Asrai - Creatures of Eira Preview

In Celtic folklore the Asrai are a race of aquatic Fae. The Asrai are a shy and timid race and tend to fly at the sight of humans, however, their tall lithe forms are said to drive men to drown themselves in an attempt to catch an Asrai. They are unable to stand sunlight as a single ray of the sun is said to cause them to melt into a pool of fresh water.

In Eira, the Asrai are a race of aquatic Fae who fled from the war in the Eternal Lands thousands of years ago. In the surrounding of their immortality something was taken from them, and they can now not stand the light of the sun as it causes great pain and eventual death.

Tall and lithe with silver hair and lightly tinted blue skin, the Asrai can cause any mortal to become infatuated with them. The beauty of the Asrai, however, belies their greatest curse. By abandoning the war in the Eternal Lands and surrounding their immortality, they suffered in more ways then just the cruelties visited to them by the sun. The skin of the Asrai, a very social and friendly race of fae, was made poisonous to all the mortal races, themselves included. Now the Asrai slowly die out as a race, as less of their people intermingle, as less spend time together. Some have lost themselves in their sadness and take their anger at what was done to them out on others. Other of the Asrai are content to hide in their despair, crafting sorrowful songs heard on the winds of the Lochs at night.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.

The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
