Hewdamia: The Beginning Hewdamia is a game I have been working on for years, more than a decade to be specific. I began designing it out of frustration over D&D carbon copies that flooded the market and generally stunk. So after mulling over a failed novel attempt, I used that background to create what has become Hewdamia today. It has gone through three mechanic systems, four magic systems, and I have lost all saved documentation of it twice off of computers. I had to retype it from a printed manual twice which put me back six months on one attempt alone. The concept behind the system itself is legendary. The original title being Hewdamia: Legends. Your character is striving to become a legend, not a hero. Heros are born everyday. They are usually a local town hero for helping in time of need, but that is all there is. Well, that is where the lives of those characters, adventurers, begin. They are striving to become legends, Immortal in their world. Defininf becomming immortal I mean either immortal in the sence of song and deeds and remembered throughout history and time. And also immortal in the eyes of the Gods. Doing deeds for the gods can get you to your immortal status as well, but that road is long and difficult. Priests are a little different, they don't strive for immortality (good ones don't anyway) but they can gain a Sainthood and possible prefect of the Gods if their faith is diligent enough. I will not go into the history of the world as that has already been posted in my Era of Hewdamia submissions. But, the current struggle that is active when the game begins. There is a shift happening in the eight gods. The two gods Sethalis and Scelaris are plotting to try and rid themselves of their fellow dieties followers. They have begun an invasion of sorts beginning with the coastal waters of the Olwynn Territory and the Kingdom of Cereb. Their corrupted are pushing through civilized lands and burning everything. In the meantime a god though lost during the War of the Gods is presumably resurfasing, or his followers are making it seem like he is. There is also a push by the Demon spys to try and open the Demon Gates to their homeworld and push Hewdamia into a tumult of chaos. Rumors of another God being worshiped in the south being the One True God is also trickling in from caravans and merchants alike. With so many different factions trying to gain control and power there are plenty of hidden agendas and numerous opportunists willing to take the easy path to power.

Two Minerals

       By: Murometz

Yupiorite

Also called "pale-yellow witch" by alchemists, this mineral is known to possess a peculiar attribute. When found, a Yupiorite will appear the palest yellow. Rather than crystalline in structure, Yupiorite occurs in weird, smooth, ovaline shapes, as if already carved by skilled hands to serve as ring or necklace ornaments. Yupiorite somehow detects and reacts to mood. When the wearer of the gem is content, calm, and happy, the stone will remain the palest yellow. As the person gets more excited, angry, or otherwise stimulated, the mineral will darken progressively to a dark corn-yellow in color. Why the gem reacts this way to sentient mood swings, is still debated by gemologists and alchemists alike.

It is said that the Elven Halls of Vala-Aluduwy are resplendent with wall-sized mirrors of pure Yupiorite, showing plainly and ironically, the emotions of everyone present, despite the Elven love of restraint and stoicism.

Aragdulose

"Cave-grass" or "cave-pine" is a deep forest green in color, rare and often mistaken for other minerals, though otherwise mundane. Crystals form into tiny, ultra-thin, needle-like clusters by the hundreds of thousands, creating vast dark green bursts and structures, resembling evergreen conifers, if viewed by any sort of light. Despite its ephemeral shape, Aragdulose is only second to a diamond in hardness.

Dwarves are said to keep these mineral "trees" in their homes, putting them up during festive family holidays, leaving presents beneath them, for kin to open.
