Emilie Finn

A brief sketch of the founding of Lauralia and the history of the different provinces thereof.

Een'Corweai ~ What We Must

Aislynn Diago

This is a snippet from a novel I've been writing for five years. The rest is burried under plot and character development, for the moment. A bit of background information: this takes place on a planet called Een'Corweai, in the land of Kyrehk, which tends to be seen by other nations as 'evil'. Of course, no land in itself is evil, and the rest you can decide for yourself

The Forsaken

Colin M. Agnew

Fleu du Elgoria Part II: Chapter I

Jon Bretwalda Malek

The continuing saga of the forces of Righteousness. More of a focus on the Immortals of the tale, though a few favourites are here. *NOTE* For those of you well versed in the ways of Fleu du Elgoria, Captain Aries' name has been changed to Captain Nauthiz, so as to avoid any cheesy symbolism!

The Young Foxes

My first experiment with present tense, this was originally a historical fiction piece I wrote over a year ago set in post- Roman Britain, inspired by a scene from Rosemary Sutcliff's 'The Lantern Bearers.' With some change in names and details, it fit wonderfully into my fantasy world. The potential difficulty is that the political background to it is rather complicated, so I'll try to outline the basics as clearly as I can:- The region where this all takes place is called Tabid-Ar, a vast wilderness north of most settled nations. Semi-nomadic (& semi-Germanic/Celtic) tribes share the land with creatures both mundane and magical.- The main characters are Scyldjmen from Scyldja, and their two main enemies are the Ridilaun, led by Sworran Daor, and the Barrans, led by Regin.- Scyldja has managed to hold an advantage in the past years by commanding the fear and loyalty of many lesser chieftains, but recently the Barrans launched a ferocious invasion of their territory. Vorgremar, the Scyldjman chief who declares himself High King of all Tabid-Ar, found himself in a dangerously delicate predicament and eagerly bought peace...but oh, at such a cost...

The Reign of Chaos

Cameron Willis

Well, as with the 'Battle' story, this world is dead, and this story is more for character. Jak is the best villain I've ever invented (mainly because I've never made any others) and is really quite cool, so enjoy!

The Greedy King

Linda Lindqvist

A short little faerie tale taht I wrote in my journal late one night. Being obsessive little me, I wrote out four possible endings for it, but this is the one I like the most. Anyway. It's really short, so read and enjoy!

Lorendain Chronicles 2: Bound

Angela Markham

An epic story of love and war across worlds. A war between gods stands on the verge of destroying their creation. Meanwhile, two on the run from destruction seek refuge in modern-day America, with drastically different results. Modern living merges with the fantastical in this tale that spans two very different worlds.

The Wildcard Factor

Brandy May

This is it, the story that started it all. This is the first real short-story I ever wrote, and a condensed (for length purposes) version was published in the school magazine. The Wildcard Factor shows that Murphy's Law still holds true in space.

The Gowans and The Grasses

Neil Alexander

In a post-apocalypse world, a man (the protagonist) and his father are road haulers in electric powered trucks, carrying trade, news and supplies from town to town. The protagonist's father is killed through treachery and his reaction changes the world itself.
