Well, it would appear that this was indeed a fight to the death, and Hardin has emerged the victor. These sorts of tribal bouts are not always fatal, but a true Ermehn warrior would rather die facing a stronger foe than cede victory and live the rest of their lives with that hanging on their conscience.


Obviously Hardin now feels he’s in a position to make demands – whether or not the rest of the tribe is in the mood to hear what he has to say is another story. What is it Hardin wants the tribe’s warriors for? Will they be receptive to his goals? We’ll just have to wait until next week to start finding out!


Next weekend I will be attending PAX East in Boston! I’ve got a panel on Saturday (the 23rd) at 1pm in the Naga Theater with Dean Dodrill to discuss our work on “Dust: An Elysian Tail”, along with a special surprise for panel-goers. I’ll be out and about for all three days of the expo, and the company I work for, HitPoint Studios, will also have a booth (#598) that I’ll likely be swinging by once and then to talk about my work on the “Adera” series.

If you see me, don’t be afraid to say hi!

For those who can’t attend, the panel will be streamed live via Twitch.tv for those interested. I don’t have the link, but you should be able to find it if you do a search on the website. You can also follow me on Twitter @tdcpresents for up-to-date info on the panel.
