51 Zirzak the tremendous on Sat Aug 11, 2012 1:04 am

Why the Trall adore Zirzak

• He was the first High Chieftain marking the end of Elden rule.
• He stood at 9'2 
• He took on a group of 200 so goblins...alone...and won.
• He designed a good lot of the Ember district, so more or less designed all of old Dharfang.
• Blade was the size of an adult human...both of them
• Ate the goblin king...no joke he actually ate this guy.
• Had 7 children, all but his oldest went separate ways to found other holds in the mountains.
• Lived to the astounding age of 354

And Ol Grond is a direct descendent of this guy...kind of a big deal.

The end of Elden rule was marked by the Cataclysm. I think what you meant to say was that Zirzak was descended from the first High Chieftain of the Trall *after* the Cataclysm, yes? The blood of kings....it runs strong. Razz

Also, unbeknownst to most, Zirzak was one *hell* of a snappy tap-dancer! Razz

I always assumed the Trall did not have a high Cheiftain while under the boot of the elden empire.

55 Re I mean on Sat Aug 11, 2012 10:02 am

What I'm saying is that the Trall most likely where not aloud to have a government much less a supreme leader when the elden ruled them, after the cataclysm the Trall went underground and soon had to deal with the mass numbers of goblins in the valley where Dharfang was built. In short I'm saying Zirzak was the first leader of the Trall who was not an Elden, 6 of his 7 children founded other Trall tribes dotting the mountains, his oldest son stayed in Dharfang and took up his father's position when he died.

Well see, that's kind of not possible just because the Cataclysm occurred four and a half thousand years ago. Zirzak couldn't possibly have been alive back then. However, he *COULD* be the direct descendent of the first Trall High Chieftain.

See what I'm saying?

*Knock on door, you open door*
*An 8 foot tall black figure with glowing eyes and long dredlocks greets you*
"Hello, my name is Zandthak and I would like to talk to you about the book of mormon."
*You close the door quickly*
*The door is ripped off it's hinges and broken over Zandthak's knee, you are impaled with a jagged piece of wood*

62 Accent on Thu Aug 30, 2012 7:00 am

With Elberen on a temporary Hiatus perhaps when available we can expand the world a bit with little posts and what not like this one. Here is a little thing to start a brainstorm.

What are the accents of Elberen? Or how do you imagine them for each race. I for one don't know besides the fact Sprites are bloody spanish.

I think it really depends on what part of the world you're in - remember that we have only really explored a very small portion of the world. However, if I had to hazard a guess, it would be thus:



Elenian Humans - A light French accent (NOT ridiculous like Pepe Le Pew!)

Sprites - Spanish/Italian accents.

Elden - Light English/British.

Trall - Norse. Definitely Norse.

Orcs/Goblins - Cockney English.

70 Khurn on Sat Sep 08, 2012 3:15 pm

Perhaps the cataclysm awakened Khurn for real and he actually did wreak havoc along with the other damages of magical storms.

Who can say for certain? The Cataclysm could very well have been caused by some sort of malevolent dragon created by a botched Elden spell....who can say?
