This is actually a semi-tragic short story concept that I came up with in a day. Surprise, I didn't come up with all of it. This whole thing was inspired by a game I found whilst milling 'round on Roblox, a game called Globelore. The admins at Jalpro did a damn good job with all the lore to this game, and seeing as it's entirely developed in such a small outlet, it's pretty damn cool as a whole. So I spent a little too much time daydreaming about my characters in some weird situations and decided to put finger to keyboard in Google Docs first chance I got. -Does contain some swearing and violence, but only during the fight scene. -I do not claim ownership of Globelore, only the characters Priscilla and Crel. They're the only characters I actually came up with. The rest (except for Kali, who was just a throwaway named character) as well as the lore, and world in which the story takes place is under original creation ownership of the admins at Jalpro. You can check out their wiki on the stuff here: http://globelore.wikia.com/wiki/GLOBELORE_(RP) (I twisted the lore a tiny bit here and there for comical effect, but it still belongs to Jalpro.) Enjoy the read. It's not some world-renowned epic, it's just a short story I decided to write for the hell of it. *spoilers in this part if you want to read the story first* About halfway through, I ran across a dilemma. I could a) choose to keep both characters alive and leave out on a happier note or b) go with a more tragic note, which I've basically never done before. So I went with the latter. This is a learning experience for me. The actual moral of this story isn't to try and show off some characters I came up with. I'm trying to use them here to portray the folly of paranoia, greed, and rage, but at the same time, make an example of the power of forgiveness. The greatest rift can be bridged if both parties wish for it to be.
