Feral hunting instincts shrieked against the blanketing dark that hid her prey from her inadequate human senses. Then rational thought warred with instinctual response and she welcomed the relief brought by the thick blackness. She was as invisible to him as he was to her. But not for long. Never fo...

The big cat screamed a high-pitched woman's scream as she felt the enchanted dagger rip at her human soul, wrenching the druid half out of her animal form. With a sob she screamed again, but this time her voice formed words, ragged and pain-filled but powerful, one hand coming up to grip the holy sy...

Pidibeple, Llorin, Emices, Pragmar, Lopi, Kerishai, Timok and I did quite well in MD, leaving a trail of corpses that was remarkably pc corpse-free (almost).
