History of the Drow of GyarkalithuThe Drow first came to the planet Gyarkalithu circa 500 BL (Before Lawrence) under the leadership of the explorer Korlun. She led them to a massive cavern beneath the surface of the continent now known as Lahar, establishing a Kingdom of twelve city-states, with herself as Queen.History of the Drow of Gyarkalithu by Alkonium
Following her death with no designated heir in roughly 200 BL, a war of succession broke out between the twelve city states. After eight years of bloody stalemate, the leaders of the twelve city states met on neutral ground to discuss a peace treaty. Due to their inability to decide on a successor for Korlun, they instead opted to reorganize her kingdom into a loose alliance of city states, with no one drow controlling more than a single city, with rulers holding the title of Prince or Princess, rather than King or Queen. In the two thousand years that followed, this alliance would come to be known as the Principalities.
Despite this new form of government, the Drow maintained their tra

Rhiga and the DrakeRhiga stepped silently as she walked through the cave, taking care to make no sound. Her soft, pale yellow feet trod uneasily over the cold stones, but she didn’t falter. The female dracon’s red skin was easy to spot in the light, even more so when one considered her pale underside. Fully aware of her coloration, she stuck to the shadows where she could. Fortunately for her, she traveled light, clad only the common vestments of female dracons: in a loincloth and a top. She was armed with a pair of daggers, and she also had a small pouch tied to her waist. Stealth was her greatest ally, for while she could fight, she was not built for close combat. Rhiga’s body was lithe and agile, but her fangs were small, her claws somewhat blunt, and her endurance was nowhere near that of a male of her species. Even her two horns weren’t particularly sharp. While dracons had the appearance of a humanoid creature with draconic features and gave the impression of being natural-bRhiga and the Drake by Noguy

Ceraline and Laurewen were sitting together on the sofa in the main hall of Chameleon House when the door opened and Garadun stepped inside. Ceraline looked over and let out a short, sharp squeak of glee when she saw him and hurried across the room to greet him with a big hug, Laurewen on her heels.
"Where have you been?" she asked, looking him in the eyes before hugging him again. "We've been so worried about you!"
"Didn't you get my letter?" he said as Laurewen added her own hug.
"Yes, but we were still worried."
"Cera, I'm fine. See?" he said, opening his arms with a smile.
Laurewen kissed him on the cheek. "You went to see Sassafras? Why?"
"Well, about that," he said and took off his duster, draping it over the back of one of the room's big table's chairs. He hun

Depressed and angry, Garadun spent the remainder of the day in a real bad mood. He kept to the edge of the woods and followed the river along its course. Several times boats and rafts drifted past, with those aboard occasionally calling out and waving. He ignored them and kept on with his march. There were individual homesteads and cabins here and there along the way as well. He trudged past them and the petitioners who lived there without a word. They let him be.
It wasn't hard walking. The land was easy on the feet and following the river meant there was no chance of getting lost. He took short breaks now and then, usually to enjoy a bit of scenery while he gave his legs and feet a rest. He'd packed some food in one of his pockets and ate while he walked.
As the light of day failed, he turned into the woods and began looking for a place to make camp. It wasn't difficult. He selecte

The streets and avenues of The Lady's Ward were different from those in the rest of the Impossible City in that they were broad and open, where a cutter could easily see huge sections of open sky. But they were colder and more inhospitable at the same time; far less people walked those wide boulevards. They were kept swept clean and there were lots of regular patrols of both private houses and the city guard. This was a ward of the rich and powerful, the high-up lords who ran the city: nobles, bureaucrats, high priests and the criminal underworld; the latter known as knights of the cross-trade.
It was called The Lady's Ward not because the Lady of Pain lived here or was seen here more frequently, but because her tools for running the city were kept here. This included the City Court, the Prison, the Armoury and the City Barracks. Which of course attracted the most wealthy and influential folks.

