Mabel, Chapter 2: Increased Traffic to Hoelbrak

Feb 6, 2017

Rytlock wasn’t in. He hadn’t been in for months, they said. Mabel didn’t understand. They had been walking in circles for a long time, and yet they were in a completely different place. And now her owner was shouting. “Yes, I know he’s a very important man, but if his mission is so important, then why doesn’t the public know about it?” Rovack was waving his...

Mabel, Chapter 1: Lionguard are Only Slightly Useful

Dec 21, 2016

Mabel did not like this trade-off she experienced with the shifting of holidays. Though she was not aware of it, Halloween was the event that brought Tyrians from all walks of life to Lion’s Arch. The children chased her around the square during this time; hugged her tightly around the belly if they ever caught her. Most of the year, there was the meek smile...

The Dream isn’t Real. The Wyld Hunt is a Lie.

The Dream isn’t Real. The Wyld Hunt is a Lie.

May 14, 2016

It is now quite clear what I suspected about the sylvari to be true, with gathered knowledge from the jungle dragon and its minions, their whole point of being is a lie. Sylvari first appeared on Tyria in 1302 AE; there were only 12 at first, called the Firstborn by the second batch to emerge from the Pale Tree, thus named the Secondborn. The Tree itself was...

An Asura Family Wintersday

An Asura Family Wintersday

Dec 25, 2015

It was lightly snowing at the Asura News Network labs, just a few stone shaped buildings spread throughout a small valley in the Brisband Wildlands. Most of the krewe have left to enjoy Wintersday with their families and friends. Only one building is still lit, with a smokestack lifting into the dusk. An asura girl is sitting in front of a fireplace, lightly...

Kelsandra, Chapter 15

Dec 19, 2015

The next morning, Kelsandra and Valgar ate breakfast at a table by the inn’s front door. Belszarus, the seasoned, slightly older charr and newest addition to their team, walked in. She looked around and, when she spotted them, mumbled, “Good morning,” and took a seat a few tables away. “We’re getting there today, aren’t we?” Kelly asked Valgar. Belszy had taken...

The Chak: What are they and are they related to the Karka?

The Chak: What are they and are they related to the Karka?

Nov 10, 2015

As a zoologist I, Meltak – Head of the ANN krewe, have performed observations on various species throughout Tyria, including the karka. Now, I set my sights on a new, equally petrifying creature. The chak are a crab like species located deep in the Maguuma jungle, with several variations in characteristics and combat capabilities. Some have feelers and a...

“I’m Belszarus.” The adult charr held out her paw, which was grey-white like the rest of her, but larger in proportion. Or was that standard for charrs? Kelly didn’t know. Kelsandra clasped her paw and winced, hoping that she wouldn’t crush her hand. Belszy quickly picked up on it and gently shook it, almost limply. “This is—Kelly,” Valgar said uncertainly....

Kelsandra thought she saw a figure move in the dark window of the otherwise well-lit Almuten Mansion and her gaze at the pane lingered for half a moment too long— The Spider Queen shot webs at Kelly’s torso and wrapped her up in the sticky ropes. Her legs were free of the web; she tried to move those, but they were immobiled as well. “Pay attention, Kel!”...

A Look into Tyria: Rata Pten

Aug 26, 2015

Northwest of Mt. Maelstrom, lies the ancient asura city of Rata Pten, built into the walls of Criterion Canyon. Little remains, only the husk of what was once a bustling city is left standing. Now, there are only spiders and remnants of the asura that once lived here. The Durmand Priory are currently excavating the ruins for relics they believe may be used...

<<Prev|First|Next>> Chapter 2: Missing Part 2: The Search Marx and Arista were able to backtrack to the Zephyrites before dusk, as they were not slowed by Annon and her golem, though the sun was already starting to set. The merchants looked weary, with all they’ve been through over the last couple years, who wouldn’t be. First it was the...

Kelly happily bounded beside Valgar for a full mile before either of them said a word. She was hoping it’d be Valgar, but was content to share some of her own life with him. “I once had a friend who wouldn’t stop talking about the Gendarran Fields.” “I’m guessing she did not live there,” he said flatly. “I didn’t even say whether she liked it!” “Uneducated...

“Why are you such a coxcomb?” Kelsandra asked as she and Sterjin followed Valgar. The sounds of the victory faded behind them, and she realized that they had not stopped for a reward, if there was one. “Coxcomb? My grandmother is the only one I know of who used that word,” Valgar said casually. “Do you know what it means?” She ran and kept up with him, forcing...

<<Prev|First|Next>> Chapter 2: Missing Part 1: Making Plans I’m turning sections with certain themes into chapters. The first was Overworked, this is Missing and the next… I don’t know myself yet. It’s still continuing to evolve and I’m going to expand the base from here, so while the story is about Annon it will also...

Jul 15, 2015

You’ll always revive me. I know you’ll always be there to revive me, just in time. Those words rang in Kelsandra’s head as she watched the crowds come together like in a painting of a great war, right when the first battle begins. Most of the Norn had blunt swords, only able to hack off the weakened limbs of the undead, and Kelly finished them off once she was...

Jul 1, 2015

Kelsandra and Sterjin weren’t allowed to stay inside or near the cottage while the family filled Valgar in on the recent kidnapping. Having bought decent arrows for her new bow, Kelly had nothing left to do. She stayed sitting near the harbor, not out of sight but out of the way, enjoying the familiar fish smell. The sun was low in the sky when Valgar finally...

<<Prev|First|Next>> Part 4: Misdirection (I decided to mix this chapter up a bit and provide the view of events taking place from other characters. I may do this on and off. Also, no pictures this time, I’m too lazy and just writing is easier.) Two charr worked their way up the inclination where Annon was camped. The first, a slender female...

The next morning, as soon as Kelsandra saw her brother, she ran forward and embraced him. “I wish we could take you closer to where you need to be,” Gavin said, looking at Valgar from over her shoulder. “But we have some repairs on the ship to take care of before traveling.” Valgar narrowed his eyes at him. The siblings broke away from each other. “That’s...

After a pause, Kelly pulled down the red cloth under her chin and called back to Valgar, “He’s my brother.” Valgar collapsed on the ground as well, and the trio lay on the sandy grass, breathing heavily. Gavin stared down at them, dumbfounded, as the woman relaxed her sword arm and laughed. Kelsandra then sat up. “I don’t know how much you’ve changed,” she...

Special Note: Annon is pronounced /an on/, the name was to be similar to anonymous, as I needed a fictional editor/writer for my articles. Didn’t think about mentioning it until I heard Cithryth on the podcast. I’m calling you out girl, saying my character’s name wrong, I thought we were pals. Anyways, story time. << Prev|Next>>...
