  1. This place is too quiet. Thus, I bring you this tale. Loreroot has long fascinated me. The beings that can be found there reflect the nature of Loreroot itself - they are lively and fecund, full of vitality, and yet they grow up in place full of food and water and comfort. I know a thing they do not know in Loreroot: I know the ways of the Desert. In the Sands, we do not have an excess of of water and food to make us strong; we do not have shelter to teach us to guard ourselves; we do not have safety at any moment to teach us to be good people. We have only danger and privation and
  2. Name: War Maker: .Khalazdad. Started: A long time ago Duration: until I am bored with it Objective: Answer 6 questions Reward: My Spell Document or one entry into Necrovion Additional notes: put some effort into it or I will snub you. Name: Letters Maker: .Khalazdad. Started: 12 feb 09 Duration: May 1 Objective: Its a secret - you have to solve a small quest to get the larger. Reward: Wish
  3. Notably, I have little to add. This means a lot to me, and perhaps to you also - that you have no need of my wisdom or counsel in this matter. I would suggest only that the two rely on their instincts after taking counsel, because what happens inside the self is not amenable to logical process. K
  4. I tried to purify the water in the well. Necrovion is tainted, so tainted; I can obtain something fresh water from there, but only with difficulty. I used a Grasan as a filter. Do you wish to see what he became, taking the taint from the water? He became animistic. K [attachment=669:grasan_giant.jpg]
  5. The Darkness Wars drained the lands of the living and the resources of the Dead. There was much suffering, and much. Balance has been restored - but at what cost and for how long? The Necrovion Sentinels no longer train in the fighting arts. The warriors have gone, replaced by scholars. Sages, if you will, once again inhabit the Sagelands of old. We study all the arts of darkness. Deception and statecraft, murder and warfare, poison and vendetta... but also the nature of existence on both sides of the Sand, uses of imagination, philosophy and the application of power, biology and life
  6. Necrovion Sentinels will support this endeavor. A Maritime guild has potential. To those who see. K
  7. Thankyou for your good wishes. The man behind the keyboard completed his 35th trek around the sun. I've stopped counting age in years and have moved to centuries - I'm now .35. J for K
  8. The response to this was great. Just great. My personal thanks to everyone who participated in this contest/experiment. Much very good work was added here, and there are several portraits I would have used. In the end, I had to decide based on how well each matched the existing data, and then choose arbtrarily. No slight on those not selected. So without further ado: Morquor is the winner of this challenge. The prize is that I will wear your portrait. But only part of the time. Morrel is also the winner. The prize is that I will wear YOUR portrait. But only part of the time. The r
  9. Don't irritate me, Stormrunner. I'll... er... Actually, go ahead and irritate me. I was probably going to kill you anyway. So in the end you lose nothing. K
  10. Classic, Penny. Classic. As to the uniform question: clothes are a toughy but go around and look at the pages of my Sentinels. You should notice one uniform element. K
  11. Thankyou, Blckthorn. Those are indeed gnarly. We have ourselves a contest. Only ten days remain. Whatever else happens, I already have some great portraits. K
  12. This is what I think of when Glaistig is talking. Well, as best as I can do, anyway. K
  13. Actually Necro and Loreroot were open to contest last time - nonpublic meant places like Golemus or Sages Keep or the islands. Stuff like that. (There was some confusion, I did get it clarified at hig levels). So pardon some folks for doing what was always legal in the past. For the part of my flying minions, it was just inconvinient that I got the gate opening power just at the time when Heads contest started. God I hate heads. Also if you swear at Khalazdad in public, he will take you off the "kill quickly" list and add you to the "Barry Manilow Albums for Eternity" list, so settle d
  14. In many ways we are defined by our enemies. I grieve the loss of Wodin, who by opposing me made me greater. hate is the other side of love. Your concept of your enemy also defines you. If only the weak come against you, perhaps it is because you cannot imagine holding off the strong. If only a loser would disagree with you, then perhaps only a loser would take the time, because you are projecting what you hate in yourself onto those with whom you argue. I do enjoy the light-hearted teasing from my friends, but there is a serious side here too. Take these points to heart as you sharpen y
  15. This is within the rules, under the section "do whatever you want." We're off to a great start. What a terrific community. J for K
  16. OK, things take a weird turn early in the event... LOL... Don't know what a Puchu is but it is amusing. Keep this stuff coming! K
  17. This contest has ended. Winners are chosen. Further related art belongs in Fan Art. Again, thanks to everyone who played. I'm proud to be part of this community. +++ I want to commision a portrait. Of me. Because that's what despots do. I want to be remembered after I am gone - and I fear dissolution is the only possible outcome for me now. Go to the Fan Art section of this forum and see how I see myself. Read all of my notes here. Study how I act in public. Then, using my basic image, decide what the Lord of Dark Reaches should look like. Draw it, paint it, photoshop it, do whatever yo
  18. Of course, the thing you speak of is another metaphor. The stuff inside is the darkness and soft circularity within us, which is concealed and frightening. It is hidden away and to confront it directly is intolerable. The thing itself represents a portable home; in dreams, houses often represent the self, and in this case the self is sort of transient, insubstantial, in keeping with what we know of our existence here. EVERYTHING is a metaphor in this place. Its like living in someone else's nightmare but having some limited control over the events. K
  19. Alas. Scientists. The truth, I think, is that there is no planet, no sun, no dark and no light, no day and no night. My apologies for coming to upset the applecart. I think in a different way about these things and, whether or not you agree, I believe you will see the sense in what I say. I do not mean to denigrate your work, which is methodical and valid in its way. But the scientific process demands an argument, then let the best theory reign. I have fallen through many worlds - many and many - as have you, Bootes. As have most of us, I suspect. Most I don't remember. But I do reca
  20. The Angiens have already aided the Necrovion Sentinels. <laughs maniacally>
  21. Hey, I just draw what I see, Lulu. Don't heckle or I'll do one of you heckling. K
  22. The Necrovion Sentinels decided to fill their last council seat based on problem-solving ability. Thus a series of riddles were devised. The field quickly narrowed to two minds who would compete for the last seat. perrobotillo and Bad Sun Bath bot easily solved each of the riddles presented them. Now as the riddles get harder they spend more time considering their answers, knowing that the only prize for second place is losing. Here are the riddles they have solved so far: Find me in your shadow No matter where you go I'm the first and last In existance, you should know. Banish m
  23. I'd like to say, out of character, that I've been having an absolute blast here lately. And if I were able to give awards for roleplaying excellence, the list would be too long to address easily. Renavoid, you are in the top few on that count. Anyway, here is a new piece. It is entitled "Wodin confronts Khalazdad before the Gates of the Ages." Its back to character for me now... K
  24. After a quiet conversation with Wodin that turned into an angry confrontation, Khalazdad turned to the Shades, joining the Necrovion Guard. He stalks the land now, still barred from Necrovion and full of hatred and hunger for power. He recruits in the places where the disaffected gather in the shadows. Many have commented that he seems... changed...
