Meet Ves, AKA Reaper

Meet Ves, AKA Reaper

Our trip to England was a chance to meet some friends who had only been online acquaintances up until that point. Which turned out to be awesome, since they introduced us to their other geeky friends and even invited us to join their table top role playing group. While we were in England, the group …

A Fatal Flaw

I like to write stories for my friends. At the end of last year, I wrote a tribute for a friend who was grieving a lost pet. This story was written for a member of my regular RPG group (the one which spawns all my Dark Space stories). The incident it depicts happened near the …

12 Hours Before the End

“This isn’t goodbye.” Domerin couldn’t blame his daughter for her skeptical expression. She had taken one look at him when he said Hello, Sunshine, and her face had turned ashen pale. Her demand to know what was happening was a reasonable one, but the answer was complex and he had never been good with words, …
