Raydorn: The War in the Black (Chapter 45)

“There are some people who you don’t hide the truth around. They’re your people, but they don’t always know that.” Henry Lockley, the Bard of the Song, 437 A.C.A. There was safety in the shallow waters around the Icy Pearl Isles. Even if you were dead, you should feel the rush of an incoming shark […]

The Wolf Pack (Chapter 24)

The Understanding THE HOOD Walking out of that courtroom, I feel like I’m on top. There are many things I’ve done as the Hood, but speaking isn’t one of them. Everyone is always guessing my motives, my mindset, and now they have a bit to chew on, a bit that chews into them as much […]

Raydorn: The War in the Black (Chapter 44)

“Oh, to be bred and domesticated, just to die.” Astrid, 448 A.C.A Gronin was the God of the Earth. Zenos could claim to be the God of Sky, and Thassia the Goddess of the Sea, but they knew they were the surface of all that was Him. And so, across the world, people across different […]

The Wolf Pack (Chapter 23)

The Removal of Power KEN It’s so tranquil here, so beautiful. The Satpura Range in India is gorgeous, breathtaking, there’s so much greener here than in Seoul, and certainly less people. Maybe not to the people here but… Standing before the mountain range, I see less stone than I do green by the mountainsides covered […]

Raydorn: The War in the Black (Chapter 43)

“For now, we’ll be the only two people in the world.” Quintus Lato Equitus, 448 A.C.A. The walk from the ship to the road wasn’t long.

The Wolf Pack (Chapter 22)

The Trial THE DIRECTOR I’m sure no one should be surprised, but Dr. Stupid-ass-name is being picked up across the country, not just by Aegis City’s news outlets. For once watching TV is of the utmost importance and not just my lunch time entertainment. And for once the news isn’t purposely trying to anger me, […]

Raydorn: The War in the Black (Chapter 42)

“Some people just need to learn when to shut up.” Stygis, the Wolfhunter about Henry, the Bard of the Song, 440 A.C.A. There is one building in Raydorn that rivals the Silver Spires of Sicaron. Not in the way the Spires shine, and not in the way they were constructed. Cloudtower was the only building […]

The Wolf Pack (Chapter 21)

The Lunch Break THE HOOD “Thank you again for doing this!” Emily yells. She has to yell so I can hear her over the wind. We’re flying to her house, and she’s got me on her shoulders again. It’s better than being carried bridal style, but it’s still… weird. I don’t mind flying so much, […]

Raydorn: The War in the Black (Chapter 41)

“The foreboding, terrible, downright-sinister feeling that comes when someone’s annoying you… it never goes away. Sorry to tell you.” Henry Lockley, the Bard of the Song, 447 A.C.A. While they may not have enjoyed the idea of going with Jack to Cloudtower, making Andy describe her vision convinced them. Malum and Astrid spent hours combing […]

The Wolf Pack (Chapter 20)

The Stakeout PYRE Stakeouts are boring. It’s one of the few things movies never succeeded in making look fun, but they at least turned that into a joke. It’s not funny in real life. It’s just sitting and waiting for someone to do something, and that can never be anything but boring.   We started […]
