The Garosaur Dilemma

The strange garosaur pups that spun cocoons were gathered in turn by the various linorii researchers, intent on studying this new lifeform. Unfortunately, they didn’t quite realize how large and vicious they became when they hatched from their cocoons. Indeed, thousands of these rabid garosaurs broke out of their respective laboratories and spread throughout the Basin of Life. But perhaps their research wasn't all for naught, as they realized the strange weather patterns plaguing the Basin of Life was caused by the alien ecosystem. Could these garosaurs actually provide some relief from this situation simply by dying? In the month ...

The Linorii Menagerie and Garosaur Conundrum

With the glowbat population stabilising thanks to the rigorous research of the Basin's foremost linorii researchers, each researcher published a comprehensive report based on their findings. With this stabilisation, it was thought that the commune and city members who aided the researchers would have time to relax and review the reports in peace and quiet. To recap who the researchers are and where they can be found: In New Celest, Bubbllosh Feilm is in the shop 'Light's Holdings'. In Magnagora, Vittoria d'Lardick is in the laboratories beneath the Zoo. In Serenwilde, Mapee Thistlefur is in the laboratories on the top ...

Glory to the Glowbats

Curiously, the strange growing sinkers found across the land appear to be affected by some mysterious ailment, causing them to first solidify and then explode into numerous glowbats! As if this wasn't peculiar enough, the ailment causes the sinkers to become stunted in their growth, leaving them small and devoid of the tangled threads... Six researchers have made it known that they have an interest in studying these glowbats, one for each city or commune. But for those who wish to conduct fieldwork for them, take note: the manner in which you collect the glowbats for your respective researcher will ...

A Whale of a Tale

Suddenly, and against all probability, a void-whale manifested in the skies above Mount Avechna. Nearly slamming into its peak, the creature took flight across the Basin of Life, littering the ground with pieces of itself that had broken off during its reentry. Its wandering was not long, however. Attracted by the scent of a particularly potent pitcher plant, the void-whale crashed into the Lava Gardens in Gaudiguch. Too weak and battered to take flight once more, the pitiful creature was aided by Malarious, Esoneyuna Talnara, Kistan Rithel of Gaudiguch and a curious Xenthos An'Ryshe of Glomdoring. Together they helped the ...

Threads, Fall and Rise

Strange weather. The people of the Basin of Life had thought that the rain of bouncing balls from the lightning-splashed sky was the end of it. But in Shanthin, 505 years after the Coming of Estarra, reality shook once more, and the very ground began to sprout with tangles of blue-green shimmering thread, which spread like wildfire through the cities and communes of the Basin and the wilds between. Nobody knew what they were or where they came from originally, and theories abounded. The threads grew from depressions in the ground centred on round, glowing cores. Sinkers, some called them, ...

Transmological Visions

While sinkers and threads plagued the Basin of Life, transmologists were plagued by a vision of the threads unearthing something looking like a box or a chest. Soon, the visions came true, and a chest was found off of a spectre-filled island. Mosachi Xeeth of Gaudiguch claimed to potentially have some knowledge as to the chest, providing a key with which to unlock it. Within, a curious looking document was discovered, although Mosachi believed there was more than met the eye. With Alaksanteri's aide, Mosachi had an equally curious flower planted within the City of Freedom. Believing that the document ...

Peculiar Weather and Other Oddities Peculiar Weather and Other Oddities When the skies cracked open with blue-purple lightning, the very atoms of reality shifted, and strange shapes and stars shifted in and out of view upon the firmament. This led to a rain of strange bouncing balls that seemed to have value for at least one gnome who visited the Basin of Life. Was any of this connected to the strange explosions that later rocked the mines and Undervault?  Read more. Invasion of the Sinkers After the strange hail of bouncing balls subsided, strange glowing sinkers sprouted throughout the Basin ...

Peculiar Weather and Other Oddities

In Avechary of the year 503 after the Coming of Estarra, the skies of Lusternia cracked open with blue-purple lightning. The very atoms of reality shifted, and strange shapes and stars shifted in and out of view upon the firmament. While the inhabitants of the Basin of Life were reeling from these strange circumstances, a rain of bouncing balls began to fall from the roiling skies, with no hint as to their origins. The dense, elastic spheres bounced everywhere throughout the Basin of Life, finding their way to the most unlikely of places. Capitalising on the appearance of the spheres, ...

Calling Home Lord Nocht

Recently, a concerned muted slaugh approached Xenthos An'Ryshe within the Glomdoring forest, asking if he'd heard from the Silent Lord in recent times. Soon joined by Eliron Shee-Slaugh, a former member of His Order, both confirmed that they had no news to share. As the slaugh expressed her concern, and the gathering grew further, it was proposed that summoning Mother Night might lead to answers. Unfortunately the moon was not yet in the right position for this to happen, and so an alternative approach of a visit to Lhiannan, the Queen of the Slaugh, was instead chosen. Lhiannan shared her ...
