Our group had just finished beating a small dungeon, and found a small elf who was trapped there and was going mad over a magical bracelet. Our two barbarians figured the best course of action was to tie up the elf, and walk him back to town.
DM: Okay, you make it back into the tavern.
Barbarian 1: Wait, I want to kick the door down.
DM: Alright, roll for Strength.
*rolls a natural 20*
DM: You kick the door off it’s hinges, and it flies across the tavern, hitting a sleeping dog and killing it
Barbarian 1: Oh god…
DM: Everyone looks over as you walk inside, holding a tied up, dirty looking, insane elf on a leash.
Barbarian 1: Uhh…. Hello everyone.
Barbarian 2: Hello!

[Neil Gaiman] was going through a small town in Alabama where he saw a statue of Vulcan. It was a steel town and, as he told the story, there was a factory that had a series of accidents where people were killed on the job and they kept happening because an actuarial had done the numbers and realized that it was cheaper to pay out the damages to the families of people who lost people, rather than to shut down the factory long enough to repair, and that occurred to him as modern a definition of sacrifice as there might be.

Captain Hook is an evil pirate who fears nothing … except flying boys in pantyhose. And crocodiles. And watches. Well, maybe he’s a bit more fearful than your average pirate, but that’s understandable – one time Peter Pan fed Hook’s watch to a crocodile, along with the appendage it was attached to.
Since that day, the mere sound of a ticking watch sends the guy into ‘Nam-like flashbacks. In the movie Hook, he even has a room full of broken clocks as a grim reminder of his impending doom. Good thing he also has the love and support of his faithful second in command, Mr. Smee, across all possible realities …
except our reality, because the real-life version of Smee probably killed the guy Captain Hook is based on. John Maher was a preacher at St. George’s parish in the English village of Brede, East Sussex. At first glance, Maher appeared to be no more than a regular, small town reverend, who just happened to have an ominous hook in place of his left hand. He told everyone he lost it in a coaching accident, and no one had any reason to doubt his story … until a man named Smith came into town and revealed he lost it in his previous career as a brutal goddamned pirate. Apparently, Maher had a pretty successful career as a swashbuckler until he decided to strand his partner (Smith) in the Caribbean, relocate to Brede, and become a man of the cloth. Because the Christian church is where the realbooty is at.

