Thieves Vinegar

Thieves Vinegarby Kevin Andrew Murphy ... Chapter Four: The Hall of Whispers You might think that watching cultists devour a corpse would be the most horrible sight one could witness. ... You'd be wrong. ... The most horrible sight is watching those cultists throwing the corpse back up while a vampire vomits. This latter is particularly bad when you remember who the priestess seated me opposite. If I ever hear a bard say the words bathed in blood again, I swear I'll kick him. ... I wanted to...

PZO8500-RhodelsGhost

Thieves Vinegar

We were in the Gray District, the necropolis in the southeastern corner of Korvosa. More specifically, we were in Potter's Ward, the southeastern corner of that, used for the graves of the poor. The air was filled with greasy smoke. It smelled like someone was cooking rotting pork and it had caught fire. Except that in this case it was long pork. The only thing that smelled worse than the burning corpses were the ones that weren't yet burnt.

Newby analyzed the contents of Norret's flask, pronouncing it ninety-nine point nine percent pure will-o'-wisp essence, with the impurities mostly consisting of honeysuckle and grape. Norret nodded, and the three old men fell to talking amongst themselves.

"Observe, Orlin." Norret scooped a vial of purple cabbage water from the leaves I was blanching for the afternoon's meal. "Note how the introduction of even a weak acid transmutes the deepest amethyst to brilliant fuchsia...." He added a drop of vinegar and swirled it.

The Perfumer's Apprenticeby Kevin Andrew Murphy ... Chapter Four: The Scent of HoneysuckleThe hag or ogre wife or whatever she was stepped into the room, still looking like a sweet grandmother with her knitting bag and little spectacles. Then she saw the dead spider lying on the hearthrug. ... She screamed in horror, rushing over. “You fiendish little pig! What have you done?” She picked up the corpse. “My baby! My poor precious one! Speak to me!” ... Her knitting bag fell to the floor,...

Someone had picked my pocket during the night, so the gold Norret had given me was gone. All I had left was the little horn spoon. ... The innwife made it clear that if I bought breakfast or even ale, I could stay, but if not, I should go. I left, stepping out into the cold morning. ... Cries of “Gardyloo!” came from up and down the...

The Perfumer's Apprentice—Chapter Two: The Iris of Isarn

The Perfumer's Apprenticeby Kevin Andrew Murphy ... Chapter Two: The Iris of IsarnNorret had theories, but then my brother always had theories. It’s part of an alchemist’s job. He’d heard some story about assassins wanting to kill an ancient king, and rather than do something obvious like stab him, they got a girl and slowly fed her poison until she was immune but it oozed out her pores. The plan was that once the king made love to this girl, he’d die. ... It seemed rather unlikely to me,...

They don't know the half of it. ... I swore. ... None of that, Orlin, my brother corrected. We're in Isarn now. Remember your manners. ... But Norret! I pointed. Look! She's at it again! ... Indeed she was. One of the little bouquets from my tray had floated...

Pathfinder #7—Curse of the Crimson Throne Chapter 1:

Stop flyting, you two!

Stop flyting, you two! Friday, March 18, 2011 ... As you may recall, last month Pathfinder fiction author Kevin Andrew Murphy temporarily lost his mind and wrote us a full heroic crown of sonnets featuring 15 of our iconic characters, then sent it to us as a Valentine's Day present. We posted it on the blog, and folks seemed to enjoy it. Perhaps too much. ... Never one to back away from a challenge, Kevin has now written another poem dealing with the Pathfinder iconics and posted it on the...

Iconic Love—The Fifteen Loves of Golarion

Iconic Love Monday, February 14, 2011For some of us, Valentine's Day is just another day. We go to work, come home, maybe hang out with our significant others a bit or send the kids off to the sitter for a rare night out. For other people, however, Valentine's Day carries more significance, and flat-out demands acknowledgement. They see it as an excuse to truly cut loose, to go all-out with the romance and treat it like a real holiday. ... And then, apparently, there's a third type of person:...
