The article, itself, already uses “Home is where the Hearth is,” so I can’t really do that one again. So, I’ll go with “Happy Hearth’s-Warming, everyone!” A few of you might get that, anyway. But enough on puns of this player’s name, Steamforged is show...

When it comes to the Latari Elves in Runewars, they don’t need a Lorax to speak of the trees. The trees are perfectly capable of expressing themselves on their own. Which means woe to those that would try and do harm to them or those that protect them. They are the Aymhelin Scions, and theyR...
