About TWI - MagicAbout MagicAbout TWI - Magic3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yes, Magic! Fawnlings born in the Western Isles often posses magical powers - whether it’s the ability to heal the sick or curse the healthy.
Fawnlings can use magic for a variety of different things. The more complex the magic, the more difficult it is for a fawnling to perform, and so fawnlings must train hard in order to improve their magical skill. Using magic is both mentally and physically tiring - and attempting to use magic above their skill level can leave a fawnling severely weakened or even kill them! Read more about gaining magic skill in the Skills Journal.
Fawnlings can improve their magic, either permanently or temporarily, with the use of herbs and charms. To find out more about how this works, visit the Herbs Journal or the Charms Journal.

About TWI - Illness and InjuryJust like humans, fawnlings can suffer from a variety of physical and mental diseases and disabilities. Illnesses can range from something as simple as the common cold to serious illnesses like Moonfever and Shiver Sickness - and more permanent disabilities have just as wide a range.About TWI - Illness and Injury6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Fawnlings can - and do! - suffer from a range of illnesses which can vary from minor allergies to serious infectious diseases that can affect a whole herd
Most common illnesses can be treated by a skilled Herbalist but some, like the Common Cold, just require plenty of time and rest to recover from.
Fawnlings don’t really know very much about how diseases spread or occur. Some Herbalists have their own theories and these range from believing that bad smells spread disease, that they are the result of a centuries old curse from a powerful Blackwood, that fawnlings invite diseases to them by behaving in certain ways and even believing that dis

About TWI - The MapAbout TWI - The Map1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The Western Isles are a strange and magical place. Untouched and unknown by humans, the land has a pervasive sort of wildness that makes it unique. Divided at present into five kingdoms - Windborne, Glenmore, Oakfern, Blackwood, and Silverthorne - each territory is as singular and extraordinary as the fawnlings who inhabit it.
Most like the Australian Alps, Windborne is a surprisingly lush island. It boasts white sand beaches, tall mountains, green valleys… oh yeah, and an evil wind spirit.
Similar to Northern England and Scotland, Glenmore is possibly the safest kingdom in terms of things that will eat you. However, the politics are so sharp here, who needs fangs to make you bleed?

Western Isles - General RulesGeneral RulesWestern Isles - General Rules3 years ago in Personal More Like This
These are just some general rules to ensure playing on the Western Isles is a fun experience for everyone. We like them; simple, easy to remember.
1. Respect your fellow members and staff.
Common sense really, but if you’ve had a bad day we can all forget sometimes that we’re all just here to have fun. Take a step back if you need to and remember that its just a game, treat others how you wish to be treated and remember our staff are always here to help you - we’re on your side.
2. No God-modding.
For those who don’t know what this term means, it essentially means to respect other people’s characters too. No dictating or assuming their actions without their creators permission, and if you’re unsure about something always ask first - it’s safer.
3. Play fair.
This rule applies to all the Gary and Mary Sues out there: no character is invincible, unbeatable, uncatchable. Other players don&
About Fawnlings - HerdsFawnlings who exist in the world of the Western Isles are divided along lines of geography, culture, magic and bloodline into five herds: Blackwood, Glenmore, Oakfern, Silverthorne and Windborne.About Fawnlings - Herds5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Each herd is very different and there is great tension between them, particularly where they share borders. This tension is partly down to fractious histories, partly down to territorial disputes and partly down to general bad temperedness and not liking people who are different from you!
Some fawnlings, of course, don’t find themselves content in the herd of their birth - or any other herd! As a result they often find themselves wandering the Isles alone as Renegades.
Magic type: Black Magic
Height range: 11-14hh
Typical build: Any build, typically gaunt and malnourished.

About Fawnlings - Colours and PatternsFawnling ColoursAbout Fawnlings - Colours and Patterns1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Fawnlings come in most of the same coat colours that horses do - chestnut, bay, grulla, cremello, etc - if you see a horse in that colour, you’ll probably see a fawnling in that colour too! The only major difference between fawnling colours and horse colours is that fawnlings do not carry the same white pattern genes as horses, they have their own special fawn markings instead!
This journal will cover the basic colours and patterns that fawnlings can have. If you have any questions, please ask here - or keep your eyes peeled for when the FAQ is added
Fawnling colours and patterns are controlled by “genes”, which decide what your fawnling looks like, and what colours and patterns their offspring can inherit. A combination of genes is called a “genotype”. A “phenotype” is the name of the colour and pattern. For more information on fawnling genetics, see the Fawnling Genetics Journal (coming soon

Western Isles - FAQFAQWestern Isles - FAQ3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What are Fawnlings?
Fawnlings are an original breed of creature that is a hybrid between a horse and a deer, sharing characteristics of both. They are based on the original idea of unicorns who were said to have possessed both deer-like and horse-like features.
What is the Western Isles?
The Western Isles (TWI) is a art and text based role-play for Fawnlings. Set in medieval times on an island chain far from human knowledge, the game focuses around the story and struggle of the five Western Kingdoms as they battle against each other for supremacy and power. This alternate universe offers players a free form world in which to interact while completing challenges, discovering hidden secrets and making mischief. The role-play caters for all levels and tastes in role playing, from pure art and text to a mixture of the both, and all levels of activity from the casual player to the more involved.
Is it the same as HARPG?
Nope! TWI is separate to HARP

Artist's Toolbox: Dry pastelArtist's Toolbox: Dry PastelArtist's Toolbox: Dry pastel2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
A Pastel is an art medium consisting of pure powdered pigment and a binder of a neutral hue and low saturation. Pastels have been used by artists since Renaissance, but gained popularity mostly in the 18th century, when a number of notable artists made pastel their primary medium. An artwork created in pastel is called a pastel drawing or a pastel painting. We mentioned pastel as one of traditional art techniques in a series of articles written for Traditional Art Weeks of projecteducate
Pastels cannot be mixed on a palette like paints, but are mixed on the paper by overlaying and blending. The exact composition and characteristics of an individual pastel stick depends on the type of pastel and the type and amount of binder used. It also varies by individual manufacturer. There are two types of pastel -
