Re: BDI Setting Pieces: Moving Forward

I think there's a number of settings that woukd qualify as legacy material that haven't seen the light of day or little use in BDI's lifespan. Griffon's Aerie and Leturia (I can see these were first to go to the dusty bookshelf) -Tollor, Elluria and smaller Southland Provinces -Rashnad -Panguro -Xiu...

Glossary: The Rastra - A powerful druid cult within Griffon's Aerie that has great influence over the ruling class and Imperial Diet, all the way to the king himself.

Confessions of a Disillusioned Scholar

Serkos, I write this journal in cipher to protect its contents should this leather binding find it's way into the hand or talon of individuals who would sooner see me hang or burned for speaking such words that, at least by rite of the Rastra cult whom still rules over all, would be denounced as he...

Re: Common Foods & Beverages

Dukak: A thick coffee beverage of Rondis, resembling the sort of coffee one might find in RL Turkey or Algeirs. A strong mix of bittersweet, in the BDI it's often served half-and-half with warm milk in a pot or ramekin. Good for pick-me-ups and killer hangovers. Grifola: The iconic beverage of Grif...

Re: An Unwelcome Marauder

The Sergeant looked on to Telothir, puzzled at his comments of soldiers eating the griffon, then repulsed by the suggestion. There was far too many injured and dead to tend to, he thought, than any need concern themselves with the actions of those who were lucky enough to remain unharmed. Regardless...

Re: An Unwelcome Marauder

The air is filled with an eerie stillness, after the raging cacophony of the battle, the silence that falls upon the mountain after the ice dragon's demise is all too unsettling. Smoke rises up from the ground where dragonfire had scorched it, and there are frozen remains of what had probably been m...

Re: An Unwelcome Marauder

The ancient dragon had summoned the last few reserves of his magic in order to strike down his biggest foe, the younger red dragon of fire, and hoping in doing so, if the blow would not have killed her outright, would have stunned her long enough for him to work his vengeance on the smaller men and ...

Re: An Unwelcome Marauder

The summoning of the elements is building, the storm that the great ice dragon manifested upon those icy slopes was beyond compare, a typhoon like this wasn't normally seen but out in the further northern reaches beyond the Rhondis desert. The winds howl mercilessly as the black clouds become a dark...

Re: An Unwelcome Marauder

Hawke's spell of protection had not been called in vain, the size of the ice dragon's claw should have easily smote the entire group of horsemen in one stroke, yet less than half of them had fallen, and those still on their feet gathered what horses they could and rallied to prepare for a second ass...

Re: An Unwelcome Marauder

Captain Palandra's Uncle had lived in these mountains, harsh and bitter as they were. She doubted he'd faced such a terrible foe before, but he had told many stories of dare she'd admired in her youth. But a dragon as terrible as this one? She doubted he had faced such danger, and wondered her prosp...
