I haven't done one of these in quite a while, but I thought I'd give it a go. This is the sequel to a collection of episodes with this same bounty hunter of magicians who carries a magic sword. I've already finished it at 91K words (85K words were written during NaNo.) If anyone would like to give it or any part of it a read, I'd be more than happy.
