Gather your hatred about you, and master it, my brothers. It is the strength behind your shield, the speed of your blade. Do not abandon it, for without it, you are empty indeed.

The One Beneath the Waves By: Siren no Orakio
   2 Years, 6 Months, 2 Weeks, 4 Days, 13 Hours, 21 Minutes ago

From time to time, one of the All can be divided from the One and All mind. This is a traumatic event, and it is rare that the severed member of the All survives, let alone becomes a solitary One.

Seeking succor from the desperate silence in its mind, the One Beneath The Waves has sunken himself beneath the oceans of Shamash II, and there it lies, seeking fruitlessly to soothe its injuries.

The Non By: Siren no Orakio

   4 Years, 6 Months, 2 Weeks, 4 Days, 17 Hours, 29 Minutes ago

Silent and invisible, the only herald of the arrival of Kayrun the Disintegrator is the screams of his victims. 

Lifthrasir-1 By: Siren no Orakio
   5 Years, 2 Weeks, 2 Days, 31 Minutes ago

Kararemi'ar'Salm'Torat By: Siren no Orakio
   5 Years, 2 Months, 3 Weeks, 5 Days, 3 Hours, 48 Minutes ago

Even as humans can be, the Kel'Regar, too, can be touched by madness, and it can drive them to push to ends incomprehensible by the sane. The work of one such, Kararemi'ar'Salm'Torat, the Menangerie of Mad Creation, is a twisted, living structure, tormented by years of loneliness and incomprehensible need.

Barkeeper Brelan By: Siren no Orakio
   5 Years, 2 Months, 4 Weeks, 1 Day, 15 Hours, 32 Minutes ago

A wanderer of sorts, Brelan is one of the few Kel’Regar men who have chosen to mix freely with the greater galactic society, having found his calling at last behing the bar.

       By: ephemeralstability

Magical forests are never a good place to sleep, especially seeing as much of the population is nocturnal. Firewood taken from the wrong tree can turn against its collectors, and a strangling onslaught of angry twigs and branches can be surprisingly severe and difficult to disentangle yourself from. Fires themselves attract enemies, and not only malevolent predators. Giant moths and gloomwings are tempted by the heat and light, but are often misunderstood.
