“Truth is Stranger”
in Chronicle Worlds: Paradisi
When a mysterious stranger arrives at a lonely outpost on a dark and stormy night, she discovers a feud brewing between the local shepherds and the invading engineers. But rather than let a tide of cliches drag them all down into a bloody battle where one side must win and the other must lose, the traveler offers them a third choice, a stranger choice.
