In Zudrugund Library

Magieriel has decided to visit the old and crumbling library of Zudrugund. It is not quite forgotten, as the two dwarves Nar and Frithgeir tend it still. They alone are not enough to prevent the slow decline of the building, especially as Nar’s hold on sanity is not the best.

The entry hall however is still magnificent, with the still-functioning lights and dwarven statuary.

She looks over the books, deciding on one high on a shelf.

Zudrugun Library - I want that one EDIT

The sturdy stone desks are still in great shape for her to study her chosen text.

Zudrugund Library - Studies EDIT

Not all parts of the library have held up so well however. The damage here is extensive and the thought of all that lost knowledge makes her sad.

The Red Dragon

Rumors of dragons have always been around Middle Earth. Some have proved true – like Smaug. Recently though there have been rumors about another dragon, one in the Misty Mountains near the old lands of Enedwaith. Of course these rumours abound with tales of gold and jewels also. Anmorata has decided to go see if these rumours are true, as she has always wished to see a dragon, and if she can just *borrow* a little gold she would not mind 😉

Off she goes on faithful Absinthe, time to find this dragon!

Red Dragon Travelling EDIT

She locates a clan of wild men, the Draig-luth, who worship a dragon totem. This leads her to believe she might just be on the right track here. They are fierce men, but they are no match for this peerless champion.

Red Dragon Draic Luth EDIT

In the mountains past the homes of the Draig-luth, she finds a cave mouth high on a hillside. She walks inside, and her eyes open in wonder! She cannot resist tossing a few of the gold coins up into the air.  Clearly she has found the Lair!

Red Dragon Rich Discovery EDIT

Deeper into the cave, she finds the dragon himself! He is the mighty Draigoch, powerful and dangerous. She makes her way down to a lower level closer to him, and in a moment of foolish bravery – mocks the dragon.

Red Dragon Mock EDIT

Anmorata’s adventures in the lair of Draigoch end here today. She will be back, but in the company of friends and battle companions. While the dragon is a magnificent creature to behold, he is a danger to these lands and must be driven out or killed. With a band of boon companions, Anmorata will do so! (And she did make it out with a few gold coins in her pockets)

Her outfit is:
Chest – Golden Host Coat of Haleness in Crimson
Legs – Leggings of the Moon-Lands in Red
Shoulders – Ornate Pauldrons of the Dunland Swordsman in Crimson
Hands – Gloves of Forbidden Love in Crimson
Feet – Aculf’s Leather Boots in Crimson
Back – Recovered Cloak of the Crossroads in Crimson
Head – Balanthol in Crimson
Sword – Polished Ancient Steel Great Sword of Combat
Bow – Death-puller

Absinthe is wearing:

Champion Halter and Champion Caparison – undyed

Here is a shot with the helm (I really don’t like helms so I rarely use them myself) that I felt went best with this outfit. The bow I used here happens to have come from the skirmish camp, but I’ve seen the same bow appearance drop from mobs, so no need to use the marks if you don’t wish to.

Red Dragon Helm EDIT

Elementals – Air

I wish sound could be conveyed in picture form, as the location of these shots is rather windy.  The sound of the breeze through the trees and the motion of them made this a lovely place to take these shots, as well as the lovely scenery 🙂  Perhaps one day I shall take a few videos here to try to capture that feeling!
