I was told to introduce myself so here I am! I heard about this site from an acquaintance from another site and decided to give a try and see how it worked. I am an amateur writer, meaning poet, songwriter, story weaver, and all that without getting money or fame.

 I see you have already shown interest in the area of weaponry.  Very good.  Very good indeed. 

Let me introduce myself, I am Seeker-- a fire mage and artist.  You see, being a mage is quite expensive, with all the spell powders and artifacts.  So I make my living by painting and moderating the miscellaneous forum with Valan.  And I spend the rest of my time travelling around Santharia searching.  Do not worry your little head about what it is I am seeking....just know this....I will find it.

Now a bit of advice or warning.  Many newbies have come into our midst ill prepared for the journey before them.  Put on your armour or cast a defensive spell if you must....and dive in.  Read up on anything and everything and be prepared for critique.  And most of all find what you love here and do it. 


Welcome to the dream Shadowwriter.

Greetings, Shadowwriter!

You will find little fortune here as well, as most of us who research for the Compendium must earn our own bread in other ways.  I myself am a bard, paid for my singing, my art and my time in travelling about the Kingdom of Santharia, but travel monies do not come from the Compendium!  However, the advantage of researching here is that there is always a warm bed and a hot meal at the Great Hall when you show up tired after weeks of wandering.   

As for fame and honour, those may indeed be won, though like all treasures they require much time and striving to acquire.  Let me counsel patience, dedication, and good humour as a means to that end, and remind you that perspiration is at least as valuable as inspiration when writing for the Compendium.

Please, have some of those delectable Timbers, with the cheese dip, or some Jhelhee if you prefer spicy flavours!   Welcome again....

Hello, Shadowwriter, and welcome to a Dream come true (blimey, that's a corny line!). Anyway, I'm pretty new myself so just jump in and get on. As Seeker said, read what's in the Compendium and try to make your entries fit it well - then you don't get humiliating critique along the lines of "That doesn't fit...Nor does that..nor does that...nor does that..."&c And that reminds me - I hope you weren't talking about anyone in particular Seeker?

Sorry - I'm mildly paranoid (although it's not everyone who's out to get you, mostly the animals and the plants - trust me, stay away from the inner greenhouses and if you value your sanity, keep out of the demonology department)

And have some choc-chip cookies.

May all your Dreams come true (Dammit! I promised myself no more cheesy catchphrases!)

Oi! What are these 'choc-chip' cookies of which you speak?   They sound like something trolls would eat, hmph, made of chalk and chips?    No, try these freshly-backed Kao-Kao and Doch Nut cookies.... fabulously delicious and authentically Santharian....

*A bearded Petros enters from the shadows wearing grubby blue over-alls, accompanied by a wheely-bucket and mop. Grumbling and mumbling, he pours some sawdust on the slime and mops up Seth's footprints before plodding off into the shadows, one large grudge heavier...*

*A man enters, wearing a long black cloak and a mask for a dance.* "Oh, thats the last time I attend one of those, those mo...oh hello! I'm Agran Velion..." *He rips off the mask* "I'm an apprentice, and responsible for whatever I want, although that seems to rest in misc. so I see Seeker a good bit, but I know less about him now than I did when I first met him.
