Tale of Three Sisters: The Burning Crusade

This is a continuation of the story of my Three in game personas, if you haven't read the first part go check it out dummy! This part established what they were up to from after the War of the Ancients all the way up to the time leading into Legion! Its important to know where they are and where they have been to understand how their dealing with the current events!

Thousands of years after the burning legion invaded, many wars occurred on Azeroth. The two Azeroth bound sisters did not cross paths during these wars and played a similar role to most soldiers. The eldest continued her mastery over the forces of the wild. Becoming a high ranking member of the Cenarian Circle, while the youngest started delving into the darker side of priesthood, testing out summoning Shadow fiends and Mind-benders. Over time she would grow much stronger in the void, but it was the scourge invasion which led her deep into the void. Arthas Menithil Marched on the city of Silvermoon, he would use this attack as a display of power, by cutting a scar in the land all the way through the city, to prove no defence could repel him. The day Sylvannas Windrunner fell in battle the Priest knew the battle was lost. She began trying to tear a rift into the void, anything she could do to escape. She was successful, but she was no master of the void, once she entered the rift she would not be able to leave it for some time.

Meanwhile the Burning legion was almost ready for a full scale invasion. The middle sister wished to join them in this invasion, to see her home once more, but she was denied the request by Archimonde himself. Instead she would be sent to the broken world of Dranor, to reinforce the Demon Magtheridons hold on the land. She detested the idea of not being able to go home to see her loved ones again, but Magtheridon was a demon she could undermine, while Archimonde had the power to kill her, Magtheridon could be defeated. After awhile on Outland word reached the black temple that Illidan stormrage had arrived on the planet, and that he had raised an army that marched for the black temple. It had been 10,000 years since she saw one of her own kind, this was her one chance. She offered to lead the vanguard, claiming she knew how elves think, she would be key to stopping them. Magtheridon hesitantly agreed and allowed it. She lead a small force of demons to the front gates and when met with Illidans army she burst into demonic flames, bearing wings and claws she mowed down the demons at her side and flew to Illidans side. Claiming to have fought with him in the war of the ancients. It had seemed Illidan went through a similar transformation, but he was somehow able to retain his metamorphosis form permanently. Together they rushed the temple and claimed Outland. There Illidan told her of the legions intentions, how they had burned countless worlds, destroyed the spark of life and cleaved whole worlds in two. She had a choice, if she wants to go home Illidan would allow it and do everything in his power to get here there...or she can fight the true war, in hope that it never reaches Azeroth again. She made her choice and was instrumental in multiple assaults of legion worlds by having insider knowledge of the legions plans already in motion.

A time would soon come when she would be inches from her sister again, but unable to speak to her. The dark portal opened and the races of Azeroth poured through once more. However The middle child had made her choice, she would continue her fight. As their blood elf and Naga allies both began betraying them and were killed by the mortal races, Illidan put his plan into motion. The Illidari would assault Mardum, while he deals with them, she told Illidan.."if you see my sister...grant her a swift death" and so she went. The assault on Mardum was a complete success and they secured the Keystone, but they returned to a trap and they were frozen in their own blood. She saw her older sister, marching away, here eyes were so old, but her own...were unrecognisable She had finally returned to Azeroth..her home..as a prisoner...locked away in the vault of the wardens. Where she would wait for years, knowing full well what the legion was planning, unable to prevent it. Everyday she prayed for her older sisters death and to see her younger sister again, alive.

