The End of the 2015 Adventurer's Crown

The Forgotten One Podė has been utterly vanquished! The long process to cleanse Lindequalmė will soon begin! Let us congratulate the five heroes who overcame nearly impossible odds and helped change the course of Raiaeran history:

First Place: The Mongrel
Second Place: BlackAndBlueEyes
Third Place: Alyssa Snow
Fourth Place: Erirag The Poet
Fifth Place: Cards Of Fate

And also, a big thank you to all of the writers and characters who were involved in this year's Adventurer's Crown. Without your enthusiasm for wanting to further your stories and get involved with shaping Althanas's canon, this event would never have come to pass.

A big thank you to Dirks for judging all of the tournament as well.

The Crimson Hand vs. The Gilded Lily - Round One

After being overthrown, imprisoned, and tortured by his two most trusted lieutenants, Lichensith Ulrokė has been broken and reformed. Released from his bonds, he has made the call to test the loyalties of his Master of Secrets--the faun-whore Philomel van der Aart, leader of her own network of spies called the Gilded Lily. Will Lichensith go too far in his actions? Will Philomel's loyalties waver? Follow the whole saga here!

The 2015 Serenti Invitational

Althanas's premiere one-on-one battle tournament recently wrapped up its first round, featuring several of Althanas's most prominent characters tearing each other apart in spectacular fashion!

While we wait for the judgements to come down, catch up on all the action right here!

Editor's pick for must-read material - Dissinger vs. Abomination: Seth Dahlios, hot on the heels of a regiment of Ixian Knights, follows the trail only to find a graveyard littered with corpses and the Cult of Blessed Torture's favorite son, Draug Remi. The Lavinian Hex Mage and the Homunculus Horror throw just about everything they have at each other in an epic clash of Althanian titans!

Other Site Happenings

First of all, we would like to extend a welcome to all of the new members that have stopped by our little corner of the Internet lately! If you haven't done so already, don't be afraid to pop into the introductions forum and say hello! We don't bite--and the members that do... well, they're currently scheduled for re-education and will be ready to engage with the public in less than two months.

Going on right now in The Flying Stone Tavern forum, there are quite a few little forum games going on! Share your gaming information, ask other people questions in-character, and more! They serve as fun distractions, and as a way for Lye to trick Dirks into thinking that site activity is up! (His job does depend on it, just so you know. So go participate.)

And last, but certainly not least, don't forget to slide on over to The Writers' Workshop and do a workshop! It's a great way to familiarize yourself with other writers' works and to help them improve their abilities! You can critique as much or as little as you wish--it's completely up to you.
