    The Missing God

    Does anyone care to speculate on which deity was the "Missing God"? "In the fortress Lord Kimantor courageously fought his way into the temple of the missing god. He took the clothes and weapons of the missing god and tried them on. They fit perfectly. He got allies and friends, and after great preparations he led them against the enemy. He was called Lord Victory Nightbrother."
  2. I am more than happy to supprt the termminology of Ernalda's Whispers ...the suggestion i made did flow from the Ernalda inititaion document..I admit it may cause offense in modern times but that was not my intent...
  3. so...what would you call the deep female knowledge of the cycle of life-death-life...their ability as creatrix? Far from being sexist or derogatory or somehow "less" than a Star Heart; the term "vibrant womb" is a celebration of their Ernalda earth mother magic.. its a term of acknowledgement of power. If we look at feminist Jungian authors such as Clarissa Pinkola Estes..the embracing of the Life-death-life cucle of the Vibracy of the female creatirix role is paramount, notably in her book Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype.. "Within every woman there is a wild and natural creature, a powerful force, filled with good instincts, passionate creativity, and ageless knowing." The Life/Death/Life cycle moves like this: Think of a circle and at the top, is the Zenith (highest energy), then moving down the righthand side of the circle, imagine stops, like on the face of a clock, each one with a name: Thus: Zenith (at noon) Beginning of entropy (losing a little energy) More entropy Loss of energy/ drying and dying Death into dark Nadir (at 6 o’clock) Then imagine just to the left of Nadir… Spark Of Life In Dark: Conception Incubation Quickening Labor Birth Rising Energy More Rising Energy Zenith (high noon) And again. And again. These are the cycles of all life, all endeavor, all the stars and planets and interests and ideas…all follow this cycle of rising, descending, and rebirth to new energy, fresh life again. So I apolgise if the term "Vibrant Womb" causes offense...and ask what would you call this vitality and vibrancy of innate creation within each woman?
  4. I would suggest something along the line of the following for female PCs.. They seek to awaken the deep feminine of their “Vibrant Womb”—their deep soul that they discovered during their initiation that allows them to know the truth about the rhythms of the Life/Death/Life cycle and understand the ancient secrets of wild nature.

    Dragon Pass cuisine

    Nochet Cuisine The type of fish and the numbers eaten by the residents is only surpassed by the ingenuity of locals when it comes to recipe variations. These culinary creations have more than doubled in recent times (since 1600) with the rise of the so-called Sesh-Tesh cookery, combing unusual ingredients from all along the coast of Genertela in mouth-watering and often spicy dishes. Savory rice pudding is a popular breakfast dish with the cooking water—Congee—allowed to cool before drinking later in the day. Oat porridge is also eaten in vast quantities, sweetened with white clover honey traded from the Bee people of Esrolia. “God-King’s Hair” is especially favored, eaten rolled up in oat pancakes and served with spicy Teshnan dips. Shellfish and meat broth have long been eaten as a main meal of the day, nowadays spiced up to produce a Gumbo. Residents eat lots of sea plants, with sea kale, kelp, and seaweed being regular side dishes, as is a salad of Mirrorweed shoots, which are also eaten boiled and dipped in skullbush oil. Among the more unusual dishes are: Sturgeon eggs on thin oat crackers, dishes of live sand eels, also eaten sugared, and plates of garishly colored, pickled sea cucumbers. Kalomin tea is often drunk cold in the late afternoon, but the most popular beverages are Karkadai, made from the hibiscus plant, and the multitude of Esrolian white and red wines, and the ever popular, if murky, oat beer. On special occasions, the Esvulari families consume Tusoweo—a sea urchin spirit.

    does anyone know you made this map?
  10. I agree that a mix of style in any one off or RPG campaign most often creates more enjoyment. I would reccomend that any narrator, and certainly writers of RPGs read the following: Vogler, C. (2007). Writer's Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers https://www.amazon.co.uk/Writers-Journey-Mythic-Structure/dp/193290736X/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=The+Writers+Journey%3A+Mythic+Structure+for+Writers&qid=1558598672&s=gateway&sr=8-1
  11. This made me smile as that was my thoughts a few years back and I ended up writing a vast amount of text on all merfolk but never got round to the campaign matertials on the undersea war and fire berg, MoM stuff
  12. I agree with and i would also quote Carol Pearson she encapsulates what the quest is and its ramifications.... "The heroic quest is about saying 'yes' to yourself and in so doing, becoming more fully alive and more effective in the world…The quest is replete with dangers and pitfalls, but it offers great rewards: the capacity to be successful in the world, knowledge of the mysteries of the human soul, and the opportunity to find and express your unique gifts in the world".
  13. yep got that too Peter :) , what i am looking to do is detail the places and wonders
