Hey guys, sorry for the long delay between posts! I’ve got cool news on two fronts!
First, the next chapter of The Oceans Burned is up on Storyshift! Or, at least it should be by the time you read this! Check it out and vote on what happens next!
Also, I have another little update for Iron and Ice! Here it is!
Diving deep into the dark caverns, the tunnel suddenly widened into a great open space. This is where the machines rested in between missions. Mechanics worked furiously to repair damage in large bays off to the side. Machine-shops and work areas were built into little niches around the edge of the space. At all hours the whine of steel on steel could be heard and the flash of sparks could be seen. A never-ending war demanded never-ending labor.
Tiny passageways, dwarfed by the main entrance, lead off into other chambers. This was where the humans lived. Their world was brightened by strings of electric lamps, hung from the ceilings. The harsh glare cast dingy shadows in the confined spaces. There was a mess hall, an infirmary, strategy rooms, living spaces, and even a small gym for exercise and recreation. Dozens of ventilation ducts snaked their way to the surface, where concealed vents drew in fresh air for the soldiers below.
The fortress was one of the greatest achievements of human engineering.
And almost no one in the world knew about it.
