A chill that did not come from cold swept through Lorna. This was it. She was in debt to a Fae now. He had never been going to change it into straw. He had lied to her. It had all been one big farce. And the gold had been an excuse to let it happen. He had probably planted the gold in her field...
Lorna shivered despite her heavy coat, her breath misting in the air before her as she left the empty loft and re-entered the barn. She was met by the sight of eight emaciated cows and ten stalls. “Going to have to put you all down at this rate.” She muttered, rubbing her hands together in an...
Ayunah returned from her trip to the city to see the young elf that she and Jeyrhos had picked up recently was once again sitting cross-legged on the ground in front of Jeyrhos, picking grass moodily. Jeyrhos stood in front of him, arms folded across his breastplate with a thunderous expression...

Nida laid on the floor staring at her dinner plate. All that was left on it was a pair of dwarf steaks that had grown cold over the past hour. "Mom! Do I have to eat it?" Her mother sighed from where she was sitting across the room to make sure that Nida ate her food. "For the hundredth time...

"Mama! Mama! Can I go look for shells now?" Tirene asked, bouncing up and down with her small metal pail banging against her legs. Her mother smiled as she sewed and said: "Did you finish all your chores?" "Yes! I did!" Tirene exclaimed. "I cleaned my room, I scrubbed the table and I hid all of...
There was not a single living soul in the entire town. The buildings were all derelict and empty. Dead ivy crawled up the walls and snow-covered weeds choked the gardens. Lit by moonlight, the whole place felt eerie and unreal. “Why would the Counsel bother sending a Sivlan knight to this ghost...
None of the Priests were willing to touch the body for fear that the curse would transfer to them as well. Kazak thought this to be utter ridiculousness. The Warrior Goddess was more likely to kill her victims herself than to send a curse their way. Kazak snarled in angry disbelief and glanced...
Kazak’vur glared at the human priest who glared back saying “You are the Dragonkin Champion of Glalik, sworn to obey the King who sent you to protect the Glalikan Priests and you are telling me that you don’t take your job seriously?” “Bah!” Kazak’vur scoffed in derision and growled. “I take my...
Lisa studied the Pillars, the Pillar of Plants looked far more normal than the rest and appealed to her but she found herself pointing to the Pillar of Bones instead. “That one,” Lisa said, she thought she saw the Pillar of Bodies moving out of the corner of her eye. But when she looked straight...
Lisa left the village, humming to herself, and hurried to meet her three friends at the gate of the Garden of Shadows, occasionally twirling or skipping to the side. Everyone said that they should never go to the Garden because it was so dangerous. It had been Via's idea to go and Lisa hadn’t...
After Kalishan was seated and it was clear that he was uncomfortable, much to Thornstaffs enjoyment. Ryjah used what shape-shifting ability she had, to become a bird and they set off. The journey took several hours but they made it without incident, and there was indeed an old white temple in...
Ryjah followed her mentor, Thornstaff, down the path. They were hunting the Bandits of the Cult of the Blackest Night and it was rumored that the band was currently attacking the travelers in this area. As soon as Thornstaff nocked an arrow to his bow, Ryjah knew that they had found them and...
