Gretch Mountainborn - The Blind Wolf
A warm afternoon sun shone over the city of Kern Avanna, the largest harbor city in all of Lenori. Few of its streets were calm this time of day, as the hustle and bustle of traders and workers filled the streets with life. But a bit outside the center laid the dark quarters, those worn-down and dilapidated areas that had served as quarantine houses in the days when the Rakkhari spread their plague...Read more... | Go to storyline page
Investigator Alena - The wedding burglary
Alena of Esma was in many ways an epitome of the Seran ideal. Educated, thoughtful and clear-headed. But in other ways, she was far different from your average Seran woman. Today especially, she felt severely out of place. She stood dressed in her finest garments, dark vestments in blacks and blues, with only small gemstones that sparkled in the dim light. A fine, black veil of elaborate lace covered her face, just thin enough so that she could see through it. She stood huddled with others from her family, her mother and father on one side, and her brother and his wife on the other...Read more... | Go to storyline page

Wraithhunter Ilieva - The Duke's Rest
Evening had fallen on The Duke’s rest, a small tavern that hadn’t lived up to its fancy name in years. War and strife had taken its toll, but it was still a place dear to its regulars. Times were dark and everyone was on edge, and gathering with those near and dear to you was one of the few joys that remained. That evening, however, there were few visitors in the Duke’s rest...Read more... | Go to storyline page
Ranek the Smuggler - That damn Javenian
Thick mists covered the narrow streets of Idon Koresh, and a chilly autumn rain hurried late drinkers homewards. Somewhere in the night there was the sound of a cart slowly being dragged through the shadows, a low and careful murmur breaking the silence. If anyone but the Duke’s guard were awake (and sober) at this hour, they would maybe have seen a figure making their way along the most deserted back streets...Read more... | Go to storyline page
