13. At Least One

ARC 2: Distrust (name pending changes!) Something stood in the shadows around Athia’s camp. It paced in silence around her circle, a dark from that never strayed close enough for her little campfire to catch. When she didn’t stir from her slumber, breaths slow and...

1/3. Incoming

Plan is for the second arc to begin this week. I'll be moving back to my old format, two posts a week instead of one larger one. Starting to get settled into my new job and get a routine going, so that's nice. With that hopefully resolved, I'll go and finish up some...

12/15 An Update

Thought I would take a minute to fill you in on what's going on right now! Right after I kickstarted the blog I wound up accepting a new job. Due to that, I've wound up with a larger workload and have been trying to adjust to a new schedule, in fact I'm on call right...

12. The Why

Carius’s enhanced perception gave him just enough time to slide his leg free of Veil’s strike. Veil’s blade dug into his horse’s shoulder and the beast fell. He flung himself free, his blade coming to life with blue light that trailed where it moved. It cut hairs from...

9. Discretely Noticeable

Figuring out an elaborate assassination attempt created by someone you didn’t know wasn’t easy. Athia stopped at two Lerian towns over the next two days to gather gossip and secure supplies. Some quick work made her enough money to replenish her rations for a time....

8. Competing Causes

When the forest shrunk to open grasslands, Carius met with a group of mercenaries in earthen toned cloaks and tabard greens. They toted large shields on their backs and crossbows slung over their shoulders. Each wore a light, laminated wood and leather breastplate and...

7. Clever Execution

The Master sat alone. Books lined the walls of his study while tattered flags of royalty sat beneath the seal of the Einarr, an ever-burning fire.   He shivered, eyes moving away from a long stack of paperwork. For every trouble a solution, for every solution two...

6. Fools and Danger

Carius and his soldiers rode hard and made good time in only a few days. They skirted the inside edge of Einarr lands to make better time. Carius doubted the Einarr could stop his knights and rangers and that fact tempted him to take a more direct route through the...
