Fiend Fighter
There is always excitement every week at The Broken Valor, where gladiators fight for wealth, fame, or simply survival. Gold passes hands with every fight, and the were-rats perform their grim duty on the corpses of the losers. But for Farulazar, a dwarf expelled from the dwarvish fortress known as Dwarfhome, pit fighting is just a job, a lousy, stinking job. Each week he fights and then spends his winnings on drink, biding his time until the next match. Once every year, in commemoration of the beginning of the Demon Scourge, he marches into the pits to slay yet another fiend. It is what he does, for he is Farulazar Fiend Fighter.

As the annual demon fights draw nigh, a storm has descended on Crown. For Farulazar, a storm of a different kind begins to form inside him. His manipulative partner, Alfem is a halfling with dark secrets. Strangely, an assassin has wounded him a week before he is to fight a demon. Convinced that Alfem arranged the attack, Farulazar sets out to discover his motives. What the Fiend Fighter discovers sends him in a pursuit which could cost him his life and bring destruction to Crown.
