Introduction

Honored Scholars, Reputable Donors and Learned Men of Muraska. Greetings, I write this message with the full understanding that your faith in our work is, to be blunt, a tad more fragile than the parchment I write upon.  Admittedly, I understand that our limited contribution to the arts of war or religious thoughts means that […]

On Shicts

As a race, we know far less about shicts than they seem to know about us.  This, as I understand it, is their main problem with humanity, though by no means the only one.  Their other grievances include the usual list: loss of land, incompatible lifestyles to the fact that we simply refuse to die.  […]

On Priests

The greatest blessing humanity was ever given by our Gods was their sheer multitude, that we may never want for something to kill each other over.  Our deities number in the dozens and each ideology handed down by them seems to dictate the complete and utter destruction of the other ones.  It was only realized […]

On Wizards

Officially, wizards do not practice “magic.”  Officially, wizards channel “Venarie,” that extra special spice in their bodily stew that allows them to amplify their natural processes to the awe-inspiring displays of power they’re renowned for.  And, just to give you a deeper insight into how in control they are of those displays, the official statistic […]

On the Common Man

With friends such as wizards, priest and varying degrees of monstrosity, one wouldn’t think that adventurers would have a great deal of use for the common man.  After all, the common man, on the whole, is the sort of lying, cheating, dishonest and cowardly sort that one wouldn’t want put in a profession that encourages […]

On Dragonmen

Dragonmen do not exist.  Dragonmen are not real.  They are weird, horrifying beasts born out of stories used to–and succeeding in–terrifying anyone from a child to a soldier. Half of that is true. I suppose I first realized that dragonmen, weird and horrifying as they are, first existed when Gariath nearly broke my arm five […]

On…them?

NOTE: No entry was found accompanying this drawing beyond the errant scribbles at the bottom.  All consultations with field guides of worldly flora and fauna have yielded no insights into what these creatures may be. One of our recruits from Toha suggests secondhand knowledge of secondhand knowledge of the creatures at the top, citing that […]

On the Venarium

Common knowledge of the Venarium extends to the acknowledgment of the fact that no one knows a damn thing about them or what they know.  Amazingly, secret societies founded on the idea that the ability to set your urine on fire sets you apart from the common man aren’t entirely forthcoming with what exactly makes […]

On Greenshicts

For a race that, theoretically, resents the knowledge that humanity even knows of its existence, information on the shictish tribes is surprisingly common.  A lot of this knowledge, of course, is pieced together mostly from people too drunk to know better than to talk or children who vaguely remember their mothers telling them it when […]

On Lizardmen

On some level, that these people even exist seems like an affront.  Granted, the world is big.  Granted, we don’t know a lot about it.  Granted, since humanity is divided, the shicts are savages and the inhuman races of the world are scattered to the wind, not one of us could really be expected to […]
