Dojo Darelir, the School of Xenograg the Sorcerer

Excerpts

I am in the habit of taking excerpts, indeed entire passages, from books I read. I do this primarily for role-playing ideas. Thus my notes are heavy with history, mythology, philosophy, and the supernatural. All sources in this section can be found on the Works Cited page. Also read my Book Recommendations.

I have since expanded this to include excerpts from film, television, and other websites.

Excerpts on War

Excerpts on Magic

Excerpts on Rulership

Excerpts on Life
