Blacken is a malevolent Minion
In the autumn of Era XXI, Blacken has acquired a horse that he is pretty proud of:

[The White Forest] The Cross (Private/Lua Gil'dae)

Quote:
Horse was a good horse, though, patient and understanding with the boy's lack of skill. He had meant to give him a great name, out of gratitude, but then decided that "Babieca" simply had to many syllables. Horse would have to remain Horse for now.

[North Harbour's End] A Pirate without a Ship is like a Cabbit with no Fluff

My oldest thread on the board just finished!


Now, I am going to wait until the Xet thread has ended as well, before I pick up a new tale for Blacken to tell: In the beginning, I started many stories, most of which were simply discontinued. For the future, I'll be happy to post less, but at the same time to really pull through with the tales I want to tell with my character.

Note: Given that Alexis has been stripped of his Imperial rank, I think this might mean that Blacken gradually returns to poverty, depending on how the Xet thread plays out.

Also, must list the Xet loot, when I am less busy.


Depending on how things play out, I'd rather like to take the character to a maritime setting, to Prime, or back to Imperia; Prime seems to be the most likely choice, right now, because it gets a fairly reasonable amount of traffic. - Also, can't really play "Aelyria", and never really go there, right?

As the Xet thread seems to have died down, I took the liberty of advancing Blacken into the next annual quarter, and detailing the time gap in between his entrance to Paxia, and his re-entry into other ongoing adventures in a way that made sense to me.

Not sure where I'll head next, though.

Removing the Wealth table from the charsheet, given that I never use it.

...Perhaps it will serve me later on, though.

More updates!

Mainly, Blacken's transition - at least for now - to the eastern part of the empire is complete.

Being honest - almost was about to call it quits, as I see how traffic on the boards in general is decreasing. But then, at the same time, I want to see the more famous locations of the game's world, even as it seems as if that world will end up considerably sized down.

So, here's to more adventures!

From the Castellian Keep adventures:

”Mercenaries of Iron” (Secret Achievement) unlocked.


Let's see what this brings him.

(Mental note: Gotta update the charsheets once the current thread "All Roads Lead to Castellian Keep" is over. Lots and lots of news for Aelyria's proud Shadowspawn.)

By the way, I'll have to take an extended break from Aelyria, come autumn.

You might know that I am the guy behind this game:

Well, it's getting some sort of a sequel, and that cuts into my time, at least during the upstart phase of the game.

That doesn't mean that I will forever retire from Aelyria, all to the contrary: Once the other game is up on its feet, Blacken will likely return.

Yay, more shaping of the character through the adventure in Enamoria!

That new project of mine - it's shaping up, and fairly nicely.

Blacken in his second/third year in the East, after being knighted by Alexis.




Daryun, of the Arslan Senki series of novels and comic books might well become his long-term model: A bit "Jimmy the Hand", a bit "Shadowspawn", but on the long term, he might just grow more into the archetypical "dark knight" role.

I am already writing him with a sort of endgame in mind - because, at least for next autumn and winter, I have to focus on the Meleon project. After that, though, as I wrote above, I still fully intend to make a return.

Woot! Woot!

”Was ...was that it?” Secret Achievement Unlocked by Rhystlin, Calaban, Martellus, and Blacken. They will earn additional loot if they survive.

Hiho,

As I announced earlier this year, I'm taking a break from Aelyria to focus on my own project, Meleon. (No cheap plug, just so you know what I do, from one gamer to another.)

I am leaving purely because of time constraints, not because I would not enjoy my time in Aelyria any more. - And, though I'm not sure when I will return, you can be sure that I will, eventually. Even if it might take a while.

Thank you all, but especially Shalafi, Alexis, Lyr, and Straylor! It's been great fun, and, as I said, I hope this is not our last farewell!

I'll keep around until the Castellian Keep adventure ends, one way or another, so that's why I'm resisting the urge to write an epilogue for my character just now. Who knows what still might or might not happen?! - But once that last heroic deed is done, Blacken will decide to take a well-deserved vacation.

Actually, thinking about it, Blacken the Hapless has come a long way:

Bestowed with a knightly title, and rich through his rather immoral, yet month-long excursions into the ruins of Paxia, the former thief, who once arrived in Imperia too poor to even buy a bread, will likely never have to return to his life of near-absolute poverty. In all likelihood, he, the Kemite who is used to destruction and anarchy, will return to his secret lair in Millswick. Grumpy and quick to irritate, as he is, he is not entirely antisocial. In all likelihood, he will take a few servants with him, whoever is valiant enough to follow him. Maybe, he might even take an apprentice, or two, continuing the line of Aelyrian Shadowspawn into a fourth generation.

Maybe, he will even make the rounds for Prime, and look for some of his friends to accompany him.
Maybe, he will even lobby his contacts at court to send a small military force with him, to seriously pose a challenge against the hated bugs.

Maybe, he even might take a longer route than would normal, and return to Newhaven. Maybe, he'll ask if a certain dancer is still around.
Maybe he will even leave a small note for her, and money. And tell her to come.

Either way, once he has finished his business in the East, Blacken will saddle Babieca for a long journey, one final time.
And ride West. To his home... And to new adventures!


Goodbye, folks, and take care!

Yours,

Rafe
