  • What Fresh Hell is Byss 2

    “Of course I am alive,” Nerida says, staring at Sheik like she is crazy. To be fair, Sheik's concern was natural. Everyone but me probably thought she was dead as well. “But, but how?” Sheik insists, “You were gone so long! We thought you had …

  • Prologue

    [[:nerida | Nerida]] Standing outside the doors to the High Priestess Zalissa’s sanctum, I tried to unclench my fists. I had only been an initiate for a year and I had already been summoned for the task that would allow me to become a full clergy, …

  • I'm a Human

    [[:nerida | Nerida]] Arriving in the city, I had to promise two years of military service and not to proselytize. Their church seemed to be very strict on unity, as division would weaken them against relentless enemies outside. If I was to spread …

    My dear brother , I'm writing you from a different plain called Byss. This is a desolate place. They are flat marshy unforgiving lands as far as the eye can see, and that's not far, as this place is covered in a fog like haze. There are monsters and …

  • Secrets are Discovered

    [[:nerida | Nerida]] After arguably the best meal I’ve had here, I realized that I neglected to heal Alix earlier. He was walking around much better than he had been the day before, but was obviously still in pain. He…was an interesting fellow. …

  • Edge of Madness

    Once we agreed upon first watch I pretended to retire as well, but instead I sneaked out. I had thought I quiet enough but perhaps our guide and the celestial are just insomniacs. The celestial questioned my resolve to retrieve Cheshire’s “instrument” but …

  • My Dear Brother

    You'll never guess what I woke to this morning. It wasn't ghouls, ghosts, monsters, or dragons; it was my own companions trying to kill each other. Sheik the barbarian was bog boarding ( if that is really a thing, you know how some truly awful people …

    It's late. I should be asleep, but I'm too excited to sleep. My mind is full of the wonderful things that will happen tomorrow. I roll over and hug my pillow. I try to close my eyes again but it's no use. I can't succumb to sleep when I know what's in …

  • The March to Freedom

    [[:nerida | Nerida]] Trying to catch my breath, I rested my forehead against Anduin, drawing comfort from his soothing, positive energy. I didn’t understand where Anduin had come from or why I felt he belonged in my hand, but I was inexplicably tied …

  • I Will Meet Death’s Blade with My Own

    [[:nerida | Nerida]] While Alix looked out the window, I went to investigate some file cabinets in the room looking just like the ones in Agorran’s office. If I was going to find the records on the war, they would probably be in there. Maybe it didn …

  • The Fall of a Lord

  • Edge of Madness Part 2: Resolve

    [[:l-innir | Lóinnir ]] It happened quickly as most things did on this journey. The last few days had been a blur, the rage, the desire. I wanted Dovev, I wanted my master back, but I had turned and ran when he was in sight. Now as I stand on the wall, …

  • Hold Me Close, Hold Me Tight

    [[:nerida | Nerida]] Floating, drifting in peaceful reverie, I could have remained there forever, content to allow that which would wound me pass me by. Why fight to remain awake when every mere movement was a battle I would wage, each victory …

  • The great Byssian Ocean

  • Vampires

    Vampires were relatively unheard of in Byss, until the Great Search neared it's end. We should have known that was by device, and not by fortune, for there is no good luck in Byss. And as nearly, if not all, other varieties of undead were found in Byss, …

    Alix was destined for death, and yet fate has twisted and bent around him at the behest of Cheshire. He was to be one-punched, and yet survived (4 fate points), so his fate must be powerful and dread indeed to have pulled him through such a set-in fate.
