lol. The drama is heating up! lol.
@ Gigs: Thnx. I figured hes a cool character, and his longevity and sever dedication would make him a good lamb to chop, so to speak. lol.
@ Everyone: I do agree that the main characters shouldnt go yet. I think enough "Death" has been shed, but idt a ransom should go on. Perhaps the Shadows just pulverize and wound the heroes so badly, they have no choice but to retreat. And in that retreat, the groups that had been seperate before (Nights group and Orics group) will come together and can then formulate a new strategy to attack the Shadows together at a different time.
Of course, this all depends on how Shadow decidees to destroy everything... err... i mean... end the battle. lol. we'll see what happens, but personally, i think the heroes should be wounded badly and have a forced retreat, but that the Shadows let them go and allow them to regroup. POerhaps with Vent giving some magnanimous speech about how pitiful and uncoordinated their forces were and maybe give them an ultimatum of time before they attack again. Say, 5 days of peace in order to give the heroes time to make themselves a worthy adversary for the Shadows?
Again, im just spitballin and brainstorming here. Comments/questions/ideas are appreciated.
