Lost in the Forge
"It will cost you 1000 gold to use my forge for a week," says the master of the forge.
Gannon responds quickly and with a slight anxiousness.
"No one will bother me during that time, right? Oh and will steel be provided for that price or is that just for the forge?"
"Wait…you're serious?" Confusion spread across the master smith's face, originally thinking his offer would be scoffed at by this young man in the fancy deep blue robes. Gannon looks at the forge master, then at Radi.
"Oh, I get it. You were teasing about the weekly charge! Well is there a way we can we still work some metal in your forge, sir?" Gannon continues with a smile upon his face.
  The old man's gaze passes over the current talk of the town: Gannon, a young man with the gift of speaking  and the Pilgrim, a man who is winning over the hearts of the soldiers in the town.
  "So these are your friends, Radi?".
"Yeah," she sighs, her elven body shifting slightly under her traveler out

Gannon's down time 9
"Thanks for the fun time, Gannon. Love, Nari."
I gather my stuff, get dressed and head for the door. As I walk back, a mixture of emotions is brewing in my mind. Happiness, fear, confusion, lust, desire. I see the shadow of a bird of prey. I look up and Emery descends to land upon my left shoulder, his claw touching my scar from the spear. In my mind, I hear him speak.
"Gannon, where did you go?! What happened? You have been gone for over two days!"
"What--?! No, I was with a friend in there talking." I feel Emery reaching into my surface thoughts. "You had sex! Well, um, congrats. Two days! You and your friend must have some stamina!"
"Really, you're going there?" I turn, disgusted. "Ugh, I don't even want to talk about it!"
Emery looks curious. "Why not?"
I feel him pry a little bit more into my memories.
"Wait, you didn't know what hole to...?"
I pry into his thoughts and all I hear is laughter. Such a wonderful way to start a friendship.

"Well done my man. I haven't seen anthing like that in years. You are quite the stud, and with the crown on the whole time, truly you must feel like a king?" murmurs Agaras, with a shit- eating smile. I don't care about his grin or anything else. I look back at her on the bed covered in claw marks. I look down at my hands and see the scales scurry up my forearms and to my shoulder. Wait! They never go this far. I've forgotten where I am, and start looking over my entire body. Brass scales cover my form. I feel my face and all of the hair is gone, and I have small horns running across my eyebrows, wrapping around my head. I have more of a snout than a face now. I look down and my legs are connected to clawed talons. Panic spreads and the feeling from earlier leaves me hiding back deep within my blood. I slowly watch the scales recede, just barely visible. My hands go back to normal with only the slightest of hooks on my nails. My feet return to normal. "What happened just now?" I ask al

Agaras chuckled. "Now, how could it be magical without red wine?" He flicks his tail and two tall glasses appear, full to the brim. "To a strong friendship!"
"To a strong friendship," I agree, copying him. I take a long drink from the glass. It tastes perfect, with all of the flavors out there and then something even sweeter. What is it? I have tasted it before, but when?
"So my friend, how are your days treating you as Cortana? And as Gannon, the Magi with the ability to control fire?"
"Oh, just fine. Cortez is getting too close for comfort. A couple of days ago he tried to follow me home, and I had to pull deep to activate my invisibilty and get away. And I'm doing fine, except it is getting hot in here. Would you mind if I get comfortable?"
"I'm very comfortable," Agaras says, "It is only fair that you be as well! Oh, and I have a question about your culture. Aren't you considered a man by now? I mean, surely your actions alone make you more of a man than any other in the city?"

I waited for a few minutes after dinner, letting everyone head off to their rooms. I quickly scanned over a couple of texts I found amongst the things recovered from the tomb of Kamagen. The dark memories I try to hide from rush back to me, filling my thoughts with sadness and dread. I fight them off as best as I can. What we did is no secret and I have nothing to fear. I grab the brass and gold ring, as well as the crown of Kamagen. Wearing both, I can hear only what truth may come from another's lips. It is a powerful tool, but one that will never help me keep friendships. I pull upon my blood and will myself to lift off of the ground and out the window, flying down to the back of the house where I come to a soft landing. As I do, I see the shadows grow in one of the alleys leading to our house, and feel a tug upon my magic and the surrounding areas.
"Agaras, is that you?"
"A business man is always on time my friend," and out of the shadows walks the large black cat. "Please follow m

I awoke to something blobbing upon my chest. I opened my eyes and my gaze fell upon a large hawk with piercing eyes. In my mind I feel a sudden connection, and a voice like I normally hear. However, this one is not a monster of my subconcious, or the screams of the undead.
"Gannon, you are a hard man to find in this city. I apologize for landing on you, but I had to wake you up."
I think to the bird, or out loud in my head, "It is fine, but how do you know me and who are you?"
"Oh, my name is Emery. I was sent a very brief message, the first I have recieved from the Celestial Realm since it was closed off ages ago. It said simply, 'Find Gannon of the Dragons' blood' and, well, I found you."
"So you sought me out because of a single message?"
"Yes. It was an order from the divine resistance. We fight against darkness in this world and the one above, hoping one day to purify the corruption that now rules over both."
"Wait... You want to kill that black-winged angel with that horrible spe

I learned how to use my more powerful energy within me to fuel my lesser spells such as transformation, so now I get about 4 and a half hours as Cortana, or anyone else I want to be. But near the end of my spell, I said good bye to Cortez and the rest of the runners and headed home, ducking into an alley and releasing my spell. I forgot that I turned when I was in my full robes, so I had to walk through the streets with all the poor asking me for change and getting eyeballed by all of the thugs checking the size of my purse. My mace of dark iron and bronze deters most of them, and the others hold back, knowing of our defeat of Aganesh.
One day, I decided it would be best that everyone know of our deed. So I gathered together as many bards as I could find, and told them the story. Of course, I omitted the roles of the rat-man and sewer-king, but the rest of the tale was left intact. I payed the bards handsomely to spread our tale across the land and throughout the city.

