I love these -- it's such a unique idea. Is there anything to prevent a person from using as many charms as they want (besides the Magebane Charm, that is)? And are they very expensive to obtain or create? How are they made? Are they regulated in any way?
Nice. You should make a whole codex of these! Crawling Mountains?! Must know more! Makes me wonder if they actually have crawling mountains, or if this is an embellished, re-interpretation written by someone who has never seen or met one of these desert dwarves. So again, i get that medieval (clueless but evocative) guide to the world's hidden corners vibe. Go to Comment
I'm picturing huge, gray-brown, nomadic tents that look "rocky", embellished a thousand-fold by some Marco Polo type, who never quite made it to this part of the Burning Lands, but was close, and wrote down legends he heard, from those that have seen the "crawling mountains". :) Go to Comment

I don't post for feedback or stars, I've got a few subs with nothing on them, voted or comments. I post to organize my thoughts, I post so I can sleep. These are things I exorcise from my mind, so that I can have quiet. Go to Comment
A very excellent question. I have rubber totes and boxes full of spiral notebooks full of my writing. It's junk, moldering in a damp basement, or lost when the storage building holding it floods. Hard drives fail and about the only thing I hate more than constantly backing up a hard drive is blogging. I'm a writer, not a blogger. Blogging is like graffiti with better spelling and punctuation.
But you directed me to some hypocrisy of my own. I care much more about the discourse and conversation generated by what I write. The votes are nice but I like the comments. I like when someone springboards off my idea, when they find something useful or inspiring.
But lacking the citadel or a computer, I'm the caveman painting on the wall. Go to Comment
This is a bit different. I like it because it reminds me of those bizarre, medieval guides on the exotic creatures and inhabitants of the world's unknown corners. Like the dog-headed people, or the folk with heads in their torsos, bees being born in ox carcasses, antelopes identified as unicorns, and all that. The drinking their own urine part did it.
