The Dark Library #21


?Please see to it that you give this old tome to the Head Librarian.? Said an old man mumbling as he walked away from the head librarian?s assistant. Puzzled by the events the assistant went to the lobby to greet the head librarian who was having an audience with some visitors to the library.

Greetings everyone and welcome to the next installment of The Dark Library this week we begin… ?Sorry to interrupt Head Librarian but I have a book for you from an old Archivist. He wanted me to give this to you it seemed important.? The assistant handed over the book. ? ?Bane: Hero of the North?, an interesting old story. I thought this was long lost when we were fixing up one of the library’s run-down wings.” Sorry for the interruptions everyone I have a new book to show you along with a new chapter of The Key by Tamrend. Lets begin shall we.

Let?s start this week with the first chapter of this old lost tome called Bane: Hero of the North by DiabloWikiBane. Here?s the first paragraph of the chapter.

    Bane lifts his head wearily over the hill and spots the encampment below while making slow movements forward, towards the group like a lioness on the hunt. He counts only one fire that meant that the force that dwelled besides the trail that led between the two villages of Kath-Amor and Nath-San was smaller than what the rider in the village had said to him the day before. He had been told that the mad wizard Kem-Moth had gathered a large group of men and were preparing to march on the city soon. In great haste Bane was sent forth to scout Kem-Moth’s movements by his employer Konrad.

Over the last few weeks I had recieved word that Tamrend has been writing more for his story The Key and I just received the latest chapter called Chapter 22: Steel and Thunder. Here everyone allow me to read a little bit for you.

    The spongy ground was not conducive to stomping. Rather than a satisfying clop, Shael’s boots were just as likely to slosh up to their ankles. She quickly moderated her footfalls, but the stubborn set of her jaw and the bristle that had crept into her back at hearing lieutenant Astin’s pronouncement to her remained. No doubt Alain thought he was doing the noble thing. Arrogant prig.

    The fog had begun to clear shortly after daybreak, though thin wisps still clung to the edges of trees and hovered over pools of brackish water. The day had passed uneventfully, the only attacks coming from the horde of biting insects that filled the air. Now, daylight was rapidly fading, and men hurried to put what little light remained to good use.

That is all I have for you this week everyone. Next week I’ll share another chapter from the story of Bane: Hero of the North and from the tome; Lost Creatures & Cultures of Sanctuary as well as some more stories in the library. Don?t forget to put out your torch at the door and leave the wood piece in the collection bin.

The Head Librarian watched as the guests left; setting there thinking about the Archivist. “I don’t think that will be the last time we hear from him.”

Next week we will bring you more from the fan fiction community in the same conveniently posted bitesize format as well as some works from fan monster and fan class creators. If you have made fan fiction that has not yet been posted in the Diablo fan fiction forum, or just got inspired to do so, head over there and post your material, or ask questions to other fan writers regarding lore, writing style or other input. See you next week!

  1. Well, everyone who’s up in arms about Exploding Palm can relax. The blood explosion is the animation for a different death type, and is actually not blood, but not particularly well rendered lava or some such. There will be a single kill animation for EP that is generic enough for all creatures.
