    Love Is in the Games Contest

    Love... That wretched emotion that tears at the soul and leaves people as bitter, hollow shells of what they once were... *ahem* I mean... Love! Isn't it great? In fact, it's so great that we're going to celebrate all things amorous with a brand new cross-game contest!

    Each of our games has a wealth of characters -- male and female, human and alien, golem and robot, living and dead. Your task, if you wish to take part in this contest, is to pick two of them (from the same game) and write an explanation (in 250 words or less) about why they'd be a good couple to spend Valentine's Day together.

    This contest will be posted on each web game's forum (Dawn, Suns, and Clash), and all entries should be posted on this thread or its counterpart on another forum. Please note that you may only enter once on each thread, but for this contest you're welcome to enter on as many of those threads as you wish. That means you could enter once on the Dawn forum and again on the Suns forum, for example. In each entry the characters you pick must belong to the game in question, however. So if you post on the Clash forum, you can't talk about what a great couple Caligula and Flashheart would be.

    It's up to you how you pair the characters. Two men, two women, a man and a woman, a woman and a robot, a man and a demoness... Any combinations are permissible.

    Please note that our usual forum rules apply. Entries which would best be sent to the editors of adult magazines are most certainly not appropriate.

    The threads will stay open until 11.59pm GMT on Friday, February 21st. That gives you all ten days to come up with your combos. At that point we'll seal the threads and pick five winners from each forum -- based on how persuasive, amusing, or thought-provoking their explanations were. Those people will each receive 60 Planet Coins or 100 Golden Suns or 100 Dragon Coins.

    "...the game in general seems to have a wanton disregard for human life."

    I got confused by the rules of the event, the history we create need to be a love history between the 2 characters or it can be something that happened during valentine's day?

    Also, you said "about why they'd be a good couple to spend Valentine's Day together." it means the 2 of them together, or they together with the player?

    Not a history. Basically you're just explaining why they'd make a good couple.

    Also, you said "about why they'd be a good couple to spend Valentine's Day together." it means the 2 of them together, or they together with the player?
    The two characters. No threesomes.

    I had 47 pages done and a small claymation mini series already started. Guess it's back to the drawing board.

    Calla and Lenzy

    It was dark and raining hard as she waited under the bough. "Calla!" The girl heard her name, looking around she saw it was her friend, Lenzy. He hurried to see her, but as soon as he got there she acted as if she hadn't heard his voice, nor knew him at all. "We need to talk." He said trying to catch his breath. "I thought I told you to leave me alone!" The girl shouted as she turned her back at him. "I can't do that!" Lenzy answered. Calla started walking away; she was wet by the time she came out from under the tree.

    "Look, I know that I made the wrong choice in loving you, but please, can’t we just have what we had before?" Lenzy continued. Calla stopped walking, "Look!" she turned around and faced him, "I just want you to leave me alone! I'm sick and tired of this game. You can't love a girl like me." She yelled, tears came falling from her eyes. Lenzy approached her, wrapped his arms around her, "I just love you! Stay with me." He was crying. "LET GO!" Calla pushed him, slapped him. "Can't you understand me? I don't like the way you treat me anymore, I'm not special. You just can't love me like someone else? I hate you!" Her voice was beginning to break, she cried hard as she turned her back at Lenzy and ran away.

    Lenzy wanted to go after her but all he could do was watch.

    Clythasia and Netheuren didn't seem like the likeliest of couples, but after storming hundreds of castles together (and thousands of clicks), it came to happen. They continued to put their lives in each others hands, from that was born a trust which lead to love. Being commanders they could not show their affection outright, but some nights after intensive planning sessions, they could be seen huddled around a campfire enjoying the night together.
    Pay no attention to the signature behind the curtain.

    Still a better love story than Twilight

    Love in the Swamp
    By Snulgar the Screamer

    Once upon a time
    'twas a love so true
    Between Bernard Bronzefist,
    And a barrel of breeeeeeew *thwack* I mean, Chieftain Githa, I do!

    He was down in the swamps,
    Drinking his way through
    When his inebriated gaze
    Fell upon a leather shoe

    Bernard raised his head
    And before him stood
    The most gorgeous of women
    Meet her Bernard thought he should

    Though she hit him with sticks
    He walked up to her the same
    Grabbed her 'round the waist and said
    "Babe... let's go hunt some game!"

    Sluriasma's head rolled
    And with it Githa felt
    As the corpses of bystanders
    So did her own heart melt

    The two had a great time
    All through Valentine's day
    Hacking and thrusting their way
    Through their foes' arterial spray

    And the story ends here
    From this decrepit old bard
    And if the madam be willing
    I won't be roasting in lard

    Bosses are fine. Not players though.

    Panoptica, the eyes of the Gods, was frustrated. Despite her powers, she couldn't see past the illusion put up by her ally, Catalina. It was her job to see and know everything about everyone, to make sure they weren't doing anything blasphemous, and with the illusion, Catalina could be doing just about any sort of immoral thing without being seen. Because of this, Panoptica formulated a plan. Over the last few weeks, she had befriended Catalina, got close, and gained her trust. Now, with them both coming back from missions, it was time to convince her to remove the illusion.

    Panoptica was walking towards Catalina, when she heard her crying. Panoptica hid, and listened to what Catalina was saying. She listened for what felt like hours, and heard stuff that Catalina hadn't had the courage to tell anyone. When Catalina was done, Panoptica walked over and sat by her. Panoptica began to talk to Catalina about what she had just overheard, and at first, Catalina was mortified over the fact, but then she slowly began to feel comfortable and relaxed. After talking for a while, they sat quietly.

