Lost Hope

2/15/2019 The story continues in the lead up to Rising Tide and we invite you to sit back and enjoy, Lost Hope. By EM Malachi Many years ago… The rowboat leaked. With soggy boots, Lassorn spent each trip out to the anchored HMS Cape bailing water. They had drawn straws to see who would have to make the slog, and Lassorn now had to make eight trips across Lost Hope Bay to Minoc and back to the ship.

The Rune Carver

2/5/2019 As we approach the release of Rising Tide we invite you to sit back and enjoy the introductory tale of, The Rune Carver.
