Close your eyes, letting the outside world fadeaway, to the comfortable grey darkness behind your eyelids.
Take a deep breath. Inhaling, exhaling.
Inhale, breathing in the energetic life forces of the planet. Exhale, releasing the tensions of the day, feeling comfortable, calm, relaxed.
And as you breathe, picture a cord of light which runs down your spine and into the earth below you. It goes down, down, through the floor, into the grass and earth and sand below you, past the roots of trees, past the bones and pot shards of your ancestors. Down into living rock. Down to the molten core center of the earth, where lava flows, glowing red and scarlet. Tap into this core of energy and as you inhale, pull it up into your body where it fills you and radiates through you. Feel the power of the red, vibrant energies of the earth as it pumps through your bloodstream, strengthening and energizi

"Snake people disguised as guards," the Demon Hunter interjected, pointing a finger at the report. "Thousands of snake people disguised as guards."
"Fine, snake people. However, according to your Wizard friend here, you originally did not know they were snake people."
"..They wouldn't let us pass," the Demon Hunter replied, more question than statement.
"And at no point did you think to yourself, 'oh, you know what I should do? Call my superiors, maybe explore some diplomatic channels.' You guys jumped straight to ethnic cleansing," the bulbous constable replied, scowling. "This is on top of assisting a rogue Horadrim, letting Deckard Cain's niece get kidnapped, and, cherry on top, breaking every single piece of pottery from Arcanus to Caldeum."
"That last part, I didn't even want to do that. I thought breaking all the pottery was a waste of time. This one though, the bloodlu

"Considering the damage he must have done to that body --- thirty years of every drug a man could snort, sniff or shoot, and the last ten years as a practicing health-freak and gourmand... it's a blessing he got as long as he did.

Strangled RedThere are tons of stories out there about hacked pokemon games. Some of them really quite neat such as the one about a version where you get a ghost as a starter. Some are ridiculous as well, silly stories about people dieing after playing a game, or the game talking to them. God, don't these writers know less is more when it comes to this stuff?

I grew interested in these hacked games that are apparently in any thrift store, on ebay, or handed out by homeless people to random passersby.
