Uramul seems to be mildly irritated at best about being kept waiting, but appears to get over it pretty quickly.

Aindrias is a… special sort of boy. He’s an ornery horse.

It’s easy to act tough when no one ever fights back… but once met with someone who can, and will if necessary, true colors shine through. Go run back to your mamas, ya jerks!

It’s all fun and games until you find someone not willing to cow to your empty threats.

Big (half-orc) man with a big attitude. I don't think our stranger is falling for the guffaw.

It is far too early in the day for people to be dicks to each other. Time to intervene!

Sometimes, you just want a simple job to pass the time. Sometimes… others don’t like to make things easy on you.

The scene opens in rural Lur, where a nameless warrior seems to be needing some directions.

@Hero of Comedy: Ha! Yeah wicked sorry about that. Between the holiday season and a vacation the husband and I took and trying to play catch up, I've been a bit quiet on posting things. I am hoping to fix that as much as I can though!
Forgot this was in my favorites until I saw this update.
A simple yet effective cover to symbolically illustrate things to come! Each cover will be similar to this, and will involve the element of magic that gets introduced by the Dragon's Tear found in the chapter. Because if I’m anything I’m a sucker for symbolism. Ha.

First up: Creation and Water!

Also… HAPPY NEW YEAR!

On that note… we have the end of the prologue!

... what? I'VE GOT NOTHING WITTY TO SAY HERE WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME.

I hope you've all enjoyed the prologue! I am so excited to start storyboarding for chapter 1... we get to meet a whole slew of new characters soon!
Fianna decides that her best course of action doesn’t involve her staying put. There’s a big world out there, and it’s about time to find her place in it.
The sun sets as Liam draws his last breath, and Fianna takes a private moment to mourn the loss of her father.
Fianna’s got a lot of… complicated feelings about her childhood. For many reasons. Liam knows this, and has always done his best to support her, and help her learn to deal with it.

But he knows his time is fleeting… and he knows his daughter is strong.
Liam is left with a moment of clarity in his twilight hours, and uses it to pass on some words of wisdom to his daughter.
