FFC #109 - July Update & Return of DoD

Posted July 11th, 2023 at 04:24 PM by TGRF
TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #109

If there's one thing writing these FFCs has taught me (and probably others as well), it's that I cannot be trusted in my predictions of what is to come.

I've learned to give things time to change - at least a week - before I make any announcements about what fan fiction is or is not coming. This has worked for the most part, keeping me from making wild predictions based on a single day of interest (or lack thereof).

For that reason, when, back in June, I lost all interest in the writing of Dawn of Darkness, my latest fan fiction, I gave things a week before calling it. During that week, I had absolutely zero interest in the story. It was 100% dead. I had turned to my novels, and had no desire to return to DoD. So I called it. I said DoD was likely shelved, and that no fan fiction was currently in the works.

I did give myself one caveat, saying that I could get a new idea for the story...

Thank You!

Well and truly met!

Over the last several days, I have been obsessed with the creation of a new unit for induction into the SoV. I have been extremely self-indulgent about it, and pestered many of you with my constant revisions. You have all been very kind to me through it all.

I vaguely recall going through a similar process prior to Kha's induction. Then, too, the Community was nothing but kind and supportive.

So I am taking this opportunity to say "thank you" to you all for indulging me for all these years - and in anticipation of the unfortunate necessity for your continuing to do so in the future.

Thanks so much!

An AoA Map Competition?!

Posted July 10th, 2023 at 02:24 PM by truth
AoA Map Competition

...so we know that AoA didn't happen, but @GeneralRolando has made wall terrain pieces compatible with the ones shown in the AoA campaign. That means we need maps and GeneralRolando is running a competition. The requirements are quite loose, and both competitive and more story-based maps are welcome (with their own judging categories). July 31 is the deadline, so check out the contest thread to see the full details.

After the contest is over, he plans to create a pdf booklet with all entries, so even if you don't win, your map should still get some love!

Edgedancer: Workable but Flawed

TGRF Reviews: Edgedancer

I generally read whatever introductory material there is before a story, and I'm glad I do so, because the introduction to the third book in the Stormlight Archive, Oathbringer, contained a suggestion to read a short novella which took place between books two and three. That novella was Edgedancer.

I did some research on how required the story was. One review said that it dealt with an important plot point, which Oathbringer otherwise skimmed over. I didn't want to unjustly find fault with anything I planned on reviewing, so a few days later, I acquired Edgedancer from the library and settled down to read.

5: Amazing, above flawless.
4: Flawless, but doesn't really stand out.
3: Might have some issues, but works fine.
2: Has some issues which might detract from the media.
1: Flawed, bring the media down noticeably.

Title: Edgedancer
Author: Brandon Sanderson...
