Inktober 2020 Part 1


October 1, 2020 – Fish

Being a pirate is easy. Being a pirate on Earth was easier. Being a pirate on Themis is really hard. Being a pirate on the losing end of an encounter with the ships of the Knights Templar, the Vikings, and the Elves is really bad. Surviving the encounter itself is not the bad part. Finding yourself in the Themis oceans with the fish is where things get really bad. On Earth, there were legends of something called angler fish that looked pretty scary. Here on Themis, the angler fish would be an improvement over the demonfish that occupy the oceans. Between the monstrous looks and the monstrous teeth and tentacles, the demonfish almost makes one miss the sharks of Earth.


October 2, 2020 – Wisp

Willow trees on Themis are the gathering spot of the wisps. When an elf dies, their spirit leaves their body in the form of a wisp. That wisp then begins a journey to return to the willow trees of the elven lands. The wisp has until sunset to return to secure its spot in the line of returning to life. Those wisps who fail to return to the willows are lost forever as the banshees of legend.


October 3, 2020 – Bulky

Trolls are bulky creatures. Being a magical mixture of stone and flesh makes one bulky by nature. The larger the troll, the bulkier it is. While trolls of Themis are known by other names on earth, from the largest to the smallest they are merely trolls on Themis.


October 4, 2020 – Radio

Radio was once the primary form of contact for military operations. While the term is still used, radio now refers to anything involving military communications from satellites to computers. Orders once had to transfer over radio waves to get from the headquarters to the troops on the ground. Now headquarters can deliver orders directly to the individual soldiers.
