  1. A dribble drops, a tentacle carrier clops, Leviathan laps from a puddle and a green fungus....well, exists. A fine green mushroom lives in the middle of the Sea Tramps lair doing absolutely nothing but emitting dim green light. It has lived here for ages, decomposing dead animals: spiders, anemones and corals, thus keeping the cave soil nutritious. For the creatures of the lair, it's like a beacon of life in the midst of the oppressive darkness. However, for the....wait! What is that noise? Shouting and chanting can be heard from the entrance of the lair. The green fungus can already feel the approaching threat, a threat that feels like a scorching branding iron that keeps coming closer and closer to skin, whizzing and hissing loudly while burning the fur. Who are they? What do they want? Oh, the lid of the first hatch is already being opened, its clatter is strident! How are they so fast? The green fungus must do something as it's in a great danger. It starts to produce spores, filled with the deadliest of poisons, ready to be launched into the air. Let's hope that they will do the job. Clanging of armors and screeching of dying spiders can be heard straight from above. The moment is coming closer. For a short time, a deep silence descends. The woodlice around the green fungus seem relatively calm but even their nervousness can be felt. Everything is staying still and nothing is happening. Suddenly, a tall warrior with golden armor comes down the ladders. He has a gigantic hammer in his hands and around him there is a shining aura of light that illuminates the whole cavern. The green fungus pales in front of the warrior's radiance, looking weak and miserable but it's still fully prepared to fight, holding its poisonous spores tightly in its gills, ready to unleash them at once when that warrior comes close enough. But....the warrior didn't come alone! Four other people come after the shining warrior and follow him when he walks forwards and shortens the gap between him and the green fungus. The fungus doesn't have any chances, at least not against five highly trained warriors but still it must try, even though it might not succeed. Now, the time has come! The green fungus releases its spores, a murky green cloud rises into the air and forms an opaque veil leaving the paladin inside it. Heavy coughing can be heard from the middle of the poisonous cloud....maybe the green fungus will succeed....maybe....oh, the paladin swung his hammer and smashed the poor mushroom into pieces! So, is it dead? Is this the end of this wondrous creature? Of course it's not! Everyone knows that fungi are much more than just sporocarps. The green fungus is actually a huge creature which exists in every tunnel and hole of the Sea Tramps lair and killing it is definitely not an easy task. But what about the paladin and the other warriors? Well, fortunately that foolish paladin messed up with the woodlice and he and his whole party died. This means that there is once again new corpses that the green fungus can decompose, making the cave soil again slightly more nutritious and better place for all kinds of different creatures to grow in.

  2. Non-class skill books are expert skill books which any class can use. Although, unlike ordinary expert skill books, these skill books can not be upgraded. Most of them grant only small improvements but few of them are actually quite powerful. At the moment, there are 33 non-class skill books, 31 of which are passive and two that are active. Only requirements to use these books are character level 18 and empty expert skill slot. These books can be obtained by killing raid bosses, participating in guild events and completing dungeons during seasonal special events. Some books can also be obtained from physical chests that require special keys. Non-class skill books are more than rare but they are also worth of millions which means that if you ever happen drop one and sell it, you won't have to worry about gold for a while.

If you don't need this book, you can sell it to NPC and receive 10000 gold. Book "Gladiator's Resilience" Increases character's "resilience" parameter by 5% for 1800 seconds (30 minutes). Type: Active Energy expense: 50 units Cooldown: 60 seconds Drops from: Gladiator's Chests (arena chest) Notes: This book is personal which means that it can't be given to other players. If you don't need this book, you can sell it to NPC and receive 10000 gold. If you drop one of the passive skill books, you must decide, will you use it, sell it or trade it. It all depends on how much gold you really need. Everyone needs gold but do you feel like you are weak and can never buy any proper equipment due to the lack of gold? If so, then you should sell it as 2,5% stun or 3% critical hit chance won't really make you any stronger but good armor and weapon will. If you already have decent gear and you are not in the constant need of gold but your gear isn't +10, then you should think, will the book raise some parameter that you really need or can you even use the book properly? For example, Rampant Attack might not be the best choice for a druid and Secret Power of Vampirism might not be the most useful book for a character with 3500 hp. If the book is useful, then you can use it but if it's not, then you could either sell it for gold or trade it for more suitable book. This is the end of this guide! I hope this will be useful at least for the winner of this contest.
