    A rendezvous met. His hateful eyes glared as the pyres burned, his helmet held at his side. The pyres were lined up perfectly, each holding the body of a slain Anirian Guardsmen. They were part of the Eastern Barracks, responsible for a large portion of the city wall. In total, 27 soldiers...

    Amroe - Formerly Vel Aren Aisling Weiroon Ein slowly turned his head, eyes flickering around the open square as he jumped down from the shotgun seat of the carriage.

    Wissburg - Formerly Vel Orius Edric stared silently up at the tree standing besides the road, his heart slowly beating in his chest, his stomach half turned upside down. Eight corpses. That was what he counted hanging from the tree. Four of them were men, three women, and one whose body was...

    Amol-Kalit: The Great Dune Sea Sweat dripped from Edric's brow, his fingers clutching tightly to the near empty waterskin that hung from his belt.

    Vel Luin "This is so BORING." Liliana lamented, chin resting in her hand as she sat just outside Warehouse 316A on the docks of Vel Luin.

    Fable - Ask Blood on the Water

    Vel Luin. Nowadays it was far more fortress than city, a monument to Anirian "progress" and strength. That, of course, was not to say that it wasn't still a port city, a trade hub. And trade hubs tended to draw the attention of...undesirables. While the primary harbor might've been extremely...

    Fable - Ask Retaliation

    Vel Innis Perched upon a large boulder, Liliana Lorel inspected her nails. "Honestly." Her tone was about as disinterested and listless as possible, the lack of enthusiasm almost so grating that it was hard to listen to.

    Lir Highway Elise sat back in her carriage, eyes cast out of the small window within the door. A Dreadlord Initiate stood there, his back straight, his shoulders square, and his face desperately attempting to hide the nerves he must have been feeling in that moment. She didn't know his name...
