The Plan

Submitted: December 20, 2017

The names are by no means set in stone. Rather than focusing on what these characters are called I was attracted to the way they talk to one another. Tool and Tull were the easiest to imagine,
since they were mostly based on a pair of actual twins at the school I work at. Auto is a weaselly looking fellow with a unique speech pattern to distinguish his voice from the rest. And Judd is
just a plain old beef-cake, and I love him like that. Luka and Boss are two characters I'm still trying to figure out. I can hear their voices in my head, but there are so many different places I
want to bring their characters during our story, so expect them to change a little as we go along. This is just a short conversation taking place right before the events of the first chapter. It is
more of an introduction to some of the characters than anything else, so I hope you enjoy.

The Master's House (part 1)

Submitted: December 21, 2017

This chapter will continue with our gang as they make their way to steal some treasure. I took some time to develop the setting a little more than I did in the prologue, giving the readers a better
grasp on what the Old World actually looked like. Don't fret! There will be more to come before I wrap up chapter one. Unfortunately, I can only write in short bursts since my schedule is very
busy, but this first chapter WILL continue into the house. You won't expect what Luka and Boss are about to discover inside this house, but it will change them forever.