  3. The fragrance of incense wafted in stuffy air of thin tunnels and corridors. I wandered towards it fumbling walls of seemingly endless halls. The smell was fairly familiar, sweet and iron. It was the smell of my own blood after all. We prepare our incenses from flour made of dried blood. They help us to navigate in these complex tunnel systems. Everyone of us have our own unique incenses, all of them with an unique fragrance. The smell led me through winding pits and low rivers. Finally, my abortive eyes sensed a gleam of dim light. I entered my chamber full of the smell of incense. I handled rune stones hanging on a wall trying to find one specific...yes, here it is. It was the Depth Seal, a stone with a rune depicted on it, very delicately carved and full of magic power. It was the end result of years of experiments and tests. It was the most demanding works of mine and now it was finally completed. I informed about the success of my work to others of this vole colony. My plan must work, there's no other options. If we don't gain the trust of the termites with this, our colony won't last long. There are lesser of us every day. The cave worms we eat have become much rarer nowadays due to a lethal disease spreading in these tunnels. The disease affects our cubs as well. I, Chrotorr, the chief and shaman of this colony, will do everything to keep this settlement alive. I traveled to the borders of the termite tribe. The termite guards stopped me and asked why I was there and what I wanted. I told them that I was supposed to meet the queen of the termites but this time I had something that she couldn't have even dreamed of. The guards guided me to her Majesty's chamber. I kneeled before the queen and said: "Your Majesty, my Queen, I know that the termite tribe isn't doing well just like my tribe. It's due to a disease caused by poisonous liquid dribbling from the catacombs of the dead elves. If we wish to survive, we have to rise to the surface, to the lands of the lizardmen. There we can build a mound as large as needed. Though, the lizardmen won't allow us to come to their lands so we have to take it from them by force." Since the queen started to look more interested, I continued: "I have created a powerful rune, the Depth Seal. It can be used to mine large networks of tunnels only in hours. With its help we can start our attack from any place we want. In return for my help I only demand your throne." The queen looked a bit surprised but still she let me continue: "As you can see, only I can control the rune, and to ensure our victory, I must control the army of the termites as well. This is the only way, both, my tribe and your tribe, can survive." After listening to my offering the queen considered and considered it until she finally replied: "So be it, chief Chrotorr, I will give you my throne if you promise to ensure my tribes survival. From now on, you are the Lord of Depth." So, the first part of my plan was completed. Now I only had to figure out how can we conquer the lands of the lizardmen. I walked to my newly acquired throne. It was beautifully carved right on gray stone. Its armrests and back rest was illuminated by three blue fires and from behind the throne organlike pipes were rising towards the ceiling of the hall. I sat on it and pressed the Depth Seal on my chest. It felt as if the earth itself was subjugated on my will. Stones yielded me and bowed me and new tunnels started to appear one by one. Soon it started to look as if roots of a tree were growing upwards instead of downwards. This creation would become the new termitary. I sent a group of termite scouts to the borders of the capital of the lizardmen to find out what was their weak spot. Two days later one of the scouts came back to me and reported that they had spied Amok, the chief of the lizardmen, and found out about his endeavours of achieving immortality since he wanted to rule his empire for ever and not to give power to his only son whom he didn't love. These news evoked ardor in me. We could indeed give him some kind of immortality if he agreed to give his son to us. I instantly started preparing a spell which could be used to travel to other people's dreams. When the night came, I fell in a trance and walked to Amok in the dream world. He didn't notice me so I whispered: "The gods have heard your prayers. I, the Lord of the Depth, shall grant thee thine immortality which thou have dreamed of for so long. For the payment, I require only your firstborn. The earth will open before you when you wake up. Take your son with you and come to my kingdom. There we will perform a ritual and you will live as long as you wish." Even though the chief didn't notice me, he looked as if he had agreed. The progression of my plan gave hope for the vole colony. How ironic, just when we were planning to conquer the lands of the lizardmen, their chief comes here and gives their lands for almost free. He clearly doesn't understand that by giving his only son, he gives us the rights to his empire. Basically, I will become the leader of everyone, the voles, the termites and the lizardmen. While the Pontifex of the termites was preparing the sacrificial ceremony for the firstborn of chief Amok, I was carving the vow stones. They will be used as signatures for our contract, they will be our legitimate justification for the land of the lizardmen. Chief Amok arrived to my domain. His son was taken away by the termite priests and moved to the ritual chamber. I took Amok's crown and carved magical runes on it giving him the promised immortality. "Both of us have now kept our vows", I said, and chief Amok nodded satisfiedly. But when he was leaving, I ordered the termite guards to capture him. Even though I hadn't broken my vow, I felt like a traitor. Nonetheless, I have to keep my promise to the queen and to my tribe or else I will be eaten alive and the vole colony will die. Now, we will just have to wait for the right moment to reclaim the surface land belonging to us and my tribe can finally start to revive. Kuusipuu, EU-Emerald
  4. Katrina, that lady in grief, thrown into a dungeon, imprisoned in sorrow, abadoned in misery, waiting for her baron still with a strong belief. Maybe I can bring you some joy. Reminisce the gleam of candles, the fragrance of marigolds, the sound of guitars and all those colourful mantles. But all these blisses, unobtainable for you, would just be your fall and lead you to the darkness. Cry and you shall cope, mourn and you shall survive and for the sake of me, never touch the rope.

