The First Snow


In the highest peaks of Shiverspine, a family herd of yeti was snoozing quietly in the warmth of the cave. The sun shone so brightly outside that it woke up one of the young males. He rubbed his eyes and yawned.

Still a bit sleepy he dragged himself out from the tangle of yeti limbs and furs. He made his way to the cave entrance and slowly descended to the valley below. It was his turn to hunt today and he was looking for anything that he can take back, but recently it was becoming harder to find food with all the human activity. As he was scouring along the white snowy landscape, he caught sight of something furry hidden in the snow but revealed just enough for his keen eyes.

*Crunch crunch crunch* his soft steps barely made any noise. His eyes squinting as he was edging ever closer and then with a mighty roar he pounced. His mighty form crashed in to the snow and with a victorious smile he sat up with the fur still in his jaws. Plucking the fur out of his mouth he realised it wasn’t a meal but instead it was a hunters cap with some silvers rattling inside. The realisation brought tears to his eyes and streamed down his furry face. He wanted to throw those useless things away but he couldn’t. His code wouldn’t let him.

After he had finished crying he pulled himself up from the snow and headed along dejectedly towards his neighbours, the spiders, ice elementals and wargs. With his enthusiasm crushed, he hoped that the spiders and wargs can direct him to some food. Upon approach, he smiled and waved at his fellow neighbours who responded with an appropriate limb type. It seems all of them were having an intense discussion about the human invasion again.

He was chatting to them when suddenly a fireball shot out and struck them. Bursting out from some random tree, the group of vicious heroes (or perhaps it was a single hero?) showed no mercy to the innocent little group. How can these humans be so ruthless? As the yeti lay there, he saw the hero pick up the cap and silver with a malicious grin. As the world slowly swirled in to darkness for the yeti, his mind wandered to his family and the future of his friends.

Above, the yeti herd watched in horror at the events that transpired below. Outraged by the brutality of the heroes, the creatures of Shiverspine formed an alliance to try to repel the human invaders.

Throughout the years that followed, more and more heroes came. It wasn’t only heroes which were attracted to the majestic peaks. Outcasts, criminals and opportunists even found a home, learning to live beside the creatures. None of the native inhabitants would’ve imagined that eventually even the humans became a part of life in the white mountains.

Fan Friday Poem by Chopst1xx

As the sun rose high,
and the crafting, rather tedious
Grew a strange noise,
The voice so serious

It was a man on a bear,
Polar, by appearance
He spoke with great haste,
some chatter about a clearance

He spoke of "Scornyx, Shale,
Gobazollas and More!"
But what I had my eye on,
Appears more like an orb.

They're purple, shiny, oh what a treat!
A stack for 560, the price can't be beat!
As we began to cut deals, issues arose,
My poor friend, his connectivity froze.

Now the sun doth set, the moon now aglow
You ask if he returned, the answer is no.
So I continue to tredge, all the while kicking dornick,

Because I still do not have,
Any Motes of Yorick.
