A series of one shots and short stories based in the world of Prospero. It is mean to add lore to the world. They explore the cultures, history, horrors, and endless possibilities of the world. Come explore it all from the tales of men in the trenches of war to the thieves in Hissele, the city of lies itself.
Here are the previews that I wrote for each of the stories. I figure this would best let you get a sense of the stories so you can pick up which ones interest you.

He may see those he loves again. Home coming is short as a witch strikes for reasons unknown. His purposes must be malevolent like all witch kind, mustn't they? Must they? What could the witches words mean? Third story ever written in The Magistate universe
Templorum (2) (created 10/5/2012)
The first story ever created in the world of Prospero, from A time I just began writing so do not expect much. The Templar Knights are the greatest warriors of The Magistrate, warriors bonded by blood, yet not all of them are of the same mind when it comes to the unity and actions. Such disunity though cannot be allowed to stand within their ranks. For those who turn from The Magistrate, there is one answer. now they fight their order.
