What is ‘The Bugman’s Game’?

Standard

Every great fantasy story starts in a tavern, where people can mourn the dead and recruit their replacement in one alcohol fueled night before going back out to raid some poor unsuspecting dead persons last resting place. It is a place of character, filled with heroes and typically a quest hook or two.

Standard

Twibz, the life and times.

That is until 2005 when he met his end via bullet in the brain pan, squish. This was the life of Ted Kord. That is until today, well 2012, when Ted Kord returned in……………
