Once Again: Vivid and Void

Two suns. One moon. They all fight to exert their will over the planets that circle them. Vast, unknowable beings with wills as unchangeable as they are egocentric.

After all, of what value is a single ant to the stag that walks upon it, never knowing of the small life that just ended? Exactly none. Unless you are the ant.

Once Again: Worldsmith

Looking down from on high, one can be forgiven for thinking the mountains and rivers, canyons and seas are simple and trivial things. One can forget how easy it is for such things to turn on those on the ground, who rely on their unchanging nature.

Motherships

“The candy cap was a revelation to me: redolent with the smell of maple, marvelously silky and spongy in texture, earth and meaty and sweet. When you eat a candy cap, your skin smells like maple sugar. When you exercise after eating a candy cap, your sweat smells like maple sugar. When you make love after eating a candy cap . . . well, I leave that to your imagination, but . . . yes.”

The Party Animal

What is it, precisely, that separates us from the beasts? Some have suggested that it is our opposable thumbs, others think is it more sophisticated that that and suggested that it is something like communication or imagination. I am here to tell you that they were all partly correct and that it is the combination of these things that raises us up from beasts. It is a simple impulse, the impulse to party.

Rainchild Revival

Rain. The giver of life, the blessing of mother nature. When the water falls people rejoice. When snow falls they laugh. But when frogs fall? When fish fall? When fire and rocks fall? Less so.

A Hellish Crusade

Religion is a sticking point where ever it appears, and whoever is inspired by it. A country pastor is not 3 steps away from a charismatic cult leader; a king is even closer to god-emperor. The same can be said on the flip side of the coin. Demons too are Zealots and those who lead them will forever need their faith to drive their armies.

Here There Be Dragon Engines

In a world where dragons exist and where magic can transform bread to solid gold, what use is a machine? Where angels fight demons and gods walk the earth, who needs a calculator?

Taking into account the fact that recent figures indicate that there are more than 200 million insects for each human on the planet, that the world holds 300 pounds of insects for every pound of humans, aren’t we lucky that they are so dim do not possess the ability to conspire against us? Don’t you think we are lucky they can’t do that, yet?

The Shapers Guild

Empire of the Creeping Death

There is a charming little creature that lives around these parts. They are scared of the sun and are known to dance for their mates when they are happy. Also, they can kill a man in under a minute with just one sting. Perfectly charming as long as you are not the one being stung.

Judex the Punisher

In the distance a mountain range rises to tower above the horizon, The peaks tear at the clouds like the teeth of a giant beast.

So many dangers are represented in a mountain. The cold and exposure of the highest climes. The dark pressure of the warrens beneath. Or, the fiery destruction that waits within, slumbering.

Mortimer the Mobster

People put far too much stock in the sheer numbers of an army. One million men can march, but without training, confidence, will, equipment and leadership they may fall to the swords of a few good men with the will to die for their cause. Those with the will to win can always defeat those fight for mere coin.

Doctor Wonderfun's Familiar Academy

There is almost no item of greater potential and power, magically speaking, than an egg. This one, small, innocuous little container filled with life, energy, transformation, spirit, potential and change. Such things are magic in it’s most natural form.

And it doesn’t hurt that it is neatly packaged for transport.

Mormon Tortuga

Stained glass is, in itself, a story. Thousand of tiny gemstone-coloured shards each with their own history and personality. They join together and create vast and imposing monoliths of meaning and significance.

Is it any surprise then that some of these stories will change and grow over time? What once was pure and holy, becoming jaded and angry when they do not receive the worship and attention they had become accustomed to. What then?

Few things cut as efficiently as glass.
