"From the hearts and minds of the few, a world can change. Let us not scorn the few, the different,
for who knows who might one day change what we all see?"
- Brother Saminic, Order of Setha

   In a land torn asunder by the feuds of their ruler and his daughter, none thought they could survive 'The Purge'. A blending of magical energies and the blood of both the father and the child, The Purge has torn open the earth beneath the peoples' very feet. From within this abyss come the Nikarath, demons unrivalled in their maliciousness, yet cunning and intelligent. Assuming human forms, they have infiltrated the culture of Bilymas, assuming roles as normal people, waiting for the time when there are enough Nikarath for their demon lord to rise from the abyss and they shall lead their assault upon King Servius of Bilymas in service of his daughter, Princess Catheryn, a girl promising them wealth, power and all the poorest inhabitants of Bilymas as slaves for their workshops. Unaware of the more sinister aspect of this arrangement, or of the Nikaraths’ true persona, the people of Bilymas have thrown their love behind the girl and the weight of their swords and magic, hands and minds.
   Now, the time has almost come. Dark winds blow storm-clouds from the mountains to the North, birds flee the air for their roosts, and tremors shake the already unsteady soil. Into this emerging chaos come the Outcasts. Reviled for their allegiance to their king, warriors and monks, magic-users and wielders of naught more than their own hands and feet are coming together, united by their hatred of the Nikarath and their sense of duty to their ruler. Combining their powers, these few souls shall strive throughout Bilymas to destroy the Nikarath. Be sure, a war is coming. The only question left is:

Are you with them, or against them?

2005-08-03 [fob looks so good in blue]: Heya!!! Your wiki rox! :P

2005-11-28 [Blood Raven]: this certainly sounds good, I hope it'll work out :)

2005-11-28 [Blood Raven]: I've read through it all, and I must say, I'm impressed :D I'll certainly join when you start this

2005-11-29 [NamelessMerc]: Heh well thanks, [Erekosen] and [Archaelous] are doing a lot of work on this, I'm really just working on the characters and places. We'll be accepting auditions sometime near January/February, it's taking ages! XD

2006-01-12 [Archaelous]: Yep, it's not too hard to transfer all our paperwork up, but it takes one hell of a long time to transfer to here, hope you like the new abilities content ^.^

2006-01-12 [NamelessMerc]: Bah, I save time on that. I type straight to MS Word XD

2006-01-13 [Erekosen]: Nice work, dude. Maps about 75% finished, should be ready for updating in a few days, then I can get on with the page banners and the creature art. Where are we putting the guilds?

2006-01-13 [NamelessMerc]: Guild information will be on the in-depth history pages. Wow, that map is coming along fast.

2006-01-13 [Erekosen]: Yep, just the sea and road markers that really need any work now, I finished the city markers before I left for college. What's the verdict on the fog of war, stylised/following the lay of the land/plain?

2006-01-13 [NamelessMerc]: Sounds fine to me, I'm wondering what I should do for the in-depth history pages though... Do you want to section it off into land history, people history and organisation history?

2006-01-13 [Erekosen]: Well, individual race histories are a must (seeing as we're already working on them), then perhaps political factions/guilds histories...

2006-01-13 [NamelessMerc]: Aye, and a blended 'overall' view should be there, maybe in the form of a timeline or some such

2006-01-13 [Erekosen]: Yeah, sure dude. Really coming together now, ain't it? I'm guessing the map will be done by sunday. The "fog of war" layer should be done by monday afternoon.

2006-01-13 [NamelessMerc]: Aye skipper. The race descriptions will be up on Monday as well, I got to get them from my college account, as with the rest of the trades. Then all we're messing with is the history, rules and skills. And your page banners, of course.

2006-01-13 [SilverFire]: *haunts*

2006-01-13 [NamelessMerc]: Hm, I believe you lack the necessary chains and pathetic wailing to haunt effectively.

2006-01-13 [SilverFire]: That's because I'm not a ghost, per say. I'm a wiki haunter - a totally different kettle of fish. :P But uh, is it just me who has problems with the pre tag? The writing at the banner at the top... stretches my page far to the right - I don't get text wrappage when people use pre tags... is this just me?

2006-01-13 [NamelessMerc]: Neither do I, but it should be broken into two lines... I'll check it. *Completes check* Any better?

2006-01-13 [SilverFire]: Better now :)

2006-01-14 [NamelessMerc]: *Wipes sweat from brow* Phew...

2006-01-15 [Erekosen]: We hath a finished map, as soon as you get yourself on MSN :p

2006-01-23 [Erekosen]: Send me the password, Doug, I can't upload the new banner otherwise!

2006-02-01 [NamelessMerc]: Could someone please have a look at all the pages so far, I've read through them myself but you know what they say about proof-reading your own work.

2006-02-01 [SilverFire]: I've been reading most of them as I watched them o.O if I'd have seen anything, I'd've pointed it out on the page.

