Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
[IC] Odam: Names of Old (dungeon crawl and tea party)
It has been many years since the reckoning of the black days... and the ages before seem as but a memory to all but the oldest and wisest. That which was lost is being slowly regained, like fields that remember their vitality in the dawn. Words thought forgotten are once again heard... as though it were a dream awakening, whispered by the land itself.
Chapter 1 - Fire
The young elf battered away another torrent of burning books. He shielded his face from the flames, in a full sweat.

Had anyone else made it out? They shielded their eyes and faces from the intense heat.

Laycirra's fingers gripped the fur of her companion tightly as they barreled through the glade. Her eyes teared from the smoke as they rushed onward toward the source of what was most certainly a large fire. But something was odd about the smell. It wasn't the scent of burning trees and brush. She had hoped that her arrival might aid the escape of a few creatures... but if her nose was leading them where she thought it might be... they would find more than just imperiled deer and birds.
