marsscape2

Mars: 10 years after the Fall. A Firewall sentinel has gone missing two weeks into an undercover mission.

Two weeks is not necessarily a red flag for the scanners and vectors until secret Firewall caches across Mars started being very carefully, cautiously, and skillfully raided.

PROX-E KING has been informed and taps several new, untested agents to track down the missing and presumed dead sentinel, reacquire their cortical stack, and stop the OpSec leak.

But Mars runs thick with blood and betrayal. The sentinel team is setting off on a path whose twists and turns they cannot begin to imagine. Mars will show them fear in a handful of dust.

Little Fears – Ichor Falls Part 1

banner

The once-abandoned West Virginia mining town of Ichor Falls lies always shrouded in mist. It crouches like a slick mushroom in a river valley, brooding. Abandoned by the world for several decades, new inroads are being created. The Elysium Group, the land’s new owners, are attempting to revitalize the near idyllic Falls, welding modern design to repaired turn-of-the-century ruins that slouch in decay.

It is 1986, and four middle-schoolers have moved with their families to take up residence in the new Ichor Falls suburb, Elysia. Their parents have told them that it’s a wonderful new opportunity for them and the family. That things can be different here, no matter what came before.

What is it about this time of year that entrances so many people? Is there a magic inherent to the season or is it really just the collective will of countless believers pooling their want into a single night?

With so many children putting so much effort into a single wish, surely it can’t go unanswered forever. There must be a tipping point, the snowflake that causes the avalanche. For most, like so many childhood dreams, the wish goes unfulfilled. For one little boy though, that wish seems have come true. He must be the luckiest kid in the world, right?
