Here be division by zero.
A contingent of seasoned veterans formed our welcoming party. They lowered their weapons upon recognizing us. We could just barely catch a glimpse of a civilian dragging the bloody corpse of an ettin away into the darkness.
"The cartos, you are?" said the militia commander. "Help yourselves. We'll pretend you don't exist."
"Is there no one to show us around." I asked.
"No." he flatly answered. "The place has got no use for paper pushers. Fall in line while you can."
I am a master cartographer. I hold a Grand Master title in architecture. My purpose is to map, and describe. Nobody hates cartographers. What've I done to deserve this treatment?
I looked at him, and only saw glazed-over eyes that looked right through me, disacknowledging my existence the moment the conversation was over. The poor commander had been worked to the bone for so long, that it had become his life.
Past the depot, the barracks awaited. The militia practiced on one another, rather than training dummies. They always held live, deadly weapons. Whoever dared attack the place would never make it past this room.
Beyond were signs of constant, corrupted renovations. The entrance had been a bedroom, a hall, a storage depot, and a little of all of those at once for a time. The stones did not sit quite right anymore. It was difficult to tell where the original design ended, and where the new ones began.
More troubling however were the green glass sections boring straight through the hall. From there, the rumble was at its loudest.
"What is this?" I asked a passerby, pointing at the glass.
The dwarf answered gruffly. "Dry-run test. We'll be ready to go in an hour"
"To go? Where?"
But already, the dwarf was gone. - Shurikane
