I wasn't there when the weavers were discussed the first time - I can only read the result of the discussion on the site, and it says they were mortals before gaining their knowledges. Is this something to be changed?

Talia, I do not disagree with you, but you can't imagine a person right or wrong, you just imagine this person. Your picture is different from mine that's all. Since Rayne is writing the entry, it's up to her to deside, how she wants the weavers to be.

I see them different, you see them to human like I think- though they may have been once humans, elves.. they are no longer, don‘t have the desires humans have, aren‘t able to feel rage.. at least, that is my impression..


That's why they are so interesting to me - because I think of them as human beings with all the fears, hopes and feelings. Just humans, who fight in a struggle, that lasts for millennia, and who every day have to find the strength do go on and do what they have to do. If you take the ability to feel away from them, they will become dull godlike characters. It's the weaknesses that make a hero, weaknesses everyone else couldn't overcome.

No, no secret police, nothing like that.

But imagine you were a Weaver - you know the fabric of Dream is very thin, and you know there are beings on the other side who longed for centuries to break through it and who would wreak havoc as soon as they cross the line. And you put all your efforts to maintain this line - only to watch how another ignorant bearded fool ruins all your work playing with his magic. Would this leave you cold?

I guess, even a Weaver's work at some point can become a routine, but on very rare occasions, when a skilled summoner really endangers Caelereth, it would only be wise to talk to this summoner and ensure he won't repeat his mistake. And for the summoner it probably would be wise not to mention the conversation.

That's how I see it: the Weavers, despite their immortality, are also only humans, whose patience isn't endless.

Well, the way the gods are discribed, they could probably take someone from the realm of the living into the realm of the dead. But completely wipe them off the Dream?

Now when I think of it... Could Ava just undream a person?

As for those visits... I guess you're right. I just liked the idea that they represent a danger for every summoner, making summoning a bit like stealing - you better not get caught.

Well, I just thought of an analogy between the Weavers and the extra-terrestrians here in our world. Some of us claim to have seen them, but we still know nothing. *smiles*

Just how powerful are they then? I think even the gods can't simply wipe someone out of the Dream.

You should write about some of the rare mysterious encounters, when angry weavers appeared in front of the summoners and had short and polite conversations with them (probably using such heavy indisputable arguments as wooden staves) about holes in the fabric of the Dream being a bad bad thing. *grins*

Do you plan to replace the current entry about weavers or just amplify it, by the way?

P.S. Good luck with the exams, you both.

Yes, you can write hundreds of pages describing an animal, or you can just say that it's a horse.

Please, no Soulscreamers and Deathcriers. These are the kind of names you usually see in bad fantasy books (note the capital letters), and this is no good tradition to adopt.

I agree with Aran, both about the name "Banshee" and the beauty of the undead. It's a question though, if a ghost can be called "undead", since it doen't physically exist.

Morcaan, this is what should have been done long ago, you're not pulling the rank. Not from my point of view at least. I'm glad there will be dragon maps soon.

The most outstanding ability of the giant moth is probably its swooping drop-attack, which is similar to that normally observed in predator birds.


Just wondering, how do they actually hunt? The birds, as far as I know, stop their fall shortly before they reach the ground and grab their prey. For the Pikewings this probably would be impossible, so do they just bite a piece off the poor victums and fly away? Brr...

All in all, a nice spooky entry.

Just kidding about that. :)

But yeah, I think the rats lived in the city before the cats appeared.

Thanks for your time, Talia.

It may be so as you say, but I would alter it nevertheless,because if everybody comes and says: my beast is the bestm biggest, ...or my plant is the most beautiful, we have onlly beasts with surpass each other.

I understand. Didn't really want them to be the smartest beasts. Just as smart as the Ximax cats to add some fun in the life on the Ximax streets. "Tom and Jerry" in Santharian style. :D
Quote:
Are all young rats magical inclined, or can it happen, that a normal rat is born?, Just came to my mind while reading

Well, if a Ximax rat falls in love with a common rat, then it can happen, sure. :)  They aren't magical inclined actually. They don't throw spells around, they're just smart. :)
Quote:
This would be perfect, if you could mention the kind of mage...maybe ask one of the mages.

Just some idealistic but not very patient mage. :)  Could be an elementalist. An earth mage perhaps. He just went to the Great Library and found some books about summoning high demons. Nothing unusuall, every day's business. :D
The whole story is quite old, maybe a thousand years, and noone knows if it's true. The kind of the mage could be easily forgotten in such a long time, couldn't it? ;)

So, and what do you want to write next?

The story about Yerun, I guess. Have to keep my promisses. :)

Wrote the myth part at last. :)   Was a bit hard to find some time for that  because of the Christmas and New Year. Anyway, It's finished and ready for the check.

P.S. Phew, almost forgot to add your sayings, Talia. ;)
