    Summary

    Valtieri made her but Jauffre defined her. The old blademaster gave her purpose and Martin protected her. The small folk believed in a Champion, but they never knew she had been a monster. Sodrusu lives a life of prayer and penitence now, suffering in silence in the long months after the emperor's death. She has learned of a plot against her, a plot by the new blademaster to hide the hideous truth once and for all, and she takes to a small chapel to ask Talos for aid.

    There she learns that when you invite the gods on a night that rains, there is only one god who answers... and He has quite the proposition.

    Summary

    The small folk knew her as the Hero of Kvatch, the Champion of Cyrodiil, and a friend to the emperor. Few know the truth of the monster she had been, the Dark Brotherhood initiate, the vampire. Sodrusu has sworn her life in service of the Nine and left behind her assassin's shroud for a monk's robes. Martin believed in her, but Martin is gone. Unfortunate political realities intrude. A new Grandmaster has seized control of the Blades, and Jauffre may no longer be able to protect her. A meeting with the intolerant new Knight-Commander of the Nine doesn't go as hoped, and Sodrusu learns of a new danger.

    Summary

    He was the conqueror of 86 tribes, the Son of Mars, chosen by the gods to lead man out of the ashes of the Old World.

    As the numbers swelled beneath the banners of the Legion, Caesar ordered the killing of his inner circle, men he could no longer trust, not with command, not with his old name or the true history he perverted.

    Now he stands in the lengthening shadow of the Monster of the East, the Legate Lanius, who never read of Julius or Augustus in the old books, who never had any use for the written word at all. The Butcher's vision of the future is a grim hell he does not recognize, but Caesar has left no one alive that remembers another time.. or their original purpose.

    Now his strength fails him and he needs an heir to restore the Legion's glory. The gods fail to grant him a child, and the sky burns with signs and portents. Fortuna gives her Wheel a spin, and only the Khan god Coyote knows where it lands. The remnants of the Enclave offer up an unlikely alliance, and the sibyl shrieks of the coming of the God of War, who walks the desert in the form of a First Recon man.

    Only Vulpes Inculta is clever enough to find a way out, but the secrets he discovers could take a man's soul.

    Summary

    The courier was a good man, inoffensive, who limped and shuffled from town to town, drawing letters or packages out of his long pockets, bringing well-wishes and gifts, news and postcards. He shook hands, kissed babies, and told wild stories about places he'd been to. It was easy to travel with him, an easy pace, sleeping under the stars or eating hot plates on kindly strangers' porches. He always said softly he didn't want trouble. He never wanted any trouble. At first they all figured him for a kindly older gentleman, some poor cripple who might have been a veteran.

    But when the gang recovers two stealth devices from the nightkin, the courier cooks up one wild scheme after another to rescue NCR soldiers and bring justice to Vegas fiends. What started as running deliveries soon spirals into bounty hunting, with a mix of superior technology and ideas crazy enough to work. Boone goes from the bodyguard of a rag-tag wandering outfit to a wasteland enforcer, losing his grip on reality under the influence of the Stealth Boy, and troubled by nightmares of the dead, the courier must confront at last the secrets of his past.
