Celeste: a Malifaux storyShe gazed in awe and wonder through the shop window. Inside behind several layers of protection: iron, glass and magic; lay several different crystals, each one glowing with its own eerie light. From their sizes, she could tell that the smallest of them; was less than than nail on her little finger, whilst the largest was closer to the size of her thumb. This was not the first time she had seen them: neither would it be the last.Yet it was rare to see so many together, much rarer to see them on this side of the Atlantic. The young woman looked up and down Briggate before peeling herself away from her awestruck fascination; and over towards her nearby friend.The Elf looked curiously towards the human girl, her features barely noticeable beneath her large brimmed hat. She smiled as he companion neared."So? what was so interesting in that window that you had to have a look?""Wasn't it obvious?" the young human woman replied with a mischivous smile, opening her purse slightly to reveal
Spirit of the Animals- Spirit of the DeerSpirit of the Animals-Spirit of the Deer"I don't see how it could get more perfect," Dana said to herself as she made her way into the cabin she had rented for the weekend, putting her rifle down by the door as it closed. Walking over to the sink, she washed the dirt and blood from her hands, watching the brown mixture as it ran down the drain.Not many young women she knew would have considered a weekend hunting trip to be a perfect time, most of her friends and acquaintances back in the city would rather be shopping or watching their favorite reality shows. But to her, this was the best way to spend her time. This weekend had even gone better than planned. Not only had she bagged a beautiful doe, but she also came across quite the handsome gentleman, who helped her load the deer on her car. She'd have to call him later and thank him for his generosity with a bit of her own.She grabbed a few moist paper towels to clean the remnants of dried blood off h
'I don't Belong here...'A soft summer breeze hit Kodan as he stood hovering over the ravine, rustling his hair and vest. He sighed. It was another hot day in Leastrin, but up here the wind made it endurable, almost nice. He could sit down and stay in place for the whole day, and just enjoy the cool breeze- but he had plans. He looked down the ravine- it was deep. At least a fourty-block drop down. If he fell, it was over. - Of course, being a spawn he'd just return, but falling to your death and snapping your back didn't seem all too pleasant to him. He sighed again, determinded to get down but not knowing how to. There were no ledges or something he could use to get down. He'd found the ravine two days before, when he was out with Aro to look for some coal since they had run out. Kodan had insisted he wanted to go down, but Aro wasn't hearing any of it- too risky she had told him, since the ravine was a while out and they were carryng quite some resources at the time. And above of those two- Aro
Frosty Friendship in the Chill CastleThe path to the long forgotten building was a long one for Marissa. The Brumal Alcazar, which was a fanciful name for Cold Castle, was a building made centuries ago by people who dwelled in the north.It was said that the whole of the grand palace was made of ivory and that barbarians once inhabited the Alcazar. The stories also said they were thieves and vagabonds who took their hauls to the great castle. Many who had tried to walk the path toward the large, chilly structure had met their end due to severe cold or how vast it was. The few who returned alive mentioned how lost they were once they entered and how slowly they began to feel the numbness of cold overtake them, the chilling winds howling and reminding them of their own impending doom.Nonetheless, the red hatted young lady wasn’t afraid to enter the palace. While she normally had an aversion to the cold, she found she was able to use her necklace, which was driven by the wearer’s imagination, to create a field o
Red dispairShe looked into the darkness, searching for hope: yet all she found was blood, hunger and dispair. A new Vampiress was born from her soul.
