Over time I’ve grown particularly fond of my habit of not deleting files regardless of their uselessness — this has saved my butt in several occasions. On this subject, I recently came across of a backup of some assorted IftU/AtS-related files in my homedir on bluecore, and one file named
The_Start_of_The_Search.txt caught my attention.
I shortly remembered that a certain individual whose username I will not disclose dropped me a message on the forums in January 2008 with a proposal for scenario 1 of IftU’s then-unnamed sequel.
The verbatim contents of the text file follow.
I lLiked a Lot Your Campaing, here is an contribution for your sequel (accept it Please) :
After many years of wandering Galas, The Lady Of Ligth and Mal-Keshar runned into the Aragwaith Country seeing wath happened to the elves they tried to spoke with them so they reconciliate but it was useless, so they stayed a few nigths on the place of the Forest elves, and they started to deliberaate once again the Mal-Keshar idea of a few years of destroying Uria, since they rescued some of the prisioner of the Jail, the drake Spke:
Drake (I cannot Remember his name): Long Ago my Ancestors destroyed the gate to hell, but seeing that still are demons on Earth, i think that the gate wasnt destroyed at all, but was closed by our fire Breath, if im rigth i can guide you there to see the gate, if you want to enter onto the hell...
Galas: Yes that sounds like a plan but how we can get there? and more important since the power of the union was destroyed how we can destroy Uria?.
Mal-Keshar: ... ... ..., when i was a human mage aprentice i overheard some Silver Mages something about of the Clearnus Book, a book that is cursed by the knowledge that it posses since it have the greatest and darkest secrets of the magic, and my master said the same thing of it..., so i asume if we can found it maybe we can know if the union is really gone, or if its a major power than it.
Lady Of Ligth: Yes.., i have heard of that book, but he last one that had it was an Lich, fore being more specific an Horrible Lich, more powerfull than Keshar himself, and Horror Lich, but i heard that he was Buried onto an a Mountain (asuming that this is the Final from the Dark Hordes since i read the Ending idea i hope that the Authors dont have problem with this) but
Mal-Keshar: Aye its true that is such an Lich but, the last ive heard of him was that he wasnt exterminated, in fact he was just buried under the Rocks triying to escape to take revenge once again.
Lady Of Ligth: But the Problem is how we are gonna to free the Lich, and two how we are gonna to vanish him, since it more powerfull than Keshar and My Powers arent Completly Awoke at his point.
Galas: So we have to call to the Union, not the one of Ligth and dark but one from Almost all the races of this World, Excluding, Both Demons and Kahagarathi, and now that i remeber, wasnt a Civilization that was more superior on magic than Elves?.
Mal-Keshar: You refer the one of the Library?.
Galas: Yes, know that they said that they Knew that they opened some kinda of PPortal, if they are Survivors, and lets have hope that, well they havent lost their knowlredge, we can try to convince them to join them to our side, and try to open the Portal that our drake Friend Mentioned Before.
Mal-Keshar: Yes that wouldnt be such an a bad Idea.
Lady Of Ligth: Agree..., wait! there is...
Elvish Messenger: Red Alert, Red Alert, an a Shaxtal Group is aproaching.
Galas: The Shaxtal are now animals, they cant kill anything now.
Messenger: I Know, but these are lead by a Loyalist.
Galas: Well we have no choice but figth.
Well this is all for the First Scenario.
Admittedly, if I invested as much effort as this guy storyboarding AtS scenarios, I’d have finished the campaign and its (currently untitled) sequel by the end of 2009.
