The Nine Abyssal Vales of Kthor


The greatest earth trembler in all of the history of the land of Lishar has revealed the long-lost gates to the Nine Abyssal Vales of Kthor. Are you brave enough try your hand?

Beneathe the crust of the world, the endless tunnels and caverns of the Deep World are almost a complete mystery to surface-dwellers. Within the Deep World, horrors and wonders that cannot be found on or are lost to the surface exist. But the people of the kingdom of Lishar never suspected any of it, until now. On the eve of Smernae, the midsummer’s celebration, the mightiest earth shaker ever recorded by Lishar’s geomancers struck the Water-Rift Mountains, rending a gash in the great hills that the Lisharan capitol of Iboul could fit into. The great rivers and bottomless lakes of the Water-Rift Mountains have begun to pour into the rift, collecting in the shadowy bottom of it and forming the Great Water-Rift Lake. But the new canyon has revealed something that is older than man: A mighty iron gate, carved with grotesque images of demons and fiends and monsters. Rumors tell that it is the entrance to the legendary Nine Abyssal Vales of Kthor. Sealed away for a millenium by St.Iel, the Vales are now open to be explored by adventurers, who have swarmed to Iboul City by the thousands. But within the Vales, horrors await which have not seen the light of day for six thousand years.

-The Vales are gigantic, larger than the largest city you could imagine. There could be all sorts of different things within them, from underground tropical jungles to hideous fields of bones.
-Kthor itself is within the Ninth Vale. Use your own ideas to make your own Kthor, whether it be a city or a god.

Oh yes! Poetic, demonic and horrifying! I love it. It'd be an interesting topic for the forums to discuss exactly what sort of stuff went on behind the iron gate...

A great and colossal door stands to be opened, what lies beyond that first gate? We are curious and take up torches and arms to see what wonders await us in the cthonian darkness. We will gird ourselves for misadventure and mephit vapours, and the darkest fantasies that lie ripening, newly exposed from their rocky wombs.

A well invoked start - would love to see more, but it is an excellent starting point!

It's a bit of a teaser (personally, I will put this up as a Stub but that's just me) but the quality of the write-up is good.

Ringworld-based game , anyone

       By: Kawaresksenjajok

hey im new to this site but was here years ago w/ another name. anyways dont remember so im newbie by default.
Firstly, I am a sci-fi reader and I hope to meet success with my writing.
My favorite series of books are Larry Nivens RINGWORLD tetralogy (Ringworld, RingWorld Engineers, The RingWorld Throne, and RingWorlds Children)
For those that havnt read the ring world is the greatest artificial structere ever discovered.
A ring, its circumference equal to earths orbit, it is built around a sol-like star. Shadow squares halfway betwwn the ring and the sun provide 15 hours of night in a thirty hour day. 70 days equals one falan (one full rotation of ring world. The inner surface-the one exposed to the sun, is terraformed and is one millionkmwide cntrifugal force provides gravity, and rim walls 1000km high keep the atmosphere in. Population of RNH(ringworld native hominids)
estimated in the trillions.
The origins of who built it and why are too sticky to get into. But the ringworld , millions of years ago, was populated bt A race called Pak Protectors. Protectors are ancestors of all homo sapiens. they populated ringworld with homo erectus, but left no predators in the ecology. hence, hominids evolved into every ecological niche. (Vampires, Carrion Eaters, Giant Herbivores, Small Carnivores, some built great technologies and went interstellar. Oh, and ringworld is 300 million times the surface area of earth. post if youre interested, Ill elabortae on native species and alien vistors
