Five past Nine
Ten past nine. Death was running late. Again. Richard stood from the couch with a sigh. Methodically he turned on the lights and then the TV. The same shitty news as the day before began spilling from the box and, ignoring it, Richard moved to the kitchen. He set a pot to boil water. The Earl Grey was always good for waiting. Twenty past nine and Richard came back to his living room, teapot in one hand, a plate with two cups in the other. The TV was turned off and a man sat on the couch. "I hope you don't mind, I have seen it all." The man said pointing toward the TV. "You're late." Richard said ignoring the man's comment as he placed the

Memories of Thassilon, part 2
Natalia walked for hours through the dark streets and alleys of Korvosa, unaware of where she was heading. She just knew that she needed to stay away from the workshop and the Box. Before Natalia realized it, her feet had carried her to the doors of the Academae. Constructed like a castle, the imposing and impregnable thirty foot tall walls concealed not just the building and the students, but a different world from hers.

"Whatever brings you here, I'm not interested." Natalia spoke without stopping or turning around, her delicate fingers still carefully working on a mechanical music player. Judging from how the wood squeaked with each step, she knew that the man behind her was unarmored. She placed one of her tools on the workbench and discretely picked up her butterfly dagger. That doesn't mean he is unarmed, Natalia thought. "You haven't even heard what I have come to say," said the man in a clear baritone. He was not Korvosan, his accent was more refined than that. Chelexian, perhaps? And he's a nobleman, Natalia cursed twice under her breath. "If it's

"Stop speaking nonsense Vrae," spits Anna, the old woman sitting with me in the back of the coach. "What will our guest think of us after such heresy?" The woman's tone make it sound more as an apology to me than a reprimand at her husband, but her eyes and thoughts are elsewhere. She watches every shadow outside the coach nervously. I had been lucky to find them this late at night. These days few travelers use this path anymore; it had just become too dange

Road to Jordan (full cycle)
It looks better here:Pathfinder Chronicler Well a few months ago I talked of how Jordan Fenix came to be, i won't repeat it, but if someone is interested it can be found here: https://montalve.deviantart.com/journal/26801687/ Right now I am more interested in showing her artistical evolution. Besides my stories, which began just as a way to create a background for her, she is a lot more deep than I have been able to show but I hope I can do it in the future, I have been working with her for almost 2 year and shehas become one of my favorite characters so far... *cof cof* I suppose it shows in my gallery :P My stories: Decisions of Faith 0
