I've no idea when I wrote this one. Sometime in University? It was for a character background for a Dark Sun game. Strange that two of my stories up here are for thief characters: I almost never play them. A fairly naff one, I'm afraid (lots of 'tell' and no 'show') so this one will probably be one of the first to be removed if I ever hit my max number of stories.
I guess subconscious inspirations for style for the first part were the Harvard Lampoon's 'Bored of the Rings', Pratchett, and any number of less skilled fantasy humour authors. But then halfway through it changes to boring textbook style (inspirations: any non-O'Reilly computing manual). Needs a rewrite. Apologies. I admit it's naff. First attempt, so cut me some slack, OK? It took me two afternoons. I expect it to be part of a trilogy of independent stories about the same thief:'The lions', 'The Which', and 'The guarderobe.' (With humblest apologies to CS Lewis!)'The Which' will be a music/adventuring group (think 'the Who'). I know nothing about the band 'the Who', so I've not a lot to go on for in-jokes there. Let me know if you have any good ideas.'The guarderobe'... look it up. No idea if I spelled it right: Word's spellchecker shrugs it's shoulders and underlines the word in red. Tell you what: if it's spelled different to how you've seen it written, it's because I've used the older form of the word. Like 'shoppe' and 'custardde' and stuffe.Actually, ignore what I said about cutting me some slack. I'd LOVE it if someone took the time to dissect it completely, point out the typos and bad grammar, suggested more fitting turns of phrase, better plot twists, ways to shorten it...
I don't have much to say about this part. You probably wouldn't be here if you hadn't liked the other parts of my novel.
This is an excerpt from the novel I am working on. The novel is tentatively named 'The Books of Narevyn'. It's classified as 'epic fantasy' for some retarded reason. I disagree with that classification because I don't want to be pigeon-holed. Please read and review. Let me know what you think. I also have copies of this on my DeviantArt page and my Myspace page.

This is the shortest bit. Now I've got to write up the screenplay I did from Koh Kah'ehv's viewpoint (difficult in a screenplay) and finish writing the section for the second half of the story. Fun!
This is the story of person with a bad habit. This series is going to be long, I think.

Wyvern's Project 5, chapter three. Introducing Gary, and one of Mother Kat's parishioners.
Chime is a character I have slowly developed for 10 years and used as a character in various table top games ever since. This story has been floating around in my mind for a long time and one night I finally went and wrote it down.
Yes, I do a lot with thieves and so forth, but that's because they make the most interesting characters. Welp, this I came up with one day while playing Ice Windell 2. There's a book called 'The Adventurer's Guide' and one of the chapters listed in it is 'How to get the most out of your party's thief.' This is true for every adventuring game, no matter if it's LARP or D&D or even a video game system game.
This is a novel I started in school for an assignment.. though I've had the idea forever. I'm going to finish it sometime and it's still being put together. This is a rough draft.. so I definatly know there are things to be fixed.
Padpaw, a Lightfoot thief must flee her city and find her king to beg for freedom from an unwanted betrothal. Unfortunately, she is captured by a Romul warrior, a great enemy of her people.
Though I usually hate cliches, such as making my first halfling a thief, you've got to give me some credit for the other half of this little duo.
This is the first chapter of a larger story based in the city of Jek, following an aray of characters and their own stories and problems while a much larger problem that will effect all of the denizens of the city simmers underneath.
