Hi, Kaylin :) Glad to see you're still at it – i see the Kairula pages flourishing, and even attracting support from other artists, which is always great. So congratulations are in order! Meanwhile, i would like to ask you (but never mind if it leads you to spoil any plot twists or anything) whether the Shadow will be approached more in-depth. So far, i could only spot a cryptic (ominous, even ;) ) reference to it as being the place where no one in his/her right mind should go, but i would indeed be curious as to what manner of beasts lurk therein. Would it all be a sort of Bizarro-Kairula, similar to the original but deformed in some way, or even an Anti-Kairula, or much much worse, some nook or cranny of the Abyss? Would humans (greedy as they ever are) try to tap into its frightful energies? Would some native mage / magic creature come back from it with a vengeance? Would the Shadow find some way of 'spilling over' onto Kairula (and Earth, via infected/-ing portals) as a sort of consuming contagion? etc. etc. :) (donating ideas, since i have no HM creation to donate as of yet)

@Ximero:
You…you…MIND READER! That's exactly how I see it!

SUPER SECRET SPOILER:

There have been several wars fought over the history of Kairula, and the most recent one, less than a century ago, was when someone opened a portal in a total eclipse…

I'll leave the rest to your imagination – for now…

Ximero mentioning the Shadow got me thinking about monsters…

The Shadow: http://kairula.wikispaces.com/Magic (part of the Portals section) and also mentioned in the previous link

Voted! And thanks for the info links (we're all lazy…) – though i would make the slight objection that (unless i'm not recalling it right) the Shadow is more like 'the dark side of the Force', or the dimension/plane that sustains it (which, scary and unknown as it may be, arguably could contain some (former?) beauty as well – cf. Jotunheim in 'Thor' ;) ). So maybe pitting monsters against a force/dimension is a bit inconsistent. That said, though, i'd pay good money to see a battle between Eosi and Gloamglozers :D

Yeah, me too. And actually, the Shadow is a living entity – I think. It might be composed of hundreds of smaller entities, though – like every shadow, everywherehttp://www.heromachine.com/blog/wp-content/forum-smileys/sf-wink.gif

Also, the Gloamglozers are more of a force of nature as well – they're basically Void elementals, living embodiments of the element/plane/dimension. :P

Ah, my bad. I quite like the Shadow and the Void (as defined above) existing in the Kairulaverse – together with the Eosi making it all way much more than a medieval-ish (at least pre-Industrial Rev.) fantasy (since it has some clearly sci-fi elements as well – so kudos for that). Also, way to go with the b&w circus, looking forward to seeing the series complete :)

The thing with Kairula is that it doesn't need an Industrial Revolution, when it's already had a magical one. Laugh
The quality of life is about the same as modern-day Terra, if not better.

PROGRESS UPDATE:
Added more info to the "Uses of Magic" section at the bottom of the Human Magic page. It also has a picture to illustrate one of the sub-sections.

Also, why does the poll I posted a week ago have only two votes? I can has more opinions? http://www.heromachine.com/blog/wp-content/forum-smileys/sf-frown.gif

Edit: On an unrelated note, I have finally figured out to post links with custom text. Yay!

Thanks. Cool I probably won't use it, but thanks for the offer. You forgot to vote, by the way.

Speaking of selkies…I wonder what happened to my Dblade prize, a seal tail? Jeff added some other dblade items a while back, didn't he?

Love the selkie! Looks kind of Lovecraftian!

Ah, reasons. We all have them, at times.

Great job, I like the background you chose for her.

Attention to details. The little things can add up and can be the difference between a good design and a bad one.
