(Brother of the Most Holy Order of St. Senren)

Other Notable Skills: Court Etiquette, Healing, Herbal Lore, History, Horsemanship, Law, Religion

Supernatural Abilities:
Aethelstan has learned to channel the holy power of Andur to heal the wounded; he has also learned to call upon the power of St. Senren, his patron saint, to drive back the undead and other creatures of darkness.

Lesser magic he has acquired include the ability to conjure light in times of darkness (Light), a spell for cleaning items (Prestidigitation), a spell to purify food and drink (Purify Food and Drink), and a spell to summon humble creatures such as mice or rats and command them (Lesser Animal Summoning).

The Justice of Andur, a Footman’s Mace
The Bringer of Order, a Two-Handed Sword (Eaten, but he’ll get a new one eventually)

Don't tell Talia! I think she plans to take over running things, since our fights so far have been rather dicey affairs.

At least, if I lose my mace, I can bludgeon foes over the heads with my iron spikes. They're also my missile weapon, if one is needed! Trade goods if we encounter savages! Paperweights! Writing implements! (Cuneiform, anyone?)

1001 uses, those spikes! Go to Comment

While this is a lovely post, well written and presented, why does the creature of wind and glass still exist? Actually why is it alive at all? The Deitiy's spirit moved the wind and the glass to become a weapon against the Reavers. Wonderful part that. They were avenged in a fitting way. Like that. Why does this thing still exist? It has served its purpose. That is what left me kind of hollow on the submission.

Now, if clerics of this god could summon a glass wind of vengence, that would be interesting. Go to Comment

Interesting view on the language there, Wulf. I always thought of the word Ouzquin a little differently, however: You had much of it similar to my idea though - 'Ouz', i percieved as a prefex meaning 'of glass', for example the word Ouzala would stranslate into "Staff of Glass", roughly (The 'Zala' bieng 'Staff'). The entire word "Ouzquin", however, simply is the word for Glass.
So Ouz is simply a derivative of Ouzquin, used when saying something is of Ouzquin nature, or is made of Ouzquin.
The word Dremorix has several meanings (Shifting, making, altering etc...), and is commonly used when expressing Change - especially in a creation(over destruction) sense. So for example, those who make glass can be referred to as OuzDremorix (makers of glass, or creators of glass).

I am going to make an entire language out of this, you'll see! :)

But enough of that, onto the post!
I can't help but like this: As I said before, it's like fan-art and it's very humbling! :D Go to Comment

For those into such things, the linguistic assumptions that I used for this tale included:

Axtramiya translates to “Axtrami’s”: The suffix –ya indicates a possessive.

Zuno translates as “Spire” or “Spiral”: I derived it from the "Zunouza" dagger, which I decided came from the roots Zuno and –ouza, translating as “Spiral of Glass”

"Ouzquin" would then translate as Ouz-Quin: "Glass" + "holy" or "Sacred"

"Dremorix" would translate as Dre-mor-ix: "Shape" + "Person"
(The suffix -ix or -ex indicates a plural)

"Quilano" translates as Qui(n)-Lano: "Holy" + "Dawn" Go to Comment

I had pictured this being of glass and wind remaining as a guardian spirit of the Ouzquin Dremorix, wandering the wastes until the people’s need called to it. It remained as the guardian of the worshippers' "Ouzala Hemisa" Glass Orbs.


Your mileage may vary, of course. If you prefer a sending that comes only at the most dire need of the priests of Axtrami, there's nothing wrong with that way of doing things. Go to Comment

I think it's very good (even though it is just the "mighty sword" cliche), lots of mystery and cool details, and I like the name.

There's just one thing I would say is a problem, and I didn't detract for it, because it's more of a personal preference- I would say that the name "Senek" (which suggests ancient Egypt) doesn't really fit with the Celtic names, and in addition, I would stray away from using overtly Celtic names (it just seems boring to me to use real Earth languages). But that's just my personal prejudice. Go to Comment
