Shadow of the Ivory Citadel - Chapter I
CHAPTER I: At the Gates of Yol'gan Ayas'yasti Xyrrai'zestu Sharen rode through the streets of the underground city of Yol'gan upon her dragon, accompanied by a tattooed, dark haired male behind her. The sight of the foreign nobility drew out onlookers, surprised to see a dragon walking through the streets of their own city. Ayas'yasti herself possessed a tall, shapely frame which caught the eyes of male and female alike. Her long wavy grey hair contrasted with her lambent almond shaped red eyes. To complete her regal appearance, she wore the fine attire of a Sharen noblewoman,  her gown and cloak composed of brocaded silks and elab

In Love's Eyes A Queen - Epilogue
Blood flowed from Tur'geis' wounds as he stood there cradling the body of the only woman he loved. Her blood covered them both, so much that Tur'geis couldn't tell whose blood covered him anymore. The male warrior was mad from the pain, both physical and emotional. He had failed her, and their entire line. Tur'geis shook with sadness and rage as he gasped for air. He couldn't breathe... Tur'geis bolted up, screaming madly as he frenziedly grasped for his sword. He'd die avenging his fallen mate! Suddenly he felt strong hands grasp his wrists. He snarled and twisted his arms away, seeking to throw his opponent off of him. “No!” he

“Heh, you weren't really angry, were you?” purred Die'tra as she ran her fingers across Tur'geis' broad chest.  Her long white hair, some of it pulled into red braids, covered the two like a blanket and her feline green eyes met Tur'geis' ice blue ones once more as they spoke. The tall, powerfully built male beside her chuckled, his right arm draped around her as they lay on the grass, the mist sea before them. “It doesn't matter now,” he said as he gave one of Die'tra's full buttocks a squeeze. His low, broad face spread into a wide grin as his blue eyes displayed deep mirth. “If it ends up like this, how could

A Tale From The Deep Woods, Chapter VI
CHAPTER VI: Krui'adh groused to himself as he sat down in the field beside his sister, Rox'elana. His mother had given him the duty to watch over Rox'elana and the Am'saag detachment's sheep, horse, and cattle herds with several other Am'saag tribesmen. Rox'elana cooed and smiled happily at her older brother, playing with a stuffed whale she had brought from home. Krui'adh managed a smile as he saw his little sister. He'd rather be out hunting, but he was mature enough to know the importance of protecting his sister. With that in mind, the boy looked down to check his composite recurve bow; a simple thing, but Krui'adh was proud of how his

Chapter V: “Kacara'jana is on the eastern bank, keep your eyes open,” advised Loma'khadva. The sun was falling in the sky as the four.traveled down the river to Kacara'jana on the stolen canoe. “I remember the Explorers wanted a stockade built on the river to ward off Black Sun attacks,” said Vana'sadra, watching the foliage to the sides in case of a Black Sun ambush. If that stockade had ever been built, then they'd all find it easier to inform the colony's defenders. “Aye, but you Nal'sarkoth are led by soft-bellied merchants who can't see any further than next month's balance sheet.

Chapter IV: “How many Black Sun are there, anyways?” queried Vana'sadra as the four made their way through the  western path. They were all careful to avoid low-hanging branches and to step on the hard packed dirt of the trail as to leave no trace; but for the two Nal'sarkoth it was slower work. “The woods were swarming with them! At least a dozen tribes,” replied Loma'khadva, her long white hair trailing behind her as she ran. “They'll obey a great warrior, but they'll follow a sorceress into Hell, whether it be out of respect or fear,” continued Die'tra. “There has to be more clans that you

Chapter III: The Black Sun camp bustled with activity as workers and slaves did their daily tasks. A wooden stockade surrounded the huts made of mud and wattle as warriors squatted within and tended their bleeding wounds from the past battle, all the while keeping their bone weapons close to hand. Die'tra' keen eyes searched the open stockade from the slight vantage point provided to her by a cluster of trees. A variety of severed heads, both goblin and elf, were stuck upon the shafts of spears ringing the center of the camp. It was looking grim for the well-being of the captured trader so far. Normally the Black Sun tried to take hostages

Behind the Scenes, Part II (Tur'geis)
Hey, grab yourself a drink and sit down for part two. Don't worry if you missed part one, it's here and we'll wait until you're finished reading. Done? Good... Most of you may not know this but the very first prototype for Tur'geis originated back in 2006-7 with Relic Hunters 1.0. Yes, you heard me right. Unfortunately, being a poor university freshman/sophomore back then I couldn't afford the $20 per month to join up so this “prototype Tur'geis” never existed outside of my mind. And boy was Tur'geis different back then. He still was a young smartass who enjoyed fighting and adventure, but he was more of a hotshot mana specialis
