The Silver Wolf-A Light In The Dark: Chapter Fifteen-Trail Of Dreams
CruelSummerLord writes "The forested area was a common stopping point for travelers between Greyhawk and Dyvers. However, as the adventurers got a fire going and ate their evening meal they felt as if they were the only people in all the world. Shadows crept in around them as the sky filled with a dazzling collection of stars. The stars contrasted with the light of the fire, lending an aura of wonder and mystery to the adventurers’ surroundings."
The Silver Wolf-A Light In The Dark: Chapter Fourteen-Breaking Dawn
CruelSummerLord writes "Even in just the short time he’d known them, Ma’non’go had seen how the Flan warrior and his gnome and halfling companions had suffered in their own right. Ma’non’go had concluded that they weren’t so different from himself, or Luna and Seline. And then there was Weimar-for all his cheerful demeanor, Ma’non’go doubted that was all there was to it.To his own surprise, Ma’non’go found that the idea of parting ways with any of the other adventurers dismayed him."
The Silver Wolf-A Light In The Dark: Chapter Thirteen-Darkest Hour
CruelSummerLord writes "Luna felt a sense of accomplishment in destroying the idol of Orcus, realizing that she had done right by Pelor. However, destroying the idol had done little to relieve her worries about her fellow adventurers, or the sorrow she felt for all the people who these monsters had victimized."
The Silver Wolf-A Light In The Dark: Chapter Twelve-Darkness Falls
CruelSummerLord writes "At that moment, the seven people walking down the passage they had not entered yet all shared the same desire.To make the monsters pay with blood."
The Silver Wolf-A Light In The Dark: Chapter Eleven-Degrees Of Separati
CruelSummerLord writes "The giants and ogres shivered as the weird sisters began their chant, feeling as if they were being watched. Something wrong, not of this oerth, was coming, some horrible thing that sent chills down their spines. They were utterly helpless before it, and they could feel it looming before them, something that promised infinite menace, attraction and horror all at once."
The Silver Wolf-A Light In The Dark: Chapter Ten-Fallen Heroes
CruelSummerLord writes "Wow, all that remains is to deal with these monsters, whoever they are, he thought. Borrowing Weimar’s spyglass, he focused it to take a good look at the Bearded Lord’s Hollow, and determine the best path to take. It was now fifteen minutes’ march to the hollow, no more."
The Silver Wolf-A Light In The Dark: Chapter Nine-Dogs Of War
CruelSummerLord writes "The death dogs more than lived up to their name. Over four feet high at the shoulder, with hides coal-black in color, the death dogs each bore two huge heads bristling with sharp-edged fangs. There were almost thirty of the foul things, howling balefully as they charged their prey, and they had the adventurers completely surrounded."
The Silver Wolf-A Light In The Dark: Chapter Eight: Two Paths Become On
CruelSummerLord writes "“So you’ve been wandering since then,” Weimar reflected. “Searching for something?”Revafour frowned at that.“You’re not alone in that,” Weimar said, “not at all. I’ve often wondered about that myself, and if I’ll ever find it…”"
The Silver Wolf-A Light In The Dark: Chapter Seven: Back And Forth
CruelSummerLord writes "You insult my honor with such a question, Ma’non’go’s message read. I am a slave to no man-I protect Luna and Seline because I owe their father a debt for saving my life. And as for why I do not speak with my voice, the reasons are my own and I will not speak of them."
The Silver Wolf-A Light In The Dark: Chapter Six: Find The Path
CruelSummerLord writes "“Your friends have mentioned a great evil,” the Flan leader replied, as the adventurers kicked up their horses to follow. “If my suspicions are correct, we may need your help just as much as those whose child you seek to rescue.”"
The Silver Wolf-A Light In The Dark: Chapter Five: Honor Among Thieves
CruelSummerLord writes "“I know all about you, Pieden,” Amyalla accused him, her voice icily calm as Pieden cowered against the wall. “Kidnapping children to sell as slaves, lining your own pockets for their suffering. You’re so brave and strong, intimidating those who can’t fight back. How do you deal with someone who is capable of dealing with you on your own terms?” she demanded, her voice rising angrily as she brandished her dagger."
The Silver Wolf-A Light In The Dark: Chapter Four: The City Narrows
CruelSummerLord writes "The Green Dragon Inn was where many of her old friends tended to congregate. While the Wizard’s Hat was one of the best-kept secrets in Greyhawk’s river quarter, the Green Dragon Inn was one of the river quarter’s most notorious hangouts. The Green Dragon Inn’s clientele was tough and crude, made up of thieves, mercenaries, dockworkers, common tradesmen, and other lower-born folk both honest and dishonest."
The Silver Wolf-A Light In The Dark: Chapter Three: The Faintest Of Tra
CruelSummerLord writes "North by north east…In the hills, built stone on stone like cairn…The innocent plead for deliverance…At the giant’s cloven beard…"
The Silver Wolf-A Light In The Dark: Chapter Two:
CruelSummerLord writes "Pieden knew what the wicked ones wanted. He wasn’t sure who he hated more, the wicked ones for what they were doing to Elian, or himself for not being able to stop them. They were demanding more victims, he knew, and if he did not bring them then Elian would die.So be it, then.He had not survived on the streets of Greyhawk as long as he had through sentimentality, after all."
