Author has written 6 stories for Baldur's Gate.
So the delay goes on...what can I say, I'm sorry! RL keeps me very busy these days. I have though started to review my stories, which is a step in the right direction at least! I can't make any promises as to times but hopefully things might start to pick up a bit.
A Fragment of Substance-An AU-version of the BG1 story told from the viewpoint of Anna, a Beregost mage who agrees to help look into the source of the iron crisis. I thought it would be interesting to see the story through the eyes of a third party, a person who isn't a natural warrior or adventurer despite having magical training. Though there's some heavy stuff in the tale there is a dose of humour, too. Mildly diverting trivia: Anna's being from the Dalelands is a tribute to 'Curse of the Azure Bonds', the first D&D computer game I ever played, some millions of years ago.
The Birthday Party-Imoen's tale. A tie-in with Substance, I wanted to develop Imoen a little and get a better feel for how she thinks. I always thought she was underdeveloped in a lot of ways, such as how we're told she came to Candlekeep ten years later than the PC yet we're told nothing of her life before that. This story doesn't deal too much with her past, focusing instead on the ups and downs of life as a maid in the Candlekeep Inn.
Natural Philosophy-A short fic chronicling the events that led to Irenicus' original fall from grace, done in a 19th-century Gothic style. Jon and Bodhi aren't blood siblings in this story; there were a few dialogues in the game that made me think they might not actually be related so I decided to play on the idea. 'Natural philosopher' is an old-fashioned term for 'scientist'.
Other Tales-As the name implies, a collection of short stories about the characters of the Sword Coast.
Three Watchers-Some of Xan's musings on the past and the present, and things in between. Set during BG1.
Perspectives-A three part story dedicated to Finn's point of view as they travel the Sword Coast. He's the hero after all, so he deserves it! This one has an M rating.
