The pale light of a full-moon glinted off a short, curved blade, fueling the fear that festered in her gut as she struggled to pull herself along on weakening legs. She glanced back again at the slowly approaching figure, tall and lanky with pale skin of a sickly parlor, mottled with thorn-like protrusions. It was in that moment, her eyes drawn to the sickly-yellow glow emanating from beneath her hunter’s hood that he staggered back as an arrow sprouted from his right shoulder. Aruum looked back to the alley’s mouth, where a lone figure clad in a tattered green cloak knocked another arrow to a bow blacker than night. A sharp whistle and a sliver of silver flashed by her face, followed by a pained howl and a crash.
A cacophony of sounds and smells Aruum had been numb to just moments ago returned with a vengeance; drowning out all else in her world. She gasped as the pain in her side blossomed and her legs gave out. Her joints ached and her eyes throbbed, and the coppery tang of blood wet her lips.

She gasped as the pain in her side blossomed and her legs gave out. Her joints ached and her eyes throbbed, and the coppery tang of blood wet her lips. Weakened and fatigued, she could not have balled a fist against the cloaked figure, who now approached as languidly as a wolf upon a lamed doe; the previously drawn bow sheathed on their back. Closer now, Aruum could see her protector wore weathered leather armor inlaid with strange, sylvan designs and markings, familiar and alien, treasured yet forgotten like a childhood memory.
The march towards EQN continues on. We have lost some along the way but progress pushes forward. Landmark Senior Producer Terry Michaels recently made a new post about the progress. The Landmark Live show is scheduled to return on Tuesday, Feb 17 at 10:00am PST with the Workshop Show airing on Thursday, Feb 19 at 11:00am PST. Rosie is scheduled to discuss more of the Qeynos project along with player builds. They are also finalizing plans to updating the roadmap and other items. So keep looking forward to that.
I know we will all miss the personalities of those that have left and the guiding light the provided as the showed us the new creation of EQN. I too will miss them but I will still wait and see what the future holds for us all and I look forward to one day playing EQN with everyone.
