Chapter 7: Part 2 – The Minds of Asura

AmberHeader1-5It was a relief to hold a meeting somewhere other than a musty cave or an abandoned building, or even the middle of the wilderness. Indeed, it was actually a relief to see Darr again, even if he was sitting in a tavern so loud I could barely hear myself think.

We shuffled into the seats around Darr, and for a moment he just beamed at us. The last time we’d seen him, I recalled, Spark had just activated Souleater, only to make a break for Ascalon. Finally, we were back together again – minus one.

“I’m sorry about your ranger friend,” Darr began, flicking a hand in the direction of the bar to order us drinks. “That sounded like quite an unfortunate incident, by all accounts.”

Whose accounts? I wondered. I’d been under the impression that Darr’s intelligence gathering operation was comprised solely of himself and Caolinn – and, inadvertently, me – but perhaps he’d expanded in recent weeks.

I glanced at Spark, but she gave no reaction. I was certain she was genuinely remorseful over Blaise’s death, but she’d never exactly apologised, and I didn’t expect her to now. Indeed, the conversation might have been about someone else entirely, given the blankness of her expression.

Shards Of Memory – Chapter 12, Part 1 – The Throne Room

564596-1920x1080-[DesktopNexus.com]

Zuhaira reflected, once the group had retired to bed, on what she had seen that day.

She had witnessed them open the box, and speak with the golden head inside. It spoke with a strange accent, or it spoke with strange words, she did not know. It had been a long time since she had been forced to mingle with the landwalkers.

She sat and watched, trying to identify which of them was the strongest. The older woman brimmed of power, buzzing beneath her skin, like lightning in a jar. The small one spoke with intelligence but was nervous, and did not speak up unless there was a pause. The two kodan were alike in many ways, although the smaller spoke with more certainty and more often than the larger. When the larger spoke, she could hear his voice from all corners of the room, never from his mouth, like catching an echo around a corner. She dismissed the giant, as he was young, and clearly untrained. He was strong, and muscular, but his shoulders were unset and he played with the snow leopard cub like a child. She would watch, and wait more before she issued her challenge.
She slept lightly, and awoke when she heard them speaking loudly over breakfast.

Chapter 11: Part 5 – Pact Camp Mausoleum

part5The outpost shouldn’t have been much further but it was difficult to see through the fog that was coming in by sea. A small shiver made its way through my body as the air turned cooler. The jungle we had left behind was night and day compared to the dead land we had just stepped into. Boots and shoes on the bridge were a cacophony of clanks and creaks. Ragnvaldr lead at the front. He not only was easy to follow, but seemed to know where he was going in this sudden fog. Tobih and I were sandwiched in between him and Angel. Under Ragnvaldr and Angel’s guidance, we agreed to let Angel guard us two humans from behind while we traveled.

Ragnvaldr halted suddenly, causing me to bump into him. He looked behind at me; when he turned to face forward again, he walked slowly forward. “This doesn’t look good. Keep your wits.”

He kneeled down at the body of an asura on the ground. He lifted the asura’s hand and let it fall back to the ground. “This was recent. I hope they’re still alive inside.” He stood up and motioned for us to stay back. Angel pulled the greatsword from her back.

Chapter 7: Part 1 – No News is Good News

AmberHeader5-5A golem the size of a small town would, you’d think, draw a certain amount of attention. In the days that followed, though, there was curiously little chatter about Zurra’s creation, and though we felt a series of continued rumblings from the volcano behind us, no-one in the vicinity seemed to think it anything out of the ordinary. Of course, much of the area we passed through was utterly deserted, desolate swamp and the like, but to find not even a single curious scout was disheartening. Zurra had built – and loosed on the world – the mostly deadly golem ever seen… and the world hadn’t even noticed.

Things didn’t get much better in Lion’s Arch. It was a relief to be back there, of course, after days in the wilderness, but even the most informed inhabitants of the city seemed to know nothing of Zurra’s activities. There were no high-ranking members of the Order of Whispers available to hear our concerns, according to Caolinn, and Erin had no greater luck interesting the Priory in our findings. For now, we were on our own.
