Assets : Can emit clouds of ink when swimming away
Weaknesses : Zourits are slow and easily frightened.Their unlimited love leads them to make mistakes; Gnomes have a fishing method involving dangling one of their feet in the water. When the Zourit tries to grab it, they pull it back at once and knock the beast out. But if the Zourit manages to grab both feet, then...
By-products : Dried tentacles : can make excellent tearing whipsDried muscle fibres: can make excellent slingshots Beak: sharp edges for armoursInk: useful to write and to make blinding potionsFlesh: edible, provided you have good teeth and a lot of patience
Vulnerable to : Most weapons, except lightning spells (lightning in water... definitely not).

I'm becoming more and more excited about the crafting in DnL.
The way each mob has proper body parts that you can harvest and put to a logical use - looking good!
Any news on classes?

It's hard to live and easy to die..
Nemo sine vitio est
Well as to the GLOBITMOUTHS....
That was just an April fools joke.
Weapons:Beak and talons toward the front, claws on the hind feet.
Vulnerable to : Most weapons, provided you can hit it quickly enough.
RUNNERS Slowly and painfully, the caravan journeys through the desert land. Water supplies have shrunk down to almost nothing after a roaming Orc attack four Djays ago, and to make things worse, the old guide seems to have lost his way looking for a shortcut that seems to have existed only in his sun dried head and nowhere else.
JUGGERNAUTH by Elhavius "Hey George, dija harvest yer lil field near the woods yet?- Drn sure did, buddy, n ets a much better harvest en last year. I tells ya ets gotta be moren double!- Hey George, wrkin at field cbe good fer yer harvest, but it sure aint doin you no good. Thyears are a-showin on ya since the last time I seen ya, ol pal.- Whabout that white mustache ygot? Makes ya look like unc James.- What bout yer white hair!- Me, I got white hair? Yer kiddin me, man.- George put his hand to his hair, then to his comrades hair. It was frozen and brittle. As in the end of summer..." Both men turned slowly, then George pointed towards a white scar on the hill nearby."Oh shi...! George, go tthe village, quick! Tha thars a Juggernauth! Wes gotta get thhell outta here! There aint gonna be nothin left here inn hour!"JuggernauthsJuggernauths are among the creatures who gave Dragoon his worst nightmares when he decided to invade the kingdom of Aesir. These were the demon generals mounts, as well as contact and support troops in Daemonias army. It is said she used to mount the largest Juggernauth of all times, so large that even Diplood is rumored to have turned green with envy.When they leave, although not often, the glaciers and eternal snows where they live, they are easily noticed, since everything freezes around them.Juggernauths are a destructive kind: they raze, crush, wipe out and annihilate everything that stands in their way. They are only slightly smarter than animals, and have a very good thermal vision. The smallest source of heat is like a sting that shows them the next place to destroy.As with almost all of Daemonias children, Juggernauths are especially vulnerable to fire, that unsettles and confuses them. A Juggernauth surrounded by flames is helpless and can do nothing but destroy everything around him in order to make the flames stop. Magic fire is quite often deadly, since there is nothing you can stomp on in order to stop it.
I miss DAoC
Type, Characteristics : Amphibious creature linked to Hydra. Oviparous. The body is human-sized.. but the tail is of the same size than the body.
Habitat: Sentidras live in deep waters, but you can also find them near the shores. They have the ability to use wind streams like water streams.
History and Attitude: These creatures are often considered by fishermen like messengers of Hydra and respect them for that. There are countless legends on how the Sentidra answered the prayers preceding the fishing itself and came to them to lead them to the most populated fishing areas.
Other legends are less joyful and tell that entire fishermen villages have been destroyed by armies of furious Sentidras that ran after them until they reached their lands.
Even if the people living near the shores are always fearing for the kind of message the Sentidras bring them, they always treat them with respect.
Weapons: The Sentidra uses its ease while navigating air streams to rush towards an opponent to crush or stun him. It has a poisoned sting thats hidden above its mouth. The sting itself is as hard as a beak. The Sentidra will try to paralyse its opponent in order to cut him to pieces in peace.
