Its a small critique, but I was reading the Moravar entry and you make two references to foxes in subsequent sentences.

"...His eyes are dark, his features narrow and fox-like. He is as silent as the hare and as cunning as the fox."

I like the image you are trying to paint, but this made me stop for a second and kind of muddied the water for me. Maybe try using other animals to compare him to?

For what it is worth, I don't think of a fox as a hunter but more of something that is hunted. You might get the same imagery by comparing his features to a wolf or even an ocelot/leopard.

Updated: It was late when I posted this and could have sworn I flagged it as In Work (viewable), but I guess I did not. Regardless, thanks for the comments, some more useful than others.
I added a description and a bit more information on how they work/made. I tossed a little tease in there about the Desecrator, which will actually tie into some of my other subs once I get his write-up done. Go to Comment

Silverwood Fighting Knife
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Combat)
Railus's comment on 2007-10-08 10:07 PM
I guess I was not clear enough in the description. This is not a magical item, this is simply a racial weapon of the elves in my gaming world. The shape of it, almost a "c" shape is what makes it awkward so special training is required to use it effectively. When used in pairs and in combination with the fighting style of the Silverwood Elves, they become rather potent weapons, increasing their damage and chance of hitting a vital area.

So far I have been posting things about a gaming world that is mostly in my head, I guess I need to post more about the world before introducing aspects of it. I will see what I can do about this. Go to Comment

Railus's comment on 2007-10-09 02:26 AM
No where does it say that only elves can use it. It says that to properly use it, you need specialized training. Its a racial weapon not commonly used outside of the Silverwood and awkward to wield. Go to Comment

I was under the assumption people were not voting yet until I posted the write-up on the Elves of Silverwood. Maybe it was not as clear as I thought it was. Either way, its your opinion. Go to Comment

I will be posting a write-up on Seffa that actually answers most of your questions (hopefully it will be up tonight). Fully grown the stand between 6 and 7 feet tall. In token form they are 3 inches. The command word was written in texts carved into walls of the temple itself.

The code was deciphered by a clever mage familiar with spells pertaining to comprehending languages. He was curious when he purchased one of the tokens from a traveler who thought it was useless. (It is a fairly simple command word, "anima." Go to Comment

I make an attempt to portray the fact that they are unique in the history. This one is particular was made by a single person as a result of a specific event. The rings I have previously posted contain a similar descriptor in their respective histories. I am posting ideas so that they can be used by other people, possibly altered to fit their game better, not because I intend on changing my ideas.

I do admit to being caught in the moment, I probably will post more at some point. Go to Comment

The ring carries the curse, so if the finger it becomes attached to is severed, then the curse has no hold over the person. It is a simple way around the curse, but why should things be difficult? Losing a finger is a constant reminder of what could have happened, because someone was foolish enough to blindly put on a ring. Go to Comment

Railus's comment on 2007-10-08 03:04 PM
It has the look of an engagement ring, for obvious reasons. The curse being easy to break is intentional. His feelings blinded his desire for vengeance. If Cyul had shown even the most remote twinge of feelings for Railus in the end, he would have spared her the fate of his other apprentices, all he wanted was for who ever wore the ring to be able to admit their feelings to be rid of the curse.

The Dust of Ages

       By: Wulfhere

The ancient Empire of the Golden Crystal fell so long ago that little is known of them besides their legendary magical power. Supposedly, in the Golden Age of the Crystal Empire, cities were filled with enchantment, spells far beyong the ability of modern magi.

A tomb robber has returned to civilization with something never seen before: Ceramic vials of reddish dust that supposedly enhance a magician's power tremendously when the dust is sprinkled upon the floor of his workroom. The rogue selling the vials claims that they were recovered from a ruin of the Crystal Empire, but can he be believed?
