Thrice Damned

By:

A sorcerer with evil intentions or just a murderer waiting for another fool?

At a crossroads, the characters come across a trio of thick poles set into the ground, just outside the overlapping roads.

Crossbeams have been anchored to the poles, and from two poles dangle the bloody and beaten bodies of two men. A raven settles on the head of one of the still bodies, a faint call for help echoing from the other man. Standing at the center of the crossroads is a road-worn traveler, who keeps the brim of his hat down to protect from the glaring sun. As the group nears, he fondles a set of ebony dice in his hand. With a smirk, he points to the open pole and bids the lead character, "care to try your luck?"

Grammar correction/suggestion:
Either "... the bloody and beaten bodies of a man dangles from two (of the) poles." or "...the bloody and beaten bodies of men dangle from two (of the) poles."

There's a lot of suggestion in that, much of it wording, the only correction would be the men/a man bit.

I didn't like this at first but have quickly warmed up to it, especially after figuring out it was a 100-word challenge. There is enough in that 100 words to give me a couple of different ways this could turn out.

Cheers!

Ah, I didn't notice that, thank you for pointing it out to me. I'll change it to "two men".

You're welcome.

Orcish currency is derived from glass beads. The art of glassworking is well beyond them, but perhaps the orcs have something of value to the civilized races, such as animal pelts, and well made axes, and bows. The humans trade beads for the goods, and the orcs will trade the beads amongst themselves as a form of their own currency. Perhaps they value blood red beads above all others, or animistic orcs favor beads in the colors of their gods.

Inspired by Indian trade beads, some of which could be quite ornate and beautiful. Most North American Indian beads were made in Italy. Surprise!
