I love the picture, Laurna.  Nice way to set the scene for the road ahead.

Laurna that is a beautiful picture -typical of British uplands. How did you include it in your post?

You can link to nearly any photo found online using the icon above that looks like a framed picture.  (On my screen, it's the one under the B icon.)  The coding for it will look like this, except with regular BBCode square brackets where I'm using pointed ones.

<img>http://InternetPhotoHere.jpg</img>

You can either copy/paste the link to the online photo here and then highlight it and click the picture icon above, or you can click the picture icon and then copy/paste the link between the two bracket sets.  Just make sure you get it between the two bracketed codes, not inside them:

<img>Like this</img>

<img Not Like this></img>

<img><Not like this either /img>

Also, make sure it is the photo itself you are linking to rather than just the webpage it is on.  The URL should end with .jpg, .gif, or some other ending that indicates it is a photo file.  One way you can be sure you are linking just to the image and not the page it is on is to right click on the photo and select "View Image" from the menu that appears.  (It might say something slightly different in your browser; I am using Firefox right now.) Then when that photo appears on a page by itself, you can copy the URL in the webpage address and paste it into your post.  Depending on where you found your image, it might be set up to prevent it from being copy/pasted, in which case you might just need to find some other image or upload your own.

There is a way that you can upload your own photo as an attachment also, but the problem I've found with that method is that some people can see it and some people can't.  (I can always see attachments on another forum I'm on, but there have been times when I could tell there was an attachment to a post here but I couldn't see it.)  To use that feature, click on "Attachments and other options" below the edit window, and where it says "Attach:" you click on "Browse" and find the photo file on your computer to attach to your post.  A thumbnail is supposed to appear in the post (once it's posted) that others can click on to view the full sized photo, but as I said, this hasn't always worked for me in the past.  However, if you want to link to a photo that is on your personal hard drive rather than online, and you don't want to have to upload it to Flickr first or some other photo hosting website, then that's the way to go about doing that.

When posting a photo from Flickr (at least if it's your own, since I'm not certain if Flickr will let you post other members' photos), there is a special process for doing that, which I would be glad to share if anyone here wants to do so and needs a tutorial, since Flickr doesn't make it as simple as just copy/pasting the image link.

The picture was in the Ghosts of the Past thread.  Laurna had posted a photo along with her latest scene.  The question had come up (here in the Out of Character thread) about how one goes about posting a photo in one's post, so I was explaining how that works.  I did not link to an actual photo link in the example I posted, since if I'd done so, all readers would see was the photo and not the explanation for how it works.

Or are you saying you are unable to see the photo of Gwynedd's grasslands in Laurna's last game scene?  If that's the case, that's a new problem entirely and one we need to look into.

Found it. I was looking at INC first  and saw the picture when I went back to GotP. Reminds me of William Bkake's poem about England  "that green and pleasant land" Just substitute  Gwynedd  for England

The ghost in Valoret is alluded to in "Eleven Pipers Piping" one of the "Twelve Days of Christmas". That Andrew McGregor has anything to do with it is a spoiler for the story I haven't written yet, partly due to time  -I write desperately slowly -and partly because I got enveigled into joining a role-playing game. "It'll be fun", they said!!
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Revsnne, you write wonderful stories and they are well worth waiting for, I did read generosity so I knew something about the ghost   but when you mentioned Andrew and the ghost in the most recent game post, I thought I might have missed something. Hope you are enjoying  the game because I really enjoy your  contributions .

Clearly Sir Wash has gotten a hold of some non-(Torenthi)-cursed dice!  :D

In all seriousness, get well soon, Bynw!
