  1. The Vision Bleak - A Curse of the Grandest Kind, a truly epic and bitter song. "When the moon is on the wave and the glow-worm in the grass, and the meteor on the grave and the wisp on the morass. When the falling stars are shooting and the answer'd owls are hooting, and the silent leaves are still in the shadow of the hill. Shall my soul be upon thine, with a power and with a sign. Though thy slumber may be deep, yet thy spirit shall not sleep. There are shades which will not vanish, there are thoughts thou canst not banish. By a power to thee unknown, thou canst never be alone. Thou art wrapt as with a shroud, thou art gather'd in a cloud, and forever shalt thou dwell in the spirit of this spell. Though thou seest me not pass by, thou shalt feel me with thine eye. As a thing that, though unseen, must be near thee and hath been. And when in that secret dread, thou hast turn'd around thy head. Thou shalt marvel I am not, as thy shadow on the spot. And the power which thou dost feel, shall be what thou must conceal, And a magic voice and verse, hath baptized thee with a curse. And a spirit of the air, hath begirt thee with a snare. In the wind there is a voice, shall forbid thee to rejoice. And to thee shall night deny, all the quiet of her sky, and the day shall have a sun which shall make thee wish it done. From thy false tears I did distil an essence which hath strength to kill. From thy own heart I then did wring, the black blood in its blackest spring. From thy own smile I snatch'd the snake, for there it coil'd as in a brake. From thy own lip I drew the charm which gave all these their chiefest harm. In proving every poison known, I found the strongest was thine own. By thy cold breast and serpent smile, by thy unfathom'd gulfs of guile, by that most seeming virtuous eye, by thy shut soul's hypocrisy. By the perfection of thine art which pass'd for human thine own heart. By thy delight in others' pain and by thy brotherhood of Cain. I call upon thee and compel thyself to be thy proper Hell! And on thy head I pour the vial which doth devote thee to this trial. Nor to slumber, nor to die, shall be in thy destiny. Though thy death shall still seem near, to thy wish, but as a fear. Lo, the spell now works around thee and the clankless chain hath bound thee. O'er thy heart and brain together, hath the word been pass'd, now wither!" Such an epic song... it never fails to give me goosebumps. Of course, it's by The Vision Bleak, so that's to be expected...
  2. Got it in the mail the day before yesterday.
  3. oh. ok
  4. Wilkommen! (No, I'm not German, I just like the language). Which Brandon Sanderson books have you read? Which ones are your favorites? Which magic system(s) is/are your favorite(s)? I haven't read any, but I have audible and listened to all of his works that are on there (except for the foreign language translations). My favorites are Mistborn (All of them), Stormlight Archive (of course), The Reckoners, and Elantris. My favorite magic systems are Allomancy, Feruchemy, Forgery, and Awakening. Oh, by the way, have you ever heard of the Mistborn Adventure Game?
  5. You could be a twinborn. We were talking about allomantic gold and feruchemical aluminum.
  6. Part 5 is now ready!!!!!!
  7. Scadrians don't actually speak English, so far as I'm concerned, I call it "fantasy book translation", where the characters' language is "translated" to English (or French, or German, or maybe even Finnish) by the author. For all we know, the word for "vindication" is pronounced in a way that the pun would make sense.
  8. @MasterJack Oh, cool. I wondered why you'd never had alcohol, so I checked your profile's birth date, and it turns out I'm actually 5 months and 8 days older than you. Cool to see I'm not the only 15-year-old with an interest in writing.
  9. I do! Never seem to finish them though...
  10. @SallyA welcome to the shard. It's really crazy here, but we manage. Try to avoid strangers who try to tempt you down dark alleys with cookies, the cookies contain soul-altering ingerdients! Anyways, which books/short stories by Brandon Sanderson have you read? I've read all (published) Cosmere stories (well, listened to them. I have Audible), The Reckoners Trilogy, all of the Alcatraz books that have already been written (can't wait for #6!), and The Rithmatist. I started Wheel of Time, but got distracted around book 11. I mostly post in the Creator's Corner, but I have a decent amount of theories to my name (three or so).
  11. It's very story-focused and rules-light. You roll 2-10 d6s (6-sided dice) and try to roll doubles. A roll where you fail to get doubles automatically fails, wheras a roll where you get doubles succeeds if you get a result high enough to match the difficulty (5 being the highest difficulty possible and 1 being the lowest). The reason 5 is the highest difficulty instead of six is because any sixes you roll are called "nudges", and are put aside. Nudges can be used used to do stuff like increase damage, add story benefits/dramatic flourishes, or negate complications resulting from failure (among other things). I'll explain more if you want me to, but I personally am finding that this post is getting too long.
  12. Hello, @Showman and welcome to the shard. I't really crazy in here, but we're mostly all friends. Have you ever heard of the Mistborn RPG?
  13. I don't always use them,but when I do It's usually a parody. For example, when I was writing a parody of dystopian YA stories, I used the pen name "Alex Bearfang" (don't bother looking for it, I haven't ever finished a book I started). In another work (a parody of crazed far-right fundamentalism made to be intentionally bad and self-contradicting) I used the wonderful pen name "Christian Reagan Eagleson". Neither of those pen names are even close to my real name.
  14. Odium + Ruin = War???
