DraconicQuest III: Shadow of the Dusk
« on: July 19, 2011, 01:07:41 pm »

I was planning to do this for the entire time I was away. I was originally writing a book several months ago, but I took a break from it and can't get back into it. I already have most of the plot planned out, so I figured I'm never going to continue it anyway, and that you deserve a story that's actually been thought out in advance. This'll be way easier for me than the other two, since I know most of what should happen. The only difficulty is that there were some important segments with other characters only, but I can work that out. The main character already has a personality, but don't feel you need to act in any specific way. At the same time, he's rather snarky, so don't think you have to act too seriously.

Chapter One: Escape
You regard your surroundings again, your vision blurred, your memories hazy. Your movement is restricted, and you're acutely aware of the seething pain all through your body. You're used to it, but it makes concentration difficult.

I knew you had a lot of time to yourself to think about things.

"Am I tied down again? I haven't come to expect much more. Alright, I'm up! Start the show..."

You hear a low, growling voice. You vaguely recall that you greatly dislike the source of it.
"Urgh... It's up. I was enjoying the quiet without this... thing running its mouth..."

"I was enjoying being unconscious more. Tell me, did you get over being a total dick while I was asleep?"

"Do you want me to throttle you?"

You hear another voice, a young man.
"I'm sure he'd find that very amusing, Dreadfang."

You hear a sniffing noise, followed by Dreadfang growling.

"...I smell new blood..."

"Nonsense!" The young man mutters. "They wouldn't stick somebody else in here. It's already pretty cramped, and I'm already surprised that our friend here doesn't have a cell to himself."

"It's probably a form of slow torture. I bet they'll throw two more in here after that just for shits and giggles."

"Uh... Just me... I think..."
It's a younger man, probably a teenager. His voice sounds oddly familiar, but you've got no idea where from.

Another voice is heard, a girl, probably the same age.
"Another human? YES! I mean, not that you're the only other human, but the others aren't really great to talk to."

You hear another voice, an old man screaming incomprehensibly.

"...Not human? What?"

You still can't see a lot, and you think the room is dark. You think you're humanoid, however.

You hear somebody smack the old man, and he shuts up.

"About time..." the girl mutters. "So, new guy. Where're you from?"

"Asatar," he shrugs. "Where am I now?"

There's a long silence.

Nobody seems to pay any attention to you. Dreadfang makes a low growling noise towards the boy.

"...Repeat what you just said, ghoul..."

There's another silence.

You vaguely recall the city being destroyed several years ago, and every living thing in it being horribly killed, or worse. In fact, you're the one who caused i- On second thoughts, you should probably keep your mouth shut about that last part.
