The Most Dangerous Game


Saedrun liked backgammon more than he liked chess. Well, checkers was his favorite game. But it was easier to wrangle up chess-pieces modeled after people, as no one in Avendel made custom checker boards...

So there he sat upon an old tree stump in the shadow of the mountains; an ivory chessboard nearby. Beside the board were three black pieces: two elvish women- bishop and knight; and an ugly little half-elvish girl- a pawn. Down to the lowliest, skeletal pawn, every white piece remained on the board.

The warlocks slender fingers drummed lazily on the tree stump as he awaited black's move. "Seager, my dear, let's try our best to keep our duel... interesting. Idle hands are the Devil's plaything."

Re: The Most Dangerous Game


His hat tilted to the side of his head, the lean elf slumped in his favorite chair by the fireplace in his suite. A stub of a cigar burned away wastefully, stuck between two slender fingers as his other hand lifted the nearly empty bottle of brandy to his lips again. Drunken, green eyes watched the fire's flickering, then suddenly flashed while a grin spread across the elf's face simultaneously. Placing the bottle back upon the table, a slender hand reached beneath his hat, dexterously pulling out a playing card. The Ace of Hearts.

Seager knew he was never the sharpest tool in the shed, nor was he the best player in the game of life. But he knew one thing he was good at. Surprising opponents with the cards he kept hidden.
