These are dire times for the Royals of Valendor. A royal prince lies dying. An evil monarch has claimed ruling power in the Elven Empire. Join our crew as they divide and conquer. Gearz must honor the deal and help save the crown prince of Valen. Can she put aside her animosity towards Shyni to get the job done? Can Tobin keep from killing his estranged father long enough to see the right person is sitting on the Elven throne. Will Bryan ever get to use his new hammer? Welcome to the next chapter of Sky Pirates of Valendor! In Issue 2.5: A stroll in the Elven countryside should be a time of reflection and thought. It should be a time to take in the scenery and breathe in the fresh air. Unless you’re Tobin Manheim. Then that peaceful ride in the Elven countryside turns to planning out how to overthrow Queen Asmara and restore the rightful ruling heir to the throne. It’s no longer a leisurely ride; it’s business as usual.
