Blight pt. 1

The nectar and ambrosia are withheld; And in the midst of spoils and slaves, we thieves And pirates of the universe, shut out Daily to a more thin and outward rind, Turn pale and starve. Therefore to our sick eyes, The stunted trees look sick, the summer short, Clouds shade the sun, which will not ...

The Warmth of Soil

So they sat and settled, Their ambition lulled to sleep, Without a goal to bind them, Vice within did creep. Though conquest was rewarded, Though new lands did bear fruit, In laze they were forgetful, They grew everything but roots. For all their lust to manifest, For all their plunder and toil, Th...

Re: Heartlines

A letter regarding an Adventurer's Guild is sent to Sir Dupre, Mayor of Trinsic

Valonia wasn’t sure yet what to do with the numbers she had gathered over several days. It had been, admittedly, mind-numbing work to observe and count and record. But this was necessary, she believed. And she hoped that she could glean some sort of insight over the movements of people, and perhaps ...

Hiraeth

Many years ago… The old man felt himself being shaken awake. And kicked by what felt like… sharp hooves? In his younger years, he might have been quicker to strike with his staff. The best he could manage these days was blinking his eyes open and blearily focusing on what was around him. “Grandfath...

Questions of Honor

The way south was even more dangerous than the road north. Going north to Yew had been arduous, but still relatively straightforward.

A letter is sent to Iolo Fitzowen, Mayor of Britain

Nature was a system of connections. Changing one part of a system could easily impact another. Eliminating a rodent, for example, could change how a plant’s seeds were transmitted, which could change how a bird nested, which could change how an animal was able to feed… and so on. So when a person wa...
