..to provide Easter eggs to be hunted, dear friend.

That's why you get a gift egg every year, dear friend. Your kind greetings, presented by Suntop himself, are a long-standing tradition and completation. Thanky you for being here, PC. Always.

The first gift eggies showed up and will be bartered into bigger versions:

As usual it's Skywise, mischievous and flirting, on chrysocolla.

Topics tagged under 14 on Father Tree Holt 2020_p10 - for PCoquelin ... thanks for the assistance, Moonlight!

For weird reason young Suntop often longs for a dark background - a coloful opale.

Topics tagged under 14 on Father Tree Holt 2020_y10 - for Yeee

Haken Twisted Evil - who else considering our roleplaying stuff - emerging from pietersite!


And then there are still nest eggs to find ...
Wolfie Hungry Wolf finally found Bearclaw's body. Now the lost ones rest together in Good Friday's nest - and live on how Elves do!
Moonlight reunited the brothers in all but blood ... but there's still someone missing for a trio!
And there are still MANY other eggies waiting to be found! @Yeee, @katcombs ... I call you merfolk to catch special swimming prey! And anyone else can join in ... Fishy

Update about egg lying around unfound:
#00 - 1 eggie (look at the partly filled nest ^^ + Nightfall, Redlance, Pike, Strongbow, Krim ...?)
#01 - 🐰well filled
#02 - 🐰well filled
#03 - 🐰well filled

Does this mean I can count on you for next year? albino In this case you better make some more posts. ^^ Or spoiler-tabs ... XD
But first you better go on one more hunt, Redhead Ember ... or invite Moonlight to hunt for your gift egg!

Thank you for the appreciation of Lady Ravenwing, Leanan Very Happy ... I have redone her on the Huldra maker. Now the scene shows how it was supposed to be (and some bugs are fixed).

Lovable choices for the Seasons Faires. Like Maleen for spring was a surprise - but she plays well! Delicate and cool ... her bodice mimics the blossoms on a leafless spring tree. ^^ Ruffel bursts in pink with flowers and fruits - all the fullness of Summer. Her playfulness shows through. Vurdah represents Automn amazingly well. Skirt and top suit her style and the sunflower wreath is perfect for her. Somehow the wings seem to reflect her pensive mood. I like that she is a brunette this time ... see her like this all the time.
Winter is coming - I want to see Aroree in her. The hairstyle kinda fits - ice blue could be her color. The white mane ... we have seen her with white hair too, right? Last not least Newstar as variant Spring - she would have been a natural choice for me. Dressing her in snowflakes and blossons is genious!

WOW Shocked ... they are perfect, Leanan! Why has no one before discovered the human cast for dolling?
The symbol maker - best background choice for Nonna! The variant outfit suits her well. Shuna is simply spot on! Sweet Elmy has grown - staying true to her style and still working button necklaces. ^^
Absolutely believabel Lady Venovel. You've nailed her look and mood. You've made Tingeh - pretty in blue, flirty and in love with Khorbasi. Another wonderful interpretation of the midwife - Shenshen would love to wear exactly this! Last not least Jink ... this outfit must be canon! Seriously. I can so see it.

Amazing collection, Leanan, as if the Viking maker vas made for them. and I am officially adicted. @_@ MORE! Please more. O.O
Will you complete the Viking series with Hartha (FQ #10 page 1) and Moli (FQ #10 ... the group where you've found Tingeh), please? And maybe add Bolli (HY #14).


Now for another facet of Lady Ravenwing - shapechanger and illusionist

OOPS ... I'd lost my bet! You have gathered the "not so mysterious" 3rd eggie, Kat. Wink You've recognized the quote?

Most nests are showing well filled now - others still miss eggies:

#15 - Skywise, Wendy Pini - who'll complete the trio?

You are going for the old missing ones, Kat! sunny Very appropriate to close nest #07 on a more propitiate note. Yes, Wavelet was "caught by Humans" too - with much more pleasing results.

You were successful on a long hidden egg, Wolfie.  Hungry Wolf  This girl in the Palace looks very much like Maleen  - couldn't resit to include her in the BIG nest.


Two hunters snatched away all the eggies for #13 Suspect ... please remember the 48-hour-rule, friends.

Who would have thought this elder one is so sneaky! Shocked  ... one of the earlier dropped eggies for the BIG #00 shows now as it is supposed to be!
Eggies for nest #14 will follow this evening/late night ... and there are still 4 old ones lying around for hunt.

Please ... give your co-hunters a fair chance for some fun when you already were successful on a nest!

This nest holds a Redhead-special element. ^^ I'm curious whether you will bring in the "special", Red!


All the older nests show well decorated again. sunny
Kahvi and Berrybuzz were guided by fae. Redhead found an egg-maker and Kat brought in Tyldak.
Little Patch had to be found a second time by Wolfie to be labeled "found".

Honestly - it was the first idea that I got from Christina's new comment to get the minimum of 10 characters for the headline. Well, even Christina Raibert mellowed and likes him now. Couldn't find an old enough file with the original title ... the "cleaning and clearing" by the Scroll admins made things so cold and impersonal. Sad

The pacing really isn't bad like I thought. It's the 2 month wait between the issues that makes it appear much slower than it is...

