Julie and the Cursed Ruins: PrologueThe legends of superstitious tribal peoples can usually be dismissed as just that—mere superstition. But sometimes, there’s a reason these superstitions exist, and it is best not to push your luck.Julie and the Cursed Ruins: Prologue15 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
The island where our story takes place is like no other. Well, all islands are unique in their own way, but that’s not the point. If there’s one place where weird stuff right out of a 1940s pulp fiction or even a high-brow Tarzan novel can take place is here. No one knows where it is, and no one really knows it exists, save for the people who live here and only a small few outsiders. Eventually, the outside world will know of this place.
But not right now.
The island sits somewhere in the Pacific, protected by some kind of shield that renders it invisible to the outside world; neither satellites, nor aerial photos can detect it. In short, the only way to find it is to either find it or stumble across it. That’s it. It’s literally a lost island in the middl

Something was wrong. Hellstrom’s eye snapped open as he straightened in the chair by the main door where he had fallen asleep. The sky outside the the large bay windows was still dark, the clouds above lacking even the slight tint of false dawn, and yet they seemed much darker than they should have been.
He narrowed his eye and slowly reached out to grab the hidden handle of his coffin. It had only been a brief moment, but for a second he had seen something move past the windows. He waited with all the patience of scorpion biding its time for its prey to arrive, and then he felt it again.
Had it been any lesser man in his position, they would not have noticed. As it was, only the fact that Hellstrom was expecting it and had experienced it before allowed him to notice as a soft wind brushed past his face, tenderly kissing his scars before slipping across the back of his neck. It blew gently through the room yet disturbed nothing, coming from nowhere and yet everywhere a

My life started off pretty well I reckon. From what I was told, I was born at mid-day on a clear day, not too warm or not too cold for the desert- perfect sounding (Pfft, of course it was a perfect day…I had just been born, I make any day perfect.) I was born in my mother’s den, in the den were just three lions; Mother (obviously), Shiva- the pride’s shamaness and my mother’s best friend; Shula. I was a very small cub at birth, but that’s Mother’s fault. There were only 3 important lions that missed my birth; Zuberi (my brother), my grandfather and…my father. I never saw much of him in my early months though.
The first time I saw him, I had just been woken up by a bunch of shuffling sounds, a yell outside and then something loudly crashing into the den (disturbing Mother too). I remember lifting up my head and seeing a pair of green eyes staring down at me, the eyes narrowed and moved closer, I was nose to nose with this stranger. I f

Tony nodded solemnly. “Further in the report. My men found evidence of three others.” His expression was grim. He was no war general, just a soldier, but he knew what this meant. Murdering the queen was treason. Now that Elijah knew the truth, there was no way around that fact.

I find the exit rather easily, and with nobody guarding it as well. I am relieved to get a bit of fresh air, without the confinement of the mountain tunnels, and I begin to walk around. I do not know where I am going, but I am simply thinking of my situation. As I walk around, I come across a large patch of soft dirt with some small tree saplings growing from the ground. I look over it curiously and walk alongside it, finding a tree with a slightly large carved out hole in it, just above my head. I look up at it and I wonder if anyone lives there. I raise up on my back legs to take a quick peek of curiosity. Inside the hole I find some tree and flower seeds next to a book. The book is brightly colored and has a human child with a Skitty on the cover, watering flowers. I find that a bit interesting and wonder who's gardening, figuring it isn't a human. I drop down on all fours again and continue walking.
Then as I walk, I hear something big coming up behind me! There are no bushes to hi
[ XVIII ] Re - SedientoNo estaba pensando en nada... Sentí a Jade aun en la puerta, respirando, pero no me interesó. Me puse mi armadura, tomé mi morral y ni me molesté en mirar mis espadas y dagas. Vi la espada de Garranshik apoyada en la ventana, la enfundé y la colgué a mi espalda.

Me perdí por dos... ¿tres? Creo que fueron dos días, en los cuales no pude dormir bien, comí de manera desmedida y... casi no tomé nada, ni siquiera agua. Estaba tan sediento, tan iracundo cuando entré en la madrugada al Jabalí Sonriente, me acerqué al tablón de anuncios y busqué un trabajo, algo peligroso, algo donde peleara con alguien y vi el trozo de papel... Goblins que escaparon al tercer asalto, malditos pieles verdes cerca de mi alcance. Dirigí toda mi ira hacia ellos, tomé el trozo de papel y lo arrugué en mi mano.

