I'm sure most of you have followed Robert(Sage) over on White Elephants. He's gone now, off to do his duty against a callous ethereal foe. I chalk it up as a win for us overall, the first blog that was ended without a death apparent. He's still out there, laughing at constructs. I...Sorry if my typing is a bit off today, I'm perturbed by his departure.
Robert had talked about finding new Sages since the first three had...well disappeared in one form or another.
then I get a comment on my last blog saying
I check the name 'greenlight'....and it's Sage.
god, look, I know I've said that I've always wanted a chance to be someone, to leave something behind...to be remembered, but if I read this right; that he's picking me as a rep of some sort. I dunno if I'm that sort of guy...
Still, I said I was in this thing, and I guess I still am. But I haven't seen the Slender Man. I can only speculate on him until he shows himself.
I guess I really do need to see if that bum is still out there by the overpass, maybe I can learn something useful, or buy him a fire extinguisher...
Amelia got a notice as well, but who is 1/3? Who is it? Maybe we need to talk before anyone starts claiming stuff about 'new sages'. I wouldn't dare to be so arrogant and self-absorbed to think I know anything more than Robert, Jay or Shaun.
Time to give this some extra thought.
edit: It's Maduin. Thanks, Omega.
edit 2: Maduin and I have been in contact, if only a hair. He advises me to find the 'Rock' . Having searched WE, I come across this
Sad deal, this "Hero" business. And one would have to have a mind and soul as strong as a rock.
Do you intend to nurture such an individual?
Robert Sage said... Zeke(Mystic) had his shot, a Warrior who's already had a turn at the Warrior and isn't -corrupted- becomes a Mystic. That's not to say Zeke can't try again.
Maduin...you(Seer) are very very clever and figured out the Grand Theory. Almost. You see, Heroes can't be created or forged. That never ends well. I(Sage) have other plans.
Alright, I have a task before me now, A hero cannot be created or forged, and must have strength of absolute conviction. So, a hero simply...must be. How he arises is either pointless or inconsequential.
I think the only way I'm going to really get any answers on what to do, or how to do so is to encounter him myself.
