Fringe Elements #5: Winter’s Warning

An announcement before we dive into the episode proper–some of you may remember a little endeavor of mine called Loremageddon. I’m ditching the pretensions to it having anything to do with NaNoWriMo, but otherwise? That sucker’s making a comeback this month of November! There are huge portions of the broader Twin Spirals cosmology–not to mention […]

Fringe Elements # 4: Strange Tides

Cadence led the way into a coral ravine. Thlib grunted, wriggling his torso to squeeze through a tight spot, and threw a rock at them.

Or… or, it might be a chance for some real work. “Appy,” they said aloud, “would you […]

Fringe Elements #1: Three’s a Crowd

Three figures trod across a soggy plain, disparate feet displacing pale bluish sand. On every side they faced tidal pools filled by iridescent fish and crustaceans–often nestled in crevices and bowls formed by the lowest spurs of peculiar half-circle rock formations in dark reds and oranges. Fewer but much larger formations created ridges and causeways […]
