For everyone just about sick to death of that old orc Grundoon, take heart. Although still a central character (and what a character he is, am I right?), it would be a mistake to think that the third book in this series is all about him. In fact, it is all about somebody else entirely. … Continue reading Book Three is on the Way!
The sun crept up with smooth sneakiness and was in the sky a full hour before Grundoon awakened. The Judicial Corp had marched their prisoners into Linkristle Castle sometime during the night, and the courtyard was filled with Red Guards milling about. The Governor-General put on his uniform and headed down to find out what … Continue reading The Governor-General’s Oath; Chapter 35
The old adage that runs "an ancient evil long forgotten can prove to be the most disastrous" was proven beyond a shadow of a doubt when the Diosian Lodge reached out from their fetid, unholy realm and struck a blow against Fanolania through the horrific power of one of their own, the Viceroy, as he … Continue reading An Act of Unspeakable and Unprovoked Evil (less than 20 minutes of pure carnage)

As he walked quickly, Grundoon kept looking towards the castle … Continue reading The Governor-General’s Oath; Chapter 33
There are precious few things that unite the various nations of the continent, and that includes the largely impotent international influence of the Church. One of the most effective forces that holds the most powerful states together is the Council of Schönbrunn. The major powers of Geldenreich, Fanolania, and Lusatia founded this somewhat informal alliance … Continue reading Common Cause
The Diosian Lodge is hardly the terrifying powerhouse of political and military intrigue that it was immediately following the fall of the last Imperium, and yet it does find ways to meddle in the affairs of it's neighbors, and even more distant states. Rarely is this manifested by one of the lich lords themselves, or … Continue reading Infamous Villains: the Viceroy
Grundoon woke up before the sun rose, and while he knew from experience that sleeping in his armor meant waking up with sore muscles and weary bones, it also meant not wasting precious time getting ready for a fight. He checked to see if Jandle was still asleep, and he was, so he shook the … Continue reading The Governor-General’s Oath; Chapter 32
