Re: RPG:Champions of Geridarr
Link's ninjas had been easy enough to defeat, but he hadn't been fast enough to attack the "Shadow" person. By the time he registered what was going on, the fight had ended. Obviously, this group of adventurers that he was a part of were more than capable of handling themselves in battle. This was good, as he was getting tired of having to protect people who didn't know how to handle themselves. he liked them and all, but they tended to place themselves in danger far too often. these people, though, were different, and for that, Link was thankful.

A shadow stretched across the earth, like a stain destroying everything in its path. Link tried to draw his sword and shield to fight it, only to find that they were gone; he was defenseless.
As suddenly as the dark advance began, it halted, and a figure arose from the shadows. it was...him. A Dark Link, a mirror image of him. His tunic and chainmail were coloured black, and his skin the colour of charcoal. His eyes flared an evil red, and his mouth was twisted in a sadistic grin.
"Hail, Hero. I do so hope you find your stay here... eventful. For you have arrived in the land of your death; you will not be leaving Geridarr alive, boy."
Link was used to threats; usually they came from Ganondorf and were overcome. This one however, being much simpler and direct, and different stirred a feeling of primal fear within him. As the Dark Link laughed maniacally, Link awoke, screaming...
