The Trials of the Core
by Michael E. Thies
An old adage goes: “The toughest trials test you truest.” No one knows this better than the current Guardian of the Core, Edwyrd Eska, and it is exactly what he aims to accomplish when he sends out invitations to a handful of contestants who are deemed worthy enough to attend his Trials.
These Trials challenge each participant in unimaginable ways. Through tenuous partnerships, intellectual rivalries, battles of weapons mastery, and a race against death, each contestant must overcome personal demons that haunt them.
In this tale of ideal dreams and lucid aspirations, these competitors find theirs threatened by deceit, betrayal, sabotage—and even flesh—as all become vital to success.
That is, assuming they even make it to the Trials to begin with. . .
