    Fate - First Reply A Desert Rose

    The bedouin canvas stretched high above the small arena in the ruins of the Forbidden City. While it may have cut back some on the harsh sun of Amol-Kalit, it did nothing to actually cool the air. And arena was a generous term. Just a large square patch with some rugs piled across the...
  2. Captain Jamira

    Fable - Ask Flight of the Serpents

    Jamira peeled the makeshift hijab from her face, the centuries-old curtain stiff and hard to breath through. The sand fell from it in cascades of faux-gold dust. A ruinous dowry for a bride of the deep desert. Like a figure of unearthly promise, she rose from the dune behind which she and her...

    Fable - Ask Šaltanus Reigns

    The many ancestors of Hesheb quietly flowed through the wetland. The reeds, which surrounded the permanent encampment, in this season, were so tall only the Anaphite could gaze beyond them. And even then, many were cut down for later use. Crafters were ready to make sandals, baskets and housing...

    The Empire The Throne of Tyria

    Across the water from Annuakat sat the city of Tyria, renowned for her mercantile ships and rich dyes of purple. Standing atop the palace ziggurat in Annuakat, Gerra gazed out at the nearby rival. His spies brought grave news. The courtiers of Tyria deposed Queen Xaviera in a coup, replacing...

    Fate - First Reply The Price of Freedom

    Ragash - Ahvaz Prison "Sssso what are you in for?" The massive hulk of a lizard man behind her leaned in, his voice a rasping hiss as he asked Khari. The odd serpentine eyes of his floated up and down the Daemonette, sticking clearly on the long horns which decorated the crown of her head. She...

    The Empire From the Bedrock [Imperial Hands]

    So much to be done, yet so little time. Balancing one's efforts between running a country and performing perhaps the greatest magical feat in the history of Arethil was certainly a weary task. In fact, if she had to do it all herself, Medja knew it would be positively overwhelming. Thankfully...
  7. Rahma

    Private Tales Old Wounds, New Blood

    Brotherhood. Camaraderie. Family. That was what had been promised to Rahma in exchange for his service. Well, that and a subsubstantial paycheck. Rahma had said that the only reason he was joining was for the latter, a convenient lie that he had told even himself, but...well, a lie was a lie...

    Private Tales Dignity, Duty and Other Delusions

    [art cred] Heading west from the great walls of Vel Anir, past the more green and hilly landscape that was lush and ripe from the early spring rains, a caravan seemed to be jostling along leisurely. If one were to look closely however they would see that amid the multitude of wagons pulled by...

    Fable - Ask Starfall

    Amol-Kalit, the land of ten thousand kings, and the newest of them was Gerra and his illustrious empire. Radrick hadn't traveled that way in at least half a century. The relative, but no doubt temporary "peace" and "stability" that the Empire had brought to the land gave him fewer reasons to pay...

    Open Chronicles Rumors of War

    "You are the king of Alcazar, beholden to the god of light. Do not seek the help of these heathens from across the river." "What would you have me do, red priest," said Andal II as he ran fingers through his dark beard and stared from a window of his keep upon the forces assembling below him...
  11. Otto von Geist

    Private Tales Snake Eyes

    The exact details of what had happened still weren't abundantly clear to Otto. He was rotting away in a dungeon now in Amol-Kalit, caught while trying to steal a crown jewel from the palace. The job description wasn't great, but the offer was too much for a veteran thief like him to pass up. He...
  12. Gerra

    The Empire The Spice Must Flow

    Nothing but a sea of sand extended in every direction in the wastes north of the Forgotten City. The wind caused the sand to drift about, like ocean currents. Cresting the ridge of a dune stood a tall figure in dark robes, surrounded by desert elves with bows drawn and spears ready. Below...
  13. Nahir

    Shivers Event Mischievous Bottle

    Coasting over white sands at breakneck speed, the polished wooden board sped through the trough of dune after dune. Weaving out his wild path, the young man balancing atop the thing screamed as he sped along. “Come on! Let’s go!” A surge of power pulsed in Nahir’s stomach, his Sahu working...

    Private Tales For Need of Water

    w/ Noelani There was wild scream as a young man went flying over the crest of a dune at unbelievable speed. The long polished wooden board Nahir had had made in Annuakat crashed back into the sand, sending a long white plume out behind him as he raced onward. He let out another wild whoop of...

    Fate - First Reply For Love of Water

    Water. He needed water. He'd been walking for 8 nights straight now, sleeping during the day under the limited shade of the rags he wore. Even for a Sand Elf, 8 days without water was seriously pushing it. If he hadn't been a soul sage, he definitely would have died by night 6. He needed to...
  16. Gerra

    The Empire The Savanna Tribes

    Few knew of the Emperor’s return. Only those few whom he took on the expedition into the Savanna. A cadre of his Immortals, their faces obscured by masks, surrounded him. Almost all others were simply servants and slaves who saw to the long baggage train of camels laden with goods from all along...

    Having departed Maraan three days back, Kiros found himself approaching a town further east than he had been in a decade and a half. Never before had he cause to return to Amol-Kalit, but never did he expect Itra to reveal Herself. Seeking to know more, he had only received varied accounts from...
