400.4 KBLand Grant - (short story, fantasy) The secret of creating irridesium, a power magical metal, has been lost from the world of Saltwave but for one lone kingdom of the tiger-like Ishan on the tropical continent of Rashand. In order to get the secret from the Ishan, a burly catling warrior has to prove herself worthy of the ruler's trust. She must first pass a challenge of arms, and then complete a "simple task" for the prachkt. But in order to meet the challenge honorably, she must do so without using her magical earthen powers. Facing the champions of a warrior race, will her own un-augmented skill be enough, and what else will the prachkt ask of her?
