We need a topic for PSN names. We have a stickied topic for the wii and 360. It couldn't be too bad to sticky the PSN names as well even though there is few of us.

Mine is Hammerman92.

Art / Left 2 Die
« on: February 10, 2009, 07:31:45 pm »
This is the first part of my friend Ross's zombie story. The original posted on Deviant Art.

All I could hear was the tapping of my feet as I ran. The road was slick from the rain. It had been pouring down only a few hours before. The sun had gone down around the time that it stopped. Every few steps I would land in a puddle, splashing water in all directions. It was dark. There was no sound, no crickets, no wind, and no life. The world was dead. And all I could listen to was the noise that my feet made.
My breathing was becoming heavier. I had to stop soon or I would collapse, but I couldn't stop. If I did, something could happen. My gun bounced up and down as I sprinted down the street. The bag I carried shifted. I adjusted quickly as I moved. I kept a close watch on each of the streets I passed. I had to stay aware. No matter how tired I became I couldn't fall asleep. I had to keep moving. Where to? I didn't know. I just had to keep going.

I pulled my gun from my back. I slipped out the rifle's clip and checked the bullets. I only had a few more shots left. If I didn't find a weapon's outlet soon I'd be done for. A drug store also wasn't a bad idea. If I found some anti-drowsiness pills I would last longer. I had to stop sometime. It would be better if I took a break in a gun shop rather than out in the open.

    Quickly I stopped running. I ripped my pack off of my back and got out two items, a map and flashlight. I put my hands around the light to cover it up form the sides. I then opened up the map. I scanned over the area of Denver. There had to be a store somewhere... I spotted one! I glanced at my surroundings quickly to make sure I was alone then back at the map. The drug and ammunition stores were almost side by side. Silently I shut of the flashlight and folded up the map. Putting them both away again I headed east to my destination.

      After another solid hour of running I made it to the heart of Denver. As much as I hated heading to the heart of things, it was the only shop close enough. The place was a mess. All of the shops' windows were broken. Car littered the streets. I might have checked the cars, but it would have attracted things I did not want to attract. Even though no one was around I didn't want to test that fact. I was grateful for my loneliness. Up to this point I had been very lucky to not find many people. Though that fact also scared me. Where was everyone? With a population the size of Denver I should have been swarmed a long time ago. Were they hiding and waiting to strike? At this point I was hoping that my enemy wasn't smart enough to formulate such a plan. At any rate getting into the shop and getting out of town would be the best course of action.   

     I climbed in through the door's broken glass. My shoes crackled as I walked across the broken glass. Cautiously I checked every inch of the shop. I looked in every nook and cranny. Hell, I even checked the ceiling! There was nothing in the drug store. All I found has some knocked over shelves and drugs scattered across the floor. In my explorations I also found a phone, but I was saddened to find that the line was dead. I tried looking through the bottles stroon across the floor. The only bottle I found that actually still had pills in it was pain medicine. I grabbed it anyways. Even if I didn't want to stop any pain I could use it to commit suicide by overdosing. I just hoped that it didn't come to that.

     I then went back out of the shop. Making sure there was no one around I crossed the street to my next stop. The gun shop was about the same. If I had any luck left there would at least still be some rifle ammo left over. I was pretty sure that the place would have been cleaned out by locals already. Once again I made my way inside. I sulked my way to the back of the store. As I went along I looked around with my flashlight. As I had suspected the place was bare. There was only a box of shells on the counter next to a computer. I walked around the back of the counter. My mouth almost fell open as I found that it was not only shells, but a shotgun too. My luck had definitely increased.

     As I was loading up the gun I noticed something to my left. The monitor’s power light was blinking. There was no way in hell a computer could still be running! It had been at least eight or nine months since the last power generators had shut down. But as I thought about it the light blinked on. So instead of reasoning with logic I pushed it. The monitor immediately clicked on. My eyes widened as I saw what was on the screen. "Evacuation in 56:42"

     It couldn't be true. Everyone else was dead. There was no one left. I had accepted that there wasn't going to be any rescue. Each minute I stared at the clock it decreased by one. This could not be happening. Not only had there been a new gun on the counter but now that was some mysterious computer claiming to be an evacuation! There was absolutely no way I was going to be fooled by some stupid computer. I decided to ignore the message and search on. As soon as I had cleaned the store out I was leaving. And that was final!