The eldest sister continued serving as a typical hero of Azeroth, fighting the "good fight", defeating evils as they threatened her. She felt powerful, strong and with every foe she killed it made her feel more right. Blissfully unaware of the true fight, and how weak she really was.
The youngest sister still remained inside the rift between worlds, consuming void energies, it warped her very form. Over time more of her kind found their way into the rift, but none of them knew how to escape. They would try and help each other however they could, but none of them fully understood the void. Something the sister did start to understand from her time in the rift is that the void wasn't what she had been told about. It wasnt all consuming, all corrupting. She had the same addiction the Arcane as she did to the Void. Over time she became very disconnected from Azeroth and sceptical of its history, the first step to fighting this addiction would be to understand it. Help would arrive a few years later, after the Legions final invasion of Azeroth,

Tale of Three Sisters: The War of The Ancients

So after talking about my own backstory to my characters with a friend I decided to have it down on paper and share it! This is fan-fiction about my own characters so if you don't like it that's okay! And I know people have issues with characters having interactions with major lore characters so if you don't like that, there's a bit of it in this! So sorry. If your all cool enjoy! This sums up the start of their story, there's much more to come leading all the way up to Teldrasil and I intend to have the rest of it written soon..ish...Enjoy!!

Tale of Three Sisters: War of The Ancients

The three elf sisters were born over 10,000 years ago prior to The War of The Ancients. Their roles were similar to most elves taking part in the war. The eldest had long silver locks, with purple markings on her face in the shape of a leafs. Prior to the war she was a rouge, stalking the woods and using her natural affinity to sticking to the shadows and blending in for hunting and gathering. Her younger sister was a tad shorter bearing the same hair but cut short, her markings were purple too but in the shape of scars from her eyes. Prior to the war she was a powerful mage, serving in the Moongaurd, and proud of it. Finally the youngest was much shorter than the other too, bearing blonde hair at a medium length. She was a priest but had spent less and less time on her practices and more time on perfecting her appearance as the highborne had taken a liking to her, most notably her husband to be who was highborne. While not rich beyond her wildest dreams, she saw him as a gateway to a new status. The three sisters all had vastly different views on the world. The eldest respected the cycle of the world, the middle child wanted to change the world with power, and the youngest, through status and political control. But all three would see their views changed during the war of the ancients. Hordes of demons poured through the Well of Eternity. The Middle child was taken to the front lines as part of the Moongaurd. The eldest fought along side the treants and Wild Gods summoned by the first mortal druid Malfurion, while the youngest found herself caught on the wrong side. Demons marched through her home and gardens, she knew she couldn't stay here, but an attempt to escape to the other side could see her killed. As the war progressed the Moongaurd were sent to defend The Blackrook Hold. The hold was being overrun, and so few Moongaurd were sent, while Illidan was with them, she was afraid. So she did what anyone would do. She ran.
As the eldest fought with beasts and the treants she found the forces of nature moving to her will. Her power was weak but as her enemies attempted to dodge the stabs and swipes of her daggers, the vines and roots in the ground latching onto them, holding them in place. She didn't quite understand it, but she wasn't going to question and advantage right now. The youngest sister had spotted something worrying, a strike team led by a pit lord had started moving toward Blackrook. She was an inside spy, unable to report on any movements, she had overheard how the Moongaurd were mounting a weak defense of the Hold and how they could easily break them with numbers. She had to act fast to save her sister. The priest ran to the balcony and began drawing on the overflowing power of the well, this was her first time, and the power was far too much for her. She tried hard to concentrate the power on the strike team, smiting most of them down, and slowing the rest to a crawl. But she couldn't take it. Before the highborne guards or demons even had a chance to strike her down she exploded with power shattering the balcony beneath her, plummeting to the ground. She fel in peace, thinking her actions had saved her sister. Soon Malfurion made the plan known to the eldest sister to destroy the well, she couldn't leave until she knew her younger sisters were safe. Illidan had returned with a strange Green creature. At this moment her informed of the Holds defence, and the death of the Moongaurd. The eldest sister didn't have time to grieve her sister, she slipped into the shadows and followed Illidan and Malfuiron to the well. Once there she broke away from them and headed towards the palace, searching for her sister, the forces of nature were much less helpful around this area, she found herself missing her targets frequently. However after long she found her sisters home, and felt the overwhelming power. Peering over the balcony she saw her body, but the spark of life still flickered in her, something demons would have trouble sensing. Her attention quickly was switched as she looked up at the skys, to see felbats, dragons felgaurds and more horrors burning the sky's. All this life was about to be undone, she would not let her sister be consumed by it too. She leapt to the ground, picked up her sister and ran. Malfurion was drawing the attention of most of the demons, so she could slip away fast.

At least two of the sisters would be safe. Meanwhile the middle sister had not done her duty, and she would be thankful for this after learning what Illidan had done at the Hold, however she had traded a swift death for something much more horrifying. The demons on route to the hold had caught her fleeing. There was a special place for enemies that wouldn't have the honour to fight. The demons gave her a choice, serve, or a lifetime of torture. In a moment of fear she chose serve, and her eyes were burnt out of her sockets, replaced with fel green burning vision. She didn't get the luxury of defecting back to the mortals. She was taken back to Argus, and forced to serve.

The Aftermath

The eldest and youngest sister had escaped along with the other refugees, however they were changed. The eldest started as one of Malfurions pupils, learning to control and understand the forces of nature, soon becoming among the first of the mortal druids.
Meanwhile her sister took a long time to recover, even when she did, her magic addiction was uncontrollable. Malfurion had a put a ban on the use of Arcane magic. However many still used it, herself included. She couldnt help it, the withdrawals had sometimes been fatal at this level of addiction. After one too many instances of reckless magic uses from a huge amount of the population, Malfurion exiled anyone who wished to continue using it. The eldest sister begged her to give up magic but she knew it was best to go with them, she had always been different to her other sisters, this had set it in stone in her mind. She sailed for new lands with who she believed to be her people.
Life for the middle sister was much worse. While the invasion of Azeroth had failed, many more invasions were ongoing, she was sent to countless worlds to participate, the only thought that allowed her to keep slaughtering is that one day, there would be an invasion of Azeroth again, and perhaps she could run interference, or defect. That day would come, but she would have defected before it came.

To save a Demon Hunter

*rubs away tears* okay so where was I, oh yeah, Maeiv and the cheaty rag tag group had just slain my hubby Lord Illidan Stormrage, but I was not afraid because I knew things the group didn’t (because blizzard made it up like 9 years later or some shit) I knew Illidan was a demon so his soul would make a new body for him..or something..To be honest its not that clear. But the sneaky Maeiv knew too..i guess? Look lets not focus on the details. She used his demon blood against him and froze him in place! As all the reinforcements from Mardum came rushing in the same fate befell them. I knew I had to act fast at risk of being locked up in the vault so I joined the rag tag group and made my way back home to Azeroth where I stayed undetected for 7 years.

One day while walking through Stormwind I received a summons to the Iron Front in the Blasted Lands, orcs from the past and another reality (like I said don’t think about it) had invaded our world This could be my chance, another reality, perhaps I can find their Illidan! He could help me free our Illidan, then they’ll be two of them. *Amy becomes lost in her thoughts for about 15 solid minutes of telling this story* I packed my things and tyranda mask and headed for the Iron Front. Hordes poured through the gate, but I followed Khadgar through, the mage seemed to know much about the fel, he is my best chance at finding Illidan, I decided to stay close to him. The adventures in this land took me far and wide but never close to my daddy, until we assaulted Hellfire Citadel.

There I met everyone’s favourite lovable character Gul’daniel. While the group of hunters and mages went off killing everything in sight, I snuck up to the peak of the citadel to strike a bargain with Gul’daniel. We hatched a plot to free the Illidan of my world. While the gang tore the place apart and Gul’daniel realised his fate he presented our idea to Don Archimondé. His desire to see Azeroth burn was unquenchable and so the three of us put the plan into motion. Gul’daniel called up his side hoe Cordona to tell him he’d need someone to pick him up once he lands in Azeroth. Don Archimondé fell before the gang and made them believe they bested him and took that chance to transport Gul’daniel into our world. With everyone thinking they had stopped the legion I waltzed home to Azeroth, I knew once the Vault had been breached, we would be called to help, and I would be reunited with my beloved, I just need to grab some more staples for my mask.

