Wood Cutters son (short)
"We live a simple life here, son." The thick foliage above shaded the grassy forest path. "The trees populate these woods. As do we and many other woodland animals. The trees are their home." The little boy walking beside the burly man nearly jumped as he heard an animals cry in the distance. His father laughed. "No need to fear, my son. If you respect the forest, take care of it and never be greedy when you harvest wood. Then the Woodlands will accept you, and harbor you. As long as we give back." He turned abruptly off of the well-beaten path, kneeling at a small pile of freshly disturbed dirt as his son stumbled to keep up. "Some day, you will become the woodcutter my son." Hansel's father started, reaching into his pocket. "But before you learn to take, you must learn to give." He passed something to the youth, a small pine cone. "Here, plant this young one." 
Dirt was moved, a hole made and tiny tree seed was placed in the loamy soil before being buried under t

Metal monsters
The soft wurr and clicking of machinery filled the silence of the subterranean catacombs as Dycroft traversed the shadowy halls. The massive light on his head illuminated the seemingly endless maze, but he knew where he was going. His mechanical mind given sentience by powerful magic could effortlessly decern the subtle differences on the carved stone walls. He never went through the same corridor twice. "Humm da doo be ba ba~" He sang to pass the time.
The great conqueror had been drawn to these expansive caverns dug beneath a once mighty kings castle by tales of an item of great power hidden somewhere down here. And of the steel golem tasked with guarding this unknown power. 
Were his lips made of flesh the corners of his mouth would turn up in a confident smirk? Dycroft was more than sure he could handle some decades old golem that's been rusting down here in the murky darkness for years. 
The automaton lifted an arm and wa

Over for dinner (Short)
The warm aroma of fresh bread wafted through the house, as Daniel sat at the dinner table, alone and playing with a spoon, watching how the bright light that poured in through the open window above with his large green eyes. And a soft breeze played with his hair, carrying with it pollen from the many flowers blooming outside. "A-Ah AHCHOO!" He sneezed, rubbing his snout. 
Oh, bless you!" Nicole said, poking her head out of the kitchen, her golden eyes glowing dimly and her large pointed ears twitching. She stepped out, a small tray held in her paws and dressed in her silken maid outfit. "Thank you so much for joining us for supper, Daniel." She mewled, setting the small potatoes with shredded bacon and cheese appetizers on the table. "And sorry about the wait, we're working hard... Well, Nik is." 
"Just Nik?" Nicole nodded her long tail twitching. 
"Yes, Nikkie is the one of us who can cook, being all tamed and stuff. Its overrated really. If it was my ch

Moneys not enough | my name (PT3)
Sucidad stepped inside, wiping his paws on the doormat to clean them of mud and taking off his sodden cloak, hanging it beside the door. His host wrinkled her snout, the scent of wet dog and mud heavy on the air. 
"So what brings you to these parts?" The collie asked, stepping past the smaller coyote to throw another log on the fire that roared in the fireplace. Sucidad shrugged. 
"There was no need for me back where I came from." Sucidad took off his hat, letting his pointed ears stand up. His host took note of the round scar on his ear. She herself was a larger woman, with a thick brown and milky white pelt with a simple pale blue dress, faded from countless washings. 
"Oh? And where did you come from, if I may." 
"New Nenash." 
"Ahhh, the big city." Sucidad grunted and looked into the flames. "There was once some horse tribes assaulting the outlying homes, bullying them and stealing all they had. And it was my job to protect the innocent until

Money's not enough| More then rain (PT2)
Hannibal stepped out of the small hut, the bottle in his hands ringing as rain drops fell upon the glass. 
Charlie was waiting for him just a few steps away,  dressed like her employer in a loose cloak to hide the duel light pistols on ether hip. "Hannibal?" She asked, seeing his uncharacteristically furrowed brow, her eyes dropping to the bottle. "She gave you booze?" Hannibal looked down and read the label. 
"I don't understand it, myself..." He muttered softly, gripping the bottle by the neck and walking past hid bodyguard into the street. "Come on, lets go home. 
Charlie looked at him oddly. Normally he was so cheery. But, not now. 
"Charlie?"
"Yeah?" 
"Why is there an unconscious young man here slumped against the wall?" She shrugged. 
"He called me a bad word."

Money's not Enough (Prologue)
Smog from the nearby train yard filled the air.
The jackal gagged on the stench, the scented handkerchief tied around his head doing little to filter the thick smoggy air. He wiped his watering eyes with a paw, turning his eyes to the street ahead. 
This place was a far contrast from where he normally visited in New Nenash. He was used to a life of luxury, frequenting the many opportunities for fine dining in the richer parts of town. 
But judging from the stench, the only meal he could get here would be just as offensive to his tongue as it would be to his nose. 
Eyes belonging to many suspicious characters watched him from across the street from the darkness and the cracks in the dilapidated buildings, feeling like claws digging into his back as the small canine turned into a secluded alleyway, an inverted triangle emblazoned with dark red paint on the buildings on either side. 
A dirty puddle greeted his bare hind paws as the shadows embraced

(RP Starter) Beached
The seemingly endless sea shimmered in the golden sun, and the moist sand was soft under your feet as you walked along the shore. The wind played with your hair as you walked. 
This was a small beach, hidden from the world and a great place to retreat when you wanted some alone time. 
There was a few stones nearby from where you stood, smoothed from eons of waves washing over their surface. You've seen them many times... But, there was something different today. Something with glossy brown and white scales laid beside the rocks, the slowly rising tide waters lapping at his thick finned tail. 
It was a slender shark, a dog fish to be exact. Wearing a worn pair of black swim trunks with silver stripes, his light brown and creamy white scales covered in a layer of dried sand and what appeared to be a be a knot of soggy rope, and old plastic was wrapped around his body and fins, undoubtedly restricting his ability to swim. And judging from how discolored his three finge

