Lasniniar meets Die Hard?? (lol)

OK, maybe not really… But sweet click-bait title, right?

There is a story behind this, of course. It goes a little something like this:

Me: (Hands Mark the manuscript for Quicksilver.) Here’s the new Lasniniar story that’s coming out in December. Iarion and Barlo are in it. It’s about when they first meet Felara.

Mark: So it’s a Christmas story.

Me: Well… Not exactly. I mean, it takes place around Solstice, but it’s not a Solstice adventure, per se.

Mark: You mean like Die Hard.

Me: Um… yes? (Full confession: I’ve never actually seen Die Hard.)

So yeah. Quicksilver is an Iarion and Barlo, Solstice-adjacent adventure featuring Felara that might possibly be like Die Hard. (But probably isn’t. I forgot to ask Mark for a follow-up comparison after he finished reading it.) Decide for yourself! 😛

Barlo isn’t a fan of Iarion’s new friend.

The strange, unnamed woman arrives from out of nowhere, and seems to know far too much about the legendary elf for Barlo’s taste.

Iarion is more intrigued than concerned. After all, Barlo’s suspicious, dwarven nature has been proved wrong before, and the woman seems friendly enough. But Barlo can’t help but wonder…

Who is she? What does she want?

…And why is she so interested in Iarion?
