Snippets


I have been muddling along.  I am still struggling with personnel problems.  Here is just the snippets of what I have been working on...

The Barony of Stormtonne
Part of the Kingdom of Danaan, the Barony of Stormtonne is the smallest barony as well as the youngest.  It is also the most powerful barony due to its influence with the eladrin, its magic and the fact that the Order of the Thorn is headquartered here.

The current Baron is a man named Aylen danTaven.  His wife is the eladrin named Beyissa Skysilver.  Skysilver is the English for Faleath, and they named themselves Skysilver in honor of the wedding to cement the union.  Sorica Faleath was teacher of Edam danTaven, the second human to learn magic.  It was her love of Edam and his twin sister that led to her to teach others and her line followed suit.  The entire Skysilver clan is located near the barony.

The northernmost barony is located near the mighty edifice known as The Spear of Laan.  It measures almost a kilometer in diameter and rises to an incredible 143.62 kilometers in height.  It radiates magic and explorations to its height shows the magic ends at that elevation.  It was built several thousands of years ago by a concern of dwarves and eladrin.  The Spear of Lann is located right in the middle of the tonne (eladrin word for “castle”) as it rises up and out of a copse of the great worol (“world”) trees that can rise up to over kilometer in height.  The barony is built up along The Spear of Lann and occupies many of the lower levels.  The barony spreads out and many of the nearby worol trees are the home to the baron, his people and the eladrin.  Great airship docks are located along the spear.


Miranda Taven and her brother Jack where the first of their line.  They were both of the archaeological and anthropological fields of study.  They were fascinated by the eladrin and the magic that they worked.  Miranda eventually married Markan Andahar becoming the first queen and they both formed the framework for what would become the Order of the Thorn. 

Dark Elves
The dark elves are seriously thinking about the Spartan Blooded.  They have been using the goblins for years in a parody of a eugenics program, but the goblins have been played out.  They usually produce very stupid offspring.  Humans however are proving to be very excellent candidates producing very excellent slaves and soldiers.  They have been kidnapping various humans from around the world and are crossbreeding them with goblins, dwarves and other humanoid creatures to produce the best offspring.

Goblins
Goblins are the result of the dark elves crossbreeding eugenics program.  For example the goblins who have the Thick Skin stunt are usually known as Red Caps.  They are tough and bloodthirsty lot, the tallest goblin species and the dark elves use them as shock troops.

The Barony of Holdingford
Holdingford lies in a great rift valley and is built upon the bones of a dwarven settlement.  Mining the great veins of ore that lie within make the Barony a very rich one.  Richer that Crosstaal though it does not have the great foundries.  Many small settlements abound around the rift that has a large river that runs through it.
