Blavet Jowren (Yow-ren) was born in 4512 AFTL (After Faster Than Light) by the human calendar. He was born on the ISS (InterStellar Ship) Dominiot which was a small freighter owned by his parents. He was not just born on the ship, however, he was born while in FTL.
Blavet was an emris. Emris had three eyes that were large black orbs with the middle eye being slightly above the plane of the other two. The race was covered in fur that was found in all hues of blues, greens, and in-between. They had a vaguely human build with two slits for a nose and human hands where both their hands and feet would be. They also had a long prehensile monkey-like tail that was usually around one and a half meters in length. Continue reading
These are descriptions of my Fantasy setting I’ve been calling Nevrelocke Universe. These are original stories inspired by playing role-playing games like D&D and HARP that take place in a setting that I’ve come up with. On the surface, these stories don’t seem to have any connection but they all take place in a single timeline in locations that are connected to each other. Continue reading
[The eradication of the Erdaz has completed. The Kindness and The Jester meet up on a small planet near to Nevre.]
“Jester,” Simisola began, “I feel that before we took to the stars things were more simple.”
The Jester walked two alcoholic beverages to the table and set them down. “Well, perhaps it was, but I find it more exciting this way.” He leaned back and took a long pull of his beverage. “Sometimes I miss knowing every important person, but the urge to find someone newly important, someone new. That is more exhilarating than knowing who’s next well in advance.”
Simisola downed half of her drink. “The way this galaxy is, there isn’t a lot of kindness around. I get to shine an even brighter light on a person’s day in comparison to the darkness, but it gets me down sometimes. Like my purpose on that front is fruitless and unachievable.” Continue reading
A large Erdaz roared in pain and collapsed onto the ground. The strange amalgamation of muscles gripped in their death throes. A giant boulder had landed on the creature’s neck, breaking it in twain. Dozens of soldiers rushed away from the impact zone. In death an Erdaz began to slowly release all of the life force it had absorbed so sometimes soldiers who had been wounded would have their wounds closed as the Erdaz died, but if you were caught under the falling Erdaz there was no saving you.
Kemp slowly approached Amir, smiling wearily. “Well, friend. That’s one more down.” His smile became a grimace, “the casualties were high this time. We lost several dozen veterans.” Continue reading
The rasaz hail from the mostly-molten planet Rasazakina. They live on the southern pole where the planet has most of its solid landmass. Experts are unsure as to why exactly so much of the surface has refused to cool and harden.
Ape-like in appearance the rasaz usually have red-hued fur and are around eight feet tall. Unlike earth gorillas their chests are covered with fur. They are slow for their size; at walking speed a human can easily keep up with a walking rasaz. Their arms are strong enough to rip the arms off almost any other species in the galaxy, but the rasaz that does this is considered to have gone mad. The female of the species is slightly larger and stronger. Xenologers have stated this evolved in the ancient past when the males would be required to defeat a rasaz female in order to mate with them.
While they are mostly pacifists many species still think of them as hostile and reckless. There are many rasaz who act as mercenaries and bounty hunters, ruining the reputation of the species as a whole.
One famous rasaz was given a honor medal for saving the lives of fifty children by holding up the broken support beam at the center of a mixed-species daycare for an hour. Unfortunately the medal was awarded posthumously because the rest of the building collapsed before she could be saved.
“Casting spells directly at the Erdaz is ineffective, but casting a spell to affect the environment around an Erdaz or to drop a large object on an Erdaz works perfectly. As such we will be learning non-direct combat spells.” The Sorcerer began, her hat in hand. “Now, somebody try to transmute my hat into a shard of metal. You there, the woman in the back. Haru, I believe. I know you just found how to harness the magic of Nevre, but you cannot harm me.” Continue reading
Haru awoke and pulled the softly glowing tracker out from under her shirt. She went outside to the morning sun and saw Dohner meditating on the dewy grass. She approached lightly. “Apparently somebody’s tracking me.”
“Tracking you? How is that possible?” Dohner asked, opening his eyes and looking at the glowing crystal embedded in the necklace.
“Somebody must’ve got my signal and sent out a rescue ship.” Haru pulled the orbital communicator from her pant’s pocket. “I’m going to make a call.”
Ahlev stuck his head out of the small hut he was assigned over the night and looked quizzically at Dohner who gave a short explanation.
