Lady of Storms 5 – Time Magic

Ch 7 - Amelia on battlefieldAt the center of the vast swamp of Glenumbra Moors lay the site of an ancient battle between the Direnni and the Alessians. They called it a fort, but there really wasn’t much to it except for a few rotting log walls and a cave with a heavy door. Today it was teeming with people, mostly mages, who stood outside the gate, peering onto the battlefield or casting spells. A large tent stood off to one side, and smaller ones were placed nearby.

An officious-looking orc stood near the gate, and Amelia went up to her. “I’m looking for whoever is in charge,” she said. “I’m from Aldcroft.”

These guys are the type of creatures that aren’t too powerful on their own, but they tend to gang up on you.

Crystal Shards – Magic: the Gathering, ESO Style

Crystal Shards

This is one of the hubby’s favorite spells, and the picture features his OC Vallanil doing serious damage to that poor wolf. Okay, the wolf was going to kill him too, but still.

The Wilderking – Magic: the Gathering, ESO Style

Wilderking

This is a character from one of my favorite questlines in the game. The Wilderking is a powerful forest deity. As his power wanes, he is ready to pass his throne off to another, Aranias.

Aranias – Magic: the Gathering, ESO Style

Aranias

The questline with Aranias and the Wilderking is one of my favorites. She’s a lonely character, shunned by her own parents because of her extreme power, and she gets a chance at a new life.

Lady of Storms 4 – Aldcroft

LOS 4 - Amelia and ChamberlainIt was raining when Amelia arrived in Aldcroft, although in her mind, even the rain couldn’t make the place more depressing. The townspeople would say it was a thriving hub of the shipping industry, but while cargo ships did indeed dock there, the village itself was a sty: a few hovels centered around an open-air market and dock area, with a lighthouse off to the south and a handful of campsites thrown in for good measure. A dozen or so decent houses were scattered here and there, but they only served to make the rest of the town seem more desolate. It rested at the southeastern edge of the Glenumbra Moors; and with Iliac Bay directly to the east, there wasn’t a lot of dry land, only a series of small islands connected to each other by footbridges. Two roads led out of town and met up with major thoroughfares that connected it to Daggerfall and Camlorn, but both were rife with crocodiles. The humidity was oppressive year round, not to mention the stench of wood rot and fish. She had been used to it growing up, but it was amazing how being away for a few years could make a person forget. Either that, or it had gotten worse over time.
