Bramble & Patches

Though it’s not common knowledge, there was a NeoPox outbreak that occurred a couple days before Lord Kass declared war on Meridell.

Here Now

Cntral Cavern -as its name implied- was located in the heart of Moltara, sitting snugly between the maze of tunnels above and the pits of magma below. And because of its location, it was known as Moltara's go-to rendezvous point.

The Celebration that Nobody Saw Coming

“Woah – that’s so cool!” Myth said to the television as she pulled on her rain boots and coat, both with a floral design. “But,” she started, standing up. Her wings popped out, her antenna poking through her rain cap. She was a Faerie Xweetok, a beautiful one.

Lisha & Jeran: Their Reunion in Words

You don't know how hard it was for me.

You don't know, you couldn't know, no matter how many times I've told you, no matter how vividly I try to express those old feelings, faded and healed now, but plaguing for so long.

"Doe's Explosive Reunion" by skutterbotched
I don’t particularly enjoy being alone in a silent, empty cavern, but here I am. I can hear Korbats in the very far reaches of the cavern doing… whatever Korbats do. I’m not familiar with their habits- as a big, Stealthy Uni, I avoid caves like this. I wouldn’t say I’m claustrophobic, but the enclosed spaces do typically trip up a primal anxiety that I’d rather not think about. As for why I’m in the cave? Well, someone needed an item retrieved and gave me a vague description of what it looks like, and then sent me into the general area it was lost. This one just so happens to be a magic-cancelling cave, so I can’t just cast a retrieval spell and let it come to me and collect my paycheck. I don’t even know how people lose items in these places. And if you lost it here, why don’t you go back in to get it yourself? And why couldn’t they ask someone smaller, like Amulatt? She’s like three feet tall at the shoulder. That’s way more doable than trying to get my frame, which is six foot at the shoulder, eight at my head, through these stupid narrow and low passages that seem to get narrower as I get deeper into the cave. I’ve hit my horn on the ceiling more times than I can count, and it’s not until I’m nearly crouching that I finally see the item I’ve been sent to retrieve. "Of course it’s a necklace," I say to myself.

Rehabilitation
Over the flurry of green and cracked earth, a sliver of the deepest orange crept up over the chasm of Faerieland. It set the sky ablaze with oranges and pinks, and the glimmer of stars fell away. Darkened clouds absorbed the tint, now drifting without purpose. The light enveloped every angle of the stony slopes and enhanced the darkened valleys crevices.
