    Im deciding to post this on the forum rather then update so though the chapters may be short they give what information i can. room for editing and willing for feed back at Trodorne5@yahoo.ca to send me ideas to improve what i have done.


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Introduction:

    Thank you for purchasing this book from my stand or from someone else who doesn’t need it or stumbled across someone else whose remains had this. This book will be a guide to telling you the basics of survival and how to travel on 100 eternia coins a week.

    Eternia.. As named far back as the planet has been here, is big.. Very big it is so big you would think that it would be like a quick walk to the city gates but it is nuts compaired to how big it really is. Oh its not the distance going around that would get you, to travel across Eternia without a proper guide one is liable to be lost, chased, found, entrenched, lost again, chased again, mugged, jarred, bruised, mangled, broken, tired, buried alive, and subjected to slavery, and finally killed only to have your bones used as candle holders for the nearest shaman sold at 2 coins a piece.

    Many of my travels I come across many people who live or know the area like the back of there hand, or paw, or what ever extremedy they have. So in this we will encounter natives and other species and the basics on what you should know on them.

    Now before we go its always important to dress accordingly so always pack two things, A scarf. And most importantly a bar of soap.


    The guides view on Soap; It would have to be the most useful tool for anyone to take with them on a trip. For one it’s a great way of cleaning one self after taking a nasty spill in the tar swamps of eternos, two. It makes for a great reason to get picked up by people passing by for now they can clean themselves up and will give you a ride to where you would want to go. And finally soap makes a handy weapon for repelling away nasty creatures, due to popular believe that the use of an energy weapon would have been a great way repel the ravenous bushberry bear of the evergreen forest. There are many creatures on eternia that for some reason will not eat a person after cleaning themselves with a bar of soap. Some people say that it could be the molecules in the soap that could be poisonous to these creatures, but a wild man who spent his life living with the beast and learning how they think had this to say: “the soap would just give a bad taste to the food”.

    Chapter 1

    Mystic Mountains would be said that they hold many secrets or mysteries of eternias past and possibly some great wonders that have not yet been discovered. To the miners in a small outpost town of Thull just on the outside of the mystic mountains think that it is a load of “shadow beast dung” says one miner.
    Its also here in this town one person can find a fight, a dirty drinking glass, and a possible most of transportation from a miner crossing through the mystic mountains on the price that you find them a clean drinking glass.


    Traveling into the mining town of Thull, be sure to know where all your stuff is at all times sometimes a place like this with very little royal gaurds around to enforce law it can get a little sticky. There are the occasional bar fights, when in the bar best to avoid the one man who has been working in the mines for a while with the really large hand.

    If planning to make the journey over the mystic mountains by foot.. Forget it the initial trail can’t be scaled by human feet, caligars have no problem as they can get up the mountains. But best to wait for a traveling caravan to come by and hitch a ride with them, but unfortunately the next caravan that comes through the area would not for at least 5 more days if you just missed them. Best find out from someone when the last caravan came through.

    Despite its odious appearance the miners club has some surprisingly good meals as they trade some bulk ingredients for some of the raw ore they take from the mines. So if possible I would recommend the Subternian Surprise.

    The Subternian Surprise will do just that give anyone or anything a surprise if tried to be eaten. The very meal itself came from a Spelean who tried to make a formula to give to a friend that would make all the hair on there body fall of simultaneously while giving him a bad case of skin rash. While neither of these effect ever showed up it did how ever give the poor spelean a burnt tongue and a increased temperature that made himself burst into flames.
    From time of its creation most people use this sort of meal to travel in very cold areas to suppress the bursting into flames effect as the body would fight the sub-zero cold. But even still to its effect for keeping someone alive in dangerously cold weather one still has to live with a burnt tongue.


    Once up through the mystic mountains you will hit a main path heading north west from the town. There would be a split path later on which would take you too Felis Folia to the south west, and Andreenos and Avion to the north. Dangerous as the road is to the Avian and Andreenid colonies it is always a sight to see. The path along the road is sometimes gaurded by either Andreenids or Avians but once out past of there areas its open game for creatures. The most common attack from monsters in the mountains would be a Nocturnal Flying Leech.

