Dane has just left his smithing apprenticeship to pursue the adventure he has been waiting for his entire life—how will he handle his first taste of the battle? He is young, impulsive, and inexperienced, but the Quicksilver that coats his body might be of more use than originally expected.

Dane’s adventure heats up as he is thrown into battle and meets more of the Royal Guards he so admires. Will they be able to help him in his quest to identify how he survived being coated in the mysterious metal covering his skin? Join him in his journey to find out!

The Blacksmith and The Apprentice: Issue 1

The ancient art of blacksmithing is a thing of beauty. A lot of hard work goes into the process. It’s very complicated, really. Stoking the flames to many small, contained fires—making lumps of metal into differently shaped items of metal—hitting said lumps of metal with hammers to turn them into different weapons. You can shape metals into whatever item you want.

Okay, it might not be a very interesting job, but apprenticing with the best blacksmith in the kingdom is a huge opportunity. Blacksmiths make the tools everyone needs to get about in their day-to-day lives. It’s a very prestigious and impressive position, although this honor is lost when the position is held by Dane, a youthful boy who dreams of greater adventure!

Luckily, Dane has a skilled master to reign in his daydreaming. Viegar has quite an interesting past. From his years on the Royal Guard to his close relationship with the previous king, he’s quite a friend to have on your side.

There is one other apprentice, Snip, who is much more passionate about his duties than Dane. Between the three of them, they churn out powerful weapons and protective armor, usually with no thanks to Dane.

Of course, no cast of characters would be complete without the big man in charge—in this case, a king. By almost anyone’s account, he’s a good and fair ruler, but there is no one in power without enemies. Though Viegar and his workers only want to help their wonderful king, there are still plenty who wish to do him harm. But Dane can only imagine such things. It’s not as if he’d ever be in the position to really make any sort of difference or be in any place of power.

Right?

And though his apprenticeship is mundane and boring, the young man gets a few moments of excitement. Every once in a while, his master Viegar lets him venture out past the village to visit the caravan, where he can trade and buy supplies. It’s the most excitement Dane ever gets in his line of work.

Sometimes, he gets to meet interesting people.

Sometimes, he hears interesting things.

And maybe, just maybe, he sometimes hears of a new opportunity for himself.

But who would want to give up such a life as an esteemed apprentice?

But of course, destiny and desire are not always what you expect . . .

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.
