Behold! The Battle for Java Earth (Updated)

The geeks here at DZone (I count myself among them) were discussing the recent round of heat that Oracle has been taking in the press and the blogosphere. Then we imagined a world of fantasy where similar struggles were taking place.  This is the Realm of Java Earth:

The Cast

LPoD: Larry Prince of Darkness   (aka. Larry Elli-Sauron )
With his army of Orc-acles (and massive funds) he conquered the lands once held by Sun Mithrilsystems and acquired the all-powerful Ring of Java.  Some people of Java Earth think that Larry Elli-Sauron and his Orc-acles are misusing the Ring of Java, which was forged with the intention of giving its awesome power freely to all the lands of Java Earth.  Many Java Devs of the Shire are not concerned about the wrangling of far away kingdoms, but a strong number of others are forming an alliance against the lands of Redwood Shoredor. 

Gosling the Grey
He is a guide for the Java Devs of the Shire and he understands the dark ways of large, greedy kingdoms better than any other.  After bestowing his magic on the Ring of Java when it was forged at Sun Mithrilsystems, he chose exile from their lands when they were conquered by Orc-acles.  Now it is Gosling the Grey's mission to warn the Java Devs of the Shire about the dangers that Orc-acles bring to the entire Realm of Java Earth.

Minas Googleplex
Soon after the Orc-acles conquered Sun Mithrilsystems, Larry Elli-Sauron used the Ring of Java to invade the lands of Mountain Viewdor and the city of Minas Googleplex.  Several kingdoms of Java Earth were outraged by this unprovoked aggression.  Many have thrown their support behind the Googlers of Mountain Viewdor.  The riders of Apache-han also have issues with the Orc-acles because they do not acknowledge the legitimacy of Queen Harmony.  However, Queen Harmony says she has no connection to the current war between the Orc-acles and Mountain Viewdor

Java Devs of the Shire

Several leaders have emerged among the Java Devs of the Shire who are in favor of the alliance against Orc-acles (the AAO).  They tell tales about the evils of the Orc-acles and their plan to subvert the JCP union.  Other Java Devs, and the Chief of the Eclipse Plains, believe the JCP will be fine.  Colebourne Baggins has been one of the loudest critics of the Orc-acles and he has gathered a fellowship of Java Devs to set off on a journey and release the Ring of Java's power for every kingdom and save the JCP union.  The Java Devs have already slain the Hologic dragon, a potential ally of the Orc-acles.

You can help the Java Devs on their journey to Redwood Shoredor by telling us your own tales about the Realm of Java Earth in the comments.  Watch as the Duke moves closer to Redwood Shoredor as more lore is posted.


More lore has emerged about the Prince of Darkness that is Larry.  Former King of Sun Mithrilsystems, Sir McNealy, has levied some criticisms against the Dark Lord, but also admits that Elli-Sauron has great skills as a conqueror.
