He pauses at the doorway, uncertainty seeming to come from nowhere.  Ah, warding marks on the door.  Long ignored though, they have weathered to the point they do nothing more but annoy.  Altoth remembers when such half-measures would have been completely ignored. But in those days, the runes were maintained. 

He snarls to himself, grasps the door handle which tingles at his touch, and pulls it open.

A man in half mail sits near the doorway, there to keep the riffraff out.  Althoth flashes a gold coin to the guard - he has money, and passes him a silver to buy his entry.  The guard takes the coin silently, wrinkling his nose at the old man.  Maybe the priest robes clouded his judgement, maybe something else, but he let him pass nonetheless.

Altoth scans the crowd but none stand out. What calls for him?  He moves up to the bar and orders something cheap.  Some for now, some for later.

I haven't touched the site's code for months so not sure what is going on. Not sure I fully understand the issue either. :(

I am hoping it is a glitch that fixes itself with automatic browser upgrades. Seems like a really odd one.

June 2016 progress log and plans ahead:
Epub biz again that will likely drag into July and beyond. Thread will drag into issue 3 for its grande finale (with Maxxx coming on as a collaborator) and then I will be taking a break from the epub to do retro quests. After that I will effectively split off on my own as a writer. Will stay as commenter and proof-reader though.

Glayn leaves his friend now, he could never last cup for cup with Gerhard anyway. On the morrow he will return to Filkhar's bucolic countryside and woo his queen of the vine. Nothing more of note happens to him, dear reader.

As Glayn leaves, Gerhard spends time brooding, as Gerhard is wont to do. Tomorrow he will go to the docks and inspect his ship. And meet once more with the Guild of the Too-Long Name.

The cellmate stirs just then.

 The eight-legged rats are not the worst things Raschil's streets have on offer by night. Depraved hunters prowl the alleys looking for prey. Often they find what they are after.

Altoth hobbled away from the alleyway, the most recent unfortunate barely covered in debris.

He curses his frail frame, curses the soul of the old priest who trapped him in his ancient body. Altoth did not get the pleasure of devouring that one - the priest had prepared his trap well and his soul fled beyond his grasp.

"Let there be one. Just the one. In all the known worlds..." The old man hears the words of Donblas' vile priest again and again, and for the thousandth time. "You will seek and search but my frail form will give out before you find it. And then you will know what it is to die."

This one was so frail that Altoth could scarcely move without some of his infernal power leaking. This end of town supplied many drunkards and cripples for Altoth. Many required little more effort than another bottle of spirit, then a smothering hand.  Some required nothing but to be rolled on their backs, drowning themselves in their excess. 

On thing to be said about this form, though, no one gave him a second look.

The old man exits the alley, fresher than before. He senses something new. A kindred spirit? Not far, just there beneath the creaking sign of an eight-legged rat.

Let us follow as he limps along toward the inn's entrance.

What browser are you using? With Chrome I had no issues.

Corum is cool, have read the first three books ages ago :) Also, we could split the thread into RP and chatter?
Site Help / Can't paragraph, might be dumb

So recently, I have run into a problem in the text editor for submissions. I can type everything fine, but when I finish a paragraph and hit enter, the cursor jumps to the beginning of the paragraph and puts the line break there. The only way I can make more paragraphs is to go into the HTML editor, write a bunch of words making new starts for paragraphs and line breaks, and then turn the HTML editor off.

Is this a site issue, or user issue?

Yep, Erekose too. But I refuse to have a "Jerry" in my dark fantasy game :)
