Returning members if your name is different from the other site tell me so i can correct.



The King of Dragons clan goes back for over five thousand years, when the dragons inhabiting the face of the planet were still great and intelligent beings, an elder race in all its glory. A great battle had been fought against evil and the dragons and their allies had come out as the victors, having crushed the demon armies. Now that a great threat to peace had been destroyed, the dragons directed their attention to the future. Of course, much of their efforts went to ensuring that the near future would be a peaceful and careless one, yet they began to concentrate on the distant future as well. They knew that their victory today would not last for eternity and that evil would make its comeback over time, thus they tried to foresee when the next great threat to life itself would arise.

They found out that the next great evil would arise over a rough five thousand years, in a time and age where dragons were but a fraction of the great creatures they once were, in a time when the Draconian Coalition would have broken down to nothing. The dragons in that time would not be able to hold back the dark overlord that would emerge from the depths of the netherworld, leading his corrupt army. Thus it was decided that the souls of the five greatest dragon generals would be placed into soul stones to await the evil times to come. When those time would be upon them, the dragons would be restored to their bodies and reform the Draconian Coalition to fight the evil forces once more.

The five dragons were chosen soon enough, every single one of them honoured that they had been elected for this important task. But soul stones are valuable and attract all kinds of evil beings for such stones contain great power as well. It wa clear that the stones would need to be protected at all times, through the decades until the souls were to be given a body again. The most likely Council faction to be chosen were the dragoons, the forefathers of the Kings of Dragons clan. They were raised around dragons, fought, died, and live with them and therefore deserved it the most. But that was not the only reason, for they were also the strongest and most experience warriors of the time, they were trained in weapons, the elements, as well as in battle, they were masters of the air, ground, and sea, they were and the best choice to guard the soul stones.

There was only one problem, the dragoons were the companions and riders of dragons and therefore lived wherever their dragons lived, thus they had no base to keep and guard the stones. But Katal, one of the dwarven allies and third in command of the dwarven people only out ranked by the king and queen, had a proposition. Since the dwarves were the greatest builders, he offered to build a grand fortress, one the dragoons would have to guard till the time would come when the dragon souls were to be reinstated.

So it began, the Dwarves made the Fortress high in the mountains near the dragons nesting ground and close to the caves. The fortress was near impenetrable to everyone or thing, even magic would not be able to penetrate the keeps walls and no one would be able to teleport in or out. The dragon soul stones were each put in a separate vault in the deepest part of the fortress. The most revered and strongest of the dragons, SilverStrike, was put in the deepest and hardest vault to get into, his brethren put into vaults next to his ...

About five hundred years ago, the newest leader of the Dragoons was a black dragon rider named Kairnas. He wasn't exactly evil but he wasn't good either. He had to obtain what he wanted and once his mind was set on something, he would get it too. At that moment it was to be the king of all dragons which he wanted the most for most dragoons, now humans, thought that they deserved to be the kings of mere beasts, as in the past forty-five hundred years dragons had become weaker and more bestial in nature, though they were still as intelligent. Kairnas and his followers went on a campaign and eventually became kings of the dragons indeed. But in the process they had weakened and decimated the dragon population. As a result, all but a few of the current dragoons were stripped of title by the other still existing Draconian Council factions (Dragoons, Elves, Dwarves, Humans, and the mixed races making up the several species) and they were no longer dragoons. But the banned dragoons banded together and started a clan and named themselves the kings of dragons. The other factions scoffed at this, but they couldn't do much as the KOD still held the soul stones and they had to be preserved at all costs. So the fractions were hostile but polite to them.

Over time though, the faction waned non the less, until that is Nesuke reformed them, be it with less good intentions. The other factions kept a close eye on the new and reformed King of Dragons clan, frowning at their evil actions. Yet it seemed the knowledge of the dragon soul stones had been lost to the KoD, but they still inhabited the keep, thus still protecting the stones, be it unknowingly. Over time though, the clan renounced its evil ways and became a force of good, yet they wished to remain neutral in most conflicts. Business went on as usual as leaders changed through the years. Nesuke was replaced by Kronox, Kronox was replaced by Blankwindow. Under the leadership of this great lightning master, the existance of the dragon soul stones was revealed once more and now the KoD took it upon then once more to keep these stones safe. Yet Blankwindow had to leave the clan as wel and now this heavy burden fell to Ingold ...

Eventually when Blankwindow returned form his Journey. He found that Ingold had other duties to attend to and so Blankwindow accepted the position as Bahumat again.

OOC: Name change from CallistoX to Callisto

IC: *Callisto walked into the great hall of the Kings of Dragons, admiring the greatness of the palace.*

What kind of attack would be able to take this fortress? It's so strategically placed...it's perfect.

"Great place Blank, I think I'll be here a while."

*Callisto then left to retire to his quarters where he would be in study over his spells and be ready to recieve summons from the clan if ever he was needed. Every army could use a samurai in Callisto's opinion.*

"It's not any different as it was when I was leader you know. Anyway, Blankwindow, do you want the training dojo reinstated, it will take me some time to create the virtual planes, but it should be done easily enough?"

Ingold had once more taking his position in a dark corner, his black cloak concealing him within the black void. Of course, his voice gave away his position, but that's besides the point.

5th September 2004, 05:41 AM
Liam stepped in through the large doors

"Greetings Blankwindow!"

Liam bowed down low infront of blankwindow, then he walked over to a table and pulled out a book from his bag, he then sat down and started to read.

fatbreadstick
5th September 2004, 11:17 AM
A cloaked man appeared at the castle walls. As he took his cloak off, you could see his flames, in the shape of a human. He was a Pyrah. He made a light remark in a care free voice.

"Rakoth, can we have our little spar out here? It's so nice."

Phoenix Ash
5th September 2004, 12:50 PM
DragonsPhyre stepped into the room from a door opposite the main ones.

"Hello, everybody."

