Indomitable was sprawled carelessly on the easy chair, TV remote in one hand and a bowl of ice cream in the other.
"The quarterback drops back to pass... looking... looking... he throws it out to Higgins, who runs clear to the forty-six yard line!"
The announcer rambled on, while Indom closed his eyes in utter bliss. Yes, this was what life was meant to be.
"Hey, Indom! what's up?"
Aaaaaaaaaaaaand there was the end of it.
With a long sigh, Indomitable opened his eyes. Shade stood in front of him, blocking the TV.
"Indom, I need your advice."
"I don't give advice. Now move."
"But it's really important!"
"I don't care."
"My girlfriend broke up with me!"
"Tough luck. Why don't you go date Tina or something? I'm trying to watch the game here."

I have delayed in replying to your recent letter until such a time as the attempt on Kharad Fortress was prepared. I am proud to say that the necessary boats have been procured. I humbly request that Col. Jason's forces reinforce Gen. James Longsword's corps. With their aid, the success of my mission should be certain. Without them I fear the results are uncertain. There is still a struggle to keep the army fed and clothed. I realize that resources are short, however I dearly hope that some salted meats can be spared from Gen. Bell's forces. If these requests were realized, it would greatly contribute to the morale and effectiveness of my army.

Imrahil eyes jolted awake to his brother staring up at him… well one of them, he wouldn’t find out yet as he felt something cold piercing his skin before his eyes closed once more. Imrahil woke up, the feeling from his hands gone, he saw Morgoth’s cold dead eyes. Imrahil quickly snapped back awake, a marshmallow from his Lucky Charms sliding off his face as everyone around him chuckling. After breakfast, he made a hasty retreat to his room. Upon sitting at his desk, he heard the door shut and the lock turned, “Hello comrade, it is time you repay us.” he saw Elestan, standing there menacingly… as menacing as one can be still in their pajamas. Imrahil tried to find something in the room to fight him off, but all there was were stuffed animal…Read more >
Shade was sitting on the couch, reading up on his 40k lore. Legs kicked up into the table.
“Shade, you're still here? I thought you'd be out after the month ended.”
“Oh, yeah I talked to Glosur. He's letting me stay indefinitely. He actually wanted me to stay in the first place but I said just a month so I could find a place to rent for me and my girlfriend. But… she ended that… soo now there no reason for me to get a place of my own. I'll be in the room second to the end of the hall on the right.”
“Isn't that Draug’s room”
“Draug? You know, Draugluin.”
“Who the hell is Draugluin? You're a good kid Elestan, don't start substance abuse already.”
“What? I'm not high, he's my brother, your own half cousin for pete’s sake!”

If you're reading this, chances are that you know I rarely go on Discord or on the Wiki, and haven't been on either in months. I try to make an effort to spend time on here but I can't always. I'll be on a bit more in the future, but this may change. I'll try to help when help is needed, and just generally play my (rather insignificant) part in helping the Wiki be the best it can be.

Well, I had a good run. But now, it's over. I am leaving.
Now, before you start panicking, I am going to remain in contact with certain people, and I will still be part of the Voidbourne Wiki. But I cannot remain in the MERP community any longer.
I remember back when we were just a small group of people, doing roleplays together, having fun. It was relaxed. It was enjoyable. That was, what, three or four years ago now?
But now? In recent days, I have dreaded getting on the Discord or the wiki. Coming on here is a burden. It shouldn't be like that! I'm constantly furstrated and bothered by things like what seems to pass for humour among many of you these days. Piled on top of that, some of the people that have been joining recen…Read more >
Screams, shouts, yells, and jeers of gladiators and spectators alike fill the floor of the arena. While most are simply here to watch and enjoy a bloody spectacle, others are here for a specific purpose. High above, within one of the many viewing rooms, a plot is brewing. The Emperor has recently (in the past few weeks) refused to be seen in the open, remaining at his bedside or on his throne, only letting in a select group of holy priestesses into his chambers.
“I tried to speak with the Emperor today, but one of those witches stopped me, again.”
“I fear his condition is worse than they are letting the public in on.”
“It must be bad, I’ve heard the high priest, extended family, and other important officials have been heading to his bedside fo…

