View Full Version : The Return of the Shaman

Some of you may remember when the Matis Ambassador last visited Zora city.......

Homins who lined the square in Qai Lo to greet and in some cases insult the Matis Ambassador, were taken aback by the mysterious appearance of a strange Zorai shaman. This shaman raged at the Ambassador and condemned the talks shortly to take place in Zora.



Escorted by the requested entourage, the ambassador arrived safely at Zora Castle, but when he commenced speaking, chaos erupted, and he was taken hostage by a band of dissident terrorists.

They were however no match for the determined might of the assembled Zorai and Fyros who mounted several expeditions into dangerous, hostile terrain to rescue him from his unlawful prison. All seemed well, but for the reappearance of the strangely ragged shaman as the Ambassador made his speech of thanks. The Shaman threatened all sorts of terrible things none of which have yet come to pass, and seemed to vanish from the soil of Atys.

Now however homins of all races have reported sightings of the strange, mumbling figure dressed in tatters and mumbling vague threats and curses. Is this the return of the dreaded Oba?

Something really cool's about to happen methinks. We were ingame tonight when two of the guides began to "whisper" to each other in region chat about rumours circulating in the outlying villages about the Shamen having been spotted. They arranged to meet up in secret at a certain location so they could discuss what they had heard, so naturally, we all had to go and listen in (!). There were lots of cryptic comments about not wanting to alarm the homins and deciding who they should report their news to, but when we asked what was happening they told us we had to be on our guard at all times over the coming days. Eeeek, lol.

Keep up the good work guys, this got us all talking and was really good fun. Hope I get the chance to use my shiny new pike ;)

Over in the Matis Island the same occured, only we found the Shaman! Well...we found someone who had just started a char called Shaman and had no idea what was going on. I assume he got quite worried when our small team surrounded him on the outskirts of a town and began to interrogate him.

Anyways, we'll try to keep our eyes open, can't be too hard to spot a Zorai in Matis noobland, after all they are slightly slimmer than us... :P

Yes, it was me.
My in-game name is Shaman,
and I've been playing 1st open Beta with this name so yesterday evening I just created my 1st char as Shaman too. And in a few minutes later found a lot of brave warriors looking for a kind of Misterious Shaman in Matis noobland.. Little bit strange to see high-level chars in noobland, but no things to warry about. And theirs explanations are highly appreciated ;-)
Finally I understood, that I should read the topic on in-game events before start playing, but what U R normally do just after registration? Yes, creating your char to play.

Well while in Tryker a guide by the name of Flump came to FairHaven out of dire need to speak with Guide Theai. That is was of all importance, that he find her. Thus they met at the main gate to FairHaven, ther was much hushed whispering, but my mum raised me to be quite the listener.. :-) anyways, there was speak of OBA the shaman being found in the out lieing villages, and Flump and Theai were discussing if we should be warned.

Worried and grave expressions began to show on Theai's otherwise pristine face, this could only mean this OBA shaman guy was of grave concern and that is sightings again would bode ill will for us all.

At this time many of us had begin gatthering around, and with great concern for his brethen Flump told us that OBA had been sighted, rumors stating he was cursing homin's with strange mummblings... that we must be on the look out and on guard against the unknown. No attacks had been reported as of yet, and if we ever run accross this OBA then we are best advised to take heed of his words.

At this point memories of my mums cookies began to flitter in and how I would have to be sneaky in the shadows to pilfer a few for me young and growing tummy....

... Flump continued seemingly in great haste now, warning of a grave road a head of us while this OBA guy was about...

Well you can count me in, I've polished my wand and sharpened my blades.. most importantly my eyes and ears are toned for any thing that may happen.

This OBA guy has ill will against any of us, I'll have to show him what a few well placed shin kicks, like my ole mum, bless her soul, would always be telling me, ya gotta stand up and do what ya gotta do :)

We must not stand to be under his dark shadow!

It was a blustery matis afternoon, homins going about their daily routines......

Ragus howls, all but an echo as parties of homins removed them from town borders.......but.........the silence was to be broken....

The Shaman Oba appeared in the refugee islands of Matia in an attempt to dispel the courage of all homins in his wake...........

But his foolish bantering and empty threats were no match for the cunning and skill of the Matis People, one young and brave Homin located this fiend and like the wind of time, he was gone............

Is this the last of Oba............I think not...........