He straightened his blue robe, and looked around as if he had lsot something. "Has anyone seen my dragon, Lunaris?"

Blankwindow
5th September 2004, 10:23 PM
Blankwnidow nodded to everyone and then answered the questions. He smirked at callisto even though he knew that callisto was only being sarcastic.



"Ingold if you have the time and the people for students then yes recreate the training zone. And no Dp I haven't"



OOC: When Rakoth is back and is ready for the spar fat I'll make the thread.

Also Rakother my training thread is open.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Suddenly A bright Amber dragon obviously of Blankwindow Creation burst into the room. NOt but an arrow after Blankwindow had left.

"Blankwindow is calling for all KOD members. Dragon eggs are being stole and given to a kingdom to be used as cavalry. Two dragons are already dead nad seventeen red dragon eggs of various breeds have alreayd been taken."

As the summoned dragon finished his messase his body dissapeared into a portal (http://www.giveupalready.com/showthread.php?t=160) to the location of Blankwindow.

Tarukai
6th September 2004, 10:51 AM
Tarukai walked in, and saw some of the clan there.

"Hello. Is the entire clan not quite here yet?"

He said, standing ready.

Blankwindow
6th September 2004, 11:49 AM
OOC: My character is elsewhere in a quest so using a guard. Umm who are you?

A guard stepped up.

"Blankwindow and the pyrah are out helping with an injustice against dragons. The portal (http://www.giveupalready.com/showthread.php?t=160) is still open if you can join. The others are eithe rin their rooms or still getting here."

fatbreadstick
6th September 2004, 12:15 PM
OOC: I think the quest should end soon so that this Dalamar guy will make an appearance... Charnels waiting until it's done.

IC: There was a puff of smoke outside of the castle, and the Pyrah appeared infront of the guards... the same guards who tried to freeze him. He rolled his eyes and thought Crap. Not these guys again...

"Hi guys. Let's uh... put the past behind us or something. I don't want to be covered in water again... and uh... let me through please..."

The Pyrah attemted to brush past a guard, but one knocked into his shoulder. As the Pyrah was about to turn and attack, he decided against it, seeing as he would be attacked by the guards and Blank. As he entered the keep, he went up some stairs and entered his room. He carefully put on his black cloak so he wouldn't burn anything in the castle and went back down in search of something to do while he waited for his placement spar.

Blankwindow
6th September 2004, 01:57 PM
OOC: Bread I'm going to go ahead and make a spar against you sometime later today. I'm not going to use Blankwindow. I'm going to just make a character off the top of mky head temporarily. Still going to be lightning. But just somone so that my character can be in the quest with yall and still get your spar done.

6th September 2004, 02:56 PM
ooc: admin & coder = Very busy atm but i still aim to get back into the ba at some point.

Ic: Mindstealer walked into the new clan halls, not much had changed, greeting no-one, he headed back to his quaters, he had work to do and would likly not seek the company of his clan mates for a few days if even a week. The kitchen staff were always more than helpful in bringing food and the like to his room, so he had no need to leave.

ooc: as i said still here just busy. if you start a quest or summot, pm me.

Blankwindow
6th September 2004, 03:40 PM
OOC: Carnage I don't expect you to be active again in the ba until all the bug are worked out and the main addition so no worries man. I would rather those done than have you get bogged down trying to do everything.

6th September 2004, 05:56 PM
Tim walked into the KoD. He had recently heard some troubling news, and wanted to make sure his allies were fine. He found Blank.

"Blank, it is good to see you," he said.

DarthFlame
6th September 2004, 06:06 PM
IC: Michaelmas strode silently into the great hall of the Kings of Dragons. He had been questing a lot, apparently in some cold mountainous region, and there was snow melting on his thick brown robes. The mage tapped his staff to the ground, shook off the white snow, and then walked up to greet Tim.

"It's good to see you again, Tim. I was looking for Blank myself."

The mage leaned over on his long staff, the blue gem bathing his face with pale light. He couldn't surpress a grin when he asked,

"How's our triple alliance, the Draconic Triuum, Tim? Are their any plans for a joint quest? Wherever a clan member may be, I'll be sure to help if help is needed."

Draco
6th September 2004, 06:46 PM
Tim sighed.

"Oh, yes, there's a joint quest in the works for sure. Just you wait. Saving the world and all dragonkind and all, it's gonna be fun."

Blankwindow
6th September 2004, 08:36 PM
Blankwindow had just gotten back.

"Yes there is 17 red dragons eggs have been stolen and given to a dark elf kingdom to be used as cavalry as well as killing a couple."

He said in a foul mood.

"I'm awaing a message from a dragon rider member telling me when they've found the location of the kingdom of darkelves."

Draco
6th September 2004, 08:41 PM
Tim saw Blank approaching, and turned to her.

"Already on it," he said. "In fact, we already know the location of the demon gate to Jhera, I'll assume you mean that. It's in the Stark Mountains. I can put you in touch with Charnel, if you wish. Also, any Dragon Guards you wish, or Dracizian soldiers, are at your disposal. An emergency alliance with the New Jedi Order is in the works."

Name : Rakoth

I just hope stats come back....

What's this I hear about a tournement??

Blankwindow
8th September 2004, 07:18 AM
There was a tournament in the first round stage before reset that used stats. So without them carnage made sometihing to occupy use until stats are back and then the second round of the tournament will only have four people any it to fight each other. ( dunno if it will be ffa or two 1 on 1 matches.)

though some of us in the ba have just kept on fighting as if nothing changed. SO if you could if i set up the spar with fatbreadstick would youy be ready to fight him?

no one seems to have notice that the clan quest was reposted

*walked in to the hall of "kings of dragons" and calmly yet firmly asked in a polite manner if he was permitted to join up with them, as he is an extreme dragon lover and has mastered them in many occasions*

Phoenix Ash
11th September 2004, 10:49 AM
DragonsPhyre turned around to see who had entered. "Of course you may join, although we tend to protect dragons rather than master them. We'll need to set up a classification spar to determine your fighting style."