A father and son walk within the bustling forum of their home city. On every side of the main road are stalls, slave markets, and dark alley ways all filled with both interesting, exotic, and rather dangerous looking individuals. Down one alley way a noble man is dealing with some sort of shady antique dealer, down another some blind man sits in the dark chanting in many thousands of tongues, and all around them slaves and freemen shopping and conversing amongest each other.
A loud cry breaks the atmosphere, "Out of the way, get off the roads! Those who fall to comply will be severely punished if not killed!" shouts a praecones.
The crowd breaks immediately and rushes to get off the main road crowding the market stalls. After that what sound…Read more >
It was a peaceful day in the Wiki household. Things were going well. We hadn't had a revolution, revolt, or incident involving firearms in... three hours? Two and a half?
I was working in the garden, planting some yellow roses, when I heard muffled shouts coming from inside and the crackle of small arms fire. I sighed, knowing they were at it again.
'OPEN FIRE!' screamed Chaz from their barricade of chairs, overturned tables and boxes, and Argali dutifully set up his stolen Chauchat (one had to wonder where Faenor got the money to afford all these guns, much less to modify them) and poured paint-bullets down the hallway at the advancing troops under Itallie, who were promptly sprayed with all the colors of the rainbow. They ducked for cover,…Read more >
DD2 and I were discussing how stale the wiki's gotten without any (conteibutive) new members. We thought abiut advertising on a popular site like reddit but recent experience... Instead why not invite a friend and start trying to make our community less insular.

'Let 'em have it, boys!'
Muskets crackled and spat and smoke rolled along the line as Gondorian troops, the 37th Regiment of Fusiliers, unloaded a volley into the charging Umbarans. Their white uniforms were soaked in blood, mud, and gore, while the black-garbed fusiliers of the Guard behind them had yet to see action. Ahead of the breastworks, a sea of red marked the positions of Umbaran troops, living and dead.
It was the third attack today on the Gorgoroth lines. Gondor had been pushed out of Núrn not in months but in weeks, taken by storm. Hastily constructed breastworks and trenches formed their only defense here at the moment. Colonel Elion cursed the day Gondor decided to begin producing heavy artillery; it couldn't keep pace with the…Read more >

When last we left the Wiki Family, they were in dire straights.
Imrahil was to have his girlfriend over that evening. Predictably, everything immediately went to hell in a hand basket.
-Travian has gone missing, and has not been seen for over two days.
-Chaz, an embittered ex-family leader, is leading a revolution to overthrow Itallie and put himself back in control.
-Dark went with Patrick and a few others to try and find some flowers for Imrahil to give his girlfriend. They picked very quality stock: wild dandelions. Now they return back to the house to find a full-scale war being waged. Unfortunately, Dark has recently been shot in the face b…Read more >
All Imrahil wants to do is bring his girlfriend over for dinner. Good luck with that.
"Anything that can go wrong, will. If multiple things can go wrong, they will go wrong in whatever order causes the most possible damage. "Possible damage" always exceeds what everyone previously thought was possible by at least 500%." -Imrahil's Law.
"Are you sure you want to come over for dinner tonight?" asked Imrahil uneasily. He was kicked back on his bed, talking on the phone with his girlfriend.
"Of course!" exclaimed Mandy, "I can't wait to meet your family!"
Imrahil didn't seem comforted. "But my family... they're a little... odd. I mean..."
"Come on, Imrahil, everyone's family is a little weird sometimes."
"I don't think you quite understand-"

