Eno - Polemik - part 1
In the beginning there was family. The father shining harsh light, burning away all that is not right. Giving life and taking it. The Mother reflecting what is cast upon her. Cold and unforgiving. Beatiful and mesmerizing. Eno harboring life on its surface. A place where the strong prey upon the weak and the weak covet. Others too distant to be seen and yet their precence is known. In the midst of all are the children born from the mother and made pure by the father. Remaking themselves in constant creation.
And it came to be that children fell upon Eno and great cataclysm came. Above surface burnt to ashes. Seas boiled to steam just to rain once more down to the cinders of Eno. The cycle was halted and half of Eno was scorhed by the father when the other half was frozen in awe of the morher. And inbetween them a never ending tempest.
the children rose from the sea. They chose children of their own from the few that survived and from those that did not. And they rose to the great mountain of day and night and from there they gaze upon their children and the world.
excerpts from "The ramblings of a madman."
In the village of Polemik all is quiet and peacefull. The most prominent (and the only) businesman of the village, Hans Lyypek is strolling down the quiet street as birds chitter on trees.
He looks up and sees that the village healer and a crazy person, Martha Maadolin is in the tree conversing with the said birds. He looks at the sight with a pitifull disdain and continues his journey to the village center.
The center is no more than a few houses build in circular formation surrounding the well of the village. Few stands house the market circle. There are stands for veggies and fruit, honey and wool and other produce of agricultural nature. There are also stands trading game and gathered food stuffs like berries and shrooms. The village is a fairly prosperous one and Hans Lyypek thinks he is mostly to thank for that.
The fishmongers stand stands unpopulated for there has not been any fish on the nearby river for a quite some time. The fact that Hans has set up nets upriver before the village to catch the fish and trade them for stone at once hostile village of kraak has got absolutely nothing to do with it. And if it would have something to do with it then so be it! The raids from kraak that used to plague the village of Polemik had ceased and the stone the village gets from the trade would one day be used to make something great!
Hans is headed for biggest house (biggest with a small margin as pretty much all the houses are quite small) of the market circle. The house houses a tavern and the village hall and is located between the buildings which will one day
be a bank and a church. Hans walks in the main (and only) hall of the building and sees that the man who is both the Mayor and a tavernkeeper is behind the counter serving his fellows beer and counsel. Hans heads to the counter to seek neither.
"Hello Mayor" says Hans.
"Well hello there Hans" replies the Mayor.
"I saw Mary up a tree on the way here" Informs Hans.
"Yes, but did you see what she was doing in the tree?" asks the Mayor.
"Talking to the birds." Hans replies.
"And I asked her to go to the squirrels for the nuts!" wailes the Mayor amused.
Hans is less amused