Assets: Sentidras are often hiding underneath the sand, and their color makes them indetectable. They can therefore observe their surroundings and suddenly appear at the last second.
They can survive out of water and use air streams to move. Nevertheless, they like their natural environment better and rarely move away from it.
Weaknesses : The Sentidras avoid moving away from beaches, since this is where they are the strongest..
By-products : Their flesh is wonderfully tasty and loved by cooks, which creates tensions since the fishermen consider them sacred animals. Their paralysing poison is very efficient.
Vulnerable to : Since they are aquatic creatures, Sentidras are particularly sensitive to fire and electricity.
MINORTARS by Laellyra
A young Elf entered the village, panting and looking really exhausted as if he had been running for a long time. He collapsed at the base of the well to catch his breath. Worried and puzzled, Erellor, burgomaster of Orulgas, came by.
« Greetings to you! I dont think I know you. My name is Erellor, Im the burgomaster of this village. What are you fleeing so quickly ? You look like youve been chased by a Dragon! »
The young elf, feeling better already, stood up and shook Erellors hand.
« No, let me reassure you ! My name is Viryon, I am an anthropologist at Al-Drifas University. I travel through the realm, looking for old cult places dedicated to Calder in order to understand his dogma better. Did you know that one of his temples was inside the old inactive volcano south of your village ? This is quite interesting ! I managed to solve the mystery of its opening, and I was amazed. I hadnt seen one that well preserved for such a long time ! »
Erellor frowned. « No, I didnt know that, but for what I know about Calders cult, I am still a bit worried... and that doesnt explain why you were running. »
The elf seemed a bit embarassed. He carried on : « Well, I was visiting the temple and I stepped on what looked like a mecanism that opened a secret door. The temple was guarded by.. a guardian that made me leave.. faster than I wanted to. But dont worry, I managed to lose him! »
But as soon as he finished his sentence, a terrifying roar came from the nearby forest. What seemed to be a very heavy foot stomped the earth, and the noise it made was louder and louder. An imposing beast appeared on top of the hill, half-human, half-bull. It came right on them.
« Well.. I was hoping so... »
Type, Characteristics : Mythical creature mainly linked to Calder. Viviparous, but females are virtually non-existent. As tall as 2 or 3 men.
Habitat: It is very rare to find them in a natural state, they are often captives and given their attitude, it cant be bad.
History and Attitude: According to ancient legends, these creatures are the result of an unfortunate experiment by a group of Dark Elves that were enemies of Calder.
A long time ago, before Gothar offered religious independence, the Dark Elvish folk were hiding in dark caves, forced to exile by the other races because of their practising destructive magic. Faithful to their father, Calder, they were patiently waiting for the moment when they could exert their revenge on their former Elvish brothers.
As years went by, the youngest and the most impetuous couldnt just wait without acting. They decided to secretly create a cult devoted to Hel in order to ask the God for strength and destructive power in order to crush their enemies.
Calder was furious at his own people, they had betrayed him ! He cursed this devious cult and transformed the infidels in dark creatures that we now call Minortars. These young Dark Elves obtained, through their melting with bulls, the power and strength they wanted, but were condemned to serve their betrayed fathers cause until the end of times.
They possess the intelligence and the rage of the cursed young Dark Elves as well as the power of a wild bull. They are loyal guardians of Calders places of cult and they hunt down mercilessly anyone who would disrespect these places.
Weapons: Minortars use their horns to fight, but you also need to be wary of their deadly kicks. Their powerful clogs can easily crush a man.
Assets: Their size and power make them formidable adversaries. They are determined, and will not abandon a prey until they have destroyed it.
Weaknesses : Minortars think they are immortal and protected by Calder. Therefore, they will rush towards an opponent, whatever his power, without analysing the situation and noticing what surrounds them, with only in their mind the idea of killing their prey. This will give the preys companions a liberty to act.
By-products : Their horns and clogs are in great demand in weaponcraft, since they are believed to possess a divine power.
Vulnerable to : We know too little about these creatures to understand what their weaknesses are. So few fighters have survived an encounter that it is difficult to get an analysis of their fight and obtain a fighting strategy from it.
