I hope it is alright to post a thread here.
Nearly 10 years after I became part of the Drachenfels Roleplay Community and became part of an incredible story, I have taken up the courage to write the story of my main character Tarragon Slayer.

To make it available to everyone, I have placed Part 1 and Part 2 on a blog.
I am hoping very much to get comments, reactions, criticism. I am not native English, so I expect to make spelling and language mistakes. But if anyone spots inconsistencies in the story, that I find important as well.

Of course anyone is welcome to read it just for the sake of reading a (hopefully) nice story.

I am praying to Joseph Conrad, the patron saint of all exophon writers that I will do this well :cool

Thanks on beforehand for any help.

I got busy since you first post this thread so I am just now reading the first part and I find it very enjoyable. I notice the care you take in describing the home and the items in it. Is this a reflection of UO housing and the thought so many put into the small details of house deco?

*giggles* Thank you!
Actually, I find it very hard to describe things in a story, so I am very glad you like it.
If I could do without descriptions, count on it, I would :P
But since I want this story to be "real" and definitely "good", I do my best giving descriptions where I think they are meaningful.

While writing, I tell myself at certain parts... people will want to know what this place, that person, that object looks like.
And then I exert myself to write the details, not too few, but not too many either.

A new Chapter to the Story

EDIT: Had to make a small adjustment to the year of the battle.
I should learn to count.
Sorry!
