    Default writing a Biography

    Hopefully this is the right Forum. I'm currently writing a Biography for my Teir'Dal Inquisitor Tibanna. I would like to post the pre beta version here so you can comment on it.

    Its 6:45 am here so pls dont be too harsh :P I know it has many faults since i am not an native speaker so pls bear with it for a moment. Im to sleepy to make this easy corrections now

    Erm is there somewhere an time calculatior? i.e. i enter 20.nov 2006 and it says me what this date was in the ingame timeline?



    so here is it:


    ----------------------------


    Tibanna Vilrath,

    born 3674 in the Times of Rendering as the Heir of House Virath in Neriak. Showing early promising Skill as a priestess of innoruuk she was send 3711 together with her brother Alarn with a Raiding Party to the surface. They were a group of 20 teir'Dal who was stealthy approaching a Village in Qeynos Hills when the Shattering occurred. The Day when luclin died.

    A Flash of Light even too bright for the Light dwelling races stabbed the Sky and throw the teir'Dal in Confusion, those who couldn't close their Eyes in Time were instantly blinded. Seizing their good fortune some of the remaining Darkelfs choose this advantage to be rid of an Rival with a quick stab of the Dagger.

    Rescued by her brother Alarn , they both stumbled alone away from the Battle knowing they had rivals too who would gladly kill some members of House Vilrath. 2 days they covered in a cave until the earthquakes started. Pieces of Luclin fell to Norrath and ripped apart the geographics.


    Knowing they werent save under the earth they traveled through the Storms to nektulos Forrest hoping to find shelter with their kin. Days later they arrived only to see that every Teir'Dal settlement was destroyed and the Entrance to Neriak was gone. Silently praying that the earthquakes reopened the passage through the Fallen gate they made their way to the Commonlands.


    Sadly the fallen gate was still hunted by undeads and worse and still hold no connection to Neriak.
    Seeking the passage from Commonlands to Darklight Wood they traveled through the commonlands until they met a Human outpost called the Crossroads. Strange enough there were Teir'Dal among them. In the night Alarn slipped through the Guards unnoticed. Luckily he found a drunken Human snoring in a dark Corner. With a thud of his Sword handle he ensured he wouldn't awake to cry out an Alarm. He shouldered his Victim and silently returned to Tibanna.


    The Humon proved to be usefull in three ways:
    First, he knew about the Cataclysmn. There was no known connection left to Neriak and even more lands couldn't be reached anymore. Faydwer, Kurna and the desert of Ro for example. He told them since Neriak and many other Homelands couldn't be reached anymore the Overlord Lucan D'Lere opened the Freeport gates for everyone of the „evil“races.
    Second, he was wealthy. Gold could be used in many Ways and it was never bad to hame some.
    Third, he told them he lived alone..... So it was a good guess that nobody would miss him.


    After they killed the Human they decided to part their ways for a Time and make a living in Freeport until they could find a way back to Neriak.




    Some Years past while Tibanna was growing stronger and wealthier. Now a Inquisitor of Innoruuk, a zealot of hate. Finally a way back to Neriak was discovert. Finally she contacted Alarn who had become a mighty Shadowknight in the meantime, and went with him home.


    So she thought. She learned at her arrival that not everything had survived the Shattering many Houses were weakened and thus resulting in an hidden war in Neriak had destroyed some of the Houses altogether. House Vilrath was one of them.


    Knowing she could either succumb to this or could make her own House, the way was clear. But to form a House was something only the mightiest and wealthiest could do. So she and her Brother walk Norrath to collect Money, Mighty and mortal Enemies on their way.


    Recently she teamed up with some other races to get much more stronger an wealthier. Shes now part of Group who is feared for such feats as slaying Gynok Moltar or Zarrakon called Combat Chrome. Even if she dislikes the presence of Humans, Rattongas etc she knows she needs them to slay foes she couldnt kill alone.

    When writing a Biography, it is important to spell Biography properly.

    Well apparently canonwise, 5 years have passed IRL and in Norrath but the ingame time is weird.
