Re: Black Flood: A Tale of the Trolloc Wars

Chapter Thirty-Three: Ninth Day The King's tent was surrounded by a ring of grim Heart Guards, hunting eyes following General Lawe Cathon's arrival, but did not move to stop him. Within the Guards was an inner ring of white-gowned Handmaidens whom Cathon had now recognized as channelers trained by ...

Re: Black Flood: A Tale of the Trolloc Wars

Chapter Thirty-Two: Fifth Day "Five days." Arcanum breathed out in a sigh. His keen eyes scanned the horizon for a sign. Any sign that any reinforcing army would appear. But they did not. They were two days late, if they were coming at all. Manetheren could not hold on without them. The men were we...

Re: Black Flood: A Tale of the Trolloc Wars

Chapter Thirty-One: Third Day Stef woke up with a splitting headache, stumbling to his bare feet and shaking away the daze. He eyed the unfamiliar surrounding in confusion, and tried to piece together the events of last night, but couldn't pierce the haze. He touched the red linens he had cast away...

Re: Black Flood: A Tale of the Trolloc Wars

Chapter Thirty: Second Day The sun's appearance across the eastern horizon did not see a halt or even a reduction in the fighting. Though the Trollocs had been pushed back across the river in the night's events, they had not given up, especially not when they had a bottomless source of bodies to dr...

Re: Black Flood: A Tale of the Trolloc Wars

Chapter Twenty-Nine: First Day Manetheren city disappeared in the veil of rain. The tall spires and victorious towers became faint shadows until they too fell away from vision. The night's bloody events too were washed away by the steady downpour. General Diest Arcanum looked forward and resumed hi...

Re: Black Flood: A Tale of the Trolloc Wars

Chapter Twenty-Eight: Most Trusted The blade glimmered dully in the candle light, its once virgin sheen now etched and covered with years of use and age. Stef slowly turned his wrist, keeping a stiff grip on the well-worn leather-wrapped hilt. He rotated the plane of the sword and nodded satisfacto...

The Summoning

The Old Knight marched down the austere Hall of the Fortress of Light, his heavy footsteps echoing through the corridor. But where they would have once mixed with serene peace, they now blended with the din of rushed activity in the Fortress. The heart of the Fortress pulsed with the blazing furnace...

Re: Black Flood: A Tale of the Trolloc Wars

Chapter Twenty-Seven: Wolfking of Manetheren The storm of ages raged against the Palace walls, lightning crackling in the high-set windows, painting stark shadows across the Hall.

Re: Black Flood: A Tale of the Trolloc Wars

Chapter Twenty-Six: The Approaching Storm "Is this all we have?" Arcanum stared at the rows of glistening and polished catapults lined up in front of the Eastern Courtyard.

Re: Black Flood: A Tale of the Trolloc Wars

Chapter Twenty-Five: Homecoming To Stef Reimos, the journey from Shayol Ghul was a blur in his memory. Immersed in the fog of delusions and fever, it was like a dizzy dream where nothing was in focus. Like the rest of the invalids and those too weak to walk, he was at first carried in the wagons, u...
