Re: Hey Man, what books and stuff have you read/seen out there?
When I sent my short autobiography, "The son of an Evil Emperor" over the net my father was glad that only 50% of the people who got it could read. Even fewer opened it thinking it might be a Loyalist Trap.
You remember, like that file some years ago that father sent out, Chapter Two: "The Basics of Magic." As soon as people opened it the cops had their location and arrest them for, Code 9, Subsection 11, Paragraph 01, "Attempting to learn the Great Evil."
Yes, I read both of those as well. In fact, I have read the entire Law and Order in the Coalition States and it's Territories and Magic for Dummies. Although, here in Tryth-Sal there are books that are far better than anything written in the Coalition.
I had a great time reading Chronicles and Ages of Vi-Riial, but I most loved the first story, "Foretelling of the Raging Skies." The Raging Skies happened only seven years back, but it was written over nine thousand years ago.
"The Chronicles," as they are sometimes referred to here, are in many ways similar to the old Bible of the Jews. It tells of a creation, the world becoming evil, some of the Lyn-Srial made a raft to survive a flood. Then the water took them up to the Islands of the Air. That last part reminds me of something out of Revelations or some other book in there. Remember "All the Isles of the Sea?"
Because of that idea I wrote an article by the same name in the Seasonal Skies. Most people here have never even seen a sea or an ocean, and I have only seen them on vids from the Golden Age. So one year I rafted down the river and made two movies. The first was on the trip down, called Lord of the Rivers, and the second, when I got there, was Big Brother: River of the World. Before I made that film the Lyn-Srial always thought an Ocean was just a big river, and the Colorado was supposed to be a 'normal' river.
The first I named after a play done in the lower levels of Chi-Town, Lord of the Rings. The story of how normal humans overcome the evils of the supernatural. The second was named for a song the bards tell about how the government sees everything you do ("Big Brother"), combined with a poem the Lyn-Srial sing about how the rivers watch over us ("Brother River, See us the World Over"). I felt it worked out well.
I heared it was even reviewed on the Silvereno TV show "Fennudi Fennodi Talks High Society Stuff." For now I do things for Lyn-Sradio's "Cloud Surfing: Coach on the Off Season," and I won the New Ambassadorial Anthem contest with my entry Fallen Sun, Open Skies.
This place, Tryth-Sal, is so artistic. They even have a name for each and every building as they are all works of art. I live in Towering Cliff Arms, a part of the wall that reaches out into the canyon like four great stone arms of a Lyn-Srial. The upper arms are even complete with a silky field of magic energy simulating the wings. My apartment is on the top thumb on the upper right hand.
Come visit some time, you would love the library and the plays. The architecture, as I have said, is the most exquisite I have ever seen. The people are friendly, and your old friend Shaildin now lives here. In fact, he lives in the thumb across from me.

P.S. You may want to buy a jetpack if you don't want to rely on others to keep up with us. Shaildin had a partial Borg conversion with one built into his upper back. We do a lot of flying together now.
Oh, don't mention fox's or golems around him, he just had a bad break up with a visiting Kancoran by the name of FoxFighter. Apparently he insulted her true name, 'Shame of Thunder and Glass,' and her golem beat him up.
