“Tomanus of Gaveria – the most infamous assassin of the Empire – killed no less than 182 members of The Mother Church before he was apprehended.
The great scandal of the Tomanus saga is – however – not that he was able to dispatch 3 Mysta (2 of them in the same night) or that his clients were never exposed – but that throughout his long campaign Thomanus was in posession of an object blessed not by one but six of the minor gods of the Empire.
The implications are better left undiscussed.”
“It is said that the game “Dead Bone” originated on the island of Merides, famous for it’s shipwrights and morbid legends of life at sea.
It is also said that the first ruler of a united Merides – Suleima Malika, the Pirate Queen – owned a set of dicethat was the first to play Dead Bone.”
“Alambra-Sul – the first fortress of Man – lies far to the south in lands forsaken by the light of the Empire.
Besides being by far the oldest known structure raised by humans the tombs and palaces of Alambra-Sul also brought to the Empires scholars the first examples of craft made from naturally magical materials.
The arrows of Alambra-Sul – despite their primitive appereance – spell painful death to their targets. The unnaturally sharp crystals shreds flesh, splinter bone, and cause horrible jagged scars if their victims survive the shot.”
Really. Is this a pie, tart or cake? Around here we simply refer to it as an applecake but danish language is notoriously imprecise.
As I was discussing with The Randi one of the hardest things for me to do is to follow a recipe. My head is too disorganised and I have trouble doing, reading and mentally processing information at the same time. Learning how to cook has for me been a process of learning by heart how to treat different ingredients and then combinning the results. I can cook complicated dishes and I’m very good at improvising but throw in a vegetable I do not know and it all falls to pieces.
I’m a Sorcerer not a Wizard (thank you D&D for making it possible to reduce this long explanation to a short statement).
One of the things that helps me is to slowly and steadily measure out all of the components (which is why you see so many pictures of things arranged on my chopping board) and arrange them in groups corresponding to what has to be prepared together. Then I arrange these groups in the order they have to be prepared. It’s a very visual process for me. Eventually these images become second nature and I can just start cooking.
