Here it is. I hope you guys are not too disappointed by the short length. But you will be all surprised... I hope

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

Chapter Twenty: The Loss

Back at the grey plains in front of the Spam Castle, the army of GeeBee was still helpless against a foe many times stronger than all of them together. Weary from the long battle, the heroes backed off as the dark warrior advanced toward them. They were a hundred against the General alone, but it was useless; he seemed invincible.

Although the dark warrior could very well defeat the entire resistance force all by himself, the last remaining minions of Viper were also helping out. Clefo and his archer companions, useless against the Acolyte's magical armor, began taking down the lesser spammers. They would soon run out of arrows, though...

Andrei came back to his senses and saw the dark warrior standing on Xwing Guy's crushed body. Strenghtened by despair, he, along with Artoo and Silenthunter, tried to encircle the General. Thanks to their war tactics expertise, they successfully positionned themselves; however the dreaded Spammer simply laughed as their swords bounced back at them. He then proceeded to systematically send them flying away one by one.

A few of the lesser swordmen of GeeBee retreated from the battle, terrified by the idea of dying by the Tell You I Will. If any of them came back at GeeBee after the battle, no one knows. Sherack tried to relax and began analyzing his foe.


If we can't survive a hit from Tell You I Will, we need to dodge the attacks... thus, my armor will only hinder our success.

Sherack began removing the heavy metal armor he was wearing. He dropped his shield on the ground and readied his sword.

"Sherack! What are you doing! It won't work... Hold it!" shouted Rommel, obviously concerned by his friend's well-being.

Not heeding the advice, Sherack engaged himself in a duel against the terrible General. The dark spammer attempted a low swipe to cut Sherack's legs off, but thanks to the lessened burden, Sherack could easily jump over Tell You I Will. He used the opportunity to try to bash the Acolyte's head but something happened then that Sherack did not intend: The General disappeared and reappeared in his back!

Sensing the danger, Sherack rolled to his side, barely dodging the slash that was directed at his head. He quickly got back up and assumed a defensive position, trying to find a way to surprise his opponent. Unexpectedly, the General lowered his guard and began to laugh. Confused, Sherack wondered what was going to happen.

Sherack would never know, as a mere minion of the spam crept up behind his back and cut his head off effortlessly.

Not a word was spoken, not a finger moved as the warriors of GeeBee saw in horror their leader's head roll on the ground.

The reason behind my death:
It saddens me a little, but I thought it would be interesting to coincide my death in the story with the announcement I am going to make:

I am stepping down from my position as the LucasConsoles webmaster. I quit.

Why? Because I do not have the time, or will, to continue any further. Running LucasConsoles has become a burden rather than an enjoyment. It has become a chore; I cannot stand the thought of disappointing Chris or Zero any longer.

Do not be mistaken. I do have faith in LucasConsoles. I think it can become a great site, it has potential... just not with me at the helm. I thought I could write good articles and lead a staff properly, but I was wrong; my articles are often bad, poorly written. My only regret is that I did not figure it out any sooner.

In other words, I'm done with holding off the site from expanding as it should.

Rhett will take my place as the main webmaster. He will pick up my work where I left it. I have confidence in his abilities to do a better job than I did.

From now on, I am a normal member, just like most of you.

1) I've trained my young General well! I'm proud of you, General. Yes, from Hell, i am still watching you

2) That's really sad to hear Sherack Does this mean your no longer a forum admin or mod? Just plain old average joe like me and him?

Wow Rhett! Awesome Chapter!

And Sherack, I knew it was coming and it still caught me off guard! (Your Character's death that is!)

The business of you stepping down, is quite a shocker! But fortunately, the current MODs have had your great leadership and training to continue in the same great tradition of Modding that you have given Lucasforums! I just hope you won't disappear on us now!

Anf on a final note, I've got the next Chapter... I think


May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be ever at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall softly on your fields
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand

Sherack has asked me to do Chapter 22, so I will. I'm gonna start writing it now, but won't post it until chapter 21 is done.

