Kehailan just stood there, looking at the empty spot in the docking ring and shaking his head. “Of course you know without any shadow of a doubt who took it,” he said irritably.

“Did I say that?” the man in the adjutant’s uniform asked, his eyes, his voice, his attitude all proclaiming his contempt for Kee’s defense of his father. “All I said was, the only fugitive we have who is intelligent enough to fly a prototype clipper is Ardenai Firstlord.”

The Day the City Shook: Chapter 6 [SERIAL]

Squire Fidel squirmed uncomfortably under those electric blue eyes. “I’m sorry,” he said again, desperately hoping to sound sincere, “but what can I do? He was here, I swear he was. My men will tell you he was here.”

The Day the City Shook: Chapter 5 [SERIAL]

“Two down, one to go,” Sarkhan muttered, pushing over the queen on his chessboard. “I like the rumor I hear. I especially like the one about Ardenai doing away with the lady Io. Somehow I doubted he would.”

Amaranth Cosplay: Dr. Mrs. The Monarch Conquers more of Gencon [MODEL GALLERY]

I made this gallery because JT Hanke (of Goth Viking Photography) took so many amazing photos, I couldn’t believe it and had to show you more. These are the photos that maybe didn’t have the perfect place to go in my Gen Con article, but I can’t stand the thought of not sharing with you!
