Re: Scraps (lit)

A story idea I played with for a while was that of an alternate reality in which the great dragons remained in control of Feila with the help of a tribe of fennec foxes from Piriqui possessing unique powers of manipulation, who eventually went on to essentially enslave the minds of those dragons, ei...

Re: Scraps (lit)

I enjoy world building and creating interesting settings to toy around with. Often these settings will change over time as I toy with them, and sometimes I've mused about ways to combine them with each other or, in this case, with Feila. The idea I had while writing these fragmants was for the invas...

Re: Scraps (lit)

Out-of-Universe and In-Universe origins of Consensus and Dissent On the topic of Consensus and Dissent, I feel like ruminating for a moment on its origins, both in-universe and out-of-universe. I've always been a Star Trek fan. I was going to say "huge" Star Trek fan, but I never went to conventions...

Re: Scraps (lit)

This incomplete character bio was the origin of the idea for the tiny rat-like, powered-armor-riding religious fundamentalists in the Seeking Fortune Age of Space roleplay ( https://www.feila.org/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=7631 ).

Re: Scraps (lit)

This is a one-off story fragment set during the Age of Space. I wrote this... a long time ago now, before my hidden lore for the Age evolved to its more recent point. This was before I had created the character Etienne and redefined the Immortal's Club as his own singular post-biological super-intel...

Re: Scraps (lit)

So, I haven't logged into Feila in ages and ages, but I do very occasionally come back to re-read some of my roleplays from back in the good old days when things were new and vibrant, and the few comparatively more recent ones from the sort of brief renaissance I had here between a year and a couple...

Taking a break

I have to take a step back from Feila for a while. There's too much else going on right now.

I'll be back sooner or later, as usual. Hopefully sooner than later.

Re: Seeking Fortune

Physical contact had no impact on the mold and lichen. When she reached out to touch it, many of the nearby fundamentalist rodents did the same, driven by curiosity to mimic her. Their touch also yielded no response. The moment Freya tried to reach out with her telepathy, however, the organic matter...

Re: Seeking Fortune

"The ones who whisper into your dreams." The wolf’s face became a tapestry of emotion. He drew sharply aback from the dragoness, his mouth open, eyes wide with surprise. He looked through her, his gaze drifted to infinity, his hackles rose, and his pupils contracted. His ears twitched in response to...

Re: Seeking Fortune

Ludolf nodded as Lenares began to explain what she was trying to accomplish and why. The specifics grew almost immediately to surpass him, but he could appreciate the gist of it. It seemed reasonable that if the magicapacitor could power a flying machine, it could power other things as well. At the ...

Re: Seeking Fortune

Ludolf nodded to Freya as she prepared to depart. He watched the process, silently fascinated but outwardly neutral as was his manner. He didn’t envy Freya. Lenares workshop was amazing, even to someone with only a foggy notion of what any of the machines and apparatuses did. It was far more interes...

Re: Seeking Fortune

Ludolf was relieved that the relationships all around were amicable. Familial divisions could drive people to behave irrationally- or so he was given to understand- and he didn’t need dragons and hybrids with high tech weapons or magic powers acting irrationally around his captain. The captain in qu...

Re: Seeking Fortune

Hearing that they were being directed to a new location on Lenares’ moon set the gears in Ludolf’s head turning. He couldn’t be sure why they were diverted there, but he could guess. “A dome is pretty vulnerable to attack,” he thought aloud. “Maybe she’s gone to ground.” As it turned out, his hunch ...

Re: Seeking Fortune

(Sorry for the delay. Things are finally calming down on my end.) Allswell winked when Sakura mentioned paying Lenares, “Aye, we’ve funds to spare, that we do. And by ‘we’ I mean ‘we’!
