More > prison, created by the Theocrats with the aid of powerful magic, its nearly endless passages extend hundreds of feet into the earth. The enormous edifice serves as a reminder of the power of the Supreme Theocrat and a deterrent to the city's numerous and diverse inhabitants that would choose to commit a crime.

Each member of the crew is fighting to survive for one year, at which time they can join the regular army or be executed. The game can be played as a single one-off battle to the death or a campaign.

Luther Lewis, inflexible and autocratic, bestrides his pits like a colossus. He is feared and hated and grudges go deep. Many pits are closed or on short time and it needs only a spark to create... More > industrial chaos. Tom Morgan, union man, provides the spark, and Dai Crew’s hatred causes the fateful blow to be struck. The resultant calamity is quite unlike the popular conception of a mining disaster and many families become embroiled. Above ground, non-one knows who, if anyone, has survived – and then it becomes known that Lewis himself was one of those below ground at the time of the cave-in. Whilst the task of getting to survivors begins, the disaster provokes all – those safe on the surface and those trapped below – to start a process of soul searching. For some it is a wake-up call - others have no soul to search. Behind every face is a story – and behind many of these faces are ugly secrets that would do better to stay hid.< Less

More > lot of stories to tell—some good, some bad—and they are all right here, in this terrific book.” —Richard Petty When you stand out there before a race, and you hear the cheering of 150,000 people, and you know that millions of other people are watching on television… well, you just can’t imagine the pump. It is just something you can’t get enough of. I used to tell people when the day came that I could hear the words, “Gentlemen, start your engines,” and not get goose bumps, that was the day I was going to walk away. It hasn’t happened yet. I’m broadcasting now, instead of crew chiefing, but I still feel that way. Still get those goose bumps. “Racing is all about chemistry. Hammond and I had it. We were always on the same page. Sometimes I was on the front page though, and he was on the back page!” —Darrell Waltrip< Less
