Welcome to the thoughts of a Dwarf. This intrepid site is designed primarily to allow a place where I can store all of my writings, be it stories or poems or illogical philosophical rants. I hope to be able to provide interesting reading material for my friends and the random stranger who somehow gets sucked off course and finds this sight. Feel free to comment or even request stories. The more inspiration that I have, the more I can explore the limits of imagination and using literary works to rest for a moment from the tedious demands of reality.

In the beginning, I will be uploading many of my already written works. Though most of them are written for the gaming website Achaea.com, which is a text based MUD that I have been playing since 1998. My current main character in Achaea is the Dwarven Paladin known as Goryllin. His viewpoint is used in many of my current stories, as I draw upon his life and his world to create the science fantasty realities in which my story characters dwell.

Achaea is a medieval setting fantasy world, filled with Dwarves, Humans, Trolls, and many more fantastical races and professions. It is a living and breathing world in that every player has a chance to change the world and its direction. It is a player driven roleplay enhanced realm where combat, life, death and yes even taxes are all a part of the experience. We wouldn't mind having you drop by for a visit and pint of ale, if you do visit please send Goryllin a message and he will be glad to help you.

To my Darling

Comparing you to roses seems so trivial

So instead I searched for another analogy

Yet when I considered the rays of the sun

Even they did not do my feelings justice

Staring into the wonders of the universe

I still felt that something was missing

Gazing at your gently sleeping visage

My heart swells with untold emotion

No more requests linger now

Knowing the warmth of your hug is all

Satisfying the deepest wishes

I write this poem to ease the pressure

Of the feelings raging in my chest

To lie in your embrace ends the struggle

Heals the wounds of weary life

Ignites the fires of the moment

Gives reason to continue this fight

A harbor against the storm

With your hand laced in mine

I feel the battle already won
