I Am No Longer Embarrassed over My Smile

meWhen I was younger, my mom was busy raising me and my three younger brothers on her own. She was working two jobs at any given time, and sometimes even three.

While that routine did save my teeth, it was too little too late … Read More

Ostrich Ambos – 2

The Kaliphlin Medical Corps have been brought into the fight against the plague in Avalonia. They travel between affected villages, distributing much needed supplies such as disinfectant, bandages and healing herbs, as well disseminating vital information about avoiding infection and disposing of the dead. In emergencies, they can also be called into action as makeshift ambulances, ferrying those who still have a chance of survival to the nearest designated hospice. This is when the twin ostrich carts come into their own, proving much faster than their horse drawn counterparts.
