Just wanted to say that I liked the story, even though it has a sad ending. Interesting idea about the VE fleet, though I wonder what they'd do if they ever ran into real extraterrestrials.
Basically, the story is well worth the price.
Kel's Story is an introduction to Kel, a Tel'dai knight who was on a quest to deal with a Warlord. For those who are wondering Tel'dai knights are the resident bad asses of the Refuge World. Or to put it in gaming terms, they're the Level 10 characters living in a Level 2 world.
The story itself is well written, but there are a couple of minor niggles I have with it. One of those being that the story cuts off too early. I reached the end, sat back and thought to myself "And then what happened?". Another niggle is if the story was set before or after the Warlord had been dealt with. I'm assuming it is after, but I don't remember it being explicitly stated anywhere.
All in all though, it's a good start, and I'm looking forward to more from stories about Kel.