That day began with a knock. This is normally the part where the author tells you it would be a crazy day but crazy is relative. Relative to this family, it's just a day in the life.
"Eureka get the door" Code hadn't even taken his eyes off the Xbox screen.
"Why me? I-"
"Nope you're closer"
"I am in the kitchen... you are in the same room as the door"
Code said nothing, and another knock goes through the door. An eerily familiar knock that Eureka just couldn't pinpoint. As he opens the door it becomes all too clear, "SHADE! I thought you were dead?! Where have you been all this time... and is that a scale foam replica of Sauron's mace?"
"It's good to see you old friend" He walks into the house looking around. "Where's pops? I need to ask him if …Read more >
Hello, Faenor here. I'm the oldest in the Wiki family, nine months more so than Imrahil; though as I got an early start in life, I happily have a masters in history and a job teaching at a university, and therefore have no time to watch the house or corral the family. Oh, and I'm a reservist naval officer, though we'll talk about how I got wrangled into that some other time. I blame Trav, personally.
In any case, the family is... shall we say, unique. We have Glosur, who adopted me when I was a wee little lad; Imrahil, who's generally tried to keep me from being brutally murdered or offered up as one of Tyb's many sacrifices; the twins, who seem to really like making up passwords; Morgoth, whom I introduced to a fedora one day in an attempt…Read more >
The clacking of boots upon marble, the sound of Cherubs nesting in the eves of the arches and other cervices, and the low mummer of chanting and the drifting smoke of incense. Ever expanding hall ways running for miles littered on all sides with statues, guards, and pilgrims of all sorts and variety. Every once and awhile a scribe, slave, or servitor runs past bearing some sort of tool or scroll heading down to the next department and all of this is within on place, the Imperial palace.
Two officials stride through this all heading for the most sacred location of all, the Eternal gate, beyond it's doors lie the Emperor himself in all his golden splendor. Hardly ever do the doors open and when they do millions of pilgrims flood the outer wal…Read more >
Well, about two months ago, I decided to try my hand at writing a small wiki family story based off of the recent events of the coup by Chaz and Argali. Here it is. Thanks to Imrahil and Chaz, who helped with proofreading and whatnot, and one to Shadow, who helped a lot.
Well, here it is. Also note that I pasted this from a google doc and don't know how to edit the formatting.
I’m back, from school, and thank goodness that ‘revolution’ is over. But now, I have an even bigger problem on my hands. After the unfortunate events of the recent coup by Chaz (who is currently making a pretty bad leader, and showing lots of red flags - literally, he has communist flags hanging everywhere.) someone had neglected to put the bacon back, or perhaps this…

Far above LT-299, a 290-B class mass civilian ship remains anchored in quarantine. The engines pulse with a dull hum. Short bursts of flashes occasionally show through the portholes like tiny lightning storms. A 5-CA class military boarding ship is docked on its side. A veichle approaches, the Barbed Haft, personal starship of Astrid Stone. Inquisitor.
A knock sounds through the door of Astrid's worship room. "Inquisitor, we are approaching the LT system. Would you like us to establish communications with the boarding ship?"
Astrid opens the door. "Prepare the armaments, check the armors, then establish comms, lieutenant."
Astrid quickly makes way to her quarter room, stripping off her standard uniform and neatly folding by …

I didn't even realize it had snuck up on me so quickly. My two year anniversary of being on this wiki has finally arrived!
I hope you know that I love and appreciate each and every one of you. This place, and the friends I have made here, will always have a special place in my heart. I've gone through quite a lot since I first joined, and I'm not sure how I could have made it without you guys.
This wiki has been such a blessing to me. And despite all the arguing and debate that flares up once in a while, the time I have spent here has been irreplaceable. I wouldn't give you guys for anything in the world. Here's to two incredible years of friendship and fun, and may we have many more.

Recently I've noticed something interesting. Whenever there's a problem with free speech and SJWs, the right quickly blames it on the left. The left, in turn, quickly blames it on the dangerous far left, the crazy radicals that are nothing like them. This explanation seems acceptable to enough the right wing. In this day and age it seems like the fall eft is always something to be analyzed, but few people actually look at their beliefs. Too many times I've heard to SJWs referred to as socialist or communists, with little evidence to back it up. So as a member of the far left, I'm jumping in. Here are some of the most outspoken proponents of free speech on the left, the greatest opposition to SJWs, and all belonging to the so called dangero…Read more >

