A man named Forrest goes to work one day, worried about his small problems in his insulated world. Then a mysterious message appears on his computer screen, telling him to get out of the building. He does, just as it explodes. He is quickly thrust into a maelstrom of chaos, warring factions and uncertain allegiances. Everything seems to be centered around a medallion that his father gave him before he died. They say it has hidden power and powerful, shadowy forces will stop at nothing to get it.
This is the premise of a collaborative story with 13 chapters that has been ongoing for a couple months, run by my friend Joe Owens. Next week, on Tuesday or Wednesday, my installment of the story will be posted, which will be the 12th and second last chapter.
If you are interested in reading the ones that come before, here is the link to them. It starts with the most current chapter, Chapter 11, but the links to the earlier ones are there too.
