeleton looked surprised. "If you wish. Our culture always uses full names, but I am fine if you wish to use what you call a nick-name." The large group continued in silence for a bit. Then they saw something upahead. "A patrol of Death Demons, working for the Dark Lord!" Orca cried, turning his lightsaber on with a hiss, then charging at the eight firey beings. "Come back!" The Stygian yelled, but it was too late. Orca's saber slashed through the first one, and with a unearthly howl, it disappeared. The other demons drew back, extending their firey arms to strike at Orca. Orca dodged and blocked, slicing through several more demons. But even more were coming. Orca was surrounded by hundreds of Death Demons. Their fire radiated around them, backing Orca into a tiny space. And then, suddenly, they all drew back, howling. The Ice Pheonix dived from above, howling as it went, slicing through the ranks of demons, sending them all back to the vile land from which they came. Orca realized that he must have accidentally called the Ice Pheonix in. "Pheonix, I'd like you to fly me and that red-cloaked Stygian Master-Dead-Man to the Citadel. Then go back into resting. We don't want the dark wizard taking over your mind again." The Ice Pheonix nodded, then grabbed Orca and Master-Dead-Man with its talons and swung them onto its back. Then the Ice Pheonix was away.
    Hours later, Orca and Master-Dead-Man arrived at the Citadel to find it deserted. The Ice Pheonix went back up to its resting place, but Orca still sensed life around. Arfrasa stepped out and pointed a spear at the Stygian. "Hes friendly" Orca said. "Good" Arfrasa responded, still eying the Stygian suspiciously.

    Hey, can I ask a big favor Merlin? Can you also do the same thing that your doing with this story with the "Nostradomous...Scary Stuff here" started by GA Farret and "The neverending story thread", which is a continuation of the first started by Ares. I'd like to see it have a home, but I don't know how you plan to copy this story, so it might be a lot of work, and if so, I understand if you don't. And I'm still thinking how to resolve my part of the story(I can do it, I just have to think of something good, and I hope it to be a surprise). Maybe if they ever get the chat room up we could talk there Merlin. Do you have AOL Instant Messanger? If so, just contact me with that, my name on that is Gebohq. One last thing: you said that the dwarfs lived in the Misty mountains. Does that mean that they live right by the Dark One? If so, I just wanted to keep that in mind. Now time to think of a good end to my tale, and then my character can join yours and invade the castle(at least that's what I think your gonna do, right?)

    Bug wakes up next to the fire which has burned down to glowing embers.

    What the hell am I doing here? I don't go around invading castles! Merl, didn't even explain what was going on. He just walked in and pushed me out the door. "Hop on the dragon" he said. "we have to go rescue space orca".

    Looking around Bug suddenly realizes that he left his rail detonater on the table back in merl's castle.

    "Oh crap, now I don't even have a weapon! That's it im going back!"

    Bug leaves the party lying by the fire and heads off into the woods to find merlin's dragon.

    He finds the dragon lying curled up, and snoring softly. Wisps of smoke rise from his nostrels every time he breaths.

    Bug picks up a stick and starts poking the dragon in the eye. "Hey Mr. dragon, wake up, time to rise and shine. wake up time."

    The dragon blinks a few times, and looks over at bug.

    Dragon: "Bug, do you want some advice? Never wake a sleeping dragon."

    Bug: "why not?"

    Dragon: "do you like getting eaten?"

    Bug: "um, not really. May I ask a favor of you?"

    Dragon: "you can ask it."

    Bug: "will you fly be back to merlin's castle?"

    The dragon coughs, setting several trees and bushes on fire.

    Dragon: "I've spent the whole day flying carrying a bunch of people on my back, I settle down to get a good nights sleep, and I get waken up after a few hours by some jerk poking me in the eye. Next thing I know he wants me to get up and fly him back to where he came from in the middle of the night!!!!"

    Bug: "yeah, that's about right."

    The dragon glares at bug. Little flames shoot out it's mouth as it breaths heavly.

    Bug: "actually if you look at it, this is all really merlin's fault. He dragged out before I had a chance to pick up my rail detonater. You can blame him. Besides, he won't be needing you for a while"

    The dragon considers this, "Oh well, merl has been getting on my nerves recently, 'Fly me here', 'Fly me there', It would be nice for him to walk for a change"

    Bug climbs up on the dragon's back and the two of them head off in the night

    *Back at the Misty Mountains, deep within the dwarf stronghold, Gebohq and the Avenger are faced with the "beast", a single entity made up of many black spider-like creatures intertwined toghether. gebohq and the Avenger are weaponless, left to contimplate suicide. The "beast" advances towards them. Gebohq is walking to the edge of the platform they are on, ready to jump and end what misery may come.*

    Avenger: "Wait! There must be SOMETHING we can do."

    Gebohq: "Like what? Reason with it?"he says in a sarcastic tone

    Avenger: "Can't you use the Force to kill it?"

    Gebohq: "Last time I did that, I almost turned to the Dark side, not to mentioned almost controlled by the Dark Wizard. But maybe if I use it in small bursts..."

    *Gebohq lifts the rock debris made by the makeshift bridge the beast had made and launched the rock pieces towards his foe. But the rocks only damaged one of the spider creatures, where the spider was tehn rejected from teh body like a defected cell. The rest of the spiders contorted their collective body to soften the impact of the rocks, then the beast moved the pieces of rock throughout its body until they reached one of its legs, where it then threw the pieces back at Gebohq.*

    Gebohq: "It's no use, the debris doesn't have enough effect on it. I don't want to die like this, I'm making sure it can't find me before I jump"

    *Gebohq transforms himself to look like one of the pieces of rock, then prepares again to jump off the platform*

    Avenger: "You can change your shape?"

    Gebohq: "Yes, but what good will that do? I can only transform into one form, I can't turn into a thousand spiders, even if they act as one being."

    Avenger: "You won't have to, I got an idea. Quick, I must tell you quick!"

    *Gebohq stops where he is, and the Avenger moves towards him, though looking at the beast to make sure it does not notice Gebohq. The Avenger then wispers teh plan to Gebohq. He then moves away from Gebohq, waving his arms wildly at the beast.*

    Avenger: "Come get me you overgrown excuse for a vorsknr."

    *The beast shifts its body to confront the Avenger. While the beast is distracted, Gebohq, still appearing as a piece of rock, creeps over behind the beast. Gebohq then touches the dead spider creature detached from the body of the beast, transforming to mirror the appearance of the once dead spider creature. Gebohq then crawls into the beast's body, the beast accepting Gebohq as part of itself. It continues to try to attack the Avenger, but the Avenger dodges each of its attack.*

    Avenger: "Hurry Gebohq, I don't know how long I can keep this up."

    *Gebohq then starts to attack the individual spiders like a cancerous cell. Before the beast can notice a forign part inside it and react, Gebohq destroys all but one spider creature. Gebohq then transform back into his original state. Knowing itself at a disadvantage, the spider crosses the bridge and scurries back down the bottomless pit.*

    Avenger: "Woohoo! We did it!"

    Gebohq: "Don't celebrate just yet, look up."

    *The dwarfs that were looking through the openings in the wall were now outraged. The guards opened the doors with orders to kill the two immediately. Gebohq and the Avenger prepare to fight when the guards and the crowd divert their attention to the passages they came through. Quick footsteps could be heard, and when the being comes in view, it appears to be a humanoid. The crowd murmurs at the new stranger.*

    Gebohq: "Flamethrower!"

    To be continued...
