Along the eastern shores of the Great Puddle, however, few if any civilized folk can be found. Beyond the lake to the east are the lands of the 'Mist-Eaters', the dwellers-in-perpetual-fog.


Though little is known about these lands among explorers and cartographers, some of the creatures and beasts have been documented by the many tribes living along the western shores of the Great Puddle over the centuries.

Suffice it to say, Oekkelstagg and a few dozen dwarves managed to survive and make their way back to the main armies where Sturto and Droim were encamped. What was said between the dwarves that day will forever be a mystery lost to time, but the end result was that Sturto and Droim accused Oekkelstag of great cowardice; a humiliating charge for a dwarf. Oekkelstagg considered the insult unforgivable, and out of pride, refused to even defend himself against the charges. In furious rage, Oekkelstagg grabbed Sturto's hand-axe, and began to saw his beard in


-Beardless. Shaved long ago, and now future generations emulate the tradition.

-Dreaded ‘Ghost-Face Killers', painted (or masks) look like zombies.

-Wage into battle under cover of ‘Fogmaker', Horn-Of-The-King-Of-All-Swamps. A lofty title, being that Fogmaker is simply a powerful elemental, dwelling inside of a huge, twisted, warhorn of darkened ivory.

-playin' possum'. Due to their incredible constitution, the dwarves regenerate. They actually allow themselves to be killed, apearring for all intents and purposes deceased...mouths open, lips drawn back, tongues lolling, foul-smelling secretions emanating. Only to rise again, often shocking and disorientating an enemy. Conversely they can also ‘play dead' voluntarily when wounded.

-'The Day The Dwarves Died Twice.'-Ogre Epic (A sad day for the dwarves)

-Oekkelstagg, Dwarven Suthcundman

-Did you know that a Possum has 50 teeth? The most of any land mammal!

-Rum-Fist the Ogre hostage. He is being excruciatingly tortured by the dwarves. He is tied down on his back, flat on the ground with hundreds of incredibly strong and resilient wire-like string, lacing across his legs, torso and neck. If Rum-Fist moves, the wire easily cuts into his flesh. The more he struggles, the more blood flows from razor-sharp cuts and slices in his skin.

-pouches (like possums) strapped always to their chests.

The idea for Strolen Citadel Guilds has been around since the site first began. There have been many thoughts about it and all of them revolved around A LOT of code with the features all, more or less, automated. Well, that won't happen so why fight my impulses.

So any submission that goes in for the next month with a Guild focused freetext will gain extra XP and the knowledge that you are here at the beginning of the Era of the Guilds!
