Honest Wrekk

By:

Masters have come and gone, but Honest Wrekk has always been around.

In the ancient days, during the long-forgotten Golem Wars, a wizard named Ozzdark became impatient of how mechanical and utilitarian golems had become, how mass-produced.

“Golems are an art,” he said, “and I will return the magic to their creation.”

And so, he labored for months upon months, and weeks upon weeks, until he had crafted a body for a fine golem. Crafted of steel and gold, crystal and stone, and finished with strange but beautiful and colorful alchemical jellies and liquids, it was a magnificent construct, a construct worthy of a position at the left hand of an emperor.

“My work is not complete,” he thought then. “For my construct has no soul.”

And so he travelled the Elemental Realms for a suitable elemental spirit. He finally came upon a sensible and durable mineral spirit, crystalline and beautiful in nature. He convinced this mineral elemental to help him, to become part of his golem. And so, the golem was imbued with the sensible, thoughtful, and strong spirit of a mineral spirit, and was thus complete.

But not all things are as immortal as the elements, and on the battlefields of the Golem Wars Ozzdark passed away along with a legion of beautiful Prism Golems led by his construct, whom he had called Wrekk. Wrekk, made to serve, stayed upon the ravaged battlefield for centuries, untouched. Nobody wanted to damage such a beautiful creation.

Some years later, Wrekk, who began to be called Honest because of his animating spirit’s propensity for answering questions, was approached by another master, a master who would eventially die and lead to a series of other masters. Wrekk has seen all sorts and has experienced much. It never has really been surprised. But how could it, for it is just a golem. Or is it?

Magical Properties:

It is a magically animated construct. If asked a question, it’s animating elemental may sometimes answer with a usually honest answer, though sometimes it doesn’t know what the answer is.

Sounds more like an NPC. Not bad, either way.

Hmm... Well, I figured that since it's more of an animated hunk of stuff than a real character, I'd put it in items

BUMP!

This fine NPC could need more detail... and moving into the proper category.

Really, it isn't very good if you really look at it.

I still think it should be under the NPC section,given that it is sentient..

I like the story, and I think it's just sort of meant to be a cute idea/play on words/seed.

I like the description of the Golem, and the allusion to the Golem Wars. However it fell rather flat with the golem itself lacking personality or character. I can see, however, why the Captain was so taken with the Alchemical Exalted.

Its to bad you hate it, it has such a future. The golem wars sounds intriguing to me... Now that would be one hell of a submission. I'll see what I can come up with.

I'm torn on my vote for this one. It shows so much promise and gives such a tantalizing glimpse into a larger setting. I desperately want to know more about the Wrekk, the Golem Wars, all of it. But, there's not much here and likely never will be.

When The Wind Blows

       By: Murometz

One day a a wind begins to blow out of the West. The next day it gets stronger. And stronger still the next few days. Eventually (and fortunately), the speed of the wind tops out at a steady fifty miles an hour, but continues to blow. Soon an entire kingdom is wondering why it's not abating. The weather mages deem it unnatural but can't seem to banish or control it. The priests of various faiths claim it's divine. The End-Of-Days crowd is having a field day with their predictions of doom. No one knows why the gale persists. When inquiring with neighboring kingdoms, it seems they too suffer from a persistent western mistral. Eventually the populace begins to adapt to living with a twenty four hour a day wind. Always from the West, and perpetual. What could be causing this? A raging Elemental king? a curse from the gods? an unearthed artifact? Or has Nature itself gone haywire?