2006-02-01 [NamelessMerc]: Fair enough. I just overhauled the Places in Bilymas page, that's all. And linked all the pages into each other.

2006-02-01 [SilverFire]: *has pressed the 'watch this page' button many times this evening* :)

2006-02-01 [NamelessMerc]: Hehehe, I think we have too many sub-pages <.<; >.>; Especially as we still need to do the items

2006-02-01 [SilverFire]: O.O

2006-02-01 [NamelessMerc]: I know... But just think how good it'll be when it's all done. ^_^;

2006-02-01 [SilverFire]: Meh, their may be a lot of pages, but it's not as confusing as it could be if there were fewer pages, if you get what I mean.

2006-02-01 [NamelessMerc]: Methinks I do, at least everything is properly sorted.

2006-03-14 [iippo]: This wiki is linked from RPG Realm, which is an exported page. Would you please export this page (or ask me to do it for you if you don't know how) so out-of-ElfTown people will also be able to view this page. If you don't wish your page exported, let me know. Thank you.

2006-03-14 [SilverFire]: So... many new clicky links X_x

2006-03-14 [NamelessMerc]: Aye, such is the keywording and exporting way...

2006-03-15 [Archaelous]: Exporting is evil ¬.¬''  So many sub-pages >.<''

2006-03-15 [iippo]: ^_^;;; Sowwee... But it really is muchos better for everyone to export and keyword all pages you make that you want found by other people. So anything non-secret -> export it the moment you make it!

2006-04-07 [NamelessMerc]: Ned, dunno when you'll get this but make sure to message me. I just got wiki-upload privs from [Hedda] so we can upload directly onto the wiki pages from now on. So any art, you can give to me and I'll upload it.

2006-04-07 [Blood Raven]: you only got that now? I've had this picture upload thign for ages. I guess you weren't one of the first 10,000 to join?

2006-04-07 [NamelessMerc]: No I was 134,456 lol. That and I never actually asked for it. Got it as well as the colours for donating.

2006-04-07 [Blood Raven]: coolish :P

2006-04-07 [NamelessMerc]: Aye, with a cherry on top o.0;

2006-04-07 [Blood Raven]: as long as it tastes good

2006-04-07 [NamelessMerc]: XD s'all good.

2006-04-07 [Blood Raven]: so when's this starting, I'm eager to join? :)

2006-04-07 [Erekosen]: As soon as we finish an outline for the island and the cities. We're crashing production next week.

2006-04-07 [NamelessMerc]: Aye, uber-crashing session at my house on Wednesday.

2006-04-08 [Erekosen]: I'll try and bring my version of photoshop down (if I can find it), you got a scanner?

2006-04-08 [NamelessMerc]: Cool and yes, yes I do.

2006-04-11 [Erekosen]: Banners looks way better like that, doesn't it? =)

2006-04-11 [NamelessMerc]: Nothing like tooting your own horn, eh Ned? -.-;

2006-04-13 [NamelessMerc]: (Erekosen using NamelessMerc's Account) - Massive updates to the History and Spells sections =)

2006-04-18 [NamelessMerc]: Massive crashing session tomorrow, anything specific people would like to see done? And please don't say 'everything' *le sigh*

2006-04-18 [iippo]: Orcy things and/or beasthandler (or wassit called) things... ^_^;;; *ish shoo shelfish* :P

2006-04-18 [Erekosen]: Races and finishing off the Class stuff are on the list then.

2006-04-18 [Erekosen]: I'll have a go at getting the proficiencies and feats finished this afternoon, actually.

2006-04-18 [Blood Raven]: Good, I'm proud of all of you! *watches people stare* ... what?

2006-04-25 [Archaelous]: It's amazing, we've managed more in the last two weeks than we had in the month before XD

2006-04-25 [NamelessMerc]: *Blinks* What do you mean, ONE month?

2006-04-26 [Archaelous]: One month is a unit of time, generally composed of four weeks, each week containing seven days, each day holds twenty-four hours, each hour is comprised of sixty minutes, each minute is sixty seconds long....... I'm a pedanticist at heart :p

2006-04-26 [Blood Raven]: Actually, a month wouldn't last 4 weeks, rather 30- or 31 days, without much concern for weeks at all. Thisb ecause weeks are defined by having 7 days, but months being defined by one cycle of the moon. When people decided a week to have 7 days, nobody really cared about the moon, so the 4 weeks times 7 days = 28 and the number of days in a month being 30 or 31 don't match, with exception of february, which has 28 days.

2006-04-26 [NamelessMerc]: ... I'm thinking of removing the comments, just for that.

2006-04-26 [iippo]: Am I correct in assuming that we start from level one (the class thing)?

2006-04-26 [NamelessMerc]: We'll be putting up a section on this in the rules, but for now it stands at (I think): Trades - You start at the first level, and you'll gain Trade Experience for training with someone of a higher level than you, or completing certain trade activities successfully. For classes, you start as a basic class, your character will be level 3, and you level up to an advanced class at level 15 if you meet the requirements, or at any level-up past that where you meet those requirements.