One rumour, that led to the death of numerous reckless people, says that Minortars are only vulnerable to their own horns... but dont try to saw one Minortars horns to kill him, it doesnt work !
BRANEY by Elhavius
Created solely for utilitarian and ergonomic reasons, the Braney is believed to have escaped from the secret caves of Calder who used him as a guard. To think, to watch and to eat in colossal quanties - these are the only functions that Calder provided him with - and the Braney cant actually do much else."
"Go on, Go on" cried the children in a chorus fashion. The old woman was taken aback - normally this story made children quake with horror so much that they never wanted to hear the next part of the story. Besides, no-one ever really bothered to tell the story anymore as no one wanted to listen to it. However, even more surprising than the childrens request was their vehemence and startling change of attitude. The old woman was puzzled and could feel a metal taste in her mouth.
Running her tongue over her dry lips, she continued with the story...
"The Braney does not possess the gift of speech as words are not necessary in order for him to be understood: his spirit is so powerful that he can directly transmit images or ideas into the listeners mind. It is also said that his powerful spirit allows him to give orders to another persons spirit or even to take control over a weaker mind. It is for this reason that the Braney is sometimes referred to as the "puppeteer".
Lastly, the legend says that the Braney sees everything, knows everything and hears everything. It is believed that he even saw into Gothars dreams whilst he was sleeping - causing him to flee when Calder tried to steal the secret of Gothars dreams from him.
But of course my children, this is only a legend and the legend ends right here".
Upon these words, the children rose in silence with a worried look on their faces. The old woman was happy as she was sure that she had frightened them enough and that they would leave her alone now. She needed to rest; the damp was making her arthritis literally unbearable.
She didnt see the child behind her who stabbed her in the kidneys, aiming the sharp edge of the knife towards her liver. Nor did she notice the other child perched on the table who gagged her with a stinking dishcloth. "The tea towel" thought the old woman stupidly.
The last thing that she perceived was an echo within her "The legend disappears with you old woman. And so do I".
The Braney is probably the most intelligent creature that Calder ever created: both his proudest creation and his greatest shame: void of all feelings, the only thing that matters is the project that it is striving towards. Unfortunately, no one is familiar with this project.
According to the legend, one thing is for sure: the Braney is a unique creature. Nevertheless, it is rumoured that he can be in several far-flung regions simultaneously.
He is described as a sort of brain with multiple sensorial appendixes. His multiple eyes mean that he can never be taken by surprise. However, these references are often both confused and contradictory: the survivors of encounters with the Braney have often either lost their minds or are unable to recollect their memories.
Nobody ever actually saw the original Braney. He produced many other examples of himself, all with one unique spirit. It would appear that he was inspired by the ant, or otherwise, that he simply compensated for the fact that it was impossible to create spirits as well as bodies. It remains that the Braney is a fierce enemy, capable of the greatest illusions, manipulations and other suggestions. It is advised never to cross his path.... Although no on really knows which path the Braney follows.
THE CERBER. by Laellyra
The Lutin clumsily stepped forward. He had lost the rest of his crew several Hours ago, and his only clues to go forward had been the blood tracks he had seen on the rocky corridor walls... Had his fellows left these marks on purpose? The light from his last torch was getting dimmer, flickering under the slightest gust of wind.
The tunnel eventually led him to a large underground room. The regular sound of the water dripping from the stalactites hinted that there a lake in its center. The light from the torch was reflecting on its surface and casting a faint glow around, enough to show a huge pile of bones to the side. A body was lying down nearby, wailing: Mund. The Half Troll was lying on his back, and as the Lutin walked past, he thought that this femur protruding out of the pile of bones would make a very convenient mace.
Mund was babbling incoherently. Lorchen realized that his friend truly deserved his name of Half Troll: the lower half of his body was missing, replaced by a pool of hot blood. So, he did the only thing a friend could to do in such circumstances: he put him out of his misery.
