Is Slartibartfast, Magrathean Fjord
Builder, really the same
person as Slart, the Barren Realms Immortal? You decide...
Barren Realms was not always an all-around
great MUD. It was once selfish
and full of greed. The story of how Barren came to real life starts with
a little dwarf boy. Wherever this boy went, nothing could ever get in his
way. He was special, guarded by a white aura and a disintegrating shield.
They made it extremely difficult for mobs to even hurt him. This
advantage allowed him to zoom to herodom with ease.
He then became
interested in fun and games. He was known as the relaxed hero who had no
time for work. He was especially interested in Connect 4 and blew everyone
away with his tactful moves and shiny medals. The gods favored him and
wished to make him an immortal. Nonetheless, the hero would have to do
something for the realm and not just for the community.
One day our hero went for a walk around Barren Realms. He walked all
around Barren's perimeter, glancing around at its beauty. But what he did
not know was that his disintegrating shield was leaving an enormous trail
of desolation behind him. Luckily his walk was around the realm and he
had created a great fjord! He noticed this and the Gods saw what he had
done. The hero had made a fjord stretching all around Barren creating an
ultimate defense against the evil that lurked around the realm.
Our hero was then made an immortal in honor of his work. And he was
known as Slart the immortal.
Slart shared his fun and games with everyone. He shared his sense of fun
and happiness and taught his followers his Connect 4 strategies. And
because of this young dwarf boy, Barren Realms became a better place...
Connect 4 isn't the only game Slart excels at! He's a rocking good table tennis
player as well.
