Stories

  1. Bitumen Gutpunch - Enter the Sociopaths - Episode 5

    A gunshot. Followed by the highest pitched scream Petra had ever heard. The silence lingered for a moment, then all hell broke loose. Three guys came barreling round the corner, and were mowed down by a burst from Petra’s smg. Swinging herself up...

  2. Bitumen Gutpunch - Enter the Sociopaths - Episode 4

    Dent was growing bored. It was amusing at first, as Newton’s number 2 tried to cheat Petra, and Petra responded with increasingly inventive insults, but these “deliberations” were taking too long. Within moments of their arrival, Luc ...

  3. Bitumen Gutpunch - Enter the Sociopaths - Episode 3

    Gaz slid his bike forward. This promised to be interesting. Petra brought the gang to a halt at the base of a hill. The combined revving of their engines, intermingled with the ambulance’s sirens, created an intimidating cavalcade as the other bi...

  4. Apocalypse World - London

    To hear people talk about London, one will rapidly develop a sense of bewilderment. Where our story takes place, an indeterminate distance to the north of London, people seldom venture very far south, and with little in the way of communication beyond ...

  5. Bitumen Gutpunch - Enter the Sociopaths - Episode 2

    Flynn rode beside Petra as they crested the hill. Petra called a stop – The Clam lay ahead of them, but some bikers were riding out, a Unimog in their midst. “Who the fuck are they?” was the call, so Flynn reached forward and drew the...

  6. Bitumen Gutpunch - Enter the Sociopaths - Episode 1

    Petra woke to the sound of sirens. She was used to the sound by now, the giant rusting alarm clock at the heart of their camp. She rolled off T-Bone and quickly dressed. She was hoping for as early a start as possible. Stepping out from the improvised ...

  7. Apocalypse World - Nomad and Serenity

    In New-England (Not to be confused with New England, or even New-New-England), many people know Serenity, and most of those people know Nomad as well. Nomad is a wanderer, a mere boy of sixteen, not yet that well versed in the struggles of the new-worl...

  8. Apocalypse World - The Clam

    The Clam is a new-world community named for the large clam insignia suspended in the air on a large pole, that has been around longer than even Artemis can remember. It sits on the M, between two hills, a big one to the north, and an almost certainly e...

  9. Apocalypse World - Flynn

    THUMP! That was the first thing you notice about Flynn, the thudding of his heavy steel-toed military boots, announcing his coming wherever he went. He is a formidable man, fearsome to look upon, his muscular form masked by his heavy biker jacket, and ...

  10. Fool's Gambit

    The man in the waistcoats recovered first, “You! It can’t be! The fire! How could you possibly have survived?” I should probably confront the issue that more astute readers will have picked up, which is that if this masked man was hor...

  11. The Order of the Kraken

    The three of them strode side by side up the ramp, hard leather soles and steel capped cane clattering loudly as they entered the submersible. Passing through narrow passageways, they meandered instinctively towards the bridge. Upon entering the bridge...

  12. The Pieces Arranged

    A calm breeze carried the warmth of the serotinal sun, creating a pleasant atmosphere by the docks. The first of their number approached the newly instaurated submersible. He wore a dissilient waistcoat over a plain white shirt, the cuffs rolled up to ...

  13. Welcome to my World, edition 4

    Lore – Genesis In the time before, darkness consumed the world. But some of the land remained untouched. In what is now the continent of Salgaron, the great heroes came to be. From the ground came He who is our Strength, whose strength of heart a...

  14. Not What You Thought

    Weak. Pathetic. Loser… Care? Why should he? Hollow words that bear no meaning. He enjoyed his life. As far as he could tell, there was nothing wrong with it. Nerd. Geek. Dork… As far as he could tell, these words almost always referred to s...

  15. John Doe 0608201708

    It had been a busy day. So many people had come and gone, they all sort of bluured together. But not him. There was something about that boy that engraved itself on her soul. The face. So young. So peaceful. Almost happy. Almost, but not quite. A convi...

  16. 80's Pun Party

    “Hey. What’s up?” “Do you think you could train doves to cry?” “What? Why? Why do you want to train doves to cry?” “Why do you have a balloon?” “I took my son to the park and he wanted one. No...

  17. It Happened Again

    The dark fingers reached across her bed, curling around her throat. Her eyes prised open as she became aware of the noise. She reached for her phone. It was not yet three AM. She clambered out of bed and walked briskly to the window, as she pressed the...

  18. The Title of Twenty Titles

    The clocks ticked over to a new day, as the stampede of great grey mammals came roaring down the road. A drummer got crushed. I couldn’t help but wonder what his last worry was, dieing, getting pooped on, or just some possessive crap about a hot ...

  19. Uselessquoteman

    “Uselessquoteman? So what exactly is your power?” I asked the mysterious stranger in the long dark trenchcoat. He had a black fedora pulled low, squashing a shock of messy black hair to his head. “Power resides where men believes it r...

  20. Completing the Circle

    The challenge is now over, 30 days have passed. But I guess we should keep writing If we can be @#?ed. Now we’ve all had heaps of fun, And made some nice new friends, And as we move into July, The writing need not end. We are no longer now compel...

  21. Disappointment: Ground Zero

    There is no greater disappointment than that I felt the other day. You ready yourself, you got play, and then they take it all away. Your family all prepare to play Cluedo. You rush upstairs, grab the box, whip off the cover. Miss Scarlet, Reverend Gre...

  22. The End Times

    Xanynhakh’s oils were pumping hot through his body. The Cryptoch was so close, he could almost reach out and take it. He had felt its energies before, when he had been held back from his prize by the Eldar reinforcements, but now the taste was st...

  23. Weather or Not

    Heat Stifling, Biting at my eyes. The sun beats upon the roof. Slanted walls radiate heat all around me. My shirt Bound to my back By trickles of moisture. Salt Bound into the sweat. It’s too hot They say, When a half year before, They worried an...

  24. The Halls of Knowledge

    We walked down the corridor. Each wall was in fact a book shelf, so high the ceiling was shrouded by dark shadows. Ancient tomes of leather and cloth spines fill the shelves, a utopia of fact and fiction. “Well, this is terrible,” Mark said...

  25. The Plan

    “It’s not much farther now!” Screamed Dr. Instavic over the roar of the snowy winds, his transylvanian accent carrying through the snowstorm. Reach the pole, apply the serum. Simple. “Yes, simple,” the Count muttered to hi...

  26. The Darkness

    The darkness is all around me. It swallowed me whole. The thought makes me giggle. It may seem incoherent, but the use of the word whole, and the apparent hole I’m in… I guess I just have a thing for word play. Everyone has their own theory...

  27. A Deal is Struck

    Xanynhakh was a mighty Phaeron. And the Hakyx dynasty’s might reflected that of its ruler. There was a time when his name would send the most stalwart of men fleeing for their lives. But the universe has grown old, its inhabitants have grown stup...

  28. Hard Life

    I’m in jail. They throw you in jail for anything nowadays. Interesting day? Jail. Good show on TV? Jail. I’ve been in jail for the entire exam period. It’s not easy being a brain.

  29. The War of Chaos

    The Vindicator was retreating. The battle had been raging for a long time, and the conflict was escalating. Xanynhakh surveyed the field, and found his foe, Radek, running for the safety of the bastion, accompanied by a small escort of his finest Chaos...

  30. Span of Attent... Ooh! A Bird!

    A speck of paint on my thumb. A small blemish on the nail. Turn it over. The print that once could be argued to define me is artifically blackened by the stuff. The xbox is running. I’m halfway through a mission. People need to be shot. But I hav...
