The Scrolls of Nek'rul [Scroll One, Chapter One]Flaring gold and crimson, the sun had crested over the ocean and was casting its brilliance over the azure waters and golden sands of the coast. Upon the shore and sitting upon the branches of the trees that lay on the coastline, a group of adventurers stood, watching the golden disc set until the stars blanketed the sky with their sparkling wonder. Each a different race, but bearing the same tabard over their armor, the group gazed intently on the horizon as if they were waiting for something.The Scrolls of Nek'rul [Scroll One, Chapter One] by maskedmage
There was Zuya, the forest elf and priestess of the Snow Leopard goddess Kiliana. Her bright green eyes shone in the light of the setting sun with a brilliance that rivaled the sun itself. Her chosen garb was a silver robe with white trim that was a size too big for her and was loose, covering her athletic curves. Her auburn hair was pulled back into a long ponytail that reached down to the small of her back and in her slender hands she held a long blue staff that held or
The Unknown Shadow Chapter 2As they escaped the city, night began to fall. The stars blinking to life as the blanket of ebony shrouded the sky and the moon let its silver glow caress the land gently. They had found themselves outside the city in the forest where the canopy allowed few streams of moonlight to pierce it.

"This is what you consider 'fun'?" Kid huffed back. "It's freezing cold out here, and now we have no place to stay. At least in the city I had an alley to crash in. But now we're out in the forest surrounded by who knows what."

In different portion of the city sat another young boy. Disliking the bright sheen and the freezing cold cast by the marble, he hid in a dark corner of a barely-used back alley. His clothes were rags, his dark hair was frizzy and a tad unkempt, and he paid little heed to the people walking by the alley's entrance.

A hawk curiously watched from atop the roof of a building, spying the young boy in the corner of the alley. With a mighty fla