I have some spiffy ideas and some new characters

To heal my heart and drown my woe
rain may fall and wind may blow
but there still be many miles to go

What's so horribly wrong about TUIW anyway? It's a fun game, all contained in one thread. The only purpose of closing it would be to slow people's post counts from rising, and what is the point of that? Who really cares about post counts anyway?

I mean outside of the story of course

And then it will posted here for all to read!

PS Rhett, your box is full, so I couldn't send you the whole chapter, there's much, much more! So make sure you get in touch with me for the rest! before pass judgment


May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be ever at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall softly on your fields
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand

Hey, If that's tonight than you might get my chapter soon too.

I decided tonight to make a little alteration to what I got.

I'm altering the story, pray I don't alter it any further

Chapter Twenty-One: The Beast Within

The dark hole that occupied the space where the giant wooden doors once stood still beckoned the four men who now stood at it's entrance. Each realizing there were no more trials to be had, no more easy battles. This next doorway led to just one thing... Viper.

And as the men stood, mustering every last ounce of courage, a cold draft whispered over them, carrying with it the stench of death. Even Rhett, who to this point had shown considerable valor and strength, seemed to falter and hesitate.


Rhett continued to stare at the gaping shroud of darkness for what seemed an eternity. And as he stood his thoughts drifted towards his friends fighting outside the castle, and the battle ensuing. When suddenly he realized it was his own voice he heard speaking, "We cannot wait any longer, we must confront Viper if are friends are to have any chance at all!" The others slowly nodded in agreement, one by one, their hearts winning the battle over their heads.

Tie Guy tightened the grip on his shield, and as he looked at the polished, tempered steel he saw his reflection. And in that reflection he saw a man without fear, but it was not the fear of the battle to come. It was a different fear altogether the reflection lacked. It was the fear of his past, who he was and what he did, that the reflection in the shield was without. Tie Guy was suddenly aware of the burden that had been lifted from his mind and soul. And with his new found freedom, he found himself suddenly looking forward to dispatching his one time master, Viper. With Shield in one hand, and his sword raised in the other, Tie Guy charged into the dark unknown with a loud cry.

Rhett, Leon and Havoc were suddenly caught off-guard as their friend plunged headlong through the doorway.

"What the...?", Havoc was quick to reply, but was cut short by Rhett who was already halfway through the doorway, "well, don't just stand there!". And with that, Leon and Havoc looked at each other, took a deep breath, and darted after their comrades.

As they crossed the threshold, Leon and Havoc were greeted by complete and utter darkness. It was the kind of darkness that taxes the mind, all one can do is try to keep you wits about you.

Leon whispered, he didn't know why he whispered, but in the darkness, it was all he could do, "Rhett? Tie Guy? Where are you?", He didn't have to wait long to find out.

Almost immediately after Leon's whisper, a voice shouted in defiance from the darkness, "Viper! You will surely suffer for all the Forummers who died in battle today!", it was Tie Guy, "Show Yourself! You don't think you can hide from me, do you? I know everything about you, remember?"

Havoc was heard next, panic in his voice, "Tie Guy, what in God's name are you doing?! Have you lost your wits?!"

"Leave him be. He knows what he's doing", it was Rhett this time, "Please know what you're doing, Tie" he added under his breath.

But before Rhett could finish his thought, Tie Guy's words seemed to get results, "Fools, you think I hide from you?!", a loud voice boomed, seeming to emanate from the very walls of the dark room, "I will not be bothered to deal with the likes of you. You are not worthy of my time. And as for you, Tie Guy, you have done well to bring me the leaders of GeeBee, everything went as I had planned. Now I will crush GeeBee and the traitor in one foul swoop!". Suddenly the room became filled with the sound of Viper's dark, maniacal laughter.

Seemingly fueled by the laughter, torches, which until now had remained unseen, become engulfed in an otherworldly flame casting an evil light on the warriors, who now shielded their eyes from the bombardment of light. Viper spoke again, "Now you will meet your fate at the hand of my newest acolyte! I call him, Lord Fergie!"

