Rise of the Sha'noon: Cycle Eight

Pete Anderson

The poem enters its second major part: The Crimson Tear (the first one was called 'The Rose of Ladark'). The gloom of the Forest of Baruk is cheerful in comparison to the devistation of Ladark. Atleast here your greatest fear is a giant jaguar...

The Tragedy of Ganywed and Sir Redolos

Johan Jartelius

Montilin VIII - The Fairway Family Secret

Nicolas Godbout

Outlines Payne's first job for another major character, Oster, a human nobleman. Also marks the unveling of an otherworldly secret that only members of the Fairway family know of. The style i wrote this in (If you're looking for something really specfic, i have to say it's subtle) was meant to ressemble the work of Steven Brust's Vald Taltos series.

Tales of Tenlotte: Arcana and Abstraction Chapters 1-5

Rose Po Campbell

Tenlotte is a world in the far future, a world where magic and technology exist side-by-side. But things are far from harmonious on Tenlotte. Political unrest is rampant in the country of Erom, where the elf that works beside you today might be on the sales block in the slavemarket tomorrow. The ruling class consists of three races: human, volix and malix (a rare and highly regulated hybrid species of human and volix). This is the story of Chela, a young malix. Hers is not a typical Tenlotten life. I have tried to make things as self-explanatory as possible, but there are a few things that will need clarification. #1: Uni is the term used when referring to or speaking of a volix. #2: Bearer and Maker should be read as Mother and Father, respectively. #3: High Royal and High Consort are titles. The High Royal is kind of like the king (not necessarily a man, or even human), and the High Consort is the king's spouse. #4: Kruk and grap (along with any extrapolations) are bad words. Naughty bad words. Not to be repeated in good company kind of words. I think the rest should speak for itself. Please enjoy.

Gutter Fish

Julian 'Llos' Greene

I had to write this story for my Literature class in Grade 10. I really just whipped it off, even faster than I did the English story, 'Forgotten.' A bit more background to this is needed, I guess. The assignment called for me to write an excerpt from the beginning of a chapter that is supposed to belong to a literature era, with the choices being: Victorian, Elizabethan, Romantascist, And something else. I chose Victorian, which it is claimed Charles Dickens was the embodiment of. So, the lord and lady are not there only to attempt to mock the upper class, but to attempt to mock my highschool principal (A Mr. Livingstone. I bear no liking towards that man, I'm afraid) by making the lord have similar characteristics, and the model industry via the lady. Written by: Julian Greene with Harold Worthington, and possibly Bentwood Wentworth the III

Chapter 8: Geoffrey

Petra Prinz

In this chapter, we meet two rather important persons. Of course, none of them is quite what they seem to be... (Note: Thanks to the moderator who pointed me to an excellent website on titles of nobility. This was exactly what I was looking for. I'll read it through and make the appropriate corrections.)

Lithwarian History

Erik Jensen

This text is the translation of a source, edited to suit Elfwood. The map included is made by me. I don't know the original author, nor the patron he sent it to. It seems likely that the author was a Lithwarian. Otherwise, he may simply have known what a Lithwarian patron would expect. In any case, I have included several notes to explain the differences between Lithwarian historical thinking, and what elven and Valorian historians believe to be true. Please Comment.

Chapter One- As Told By Canelda

Kathryn Aliwoode

Here is the start of a novel that's not supposed to be good enough to publish. It's a silly little story for me to write.

The Bard of Springuarde's Court

Joseph Wartick
