Arda's time has drawn to an end, as all good things must. Remember it with fondness, and may it rest in peace.

Goodbye, everyone, I loved you all and Arda very dearly.

Former members may still log in and view all the old posts (now showing all posts, not just in-character and profiles), but the board is unavailable to new registrants and officially read-only. The CBox is still functional and many people still stop by to say hello.

This site's host, InvisionFree (zIFBoards), is transferring all the boards they host to their updated platform known as ZetaBoards as of an announcement on 7/17/2017. Arda has been converted as of January 2018. You can expect to see some visual changes when you visit, but all data (posts, accounts, forums, etc) remains intact.

Additionally, Photobucket stopped allowing hotlinking from its free accounts in 2017 so many images are currently "missing."
All files are still safely stored and awaiting transfer to a better hosting solution. You can read here for more info.

Per an additional announcement on 5/7/18, this board is being converted a second time, this time to TapaTalk from ZetaBoards. Details pending further information.

Temple of Darkness

Regular Forum Shrine of Shadows
The entrance to the Shrine of Shadows is lit on either side by two torches that burn with black fire. It is said that those who stare into the black fires can see reflections of the dark half of their very soul. The torches are shaped like claws, the tip of each clawing at an holding the black fire that burns eternally. The necks are twisted and gnarled, constructed from obsidian and supported with a blackened steel base. The doorway is a double-door, made from steel that has been turned black by the heavy taint of evil radiating from within the Shrine. A pentagram adorns the doorway, cut perfectly in half by the separation of the double-doors. It is similar to the one worn around Xoco’s neck, and is forged out of silver. A black dragon’s head is mounted above the doorway, and a pair of gnarled dragon’s wings border the doorframe.

Within, the walls are lined with smaller torches that also burn with black fire. These fires give off an icy chill rather than heat, and are composed from the very essence of shadow. They seem to cast a faint, nearly imperceptible glow, just enough to sustain the visual needs of most mortals. It is a perfectly circular room, and a pentagram identical to the one on the door adorns the ceiling. A small obsidian altar is situated in the very center, covered by a black cloth. Two black-burning candles are situated on either side of the altar. A small pile of incense lies at the base of the altar. One must take a candle from the altar and light the incense in order to summon Xoco.

It is told that few are able to safely enter the Shrine, but those of an evil alignment may find help from Xoco, if he chooses to aid them. Entrance is difficult for those of a good alignment, and the glyphs on the pentagrams are drawn such that no one of a good or lawful alignment can enter the Shrine without an invitation. Any of good alignment who enter without invitation will be continually sapped of strength and afflicted by unholy magic until they depart.

Regular Forum Damned Chamber
The chamber isn't a place you want to be, because it is the local prison. Raku has left a army of demons in charge of it and entering means that you're either evil or in the prison. Think of the chamber as hell, and it is in the lowest part of Raku's temple.

Regular Forum The Crimson Sanctuary
The Sanctuary is located underneath the actual temple. The walls are stained red from the blood of fallen warriors. Skeletons hang from the walls and some are dipped into the pool of blood that surrounds the outer edge of the whole room. In the middle of the room is a huge pit that is used for sacrifices. The pit has bones the are razor sharp located around the edge so that nothing gets out or they die trying.
