    Fable - Ask A Walking Memory

    Talus frowned for a moment, searching his friends expression. A question crept to the forefront of his mind. He felt a pang of guilt for it, for Sierra, but...he couldn't help it. They were Dreadlords. They had been raised as soldiers. Taught to kill, fight, and slaughter their way through...

    Quest The Tides of the Dead

    The golem seemed to shudder as the first of the Trebuchet's massive stones hurled into it, their aim assisted by Milla's force fields. A loud slam echoed out over the battlefield, then another, then another. It seemed almost thunderous as the creature was pelted again and again by the great...

    Quest The Tides of the Dead

    The Dreadlords ran themselves regged. Ladders were tossed back, fire bloomed, and it was obvious that their magics were having an effect. The Undead had seemed endless, yet as more of the robed figures fell the mass of corpses began to thin. The Black Tide beyond the wall began to slow, their...

    Quest The Tides of the Dead

    The dead were wiped away. It was a beautiful, almost heartwarming sight. A few cheers went up, some of the soldiers letting out their adulation as they saw the work of the two Dreadlords. It was a sign that there was a chance, that the magic of Vel Anir could overcome the tide of dead. All of...

    Fable - Ask A Walking Memory

    Talus considered him for a few moments, looking across at his old friend. There were marks of familiarity, that much was sure, but there was also something different. His lips thinned for a moment, and he motioned to a nearby waitress. A drink was ordered, but his focus was hardly there. "Fewer...

    Fable - Ask A Walking Memory

    Talus stepped into the tavern with no swagger. He kept his profile low, dressed in workmens clothes and with a cloak over his head. The color of his skin still did not match those around him, but most within the tavern didn't pay him much attention. The people in a place like this didn't care...

    Fable - Ask A Walking Memory

    Talus nodded, it was something, and although the man could simply be trying to throw him off...he decided to trust him. Hal had never betrayed him. Had never told his secrets or tried to kill him, had never sought him harm. The man had served Virak, but to his soul Talus believed that in the...

    Fable - Ask A Walking Memory

    Confusion flickered over his features. He looked at his friend, his head cocking for a moment as he searched for some sign. He spotted no lie, no deception, but he was confident this was Hal. He recognized him, saw the look in those eyes, the lines of his cheeks. "Hal." Talus had grown up with...

    Fable - Ask A Walking Memory

    Talus ran like a man, slamming the door shut behind him and crossing onto the street. The moment his feet struck the dirt road he slowed, his gait falling in step with the rest of the crowd. A hood was pulled over his face, the brown cloak dragging over his features to conceal his pale Anirian...

    Fable - Ask A Walking Memory

    Varés Henry Bauer Talus stood quietly on leaning on the side of the window, watching the streets below with no small amount of disinterest. Varés was one of the Free Cities of Cortos, one of the few places that the Radiant Church had not managed to dominate completely. The Count here had...

    Quest The Tides of the Dead

    The battle was setting it's own pace now. It was something he had learned about Kyslith during the last battle, when they had assaulted the walls of a city that most thought to be a fortress. Vel Anir was more so of course, defended by the army of the West, kept together by hundreds of...

    Open Chronicles Morning, Disrupted

    "Ah." Talus said as he looked down towards the reigns. In truth, he hadn't exactly been watching where he was going. Capturing the man had been his priority. Sadun was dangerous, a murderer, and one that had escaped the Guard for some weeks now. Noble by birth, he'd gotten away with far too...

    Open Chronicles Morning, Disrupted

    The commotion, as it turned out was caused by Talus. He phase-walked through the crowd in an instant, jumping between person after persona and sliding through like he was walking on ice. Just ahead of him was a man, if you could call him that. He was shrouded in a hood, his armor concealed by a...

    Quest The Tides of the Dead

    Talus drew in a breath. They had fought these things before. They had seen what these creatures could do, what they were capable of. They knew how to fight them and they knew what their weakness was. Fingers tightened as he looked around at the sea of black in front of him. Talus didn't know...

    Private Tales Read between the lines

    It was not always easy being them. The hidden life that they lived, the way that they had to tuck themselves away and deceive those around them. A lot of people knew of them now, knew the truth, but it didn’t make it any easier that they still had to hide. He supposed that would change soon...
