Taking up nearly the entire canvas, a curved blade is set upon a rectangular hilt. Not very menacing, really. In the Common language, it reads: "Sword of Doom" -- by Jastalyn Dragorth

A Key Painting

Haphazardly painted mid-canvas is a simple key. Or, it might be a lockpick. Either way, it's definitely a beginner's creation! In the Common language, it reads: "The Key to Life" -- by Jastalyn Dragorth

A Star Painting

Spanning the canvas from top to bottom is a six-pointed star. It's not perfect, but it definitely looks like a star. In the Common language, it reads: "Star Struck" -- by Jastalyn Dragorth

A Green Bay Painting

Swirls of dark greens sweep across the canvas between a magnificent rockweed-capped cliff and a brilliant cluster of club-fingered coral.

In the Common language, it reads: "Bay of Green" -- by Jastalyn Dragorth

A Snow-Laden Vale Painting

Diminutive but exceptionally detailed snowflakes are scattered across the entire canvas, silver-dappled paint mixing with off-white tones that give a shimmering appearance to the painted scene.

A Poppy Hill Painting

A Manor Painting

Tiny crisscrossed strokes in deep green create a lacework of ivy between the foundation posts of this stately manor.

In the Common language, it reads: "Home, Sweet Home" -- by Jastalyn Dragorth

A Roa’ter Painting

The painting's canvas is dominated by a huge deep red roa'ter frozen in action as it bursts from stony ground.

A humanoid, tiny by comparison, is seen in the lower left corner, arms raised defensively. In the Common language, it reads: "Rolling Ground" -- by Jastalyn Dragorth

A Rolton Painting

Nestled in a downy bed of verdant summer grass, the baby rolton is painted snowy white, blurred brushstrokes giving her wool a dreamlike appearance.

In the Common language, it reads: "Ride the Nightmare" -- by Jastalyn Dragorth

An Aivren Painting

Frozen in a formidable swoop, the meticulous detail in the aivren's leathery ochre skin gives the painting a life-like appearance.
