SciFi & Fantasy Fiction and Stories by Ian Plumb

Ian found as a student that the only subject he had a knack for was English. Having left the pigeon-hole of "student" half a lifetime ago writing these days is simply for pleasure. These stories are very loosely based on the characters and events from a role-playing game that our gaming group played between 2001 and 2005. If you've played an RPG then you'll know that these games seldom follow the kind of narrative that a work of fiction requires. So I've taken the events that transpired and the characters that were involved in those events and I've worked them into something approaching a coherent tale. Many of the events in these stories never actually transpired in the game -- they've been added to flesh out the story and give the characters greater depth and influence.

I’ve enjoyed my stay. I’ll be back to read more later.

Thanks for tagging me as a favorite. I’m really enjoying your story as well. I have a question. Does this work have an overall title? I’d like to mention your story on my title page, but I’m not sure what to call it.

:-) Ian Plumb replies: "You are welcome!
These chapters form part of "The Chronicle of The Players of Cartélan." There are actually a lot of chapters from before this time that I haven’t bothered putting up. There’s another forty already written that I’ll start putting up soon. The first 48 chapters form the first complete story, "The Assault of the Whitespore." I haven’t named the second story yet."
