Journal #1; Runed Rogue

The 1st Journal of Lance Underwood

I’m Lance Hawthorn Underwood. I’ve killed monsters, both human and inhuman. I’ve stolen their powers and used them for my own. Turning my enemies weapons against them is how I plan to keep myself and those close to me alive.

I do not know if anyone else will ever read this journal. This recount of my first few weeks may end up lost in the wilds or used for fireplace fodder. Maybe the powers which kidnapped us will declare their game over and kill us all. Still, I’ll leave my story behind and only pray this book helps others survive.

Jesus was quoted as saying “live by the sword, die by the sword.” Does the idea of do unto others apply in this new world too? Am I, are we, doomed? There are cockroach-like mini-orcs, slovenly giants, hoarding hydras, and humans with their own assorted powers. Survival seems impossible.

God help us all, if there is one.

"There was a weight in the early autumn air. Though they were both persistent in their presence, it was neither the oppressive heat nor the dense humidity that animated the atmosphere this day. The air was fattened, rather, with promises of things to come. Bad things."
