Beritta Answers Your Questions

We had a couple people leave questions for Beritta a few weeks ago. Today Beritta has returned to answer these questions.

J-dawg asked:
How is playing pranks on people putting your talent to good use?

Beritta's Answer:
I just play pranks to pass the time. Most the time the elders have my friends and I running errands so we don't really use many of our abilities. I create pranks which help me practice old tricks and keep my senses sharp by thinking of new things to do with my talents.

Wren asked:
Beritta, have you ever thought of secretly disobeying the elders and doing good things with your talents? Starting some sort of young elf secret organization that's rebelling against the elders?

Beritta's Answer:
Well of course I've thought of it! I can see you've never trained under the elders or you wouldn't bother asking that! In their classes the elders push you so hard to learn all the basics and find your abilities. Then you get to what they call 'a higher level of training' and they have you doing nothing but errands for months. After a while every elf begins to wonder what the point is and why we ever listened to them in the first place. Some of us just do more about it than others.

Thanks for the questions readers! Feel free to continue this discussion in the comments box.

The Song of Nomenie

There is a legend on Irowasa which tells how the stars came to be in the sky. According to this legend a young fire spirit named Nomenie wondered the world, taking pity on those who lost their way in the darkness of the night. Nomenie is said to have taken to the sky where she became a guiding light for all travelers. Many fire spirits followed her example, filling the sky with the lights we now call stars. Nomenie herself became Irowasa's northern star. Children all over Irowasa know this story in much the same way children in our world know fairy tales. There is even an old folksong for the star, Nomenie. So, without further ado I give you the song of Nomenie!

The Song of Nomenie
There is Nomenie, the northern star.
She knows the secrets of the night
and can lead you on a safe path, even on a moonless night,
to the harbor of dawn's rays, out of darkness into light!
So I'll follow where she leads.
A fixed star shines true and can never go astray!
