Hey Oerath. I figured that since you are so very kind as to spend your time on my humble RPG, I should repay your kindness in any way I can. I shall begin by indulging in you writer's thread. I truly love the idea.



 



It began back in the dawn of time. Elves and Dwarves had been at war for nearly a century, the reason behind the feud long forgotten. Ginglin Hiklin, the Elvish king had a beautiful daughter named Marianya. Marianya was the most fair of all her people, her long brown hair and eyes captivating to all who saw her. So it was that one day, as she travelled through the forests near her home, she was ambushed by Dwarves. The band sought to capture her and use her as a bargaining chip to end the war but N'Tartan Jeggen, the son of the Dwarf king Hoggok, fell deeply in love with her. He released her and sent word to King Ginglin requesting a truce. Ginglin, unaware of N'Tartan's feelings for his daughter, agreed without question. The two met and N'Tartan begged Ginglin permission to wed his daughter. Ginglin was shocked and hastily said no. N'Tartan offered Ginglin whatever he desired for the hand of his daughter. The Elven king pondered this and told N'Tartan that he desired nothing more than a white Stagg from the northern Reaches. N'Tartan, crestfallen, agreed. He knew he would very likely meet his death on the journey but he also knew that Marianya was worth the risk. Without telling even his father, N'Tartan set out on his quest to capture a white Stagg.

First of all, I am glad that I can participate in your thread. It feels good already.



By the way, good start. I already read the one that you had in journals. Quite a blast to begin a tale. A woman, a quest, a way to prove things. Reminds me of King Thingol's task to Beren.



I hope you like of my character. In fact, Saegron Ithael used to be one of Oerath's many names/identities, but I decided to create a completely new and fresh character for him. (Yup, Oerath Windsoul is also one of my original characters.)



I can't promise constant participating, but I'll try to throw in something as often as I can. One of my new year's promises will be to get more active as a writer. :)



I've a story that I will bring forth in this thread. Darbeian is the working title and it's a sci-fi/fantasy story with a bit of military stuff mixed in. (Mostly at the start of the story.)



Edit: I've lots of stuff to do during the next few days, but I'll still try to post my things, before the weekend.



Patience is virtue and time is just time.



Thank you!

N'Tartan stared out into the lonely forest he had come to call home. He smelled the scent of birds and distant streams. A haze of mist coated the land as he walked along, his double edged sword slapping his side softly.



He was situated in the Vercanian Forest, an untamed region near the far edge of any map. He stooped and saw a large track, a cloven hoof patern, leading on into the brush ahead. The track was about a day old. His quarry was close.

Good story so far, Durin. :)



I must apologize for my absence. At the moment, I'm spending some holidays in northern Finland, so that's why I've been off the site.



I think that I'll just let this year go and let the new year come and post my things then.



For now, I've planned to write some kind of poem, celebrating the new year and I'll post it by tomorrow night.



So, until the next time.



- Oerath.

And here comes the reboot of The Wanderer's Tavern. The thread fell down too quickly and was left in a complete silence.



But I am here to put an end to that silence.



So, let's go through the rules once more and keep it simple this time around..



 



The Wanderer's Tavern is a place, where you can post your 'campfire' tales. So write a tale, post it, throw in some role-playing elements if you want and let us feast on your text. I'll be giving guaranteed feedback to each and every post and their respective owners.



 



And here are our humble rules:



 



1. Be friendly and kind towards each taleteller.



2. You can create and design your post in almost any way you like, just keep in mind that you cannot throw in any sexual/adult stuff. It's highly forbidden.



3. You can also post your tale in parts, though I won't deny anyone the right to post a longer tale all at once.



4. Memorize this little piece of text: 'Come, come inside before the night falls, there are many tales to be told inside these stony and silent walls. Come, come inside before it is too late, here you'll find proper shelter, food and lots of ale.'



 



That will be all. :)



I shall start writing a tale, so expect it to be ready sometime after the holidays. Also, I want to be true to my style, so a poetic tale it shall be.



- Oerath Windsoul, The Tavernkeeper.

Hey Oerath, this looks like a good idea. I'd love to write something if I can find the time, but I've been busy finishing schoolwork (almost done now). I'll try to write something and look forward to seeing what you are working on. indecision

I might just have the work as ready to be posted, but I won't proceed with too much of a haste. I'll read it through and shape it as much as possible. This one will indeed be a poetry oriented narrative with some exceptions, as always. Little story parts there and there. And I will post the whole thing in two parts.



I'm sorry for being late with it. I just want to do things with patience and care these days.



So, I'll post it either today or tomorrow.



'Till then, cheers and thanks for waiting.
