Recommended Posts

The low roar of the crowd grew louder in the cramped arena.  Spectators crowded into the aisles and walkways making passage impossible.  In the lower areas closer to the stage, the privileged class enjoyed more spacious accommodations.  Between them and the rabble was a thick layer of armed guards.

Laying upon the soft ground, she visually took in the surroundings.  A green canopy of trees blocked a portion of the sun, which explained the relative coolness in the tropical setting.  She wondered how in the world she ended up here.

  After spending four hours at a brisk pace traversing the forest, Vaush felt exhausted.  Comron showed no signs of weariness as he forged his way through the wilderness. Despite her best effort, she