Blankwindow
11th September 2004, 12:41 PM
Blankwindow turned to the new comer.

"Dragonsphyre said it all, but before i find someone to spar you. What is your name and why do you wish to join us?"

He asked plainly.

DraagSD
15th September 2004, 03:56 PM
*replies* fair enough my name is Draag and i wish to join this clan in the notion that i love dragons and eveything about them and i myself represent the "silver dragon" thus my subtitle is "SD".

Blankwindow
15th September 2004, 04:35 PM
Blankwindow laughed.

"You may represent silver dragons in some places. But I am a silver dragoin my boy. And I know nothing of you."

He shrugged.

"You sound ok to me. But we need to find someone willing to spar with you."

OOC: And i think someone to help with your roleplaying skills, but I'llhold my oppion here till i see more of your writing.

Thanks ingold I was going to ask you tomarro if you had saved that. I'll add it to the first post now.



Also tomarro I will put up the knew chat thread for us to put non clan related things for.



By the end of the next week if all previous members have no posted her at least once. They will me removed. I will not send any pms out to remind or have people check this thread. This may meen some people will get some rises in ranks.

Seraphim
16th September 2004, 09:55 PM
Ok, now I have a reason to post. I've been lurking around in the background because I haven't had anything really to say that wouldn't be construed as spam, but since you're openly asking us to all check in...here I am I guess.

edit- If you like I'd be willing to send out some pms. Or would you rather the rest of the members find this thread on their own?

Callisto
16th September 2004, 10:25 PM
Yeah, I'm still here, but also waiting for something to happen. We need to have a fight or something. Probably a quest since I'm in a couple fights right now, but I could still fight if we had to. I'd be using my new stats for this fight/quest/whatever.

Blankwindow
16th September 2004, 10:56 PM
Seraphim i had figured that was part of it that some of yall had just been waitinf ro a break. But for those who that isn't the issue. I want them to have to look. IF they come back to late with a good exuse i'll let them back in no questions but if they don't they'll have to go thru the same pattern again.

Callisto, I'm busy with other things. But if you would like to come up with something(since the current quest has died it seems.) then i will go along with it.

Bad_Kharma
17th September 2004, 03:06 AM
The current quest isn't dead, I'm just waiting for some more people to post. Even Callisto could join in by just saying he came with you, Blank.

And oe, oe, rise in rank, me like ... oh wait, that would make me leader again ... ah chucks :)

Anyway, do you want to train dragon spells again Sereph or not?

Rakoth
17th September 2004, 06:54 AM

Any ideas on how I could return to the wonderful quest that is KOD!

17th September 2004, 07:15 AM
Rakother read the post so far that weren't the copy and paste from the prevously thread. IE starting with the first post not made by me. That should sufficiently catch you up on date enough to jump in. And like Callisto you could just role-play you coming to the rest of the group with me.

17th September 2004, 07:34 AM

OOC: The 3 clan quest has started... By the way, do not worry, my sucky posts will soon... suck... less... I'm getting some training or something...

IC: Though The First One was busy battling Rakoth in his classification spar, a burst of flames followed by a puff of smoke appeared, displayed for all to see. Once the smoke had cleared, there were words written in flames just floating in the air and they read:

"To whom it may concern:
I have just recieved information from Bread that the attack has begun. I believe we should assist immediatley throughout the several points of battle before the Dragon Riders are overwhelemed, for I do not think that the Dracizian Republic will answer our calls.

They lingered in the air for a few minutes, plenty of time for everyone to read, before they dissapeared in flames and smoke.

Same goes for the training thread. I’m busy for once in my life, I have something else to do than to sit on GUA all the time. Besides, I still have to remake the spell training thread.

20th September 2004, 04:10 PM
Well some people i didn't know name changes, nesuke i'll edit your nasme same to you taber.

As to the quests taber on the presetn one you don't need ot read much just the last page. as for your entrence just write you came with me. So i met up with you in Myth De'leor and make somehting up from there.

And as Rakoth I know there back, but they have no posted in the clan forum or sent me a pm from what i know of. And i thing i said was post in this thread. And that no one is to send pms to remind them if they don't check tough luck.

here's the current list

Omega Arc
Kronox2
Paladin
xEcKox
Loco_Loco
Hoax

Nesuke
20th September 2004, 04:12 PM
Kronox and OA wont be back at all. OA told me last time around and Kronox announced it in the second to last thread.

20th September 2004, 08:22 PM
And that no one is to send pms to remind them if they don't check tough luck.

Whoops... :banghead: my bad, I sent Loco one before I checked this thread. There isn't an unsend option for pms is there? Ah well, I think his time zone'll take care of that... I hope.

Hi I am still here, I am just a bit inactive at the moment, sorry blank!

Nesuke
21st September 2004, 10:24 AM
Um, who are you Loco? I havent seen you before...

I would advise MYSELF to make longer posts than this, but my time is limited and my subject is insufficient so I guess its kind of a lost cause. Warn ahead BK

XG

Do not delete my comments or I shall lock the post next time and I don't want to be bothered with that shit. My comment was not just for you, it was for the others as well, your post was just the last one

To repeat myself, I advise you all to make your posts a little bit longer then the one liners that are going around now. I know it is all clan related, but when entereing again, put a little bit more effort into it then "I'm here". The way you post reflects upon your clan and vica versa.

It's also always nice to see some IC stuff, as long as it doesn't get out of hand and results into two people having a pillow fight or something

- BK

You've changed BK, alot...

Blankwindow
21st September 2004, 03:05 PM
Nesuke he was a mermber that joined while you were inactive. Loco since you werre only a day late I'm going to let you back in. Before i can put you back on the first post. I forgot were you a warrior or a mage?

also loco you might want to work on your post length you have thirty more posts than me and all of your stats are ten percent or less of mine.