Fourteen months past as I awaited the plan to move into phase two until finally Khadgar took flight as he had heared of an invasion at the Vault of the Wardens. I offered to go with him, but he said no, the demon hunters had been realised and it was far too dangerous and that Druid powers would be of no use in this situation. I stayed undercover knowing I would soon be sent to clean up after them. Now im not going to say the whole legion invasion wasn’t my fault, but it takes two to tango so come on Gul’daniel takes some of the blame. Because this little plot ended up in a full blown intergalactic war. People died, family’s were torn apart, I think some vodo troll guy died after sitting on a chair or something, idk. But you gotta admit, my plan worked. Khadgar sent for us to retake the vault but upon inspection…Illidan was gone. Its been to many nights without him. The hunt is on

Gate Crashers

Well this was quite the evening, I was in the mansion my husband Illidan had claimed in the name of outland on a normal Thursday. The kids were in bed, the naga things we’re in the basement, not a peep all through the house. Then suddenly, our security guard, Supremus had been murdered! I looked down from atop the spire, to see a rag tag group of hunters and some funny looking fellows storming the gates!

Me being a quite welcoming host, went to meet them and showed them to our Butler, Mr Dumb Dumb McPoopy (He keeps telling us to call him Akama Mattata or something?) He kindly takes their coats but then one of them tells him about a viva le revelation and they all start making a mess in the coat room! How barbaric. Me being very passive, I try to reason with them and take them to see my cousin in law, Gorefiend. Now Gorefiend is a bit hashtag edge, and starts turning them into ghosts so I had to go around resurrecting them, peasant work am I right? But then one of them drives a sword through his heart! As I stood their trying to stop the bleeding they all run off to destroy that soul engine thing Hubby keeps in the basement. Going to be honest with you guys on this one, I let them take it out, that thing keeps me up at night (not the only thing am I right or am I right?)
Anyway after they completely ruined the guest floor I had to escort them to Illidans Friend ChambersTM Its where all those lady’s with the masks stay, he’s such good friends with all of them, sometimes they hang out for hours at a time..and sometimes for 5 minutes….
They went around killing all of Hubby’s good friends! One of them even claimed a bed, I allowed the carpet area to be her room.

Once they reached the peak of the Chambers, The Sensation Station, they killed that lovely 6-armed lady, we were supposed to go out for coffee next week! Then they went and killed those blood elf people, they were very close friends of mine. After all this nonsense Mr Dumb Dumb McPoopy shows up, and brings his ghost friends and starts breaking into the master bedroom! At Illidans alone time of all times. I stand my ground but the others push past and interrupt his skull session.
Then, they start doing battle, Illidan being no stranger to battle, starts cutting them to bits, the hunters fell, the mages blood painted the room! The broken fell to the floor, some say when his skull hit the temple, it could be heard throughout all of outland. As he stood proud over all of them that slut maeiv showed up and made a move, I kicked her out though. The day was won, but then the flesh from their corpses disappeared and they got to have like 3 more goes?! How is that fair Blizzard come on we won fair and square?

The last image Illidan Stormrage saw as the light drained form his eyes-1997 Colourised

SO after like 20 goes or something they finally cheated and killed my hubby, and he didn’t even get a respawn! Hacks I tell you, my controller was broken, my dad works at Nintendo. Then they started taking pics of his dead body, kinda messed up if you ask me. But my hubbys days were not over, and the so-called heroes of Azeroth? Their days were numbered, for Illidan will rise again! His wings will cast a shadow over Azeroth and paint the land with the blood of-wait what
*whispers*
Wait so
*whispers*
HES ON THEIR SIDE, THE **** IS THIS

Conors Adventure In FF Month 3!

So that time has come, its been 3 months since I entered the amazing and fantastic world of Eorzia, and oh my how far we've come. I have seen things you couldn't dream, done things you couldn't comprehend, experienced things that to this day I didn't think were even possible in a game. But thanks to the amazing world we have set out in front of us to explore, and the company we bring with us, its possible to experience these things.

