Klah

By:

Klah has become a fantasy/ science fiction trope - a rule or guideline that people follow. However many do not know what it is.

Klah, a coffee-esk drink in most fantasy works. Originally found in the books of Pern (a hot, stimulating drink made from tree bark and tasting faintly of cinnamon." - The Dragonriders of Pern). There is a entry about it in the A Dash of Salt Sub.

The name and basic drink has been adapted by many authors, both science fiction and fantasy. It has become something of an in-joke among the writers. Klah is always a hot beverage, most often with a coffee-esk taste with some other enhancement. Most often it is a chocolate taste, but other essences are sometimes used.

It is frequently used in an Arth Submission http://www.strolen.com/view.php?node=free_search&free=Arth

The original is here, but on Arth…

To an Earthworlder, this drink has a coffee chocolate taste. It provides a caffine buzz (and since it is often served with honey… a sugar buzz as well). It is normally served in ceramic mugs. This product is mostly the product of Amarian Farmers (who strangely enough do not drink Klah, just eat Klah candies and baked goods). Mostly this is the City Drink of Antioch, but has been found in MaskLand (who have gone insane over the drink), and various parts of SecondLand.

Klah berry bushes are a finicky plant to grown. The small berries (1.1cm) and (huge) pits (1 cm) are crushed into a soft paste. The oils are saved for other confectionary applications. The paste, once dried, is then ground to a fine powder and kept in air tight tins or waxcloth bags.

This powder can be added straight to hot water (though in honesty, it is usually with a touch of honey or beet sugar), or hot milk (with honey mostly for children) or a mix of hot water and milk (usually with honey/ sugar and other spice). A person’s preference for Klah can be an unique as their fingerprints.

While Klah can be made at home, most people get it from a favorite "cart" or foodshop.

the dead mechent of death

       By: celticring

To Dougles Nye money is power, a powerful wizard only newly into lich-hood

Originally the son of servants to a noble family, yet he found that life humiliating. "How could anyone stand to serve another?" he often wondered. His father, was a greedy man who offered an explanation one day “It’s all for the coin, every demanding, humiliating thing. It’s for the coin, boy."

So when Dougles began developing the potential for magic, he found a way out of a life of servitude. Learning magic though stolen books, he made his escape. Taking the all the possessions of the lord’s vaults with him. He set out to gain as much money as possible.

His gifts for magic allowed him many advantages other merchants could only dream of. Capitalized on the use of deviation magic, allowing him to always having what the city he is in needs most, whether that is wheat or weapons, poison or drug doesn’t matter to him.

Some would say he follows war, disease, famine, and political strife like a vulture looking for a nice carcass to claim. What they don’t know is he has a hand in the conflict he supposedly follows. Assassinating ruler to incite wars, casting spells that decimating crops, acting as an information broker to both sides in a conflict. Dougles is known as a man who can get what you need to some, to other a monster who capitalizes on the suffering of others.

The lich know as Dougles Nye, prefers the title ”The Merchant of Death” for that shows just how much power money has earned him.
