An inn is a place to rest, a place to talk and share stories, or a place to find adventures, a starting ground for quests and legends.

In this world, at least. To Erin Solstice, an inn seems like a medieval relic from the past. But here she is, running from Goblins and trying to survive in a world full of monsters and magic. She’d be more excited about all of this if everything wasn’t trying to kill her.

But an inn is what she found, and so that’s what she becomes. An innkeeper who serves drinks to heroes and monsters–

Actually, mostly monsters. But it’s a living, right?

This is the story of the Wandering Inn.

Updates every Tuesday and Saturday.

    • Good question! If you have a link to it online, just post it in the comments of the latest chapter. Otherwise, you could attach it to the comment manually I think…let me know if you want me to put it in the fanworks section!

      • I’ll put it here, it’s not online so I’ll put here..
        A lonely king sits upon a broken throne.
        His kingdom and dreams are dust in his hands, the sands rise to consume them both.
        Hollow dreams and broken memories plague him, hope is gone, his people fade.
        A lonely king sits upon a broken throne.
        His kingdom starves, his friends weep, the king still sleeps.
        Footsteps echo in the empty hall, his heart stirs, will he answer the secret call.
        He sees reason and truth, he sees his heart revealed.
        The king sits upon his throne.
        His friends gather, a message is sent and steel drawn, a new flame is borne.
        His toes gather and armies march, will he survive the coming war.
        A king sits upon a broken throne.
        The earth is shaken and blood is spilt, the lightning burns the past away.
        A war is won, a heart is broken as chains are forged, new slaves are born.
        Flos sits upon his throne.
        His people many, his army vast, his fire burning once again.
        He marches forth, a nation is broken, it’s city in ruins, a great foe he beheads.
        The world knows he is awake.
        Flos the King Of Destruction sits upon a mighty throne.

  1. I love this so much! I wished you’d stop teasing us with a certain minotaur though…

    I am worried that these questions will be taken as criticisms.


    Why did the “prev chapter” and “next chapter” buttons at the top of the page go away? It is now mildly inconvenient to get to the latest chapter when I’m compulsively reloading the page until it becomes public

    Is there any way you could make the chapters public at a set time? Unless you already do… I guess I’m just bothered by being awake at 3:00 in the morning and wanting to read the latest chapter xD

  2. I have a few question about the dungeon, in 1:40 one of the adventurers thinks to himself that the first chunk of the dungeon that was found could be the burial place of one of the Old Things, it makes his blood run cold when he thinks on it. What are the Old Things? are they truly monstrous threats? will they be mentioned again? and will one or two of them be locked in the dungeon, waiting to rise against the world? Or will the dungeon be a resting place for a dark and evil god that’s still sleeping?

    • Hi Miguel! Wow, thanks for the page of doodles! I’d love to put it on the Fanworks page. Let me know if you’d like me to add it there and under what name you’d like to be credited/want me to link to an artist’s page. Thanks for drawing and reading the story!

  3. Any sammich (sandwich) monsters guarding the inn, Pirateaba? Just an idea, to help Erin keep thieves away from the pantry… 😀

  4. Hi!
    Dont have much to say, but I just wanted to tell you how much I have enjoyed your writing. Just caught after 3 weeks of what feels like non-stop reading and wow what a ride! 🙂

    I am generally a huge fan of world-building and you have really crafted a wonderful world here , the contrasts between the different cultures (although a bitch tropey at times i guess?) comes across so well, this paired with characters that feel very real and have very satisfying developments makes it such a treat! I am “secretly” hoping for some more Erin growth, she feels a bit stagnated at times, that might just be her playing up the ditzy tho 🙂

    Im now a proud patreon member and cant wait for the next chapters 😀

  5. Hi Pirataba,
    Just read the first volume (on kindle) and absolutely loved it! Cannot wait for the rest to be released in the same format (although I may well dip into the next one here!). Please continue with the great work and looking forward to reading the rest ☺️

    • Also, do you know when you’ll be able to get the next volume up on kindle? No worries if not, just seriously excited for the next one 😊

  6. What is your stance on fanfiction and/or crossovers with your story? If you are okay with fanfiction about your story, what are some guidelines and/or limitations (ex. things/situations you don’t want happening to your characters)?

    • Hey Curious, my stance on fanfiction is like most author’s. It’s not something I’d ever go after someone over unless they were claiming credit for the story itself. Or, I dunno, doing something completely awful with it. Hard to tell what that might be. Fanfiction’s fanfiction! You do you. Just write well and with passion!




  8. Hi, I am new here and have a question. How do I read this without using the Worldpress reader as advised at the beginning?? Read the book already with my Kindle but this Scrolling is getting old. Any advice ??
    Thanks !! 😉

  9. While I waited for the story to load for the non Patreon readers I did search for what the corresponding letter would reference. I thought that it would be for Reynolds the Butler, but this one about Bird was amazing.

    What I believe to have figured out.
    Blank= Erin, though later (in book two) R dropped and merged into the blanks
    D= Doctor
    E= Emperor
    G= Goblin (five so far: Rags, Garen, Goblin adventures, Lord, Tremborag)
    H= Horns of Hammerand
    K= King Flos
    M= Magnolia
    M= Mrsha
    N= Niers (the Titan)
    R= Royoka
    S= Selys
    T= Toren

  10. not sure where to add my comments, but here goes.

    was reading through the glossary, and came across two corrections:

    Illphres – Fix spelling: “Wistram UNDER..” –> “Wistram UNTIL..”

    Mossbears – “Mothbears are larger…” –> “Mossbears are larger…”

    and lastlly
    Ishkr – What’s his secret?
