Thank you Manfred. The stories of Quetzalcoatl as a benevolent god, and his past and future reign of peace are hard to find. Most of the information we have is post conquest and written by the conquerers. Unless you look at the older myths and pre-conquest texts it is easy to miss. Go to Comment

They are as connected as night and day. This started out as something for Muro's scroll (but I didn't know Muro wanted short blurbs when I wrote them). I will be glad to add a hook or two and to expand on the connection and duality of the two characters. Any other information people are interested in?

These are my first subs, so please comment freely. Go to Comment

Thank you Manfred!
I am working on the setting at the moment. That will have more information on culture.

I think an "article" may be a bit much but I am happy to answer any questions. :) Go to Comment

PERSEPHONE'S BANE

Lovers have often shared a cup of this sweet-tart pomegranate mead in the hope of benefitting from its unique properties. Many have found only sadness in their cup. When shared by two people who are truly in love Persephone's Bane ensures that they will be bound together for all time. If they should attempt to part, or circumstance should seek to devide them, they will inevitably be drawn back to each other. Should one lover be false, it will set them on a quest to regain their real true love at any cost. The true lover who is left behind will seek to reclaim his love with the same fervor. Even death can not break the bond. Go to Comment

I would say Absolutely make an NPC sub for him.
It seems that he is a rather significant antagonist in Scarabomantus' life. Go to Comment

Wet Faeries

       By: Murometz

Sages and naturalists frown at the common name given to these strange creatures by the small folk, but sometimes the silliest nicknames for creatures, places and people persevere in the minds of many. “Purifiers”, “Pond Jellies”, “Breath-Stealers”, “Lung-Ticklers” and “River Butterflies” are much less commonly heard appellations for these life forms. Wet Faeries are basically (and simply) a species of fist-sized, fresh-water jellyfish. Several traits steer them toward the peculiar category however. Firstly, Wet Faeries are nearly invisible in the water, much like their marine cousins but even more so. One can swim in a river swarming with these critters and not even notice their presence. Secondly, they possess the unique ability to clean and purify whatever body of water they inhabit. They do this via some sort of biological filtration process, sucking in all toxins present in the water, and releasing it back in its purest form. Needless to say, they are both a blessing and a curse to whichever folk dwell beside the rivers and lakes Wet Faeries inhabit. On one hand, no purer water can be found anywhere than a Wet Faerie lake or pond, and yet, in “pure” water “life” tends in fact to die out, lacking the needed nutrients to prosper. Thirdly, their “sting” is (unfortunately) virulently poisonous to all mammalians. Wet Faeries are loathe to sting anyone or anything, using their barbed fronds as a last line of defense, but if stung, most swimmers will suffer respiratory arrest, and die within minutes, usually drowning before they can make it back to shore.

Alchemists, druids, and less savory characters have studied these creatures over the years, and have predictably found all the ways Wet Faeries could be exploited. Morbidly humorous, some bards find it, that the Poisoners and Assassins Guilds as well as the Healer’s Union, all prize these creatures. The assassins use the extracted venom in obvious fashion, while the priests and healers use the still-living jelly-fish to sterilize other poison potions and to cure those already poisoned on death’s door.

It is known that a certain Earl Von Trumble keeps his vast castle moat stocked with Wet Faeries, the waters so clear that every bone of every one of his past enemies can be clearly seen on the bottom, twenty two feet below.
