    Battles are sometimes won with bloodshed. Others are won in the silence between dawn and dusk. And sometimes there is a peace that lasts centuries. This is not one of those times.

    Often even the boundaries of an uneasy peace are tested with time. But not even time can heal the wounds of a battle fought between this plane and others.

    Good story... though I don't understand what it has to do with the title.

    the now-missing crimsons/Six breath fire ... silver-grey (as seen on the mysterious newcomers) is the gleen of platinum ... methinks we're building to a rather epic confrontation.

    Blink. A league passed. Blink. Three leagues.


    That line mad me laugh. They must have been sitting around fell when they thought of this. Just keep tossing new **** at us instead of fixing blatant problems that you admitted you knew about what is it now 2-3years?
     

  6. So they are speedhackers? :D

    Yeah, I'm stumped on that one too - but I've had a few amusing thoughts cross my mind.

    - I was thinking maybe Casca doesn't like cake :)

    Good story (stories).

    First Casca introduces himself in front of Blackthorn's castle & now this losing of a knight to a pawn!?!? This elven king smells more and more like trouble for Britannia.
    Then we have wounds and planeshifters and hints of battles; sounds to me like Britannia may be in for some rough times.

    For a brief shining moment, I saw the title and thought that George R. R. Martin had become a UO dev.

    Also, "Prosperity, magic and muffins."

    Muffins.

    Muffins!

    *sigh* Elves.

    *Raises eyebrow* This latest tale reminds me of a certain, sneak and despicably sly Grima Wormtongue! Ugh! *shivers*

    Whatever tomorrow brings, one will more than likely need to get in the habit of sleeping with one eye open and ye back to the wall. If there's any sleep to be had of course!

    Sleep with my crossbow across my chest bolt loaded.... if I sleep at all in the night.... being as I'm a Drow albeit a fallen one... I still prefer the shadows and the dark... Be certain my eyes and my ears are open.


    I was more concerned with this little slip:

    “But I didn’t. There was no word to …”.......

    makes those little hairs stand up on the back of your neck....

    I've enjoyed reading your fiction, Cal. Good writing! :)

    Seems there is definately epic trouble ahead for Sosaria...

    Yeah, the title caught my attention since I love Martin's series. I wonder if Cal is a Martin fan as well....

    Hmmm I am not. I grew up on Terry Brooks and Raymond E. Feist ... a touch of Jordan (MHRIP).

    I will check him out.

    A Song of Ice and Fire is probably my favorite fantasy series at the moment, so I highly recommend it. The first book is A Game of Thrones.
