The Traveler

Brian Carpenter

Just a short story I made up, if ya think I should make more of it, leave me a comment or two :)

Cape Mortifer

Guillermo García

My most symbol laden work so far. It is the story of Hecules's death and of an incident regarding a flaming (literaly) cloak. here is a list of the meanings of most of the symbols. Second regret of hydra’s hate: Hecules wet his arrows in the Hydra’s blood and was told he would twice regret it. Styx’s edge: edge of death Apollo kills kin: he is half brother to Apollo (Zeus’s side) A bird, once silver, now black. A crow Bear’s: Arthur means literally Uther’s Bear (arth uther) Lady Luck / One-who-is-nine: References to the names of The lady of the lake Vivian being the Lady luck and Nimue meaning nine and referring to the muses. Fate: Morgan is an avatar of fate Adder: the maiden was treacherous like an adder Dragon: Arthur is also the chief dragon (pendragon)

52 - Elimination In Inrar - Part 2

Rachel Pears

Part two, of a three part story. Zith enlists the aid of Mador (Master-Thief) and N'Taien (Psycho Duellist Wulfen)to aid in her assassination attempt. Note from the writer - please go easy on my punctuation I know it's not perfect. All comments welcome - I will endeavour to reply. Please note that this story was originally posted in its' entirety. However, I have now broken it down into three parts to make it easier to read.

S. Binder

Darkness Turns~Chapter One~

Deborah Soukup

Edge

Mathais A'Court

This is brand new, infact so far no one has read this except my girlfriend! I just finished it, and now I give it to Elfwood, so make all the comments you like. Personally, I'm pretty pleased with the way it came out. Also, it's called Edge for now, being that he's the main character in it, but I'm looking for a better title. Any ideas?

Journey Part 01 - The Shrine

Al Howe

You begin the journey...

The Swordsman, Chapter 2

Journey Part 02 - The Doorway

Al Howe

The Faery Flag of Dunvagen Castle

Rondel Linder

I had been meaning to get around to crafting a retelling of this traditional Scottish legend, but I hadn't meant to do it quite yet. However, I've been working on some related artwork, and in doing the description for the Elfwood site, I found myself caught up in the middle of this retelling. It seemed more suitable for posting here than on the Lothlorien section, which is for visual art, so here it is.

Chapter 6 (The Changing)

Joanna Wu

Things are changing, physically. What are the strange spells that Talin suffers? Is Bonba really who he seems, a funny old goatherd, or is he hiding something as well. What about the stranger in the shadowy cloak...as the saga continues.
