High Fantasy Nomads: Let’s Fix This Silliness

Outsiders, I understand. You come to our hidden land expecting wonders and terrors, warriors made peerless by their hardship, the wisdom of wasteland sages. You have been misled. Pop quiz: what’s the best way to learn things in a world which predates the telegraph, let alone the Internet? Is it: 1. Sit on your ass […]

–DATA EXPURGATED: SPITE’S HARVEST–

–DATA EXPURGATED– –Incoming transmission: Lambent Halcyon –Lambent, Phasewhisper acknowledges. Something to say, old one? –Merely a musing on the Prophet’s idiosyncrasies. Peerless insight into the deepest truths, and yet, such ignoble dross-mire as this archive. –Well, I’ve never seen any evidence that anyone is immune to writing, or saying, some truly foolish things out of […]

–DATA EXPURGATED: SPITE’S FALLOW–

–DATA EXPURGATED– –Transmission Incoming: Lambent Halcyon –Phasewhisper receives. What’s on your mind, Lambent? And don’t you dare answer ‘everything’. –You accuse both unfairly and inaccurately. I never phrase my answers so efficiently; I would say ‘creation’s sum total.’ –You fucker. –Only when I create enough headway to lay my duties aside for a few hours. […]

Written in Blood

For me, the answer to the question I’m about to ask is yes. I make no apologies for that, but I don’t believe it applies to everyone. I even admit my answer may become “no” someday. This will be among my shorter entries; I have little enough to say for now. So: does emotional turmoil […]

–DATA EXPURGATED: REAVEMIND SOLILOQUY–

–DATA EXPURGATED– –Outgoing Transmission: Lambent Halcyon –Transmission Accepted –Lambent, query: the other archives with similar themes to this pair, should I wipe them as well? –Offer me your analysis first, Condemnator. –Negative. More of value there. Less acid, and enough context to stop what’s there from doing too much harm. They should be left as […]

–DATA EXPURGATED: UNTEMPERED ABANDON–

–DATA EXPURGATED– –Outgoing Transmission: Lambent Halcyon –Transmission Accepted –Lambent, found the last one. The beginnings of some true insight, here. Rough, spotty, but even so, I’m seeing the faintest traces of the First’s mind take shape. And the first ever instance of the “Z” word, as well; wonders on wonders. –As I promised, these archives […]

–DATA EXPURGATED: BELLICOSE HYMNCARVER–

–DATA EXPURGATED– –Outgoing Transmission: Lambent Halcyon –Transmission Accepted –You offer further musings, Phasewhisper? –Affirmative. Seeing a certain pattern now. Started with seeing people like this profane the arts they loved, didn’t it? Yet, I’m also feeling… jealousy. Must’ve stung beyond all reason, seeing someone do something they loved so poorly, yet be rewarded better than […]

–DATA EXPURGATED: SILVERSHEAR DOWNFALL–

–DATA EXPURGATED– –Incoming Transmission: Lambent Halcyon –Lambent, Phasewhisper acknowledges. Odd way to start. You want me to understand something? –On the contrary, my young comrade, I am curious as to your thoughts. –Well… I suppose I’m glad to know the Prophet always cared about martial truth. So much of their identity seems to have been […]