Nesuke
22nd September 2004, 02:13 AM
Well, I am kind of out of the RPing business now. I am still teaching though. IF you want to come along. I bid you guys goodbyes because theres nothing left apart from fun. RPing is too much work...

Blankwindow
22nd September 2004, 01:28 PM
I'm assuming this meens you are resinging from this clan?

Nesuke
22nd September 2004, 01:41 PM
Yeah, pretty much. I havent got the time for it anymore. Maybe the odd discussion and five minutes teaching melee RPing but nothing else really.

Loco_Loco
22nd September 2004, 02:25 PM
I was a mage Blankwindow, I am just getting back into the habbit of making longer posts, I have not done much RPing since the old GUA was reset, I will just get better and better and make longer and longer posts (I am sure... I hope!) So yes, I was a mage, not a warrior, ok!

Blankwindow
22nd September 2004, 03:02 PM
Alright Loco i'm readding you and removing nesuke.

25th September 2004, 09:45 AM
Blankwindow laughed.

"You may represent silver dragons in some places. But I am a silver dragoin my boy. And I know nothing of you."

He shrugged.

"You sound ok to me. But we need to find someone willing to spar with you."

OOC: And i think someone to help with your roleplaying skills, but I'llhold my oppion here till i see more of your writing.

*replies* excuse my absence i have had school and my band practice to attend to," let me know when you find a sparring partner for me"
*turns and walks to a quiet room in solitude and patience waiting for his sparring partner* " i shall be here until needed"

DarthFlame

A brown robed man was pacing the halls of the Kings of Dragons keep. He had a rather distant gaze in his eyes. He was thinking of numerous electrical contraptions for a war the Draconic Triuum was involved in. The mechanical details took all his attention, and the mage was rather oblivious to the new adventurers who ushered into the hall.

The wizard raised his dark eyes from his thoughts when Blankwindow raised his voice.

A classification spar? I believe it is my turn to test the mettle of the newcomers.

Michaelmas strided briskly over to the leader of the Kings of Dragons, tapping his long staff to the ground.

"Sir, I will accept this spar with the boy unless you object. by conflict with others, I may come to know myself better as well."

The mage nodded to the young man and walked off to prepare the battle ground.

OOC: I'll make the thread soon.

Blankwindow
25th September 2004, 07:08 PM
OOC: NO i will make the thread.

Blankwindow nodded.

"Then it shall be I will prepare yalls fight soon."

*Cedric walked in and took a look around. He noticed a newcomer talking with Michaelmas. He spotted Blank not too far and approached him nodding respectfully before speaking.*

"Good day Blankwindow. There's been an issue I've been meaning to dicuss with you regarding access to the clan's draconic magic. I'm aware that we have allies that share many of our interests and in fact I've seen many allies from these clans in the clan halls as of late. With this sort of open door policy I wanted to ask you if it would be alright to extend invitations to these individuals to learn draconic magic alongside us."

Blankwindow
12th October 2004, 07:25 AM
OOC: Answered ya already.. so wont go in character,

Anyway i was thinking early when i aksed ingold something. and it gave me an idea for a new rule. one i doubt will ever me inforce, but a rule. I'm going to let yall vote on it though.

Should there be a KOD rule from now on that states if your ever banned from this forum you will be removed from this clan. and if you are un-banned you may rejoin but will have to work all over again for your previous position. if it was a ranked position.

Bad_Kharma
12th October 2004, 04:12 PM
I vote yes, but I doubt anyone in this clan will get banned. But if you are not mature enough to follow the rules, what the hell are you doing here?

MOD SPEAKING: You can cast the vote in here, discussing the yes/no vote should be done in the misc thread.

Rakoth
12th October 2004, 04:24 PM
Agreed, my vote is YES

Loco_Loco
13th October 2004, 11:53 AM
I vote yes!

I'll support this motion...

That is enough votes for me. Though I seriously doubt one of our members will ever be banned. it never hurts to be prepared.

Cecil Lockheart
14th October 2004, 10:44 AM
entering on someplace so he can rest he enter K.O.D. and after seeing what it was he continued to the master's room and ask can i join?

Blankwindow
14th October 2004, 11:13 AM
We don't stop anyone from joining but you must spar a current clan person so that we can evaluate your roleplaying skills as well as polace your fighting style amounst our ranks. do we have any volunteers for this?

Cecil Lockheart
14th October 2004, 01:13 PM
well i'm ready anyone up to the challenge?

Bad_Kharma
14th October 2004, 05:06 PM
"I am sorry Blankwindow, normally I would be glad to test this newcomer, but I fear my own clan is keeping me rather busy. If there is no one else willing to step up though, I am prepared to challenge this wyrmling, but I doubt I will be able to give him the best I've got ... but that probably won't be needed to beat him"

Smirking at his little joke, Ingold turned to the new arrival, observing the newest addition to the cla, if he passed the test that is.

"Well, not much about you is there?"

OOC: Could you describe your char please, while rping?
Could I urge the others here as well to rp their posts, it would look so much nicer, especially to the newer members.

Blankwindow
14th October 2004, 06:03 PM
OOC: I second what ingold said.

Blankwindow nodded.

"it's no wories Ingold. If someone doesn't volunteer i will do it myself."

OOC: plz someone volunteer. My time is hard to come by as is like BK.

He shrugged.

"Yes please tell us more about yourself."

Seraphim
15th October 2004, 05:58 AM
*Cedric lifted his head and watched with mild disinterest. He had been sleeping against the east wall of the main hallway and was awakened by some of the chatter. He gazed idly at the stranger and when all fell silent for a moment, Cedric piced himself up and made his way over to the group that had gethered in the middle of the hall. He stopped, bowing to Blankwindow as soon as he was noticed and then nodded to the newcomer.*

"Good day. Please excuse me but was listening on your conversation and I would be willing to test this newcomer."

