Part I

Part II – Nothing’d Be The Same

My father is a terrifying being…

…though I’ve seen him a thousand times, when he came into my room the next instance, holding the black book I’d opened, it sent dread through me like a shot

In that same instance my glowing runes that floated above me dropped upon my chest… he did not see

‘EMORY!! DID YOU TOUCH THIS BOOK?!’ he spoke sending tremors straight through me and the walls that surrounded me

My mind slowed…

…what would I say?

How could I lie… he’d know

‘Yes father,’ I replied, knowing this could be the end for me… Destroyed and forgotten

He calmed, then step forward, and kneeled before my bed… I’d never seen anything like this from before

‘Son… You must be careful with the books in my library… They’re…’ he stood

‘Don’t…

Chapter XVIII Of Kait’s Retelling or our 3+ Year Dungeons & Dragons Campaign, ‘Adventures of Vilven Ledsong’

Adventures of Vilven Ledsong

His serene yet wild face appeared nearly frozen despite the strong wind dancing into him.

She felt cautious of his presence. Why was he here? Though she had lived most of her life in solitude, she learned to rely on her instincts and insight. She had been gifted with perceptiveness, something she had always been grateful for.

The talking from the other passengers became a distant hum behind her, darkness surrounded them as if they were the only two on the boat.

“Hello, Vilven” He said with some humor, a slight smile coming to his darkly striking face. That smile she had seen a few times in his bookstore that always seemed unexpected.

There was something else, Vilven could tell beneath his disarming introduction. For the first time, she was coming into an awareness she must be more careful. She loved bringing new comrades with her, even with the limited…

Chapter I – Oz Ryder

Chapter II -Allone

CHAPTER III – Magnanus

High within a darkened tower, within the Ohr’Dra Peaks, scrambling his way through scrolls and items of importance, the Shadow Mage (Sorcerer) Minotaur, Magnanus, gathers his things and any proof he can get his hands on…

…but proof of what?

Magnanus stands 7′ tall, with dark brown fur, and though his form is large, his power lays within his blood more than his body

His form covered in a light purple glow with black smoke as he moves through the hallways, and makes his way out of his Master’s Tower

With one look back, he then heads north through the peaks towards the Great Woods

CHAPER II -Allone

Allone had always been a great help to her people…

Being a Hill Dwarf of ‘Lands Way’, there were many of them across their hills… But rarely would you find one as eager to serve, and help as she…

Allone stands 4’2″ tall, and is 52 years of age, though she looks 20, her kind are known to live five times as long as long…

But even though she helps with so many aspects of her village during the day, at night… she trains

There is an Elder Tortle by the name of Moliath who teaches her the Monk ways of The Open Hand

She works hard at martial arts, and the use of her Quarterstaff

Sometimes she asks herself why she is drawn to these things… but continues the training without…

by Doragon (aka James Mahoney)

CHAPER I – Oz Ryder

In the ‘Kandria Woods’, south of the ‘Two Cities’, there lay a Rabbitfolk in the middle of a sun shiney field…

His arms behind his head, he gazes at the sun in the sky above…

…blue skies, and billowy clouds

‘What a perfect day,’ he spoke in a knightly manner, his soft yellow eyes filled with the wonders of nature… including a coolish warmish breeze that made its’ way through his light grey and white fur

‘Oh Ander, must you leave?’ came a voice from a nearby cluster of yellow and purple flowers where a brownish furred Rabbitfolk girl by the name of ROSAIA picks a grouping of flowers, and makes her way back to her male companion

‘Oz Ryder, Rosaia… I told you, I’m not taking my father’s name into my new profession… My…

CHAPTER I – War At Dawn

Ghost sits by himself, between many a dark, tall tree, looking down upon the valley filled with enemy knights…

From the darkness behind him, one of the woman Fighters crawls up beside him

‘You really shouldn’t be so far away from camp…’

Ghost is silent

‘The battle isn’t until sun break, what good is it losing sleep and just watching them?’

He looks at her, his elven grey eyes piercing her blue human…

…his focus then returns to the army below

‘Alright, alright, I can take a hint…’

She starts to crawl away when-

‘It’s my fault that she’s dead…’ he speaks

Aladra is confused by this, ‘She? Who is she…’

He doesn’t reply

Adventures Of Vilven Ledsong

Posted in Dungeons And Dragons, Fiction, Writer, Writing on April 23, 2021 by darkjade68

Anyone whose been following my Blog for a while, knows that I play a lot of Dungeons & Dragons

As both a Writer and a Filmmaker, it’s been an invaluable way to work/stretch my imagination in all ways Story/Character, especially as a Dungeon Master which I generally am

In early 2018, I began a campaign with/for my girlfriend, and in addition to two other campaigns that we’re in (One she runs, another I run for a group), we’ve ran this first campaign now for 3 years

Kait (My girlfriend) was so inspired by it, she actually began writing a book telling of our beginnings and beyond

Last year she also started a GoFundMe for it, but she’s been so busy with starting her home business, she hasn’t worked on it a lot lately

Last night I found that GoFundMe, and donated $60 in hopes that she will begin writing on it once more

If you’d like to contribute towards the cause, here’s the link to her GoFundMe Adventures Of Vilven Ledsong

Thanks for your support!
