Guild of Anawaith

By:

An organization whos guild hall has been around more more then 1500 years. Here is where Rangers skills are tested to their limits…

The Guild’s history is a very extensive one: set down exactly 1721 years ago by the fighter Anawaith, Anawaith chagned to the Ranger Ways and encouraged people from the village of Elimirth(now a city) to join. Desperate for work and to protect them from the beasts of the forest, many joined. Under the training of Anawaith, they became effective rangers, clearing the land for expansion. As the fame of the Anawaith’s rangers continued to expand after Anawaith’s death, so did the size of the village, as more and more people came. World affairs affected them soon. The Anawaith rangers were sent off to war to represent the city of Elimirth, to the Wood Elf Realm to fight the ever dangerous Dwarves, and other places. They were great with the sword, but even greater with the composite long bow. As the first wars ended, the Rangers continued to watch the vast forests and be called on duty in distant lands. As the years passed, The Anawaith rangers fame faded, but are still popular in the city Elimirth, where they are counted as a special soldier rank, because of their strict rules and honour.

The guild home itself is a spreawling mansion on the edge of the city. Actually it is the ‘old part’ of the city. Here many people come and go for advice. It stands four stories high, sprawls over two acres, and is beautifully made with oak and pine. It houses places for the rangers to live, places for guests , the great hall, and the never talked about dungeons (for prisoners under question)

The Guild holds sway in poloticial power with the Elder as the High Counciler who is the leader of the council which rules the city. Some resent this power, but they use it wisely and have increaed the wealth and power of the city of Elimirth, enough to be noticed by all of the Wood Elf Realm to be counted as a stronhold other then the capital, Masinaranda.

Right now it sends its rangers on to fight in another war with the dwarves and to other places to explore new land found. The rangers do this without resent and now it is their duty to protect their home and the race of Elves.

The Anawaith Rangers over the years have developed a secret language in which they use in writing letters and speaking in battle. The Anawaith Battle Tongue is a combination of Sylvan and some form of an ancient language, the name of it went to the grave with Anawaith himself who was known at that time to explore far north where he lived with the barbarians for time to time.

It is hard to follow, but not a bad "generic D&D" organization. It adds a bit of color to the Ranger Class.

An ok sub. I can forgive the DNDishness as rangers really do predate D&D. The spelling and grammer problems earned it a -.5 from me though.

I think it is a diamond in the rough. I like the core idea and do wish there was more. I would definitely enjoy reading more about this guild and what they have done in the world. The age alone would make them almost a mystical society that would have much aura around it.

Cold Comfort

       By: Murometz

Cold Comfort is a long-sword of star-steel, its blade giving off a wan, blueish light. Its grip is wrapped tightly in snow-serpent hide, and its pommel bears a single opalescent gemstone.

This blade is enchanted in such a way, that whoever wields it, begins to fall completely and irrevocably "in love" with the weapon. This love does not manifest itself as the expected reverence and bond formed between any warrior and his weapon, but as a deeper, truer love, one has for a soul-mate of the same species! The longer the wielder carries Cold Comfort the stronger and more disturbing this love becomes, and only the most powerful of magicks can potentially break the sword's insidious spell. The blade's owner will even speak to and coo to the weapon, convinced that the sword understands and returns this epic love.

If the blade's wielder somehow loses the weapon or has it taken away, they will become inconsolable, and will predictably go to "ends of the earth and back" to retrieve it at any cost. Such is the weapon's curse that even separation from it does not damper the feelings the owner has for the sword. Legends tell of several distraught and mind-addled knights who even years after losing the blade, still wander the country-side searching for their lost love. And woe be to the "new lover" if and when they find him or her.
