Ringing the flesh to my core.
I can feel the vibration in my soul,
And I begin to yearn for home.
Those stars call me,
Pulling at my soul,
Singing the sweetest songs.
I can feel the gravitation
As they spin and sweep space.
On cloudless nights
I direct my gaze upwards
Staring deep into space: Home.
I admire the glistening faces
Of family members, so far...
But know that I will travel there one day,
And heed your call.

Chapter 1 The Masked Puppeteer
The rain pitter-pattered off of the roof. It drizzled down through the streets of cobbled stone. The dark clouds cracked with lightning overhead. A faint music permeated the air. A music box, its sound haunted the desolate city square.
A fountain filled the middle and a statue arose from it. The winged woman, she looked so sad. Her tears filled the basin below her, overflowing out into the street. A figure stood watching her sorrowful expression. The sound of a violin weeping filled the soggy surroundings.
The cloaked person danced in time with the cries of box. The arms wide while

~The Powers That Would Not Be~
Ours is a story of ancient roots. It all began at the birth of a tiny blue and green planet, called Earth. Before any life began on this planet, gods of ancient and unknown origin began shaping it with their divine powers. There were 4 gods in all, one of fire, who began to churn the core of the planet; one of earth, who began shaping the terrain with glorious mountains and deep valleys; one of sky, who began to protect the planet from space; and one of sea; who filled the planet with water, and eventually begat life. Once humans had begun to evolve, the divine gods decided amongst themselves that

Beneath the cold snow that blanketed the VerritAck-Namide desert, yet just above the frozen sand that was the essence of the very continent, lay a thick layer of ice. Nothing was special about this ice, it was sandwiched between snow and sand and that was it, the only remarkable aspect that could be noted.
But several kilometres away from Lithdohrlach, there was a plateau in the desert, a long, flat stretch of snow and ice. Again, there was nothing remarkable that anyone knew of. White, boring snow that continued on for leagues, only to meet the ocean.
But, then something truly remarkable did happen.

Tes fins cheveux noirs le long de ton nez
Ton air froid et insolent
Mon air candide et décadent
Là haut sur le toit j'observe les étoiles
Mes pensées voguent dans ce silence harmonieux
La lune est sombre, elle a revêtu son voile
À quoi servirait ma plainte au fond des cieux ?
Toi, arrogant ennemi
Qui hante mes rêves et mes nuits,
Comme si tu n'avais pas toutes ces filles à tes pieds,
Comme si c'était ma haine qu'il te fallait.
Arrête ! Arrête j'ai dit !
Je ne me soucie pas de toi, oublie !
Il faut que je te crache à la figure ?
Que je m'attire tes foudres de mauvaise augure ?

Reprenant sa course sur le trottoir, pleine de gaieté,
Sautille et bondit, petite dame au rire pétillant,
La petite fille cache quelque chose dans ses paumes d'enfant,
Elle le touche en fermant les yeux, elle danse et chante,
De ces gestes enfantins, se dégage une odeur de menthe,
Un goût sucré d'été derrière cette frimousse innocente,
Une ruelle au bout du trottoir, atrocité violente,
Sueurs froides, elle hurle, impuissante.
L'inconnu a surgit, pressé, avide,
Il a laissé derrière lui, un regard vide.

Story Idea for Dungeons and DragonsHave the PCs find a dragon egg in some random place, or being carried by a monster. When they recover the egg, they hear a tiny child-like draconic voice in their heads (or in one PCs head only) complaining about being cold. The PCs may wish to incubate the egg, sell the egg or return the egg to its mother's nest. It may be a lawful good dragon species. This particular dragon pre-hatchling has extra telepathic communication talent. It might be that this is what got it in trouble to begin with.Story Idea for Dungeons and Dragons5 months ago in Settings More Like This

Beginning of Our AdventuresThe way we started Dungeons and Dragons was when we got tired of LARPing. Our stories for our RPG adventures were getting a little weak, we argued plenty while LARPing, and the fact everyone got tired of the same old thing. We decided to come from a different approach. Tim, the club leaders' dungeon master, went out and bought a DnD starter set with the beginner's book, a bunch of pieces, some maps, and a default storyline. The game started out with William, Tyler, and I, Rob, entering the first level of the dungeon. We were all pretty cautious because we all instinctively knew that Murphy's law is always against us. We entered the firsBeginning of Our Adventures7 years ago in Biography & Memoir More Like This

Unto the church of Diana I write. Wisdom and patience brings great things under the works of the LORD and Father. Your patience and respect shall be rewarded for the time at hand. But forbear any reward until the end of the word of Abbah the father; for thou must repent against these things.
For the church of Diana I write. Thou hast a sign of praise and worthiness, and this must end; for you build your pedestal as high as the gentile gods, and this you shall fall from. As for the things thou hast done well, I praise thee in good name for the works of Amon, which thou hates and I loathe. For this you shall receive a crown of life. But repent! For this crown of life is always accompanied by a shield of wisdom, for ye shall lead the generations of nations as the city of all the lands until the end of the word of Abbah the father.

The Scroll Of RighteousnessThe one atop the throne, about his right side was a scroll, two cubits long and half a cubit wide. And upon the scroll was writing on the backside and within; and was sealed nine times over along the length of the scroll. Before me a strong angel looked about and upon his lips uttered, “Who upon the dominion of the LORD shall open this scroll of parchment and look thereon?” And neither man nor beast from the Earth, nor the angels in heaven nor any beneath the Earth were able to open the scroll or look thereon.The Scroll Of Righteousness1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
And about me a shudder overcame, and I wept, for no one about the dominion of the LORD was able to open the scroll nor look thereon. And an angel came forth toward me, and uttered kind words from his lips, and was saying, “Weep not King of the Knodites, for a man hath come who has opened the scroll and loosed the nine seals thereof.” And I looked and beheld, a lamb stood with seven eyes and seven horns as though slain.
The First SealAnd the lamb of God opened the first seal, and loosed the seal and read thereon, and an angel with me came forth and saith on me, “Come with thee and join thou in seeing the hereafter,” And I joined him, and beheld a great site. For Diana was a city of crystal and glass. And the people had built great towers to live in, and beasts with wheels upon them carted men and women forth and about to places beneath the towers, and birds upon the skies were as though the size of great houses and screamed under the speed of their flight. And out of their bellies came forth men and women, the people of Diana, and two and fro they went about great structures. And the walls of Diana had crumbled beneath these towers, and structures of stone and crystal, each greater than the last shown forth, and metals and shiny things from the city were made to show its wealth.

Upon this, the people of Phoinikes saw that there was a revolt against them, and went to the armory to gather weapons and quell the revolt. The servants who tended them were at the armory of the city, and had been in wait.

The War Of TribulationsAnd there was war in the heavens, many years before our time; for the LORD thy God, Abbah thy father had created heaven and the Earth in his image and under his likeness. And the LORD and father had formed Heaven and the Earth, and made the Earth such that Heaven shall worship it; and Heaven refused to worship the Earth, saying ‘we here who came first by birth are the true heirs to your birthright,’ and made war with the LORD under two-thirds his dominion and with the Satan as their king. And the Satan was beloved most among the angels of the LORD, and was once his shining star and the judge of all the kings of the Earth, and the angels in Heaven; and him rebelled against the Earth and the LORD and were banished from Heaven. They were made such that they could never set foot in Heaven again.The War Of Tribulations1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This

And they were shifted out of place or had disappeared from the Earth and from underneath the Earth, and the rivers and streams and lakes all shifted and were moved and routed to different places on the Earth.