Philip and Lukas parted ways 3 years ago. When Philip comes back to Tivoli for the summer, the last person he expects to see is Lukas. In a small town, it’s hard to avoid people, and it’s even harder to avoid the memories belonging to them.
Philip Shea occasionally finds himself missing Tivoli. It’s been over three years since he graduated; since he left the small town and traded it for a college in a big city.
He loves New York City. He loves his dorm. He loves his classes. He loves the bustling city. He loves the friends he’s made.
But that doesn’t mean he’s forgotten about the half a year he spent in that little town. He still sees the cabin in his nightmares. He still sees Kane leaning down, seconds away from killing him. He still hears the crack of the frying pan.
He still remembers what happened next.
And, of course, he remembers Lukas.
And though he hates to admit it, when he misses Tivoli, he misses Lukas, too.
But that part of his life ended three years ago, on the banks of the lake Lukas jumped unsuccessfully months before. It ended with them walking away, and never turning back.
OKAY. SO THE FOLLOWING IS THE START OF A STEREK FIC I STARTED WRITING AGESSSSS AGO, AND I NEED YOUR OPINIONS ON WHETHER OR NOT I SHOULD ACTUALLY CONTINUE IT. OKAY.
Manipulating the four elements is easy. And that should be the only thing witches and wizards alike should be able to control. But Claudia.. well, she was different. From even before she could remember, she had the power to heal, to cast spells, make wards, to move inanimate objects, to manipulate and control things outside of the four elements.
She was know as a spark. Sparks had supposedly been killed off over the years but Claudia Stilinski kept hidden. She managed to survive. She survived long enough to fall in love, make a life for herself, help people, and have a Family. She managed this for 15 years, the first two years of that she spent running. When one day, in a small town in California she crashed into an unsuspecting deputy, this was the moment when she finally decided to just stop running.
Even in the end, not once did she ever regret her decision to stop running, because that decision caused her to meet the man of her dreams and to have the most amazing beautiful boy who she just knew would grow to be incredible.
The first time Claudia Stilinski held her beautiful boy she new that he would change things, he would be the saviour.
Claudia spent 8 wonderful years watching her Stiles grow into a beautiful, intelligent child. And then her past finally caught up to her.
Claudia wasn’t stupid, she knew that They would find her eventually. Even though she wasn’t afraid for herself any more, she always spent those years looking over her shoulder fearful for her family, but she knew when the time came she would fight tooth and nail for her family, she would make sure those people never came for her boy, the last hope, the last spark.
In the end the doctors ruled it as a brain aneurysm which caused Claudia to lose control of the car and smash into a tree, she apparently died before she came in contact with the tree. Stiles knew better, even from that age, he knew his mom was different, he knew that something so human couldn’t kill his mother, he knew she was different, could do things other people couldn’t. He never spoke his thoughts though, he knew no one would take him seriously. Who would? He was only 8, he didn’t know any better, they would just put it down to his ADD or his overactive imagination.
Besides, he has his dad to take care of now, he couldn’t have him worrying about Stiles so soon after losing his wife.
So Stiles did what he learns he does best. He ignores his problem until it goes away. Which is what happens, all his memories of his mother being ‘Special’ and doing weird things, he represses, puts all those thoughts into the back of his mind until they’re nothing but old bed time stories.
Stiles does this for 8 years, until that one fateful night he drags his best friend out into the woods in search of a dead body. The night everything started.
That’s when he begins to remember. When he begins to question whether they were just old bed time stories, just his imagination going wild. He begins to remember that maybe his mother was pretty special after all.
please be kind because as much as i really love writing (and reading) fics, i rarely do it.
The world makes me sad.
I’m from quebec. I live in a small town near Quebec City. This attack hurts my heart. Why is the world so bad?
We are human, brothers and sisters. We kill each other. We are all the same. But with different religions and nations. I realized how much those six people had done nothing wrong. They were praying. They were praying. How does it hurt? I am sorry to see that the world is dying out. It kill my heart to see humans killing each other for a “question” of religions.
Live and let live.
I pray for peace.
For the quiet.
May God bless you and protect you.
Thank you for your support.

Lenape Natives initially lived along the Delaware River Valley in parts of New
Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania –from which they received their more common
name, Delaware. They became dependent on the colonies and became so involved in
the trade of pelts and furs that they eventually killed off most of the mammals
in their area –they soon grew impoverished and were forgotten as traders
abandoned them for the Iroquois Natives to the north. Under the threats of
poverty, conflict, alcoholism and disease, the Lenape numbers had dwindled from
about ten to twelve thousand to about three thousand since contact was made
with the Europeans.
small groups sold their land or were forced from it at various times. The
scattered, decimated, and unorganized bands … soon gathered, or were gathered,

became refugees within their own land and would also retreat to the land of others.
After the death of William Penn in 1718, he was succeeded by his sons Thomas
Penn and John Penn –whom were involved in the infamous Walking Purchase
of 1737 in which they brought forward a suspicious and possibly
fraudulent copy of a land deed from 1686 that led to a large theft of land from
the Lenape. The Penn brothers had arranged to have three trained runners
sprint through a cleared route, covering about sixty-five miles in eighteen
hours and winning them 1,200 square acres of land from the Delaware.

