Through our brothers’ eyes

February 27th, 2015 · No Comments · Character development, Events

Zun’dra’s scheme had backfired on him. As the fetish of Moz’feri oozed a a vinous haze a few feet from him in the dirt, he struggled to both catch his breath and snatch it back up in his grasp. He cursed under his breath as weakness snagged his muscles like a net. ‘Jen’roku’ he snarled […]

No country for old mons

February 23rd, 2015 · No Comments · Character development, Events

The burly young Drakkari mon scrunched his face up tightly as he looked down at the ground. After a few moments, and some considered pauses, he spoke up with wavering confidence. “Birds fly.” A pause. “…grass grows…”  His face contorted even more as he searched his mind for what he thought poetry to be. After […]

The Loa have their way.

April 27th, 2014 · No Comments · Events, Guild storylines

Night swept the cool sea air to where the sisters and brothers of the Ai’loa formed their numinous circle. Their torches burned brightly, hungrily, as if mimicking the roaring appetites of several mons and womons present. The Antu’thraze emerged from the night’s horizon with their feast in tow – the sisters Shi’nazzi and Shi’bemba, naked, blindfolded, wretched, and damned to the […]

A scribe without an arm.

March 25th, 2014 · 1 Comment · Character development, Events, Guild storylines

The city air left a bitter, coppery taste akin to blood in the scribe’s mouth. As the sun beat down, he and the prophet Zun’dra made their way to the Valley of Spirits to meet with the rest of the group. The High Priestess had contacted them via totem, sounding more agitated and out of […]

The totem of Zir’week

March 15th, 2014 · No Comments · Events, Guild storylines

The sapphire glint of Saph’ira’s arcane eye flashed and faded as soon as she felt her icy attack fail. Emboldened by the weak gesture, the enormous bat looped around for another assault whilst dangling the High Priestess in its claws. Dzivah could be seen roaring and kicking, but to no avail: The bat Queen of the brood […]

Genesis.

March 5th, 2014 · No Comments · Beginnings, Events, Guild storylines

“Daughter, take my hand! Now!” Zun’dra reached his hand up in almost pliant submission to the terrified magi. Her wet hair wrapped her face and shoulders in an undignified grip. Her body shook. In one hand curled behind her back snuck a fine dagger, the hilt of which she anxiously fingered. “Dzivah! Come take papa’s hand!” The shouts […]

A done deal.

“I use t’be a fisher, Zun’dra… Dat was how I be raised t’hunt, in de early days on da isle.”  “Wha’ be di biggest ting ya ever did catch?” “De biggest ting? I catch a sea-snake, once! Big as de boat I was in…” “Ya remember ‘ow yu did et?” “Gave it de biggest hug […]

Try to wake up.

February 21st, 2014 · No Comments · Character development, Events

Laikah’s vision shifted and she found herself laying comfortably on her side, a cool breeze amiably sweeping her sweaty, matted hair from her face. She curled her fingers into a fist to test her strength. So far, so good. Gone now was the shrill sound of vine cracking and twisting underfoot, the chittering of creatures borne […]

Infiltration.

September 8th, 2013 · No Comments · Events

It was a mad idea. It was even crazier putting it into action. Not only was he putting his own life at risk, but he was endangering her life mere months away from the culmination of a life’s work; the most important prophecy was showing the first hopeful signs of bearing reality. Dzivah. Zun’dra looked down from […]

Four daggers and a pact.

August 17th, 2013 · No Comments · Events, Guild storylines

Zun’dra tipped his head back and let the last few drop of rum glide down his throat. Eyeing the empty canteen, he chuckled to himself about how he no longer regretted setting the rest of it alight just a few hours earlier. Nodding in self-affirmation, he tossed the canteen unceremoniously over his shoulder and peered […]
