All that remains
Of soldiers’ dreams”
This is the entry that I wrote for the 2013 Top Cow Talent Hunt. The winners have already been announced, so I can share it with all of you. The parameters were that we had to pick one of the 13 Artifacts from the Top Cow universe and tell a story about a previous holder of it. I chose the Blood Sword, a katana that was forged with the soul of a demon inside of it. The Blood Sword gives its bearer great power but fills them with an insatiable blood lust. The script follows Shiro, a young Japanese sailor at the turn of the twentieth century, a time when Japan had modernized and moved on from the old feudal system. I hope that you enjoy it, I’m very proud of the job that I did on this script.
