Dragon's Inn Archives
alt.dragons-inn is a newsgroup devoted to fantasy writing. A group of people, either working through email or working directly off the threads in the newsgroup, can write their own fantasy stories; each person is responsible for one (or more) character(s). One person is the editor-- he or she generally knows where the story is going and can integrate the various parts. But this sort of writing keeps you on your toes, since you can never be entirely sure what the others in your group are going to write. It's actually a lot of fun, and it's nice to expand one's creativity like this. I started writing in the newsgroup in the summer of 1998, and hopefully I'll continue for quite some time. You can find out more about the newsgroup at http://www.dragons-inn.org.
Melyda is the first character I made for alt.dragons-inn. She's a bookseller and, hopefully, the new librarian for the Bard's Hall. This story covers her arrival in the city of Montfort and the strange adventure that befell her during the Festival.
This story is the product of...well, a lot of people--including myself, Patrick Ocampo, Daniel Conant, Mary Stantial, and others. Which means it's copyrighted by us, so don't reprint and/or change it...at least, not without talking to us first. My characters, btw, are Melyda, Sammel, and Chaer.
This is a story in progress. A group of adventurers are travelling to a distant village to find out why a young woman has changed into a unicorn. The characters are:
Ceridon, Linna, Garber, Hathor (Sarah Heiner)
To be continued!
Another story in progress. And another story for which I am editor. *wry grin* Melyda, Sammel, and Chaer (from Melyda's Story), along with some new friends, are heading to the territory of the Delphines, Chaer's people, to deal with some very pesky pirates. The characters so far are:
Melyda, Sammel, Chaer, Channi (Sarah Heiner)
Part 1. An Unexpected Arrival.
To be continued!
Email me with comments about the stories and suggestions to improve my writing!
