Zolifar: A Tale of Life and the Wasting of It

As a young Seedling, life was hard for Zolifar Marktof TreeMan. Being a royal, friends were few and far between. The few that did want to associate with him did so only for their own gain. His father, King TreeMan, was far too busy with matters of state and politics to raise him. Zolifar’s mother had died in childbirth. The upbringing of Zolifar was not one of unconditional love; the rough hands of tired housemaids showed no compassion. Note that Zolifar’s upbringing was not the only cause of his lack of friendship; he was as spoiled and arrogant as a prince can be.

To cope, young Zolifar spent most of his time among the court magi and alchemists. While there was no parenting from the scholars, there was teaching. The educated men and women delighted in passing on their knowledge, and Zolifar was a more than eager student. Zolifar proved to have a scholar’s mind; he quickly understood complex incantations and formulae.

Upon reaching the age-mark of Sapling, Zolifar had gained a reputation as a prodigy. While most Seedlings’ task for passage to Sapling was to engage in mock-combat, Zolifar chose to demonstrate his mastery of the Imperial Druid’s magic. The judges’ reaction was at first one of surprise, then of awe. A mere Seedling had mastered magic that an Ent, even an Ent Lord, would need to spend years studying.

Years passed and faded, as did Zolifar’s interests. Zolifar had grown bored of the physical world; mastering all forms of magic in Sylvannia can tend to make other tasks boring. Zolifar was in the age-mark of Unknown; the age-mark that was in between a man and a child. An official name had not been given to this age-mark, but unofficially many called this span of time The Treenage Years. While Zolifar’s age-mark was still young, his skill-mark was at the level of Ancient. Few would achieve the skill-mark of Ancient in a century, and those that did were considered to be the strongest and wisest of magi in Sylvannia. Never before had a young Treenager come close to this skill-mark, but to even reach that rank while so young had never been dreamed of.

As you might imagine, achieving so much while so young leaves little for the latter years. Zolifar began his new life in The Net. The Net, called Leynet by some, was tapping into the web-like leylines that were the roots of Yggdrassil, The World Tree. If many people connected into those leylines, web-like, colossal, and vast in number as they were, a form of communication could be established.

Soon, Rootmancers appeared. Rootmancers could control these leylines and add modify the fibers within, or add accessories to the outsides of these leylines. One Rootmancer was known as Notch, for he had a notch on his bark for every time he had succeeded in life. Seeing as there was only one notch (it spanned his entire back though) , he was given the name Notch. Notch had invented a “game” (as they were being called) that was available through TreeC’s. TreeC’s being one of the Rootmancers’ greatest hits, they were devices that allowed for sight in the leyline/digital world. The full name was TreeComputer. Seeing as sight in leylines was fabricated, it could be altered in any number of ways. Users of games on TreeC’s were called Leyers, named after their leyline connections.

To the point, the Ent known as Notch had made a game he called Minecraft. The inspiration had come from games made by other Rootmancers, but many could see this as a more or less original concept. The game classified as Trindie, but became a massive hit. Zolifar was intrigued by this game, and discovered that there was a heavily downgraded but heavily moddable version of the game, called Classic Mode.

There was a rather extensive list of Lervers hosting multileyer Classic games. Lervers are leyline lobbies/multilayer rooms that involved one large leyline taking signals from other leylines, all across Sylvannia. Those signals were the transmitted digital Leyers going to the large Lerver.

Zolifar, a lover of puns, was attracted to one Lerver in the Lerver-Leyst in particular; a Lerver called ALL IN THE MINED. ALL IN THE MINED appeared to have an active and fun Leyerbase and Leymunity. Zolifar spent much time there, befriending the local Leyers and experimenting with building (one of the main points of Minecraft, a sandbox game). Zolifar was not fond of every Leyer though; some made sport of destroying others’ buildings. There was no fear of this beings deemed “griefers” though; Leyderators patrolled the multiple worlds of the Lerver and made quick work of the griefers. Zolifar admired these Leyderators, and decided that his goal would be to become one.

Time again passed, as it tends to do. Zolifar had achieved his goal of becoming a Leyderator on ALL IN THE MINED, and spent much time on the happy Lerver. Though, as with all things that long amounts of time are spent doing, Classic became boring. Zolifar no longer looked forward to Leyderatoring, it became a chore. Yet there was hope in the form Minecraft’s Treemium version. ALL IN THE MINED had saved up their Leypoints (money, in the Leynet), and gotten a Lerver for the Treemium version. Zolifar knew that he would regain his interest in Minecraft should he play Treemium; stories told of it being almost a different game.