Chapter Three: The Opportunists, or GreedI will tell you of my first experience with death. I was nine years old, perhaps ten; my paternal grandfather had just passed away. Though the case of death reported to the authorities was old age, I was to learn later that it was due to an over-familiarity with drink and lecher. Needless to say, the priest—having been newly transferred in from Meddelburg—was kept just as ignorant of this circumstance as was the civil magistrate.Chapter Three: The Opportunists, or Greed12 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
After the prescribed mourning period, Timond Sartonné’s body was taken to the chapel for funerary administrations. My family sat in the front pew, though from our position I could not see my grandfather’s body. The service proceeded in much formality, from the lighting of candles as witnesses to the guardians of the abode of the blessed that the departed had not perished in sin—poor guardians they would be indeed if mere candles could shuttle my scoundrel grandfather past their gaze without question!—to the haunting ben
Forevermore and Nevermore: Part 2“Ebony!” a commanding and sharp voice boomed loudly across the silent dry grassland. Standing among the long golden-brown grass was a muscular silver tabby whose pelt was riddled with scars, a sign of many battles in the past. Tail tip twitching in agitation, he surveyed the area while awaiting for the cat Ebony. Finally the tall grass parted and a small, apprentice sized black cat joined him.Forevermore and Nevermore: Part 213 hours ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
“You called,” the small cat looked nervously up at the much larger cat, who frowned angrily down at him. “What have I done to displease you, Boss?”
“You haven’t done a thing Ebony…” the silver tabby sighed, most likely having gained control of his raging emotions. Sitting down, his eyes took on a more mellower glow as he wrapped his tail neatly around his paws. “Some cats have decided to encroach on our territory is all.”
Ebony froze and his blue eyes, a brilliant and bright blue that resembled a sparkling, clear ocean, widen

“Urs! Urs!” the young filly was charging through the tunnels towards the Moonpool, shouting at the top of her voice for her friend. He was normally around the Moonpool this time of day, so she hadn’t even considered that he might not be - and she had something to show him.
Barrelling out into the moonlight cavern, she barely even glanced around before she saw his big bay figure.
“Urs! Urs, look! Talla helped me change my paint, look I’ve got stripes!” she squealed, spinning around for him to see. “Like a proper guard!”
She couldn’t contain her excitement, and just barely managed

Rain. If there was one thing that could be said of the Regen Forest, it would be that it was named perfectly in the native tongue of the bordering Königreiche der Menschen. Hidden deep within the forest was the small town of Schwarzburg. It’s namesake castle had fallen into disrepair as the border that the castle had been built upon had moved out past the forest that surrounded it as the centuries passed. The castle - a small walled keep with a solitary tower - was built atop a nearby mountain, though rumours were that the mountain itself was an ancient fortress, a remnant of the Age of Darkness and the great war that ended the era.
Hellstrom stepped out of the shadows of the forest near the sole road that lead to the out-of-the-way town and observed his surroundings. The dirt track that served as a road was smooth, lacking the wear that would signify travel. It did make sense, if someone was going to go to ground, then somewhere that everyone left well alone wo

The road was dark, the magelight lanterns set on poles by the side of the gravel path fluctuating slightly, their charges low from use, most rarely refilled. The road, mainly used during the daylight hours, stretched from the port city of Miribea to the West, towards the Federation border to the East. The road was well traveled, enough so that there was a small inn catering to travelers who dared not travel during the dark hours of night. Up above, the stars were shrouded by thick clouds heavy with rain, strange shadows flashing across their faces as lightning flickered between them.
The inn itself was a squat, dilapidated building, weathered from the storms that were common to the region. Lightning flickered through the air, briefly illuminating a figure slowly traveling along the road.The thunder crashed loudly overhead as the howling wind swirled around the figure.
The occupants of the inn winced at the loud noise and hunkered down over their drinks as the chill winds clam

Night had fallen quickly, the darkness and shadows swallowing up the corpses that littered the ground, filling the doorways and forests with hidden threats lurking at the edge of awareness. The emptiness of the village was haunting, even more so as the only sounds were those of nature, or the steady and quiet shriek of metal against stone.
“So, since you seemed to recognize those things, you mind tellin’ me what the hell they were? Or were you just pretending, to make yourself look good in your old age?” Viper asked as she looked up from running a whetstone over the blade of one of her chains. The somewhat unfriendly group of four had split upon finding the inn, Viper taking the high ground and scaling the walls to reach the rafters that crisscrossed the high ceiling of the large one floor building; the Baptiste siblings taking up positions next to the fireplace near the wall opposite the entrance; while Hellstrom disappeared behind the bar to raid the

Born and raised in the northern district, Cal was all too familiar with the glares and judgement that outsiders gave the likes of him, even more so when it’s the eyes of royalty. The princess Zana was the only outsider to ever look at Cal and smile without disapproving undertones - this single act caught the heart of Cal and since then has forged a bond with princess Zana, this bond was mutual too as Zana found Cal charming and funny - often finding amusement in Cal’s attempts to be formal - Zana always tells Cal to not push himself.
Cal felt at home at the northern district, while others avoid it in fear; the kingdom has classed the northern district as malfunctional and unsustainable but when in reality its the higher-ups who haven’t supported this district so people get desperate and crime rises, ro
