Syth wakes up in chains. He was taken from his home planet
and brought to this strange land. These people destroyed his village and now
they are training him to become a toy soldier.
be forced to fight in these mock battles, which pit one toy soldier General
against another. Yet, while fighting for
Jodu, Syth meets Belia. She is one of the bait females in Jodu’s army. Her fate in each battle depends on if the toy
soldier in Jodu’s army can save her before the other army’s toy soldiers kill
her. Belia takes Syth’s breath away and
gives him hope that there might be something more than this nightmare he finds
himself in. Keeping her safe from the other toy soldiers drives him.
is a super soldier in General Kria’s toy soldier army. His skill as a warrior has placed Kria’s army
in first place in the toy soldier rankings.
She knows it is because of Axon’s battle prowess that her army is ranked
number one. To ensure Axon’s obedience
she makes sure that Axon is given his reward of the pleasure slave Pela after
each of his victories. The promise of
seeing Pela is the only reason Axon follows Kria’s orders and fights so hard to
be victorious. Syth will have to come up
against Axon when Jodu’s army battles with Kria’s. Both men fight for the same
reasons, to be with the female that has taken their heart. Both are equally
driven, both will do whatever it takes to get back to their female.
primitive toy soldiers are no match for the technologically advanced people of Tanasia. Yet, Xyloc, the trainer
of Jodu’s toy soldier army, sees something in the new toy soldier Syth’s gaze
that chills him to the bone.

better have some decent toy soldiers for me. I can’t believe Rius’ pathetic
army almost beat me,” Jodu said as his private tram pulled up to the slaver
district. “I hate coming to this part of town.”
know, Jodu, but it is a necessity to fill the ranks of your army,” Xyloc said.
He disliked going anywhere with Jodu, but Jodu paid well, in fact he paid the
best of all the toy soldier Generals. This is all Xyloc needed to know. So,
here he is employed as the overseer to Jodu’s army. It’s bad enough Jodu never
listened to advice, but the way Jodu dressed made him stick out in any crowd.
Today’s outlandish outfit was no different, all that shiny black leather and
feathers and not to mention Jodu wore makeup just like a female would. Still,
money was money and Jodu had plenty of that. Xyloc sighed seeing Darlene waiting
by Dusu’s place of business. Darlene was Jodu’s little sister and was a major
pain in the ass to Xyloc. She was just as weird as her brother and even more
spoiled than Jodu was.
smiled seeing his little sister. “I didn’t think you were going to make it.”

make sure you get some really hot ones. The crowd loves our army because they
are so smoking hot.”

you pulling the stick out of your ass would be too, but I deal with it. You
know Xyloc, you would be very hot yourself if your grumpy attitude didn’t take
away from your looks.”
ignored her and turned his attention to Jodu. “On a good note, Rius’ soldiers
didn’t kill any of our skilled troops. He only managed to kill the bait and
are worth points too, especially the bait. His shitty males killed all five of
those stupid females. Let’s make sure we get pretty bait. The crowd loves
is cheap, so I don’t care what we get. I want to add two new toy soldiers to
the ranks though.”
headed inside where Dusu was eagerly awaiting them. Dusu looked the part of a slave
trader. His dark shoulder-length hair always looked to be in need of washing.
He appeared to have permanent stubble on his face and his dark eyes looked as
though he was plotting something. His body was thin, yet his clothes were finely
tailored. Dusu was the main slave trader all the toy solider Generals used.
it is always nice to see you.” Dusu went over and shook Jodu’s hand. He looked
at Xyloc but didn’t acknowledge his presence. “I saw your victory over Rius.”

Kria was interested in seeing him, but I wanted to give you first look at him.”
shot Dusu a daggered look. That weasel knew exactly what to say to Jodu to get
him to buy any slave. “What happened to your hand?” Xyloc gestured to the
bandage that was wrapped around Dusu’s right hand.
stupid female slave got lucky and stabbed me with my golden pen. I have put her
in the lineup for you to choose as bait. I was going to sell her to Fano, to
use in his Voluptatem, but there is no way he will be able to train her to be a
pleasure slave.” Dusu gestured for them to follow him.
were twenty males chained to the wall. Some were old, some were small, some
were rather skinny and a few were very overweight. “I have handpicked some
fodder for you. A nice variety, I can of course make changes if you wish.”
really fat ones will make a nice mess out on the battlefield,” Darlene said as
she slapped the large rounded belly of the dark-haired male.
old ones are a nice touch,” Jodu said.
others might put up some sort of fight. Who knows, Xyloc might be able to make
toy soldiers out of them eventually,” Dusu said as he smirked at Xyloc.
anyone could it would be Xyloc,” Jodu said as he looked over the fodder. “I
will take them.”

