Exiled: At the Gates
Exiled: At the Gates
        The Wazao Estate turned out to be some kind of castle, built in the times when castles were a practical defense measure. The roads leading up to the estate had been repaved into modern roads, but they still held the ancient slopes engineered to make attackers run through death while the defenders laughed from behind fifty-foot high walls and football fields worth of killing fields, fields still clear of any hiding place. The double curtain walls, winding pathways, and rooftops of the estate were festooned with gargoyles and statues of great beasts. Every third statue had conspicuous gems inlaid into the rock, marking it as an expensive magical construct made of living stone and undying vigilance. There were security cameras, magical trip wires, servants with discreetly enchanted steak knives whose supposed purpose was to serve the line of guests refreshments as they waited to be admitted. Kole kept his dismay hidden as he once again put

Exiled: A Special Occasion
Exiled: A Special Occasion
         Kole finished toweling his hair dry and pulled his coat on. A second glance in the mirror told him his teeth really were clean. Kole didn’t bother double checking his hands. Getting under his nails and finding all the inconvenient creases had become as easy as cleaning a gun. Kole wandered out into his living room-kitchen area. A brownish red spot on one of the fake tiles near the sink caught his eye. Kole draped his towel over his camp chair and grabbed one of the napkins he’d helped himself to at Joey Joe’s. He bent over and scrubbed the spot off his tile. Kole was glad he’d noticed. Any kind of blood sets horribly if it’s left alone. The dirty napkin went in the grocery sack filled with balled up and bloody napkins. Kole dismissed the bulging sack from his mind. He’d expected it to be a bit messy. At least he hadn’t gotten much on the carpet.

The Investigation
The Investigation
         “What do you mean, don’t investigate him?!” Sandy slammed his hands on the desk.  “Why put me on the task force and then tell me not to investigate our first real lead in years?”
        “Calm down Sandy, you’re making me look bad,” Sargent Nava hissed at the sand elf. “As disrespectful as he is, Officer Sed does have something of a point, Sir,” the orc said more loudly, facing Chief Rhidnar who watched the two of them with an infuriating calmness.
        “Allow me to reiterate then. Officer Sed, because of your discovery of this lead and generally well-reviewed performance as an officer, I have decided to transfer you to the Whealen Task Force. Your current partner, Officer Merrick, will be given another partner for the time being. In addition, I am denying your request to remain a beat officer despite your passing the detective training exams for the seventh time,” Chief Rhidnar said.

Exiled: A Hunt Interrupted 2
Exiled: A Hunt Interrupted 2
         Kole sat in an antiseptic waiting room in Herrington General Hospital. The walls were as bleakly white as his mood. Kole wasn’t watching the woman whose daughter was in surgery or the dwarf with a broken arm waiting for his wife who’d been in the car accident too. It was a relief, not going crazy over their blood. Inside the hospital and the ambulance, he just felt weak and horribly tired. It made sense that his thirst was easier to control inside: the powerful wards required for accredited hospitals and certified ambulances canceled the blood smell. They made fading life force and vulnerable souls harder to see too, not that Kole was interested in those. The wards were a sensible, if expensive, precaution against magical attacks of all kinds, and were just as necessary as the mystical injunctions preventing the opening of portals on the hospital’s suffering-soaked grounds. Kole leaned forward in his seat

Exiled: A Hunt Interrupted
Exiled: A Hunt Interrupted
         In his dreams blood flowed dark as wine from broken bodies, coated the floor, coated the door, dripped from his knives and rolled down his arms until it looked as though he wore gloves. And every drop, and every face belonged to a friend.
And he laughed.

         Kole’s alarm clock dragged him from his nightmares. His ears still rang with imagined screams. The feeling of forcing a knife around obstructing bones shivered in his hands. Kole knew that half-numbed feeling in his fingers. It always came after long nights of knife fighting. It felt real, not like the uneven ache of training or the dull ghost-feeling of memories. The memory-tatters of the dream burned hot in Kole’s mind. He dragged her out of her hiding place by that hair she loved to decorate and dragged a knife edge across—Kole shook the dream image from his mind. The images kept being replaced by him

Whispers: Rumors about the City
They say in Thelin you can buy anything, even souls.
They say in Thelin there are people who will buy your dreams, your memories, and your fears.
They say that the desert is a sleeping dragon and the sandstorms are its breath.
They say the desert was a rich mountain kingdom filled with fruit and peace until the ancient kings sold it to a demon for money and everlasting fame.
They say the desert used to be plentiful until the god of the sand elves died. They say the oases are its blood seeping out of the ground, one last attempt to nourish and protect his people.
They say the sand springs from the decaying bodies of dragons who come here to die.
They say the desert is an unaltered product of the natural patterns of rain and wind. There aren’t many who believe that.
They say the desert contains the bones and riches of five of the greatest empires the world has forgotten. They say sooner or later, Thelin will be the sixth.

