18 years previous 1307 AE   Kelsandra itched for her father and brother to return home; the winter especially harsh this year, they’d been staying out later and later on their fishing trips, and she spent most of her days bundled up on her bed reading the same book and trying not to think of her growling stomach. She heard the familiar thumping of her...

Next>> Part 1: Late Nights Annon was slumped over her desk in the dark corner of her small workspace. Papers, gadgets and other things lay spread across the tent in a chaos of organized piles, leaving even less to move in the already cramped space. A dim crystal hovers off to the side, providing the only source of light, save some moonlight coming in from...

Kelsandra was within the hills again, darting back and forth to avoid one of the centaur’s arrows. She felt like a fool. He wasn’t giving her a single second to try a shot. She grabbed the pistol from her belt and faced him, pointing it at his face. Finally, the centaur, bow empty, paused for a short moment. Behind her, Sterjin yelped. Her breath caught in her...

Knock those arrows, Loose those stowed. Shoot so fast it seems time’s slowed. Smashing “2” Like a fool Can’t beat this in a PEW PEW duel. Castle walls, high and thick Protect me from all but the magnet trick; Too bad I drop fast as glass that’s cooled too fast.

Kelly stared at him in awe. Invading a massive centaur camp would get her everything they needed? Valgar stood there, looking at her, unmoving, as if he already knew her answer. “The humans didn’t come back for you,” she said. “Someone would have. You did.” At her incredulous look, he shifted and continued, “No, I see what you mean. It’s your choice. Out here,...

Sterjin’s sleep was very short, but in that time, Kelsandra found herself feeling very fortunate that they had kept to the forest. Reading the map, she realized that they were either within or very near the Halacon Cataracts, uncomfortably close to several centaur camps and settlements. When Sterj awoke, Kelly felt safe falling asleep herself, as there hadn’t...

She didn’t have a plan; of course she didn’t. It felt like she was running from home, even though everyone who cared to know knew that she was leaving by the morning. Still, it had the same feeling as most would have running from home. Chasing something that seemed absurd and yet feeling freer and more scared with every step. Perhaps it was better this way,...

When I was a young lady in the last stronghold of humanity I was told that the city walls would always protect us, as they had for all of human memory, Yet, I found that safety was no way to live when, one night, I saw a great beast in a circus tent. Though he was well fed and loved, I heard him cry out for more than contentment. From his youth forward, he...

1325 AE, Township of Claypool   Kelsandra leaned forward from her sitting position in one last hopeful attempt. She snatched up the book she’d almost finished and slipped through it to the end. Then she swore and lay down on her small bed, placing the book on her stomach. On her first and last visit to Divinity’s Reach, an asura managing a book cart had...
