I sank to my knees, sword loose in my hand. The adrenaline that fuelled me through my battle with the wyvern burned away. Wearily my chin dropped to my chest. The long, laborious battle with the wyvern would leave scars; my shield splintered early, split by the beast’s wicked tail. If it hadn’t been for my traps, laden with ice magic, I would have perished.

Catching a glint of gold, I stumbled to my feet. There it was: ‘Soul Cleaver’, right at the edge of the wyvern’s nest. Finally, with the magic sword in hand, my true adventure could begin.

Of course I had to rush off and see what Soul Cleaver was. Well done.

Ha ha. I assumed it was something to do with this world of Warcraft that I had never heard of. I never got as far as checking if it was a sword. Good name – they must have pinched it off you.

As with other stories here at Voice Club, there were a couple of new words for me to look up: wyvern” and “soul cleaver”. They are important to create the ambiance of adventure and science fiction, suspense and adventure. Well done, Carrie!

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. Only club members can read posts submitted into a contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!

Gems Stories are public:  On the other hand the Gem stories are different, since there is no voting on Gems. During a Gem event, your friends and fans can come on and read without a SignIn. This is one of the great advantages of the Gem events.
