You are a hero, Elihu.  A damn hero!

The Sword in the Stone parody still makes me laugh whenever I read it.

Thanks! I figured it was about time I just bit the bullet and wrote some more.

So yeah in Bioware games I'm a little trigger-happy on the "skip conversation" button. I like the completeness but I also don't want to have to sit-through hours of virtual hand-holding to get there.

There may also have been an incident in Baldur's Gate 2 where I was trying to clear our my inventory only to discover I had a baby in there.

Apparently after randomly clicking through character dialogues my character had gotten married to another character and procreated, without me having noticing.

That was kind of weird.

Oh and I went to a fancy dress party last night with a medieval warrior/barbarian/DnD style theme.

It was only after looking at the photos did I realise I was dressed as Ma'Skd.

Looking sharp, man.

Ok I'm going to finish this soon. I have an idea for how it's going to go but if you have any requests, please post here or pm me. Or you know post in the tale itself.

I feel quite proud because like all fantasy epics it took forever to finish and was much longer than it needed to be. I hate unfinished stories so I was determined not to let this one die. It's been a long four years.

You deserve a medal.  It's one that I've thought about sitting down and trying to edit it into a book like what has been done in the past.  The only thing stopping me is I have no idea what to do with the fact Team Good just vanish half way through.

Eh, the same thing happens in the other books. As a record of the Tales it's still a good idea.

Even though I totally lost my flow towards the end (and you did an amazing job finishing it all off Elihu) I really enjoyed writing Team Evil.  Might be fun to revist them in a Brief Tale at some distant point in the future.

Yeah they were a really easy group to write for, even if I did give up eventually.