she hissed at him.

nodded and led them to another room.

chest. “This one is hot,” she said licking her lips. “Look at me, male.” She
smiled looking into his dark eyes. “What’s your name?”

system. And the implant makes them a little fuzzy too.”
moved to the next male. She ran her hand down his hard body. “He looks a lot
like that other one, but the other one is a bit hotter. Still, he ain’t bad.”
She moved down to the next male.

like his long wavy dark hair. He is so hot too. And his body feels like stone
covered in silk like those other two. Jodu, please buy all three of them.”
smiled at his sister. “I will take all three. Xyloc, I will leave the transport
of all my new slaves up to you.”
grabbed a console that was on a movable cart. He went to each male and programmed
the chip in their head to Jodu’s frequency. “There, all set. Now let’s talk
price.” Dusu led Jodu and Darlene into another room.
went and got his guards. They loaded up the fodder and the bait. He told them to take them to Jodu’s compound. He
had to get the toy soldiers onto the next tram. He smiled seeing the tram pull
up. He knew Taus was coming to help him with the new toy soldiers.
what do we have to work with,” Taus said as he stepped off the tram.
walked over to the large ebony male. Taus was the second overseer and only
answered to Xyloc and Jodu. “Well, for once Darlene’s eager pussy actually
helped to pick out some decent soldiers.” Xyloc led Taus into the room where the
three males were still chained to the wall.

are in excellent shape. What planet are they from?”
the warrior mark,” Taus said pointing at the tattoo of a jungle cat on two of
the males’ arms. “This one is marked too, but is from a different clan. At
least all three were warriors. We can work with that.”
toy soldier Pyro almost took off Mezo’s head. Thank goodness Mezo is a fast
motherfucker. We can’t afford to lose a toy soldier of his caliber.”
yet, we almost did. Fucking Pyro. Dusu’s pick of fodder is less than ideal.
Jodu of course likes them because they will certainly make a mess on the
battlefield,” Xyloc said as he sat on one of the chairs.
fodder is killed it’s worth points too. I think this escapes Jodu’s notice
sometimes. It puts too much pressure on the toy soldiers knowing they will have
to make up those points.”

it’s our asses that have to listen to him scream when those damn fodder points
add up. I swear if he didn’t pay so damn well,” Taus said as he lowered his
voice. “I would so go to work for another General who wasn’t so strange. Shit,
Jodu looks like a damn female sometimes. It makes me uncomfortable. And don’t
get me started with that slutty, boyish-looking sister of his.”
laughed. “Jodu pays really well, so I can overlook a lot.”

it wouldn’t be a hardship to bed her. Shit, to have a connection like that to
the Overlord of this whole fucking planet…damn I would jump at that chance.”

both became silent when Jodu came back into the room.
fodder and the bait are on their way to the compound. Taus and I are just
waiting for those three to wake up. It’s dangerous to move them until they have
regained their senses.”
well…they are paid for. They weren’t cheap either so they better help me to
win. I’m going to go fetch my new wifey and bring her home, so I will meet you
there. I want those three training to start right away. I have a match with Milieus
in a couple days. That pussy General is a good start to test these new ones

commands. I can’t wait until I am a real General then fuck this following

followed Jodu out of the room.

did,” Taus said.
laughed. “That she did.”
felt like his head was going to explode. The mental fog was finally lifting and
he found himself chained to a wall. He looked around the cold, gray, metal
room. He saw Lox chained to the wall beside him and another male he didn’t know
also chained further down from Lox.
Where did those bastards take
him? What happened to his village?
The last thing he remembered was a large group of males with nets and strange
weapons attacking the village. There was no time to fight back. They attacked
so fast and so efficiently there was no defense against it. Not to mention
those weapons they carried were unlike anything he had ever seen. Burst of
light came from the strange weapons and blew holes into any villager it
touched. The words the males spoke were foreign and he didn’t understand.

for shit sakes, I hate these fucking primitive bastards. Everything is new and
scary to them for the first few weeks. Listen, Syth, your life is no longer
your own. Your village, the people that you knew are probably dead or in the
same predicament you find yourself in. You, however, are what we call a toy
soldier. You fight for your new owner Jodu. You don’t fight, you die. It’s that
simple. However, if you fight well, things can be pretty sweet for you. I bet
you have a splitting headache.”

other words, you do as you are told or we can blow your head off. You
understand what I’m saying because of the language chip that is also implanted.
This planet is nothing like that backwater planet you are from and I’m sure you
are going to get freaked out. Try to control that.” Xyloc took a sleek black
rod from his hip holster out. “This is what I use to bring a world of pain to
you if you don’t do what I say or if you act like a primitive animal. You be a
good toy soldier and I won’t have to use this. You try and attack me when I get
you ready for transport and I will show you just how bad this little stick can

I just gave him the speech,” Taus said.

