New Years Issue
January 3, 2014
Acting on his New Year’s Resolution to turn over a new leaf, Diablo has become a nun. He was last seen in a nunnery contemplating his sins, chief amongst them being cross dressing. Asked why he dressed like that, he confessed, “It’s a habit.”
BEING A POOR GIRL ON SIEGE
– by Kattasrophe
I was walking the streets of Moonglow when I spotted a young woman in ragged clothes. Her necklace had the name, “Poor Girl.” I asked her name. She answered, “Call me poor.”
I didn’t see why, “What is it, actually?”
She replied, “Jennifer.”
Taking a check out of my bank, I handed it to her.
In response, she said, “Thank you. This will help me become a Wildlife Manager.”
I could tell by her clothes she was either very new to the lands or had been wandering a long time. Curiosity took over with the question, “What brings you to these lands?” With that, a smile arose on her face.
“Five years ago, I was wandering these lands. All the others had insurance. I hated that. I went in search of a place without it. Siege was my get-away. A few years did pass and I fell into a deep sleep. I just woke up a few days ago.”
I nodded slowly and after giving her some armor, I wished her the best of luck.

WHY THAT NAME?
– by RueTor
Apollyon: “Apollyon is the name of an ancient god, symbolizing truth, light, justice and necessary evil. It means that a man must become strong before he can be good or evil. Good and evil are impossible without the strength to choose one or the other. Apollyon is the deity that forces this choice onto humans. Apollyon puts humans into situations where they must choose good or evil and then must acquire the strength to bear the burden of the consequence of this choice. Apollyon is the entity that creates choice and makes it possible for men.”
Lai Tash: “Well it’s simple: both Lai and Tash are my names irl, better don’t ask how it’s even possible.”
Zalfein: “Zalfein first appeared on Catskills, back in the nineties, as a Dark Elf. His name was inspired from the name Zaknafein (father of Drizzt), a drow from R.A. Salvatore-Forgotten Realms novels.”