2006-05-02 [Archaelous]: Yup, as far as I know that's how it stands so far.

2006-05-10 [Archaelous]: So.... someone remind me what I have to do at the moment other than a load more spells? XD

2006-05-10 [Erekosen]: Feats and Proficiencies for Necromancers, Illusionists, the Priests and Rogues classes =P

2006-05-10 [NamelessMerc]: I've still got to do the towns and cities 0.0;

2006-05-14 [Erekosen]: All the Level 1 feats for classes and Trades are done now, and we're looking at getting the abilities and races done this week. THYBER!

2006-05-15 [NamelessMerc]: I really can't believe how long this thing is taking. I didn't realise there was so much to do!

2006-05-16 [Archaelous]: I did, why do you think that whenever you said we'd be finished by 'x' I said 'x+many months' :p

2006-05-16 [Erekosen]: Because Doog is an incurable optimist. "You don't need need to charge the laptop, it'll last for an hour yet!" "There's nothing wrong with your ankle" "Of course we'll catch the bus on time" =P

2006-05-16 [NamelessMerc]: Dude, there is nothing wrong with your ankle. Pussy-pitter. :P Elbow to the windpipe, keep pitting!!!

2006-06-18 [Erekosen]: I've got the feeling a crash session is imminent.

2006-06-18 [NamelessMerc]: Imminent as in a week next saturday? Or imminent as in a week next Thursday?

2006-06-18 [Erekosen]: *shrugs* Just imminent, depends when we can kidnap pete, I guess. Though saturday is out, I've got work.

2006-06-18 [NamelessMerc]: Ah crud, yeah. Week on Thursday then, before we go to teh pub to get drunkeded.

2006-06-18 [Erekosen]: Also, can we have a roll-call on the beta party, please?

2006-06-24 [Erekosen]: Right, I need Nikarath or Dwarf characters for a party on Blood of Creation: The Hive. There's some scope for maybe 1 or 2 renegade human characters. It's either going to be a 6- or 8- character party. Message me for applications.

2006-06-26 [Blood Raven]: I'll gladly make a char

2006-06-26 [Erekosen]: Cool. If you wait til tomorrow, I can set you up with all the necessary info to make a char.

2006-06-26 [NamelessMerc]: Yes, he can give you all the stats etc. you need... And I can pretend I did some work XD

2006-06-26 [Erekosen]: 0_o, or [Merc] can fill you in while he makes a dwarf character.

2006-06-26 [NamelessMerc]: Oh and Mich, are you planning on making a character for the other? A Most Peculiar Party?

2006-06-26 [Blood Raven]: oh, I'll be happy to

2006-06-26 [Blood Raven]: I'll try making a char as soon as I can find time. Sadly, that could take awhile, 'cuz I've got thigns planned for the next few days. Maybe I could try getting up extra early or something 0.o; :P

2006-06-26 [NamelessMerc]: If you're that dedicated XD But if Erekosen isn't available then I can help you with your character.

2006-06-26 [Blood Raven]: cool.

2006-06-27 [Erekosen]: [Blood Raven], there's a basic blank bio at BR C 1, if you want to be getting on with filling in everything apart from Alignment, Allegiance, Guild and Language for now. That stuff is based on race, so I'll let you know what possibilities are open when you've chosen your race.

2006-06-27 [iippo]: Is that for the peculiar party too? And can I be a kid? o.O

2006-06-27 [Erekosen]: Aye, that's for the Peculiar Party wiki, I'm holding off The Hive until we've finished the combat system. And I guess you can be a kid if you want...

2006-06-27 [Erekosen]: IP C 1 =)

2006-07-03 [NamelessMerc]: Blood of Creation: Places in Bilymas is currently underway... Any suggestions would be welcomed.

2006-07-10 [Erekosen]: People: I have a question, would you prefer to see all creatures set out in alphabetical order, or arranged in groups according to type?

2006-07-15 [NamelessMerc]: Note: Please take a look at Blood of Creation: Combat, and comment where necessary.

2006-11-20 [NamelessMerc]: Ladies and gentlemen, I apologise for the lateness of returning to work on this wiki. An annoying thing called offline life got in my way, and I've been away much longer than I anticipated. However, I am now back and ready to begin work on this wiki. I shall start with Guilds, which I've simplified (a lot!) and then move onto the other things. Anyone who's still interested in this wiki, I'd appreciate to hear from you.

~ Merc.

2008-10-24 [Erekosen]: I'm a bad daddy =[

- Erekosen

2008-10-25 [Erekosen]: At some point in the near future, I'd like to simplify our rules and system, and perhaps get started on this again, what's the verdict?

2008-12-20 [SAHS]: The amount of work that's gone into this wiki is incredible. I salute you folks.
