I am known by many names: Griffly, Haggis, The Vulcan, That Socially Awkward Yet Extroverted Otaku Guy, but you... You may call me... Gicwig.


You know the classic HiE thing, well it's about to get very Norse, and completely ridiculous.
Follow the adventures of a brony turned tree ent in this Chessgame of the Gods fic. Friends will be made, enemies will be fought, and a few pokemon references may be dropped.

Reading other chessverse stories is not required for reading this, but it is suggested.
Universe created by Blackwing and Rust
Hoping on getting Deutero-canon.

You, my fine author, have caught my attention.
Here, have a mustache. :moustache:

5279253 Well, I officially have someone that wants this to keep going. I guess I should start the next chapter.

5279265 You remind me that I really need to work on mine.

5279297 Well I put your story Tis' Lunacy in my read it later folder. I would have added your other one, but I don't watch Yu-Gi-Oh, so there's not much there for me.

5280129 Thanks and that is okay. The Yu-Gi-Oh one does not follow the anime what so ever. Just mostly monsters put into Equestria, because why not.

5280140 Hey is it okay if I just call you U2 and constantly reference their songs around you? Also, do you wish to try the reference challenge?

5280177 Yes. And I just realized how similar the names are.:facehoof: The name is suppose to be pronounce as the letter 'W'
And http://cdn.alltheragefaces.com/img/faces/large/determined-challenge-accepted-l.png

Okay, have fun, and I hope you have a beautiful day.

Im from sweden so i can't not like this:)

5281738 Thank you, I consider myself a Norse Mythology buff so expect a good deal of Norse stuff that isn't based on the Avengers.

5281778 well that's good to hear maybe even throw on fenrisulven huh?;)

5281970 Well for one I would just say Fenris, and he is already being used in a chessverse story, but there might be a crossover between the stories. I do plan, however to mention Sleipnir in this story.

You know why I don't like this story? The description. Not only is it short, undescriptive, but it is even poorly structured. Also, it seems you didn't want to make an original base for this story. To end, it also is being executed in such short word-amounts by unsteady, unseasoned hands.

You asked me to inform you what I didn't like about your story, I did.

5282181 Thank you, that's all I ask for. And you're right,I do need to work on my description, and length, I have a bad habit of condensing information, and not giving everything that needs to be known. It's something that I really need to work on. As for making an original fan-base, I'm afraid i don't fully understand what you mean? if you are referring to the fact that it's part of an already existing universe, I can't really help you there. I just liked the stories in said universe, and thought it would be fun to add one of my own.

5282202 I value stories than can break from the mainstream of stories, stray away from routine. And, unfortunately, yours does not.

Noted, I have ideas for some stuff like that, but they are nowhere near a point where I can start writing them yet.

5281999 ok yeah that would be cool for ponys he would be a giant:)

If you want giant, think about the fact that the main character is now going to be a 30 meter (60 foot) tall tree ent, In a world of 3 - 4 foot tall ponies.

For clarification, any mention to something that is from mlp or the chessverse is considered a reference. I may hide song lyrics as dialogue, or mimic a scene from a book, you never know. Since this is the first chapter the winner will get pre-reading privileges for future chapters.

Wouldn't that be practically the entire story though? With the MLP references unless it's things like '20 % Cooler' & 'The fun has been doubled' (Both of which are really overused) then the only 'references' I can think of would be characters and episodes.

Richard, I choose you.

I'm gonna guess that's a pokemon reference :ajbemused: Wouldn't even have noticed it weren't for the description.

5284548 Those outta be some fun reactions. I can't help but think of him wrestling an Ursa Minor; if I remember right it sounds like he'd be about between an Ursa Minor and an Ursa Major in Size.

Supposed to say isn't not is.

For clarification, any mention to something that isn't from mlp or the chessverse is considered a reference.


Richard, I choose you.

Would it help if there was an exclamation point?
Richard, I choose you!

5285546 No it was more of the fact that my mind just basically skipped over it; it's been awhile since I've watched Pokemon

Got it. Oh, does my reference clarification make more sense now?

I feel more arrows should meet knees :pinkiecrazy: cause you know the joke isn't like a thousand years old.

5294379 Just... no.

i need more more more more and more it like a pet peeve when im on a cliff hanear

5363634 And, you my good friend have just sealed the deal. I said that I was only going to continue this if there was enough demand for it. You have proven that there is. I'll get writing.

i can just imagine him catapulting a poor pony (mainly fluttershy i know im cruel)

5364934 I don't know about Fluttershy, but launching one of his future companions into battle, could be interesting.

if i may for being so bold will there be other video game reference such as world of warcraft

5372267 Probably not Wow, but there will be more game references. Though, there won't be many of those since I'm not much of a gamer. I actually don't even play Pokemon, it just happens to work well with this story. Here is a list of game series/ games that I might reference other than Pokemon: Final Fantasy, Assassin's Creed, Skyrim, Smite, Minecraft, League of Legends, Mario, Zelda, Tetris, Metroid, Sonic, God of War, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Slender, and I Wanna Be The Guy. Now just because it's on this list, that doesn't mean that it will be referenced; just that it has the potential to be referenced.

cant wait much longer running out of breath

"Intensive purposes" or "intents and purposes"?

Okay, you had my attention by being a Chess Game story, but the fact your chosen patron is a God I haven't heard of gets my interest. Time to see if you can keep it and make a good story.

You have done what I have only dreamed of happening, well done!:moustache:

7617126 What exactly did I do?

Someone actually knowing and using correct mythological norse facts. I can count on one hand how many people I know who can do this, and still have fingers leftover!