    One of the most ugliest and rather peculiar monsters to live in the mystic mountains would be the Nocturnal Flying Leech. Despite the fact it has no eyes this little creature like a bat makes a reverse sonar signal that allows it to find its prey, since there is very little life that comes through these areas they mostly hang around the kingdoms of Avion and Andreenos. These little things have a wing span of 4 inches and talon like teeth the latches itself to the host as it sucks out the persons blood. One man learned how to keep these things away after one incident where one attached itself to his neck. “All I did was imagine it not biting me and next thing I knew it was gone”

    Most other creatures in the mystic mountains are fairly harmless if left alone it’s the occasional critter that would decide to try to eat what food you might be carrying one of those items happens to be a subternian surprise then all I say is dig in.

    The mystic mountains during the morning and evening give off a rainbow like glow from the ores that reside in the rocks. So during this time its great to have a loved one near by and show them the spectacular view. Its also at this time you should make a fire and maybe dip a little into the Subternian Surprise as the temperature in the mountain range drop faster then the interest of a teenager who is forced to learn combat maneuvers while knowing the history of where its from or how it is used.
    As the time would pass in your travels it would be best to come up with a game to pass the time on your travels, one would be taking a scarf and whipping it to see if the echo of the whip would come back. You do this back and forth to see how much louder you can make it.

    Its actually a well known fact that if you were to stand at the edge of a mountain facing a valley you would be able to make enough noise from your altitude to jar all the creatures that would reside down below. But it also a well known fact that if you were standing at the edge of a mountain yelling into a valley to jar some animals you would indeed actually start a rock slide. In this situation you would have three options: one, curl up into a ball and hope that it does not fall on you. Two, keep quiet and run further down the road. Or three, make a lot of noise and try to out run the rock slide to the bottom of the mountain.

    After at least five days travel by caravan or fifteen days on foot that you make it out of the mystic mountains alive and unscathed give yourself a congratulations and now ahead is the desserts.

    The Andreenids a quite a facinating sort of beings as they are much like the Eternian plains honey bee, these Andreenids have more of a human like form as well as anyone could say run more efficiently then any human society there might be. The entire colony works to serve the royal family and yet even though they have other females they still just serve the one female the queen. There most desired and most poisonous to a human would be there ambrosia which only increase the strength and speed of anyone who eats it. It was only discovered that it was poisonous to humans when a party of Andreenids went to a festival and offered some ambrosia to the town mayor for inviting them to join. It was only after that the mayor could now lift wagons over his head but it was the after affect when he gained stomach cramps and pretended he was a honey bee. It was after this that the towns people decided to put him to work and he somehow managed to make a large comb of honey that the town enjoyed but died later that winter when he froze to death. It was also after he died that one person said. “That was the most work we ever got out of an elected official.”

    The Avians of Avion are quite an amazing group since they have wings that come out of the wrists they species have the uncanny ability to fly despite the very human body shape. They were once pointed out by a curious caligar long ago who called them “naked flying men.”. Avians use rocket packs to propel themselves into the sky and there wings act as a glider rather then actual flying wings. The best way to get a ride from an avian? Forget it all you will get is a face full of smoke, most will not help carry people for it would be hard for them to carry anyone across the mountains for a long while. The best thing they can do is help find your way since they do get a birds eye view. Avians are rather friendly as long as you don’t try to feed them seeds from the palm of your hand.

    Chapter 2:

    Ahh the sands of time. The best advice about traveling through there by foot. DON’T. Its big. Really big, big and hot. Big, hot and dangerous. its not just the heat that will get you but the giant worm creatures that I like to call Sround Worm.

    Shround worms as most people refer to as are worms that don’t really have eyes but make an image in their brain which would almost be like seeing but actually isn’t.
    Airgo cloudstrum, a teacher from Avion came up with a theory that the Shround worms were once people of ancient mythical city in records called Zalesia that were magically transformed into those worms. His work would be disproven later when he crossed a Deep valley potato with a Harmony Sea made Sponge. All he had to say was “It tastes horrible but it sure soaks up a lot of gravy.”
    The best advice for when you encounter a shround worm or if they are coming near you would be: 1) Hold really still until it leaves. 2) Learn to fly. 3) close your eyes and hope that it will be gone.


