"Bottled Sun" -- 31 lines, $15 (can be prepaid, but only posts after "Crystal Wings" is fundedFREE
From the mead prompt came the free-verse poem "Bottled Sun," in which Shaeth and Trobby learn about the uses of flavored honey beverages.

"Crystal Wings" -- 127 lines, $63.50 SOLD
This inspired the free-verse poem "Crystal Wings." Glenta mistakes a bottle angel for a bottle demon, and tries to smash it. Bottle angels deal in the good things that can be done with fermented beverages, such as you mentioned.

"The Distillation of Senses" -- 107 lines, $53.50 SOLD
This prompt led to the free-verse poem "The Distillation of Senses."  Shaeth wonders what the artist and the minstrel are doing in his temple when neither of them are drunks.

"Jump Lines" -- 80 lines, $40 SOLD
From your prompt about Glenta meeting Eshne came the free-verse poem "Jump Lines." Eshne starts over as a chandler making candles for the God of Drunks, but it takes a while to figure out all the necessary tools and supplies.

"Outdated Directory" -- 108 lines, $54   SOLD
From a prompt by my_partner_doug I got the free-verse poem "Outdated Directory." A mage summons Shaeth, not realizing that he is no longer God of Evil.

"Winestains" -- (can be prepaid, but only posts after "The Distillation of Senses" is fundedSOLD
This prompt inspired the free-verse poem "Winestains." Denore is an artist whose mother was a drunk. Shaeth is learning that it's not just drunks themselves who need the temple, but also their family members.