Syth and this is Lox.”
goody, you all are getting acquainted,” Xyloc said. He gestured for his guards
to prepare the three males. “Remember, anyone tries anything and you get the
stick of pain.”
three of them just went along. They were frightened by all the strangeness
around them. And they didn’t have any sort of weapon. Syth backed away from the

three of them got into the tram and sat. They all three were frightened when it
started to move. Syth looked out the window. There were so many strange things
buzzing by the window. Who were these people that now held him captive? How was
he supposed to fight against something he didn’t understand? Syth was so
confused and frightened. He was having trouble letting it all sink in. He
looked at the other two. He could see they were having the same problem.

I just don’t want these assholes winding up our new recruits or we will be
wasting valuable training time calming them down.”

pair of doors. He looked behind him and saw Lox and Krono were right behind. Taus
was behind them and the group of guards was bringing up the rear.

until you earn the better ones. Beyond those doors is where the bait quarters
are. Xyloc gestured for Syth to go into one of the smaller rooms. He grabbed
the chains that were bolted on the floor. He attached the metal cuffs to Syth’s
wrists. “I need you to be still.” He stepped back.

all you want, but I would recommend just standing there. The sooner the doc
looks at you the sooner you will be free to walk around your room. I can’t
allow you to walk freely around the others until you know your place. You won’t
be going near the bait until I know they are safe around you. The fodder won’t
have time to get to know anyone, but you are free to mingle with them in the
common area once you get used to everything.”
are females used in the game. Jodu likes them pretty so I’m sure you will be
tempted to fuck them. That isn’t going to happen yet. Fodder are lesser primitive
males whose only purpose is to die spectacularly on the battlefield. Don’t fill
your head with too much shit.”

animal,” an older female said as she came into the room with a large black

you. Did you check out the fodder and bait yet?”

start this shit, doc. Your bleeding heart makes me want to puke.”

this male. He better be in good shape or I will have Dusu’s balls.” Xyloc left

examine you and make sure you are healthy.”
regarded the petite older woman for a moment. She had such kindness in her
eyes. He relaxed.

quick scan with this then I will have to physically touch you. Is this alright

She stepped back and looked at the results of the scan.

my village was attacked those males used strange spears that light burst from
and where the light touched it blew holes into the flesh.”
spears are called pulse energy projectile guns. You can just call it a gun.
They call your people’s weapons barbaric, but if you ask me it’s those guns
that are inhuman. I can’t believe they use your planet and those other two
planets as slave farms just because my people see yours as less than we are
because we have more technological knowledge. We should be helping not hurting
these worlds. I’m sorry, you don’t need me preaching. You have a lot to take
in. I’m sure Jodu will waste no time throwing you out onto the battlefield. I
need to touch you. Is this okay?”
it matter if I say no or not?”
smiled at him. “You are the first one to ask that. I won’t touch you if you
feel uncomfortable but I would really like to make sure you are healthy. If I
find something wrong Jodu will pay to fix it.”

She gestured to his cock. “I will have to remove your loincloth.”
removed his loincloth and looked at his impressive size cock. “Well…your people
are certainly gifted in this area aren’t you.” She checked him for hernias then
put his loincloth back on. She wrote something done on her electronic tablet.
“You are in very good health, Syth. You have a small burn on your back. I’m
guessing from the stun pulse of the gun, other than that you are fine.” She put
her things away. She walked up to him and looked him in the eyes. “Do what
Xyloc instructs you to do. He is an excellent trainer of toy soldiers. Learn
from him and survive. I wish this fate wasn’t thrust upon you, but it has been.
If you want to live you must do well on the battlefield.”

you earn for Jodu, the more rewards he gives you. In a fucked up sense you are
lucky that you have a chance to be a toy soldier. At least you have a chance to
improve your living conditions. Bait, fodder, pleasure and domestic slaves
aren’t afforded this opportunity.” Xyloc unchained Syth. “You are going to stay
in here until I come and get you for practice.” He left for a moment then came
back with an electronic tablet. “Pay attention. I want you to get all your
technology shock out of the way so we can focus on your training. The images
you will see…” He clicked on the tablet.

this planet. The images will cycle through several times. I would suggest not
throwing this, eating or fucking it. This will provide entertainment during
your stay here. When you have adjusted I will show you how to fully operate it.
For now just sit on your bed and watch the images.” Xyloc left the room. He
locked the door so Syth couldn’t get out.
sat on the bed and looked at the images on the screen. All of these images were
real. He became confused and scared as image after image of things he had never
seen flashed on the screen. He had no idea what any of that stuff was or even
how this small piece of metal was able to show him images in the first place.