    Yeah the shround worms are bad but if by chance you don’t encounter them you will have a hard time with the heat. Many have fallen more to the heat then being eaten. You are probably best to travel at night since you can keep warm by a drop of the Subternian surprise. Its been found just a drop would be enough to raise body temperature without killing anyone. Mind you will probably be wandering in the desert partially naked as you do have to lose one or 2 articles of main clothing. When it comes to day time best to find a large sand dune and dig a small hole and make that your resting place for the day. To make sure to sleep through the day light just put your scarf over your eyes.
    There is a small oasis, just somewhere just west of the Sands of Fire. There is a group of nomads who have made a home there and have some shops. Depending on how old this book is in the future the people maybe be long since dead which would make this information useless.

    Nomads are common as well as merchant caravans and traveling circuses. If coming across them its best to not give a lot of information on what your carrying, nomads are no exception when it comes to water, they horde water as if keeping there very sister from going on a date with a dragon.
    Soap seems to be good for trade with nomads as some don’t wish to use a lot of water to clean themselves, one could barter 1/4 of there bar of soap for a refill of you’re canteen or refill of you’re extra canteen. Of course it is also noted that dance is a good form of entertainment for nomads as they do not get many people who come by and dance is a great way to strike a deal.
    It is also good to mention not to make a lot of pounding noises by such acts as dancing or chronic temper tantrums and such as they a track attention from Shround Worms.


    A few more hours east and you would make it to at least the sands of fire. From one hot place to another you had better have packed thick sandals cause those steps are going to be hot.

    The Sands of Fire has to be the most bothersome place to be unless you are a black spotted fire lizard. This place was named about 134 years ago when a Spelean and a Avion alchemists where trying to come up with a new revolutionary new experiment that would change a large portion into fertile land, but as miss calculation in the ingredients and a inebriated assistanted who thought it would be funny to add his mixture of fermented Eternian wine and Shadow beast skin shavings into his masters formula. It was at this time of the testing of this grand experiment when it quite literally blew up in their face’s.
    The chances of navigating through the sands of time without getting burned by the random columns of fire that appear, you would have a better chance of surviving a situation where you would poke a cranky Serpintaur in the eye, ask it what is wrong and not get eaten.


    Ok you thought the desert was hot... welcome to a whole new game here. Its bad enough that it is hot but random columns of fire that spew out of the ground. You would be better off going north or south to head for the coasts and follow that. For those who think life to short here are some tips to at least to survive in the sands of fire.
    First you will be sweating a lot, and yes that is bad the Black Spotted Fire Lizard has a sensitive tongue for any type of moisture in its territory.

    The Black Spotted Fire Lizard has got to be the ugliest lizard ever to walk on four legs. Not only is it ugly but its can suck the moisture our of anything with its sponge like feet which also act as a masher and shredder to cut, mash, squeeze all the moisture out of any object and absorb it through its feet. Which only makes its tongue and eyes the only useful things on its face.
    If you ever see a Black spotted fire lizard it will probably already know where you are. Its tongue is as dry and cracked like the back side of a caligar, best thing for you to do is rub some soap on you when you see one. Not only will it throw the lizard off it will also clean some dirt from those exposed areas.
    To scare off a Fire lizard for a bold person would be to show the creature a mongoose and despite its huge size it is terrified of a small mongoose. This was discovered when Morkal the cowardly magician from Lithos turned him self into a mongoose to try to hide from a Black Spotted Fire Lizard.


    If you managed to avoid the lizards at all your done the hard part. The easy part from that would be the random columns. The best way to avoid them is look out for dunes that quickly rise up. You would have a moment or two to move out of the way to safety.

    There isn’t much for people living out here but you might have a small chance of coming across traveling creature tamers who are wild men who live with the animals. Best advice to ask them for directions to the nearest town as they would know the land and area rather well. Just be sure not to ask them if they have anything to drink.

    Chapter 3:

    The Evergreen forest has to be the most majestic place in all of eternia. Even more majestic then Ahir Drollin’s book “Best views and eye sores of eternia” or the Ice Statue made of the council of elders, which melted during its own opening ceremony as several firework were set off near it melting most parts of it instantly.
    Its dense forest hold homes to the most assortment of creatures in all of eternia and to most people would be many secrets that the tall tree’s and thick groves would hold.


    The evergreen forest is a marvel of nature at its best but also a pain to walk through. Sure you can stand in awe of its beauty but that can sure fade fast as you try to tread through there. Its not just how thick it is in the under brush but its also the animals.
    A person who is traveling through this place can find a lot of materials here for food or to make shelter for the night. The Elder Greenwood tree’s are a great place to grab some Deep forest moss as a lot of it is used in any ingredients and a base in some cures or potions.

