pyraxis: j-t as Sen from Spirited Away (j-t)
A smiling man by a campfire animatedly tells a story to a small group of people around him. The young boy listens entranced, the teenage girl looks at him coyly and the old woman has a melancholy smile. Campfire smoke curls up through the storyteller's hands and into the evening sky. Rocks shelter the camping space and the view behind the man is out over a dry valley with scrub plants.

When storytelling goes wrong )

The storyteller has the power to touch people's hearts, to capture them and hold them. The real test of his character comes with what he does with them afterwards.

Who do you allow to tell your story?

A bare-breasted older woman sitting in the crook of a tree, looking out with a broad mischievous smile. She has a cloth sarong wrapped around her waist and a neck ornament made out of a chain of coins. Another web of coins hangs down from her waist. She has long, prehensile toes, red-orange hair in dreds, and she's holding an ornamental staff.

T'noui is an elder of the Tirothi, a shapeshifting people from Karn. Their other form looks something like a triple-jointed lemur with fangs. They live on woven platforms high up in trees in the jungle. They're known for their gemwork and craftsmanship of all kinds, their love of sweet fruit, and their constant chatter.


This has been brought from the [personal profile] shashigai, the storytellers of Karn.

[personal profile] shashigai has been planning his NaNoWriMo project for this year. A griff story set on Karn. :D Yesterday he showed me a photo he took that's so perfect I wanted to grab it and make it into a mockup of the book cover. (There's also a version with his IRL name.)
I also designed a seal for the back of the book. )