Time's a bit hard to come by for me at the moment but I will try to be as active as possible.

Rakoth
15th October 2004, 08:38 AM
Rakoth entered the chambers and walked quickly towards the bahamut. His held his head high and kept his gaze fixed on the object he was walking towards, the base of the throne. He did not presume to put his gaze onto the throne before he was in the center of the Hall. Once in the center of the draconian hall, he knelt on one knee, and kept his head bowed.

"Blankwindow, it saddens me to see these clan halls fall into disuse. I have noticed that the Master position is empty, and I believe if we held a tournament to decide who would get that position."

"The modalities would be simple, it would be an elimination tournement until only four remain. The last four would fight against you, Seraphim, Ingold and DragonsSphyre the highest ranked members. The two that fight the best would face off in a finale match up to decide who the next Master would be."

Rakoth had lifted his head to speak, and now he remained kneeled, waiting for the Bahamuts opinion on his proposition.

"Of course, I would participate, but I would also like it if the rest of this once proud and flourishing clan could join us."

I will also be posting in the Classification spar, but I think I already know what to do with FatBreadstick

Blankwindow
15th October 2004, 09:34 AM
Blankwindow turned to cedric and laughed.

"As long as we've known each other you want to bow to me? Old friend even though i out rank you you know i don't like formalities like that..."

He shrugged.

"If you feel you are able then you may."

OOC: When you have time make the thread cedric and post the link here.

He then turned to Rakoth and nodded.

"I will work on getting that set up. BUt as to the last four fights. I do not think that would be able. BUt i have another idea."

Rakoth
15th October 2004, 02:14 PM
"When I am making a formal request, I like to impress on the young ones that rank is important, but you speak the truth, we have known each other for long."

Rakoth stood now completely and grinned, part of the fun was to remind BlankWindow of his own rank, and to tease him about it.

"I still think this clan has fallen from where it used to stand... We need something to reenergize everything slightly."

THe quest is restarting slowly, I hope that others will follow in there posting...

Seraphim
15th October 2004, 07:57 PM
"Very well. I shall return shortly once I have made my preparations."

*At that Cedric left, disappearing into one of the adjoining hallways. About an hour passed and Cedric returned and made his way over to the fledgling member*

After hearing that her brother was entering the KOD castle she rushed into the castle and enter she was asking where her brother was and saw a guard and the guard ask her who are you then she replied I'm Naru,Real Dragoon Master's sister where's my brother...the guard then tell her he was on a qualification match she was really happy knowing her brother was alive she rushed to the master's room and ask can i join i always wanted to be with my brother...

Rakoth
19th October 2004, 07:06 AM
Rakoth looked to the newcomer, walking in almost as if the certainty of her membership was assured.

"Welcome to the King of Dragons, I hear you know of Real Dragon Master, one of our newest members. Please, tell me what brings you here, and why you are bothering the guards. Questions should be directed to true members. And of course, if you wish to join, you must speak with BlankWindow, he is the lord and bahamut in this clan."

Rakoth stepped aside to reveal BlankWindow sitting on his throne, with a sweeping gesture he meant for Naru to kneel and express her wish.

naru
19th October 2004, 07:10 AM
well i heard from the plain lands that my brother was here after he desapears from home i was looking for him and know that i know he's here i wanted to be with him no matter what (crying while replying).

Bad_Kharma
19th October 2004, 07:15 AM
Naru, you could use some rp training me thinks ... time I started up the dojo again. Report to the link on the main post that says 'the training thread'

"Yet another new member, one that just got past the guards ... hmmm, must drill those guys again. She even got past the magical wardens ... guess it's time to renew those as well. Good thing more people started to join, shows the flaws in security over here."

After his monologue, Ingold stood himself next to Rakoth, smirking at the way he motioned the newcomer to bow. For one, Ingold knew how Blankwindow hated to be called master and he could only imagine what the lightning master would think of people kneeling and bowing before him. So he just played along with Rakoth, if not only to jest a little bit ...

"Yes come forth and kneel before are all-powerful master and leader, but please, stop the sobbing … if not we will kill you and feed your remains to the dragons *smirk* "

I kill myself sometimes, now let’s just hope that Blankwindow doesn’t kill me

Bad_Kharma
19th October 2004, 07:25 AM
"Your bother is training, but tell me, are you here to join or to wait for your brother, if it is the latter, I would advise you to wait outside."

MOD SPEAKING/ This is a clan thread, you are allowed to post in here if
1. You are a member of this clan or want to join it
2. You discuss clan business only

We mods can be lenient towards rping, but that last post comes very close to spam and is a warnable offense.

Stop making posts like this, okay, you are here to join, but posts like this are considered spam since you have basically said the samle thing 3 times now. This is a forum, not a chat thread.

19th October 2004, 07:34 AM
Blankwidnow patted Ingold on the back of the neck added a few jolts of electricty and remvoing the air to stop insulation.

"Ingold, try not to scare the little ones. One day it might just bite ya in the ass."

He turned to Naru.

"Yes your brother is here, But if you wish to stay here you must join the clan. And have a spar just like dragoons."

ok i accept if my brother can also can i

Bad_Kharma
19th October 2004, 07:37 AM
Ingold didn't feel much of the jolts produced by Blankwindow, after all, due to his adeptness to lightning, his skin had underweant a series of adaptations and weak lightning attacks hardly hurt Ingold anymore.

"If you don't mind Bankwindow, I will fight this one ..."

Blankwindow
19th October 2004, 07:37 AM
Blankwindow nodded/

"Yes you can. I will get you set up with a spar later to decided your ranking if any and place you by your fighting style. "

"Yes but he wont hurt ya... much. and he certainly wont kill you. This isn't an all out spar it's for judging purposes. More or less you will go at it at your best and he will fwill challange you, but not obliterate you as he could."

