A new concept within The Eyes of the Dark Realm: The Shadow-Stalkers

Post by John Helsythe Amaltheria on Fri Oct 14, 2011 11:46 am

Shadow-Stalkers

A Shadow-Stalker is a person of any race who got abducted by the cult and forcefully infused, on a rare ocassion willingly, with shadow energies by the wicked cultists of The Eyes of the Dark Realm. There's little known about these grim beings, although rumours do circulate among people who tend to refer to them as Light Hunters or Inquisitors of Darkness.

It is a concept that came to life through the cunning minds of The Defiler's Lieutenants, as until now The Chaper of Holy Anethion has proven to be the most dangerous threat and it is therefore that his new concept is a direct counter force to the Anethionean Inquisition. Though, their tasks are more broad-minded than just that. Although the status of a Shadow Stalker will most likely never rise above that of a minion, even the ascendants tend to fear for this new concept as they keep their own ranks in check as well, mercilessly and relentlessly.

The most experienced paladins could probably sense a dark aura about these Shadow-Stalkers, hence most people should not fear them about, for example, the Cathedral of Light. The Shadow-Stalker can be easily recognized by its dark-leather amour, hooded, masked and cloaked, and an arsenal of sinister weapons.

The Shadow-Stalker is a deadly enemy that's fighting with weapons, enhancing said weapons with Shadow Magic or using various other unique shadow abilities. It even feeds on shadow magic used against them. They're solemnly specialized in combating the followers of The Light, having a high resistance versus abilities like Holy Smites (it would only increase its appetite to slay its enemy!), and they're able to sense a holy aura about a paladin, or holy priest. It goes that far that it can track the faithful of the Light by their scent, as if drawn to it like bees to flowers.

These incarnates of the Dark communicate with eachother through whispering hisses, or ear penetrating screeches carried by the wind.

Powerful creatures is what they indeed are...however, little on Azeroth is perfect. It's apparent that nature, life giving magic is what damages these beings severely. Not only is this magic very useful versus the Shadow-Stalker, they fear it greatly as well for that matter, in the sense of panicing and fleeing for it. It's not the only thing they fear however. As these beings live on Azeroth with the undying hunger to work for The Defiler, and to obliterate everything Light-related, death is one of their biggest fears. For once they are dead, they are no longer able to sate their ever present hunger...feed their addiction.

((Disclaimer: Classes who wear leather (though maybe paired with some mail or clothes) are able to join in on this concept, although the spots for this concept are limited. Check out our guild registry for more information. http://www.defiasrp.com/t3623-eyes-of-the-dark-realm-updated-14-10-2011))


Edit: We decided to give this concept a uniform. It requiers level 70:

This looks like something I could sink my teeth into. I adore playing the dark stalker types... I doubt I'd have room for a 3rd rogue though. x) My favourite class, to RP as and play OOC too.

Forced IC, it would still need to be agreed upon OOC however. Normal recruitment still stands, For the Shadow-Stalker position we where only going to create a one-off batch of around 4. Chosen out of experienced roleplayers who are interested in the concept and would commit to it on a medium-long term basis.

Forced recruitment would likely be kidnapping, brain washing, rituals based around infusing the subject with Shadow magic (So much that they are no longer "(Insert race here)" and fed lies/information on Light devotees on Azeroth. Then released like an aimed cannon.

They won't remember their life, they will be what they are now, creatures/beings of shadow hell-bent on the destruction of the Light on Azeroth.

Once they are killed/gone/dead that is it, this won't be a mass production factory, the resources and effort to carry this out will be made so it is not a realistic solution to the Defilers plans.

On a major note, they are expendable. We don't care if they are caught, they have nothing to do with us IC Wink and are there to turn the tables (for once). It's time for the Lightdogs to fear walking the streets alone, wearing their tabards and waving their flags in public.

((None of what I said is set in stone, a general idea or what we are going for if you will, just what me and Crojwin spoke about today.))

I love the idea. May the shadow reign and shake the faith in the light that was once everything for humans.

"Night sky is filled with smoke. Stormwind is ablaze. The flames of revolution burning bright, painting the midnight sky with a red glow. People are slaughtering each other, the fires glowing in their eyes as they bring their makeshift weapons upon those who still defend "the rightful ruler". Then a white glow shines trough the ranks, soothing the minds of those who are touched by the light. Defenders of the light have come to guide the people. The crowd calms down and when the light wielders sigh in relief people step forward from the crowd. They throw their dark capes aside, revealing dark armor and weapons hidden under. Down from the roofs and trough shadows more people in dark armor and robes appear. A man in dark armor steps forward and points his sword towards the defenders of the light, saying: "The shadow shall overcome light". His words are followed by the sound of countless weapons drawn and the forces of darkness charges forward...."

Why can't you get involved? There is always room in the Cult even if this plot is not something that is doable.

This looks good to me, I'm liking the idea of being hunted for wearing the tabard

Does kind of remind me of the horde rp guild called Shadowstalkers, though they're inactive at the moment :p

Lack of available time to properly commit to it Smile what with uni, work, Gf, and everything in between, i hardly have time to keep up with two of my characters, and a third is being attempted. a fourth would end me.

Bumping this because we got some spots for this still. This concept works good
for one's alt.

Edit: We've decided, by the way, that the Shadow-Stalkers wear the same attire. It requiers level 70:
