I would have had my DG boys talk about Isha if I had the time to actually sit down, read more about the Eldar and then come up with a way to introduce my characters. But alas, I don't think I will have the time (unless I suddenly do on Thursday and Friday but I doubt it).

Thank you for your entries in Inspirational Friday 2018: The Primordial Annihilator versus the Asuryani.

EesiOh returned to IF with a song, no less! The Beginning of the End :tu: I wanted more, though! Too short!

Scourged returned to a character he introduced back in May of 2016. In Envoy we see that the Scourged and the dark Eldar under Archon Yaelindra went on to forge some form of alliance, and he tells us of a gift presented by a sorcerer of the Scourged to his debauched hosts.

The Feast was Hushrong’s entry, depicting in great detail the Emperor’s Children assaulting a nameless craftworld. The action was excellently written and I think you captured the feelings of both factions so well.

In my first entry, Riven an Eldar guardian of Biel-Tan experiences the fracture of his craftworld and the birth of the Yncarne, but rather than joining the new faction he stays loyal and becomes a guardian of one of Biel-Tan’s fragments, defending maiden worlds. But it seems the craftworld’s Infinity Circuit was not entirely purged and a tainted soul was mistakenly saved.

And I wanted to read a story involving Nurgle, the captive Isha, and Eldar...it seemed no one was writing it, so I did a quickie. Another Way was about an Eldar who rejected the Ynnari and their new death god, in favour of setting out into the Eye to attempt to rescue the goddess who birthed them.

I hereby close that topic but if anyone has more stories on that theme, at any time, please post them here with a suitable title. I’m looking at you, Warpmiss ;)


And here begins our fourth challenge of Inspirational Friday 2018: The Hunt

Since proto-man learned to savour the taste of meat, humans have hunted. Be it for a base need such as sustenance, or the hunt for one’s nemesis, the discovery, tracking and capture or killing of one’s quarry is a task which challenges the best of hunters.

Tell us this time the tale of a hunt. For a foe who has wronged and eluded your protagonist, for a vital target -living or in the form of intelligence or data-, the hunt for a grand beast or worthy foe whose head would make a wondrous trophy, the hunt for the bearer of a legendary weapon the protagonist desires, the hunt for a weakness in a seemingly impenetrable enemy fortress...
Or perhaps it is your protagonist who is the hunted? Why? By whom? Across what terrain and through what dangers? Do they succeed in evading those who would claim their scalp?

IF2018: The Hunt runs until the second of March.
Let us be inspired.

And who shall judge this new challenge? That decision lies with our current judge: Scourged.

The winner of IF2018: The Hunt shall claim the Octed amulet:

And the honour of judging the next challenge.

Guys I think the Chaos Gods finally gave scourged his well deserved reward, he has ascended to daemonhood and left us mere mortals behind biggrin.png

I didn't even have the time to turn my computer on this weekend. Much less to even remember about the IF @_@

I think the upcoming weeks are going to be pretty much like that as well.

There’s no hurry for judgement. :)

And likewise, Warpmiss, there’s no hurry but if/when you do find the time to do some writing, please submit it here. :)

Thank you everyone! I am very happy that I had finally finished that short story for my Cult of Golden Tears and IF gave me that push!

 

Looking forward to The Hunt!