The Silver Wolf-A Light In The Dark: Prologue And Chapter One-The Long
CruelSummerLord writes "Uboldine’s eyes seemed to pierce through Joelmac’s sight, all the way to the back of his mind. His heart began pounding, the blood roared in his ears, and a crippling tension seized his limbs. Ublodine’s gaze ravaged Joelmac’s body, seizing it with pain before it began to shut down.It was the last sight he ever saw."
The Silver Wolf: Ghosts Of The Past, Part Fourteen
CruelSummerLord writes "An hour later, they were on the road, all seven.The Crown of Arumdina was waiting. "
The Silver Wolf: Ghosts Of The Past, Part Thirteen
CruelSummerLord writes "Blood streaked down one side of Kalrek’s face, but if he was at all upset by the blow he didn’t show it. His smile grew even wider, as he began to laugh once more. With a murderous light in his eyes, he blocked Airk’s next strike and thrust once more with his sword. Airk moved to block it with his shield, but Kalrek hooked his sword under Airk’s shield and heaved it upwards, throwing Airk off balance and leaving him completely defenseless.Kalrek didn’t waste the opportunity, slashing Airk across the chest and down to his leg. Blood poured down Airk’s chest, a flow that was only worsened when Kalrek followed up with another blow that cut deep into his hip and thigh and caused another well of blood to rise up. "
The Silver Wolf: Ghosts Of The Past, Part Twelve
CruelSummerLord writes "“How long has it been, old friend?” he smirked. “Six decades and more?”“Far too long,” Airk replied, “that you continued to draw breath on this oerth.”“And yet, here I am,” Kalrek grinned. “I continue to live and to thrive, seizing the day, building my reputation and my fortune. What of you, then? How has burrowing through haunted ruins, rescuing distressed damsels, and traveling to the four corners of the Flanaess benefited you? Or has it truly done so?”"
The Silver Wolf: Ghosts Of The Past, Part Eleven
CruelSummerLord writes "He would have the Crown on his brow, the power of his subjects in one hand and the power of his minions in the other, his empire, his visible and hidden empire, would grow like an ever-expanding tunnel, always seeking new treasures, new glory……and new victims.He could hear Urdlen laughing. "
The Silver Wolf: Ghosts Of The Past, Part Ten
CruelSummerLord writes "Twisting around, her dagger leading, Amyalla tried to strike back against whatever was attacking them, but all she heard was the twisted laughter of something in the darkness, something more than the doglike creatures that had attacked her.She heard the cries of her companions in the darkness."
The Silver Wolf: Ghosts Of The Past Part Eight
CruelSummerLord writes "“Have you ever felt such guilt that it threatened to drive you mad?” Airk asked. “The feeling that you have brought shame to your heritage and your people, shame made all the worse by the fact that you couldn’t bring yourself to bring a murderer to justice?""
The Silver Wolf: Ghosts Of The Past, Part Seven
CruelSummerLord writes "Airk was all but certain that he had died, and when he awakened in a haze of pain, he wondered if he had come to the Seven Heavens or the Tri-Paradises.The scene awaiting him looked more like the Nine Hells. He was securely chained to a line along with several other gnomes, all of whom were marked with grisly half-healed wounds and were covered in dried blood. "
The Silver Wolf: Ghosts Of The Past, Part Six
CruelSummerLord writes "“Big words coming from men who likely wouldn’t even be able to pleasure that young lady you’re harassing, assuming you were worthy of being with her,” Weimar scowled back. “I’ve always found that the more people such as yourselves boast about your prowess, the smaller your protrusions actually prove to be in practice. Granted, I’m sure you all know that about each other already, considering how little success you’ve likely had with anyone else…”"
The Silver Wolf: Ghosts Of The Past, Part Five
CruelSummerLord writes "“…an’ when that turtle bit down on the barrel, it blew up real good,” the sailor grinned to Amyalla, who only smiled back as she took a sip of wine. “See, that’s the secret to dealin’ with most of these sea bastards-the stupid ones run like dogs when they’re burned by flamin’ oil. Even the smart ones don’t think of stayin’ round too long after that, if’n you’re lucky…”"
The Silver Wolf: Ghosts Of The Past, Part Four
CruelSummerLord writes "Let them think him a warlord, seeking nothing more than to enrich himself at his victims’ expense.Let them ignore what he was truly searching for, the cherished prize that would be the ultimate triumph, the ultimate irony, and the ultimate insult to his old kinfolk.All for his glory, and the glory of the Crawler Below."
The Silver Wolf: Ghosts Of The Past, Part Three
CruelSummerLord writes "Let them think him a warlord, seeking nothing more than to enrich himself at his victims’ expense.Let them ignore what he was truly searching for, the cherished prize that would be the ultimate triumph, the ultimate irony, and the ultimate insult to his old kinfolk.All for his glory, and the glory of the Crawler Below."
