Overview.

Description.
As a boat approaches Saenyhal, the face of the cliff rises out of the mist to stand hundreds of times taller than any human being. The term cliff face has particular meaning for Witchking’s Cliff, because the power of the wind and water (and perhaps darker forces) have carved the cliff into a crude facsimile of a human face with a clearly discernible nose and chin.

Atop the “head” of the cliff lies a bare patch of green grass, along with a “crown” of giant stones arranged in a circle, the Demon Circle. Among those standing stones, local folklore tells of unspeakable acts of cruelty and malevolence, forever marking that circle a place of ill-will. Those stories have spread, which leads to sailors keeping a wide berth of the cliff for reasons beyond the risk of shipwreck. That fear has led many sailors wasting time who are journeying northeast to Churican or Milkengrad to head far to the south, towards Mt. Armacan.

The name of the cliff is thought to have arisen from the lore of the rituals that once took place in the Demon Circle, and particularly the witch king who led them. Local tales tell that it is that witch king’s visage which is carved into the stone of the cliff in the instant of his death.

Location.
The face of a small peninsula that juts into the Dark Sea like a god-sized dagger, Witchking’s Cliff is one of the most striking features of the island of Saenyhal in the Santharian province of Vardınn. In fact, the island is so associated with the cliff that the island as a whole is often called the Witchking’s Isle.

People.
No one resides on barren Witchking’s Cliff, but its few visitors are mostly the people of Saenyhal: Erpheronians

Climate.
Open to the ravages of the open sea, the weather on Witchking’s Cliff is frequently brutal. The wind blows across the cliff, and a strong gust has been known to knock a poor soul off the cliff entirely.

Fauna..

Flora.

My God. I started a trend. And unleashed a virus.

Short. It's good.

Really paints a picture.

You can even see a face in there.

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers

Short note: We had a bit of downtime Friday/Saturday night due to a server change. Site went online first, message boards took a while longer - now everything should be back to normal.
