I'm tempted to give this a go - although I seem to have writer's typists block........ Cheesy

Who's the original Shartak bad guy?

Who but Armadox?

The sticky wicket with writing about Armadox is that it ruins the myth. It's like remakes of horror movies where they try to do too much backstory for Jason Voorhees or Michael Myers. There's no story to Armadox, Armadox was, is, and Armadox always shall be. I have heard rumors that if you say his name 5 times he will return. Probably just a myth. Good thing I only said it four times. Armadox.

So how do I submit, anyhow? Just PM it?

Also, mine's not exactly a backstory... I could never, EVER try to explain Armadox. He'd just kill me for being wrong.

Exactly, just pm it to me, along with a link to the relevant profile page, and that's it.

i actually agree with you to an extent. but i think that with any well known, mysterious figure, people are naturally bound to speculate. that's why the word legends is in the title. there's no reason any entry need be considered canonical to the character, and there is no reason they cannot conflict with eachother. in fact, it is completely expected that they will. my purpose with this contest is and has always been to stimulate mythology, urban legends and campfire stories, in short; invention and speculation.

I apologize for not answering questions more promptly this close to deadline, my internet access has gotten abit spotty. I may extend the deadline by a week because of this.

2 days remain (most likely)

A rat is actually many rats.  Wink Once one dies another takes it's place.

A horde of rats that can use blowpipes.

Scared?

The flight was heavenly
the sky my ocean
As I soared beyond the clouds
and golden voices called me home
You asked "Do you believe in love?"
and I shook my head
So, your sins unto me as I fall down
never to return from this land
My wings are clipped, my voice stilled,
Goodbye.

Kinda reminds me of a signpost. To bad I stopped playing him way before he could ever become famous, so I don't foresee anyone righting a story about him motivating his oppressed brethren and their attempt to take control of Derby...

Due to my spotty internet connection of late, I have opted to extend the submission deadline by 1 week. It should be resolved before that time, so that the vote may be conducted without difficulty. Entrants may use this time to their advantage should they so wish.

8 days remain