One would think that acquiring Treemium would be easy for a prince like Zolifar, but it would not be so. Zolifar had never depended on his uncaring father for anything, and he wasn’t about to cave-in now for Leypoints. Nothing would have happened if he did anyways; old royalty like King TreeMan tended to be suspicious of the Leynet and hated to put any money into Leypoints (lest a Tracker tracked their LeyditCard). The problem was, Zolifar had no money but the his father’s. This was a most perplexing problem as Troyalty were not allowed to work for money, since their clamed to the Throne of Sylvannia should have sufficient money.

Zolifar was reduced to participating in free contests, relying on the his skills and the charity of Pokemon. Zolifar knew he would win someday, yet that time has still not come.

Oho~
I love this short story. Very original ;D It strikes me as something Dr_Treeman would write about.. Regardless of whether or not Zolifar is actually Dr_Treeman, this is a good story.

Post  Voltzahl on Tue Jul 24, 2012 1:30 am

I've decided to do this in a "Q and A" format to the questions you asked.

How did you find AITM?: Well I joined this one server that quite hectic there was tons of people and no "personal" aspect to it at all, so I left.
Then scrolling through other servers I happened across one with a rather witty name called "All in the mined" I thought to myself "Only 3 people online its a American server and its name is funny...I'll check it out." .
And so I joined, fell down to the underground area in main and thought "Well I think I'mma build a floating house here." and started pillaring, then Lighting_Po froze me and asked "And what are you doing?" I replied "Building a floating house." Light then said "Ok." and unfroze me.
From then on I started meeting other staff members, MasterOnion helped walk me through getting WoM, and by then I decided that this was going to be my favorite server.

What do you think of the players?: To be honest your all putrid little worms......JUST KIDDING y'all are some of the coolest people I've met in online gaming.

What do think about getting SMP?: I'd love to have it, mostly because there are people that only play it now (like Demonic) and I'd like to see them again.

Why do you think you should get it?: Honesty I don't know.....but some people have been harassing me to get it lately so I thought I'd give this a shot.

I already have the game well, I want to win this for a friend a really good friend Smile I want to give him this gift code for his birthday cause thats all I can think of for a birthday present at the moment and he doesn't have a full minecraft account. I've known this friend since grade 2 we've been friends for a long long time. Your probably wondering why does he need full minecraft well me and my other friends usually play minecraft together and download cool texture packs and play all together on the server one of my friends made, we pvp together all the time, build, play with mobs, scare the heck outta each other with scary skins. Its so much fun! But since my bestist friend that i've known since grade 2 feels really left out and sometimes doesn't even wanna come over anymore and play with us cause he doesn't have the full game thats what we usually play when we all meet together Crying or Very sad He plays on classic servers alot he's no troller, griefer, spammer, hacker etc. He follows the rules on servers fine so if he ever comes on All in the Mined don't worry he will be very friendly and very funny Razz So all I wish is to try and get that gift code for my bestist friend ever. So if you find it in your heats to like this essay or not well I'm just wishing that it gets picked cause he's like a bro to me.

Why dont you just tell your friend to download the Cracked Edition of Minecraft? Then you can set the online mode to 'false' on your server so he can join.

Answers of the SUggestions that Johnson told when explaining

Post  xxMVP_playerxx on Wed Jul 25, 2012 4:44 pm

How did you find aitm?:

Well, I found aitm when I was in Minecraft.net looking at servers,then I saw This name called "All In The Mined", And I was like "Wow, DIfferent name then others", then I enter.When I saw around the server I was like "This looks so cool" and that's why I keep playing here because is more cooler than other servers.

What do you think of the players?:

Everybody Is cool (except some crazy guys especially novices) and everybody are gently and cool with me.

How would you feel getting SMP?:

I WOULD FEEL AMAZING AND VERY VERY HAPPY ABOUT IT, because SMP is VERY different than Classic and more cooler, and If I get SMP, I would still connect to Classic sometimes.

Thanks for seeing my other message of giveaway and I would lovely know what's your opinion of my messages Surprised Smile Very Happy

If you want to re-write your essay, add the new post link in the old one! To get the link, right-click your post title and select copy link address.
