Twilight Coast

It's been a long time since I've played with Bryce. It's time to get reacquainted. You can get version 5.5 for free!

I don't know where this 'story' will go, just that it concerns a very inexperienced explorer and his unfortunate crew.

Misadventures of the Regal Drake
Part I: Arrival at Twilight Coast

June 8

     My eagerness to go ashore would not be quelled despite the general consensus to wait until morning. I must admit that the elation I felt upon touching the sand soon gave way to apprehension when we found little firewood and darkness fast approaching. A brief period of alarm ensued whilst I weighed our options. Indeed, even my first mate, Connors, flirted with blatant insubordination when I announced my decision to burn a longboat. Tempers subsided, as I knew they would, once we basked in the glow of fire and passed the drink. What began in protest was ended in celebration. Our adventure has begun with a most marvelous flame...

(To be continued in mid-August.)