Penn and John Penn] were used to an expensive life-style, but had no
money. In their desperation, they contemplated ways to sell Lenape land to
colonial settlers. The resulting scheme culminated in the so-called Walking
Purchase. In the mid-1730s, colonial administrators produced a draft of a land
deed dating to the 1680s. William Penn had approached several leaders of Lenape
polities in the lower Delaware to discuss land sales further north. Since the
land in question did not belong to their polities, the talks came to nothing.
colonial administrators had prepared the draft that resurfaced in the 1730s.
The Penns and their supporters tried to present this draft as an actual deed.
Unsurprisingly, Lenape leaders in the lower Delaware refused to accept it. What
followed was a convoluted sequence of deception, fraud, and extortion
orchestrated by the Pennsylvania government that is commonly known as the
Walking Purchase. In the end, all Lenapes who still lived on the Delaware were
driven off the remnants of their homeland under threats of violence.” – Steven
refugee Lenape villages that had arose from this displacement are believed to
have been an important component that led to the French and Indian War and the
surge of revolutionary ideas among the Lenape Delaware Natives. One of these
revolutionaries was a man from the Delaware named Wangomen, who
believed that the great creator spirit, Gichi-Manidoo, had chosen him as a
messenger. Wangomen, also known as the Assinisink Prophet, was visited by a
great buck during a hunting trip that conveyed the message that by abandoning
the old ways, the Natives had placed themselves in this difficult situation.
creator spirit, Gichi-Manidoo, let him peer into the heavens where he saw that
there were three heavens –one for Natives, one for ‘Whites’ and one
for ‘Negroes’. The ‘Whites’ were ill-treated in their heaven, as
punishment for their abuses against the Natives, for taking the promised land
away from them and for their enslavement of the ‘Negroes’.
Delaware man named Papoonan, had a vision while mourning his
father’s death –the great creator spirit, Gichi-Manidoo, was offended
by the way that the Natives had abandoned the old ways. Papoonan was a
supporter of Natives purifying themselves in the old ways of their forefathers
and for them to denounce the use of alcohol. Unlike the other prophets he
preached peace, coexistence, the sharing of resources and also accepted some of
the teachings of the Moravian Christian missionaries

was yet another man from the Delaware tribe named Neolin, meaning “the
enlightened”, in this story he plays the greatest significance. Neolin traversed
the spirit world for days before reaching three forks in the road, from both
the wide and the narrow roads a great fire arose from the ground which forced
him to turn back. On the third path he encountered a marvelous white mountain
in which he saw a woman of radiant beauty that instructed him to strip himself
of all that he has and to purify himself in a nearby river. After purifying
himself he met with the great creator spirit, Gichi-Manidoo, who gave him a
guideline for the Natives to follow. The Natives must refrain from drinking, be
married to one woman, not covet their neighbors’ wife and not to fight with
their fellow brethren.
the land in which they inhabited was given to them by him, reminding them that
they lived before the French and English had arrived and didn’t need their
assistance. They hunted with bow and arrow without need of firearms. That now
they had become dependent on the whites, for his children (the Natives) to send
the whites back to the homes that he has given them, across the ocean. To “drive
off your lands those dogs clothed in red who will do nothing but harm”.
sought to purify his followers, urging them to rid themselves of all
European goods and return to the lifestyle of their ancestors. Though he
had many followers, the idea of tossing aside their arms was too much for some
Natives to comply with. Nevertheless, Neolin became yet another force swaying
the Natives against the ‘Whites’.
so doing, and by strictly observing his other precepts, the tribes would soon
be restored to their ancient greatness and power, and be enabled to drive out
the white men who infested their territory. The prophet had many followers.
Indians came from far and near, and gathered together in large encampments to
listen to his exhortations.” – Chapter VII, The Conspiracy of

THE “SAVAGE” EMPIRE – The origins of the Iroquois
Confederacy, the early wars they were involved
in, the effects that disease epidemics incurred
upon them, the Iroquoian cultural use of torture, scalping, and cannibalism,
the tomahawk and its symbolism (bury the hatchet), as

This post covers the religious beliefs of the
Iroquois Confederacy, their origin story,
their belief in duality (like yin and yang), their
secretive and mysterious masked societies,
and their involvement in the conflicts between their two great colonial

Confederates into siding with the British. It is believed that without the aid
of the Iroquois Confederacy, North America would now be speaking French instead

Imagine meeting Ragnar while they’re on a raid. They would plunder the small town you live in and actually they didn’t plan to make captives, but when some of his men were about to kill you, Ragnar would stop them. “Not this one.”, he said and the men let down their axes and turned to look at him. Ragnar wouldn’t pay attention to them and just walk straight towards you. He would bend down before you and eye you for some seconds until an interested little grin would cross his face. “Do you understand me? You’ll come with us”
