What have you designed today?

    Can't believe I never actually posted these, they were designed months ago.

    @Talamond and I, being the zealots we are, built shrines to the Bloodsworn in our subdivision house, because yes (rooms are called shrine to <bsworn>, shrines are the room descs)

    I designed the Aurora shrine with some help from Talamond and some Aarashi. Talamond designed the Deucalion shrine on his own as far as I know

    Aurora Shrine:
    Dominating the centre of the room, a massive statue of Lady Aurora commands the full attention of all who enter. A gleaming scimitar is held aloft in Her right hand with battle-ready poise, an ethereal, pulsing light emanating from its pommel of perfect Eudialyte. Resting on Her opposite side, the blade's twin lies secured in an ornate ivory scabbard decorated in gold filigree. Gripped in Her left hand is a brilliant prism, scattering the light from the scimitar to form a radiant display below. A triad of statuettes encircle the base, the Dragon, Eagle, and Phoenix conveying the Lightbringer's ferocity, compassion, and championing of Life and Rebirth. A raised basin filled with water stands at the forefront, attached to a prominent plaque carved with the words, "These are the facets of Life, which fill the whole of Creation."

    Deucalion Shrine:
    Intimidating flickers of brilliant orange cascade across the walls, originating from a towering statue of Lord Deucalion. An authoritarian stance and stern visage convey the Righteous Fire's uncompromising demeanor, punctuated by featureless eyes of solid gold directed at the unseen distance. His left hand maintains a firm grip on a luminous ivory shield while His right extends commandingly forward, presenting a roaring fire atop an open palm. Scores of charred iron braziers stand at varying heights, their quivering flames flaring and conjoining to conceal the majority of the torso and waist. Precariously close to the scorching display is a raised pyre, joined by a plaque engraved with, "In the Flame are all things made pure."

    I was looking for something today and found a tapestry I designed for the tapestry contest. It didn't win (great job @Stheno!) so I may as well share it.

    a devastating tapestry of the Worldreaver

    Hung upon a nearby wall, an enormous tapestry depicts the grim legacy of the Worldreaver.

    Brightly coloured weft threads weave seamlessly together to tell the story of Bal'met, the Worldreaver in tapestry form. Starting small, the ormyrr rape of Elara is the first of a chain of events that wind serpentine across the fabric, depicting the alien God's rise. Towards the middle, the eye is drawn to vivid battle scenes of a formless black miasma astride a great undead dragon, Gods lying dead in His wake; followed by vengeful Lady Keresis forcing Bal'met into a portal to the bleak Nishnatoba wastelands. Larger images continue of Lady Maya sacrificing Her Divinity, Demigods fighting shades on Nishnatoba and finally, a last, stark portrayal of Aurora, the Lightbringer thrusting Her holy sword into Bal'met's dark heart, ending His reign of terror. In the bottom corner, a robed grey figure is half-turned away from the carnage, His hands cupped around a dancing flame.

    Thanks @Penwize. :3 Shikudo staff approved!
    Appearance: a crystalline salt staff
    Dropped: Thrumming with a faint blue light, a crystalline salt staff lies here.
    Examined: Measuring an impressive six feet in length, but only a few inches in width, this exceptionally large, cultivated salt crystal has been carefully selected for use as a staff. Its base begins in a rough and jagged edge, which quickly smooths to a flat hexagonal prism that defines the weapon's distinctly crystalline shape. The staff extends in straight segments interrupted by small irregular turns along its length, until blooming outward in a larger crown. The crown boasts a multitude of natural facets that bend any light passing through them, splaying it out in polychromatic hues across the room. Throughout the whole length, occasional thrums of deep blue energy pulse from the staff's core in a quiet, reverberating beat.

    Dissolving a specially-preserved salt crystal of that size, would take a lot more water than what you'd get from raining.

    This isn't incorrect, technically speaking. The blue energy is kai energy, which keeps it bonded. We opted to not specifically name it as such, because people might not know kai energy in-game is blue, so they'd be pedantic and be, "How do we know it's kai just from looking at it?!"

    I decided (a few days ago) to change my instrument specialisation from lyre to mandolin. I then bought and customised a mandolin.

    A: a black maple mandolin
    D: Awaiting the touch of a maestro, an ebony mandolin lies here.
    E: Four pairs of silver strings stretch tautly across the pear-shaped face and body of this simple, elegant instrument. The lovingly polished body and neck of the mandolin are expertly crafted from a lustrous cut of maple wood, sanded down to a velvet finish and stained a beautiful ebony. The soundboard has been formed from lacquered spruce, its stain giving the wood a hue reminiscent of the setting sun. The back of the instrument is gently convex, creating a sloping resonance chamber that amplifies the timbre and volume of the instrument almost supernaturally. Engraved upon the fretboard is a parade of silver nightingales, each in various moments of flight.

    Has been :( Klendathu has ruined me for life with these and they stick out like neon lights.

    I'm not sure why people like to point it out. It's not incorrect to use.

    It isn't incorrect, but passive vs. active is an argument long won, and active is almost always superior.