I can't decide. Both are so tempting.
Today as Cortana I was approached from a cat as I was cutting through a shortcut Cortez had showed me, which makes for quicker travel to the loan houses from the shipyard. The cat landed right in my path. It had fur that pulled on the shadows, stretching them towards itself and arching the blackness in upon its fur. The cat smilled and bowed low. Then it spoke to me.
"Gannon of the Corbeal, destroyer of Aganesh, it is truly a pleasure to meet you. I have been watching you since the Screaming Death-- I mean, Delgidens' Wail. You are quite amazing, and if I may say, powerful. You are only growing in strength by the day." As he was talking, he slid towards me and started to weave between my legs. His fur was cold on the surface and seemed to crawl on me, but whenever it lingered too long, it would start to heat up with a flame that I knew was not from this plane. He continued speaking.
"You have a lot of potential, Gannon, and a heritage that screams

I've tried many things to feel like I did before crawling down into the dungeon. The only one that has worked is a spell I recently found hidden in my mind transformation. It allows me to take the shape of another person, anyone at all. I used it once before to mess with Radi. I turned into a corbeal, my bodyguard back on the Island of Corbeal in the city of Corbeal. They really need to get a better name. Anyway, I turned into a giant corbeal and I stomped into her room, roaring at her for being in the same chamber of the Empasidor-- me. She turned white as a sheet and reached for her Halberd, the one she took from Aganesh after we killed him. I screamed and pulled the magic away from my flesh, turning back into me.
I tried it again the next day when I turned myself into a noble man I had watched walking the streets of Tesvold. Letting his guards make a path through the crowd for him, I studied him from afar. I studied his stride, his swagger and his attire, which was an amazing mixtur

Gannon's down time 1
It has only been a  few short weeks since we have defeated Aganesh in the ancient tomb of the original city of Tesvold-- buried thousands of years ago after the Cataclysm. I have recently discovered that I am the descendent of the dragon that started it-- Kamagen the Corrupt.
Radi, Dusk, Kadien and myself haven't talked much since we entered the labyrinth.  They seem to be trying to look past it, but I can't. I killed so many things when we were down there. Given form, my magic scorched the flesh off of soldiers, and  melted the ancient metal they used as armor to their bones. I fired bolts of energy from my hands that sought the softest place they could penetrate, using the energy of my soul to blast away parts of their corrupt forms.
All of those helpless people dragged screaming into the catacombs and tossed into cages; starved and tortured until their wills were weak enough for the demons of other realms to be imprisoned in their flesh, They were shove

Threw the Blood
It all started the day I awoke Silver Fang deep within the dungeon under Tes Vold.
We were hundreds of feet below the city within the tomb of King Sethel. I traced the rune of stone to flesh upon Silver Fang's massive leg, and within seconds of me imbuing the rune with magic, his form shuddered as he was awoken from his thousand year slumber. The noble who did not believe my power was exposed under Silver Fang, cowering in fear. Silver Fang then released a roar that made the earth shake, and we all felt our lives flickering in our chests like torches being compared to the sun in his presence! Silver Fang turned his eye on me, asking me something in a tongue that at first I did not know but a part of my mind seemed to awaken just a bit to translate it for the rest of  me. He asked "Who has awakened me?"
As he did, he started to shrink in size, going from taking up the entire chamber which was easily five times the size of Mistress Nema's inn on Delgidions Wall, to the size of

well when some one does an amazing Totoro painting I got to add it to favorite! Oh have you heard that Hayao Miyazaki is planing a trilogy that will be his final work a last hurray before retiring, and like an evil Studio Ghibli is re-releasing all of their movies digitally remastered as well!

I'm a huge fan of Studio Ghibli, especially Miyazaki movies. I try to be very knowledgeable about the animation studio. Now Miyazaki is working on a movie set on World War II, and specifically a plane designer's life who really lived. Many people said a year ago this probably would be a second Porco Rosso movie, but is not. Finally this will be a biographical movie with so many planes like Porco Rosso, without any other connection.

However, a entire year left for this movie. Next release by Studio Ghibli, directed by Miyazaki's son, Goro, was Kokurikozaka Kara (From Corn Poppy Hill), based on a manga. Available in movie theaters in Japan since July 16th. ^__^

Tonari no Totoro has a short film only available in Ghibli Museum, Mitaka, in which Mei find a little Kittenbus (Konekobus). In this short movie, an ultra-old catbus appears, and is dubbed by Miyazaki himself. ^___^
