    Private Tales An Enticing Song

    Alliria - The Painted Dragon There were a thousand strings that tugged along the underworld. Wires that ran to and fro, connected everyone and everything at a level that most might have thought utterly ridiculous. The games played in the dark alleyways of city streets were as intricate as those...

    Private Tales A Silver Tongue Turned Gold

    Alliria - Shallows "Oi!" His voice bellowed out through the warehouse, head shaking. "Careful with that you fucking 'git." It was almost painful to talk like that, but he had picked it up over the last few months. He'd found that the folk around here tended to react better when you spoke in...

    Private Tales Noodles and Death

    When the floating bits of rubble coasted downwards and re-settled upon the terrafirma the restoration of Elbion was able to begin in earnest. It had been a tumultuous time. Chaos and panic had stretched the Gendarmerie thin. It’d led to an explosion of crime and now that the populace wasn’t...

    OUTSIDE THE BLUEBIRD TAVERN Night had come again. And at last Hahnah could move freely. For three nights she had been trapped within the huge and formidable city called Oban.

    Fable - Ask Fortunes and Glory

    Dornoch - The Painted Lady Not the nicest tavern in the world, The Painted lady had always held a sort of charm to it. Never quiet, never overwhelming. A constant stream of miscreants, thieves, dock-workers, and dozens of other slices of life roamed through the tavern at all times. No one could...

    Fate - First Reply The Tempest's Wrath

    Thunder clouds rolled across the sky pulled by the Goddess Neket and her four strong slate grey horses. If the myths were to be believed it was the force of their hooves hitting the sky with such speed that caused the flashes of brilliant light that illuminated the clouds from within. A single...

    Private Tales Biting Back Bile

    Voxmire - The Gutter Run "I think I stepped in shit." Myna said as she lifted her boot and rested it on her knee, making a face that spelled only complete and utter disgust. It wasn't exactly the worst thing that you could step in when it came to Voxmire, in fact most people would simply ask...

    Fate - First Reply The Beast

    The Stone's Throw Inn loomed just ahead, shadows stretching long about its face from the sparse firelights of the night in Oban. Profane men awaited inside. Humans, Elves, people of all kinds had within their hearts a shifting line between good and evil. This Hahnah had come to know. But these...
  9. Elra Mistfall

    Private Tales The Radiant Flame

    Alliria, The Dragon’s Den… Elra’s eyes skimmed over the fancy cursive writing. Her lips bent into a deep frown as she read the letter over and over again. Still, no word, wherever Radis had gone, the Allirian Guard were clueless as to where. She took a deep breath. “I don’t need to worry; it’ll...

    Fate - First Reply Execution Day

    Ask anyone on the surface to describe Arethil’s Underrealm, and they would likely relate to you a claustrophobic tale of twisting tunnels and cramped squeezes, barely large enough for a man to fit through and dangerously close to collapse. They would be correct, for the Underrealm stretched like...
  12. Mako

    Private Tales Reckoning

    I always hate these little villages. Mako thought to himself with a slight frown as he hopped off the small cart and offered the old farmer a wave, his other hand coming up to flip him a coin. "You be careful now son, folk like you are considered bad luck in these villages." That warning was...
  13. Mute

    Private Tales Drugs and Deceit

    The mute and the urchin sat at an large and otherwise vacant table at the Elven Arrow Tavern, patiently waiting for others to arrive. At the moment, Mute was working on a piece of parchment, drawing the docks from memory as best he could. He'd learned over the years that when you had no tongue...

    Private Tales The Raven Club Gathering

    The Raven Club - Outer Alliria "SHIT!" Charity cursed loudly, slamming her fist down on the table as the dice rolled to a halt. Throwing back what was left of her drink she sighed.

    Wouldn't be the first time Jane ended up in a jail cell. Heh, Mainlanders. To be fair, yes, all those other times she was drunk and disorderly. But not this time.

    Open Chronicles Deals In The Dark[Alliria]

    The Serpent's Kiss Navaia lay half curled behind the bar of her tavern, chin resting in her hand, eyes fixed on the man in front of her. He was stuttering as he spoke, his hat in hand, sword on his belt, and a purse full of gold on the other side of his hip. The smile plastered on her face was...

    Open Chronicles The Wrong Job

    Alliria - Sewers "That didn't work out too well." Kala commented to the others as she dropped from the ladder and landed with a thud on the stony outcropping just to the side of a river of shit. Her nose crinkled slightly, lips turning as the contents of her stomach threatened to spill out...

    Private Tales Criminals In the Reach

    Allir Reach - Vess Kellen had never much liked the Allir Reaches. The little podunk towns that no one ever went to save to disappear, the farmlands, all the forest. He much preferred the cities, being around people, cloaking himself in half a dozen different ways. Out here? Out here he felt...
