The Trials

The Trials


Everyone has a Trial, stuck on their hand when they were born. Now these kids have turned 18, these Trials come to action.

329 readers have visited The Trials since Mattyman24 created it.


5 Kids. 3 Boys. 2 Girls. Born on exactly the same day- 1st January 1988. Split apart to different countries, never met each other. One boy, Mark Stunt (Played by Mattyman24) woke up on his 18th Birthday. Or the first day of the year 2000. Bright, sunny day- beautiful morning too. He go up and pulled on some clothes, running downstairs to see his family and hopefully...the best day ever! Mark reached the living room and dived onto the couch.
"I'm ready for-" He stopped and looked around, there was no-one there. Sighing, he ran through the conservatory and out into the garden.
"SUPRISE!" His little sister Laura yelled. Mark grinned and went to hug his sister. After cake and lots of XBOXing upstairs, Mark went out to see his mates, so he called his best friend James to come down and party. It was New Year's Day as well so everyone was in a good mood. Later, when James had to go at about 10 pm, Mark grinned and went to sit in his room and watch the TV. But something was different, like, the scar on his hand he's had all his life. It was different, not in a huge way, but...the shape was changing. It used to be just a line on his hand, nothing special. Now, there was a jagged edge at the start.
"Weird." Mark muttered, and hurried out of the room to check it out in the bathroom.
"No, no." His mum interrupted. "Not before your present."
Mark laughed and together they went downstairs, where Dad and Laura were waiting next to a present in the hall.
They all sung happy birthday and then Mark ripped open his present.
"Hmn, are you sure this is right? It's just a bunch of my CD's." Mark asked.
His Dad burst out laughing and opened the front door, "To go with..."
"A CAR?!!" Mark exploded and ran outside, his life had always been good. Never a bad thing, no. He was always the centre of attention, and even though sometimes his parents treated him like a little kid, he didn't mind. His friends did everything for him and he was the coolest guy at Uni. Yes, he went to Uni too. Now, a new car too! Mark jumped in it and took it for a test drive.
"Audi, not bad." He said to himself, "Guess they finally know me." Now having time alone, Mark checked his hand. Weirder. Another line...
Later, in bed. 11:57. Mark really needed the toilet now...
11:58 and Mark couldn't take it, he got up and bolted too the loo. 11:59. All better, Mark washing his hands, and took liberty of checking his hand again.
"Whoaa..." It had formed more lines, and said the letters, B A and then just another line. 30 seconds to Midnight, and Mark is staring at his hand. Another line is appearing and its going right...down...left. Stop at the other line. It made another letter, the letter D.
"Bad? What's Bad?" Mark said. 10 seconds...
"Is this some kind of joke?" He whispered.
Mark fell down, his hand burning like a roasting fire. He screamed. And a voice was ringing inside his head.
'Everything is changing...Mark Stunt. Be prepared. 18 years I have waited. Now it's time to take action. Bring on the Trial, Mark.
Everything is changing.'
And Mark fell asleep and he knew when he woke up that things were going to be a lot different.

By creating Collectibles, you can reward your players with unique items that accentuate their character sheets.

Once an Item has been created, it can be spawned in the IC using /spawn Item Name (case-sensitive, as usual) — this can be followed with /take Item Name to retrieve the item into the current character's inventory.


Give your Universe life by adding a Mob, which are auto-replenishing NPCs your players can interact with. Useful for some quick hack-and-slash fun!
