First though she wanted to say how grateful she was for the earlier assistance, pretty much the same as everyone else had been doing, and without much more of a preamble she got down to business and introduced the group to another of the local goblin hunters. The terse white-haired ranger Shalen explained that a separate force of goblins had been active during the attack, unearthing a priest that had died some time ago. This information had been extracted from a captured goblin, who said that the three tribes had been united and given these orders by a strange human. The job? To stick around the city for a few days while the Sheriff visits Magnimar for more soldiers in case this mysterious human has plans to attack the city again with a goblin army. The group will be given free rooms for their stay and possibly rewarded further if all goes well.
A few days went by without incident, and already even wanderlust travelers like VV and Aishe were starting to settle in to this position as to
Me - Evil and Hope
Like many people, I have wondered at times in my life if humans are all evil, or at least more evil than they are willing to admit. It would be a somewhat naive view if that was the extent of it, same as believing everyone is good, so I started out small making simple observations about how people act. I noted that people lie, telling children that Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny are real. More importantly, those lies are seen as good and sweet, and those children are supposed to tell the same lies to their children one day. I noted that people are generally hypocrites, we tend to subconsciously realize our own flaws thus making it easier to see and point them out in others. Said another way, we see flaws in others and point them out but we often have those same flaws ourselves, the classic definition of a hypocrite. I kept on noting these aspects to humanity and became a bit distant from people because of it, I decided that what I really wanted in life was to be inhuman when I couldn

Trying to lighten the mood, the barkeep challenged his patrons to try taking a drink from a large fishtank behind the bar, full of water so polluted that the large hagfish inside from which the bar took its name could barely be seen. Yoo of course tried first, taking it as a challenge to his manhood, and with only a single chug threw up across the floor. The paladin went next to test her mettle but spewed it back up as fast as Yoo had, the archer even gave it a go and managed to get his portion halfway down before it all came up again. Aishe threw up just from the sight of them all retching. How did the fish survive, someone wondered aloud? The barkeep grinned, saying this wasn't the first hagfish he had kept in this tank.
Later, with the paladin helping VV carry the sleepy Aishe, the group traveled on to the Rusty Dragon. In the front lobby they found the noble from before, who offered them all fifty gold each and free rooms for the night. Only after again giving his thanks did he int
Character - Minion Theatre
"MINION RABBIT!" The shout comes from the center of the noisy room, a bellow Dwight is still learning to cringe at correctly when he is the target of its wrath. "WHY ARE THE AFT ENGINES NOT RESPONDING?" The bunny-ears-wearing shoutee huddles in his seat in something approaching said mandatory cringe as his fellow minions lean away from him carefully and the lion-masked shouter glowers from his grand throne.
"Sir, the controls are unresponsive, sir!" Dwight's seat, a green lawn chair with a broken back slat, wobbles as he tries to keep his uncomfortable position. "I'm not sure any of the buttons even do anything, I hit the blue one when you say to but it's not like ."
"Minion, are you implying this is my fault?" The minions closest to Dwight get up slowly and back away, mumbling under their breath about regulation bathroom breaks. "Or that there is something wrong with my Ark? OR ARE YOU SIMPLY A FOOL!?" The man on the throne stands abruptly, pointing a clawed hand at Dwight.

