View Full Version : DWIII - 3D - Zelenkov - "Burdalak"

Hi everyone. I went through a lot of ideas and now I think I finally found what I want:

Race: Human.

Class: Invoker.

Element: Fire/Lava.

A skilled smith in his youth and an apprentice to a Master Smith, Burdalak led a life of heavy duty. His artistic mind crated exotic weapons everyday and his master was proud. Burdalak was also able to tame and weild fire. Wagic coursed through his veins. Every year his power doubled and grew, until he was able to smelt and sculpt metal in his bear hands. And every night, after a warm meal, his master told him legends and myths about steel and gears,called machines - robots, living like people. Tales about how life was much better and more advanced than this current world.

One day his master left for a town to gather news and supplies. In his master's absence, the apprentice learned, explored nearby lands, caves and soon came up on a flourishing medium sized volcano. Erupting with lava, rage and colossal fury of fire, magma exploded every now and then with molten rocks. He wondered around the molten lake untill an enourmous explosion set two lava rocks of equal size flying into the open.The young crafter soon saw an idea and opportunity in this. Burdalak would craft a truly furious armor from metal and infuse it with these marvelous rocks to enpower his mastery of fire, and make his master proud upon the his return.

But neither master nor the news of him came. Weeks went by. Burdalak became weary and decided to travel to the town and find out what happened. When he got to the town, he saw many buildings/hospitals housing and bringing in the dead and wounded. In front of the town center there was a large stone tablet with names. The names of the fallen in combat in the recent attack of the newly arisen machines. It didn't take long for Burdalak to find his master's name on it. "So, the legends and tales were true. They did exist! And the effects of the ultimate weapon are wearing off!"

Burdalak was mad! He was mad at the world, at its people... but most of all at the machines! In his rage he raced to the volcano field, found his armour in lava and gloriously clad himself in it. His rage and fury burst his veins open with fire and he was truly unstopable. The mashines would meet their end at his hand!

Feel free post your thoughts and critisism about this.
