Jus a few days before, a body was found near the shore of our fields. After much research I concluded that it was no mere animal, but a beast! One that has been dubbed 'The Landshark Arkaknox'. It is my duty as Sheriff to take on this beast, but alas, together we stand as we have always done so. Any brave Weefolk or adventurer is welcomed to help in this endeavor. Join me, as we set off to slay this spawn of Arugula, curse her name!" (OOC: Tonight Thursday 25th at 5pm EST, meet up in the town center)

  7. ~* A poem to Garedyn the Green *~ Once upon a time, when legends where born Deep into the forests, a myth was forged Anbella's chosen, Nature serene A Dwarf, named Garedyn the Green Warrior by code, and Leader by heart Scholar in spirit, and in magical art No fiend could best him, the Dwarf so fair Axe in hand, his eyes would glare A Friend amongst Weefolk, King of Dwed Scourge of fiends, his fate would end He brought down the titan, the ground would quake Alas, for emeralds never break
  8. " I' cannae be..." Breasal said as he sat down onto a chair, such terrible news were too much for him "Garedyn my friend, ya who were the most 'onorable o' the Dwed, ya 'ave fallen into the e'ernal slumba'..." he'd then fill a cup of the best mead he had in his burrow "Tae ya Garedyn The Green, Kin' o' Dwed, Slaya' o' Evil.... tae ya ol' pal" he said as he poured the cup of mead outside his burrow "A 'ope ya're wa'c'in' o'er yar kin, we'll mee' again one day, fer noo res' yar weary soul" with that said, Breasal returned to his burrow and quickly grabbed pen and paper.
  9. *Breasal would be reading his newspaper in the morning as always "Ah righ', my favori'e newspapa'. Le's see wha's goin' on in Krugmar". As he read the newspaper his eyes would widen when it came to the Shaman lodge section; seeing a back profile of himself and his wife Mimosa. "A cannae believe i'..... A'M IN KAKTUZ WEEKLI!!! 'OLY SHI'E DEEEEAAAR!!!! GE' THE CAMERA WE'RE IN KAKTUZ WEEKLI!!!" he said in excitement*

  12. ~* Halfling Spiritualism *~ [1] Preface: Halfling Spiritualism differs in that Halflings don’t worship spirits the same way they do with Knox or Billy Bob. Instead, Halfling spirits are considered living forces of certain characteristics and aspects. For example, merrymaking is a positive aspect of everyday life, as such the spirit of merrymaking isn’t a certain person but the force of merrymaking itself. As such, one doesn’t necessarily pray to the spirit of merrymaking, but invokes it with feasts and festivals. Using even more simple terms, one doesn’t need to pray to the spirit of foxes, just by having a symbol of a fox is enough to invoke and respect it. History of Halfling Spiritualism: It is uncertain when exactly did Spiritualism begin to be practiced by Halflings, or who introduced it, though through oral tradition it was around the time of Dunshire. Looking at just a few written records, we know the names of the spirits and how they were invoked, using everyday words in that time; in simple terms the names of these spirits are what they represent. Since then it has been an accepted faith within Halfling society, with some individuals building dedicated shrines to certain spirits. In more recent years, new spirits and notable individuals have appeared, becoming new additions to the list. Traditions and Worship: [2] The way Halflings worship the spirits is the same as you would find in other Spiritualist societies, with shrines, offerings etc. The historical word for Spiritualism is ‘Gāstsiden’ and ‘gāstberend’ for shaman. When praying to a spirit it is imperative that devotees utter the word Lup, as it is the proper way to do so. Sermons and religious festivals are also held in order to appease them. The act of the will of the spirits is slightly different, instead of actively doing tasks i.e. going on a hunt in order to appease to the spirit of it, Halflings simply try to uphold what the spirits represent. Sacrifices vary from individual followers, most Halflings tend to use food, booze and pipeweed as offerings, with some offering mina as a way to get rid of them. One tradition that some Halflings do, in order to appease to specific spirits, is to decorate their homes or certain items with motifs of that spirit. Major Halfling deities: These are the gods Halflings may worship daily Billy Bob, The Great Farmer (note: this is how Halflings view Billy Bob) He is considered the creator of the world and of every descedant race [3.1] Lord Knox, The Pumpkin Lord Created by Billy Bob, he is the guardian of the Halfling race [3.2] Arugula, The Squid Monster Created by Billy Bob, she is the destroyer of the Halfling race [4] Halfling Animal Spirits: These are the animals that are culturally significant and invoking their spirits brings good fortune Fyxen the Fox The fox spirit is said to bless Halflings with cleverness and stealth Hara the Rabbit The rabbit spirit is said to bless Halflings with fertility and agility Frosc the Frog The frog spirit is patron and guardian of Frogtoppia, he blesses Halflings with wisdom and good health Apa the Ape The ape spirit is said to bless Halflings with dexterity and athleticism Yrchoun the Hedgehog The hedgehog spirit is said to bless Halflings with
