Shards of Ice is a Science Fiction piece about the head of the King’s Bodyguards and a Vigilante, and how they both have secrets that they can’t share.

F A2Z ChallengeFlying Pods are one form of transportation on Eldora.  Being a cold planet, these have to be specially built containing a self heating engine, and one that can work in extreme cold.

Pods are egg shaped, with the narrow end being the cockpit, and the wider end being the engine compartment.  They are held off the ground by a tripod feet, all extending from the same undercarriage.  The pods are built to withstand the extreme cold, and to fly quickly to and from the various cities.  Pods are capable of standing their own in a snow storm, if they have to land and weather it out.  They all have heater systems in the skin of the machine that enables the snow to be melted off prior to take off.

Propulsion system is a couple of jets which come off the back of the pod, propelling them along at colossal speeds.  The average cruising  speed of the pod is 250 km/h.

Not all pods are spherical.  Some are boxy in shape, or more oval than egg shaped.

Tomorrow we focus our attention on Guilt.

    Thanks, funny though, how I imagine them and how others imagine them will be completely different. That’s what so much fun about writing some description and leaving the rest to the imagination.