With Elessar still at war in the east and trying to broker peace with the Haradrim, he had little time to look after his young son. Thus Eldarion, for a few years, lived in Tirith Aear with Imrahil, whom he affectionately called "Uncle". Imrahil became like a second father to him, and when Eldarion inherited the throne, the aging prince was always his closest advisor.
The rain poured down on Imrahil, the winds howling through the mountains like a legion of wargs. But Imrahil stood silently at the very top of Tirith Aear, gazing quietly at the rocky cliffs below him. The storm raged on, as massive waves crashed into the stone like orcish armies against a shield-wall. Thunder rolled in the distant hills, and for a …Read more >
The other day I was looking through some old blog posts, and rediscovered a story Travian had written a while back. You might remember it. It involved the heroic sacrifice of Travian Sackett, who gave his life to help Imrahil escape an Umbarian assault.
Now I've never thought about it before, really. I've just always envisioned Travian and Imrahil dying side-by-side in battle, in some heroic last stand on the burning sands of Harad or the rolling plains of distant Rhun. Travian dying first... well, it's intriguing to say the least. How would Imrahil react? After all, this is not only Imrahil's friend, but his most trusted general and seneschal. I'm not sure Imrahil could even function on a day-to-day basis without his faithful squire.
So, si…Read more >

Welcome to Code's Game Reviews, guys. Comment your thoughts down below! Now, to the game.
Today, we've got Final Fantasy 3. Oh, you've never played Final Fantasy 3? You've only played 15, or 23, or whatever number they're on now. If you go to this website , you'll be able to play one of the best retro RPGs of all time, aside from Chrono Trigger. We'll be talking about the NES version, by the way.
The First Final Fantasy was great. The second was 'meh', at best. Now, we're talking about the third, which is, in my opinion the best 2D FF game ever made. In this game, you play as 4 heroes, whose names you can pick, who are given the title "Warriors of Light" by a crystal in a cave, which also gives them the power to switch jobs from the utterly …Read more >
Chaz sat in his Secret War Room (or "Chaz's room" as some uneducated Capitalist pigs might call it), secretly planning his next move. The time was right. Back in Wyoming, he had intentionally allowed Faenor's revolution to fail. Faenor would never be an effective leader, no better then Imrahil. But the revolution had made people question... it had shown weakness... what if Imrahil could truly be overthrown?
"BWAHAHAHAHAHA-HACKCOUGHHACK" Chaz's evil laughter dissipated into a coughing spell, as he heard his comrade knock on the door.
"Give the secret knock!" ordered Chaz.
"... do I have to?"
"GIVE THE SECRET KNOCK!"
The person on the other end pounded out the rhythm to the USSR anthem before Chaz unlatched the door and opened it. Standing be…Read more >
I would, first and foremost, like to thank my good friend Imrahil for engaging in a, mostly, civil manner, and producing a thought provoking, and, might I add quite long, blog post. However, it is my belief that my good friend's account is misleading in many ways, and as a result I have compiled the following response, which I believe is best read side by side in a separate tab alongside my good friend's post. If I have indeed, missed a certain point in my rebuttal then I encourage it be brought before me so that my good friend does not feel I am cherry picking among his arguments. Also, although I do appreciate the citations, they are of little use to me, since most are books and I am therefore unable to check them myself. For that reason…Read more >
With the approval of Imrahil, this story of my own making has been added to the Wiki canon. Now that i've got that out of the way, enjoy the story of, Uncle Dragon's run for office.There are a lot of strange things in this world thought Imrahil, but this was a bit too strange even for their family. Imrahil reclined on their couch, yawning for an extended period of time, almost falling back asleep with his bowl of Lucky Charms in hand. After their trip Uncle Dragon had mysteriously vanished, with him Imrahil’s cereal. He reached for the remote his eyes half closed and still groggy from his near-sleepless night, he could’ve sworn Faenor was still planning something about overthrowing someone, however he instead picked up a smoke bomb’s rema… Read more >
Out of all the outrageous lies that have been propagated by the Yankee victors over the years, none remains more prevalent, yet more absurd then the belief that "The South just wanted to keep its slaves!" I simply can't sit around to watch my beloved Dixie be maligned any more by these ridiculous lies that two seconds and an idiot with a search search browser could disprove.
Let me preface this by saying, as I'm sure you're all well aware, I do not defend or support the practice of slavery. It is an evil and outmoded form of labor that should not, and will not, ever return to this nation again. I would also like to say, this is not blindly copy and pasted from some blog on the internet, as some people are apt to do. I will attempt to cite a…Read more >

