ISSUE #17 

THINGS CHANGE

Here you'll find all the contents that were in issue #17 of the Rahaman Reader

Happy Friday, everyone!

Be sure to praise Azathoth for allowing you to live through another week!

Just be sure not to wake them.

 

Here's some new and gnarly stuff on Rahaman Writing:

                                                       

- A Quenya haiku regarding freedom

- A new French poem about illness and it's effects

Page 5 of The Baron's Journal is now up

- Added a new map to the Reference Guide for my Sky, Sea, and Stone universe (Map of Orosilla & Neighbouring Islands)

One of the traits that makes my Sky, Sea, and Stone world so important to me is that change is unrelenting. Like the real world. Things happen beyond the control of humans and other mortals. But, on Okeanós, they are not simply forces of nature or misfortune of circumstance. But these natural forces being bent by a will incomprehensible to all save mightier beings than us.

 

This is an echo of the real world. To some degree, anyways. Everything is in a constant state of fluctuation. If you notice it or not depends on your how closely you look. And I look pretty damn close.

The world is not the only thing that changes. You and I do as well. And so should your writing, on occasion.

 

The Baron of Beholder's Writing Tip #6:

 

Do not be afraid to go back and alter your story! I know it can seem tedious and can be awkward. Especially if you're like me and carefully craft everything. But hindsight is always 20/20. You may have learned something, or had a better idea, since writing a past part. Your story could improve if you implement this new idea! 

It is more work, yes.

But if YOU don't make your story the best that it could possibly be,

who will?

Upon the flying city of Temptes Equit, within the grand Central Library, Athos discovers the true nature of sky-born natural forces, and it sends his mind reeling!

For the very particles in the air shift and transform.

Discover the deep lore for yourself in this week's installment for Of the Sky, Of the Sea, and Of the Stones.

"Approaching the docks, we heard the violent smashing of wood and the clanging of metal being pounded through the cold veil of white mist that hung in the air by the coast. With a sudden gust, the pale haze cleared to reveal a beast from the brine like none I had seen before or after my time on Kioshell Island. It was roughly the same size as the fishing ship that had ferried me here and was in the process of tearing apart a vessel of similar proportions with a cold fury, pausing only to fling away huge bits of debris or adjust the monstrous maw that was its shell: the living, partially decomposed head of a sky serpent.."
