Sixty years ago the world was wrecked during a terrible war. The soil was poisoned. The air became toxic. Billions died. Those who survived took refuge in great towered cities, and began constructing giant colony ships that would enable them to escape the ruined Earth.

The work wasn’t completed in their lifetime. The seas rose to swamp the diseased land, and lap against the city walls. Their descendants laboured on, and now the first of the spaceships is nearing completion.

But these cities aren’t dictatorships. An election is scheduled to choose a leader for this last exodus of humanity. With twenty-four hours until voting is due to begin, two workers are murdered. It is the first serious crime in generations, and it is down to the young Constable Ely to solve it. The election must take place. The ships must be launched. Above all, production must come first.

According to ancient Minecraft lore...

The Stone Marshall Studio is developing a new series: Legends & Heroes. Created by Stone Marshall, the author of the popular Flynn’s Log series.

A hybrid of comic-book style illustrations and short stories. Each issue is fun, challenging, and engaging. 

These interrelated  stories follow a series of characters on a journey through life in Minecraft. Relatable characters, thrilling action, and colorful illustrations will suck in readers and leave them excited to read the next adventure!

Secrets await!

Solve the puzzle, uncover secrets!

According to ancient lore, a millennia ago there was an unspeakable power held within the Stone of Bregu. This ancient jewel was broken and its pieces were scattered across the cube. Stories tell of shards being recovered. Their wielders gain incredible power—but it is a personal power that does not replicate: no two people have exactly the same ability. Every shard offers a glimpse into the Bregu’s all-consuming power. Some say there is only one who is destined to reunite the shards and use the strength found within the Stone of Bregu to create balance in the world. Many Heroes have considered it their destiny, though few have had any luck in finding more than a single shard.

Gwen was once one of the most powerful Heroes in the realm, but as she grows older her strength wanes. When a troubled stranger presents her with the missing shard of Bregu—and the opportunity of a lifetime—age becomes . . . less of a concern. Power corrupts even the purest of minds, and Gwen holds the source of utmost power. In a twist of fate, she might find that her destiny lies in the dark magic she once held at such a careful distance from her heart.