The ideas Garadun and Abigail had about the Daern's Instant Fortress proved to be true when they returned to the City of Doors. Upon arrival they made the trek back to the Sunken Treasure along the wet, grimy streets of the Cage. In fact they simply exchanged one wet for another, because when they left Faunel it had been raining and when they got to Sigil it was also raining. The difference of course was that the former had been clean and refreshing in a tropical climate, and the latter was dirty and chill.
Ceraline and Laurewen wanted to set up their case near the Sunken Treasure for a variety of reasons, and Garadun had no call to disagree. It took some searching around; the streets and avenues of the Clerk's Ward, especially those near the Civic Festhall, were crowded and generally in good shape, unlike the slums of the Lower Ward. But they managed to find an open lot two streets away from Hull Road, between a b

If she hadn't known she'd just gone through a planar gate, Lilyglade wouldn't have been sure that she'd actually left Arborea. They were still in an impressive forest, and the trees around them were of the same titanic size as those in her homeland. Then she noticed that the woods around them weren't as dense as those of Arvandor, and of course there was no sign of Lolth's Grove.
"Did we make it?" she asked.
Garadun looked skyward and turned slowly in place. He smiled. "Yeah, we made it. We're in the Outlands, no doubt about that." Shilling gave a happy miaow and jumped out of his pocket to sniff around at his feet.
"How can you be so sure?"
"I've spent a lot of time in the Land." He pointed up. "Take a look around you. Notice how it's nice and bright with daylight? But look closely: no beams of sunshine coming down through the leaves. The Outlands has no sun or moon or stars."

Away from the River Oceanus, the eternal woodlands of Arvandor grew denser and even more overwhelming. There was simply no way for someone like Garadun, who wasn't a ranger or druid or native sylvan being, to not become hopelessly and irrevocably lost. It was wild and ancient beyond conception, and there would be no end to it – not in this part of Arborea. In the lands surrounding Mount Olympus, yes, there was far greater variety to the landscape: fields and mountains and valleys and lakes and rivers broke up the forests. There were villages and towns, and of course Mount Olympus itself. In Arvandor there was only forest. Sure, there were hills and streams and even the occasional small open meadow, but mainly there were just trees and more trees. Most of which came in the giant economy size, with elms and oaks the size of redwoods, and redwoods the size of skyscrapers.

With Shilling in his pocket and Lilyglade flitting at his side, Garadun made his way past the green dragon's enormous corpse and over to the cave mouth. Shilling sniffed, made a face, and sank a little lower in his pocket. Garadun shared a look with Lilyglade, and then they crossed the threshold and began their descent into the depths of the earth, the soft light given off by Dûrgaläd guiding their way.
The cave floor was at first a mix of rock and hard-packed earth, but gave way to solid stone after not too long. The stench of chlorine was bad and got worse the deeper they went, mixed with other foul odours. The tunnel twisted as it went down, then eventually levelled out somewhat. They entered a large cavern, the floor of which was carpeted in bones from all manner of creatures – the remains of the dragon's meals. Down the centre the bones were crushed and broken into small bits, marking the beast's passage

The colossal stone hand, even partially covered in vines, creepers and growth as it rested in the underbrush among the trees by the riverbank, was kind of hard to miss. It was lying palm-upward, its fingers open and the stone deeply weather and cracked. Garadun, ever on the alert for possible danger, had been the first to spot it. Almost a week had passed since the Queen's minions had left Arborea and this was the most interesting thing they'd seen since then.
"Would you look at that," said Garadun, standing and pointing.
"There's something you don't see every day," Lilyglade remarked.
Shilling miaowed cheerfully, wanting to contribute.
"It must have been part of a freaking huge statue." Garadun quickly turned the boat towards shore. It didn't take him long to bring them close to the riverbank, and Lilyglade flew off to investigate the giant hand. Meanwhile, he came alongside t

Nothing else smells like blood. Especially when it's your own.
Constantia blanched at the wound in her stomach. She never could turn her head well in this helmet. The bit of skin she saw was tinged blue. Not much time left.
The grating of metal on stone forced her to crane her neck. A tall balding warrior with long sideburns pulled an embossed gorget off a well-to-do condottiero, one among many corpses littering the alleyway. The moldering brick passage was a riot of tangled victims. The creature had ambushed them here. Hmm! Here lay the well earned proof of its name: the Beast of Ramona. She never even got to see it well. It slumbered now. Dawn was coming.
A lithe dark haired woman with a scar down her face stood guard just past the tall warrior, a deadly looking double crossbow perched over her left leg. Constantia remembered them now; Brodus and Dustine, two adventurers from the eastern frontier.
Per usual, this disaster had started at a tavern. It was named the Pig and Whistle,

When Ceraline and Laurewen came through the portal into the Hall of Speakers from the Plane of Air, they both looked around with a smile. It was good to finally be home. Lilyglade followed a couple seconds later, and although she didn’t think of Sigil the same way her friends did, she was also glad to be back. The City of Doors might be dank and wet and smell bad, but at least it wasn’t boring.
The Boundless Blue had proven to be incredibly dull. Apart from the one elemental pocket from the Quasielemental Plane of Lightning and the citadel belonging to Dis Blak, they’d encountered virtually nothing at all in the month they’d spent in the Blue. Plenty of fluffy clouds and as much fresh air as you could want, but that was it. Not one single monster or interesting event. Not even any more elemental pockets. If it hadn’t been for the crew to interact with, they would’ve gone mental from boredom.

