Tales of Altomia: The Box - Chapter One

Lauren Wiseblade was just trying to make his way in the world; namely, kicking butt, and avoiding having his butt kicked. Yes, he knows it's a girl's name. And yes, he would NOT like you to point that out. Follow Lauren's hilarious adventures with the enchanter Jared Starfist and the Takma Hurdill Mimsy, and how a certain Box caused the creation of a mountain. This chapter shows Jared's unusual entrance into the bar of the Gambling Gnome, Lauren's decision to take up the job and the resulting humiliation of trying to look tough. Note: You might want to read A Brief History of Altomia first before you read any of the Tales of Altomia. You don't have to, and it's usually more fun to find out about this strange world I have devised through the actual stories that the history, but, well, MEH. Also, constructive criticism would be just smashing, guys. Once again, a cookie for Shanra for her very helpful advice.

Tales of Altomia: The Box - Chapter Two

Lauren Wiseblade was just trying to make his way in the world; namely, kicking butt, and avoiding having his butt kicked. Yes, he knows it's a girl's name. And yes, he would NOT like you to point that out. Follow Lauren's hilarious adventures with the enchanter Jared Starfist and the Takma Hurdill Mimsy, and how a certain Box caused the creation of a mountain. This chapter introduces the character of the rather obnoxious Hurdill Mimsy and some more humiliation for Lauren, because I'm that nasty. Note: You might want to read A Brief History of Altomia first before you read any of the Tales of Altomia. You don't have to, and it's usually more fun to find out about this strange world I have devised through the actual stories that the history, but, well, MEH. Also, constructive criticism would be just smashing, guys.

A Brief History of Altomia

In the beginning there was the Canvas, and it was blank... This is the mythological background to my fantasy humour series 'Tales of Altomia'. Find out about the Paintbrush of Pictor Caelestis, how the eleven races came into being, and how two drunk Elves started a ten thousand year war... Update: Some punctuation errors have been cleaned up, as well as some story issues I thought needed fixing. Big hand to Shanra for her awesome advice!

Red Requiem: Welcome to Venim

This is the fifth in a series of poems following the adventures of a Paladin named Tirania through a surreal and troubled world, corrupted by cursed songs. After finding her way out of the Woods of Prominence, Tirania find herself in a land frozen in time; everything is coated in metal; everything is waiting for everything, but nothing will come.

Horse-Drawn Dreams

No one ever notices them pass by. And when they wake the next day, all they remember is the whirl of adventure and the clicking of a horse's hooves...

Red Requiem: Paladin of the Blood-Moon

The second poem of a collection detailing the adventures of a paladin called Tirania, and her quest to free a surreal and troubled world from the grip of several cursed songs. Our heroine rises to the challenge! She sees a ruined world before her, and, her magical sword named Ardentyre in hand, embarks on a journey told time and time again by generations of bards...

Once Upon a Time

A poem about a conversation with a wizard...slightly random, but somehow it makes sense. This is one of the best poems I've wrote so far ^_^

Red Requiem: Into the Woods of Prominence

The fourth of a collection of poems detailing the adventures of a paladin called Tirania, and her quest to free a surreal and troubled world from the grip of several cursed songs. Tirania enters an eerie and mystical forest, only to be met with disgust by the high and mighty trees, who tell her to leave. The only way she can receive their approval is if she can be a human no more...

Red Requiem: Enter Tirania

This is the sixth in a series of poems following the adventures of a Paladin named Tirania through a surreal and troubled world, corrupted by cursed songs. While travelling through the metal swathed land of Venim, she finds the Chanter, who she fought in Skanskaraz. The poem is meant to be winding and interconnected, hence the title, 'Slurred Wires'.

Red Requiem: Hell-Clouds Over Skanskaraz

The third of a collection of poems detailing the adventures of a paladin called Tirania, and her quest to free a surreal and troubled world from the grip of several cursed songs. In this poem, Tirania comes to a land called Skanskaraz, only to find it clouded and desolate. What could've caused it?

Tears of Sardonyx: Kteria - Prologue

After falling through a rift in the space time continuum, Adela Leafshanks must now unravel the Secrets and find the Key to the Door of Space and Things That Make Sense alongside a cast of rather barmy characters. The Galaxy will never be the same...Parts in bold are from Adela's perspective. In this Prologue we find out how Adela enters the rift, as well as her meeting with loopy classmate Aurion Mistytongue. I drew the illustration of Aurion under the pseudonym of Miriam Doyle on my dA gallery. The original image can be found here: http://miriam-doyle.deviantart.com/art/Aurion-Mistytongue-59039984