    Deep Forest Moss, despite the fact how incredibly useful it really is one must travel deep into the evergreen forest to get it. And not only that one would also have to fight chefs, alchemists, and many plant eating animals for it is very sought after by these three, it would take at least 2 days for moss to fully regrow after its top layer has been taken.
    The first time moss was used as food was when a group of adventurers were lost in the evergreen forest without food when one of the member thought to imitate the animals and start eating what they eat. Most of the group cooked the moss and survived until they were out. Unfortunately the one member who suggested to eat what the animals eat died of poisoning as the first thing he ate were Acid purple berries.
    The Moss is also used a floral base in most common potions and cures as its quick regenerating properties help ward of basic poisons, this was also discovered by one of the adventurers who made it out of the forest and became an alchemist
    .

    Some creatures from the mystic mountains sometimes make there homes near the forest edge by the mystic mountains. It would not be a good idea to use the moss as a way to hide you scent from sharp toothed animals cause then you will have the plant eating ones after you.
    The most dangerous ones you have to look out for are: Scours, Horned Bears, Deep wood Shadow beasts, and Blue back Tubblas. Once again never go anywhere without your soap cause it can repel the bears and the shadow beasts but the scours and tubblases are a little different.

    The Blue Back Tubblas is a close relative to the perpetua gopher but with a few slight differences. 1) its front teeth are sharper and pointed. 2)it usually travels in a pair or as a family. 3) they live in hollow tree’s then in the ground. And last but not least, they feed on meat.
    Despite their very cute appearance and fraudulent smiling looking face these are very evil creatures with the cutest faces. Its been said that a few people would rather die from a Tubblas then from dying from stupidly eating Acid purple berries. At least then they could keep there dignity.
    It’s the importance of dignity when refering to Scours since they vile little creatures have very little dignity or know the meaning of such an idea in its mind. Never has there ever been an animal that uses any form of flatulence to scare prey into traps then squeezes the prey till they pass out then eat them whole. The Scours look much similar to a large rat but with a longer thicker tail to restrain there prey or knock them out.


    With those in mind it shouldn’t be hard to survive in here. There are a few towns on the outskirts and possible Qadian Outposts to the north near the mystic mountains which are good places to go if you carry some of the moss with you to trade. And when going to those places keep the business short and to the point, usually once a deal is done they will open up more to a stranger, its at that time you can look to see if there is any place of logging. The moss is like money in small outposts like that. Its too bad it costs an arm and a leg to try to get past all those predators. Its has also been mentioned of an ancient castle at the edge of the evergreen forest to the south of it, great place if your looking for inspirations for paintings.

    Castle Skull as called by many villages that have heard of it. Its been called castle skull by the great big skull that sits at it’s front and the draw bridge would be in its jaw. The entire castle is surrounded by a death drop abyss that would reach into subternia. It is said that the castle is haunted by its previous owners and on one or two separate occasions people have seen a white ghost pass by a window. Some skeptics think that it was an illusion of the eyes that they saw and not a ghost but rather large bird that could have flown into the window and moved some old drapes that would still be in this castle.

    The origins of the castle remain that a mystery, In Fiklin Gerrin’s book “Places I’d Like To Visit But Don’t Have The Time To” that the entire castle was in fact coughed in this world from another dimension which made the abyss. Another theory is that the entire place was built back in ancient eternian history by a undead person with a skull head made the castle in his own image. Many thought this theory was ridiculous no such man could ever live with a skull for a head without muscles and flesh, those comments however were taken back after the town of well respected alchemist who mocked the theory was attacked by a man named Skeletor.

    Chapter 4:

    What can be said about the Icy mountains that the name can’t really tell you. Its cold, mountainous, and cold? Why anyone would live here, despite warnings of the large temperature drop people still venture here in search of mystery or adventure. The mountains here do contain eternium which is one of the rarest metals in all of eternia. unfortunately at that temperature not many mining tools can last out there.

