Kings in Disguise
Virgil noticed the apparent half-ogre still standing cap in hand and waiting for the madame. He paused
a moment; trying not to stare at the fellow customer. Something about this one. Virgil waited by the
kitchen, trying to look inconspicuous as the half-ogre spoke to the formidable Madame Lil.

The Last Amateur
Years later, settled in a vicarage outside of Caladon, Perriman Smythe would reminisce to his children
about the days he followed Malan Wetherby and his company of adventurers. Not for money, not for glory
and definitely not for Tarant. Malan was a remarkable man. Last of the warrior mages, I should
think. But the time I most remember was the day we finally defeated the Lord of the Damned.
