*can i kill this machine!* i wrote a whole entry and it has deleted it! my beloved comp...

wow, two totally different personalities in 15 minutes... a lion searching for his next prey and a serene panther (if such a thing is possible...) reminds me of myself… Talking too much and getting off topic again, so:

I wouldn’t call myself a Santharian –yet. However you might have encountered – in various forums (mainly teambg)- IceDrake and moo(o)nguard *grabs Silfer by the ear and whisper loudly: “that’s…me”*

*arrogance waring* ?

PS: how do you make that line that appears on the left side of a quotation from someone’s post?

“On the "he is too powerful" thing - are you from the RPG?” Meaning?

And what do I mean by what? Now I’m confused… I had once written about a mage named Xarl, and the magical theories on the site (when I saw the hall of fame, I thought this whole magic system (if one can call it that, since it’s more meta-physical *grins at Arti*, right?) are quite similar to what I once wrote. A monotheist cleric would say, “the same source – divine inspiration” *grin*

PS: what should I correct ‘bout my style, what makes me ‘write’ so arrogantly?

Arrogance warning was posted because what I wrote after that was arrogant.

Sorry for all the typos, I don't spellcheck posts normally.

And thanks for clarification. (BTW-the white line appears if you push the "quote" button on your left when posting)

@Arti: Well, if it becomes relevant, I will shed light on when that staff was made... if not, then not. And yes, I will change the quote (won't be updated until i post chapter two)

Silfer:

I was also about to suggest "chambers" for the series of rooms within the Ximaxian Academy.

Also, re styling - I wouldn't have used the expression 'Old English' as very few people are able to read/write/speak that particular tongue these days and in fact a modern non-academic would not even recognize it as 'English'.  Have a look at "Beowulf" in the original if you don't believe me!

However, I think the point our new friend might have been trying to make was legitimate - why 'damn it' when we already have a collection of flavourful Santharian oaths?  Not that that particular expression hasn't been used in a wide variety of cultures, and not meaning to imply that the concept of damnation does not exist in Caeletherian religion, of course!

Silfer, quick - check the magic forum. If you haven't come up with an idea why he fails (probably you have but anyway...) in Dasson's and my post there probably is an expla.

Can't wait to see the second part of this...

@Bard/judith (which one should i call you with? both?): thanks for explaning, that's what i meant ;)

Ok, second chapter up. The quote is a little edited (Arti-does it work that way?), apartment is edited... other things edited, and chapter two is as said up. Please comment.

PS: This is not the right forum to be posting this, but i've just listened to a lament sang by Wren... it's just... splendid. Please, beg her to continue singing. Her voice very much reminds of Enya in 'a day without rain'

Back to the original topic:
*searching for new ways to express 'beautiful'*

Just a few questions:( probably already in santharia, but couldn't find them myself)

1- How old is Lucaj? How old should one be in order to enter the academy? See my comments below:
2- Where does this blue smoke come from? What are they smoking? (maybe you could ask someone in herbarium to guide you) [a stupid question:] Is there any restrictions/age limit in Santharia regarding smoking? :hat
3- already asked it in chat but maybe rephrase: '... and it was nothing compared to the ancient art of Xeua' imo, sounds as if Xeua was an ancient art that is forgoten now, rather than a Xeua magic (a or an?) without spell formulas etc...
4- just out of curiosity: what is an 'archfreak'?

and that's about it

1. As old as he should appear to be, lest I write an exact age.

2. Well, the students were obviously smokign... and being a smoker myself, I find tobacco smoke (tobacco is in santharia) to be bluish

3.Xeua exists, but IMHO it is also degraded to spell formulas and reagents.. as i told you. (At least in this story it has... among humans)

4.Arch-as in Archmage... and freak. King of Freaks?

Good to know you like it.

Great! I'm really looking forward to seeing the next chapter. That second chapter was wonderful in developing Lucaj's character. I imagine him to become a really evil wizard later...

It's always intriguing to read of the childhood and adolescence of villains.

Hmm... Well, Can we use the quote/prophecy/whatever you call it at the beginning as teaser? Because it sorta summarizes the story...

Alternatively this frst pasrt (aobut Lucaj) can be summarized by the first part of the prohecy... excluding the thing aobut the three rising up to defend the dream.

Nope, that's not enough, as the quote alone doesn't say anything about the story. So when I read the quote alone if I want to decide if I read the story, then I would expect a myth, but the story is very different from that.

Yes, I see your point... :

A lonely apprentice at the magical academy of Ximax searching for arcane knowledge finds a scroll telling of a very ancient form of Xeua. As he digs deeper into the art, gaining conrtol over the Orb of Ximax, the world itself trembles. All hope rests on the three capable of stopping him...
