The Warlocks wandering Journal Contest – Woman in Ice

Come one come all!
Hear ye hear ye! Gather round!

The Warlocks Journal has appeared in Tiny Gorks workshop, just lying there all of a sudden on a shelf. Its pages had opened up on an interresting entry, a picture.

here is what we know about the Journal.

The Warlock’s Journal is an interdimensional book that teleports from place to place, recording knowledge in whatever location it finds itself. The places it goes may be widely separated in time and space and even be in different dimensions or alternate realities.

The handful of people who have actually seen the book more than once suggest that it sends its information back to some central location, as they have seen the book nearly filled with information, only to find it almost empty again, or filled with completely different information, at some later point.

Of course, since there is no real proof that the book itself travels through time in a linear manner, such analysis is speculation at best. What powerful entity could have created such a marvel? Where is the ultimate repository (if any) of the wealth of knowledge collected by the Journal in its roving, and is its creator still waiting there, learning about the multiverse? It is, perhaps, better not to know.

Warlocks Journal Contest – Woman in Ice

We have now had a contest in creating items of power at the Warlocks Sanctum and the creation of a faction/organisation at Tales of a GM.

This time the pages of the journal has opened on a paiting, it looks like a woman trapped in ice. But who is this woman? Why is she trapped in the ice? How did she become trapped in the ice? Will she be set free or break free? Dig into your imagination, use this image to create the woman in ice. Is she a goddess? An npc? A villain? A heroine?

    1. I read a post from Matthew Pauze today about the contest running for the Warlocks Journal. So I went ahead and whipped up a quick entry and sent it off. But I just realized I missed it!! I read two dates, 29th and 31st for judging, completely missing the 20th as a submission due date. This is just wrong people. JUST WRONG =(

      Since it won’t get entered in the contest I thought I would at least post it here. I’d like to think that somebody got to read it =(

      “During an era of war, life was lost in immeasurable number. Blood was the ink of life, that by which you defined yourself. Weaponry was for the weak, intimate killing revered. Taking life was an artform defined by the intensity of your passion. The more complete your disregard for humanity, the greater your legacy!

      Women were oppressed and belittled, their worth weighed by utility and number of males borne. The uses men found for them were beyond the bounds of brutality and depravity. Ruined husks and drones, to be dead inside was considered a blessing. Throughout males outnumbered women 7 to 1. There was no strength, no hope fit for such a creature during this time. To be a pathetic dog worthy of table scraps was enough. A tortured life of servitude was better than dead.

      The Time of Educible Glory is what they call it. Humanity made vast strides from the muck and filth it slithered from millenium past. A time full of icons and their eminence, with one notable exception. A Barbarian King, master of death, had raised a daughter in the ways of bloodshed. Upon his ending she took his throne from his five hulking generals in provoked combat. One versus five, she floated on the wind, quicker and more agile than any man could ever be. Howling like an animal and bucking with lust, she ripped the throats from each using only her nails and file sharpened teeth.

      For over a decade she wrought war, freeing women, growing her army, and unleashing their pent fury. Eventually she was overtaken in the region of Frost. Cast into a block of ice and put on display for women to view and remember their place. Known only as the Barbarian Queen, her triumphant deeds have been stricken from history.”

      Exactly 300 Characters. GRAWR!
