Re: Kai needs a ranger name

I'm not as up to speed on the different Elvish languages/dialects. His Mom wanted something that shows that he is curious. For my daughter and myself, our names reflect personality, past, appearance. Things like that.

Kai needs a ranger name

https://photos.app.goo.gl/Rxnjr4yQPx2fZHiW9 So, this little guy is Kai. He's my 4 month old grandson. He is very curious. He needs a ranger name. I have always used pixelated Feanor for my names, but it seems to have disappeared. I can't find it, or any mention of it. Please! Don't let my grandson b...

Re: Staining paper

That looks really cool! In my first attempt, the paper tore too easily. I haven't moved forward with the project because so much has been going on. But I'm about to need to move on with it.

Re: Ember. A non LOTR offering

I got stuck on how to drive this story forward, so, taking a page from writing 101, I'm going to have to do some rewriting. It's all a part of the process. That's something I didn't understand before. I like insights into your wordcraft, I do this but I didn't realise it was a thing. I just know I ...

Re: Staining paper

I agree about charring the edges unless there is something in the lore about the piece surviving a fire. For a little more clarity, this will be an ancient drawing for an Elvish blade that is presented to an old injured ranger turned Smith. I guess I should upload the backstory to the bard's stage. ...

Hey folks,
Is there anyone here that lives in or near Stuttgart, Germany? My daughter, son-in-law and new grandson are there.

Re: Staining paper

I was hoping someone would explain tea staining to me! Thanks for the answers. The paper I'm using is on a big roll that I bought for something else years ago. It is not too light weight. I may try a small test piece when I get home from work today.

Staining paper

So, I'm working on a collaboration with a cosplayer and I need to draw out a sword that I'll be forging. I have some rather large paper but it is white. How would I go about staining it to make it look older?

Hmm, writing that out just planted the seed for a much deeper lore for the blade.

Re: Updates for Vendor-Members

Re: Ember. A non LOTR offering

Finally got some editing done: Soon, Martel had the remaining gold coins from the Captain. He stepped from the large tent to find the King’s servant standing nearby. Upon her arm was a large white falcon. Its golden eyes set upon Martel as he approached. Briefly, the woman looked at him then whisper...
