It is just a game, and as serious as any other game, an addiction for the gamers. I am working up (very slowly) a manuscript (tip-sheet) for those who use the Amazon character in this role-playing intricate game. Once in a while, little tid-bits like this are being woven into the story. Such fun ...



Killing Duriel
by Ted L Glines

Across the Canyon of the Magi
down through darkly labyrinths
to the Tomb of Tal Rasha
where Duriel lays in wait
to horribly kill you
but you are the hero
mighty Amazon
bound to this Quest
by all that's pure and good
you will kill Duriel or die
and again and again
always rising from the dead
to do it all again
--- one more time ---
at the tomb's magic-blasted gate
--- click ---
into the dark

Duriel is there
huge tree-slug/lobster monster
turns and rushes
you summon the Decoy
Duriel pauses
long enough to kill the Decoy
you are firing wildly
while your partner stands firm
firing arrow after arrow
until Duriel turns to her
and you hear her death-cry
as Duriel rushes upon you
those pincers slashing down
now it's toe-to-toe
no time to run
no where to go
arrow after arrow goes into Duriel
your Health-Globe drains out
you only have 16 Health-Potions
click - click - click
keep firing arrows
time stands still
he is killing you again
the final Health-Potion is used
arrows still slamming into Duriel
it is almost the end
--- of you ---
when Duriel explodes
and the gound shakes
the cavern rocks
huge boulders fall from above
and in the silence which follows
while your heart slows
you turn to
the inner sanctum of Tal Rasha
where Archangel Tyrael lies clained
above the burning flames

the Quest never ends ...

An interesting write my games are very addictive, just as the Internet, computers, playing cards, and other such entertainment that takes our minds away from the world in which we live. It's sad how video games now dominate most children's lives, but even more sad that parents use video games for a babysitter. I allowed my children to have video games, but they were limited on the time they played them, just as they were with the computer at a later age...I have to be careful myself or I will find my own self surfing, reading, and devouring far too much time on the web myself. When I was growing up we were encouraged to get outside and play, ride our bikes, play ball, go fishing, hide and seek, something that kept us physically active which helped to keep us healthier and at a healthy weight. Today in my classroom alone I have five children who are overweight and considered obese! That's a scary thought...I'm not knocking video games at all, they are great for the imagination, coordination, entertainment, but kids should play them for a limited time. Your write is creative and very clever, I can see how this would be a great idea! Enjoyed...sorry for the long opinion, I guess that's the teacher in me coming out....I had one little girl who kept falling asleep because she had played a game most of the night! Your write was great!

The standard games like baseball and football, like church, are losing followers in droves. This is sad but true. In the case of the major sports, it may be because of the self-tarnishment of the heros. In the case of the church, there are already too many books about the causes. The proliferation of Internet access around the world has provided interactive role-playing games like Final Fantasy and Diablo. It is a fantasy gaming arena where the viewer is an active participant, and perhaps that is its main drawing card. I research such things (it's an MSW thing). Consider all the small cities where there are little or no fun activities provided for kids (Texarkana with its 65+ thousand population is like that) and places where outside adult activities are limited to bars, and we see reasons for the success of the fantasy games. It is a sign of our times.

Interesting write and all the drama of Dungeons and Dragons...I think you are on to somthing with this one...might consider dropping in little precurser notes of explanation in between some of the lines for lay people...just an idea.

I for one, could never understand the attraction to these games. Children now-a-days have either play stations, game boys or whatever other new method of challenging the world may be out there. Whatever happened to football, baseball or soccer. Please don't tell me those are games also. I guess reality is only a state of mind. Blessings Always, Paul.

Maybe you should say killing-children-brain-cells which in the future wouldn't understand the difference between reality and fantasy, that you can't kill but once.
More weird the games more profit.
Limit?...not in sight.

Neither does the revenue from stupid games....That is why they prolifirate. Sad statement. These people, both kids and so called adults, are truly addicted to these games just as much so as a heroin addict. An unhealthy escape from the reality, no matter what modality it takes is still an addiction.

Nice work, this truly will help keep peotry alive!
