Vision of Fire

The Present, in a field outside the city of Kamar

Siron: My name is Siron. I am a young bard, who walks from kingdom to kingdom looking to earn a good buck. You might be wondering why I even do that. Well it's kind of hard to explain. Things happened...


The Past, after a war in the kingdom of Jora.

Imperial Soldier: *runs towards his general* Sir.
???: What news do you bring me.
Imperial Soldier: Some of the folks in this town had fled. We fear that may be headed to Graia.
???: *sheaths sword after stabbing a helpless individual crawling on the ground* Deploy the airships. Kill as many as you see running towards Kamar.
Imperial Soldier: Yes General Kudlov.
Kudlov: *takes cigar from his pocket and lights it up* You are... the first... but not the last. *throws cigar down onto gunpowder laying on the dirt, catching the place on fire instantly.

Kudlov; A very tall slender man with white long flowing white hair and an eye patch. He is the general of King Machiron's royal army. He is cold and heartless and will do anything for power and control. As for those who defy his orders, they leave this world by his hands. He has taken many innocent lives, yet shows no remorse. Some call him the devil himself... that is before he kills them.


The Present, in a field outside the city of Kamar

Gali: Wake up sleepy head! *laughs*
Siron: *screams* Stop scaring me like that.
Gali: *frowns* I'm not that ugly am I.
Siron: Wha-what... no I didn't mean it like that...
Gali: *laughs* Don't worry silly. I was joking.
Siron: *frowns*
Gali: Hey I was just joking. Lighten up Siron.
Siron: I know.
Gali: Listen. I know what you are thinking and it's not your fault. You couldn't do anything about it.
Siron: It's not that...
Gali: Oh? Well what is it?
Siron: I had another one of those dreams.
Gali: The one about the sky?
Siron: Yeah. Does it mean something? I can't wrap my memories around it.
Gali: Hey don't think about it too much. Look, *points at the city of Kamar* we just have to head there and find a good paying job. Try to think of that instead.
Siron: Your right. *smells food* Are you making something?
Gali: Yep! Better come get some before I eat it all. *laughs*
Siron: *laughs* No you don't. *races over to the food that Gali prepared*

Siron and Gali eat their food and prepare themselves to go to the city of Kamar.

nirrmitshah: A truely touching story where you'd be at the edge of your seat for the most time. even though the starting might seem rushed, the story was extremely interesting and entertaining.

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Lauren Sanby: This is an excellent story. Very gripping and keeps your attention throughout. Hoping the author is writing a sequel because I'd love to read more about Rhi and Andreas and find out what else Rhi is able to do with her powers.

ArgyrisMetaxas: Thrilling story which builds layer ontop of layer. A few mis spellings every few chapters.What I found special was that it took a modern day problem and took it to its logical conclusion and plays this realism with gritting precision. I'm always on edge ready to shout from adrenaline. This is gre...

Dru83: This is the second or third time I've read this one and I just love it. It has just about everything you could ever want packed into one scifi story.

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone.
