Re: Black Flood: A Tale of the Trolloc Wars

Chapter Nine: Broken Legion A few leagues away, Lawe Cathon winced as Airena dabbed at his chest wound with a moist cloth.

Re: Black Flood: A Tale of the Trolloc Wars

Chapter Six: Getty's Canyon Lawe Cathon rubbed the tarnished watchglass on his cloak and fitted it to his eye. He studied the land before him and grimaced.
