It has been a busy couple months! In response to unexpected delays on the print publishing side, but with general proudness and hype, we are happy to announce that our first FoxFireFiction novel is now available here on our website!
In preparation for Talmenor’s sourcebook release, have a sneak peek at two of our brand new Cleric Domains! These are meant to be used with the 5e ruleset.
This domain is common among wuyon’mar clerics, as well as to followers of the gods Voice-in-Dark, Mirquiel, and Talmenor. These clerics focus on the manipulation of water and ice, viewing it as the divine blood of the world. Their powers can heal or hurt with the capricious peculiarity that is water’s.
You may see some things disappear or break over the next few days. This is because we’re in the process of re-hauling the website structure in order to launch the FoxFireFiction and Talmenor brands. No content will be taken down, but some of it might be (intentionally) harder to find. Thank you for your patience!
Here it is! On this page, you can find links to all FoxFireFiction games that are in active beta or have been officially released. As of this posting, there are three, each of them HTML5 games that can be played for free right on this website!
We also have a new Contact Us page! For now, this lists all the social media platforms you can find us on, as well as a nifty little donate-through-PayPal link should you, you know, want to donate to us. 😉
Only more than a year since I first announced this effort, the Great Revision is now officially complete!
What is the Great Revision?
The Great Revision effort started in response to me reading over Keelath and Mirium’s various adventures and finding it to be a snarly mess. There were several different versions of them reuniting since Keelath became undead, them breaking up, them coming back together, them breaking up again, and them reassuring each other over various other dramas in the family, most notably Tyrric’s. The Great Revision was also sorely needed after Tyrdan was retooled to be Tyrric, Lellith’s role was swapped out for Alelsa, and Lellith herself got yet another role in the Sunwalker story, which has not yet been revealed.
Most of the work involved editing down existing posts into writing less cringey, as well as reorganizing the ordering of scenes. Some posts switched their places between series and stand-alones as well.
What’s the plan from here?
Oh, I dunno. Filling in some gaps between series still needs to be done, but once that is complete, how about retooling all these adventures to Talmenor and publishing them as an official short story collection? It has certainly crossed my mind…
That’s a lot of writing! Is there a reading list somewhere?
I have finally figured out how to use OBS Studio! Prepare to see more art streams making their way to the Locals and YouTube FoxFireFiction communities in the near future!
For now, have a partial stream of the clean-up phase of the Mirium Sketch (better title to be determined). Fuller-length streams I plan to include on Locals in the future, for the price of $2 a month. You will also get access to an exclusive fans-and-devs community besides just supporting me to continue more work like this. I hope to see you there!
As of May 23rd, 2022, the majority of the links in this post are broken. You can find the associated series here and here instead.
Two new fan fiction series are up! …though I suppose I shouldn’t call them “new”, because they were actually written years ago.
“War Front” introduces the character Azzir, who I hope to expand more in future writings as an Ordinator with a skooma problem.
The second series, “Lives of the Saints“, is quite a long series I will probably turn into a novel at some point. As it is, it’s stretching my Fan Fiction page to the point I’ll need to go about changing the formatting of my blog sooner rather than later! This series introduces the characters of Shizzal (based on a certain other name you might know, Kevaar) and Drai: an outlander Dunmer and an Ashlander who have a mysterious connection to each other. These characters will also probably show up in a later series, since they do come into contact with Azzir, as well as certain other key characters from their own storyline.
Until I figure out the formatting thing, you can find both these series and more like them under Fan Fiction. I’ve also included links to them below, since “Lives of the Saints” is rather long, and the entries aren’t numbered like most of my other series are.
As mentioned aaaaaaall the way back in September 2020, I’ve been wanting to go back over Keelath and Mirium’s posts and bang them into better shape for a while now. I’m thus happy to announce the first part of the Great Revision is now completed, with the series “What Darkness Lies” fully edited and re-ordered to better taste!
Unfortunately this editing has highlighted a problem with my blog software, where the plugin I use to order series on the Fan Fiction page has broken and only lists posts in order of the date they were originally posted instead of the order I’ve specified. I’m still investigating why this happens, but until then, the proper order of these chapters goes like this:
“The Rise of Keelath” has also seen a facelift during this update, with some of the lore behind Keelath’s first adventures now better explained.
Next up in the Great Revision are some posts that interweave with the “Brothers Apart” series. Due to one of the main actors ducking out of this plotline halfway through, I expect most of this editing to be along the lines of fully converting the old storylines of Tyrdan and Lellith into that of Tyrric and Alelsa, as well as explaining just where the true Lellith got off to in the process. Hopefully this will make the Sunwalker story a little more coherent to any of whom have not been following their progress in-game.
Once that is complete, I’m finally casting a eye to converting more material from Discord and forum roleplays into posts along the lines of the new “Awakening” series. So far this mostly involves the Sunwalker family, again, but eventually you may see some old friends from another favorite universe of mine.
Today marks the opening of our second social media community, this time on Discord! Just click the link below (and follow the instructions to create a Discord account if you don’t have one already) to join!
Discord is an instant messaging and voice chat program that is free to join and use. I intend to use this community as a place to connect with fans, collaborate creative works (both art and writing), and help any newcomers to the industry get their first foot in the door.
This supplements our Locals community, which is set up more as a Patreon or Twitter platform. Support us by chipping in $2 a month (more at your discretion) to get access to special content as well as participate in members-only discussions. You can find the link for that here: FoxFireFiction Community (locals.com)
