  25. 25. Bilbo - The Rogue by BorconyxI think that Bilbo would be a rogue, considering that his nickname is Burglar Baggins. I think thisbecause "stealth is the first class ability a rogue can get"(Rogue 1).Stealth is needed to be a good burglar because you cant wake the guards and you can`t make noise orthe alarms will go off. Even Gandalf stated that " you look more like a burglar than a grocer"(Tolkien 18).Plus, Bilbo is smart. I think that would make him a rogue because rogues are intelligent enough to knowthat when you turn invisible that you need to be quiet because going invisible doesnt mean they can`thear you.Works Cited"Rogue Talents."

  26. 26. Writing Mission StatementsThe purpose of this guild is to encourage students to learn about fantasyliterature, games, and writing. The Legacy gives students from around the worldthe opportunity to play the epic game, "World of Warcraft." We make everyeffort to join together as a team and show that that we are eager, fearless, andvictorious to make things happen. Learning through writing, games, storiesand fantasy literature is something students will never forget. –Monchy

  28. 28. Holiadore. It is a name of honor and pride. He has not yetlived up to the dream, but this night elf will train and train inthe ways of the druid until he achieves his ultimate goal- tobe as good as his father. His father never had pride in himso Holiadore ran away from home as a child and haspracticed the ways of the druid ever since. He uses theskins of his foes to craft armor to use against stronger foes.He goes through many perils to do the bidding of thetownspeople. He, in doing so, trains his abilities until theycan increase no more. And when he reaches his ultimategoal, he will return to the place where he was raised, theplace that, once, his family lived. And he will place flowersupon his fathers grave, and continue in his practices. Thisis the story of Holiadore.Fan Fiction