Salaz had heard something on his right side. He ran for several long minutes before he ended in a wide cave room with a lake in its center. On his left, someone had piled up many bones against the wall, up to the top. A spark, a glimpse, a torch falling on the floor: in an instant, he was together with his comrades. Munds lower body was missing, while Lorchen was still holding his weapon in his hands, fallen on his knees, his head missing, as hot blood was spurting out of his neck. He heard something growl behind him and looked. Lorchens half-eaten head hit him on the shoulder as he was reaching towards his weapon. There was a wolf indeed...
Note for the Council of Sages: the expedition sent to the Forbidden Caves did not come back. Now sending a support team.
Cerbers dont usually give a good impression when you see one. The incarnation of a wolf spirit, worshipped as a god for almost one milleni, it has gradually spread to some inhabited places in Ganareth.
It is very difficult to determine what it feeds on and what sort of hunting ground it likes. This creature often lives in inaccessible locations, endowed with ancient and powerful magic. It is not rare to see one, sometimes several of them, around immortal or apostle hideouts.
No courageous adventurer ever came back alive to tell about how they breed. Renowned scientists in the University of Al-Drifa believe, although it has never been proven, that cerbers breed by schizogenesis. If you cut a cerbers head in the right way, it can create another cerber. The other theory is that new cerbers can breed using a method similar to propagation by cuttings, although this idea implies unspeakable methods.
Nobody has ever been able to fight against a cerber and win. Its three heads act independently and with coordination, using their sharp teeth like daggers. Its size and the strength of its rear legs are additional and important assets.
It has often been heard that there is some kind of relationship between cerbers and kârh, Ellianors white wolf. However, this idea has never been confirmed or invalidated
THE CADAVISCUM. by Laellyra For today’s issue of DekadNews, we are taking you to a beautiful small area in Neutra’s kingdom, well-known for its huge forests and its serene inhabitants. We are going to interview someone who represents very well, one of the most dangerous local professions: wandering gravedigger.ARÖNAS Sirithdil is a major member of this profession. Unfortunately, the profession is starting to disappear since it is often overlooked by the younger generations. They think the work is hard and off-putting, which is sad, since gravediggers are very useful for everyone, and they are received as heartily as bards who brighten parties with their songs, stories and dances.Arönas is a strong man, with a one-eyed, scarred face, darkened by a long-edged hat. His favorite tools are picks, those with a pike-carved grip, and shovels, with the edge as sharp as a butcher’s knife. He fights the filth that proliferates in cemeteries; but not itinerant cadavers and skeletons controlled by some experimenting Necromancer. They are usually respectful of the rules and do not play cat and mouse with the authorities.On the contrary, Arönas is specialized in hunting plants, particularly the parasites that tend to develop themselves in the fertile cemeteries’ grounds. The Cadaviscum is the most famous and dangerous of them. Arönas’ fighting techniques are extremely demonstrative and command respect among his peers. He alone sanitized the vegetal cathedral of Broariàn, as well as its crypts, which were invaded by all kinds of vermin. We all sincerely wish good luck to Arönas who is now leaving to clean mass graves from the war, where several thousands of cadavers can be found. We hope the Cadaviscum doesn’t start growing there!
The Cadaviscum is the result of one of the most radical mutations observed during Neutra’s plants war. The Cadaviscum consists of a rhizome that can grow up to several tens of kilometers, many vegetal tentacles, and an emerged part. This part grows in favorable grounds and is made of a singular shank which bears flowers.The final size of the emerged part depends on the size of a cadaver under the surface, to which the Cadaviscum is attached to.The growth time until it reaches total maturity is variable, and seems to depend on the size of the cadaver underground.The Cadaviscum is a parasite that buries itself within the body until it’s completely infested. Then, it breaks away from the rhizome and fully emerges from the ground. The Cadaviscum’s goals are unknown; its only apparent motive is to kill, and then scatter its spores on the cadaver, thus creating a new starting point for the rhizome’s expansion.A fully developed Cadaviscum displays four huge colorful appendages, in order to attract hideous insects, yet to be identified.One element seems however recurring: the Cadaviscum seems to particularly want to kill creatures from the same race it originally was made from. That is probably an automatism left over from the end of the war.Some people say the leaders of some secret group are trying to cultivate Cadaviscum cuttings and to make them grow on Dragon cadavers. However, that sounds too much like a wild science-fiction scenario for us to pay much attention to it.

