The Fate of The First Worlde

(Outside of time, Squire Bluffs) Once upon a time, in a place very far away, there came a magical time and place – the First Worlde of Elanthia, (OOC: GemStone ][). Populated by heroes bigger than life and then by the terrible creatures that plagued them, the little hamlet of Squire Bluffs sat apart and safe from a collapsing world around them. The citizens of the First Worlde were brave pioneers. Bardic magic had not been...

The Scroll of Memories

(Squire Bluffs, Some-when in a distant past) Not exactly a story, but a work in progress of the people of Squire Bluffs. Do not take offense if I have left off your name, because GemStone II, The First Worlde, was 20-plus years ago. I invite you to add anyone I have overlooked in a comment, please. Likewise, please take no offense if there is no phrase next to your name, my grey matter only held on to so much… When Luxelle was...

An Old Journal Page

(A page out of a very old journal from Squire Bluffs, undated … there was, as yet, no reason to count time…)   When I was young, the world was young. We feared Swamp Giants, … and people were injured even by the orcs. There was only one level of the dungeons. The castle was not yet lost, … And you could still fall off the bridge there! Vicious Cave Trolls killed the hapless; those doomed to wander. …...

When He Smiles

(Before recorded time – at Squire Bluffs in the First Worlde) Backstory: There’s nothing like youth and young love, right? Stars in your eyes, head over heels crushed on someone. On the road to the Old Swamp, just before the turn off to the Lost Road that once led to the Lost Castle (literally, it was … gone, lost), there gathered a small group of people. The young priestess hopefully sang this song. She was so shy...

The Old Man

The old man had various homes in the First Worlde, but finally, he wandered out into the woods past the Roper Pool, way out in the forest, and made his home in a tree. There he sat in a rocker with his cat. The dull trolls in the forest could not climb trees, and almost everyone left him alone there because of it. He would tell you stories. Here is one of them: “A story? Hmmm, let’s see. Say, who sits on the Council of...

Lost to the Dark

(Somewhen … Squire Bluffs) “Must you go?”, she asks, her eyes speaking more than the words could say. He nods, and turns to leave. Glancing back over his shoulder he looks her in the eyes and moves his hands ever so slightly. With a haunted look in his eyes, almost pleading, his image fades in front of her and he is gone. Now she can weep.   With twinkling eyes he smiles and speaks. I listen, or appear to be,...