9th November 2004, 01:28 PM
It was a dark and stormy night, as a figure walked up the path to the keep, stopping briefly to observe the keep, and the sign saying they were recruiting. (See, BK? I read the whole post this time.) His wide-brimmed hat kept the rain off his face, while a black leather trenchcoat kept the rain off the rest of his body. Beneath the trenchcoat he wore a black shirt and dark, faded blue jeans. He had a longsword strapped to his belt on his right side, under his trenchcoat. (OoC: If such technology is allowed in this clan, he also has a six-shooter holstered on his left side.) He paused, some distance from the gate to the keep.

"What do you think?" he asked.

Seemingly out of nowhere, a growl of approval could be heard. The darkness seemed to swirl at one spot, and a black, shaggy wolf appeared. It seemed to appear out of nowhere, but in reality it had merged with the darkness some time ago, and was now revealing itself.

"These people seem trustworthy," it said. "Still, I don't need to remind you to stay on your guard."

"No, you don't," said the human.

He then approached the gate, waiting for someone to notice his presence. A streak of lightning flashed across the sky, closely followed by a clap of thunder.

Blankwindow
9th November 2004, 05:12 PM
OOC: Were a miedeval clan so just don't use the gun with anything KOD related. though using science if done correctly when doing spells is ok.

Blankwindow had his cloak on which hid him in the shadows and a spell that the leaders of this clan ahd long ago mastered to allow him to go unnoniced even by a dark master. Though he didn't think this kid was one. He watched the wolf as well. One of the guards spoke up. this one a distance relatively to the dwarves who had made this citadel for the KOD a long looooooong time ago.

"State ye name and business boy were not fond of uninvied guests"

Amethyst Shine
9th November 2004, 06:15 PM
OoC: This man is not that young, he's fairly old. Think Auron, from FFX.

IC: The man was not in the least impressed by Blank's skills at hiding. His cold, mysteriously emotionless voice revealed nothing about him.

"My name is Fukachi," he said, as lightning flashed once more in the background. A low fog began to roll in. "I have come, to help you to guard the Soulstones."

Blankwindow
9th November 2004, 11:41 PM
OOC: Compared to blank hes still younge.

Blankwindow stepped forward and growled.

"Though ammerable we do not need help i portecting them. we did not know of there existence until they were gone. But we keep them well guarded now."

He shook his head. Not impressed with the kid either.

"Other than that what reason and how do you think you could benefite this clan?"

Amethyst Shine
10th November 2004, 04:05 PM
OoC: How old is Blank?

IC: Fukachi nodded slowly. He had had a feeling Blank would say that.

"Well." He paused. "I am a highly skilled warrior, and you must admit that one man could make all the differance in a combat situation. And skilled though you and your clan may be, only a small percentage could hold it's own against . . . some creatures I have battled. I figured you would be grateful for a little extra help. Now, I have said my piece. I leave the decision up to you, weather to admit me into your clan, or to turn me away."

Blankwindow
10th November 2004, 09:39 PM
Blankwindow had to laugh.

"I think you greatly underestimate nearly every member here. Majority of them could handle you alone and if they can handle you then they could handle your creatures."

He shrugged.

"If no one else complains then I will not stop you from entering into this clan."

OOC: He's pretty damn old. But I can't speak for his exact age because i've never contemplaited that. but pretty damn old.

Also if no one disagrees then i need someone to volunteer for n eval.

Callisto
11th November 2004, 12:47 AM
*Sitting off to the side of Blank as he puts this stranger through a rigorous interview, Callisto watches the new-comer, reminded of how he was years ago. Eager and ready to be a part of a collective group. His answers were good enough to be tested, and Blank thought him worthy if he could pass the initial spar.*

"I would like to battle him. He seems to have potential, so I'll be glad volunteer."

OOC: I'll be gone the majority of Thursday-Saturday, so if you think someone else can get a desired amount of posts in that amount of time, go ahead and pick them instead.

Blankwindow
11th November 2004, 08:03 AM
OOC:Amethyst, you have a choice wait until around saturdat or sunday to begin your spar with callisto or if someone else comes up before than spar with them.

Blankwindow nodded.

"So be it old friend. Though someone else may take your place while your on business over at the BOE tourny."

Amethyst Shine
16th November 2004, 05:01 PM
OoC: If someone else vollenteers before Saturday, I'll battle said someone. If not, I'll battle Callisto.

IC: Fukachi slowly nodded. By now, th fog was thick upon the ground, especially near the base of the hill.

"I thank you," he said. "I will return when it is time for my spar. Come, Banteki." With these words, he turned around, and left, as did his wolf companion. Several other wolves howled in the distance, smelling Banteki's presence.

Sorry RDM, but I checked into it and you reason you were banned seems pretty good. I doubt you will be back to GUA anytime soon.

"Sorry Blank, I was preoccupied with other tasks. I will lead Fukachi down to the first lower cavern (http://www.giveupalready.com/showthread.php?t=5272) for his eval."

OOC: Well here goes Since i'm a moderator for DS now. I'm going to be leaving the BA forum almost completely and so am going to be stepping down from my position as the leader of this clan.

You have three choices.

1. Choose a member from the current members to the new leader. Preferably from the upper ranks
2. Just let the master dragons as a group lead the clan.
3. close the clan.

i would vote against three since this clan has been around almost as long as the BA clans have.

21st November 2004, 11:17 AM
Thanks for the vote of confidence, I suggest we have some form of vote, to see who would be better. We need to make sure we speak with everyone, since this thread has been inactive, we might actually need to PM them to make sure they come and see what is up.


I vote against 3, I don't want to close this clan. Its been here far too long.

Amethyst Shine
21st November 2004, 11:19 AM
I agree. I vote against 3. And I'll also vote for 1.

Seraphim
21st November 2004, 11:36 AM
Same here. A lot of people have become inactive however, should I set up a mass PM?

