Interlude – Another Time

June 7, 2024

The sky was spitting blood down over the treetops that splintered like broken glass as the UH-1P helicopters roared over the forest. Below, a thousand flickers of movement in the dense jungle cover gave the gunner too many targets. Not a single one actionable. The ground was alive; the radio was spitting almost as much […]

When he opened his eyes for a moment, he heard his consort singing, and it distracted him from reality. As she had surely calculated. The man awoke in his bed of pale greenish-yellow sheets that seemed as though someone had woven them from blades of tall grass in the summer. He brushed at the sheets, […]

(I am on my monthly break! I’ll be back on the 1st of June!)     A [Princess] was murdering people with her bare hands. She was crushing heads to paste, choking out her enemies. When they screamed, ‘no, please, have mercy!’ She beat them down with a frying pan. The bloody carnage was sickening. […]

Seats. The seat they offered Lyonette in The Adventurer’s Waystation, one of Invrisil’s best restaurants, was an exclusive booth in a private room. Not pristine; it had well-worn leather. But leather without cracks and with a strangely pale-yellow color. Lightning Wyvern leather; it actually had the opposite effect you might expect. Instead of generating static […]

The first thing the Horns did was make sure Ceria was actually okay. They hustled her off, trying to get anything out of her. “Are you hurt? Ceria? Ceria!” Yvlon shook her so hard that Ceria’s head rattled until Pisces and Colth stopped Yvlon. Amerys floated after them with more of a scientific interest in […]

(I am on vacation in another country! I will be taking my break early and have a chapter on the 27th for you!)     Did you know what the Claiven Earth reminded Ceria Springwalker, a half-Elf, of? Not home, that was certain. Hah! She walked through the balmy forest underneath vast trees grown in […]

10.10 E (Pt. 2)

April 6, 2024

(This chapter was divided into two parts! Check to see if you’ve read Pt. 1 first!)     Thus, the King of Khelt awoke. He had never truly slept. But his mind had drifted while attending to the minutiae of his duties. That was how it felt. As if he had had a dream, even […]

10.10 E (Pt. 1)

March 20, 2024

(Two chapters were released at the same time! Make sure you’ve read 10.08 (Pt. 1) before this one!)     It took Erin Solstice a full day and a bit to get to Elvallian, but she made it without further incident. The Selphids who had split from Hoisq’s force needed patching up and reclassifying as […]

10.08 (Pt. 1)

On the road to Elvallian, a trade road that passed along the great jungle of Baleros, beneath huge cliff faces, and all the way from beaches on each side of the continent, there was a city. If you took the road from Talenqual past Yoill, you’d get to the city of Ramok. It was an […]

Interlude – Saliss the Architect

March 13, 2024

This was a tale about Saliss of Lights, not Onieva Oliwing. It was about a Drake who didn’t sleep well. You’d think that wouldn’t be a problem for a Named-rank adventurer used to venturing into the wilds of the world and fighting, sometimes for days on end, without sleep. Saliss had done that. Of course, […]

(Read this blog about important changes to the update schedule of The Wandering Inn. Of all the blog posts, this is the one to read.)     There is a box. A hidden box; one of the hardest places in the world to enter, let alone spy into. Kingdoms could break their magic on the […]

(I am on break till March 5th! Expect an update to the Book 12 chapters and a blog about the changes before then. Wish me luck!)     The Wandering Inn was laundering real money. The Silver Swords were starving in the New Lands of Izril. Nerrhavia was teaching herself to play the piano. Roshal […]

“Gaze upon my mastery of magic and despair,” called [Archmage] Igawiz from the Steps of Challenges. He gazed down, and the [High Mage] removed the veil so all might see her face for the first time since she had come to Wistram. She lifted a hand, and the aether in the air pooled until even […]

Day 19 of the Consortium of Enterprise Expeditions   The expedition was rapidly running out of food and magic. That was, as Ylawes saw it, a two-headed Hydra. Yes, mistakes had been made. It was clear to him now that Merchant Yorrned had made mistakes in the planning of this expedition. Considerable ones ranging from […]

The closer you got to the New Lands of Izril, the more you realized that the changes to the continent weren’t just in the nations arriving, the political turmoil, or even the land itself. It was affecting all of Izril. The raising of so much landmass, nearly a fifth the size of the original continent, […]

Snow was still billowing down like great, thick blankets of white fabric draping themselves over Liscor. A final white sheet for the winter; a lie from the skies. After all—the days after would not be so snowy. The final month of winter, the sixteenth and last month of the year, was a battle between the […]
