Maw First Visit

Picked up the book for Maw last night after a couple of attempts at getting access to the Age.

I Linked in to a small cave lit by a firemarble. I could hear the faint crash of waves and bird call coming from outside of the tunnel that lead out of the cave.

The tunnel leads out into a deep chasm of rock which rises up to the open air and descends down into the darkness, not sure how deep it goes though might drop some firemarbles down and see at some point.

The chasm is broken by pillars of rock jutting out from the chasm walls, it is possible to use them to move around the chasm and access the other caves that seem to exist.

Spent some time climbing down investigating the other caves, seems one of the firemarble lamps is broken in one of the lower caves. Not sure what Whil plans to do with the place but the whole construct just makes me think of the Bahro and their architecture.

Fens First Visit

Fens

Should have packed my wet suit that is for sure. The Age is of a swamp classification, surrounded by rock face. Off the bat I can hear a selection of birds and insects which I should track down.

There seems to be 3 maybe 4 different plants that I can see.
“Fantails” which come in 2 varieties (male plants and female perhaps?) Small “Stonecap” mushrooms and the tall pillar like trees.

The fourth is a strange sack like object that clings to the side of these trees. Upon further exploration I discovered a fallen tree with 3 of these objects upon them. As of yet I have not determined if they are plants, seeds for the mushrooms or if they are a cocoon containing an animal or insect.

Upon further exploration I discovered a Stonecap which had the tendrils that glow red like the tall trees, which lead me to consider that the Stonecaps are the young versions of the Trees or Elder Stonecaps as I decided to refer to them as.

Fens

A thought just occurred to me, what if the Elder Stonecaps roots go into the earth, split off into many branches and resurface as the Stonecaps?

I’ll have to talk to Whil and see what he has discovered.

Last night Whil stopped by with a Linking Book to his new Age.

He had asked if anyone was interested in visiting and classifying some of the things in the Age, so I expressed my interest. The slowing down of the DZS of late has made me feel that my previous classification project should continue once more.

Have a few things to sort out before I venture off to check it out.

Of Computers and Eder Tsogahl

The new computer has been put in the office, had some issues with Vista not being installed on it correctly but that is okay, I wanted to put XP on it anyway. After some driver issues and it not playing nice with the Pathfinder software we finally got it working.

Been in and out of Tsogahl over the last few days, the weather there has been nice lately. Spent a few hours earlier just hanging out with Keira and Steve.

I’m thinking of moving the Jalak Book from the archive to Tehren so we can get some “public” games going, it has been a while since I have played Highball and Shifting Sands.
