    Not sure if anyone else has read these stories – I thought they were excellent adventures with the added bonus (and relevance here) of the central character being a anguissette (*)

    I thought the tone and style of the central chacrater, Phèdre nó Delaunay de Montrèvenovels may fit very well with the site and its (well fulfilled) aspirations? 🙂

    (*) An anguissette is a mortal chosen by Kushiel to set a balance back in the world. They are marked by Kushiel with a red mote in their eye, referred to as a wound unhealed. They are essentially extreme masochists, finding pleasure in pain. Their function as Kushiel’s chosen is to restore balance to the world in some way. They have the benefit of healing quickly. A D’Angeline who kills an anguissette will be tormented in hell for a thousand years. However, if the killer is a scion of Kushiel, he will be tormented for ten thousand years.
