Legends say this is where heroes are born...I'm told this is where I start, so here goes. I'm a drow. I grew up in the passive agressive, down and dirty, cut throat world. I learned quite a few skills there, but what I learned most of all is that I hated it. I hated the politics. I hated the backstabbing. Not to mention, I HATE lies and secrets. This dark society just wasn't for me. Problem. I had troubles with sunlight. Migraines, illness, dizziness, pain. This was the first wave of a whole slew of problems. Did you know that if you try to communicate with a surface dweller using nothing but sarcasm and passive aggression, that they don't react the way they should? I've met many races, and many different rebels and adventurers, npc's and more. I've found that very few understand the headspace of those of us from the darkness underneath. Huh. I commited myself to learning about this surface world and how it works. Once I got past the initial problems with sunlight, the communication barriers, and the change in air quality, I started to see colors. This world had so many colors. So many people. So many places. So much more variety. So here is the...well not the beginning, as my journey began many years ago. This is the beginning of book one. Not book one as in "the first book". This book one is what comes after the hobbit. This is my fellowship of the ring. This is where I start becoming aware and making my own choices. So I'll start with the challenge. I, Ayancia (for now) resolve to start here: I will replace one processed snack every day with something natural. I will eat one vegetable with one meal per day. (At least) I will walk every day, and that's not including my normal transit walking. I will meditate. Every. Day. Something has to help me get used to this surface world. So, if you can see it in your heart to trust and encourage this wayward Drow, it would be much appreciated. (Though don't be surprised if I'm unsure of how to show my appreciations to you surface dwelling creatures.)
