Re: The Last of the House of Or

Ton was flying over Kandor on the back of a four-winged H'Raka, just like he did everyday as a child going to academy. Rao was setting like it did while he was courting Fiora Vor-Zod. It didn't work out, but those were some of the best days of his life. It was the first dream Ton-Or had in days. Or ...

The Last of the House of Or

1,000 Years Ago, in the High Court of Kandor "The accused will rise." At the Judge-Magistrate's words Ton-Or stood up in dread. The trial had not gone well. "Ton-Or, on the accusation of murder the court finds you guilty." "I was framed!" Ton-Or shouted. No one seemed to notice. The Judge-Magistrat...