    Eternium is a grand metal that can be used to make very, very fine weapons and or armor, or it can be used as a power source with the right output. Eternium was discovered when Galix the large noticed a rock creature was in the middle of eating random stones and rocks to feed it self when it came to a light blue stone, bit it and then ran off crying to its hole holding its mouth. As odd as is its discovery it is odd that such a small stone can be used for at least centuries to power and entire city. In fact its known that the great city of eternos is infact powered by one of these stones.
    It would the first stone to be used as a power source but last one to be used as a weapon when a blacksmith came across some eternium and made a sword, he then made a sword which would later been enchanted by the council of wisdom and dubbed the Sword of the Ancients. But much like where had the elders went, no one knows where the Sword of the Ancients ly.
    Eternium makes good armor but only for showcase not actual combat this was later discovered when a brave soul named Haploon Swift-tail found a small vein of Eternium and had some armor made, while supplying a warlord’s solders during the great unrest he noticed how much his eternium armor didn’t stand up to a blow from a mace.

    If you are going to be traveling in the Icy mountains best to bring some subternian surprise it will keep you warm provided you wear a thin layer of clothing so not to over heat yourself. It has also been known that the Kulataks who have been recently discovered, are friendly if you are just wandering around, they do like to help travelers along there way, its also good to make use of there information of the land from them as they do know the best ways around these mountains.

    The Kulatak though just recently discovered are a marvel in the harsh climates of the Icy mountains, though they may look like a white shadow beast they are very friendly to those that they can trust. It is also a recently known fact that they like to trade various furs that they shave from there beasts that they raise for some of the Deep Forest Moss from the evergreen forest as well as ChoaChoa Sprouts that makes a eternian delectable Choacolate.
    These big creatures also have a large amount of Eternium in there main city of Stilla. If one where to go to Stilla you would notice the large buildings there made of ice and eternium. Most of their culture is old and rely on a farming like community.
    Most people are put off by the fact that a group of intelligent ice dwelling creatures could be so friendly. In fact it has been known from time to time that people reject any kind offer from the Kulatak and end up freezing to death in the cold air. One kulatak had this to say after getting turned down after offering help to a traveler. “I sure hope he knows he is heading near the ice shadow beasts den... nope.”


    These mountains are very high and very cold. With out a kulatak guide to show you around a person can be lost or taken out by the Ice shadow beasts that live up here.

    Cold, very cold, you can’t believe how incredibly cold it is up there. It is actually proven with out help or someone to guide you a normal traveler’s odds of surviving is two thousand, six hundred, thirty-seven to one which by the same coincidence that those four numbers happen to be the very coordinates of a ship that crash landed in the Fertile Plains which brought out a very surprised looking woman who is now queen of Eternos.
    Not only is it cold in the Icy mountains it is also tall, rugged and also very dangerous. Its so rugged here that a group of horned red-tailed Lemmings make there home in these mountains and jump off the cliffs when there population gets to large. But although it does seem dangerous it has many fine points such as the glacial lights that will glow at night, As well as an old story from a Kulatak elder says that in ancient times there race used to be friends with a wise and powerful dragon who lived in a dragon city. Balling Coord of the Eternos society after hearing some of these stories said that it would be impossible for a lizard to be that smart to use magic and talk. It was later disproven when one of his students pointed out about Caligars are lizard decedents. Balling kick this student out of his class saying “one thing I can’t stand is a smart ass.”


    One you get through the cold glacial winds, the icy mountains can be a great place to visit. Just for safety when going through there be sure to keep your scarf on at all times. The only dangerous creatures to worry about are the Ice Shadow Beasts and the Wooly Hawks. Now that you have and understanding of the Icy Mountains its time to head to the next area and warm up some of this frost bite.

    Wooly Hawks arn’t horrible bird, just reclusive, short tempered, callous, and self absorbed. These birds may look warming to the heart but they can be mean very fast if they realize you have food or look weak enough to be food. The average wing span of these birds is at least the length of a kulataks arm, which is probably why humans and other races look like a nice dinner for them.
    The wool on this hawk is much like a silken fiber as it is so fine, if one of these birds were to be captured its body hair would actually go for quite a bit of money. Not to mention some new material to quickly stuff ones pillow again. But capturing these birds and bringing them to warmer climates can be fatal for them. So the bad side you capture a dangerous bird who will die in warmer climates and possibly try to kill you when you let it out, but on the bright side you got expensive material that could be used for making well made fur coats, cloaks, and any other fashion accessory that would keep a person warm.
    Passing for number 3 on the strange creatures list this bird in a cold climate has a very odd way of feeding there young. The mother would eat the victim or creature that it has selected and fly back to the nest where it would feed the chicks by breast feeding which the nipples are located just between the knees. This lead many people to believe that this bird would be considered of the mammal type class as it would use milk to feed its young, but many others still believe that if it lays an egg it would be a bird. It was Sandril Nathan of Veridas who pointed out that if laying eggs was a bird would that make the Square nosed speckle gator a bird as well, he went on to explain his idea in a poem when luckily his home was destroyed by a raid from Skeletors air centurions.

