Those of you who have been privileged to read the stories of Bryan Jay Ibeas, may be familiar with the Near Invincible/Invincible Empire Project, of which I can proudly say that I am a member. For those who do not yet know what the Invincibles are, I strongly suggest you take a look at Bryan's bio and stories, where you will find a better explanation than I could give, and links to other Elfwood members who have made contributions. This is the first of several contributions from me to the 'Near Invincible' section. It is the story of Draxen, a character who made a brief appearance in Near Invincible: Autumn, the third part of a four-part story and, along with Leine, is one of the few Invincibles to hang up his Shakna. I have Bryan's full permission to use the characters and settings from his Invincible world.
Full title: 'Of Heavy Hearts, Big Feet and Why Gnomes NOT Food' Taraiha is one of my RPG characters. Her friend Swifty belongs to Steve Melka and is used with his permission.
This is the story of how my main RP character, Rhomany, came to be who she is today and how she met an elf by the name of Darkblade... (I won't give too much away - you'll find out more about who she is over the next few chapters) It's a co-write with Steve Melka and is meant to run alongside his main character's story. To gain the full effect, you need to begin with Pt I of his story, then alternate between the two. However, both stories will eventually be complete in their own right as well.It's a very ambitious project, especially since it is effectively being 'written into' an established storyline of mine, complete with a lot of background and history... but we'll never know if this format works unless we try it out... The simple route is to just read the parts as a complete story.The complex route If you want to read the two stories as they should be read, here is the order so far:- The Pack Shattered: Pt ILone Wolf: Pt IThe Pack Shattered: Pt II
The saga continues... No links because those of you reading the long route already get it by now - and we're both uploading two stories :O so the links don't exist yet...
This is part of a series of 'Puck' poetry I am writing.. it's one of the few pieces I've written that isn't part of my Calarithyn saga... yet (!)
