Shadows of Stormreach: Chapter One
Eberron creator, Keith Baker, has written a story exclusively for
Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach.
Shadow could taste blood in her mouth ... her
own. A crossbow bolt was embedded in her left shoulder, another in her
right thigh. Every step was torture, and her vision blurred. But she
couldn't give in to the pain. The enemy was on her trail.
group of sailors blocked the street ahead of her: Sarlonan traders
unloading their scow, shouting and laughing. Shadow plunged into the
mob. The sailors were human, and they towered over her. One nearly
tripped over the halfling girl. Shadow didn't speak their language, but
from the tone she guessed the oath was a foul one. She emerged on the
other side of the throng and kept running. If she was lucky, the
sailors would prove more of an obstacle for her pursuers. A newcomer
might have begged the men for assistance, but Shadow was no fool, and
she knew better than to look for charity on the wharves of Stormreach.
The sounds of ocean and city seemed distant, and even the pain had
dissolved into cold void. She stumbled, barely staying on her feet. You've
come too far to fall.