A yell came from around the corner in a small alleyway, shouting for aid; the orc on the rooftop leaped off in another direction as the combatants ran to help. Coming to a stop at the edge of the confining space they saw a large goblin riding a shaggy creature and menacing a scared nobleman and his dog. The goblin leaped from its mount and slew the hound in one slash of its hefty sword, prompting several other smaller goblins to come out from their hiding place behind a pile of barrels.
Balthazar hissed a spell, causing slithering vines to grow from the earth at the feet of the goblins and entangle them while his constrictor moved in and joined the vines, surprising the lead goblin. The half-elf archer, the paladin with a circular metal disc and VV with another bolt all attempted to take down the leader, but their attacks only grazed the cagey goblin. Yoo took a different tack, drawing his sword and waving it threateningly in front of the leader's mount to cow it into submission, while
Practice - Scene Setting
His was the kitchen counter of desk spaces, clean of visible detritus but with many things slowly rotting in the outboxes. Its emptiness resembled a silent street, urchin-like assignments hovering in the shadows and he before them, a lax truent officer with a heart of gold. The pictures tacked to the wall were windows into another life, one of happy families and memorable barbecues, the scent of pine and coals almost floating from them. Instead of a faint grin, a shadow crept across his double chin, and not of the kind removed easily by the cordless trimmer kept in the front drawer. There was work to be done, a new project the likes of which few before had seen and none yet survived, no time to lose reminiscing!
I never thought I'd see a carnival that didn't look happy from far away, but this one redefined the concept. Driving up it had the cheer and bright lights of most modern fairs of its caliber, one gleaming ferris wheel dominating the park and a horde of small booths crowded arou
Page 5 - Wrestling
Outside the wagon Balthazar was indulging in his own favorite pastime, trying to interest others in brawling for coin. He drew a large circle in the dirt and began calling out in his hissing voice to passersby, challenging them one and all to wrestle him. And soon enough one did accept, a large man shaped like a professional dockworker, moving forward to stand hulking over the smiling half-orc. Both showed the silver coin they were betting, and as the two pieces dropped to the dirt the fight was on. The large man squatted down in an accepted wrestling stance as Balthazar slithered up to and around him, clamping down with his vice-like hands on the man's appendages. Without mercy the half-orc began pulling and shoving at the human's limbs, as if trying to rearrange the loudly complaining man's bone structure through brute force, saying only that this was his style of "wrestling." Before the human could think of counterattacking he fell to the ground, now unconscious from the pain of his
Character - Serial Killer
"Oh and did you hear about that string of killings?" Father freezes at Mother's off-handed comment, mid-way to sitting in his chair at the head of the table. "The newspapers are all talking about it, they've been happening for a while now but it seems that they only just yesterday could start talking about them." Father sits with a loud squeak from the old and creaky chair, his face carefully neutral. Baby in his high chair giggles cheerfully and waves the red rattle menacingly.
"I guess I didn't, I wasn't able to read the paper this morning. Just too tired, I guess." Mother turns from chopping up the lettuce for dinner's salad, pouting just a little.
"You didn't hear anything from Nosy at work today? He's always gossiping with you about the latest news, I was just dying to hear the latest juicy tidbits!" Her hand holding the heavy cleaver drops suddenly, slicing a head of cabbage in half with a slick and satisfying sound. She turns back, sighing with plain regret. "It's because you're

Festivals are always a good way to ply the fortune-teller's trade. When Aishe heard of the coming dedication ceremony in Sandpoint, for a new church built after the old chapel had burned to the ground, she had immediately set to convincing the group to head there. And so it was that on a bright and sunny morning they rolled into town, setting up shop in the main square and soon attracting a large crowd of nosy residents. Just the way Aishe liked it.
Their first "client" was the richest-looking man Aishe could spot in the crowd, she brought him forth by pointing and saying she felt strong psychic vibrations coming from him. VV kept back behind a small curtain as Aishe brought the man into the small wagon, the usual practice so that she could use her magic to fool their "clients" into believing the tall tales told by Aishe. Yoo stayed outside to keep the crowd interested while Balthazar kept close in case things went south.
Predictably, the wealthy nobleman was worried about who he could

Encore - Chapter 22(Scene: the next day. TAYLOR is driving a car along the highway, and KATHARINE, ELLIOT and CHRIS are also inside. When we see them, they are laughing at something someone just said.)
TAYLOR: (As they pull themselves together) Oh, Katharine, I am gonna miss your jokes.
ELLIOT: Who knows, maybe this time next year we'll be hearing her deliver them on TV.
CHRIS: I don't know, she strikes me as more of a drama type. What do you think, Katharine?
KATHARINE: Actually, I do need to tell you what I'm thinking before we get to the airport. (Looks over at TAYLOR) If it's okay with you guys...if none of these auditions work out, or after I'm done with my next project, whatever that is...I'd like to pitch our story to a director.
TAYLOR: What, you mean the story of the Brittenum case?
KATHARINE: Yeah. I'd have to ask the others for their permission, and I'd make sure it stayed as true to the real events as possible, but this is such an unusual case, I thought it might
Encore - Chapter 21(Scene: a week later. A large crowd has gathered in the courtyard at the First Baptist Church of Encore. The sun is out, with not a cloud in the sky. Children are running around, playing games and passing balls. A few people tend grills full of hamburgers and hot dogs, while others distribute water, soda, chips, watermelon and ice cream novelties. We see all of the main characters there, interacting with family, friends and strangers, except for TAYLOR. A DJ is playing music.)
KATHARINE: (Talking to MELISSA and some other women) So yeah, I'm flying back to L.A. tomorrow. But I might bring everyone here for Christmas. Of course, if I get that record deal I'm going for, I might be busy recording a Christmas album.
(The women are impressed. MELISSA looks over, sees someone and goes over to them. In the background, KATHARINE recognizes the song as "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" and smiles.)

KELLIE: This is taking forever. Do all trials last this long?
TAYLOR: This is actually pretty short for a trial. It's not like on TV, where they solve the whole thing in a day. Some can go on for months.
PARIS: I don't get why they take so long. It's been three weeks since they brought Will to trial.
ELLIOT: And it took them a week to convict him. They've only spent five days on Brittenum so far. I have a feeling we'll get the news today.
KATHARINE: I sure hope so. One more day in here and I'll go crazy.
CHRIS: I'm gonna make a run to McDonald's. Anybody want anything?
