The White Company: PrologueThe natural luminescence of the two moons watched the congregation of rebels as they soundlessly traversed the rocky floor of Grayhaven's north wall. The steep slope to their right staggered them with uneven footing, attempting to put a damper on their advance. Grayhaven was a towering structure of a high outer wall system and keep that spanned the northern ramparts. To make matters worse, it sat idly on a mountainous crag. It got its name from the gray stone that was quarried from the northern mountains. Once home to the vast drider, Dominion armies flushed them out like pests and assumed control over the mines many years ago, swelling their already expansive markets with fresh resources.The White Company: Prologue by Courier2001
Bomond lead his group along the high crags, ceaselessly hugging the wall to refrain from meeting a pulpy end down the mountain slope. Living in the post-Purge era, Bomond was the Company's only able bodied mage. He used the inner magic that hummed wi

"What do we got?" Foster barked, marching strongly into the control room with assault rifle held in his hands. A technician keyed several sequences into his holo-computer then looked up, his face grimly pale.
"Sir, our motion sensors in the eastern ruins have detected a stalker in the area."
"What is it doing?" Foster approached the technician and eyed him intently with disciplinary gravity.
The technician took in a deep breath. "I can't rightly say, sir. It's just toppling cars and other debris. It appears to be searching for something."
"Yeah," Foster growled, "us."
The soldier keyed in a sequence of numbers on the holo-pad on his wrist. A series of muted beeps ran rampant before a connection was established. "Wood?" Foster said. "Wood, can you read me?"
A static filled pause caused Foster's spine to ripple in suspense before his comrade's voice finally echoed through his COMM. *Just ba

A furtive movement out of the corner of his eyes attracted the attention of a young man of about sixteen years, perhaps a little older. He was already quite tall, with a lanky, wiry build that spoke of lots of physical activity on top of a diet that had oftentimes been less than sufficient. A half-circular scar was visible over his left eye but it was hardly the only injury that had left a mark on his body in his short but already full years. A fact which his choice of gym clothes today was making people aware of.
Until now, the young man had been wearing a light but long-sleeved running shirt for the period of physical education. Since it was just slightly oversized, the wrinkles of the shirt had had the effect of concealing just a little bit the play of his muscles as he moved. It wasn’t exactly the most effective way to hide what his intentions were, but all the tiny efforts added up in the end. Today, however, his wardrobe had come up lacking, a result of the loss of some clo

How I would define 'Lesser Known'
If you ask an average person on the street, chances are they will know what a Unicorn, a Vampire or a Dragon is. Considering the boost in films like Harry Potter they might even know what a Phoenix or a Basilisk is. Chances are though, the average person has never heard of a Selkie, a Manticore, or a Wyvern. These are the type of things I would call 'lesser known', and what this group is for.
There are creatures and myths that not many know of. Do not focus all your attention on the common beasts such as vampires and unicorns, look into the past and discover all the fascinating tales told by the people of yore!
This group will accept things such as:
Creatures from mythology
Interpretations of common monsters
Lesser known fairy tales and myths
Classic game monsters
Species from a show or movie
Even things from your own stories!
Follow Deviantart's rules, and there should be no problem!
Do not submit art that does not fit the groups theme
Do not submit art that isn't yours. If it was drawn for you by another artist, ask the artist to submit it to the group.
Do not spam the group, troll the group itself or the members, and just don't be a general nuisance.
I'd like to join!
Great! Just click the big 'Join our Group' button in the toolbar there at the top, and you'll be automatically accepted! Then you can go ahead and start sharing your art!
Why was my art refused?
First of all, don't take it personally! We do not judge our submission by how skillfully they are created! If your art was refused, it is either because it does not fit the theme of the group, or you've just submitted it to the wrong folder.
Please feel free to voice your opinions and suggest things I can do to run the group smoother! Things like new folders, or new rules!