Had I had been there I would have run him through, with my pike of pain! *looks suddenly at a shadow, and screams 'Whats that!?' - runs off into the bushes to hide*

We were on the Matis refugee island yesterday with our new characters when a couple of the Guides began a dialogue about The Tryker Ambassador having been kidnapped by Shaman Oba. We were told that her memory had been altered and she'd been hidden somewhere in Atys (eeeek!). I've got a feeling we are all going to be trying to track her down either at the weekend or next week. (Please GM's give us plenty of warning about when this is gonna kick off so I can make sure our Guild is there too :) ).

By a strange coincidence we were in Pyr a couple of days before with our old characters and we actually SAW Oba! He literally appeared in front of us, yelled abuse, scared us all witless then vanished. We didn't know whether to laugh or cry! In all seriousness it was brilliant role-play fun. (Crying myself to sleep that night wasn't fantasy tho ;) )

Honestly guys, this is great stuff. We're really loving it - keep up the good work. It is this kind of fun which makes me love Ryzom :)

Homins, I come here to warn you all. News has reached me of Oba, news that we would be foolish to ignore. Piecing together his movements across Matis and Tryker lands I fear he plans to reach Fyros this very evening. I advise vigilance. May Jena be with you all.

HOMINS, HEED MY WORDS!

Oba and his helper, Wormbreath, have just visited Fairhaven. They claim to be torturing the Tryker Ambassador, but said they would give a clue to the ambassadors whereabouts in 2 days time.

I will type up the full course of events tomorrow, or sooner if I have time. Be on your guard, homins.

(Either the comedy spelling is clues, or Oba's schooling left a little to be desired!)

For those who have not seen them, Wormbreath is a fat, bald Fyros, while Oba is a Zorai.

Wormbreath: My master Shaman Oba in his supremely, infinately, beautiful wickedness has struck again!
Oba: WORM, HAVE YOU DROPPED ONE, I SMELL FISH.
Wormbreath: Mwahahahahaaah dropped two master.
Oba: TRYKER WORRIORS, IF THERE ARE ANY. COME TO FAIRHAVEN TO HEAR ME. AND THEN FEAR ME.
Wormbreath: I come to sow confusion and uncertainlty here in fAIRHAVEN, where you people now look twice at every shadow. PUNY HOMINS, HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAH.
Oba: WORM PULL YOUR TROUSERS UP, YOU LOOK SLOPY. EVIL, BUT SLOPY.
Wormbreath: ARRRRRRR, BAD BUTT, SORRY MASTER.
Oba: PUNY TRYKERS, RUNNING SCARED.
Wormbreath: Nar-har-har puny homins of Atys, my master Shaman Oba will make Yubo food of your puny little bodies. HEAR THE WORDS OF MASTER OBA! YOU ARE NOT FIT TO CLEAN HIS BOOTS.
[He approaches me]
Oba: WORM, THIS ONE IS SO UGLY. HE GIVES YOU A RUN FOR YOUR DAPPERS.
Wormbreath: HAR-HAR-HAR. Who can solve this dreadfully delicious delectable cruel mystery and find the prisoner, Quintin, the Tryker Ambassador?

Oba: THE TRYKERS NOT GOT MUCH LIFE LEFT IN HIM, HAS HE WORM.
Wormbreath: They are puny midgets master.
Oba: I THINK THE TRYKER HAS ABOUT THREE DAYS LIFE LEFT IN HIM.
Wormbreath: If that much master.
Wormbreath: My master proclaims this to you pathetic excuses for Homins! "Homins of Atis, you are corrupted by your contact with other racers and have become both slow and stupid. I have set you a task to prove this that you will never solve. The ambassador is captured by my cunning and hidden in a most distant spot.In due course I will let you have a clue to his wherabouts which I am certain will be beyond your puny abilities to solve."
Oba: IN TWO DAYS TIME I WILL REVIEL THE FIRST CLUES. BUT TIME IS RUNNING OUT FOR THE TRYKER.

[I face him off]
Obi: ALGENON, YOUR CARD IS MARKED AND YOUR DEATH, WHEN IT COMES WILL BE SLOW.
Obi: WAIT ON MY WORDS AND FEAR ME. I AM HE YOUR DOOM SHALL BE.

[Much posturing followed, but of the Tryker Ambassador the only other thing he said was...]

