Cerdic the Usual – Ch. 2

“Wait. We’re in the United States now?” Cerdic looked at the lift panel. All but one were now lit. He thought the one that wasn’t lit may have been the button Eric had pressed before, but he wasn’t sure. “Where else can this thing go?”

“Not now. I need to take you to the council chambers. They should be finishing up soon.” Eric motioned down the hallway. “This way, quickly.” Continue reading

The gods of Nevre: The Alchemist – Before

“Look. I’ve told you a thousand times. I can’t turn lead into gold. If I could I wouldn’t be working in an apothecary.” There was a block of lead sitting on his counter.

The Aliazian guard looked him up and down. “Look, Frevren. I don’t think you can either. It’s the king who thinks you can.” Continue reading

The Fractured Mountains – Ch. 6

Dreekt awoke again, this time he was lying by a fire on his bedroll. He tried to sit up, but this caused his head to throb. He tried to talk, and managed a raspy voice. “Hello? Burner, Adalet, Gaem? I need some water.” He wasn’t very loud and he hoped somebody heard him.

Burner’s face came into view, the dark sky behind her head. “Looks like he’s awake again. I think he asked for water.” Her head moved away, and Dreekt felt something lifting his shoulders and then something soft below his upper back. He tried to sit up again, but failed. When he fell back however he was at an angle that allowed him to see the fire without straining his neck.

“Here.” Adalet held a waterskin to his mouth for Dreekt to drink. He took a few small swallows. The water burned at first when it came in contact with his dry throat, but then it felt soothing. Continue reading

The gods of Nevre: The Smith – Before

Avron used his small hammer to bend the softened spoke back into place. “There, that’s fixed.” He cooled the cog in water then handed it to Zdenko. “I’ll do some work on that alloy tomorrow. I have some orders to fill today. Mostly nails for the new housing.”

Zdenko fitted the cog back into the intricate device he was working on for Amir. “Well, will you take Amir’s invitation to join the project proper after the rebuilding is done here?”

“Far be it from me to not accept an invitation from the crowned prince. Please extend my thanks for his blessing on me finishing up here.”

“He said his project comes second to the current well-being of the citizens. He actually said to urge you to finish up here first.” Continue reading

Darth Teslief – Pt. 13

When Darth Teslief got out of her fighter, she noticed the dock workers were in full-blown panic mode. “What the druk is going on?” She grabbed the nearest dock worker with the Force and held him in front of her. “Why is everyone running around like a gizka with its eyes burnt out?”

“We’re retrofitting some of the fighters in storage. Apparently, Admiral Verik found a way to take out the ship. I don’t know what it is. I just know we’re giving the ships double armor and are heavily modifying the cockpits.”

Teslief threw him at the nearest group of workers who softened his fall. She then keyed on her comm and pinged the bridge. “Admiral Verik, we need to talk.” Continue reading

RPG Corner, Homebrew – FFG Star Wars: Vorse Wolves

[RPG Corner is a monthly post where I talk about something related to Role-Playing Games.]

I made up a species of wolf for a Darkside FFG Star Wars campaign that became a one-shot. The basic premise is following a Sith Lord and his Apprentice around. This is in the Old Republic era somewhere non-specific in the storyline while the Rule of Two is in practice.

The planet we started on was Ziost. According to the Wookieepedia article, the planet is in an ice age and was forested. As far as I know, this planet was referenced in the Force and Destiny beginner’s game only so there are no creatures from there with stats. Likewise, the Wookieepedia page didn’t list any creatures native to the planet. To that end, here are my Vorse Wolves. Continue reading
