I'm torn about this chapter, its so very obviously thrown together to grab and finish as many threads as possible, and it tries to do in one chapter what probably would have taken at least five.

The Many Miscellaneous Adventures of Gren (new writer)

This was one of many 'bluebook's I wrote during John Myers' incredibly entertaining Unknown Armies campaign. It is readable as a sort of 'rough cut' short story, as it references events and characters familiar to the campaign itself, but not included in this piece of writing; but hey, that's why gamers have imaginations. It was also written when I didn't know very much about Unknown Armies (I'm still not exactly a rules/mythos lawyer; but our GM kept us intentionally excluded from the written mythos of the game, so that we would not have any out of character knowledge what so ever. I give a grudging nod to his decision to do so. Simply keep this in mind.

I wrote this about two years ago, and while some of the descriptions I somewhat impress my contemporary self with, some parts of the story I find short, dry, unnecessary, etc. I hope some of you will be able to read it with a slightly less jaded appreciation. At any rate, whether you like it or every sentence thoroughly disgusts you, feedback would be great. Feel free to e-mail me, or simply reply to the post. I'd very much appreciate it. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I hope you enjoy. Read More...