     I found a door leading to a basement behind the counter. I quickly forgot out the computer and searched some more. As fast as possible I went through each item in the basement. I could be attacked at any moment and in the basement I'd be pinned down. But as I went deeper into the basement I heard a sound. It was a sound I hadn't heard in quite some time. I moved closer to it. It didn't sound like anything harmful. It was more of an electric noise. Almost as though there was something running. Maybe it was a generator. If it was it would explain that whole computer incident upstairs. As I moved closer it became more apparent that it was a generator. It sounded very old, but at least it was working.
As I rounded the last corner my flashlight met with it. An old dusty one sitting up against a wall. As I observed the machine I noticed a panel on the wall. It seemed to have many switches on it. Above the panel was a large sign stating "DO NOT TOUCH". I realized that it would be foolish to disobey the sign, but I just wanted to turn on the basement lights. If I shut the door to the basement the light wouldn't attract anyone. Then I could peruse the downstairs with ease. It would make my job go so much faster.
I put my bag and rifle down next to the generator. I then made a dash for the door with my shotgun and flashlight. As soon as I got to the door I checked outside the shop for any people. After that I looked in the shop for roof access. If I was attacked that would be the best spot to go for. I found a ladder leading to a trap door for the roof. I made sure to remember the spot and then headed back down. Once next to the panel again I started to read of the labels above the switches. There were eight switches. Six had labels that clearly stated areas of the building that didn't deal with the basement. The other two switches labels were scratched. Damn! One had to turn on the basement lights. I sat thinking for a moment on the consequences.

     "No, the upstairs light switch isn't listed either! Do I really want to risk being spotted for connivance?" I asked myself as I stood there thinking. If I turned on the wrong switch it would all be over. But then again, there was a small chance that the upstairs lights were broken by whoever put the generator and computer there. It did seem plausible that they would do that for stupid people like me. Though if they did, why not just simply right the labels back in. It was all too confusing and there were too many things that could go wrong. I couldn't do it. I had to be smart and not get caught.
I lifted my pack and through it on my back. I also slung my rifle over my back and headed back to the basement door. As I walked away I felt a resistance, as though my pack had caught on something. I turned around just in time to see the switch click into its downward position. I whipped out my flashlight and shined it one the switch. One of my bags straps had caught on the switch when I was throwing it on. I looked at which switch it had caught on.

     "****!" I yelled. As my light hit the label it plainly read. "Rooftop Lights"
With amazing speed I flipped the breaker back off. Hoping that no harm was done I dashed for the upstairs. I got outside the shop just in time to see a large mass of people in the distance. From the looks of it they were moving pretty slow. I kept my cool and pulled out a grenade from my pack. I was just about to pull the pin when I realized something. Grenades produce light, which would only bring more of them. I would have to hold off on the explosions. I ran back into the shop and up the ladder. I pushed on the trap door, but it wouldn't budge. What the hell?! Why hadn't I tried the door before I made it was escape route?


