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 young, she walked the lands with some of the greatest Legends of the lands. Many are all but forgotten, but here are a few glances at our colorful past. From these, and others, Luxelle learned the ways of Elanthia and the art of The Cleric.

Quiar, Betelguese and Shlade, enchanters extraordinaire!
Betelguese, the man who bought a bridge for all his earthly goods! [and I assure you money meant EVERYTHING to him!]
Quiar, he who got a dead rat to tell him the secrets of the ancients.
Shlade, the mage who challenged the long training time required to learn the mystical arts – and won!

Amok, Omar, Shargo and Caver, Fighters of unparalleled honor!
Amok, the Hero who would not be King.
Omar, the impassioned and fun-loving one who tried to convince us that
Great Swords were the _only_ way to fight.
Shargo, a giant of a dwarf. No better friend could any ever ask.
Caver, he who found Quests when there were none, and always returned.

Dartan, Anthrax and Valeria, Rogues of Rogues!
Dartan, the dashing man who could talk himself out of anything he got caught doing, and did.
Anthrax, the thief who loved to enchant.
Valeria, she who walks unseen in across a room. She who says little, my friend.

  • Milady, and her unicorn
  • Tomas, the arbiter
  • Jarik, watch out for his knife

  • Danakris, shadows where ever he walked
  • Earendil, you might look like a mage, but you still have the heart of a warrior to me

  • Gira, whose laugh lit up a room with her sparkle
  • Kasigi, the multi-talented

We … left our mark on other people’s hearts and souls.

You all left your mark within me.

    Sometimes, memories just reach out and grab you, don’t they? Ah, I do miss Gherik. He did indeed balk at nothing.

    I have a box of GemStone 2 memories I have not been brave enough to open, mostly from the reunion in So. California that took place well after it (GS2) closed.
