Misery's Mirror—Chapter Four: The Burdens of History

Misery's Mirrorby Liane Merciel ... Chapter Four: The Burdens of HistoryThey left the midnight mirror without speaking. ... Once on the other side, safely back in the Cathedral of Bones, Isiem snatched up the fallen shroud of silk and swept it back over the glass. Then he sat heavily on the bed, shuddering, as Ascaros sank to the floor beside him. ... You can't go back, Isiem said. ... Ascaros did not reply. He laid his staff across his lap, thumbing its silver adornments over and over in...

Misery's Mirror—Chapter Three: Silence

Misery's Mirrorby Liane Merciel ... Chapter Three: SilenceWhat would spur someone to kill her? Isiem wondered aloud as they left the dead shadowcaller on her bier. Not rebellion, surely. In Westcrown, perhaps, but not Nisroch. ... The mirror, Ascaros answered. He swept up the stairs from the chamber of the dead to their temporary quarters, where the Over-Diocesan's lackeys were to have delivered Misanthe's belongings. Blue-flamed candles in sconces of bone flickered as he went past. Of course...

Misery's Mirror—Chapter Two: Hovels

Misery's Mirrorby Liane Merciel ... Chapter Two: HovelsThe Hovels lived up to their name. ... The poorest and most wretched of Nisroch's people did not live in the city. They huddled outside its walls, clustered in a miserable, mud-drenched shantytown by the Leper's Gate. There was little stable ground to support them, so the denizens of the Hovels built high and dense, creating a teetering warren of sticks that seemed a sneeze away from collapse at any moment. ... Swaths of sucking mud...

Misery's Mirror—Chapter One: A Death in Nisroch

Misery's Mirrorby Liane Merciel ... Chapter One: A Death in NisrochI need a favor, Ascaros whispered, stopping before Isiem's library table. ... Of course you do, Isiem murmured back, unsurprised. He did not lift his head from the scroll he was copying. ... Once, he and Ascaros had been friends. As children in the village of Crosspine, they had been almost brothers. That friendship had survived the early years of their tutelage in the Dusk Hall of Pangolais... but only the early years. The...

Nightglass Sample Chapter—Chapter Thirteen: Reprisals

Nightglass Sample Chapter Wednesday, June 27, 2012by Liane Merciel ... In Nightglass, a young boy in the shadowy nation of Nidal is taken from his home and trained by the sadistic magical academy known as the Dusk Hall, transformed into a living weapon in the service of the dark god Zon-Kuthon. Many years later, now grown to manhood, Isiem is sent to Cheliax to help put down a rebellion by the winged, inhuman strix. Yet as he conducts his grisly work, Isiem begins to question his life under...

Certainty—Chapter Four: The Stone

Certaintyby Liane Merciel ... Chapter Four: The StoneJelani, Adrun, with me, I said. The rest of you, keep going. Whatever the scout had found had terrified the man, and I didn't want his panic spreading to the others. ... Found tracks, the scout said when we were out of the others' earshot. Followed them. He thrust a hand forward, jerkily, as if to hurl the memory away. ... I was about to ask how he had spotted tracks on the tundra when I saw them myself: a line of booted prints sunk deep...

Certainty—Chapter Three: Justice

Certaintyby Liane Merciel ... Chapter Three: JusticeThe first of the Burner's prisoners was a pregnant woman, though I would have thought her long past her childbearing years. She wasn't a day under fifty, and might easily have been ten years older. ... Those years were heavy on her, and the short, dirty shift she wore did nothing to conceal them. Her shoulders were soft and spotted brown; her legs were puffed and lumpy as badly kneaded dough. The weight of a lifetime's grief dragged down her...

Certainty—Chapter Two: Valas’s Gift

Certaintyby Liane Merciel ... Chapter Two: Valas’s GiftA grim silence settled over the recruits after that welcome. When another soldier came to lead them to the armory, they followed quietly, their heads lowered like those of condemned men marching to the gallows. ... I rose to go with them, but the scarred soldier waved me down. After the others had gone, and the banners on the walls had stopped flapping in their wake, he leaned back, watching me. Do you know why they have me greet the new...

New Pathfinder Web Fiction!

New Pathfinder Web Fiction! Wednesday, August 18, 2010If you're reading this blog on paizo.com, rather than aggregating through some sort of high-tech feed to your personal mobile command unit, or beaming it directly to your personal communications satellite—as one of the last Paizonians without a smart phone, I really have no idea what such things are capable of these days—it's likely you've already seen the little tab just above this that says Web Fiction.

Certainty—Chapter One: The Crusade

Certaintyby Liane Merciel ... Chapter One: The CrusadeThere aren't many old paladins. ... Mostly we die. Spend year after year fighting everything from boggards to balors, and sooner or later one of them will take off your head. Or you succumb to rice-water fever while wandering in the bowels of a festering swamp. Or that smiling innkeeper with the dirty jokes turns out to be a secret cultist of Norgorber and slits your throat while you snore. ... Few of us last ten years. ... We don't all...
