Quick Note - The Miracle of Science

Now that "Joy in a Flask" is done and only waiting on the final cover piece I started up work again on my next X-plorers adventure "The Miracle of Science". I hope to have this one done within the week (possible done text by this weekend). Then comes the editing, the layout and finding a few art types for the cover and an interior piece or two (unless I can find some suitable stock art). Actually, I already commissioned a great piece by the wonderful +Theo Evans for the adventures and I expect (like all his work) it will be beautiful!

But, here is a taste of what to expect:

The faint, almost non-existent light of the near-by dead star creates unnatural, shifting shadows  that  obscure the design and layout of the facility. Ship sensors will pick-up several (6) smaller floating bodies in obit around the asteroid. Visual observation or a detailed scan (Nav Check 15-19 or higher) will reveal the objects to be corpses in EVO suits. If the check is 20 or higher the scanners will identity that all 6 objects are alive for 60 seconds before registering as dead once more.

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.

The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
