Fox, Crow and purpose

I’ve turned the lantern off, oil is expensive. There’s only light from the embers. This hovel isn’t much, but then again Ooshar isn’t much. It’s a frontier town corrupted by The Fox and Crow. The docks and lifts are slovenly. The Drop is essentially living dung. But the money is good. My family needs money.My…

Alleway lives

That petty gang that hangs in The Drop is up to something. The other day they cut a lift that Piyu was working. The trader from Qin, by way of Telse, lost a crate of dry goods, and the front of their boat needed repairs. It seems that riverboats don’t take well to cargo falling…

Stumbling towards Sheljar

They head out to the managed clover fields with their fences. The family cannot dedicate time to herd goats, not today. Dad will…

Piyu returns to a hut

This is another part of the tale of Piyu and Kellamon. The two unlikely friends were merely associates during the Awakening. When the Awakening Wars started they fled, like many the fled to Telse and the Everflow in a search for peace.
