Salute to Skafloc

Recommended Posts

I haven't been able to think of a way to pay my respects until just now, and I hope this is a good way to do so. Rick was a great writer and I always enjoyed reading things he posted in Nether Legends.

So I present to you a (partially incomplete) list of his RP stories. I wanted to link to everything he's written, including stuff in posts by others, but he's just so prolific that I've narrowed it down to stories he's started. Some of them aren't "stories" per se, but all are worth posting.

As Lupa:

The Cleansing of Atal'hakkar

The Saga of Lupa'Jin

Amantes Audere (Mature Content)

Met Tet

The Mission

The Serpent and the Tiger

The Last Hunt

The Plea

Spirit of the Wolf

As Upae:

Wild Child

A Letter to Amadare

Whole Again

A quiet beer by the fireplace

As Noury/Nouri:

Nouri the Heretic

My Fair Heretic

Randall Hunter's Riding Academy

The Holy Proclamation

Weather Woes


The Patrol

Affairs of the Heart

Advertisment in the Gadgetzan Times

The "Tower"

Ill Winds Blowing

As Skafloc:


The Gardens

Silvermoon Inn - A Party

The Presence of Presents

A Tale of Two Houses

Lovely -- The Doom of Lovely

Hunter's Pow Wow

A Radical Solution

The Answer

To Be A Gunslinger

Roots of the Tree



The Calling

In The Hands of the Enemy

Hell To Pay

To Kill A Dragonhawk

Chocolate Decadence

Death's Embrace


Sunset Serenade

The Surly Wench


To Build a Home

The Frost of a Man's Soul

I've looked up all the forum accounts that I know are him. If I've missed any characters, or if any of these links are wrong, please let me know.

This list is not complete, but I tried to grab everything he made significant contribution to, as well as a good smattering of smaller contributions to show how he was always willing to RP with anyone.

I know a few of these were posted as characters that he kept secret, so if you didn't know he was some of these characters, enjoy.

Also, if someone know of other characters that I missed, let me know :)

Oh, and Skafloc's journal Personal Archives which includes one of the most beautiful things he wrote.

From :

A wolf sat down on a rock one day;

A brief respite from a bout of play.

With a sudden flurry of wing and claw

A raven set down beside his paw.

In the verdant woods of Feralas.

The wolf was enamored of the bird,

So smitten he was he could utter no word.

Her ebony feathers dark, her eyes so bright,

Reflecting the stars of the warm summers night.

In the moonlit woods of Feralas

“Come hunt with me, stay by my side,”

He asked the raven, his green eyes so wide.

The raven preened her feathers and cocked her head.

She smiled at the wolf, “Mmhmmm” all she said.

In the love filled woods of Feralas.

Long weeks they spent together in play,

Sweet nights they enjoyed at the end of the day.

Wolf and raven together a pair,

Never was there a bond so fair.

In the storied woods of Feralas.

One day Wolf dashed into a cave,

Raven followed her mate; she was so brave.

When wolf emerged he sought for his love,

But there was no Raven swooping down from above.

In the dangerous woods of Feralas.

Long he sought her in places far and near,

He found her lying in pain and fear.

With broken wing she could not fly.

Wolf cried in sorrow for it seemed she might die.

In the tragic woods of Feralas.

Long days and nights he tended her wing,

He fed her, held her, sweet songs he would sing.

Yet though her wing did mend from his care,

No joy returned to the heart of Raven fair.

In the sad woods of Feralas.

“Why do you weep my love my mate?”

Asked Wolf one day, but it was too late.

For Raven had seen that which Wolf had not.

She loved him dearly, but a bird he was not.

In the quiet woods of Feralas.

“I cannot go where you do my Love.”

“I need to soar high with the Hawk and the Dove.”

“Should I run with you through bush and wood,”

“I fear my wings shall break for good.”

In the weeping woods of Feralas.

Wolf cried for a time but nodded his head,

He loved her so much, he would not see her dead.

“Then go my love, fly unto the sky.”

“But listen at night, you will hear my cry.”

Of love everlasting.

In the bittersweet woods of Feralas.

Raven took flight and soared to the sky,

An eagle circled the airs up high.

She joined the Eagle and together they flew,

Wolf watched them vanish into the sky so blue.

Over the green trees of Feralas.

A wolf sits down on a rock by day;

A brief respite from a bout of play.

At night he sings to the moon filled night,

A mournful call, to a Raven in flight.

In the verdant woods of Feralas.
