The Lady of the Marshes

Amarantha Dyuaaxchs

My epic. So to speak. A long poem that actually has a plot, and my favorite completed work. Some people seem to find it odd that I have it memorized. The tune is a slightly mangled version of 'Hush, Little Baby.' After I wrote it, it seemed to have a bit of an environmental theme. Now and again, I try to think how I could make the rhythm a little smoother.

The Traveler: Light's First Triumph

Sarah Eckstein

'My only real fault was a desire for adventure. ...I'm sorry to say that wish came true...' Her family was murdered. She was chased from her home. As a new soldier in the military she was abused and dispised by the superiors she planned to betray. She forced herself to endure four years under The Council's ranks in hopes of destroying thier tyrannical rule for good. ...She failed. In trying she destroyed any chance of creating a future for herself she had had. But out of the ashes, she became something more... A guardian of the Oracle and a Knight of the Light, by some whim of fate Sarah Summers has suddenly been charged with protecting billions of worlds from a monster and saving what little hope is still left. Her first assignment: stop a century-old war before Chaos can completely erupt. ...Yeah, piece of cake.

Dragons Within

Martha Cundiff

After two revisions with the help of my creative writing class, I open my Wyvern’s Library with “Dragons Within.” It’s an allegory, as my philosophy that everything is an allegory still stands, showing how a teenage boy struggles with his own dragon. I hope you like it, and please comment as to your own interpretation of the symbols and allegory is. Of course I’m not going to come right out and tell you. Where’s the fun in that?

In the Alley of the Aethe

This piece was done for the collaborative forums, for an experiment in writing fantasy of the normal, daily lives of citizens of the city of Mitha. It is a brief glimpse into the life of a merchant, of his dreams and hopes, and of his struggles.

Umbra - Chapter 2 (approx. 12 pages)

Ute Fuerst

This is the second chapter, where Umbra comes to Athalis in search of the mages who might be able to help her. It's been through my personal third revision, and I think from here on I may need outside input, so criticize away! I am considering to elaborate the last few paragraphs with the party and some samples of conversation to give some more depth and introduction to the characters. (revised 07/2004)

War of the Twelve Kingdoms, Chapter 01

John Blanchard

The beginning of the tale. This story is about the kingdom of Nerasi and their allies. It is about their struggle to survive, and beat back the oncoming tide. They must fight an evil king, and end his terrifying rule, and his war. It is also about the struggles of two young males, and their adventures. (Editing again...needs it...sue? >P...also anyone from Furcadia, might recognize the name 'Tetra' this is a legend I wrote for the guild...or rather, am writing.)