No sooner had Viper words been spoken, a giant grate across the large room began to slowly open. The sound of chains and metal grinding was all that was heard as the grate gradually lifted higher and higher. Each clickety-clack of the chain caused the men's hearts to skip a beat as sweat ran down the men's foreheads and into their eyes, causing their eyes to burn and sting reminding the men they were, at the moment, still alive. Each man working feverishly to wipe the sweat away and to quash their trembling, but with every clickety-clack of the chains, their wills became broken further. Slowly the grate rose, and slowly the fear became ever greater. Every second the clickety-clack seemed to get louder and louder in the men's minds. till it nearly deafened their thoughts.

clickety-clack

clickety-clack

clickety-clack

clickety-clack

Suddenly with a bang that jolted the men's nerves, the grate finished opening, and whatever evil lurked behind the gate was now free to rain death upon the warriors. The silence was intolerable, as the men strained to hear the beast and it's approach.

When suddenly the ground shook violently in conjunction with a loud thud escaping from the direction of the grate, before the men could even ponder it's cause, it happened again...and again. It continued, getting faster, louder and closer as it did.


Havoc shouted over the thundering footsteps, "This can't be good!"

As Rhett struggled, like the rest, to keep his balance on the now constantly shaking floor he yelled to Tie Guy, "What is it?!"

The answer could already be seen on Tie Guy's frightened face as he hollered a response, "I don't know! Whatever it is, you can bet it's not going to like us very much!"

Leon started to yell something but it was lost in a deafening roar originating from the now very close beast. Suddenly the footsteps stopped and the beast's breathing could be heard emanating from the darkness beyond the gate. The men huddled close and faced the danger together.

It's head was visible first, and it was big! It was long and covered in red scales and topped with two great horns that stretched backwards behind it's head. It's two large eyes burned red with hatred. Suddenly the beast bared it's razor sharp teeth as it opened it's mouth and once again made it's presence known with another ear-piercing roar. The beast began to fully enter the large room and as it did, it's immense size became apparent to the four warriors.

It was all Rhett could do to keep from stuttering as he spoke these simple words, "It's a dragon!"

The dragon began surveying the room with hungry eyes as Havoc whispered to the others, "Maybe if we remain really still and not make a sound, it won't notice us?" Just then, the dragon's gaze settled directly on the four men, "or not!"

What happened next was truly a legendary battle. The dragon again opened his mouth but this time it was not a mighty roar that came forth. Instead, it was a fiery mass of boiling flame and it was streaking towards the warriors at a high rate of speed.

Tie Guy raised his shield and the ball of flame collided into the mystical armor and exploded all around the warriors with a brilliant light show and immense heat. The dragon followed up the first attack with a great charge towards the men, roaring as it beared down on the four men.

Rhett shouted to be heard above the dragon, "Split up and we’ll try to confuse it!

The men darted in different directions, successfully confusing the beast, if only for a second, as it stopped in it's tracks. The first target the dragon noticed was Leon stumbling as he made his mad dash from the group. The dragon turned all his attention to Leon who was now aware of his new found predicament. Realizing he didn't have enough time to get up before the dragon was upon him, he rolled on his back, reached behind him, grabbed an arrow and quickly drew his bow and released. The dragon was a mere ten feet away as the arrow struck the beast in the front leg. The beast's scales were to thick to pierce but it did cause a slight gash as it glanced off the beast causing the dragon to rear up and roar in pain. Using the moment wisely, Leon scurried behind one of the two pillars toward the center of the room.

Havoc knew he had to get the beast's attention to give Leon more time to recover, thinking quickly he grabbed a stone that had worked loose from the wall sometime during the dragon's approach, and promptly hurled the stone at the dragon, hitting the beast square in the rib cage. The dragon quickly turned its attention to where the stone had come from, quickly placing Havoc in its sights and snapping its jaws and snorting menacingly. Havoc knew his weapons would be useless against the dragon, so as the dragon approached he made ready for his only available option. Just as the dragon drew back it's claws to swipe at the lonely warrior, Havoc disappeared from sight. Confusing the dragon once again, but also managing to anger it all the more, as evident from the extremely loud roar the beast let out as it turned his head to find another target.

All the while, Rhett had been maneuvering himself around the room trying to get a clear shot on the dragon without endangering his friends. The task was daunting to say the least, between the changing of directions and the beast's tail and wings getting in the way. Rhett called to Tie Guy, "Tie, get its attention, I need a clear shot!" Rhett knew what he asked of his friend, but knew his blessed stick maybe the only thing that stops the beast.

