Renegade Project #28 End Game

You steady your aim and throw your knife. The man holding Selyna tries to duck, but the knife grazes his upper arm. He yelps and jerks back. His grip slackens on the knife at her throat. Drawing your sword, you charge. The man’s eyes widen and he struggles to keep the woman between you and […]

Renegade Project #27: Snipers

You lean near to the Prince and whisper, “If you have a nimble archer, now is the time to use him. Let’s talk with them, but I wouldn’t promise much and trust nothing.” The Prince nods. You turn back to Malor. “You must realize that releasing criminals is rather frowned upon. They only let me […]