    Eventually, Panoptica asked if Catalina could drop the illusion so she could see what she looked like. At first, Catalina was afraid, but gathered the courage to show her friend what she actually looked like. Upon seeing Catalina's true form, Panoptica smiled, and remarked about how this would be a fun Valentine's Day, which caused Catalina to just smile and blush.

    Marcus and kyrose. Due to both of their desire for justice, they would be a great couple and can surely help each other in any combat situation or pursuit of justice. I can see them on a valentines date and then seeing someone steal a womans gold and run off, then both of them smirk at each other and run to catch the robber. Finally able to enjoy their meal they smile and laugh about the idiot who thought he could get away from them.

    ps: havent read any of the lore in this game, so hopefully they arent already a couple lol

    Well, Probably not gonna win, but i might have a good Idea:

    Mathias the Masterer and Rissa D'Tang could be a Lovely Couple. Since Mathias is cursed until he masters all Skills and Arts of Man, and Rissa is a Smart and Sneaky "Loudmouth", they would have much to learn from each Other. Mathias could learn the Sneaky Arts from Rissa, and She could Learn to be a Better Person seeing the Mathias' Struggle to end his Punishment. And Besides, What better way for that to happen, than as a Romantic Couple?

    That is the Reason I think they could Spend the Valentine's Day Together. (:

    (PS: Mathias Lore is pretty Clear, on his Story and Everything. But i Had some Problem to learn about Rissa. There might be better places to look for, But i don't have any Clues. So i read the General's Lore and Panoptica's Third Eye's Lore to Base this "Tale".)
    "Undoubtedly, this is the prime time for our craft. Emotions celebrate the need of our art, and Science clash wars and battles agains our kin." Spoke the White Mage, brandishing his Staff and shaking his White hairs with small head moves.

    Mathias and Claudia sittin' in a tree,
    P - E - R - F - E - C - T
    First come skills, then comes battle
    Check Mathias' mastery of that leather bound paddle!

    They would be the most insufferably perfect, but cold & distant, couple. Perfect for each other in every way. They would spend an eternity learning and mastering every skill and martial art. But would they ever be happy?

    Here's my submission. I hope you guys enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.



    Galatea had learned of love too late. Tormented by the pain of losing her adoring sculptor, she sought to numb her heartache in the tide of battle, yet even the roars of the mightiest dragon could not drown out the echoes of her loneliness. She restlessly wandered the camp on a softly raining night, when Francis first saw her. He could hardly believe his soulless eyes, yet he could sense her feelings. “Could there really be another forsaken creation walking this land?”

    Out of the corner of her eye, Galatea noticed Francis shuffling towards her. As if shocked into her natural state, she froze still. This did not deter Francis, who clumsily wrapped his arms around her rigid figure. For the first time, Galatea’s cheeks blushed a rosy hue, as if bright, sparkling rubies had replaced her pale, marble features.

    Francis leaned in towards Galatea, and in a soft, hopeful, longing tone whispered “We were made for one another.” At first, Galatea didn’t know how to respond, but she allowed her newly-learned emotions to drive her. She returned Francis’ embrace, raised to give Francis a soft kiss, and rested her head against his patchwork chest. Almost at once, her feelings of grief and longing were washed away with the rain, which began to pour down as if the Heavens themselves opened with approval. Francis’ heart pounded faster than it ever had, and he raised his head to the sky and shouted amidst the thunderous landscape, “I’ve never felt so ALIIIIIIVE!”

    Ularnis Etricia

    Being half Elf Etricia was not allowed to marry Ularnis, the whole family of the Ularnis condemned for not being an Elf of purebred and therefore all were against. Ularnis realized that if he really wanted to be happy next to the Etricia would have to abandon their customs, his people and his family. More Ularnis was an important General for his people and knew I could put all these dangers by this love. Etricia seeing all the suffering of Ularnis solves abandoned for so it does not disturb the more your love. Then the Lord of the Elfs Etricia appears and tells her that if she really loves is Ularnis she should pass 10 tests of life and death. Etricia accepts the challenge and meets all the tests with courage and confidence and finally manages to pass all. Elf all people just accepting and respecting Etricia and so the two live happily together.

    There was no rule against angels fraternizing with mortals, and as long as she avoided someone favored by the gods like imprudent Amata she could do as she pleased. So she placed an anonymous personal ad in the West Krunan Press: “W4M: Punctilious party seeking same for Rassys’ Day repast.” She received only one response through the paper’s anonymous dating service, but wishing for once to be surprised did not use her abilities to determine who her companion would be. She selected a respectable Dracoshire inn and sent a response to the paper to be relayed back to her date.

    On the evening of Rassys’ Day, Panoptica entered the inn and was escorted to the table she had reserved. She was somewhat disappointed when she approached and saw a bald man in green armor seated at her table. Still, hoping to make the best of it, she greeted the gentleman and engaged in what proved to be stilted small talk. Things were not going well. When she ordered her meal, she noted that the man pulled out a book and made a note. Unable to resist, she used her abilities to read what he wrote. “Arrived six minutes late, ordered market price meal. Two demerits.” Panoptica felt the righteous fury growing inside her, and tried her best to quell the flames. However, both her date and the unfortunate owner of the inn would regret the fact that Vork asked Panoptica to split the check at the end of the meal.