Tie Guy swallowed his fear and began yelling at the dragon, waiving his shield and sword in the air, trying to get its attention. The dragon, being very angry and needing a new target, needed little coaxing and began to charge towards Tie Guy who, by this time, realized he may not have thought this all the way through. "Uh, okay....now what!", He called to Rhett.

"Just hold on, I've almost got it", Rhett yelled back as he trained his stick on the beast and yelled the mystic word to activate the stick, "Yoink!"

The dragon faltered a bit, but seemed unhurt by the magical weapon, and continued it's charge on Tie Guy who raised his shield and prepared for the worst. The dragon swiped at Tie Guy bringing his claws to bare on the magic shield. Knocking both the shield and Tie Guy into the nearby wall, rendering Tie Guy unconscious, and sprawled on the stone floor.

The beast then quickly turned his attention to Rhett, who was still in shock after seeing his weapon do nothing and his friend being mauled as a result. The dragon swung his tail at Rhett, who was not expecting this turn of events, and hit him squarely in the chest hurling Rhett across the room and across the floor. Though in pain, Rhett was still conscious and attempting to get up. The beast turned, saw the weakened warrior and charged to finish Rhett off.

Leon had regained his composure and quickly worked to save his friends. Once again, he reached into the quiver selected an arrow and drew his bow back with all his might. This time, Leon took more time to aim, and released the arrow. Suddenly, the dragon stopped dead in his tracks, glanced back and with a quick flick of its tail deflected the arrow, redirecting it, to Leon's horror, straight towards Rhett who had no idea what was happening, and was still holding his head from the blow just moments earlier.

Just as the arrow was about to strike Rhett, a great shout was heard, "NOOOOOooooo!" Just then, the arrow stopped dead in the air. The tip disappeared, seemingly lodged in thin air. A slight grunt of pain was heard and the arrow fell to the ground. Suddenly, Havoc became visible on the ground at Rhett's feet, the arrow lodged deep in his chest.

The dragon had once again, turned his attention to a new target, Leon, who again ducked behind the pillar. Unfortunately, for him, pillar or no pillar, the dragon was set on killing its new target. The dragon swung madly at Leon, but only managed to strike the pillar, which gave to the immense strength of the giant beast. Stone began to rain down from the ceiling that the pillar, just a short while ago, was supporting. In the confusion, Leon managed to flee the flailing dragon and falling stone, and made his way to Rhett and the severely injured Havoc. To Leon's relief, Tie Guy was also rejoining the group, limping slowly, but alive nonetheless.

As the group was rejoined, the dragon began to shake the dust and rubble from it's body across the room, and slowly turn to face its adversaries.

Rhett spoke first, "It's no use, not even my blessed stick can harm it!" Leon nodded in solemn agreement.

Tie guy wasn't so quick to give up, "Didn't you see what happened when the dragon destroyed the pillar? There's only one more pillar left, if we take the last pillar out then we can bury that beast under tons of stone forever!"

Leon was first to point out the folly in the plan, "But we'll be buried as well!"

The dragon approached, slowly this time, not to underestimate its foes again. Hatred burning in its eyes, it was no longer playing around with its prey, it was out for blood.

Suddenly a weak voice was heard, it was Havoc, "Go!...Go the way... from whence the great beast came... I will stall...the dragon"

"But, you'll be killed!", exclaimed Tie Guy.

Havoc spat his reply through the blood on his lips, "JUST GO!! There's.. no time... Rhett?"

"Yes, Havoc", answered Rhett the sorrow becoming unbearable.

"Make sure you take out that pillar, don't you hesitate, whatever you do. I’m already as good as dead. You know that, right?”, Rhett nodded his answer, and Havoc continued quickly, “Remember? I was never supposed to be here, you were the three chosen. You have to survive to go on and destroy Viper", Havoc managed to get out between gasps for air, "Now help me up" The others helped Havoc to his feet, and then Havoc turned to Rhett one last time, handing Rhett his blade, "and Rhett, give my sword to my wife and tell her I love her dearly!"

