Tournament of Thieves: ch 1

Lauren Christine

i dunno if i like this story or to dreams and dragons... maybe i'll write both... i dunno, tell me what 'ya like! IT WOULD BE BENEFICIAL TO YOU TO E-MAIL ME WITH A REQUEST FOR A GUIDE SO THAT IT MAKES A LITTLE MORE SENSE!!! but here are some basic explanations that you can refer to at any point in time. some things that may help: thieves deck- a thief guild has 52 members that are each represented by their own card in a playing card deck. The highest ranking are Aces, and it goes down. Each of the suites are also signs of rank, in the Ninth Deck guild the diamonds are the highest ranking suit, then hearts, then spades, then clubs. For example, the ace of diamonds is the guild master, the next in rank is the ace of hearts, then the ace of spades, then the ace of clubs, then the king of diamonds, etc the various gates: The Diamond Gate- The Diamond gate is the entrance to the Diamond district, which is the cities capital. Thieves regard the Diamond District as fair game, as far as they are concerned, the people who live in that district are rich and thieves generally consider them to have more then enough, thus making the Diamond district an acceptable place to steal from. The Ruby Gate- The Ruby gate is the entrance to the Ruby district, or, Artisans district. The Ruby district is not visited by thieves, their code forbids them to steal from those who make their goods with their own hands and live off their own workmanship. The Emerald Gate- The Emerald gate is the entrance to the Emerald district, which is on the coast and is a port city. The thieves view towards the Emerald district is; sailors get drunk and get drunk and sleep with all the tavern maids. As thieves generally look down upon drinking, and wenching, they have no problems relieving the ships of some of their cargo. The Sapphire Gate- The Sapphire gate is the entrance to the Sapphire district, or the Military District. The thieves’ opinion toward stealing from the Sapphire district is generally that if you are good enough to get away with stealing in there, then have at it, however, it is rare that a thieves visit the Sapphire district, mostly Aces, or other bored guild members that are too good to be caught. The Garnet Gate- The Garnet gate is the entrance to the Garnet district, but is more commonly known as the Thieves’ district. The Thieves’ district is the one place that the guards cannot arrest a thief, nor are guards permitted to be stationed at the entrances. The Thieves’ district houses the three guilds and all free lance thieves. If a thief steals from another thief, and is caught, the thief doing the stealing is forever banned from the Thief district. The Pearl Gate- The Pearl gate is the entrance to the Pearl district, or the Merchants’ district. The Pearl gate is not exempt from thieves, as they figure that merchants usually cheat other people, it’s only fair if you cheat them right back. The Amber Gate- The Amber gate is the entrance to the Amber District. The poorer to middle class lives in the Amber district. This district is also not visited by thieves, as the people living in it have nothing to be stolen that they do not need. The Topaz Gate- The Topaz gate is the entrance to the Topaz district, or the Farmers District. It is on the outskirts of the Nine Gates, and is by far the largest district, hosting large farms. Thieves will only steal from the Topaz district if there has been a good harvest and there are crops to spare. The Amethyst Gate- The Amethyst gate is the entrance to the Amethyst district, or the Religious District. The Religious district is where all the temples and churches reside, and is easily one of, if not the most, beautiful district. The thieves have no prefaces on this district. It’s a bit of a personal thing; if you feel alright steeling from a temple, then go ahead. If you don’t, no harm done. that should help some, any aditional questions you have, just e-mail me!

Encounter with a Dragon

Ginger

What an unfortunate happening.

Ch. 1

Aubrey Walters

This is the the first chapter of 12 Swords, which I am so excited to have finally retyped. I don't want to tell every thing because i feel a reader should make conections between the prologue of a story, not the writer telling them whats what. But if you can't tell by reading this, yes the four major characters from the prologue are at least mentioned in this chapter. Oh and my favorite of favorite characters is in this one. (Sorry for the misspellings and rambling, it's really late for me).

This is a story that I have just begun with the help of my good friend Damien. So far as the story tells an evil is woke.. a cursed knight bound on taking revendge on those who put him in such a prision and ready to take up where he left off with the conquering of the land around him. Faith.. a merchant's daughter awakes to find her whole world has been turned upside down and shook. Her family is dead and her only chance is a stranger that just happened apon the wreak, and who just happens to be her worst nightmare.. in a sense. A murder takes place in the main castle and the plot thickens.. I think this story MAY have potential.. I have certainly had fun writing it so far.. but it's only in the very beginning of the story.. comments and constructive critisism are welcome. ^_^ hope you enjoy

Three Ivory Arrows - Ch2

Lauren Blewett

Ascov is a country that has been ravaged by civil war and terrorism, its people caught up in the fight for the crown. The Book of Blood has told the next Ruler who they were for over ten centuries. But fifteen years ago, a problem arose. The pages dictating who would next claim the throne mysteriously dissapeared. Diplomats and lords aren't enough to hold the dying country together anymore, and unless someone finds the pages...

A Tale of Tales Ch. 3: Angel Of Justice

Melissa Jensen

Here is Joen's next story, one that just might get him out of the trouble he is in with Moren and his gang. I'm sorry to say you may be left hanging a little until chapter four. I did this to save space, because the chapter ended up longer than I thought. Any way, this new story of Joen's is a little less pleasent than his first (and a little longer).