The Silver Wolf: Ghosts Of The Past, Part Two
CruelSummerLord writes "“That was too easy,” Revafour said, voicing what they were all thinking. “These things were just fodder.”“So now it’s just us and the master, and whatever he’s got waiting for us,” Weimar chimed in. “Somehow, I don’t think he’ll be in a welcoming mood.”“You never know,” Amyalla quipped as they made their way into the cavern. “Perhaps he’ll be pleased that we decided to deliver his next meal.”"
The Silver Wolf: Ghosts Of The Past, Part One
CruelSummerLord writes "It’s almost like music, she thought to herself, choosing the correct instruments and using them in the correct order for a symphony. That’s the thing about magic-it can be so infinitely creative when a wizard sets her mind to it! "
The Green Wine of Celene
GreyhawkGrognard writes "A young spendthrift noble in the Free City of Greyhawk crosses paths with a merchant who is both more and less than he seems. But will the thieves' guild, of all things, set things aright?"
That Infamous Key
Mystic-Scholar writes "            Well, I never thought the tale would be so long in the telling! Mrs. Hildegard should be in any moment . . . Ooo! Sausages and biscuits! My, but you are a wonder, Mrs. Hildegard! And will you smell that milk gravy! It'll be good to break our fast while I continue my tale of . . ."
Origins Of The Silver Wolf: A Light In The Dark, Part Seven
CruelSummerLord writes "It was a common stopping point for travelers between the free cities, but as the adventurers got a fire going and ate their evening meal they felt as if they were the only people in all the world. As shadows crept in around them, the sky filled with a dazzling collection of stars, even as the twin moons Luna and Celene began their evening dance. The moon and stars contrasted with the light of the fire, lending an aura of wonder and mystery to their surroundings."
Origins Of The Silver Wolf: A Light In The Dark, Part Six
CruelSummerLord writes "They had expected horror when they entered into the large cavern, but what they saw was something out of a madman’s nightmare. The cavern was filled with dozens of corpses, many of them with rotting flesh still hanging from their bones. The flesh and the bones alike of the bodies were riddled with bite marks, as if something had started trying to eat them and then finished halfway through. It was just like the scene they had encountered in the first cavern, and yet it was worse, as many of the bodies were being posed in ghoulish scenes."
Origins Of The Silver Wolf: A Light In The Dark, Part Five
CruelSummerLord writes "At that moment, the seven people walking down the corridor all shared the same desire. To make the monsters pay with blood. "
Origins Of The Silver Wolf: A Light In The Dark, Part Four
CruelSummerLord writes "Soon their cries faded, as did the laughter. The fog and steam died away soon after that as well, until all that was left were the lifeless and maimed corpses that were the only things in the cave to begin with. "
Origins Of The Silver Wolf: A Light In The Dark, Part Three
CruelSummerLord writes "Their ritual completed, the weird sisters fell silent as Dorbella gestured to Bruddelmort, who stood nearby with the rest of his kin. Bruddelmort stepped forward as the weird sisters resumed their ritual, this time with a different spell in mind. They cast the spell on their minion, preparing him for the next phase of their plan. Soon, the ritual ended as Dorbella began casting one final chant of her own, preparing herself for her role in the coming storm. "
Origins Of The Silver Wolf: A Light In The Dark, Part Two
CruelSummerLord writes "“You four seem to be adventurers, are you not?” the leader of the guards asked calmly. “Yes, we are,” Weimar replied. “Is that a problem? Because if it is, we can be on our way-“ “No, you may in fact be the people our lord is searching for,” the leader of the guards shook his head. “He could use the help of talents such as yours…” "
Origins Of The Silver Wolf: A Light In The Dark, Part One
CruelSummerLord writes "Was he awake or asleep? Joelmac hardly knew anymore, and in any event it didn’t really matter. The wicked ones, the ones who were keeping him imprisoned in his cell, always kept it dark in the cavern. He could hear their mocking laughter, and the screams and cries of his fellow prisoners, whether in his sleeping nightmares or when he was awake in the darkness of the cell. He could also see the wicked ones clearly despite the darkness, and even more so the horrors they had forced him to witness. Again, it hardly mattered whether he was awake or asleep-they were waiting in the darkness."

Dirty Words - Pastiche in the World of Greyhawk
gvdammerung writes ""Pastiche."  Wash your mouth out with soap!  You said a dirty word!  Don't you know that the World of Greyhawk includes only unique, totally new, never before encountered, inspired from no preexisting anything, fantasy?  Indeed, that anything less is hack work?  So say many.  And thereby demonstrate their . . . personal preferences!  That is it precisely - personal preference - and not one wit more.  For pastiche is, has been and remains a vital part of the World of Greyhawk.  The real issue is not whether pastiche is a good thing or a bad thing - that's just personal preference - but how well it is done. "