Three days later Garadun was on the move again, having come up with yet another one of his ideas. He was the first to admit that his mind worked in weird ways. Being on the world of Great Ocean had got him thinking about Prime worlds, which got him thinking about Earth and then Shou Lung, which somehow led him to thinking about Ceraline, which surprisingly had got him thinking about her father.
Ceraline had no idea who her father was. Her mother had never told her much about him, other than he was a human from the Prime Material. Garadun knew it bothered her, and she rarely talked about the man because if she did it usually got her upset. The very first time she had told him about her father and her mother’s refusal to tell her anything about him, it had gotten on Garadun’s nerves. Her mother’s attitude was, in his mind, petty and stupid and selfish. Why shouldn’t Ceraline know who her father was? Eve

There was no mistaking the Big Tangle once you arrived. As cluttered, thick, overgrown and shadowy as the Tanglewood Forest was, it was open and bright and airy compared to the Big Tangle. The forest was filled with oak, ash, maple, birch and pine, among others. Here there were no trees, not as such.
In the Big Tangle were only the roots of trees; roots so gargantuan they were as broad as trees themselves (often even greater than that) and forming a canopy so thick it was like walking in a series of caverns. Even at midday the light was dim and gloomy. A few vines and creepers wound their way around the roots, with mushrooms and fungi here and there, but that was about it. And truth be told the roots weren’t those of many trees, but one tree alone. The greatest tree in all the multiverse.
These were the roots of Yggdrasil, the World Ash, whose roots and branches spanned across the planes of existence; from the d

When Tom Hobbs, the Unlikely’s Steward, knocked on their cabin door to inform the girls that the stronghold belonging to Dis Blak had been sighted, they all breathed a sigh of relief. They had been in the Boundless Blue for over two weeks and the voyage had been, for the most part, exceedingly dull.
The encounter with the ginormous elemental pocket from the Quasielemental Plane of Lightning on their first day out from Signpost had been a very dramatic introduction (if somewhat frightening for a certain faerie) to what could possibly be found in the Plane of Air. Unfortunately, it turned out to be the highlight of the outbound trip. For days afterwards there was nothing but endless sky and clouds, broken up now and then with bouts of bad weather. No air elementals breezed by, no djinn came a-calling, no monsters needing to be valiantly fought off as they attacked the ship. They saw birds on a few occasions, and another

In the midst of the great Shah'qel Desert, lies Par'dis a city of wonder; of wealthy excess where it is said that anything can be found for a price.
Here, any and all pleasures can be found within its festive streets, no delight or excess beyond the grasp of the merchant houses, who are as many and varied as the cultures that reside within.
However, if one were to dig around deep enough they would hear of the prophecy.
Eight great champions would arise this generation.
They would battle and the victor shall determine if this era will be one of light.. Or of darkness.

|Welcome to Neo Dungeon Crawl ! |
We all know about Dungeon Crawl and what it stands for thanks to the original officer that was here before. If you had forgotten let me remind you DungeonCrawl or DC for short only applies to D&D only with settings relating to dank, dark places like caves and mazes. This is now called New DungeonCrawl or NeoDC for short.
Now why is it called NeoDC ?
Dungeon Crawl is now a development forum to also include Digital and Analog game development as well as tabletop game development for players and dungeon masters.
No one has too feel left out because they have no experience in table games or have no experience in game design.
This is a group has has all functions and that is making games using anything you are good at.
NeoDC only has a few goals
Talk to other people with similar interests
collaborate with graphic designers and game development people
what will be created will be the following.
tabletop RPGs ( D&D )
digital ( video games )
analog ( card and board games )
Dungeons and Dragons will always be here that will not change. Why will it ?
Submission GuidelinesAll gallery must take on a new form.
Officer Code of Conduct====
The tavern and here may be related but they are still 2 separate groups with different officers.
