But Wait... There's More!

If you've been following the free weekly web fiction, then you've probably already noticed that today brings you the fourth installment of Ed Greenwood's "Guns of Alkenstar," a mystery set deep in the steaming, clanging depths of Alkenstar's legendary Gunworks. The fourth installment—but not the final one.

That's right—while web fiction stories are normally broken into no more than four parts, in this case we couldn't help ourselves. In addition to being written by master world-builder and storyteller Ed Greenwood (who you may remember as the creator of the Forgotten Realms), this story was just too big an adventure for its original run of four weeks. Rather than cut it down, we thought it best to relax our guidelines and give it room to breathe, using the extra space to continue its cascade of corruption and gun smoke in a so-far-relatively-unexplored nation.

"Guns of Alkenstar" will continue for two more episodes, reaching its conclusion two weeks from now. And lest you think that we can't possibly keep up the barrage of awesome, it's my pleasure to officially announce that this story will be followed by a sneak preview of Plague of Shadows and a new four-part story by no less than Monte Cook, one of the other masters of modern gaming. (What can I say? We aim to please.)

So check out the latest episode of Ed's Alkenstar odyssey, and as always, hit us up on the comments thread and let us know what you think!

Viva no writing term limits !


I have a request regarding the Web Fiction.

As the fiction is in a blog format the chapters appear in the wrong order, which is a bit of a pain to navigate if you are trying to read an entire story in one go. Is there any way that, when a new chapter is put up, a link could be placed to it at the bottom of the previous chapter?

Making the Web Fiction archives easier to navigate is on the to-do list, but your suggestion sounds like a nice stopgap. I'll see what I can do.

Call me the WORST PAIZO FAN/LICENSEE EVAR, but I'd completely forgotten about the Web Fiction. Color me ashamed, informed, and about to tear through all the Alkenstar Ed can spit out.

MOAR GUNZ!

That is all. :)
