  Tepic knew how to get back to the supply closet, but had been out cold during his trip to the lower levels.  If his nose was working properly he could have followed his own scent, but thanks to that dog-loving hunter everything smelled like his own blood.  The fox had vague ideas where the exits were located. The retreating clockworks metallic feet resounded down the halls and he was now trying to follow where he...

  The mobile cannon was left abandoned in the snowy ravine after it came to a dead end.  During the spring thaw this may have been a short waterfall, but it was an impassable cliff for the moment.

  The mess hall had been constructed with the proud Victorian sensibilities of the upper class.  There was a long table capable of seating seventy people and fine dishes were on display. Every kind of spoon, fork, and knife was available and separately designed for their own specific use.  There were over fifty different types of silverware and...

Aquila IX - Last Hopes
Posted by Beryl Strifeclaw on March 6, 2016 at 8:50am

  Doctor Dupyre applauded, impressed with the sudden turn of events.  “Well done Dr. Falcon!  Quite an ace hidden up your sleeve!”

   “You haven’t seen anything yet, Doctor!”  Avariel said as she turned back to face Mephistophicles.  The clockwork minotaur snorted at her simple but unexpected deceit.  His horns glowed a sickly green as her own gave off a...
