Egglame

Some people say a man’s honor is worth more than his life, but Egglame is not one of them.

He gets into a jam with a pretty tough character and—literally before he knows it—winds up unconscious in the dust. When he comes to, he’s surprised to find both of his legs working and most of his blood still in his body.

“Maybe I’m not cut out for this shit,” he says.

Later, he packs a suitcase and gets the hell out of Carlion in a hurry with a whole heap of trouble coming down the line behind him.
