Before Nova could move, she felt something hard push her and she was thrown back. She fell down, her head bouncing on the stone floor with a loud crack. Everything turned black.  Nova wasn’t sure how long she had been out, but when she woke up, she was in a cave. She sat up, looking READ MORE

Wayfarer’s Guild – Chp. 52 – Scramble

Nova felt strange. Like she was seeing without seeing. Everything was slightly blurry. Everything but the tree. The glow had grown brighter around the tree and there was a sense of anger around it. Like it would lash out at anyone that came near it. Nova didn’t care. She lifted her artifact, her staff. It READ MORE

Wayfarer’s Guild – Chp. 51 – A Path

Darkness was everywhere. Nova spun around, trying to figure out what happened. She thought the Cradle tree had ejected her but this didn’t seem like the ruins. Shit!

Wayfarer’s Guild – Chp. 50 – Cradle Tree

When Nova opened her eyes, she wasn’t in the ruins. She was in a dark room, covered in pale brown branches.

The pitch grew higher and higher READ MORE

Wayfarer’s Guild – Chp. 47 – Crafting a Plan

They didn’t manage to come up with a plan that day or the next. Nova couldn’t help looking at the time sliding away on the quest. Of course, getting the artifact wasn’t a make-or-break thing but she felt getting her hands on an artifact would help her get much further in her class. She still READ MORE

Wayfarer’s Guild – Chp. 46 – Restart

Before they left, Nova was checked over by Oren’s people. After she wandered off on her own, they had to make sure she wasn’t hiding anything. It was a good thing she hadn’t brought the bow with her. It did mean that she would have to find a different way of getting it out of READ MORE

Wayfarer’s Guild – Chp. 45 – Confrontation

Nova slowly stood up, keeping her eyes on Kellston. Her weapon was in pieces and the dagger lost. Even her shards were gone. Luckily, there were rocks all around. Would that be enough? She heard movement to the side of her.  “Mathius, are you okay?” Nova asked. “Yes. You’re the one injured. Nova, I tried READ MORE
