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 cups on the table between them.
Death shrugged as he took the cup of steaming Earl Grey that Richard just poured him. "Urgent business. You know how it is. Sometimes I'm expected, sometimes I'm not."
Richard had known for the last ten years that he was supposed to die at 5 past 9. And for the last ten years Death had been late.
"Who was it?" Richard a

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.
Except for the Breaching Festival and cursing once in a while about the imps that plague the city, she had put little thought into wondering about this building or those who lived inside. She didn't have the kind of coin to pay such expensive tutelage, much less the magical aptitude to make use of it. Natalia worked mundane marvels and was damned proud of it.
But since she'd met Astrid, Natalia had become curious about magic and everything related to it. Astrid had even patiently tried to teach her, but Natalia was a slow learner of the mystical arts

Memories of Thassilon, part 1
"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 business that you bring, speak with Master Olin. He will establish terms that I can work with," the young engineer spoke with casual indifference. She was used to nobles trying to have their way. Not with her, she had very specific rules and made no exceptions.
"Ahh but Miss Crow," the man said with impatient amusement, "it

Rain
"It's as if the gods are crying," says the old coachman as his vehicle moves along the forested path. It certainly feels as if the sky is collapsing above us. Maybe the old man is right.
"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 dangerous with bandits, and worse.
"It's ok ma'am, it certainly seems like an awful night," I shrug with a smile, an awkward gesture with my drenched tunic, soaked after hours below the rain.
"Gods above, where I have left my manners tonight? Girl, priestess or not, you need to change clothes or you will catch a cold." Her words are kind, but they

Space Sorcery
Debts Always come First
Ernesto I. Ramirez

The red and black starfighter appeared suddenly from Nowhere, the subspace used by sorcerers for FTL travel. It was so fast that the Space Station's alarms and defenses had no time to go off. Without any inconvenience the small ship had stealthily made into the SSC Kuttner's perimeter, quickly disappearing among the hundreds of docked ships waiting for Customs or cleared already by the Command Tower.
Private Math Ross, Sonar Officer for the SSC Kuttner Space Station, had barely noticed the red dot on his screen. He dismissed it as nothing more than a system's bug. Overlooking operations was Lieutenant Willem Fold. Math looked up to see if his superior officer had noticed what he had seen. He had.
"Damn sorcerers, they think they can come from Nowhere and make themselves at home just because they can. I keep telling Jusk to recalibrate the sonar and make it more sensitive..." It was not unusual for Willem to tense

'Forgive me Father'
"Forgive me father because I have sinned," I half whispered.
"What did you buy now?" Came the voice from the other side of the phone - half a country away. Of course he was not a priest. It was one of my best friends answering the phone with his most 'business-tone', ignoring my small sacrilege altogether. Still sinned was the right word, I was broke.
"N3 II." I didn't need to explain that N3 II meant 'Ninety Nine Nights 2' nor that I bought it on credit.
"The critics are pretty harsh on it, you know?" Yeah, I knew, I had been the one sending him the Gametrailers link after all.
"Yeah, but it's N3, how many games do you know that allow you to kill thousands of enemies on the same screen?" It was a week defense, yet it was partially the reason I got it on the double when it arrived. The other was the aesthetic, of course.
"But Inphyy doesn't appear in it any longer."
I cursed silently. Inphyy was the female main character in the first one, and one of my favorite characters.

Paved with good Intentions
It had been a trap since the beginning. She had felt it, but being among strangers she had not been sure they would have listened to her advice. Besides which, time being of the essence, they could spare no delay due to doubt.
Now standing in the midst of mountains of grain they were surrounded by creatures out of some nightmarish Ustalavian folktale, gaunt, skeletal men; their eyes burning with blue fire and their bodies shrouded in black cloth; armed with wicked scythes of clear keleshite design. A dark fog clouded the air and stole the sound from around them. The creatures' numbers doubled their own.
Jordan found it ironic that she had to travel so far from Canterwell, alla the way to Absalom in order to confront her first undead, but as she drew her longsword she decided that she wouldn't allow them to be her last.

