No Quarter

3/18/2019 The story continues in the lead up to Rising Tide and we invite you to sit back and enjoy, No Quarter. By EM Malachi The mage had surrounded himself with the maps. Some were ancient parchment, their mistakes and ignorance covered with drawings of dragons and drakes. Others were current shipping routes, still bearing the wax seal of Vesper Customs. The rest were faded or moldy sketches done by pirate captains over the years. Rankin frowned. “What am I supposed to be seeing?” “A new kingdom,” replied Hook, as he sharpened a knife. Rankin traced a circle around Buccaneer’s Den on […]

The Guild

3/1/2019 The story continues in the lead up to Rising Tide and we invite you to sit back and enjoy, The Guild. By EM Malachi “Do you think Young Budo is dead?” Lord Dalgrin looked down his nose at the balding man wearing only worn breeches who had asked the question. The gentleman pirate normally wouldn’t waste his time speaking to such riffraff, but these were interesting times. He reached into a silk coin purse bearing the heraldry of his disgraced house and pulled out a few gold coins. He bought another round of drinks for those at the Pirate’s Plunder and […]

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. If the sailor’s orders hadn’t been specific, Lassorn might have been able to deliver the cargo in fewer circuits, but the contents of the crates […]
