Stone Rings

From Realm of Magic
Jump to: navigation, search

The stone-rings are coming from a time, which is lying far away in the past. There are sagas about beings called the Avatar, the Guardian and Lord British. Other stories are telling, that the stone-rings are parts of the being we live on: The Earth. It's said, that the Earth is nothing as an own living organism, which is living in symbiosis with creatures, which are living in the earth. Noone did ever saw them, but there are rumors about strange magical methods they use. Many mortals awake in the morning, believing that they was visited in their dreams by this creatures.

The sagas about the stone-rings are big. But even more surprising is the power of the stone-rings at those who found out their secret. Exploreres found out, that there are 16 stone-rings and 8 colored stones in the world. There must be a kind of connection between these stones: Once you pat the right colored stone in a stone-ring, the colored stone vanishes in a puff of smoke and you'll be teleported to another stone-ring. Using another stone can bring you back, or just to another stone-ring.

Froboz, the mage, made the theory, that there is a kind of energy hiding in these colored stones, which will be used for every teleport. Cause of this, so Froboz, the stones disappear, if using them. But it's still a miracle, why all other stones of the same color will vanish out of the inventory too, if the user don't protect them in a bag.

The 16 stone-rings are devided about all known parts of the world. You'll find them at the Elven Kingdom, near Moonglow, in the Demon Space, at destroyed mansions and at places where no mortal ever was.

Explorers who find out the secret ways, each colored stones opens, will be able to reach fast every place in the world, without needing the help of a rifter or summoner.

As you can see, you     Elven Kingdom
can get into this       Moonglow
route from the Stone    -> back to [Al'khandriis]]
Ring, but it doesn't
lead back there.        Same here with Iaitanto
                        as with the Stone Ring.

P.S.
This list should be complete. There are (until now) no other
stones than the ones I have used above.
There are (until now) only the sixteen stone rings described
above.
This realm, however, is changing constantly. Should something
change regarding the stone circles, please mud-mail me or
e-mail me at stu32746@mail.uni-kiel.de so I can update it.

That's all there is to know about this topic right now.
Just one thing:
All the above zones are now open to ANYBODY who can afford
to buy the needed stones. I warn all newbies now that they
might enter a zone where they don't even stand a CHANCE of
surviving. Proceed with caution and enter at your own risk.
