I see that as with my other submission, this is too short for the tastes of this site's members.

I will see what I can do, perhaps you would like to help me expand it? Go to Comment

Thank you for the welcome, and the help so far MysticMoon.

I can try deviding it into sections, each with their own title. An extra section with some regulars would definitely give the place some more colour. With some research into old inns/buildings I think I could give a better description of the place.

If I get around to updating this, I will let you know. Go to Comment

I have been gaming for almost a year now.

I remember playing an online RPG. (one of those MMORPGs) at my library on a weekend. When I was leaving the building after getting some books I walked past a group of people roughly my own age sat at one of thee larger tables towards the back of the library, an area generally used by students to study.

They where talking quietly, rolling dice, one of them had a bunch of notes, and it looked interesting. So I asked if they would mind me sitting there; they didn't and so I joined them.

I attended for a few of their sesions before I was asked if I wanted to join in. They said not to worry about rules and the like, that it would all come with time, and indeed it has.

Although I mainly consider myself a writer, I do enjoy our weekly gaming sessions.

Roleplaying has also been an influence on how I think when I write. Go to Comment

I like the theme of this submission. It is interesting to find out how people found their way into this wonderful world.

The link to the forum thread doesn't seem to be working though. Is there another way I can find it? It is a shame that not many people have added their stories here. Go to Comment

A nice take on the flying inn/merchant concept.

This one also reminds me of a Stargate episode, where the team is inside an inn, invisible to the eyes outside.. Go to Comment

Real history has always played a part in my campaigns. There is so much that can be used as a source of inspiration.

Once or twice I have also tried re-enacting a few historical battles and intrigues, with some success. Though my players prefer fantasy. Go to Comment

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.