Level 50
I'd finally done it, something I had striven to do for so long. I hit level 50 and finally had the full set of Armour I set out to obtain so so long ago. It was incredible. A feeling that I had come a long way, climbed the highest mountain and you know what? The view is pretty good from up here. I felt strong, I felt like for the first time ever that I was actually a warrior, a person that could help, someone to answer the call, no matter where it comes from, I will be there to help.

Scholar
I felt it was time for a more studios path, enough with the killing and fighting, I wanted to learn! Study, discover and return to my roots of healing, so I decided to study the ways of a Scholar. The choice of which healer I would become was very tough but Scholar was were my attention was drawn. Maybe it was the idea of being a student, carrying books around and learning! Maybe it was having a little companion to keep me company, or maybe it was just the pretty pink haired cat lady ;) But im happy with this new career im pursuing, and I wouldn't be surprised if I like it even more than the dragoon. Thats whats great about this thing we call Final Fantasy. You can be whoever you want, If you wake up and decide you want to play music on a bow and arrow, well you go for it! No ones stooping you!


Transform into a kitty

My transformation was pretty strange and out of the blue. Nothing really edged it on, and there was nothing wrong with my old look in my opinion. But I decided I would give the kitty's a break and give it a go! And I fell in love with the kittys!! <3 As a cat I feel like an energetic little ball of fun! Gives me a less mature look and lets me be on my wild side :D I still love my dragon and I feel strange with this. I think it it because the game allows you to do everything with one character so I'm almost limited in what i can do with that character. I kind of want to be both my dragon and my kitty at the same time since I love them both so much, ill be a kitty for now but I might go back to the dragon since I like them both as equals :)

Story
The story I experienced so far has been pretty amazing. While I feel it got off to a really slow start, once it picked up it really got good! Of course I cant go into details but trust me its worth playing for the story. But to games I play there;s much more than the story they present to you. And this game is great at giving you a canvas to paint your own little story's on. I began a dragon army with Sinela and Miku! Mat and Zinneth were kinda (they didn't accept my offer) members :3 I had loads of fun with this little thing we were doing that had nothing to do with any lore in the game! I've been writing a small story for myself about my study's as a scholar, what I'm learning, the relationship with my pets and a growing love with the pink haired kitty ;) just something to keep me entertained and its so much fun, If any of you like to write, maybe write little story's about in game stuff, It can really add a lot to the game :)

New home!!
My new home! After saving up money for ages, selling a lot of stuff and doing a lot of favors and with a lot of help from my friends, my dream house was finally a possibility and I am more than glad with how it turned out! I finally have a place for private chats, alone time and somewhere to just hang out :3

Gorgeous Design
Through all my time with the game one thing has become apparent above all the other aspects, and that is that this is a damn beautiful game. The areas I saw were amazing, limsa captures that salty breeze and the white stone used in the city is so bright, perfect for a sea side city. Uldah is smack bang in the middle of a desert, with the city being lined with two major parallels, signifying the divide between the rich and the poor in Uldah. And finally gridania, while it is my least favorite of the three it still manages to capture a serene peaceful look, whenever I'm in gridana I seem to be at a calm state of mind, in fact that is where I am when writing most of this post! One design of a creature in this game was Zu, As soon as i saw him I feel in love, I was speechless at this beast, I dont know why but I adore this beast and think he is my favorite design in the whole game

Summary
I guess the one thing to take away from this is that I love FF, even if I have been drifting away from it slightly it still remains as one of the two games I put most of my time into and its still inspiring me to write and create my own stories and art. Any game that manages to that is a 10 in my book. For anyone that's still on the fence with this game I would welcome you with open arms, give it a try, you might find your new home :)
Thanks For Taking the time to read this and sorry ive been so inactive with blog posts and the community in a whole :)
