Veiadokuur

Horace’s Journal – These journals regarding Finnegan “The Carrier” Arber-Uthordar’s early life was retrieved from an old, metal chest in Isaea. Before the discovery of these primary documents, little was known about his life before his involvement with the Seers of Geldorg and his work as a licensed mercenary. The journals provide historians and biographers with a glimpse into his infanthood and the circumstances of his birth. (May 24, 2017)

Grasha, OutsiderPart 1, Part 2 – Grasha’s frustration with the response of her tribal leaders to the ever-deadlier war in Veiadokuur only worsens with time. But she’s only a scout and a lowly, former-exile. Her words carry little sway, and the Blackskulls only tolerate her presence. It takes a horrible event before anything is actually done about the growing, inevitable conflict. (April 5, 2017)

Tabris, Dokurokol, and the Life GemPart 1, Part 2 – Tabris and Dokurokol, two immortal beings, are trapped on the Thunderjaw’s home island. Leaving it and exploring beyond its boundaries causes them to tire and age. Content with his life on the island, Tabris doesn’t understand why Dokurokol keeps leaving and risking her life to search for the famed “Life Gem,” a stone that will grant them freedom–if it exists. She convinces him, and he joins her on a journey to truly have lives worth living. (March 20, 2017)

Legends of Veiadokuur

The Fox and the Flame – Suffering as mortals know it did not exist until the creator god, Bakthua, plucked his eyes to give to his children. People suddenly began dying forever, and felt pain in ways they never thought possible. Yet despite their turmoil, nothing truly mattered–you were born, you were hurt, and you died. The brother god, Geldorg, as he wandered through our world to see it for himself, had yet to realize the futility of it all. It was only when he met a truly evil orc, Gordūn, does he learn the difficulty of mortal life. (June 30, 2017)

Birth of the Thunderjaws – The Thunderjaw orcs were not always a tribe of their own. They were once part of the Kilverud, one of the largest tribes in Veiadokuur. A family of orcs adopted an abandoned elf, who they named Kunol. As he grew, he pledged his loyalty to the tribe and was sent to gather information about a nearby clan of elves. Kunol goes with the intention of spying, but when he reunites with his elven family, he learns of a greater danger that will threaten orcs and elves alike. (January 25, 2017)

Agrat the Wanderer – Before Bakthua’s children truly became gods, Rek’gor visited the Blackskull tribe to spend time with the orcs. It was a simpler time, where nothing changed, and one orc, Agrat, hated it. He challenged Rek’gor to make one adjustment to the world that would affect everything else, thinking it’s impossible, but she surprises him. (September 28, 2016)

Rokag the Rider – The Blackskull orcs have many legends, and Rokag is one of the most popular characters. But their adventures had to begin somewhere. This story details Rokag’s birth, and how Rokag befriended Thak’rag, the biggest, stubbornest steed in the Blackskulls’ herd. (September 26, 2016)

Modern Fantasy

The CollectorPart 1, Part 2, Part 3 – In the modern world, cities have expanded and grown, replacing forested or otherwise natural spaces. Fair Folk once thrived, only to be overtaken by parking garages and strip malls. Their quieted presence made mortals forget their existence–as well as how to avoid the wilier ones. Most mortals, in fact, dismiss tales of the Fair Folk as “fairy tales” or simple folklore. Finn is one such person, and doesn’t even realize just how big of a mess he’s found himself trapped in. When Agrat also goes missing, it’s up to Rokag and Tabris to find a way into the Fair Folks’ home, and get them back. (July 15, 2017)

Rokag’s DeparturePart 1, Part 2 – A tale meant to explore Rokag’s early life and her motivations for traveling for a dropped D&D campaign. (November 2, 2016)
