Ah, here he is, our newest member: Thorongil - hell, he's even a general as it seems, so be polite, guys *haha*

Okeydokey: Do I get you right? You suggest an own Scribes Board where all writings can be posted (Compendium entries, Bestiary descriptions etc.) Sounds a reasonable idea... What do you think?

The cause of his existence is unknown. He just was. At the time of his coming one word blazed through the sky like the screeching of a thousand dying crows: "Nostrafus."
   He is a Giant among most, although against the sun he casts no shadow. His features are covered by a cloak of ash, and his sword is the tongue of death.To touch him is the sensation of being slowly roasted alive, as your skin and muscle withers from your bones. His soul feeds from pain and suffering.  He is the weilder of dark powers, and his name shall be written in blood among the annals of time.
   To embrace him as your lord and ruler is to live a life of great reward...your resistance shall result in your doom. He was sent to conquer... Join him or perish. He will consume all.

((tell me if it's a keeper or trash))

History of the Rinath

They appeared shortly after the War of the Chosen, rumored to be the failed weapon of a mad sorcerer.
Their history does not fall in with that of men or any other race for that matter, they prefer to be apart, so little is known about how they came into being.

They look similar to men, although they have amphibious features, such as scales and fins, as well as gills for surviving sustained amounts of time underwater. Tier cities villages and towns are all underground, in fact the only way in or out of them is through secret entrances through rivers swamps bogs and other such watercourses. Tier diets consist mainly of fish and vegetables, the growing of which is a secret which is kept by them only. At times they will come to the surface to hunt wild animals and feast upon them.  

Tier society is similar to that of bees or ants, they live in a somewhat hival community. Some are born to work as drones, usually trained as craftsmen, artisans, farmers, hunters, fisherman, etc., since the day they can walk. Others are taken from birth and raised as soldiers, their skills in archery, swordplay and warcraft unmatched  By any save perhaps the elves and a few humans. They do not often ride to war unless they themselves feel threatened, or there is a cause the queen feels worthy to fight.

To get into their cities without leave is death, but to be invited into one means that you are accepted into their culture. If their race is lacking(i.e. not enough of them) in an area, they will admit those who they deem fit into their society(humanoid of course, i.e., elves dwarves men, etc.) . That is all  know, but I am currently observing more of their culture, and will write more as i learn.

Hello again, Thorongil! Thanx for your ideas;)  

1) Nostrafus

Nice sketch for a start, however, I guess it would be a good idea to try to find a place for him somewhere in Santharian history, a place where he can/could be spotted and some sort of story, myth etc. If you can embed him more deeply in Santharia and elaborate a bit more we could add Nostrafus to the People section.

2) Rinath

Nice race too. Same questions here, although we learn a bit about their history already: But where do they live etc. What does the word "Rinath" mean? Concerning race creation you should also have a look at the races section and try to use this as a guide how to describe a race in detail (Appearance; Cosmological Origin; Mode of Living/Habits; Family, Society and Culture). Just try to find out more and collect as much information you can! The longer and more detailed, the better. Perhaps we can then finally convince one of our artists to draw a picture too etc. But such ar race would of course be a nice addition to the races section:)  

Little note on elves: Elves are skilled in archery, but not really in swordplay and warfare. Humans are - this is their nature. Elves are a very peace-loving race, even if they fought three major Sarvonian wars.

And now: Please observe some more, general! Nice to have you on board=)

I can come up with a name and description of Nostrafus' Domain, all i need is someone to draw it on a map and a place to put it on the world of santharia.
Any suggestions?

Well, where to put Nostrafus of course depends on the story/myth you'll attach to him. You can place him whereever you like, but I'd suggest to use some ancient time. You can then connect some piece of landscape to him e.g. a rock somewhere reminding the people of him - and it is still rumoured that Nostrafus becomes alive at night (or something similar to this). Just let your imagination rule...

He first appeared at the end of the The War of the Chosen, Summoned by a mad mage's thirst for conquest. He consumed the spirit of that poor creature.

  Since, he has made himself known in the annals of history only as a shadow or a demon, preying upon the helpless. Newly recovered tomes uncovered in the ruin of an ancient human settlement,  show a picture of a giant shrowded figure destroying their home with touches of his hands.

The tomes also speak of the death of a mighty warrior named "Gallion the Bold," perhaps a king or chieftain of these people, at the hands of Nostrafus.

The inscription reads "As Gallion Strode forward to challenge this mighty and accursed foe, he drew his mighty sword amd charged the creature. (It) laughed and brought it's own weapon to parry the blow. Gallion's sword splintered into many pieces. The creature then took it's two mighty hands and lifted him high above (It's) head. Gallion's cry was heard all throughout the land, a desperate cry full of agony, (words missing from tome)  of a mortal shall be heard again. His body withered to dust. As our warriors fall asunder we see no hope. Our only choice is to succumb to (it's) will. We are now slaves to the black one."

  He has moved in secret through the lands, although behind him lays a trail of sorrow and blood. Until recently, that is. Since the end of the war of the Chosen he has secretly began gathering followers, as he did to the writers of the tome. It is a cult calling themselves "The Children of Nostrafus" that meet  after the fall of night.

  They have come from all walks of life and all races, and worship him as a god. There are few reported sightings of him, because to be an unbeliever or enemy of his followers is to most likely die. His followers are fanatics, and would throw themselves on their weapons than betray their master.

 In recent times  statues or likenesses of him have been erected in most any kingdom of Santharia, as shrines, or warnings of his coming. Rumors are that he has his kingdom on an isle in the southern most sea of Santharia, which has recently been named the Sunless Sea, shrouded in a mist so black that it Chokes all light which passes through it, although those who have seen it and survived are mad from terror. Only those of "The Children" May enter without his leave.

The dark slave of doom,
No master can hold
He is death without Tomb
He feeds on your soul
The Master of hate
he serves the shadows
Who brings about Death,
With power unknown

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
