I liked this article and to be honest the game master must be the guiding force in the game. In my eyes the game only really comes to fruition when each person truly plays the character that he has picked. I seem to recall someone wanting to be a psionic orc or some mess like that and you put that junk down quick. My only wish is that you and the other gamers were closer so, Tarik could do his thing one more time. Where are those damn glasses and what is that de-testable muid (part mage/part druid) up to?

On some of the islands off the coast, the rites of the local fertility god revolve around ceremonial death and rebirth. The religion's priests have overcome this cycle, however: Each of them is actually undead, ceremonially slain and "reborn"! Their religion is otherwise unremarkable, being an odd offshoot of the mainland's religions. The priests vow to resist their undead cravings, seeing these as the "cycle of life" attempting to reclaim their spirits.
