The heavy trapdoor opens, turning on rusty hinges with a sharp squeak, then fall with a crash. The noise echoes in the small empty room like a thunder in the clear sky and, for a long instant, my heart stops. I look straight into the eyes of my new comrades that look at me, in astonishment, from the bottom of […]
REED THE HIN
Fort Doom, aka Old Halag, the fortress city facing the gulf bearing its name is the third city for inhabitants in the whole Grand Duchy and, after the capital, it’s the most important port. It’s Karameikos’ door to the West of Known World, someone said! The day is bright, the sky clear. I bet that if only I could […]
THE BAD ATTITUDES OF A DANGEROUS MIND.

Wearing my travel cloak I decided then to […]
