Dark Isle Saga 'Rise Of The Damned' Before I start chapter 2, I will be running this little sub chapter which will explore the stories of a few key character's that will appear in chapter 2.
About this creation
The land is changing. All that once was, now becomes a distant memory. Isn't it strange how people go about their daily business, complaining about life in general but then when things really do turn bad they wish more than anything to go back to their old life!
The darkness spreads, cloaking all of Avalonia who's people have now fled deep into the Mystic Isles. The true extent of the Evil has only just begun to show its color's as it searches for the ancient scroll. The remaining people of Avalonia had known something bad was coming, they waited with baited breath and tried to get on with life as usual but with each day their hopes diminished. But not all.

Two young Avalonians had found the scroll and were now embarked on a quest to destroy it and fight back against the Evil that plighted the land. With the aid of a resistance of loyal warrior's they now fight to turn the tide. However, it is still early days and the enemy is hell bent on capturing the Scroll at any cost, laying waste to the villages, towns and settlements of the Dark Isle, they will not stop!

And so as Taryn, Sarlina, Owain, Ella and Artorious begin to fight back, elsewhere, the enemy now marches and spreads death and destruction throughout the land. It seems no one is safe.

The village of Shadow Marsh lies to the east of Grim Hollow. It is a small village, made up of only a few houses and traders but these have been quiet as of late due to the growing fear that grips the land. Cragspire Cottage is one of those houses, home to Hastan and his son Gawaine. Hastan was a hunter by trade and made a good living from selling many fine pelts. He had high hopes for his young son Gawaine, who was very bright and blessed with such a skill of the sword that even the Gods themselves would envy them.




It was a dreary morning and Gawaine awoke to the sound of his father humming to himself from outside as he stripped down a fresh pelt. Feeling hungry, Gawaine got dressed and decided to head into the village for breakfast. His father greeted him as he came out through the door.

"Morning son" said Hastan cheerfully. "Got anything planned for today have we?"

"Just off into town to get some breakfast." replied Gawaine sheepishly, "then I thought I might go and practice swords with Gwen and Dagonet." he yawned and gestured towards the town.

"Ok, however I may need you later on to help me take a cart load of pelts to Gwynedd's Holdings." smiled Hastan.

"Don't worry, I'm sure I'll be back in time for that" grinned Gawaine. Then made towards the town. As Gawaine was leaving, another figure appeared from the other side of the house and headed towards Hastan.







Hastan looked up as the figure approached. He was dressed in full armor, dyed with a black pitch and bore an insignia that Hastan did not recognize. Hastan stood up and went forward to great the mysterious figure.

"Greetings Sir, how may I help you? Have you lost your way?" Asked Hastan kindly.

The dark figure just stared back with cold eyes.





Hastan felt uneasy and was about to turn away, when suddenly the dark figure drew his sword. Hastan shouted but his cries were soon cut short as the dark figure buried his sword up to the hilt in Hastan's stomach. The dark figure grinned as he watched Hastan sink to the ground with a look of shock and terror on his face.

Gawaine had heard his fathers faint shout and hurried back to the house where he crept round the corner to see what was going on.





Gawaine stared in horror at what lay before his eyes. The dark figure pulled his sword from Hastan's lifeless body which then slipped down to the floor. Gawaine could feel a raging anger building inside him and wanted to charge out and attack the dark figure but he held his ground. Gawaine was not stupid, he was unarmed and wounded by grief, he knew he would be no match for this black armor clad demon. He watched on, helpless.

The dark figure stood over Hastan's dead body, raised his sword and shield to the sky and let out a triumphant battle cry, then turned and ran on towards the rest of the village.





Gawaine rushed towards his father, knelt down and cradled him in his arms. No life shone in Hastan's kind eyes, nor would they again. More screams began to sound from the village and Gawaine looked up to see more dark figures running towards it. His eyes were blinded by tears but he knew what was happening, Shadow Marsh was under attack, but why?





Its amazing how time seems to slow to a crawl in these moments, as your mind try's to take in everything that has just happened. A few seconds seems to last an eternity. Gawaine was overcome with grief but he knew time was short and he must react to secure his own survival. He carried his fathers body inside the house, took up his fathers dagger and swore vengeance. He knew the village would fall and there was nothing he could do to save it but he also knew he had friends in that village and was not prepared to see them suffer the same fate as his father.

Fight or flight?....Both! Head towards the village to save his friends, then flee to find help and safety...where ever that could be!

Quoting Alex Sonny Love the cottage design, but the door could be a bit smaller, it makes the figures look like hobbits :D
Thing is, one of Gawaine's friend's is 6'8 and kept banging his head, so they made it bigger. :)

I like your cartoon approach, the tree leaves are a bit extreme, but, it looks like it s frozen, Dr freeze is really pitiless, lol.

I am consistently blown away by your creations.

Incredible! The only thing I'm not a fan of is the painted leaves, I just don't like the color. It really detracts from the otherwise perfect color scheme. I would be fine if they were a more similar color to the normal turquoise. :)

Quoting Gilbert Despathens I like the new techniques you used on the upper floor, especially the dowels for timbers, but the colors are a little odd. The blue motif creates a nice effect nonetheless, although I don't recognize the patches in the ground as anything that exists in the real world. What inspired you to go for this new look? Also, have you ever considered inverting your sloped wall design so the bricks lean out?
Thanks! One of the reasons I am doing this off-shoot is so I can use this unique color scheme. I'm going for a more haunted/creepy/marsh/mist/cartoon style, like a Disney look, with trees with scary faces in them etc. Really felt like stepping away from usual greens. Yes I have been playing about with leaning the walls outwards as well as some other new ideas. I test them out for a while until they are perfected, then I use them in mocs. So expect to see some coming soon. Many thanks

Wow! Interesting blues in this build. I also really like the scarecrow, as simple as it is. And as always, your walls are the best of any moccers! --Blast--