Resource: IJST Rating System
The Inter-Jurisdictional Supernatural Threat Rating System:
[This is more useful for law enforcement, military, hunter, and government-type characters. Normal citizens will understand the idea, but won’t know the details and the media uses a watered-down version which means they might even have the wrong idea about how the system works.]
   The Inter-Jurisdictional Supernatural Threat Rating System (IJST Rating System) was invented by compiling a large number of previously used systems of ranking potential supernatural threats into one ranking system that applies all of the various methods of determining threat levels and gives the more accurate information than older ranking systems.
   An IJST rating has several parts. The standard format of an IJST rating is #-LLL#-L-# where # represents a number and L represents a letter or combination of letters. There are longer formats that include more information, but the standard format is the shortest format

Resource Legal Definition of Demon
Legal Definition of Demon
   Legally a “demon” is “a universally malicious or evil spiritual entity.” This means that, by law, anything (or species) that is generally evil and comes from the spirit world is called a demon.  So, technically an evil ghost, like a wraith, is considered a demon. But, in practice these entities have to be very powerful, very evil, or come from the right corner of the spirit world to actually be called demons.
    Wraiths, Japanese oni, doppelgangers, draugr, and every other type of evil spirit that is not always really super evil, or has a more specific name are generally called by their names and aren’t usually considered demons. However, anything that has a main diet of children, likes to steal/eat souls, comes from the right corners of the spirit world, or calls itself a demon is always considered a type of demon.
The time tested Police and Hunter rule for when to call something a demon:

Resource: The Demon Blood Index
The Demon Blood Index and the Eldest
   The Demon Blood Index is a registry held in common between Thelin and several other cities and governments who feel it is necessary to keep records of various somewhat demonic individuals. The Demon Blood Index contains information about individuals considered dangerous and suspect because of their ties with demonic entities, including a link to any relevant history of mage or blood crime, their Inter-jurisdictional Supernatural Threat Rating, and any demons on the International Demon Watch List that an individual has connections with. The Demon Blood Index is mostly a resource for law enforcement, tactical response, and military agencies that have the appropriate skills and permits to be granted access to the index. However, concerned individuals can request information on specific suspicious persons for rather loose reasons, provided that they are willing to wait up to two weeks for a response. The most honest reason for checking the

Resource: Thelin's Trinity of Law
An Excerpt from: "A Short analysis of Thelin City's Trinity of Law"
By Dr. James Yalken, S.J.D.
Department of Law—Thelin University of the Magical and Scientific Arts
The street level administration of civic and criminal law in the great city of Thelin is accomplished by one of the most varied and complex systems of enforcement currently employed among all the great nations and city-states.  Over time, the ancient order of city guards has developed and branched out into the multifaceted system of law enforcement commonly called the "trinity of law."  While discussion of the history and gradual development of the trinity of law is a highly valuable tool for any person seeking to enter law enforcement, or understand the deep and somewhat troubled waters of trinity politics, only the bare minimum of historical detail necessary for understanding the current situation will be covered in this report as many books can and have been written about that extensively detailed subject.  If the

Interests
Mostly because I've had that old journal entry up for at least a year and it's about me being off of DeviantArt for a week because I was going on vacation.  Obviously, I have since returned from that vacation.  Yeah.  That's pretty much it except for shameless promotion for the three of you who are listening and probably don't need the promotion because you're already involved.
Come join ThelinBuilders and participate in creating a wonderful and varied setting in which we all play around and cause horrible, horrible things to happen to our characters. (The current population of main characters in Thelin includes a serial killer, a former monster hunter, a thief + his demon, and a black market trader.) The setting is modern urban fantasy with a bit of dark turnings and some sci-fi.  We'd really like some more members, and about the only requirement is that we can tell what you're trying to say or draw and that it doesn't require an 18+ content filter.  If you don't know about joining, please give it a look.  Who knows, you might find something interesting.
