    Fable - Ask Where demons smoke sinners

    Belnegand, the tallest peak in view from Sey'Kube's mountainous vista, it certainly was not the tallest in Seret with some meagre 5 kilometres in height. However, it certainly was the tallest of the active volcanos. Tipped in snow while the valley beneath blossomed in spring-blooms, it was an...

    Fable - Ask Imhotat: Bring us truth

    Ripe grains grew from the path west and east of the river of life. The wooden litter painted gold and covered in black-star-speckled cloth rose high above the seagrass. Carried by 8 maned males, embellished from head to toe. Behind it a retinue of soldiers of many packs. The royal litter carried...
  3. Méchanteau

    Open Chronicles A Corpse City for a Corpse King

    Méchanteau had believed since forever that necromancers were the most selfish and nihilistic of all creatures. Having heard of the Eternum, and the coven's attempt at an undead nation, he was proven wrong. Not all of his ilk were territorial eccentrics, some were just stupid and very successful...

    Private Tales Fire: The Spark of Civilization

    The emperor arrived at the mausoleum without any fanfare or guards. He hardly needed them here. He craned his neck, looking up at the top of the structure, then back down to the black, gaping entrance. Necromancers. He hated necromancers. With a grimace and a shudder, he entered the mausoleum...

    Private Tales Cold Stone Hearts

    Annuakat, lower levels. Beneath the coastal city were a network of catacombs and natural caverns. The upper tier were used as storage. Below this lay the dungeons for the worst prisoners, where no light shines. And below even this? The bones of the ancient city. Former houses and walls. In the...

    Fable - Ask It's What's On the Inside That Counts

    Annuakat, Amol-Kalit The Royal Palace - First Chamber of the Imperial Mortician Gaheris removed his mask. It was a large and ungainly thing: wooden, beak-shaped, and filled with all manner of pleasant-smelling herb. Not a necessity for the work he did, but it offered a welcome respite. He wiped...
  7. The Wight Knight

    Private Tales In Searching

    The Wight Knight had left Elbion approximately a month ago. He wanted to search for any means of understanding magic, but his appearance aided him in talking to no one. He'd tried a library, but couldn't make sense of any of the letters. How long had he been asleep if the alphabet had changed so...

    Open Chronicles Heavy are the burdens of apostates

    An impromptu crowd has happened on the main square of Jaleyaana. People from all around the desert were caught up in the midst of it all. Whether they came from as far as Maraan or as close as Elbion. Here it was always advised to keep a low profile if not of the right faith, whether you...
  9. Kjaran Mak Aodha

    Private Tales Desert Convoy

    Amol-Kalit was different to Kjaran. So much had changed but the last time he'd been here was nearly a score of years ago. He'd been young then and loving life. Work was easy to come by and he'd pissed away plenty of gold and silver knowing that he'd easily make more by signing on with a...

    Open Chronicles Empire diplomacy 2: Electric boogaloo

    Steve reflected on the things that might be counted as mistakes in his previous attempt to improve relations between The Empire, and The Eternum. One maybe a letter was not personal, or respecting enough. Showing up yourself, or at the very least sending a humanoid messenger shows more respect...

    Private Tales Royal Affairs

    The so-called god-emperor of Amol-Kalit sat in private dining chambers at the manse in Tyria used for distinguished guests. He sipped wine from his goblet and watched the door, wondering how long Xaviera would make him wait. Even now, his fleet was out at sea under the command of Maho Sparhawk...

    Private Tales Many Forms of Thirst

    "I heard he lights maidens on fire," Aurora whispered next to Kailyn, huddling close to the wagon piled high with the Sparrow's precious belongings. "Don't yah think kissing a fire giant would hurt? All that magma," Samson chided, shifting the sack of grain on one of his broad shoulders...

    The wayfarer’s rest station at the small oasis near the Cortosi border had been cleared out of all occupants save twenty black robed individuals. They surrounded the small structure. Inside, Gerra sat at one of the inn’s tables, waiting for the arrival of Selene. They had much to discuss in...

    Open Chronicles Skirmish for Taimin

    (Please respect that this is a ~70 man conflict) Hovels lined the distance, and even further back were the mountains, stretching far across the west-eastern line as one might see. The village of Taimin has seen many bloody days, and today would be no different. It was a fruitful oasis ripe of...

    Private Tales Of Sorcery

    In room of the golden pond in Ragash, Gerra awaited Medja. She was a sorceress who had risen high in his court in a short time, rivaling even Ava Gilleth's magics. The shimmering reflection of the pond caught the gold leafing of the walls and shone their reflection upon the ceiling. Gerra...

    Private Tales Industrious Espionage

    The city of Ragash was bursting at the seams with color, voices, scents. Delicate feats of architecture fluttered with garish fabrics suspended on pillars, to protect the chattering merchants below from the fiery sun. Camels bleated. The smell of spicy sausages on sticks mixed with the whiff of...

    Quest The Demons of Tel Madu

    Tel Madu, the southernmost city of Amol-Kalit, was once a great stronghold of the Cortosi, but it fell long ago to a warlord who rose up in the region and has remained in Kaliti hands ever since. Lugal Aqra, the Scorpion King, knew of Tel Madu's history and cared little. He cared even less for...

    Private Tales Shadow of contempt; The ancient's heart.

    Lord Blackwell They all yearned for the desert. The many ruins, graves and temples. Shadows of cities ancient and long forgotten. There was always a reason why it was such. But it was still good pay. It's been some weeks since the departure from Elbion. Stocks and morale were high. And...

    Open Chronicles Blessings of Light

    Amol Kalit - South Desert It had been a week now since they'd taken him. Three days since he'd slaughtered the lot. His skin was starting to burn, his lips were cracked, and he knew what little water he had left wouldn't last him much longer within the desert. A part of him wished that he...

    Open Chronicles What was buried

    "Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, in land basically right here, but not exactly right here. More like just in this general area of Amol-Kalit. But returning to the point: in this general there was once a great and powerful Djiin who had power beyond imagine, but this Djiin wished to...