Blankwindow
21st November 2004, 02:46 PM
Well Seraphim plz do pm the members who haven't responded yet to this. Also Bear in mind if you dont want to elect a new leader you can just premote enough people to have three master dragons and let the clan be ruled by a council of sorts.

thats what i meant with two. If two is chosen i think the best act would be to move Move Bk down to master dragon and premote someone up from the ranks to be the third.

Also leave the top three rnks in cas eeventually this clan picks up and you have people to fills those.

Callisto
21st November 2004, 02:59 PM
I agree with the others. We should elect one leader, like we have now, keeping the same ranks. This clan shouldn't just go because you can't be active in it anymore.

Also, Blank, just post in the battle when you're ready to judge it. The two of us will keep fighting until you say so.

Sarkon
21st November 2004, 03:51 PM
My vote is for anything but 3. This clan is old and has lasted a long time, i dont see y it has to end now.

Tarukai
21st November 2004, 03:51 PM
Ah. Good idea with the mass PM.

sorry also for not being active for.... who knows how long, in the BA. I haven't RPed in it for a while now, and I just never got around to checking up on this clan.

anyway, I vote for one leader too. and if we do decide on that, we'll need to have an election of them, right? if so, I'll do my best to keep active in here, and probably come back to RPing, but if you need a reason for my lack of activity, it's probably because I've started my first year of high school this year, so I need to get in tune with all the things like the masses of homework, and such.

but I'll do my best to stay active.

EDIT: and no, this caln should not end. as everyone else said, it's been here far too long. and also, I was happy when I recieved the invitation to join the clan. (though I didn't expect my inactivity.)

I just don't have the time to be actively involved in this clan, I can barely keep up with my current projects. Now that I'm involved with Tal'Vorn as well I'm now a one clan man, since this clan is AoTFO, I'm busy enough as it is, so you can scrap my name from the list.

Maybe when I find the time again, I'll join once more, but right now, I'll have to leave this one behind. Need anything though, feel free to ask.

If you want, I could make a recruitment thread for the KoD, it's up to you people. But new members will only get you so far, think of projects with which you can keep them busy and interested, quests, FFA and tournaments will only get you so far.

OOC: Well, if Rakoth could finish up my evaluation ROFL... I can't post IC 'till it is, so if a mod gets mad, I will edit meat later if you want. I vote Rakoth and Sephrim both lead the clan with a third man so they can settle disputes... or just one person, but not three.

Well, since I let off on your Eval, I should say you are in, and I will suggest to BlankWindow to make you a mage.

I like the idea of one leader and three people below him to vote on actions. Actually, I read about a voting system where there is one leader and three members directly below him, and the leader is assigned two points and the other three one, for voting purposes. Each person assigns points to either yes or no to pass an action. Anyone ever heard of this method? I forget what it's called. Point is, we could use this method for voting purposes. But I digress.

Simply enough, I like the idea of one leader and three Master Dragons.

I like the sound of that Amethyst, I definatley vote against 3 ( I have been VERY inactive for the past few weeks but I am back now and I am ready to... do stuff) I vote for 1 I think RaKoth should take over!

Amethyst Shine
24th November 2004, 02:15 PM
I agree with you on all accounts, Loco-Loco.

I reccomend we vote on the measure of electing Rakoth as leader.

Rakoth
24th November 2004, 02:38 PM
...
Hmm, we need to get something organised before you begin casting your votes like this. We also need to determine the best way to govern the clan.
I think the leader + 3-4 sub leaders that vote on things is a great idea. The main issue with this clan right now is rising from the ashes of inactivity. We all follow this thread, and yet there is not much to say, well now is the time to say something.
Seraph any news with those PMs?

Thank you both, I really appreciate the vote but there are some poeple that still need to express their opinion. Eventually we need to do something thought.

Loco_Loco
24th November 2004, 02:42 PM
Yes I agree that the leader + 3 subs would be a great way of doing things but yes we do need to get everyone who is still even partialy active back and find away to remove the ones who are inactive without them coming back in a few weeks and beeing like hey why am I not in the clan anymore, if you get me

Rakoth
24th November 2004, 02:44 PM
Definetly, but it will get easier when we have a new leader, and then create a new thread. Since when leadership changes, the thread must. That in itself will purge most inactive ppl.

Blankwindow
24th November 2004, 07:05 PM
And dont; worry about the tranfer of the new post when it comes time i will send the new leader a copy of the first psot with propper urls and such as well as editing the history part.

and though most active people here weren't aorund then. When this clan was very active it took a leader and the three master dragons to keep it running propperly so if yall plan on picking up the pace again i agree that is the best way to go.

and if it becomes nevcasary amethyst's point system idea is good but there was never a problem before.

Amethyst Shine

Guys, I just thought you should know, I found my math book and checked it. The system I mentioned is called a "weighted voting system". In case anyone here was wanting to do any research on it.

Seraphim

Seraph any news with those PMs?

I've sent a PM to everyone in the clan with read receipts attached. Everyone I got a receipt back from seems to have showed up... DragonsPhyre and DarthFlame still haven't read the one's I sent them nor I have I seen them around for some time. Carnage, I didn't bother sending one to since he seems busy enough with other things and IMO has pretty much abandoned this clan. If you want I can send him one too but only if you ask me.

Loco: Did you ever read the PM I sent you? Since I never got a read receipt back...

Loco_Loco
25th November 2004, 09:50 AM
Yes I did read the PM and I am sure I clicked ok when it asked for a read receipt!

Rakoth
25th November 2004, 09:52 AM
So now we need to determine what the transfer process will be.

Amethyst Shine
25th November 2004, 11:19 AM
I believe the first thing to do shoul be to elect a new leader. Then we make a new thread. Simple.

Oh, and if we need to do something to rid us of the inactivity problem, a joint quest with the DragonRiders might be a good idea. I have noticed that this clan seems a bit to secluded.