Related game based info posted all neatly on one thread, and You ^ accused it of burying/spamming... thats real super comming from a regular-multiposter.
Now we aren't allowed to post anything unless it goes by the fan-police first?

Thats what he always does. He has been spamming his baby pet threads for years. He continmously bumped his screenshot thread everyfew days until the moderators here got tired of his spam and stickied it. He has done the same thing to this thread. Notice besides spamming his threads he never posts anything of substance. Sometimes he calls people names that have the nerve to question Farlan's competence or honesty. Sometimes he gets creative and posts blanket endorsements of Farlan or just copies an pastes their lies. But he never will post a thoughtful post that contains any ideas pr a well reasoned argument as to why DnL is not as terrible as people say or as good as he claims. Most likely because it is virtually impossible to make an argument in support of DnL. Its just much easier for him to just copy and paste their lies.
But your right his trolling speciality is to bump his copy and paste threads to move legitmate discussion of DnL lower down the menu board. The last thing Farlan or Blacksac wants is discussion of DnL as any discussion will only ploint out its obvious flaws and failrues. Hence the reason Blacksac and other fanboys just limit their posts to flames and copying and pasting Farlans lies rather ever attempting to join the discussion.
Remember Farlan has said they hired two fanboys as devs. Most likely well below minimum wage. Blacksac is almost certainly one of those two. Who is the other? IKshadow maybe? Maybe Pandera form the official site? Although IKshadow did make an excellent fansite which shows when the server is up. It is essential for anyone who plays DnL.

It's an info thread for the game this forum is about, whats so surprizing about that?
I post it, you take it or leave it... simple. I've kept everything relating to a subject on one thread so people can use it as a reference if they so choose... makes sense to me... nice and neat... I've never been warned about trolling, and I can't see why I would.
I rarely discuss anything since my mind is made up (as I can see most of you have as well), and I proberbly know more about this game than most, so I'm not (rarely) looking for any help.
If I did get into discussions here, can you honestly see me being welcome amonst such a hostile crowd? I would be flooded with accusation I have no time or interest in defending... so I mostly don't
Note1: Don't spread BS lies/rumors about me and IKShadow being payed by Farlan.. you do that quite a lot, and I find it deceitful
Note2: If your just trying to provoke me, that says a lot more about you
I am just trying to explain your spam posts. There must be a reason you have continuously bumped this thread, your screenshot thread and your other pet threads every few days for the last few years. It only makes sense that you are one of the two fanboys being paid by Farlan. Who else other than you has done more to deceive and trick the gullible into thinking that DnL has something to offer game players. If your not one of the fanboys being paid by Farlan then who is? There are only a handful of fanboys left (roughly about 10-15 on the official forums) and most of them have recent join dates. Its not hard to guess just by using the process of elimination that you are one of two fanboys that has been on Farlan's payroll the last few years.
You have done your best here to bury threads discussing DnL and pointing out its many flaws while elevating your copy and paste threads full of Farlans lies. Either you are being paid by Farlan or you are not. Whatever the answer is, you serve the same purpose for them in trying to dupe and trick people into thinking DnL is something that it isn't.
I have yet to see you make one legitimate post on this board. Your posts here are like most of the fanboy troll posts. Your posts are either flames against anyone that discusses the faults of the game, copy and paste of Farlan's lies and/or a shameless bumping of your pet threads. I have yet to see you attempt to join the discussion. Rather you only start threads calling people names and trolls.
You can deny that Farlan is paying you. One can either believe you or assume that your honesty is no better than Farlan's. But what does it matter as you are still Farlan's lackey regardless of whether or not you get paid. You do everything in your power to aid Farlan in fraudently stealing money from gullible consumers.
Rather than spending your time copying and pasting, calling people names, and bumping and burying threads please try and make a legitimate honest well reasoned argument as to the virtues of DnL and I and I am sure many others will applaud your efforts.
OMG... You are just making stuff up!... your trying to provoke... wrong person, I don't play those games
