Clankland

Oil was never discovered and all technology is clockwork, driven by steam power and alchemy. Weapons made my magical druids called The Mages emit a fearsome power that can only be wielded by a chosen few. Across the east portals have been know to open, connecting the world with parallel universes from which dark beasts have often appeared. A prophecy foretells the arrival of a great ice age, news of snow arrives from the west.

A New Day

Colaiste Eanna

With military powers divided, we were like mice in a cage to her. The factions would never agree at the strategy meetings, but plans were starting to be put into motion. These plans could never have happened if we left the leaders like they were. Myself being a member of the Cobalt Pride, along with being a target of the Blood Witch, called in a favour.

Another Cold Morning

Colaiste Eanna

There's an old phrase, “choose life” and we did. Now, we live on next to nothing and take drags to stay sane. To stay happy. To stay human.

Escape from Clondalkin

Colaiste Eanna

We sat opposite each other talking when some of the mages from the church surprised us. I always had a bad feeling about them. They told us it was illegal to start a fire on the rooftop and we had to go with them, but we weren't going to go without a fight.

Glombies

Colaiste Eanna

I run up and down the corridor, making sure to prioritize the deadliest cases of the virus for treatment. I find a young boy who lost all sense of vision and touch. I pick him up to bring him to the lab and find that his legs have detached from his body.

Punishment

Colaiste Eanna

“There's your keyword 'rumours' because they are only rumours” I shouted. “Well, there's no harm in finding out or not, like what other explanation is there for the massive fire that broke out up there in the middle of winter?”. I grunt in reply. “Like, do you really believe that the mages aren't hiding something up there? There has to be a reason as to why it's a restricted zone.” Orion says frantically. “Maybe.” I say solemnly.

The Arlene Hunters

Colaiste Eanna

I still didn't know what I was going to do, until someone unlocked my front door. It was my aunt. She said something in a foreign language and then it was only us. I ran down to her. She said she had to go before we went through and told me to grab my mam's ashes. I didn't know why but I did it anyway.

The Hellfire Mages

Colaiste Eanna

After training, I head back to my room. They are called rooms but they feel more like prison cells. I meet my roommate Ronan. Him and I are good friends. We both help each other to pass our exams.

The weeks go by and I get more and more worried. We get regular meals here but it must be awful outside. I can barely remember their faces. My dad James, my mam Catherine, and my brother Greg.

The Solution

Colaiste Eanna

The force had just become so meticulous and began raiding houses in dead zones; these were places that had become empty due to people being dead or running away. I had to get in through the back garden and run to my mam as fast as I could.

The Square Hunter

Colaiste Eanna

Someone needs to step up to go find water immediately. Then, Matthew volunteers. He sets out a plan to open the shutters of Tesco, just enough so he would be able to fit through.

The Strength behind Fear

Colaiste Eanna

I snapped out of my trance but I was facing ultimate annihilation. Monsters crowded in waves above me, like vultures circling for leftover carcass. There was a loud pitched frequency. I clutched my ears in pain and squeezed my eyes shut tight. When I opened my eyes, hoards of monsters were launching towards me, as if I was the only one left that needed to be picked off. Thundering footsteps came from behind. It was a hoard of monsters running towards me.
