Well, at least it doesn't glow an eldritch shade of blue. I'm asuming that Tluin is unaging, because you start in one Date system and then skip it's logical counterpart into another system entirely. Just briefly, what are the Knights of the Red Blades? Who is Eldearth?
Plot Hook: PC's gain possession of the sword, but find that the prior owner isn't quite as dead as previously thought, and he'd kill to get his sword back. Go to Comment
I love it in it's depressed withdrawal of most any sensory input.
And quotes from Thief: The Dark Project
"...And the manfools piled rock on rocks and raised a treesie roof, hammers saws tear the skin of goodsie wood... ...and laughs at the Woodsie Lord. ...And when learns the Lord of this, He sends His beastesses to the manfools... ...who attacks and hammers saws their useless fleshes, and build him a house of they rotting skins."
-Unattributed Trickster song
"Builds your roofs of dead wood. Builds your walls of dead stone. Builds your dreams of dead thoughts. Comes crying laughing singing back to life, takes what you steal, and pulls the skins from your dead bones shrieking."
-Clay tablet in an abandoned Trickster temple
"He am the leaf that feeders on the fleshed ones. Thems that calls themselves Builders and wielded up a hammers against him!"
-Viktoria, servent to the Trickster
"My poor Mister Garrett, you will not live to SEE the sprawling glory of it! Your sacrifice is not yet complete! Mine lilacs and mine thistles must feeds, and I? Stands He then in the greens and festered Maw and speeds He out his judgements upon the weeps and writhing manfools!"

Do trolls count as demi-human? Because that'd be scary. It regenerates it's lost blood just as fast as the rose drinks, it's covered in thorns and enjoys slaughtering little meaty things.
And as far as their warriors go, I doubt that every one of them would do it. You'd have some of your elite ue this, and if the enemies were scarce for a while, in addition to everyone in the village donating a cup of blood, you might sacrifice the old man, or the terminably ill guy. I really like it, of course that might just be 'cause of my sorking on a new, more primitive, setting. Go to Comment
As has been said it's a good post, if a bit plain. I however have absolutely no problems with the names, but as CP has pointed out before, I either pirate or modify names/places that I see/read, where as he goes out and makes entirely new ones. Go to Comment
Asclepius' flies are similar in size to the ordinary housefly, but they are white, with crimson eyes (ugly little creatures). Unlike most flies, however, they are not diseased, in fact their remarkable immune system contains agents which tackle even human illnesses. This is the source of their white colouring also. The standard technique for capturing them, to use their juices, is to tempt one onto the palm of one's hand and then to quickly wring your palms, then rub the mush onto the afflicted area. This is not for the squeamish, but has definite healing possibilities.
