Once upon a time, there were ten kingdoms uniting the land. Elves, fairies, humans and all manner of other such odd creatures lived in rather putrid harmony with each other. Everything was peaceful and everyone was nice. Bah! Just when the peace was getting comfortable enough for everyone to become big fleshy blobs of happiness, he came! The dark lord and his army of darkness (Including myself) swept across the land like acne across a sweaty overfed teenager's face! By the time any of those goody-two-shoes "light magic" gobbledygooks understood what was going on, the Master had conquered half the kingdoms like stealing candy from an orphan!
Our great and glorious master used his new lands to erect a tower from which he ruled the lands he conquered with an iron fist (and liberal application of smiting) and expanded in to the other kingdoms. And then he unexpectedly died after mistaking which glass of wine he'd poisoned for a delegate and which one he'd sweetened with the tears of the enslaved masses. And of course we minions were left over a barrel, so to speak. What good are minions without a master? No bloody good, that's what!
So, like good minions, we did what we do best; we kidnapped the most evil people from the Five Kingdoms we could get our sharp bloody claws on and gleefully bashed the heads of anyone who got in our way. And now the real fun begins; we minions get to order around our future master (or masters, we aren't that picky) in proving himself or herself evil enough to fill in the very large boots of our former master. (He was a half-giant, I doubt anyone will fill them properly)
And I'm sure we'll be quite successful in our venture, because after all... Evil always finds a way! Speaking of which, our evil masters should be coming out of their poison-induced comas right about now...
After being kidnapped and taken to a large black tower, you are informed that you've been chosen to enter a competition to become the new evil Overlord of the Southern Kingdom. Are YOU evil enough to win their respect? It's statistically unlikely, given the large span of corruption in the Dwarf Kingdom, but we'll give you a sporting chance anyways!
Or you can play someone who isn't trying to be the new evil Overlord and is trying to free the other five kingdoms. But where's the fun in that?
Things are to be kept PG-13
Attempting to escape the Dark Tower will result in a hot pursuit by many angry and hostile evil creatures. Hope you brought a large enough shield!
No godmodding! I trust you all to know what this means.
Feel free to bring in a character from elsewhere. But make sure they're evil!
Wanna get the hang of playing an evil character if you've never been one? Let Gnarl teach you how to be a real evil scoundrel! In other words this is also a free "How to be evil" tutorial.
Have fun! Or else.
Feel free to import characters you have that you feel like brushing up on their evilness. After all, the minions can get in to a lot of places...
The name of your character, or their otherwise assumed, stolen or brutalized identity
The general age of your ball of evil
What kind of nasty creature does your malevolence inhabit?
A picture or a paragraph or two will suffice
Describe your malevolence for me, a paragraph or two will do
Whatever you were up to before you were snatched away from your home.
Whatcha got? Of course, your weapons are currently being stuck in the armory, but you'll get them back later.
Can you do it, and what can you do with it?