"Yeah, but the French election finally died down and it's foreeeeever until the UK elections come up." he whined. "Besides, these places just don't have good security measures anymore. The last time I hacked the UN database it took like a half hour. Hacking into Hillary's server took fifteen minutes, tops."

So, I have been with you guys for quite a long time, and you've grown on me. Imrahil's wacky stories, Faenor's crusades against MLP, all the absurd things we've said in chat, even Malta and Eureka's bitching (no offense meant, I am simply stating my humble opinion on the matter) have grown on me. You guys are always fun to be around, wether it's debating custom lore, the rules, world brainwa.. ehm, or the endless jokes about communism and MLP, we've been together a lot. I've never really been too open (being a really introverted teen asshole during most of this), but I've (mostly) enjoyed the ride nonetheless.

Faenor coaches Imrahil on dating technique. This should be good...
"Are you sure this is a good idea Faenor?"
Imrahil looked at himself in the mirror. His normally fluffy hair was slicked back with an abundance of hair gel, and instead of his normal leather jacket, he was wearing a full suit.
"Entirely, my dear brother. Christina is a very nice girl, and quite pretty I might add!"
"Don't you remember the last time you tried to set me up with one of your friends?"
"Come now, Imrahil, the past is in the past. I doubt the manager at the Red Lobster even remembers that explosion."

For too long has this bastard gone unpunished. For too long they have manipulated members making false accusations to get them hated by their fellow wiki members. FOR TOO LONG BUT NO LONGER. They have nearly torn this wiki apart for their crimes. MORGOTH THE FIRST DARK LORD!!! He framed Chaz for their crimes taking upon the mantle of a false detective! Chaz was getting too close to the truth and Morgoth knew he had to cover up the crime and to do so he used psychological projection.

Hello, all! Imrahil, here. I just finished making my newest, most original project yet. A spoof on "Choose Your Own Adventure" stuff, starring the Wiki Family.

You are Imrahil Alqua, a member of the Wiki Family. You awake to the sound of birds chirping, and the smell of sizzling bacon. The kitchen is right below your room, so the smells of breakfast waft upwards as you silence your alarm clock. With a tired groan you roll out of bed and go through your daily routine. You pull on some jeans, and find your favorite shirt (it's blue with a swan on it). Lastly you put on your br…

The grand finale! Everything finally comes together! By the way, in case you haven't noticed, this totally isn't the beginning. You need to start way back at Part 1
The sun glistened on the peaks of snow-capped mountains as the bus slowly winded its way through the beautiful lakes and cliffs of the Cascade Mountains. Finally, the mountains faded away, and they descended towards the gorgeous fresh-water inlet known as The Puget Sound, where lay Seattle.
Imrahil let out a low whistle as they descended down the slope and into the city.
It was gorgeous. It was built on multiple layers, separated by ornate retaining walls. Navigating through through the streets, Imrahil soon drove into the Queen Anne district, and finally reached Kerry Park.

Alright, so the road trip is now entering VERY boring territory. With no scenery or basically anything interesting to talk about, I was forced to branch out a little to find good storylines.
If you haven't already, you should probably start the adventure way back here with Part 1
Imrahil sighed with relief as he made his way down to the hotel dining area for breakfast. The sun was shining, it was a beautiful (if a little chilly) day, and it was practically the last day of the journey. Tomorrow was just a short jaunt over the Cascade Mountains from Spokane to Seattle. He grabbed some fruit from the buffet table, and sat down at a booth across from Chaz.
"Okay, I have the route all figured out." announced Imrahil, tracing the route on the map w…Read more >
Madness begins to set in... as a veteran of many road trips, I can safely say that the insanity of this chapter perhaps isn't too far off the mark for so many hours of driving.
If you haven't already, you must start the adventure clear back at part 1.
Imrahil sat with Chaz at the breakfast table in the hotel dining area. They were going over different maps for the day's travel.
"... so we go along Route 90," Imrahil was saying, tracing the route along the map with his finger, "We'll go through Wyoming, cut upward through Montana, then make west. By nightfall, we should hit Bozeman, where we'll stay for the night."
"Alright." said Chaz, "I've mapped out some good places for lunch. Sheridan looks good, then we can continue onto Livingston for di…

