    Fanfiction

    Dear fellow-writers,

    Time and time again references are made of fears that you will be somehow punished for the writing of Fan-Fiction. Often we've been asked to reveal the 'Official Stance' on these works, so here it is:

    We love it.

    Fan-Fiction is created when members of a community love the game, and that's what we see in these creations. In fact, it was this type of writing that lead me to being hired on by Wulven to create the lore for Shadow Era. I consider all writers kindred, and want to see your efforts prosper. For that reason, we've reached out to a website specializing in this specific genre. Fanfiction.Net now list Shadow Era as an actual category (found HERE) so anything you create can be viewed by more people than ever! I've even added my original works to the site for anyone interested, but I do ask that you remember these are fan-fiction. They are not actual lore, and will not be canonized.

    The past year has been spent creating a whole new universe for people to play, dream, and create in. I'd like to think that there's plenty of room for all of us to enjoy these interesting stories in. All we ask is that when creating a work of fiction that's outside the official lore, please always make sure to designate it as such. Though out more veteran players will of course know the difference, a game can only grow with new players joining the cause. We don't want them confused on what's real and what's fan-created, so please do make sure clearly mark it as such.

    Thank you all for your work, and I'm looking very forward to seeing what new creations you all bring forward!

    Sincerely,
    Kevin 'NachyoChez' Manning

    How did I not see this new sub-forum, Lore?!

    Anyway this is what we wanted, some story that is easily accessible for all to see.

    But won't this be confusing for you, writing official lore and unofficial fan fiction at the same time?

    Anyway, it would be cool if there was a new fan fiction written by all fan fiction authors...

    NOBODY STEAL THAT IDEA!

    Darkness Rising is uploaded! As is my first arc, Meltdown.

    http://www.fanfiction.net/~preybird

    All future stories will be posted here and on fanfiction.net.

    If you follow Nachyo's link you can find my stuff, but you need to change the rating setting to include M rated stories. I don't think my stuff is quite soft enough for a G rating.

    I'm glad the new forum is doing the job, if doing it quietly. More is certainly on the way, of course!

    As for my fanfiction, there won't be any new put out by me. I'll be adding more official lore, but I just wanted my old work up for posterity's sake.

    I'm a professional writer/historian and I love Shadow Era. I've just posted the first piece of my first Shadow Era Fanfiction story and I'd love to know what people think of it. I'm anxious to do a whole lot more if there's any interest. I'm new to the suggested fanfiction page so I wasn't able to post it there.

    Thanks, Ben (Ravensmarc)

    I've a few pieces here, is it best to just use the fan fiction service (88 day shelf life) or is it possible to create a new thread keeping it in-house on the SE forum?
