The Five Powers- Chapter 1 (Part 2)

Adriane McQuiston

This is a story of fate and destiny dealing with all creatures of all lands. Chapters containing violence and gore will me marked so, otherwise it is safe to read anywhere. This Chapter does NOT have any of the sort, so it is safe for reading almost anywhere. Chapter 1: Here we meet Elshi, an elf of a rustic village who is trying to deal with the death of her parents. This chapter introduces a few of the main characters and sets up the story... Its kind of hard to summarize and to make it more interesting-sounding. ;p Note: This is still Chapter 1, but it was too large to submit in one file so I had to cut it in half. This is the second and final part to chapter 1. Please refer to the Dictionary file for translations.

Coming of Age

Erick Emert

Ahllie was eight at the time - in the manner in which one would count the journeys of the sun. For half her life she had anticipated this event. This night she would be leaving her parent's Rirchet Cordstead and movining into her own Cordstead with her Lobot brothers and sisters. This ceremony was the single most identifying moment in the life of a Vigroth child. Lobot Cord had spent the past six years growing and learning. During that time they acquired the incredible focus of 'Rock' and the powerful DeepChat skills of Gibwa Rach, learned through 'Mirror'. Even at this age they continued their training as they mastered the Vigroth skills used in attack and defense through such games as 'Seek,' 'Go-Find,' and 'Sprawl.' Since childhood they ate, swam, shot bow, wrestled, played, ran, laughed, cried, and learned together as they experienced each other in ways it would be hard for OutSiders like us to understand. Yet by shinedown each day they were back in their parents Cordstead so they could watch the examples of their elders and thus remove any doubt as to the value of the Vigroth ways. We need not go into the preparations, their dress, nor the background of the ceremony. Ahllie shall simply sing it for you in her own words, exactly as she sang it that night. (This poem was published by Fantasy, Folklore, & Fairytales)
