A Break by the Lake

Four foresters flushed and happy from the exertions of the last hunt rest their tired selves next to a crackling campfire, overlooking the still blue waters of the placid lake.

A Merry Hunt

The foresters traveled through the woods, hunting for deer. In the peaceful shade of the red oak and yellow poplar, the creek bubbled and trickled along its merry way. The foresters hadn't seen a deer in over three days, but they kept optimistic, with their classic smile firmly placed on their faces.

A Snowy Escape

Part 1. As I continued on my journey through the forest, I was shocked to see a band of brigands guarding the road ahead. I quickly realized my only escape from this perilous situation was to dash into the woods and attempt to lose the pursuing outlaws in the thick forest.

Part 2.
Unfortunately for me the thick forest soon turned into a open plain, and I could hear the rogues gaining on me with every step. Just then the ground beneath me heaved and groaned like some huge beast that had been awakened! I realized I was running atop a pond, and the ice was cracking beneath me! As I skidded my way across the ice, I heard a tremendous splashing and glanced back to see the outlaws toppling through the ice straight into the water.

Part 3.
I eased my pace as the cries and roars of my late pursuers died behind me, but on the path ahead marched some of the King's knights, and they inquired if I had seen a band of outlaws that had been causing trouble. I told them... If you hurry, you can save them from drowning in yonder pond, for they have been chasing me for the last mile of my journey. The knights with hurried thanks rushed towards the pond I had indicated. I continued on my way with a broad smile upon my face.
The End.

Avalanche at Deadman's Gorge

Three merchants by the names of Laurence, Watkins, and Ellerbee, were traveling to the city of Lyme by way of the high road. However, when stopping at a local inn, they were informed that a hostile army had camped on the road ahead. Dismayed by this information they inquired if any other route was to be taken on the way to Lyme. After hearing several different and ridiculous options, and consulting their map, they decided to take the trail through Deadman's Gorge... They later regretted their ill-Advised journey.

Caught in the Crossfire

Laurence, Watkins, and Ellerbee were just barely able to survive their trip through Deadman's Gorge. But, to add to their miseries, no sooner had they exited the wood they found themselves in the center of a impending battle, of the very armies they sought to avoid in the first place! Surely, there was never such an Ill-advised journey to be seen.

Escaping from Africa

Part 1.
I sailed out from Genoa with a feeling I would have some adventure and excitement on my voyage to the Levant; little did I know the vessel in which I was traveling would be attacked and destroyed by a fleet of Moorish pirates! I would have most certainly have drowned like my poor companions, but I just managed to climb aboard some wreckage. I stood up and looked about to find out where I was... That was my big mistake. A pirate vessel that had obviously arrived too late to help its allies, came up to where I was floating, and then one of the crew yelled in their coarse language, "Aha! By the beard of Allah, we are too late to fight, but look! Here is a wealthy Frankish merchant judging by his fancy garments! We can secure a large ransom for his safe return!" The rest of the ruffians grunted their approval of this awful scheme. It was then that I wished I had not worn my best suitů

Part 2.
After three days of sailing In the hands of the Moorish pirates, I arrived on the coast of what must be Africa, however, I didn't get a long look at the place for I was swiftly thrown into a small building with barred windows.
I immediately began thinking of a way to escape. So a few days later, at the time I expected my guard to enter, I placed myself next to the window and pressed my face against the bars. When the guard came in I exclaimed, "Who is that damsel there? She is very beautiful, and she passes here frequently."
The guard jumped to the window and looked out, As he did so, I slipped his dagger out of his sheath and hid it in my trousers, meanwhile I said, "Do you see her just going around the corner there? Ah! She is gone..." The guard stepped back and grunted, "I never get to see any beautiful damsels about in this wretched place!" He then lurched out of the room, but not without carefully locking the door behind him. Unfortunately for the pirates, I now had the means of unlocking that door...

Part 3.
The lock to my cell door easily gave way, it being so old and little used. As soon as I stepped out into the street I realized my uncomfortable position, here I was stranded without a penny in a pirate-held town in deepest Africa. I figured the best way out of this scrape was to steal a boat and make for the sea, I found three small fishing boats and the pirate vessel that brought me here. I sneaked onto the pirate vessel and found that it was filled with provisions ready for departure, so I raised anchor and sailed boldly out of the bay just as the sun came over the horizon. I praised the saints for my good luck and set my course for home! I can't wait to see the look on my friends' faces when I sail into Genoa as the captain of a Moorish galley..."
The End

Falworth Keep Revisited

Falworth Keep, a castle perched on the cliff of the western shore of the Lion Kingdom.

Far below the castle, the cliffs are wet from the swells of the sea, which dashes upon the rocks in foaming waves.

Surrounding the castle proper are thick woods, in which abound foresters of the band of Will o' th' Black. They are a scourge to the neighborhood - The castle garrison are kept busy scouring the countryside in search of them. But the peaceful inhabitants of the castle believe the band would never dare to attack the Keep itself.

Little do the occupants of the castle realize that... the rogues are climbing the keep wall this very moment! And the band of Will O' th' black may well take the Keep!

Stopping for the night

As I stumbled along the trail that led through the frozen forest, I realized it would soon be dark and I would need a fire if I was to survive. I managed to find a dead, dry tree. I cut this down with my sword. Soon, I had a small fire before my feet. The wind continued to whip by, and It looked like it was going to be a long, cold chilly night... I hoped there were no wolves.

The Battle of Dreadmoor

The Crusading army was a shadow of it's former glory, They wearily hoped to strike one more blow to the fiendish Outlaws before retreating, the losses were only growing daily. Some deserted, but even more were cut off and killed by the rebels that surrounded them. But today things were different, the tropical glades around them were silent. The men grew nervous. Then they heard it, like the sound of thunder, but it didn't cease, then they saw the rapidly approaching enemy. The crusaders hurriedly strung their bows and buckled on armor, for the battle was about to begin!

The building was erected by a benevolent Lord for whom it was named, and has been a haven of knowledge and learning ever since, in the midst of the raw feudalism of the province of Loreos.
