Okay, first of all, DA, WHY DO JOURNAL TITLES HAVE SUCH A LOW CHARACTER LIMIT!?! I wanted this to be titled Figuring Out the Origins of Sphinxes and Manticores in My Flintlock Fantasy Setting. Second of all, DA, WHY CAN'T I USE THE "&" SYMBOL IN A JOURNAL TITLE IF YOU GIVE US SO FEW CHARACTERS!?!

It occurred to me today that my flintlock fantasy story setting actually has a way for me to do that with what are called the Wandering Remnants, which are a specific variety of Demigod. I should clarify that a Demigod is not the child of a god and a mortal in my setting. Rather, a Deity is any being which has the capacity to exist in multiple locations at the same time AND who can create something out of nothing while a Demigod can only do one of those two things - occupy multiple locations at once OR create something out of nothing. Anyway, Deities and Demigods cannot be killed but they can be broken into smaller divine beings. While a Deity can be

^^ thank you for the favorite!

Thank you for sharing your art!

Thanks for this llama badge. May I introduce myself to you?

Hello. I'm Nickolas/Club-Dreamiverse and I'm doing good, you? Want to role-play with me in notes or chatroom?

Unfortunately, I'm super busy with my writing. I just finished these character sheets and now I have to finish putting together some reference material for an artist I've commissioned. Thank you for the offer, though.