White Shadows, Chapter 3
Close to the witching hour, the streets of Westcrown are as deserted as they could be at any given time. They look lifeless, yet there is a certain rumor of life within them.
Taverns, both licit and not, remain open and from them come the spurs of life. Thugs and thieves of all kinds skulk the night in search of their next hit. Prostitutes fantasize in expensive brothels or tavern backrooms for that patron that would take them out of the streets, either to an honorable life or to one of exclusive debauchery. People of noble and common birth do shady dealings in dark alleys and secret rooms. They all have lookouts and watchers to keep them out of trouble. It is done with good reason.
Well guarded towers surround the city, while patrols of guardsmen and Hellknights search for troubles and illicit endeavors.
Yet there were those that none could see. Those who moved with stealth through alleys, cellars and sewers. Those who ran silently along Westcrown rooftops. White Shadows in the darkne

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: montalve.deviantart.com/journa…

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 01
Decisions of Faith 02
No Road Back Home 01

Paved with Good intentions

Now the art, I already had an I idea of how Jordan looked, I even got a done an image of her using Soul Calibur IV character editor , which was based mainly on Hellgate: London's Female Templar i943.photobucket.com/albums/ad….

From there there have been 2 lines fo artistry for Jordan, armored and dressed for ceremony. There are a lot more images than just this ones... I want just to show some examples of how does Jordan's look came to be.

First of all Jordan very 1st image by:iconlylla4:, actually I think this was my very 1st commision here in DA, she was in need so I asked an image of Jordan in ceremonial dress in her style, this was her first quick sketch for me.
Jordan's Portrait by Montalve

Ceremonial Dress:

Jordan Servant of Iomedae by:iconlylla4: was finally the artwork in the style I asked Lylla, since then I was in love with that dress design.
Jordan, Servant of Iomedae's by Montalve

Jordan Relaxing by:iconjessally: was done as a request for me in her wonderful style, bringing Jordan to greater detail, the expression and the attitude just being hers.
Jordan Relaxing by JessAlly by Montalve

Jordan Fenix, ready for ceremony by:iconshadcarlos: was the culmination on this especific line, Jordan looking marvelous and realistic, and absolutely beautiful, bringing both Lylla's dress design and JessAlly to a wonderful detail.
Jordan Fenix por ShadCarlos by Montalve

Armored Jordan:

Jordan's 1st armored design by :icongworeth: was done after asking for her in Paizo's Forum, he did a few designs and added a few changes until I was happy.
Jordan Fenix by gworeth by Montalve

Jordan Fenix, dressed for battle by :iconlrcommissions: in many senses this is the quintaessential Jordan, fit for war, practical and proud of herself and her faith.
Jordan Fenix by LRCommissions by Montalve

Realistic and Sexy Jordan by:iconsharby: was created in 3D, this is a sexier and sensual interpretation (some would say impractical) of Jordan, but the true merit of this image is that it gave a realistic and lovely face to my beloved cleric, just imagine some chain mail covering her naked skin... still I love how she looks like that.
Jordan Fenix by Sharby by Montalve

Jordan Fenix, Iomedae's Poster Girl Last but not least, :icon7sins7: made me the favor and honor of considering making an image of my favorite cleric. Here she is shown proudly killing a demon... and surelly setting her eyes in her next target... her expression wouldn't change if they were a couple demons or if she was surrounded... either she prevails.. or she takes as many as she can... anyway... Justice is served.
Jordan Fenix by 7Sins7 by Montalve

[NEW]
Jordan Fenix, ecclesiastic investigator of Iomedae, last image. I have been waiting for this image for a long time... but it was worth it :), :iconbutterfrog: did a wonderful work with my beloved cleric:
Jordan Fenix by butterfrog

And yes, this is the last of this Jordan... well there are others done already but I wanted to get a few stories before adding them, so i hope to add them soon... but now I am working in a different version and design for Jordan in her own setting. I hope to have something to show you all soon.

This image of Jordan appears in Wayfinder 3 along with Jordan's story: Paved with Good intentions
