Author's Note: This is for Rounder's Challenge, which goes as follows: Write an article with the title "Yurt Herders"; genre is yurt, theme is herders. IF YOU ARE ROUNDERHOUSE, DO NOT READ ON UNLESS YOU WANT TO INVOKE THE WRATH OF SOMETHING !

Yurt Herders

Come with me to a vision of a lonely night in a field. The flat field was covered in long, green grass, which was doused in sparkling dewdrops from the previous evening's mist. Scattered on top of the grassy expanse sat yurt tents made of woven cloth, held up by wooden shafts and strung together with sutble threads. To any wanderer passing by, the tents would be found as nothing more than glowing rounderhouses with cooking fires and lanterns, filled with the soft whispers of less than a hundred nomads: a peaceful scene, to be short.

But this is not a peaceful story, else you would have asked Orica instead, eh?

In one of these well-crafted yurts sat a young boy by the name of Iori. Instead of chasing the dogs throughout the camp to better understand the mutts, or chatting with his friends to better understand his people, he elected to sit by his lantern and read one of the rare books in the village. How he looked was like you, with wind-blown black hair and tanned skin. He was strong as well, and unlike what you may make of him, he was very charismatic. In fact, one would normally find him chasing the dogs or chatting with friends, but tonight he wanted peace.

True to my word, this was not to be.

A few minutes later, Iori heard the sound of a heavy fall off to his right, towards the village. Then, a scream followed. Iori quickly left a piece of old and useless leather in between the pages he was reading and poked his head out from the tent. The first thing he saw was a flash from his right. He pulled his head back in as a sword sweeped down where his head had just been. The village was being raided by none other than the Yurt Herders.

Hello world. This is one of my project goals, as provided by Voksa: Story idea: A record of conflict between serpent's hand and SCP foundation people, but written in the tone and style of ancient epic poems like Beowulf

This may seem daunting, but since I want to help create a canon (Some of which may seem better suited for the SCP wiki) this is perfect to set the scene.

Source for Beowulf: http://www.mit.edu/~jrising/webres/beowulf.pdf
Source of Beowulf Summary Research: https://www.britannica.com/topic/Beowulf

Okay, so from summary research sourced in Britannica, this appears to be the basic outline: Two parts. One of Beowulf's arrival and one of his reign. Three battles, two of which are against related villains in the first part, while the last is a dragon battle during Beowulf's older age. 9-9-11-9-12-9-10-9-11 is around the rhythmical pattern here (EDIT: Refer to this— https://www.jstor.org/stable/pdf/434620.pdf?refreqid=excelsior%3Acd689b7093d1a120d45b6be6c12de61d and this https://lrc.la.utexas.edu/eieol/engol).

PAUSE. Short poem to just post smth. Also, I need to do much more reading than I had expected; in the meantime, I will write for Alexios' Fate. Stay tuned for updates.

Unfinished Business:

Fucking Crown Press Needs a CC image !! !! ! ! ! ! ! http://wanderers-library.wikidot.com/from-the-crown-press Roget affirms that these are Greek Ruins in an attempt to help my inquiry. I firmly believe he is wrong because of other sources that have the same image. On that note, none of the other sites have provided a CC compliant image; look into replacing or do more research…
I asked the author about these two, no response yet:

Note: On the discord, I asked Dr Wakefield(ask them this one too: http://wanderers-library.wikidot.com/wakefields-archive) and Shapethrower each about one of their works, no response…I don't think it would be proper to bug them again, but I'll see to it that I find the truth.

Welcome to the Wanderer's Library.

The Wanderer's Library is a collaborative fiction exercise. It's a collection of stories that explore strange and fantastic corners of the world, hidden from ordinary eyes. Some of the stories take place in the distant past, taking the form of legends and fables. Others are from the modern day, hiding in the shadows just out of sight. The basic premise is that there are strange things that are not quite of our world. Some are dangerous, some are merely fascinating. They are all in some respect extraordinary.

A big game hunter searches for hunting in other worlds.

A creature lives in alleyways and junkyards, collecting bits of trash to disguise itself.

A red thing of many parts promises everything you have ever wanted.

Stories here should try to evoke a Sense of Wonder, a sense that there is a larger world beyond the one we know. In the world of the Library, these wonders are hidden, but never truly far away. But never forget that this is a wilder world than our own, and it's never entirely safe, either. Tread with care.

Give the rules a once-over. After that, choose your own adventure:
