The accepted mode of getting otherwise unobtainable information is to go visit the cranky old hermit living in the mountains. It's just the sensible thing to do. So, naturally, everyone takes their monthly excursion to the hermit's hovel to consult him on everything, from lock-jaw to lovesickness, necromancers to nasal viruses. Now, if everyone's always visiting the poor old hermit, there's going to be an enormous queue... "Wellcome to the Hermitt's Hovele, Please Take Ye a Number and Have Ye a Seate" reads the sign outside the packed dwelling. Imagine the poor hermit, having retreated into the mountains to escape this precise situation... View

Necrosia Animensis By: Wogden
   10 Years, 1 Month, 3 Weeks, 16 Hours, 56 Minutes ago

“Since the vile Plante’s Deceased Hoste is not technically a Part of its Anatomy, any attemptes to Kill the Monster using regular methods is likely to prove Futile, especially that of Beheading the Creature. It seems to regarde its Head as a most Unnecessary part of its Composition, and thus as it moves its Head exhibits a frightening lacke of Expression, and lolls in a way most Unpleasant to observe.”

The Duchampe Society of Respectable Gentlemen By: Wogden
   10 Years, 2 Months, 3 Weeks, 1 Day, 15 Hours, 57 Minutes ago

Operating out of Armudstadt, the notorious city of corruption and deceit and centre of the Kingdom of Dernwich, the Duchampe Society takes its name from its founding father, one Vergrin Duchampe, who lived around the 18th century. Duchampe, an Elvish merchantman - or rather, a leader and “godfather” of a great deal of lower Elvish merchantmen, was notorious for his skill at wagers.

Infiduserum By: Wogden
   10 Years, 3 Months, 3 Weeks, 5 Days, 19 Hours, 36 Minutes ago

Some people are terrible liars. No matter the size of the falsehood, their manner and tone will infallibly expose them as the fraud they are. Malthis of Woodsman’s Dell was one of these people - until his brilliant mind concieved a solution…

Combusting Shrews By: Wogden
   10 Years, 5 Months, 5 Days, 4 Hours, 9 Minutes ago

Long sieges can be a trial for both sides. For the beseiged especially, finite ammunition supplies always pose a problem - except when the ammunition can reproduce…

Tae Nijong, the Grasping Claw By: Wogden
   10 Years, 6 Months, 1 Week, 5 Days, 3 Hours, 18 Minutes ago

Grappling hooks have a tendency to miss their targets, or to simply give way. Now both of these problems are solved at once, with a hook that can think for itself!

The Tale of Taewoo Kin By: Wogden
   10 Years, 6 Months, 1 Week, 5 Days, 3 Hours, 24 Minutes ago

Lying prostrate on the floor, his documents and scrolls strewn beneath him, was Taewoo Kin - clearly dead, with gruesome marks around his neck that suggested strangulation by something of disturbingly inhuman origin…

Coffer Blades By: Wogden
   10 Years, 6 Months, 1 Week, 6 Days, 16 Hours, 38 Minutes ago

Deep within the bowels of the perilous labyrinth, the fearless heroes come upon a grand, ornate chest. Eager for more plunder to line their pockets with, they heave up the lid - to find nothing. A red herring? Maybe not.

Khub Gurmong, the Big Shiny Club By: Wogden
   10 Years, 6 Months, 1 Week, 6 Days, 22 Hours, 52 Minutes ago

It’s no secret that Ogres fight dirty. The slobbering hulks will wield anything they can find in their bloodthirsty rage - which often results in very odd weapons indeed!

Me'fiante Delagouttie're By: Wogden
   10 Years, 6 Months, 2 Weeks, 1 Day, 22 Hours, 18 Minutes ago

Life as a street urchin is a pathetic existence indeed - and Me’fiante has it worse than most. In a back-alley underworld filled with trickery and subversion, the ability to sense lies is often more of a curse than a blessing.

Mother Swamp By: Wogden
   10 Years, 6 Months, 2 Weeks, 2 Days, 17 Hours, 37 Minutes ago

Deep in the heart of the primal Slumbering Woods lies a magic-laden swamp, forgotten in the centuries since the first primitive land creatures crawled from its teeming depths.

Phineas Rowcome By: Wogden
   10 Years, 6 Months, 2 Weeks, 2 Days, 23 Hours, 4 Minutes ago

Nomadic Library

       By: Murometz

Saril had a dream. To open a library in the windswept wastes of Naarish, so that the people of the many villages and towns spread over the hundreds of leagues of desert could discover the joys of his books. For a whole year he kept his library open, but alas, almost no one came.

That is when Saril came up with his new idea. If people didn't travel to read his books, he would travel to them! Saril closed his library, hired a team of twelve camels, loaded up the beasts with all of his books and proceeded to invent the first nomadic library.

Now children and adults alike, looked forward to hearing the bells of Saril's camels as he entered their villages, as he tirelessly traversed the deserts in a long circuitous route, visiting every village and town he came across, in turn. It came to pas that Saril's traveling library came to some fame, and that is how the folk of Naarish became literate.

A word of warning though. Naarish has only six thousand volumes. He deals with those that lose or steal his tomes quite "harshly", by bypassing the town or village which was responsible for losing one of his books for that calendar year.
