Reasons for Joining the Citadel: 1. An avid fan of fantasy and RPG on PCs *as in personal computers (as opposed to the socially interactive ones like most do here) so strictly speaking, I'm a non-gamer although recently I got in a forum game using the FATE system; 2. A dream of writing a fantasy epic one day + now I'm actually doing it so the Citadel is where I keep in practice. Generally I'm working to make one of my two settings into Regions here on the Citadel and otherwise just writing any random ideas that pop into my head.

My Settings: 1. Dragon Empire- fantasy version of feudal China and the associated world; 2. Kalimon- high magic fantasy setting

Current Plans:

The novel I was trying my hand at, the first of a 5-book series, is now on stall. Ctiadel-wise, I have all sorts of ideas floating around. My priority should really be the Strolenati Level 2 Quest, the Spouse Challenge and then the write up two more broad sketches on the World of Kalimon so that it can released as a map challenge (roughly in that order but I always change things around as the mood fits me). I've recently earned the Master Questor badge. However, I will keep to the schedule of 1 retro quest per month on average until I have I have participated in all past quests except for the 2 Sci-fi ones. Current priorities are a short story based on my stalled novel to go towards the Citadel's commercial epub and the Strolenati 5in1 sub. As for the ordering, I'm going where my whims take me but it's between those two so I won't be wandering far. 

Plans Ahead:

Incoming work- A language only known among women (based on snippets of a Chinese documentary caught on TV)

Outgoing work- Short story based on the Return of the White Deer; 5in1 sub for Strolenati Level 2 Quest; Legendary Horses of the Chinese Lore- Weapons, Myths and Others codex

In the Nebulous- Tale of the Dragon and the Phoenix (mythical tale set in my Dragon Empire setting); The Everwinter Realm- a reasonably sized area composed of sub-locales based on different characteristics of Winter and too many more for me to list

Clean-out Folder-  Spouse Challenges (x2); Kalimon subs: Magic System in Kalimon; History of Kalimon; Dragon Empire subs: The First and Their Descendants; A Treatise on Deities Worshiped in the Dragon Empire; Geography and Racial Dynamics of Zia; Chinese Mythical Lifeforms (Good and Bad Omen Lifeforms)

Upcoming Collaborations: 30 Craftsmen (to be released as Wiki)

Stalled work- Return of the White Deer (novel that I was writing); Ranking for Government Officials in the Qing Dynasty; 101 Distinguishing Features of a Culture (with Illustrative Examples)

Work seeking collaboration: Wikis- 6270, 7337, 7363;

5685 and its component scrolls! It was supposed to be Citadel effort though currently it's just me as sole author. If someone would like to contribute, PM me or start a scroll on any random one that you see fit and I will turn them into Wikis as they should be.

Cold Comfort

       By: Murometz

Cold Comfort is a long-sword of star-steel, its blade giving off a wan, blueish light. Its grip is wrapped tightly in snow-serpent hide, and its pommel bears a single opalescent gemstone.

This blade is enchanted in such a way, that whoever wields it, begins to fall completely and irrevocably "in love" with the weapon. This love does not manifest itself as the expected reverence and bond formed between any warrior and his weapon, but as a deeper, truer love, one has for a soul-mate of the same species! The longer the wielder carries Cold Comfort the stronger and more disturbing this love becomes, and only the most powerful of magicks can potentially break the sword's insidious spell. The blade's owner will even speak to and coo to the weapon, convinced that the sword understands and returns this epic love.

If the blade's wielder somehow loses the weapon or has it taken away, they will become inconsolable, and will predictably go to "ends of the earth and back" to retrieve it at any cost. Such is the weapon's curse that even separation from it does not damper the feelings the owner has for the sword. Legends tell of several distraught and mind-addled knights who even years after losing the blade, still wander the country-side searching for their lost love. And woe be to the "new lover" if and when they find him or her.
