What happens when HiveGod & Gola conspire to adventure?

Blood. Insanity. And steamy-hot dwarf-on-human action.

BEHOLD THE TERRIBLE POWER OF 11

In other words, intricately described scenes of ultraviolence, raunchy dwarf-on-gypsy sport porking, seven curses, shadows only the dead can see, flying machines, the Womb Ouroboros, and gallon jars of red-hot eleven.

Thanks for the zany, HG.

Like the yin slotting wetly into the yang, I am nothing without inspiration. Thanks to you for bringing it and providing ever-higher hurdles to catch my foot on.

Of course no man can complain on his own behalf when the craven & cowardly dice gods turn on him--live by the die, sored by the die, I believe they say--but bystanders have no honor to lose, so: "Wow, those were some bullshit rolls at the end there, man. Those dice hated you."

A dwarf prince gathers his cohort in his great halls; to the unfamiliar it sounds as the din of battle--but it is only drinking and feasting, with a little bit of punching.

Wait a minute, was this dwarf prince unusually tall for a dwarf, and did the color of his beard bring to mind the wings of the greater blood eagle in the dawning sun? And has not the same been said of the auburn hair of the gypsies of this land?

Should we have a "I rolled crappy against the titan" contest? Because mine were (unmodified) 3-1-8-6. Almost as bad as Understone's 1-3-7-6.

I think the Titan cheats.

The only consolation was that it didn't make a damned bit of difference that I forgot to aim for the left hand.

I lost to that frakkin' titan, too.

But I just needed one more pip. Stupid 17.

Everything is peeling back—the wings, your eyelids, sheets of decayed time flaying off around you. You crawl from your mother's womb, naked and bawling, but full grown, where you take up the sword, or at least the threat of it; the old man you cut down in a midnight burglary—yourself, aged, decrepit, and strangely unresisting. The cycle repeats, you are somehow complicit in the gravidity of your mother, your birth, your death. The Wheel turns with anentropic velocity—inseminate, gestate, profligate—in and out of the loop with a wobble, exiting the womb now sword-first into the old man's throat, then a baby-bullet, catching the old man and smearing his spray on the maternal walls on your way through and back out again, the flash of light to dark streaking into an electric grey hum—

—this is the uroboric vortex of your life spun free of cause and effect, the vortex that catches you and twists your own arm off at the controls.


Some of the best fantasy writing I've come across in a long, long time. Will you write my eulogy when I am dead and gone?