I finally picked up my copy of Final Quest #14 (although this first picture was complete prior to my doing so) and I thought I'd finally put up a pic or two of mine. (Edited to remove spoiler: Sorry!)

Here's the first: A reworking of my IC self, Twopaw Tarnished-Silver, drawn entirely on my WACOM Intuous (the first one in quite some time) tablet:

And this is a picture of 2Paw's Dam (partly based on my own, with her permission), Wintersong; War Chief and all-around happy camper:

in order to gather my previous thoughts from the Final Quest #14 discussion:

@Embala wrote:
@faeriegirl wrote:
Wendy said this on Facebook: "EVERYBODY! Right now! Stop calling them "tree elves!" Call 'em "fungus amungus" if you want. Anyway, this image could be misleading. You don't know when or even IF we'll meet these new elves. But if we do, rest assured this is not a rehash of LOTR or any established fantasy you've ever read. Keep thinking outside of the box."

Those Treefungusmungus Elves or whatever they are supposed to be called ... I had some thoughts about them. Got distracted by my own little Christmas project. Well, trying to take Wendy Pini's word's literally ...

... what do we know? (or think we know based on EQ and what we SEE)

1. The trio totally looked like TreeElves when they were introduced. Colors and texture, mossy hair and knobbly limbs, even sprouting leaves. This does not mean that they have ever crossbred with Abodian vegetation. Selfshapers and healers can create this mimikry ... leaf adornements included.
And they are probably mobile to some degree - Lady Tree spotted a perfect leg very similar to Winnowill.

2. On the cover of FQ #14 those tree bodies look as dead as they can be. Falling apart, rotten and decomposed ... but these elfin creatures obviously are still alive. Though I like to call them TreeZombies I don't think EQ would pull a Walking Dead.

3. They are callled the "most hidden of the hidden".
Hhmmm... small Wolfriders dwelling in a forest Holt, Sunfolk living in an isolated oasis, Gliders hiding within a huge mountain and Wavedancers in the seas - all are well hidden. And all of them were discovered by Humans ... Sunfolk and Wavedancers later than the others. (We don't see the Go-Backs had problems with human settlers so far.)
Living in a forest camouflaged as trees would be better hidden ... but does it qualify as "most hidden of the hidden"? They can be discovered by Humans just like Wolfriders and their habitat can be destroyed like the Holts or Sorrows End.

4. We know that Elves (Coneheads) like to exist as a hive mind. The Coneheads pretty much formed one. The Gliders tried to achieve it. The Wavedancers are described as a shoal.


Some years ago when there was talk about a Final Quest coming I wondered where we could find other, unknown elves. I thought of an unknown continent - Hearthstone with its vukcano and the hinted dangerous elves seemed to be an educated guess.

Another speculation was about a different culture in significantly different envirionment. So far we had:
Ground dwellers - the Wolfrideres in the forest, Sunfolk in the desert and Go-Backs in the icy plains.
The Gliders were basically air dwellers, flying elves locked away in a mountain.
Water dwellers in the sea - the Wavedancers.

What's left? My thoughts wandered underground ... could there be Elves inhabiting a cave and tunnel system like the Trolls? Or - living underground like Wavedancers live in the water? My idea was influenced by the "Terrians" from EARTH 2. Those creatures are totally living underground and seem to be able to "swim" through soil and stone like fish through water.

Elves who are totally assimilated to live underground would be NEW.


@Embala wrote:
Years ago I've learned the largest living organism on Earth is the Oregon honey mushroom ...

... and now Wendy Pini tells us: Call them Fungus Amungus!

What if ... a group of Firstcomes managed to hide from the WoTMs by becoming an integral part of this world? Can it be that they had magic users who discovered a mushroom organism underground and found a way to merge with it? Try to imagine ...

The elfin spirits live within this spreading organism, both hiding and thriving. These aliens would not have a problem to share a body - a hive mind is familiar to them anyway.

After 20 millennia they would not be interested in the Palace too much. The WoTMs is literally their home soil. And it functions similar as the Palace and/or the spirit sphere.
They are not able to travel to the Palace because their "body" is part of Abode's nature.
There is no need to do so because there are no immediate life threatening dangers. Fire, flood, change in environment and climate would not be able to kill the whole organism easily. In case the "elves" kept some specific magic to grant necessary adeptions this mycelium can live forever.

It would even fit with WP's remark that we might not see those new elves at all. You can walk over them and wouldn't notice!

So who are the FungGuys we've seen?

Then and now the fungus sprouts fruit bodies - visible mushrooms. Maybe they are individual spirits who "visit" the world above for whatever reason (possible reproduction included?). The fungus infects young trees, influences their growth to develope elfin shapes (because that's how they remember/envision themselves) and the spirits temporarily live as such a tree-fungus organism (first encounter).

As it is the nature of a fungus to consume its host the tree structure will die and rot more or less soon while the spirits still control the fungus part - the TreeZombies (state on the #14 cover).

When the tree structure is completely devoured the spirits simply return in the mycelium.


What do you think? Is there a possibility it could work similar like this?
