For those of you who are new around here, all of my stories are direct impressions and thoughts written from an in character perspective of events in the game. The Journals however are a once a week recap of whatever Ardenn remembers engaging in, and whatever book hes writing in is considered a physical object. If he's robbed or seduced or in any way parted from his book, the knowledge within a specific period of dates will be attainable by whichever character attains this book. Additionally, after 13 entries, Ardenn selects a guardian to flat out give the book to and those characters have the option to either keep the information safe or read and act upon its contents.

However, these journals also have a slight encoding feature. All players will be given a diffrent nickname and no de-coder list will be posted until the data is nolonger valid. Some people can figure out the names from the way things are discribed, others have had trouble.

A few of you have heard rumors that I'm paid to run social experiments on the community. This is not quite correct, rather its a twisting of old information. When I first started writing these journals, the game was still Pay-To-Play. Some people who didnt have time to play the MMO but wanted to know about the Lore and the world we all play in, were willing to pay for my subscription with the deal that Ardenn would pursue topics they wanted to see some expansion on. When the origional backers pulled their fees as the game transitioned into Free-To-Play, a few RPers who didnt have time to play any more paid for a years advance to keep me in game and just exploring everything in general.

Those deals have long since ended and I am nolonger receiving any bonuses from writing other than for my own (and your) entertainment.

Poll will be open one week.

If interested in past stories, you can go here to check out the index that people demanded me to make around book 5.

(The books in this index are difficult to find. If you are interested in having your character find any of the old books, let me know. #8 is the only book that is permenantly out of circulation.)

I had meant to write a new one, techncially. :P I cant recap Ard's entire past unless someone were to collect the copies that were made by the Guardians as the origionals were all burned to ashes by Dorado.

I was considering writing #10 with the tittle "Life as an NPC" since Im mostly a Bartender and Sang's Guardian at the moment. More a bystander than activly generating RP.

As far as I know of, certian Journals also had copies made. Like Wolfshead made copies of his for personal reading (Which means at least one is in a Trav library somewhere)

Votes sure went in an unexpected direction this week.

As an additional note, if you dont want to be written about at all, you can drop me a message and Ard will find convinient reasons not to mention your character/avoid interaction. (The only time its unavoidable to write a recap on a character is when they're the center of an RP I walk in on. Doesnt happen often though.)

New journals will get posted thursdays. Please remember, the journals will be from Ardenn's point of view, they do not respresent allt he players feelings and emotions, beleifes or the beleifes of the FERP admins, 'cause I'm not a mod and this is roleplay after all. :P
