Recap of our 2 part event(Submiited to Zatozia at SoE, she is doing a feature on it I believe)


The Vertically Challenged have just completed a 2 part Epic Story/Event.
I will now introduce you to some key players of this 2 nigth event. If you are new to the VC or have never heard of us, this will

help you follow the story:

Bloodfang: An Erudite Shadow Knight. The first true enemy to declare himself against the vertically Challenged. Our first

encounter with him was June 2nd, 2004, when he made his presence known. He kidnapped our guild Master Davlannan, and held

him in the pit of Runnyeye. The VC battled him all night, to no avail. At times they appeared to have him beaten, only to be

destroyed by him. Davlannan was not rescued. In the following weeks, Davlannan managed to escape. Bloodfanh has harrassed

the VC off and on for the last 2 years, his end has come in this [sign in to see URL] has it?

Davendithas: Was a strong member of the Vertically Challenged. He was a Gnomish Wizard of great power, but he wanted

more. He studied ways to harness powers greater than your seasons, and thought he could control it. Through a session of

gambling with some shady individuals, he came into possesion of something he had no right having. Thinking he was strong

enough, he released the Essenece of Burning Clash, hoping to harness it's power despite only being of the 20th season. It

would not enter him, and it bound itself to his hands. The VC searched desperately to find a solution to this problem, but as

the Essence grew stronger, and all their efforts came to naught, Davendithas knew there was one solution alone. To jump into

the lava flowing through the dam in Klik-Anon. This ended Davendithas, no spiritmaster could bring him back. But he did not

die. His power flourished in this Beyond. He grew in strength, and darkness grew in him. He reached back to our world and

assisted many of our enemies.

On to the tale at hand......

Guild Master Davlannan had called for an assembly of as many Vertically Challenged as would muster. He spoke of visions and

dreams. Of being visited by Tunare herself, and that he had failed in his vision of the Vertically Challenged; that the Gods had

intended it to be more. Davlannan told how the Elves were meant to battle along side the VC, and they were instead harrassed

and turned away, in a most unkind manner the Ranger Chancce would agree. Forgiveness of the Elves is up to them, but as a

manner of offering an apology, they were given a quest. I was taken hostage, and placed in the vile fortress that is Mu Lins

Reach. The vile Bloodfang had abducted me and set me there.
The Vertically Challenged showed up in force, from the 8th season to the 20th, they were there to save me. Battling to the

upper reaches of Mu Lins is no walk in the park for the VC, but triumph they did. I was rescued. I told them of the vision

Tunare had given me, that the VC were to meet where Davendithas had fallen. To drained from my ordeal, I could not go on

with them, but I vowed to be ready for future battles.
The Vertically Challenged met atop the dam in Klik-Anon, and were greeted by an unexpected visitor. Voiceavatar, the Avatar

Tunare chose to speak to us through. She explained about Davendithas helping our enemies here, and how Bloodfang was no

more than a host for a true evil. She explained that Davlannan was probably there now, trying to spare the VC from the fight,

and trying to draw out this new enemy that had consumed the poor excuse for a soul that was Bloodfang. With a wonderous

blessing of Tunare given to them by Voiceavatar, he VC raced to the Runnyeye Citadel.
Inside they found Bloodfang and Davlannan engaged in combat, and it did not bode well for our Master. Bloodfang taunted him

and mocked him, knowing he could land the finishing blow at any moment. Then Davlannan was gone, simply vanished. In a

moment he returned with a steel in his voice like never before. Davlannan called out the evil within Bloodfang, and blasted him

with an energy from some unknown depths. This feat was too draining on him, and he faded away once again.
Treuhaet made himself known. That he was growing in strength within Bloodfang, and that he had intended to destroy the

Vertically Challenged by himself. He was not yet at full power, but he was willing to destroy us now rather than wait. At that

moment Voiceavatar appeared, and blessed the room with Tunare's love. She commanded Truehaet to stay his hand. She then

informed us that the last error Davlannan had made, in trying to understand the vision from the Gods, was that the VC were to

stop at the 25th season, not the 20th. She banished Treuhaet to his darkness, telling him to finish his growth in evil, that in 2

weeks the VC would meet him on the field of battle. If they failed, the VC would be ended. He laughed a laugh that chilled all

present to their very cores.
A week later Voiceavatar made known to us where the combat would take place, to the West of Melton across the river, our

enemy would meet us. We trained, and readied ourselves for the fight of a life time.
The fateful night came, our nerves fraught with tension, our blades honed to a deadly sharpness.
We crossed the river seeking our adversary. He was no where to be found, a coward we [sign in to see URL] wrong we were.
In an instant he made himself known, showing us his true form, that of a giant Minotaur! Impressed we had not fled and hid,

he challenegd us. We charged him, ready to show him the true strength of the Vertically Challenged! In a flash of light, half of

us were felled, and in another flash the remainder dropped. Never ones to faulter, we charged back across the river with

more determination than ever. We crashed upon him like waves on the shore, only to be tossed aside like fly to an elephant.

With a renewed vengeance we assaulted him again, and he was gone, only to come back angrier than before. For a moment, our

will was failing, our blows caused no harm, and we could see him grin. We rallied, knowing we could not [sign in to see URL] then it

happened. He was sustaining damage! With lightened hearts we pressed inward, closing the circle around, and he ran, trying to

get away. But there was no where to turn, everywhere he tunred, the Vertically Challenged stood their ground and blocked his

escape. In a dying yell, he screamed his disbelief that we had defeated him. Vanquished, he disappeared, we can only hope

forever.
A fine victory for the Vertically Challenged. And to honor those that fought in this Epic Battle, I give you our roll call for the

evening:
Bamboozle, Bandila, Boneguard, Celticmoon, Dearme, Drubrew, Gnellie, Gnowon, Goodcop, Groovy, Kayastorm, Kazzy,

Peatfinger, Petite, Pieman, Profkaboom, Specialed, Violette, Warchicken, and Zapittoya.
Lest we forget a spot of honor for the [sign in to see URL] you Sapphyra for playing the role of Treuhaet!
We stood strong in the face of our greatest challenge, and we triumphed.

If any of this sounds fun to you, look us up some Friday on Diren Hold. We'd love to have you join in our good times, just don't

be shocked when you forget about your main character for a month or two at a time emoticon

That was extremely exciting and cool that our Dev created and played an epic mob just for the VC event. I always wondered if she had an incognito toon in the VC...

I know I asked her a time or two and she would only say that she couldn't say yes, but that we sounded like a lot of fun...