Shyguys (Short)
Night had fallen upon the mushroom kingdom and all that lit the rolling fields now were the stars above. 
And the water of the nearby lake shimmered like liquid sapphire. 
Two short figures walked along the lakeside, their brightly colored robes made of a cobalt yellow and a rosy shade of red respectively, with pale white masks obscuring their faces. Shy-Guys with their hands pressed together. One of the pair, the taller one clad in red, broke their hold to kneel down, plucking a dandelion from the grass. 
Smiling beneath his mask, Red turned to the smaller shyguy clad in gold. 
The younger Gold held a hand to his cheek, accepting the gift and holding the flower to his mask and drinking in its pleasant scent before tucking the flower under the leather strap that held his mask on, much to the enjoyment of the one who had gifted it to him. 
Time passed. 
Under the moons silvery glow the sand that lined the shores of the lake were lik

I haven't been able to get a story done and art is out of the question. So imma fill the gap with a real story of an odd hobby I have. ^^

Preface:
Many years ago, I don't even know how old I was at the time, but I remember visiting with a friend and they had a board game. (not battleblocks) I can't for the life of me say what it was called, but I remember its board was a bunch of hexagons on little plastic boards so you could make actual slopes or clifs to play on. And it came with a crap ton of little units, each with their own cards having ther own stats and really cool figurines...
And as cool as that can sound, I don't remember it being very tedious and boring, failing to remain entertaining as you struggle to remember the complex rules, only to need rolling a few dice in play. (I seriously remember several pages just about how the movement was affected by elevation and falling) 
In short, it sucked once you got into the game, albeit still really pretty to look at. Nevertheless, however bad it was I was still jealous. My family said I should buy it. But it was to expensive... So It was obvious what the next thing I should do... I made my own game! :la: 

Actual story:
Battle Blocks was my first board game I made completely by myself. It wasn't a suer amazing game but still a matter of pride for me even today looking back. Considering my age at the time. And I do remember it honestly being better then the other game if simply for the simplicity of the rules. Which I will detail if anyone would like me too ^^
And I still have all that I will list here that I used to play my game of BattleBlocks. 
1x 8x8 chess board, preferably a larger one. 
4x towers of eight Duplo's or lego blocks, each of a difrent color (Red, Green, Yellow and Blue) 
6d6 dice. 
4x paper cards or scraps of paper although these are optional and merely better for newer players. 


A lot of simple things, and little me easily got all them and played a little. I shant bore the average reader with the exact rules, nor do I remember all the small things I changed over time to it. 
But the core gameplay was that every block was a single unit, which you feilded by rolling a five or six on a 1d6 at the start of your turn. And then you moved it around the board (direct colors having differing movement speeds) and when you wanted to attack you rolled a number of dice equal to your attack score and your opponent rolled for their defense score. (defender wins ties) and the loser is taken off the board. 

Simple, but deceptively entertaining and has the potential for rule changes and the like. ^^ 
And it has led to me working on a full table top RPG game which I've mentioned before and a attempt at making a card game based off of Super Smash bros and the start to a home made version of card wars (something from adventure time) 

I have no idea if it would be a good idea to try and marker this weird little hobby of mine. But I still enjoy dabbling in the field of game making. :la:

Hansel's father started, reaching into his pocket. "But before you learn to take, you must learn to give." He passed something to the youth, a small pine cone. "Here, plant this young one." 
Dirt was moved, a hole made and tiny tree seed was placed in the loamy soil before being buried under the dirt. "Good." The woodsman smiled, ruffling his son's hair softly. "Now, your task for the day is simple, little one. I have won the trust of the forest guardians, and I have full trust that you can wonder the woods safely. And as you do, I want you to find and plant what you can, show your love for the trees, and life. Do that, and I will let you handle my mighty axe tomorrow, ok?" Hansel smiled and nodded. "Have fun, Hansel. Supper will be ready when you come home." 

From a short distance away, a pair of dark purple eyes watched them converse, hidden behind one of the forests many trees. He smiled a little, watching the youth plant a fresh tree. 
He ducked behind the tree as the boy took off, running into the woods and passing by his tree, seemingly unaware of his presence. But as Hansel disappeared into the bushes, he stepped out of his hiding spot. The woodcutter nodded, seeing the young forest spirit, smiling. He recognized the young creature, seeing him wandering the forest paths and following the woodcutter as he did his work. The forest dwelling youth seemed fascinated with humans, and eager to spend time with them. "Greetings friend. Might I request you look over my son for the day? He's growing up to be a fine young boy, but I still worry for him..." 
Maple smiled, his eyes shimmering in the light as he nodded, yes. 

Time passed. And the sun slowly started to descend from its throne in the sky. Maple found Hansel kneeling on the cool grass in a sunbathed clearing, clumsily creating a hole in the turf with his dull belt knife, the seeding head of a dandelion held in his other hand. Maple smiled. 
"Those don't need to be buried, Little Hansel." he said, voice like the wind through the trees. Hansel looked up from the small hole as maple pushed his pale brown hair out of his eyes and knelt beside the boy, gingerly taking the flower and holding it up into the air. Almost on cue, A warm summer breeze picked up, carrying the seeds away on the breeze. Hansel smiled, standing up and chasing them as they flew, racing through the brush. "Hehe, hey! Wait up!"

So this was a specal story for me. Less of a story, and more of a thing I wanted to do. And a way to practice my ability to write farytale style. ^^

So please, if you have any criticism. Constructive or otherwise. Please gimme! o^o
I'm all ears. ^^
