      The numbness was strange, almost worrying. Fritz wailed over Tommy's chest. Mack felled a pine sapling with one stroke of his claymore, screaming out in rage. Cakes turned away, sank to his knees beside his nickelhorse, and wept into a snowbank....

        The note read: They ask me again? My daughter for armistice? A good ruler would surely accept this offer, but I don't suppose I can claim that distinction. Time and again, the Lady Temple advises that my decisions cannot affect what has been...

          "Chocolate," said Tommy. "Olive says we drink it like tea."Wanda sat on the edge of the canopy bed, her eyes half-closed and her head still a bit achy. Her brother had stoked and refueled the wood-stove, and the iron kettle of brown liquid he'd...

            Because she was walking within the Garrison walls, Wanda eventually came around again to her starting point. She met the Fellows standing guard by the staircase. No hopeful Haffaton men remained.Stacking with her uncroaked, she considered ascending...
            • Titan
              In the deep hours of the night, Wanda walked alone through the darkened halls of Kiloton's garrison. Her boots clumped softly on a checkerboard of black and white marble, and the footsteps went echoing away.Some of the men of Haffaton had tried to...

                The enemy warlord who spoke to Tommy was a sturdy man with a shaggy mane of brown hair and a robust beard to match. He was a Level 7 named Larry Ansell. He wore silver scale mail, and was wrapped up in a heavy cape of fiat panda fur. Like the rest...

                  "Well, how many times are we going to say that, Fritz?" Tommy asked in exasperation. "We both say 'it seems too good to be true' and 'I smell a trap,' and yet we just keep marching forward, same as we planned." "I know." The big red warlord had his...

                    Funnyface was out of move, but Goodminton had popped another sawhorse this turn, and completed popping a brontosword the turn before. She called her new mount "Uggymug," and rode it out of town, with the great lizardly monster flumphing along behind...

                      "As I have already Predicted, my Lord, Frenemy and Quisling won't maintain their alliance for many turns longer. Clay has noticed indications that they may already be working against us, and certainly they will break alliance and attack us at the...

                        After saying nothing at all in the hallway, Delphie entered Wanda's quarters as if the place were her own. She glided through the living area and disappeared into the bedroom. Wanda shut and locked the door, and followed."That one, as well, dear,"...

                          "Now here's an important thing, though," said Clay, pointing at the die. "Where did those 4s come from?"Wanda looked down at the little brown enchanted pyramid and shook her head. "From you. You cast upon the die."Clay grinned slyly. "So you're...

                            Wanda did not return to the city of Goodminton until she was eighteen turns old. She rode her familiar sawhorse, which she now called Funnyface, surrounded by a stack of uncroaked stabbers and one ghastly-looking knight on his last turn before...

                              The tent flap rustled, but did not open. “Wanda! Breakfast!”Wanda stirred in the wagon. “Yes, Chief. I‘m coming.”She‘d awakened when the bugle called start of day, but drifted back into a catnap. Nothing had...

                                Wanda rode a patient sawhorse on the road to Goodfinger. Tommy chose it for her, based upon its temperament. “You‘re not going to be much of a rider yet. That‘s okay.” She stacked with him, sticking close to the leathery...

                                  "Oh now!" said Delphie, sounding stung."It's not that bad, Father," said Tommy. "I think she opens up some new possibilities for us.""Exactly!" said Delphie. "As I Predicted, Lord, to be blessed with a third caster is a true turning point for...

                                    To Wanda‘s knowledge, Tommy had not ordered Lady Temple to accompany her to meet the Overlord. But Delphie gave no indication of needing such an order. She led the way up the main steps.Goodminton was a squat Level 4 citadel of barrel turrets...

                                      Goodminton‘s command structure seemed to draw a stark line between leadership and magical affairs. Chief Tommy actually felt it was more important for Wanda to meet her Chief Predictamancer, Delphie Temple, than to meet her Overlord (and...
