• Arriving At Seahorse Port

    Book 1: Solving Sheepshank’s Problems 1. Welcome to Seahorse Port The journey to Seahorse Port was uneventful. Peric almost expected someone to try stopping them while they were unprotected, but instead he and Bertram took the chance to show Lucille some of the more interesting plants and animals in the area. She asked questions they didn’t have answers to, which showed Peric he needed to learn more about the world around him if he was ever going to be a successful tour guide. Lucille never minded, writing notes in the book he’d given her so she’d remember to look things up at a later date, and did her best to…

  • Looking Back

    From the time I first stepped onto dry land, certain I was never going to set foot on a ship again, I knew nothing was going to be easy. Even though I was an unknown to most they knew of my father. It was unusual for a mouse to be a pirate, and yet that was exactly what my father was. Due to the death of my mother when I was young, so young I only vaguely remember her, he was the parent who raised me. Looking back I’m not entirely certain how it happened, but I think he may well have made the decision without the permission of my…

  • The Swamp Temple

    It was my first time choosing a quest, so I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. Honestly the last thing I thought might be a possibility was for my mentor to hold a bag out, with slips of paper in, for us to pick one out. She said it made everything fairer because it was pure luck which one of us got which and as it was our first time she wouldn’t let us swap. We had to deal with the option we’d chosen, by chance, no matter how hard it ended up being. “Remember, trainees, if the quest becomes too difficult for you it is possible for you to…

  • Solving Sheepshank’s Problems

    1. Welcome to Sheepshank Gaspar watched as Mily, his sheep partner, walked over to the seagull. He could tell from the look that the seagull gave Mily that it knew exactly what was going to happen next. Unfortunately it was often the seagulls who attempted to bring counterfeits into Sheepshank, so they all had to be inspected before entering the town, but that didn’t mean it was always the seagulls. There was a short conversation. Gaspar could tell what was being said even though he couldn’t hear the words. Mily was being calm, as always, explaining to the seagull that it was a legal requirement for it to allow the…

  • Travelling to Taithmarin

    Zoe had always hated lifts. There was no real reason for her hatred, apart from her fear of getting stuck in one. It didn’t matter that it very rarely happened, because the simple fact that it was a possibility was enough to stop her. On the rare occasion she did get in a lift it was for a very good reason. She had a good reason the day she got into a lift with Adam. Normally she would have just walked up the six staircases that would take them to their holiday apartment. Having a large suitcase to carry up those stairs meant it made much more sense just to…

  • Rescuing Drake

    If it had been anyone else Astra wouldn’t have let it bother her. During her time with the Council she’d come to understand why it was so important to know who was travelling where, and the people who could walk between worlds freely, without the tattoos that everyone else needed, were often dangerous. They had no rules to guide them the way the Walkers had, so they felt they were free to change things that shouldn’t be changed. Logically they should be arrested before they could do any damage. Executing them… well, there wasn’t space to keep them all in the cells. Until Drake was arrested she could easily explain…
