  • Non sequitors out the wazoo, including: Silence gossips (in common), '*in sign* remember sin is the most important meal of the day'.
  • Signature emotes, including: Silence flexes his fingers in a way that makes you nervous, you suddenly have an urge to count your bags.

  • Silence posted ideas on a variety of topics, including supporting the creation of piercings, tattoos, and thief language skills and the ability to ID at level 30. He also proposed a 'fighting arena' in which single characters could enter and fight pre-set mobs for exp and prizes, as well as a way for mortals to tell what the online time of Immortals was. Others included a ranger ability to 'find water,' a thief ability to 'find doors,' and a mage ability to 'enchant armor.' Yet more ideas were posted on the ability to quit in one's god temple, being able to buy restrings from shoppies, changes to Hide, a thief ability called 'secret messages' (he didn't know about cant just yet), "Russian Roulette Food", items that made you gain additional exp when killing mobs, channels for allies, posting notes to specific classes, Mute for warriors,exp for successful steal attempts, necrophagia, making corpses last longer, a way to post notes to followings other than your own, changes to spells for Neutral clerics, a Hop social, 'planting' items invisibly on victims, a 'steal' ranking, Who Ally and Who Enemy, ... the list was endless. (It was his habit to post ideas while he was sleeping to regen while exp'ing.)
  • One of Silence's ideas (Dated October 28, 2004) MIGHT have been the inspiration for the Games of Chance / gambling code! [ 13] Silence: gambling / Thu Oct 28 23:59:23 2004 / To: all / Feedback by Tynian, Mon Dec 27 04 17:42:36: read. / I think it would be neat if there were areas where we could play NPC's and PC's in betting games from simple things like 50 gold black jack to 500 gold poker hands even more complex things like betting on who might win an arena fight or who will win the current mobhunt. :) Silence, Dark inventory relocationist

Player Provided Information:

A half-elven family, traveled north late one night on the great western road. Who where they? Why were they traveling? No one knows. The bodies were found, slaughtered, and all were dead save a small child who had somehow survived having his neck slashed and was left for dead.

The child was taken to the greatest healers in the land and made well, though the injury so severe a wicked scar was left upon his neck. But his name, his family, his history remained a mystery. None knew him. None knew the family. Those caring for him quickly learned that his injuries were not fully healed, could not be fully healed, though the baby opened its mouth to scream and cry, no sounds came out.

As an orphan growing up in the half elven shanty town, the boy, nick named Silence, found it hard to fit in. He couldn't speak which made it hard to play. He was small and unassuming, which made him hard to notice. In fact, he started to understand that between his gruesome neck, his sad story, his lack of voice and his boring looks, people seemed to not want to see him. The matron at the orphanage game him books that showed how to make signs with his hands, so that he could speak, but almost no one else knew the language. He could write, but few wanted to spend time reading his notes.

He was not trained as one might thing a boy should be trained. He learned mostly by watching. He was the boys training to be warriors fight and he copied what they did to train. He watched the rangers as they faded into the trees and learned to step carefully and hide. He tried to learn to cast but without voice he could not. Most importantly though, he watched the beggars steal.

After that the story was uninteresting and has been told a thousand times. Young boy becomes a thief. Young boy gains infamy for his nimble fingers. Young boy steals without any consideration of who from.

Then he stole from the Dark. The god Kerriariadne took offense to this small half elves gall to steal from his flock, blessed one of his followers and bade them hunt and kill the child. On the same Western highway that his family met their end on, three members of the dark found the young thief hunting purses and jumped him. Cursed, blinded and heavily wounded, the child manage to flee the markets, flee onto the highway, flee back to his shanty town and flee into the safe resting places found within the town. The entire time being pursued, summoned and attacked.

The god Kerriariadne, seeing this all, impressed at the child's tenacity, ability to survive, called off the Dark and bid his healers to heal the child. He told the child he was impressed and that if he could ever learn to speak and cast a spell, Silence could find a home within the Dark.

Silence explained to the god that this was impossible, that without speech he could not learn the ways of magic, but the god held firm. Silence set upon a quest that day and eventually, stormed into the gods temple and before the god and his flock, unscrolled a magic scroll and with force of will made the spell leap from the page.

There, Silence told the god in his language of signing, I have cast magic before you, I wish to follow you.

Kerriariadne, a god who was ever impressed by ingenuity, agreed that the thief and done as asked. He allowed the thief to worship and as a gift, crafted an amulet that when worn would allow for any who saw the thief's language of signs, to understand it.

And Silence's rain of thiefly terror began.

[ 18] Silence: I think I have to admit to myself that my mudding days are over
Sun Oct 30 20:12:10 2005
To followers of: Kerriariadne
i've loved being in dark
In my 11 years of playing this game
Silence has been my favirote character
and I mean this in no way as a simple pleasentry but Dark has been my favirote following so far
and I think in total, combining all my characters, i must have followed at least 20 gods by now
and Silence has been in dark since like level 20, so in a lot of ways in my mind without dark silence wouldn't have been as much fun
If the mud picks up again I might come back
but right now it is just no fun wandering around with no one to steal from
so I plan to check in every now and then, but mostly I'm retired
