o you want to know about me eh? - Well, my life is nothing to smile about, as it was rough growing up and still has its many roughs and bumps along the way. My family was constantly at each other's throats, duking it out like World War II. It was because of this, my writing career had an early start. I needed a way to express myself to those around me and I found words written on a page did that best for me. I never really got along with my parents and was always in trouble for some reason or another. It wasn't until I was about 16 or 17 that I took it more of a step further. But that is another story in and of itself.

After a while, my writing gradually died out and I rarely spent any time developing it further. It wasn't until my freshman year that I found the passion for it once again. Thanks to a group of people, who later became my enemies, my writing once again picked up speed with co-authoring a book - which is still in the works. It was also around this time I was introduced to the role-playing and fantasy scene. Through a simple and quick instruction, I picked it up naturally and was dying to get my hands on more than what we had going on between us 5 friends. I searched the internet, stumbling across many different sites but never really satisfied with what they had to offer. In July of 2003, my search ended and I found Santharia. It didn't take me long to fall in love with the people and the environment and I became fast friends with many of its players.

The road to where I am at now was not an easy one, and included many learning days along the way. Being taught lessons by your peers is hard and often painful, yet it is all worth it in the end. I quickly got as involved as I could with the coming and goings on the board. Becoming a Mini-Mod early on and soon after CD Mod. Yet, that journey included a story, co-modding, more Characters than you can count on one - if not two - hands, countless discussions in IRC with the administrators on different board developing issues and a consistent learning experience. There is so much to partake on the site but biting off more than you can chew is easy to do yet not recommended.

Real life issues have always managed to steal me away from this beloved site from time to time, yet it never fails to pull me back and welcome with open arms. The experiences I have had with various positions on the RPG board have taught me a lot about life in general and what it takes to be a person with such power and leadership. It is not for the faint of heart by any means. I guess this is more of a "Thank You" than a biography but I wanted to express how much Santharia and everyone who is a part of it means to me.

Santharia is home. Loves <3

The Best Bestiary Entry Award 2011
Winning Entry: "The Butterfly Dragon"

Kalina has confirmed her mantle as Dragon Mistress of Santharia with her entry of The Butterfly Dragon. Believed to be the smallest dragon on the surface of Caelereth, this dragon is big on power, on whimsy, on wonder and on heart and proves beyond a doubt that it isn't the size of the dragon in the fight that matters, it is the size of the fight in the dragon. Kalina's beautifully crafted entry is filled with evocative descriptions, imaginative turns of phrase and a cool legend to boot. An excellent entry, worthy of the mantle of Best Bestiary Entry - 2011.
