Good morning Traveler, I trust your flight from Ghea was comfortable, welcome aboard the Ark Royal. I think we saw each other down on the surface of Ghea, when my Officers and I met with Arjun and Alexander, but I don’t believe we’ve been introduced. I am Admiral Sophia Chamberlain, Commanding Officer of this ship and her fleet. Is there something wrong Traveler? ‘I look young for my rank?’ No need to apologize, I hear that all the time. There’s something of a story behind that, but we’ll come to that later. I suppose the best place to start would be with where we come from and why we’re here. My fleet and

Arjun wiped at his brow, the fierce summer sun overhead had been sending trickles of sweat down his face and back, threatening to paste his robes to his torso. Ordinarily, he’d have conjured a soft breeze or maybe a summer shower by now but he decided against it. He’d already spotted his destination. It was a pastoral, sunlit little spot in the expansive grasslands of the Western Continent, dotted with patches wild flowers that swayed gently in the wind while Dragonflies and Bees took to the air on gossamer wings. There was nothing outwardly extraordinary about the spot, save for its simple beauty, but there was something extraordin

Hey there Traveler, I've seen you around but I haven't had a chance to meet you. Please, sit down. That battle really tired me out. My name is Gatspy, I've heard a lot about you from my Master, Arjun. He told me about how you fought at Veles Vasad, and how you fought here on Detulia. What else can I say Traveler? I'm glad you're on our side. Oh, you heard about me? Yeah, I'm one of Master Arjun's Students. I lived in Hyksos, on Ghea's Southern Continent, before Master Arjun discovered me. I was really little, so I don't remember much about my time there. Most future Guardians are brought into the Order when they're that young, if their famil

Good morning, traveler, I've heard a great deal about you from Macmael, Shotglass and Arjun. I've also heard that you drank Shotglass' entire selection without passing out. I know, from experience, that he serves potent brew in his establishment so I'm impressed. As for myself, my name is Alexander and I am the leader of the Nine Warriors. I'd heard from Arjun that you were eager to meet me. And, you can imagine my surprise when he told me that you'd fought alongside us during our battle at Veles Vasad. Where are we, you ask? Well, that's an interesting question and, to be honest, I don't have the whole answer. We have traveled through the P

Order dies, Hope survives
Hello young traveler, I've heard much about you from Governor Macmael and Shotglass. I am Arjun, leader of the Order of Guardians. Well, what's left of the Order anyway. I would imagine that, by now, you're only too aware of the Order's destruction. Even now, it seems unreal, impossible. And yet, it happened anyway. I suppose the best place to begin would be with the founding of the Order. The Order was established by the Avatars, a race of incredible beings who travel the stars as easily as you or I would walk upon a road. Back then the Five Races, Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Beastmen and Imps, were little more than desperate tribes of scavenge

Welcome good master, you must be the traveler that has been our Governor Macmael's guest. I trust you're enjoying your stay? As for myself, I am Shotglass and I run 'Old Shotglass' Tavern.' What's that good master? "Why call it 'Old Shotglass' Tavern' when the building is practically new and I'm younger than most of my customers?" Come now good master, use some common sense. Do you think the paying public would trust a sign that says 'Young Shotglass' Tavern?' I didn't think so. But, you're not here to listen to my bad jokes. You're here for information. And, you came to the right place. People tell their bartenders everything, especially if

A World in Peril, Heroes rise
I am old. I've lived a long, long time. I've seen many things and known many people. I've known joy and pain, I've seen the face of peace and war alike. I did not expect anything to surprise me again, and yet a few days ago, I had the biggest surprise of my life. Where shall I begin? I guess the beginning would be a good place. First, let me introduce myself. My name is Macmael. I've been Governor of the City of Nubal, the Trade City of Ghea's Western Continent, for nearly thirty years. I cannot say my tenure has been a happy one. I often think back on that time, long ago, when the troubles began. Even now, twenty dark years after the fact,

Second Time's the Charm
 Second Time's the Charm "Here comes the Pegasus!" Knight Captain Frederick of the Halidom of Ylisse said with a smile as he playfully held up a spoonful of oatmeal to his small son's mouth. "Or perhaps it's actually a tough wyvern!" The one year old chocolate brown-haired boy giggled in his high chair, fidgeting with his little bowl as he allowed his father to put the spoon in his mouth. Morgan didn't quite take all of what was on the spoon, though that was expected. However, Frederick was glad he ate any of it at all. A teal haired woman sporting a curled ponytail and a light dress the color of a plum watched with a loving smile

Game Plan for my Side Stories.
Okay, here we go. The following outlines my plan for Side Stories corresponding to Legends of Ghea Book 1: The Great War. (S) means Submitted, (P) means Pending. Side Story 1 ‘A World in Peril, Heroes rise’ (S): A monologue by Macmael, Governor of Nubal and surrogate father to the main character Alexander, which describes Ghea's recent history. It tells of the downfall of Ghea's cities to the Dominion and of the Liberation of the Western Continent which takes place about one fifth of the way through the book. Side Story 2 ‘A sword in one hand, ale in the other’ (S): A bit of banter with Shotglass, a bartender and veteran

Hey Falchion, sorry to bug you again, but when you got time, I finished another new pic a couple days ago of Judo and Kelli on the floor kissing while they were doing some hand-to-hand combat training...lol I think you'd find it cute! Oh, and we get a glimpse of Judo's deputy commander and buddy Conan in the corner catching them and having a funny reaction. XD I waited a while to tell you since you said you had your hands full.

I saw them. Meant to review at least one today, but got sidetracked. Sorry. I'll try again tomorrow. Thanks for your patience.

Hey Falchion, I posted that dual picture I mentioned wanting to do of Kelli in a swimsuit on a beach and Judo after he just went a few rounds at the punching bag! I think you'll find it neat. :D
