A land forged from the fires of strife, blood of heroes, and touch of the gods.
Where deeds of great valor, vile evils, and blazing passions intertwine
to shape the course of elven and human history within.

Looking into the Future

Something a bit different, as I'm not one for idle chatter...

Here's a bit I wrote probably two years ago, that will eventually find it's way into Book Six (yes, that's two books down the line).  I thought I'd post it just to see what the reaction is.

The blade was but a shape, no edge upon it, no hilt to grasp, no crossguard to keep an enemy’s blows from one’s own hands. A deep groove ran its length upon both sides, to lighten its massiveness, for surely this would become a sword fit for a warrior of renown. The NorthWind rune gazed with malevolence into the world, as seeking its quarry, hunting its blood.
And though it was unfinished, there was something Kaul could sense; a hunger deep within the darkly gleaming steel, and a whisper of a name he could only guess the meaning of.

I love to write little bits like this, that end up having so much bearing on the story later.

What ever will he do with such an unfinshed thing as that?
