    Open Chronicles Striking Out

    Alliria. A thriving city, built upon the greed of many, where wealth is power. This was the same city Dauner had established the Reaper's Den in. With the initial framework for his plans in place, all he needed to do was sit back and wait. Once he'd amassed a suitable army, he would find, or...
  2. Rangvaldr Tal'deneshaar

    Private Tales The Mountain Pass

    The Spine It had been some weeks since Valdr had settled in his temporary quarters of Route. Months since he and his betrothed had toured his Homeland. The truth of it, was that he found much more peace out east. Less confined. There were more kingdoms, more warbands, more variables and far...

  4. Bebin Theros

    Knights of Anathaeum From the Root

    Three Years Ago It had been several days since they had left the safety of the Monastery and traveled north and east toward the Spine.

  5. Kuu

    Private Tales Something You Don’t Recognize but Remember

    [art cred] Early morning in the foothills of the spine, snow still coating the forest floor despite winter having come to an end.

  6. Lyra

    Private Tales Silver Goddess of the Stars and… Meepo the Magnificent?

    [art cred] The song of birds could be heard before the sun had even began to rise. Despite the early spring chill, small woodland creatures that resided in the winter-like depths of The Spine were out and about, already working on foraging for the day. White colored pine martens were dashing...

  8. Kieran Harrovian

    Private Tales The Newlywed Game

    Somewhere off the shore of the Crobhear Lake. Harrovian Manor. Kieran had done some pretty terrible things in his life. Buying and marring the beautiful human, Brie (new surname Harrovian), was probably up towards the top of the list. Was he ashamed? No. Regretful? Hell no. Entertained...
  9. Hector

    Private Tales Days most Dark

    Some Five Years Ago... Tall and with a straight back, Helena reminded herself. One hand on the scabbard, with eyes upon the horizon. She remembered Master Hiling's advice, and while the Dawn's Master of Life was a half-dwarf who stood some four feet and a half, Helena could never deny how...
  10. Innis

    Fable - Ask How big can the spider be?

    Rootgrot Burrow, beneath the Astenvale Monastery. Thick tendrils of root and branch coiled upwards in an organic and intricate weave, forming ceiling, walls, and support columns all in one go. The further one got towards the outer edge of the Burrow, the more open and forest-y things felt...
  11. Helena

    Private Tales Upon Ragged Peaks

    It had been a day since they had left behind their horses - the terrain too treacherous to risk their mounts- two days since they had left the safety and comforts of the monastery, and the climb up the rocky and barren trail was harsh, though Helena did not seem at all harried by it. Born upon...
  12. Coyote Kilduff

    Fable - Ask Cripple Creek

    Coyote breathes in deeply, appreciating the scent of the mountain air, and the tiny little wildflowers wafting up to him as Yorel steps over them. This was the farthest North he'd been, and likely the highest up the Spine he's been as well, given the look of the landscape, and the way the few...
  13. Hector

    Private Tales Dread by Daylight

    Pursuant Eironmar was an exemplary Knight of the Order. Strong in character as he was in stature and somewhat demure despite his noble lineage and earned reputation. To think, that Captain Helena would assign Hector as the Dusk Pursuant's second. It was an honor. Even if it meant taking on a...
  14. Dorian

    Dreadlords Parade of Dancing Stars

  15. Eren'thiel Xyrdithas

    Private Tales Light and Fire

    Winter. Its chill was often anything but an embrace to most. To Erën, at least to a degree, it was. Many of his years had been spent in these northern lands, and he had grown to appreciate much of what it offered. The cold was often one of those things. He closed a door quietly behind him, and...
  16. Vayden

    Fable - Ask Of Fog and Fury

    The air was heavy today with chill and mist. Fog hung so thick it was surprising a dark scaled draconian’s breath didn’t make it dance and flow. That man, by the name of Vayden, wondered idly if his heart fire would do the trick. With no one nearby to discourage his curious thought he let it...
  17. Quacey

    Private Tales Near the Edge Yet Already Falling

    Weep Cry Mourn Life to Death Death to Rebirth Quacey sighed as he reread his most recent poem. Morbid. It was too morbid. Was he still shaken from before? Memories of that event still danced in and out of his dreams. Both the waking ones and those while asleep. So much had happened in such a...
  18. Vayden

    LFG 1x1 Sad Dragon Needs Friends

  19. Vayden

    Fate - First Reply Show Me What's Beyond the Sky

    Upon the chilly slopes of the spine stood a large dark draconian. Vayden stared into the cool midday sky his gaze filled with fire as his mind wrestled with existential problems. The loss of everything he once thought crucial for life had caused him to question a lot of his beliefs. These...

    Private Tales The Price of Freedom

    Amidst the cold peaks of The Spine swooped a pair of draconians. There was nothing elegant about the sight in the light of the purple morning sky. The early sun rays shown clear on a seen of struggle and determination. One female draconian named Lessa lay in the arms of the other, a male named...
