Re: Chronicles of an Outcast

There was a time in my life that I was not a free, killing thing, or an instrument of a dark divinity’s will. I had been trapped by one who thought himself clever to capture me as I murdered one of my many hunters. He found me burying my knife into the skull of one of my Shadow Elf kin. I was distra...

Chronicles of an Outcast

My first kill among the hunters sent to erase the sin of the queen was, ironically a woman herself. Her snowy white hair was piled atop her head and only ringlets escaped, like ivy upon a wall, to dangle before an attractive, but unpainted pale face. She was somebody’s beloved, somebody’s wife and p...

Chronicles of an Outcast

I make no apologies for my manner of doing things. Even now, as I look upon the scars on the palms of my hands and consider where my soul will be going when this all ends, I have no regrets. I do not care that I have damned myself and I do not care that every time somebody looks at me, it is with at...

The Blackgate Journal

by T.A. Saunders ©2012 Tiri 30, 1323 AC After weeks of testing, I am confident that the Blackgate can be used safely to transport both materials and people across Imarel and Ishaela. The immediate benefit to this will be the ability to get large amounts of building material here in short order and ...

The Blackgate Journal

by T.A. Saunders ©2012 Tiri 2, 1323 AC I have had a most enjoyable holiday in Farwind, with Shulin, Asha and my nephew, Aerisaen. The boy continues to astound all of us with his quick wit and ability to cognitively process things. At two years, he is all ready reading, writing and completing arithm...

The Blackgate Journal

by T.A. Saunders ©2011 Roshat 19, 1322 AC This morning, during the meeting I normally have with Commander Langsford and the rest of the officers of the Blackgate Vanguard, it was made clear to me that I have the means of which the Blackgate can be activated on my person at all times. This is both a...

The Blackgate Journal

by T.A. Saunders ©2011 Roshat 6, 1322 AC Much has happened since my last entry, though to explain what happened, I will need to further explain the functionality of the Blackgate. Without this understanding, the explanation will be complete gibberish to somebody who isn’t some sort of magi or schol...

The Blackgate Journal

by T.A. Saunders ©2011 Lhanys 30, 1322 AC I have decided to keep a journal on matters involving the infamous Blackgate, of which the Blackgate Vanguard now presumes to be able to control. As a scholar, the rediscovery of this relic is profound to me and one could spend years studying the magic that...

Legacy: Seeds of Deception

CHAPTER SIX RAW DEAL It was raining. It wasn’t much, but the fine drizzle of water was enough to wake the man, face- first in a pile of refuse, in some forgotten alley in the city of Kalynn. Despite this being a relatively new city, human filth could quickly become a swampy morass of stench during ...

Legacy: Seeds of Deception

CHAPTER FIVE RITE OF PASSAGE Yas’r 5, 1362 AC, the city of Kalynn “Our spy within the Order brings word, Mistress,” Adaliu murmured quietly to the shadow-kissed altar of Synri, before her, while making every attempt to ignore the grunting, moaning and the rhythmic thumping coming from the chambers ...