Algenon: So you admit the ambassador has the strength to sustain your torture.
Obi: WITH MY POWERS I CAN KEEP HIM JUST ALIVE, ON THE EDGE OF DEATH.
Algenon: So you would like to think. We will see.
Obi: Haha. PUNY.
Algenon: I am short. You are puny. :)
Obi: AS YOU SAID, WE SHALL SEE.

[with that, Obi disapeared.]

Keep your eyes peeled Homins.

The Shaman Oba and his evil assistant WormBreath were seen last night, these pictures came into our hands, delivered by a dieing Guild member; we suggest that you avoid this dangerous dastardly pair. Approach them at your own peril!!

Oba says : doxa come to me
Wormbreath says : Let her try !!!!!
Phaedrea shout : Lady Doxa, do you challenge Lord Oba to a duel? I can promise that all Homins here present will heal you if you should agree!

The pathetic Wormbreath and the brave Homins who rallied to defend the small village of Crystabell just now. About seven of us gathered and exchanged insults with Wormbreath, who after taunting us for 10 minutes or so, vanished into thin air.

Indeed. Wormbreath or so they call him was there, making fun of the Trykers and running around, disappearing and appearing. Then as mentioned, fled.

After Oba, spoiled the Tryker relay race all was quiet for a while....

Quietly completing a small order for Hvy Vest and Medium Pants for the local Crystabell Overseer, I wondered out into the day light to harvest some excellent mats on the beach. Lorger was selling his wares around the village welcomer, when in the distance a shout was heard.

It was the maggot Wormbreath, the ugly side kick of Oba.

After a few exchanged taunts .. he finally appeared!

He must have been drinking too much Yubo Ale as he was running around looking for the Crystabell public loos. At one point I heard the sound of him being sick of the pier.

Wormbreath says : MUHAHAHAHAHA

Then finding the toilet, he rushed in the door and disappeared.

When he finally reappear a group of Tryker had formed, ready to greet him.

Much taunting, Benny Hill style chases (Reference for the old ones) and one duel later, Wormbreath disappeared for the last time........

There was much rejoycing.... but we learned nothing about the location of our ambassador.

Not the Wormbreath has enough brain cells to give us any useful information, it my be wise for us to question him the next time he is sighted.

Wormbreath you and you Master, fear us. We are not afraid of you.

We are Tryker, courageous and proud.

(except maybe Lilith who hid in a palmtree)

Next time, stay off the Ale and stand still..... Where is our ambassador?

(Thanks for the midnight event, it was nice to have it at a non-peak time)

After Wormbreath has disappeared in Crystabell, the Homins who gathered earlier have dispersed, all going back to their tasks, duties or relaxations. I have myself headed to Fairhaven, to visit the Overseers, where Wormbreath has appeared again.

There I was, trying peacefully to craft some wares, when the ugly fat one pops out of nowhere and starts running around in circles, taunting me. I got really scared, as my Meki was with me, and I did not want him damaged or scared off. I quickly therefore ran to stable my packer, with Wormbreath chasing me.

Having put my Meki in safety, I headed back to the raw mat merchants, where Wormbreath appeared again, threatening to eat my Mektoub. He was throwing insults at my poor animal, can you beleive it?

Some homins gathered rather quickly, and Lady Phaedrea, our estimeed Guide and visitor from the Matis lands appeared to help her friends. Having exchanged insults with Wormbreath, the pathetic fool has finally fled.

We have only found out afterwards that whilst Wormbreath was running around taunting us in Crystabell and Fairhaven, in fact his master, Oba has appeared in Windermeer, then shortly after that disappeared again.

Could this mean that the sporadic appearances by Wormbreath are nothing more than attempts at distracting us? By throwing insults and gathering the homins around him, Wormbreath is guaranteeing safe and unnoticed movement for Oba in other places!

My fellow homins, watch out! If Wormbreath appears, look for Oba too... but elsewhere.

Well incidently the tryker emassador was found the day when many of us lost spawns, a friend of mine casually entered nexus and he was couple of meters from the slope, he was called quintin and the text he spoke was jumbled or damaged but he did give 20k. Rather sure some americans on the same day also found quintin, but he appears to be removed now.

Reports of the ambassador's freedom are, as ever grossly exaggerated. Grats to anyone who sighted him on his abortive break for liberty, however.
