Great stuff - a short epilogue after beating Draaien would have been nice btw.
I LOVE "Little Sister"! I took this to a workshop at a con, and the professional writer didn't telll me much in the way of changes (meaning it was well written), but he did say he'd thought I'd have a hard time selling it because it's a first contact (usually science fiction) in a fantasy setting. Of course, I wrote it for Depths of Peril, so I wasn't worried about selling it.

There's some good writing floating around in the background, it'd be great to have it all conveniently collected into a novel form. Or perhaps a series of graphic novels.
Thank you! Glad you liked them.

I think the stories are about 65,000 words total, and fantasy books generally run 100,000 words. It would be a very small book! I'd love for this stuff to be in a book someday, but I think I'll need to write more first.

I'm not sure if you eventually did this, but having the books in order and in HTML format outside the game would be fantastic.

Most of the stories are posted and organized on our main website on the story page.

That is very handy to have, Shadow, I also prefer to print out books like these.
