  1. Lothar

    Dreadlords Forgotten Slights

    "No! No, Loth, you don't have to do this, please." His thumb pressed a little bit harder. He hadn't quite gotten the hang of this part of the process yet, and the books he'd read on Isbrand Lorel had been sorely lacking in the detail. He could see the theories behind some of the other things...

    Fate - First Reply A Day in the Anirian Markets

    Every once and a while, Initiates get a day off. Most of the time, it was not out of kindness or intent on the proctors’ side. Rather, it was just how their schedule came to be. In Aelita’s case, she had a day between getting back from one mission to departing on the next. She decided to spend...
  3. Ralene

    Fable - Ask Shedding Skin

    The morning following What Happens After. Dreadlord Academy Stables Daybreak Following the events of their graduation, the stillness and quiet lingered throughout the academy like a bad sickness. There was yet any real closure to anything for most, but Ralene had the answers she needed to...
  4. Elspeth Sirl

    Fable - Ask Of Books & Brothers

    Even the Gilded District was gloomy beneath an overcast sky pregnant with rain. Elspeth Sirl watched through the window of her carriage as the shadow of dark storm clouds to the east slowly loomed overhead, promising to shatter the evening peace with the song of storm and thunder. Normally she...
  5. Leander Urahil

    Private Tales And Then There Was Some More

    “S’mores,” the woman corrected Leander, raising a eyebrow at him continually saying “some mores.” The smile on her dry lips told him that she didn’t find it obnoxious as much as she probably found it endearing. She gestured to the chocolate on display, jerking her head to motion the two...
  6. Olvir

    Fable - Ask Beaten and Bloody

    Vel Hetren His sword made a sickening squelching noise as he ripped it free from the Orc's center. Blood spraying over his fine tabard and the chainmail he wore beneath as he tore the blade free. The sound alone would have been enough to make most people sick, but in the moment Olvir barely...
  7. Zael Castomir

    Private Tales Just Prior

    The days in the Academy infirmary went on. Most of it involved cycles of intense magical purging and rest, sessions of the former awful but blessedly much shorter than the latter. Kimble's cold magic wasn't just elemental ice. It could be deeply infectious like a disease, constantly inflicting...
  8. Soleil Verdane

    Fate - First Reply Chameleon

    "What called?" Soleil asked the shopkeeper, Douglass Mueller. "That," Douglass said of the reptile on the counter which had caught Soleil's attention, "is a chameleon." A slow day was it, here in Mueller's Odds and Ends general store. Not situated in the bustling markets closer to Anir Square...

    Open Chronicles A Missing Pet in Vel Anir

    As she walked through the morning streets of Vel Anir, Aelita kept rereading the orders over and over again. Her eyes bounced back and forth between the parchment of words and the drawing of the missing creature. Eyebrows furrowed. A sigh followed. She panned her head around Velkath square. A...

    Private Tales The Weight of the Past

    Vel Anir - The Three Gutters Lileas Home. How long had it been? Five years? Six? Aleric couldn’t even remember anymore. The last time he had seen them he’d been a boy, less than a whelp and three times as cocky as he should have been. It had smelled the same then as it did now. A mixture of...
  11. Aleric

    Fable - Ask A New Noose

    Vel Anir - Slums The Painted Rat There were bars, there were taverns, and then there were places like the Painted Rat. Filled with murderers, cuththroats, robbers, thugs, and every other kind of criminal one could think of the ramshackle building had been a mainstay in the Slums of Vel Anir for...

  13. Kristen Pirian

    Private Tales Kristen the Impaler

    "Do you understand," said Proctor Magomo, leaning in dangerously close, "what it is you're asking me?" Kristen stood rigidly at attention in his office in the Proctors' Building of the Academy. She was keenly aware that the door behind her was closed. "Yes," she said, her voice quiet but...

  15. Everleigh Ebersol

    Private Tales Purple Butterfly on Your Left Shoulder

    Despite wanting to disregard Marianne’s suggestion, Everleigh did stop by the kitchens to snag a green apple. Somehow, taking one of the red apples seemed inconsiderate. She passed other initiates, not saying anything to them, but overhearing something about Ingrid and a bloody nose. Zael’s name...
  16. Kassandra

    Fable - Ask Winter Training

    "Kassandra, you cannot do this. I forbid it!" The King's voice rang out with such authority that one might have thought had actually had some semblance of power. Yet he was not sitting on his throne, he was not addressing the assembly, he was not even speaking to one of the representatives...

    Private Tales Double lives

    Ipatiy Kozlov It was one of those nights in Vel Anir. When the great city, pride of humanity, became blanketed in the cool embrace of night and it's imposing towers became the center piece of what was otherwise a beautiful display of human achievement. But it also displayed humanity's darkest...

    Hiya! new to the forum, don't even remember making the writer account but it exists ig lol! Spent a long time working on this char in my head and was finally able to type it all out on the forum. She's a little unorthodox but hear me out; Lilette Black-Briar is a vampire-elf who disguises...
  20. Soleil Verdane

    Fate - First Reply Trapped in the Rain

    Soleil Verdane was trapped. The young Dreadlord Initiate, as could be imagined, was having a bad day. This bad day had its seeds planted three days prior. A mission gone wrong, enemy forces of the elven Fellowship stronger than expected, many Anirian Guardsmen dead or routed. Dreadlords and...
