Back when Garrett was a boy, before the Trickster won, in the long hungry years of his life between his mother's death and the day he fell in with the Keepers, a man told him he'd been born to hang.
Let's get something straight before we begin: almost everything you have ever heard about the missing Count of Anvil is a lie. Most likely you believe I spent the final decade of the Third Era shacked up with a mistress and a litter of children wherever it is that faithless Colovian men go to hide from their heartbroken Colovian wives, but the truth is rarely that simple.
This story is the truth. Sort of.
'The next time he sees her it's different. In the deep crevice of a valley, they stumble along the track of cracked earth where a river once flowed, the air hot and dense and muggy. Overhead the unbroken thunderheads are sundered like torn curtains and the sun comes streaming though. It is the first true glimpse of the sun any of them have seen since they left their homes, and for a moment every one of them is struck blind, squinting in the molten light. When their vision clears, she's there, appearing this time not only to Hrol, but to everyone. They see her as she truly is, not a peasant marking her life in the cycles of the year, but as El-Estia, the slave queen, with the wound in her forehead spilling rubies into her right hand and serpents of dragonfire coiled around her left.'
The Remanada retold, but with slightly more sex and violence.

No one's too sure what counts as heresy these days. Six months have passed since the events at Soulforge Cathedral and the City is still recovering. Karras has left his mark, not only on the City's streets and sewers, but on Garrett too, and he's not the only one.
Robert Muldoon was lucky to survive the incident on Isla Nublar. Four years later, haunted by nightmares, he's drawn back to Costa Rica and to Site B. A reworking of The Lost World, asking what would have happened if Ian Malcolm had died in the first incident on Isla Nublar, and Robert Muldoon had survived, as in the book.
Season 01 "On the whole human beings want to be good, but not too good, and not quite all the time." - George Orwell
The fall of Harran robbed man of its humanity, and Zofia Sirota of her innocence. Finding redemption, with the city rotting away around her, seems to be a pipe dream at best, until a man falls from the skies and turns futility to hope. Either that, or he's about to make things a whole lot worse. COMPLETE
Season 02 Beaten by a ruthless storm and at the mercy of an uncaring outside world, Harran sits at the brink of a grim and unsteady future. But its heroes are far from done. Together they set out to search an abandoned shelter beneath the luxurious domes of Old Town, even as whispers herald a much greater threat than the remnants of Rais’ legacy. COMPLETE
Season 03 Hidden in the sprawling outskirts of the crumbling Harran metropolis, sits the key to a cure. Supposedly, anyway. Not like it matters, since Kyle Crane is done waiting for the outside world to fix this mess and hasn't ever shied away from trying his luck where there's often none to be found.