  5. It was dark and stormy night. I was sitting in the tavern ”Jolly Skull” preparing new arrows for my bow. ”248, 249 and 250! This should be enough for some time.” The innkeeper Arrax came to my table and said: ”Here is your travelling porridge, sir.” ”What? I haven’t ordered anything!” I told. ”Not you but the gentleman standing near the door”, he answered. Indeed, there was some suspicious man wearing a purple robe showing me to come outside. I put the porridge into my bag and went outside to see what that weird chap wanted from me. The man took off his hood. ”Barker! Is that you?” I said with a surprised tone. Barker had a serious look in his face. He said: ”Things aren’t going very well right now. A new evil has appeared and is now threatening the annual Horror Circus.” A dubious look in my face I asked: ”Is there again some kind of boogeyman or – SWOOOSH! A huge wave from the sea swept through the Red Dock soaking me completely. ”Hahahaha!” I heard someone laughing. ”Who laughed at me? Was it really that funny?" I shouted. ”Sir, there’s no one else here”, Barker said. ”Then who just laughed?” I asked. ”That’s the evil I came to tell you about. Though, we haven’t been able to discover what kind of evil we are talking about right now. My master, Sam Hain, has heard that creature’s laugh and voice in his dreams recently, saying: ´I am coming for you!´ The creature doesn’t really seem to like my master at all for some reason. As I said, we have done everything to find out where the creature came from and what it even is but all in vain. It seems like the creature isn’t even from this world but from the world of the dead”, Barker explained. ”But why are you telling this to me and not someone else?" I asked. ”Because you have good relations with the Faceless, the god of death”, Barker answered. ”We want you to ask him about the evil creature. He might know something about it.” I walked to the Black Pyramid to meet the Faceless. The moon was shining beautifully in the night sky. I climbed the stairs up to see if the Priest of the Faceless was there but he had gone somewhere. I entered the pyramid but something was wrong. Slaves nor the overseers didn’t even look at me. Tarantulas were hiding in their holes and ghosts had vanished somewhere. When I entered the palace of the Faceless, I only saw Faceless’ robe and crown lying on the ground but nothing else. ”Here!” someone whispered. One of the High Priests of the Faceless was hiding behind a stone pillar. ”What has happened here?” I asked. ”An evil creature came from the underworld without my master’s permission. He was so powerful that my master couldn’t resist him and now my master is in some kind of coma”, the priest told. ”How can someone defeat a god?” he wondered. ”But what that creature actually was?” I asked. ”That creature was a demon created from Garahan’s blood and formed during the War of the Spear. He is the most powerful demon Garahan ever created and it was used in a battle against the Heavenly Brothers. Harad and Nuadu somehow managed to defeat him after Garahan and banished him to the underworld where he had been till this day. He wasn’t trying to escape from there until one day he felt that his master was being threatened by someone. From that moment he started to gather strength and is now ready to avenge to the one who almost killed his master”, the priest explained. ”But won’t he just leave after the revenge?” I asked. ”I don’t think so”, the priest answered. ”He hates the Heavenly Brothers and everything resembling them as well, in other words, everything with human or elf face. He is powerful enough to destroy you all”, he explained. Everything the priest just told me made me feel very uneasy. I had to go to the Horror Circus and tell Sam Hain everything I had just heard as fast as possible since there wasn’t much time left. I took a teleportation scroll from my bag and read everthing written on it aloud. Suddenly, I was in the Horror Circus. I ran to the Sam Hains place and told him everything the priest had just told me. ”Oh, that explains everything. If you remember, I tried to kill Garahan five years ago. And now that demon wants to kill me to avenge that!” Sam Hain said with a worried tone. ”We have to strengthen our defences”, Sam Hain said with a bit more confident voice. Sam Hain and I were walking on the shores of the island directing where the defences should be placed. Sam Hain guided his assistants: ”You, put that pumpkin cannon there and fill it with the – BATAMM! A lighting struck, whole sky lit up and then I saw it. A siluet of a tremendous creature with a pair of huge wings filled the sky. It approached us slowly but surely. No one let even a single sound. When it landed on ground, I saw it clearly. Its wings were full of spikes, it had few pairs of horns in its head, it had a sword sheath on its waist and its whole body was black and it emitted deadly darkness killing everything it touched. The demon was looking us with its red eyes and soon after it stared only Sam Hain. Suddenly, the demon pulled out his sword from the sword sheath. The sword was a beautiful black saber with a complex desing. Against all expectations, the demon cut its own arm and black blood was flowing to the ground. The earth was screaming like it was being tortured by the most horrible ways. The earth opened and myriads of lesser demons were crawling out of there. They were all black just like their master. Some of them were bigger and some smaller but all of them were equally terrifying. Finally someone shouted: ”Retreat! Retreat!” Everybody were running back to the main town but not all of them managed to survive. The lesser demons were chasing us until we reached the gates of the Circus. I ran to Sam Hain and shouted at him: ”We must gather the legions of all factions here as soon as possible!” Sam Hain nodded silently and said: ”I will send an emergency message to all rulers of Arinar. They must send their best warriors to help us with the battle against the demon or Arinar will turn into a dead wasteland.” Kuusipuu - EU-Emerald