Storytelling and Roleplaying / The knight and ninja
« on: October 07, 2008, 06:42:07 pm »
Here is a story written by my friend Ross. He asked me to post this here for him to get feedback
   The two stood in a stalemate. Both were perfectly still as the wind rustled their armor. The ninja kept his eyes on his surrondings, looking for a way to use it to his advantage. The knight looked nowhere but the ninja. His reaction time would have to be fast to stop the man's quick attacks.
   Both circled each other, neither gaining or loosing ground. As long as the knight kept him in the open he might have a chance. His adjusted his shield and swirled his blade in a circle, showing that he was ready.
   With lightning speed the ninja ran for the meadow's edge. The knight did not move to follow. He had to stay away from object that the ninja could hide behind. His eyes went after the ninja as he disappeared into the bushes at the edge of the clearing. No sound was made after his entered them. The knight took up a battle stance, ready for ranged attack.
   Suddenly a dagger flew from behind the knight. With great agility he turn just in time to hit it to the side with his massive shield. It landed in the ground not far from him. He made no motion to retrieve it, that would only leave him open to attack. He returned to scanning the bushes, waiting for the ninja to emerge. There was no indecation of him. The only thing that could be heard was the tinkle of his mail in the summer's breeze.
   It was starting to get dark. If the sun fell then there was no way he could beat the silent foe. As the sun came close to the horizon the knight began to sweat. No matter, he continued to stand at the ready. He wasn't going out without a fight. His eyes just kept looking around for some trace of the ninja.
   In the bushes, the ninja moved quickly and silently. Avoiding sticks and branches he easily made his way around the meadow a few times. He tried to detect flaws in the knight's defense, but there were none. It was obvious that he would have to strike fast if he wished to win. He decided on a tactic that involved mutli tasking, attacking with both daggers and trying to get around his shield. The ninja then noticed the sun, moving slowly down and covering the land in darkness. Nah, he thought, if he waited for darkness then it wouldn't be a challenge. It had been a long time since he'd had a good fight. He wanted to make this one last.
   Within only a second or two, four daggers flew from different sides of the meadow's edge. The knight was so suprised at the ninja's speed that he barely had time to block the attacks. He spun, throwing he shield up to stop the daggers. But before he could think more came from a bush behind him. He didn't have enough time to turn with his heavy shield, so he dropped it. Spinning as fast a possible he batted the knifes away with his sword, but on the last one he missed. He was able to dodge the knife enough so that it only cut his shoulder. Damn, he thought, the daggers must be incredible sharp to cut through his tough mail.
   Not a second after cutting the knight the ninja dashed from the bushes. He ran towards the knight, throwing daggers as he went. He zig zagged to avoid a common attack point. His speed was unhuman as he managed to cover the long distance in seconds. As the daggers flew towards the knight he dropped to his knees to avoid them. As they got lower he bent over backwards, so he was flat with the ground. He picked up his shield and put it in the ground in front of him so that the daggers bounced off of it. As the ninja drew closer he dropped his throwing knives and puled out his two daggers, preparing to battle.
   At the very instant the ninja got to the shield he jumped, hoping that he might fling himself over it. The knight would not be fooled though. In one motion he stood and slammed the shield into the leaping ninja. It sent the ninja flying backwards, but he still somehow managed to land on his feet. As he hit the ground his feet slid backwards in the dirt, leaving a trail of mud in front of him.
   Both stared at each other for a moment. The ninja smiled, "I must congragulate you! I've not had a foe of your caliber in quite some time. It will be a pleasure to kill you." The knight just stared into the ninja's eyes and said, "We shall see."
   The ninja's light cloth flapped in the wind. There was only a little bit of daylight left. Just enough time to deal with the knight. He might even get home for supper!
   Beginning to feel bored with just standing there, the ninja twirled his dagger in his right hand. As he did this the knight watched his hands closely. Ninjas were known for attacking when you least expected it. The ninja spun his dagger in his hand and then threw it up about a foot in the air, playfully. The knight's eyes followed the dagger into the air. In a quick move the ninja pulled out his last remaining throwing knife, with his free hand, and flung it at the knight. Caught off guard, the knight stumbled backwards as the knife met his leg. With little hesitation the ninja caught the dagger he had thrown into the air and began his on slaught.
   The knight recovered from the blow just in time to take up his defensive stance. The ninja attacked him from the front, then the side, then the back. His attacks were quick and powerful. The knight knew that he couldn't win unless he attacked. He thrusted his sword forward but the ninja easily dodged to the side of it. Then when his sword was in the stabbing motion the ninja went around his arm and jammed his dagger in the knight's side. He clenched his teeth as blood ran from the wound. The ninja appeared in front of the knight and tested the shields strength by hitting it a few times with his dagger. It was solid. The knight swung his sword around his a circle, spinning his body. Bending over backwards the ninja was grazed by the blade's sharp edge. It cut open a small wound on his chest. He quickly jumped back away as the knight came around a second time.
   He stopped spinning and chuckled at the ninja. "So you can bleed." The ninja took one look down at his shirt and then ran back into the battle. This time the knight was ready for him. As the ninja appeared on each side of him he quickly turned and hit away the strikes with his tough metal shield. The ninja moved behind him and acidently hesitated in his attack. In one powerful move the knight turned and smacked the ninja right across the face with his shield. Stunned, the ninja was forced to duck and dodge as the knight followed up with repetative sword attacks.
   The ninja tripped on a rock while moving away from the attacks and fell on his back. A paniced look appeared on his face as he stared up at the charging knight. Running at him the knight yelled and slammed his sword down as hard as possible. A cloud of dust flew up into the air as his sword met with the ground rather than the ninja. The dust quickly disappeared to reveal the ninja crouched on the ground right in front the sword. He must have somehow rolled over backwards to avoid the sword. The knight tried to stand up, but found that his blade was lodged in the mud. A worried look crossed the knight's face as the ninja realized what was going on.
   The knight was leaning over with his hand on the sword in the ground. At a fast pace the ninja stood and ran to the knight. He ran straight up the blades sharp edge that was sticking out of the ground towards the knight. Noticing that he was in serious trouble the knight took his hand off of his sword and removed his dagger from his belt. He stabbed it upwards at the on running ninja. The ninja was just barely able to grab the knight's arm and fling himself over the dagger and the knight. In mid air he twisted to turn towards the knight. As he landed on the ground he ripped the knight's helmet off and put a dagger to his neck.
   He pulled him up right and spoke, "It seems that I am the victor of this conflict. I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to kill you now." He smiled at the thought. Then, he slit the knight's throat. He chuckled as the knight died. But as blood poured from the knight's neck he mustered up his last strength. With a vengful scream he ripped his long sword from the dirt and plunged it into his heart. The sword went through his body and into the ninja's already sliced chest. The ninja's evil smile turned to suprise as blood streamed from his mouth. The ninja's limp body slid off of the sword and fell to the ground, dead. The knight fell to his knees and then went face first into the dirt, his sword still sticking out of his back.
   Both died there in that meadow, neither winning nor losing. And as the sun finally set that day many things happened. The world mourned for the loss of their heroic knight, their savior. And even the thieves guild gave tribute to the ninja, one of their finest. Their homelands were never quite the same. Everything grew peaceful and calm. All was good, until the wars of later years, but that, is a story, for another time.
