    Summary

    Through the spite of the spirits or plain rotten chance, a door that would have been better left untouched has opened. On the other hand, with Fire and Earth as one's allies, sometimes escaping is the easy part.

     

    Even the Dragon-King's temple floods.

    Summary

    Three dark mage-kings known as the Sea Lords, the Orphaner and his two sons, hold the world in an iron grip. The reincarnation of an ancient hero known as the Sufferer leads a rebellion against their power. For all the blood and magic spilled, it seems the world will be at war forever.

    Rebel spymaster Sollux Captor is kidnapped by one of the Sea Lords to break a puzzling code. He's sure his fate is interrogation and death, or worse. But the lines between friend and foe are less clear than they seemed, and his captivity may have placed him in the perfect position to turn the tide.

    [inspired by the world of the 'Black Company' series by Glen Cook; you don't need to be familiar with it to understand this story.]

    Summary

    Fighting fire with fire is okay in theory but Detective-Summoner Dave L. Strider figures trying to summon corporeal demons to the mortal plane to fight other demons is likely to backfire spectacularly. Sadly for him his inner Knight gets the vapors at the thought of letting anyone else play guinea pig.

    Yup, he is totally hogging the demon. What could go wrong? (Oh no, Dave, why did you have to think that.)