With that, Havoc summoned up all his remaining strength and, unarmed, charged at the oncoming beast with a great battle cry. The dragon was taken back and did not know what to make of this new development. Meanwhile, the other three men quickly made their way to the great hall where the dragon had come from. After making it there, Rhett turned around, fighting back the tears, he raised his stick and aimed at the remaining pillar, and took one last moment to look at his friend, who at that moment was struck down by the dragon, who then had his way with the body. Rhett attempted to find solace in the fact that Havoc would already be dead when he buried him in stone and rock.

And as the dragon turned his attention to the other three men, the beasts jaws still dripped red with the blood of their fallen comrade, Rhett, without impunity, and for the first time, with pure contempt. Quietly, yet with the authority of a god, spoke the word of damnation on the beast, shattering the pillar of stone and causing tons of rubble, rock and dust to rain down on the beast. One large rock fell squarely on the dragon's head, as it tried to escape the falling stone, squashing it like a melon, as the rest of stone and rock came down burying the beast from view forever.

As the dust settled, the men reflected on what had just happened. There was no time to mourn, but each man swore they would avenge their friend’s death. Though the price was severe, that had won the battle. And now, more than ever, they knew they must defeat Viper or their comrade's death would be in vain.


May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be ever at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
And the rain fall softly on your fields
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the hollow of his hand

And the other promised chapter:

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

Chapter 22: A New Hope

Darkness floated over the battlefield. Sherack’s army retreated to the southern end of the field. The acolyte general gathered his army at the northern side of the field. Both armies took care of their wounded and builded up some strenght for a next strike.

“What are you? Cowards?”, the general cried, “I dare you, people of GeeBee, come and kill me!” The general waved his weapon, “In 2 hours the armies from the far north will be here. You shall be crushed and Viper will be your emperor!”

The general stood, his minions hissing behind him. The people from GeeBee know they could defeat those creatures, but the general would prevent them from doing that. They had 2 hours, then the northern armies would arrive. How to beat them, nobody knew. The dotcommers felt lost. All hope fled.

Rommel wiped a tear from his eye. He turned his back to the general and look toward his land, the land of Geebee. But when he looked at the mountain he saw a man standing there. A man dressed in a blue robe, his face hidden. He knew he’d seen the man before, but the battle made him forget a lot of things.

The man came down. He seemed to be alone and unarmed.

“Who are you?”, Rommel asked the lone stranger. The people of GeeBee turned to watch this blue robed man.

“Who am I? You’re sure you wanna know?”, the man threw his robe off so that everyone could see his face, “I’m Young David!

“Thank goodness you’re still alive. Alas that we meet again at such a tragic moment. We are defeated, Sherack Nhar has been slain, many soldiers died. In 2 hours our country is no more.” Rommel talked bravely, but one could feel that it felt hard on him.

“Why are you so certain of our loss?”

“Becau ...”

“Why?! Because you have forgotten. You have forgotten that we have allies, you have forgotten that the people of GeeBee will always be free, and ...” Young David let the tension build, “You have forgotten who I am!”

The crowd went silent. Who was he? Wasn’t Young David not a normal citizen like them? He was just a young man, or young ... How old was he? Everybody had known Young David all their life. He had always been there, but never seems to age.

“I think I need to apologize to you. You may have forgotten, but the weapon our enemy wields was not made by him. It was I, and I have come to correct my error.”

Young David paced through the crowd until he reached the battlefield, quickly followed by Rommel. “Wait, you can’t kill him all by yourself. You’re just one man. He’ll crush you like he crushed Sherack. Come to you’re senses.”

“Don’t worry,“ Young David waved him away as he stepped on the battlefield, “I know what I’m doing.”

The crowd stood still, another man would surely die. From the other side the General entered the battlefield with his might weapon in his hand. “So, you decided to die before we’d take you’re country, huh?” The general roared in laughter. Young David stood and put his hand in his pocket before he spoke.

“Koentra koma doma voeradal mana dung, groekie kwaado.”

Both armies stood perplex, that was the secret language of the ancient. Only a few could speak it. “He says that the general is gonna die today.”, someone from behind the GeeBee army said. People looked behind and saw a single man standing there. On top of the mountains they saw several parties of warriors coming down.

