Being chosen by a God to act as his champion is pretty cool. Being sent to Equestria, even cooler. I just wish I hadn't pissed off the guy before he told me what I'm supposed to be doing here. Now, lost in Equestria without a clue, and with only a naive Spriggan for company, I hope to find my purpose in this crazy world.
My name is Paul O'Brian, and this is my story.

So, this is my first submission to Fimfiction.net, and I chose to start with a Chess Game of the Gods Story. These stories are of great interest to me, so I decided to try one of my own. All events within this story occur during the plot of The ballad of Echo the Diamond Dog and Griffin the Griffin, as well as the other CGotG stories, and all credit for this universe goes to Rust and Blackwing.
Characters will be added as they appear. Rated T but does contain harsh language.

Hmmmmm.

Yes, I think I shall read this as it unfolds. I don't usually enjoy the side stories from this particular universe, but that's usually because of shitty grammatics. I dare to believe that that won't be the problem with this story. Keep it up! :twilightsmile:

Good to hear! One thing I pride myself on is making sure my writing is correct, both in spelling and in grammar. I've been dying to submit something to this site for quite a while, and this seemed as good a place as any to start. Expect longer chapters in the future, though, the beginnings were never my strong suit. Chapter 3 is almost finished, so expect that in at most two days!

Welp, got this up faster than expected, but then again it's shorter than I meant it to be as well. Apologies if you were hoping for more, I promise the next few chapters will have much more to them. Stay tuned!

Considering the mass influx of Chess Game stories I like where yours is going. It's very well written and composed. I'm looking forward to future updates.

When will he learn his power of the eyes? I know that basilisks have paralyzing eye powers. Or maybe powers like the cockatrice.

No worries, I will be explaining that in the next chapter. Just know, I have pretty much completely nerfed the Basilisk's ability to kill with a glance. Otherwise, poor Sal wouldn't be able to do so much as hold a conversation with somepony without me having to kill off a character. I instead have devised an alternative which I hope you will all find both satisfactory and sensible. Anyways, already getting started on the next chapter, and thank you to all of you who have favorited or followed this story so far! I'm like a changeling, I thrive on your love!

859276 why not both paralyzing powers for those he want to eat and power like the cockatrice for those who wanna eat/harm him?

859470 So basically it's an ability that can be activated when he wants it. Oh oh! Or, or! He could have double eyelids so that when one is open the other is clear, so he doesn't paralyze anyone, and when the clear one is open, it hits people with full force!

Not quite. You'll have to wait for the next chapter to find out, which should be up by sunday at the latest. (And I mean latest, my goal is to get the next one done by late thursday night, possibly very early friday morning.
Love the feedback, and I find your ideas to be quite interesting as well!:raritywink:
See you all in the next chapter!

Basilisk

From Greek basilisk means "king", "ruler of the snakes` kingdom". It's other translation can mean "little crown".

Basilisks are said to be creatures of great evil. Almost every time a basilisk is described, there is the little detail that they can kill a person with one glance, and can turn a person to stone when their eyes meet through a ghost or a reflective surface. Basilisks have many different forms, depending on the myth. Traditionally, the basilisk is a small snake twelve fingers long, with a spot on it's head, that lives in Africa. It issupposedlykilled by the scent of aweasel'surine. Some myths say basilisks are giant snakes that have venom stored in their teeth, and if one of its teeth just scratch your skin, you will die; unless you have a Phoenix or a store of Phoenix tears nearby. Other myths say that the basilisk is a giant, ugly rooster that hatched from a chicken's egg being incubated by a frog or toad. The rooster basilisk is usually described as having dead parasites falling off of its feathers. This myth says that if the basilisk sees its reflection, it will explode, and the resulting dust is lethal if inhaled. In most basilisk myths, the basilisk will die if it hears the crowing of a rooster.

Favorited and keeping an eye on this!

Loving this story so far. I'm pretty sure you'll make best friends with both Griffin and Knightmare if you ever meet them.

Wow, I can't tell you how much that sort of praise means to me! It was guys like you, Griffin, and Knightmare who inspired me to write this story! Thank you!
And an extra thank you to all who have read and enjoyed this story so far!

Hey everyone, I've got some slightly bad news. It turns out, FurryGoose has already established some facts about Basilisks in his own story, Rise of the Rook. Due to the fact that his story came first, I will have to change some elements of my own if I hope to preserve the canon of the Chess Game of the Gods Universe. But let me get to the point: The next chapter will be 1 or 2 days late as I compile the necessary research and adapt my story to fit it. (In other words, read his story and jot down a couple things he says about Basilisks, and then shoehorn it into mine.) Just know that this DOES NOT mean I will be changing anything about my own, FurryGoose and I have agreed on making his Basilisks and my own two separate subspecies, so we may each practice our own ideas without contradicting each other. Now, some of you may think this seems like a whole lot of unnecessary effort, but one thing you must know is that I absolutely adore how each of the stories in this universe work to make sense within each other, without disrupting the canon storyline, and to detract from that would be to work against the very reason I got interested in writing this story in the first place. To put it briefly, I’m doing this ‘cause dems da rules. I hope all of you understand the slight delay, but know that I still will hold on to my goal of no later than Sunday for the next new chapter. Thank You.

So, his powers have not developed yet eh? Damn you for finding a legitimate explanation. I wanted to see something get paralyzed or turned to stone or something. And also, no first for you! :trollestia:

it took me a while but whlie i was reading i just remembered why the spiders are afraid of basilisks :derpytongue2:

Great work on the introduction! And the likes' bar is somethin' huh?:pinkiesmile:

Well, that's the basilisk situation sorted.
Would be hilarious if one showed up. Well done on the chapter, keep it up!

Thanks, I'm glad to have it resolved too. Though, unless either of us feels up to a crossover anytime soon, I doubt a Greater Basilisk will make an appearance.

Thanks! Glad you think so! I'm just happy to be contributing to the community! Well, that and to gain enough likes to swell my massive ego.:trollestia:

This is a very good story, nice to see something about snakes, and I bloody hate spiders as well. Scared of them, but when I see them I get angry, swear then kill them. You did a good job with describing Sal, and makes for an interesting read. Thank you and please update when able.

Great story! Can't wait fir more. I figured something like that would happen when he started to eat the snake. Whenever I see a spider I wanna grab my dad's AR15 and shoot the tiny devil.

Hey, I have a question. Where do Mistwatch basilisks live, then? I saw tropical, would that be the Great Southern Rainforest? Would any live in the Everfree Forest?

Mistwatch basilisks live solely in the Mistwatch Isles, off the coast of Black Marsh, Southeast of Equestria.
They are extremely reclusive, and would almost never be found outside the Isles, unless they were banished. If they were banished, they would probably be in the Great Southern Rainforest, or possibly Black Marsh.

This wouldn’t be the same basaltic from the GGG (where ember curb stomped Luna) would it?

King cobras don't spit venom. Yes, there are spitting cobras, but kings aren't among them.

My parents went through divorce when I was a little kid, so I feel for ya.

Don´t worry, I think all of us understand you. Take your time and get better.
Good luck

Aye'! We got 'chu bro!

Wow long hiatus.

i wish you good luck man i hope you feel better
