In The Shadow Of Glass


In the monastery, they taught him the words. "A monster seeks darkness. A monk spreads light."

Without a moment of hesitation, he smothered the torch, and in the darkness he could finally see.


"In The Shadow Of Glass" is a story-line beginning with a group of characters freshly trained for the responsibility of going out into the wilderness and spreading the light of civilisation. A group of organisations oversees the training for this duty; characters may be trained by just one organisation in the group, or they may form a party out of multiple organisations.

The primary action within this story-line is found within cave-like dungeons. Delving further into the earth, the characters spread the light of civilisation, searching for any intelligent creatures who might be capable of learning to love civilisation. But any creature who loves the darkness too much is branded a monster, and is promptly slaughtered.

The climax of this story-line is a fight with a deadly Prismatic Dragon, where the characters will learn that some things are meant to remain dark.

Dead Leaves

       By: Murometz

An insidious creature, most likely somehow "related" to trappers and lurkers, the Dead Leaves (for no other name exists as of yet for this foul thing), hibernates for three of the four year's seasons, deep underground. Its active time is Autumn, when trees shed their leaves, depositing colorful carpets across the ground. The terror then emerges and blends in with the surrounding leaves, perfectly camouflaged, waiting patiently for unsuspecting victims. In appearance it resembles nothing more than a ten foot square, six inch thick, layer of bright yellow, orange, and red leaves. The only hint that someone is walking on top of it, comes in the form of an unusual amplified sound of leaves crunching underfoot. Too late usually, the victims notice this additional "crunch". The Dead Leaves will then swirl and "rise" up to smother and suffocate the victim, like a colorful, malevolent, boa constrictor.

Fire, as can be imagined, is particularly effective against this creature, but one has to *know* it's there before putting it to the torch. And there's the rub. The creature is impossible to "identify" in a large patch of fallen leaves by eyesight alone.
