    Private Tales I'll Be Your Huckleberry

    This wasn't supposed to be a hard day. Travel from point a to point b, it should've just been a nice little walk through the woods. Unfortunately, the spirit of the forest didn't agree with his supposition. Shaky fingers bent into a sign against evil, as he hopped off of his horse, Falstaff...

    Fable - Ask Something Lurks in the Shadows

    The carts stood in the road, their contents untouched. If not for the complete lack of people near to hand, it wouldn't have been near so odd, or so patently creepy. The sun shone high overhead, but the thick canopy of the trees prevented the majority of the brilliant light from reaching the...

    Completed Hanging Upside Down

    Swaying gently. Back and forth. Back and forth. Kristen Pirian's eyes opened slowly, her vision clouded and out of focus. There was a soreness on the side of her head, some blood in her hair. Her ponytail dangled, the tip of it pointing down to the ground some thirty feet below. One of her...

    Private Tales Staying Low

    From the treeline it was obvious that someone had returned to the farmstead. It hadn't been Arwylvs troupe either. They wouldn't have left the doors wide open to every house and barn. The Dreadlord must have come with more than one helper and they had been sent tracing Arwyl's path. They...
