If you didn't want to carry a large staff around with you, you could have the pole come apart in sections, and each section could go in a special pocket in a cape or coat.

How does it enlongate? Does the bearer carry a staff around with him that screws in to the handle of the sword? I haven't seen Hellboy, but I've always been fascinated by combination weapons.

Welcome! Glad to have you back.

Expanded the Overview, and made sure it had the right title.

If you are talking about RL horseshoes, the goal of the game is to get the horseshoes to land around a pole stuck in the ground. May people give "half points" if it is within one horseshoe length of the pole, leading to the phrase "'close' only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades." Each player has 3 horseshoes, and they take turns throwing. Once all horseshoes have been thrown, the players approach the "horseshoe pit", where the pole sticks out of the ground, and is surrounded by sand, and count up their points. A full horseshoe game can have 2, 5, 10 or as many rounds as has been decided beforehand. In the event of a tie, a tie-breaker round is played by the people who are tied.

Yes there is. Unfortunatley, my dulcimer is currently unplayable. I am working on getting one, and will have it ordered within a week.

Does anyone have any more comments? I'd really like to finish this.

Perhaps Herbarium writers could have a frame of vines with little white and blue floweres. And bestiary writers could have  a necklace of teeth for a frame. (Or would that be Orcs?)

Alrighty. No problem. I tried to delete it, but it said you are not allowed to delete your own topics on this board.

Could I make a little comment? Gold panners don't usually find nuggets, if by that you are talking of something from the size of a dice to that of a softball. The gold that is discovered by panning is usuallythe size of small to large crumbs, as if you were eating stale bread, and you left crumbs everywhere.

Also, they are usually not nuggets, but flakes. Today, it is very easy to find gold if you're panning, but increadibly difficult to make a living panning.

What the miners of the gold rush would do, was to pan to find a stream with a lot of gold, and then they would head upstream and dig a mine their. Alternatively, one of the most popular methods was sluice mining. In sluice mining, they would divert all or part of a river or stream through a sluice box. That is a wooden canal made of wooden boxes place each a little lower than the one before, so that the water fountained from one to the other, and the gold settled to the bottom. If you didn't want to do hydrolic mining (which ruins the landscape), and wanted to avoid mines, a sluicing system would probably be the best way to go, since the water is diverted for a few feet, but then can be sent right back to the stream or river. I've included 2 pictures of sluiceboxes I got off of Wikipedia. You couldn't use them in your entry, but they should give you a visualization of what I'm talking about.

This is really interesting. I have a couple grammer nit picks, but feel free to ignore them. Grammer is by no means my strong suit.

He stepped forward and steam rose from a hole in the world, followed by a spray taller than the tallest trees of water so hot that should tea be made from it, it could not be drank for one week.

I think it should be drunk, not drank.

In years hence, only the most experienced and well trained smiths work to make Doom steel swords.

I think it should be years since, rather than years since, since "hence" carries a connotation of time still in the future at the time of writing.

It really is an awesome entry, and a very interesting read.

This picture might work for that White Lady. The only potential problem I can see is that her location is up in the mountains, and in the picture the mountains are in the distance.

Per Talia's suggestion, I have fixed the skyline. I really like the way she is very transparent. I think she is more hinted than clearly shown.

I've uploaded two pictures. The first one is the adjusted skyline. The second one has the adjusted skyline, but I also did some stuff to make it less "photographic" and more "painted" looking.

Anyway, if anyone has more comments or suggestions, please let me know. I'm not a perfect artist, but I will give it a try, and if it turns out that I can't make it what it should be, I'll either take it off, or hand it off to someone who knows what they are doing.

I just finished rereading your entry. It looks very good. One question only. Who discovered the effects of Daylong tea, or has it been known for all of recorded history?

I was actually thinking it might be something simmilar, although I did not know about the "White Ladies". Do any of them appear amoung fields of flowers?

Hey, not to toot my own horn or anything, but if you were looking for something small and colourfull to work your way up from, the Inkfish would make a very nice picture! Or Geodes! I know I don't have any kind of seniority, but give them a look, and see if they interest you. They definitely fascinate me.
