Ryder Honor Code By: MoonHunter

'If you are going to live in the Warren, you need to live by The Rules,' The Edge said.

'I can follow the Ward Rules as good as anyone,' the Green Ryder said.

Low Sorcery By: Scrasamax

Scrasamax's Guide to Orcs By: Scrasamax

Recently unearthed this gem of mine, and thought to post it. Its writing predates my joining of Strolen, and I found quite a few interesting bits in it. It is nearly completely written and I am going to endeavor to finish writing it out. Until then, I plan to post it here, perhaps a section a day or so. Enjoy, expand, criticism, comment.

The arrival of the newer Gods marked a turning point in the world as well as the Gods. The arrival marked the beginning of a war that wouldn’t see the first blow for centuries.
