This is a blog dedicated to sharing fun adventure stories every month. (Well, hopefully fun. Interesting, maybe? Vaguely agreeable?)

Each story is set in a new world–worlds full of thieves and princes, ghosts and dragons, robots and spaceships and intergalactic emperors. Oddly enough, we have yet to feature a sleepy tiger (a disastrous oversight, which we hope to amend soon).

Find a Story!
