A Winter Warmed: Chapter 3 Runa was coaxed back to the waking world by a slow warming in her limbs. At first she was only distantly aware of the noise of close movement, but as the chill receded from her skin to her muscles and finally to her bones, her senses sharpened. She could smell a wonderfully rich stench hanging thick in the air. Slowly, her eyes fluttered open. Muted colors swirled through her vision, melting and morphing like a distant sunset.A Winter Warmed: Chapter 310 minutes ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Something wet pressed against her cheek. Curious, though groggy, Runa raised her hand and felt the short fur of a creature's muzzle. As her vision cleared, she found herself gazing into the most beautifully intelligent eyes of a forest fox the color of clouds on a rainy day.
The clink of metal rang as loud as a bell in her skull. Runa groaned softly, closing her eyes and trying to push the ache from her brain.
"Hm," muttered a distinctly male voice. "So you're finally waking up. I was beg

He had been watering down drinks the last time the Knights got together. She had suspected this was happening and then stumbled upon Laythan actually performing the evil deed.

Der eine komplett in den Farben der Stadt gekleidet bestehend aus einer roten Hose und rot-grüner Wappenrock mit dem Stadtemblem darauf. Der Andere nur in Hose und mit einer rot-grünen Schärpe die quer über seine Brust verlief, mehr nicht. Es wäre ja auch sinnlos gewesen, einen Faun in einen Wappenrock zu zwängen, wenn es schon schwer genug war ihn davon zu überzeugen eine Hose zu tragen.

Maka lazily stretched out in the sunlight, her tail wagged slightly with her happiness. The other were all spread out too, no doubt they all enjoyed the warm sun of spring.
Keani was the only one not relaxing. She lay in the sand near the others staring out into the ocean, her eyes creased with worry.
"Everything ok Keani?" Mana looked at her friend worriedly.
Keani shook her head slightly, "something doesn't feel right. It feels like trouble."
"Oh no there she goes again, Keani we already took down the scary whale, there's no need to cry anymore." Mana shot Lolani a scolding look.

"Tallcloud?" Whiskerpaw questioned. She wasn't too sure if she could trust this strange tom. His large, white frame was quite visible in the faint dawn light. His light blue eyes were like tiny pools of water that seemed to swirl with wisdom beyond his years. Who was this odd tom? "That sounds like a Clan name."
Tallcloud shook his head. "You are correct, small medicine cat, but now isn't the time to discuss where I can from. We need to help this young warrior." He pointed with his muzzle towards Tinysnake's limp and bloody form. Whiskerpaw's paws were still applying pressure on the tom's neck, trying to prevent more blood from spilling out.
"But I don't see anything around that could help us," Whiskerpaw stated as she glanced around at the trees. There were no herbs nor cobwebs in sight. "What are we going to do?" She looked at her left and was surprised to see that Tallcloud was gone. "Tallcloud?" He must've gone to find some herbs. She focused her attention on Tinysnake; the mottled

Rumors fly where birds dare not. So traveled news of the golden river of Reyid, and Wave began to flourish with prospectors and dreamers. The larger cities didn't believe the rumors until wealthy merchants returned from the desert with golden nuggets large as the plums they sold or the rubies they traded. River's Miracle, the villagers called it, liking the double-meaning. How the water came to be, no one could guess. Thorn credited God, Abril the water gods, while the villagers congenially agreed with both and secretly worshiped the little boy who found the river, his namesake, so they now supposed.
River seemed oblivious to the awe he had garnered. He continued to trip alongside his father to tend the sheep, or bring flourishing desert blossoms to Evalee, or help his mama prepare dinner. The shepherd family was unchanged by the discovery of Wave's wealth, as was most of the village.
Before greed could set in, while the villagers were still waiting for the mirage t

I started sweating, so I put a hand on my forehead. This is when I realized that I now had control of the left half of Daniel's body.
We both got up and looked at ourselves in the mirror. Together, we stood at 6'1", which was much taller than my petite 5'3" height. Our shared chest also had no breasts, which didn't really matter to me, since I was previously flat-chested anyway. And in our pelvis area was... well, you guys know. I don't need to spell it out to you. But let me tell you, it felt huge.

Giels war eine friedliche kleine Stadt. Vielleicht nicht einmal groß genug um Stadt genannt zu werden. Es wirkt wie ein Außenposten, was Giels früher auch war. Erbaut im Krieg gegen die Dämonen, ein wichtiger Außenposten der viel überstanden und zum Sieg beigetragen hatte. Jetzt leben hier normale Menschen und ab und zu kommen Ritter und Reisende vorbei die etwas verweilen. Jährlich werden hier neue Squire rekrutiert. Ich frage mich wozu eigentlich, noch nie sah ich hier etwas böswilliges. Meine Eltern erlaubten mir aber auch nicht auf reisen zu gehen, vielleicht gibt es ja immer noch Wesen die sich gegen das Gesetz wenden oder noch schlimmer, vielleicht gib es immer noch Dämonen.

Within this world, there are many types of people. There are those who dwell on the eastern coasts, where industry booms and technology to control and harness the flow of magical energy develops rapidly under enterprisers’ hungry gazes. There are those in the mountains, notorious for their bonds with the dragons and their legacy as tamers. In the north resides the harsh arctic tundra, where steel-clad beasts that spit ice terrorize locals, and fauns banished from contact with humans have adapted to a harsher climate than their once spring-like home. In the far south, sandy deserts are separated from the rest of the world by a landscape of scorching red rocks, and the nomadic peoples of the region have long since been separated from the rest of their species.
And in the woodlands resides the barbaric tribes of the west. Viewed as wild, dangerous, and uncivilized by most, the barbarian clans of the woodlands are known for their close relatio

A Guide to Wind ElementalsWind ElementalA Guide to Wind Elementals3 hours ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This
Wind elementals have been a leading cause of mayhem for as long as there have been wind elementals. However, up until recently, they were somewhat rare, due to the scarcity of their primary food source and preferred nest-making material. Wind elementals use light, fluffy materials to make their nests - dust especially - and feed on electricity. Therefore, aging computers have become a prime target for wind elemental infestations.
Being a member of the Umbrabilis domain, wind elementals have no observable form. When viewed through an Astral Imaging Device, they can be seen as a vortex of energy, with the adult form reaching the size of a basketball. Further analysis has revealed that despite their chaotic nature, wind elementals are, in fact, quite stable in form. Beyond discharging bursts of electricity proportionate to their size, the only power a wind elemental possesses is shaping the wind in and around it into various forms. If a large