The adventure continues! If you haven't already, you need to start this series with Part 1
By the way, in case you haven't noticed, when Imrahil makes a phone call, the voice on the phone is always italicized. Don't confuse it with Morgoth's narrations, which are also italicized. I think you'll be able to tell the difference though :P
"Niiiiiiiice and easy..."
"C'mon, Imrahil, hurry it up!"
Patrick, Aramir and Dark were just behind him in line for the waffle machine. The waffle machine was kind of the highlight of any hotel breakfast.
Delicious, buttery, syrupy goodness. The hotel had a breakfast buffet in the lobby. A cynic might say that was the reason Imrahil booked the hotel in the first pace. Imrahil would whole-heartedly agree with that…

Hello, all! Imrahil here to introduce my latest piece of writing, Wiki Family: The Road Trip. After much deliberation, I decided it would be the best subject to do a full-length story on. I've had so many ideas for one buzzing around my head, but a road trip is just too long to do for any of the short stories I've written. But now that I actually have the time, I can finally write it, incorporating all the jokes and car-trip humor I want! It's divided into five chapters, and I'd really REALLY appreciate it if you could comment on each so I can get your thoughts. Special thanks to Chaz who helped me with some editing.
Note that although I've personally been through this route several times to visit family on the West Coast, mos…Read more >
Well, I didn't expect I'd be here again, six months later. But curiosity got the better of me, and if I must say so myself, you're all doing great! The place seems friendlier, the atmosphere is better, you have this nice background, everything seems fresh... That's why I've decided to return to the wiki, in hopes that I can get a fresh start here with the rest of you.
To those of you I have offended in the past, my apologies, and to those of you who have offended me, I forgive you. I hope the bad moments in the past can stay in the past, and that from now on things can be as good as they seem to be going already. Best of wishes to all,Read more >
No, this isn't the full length story either. This is kind of a warm-up I did, to get used to writing the different characters, and figure out some different characterizations. Enjoy!
Glosur's deep voice rang out across the dinning room table. But the chaos simply refused to subside. How had it come to this??

There were brothers, and then there were brothers. Berry and Shadow were the latter kind. They finished each-other's sentences. It kind of weirded Imrahil out sometim…

No, I'm afraid this isn't that full-length story, and I'm sorry if I got your hopes up. This is just a tiny oneshot introducing the latest member of the Wiki Family. Those of you that have seen Napoleon Dynamite might think of him as Uncle Rico. Those of you who have seen Psych! might think of him as Uncle Jack.
But to the Wiki Family, he is the flanky king of smooth-talking known as Uncle Dragon.
It was a beautiful sunny day in Columbus, Ohio. There was an unassuming large house, just on the northern tip of Upper Arlington, a middle-class neighborhood.

The name's Morgoth. Detective Morgoth, Private Eye.
--6:53 PM - Kitchen --
It was a smash and grab if I had ever seen one. Where there had once been a delicious slice of chocolate cake, now there was only brown crumbs. I chewed my candy cigarette thoughtfully, as I looked over the crime scene.
"Morgoth, would you quit talking to yourself? I'm trying to eat dinner here."
I looked to my older brother Imrahil, as he casually reclined at the dining table. He was a talkative sort of kid. He was tall and lanky, with long brown hair. You wouldn't know it by looking at him, but there was a flash of intelligence beneath those deep brown eyes.
"Uh... thanks? Seriously, could you please stop mumbling to yourself? It's starting to creep me- wait, are you g…
