Welcome to my twisted imaginings. Here you can look through some of my shorter stories and see what I’ve come up with over the years. The Seattle at Night stories are based of off Whitewolf’s World of Darkness RPG’s and I’ve tried my best to change them slightly to avoid getting in trouble (Vampire Lord instead of Prince, etc…) But any fans of the game will see resemblances immediately. Other short stories to follow will be probably linked to some science fiction space odyssey stories, fantasy stories based off of Dungeons & Dragons, and anything else I find to throw in here. So have fun and beware, you might not be able to tear yourself away
Seattle At Night
Welcome to Seattle
This is an introduction to some of the main characters that will appear in the following short stories. it serves to set the stage on some of them and how they work with one another in this strange world of darkness and magic. While it doesn’t go into detail on some of the elements (like the fae and the Cretaed) it does give the reader a basis for the main four that you will see most often. Enjoy!
Mystery In Seattle
Something has killed a young female mage, and it looks like it was a vampire. Can Shadow find this rogue vampire before he kills again? Will the Mages end the truce if he can’t? Come see the dark side of this wonderful city and the dark heroes that try and protect it from the monsters all around you.
Adventures in Fantasy
In fantasy I have put a lot of the quick stories I have done for other players, usually as gifts or to explain how they met. Here are some of the more popular ones I’ve done for players.
Through the Light
This little gem was a story I did for one of our players when he died in our campaign. I set up the players as “Keys” to eventually defeat Tiamat. We had created our own world of true Gods and lesser Gods and rewritten the back story of the five headed dragon God. So for Christmas I wrote what happened between the time he died and when we raised him. It was really fun to do and was well received.
This short story was written for a couple in our 4th Edition game. The story is one of finding love and sacrifice, and was awesome to write up. We actually played this scene with our characters, and it was an emotional night to be sure.
The Meeting of the Gods
This Gem was written for our homebrew world and is a fun little piece that was inspired by Margaret Weis’s writing (When Raistlin watches the Gods discuss their business) It gives the players a quick look at the Gods and Goddess’s they worship and lends an air of humanity to the Gods. (Massive credit to Virginia Davis for the Pantheon of her world)
Here is where I’ve put some of the short stories I’ve written based in my steampunk world of Eather’an. They mix magic with the concept of clockwork machines and airships, driven by steam and coal burning power. Trains (called gearrails), cars (gearwheels) and even tanks (geartanks) all exist, as do magic spells and mind powered abilities.
Light comes from Darkness
This story is about the end of the First war in Tamia and shows how the elves had enslaved the faeries to syphon their magic. It’s a small piece but the names you see could hint at other famous figures in this world someday.
Stand at Arimandrian
This one is a short story about a famous battle, during the Great War, and tells of the bravery and heroism of the elves against the dwarves. It’s an odd piece, that the casual reader might not get, but anyone who is fantasy geared may like it. The story flips from the view of the dwarves to the elves at every “chapter break” (not really chapters but you’ll see) and really gets into the drive of both attacker and defender in a way that is rarely shown.
