A tale of fish and wine Part 2
Posted by Russell Firecrest on May 12, 2017 at 4:03am

The Albatross sailed through clear blue skies, spotted with a few fluffy hints of cloud. Captain Firecrest smiled as he stood at the ships wheel, eyes drinking in the view stretching out before him. Seagulls flew in spiralling patterns beneath, calling to each other as a fishing boat began to reel in its nets somewhere below.

Rowan stood hanging onto a rope near the bow of the ship, peering down at the birds with a wide grin. Her long...

A tale of fish and wine.

It was a remarkably clear night on the New Babbage docks. The spring rains had fallen and taken with them some of the industrial smog that normally filled the air. In places, it was almost possible to see the sky. The clear air made approach a little less treacherous as Captain Firecrest guided the Albatross downwards.

The job was a simple, but hopefully lucrative one. Wiggyfish, the foul-smelling and dangerous swimmers native to the...

4/1 - Hunting Confusion (Devil's Toenail)
Posted by Bookworm Hienrichs on April 1, 2017 at 4:55pm ...5 replies

I heard rumblings of a planned monster hunt in the sewers today, and thought I'd best go along.  It was quite the group that went down the hole by City Hall - urchins, newcomers, experienced residents, most of them armed to the teeth.  We split up into a couple of groups; the one I was with went east at first, but didn't see anything.  So we backtracked to the Square area... and that's where all hell broke loose.

Looks uglier than it smells
Posted by Domino Dust on March 27, 2017 at 4:10pm ...2 replies

Domino clambered through a broken hole in a tunnel wall under Loner Lane. The fowl smell of the sewer hit her and she crinkled her nose. She had climbed out to change into something more sensible and collect weapons to explore the new sink holes. Cut stones from the tunnel walls lay strewn around, broken and smashed by what ever had passed through.

It Came From The Sewer!
Posted by Scottie Melnik on March 24, 2017 at 8:53pm

Scottie stirred on the cold wet stone of the sewer floor, his clothing soaking in Builder-knew-what and his body groaning in pain. He attempted to move his limbs and this time his body cried out in agony. Grunting, he started wiggling his toes and fingers, ankles and wrists, knees and elbows. His mental inventory complete and indicating that yes, he hurt like hell, he forced himself to roll onto his back and let out a pained sigh.
