  1. ...or the ritual merely said, 'this is not a ship or a boat, move along, move along' in a way the guardians would accept. Sidstepping (and probably eroding) the Closing enough to avoid it. From a forest overlooking the sea J Kyer

    What is canon?

    Well, he could be just wearing that loincloth and the armor is forming around him as he becomes... GUITAR GOD. I'd go with Prog Rock. Have you seen a Captain Beefheart cover? Or listened to Rush? (though I would consider glam rock along the lines of Spinal Tap... er... say... Isn't that mountain range a spine? (Where did I put those those 14" trilithons anyway?)

    Walrus ivory?

    Dear Sir, I appreciate the extremely high-octane nightmare fuel that you have seen fit to post for me to see. Thank you very much. That being said, insect ivory? Sure! Why not? That said, I wonder what the chitin of a big rhino beetle mandible would be useful for. Though I think that's pretty much troll territory and chitin. I am not sure that chin would be useful as a carving material compared to ivory. I am going to have trouble unseeing that picture though. Yours, from a forest by the sea, without holy cripes bugs, J Kyer

    What is canon?

    Either that or Argrath is undergoing apotheosis into a GOD Of PROG ROCK! Which, for my lights, would be completely worth it. Now, where did I put those King Crimson albums? From a forest by the sea and silliness, J Kyer
  5. Really looking forward to this caravan getting on the road. From a forest overlooking the sea, J Kyer

    Walrus ivory?

    And I'm sure there's something along the coasts that can be *cough* harvested. Certainly any of the oh-my-god-so-many monsters along the Wenelian coastlines would suffice. Probably why the islanders at Iron Harpoon got shellacked by the Sea Folks. I always wanted to explore the seas and islands off the coast there but never got the chance. FWIW. Warlus-oids and pseudo-Narwhals are cold-water critters but I am sure there's some sort harvest-able analog in the islands and and waters. Some nice isolated beaches and rocky island breeding colonies. What could possibly go wrong? I mean, you're a
  7. Notes which were eminently useful as background, I might add. You really helped me dial up the 'heck, this place is broken' vibe to where it really needed to be to be. I really haven't looked at the modern version of Maniria/Wenelia but the point was to give plenty of social, political, and above all cultural differences to create conflict which, one hopes, the descendants of the Trader Princes might either mitigate or take advantage of. *addition* That said, I seem to recall Nick always found them to be decadent, decaying and verging on irrelevance (that's a poor choice of words) but I
  8. FWIW, the former was what I intended when I wrote it as a little Easter egg. Issaries headed west on his journey but Castelain headed east. But that was a long time ago and the world has changed greatly since then. And Castlain was never really a thinker. He did the things that needed to be done and hoped for the best. He was, I think, well rewarded for his trust in the world. Again, FWIW, Ashara was something Greg rattled off from the top of his head and then just gave that big old grin of his and went on to the next problem with the manuscript. Wenelia and Manira were sort of the
  9. So much this. Though... "That place will be destroyed in year X unless you *yes, you* do something about it..." works for me. Sorry, just wandered in from the forest after a long walk. J Kyer
  10. Ah, I miss Wenelia. Someday, I think I'd like to go back there. It seems a lot has changed over the years. I have a lot of traveling to do, it seems. J Kyer
