Blimmin' eck, I'm liking that start to the year! Thank you to all who voted for my entry :) I voted for "Balance" by @Alex Hormann this time. The voice was super evocative, almost fable-y, and with some great imagery and motifs throughout.

Congrats, @bdcharles. I voted for “Fuh”, too, and really enjoyed the unbridled feel of it. And LESION! What a horrible, wonderful name for a blade. I would love to read a true story structure around the concepts you created. So many questions! But maybe the Purple Mages just dont want them answered...

Thanks @JMack! Those Purple Mages and their endless demands, eh? I'm glad you liked it. I wasn't sure if the title/name "Fuh" was a bit silly (you can probably tell how little thought I put into that particular part:) ) so if I do write more around it, which I am definitely in the mood for, I may change the name. Lesion stays, though, for sure :) I'll see to it that it inflicts some serious scars on its journey.

And I've just had some further thoughts around the story too, so thanks for prompting those. Mmmmm new epic fantasy projects mmmmmm
