Soulstone By: Taxus
   12 Years, 4 Months, 1 Week, 3 Days, 14 Hours, 7 Minutes ago

10 perfectly sphere-like stones containing ancient spells of much power and much use to those with wits, courage and intelligence.

Blackrose By: Taxus
   12 Years, 4 Months, 1 Week, 5 Days, 13 Hours, 40 Minutes ago

Just an ordinary woman in a small village, suddenly taken away from her home to a long, long journey… Sounds like something that everyone hopes for himself, something else, something… well, adventurous, doesn’t everyone want something like that?

...She doesn’t.

Ferian Fortholén By: Taxus
   13 Years, 3 Months, 3 Weeks, 4 Days, 22 Hours, 52 Minutes ago

A man with a thorn tattooed on his cheek, maybe a slight smile on his lips and a strange look in his eyes should never be trusted… If they still do this, they have probably met Ferian, a man with a thorn tattooed on his cheek and almost always a little twinkle in his eyes. He is very polite, you can’t blame him for being rude. He just… Well if it suits him better, he will just eliminate all the problems in his way.

Dreamdweller By: Taxus
   13 Years, 3 Months, 4 Weeks, 21 Hours, 26 Minutes ago

This sword has had many names. Dreamdweller is just one of them. It has also been called “The Moon’s reflection”, “Soul’s guide” and many others… The sword dwells it’s power from the character, from his essence, his dreams and thoughts…

The gems of Madvar By: Taxus
   13 Years, 3 Months, 4 Weeks, 1 Day, 18 Hours, 42 Minutes ago

The empire of Madvar is ruled by a man who is slowly slipping into insanity. And now the gems of Madvar have been stolen.

Pearl Spider Economics

       By: Murometz

These rare, fist-sized spiders do not make webs, but rather excrete secretions which harden upon contact with air. These "droppings" resemble barley-sized spider eggs, or even lustrous pearls, once the slime coating them, dries up. In fact, dried Pearl Spider "drops" are indistinguishable from the marine varieties produced by mollusks, and hence of identical value on the open market!

Several centuries ago, they were studied by naturalists, and several observations were made. Firstly, was that these spiders "lay" these pearls for no apparent or discernible "natural" reason, and secondly, the naturalists had discovered that the more these spiders ate or were fed--and they were true omnivores--the larger the spider pearls came out.

A cottage industry began. Enterprising merchants hunted and collected these creatures across the lands, erecting spider-farms for the manufacture of Spider Pearls. It wasn't long before someone got the idea to force-feed the spiders, ala foie gras geese, and soon, the fattened spiders began pooping out pearls of great size! (relatively speaking). The regular pearl market came to disarray, and prices and value fluctuated wildly.
