NaNo 2011: Chapter 9 – Reavers and King

The Barrows hawk soared above the grey mists covering Castle Whitefall, looking for new hunting grounds.  She had been driven from her nest a few days ago by an army of creatures, creatures that she did not understand.  They were unnatural, and she did not want to be near them.  They were large, grey-skinned monsters, […]

NaNo 2011: Chapter 8 – Eulogy

The next several weeks passed by in a blur for Cameron and Idriys.  Idriys could not shake the image of the room, with that haunting spirit reaching out for Evelyn.  It fell to Idriys to tell Cameron, unconscious for nearly all of the night’s happenings, what had happened after he awoke; Cameron was beside himself […]

NaNo 2011: Chapter 7 – Josiah’s Folly

Author’s Note: No, there was no post yesterday.  I am far-enough ahead on my wordcount right now that I decided to take a day off from writing, which on the whole was good for me.  I may do it again in the future.  And now back to our regularly scheduled content. Idriys looked up from […]

NaNo 2011: Chapter 6 – Spy

Author’s note: I made a slight error in yesterday’s post when I stated that Idriys could not do magic or use Tao.  In fact, Idriys is a fully-capable magician.  Yesterday’s post has been updated to reflect this fact, but I wanted to make sure that no one was confused by this point in the future. […]

NaNo 2011: Chapter 5 – Friend

The next morning came in a slow, dreary fashion, as though angry at the world for insisting that it cater yet again to the whims of nature.  Grey mists crawled along the ground, whorling and eddying against the walls of the castle, faint tendrils creeping up the battlements and down the stairs into the dungeons.  […]

NaNo 2011: Chapter 4 – Cameron

As the day progressed, things in Castle Whitefall began to assume a façade of normalcy.  Percival the Troll finished shoveling his dung, and brought the three prisoners their breakfast.  The breakfast was not exactly hot, nor was it particularly appetizing, but it was filling. The Duke, still in a state of mental disarray, decided the […]

NaNo 2011: Chapter 3 – The Duke and the Physician

At the same moment that Percival was defending his right to shovel cow dung without being interrupted, Lord Edmond Hargreaves, Duke of Whitefall, his wife, the Lady Duchess Chantal Hargreaves, and Ser Robert Mariner of Kreogsward, Knight Protectorate of the Crown, Chief Warlock of the Royal Parliament, and personal friend and adviser to the White […]

NaNo 2011: Chapter 2 – The Eagle

The prisoner who spoke was Josiah Burroughs, also known as the Eagle.  He was one of the most infamous criminals in the White Kingdom, and yet most people actually knew very little about him.  Rumors abounded, of course, and some of them were true.  It was generally accepted, for example, that he was an exceedingly […]

NaNo 2011: Chapter 1, Part 2

I am now 4.152% finished with my story. Here’s part 1 if you missed it. In general I think I’m just going to do one post per day, probably sometime in the evenings, but I did two today. Because I felt like it, OK? Gosh! Chapter 1 – Percival (continued) Percival was not the only […]

NaNo 2011: Chapter 1 – Percival

Author’s Note: Welcome to the start of NaNo 2011! If you missed my earlier post on the matter, this is my first time doing NaNo, and I’m going to be posting my progress on the story as I go along. The important thing to remember is that I don’t actually know how the story is […]
