This week’s Notable & Quotable comes from The Fires that Forge, Book I of the Lords of Order & Chaos Series. 
“Whoever reported the body was somehow involved,” Medaci said, now drawing deeply from his pipe.  “Following the line that this murder was mocked up to look like the work of a vampire and, failing that, to look as though Whillyd is the one who killed your witness.”
“It is a stretch,” Dunewell said.
“Yes,” Medaci agreed.  “But it does seem to fall into a pattern.”
“Who reported the body?” Keryk asked.
“A street boy,” Medaci said.  “The watchman didn’t get his name.  I’m following up with him tomorrow to obtain a description.”
“We have business at the temple near House Morosse tomorrow,” Dunewell said.  “Perhaps we can meet for lunch and discuss our findings.”
“Agreed,” Medaci said.  “One more thing.  Steward Silas asked to see my notes on the vampire attacks.”
“You are your own man,” Dunewell said.  “But I see no harm in allowing it.  He is very curious about them and may be able to offer some insight.”
“Very well.”

You can find an ever-growing glossary and geographic guide on our website here;  You can also find a few spoilers such as the lineage of kingdoms, the Code of the Cavalier, and so on.   

The spotlight book for this newsletter is The Chronicles of Nadine; The Fire Within The Storm, by Kim Vermaak. 

What if the cost of freedom is the very thing that threatens to destroy who you thought you were? Nadine’s daring escape from the Northern Kingdom did little to calm her fears.

As to life here in our little corner of the world, we are all doing well. Pinker has decided that she needs a special pillow to chew her bones on.  Apparently raising Great Danes is much like raising teenagers.  You have to pick your battles and learn to be happy with the wins.  She doesn’t chew the furniture and is housebroken so we decided she could have her special pillow.

I hope the new year is treating you all well. Let me know how you’re doing.  Feel free to drop me a line at with word of how you’re doing, questions about our tales, or comments about the story or the world of Stratvs.  If you enjoy our brand of ‘humor’ or just want more frequent updates, you can follow us on Facebook here; Roland’s Quest!
Until next time, ‘Crush your Enemies!’