“Hey, don’t look at me like that. It’s my native tongue.”

Before people could ask who he was and where those warriors came from a cry came from the battlefield. It was the general who charged at Young David.

“Noma doma voersla Redwing” (“Nobody defeats the mighty Redwing”, the man translated.)

Redwing hewed at Young David, who evaded. Redwing charged past his target so that Young David could get something out of his pocket. It was an ordanairy rock. Before Redwing turned for another charge Young David threw the rock at the general.

Time seemed to have stopped. As guided trough the Spam the rock flew trough the air and hit Redwing square between the eyes. The general fell dead on the ground and a warcry sounded from the south.

“Chaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarge!”

It was Rommel who gave the order, echoed by the mysterious man so that also the warriors from the mountains came running down.

The creatures on the other side did not hesitate to do the same. Young David both saw the great armies coming his way and picked a sword of a fallen soldier from the ground and charged at defended the Tell you I will weapon with his life

A lot of free men lost their life on that battlefield. Many evil creatures were killed and the field was covered in red and green blood. In the end only a hundred men and a few spam captains with a handful of minions each surrounded Young David who still was defending the weapon.

One of the great Spam captains kicked Young David in the side so that he flew against a rock and lay motionless. “YD!”, cried the mysterious man and charged in on the captain piercing his armour and killing him in one blow.

The remaining soldiers of the spam army escaped to the mountains, knowing that they could not win anymore. Rommel sliced some in their escape before he ran to Young David.

Wraith 8, that was amazing”, Young David said. Some of the men tried to get Young David up, but he was wounded too much. “Let me rest here, I’ll live but I can’t fight anymore.”

Wraith 8 turned toward the remaining, small, army, “I think there needs to be some explaining here.” Wraith 8 turned to Young David for approval, Young David nodded.

“Well, I’m Wraith 8 and had a visit from Young David who called for reinforcements and then we ended up here.”

“Doesn’t explain everything to me”, Rommel said.

“Excuse him,” Young David replied, “I will tell you the complete story.”

Young David started telling how he and Tiedefender got lost from the group while looking for reinforcements. It appeared they were just outside town when they met Wraith 8 near the Forummy Lake. Wraith 8 appeared to be from the same order of ancient Wizzards as Young David so the long lost friends hugged and promised to help each other.

“He said he had some friends that could help out. So we travelled all over the country to find new warriors to join our battle. Many of them have died, but some of them need still an introduction.”

Young David pointed to some of the men around him. “You all know Tiedefender ofcourse. Next to him is Wraith 5, Wraith 8's cousin. We have Jedi_Masta over there flanked by Dash Rendar and those two ladies are STTCT and SharaFett.”

When Young David introduced them they put off their warrior masks and revealed their female face. Many were surprised that these two ladies survived the battle.

"But what shall we do with the Tell You I will weapon?" Wraith 8 asked.

"The Weapon of the enemy is a gift," said Jedi_Masta "Let us use it against him!"

"No!" Rommel replied, "You cannot wield it, none of us can."

"Fate brought the weapon in our hands!"Young David sat upright and looked around to the company. Their were only around 50 men left, including the two women.

“I believe it is our fate to be here,” Young David spoke with authority, “It is our destiny. I believe that this night holds for each and everyone of us the very meaning of our lives. This is a war and we are soldiers. What if tomorrow the war could be over. Isn't that worth fighting for? Isn't that worth dying for?”

“The war is over”, someone said.

“No, it isn’t”, Rommel replied. “Two hours have past. The northern army could be here any second.”

Just as Rommel spoke a dark cloud came over the company. All around them the minions of Viper could be seen. They were surrounded in a big circle with the army of the north taunting them from every side.

A tall captain raised his sword and pointed it to the survivors of the battle.

“Chaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarge!”


He ho to the bottle I go
To heal my heart and drown my woe
rain may fall and wind may blow
but there still be many miles to go

Sweet is the sound of the pouring rain
and the stream that falls from hill to plain
Better than rain or rippling brook
is a mug of beer inside this Took
