The Dolman Copy- a copy of the Malachrite Falcon


There are dozens of copies of the Malachrite Falcon, most of which are decoys or mcguffins for a variety of cons and scams. Some of these Falcons are somewhat famous in their own rights, as they will have colorful histories.

The Dolman (named for the city of its origin) has such a colorful history of its own. It was used by a local Evil Cult as bait to draw out any other occult groups in their area. They dropped rumors and left clues to tantilize the occult orriented. They created an elaborate mini-temple that was trapped to capture adventurous or greedy souls. The trap was successfully sprung a number of times. Those poor fools were then sacrificed to the Dark God. Some of the energy was syphoned off into the Dolman Falcon to enhance its "mystical" qualities AND to be used for later magics.

After a few decades of the trap working, the Dolman Falcon developed a great deal of mystic energy power. It developed into more than a mere battery. It became an actual generator of magical energies, increasing the amount of magic around the item.

Eventually, someone escaped with the prize. While they were disappointed that it did not hold the KNOWLEDGE OF THE AGES, but a mystical energy generator is still worth having. The owner was short lived, as others wanted the Dolman Falcon for themselves. Many think it is the Malachite Falcon. Others know it is a copy, but covet it for its supposed magical powers. The cult continues to dog the owner of the Dolman to regain the item.

Even in the tomb hunting and occult circles, The Dolman is currently lost to history. Every now and again rumors of it resurface, and people scramble in that direction.

Ah a nice take on an old favorite. The Maltese Falcon if I am not mistaken. A decent version. I will need ot view the real Malachrite Falson to see if it holds up to par with the fake version. Well done Moon.

I'll throw a paw up there for you.

The Land of Mad Children

       By: Spark

In the far reaches of a long-lost wilderness, there stands a forgotten town inhabited only by children. Though they appear normal enough, their eyes burn with madness, and they speak in a foreign, archaic tongue. Nearly a millenia ago, a powerful spell had gone awry, or maybe it had succeeded - in any case, it ended up blessing, or cursing, an entire generation of children with agelessness. However, as the centuries passed, the children's parents grew old and died, the buildings of the town crumbled to earth, and even the civilization itself faded into history, becoming lost to time. All that remained were the children, driven mad by the psychological toll of living for hundreds of years beyond their age. In time, most children died, killed off by fighting amongst themselves, while many others were driven to suicide. Only a small handful remain, and they are a strange people indeed.
