Inktober 2019 Day 1: Ring in Staff Events | World Anvil

Inktober 2019 Day 1: Ring

Today's Prompt:

A dark spell from a circle of blood,

    a cursed item with a brutal history,

      a clandestine organization with no name.

        Rings are closed systems, portals to secrets.

 

Tell us of a ring from your world. What is its story?

Taking the definition of "ring" a bit loosely, here is the "ring of influence" for the vast space empire (a concept in progress). https://www.worldanvil.com/w/mudewei-rudysb9/a/the-leaders-favorite-people-article

I love this concept! I'm not comfortable sharing my drawings, so Inktober is always super awkward for me, seeing all these talented folks. But WRITING? That's my JAM! Here's my day 1 article, the Ring of the Admiral. I already had an idea for this item, but Day 1 being a ring made it click :) Ring of the Admiral

Just to let you know, for me it looks like you left an empty post. If you posted a block link it might not work. Just thought I should let you know since there are people who's block links don't show for others.

1:31 [Ring]   To quote, “rings are closed systems, portals to secrets.” Who better to personify than the eternal cycle of The Courts of The Kings? Familiar superstition to the Pa’xo’Anman of the North, the lunar phases are shown with their emblems and sigils: the White King depicted as the coiled #rattlesnake; the Red King, the silent copperhead with eyes of fire. The battle rages, the moon turns, blood spills and soil devours.

My world is still in very early development, so everything is in bullet point format, but I've wanted my world to have a planetary ring so this gave me a chance to brainstorm some basic details. https://www.worldanvil.com/w/andraous-northwhitewolf/a/planetary-ring-article

The Ring of Faith and Fate
Item | Oct 4, 2019
A small, slightly humorous look into one child's homework assignment, a lesson in not insulting people's religions (less they give you homework). It's not so much a story about The Ring of Faith and Fate, itself, as it is just a brief look at what some kid learned from like 5 minutes on the internet.
