    Knights of Anathaeum For gods to menace fools

    The hollows of Astenvale monastery were winding and duplicitous. Maps did exist in the library's archives, but many were outdated, and few bothered to check them out anymore. The paths that were tread frequently were well lit, kept and dry chambers that contained cold storage, delicate root...
  2. Raul Renaut

    Fable - Ask That Sing In The Morn'

    Oh, under the merciful guidance of Dhavohr, may I be delivered to this Monastery? An errant rock tumbles under Raul's foot, heedless and foolish in his stride. He just barely catches himself from rolling his ankle. From putting himself out of effectiveness and leaving himself stranded...

    Journal An Emergent History of Curses and Their Bearers

    Here on a long forgotten shelf rests a thin book, just wide enough to have the chrysanthemum seal of the Knights of Anathaeum emblazoned on its spine. The book looks to be clad in blue leather, and someone, long ago, has pricked the outline of various constellations upon its cover in a fading...

    Knights of Anathaeum Eth Tikund

    ETH TIKUND (Exterior Pictured above) The Salty Bitch Tavern, or as the Dwarves say, Eth Tikund. Or as the humans say, Heaven on Earth. Created by the Dwarven Brewmaster Gorm Irűncask, it is the only real tavern to get drinks of worth in Astenvale. The rumor is, Old Gorm is the oldest Dwarf...
  9. Hector

    Knights of Anathaeum A Stone in the Road

    Caravan duty. It was... one of the least luxurious jobs a squire could be put on. But, Hector supposed he was glad for the opportunity. It was real work, after all. Far from the safety of the Monastery, and it implied that the Captains were beginning to consider him more capable. That or they...

    Private Tales Nightmare in the Twisted Temple

    To whomever stumbles upon this writing, I hope it serves as a warning to not repeat my folly. My love and ambition for knowledge has led me to many a foul tomb and many a forgotten city, necropolises buried beneath stone and dirt. The earth of Arethil is home to knowledge the likes of which...

    Private Tales Aftermath - The beginning

    The sounds were sickening, unearthly.. Sounds she’d only heard in her nightmares. Not even the years spent in the dungeons compared to the sounds deafening Alliria. Screams of pain, yells of taunts, battle cries, the gurgling of men, women and things dying, cries for help. It was all too much...
  12. Lorinna Astarel

    Fate - First Reply Middle of the Road

    OOC/ Unlike the title, open to up to 2 others. "Please, don't!" Lorinna called out. She had her longsword held in two hands, blade pointing in a straight line towards the bandits. They had pushed a pushed a tree across the road, forcing the carriage to stop. Now they formed a semicircle on...

    Journal Book - The Vampiric Mind and How To Survive It by Valborast Valchek

    INTRODUCTION Ignorance is not armour. Disdain to the truth of the world and those that populate it is not a weapon. If you appreciate this truth, proceed on with my blessing. To know of something foul is not to invite corruption into one's heart, it is does not tarnish; it is an act of...

    Knights of Anathaeum Tea Time with Helena: Faramund

    A chill wind blows through the Vale, the sky is overcast and a crisp rain pours down upon the land. Still, it is pleasant enough as you approach the Wyvern's Nest. Inside, you are greeted by fire-warmed air, the scents of fresh bread and aromatic teas full in the nose. At a table by the fire...

    Knights of Anathaeum Tea Time with Helena: Noa

    Near a sunlit window, with green viney plants sprawling about, and springing off the sill, sits the Captain of Dawn herself, Helena. She smiles warmly at you, and bids you welcome with a nod. “Good day, Noa” she says, almost over-polite. “Come, sit, have some tea with me,” she hands you a...
  16. Noa

    Fable - Ask Pretense of Spring Within the Sleeping Mountain

    [art cred is by Philipp Urlich] Noa knew it was evening from the serenade of crickets that surrounded her and to speak now would only emit an echoing tune of dissonance within the peaceful chorus of the wood near Astenvale Monastery . Ne nudged Noa’s shoulder, a single snort telling the blind...

    Fable - Ask To Know and Write of Blood

    Midnight in the library of the knights of Anathaeum's monastery; candles were burning softly and pages turned with ever increasing tenacity as passages were scanned, paragraphs re-read and chapters critiqued, all enacted with the accompaniment of the rare hum of approval and the frequent murmurs...

    Private Tales Sword Logic

    Some time ago... "...Why are you crying?" "You're stronger than I am. All of us, Syr Raye," the young Squire said, his face flushed red with frustration. "I understand the technique. You've drilled it into us since the wee hours of the morning. How are all of us supposed to overcome you?"...
  19. Methuselah

    Knights of Anathaeum Knocking is a Common Courtesy

    "Oh, you're talking about the swamps of endless torment?" The barkeep told him in a voice that was too matter of fact for the words he just uttered. Methuselah nodded his head in concern and possible disbelief as he repeated, "The swamps of endless torment?" "Yeah, the swamps of endless...
  20. Methuselah

    Private Tales Life and Death

    Life was easiest in binary. Good and evil. Light and dark. Life and death. Methuselah stood at the summit of a tall hill and observed the hamlet that lay tucked into the base of a deep valley. There were undoubtedly larger cities and larger problems out there, but today this was his problem...
