This is another a series of interconnected fantasy short stories which are all about an Elf Ranger and his Tiefling daughter.

Essentially the stories are about the love between a father and his daughter.

This story is how Ronnath finds the girl that he ends up adopting.

I hope you enjoy it.

This is a simple fantasy story about a trio of explorers deep in the bowels of an underground maze.

They were sent to explore and map the maze by a king, after discovering the complex.

The trio end up encountering a primal beast of the elements and things go from bad to worse in a matter of moments.

I will be using the characters created here in more upcoming stories.


2016 is all but done. I have to say this year has been one of the most unusual and entertaining – both good and bad – that I can ever remember.

2017 is going to be interesting to say the very least.

This year saw a lot less writing for me, although I did keep up with my New Mutant Monday series. I only wrote a couple of short stories and even though I did start work on a mystery novel, I was pretty disappointed in how it went.

The question that serves as the title for this post came from d-Infinity Live! super-fan El Sijo, and ended up being what I consider the most provocative question asked during last night's episode, "Let's Play Orcs". The question seems simple at the face of it, but after the hour long discussion I had with my co-hosts on Orcs, I found it to be the one that I was thinking about most after I stopped broadcasting last night.

Well, so much for NaNoWriMo.

There is no chance I’ll meet the goal this year. I’ll be dropping out of it and working on my untitled novel without thinking about the deadline this contest imposes.

The reason is I have been too busy at work to be able to write! And with me training my students three nights a week now, and then gaming on Friday night, that really eats into my writing time.