    Chapter 5:

    The eternia encyclopedia for travelers says this on the chances of exploring the Darkwoods without getting mauled by some sort of plant or animal.

    Trying to pass through the darkwoods unscathed a person would have a better chance taking a green valley apple away from a rather hungry shadowbeast while balancing on a thin rope hanging over a volcano, roughly speaking, though the attempt itself was successfully done when Ullass Kinlor managed to grab the apple from a shadowbeast while on a thin rope going across a magma river infront of a crowd of well to do rich folks who had nothing better to do with there money but watch a man throw his life away for their own amusement, he later died when a bag of money he earned from a later show tipped his wagon which he kept all his money in fell on him and crushed him.

    Despite the fact of the danger of the forest there a some small groups of nomads that make camp outside the forest cause near the edge there are some roots that grow under neath a spiked whipping oak where the roots themselves are a favored spice to put in just about any eternian meal. Gives all the meals a good kick, but for those who take the time risk themselves for money and a good whipping its best to go in a group. Bring your scarf cause even though the tree has one whipping branch its best to subdue it without destroying it.

    The spiked whipping oak of the darkwood forest has some of the best of the best products coming from something that looks like it was regurgitated from the belly of a dragon, wrapped in the stem of a very thorny rose. But it’s the wonderous thing about these tree’s that even though they have a live and violent nature that one would expect something like this that a hard attitude would have hard wood but really once you get past the mean exterior you will find soft wood and a whole lot of whipping marks on ones body.

    If traveling through these woods its best to keep an eye out for a few creatures out of a bunch of dangerous ones. These three are very dangerous cause a single bite can be fatal almost instantly. The Giant Termite Beatle, The Corrosive tongued frog and the Power leech. All these creatures stated have a history of the most fatalities in the forest, besides starving to death in a dark forest you would be best to keep your soap with you at all times.

    It was Sir Gathor a musical knight who traveled with a caravan ended up getting lost in the forest. He said. “Your best to avoid that place, you are more likely to get eaten, squashed, cut, raped, bruised, beaten, raped again, and finally stuffed into a small knot of a tree by a very grumpy looking horned squirrel.” it was later on he stayed in his house for many years, cause he mentioned seeing a very upset rodent in his tree outside his home.

    The power leech may not look like anything that you have come to know about leeches in a conventional sence, but they are hardly conventional. They are the only leeches that are by pedal but are only 1 foot tall. Yet they travel in a large group sticking to any small body of water to keep moist. It is also important to mention that studies have shown that these little life suckers were not always this size, eternian scientists have shown many millennia ago these leeches were at least 7 feet tall and a single one could feed off of two people at the same time. When coming across these leeches or any part of the forest you notice to have lots of small ponds best to rub soap on your legs to keep the leeches away.

    The Giant Termite though its name does sound large and scary only refers to a large form to a regular termite. Though they do not feed on flesh as one can sigh in relief, but the danger that these little pest do that cause so much death to a person is the fact they deliberately drop a full tree on a person. This was proven how evil these little devils are when a specimen in a eternian laboratory ate one of the examiners pencil. “It was my favorite pencil, the little bugger is evil.” and shown just how evil these things are. If one were to hear the sound of wood cracking somewhere around them best thing to do to stop the termites from continuing to try to end ones life is to whistle. Despite the idea they don’t have ears it would seem it irritates them to no end.

    While whistling and rubbing soap on your legs will save your life in the long run from the beasties that do some damage, its also best to occupy your mind often if you don’t want to go mad and swallow you tongue or have something swallow it for you..... but we digress. The Dark forest while dangerous is a great place to visit for the adventurous people who life to live life by the edge. For those of us who like a clean pair of under clothing we suggest staying away from there.
