Cover: Old Wounds

In this corner… traitor to the Commonwealth, fugitive leader of the Halifax House syndicate, and most wanted man in all of Helm… RUFUS “THE RAVEN” HALIFAX… and his opponent, in the opposite corner, from parts unknown, master of multiple schools of the Arcanum, the most dangerous magick-maker in all the land, and rumored Great Wizard of the Modern Age… LUNA LUMERE!

… and here it is — the final page of Chapter 6: Old Ghosts. This was definitely the slowest paced chapter of the entire series but I think it was much needed to spend a little more time on the characters after the setting, characters, and story had been introduced.

I’ll be taking a break from posting next week, but will be back immediately after with the cover page of Chapter 7: Old Wounds. Say goodbye to the Homestead… we’re heading north.

Nothing like talking politics around the kitchen table, right?

Only 1 more page remains before Chapter 6 comes to an end. As always, thanks for reading. :)

Happy Thanksgiving to those of our readers in the US! :)

Just 2 more pages remain before Chapter 6 comes to a close. That’s 26 total pages (each chapter in in Book 1 was actually 25 pages)… which will also the be the case for all future chapters.

Hope you guys remember Carmichel… I just finished writing Chapter 7 a couple weeks ago (you can read the full script on Patreon if you’re inclined), and he’s fast becoming one of my favorite characters. You can read a little more about him and other key characters on the About page.

Whenever we get to doing a print version of Book 2, I’ll add Urkar’s Homestead to the map and also add that location to name to the setting caption on Page 135. Right now, it just says “Somewhere between Middlemarch and Farmeet.”