Tarukai
25th November 2004, 11:28 AM
I'm al for the one main leader, and then three master dragons. we should then elect the main leader, and after either elect the master dragons, or have the leader pick them. and making a new thread works. but, I think if we're planning on making a new thread, we should first. make a recruitment thread, or something like it, so make sure some of the people who are inactive at the moment might be in still.

Rakoth
25th November 2004, 11:39 AM
Yeah, the seclusion of this clan will change once we have a new leader. I intend to apply for one of the top positions, so if I don't get lead, I will at least try to get the third master dragon. (we have 2 now if I am not mistaken)
I have a few ideas that I will try and integrate here, as well as forming alliances with other clans.

EDIT: Just realised... This sounded a lot like a campaign add... doh...

Loco_Loco
25th November 2004, 11:45 AM
LoL, so how are we gonna decide the new leader?

Blankwindow
25th November 2004, 12:30 PM
I'll nominate someone who i think could take the position and if yall don't like that person then you each person will toss out there who they think should be the leader the one with the most votes wins.

with master dragons. they are supposed to be appointed by the leader or deappointed so the new leader has total control over that/ BUT the members of this clan can veto the leader so to speak with a majority vote.

I nominate Rakoth for leader.

I second that vote ... what? ... don't make me smite you

don't make me smite you for touching my post :golbez:
you have no powers here you pitiful dragon *remebers he still wants a char in DS ... I'll shut up now

How many other people do we need to get votes off, is anyone else even active? I think we should just make Rakoth leader now?

Rakoth
25th November 2004, 12:54 PM
There are other ppl, I know Sarkon posted a few pages back. This can't be done in a single afternoon. I want to let everyone post. I suggest we wait until Monday, so that ppl can post over the week-end, its fairer to poeple who don't have a cpu durning th week.

And of course, there's the Thanksgiving Week to consider.

Rakoth
25th November 2004, 01:13 PM
That's true, we don't have Thanksgiving at the same time up here in Canada, so for us its not a holyday.

I dunno how thanksgiving week works, do you guys get off school for a week or something?

Amethyst Shine
25th November 2004, 01:17 PM
I wouldn't know about public school, I'm homeschooled. But I get Tuesday-Monday off because I go down to New Jersey to visit my aunt.

If you want details about the Thanksgiving Week, and about the holiday itself, please feel free to PM me.

If i rember right from wen i was back in highschool you get like the day before thanksgiving thru the weekend off.

and colleges most start there brak two or three days before the holdiay and go on to the end of the weekend. so monday everyonie should be back.

Monday night I'll tally up the votes and send the needed stuff to whoever is the new leader.

I believe callisto and dp were here before me and seraphim joined about the same time as me. rakoth hasn't been here as long as them but has more time to run the clan.

also bk this is clan business since it is directly responsable for the fate and leader of the clan. as long as it stays on topic of voting and asking question related to clan business.

I don't consider who is here the longest and when do you celebrate thanksgiving clan business. I made that post to ensure that things would stay on topic, an other off topic post like that will now result in an immediate warning, this was just the unofficial one - BK

Callisto
26th November 2004, 12:51 AM
Even though I've been here longer than most, I am not able to be leader of this clan as well. Since I am one of the Headmasters of Brethren of Elements, that qualifies me as a leader. I believe there is a rule somewhere that you can only be leader of one clan at a time, so I can't be the Bahamut.

Rakoth would be a fine leader, so I fully support him.

Blankwindow
26th November 2004, 01:00 AM
Callisto is right it's against the rules to lead two clans at once. soryr forgot to say that earlier.

30th November 2004, 11:12 AM
I thank everyone for there support, and the decision seems to have been made. One thing I wish to warn everyone about first, if you view my member status, you will notice I have been made into a mod.
I am going to be moderating the Tal'Vorn forum.

I will take the burden of leadership, but I must warn you, if it gets to be too much, I am afraid I am going to need to step down. I can say for sure that I have time until Xmas, but once school starts once again in January, I will need to reevaluate my schedule and my priorities.

Blank, I guess its up to you.

Phoenix Ash
2nd December 2004, 03:29 PM
Ok, I've read the posts(Thanks, Seraphim, for PMing and thus bringing it to my immediate attention.) and I agree Rakoth would make the best leader.

I also must apoligize for my inactiveness, but I've been grounded and even over the holidays, my computer time was restricted and I felt I had higher priorities than GUA at that time. Even now, I am still grounded and am only on because my parent's aren't home. Hopefully, I can get ungrounded soon, but no guarantees.

2nd December 2004, 07:33 PM
It looks like you had your name changed who are ya? i don't recognize the name and Rakoth is the new leader.

Speaking of which Rakoth I will send you the first post some time tomarro so you have all the urls as well as an updated clan history. and a little more.

So yes I am formally retiring as alcan leader for the second time this time is permanent not just a vacation. Rakoth is the new leader having been elected by the majority of the clan membership. in the next few days there will be a new clan thread with the fire post updated.

though if this clan ever needs help with something don't worry about asking. even if it's just coming up with a location for a spar, quest, idea, or something. I'm not leaving for lack of enjoyment in the clan but because of other duties.

2nd December 2004, 07:40 PM
well i had become a member way earlier and you sed that you would set up a sparr for me with another person, but this was a while ago. So i'm not spamming if you go look through the other pages you will be sure to find me in there.

This is spam. This could easily have been handled through PM--Shade

2nd December 2004, 10:03 PM
alright, thanks... I might have trouble getting on for the next few days, since my dad threatened to remove my keyboard, and this time will go through with it.

Anyway, I will make a more formal announcement when I don'T have my dad breathing down my back.

To make a new thread and close this one, you know who to contact, your friendly neighbourhood mod ... SHADE, héhéhé :tongue: -BK

Edit - Thanks for that BK, I was wondering. I will ask shade to create a new thread tonight when I have a little time. AT work now.
