The Working Barbarian

A Tale of Blood, Fire and Steel

Do as you’re told

Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith and put your trust in something else (be it fate, god, destiny or another person) and then hope like hell that they know what they’re doing and that it’ll all come up roses in the end. Jala decided to do just that. Kru’s a centuries old Witch with the power to turn a man inside out and set fire to the sky. She obviously knows what she’s doing. With all that great and terrible power how could she not? What could possibly go wrong? I mean, she’s already trusted Kru once right? And she survived that.

14 - The Mean Streets

Quite a lot probably. But for whatever reason the masses are unanimous, with a landslide in favour of following the Star Witch’s hastily constructed plan. But we would do well to remember that no plan survives contact with the enemy. There will almost certainly be “hiccups” and “unforeseeables.” Because that’s how the world works.

Part 15 shall appear in the form of your strange electronic glyphspeak on Monday 21st of October. It will spring forth, fully formed, from the mind of the Lord Lexical, first among the ancient vox-smiths, James Clayton; Warlock; Conjurer of Dreams; Scion of Tomorrows; Bane of Deadlines and dapper wizard about town.  He will bring us words, words which will make our eyes bleed and our brains boil. It’s going to be, as the “yoofs” of the southlands say, The Shit.
