Hero's Song - Chapter Twenty-Five Migrate Wizard 2015-10-08 4 years 7 months ago

Harper isn't exactly hero material...she's a bard, a damn good one, and has spent most of her life blandishing tales about other people.

And more than a few are looking to her for something more...

Home Is Where the Heart Is Migrate Wizard 2015-10-02 4 years 7 months ago

The following document was recently discovered during an excavation many miles south of the Arberdan, along the west bank of the Sober, enclosed in a magically sealed chest. Both parchment and chest have been positively identified as pre-plague. The magus in the dig party needed four days to successfully disarm the trap, which he referred to as �beyond anything our Art can currently achieve�. While the author is unknown in current histories (and indeed, I have not been able to correctly identify the city he refers to), the below-mentioned �Gray Brotherhood� is even more of a mystery. No such organization has ever left known records in any of the former Imperial provinces. Furthermore, the footnotes listed at parchment�s end, while possibly meant to explain matters to the uninitiated, do little to answer the questions raised by the words in this document; more questions are raised than answered. I hereby submit this document to the Council, with attached report, that you might grant me a sabatical, at which time I will travel to the excavation site and search for more clues.

Horizons Migrate Wizard 2015-09-26 4 years 7 months ago

Dara struggled to pull herself up. She found the perfect place to climb on the western wall. The periapt was low enough and the masonry flawed enough for her to pull herself up. Her little hands searched for the cracks, thousand-year-old scars from the Siege of Aramis. She found them, recognizing the grainy surface of the thousand-year-old fissures. A smile crossed her face as she pulled herself up. As her head cleared the top of the periapt, a western breeze wrapped her face with a gentle greeting. With a last pull, Dara cleared the top of the periapt. She didn’t miss it. She let the scene fill her eyes; it’s majesty stirred in her, making her forget the climb and her aching muscles.

I Set Off Migrate Wizard 2015-10-17 4 years 7 months ago

A poem based upon the adventurer's trial, his trial into nature. What once was, is now lost. A chapter in his life has been closed, the adventurer sets off towards what he not yet knows existence of. The horizon is what merely guides him, guides him through the very essence of this world. This world does not rely upon human's interference, it relies upon what wraps our thoughts in absolute balance, nature. Only then we are at ease with ourselves.

Feel free to use it, or comment (constructive) on it. I would love to hear what such users as yourself feel and think while reading this, and your experience. Please vote as well, so I could have a reflection of the users' opinion.

If Only... Migrate Wizard 2015-09-24 4 years 7 months ago

"You say magic," asked the inquisitive sage.

"Yes, I do. But its not like magic as you know it," replied the great dragon.

"How do you mean?" asked the sage again.

"Well, our magic doesn't have any hand manipulations at all. We'd look a bit stupid trying to cast a spell whilst flying with our front legs wouldn't we," commented the great dragon.

A bit of my poetry.

In The Mage-King's Service Migrate Wizard 2015-09-30 4 years 7 months ago

Amidst the screams of pain, amidst the wailing of victims whose minds and flesh were being torn to shreds, a man stood. Pale green eyes, unkempt gray hair, an aging, weathered face and a crumbling body, he stood emotionless, simply watching the scene, looking for some imperceptible sign only he could recognize that would single out one or more of the writhing bodies. Single it out for something less conventional than pain.

Insurrection - A Tale of Amphibiana Migrate Wizard 2015-09-24 4 years 7 months ago

The aroma of fried grubs caused Hermit to awaken from his peaceful slumber. Still disoriented from his state of unconsciousness, Hermit stumbled to his feet and hopped out of his bedroom and into the kitchen. Upon entering the kitchen, he was greeted by his lovely mother, Phyllis, and his various younger siblings that were eagerly waiting for some breakfast.

Itan's Pass Migrate Wizard 2015-09-28 4 years 7 months ago

The cool mountain breeze of Itan�s Pass, a high mountain pass west of the small mountain village Kalme, was a sweet relief to the two mercenaries recently stationed in the sweltering heat of the Drearlands to the southeast. Although the weather was comfortable, Trevon and his fellow mercenary Vyne had become bored with their post at Itan�s Pass. An elite mercenary band, the Seeking Swords, had been hired to protect Kalme from invading force of beast-men. Trevon and Vyne had been ordered to Itan�s to be on the lookout for the advancing beast-man war party. The two men had a camp set up on top of a cliff overlooking the mountain pass so they would be able to spot the beast-men from a reasonably safe distance.

Jack's Halloween Migrate Wizard 2015-10-17 4 years 7 months ago

This is an acrostic I wrote, themed upon Halloween. It is something I wrote for last year's Halloween and I thought it'd be appropriate to submit this on the 31st of October.

The poem is about the tale of Jack-O'-Lantern, which merely lasts in our memories as a vague story. A story which once consumed children by fear, now is lost with time. A story that once ruled one's fears, now has lost the struggle to fear as we see children holding Jack-O-Lanterns and screaming Trick or Treat.

In dedication to Halloween, this is my poem about the long lost fear. Feel free to use it, or comment(constructive) on it. I would love to hear what such users as yourself feel and think while reading this, and your experience. Please vote as well, so I could have a reflection of the users' opinion.

Last Days of Arabel Migrate Wizard 2015-09-28 4 years 7 months ago

� �Displace by echelon!� 1st section fall back!�� Screaming and smoke had made my voice hoarse. Instead of a command voice I had a mix of a roar and squeak.� The NCO�s were passing the word and I watched 1st section, what was left of 1st section, fall back.� I turned to follow their progress; they were already throwing furniture out of the tavern and building barricades.� The company 1st Sgt gave me a brief thumbs up from far enough away that I caught only the faintest hint of a smile from his soot-grimed face.

How To Continue Getting Free Content Migrate Wizard 2015-11-11 4 years 7 months ago

Earlier last month, Rome decided to remove her modules, Tales of Celts because she felt that the only people commenting were those who didn't appreciate the work she had put in. Thankfully Steve Savicki saved the day by bringing it to my attention and I was able to get her to change mind and the modules are back. However I need your help so it doesn't happen again. Here are some things you can do to make sure that you can always enjoy free content.

In Baseball They Call it Timely Hitting - Robinson Workshop Aims for the Fences With NWN2 Content Migrate Wizard 2015-11-12 4 years 7 months ago

Every now and then I am going to write an article about my observations as site manager of the Neverwinter Vault. While we have many types of spotlights and entries that are requested by community members, these articles will be based solely by my feelings, observations, and slightly askew perspective. Because of this, take them at face value. Articles about Pale Masters are not slights against clerics or people who love to play them, they are merely articles about Pale Masters. Articles about NWN2 are not slights against NWN1, they are simply NWN2 articles.
