    Summary

    A decade after fleeing the Empire, Shadowhand Caleb of Den Thelyss has positioned himself within the centre of Kryn Dynasty politics as trusted advisor to the Bright Queen, due to his pursuit of the lost Beacon that awoke him from madness so many years ago. However, his recovery mission is cut short by a ragtag group of adventurers arriving in the Queen's Court, led by a familiar drow and bearing the very Beacon that he's spent his new life searching for.

    OR: A role-reversal AU with Caleb as Shadowhand and Essek as an adventuring wizard whose past threatens his every move.

    This was interesting! I like the writing style but I have to say: I expected tl be more to it. I understand there's so much you can do but although it's good, the "ending" left me with not as much satisfaction as I hoped. I'd not say no to a 2nd part of this

    Summary

    Essek knows about soulmates and soulmarks. He knows they can be platonic and/or romantic.

    But he never knew that he could have one.

    Or more than that.

    Eight people who call themselves Nein are going to change that.

    Summary

    A human was squaring off against two Aeorian beasts, and he was doing surprisingly well, all things considered.

    At first, Verin thought that he was a mage, as the man cast a decent bit of fairly powerful looking magic at the creatures. However, as the strange, catlike monsters took the magical hit, a blast of similar energy shot back out of them, towards the man, who only barely dodged out of the way.

    With a strained huff, he shook his arms, causing the maze of black tattoos along his forearms to glow, and he began to move much faster. More magic then. What was strange though, was that he also pulled out a sword.
