Normally I'm more on the ball with things like this. Sorry, net has been spotty lately, and has me distracted.

I will be honest, I did not expect to enjoy this. I was wrong :) It is light, easy to read, and yet filled with a good amount of potential. It's more amusing for people with an RPG history or bent I think due to some of the sort of assumptions that go with it. I actually would rather have seen MORE people affected by a racial or gendered change than just one. Just one change of the protagonist almost seems a little more odd. I do admit there's still a lot of stuff that could be answered down the road with the weight of the mighty (TBC). There were some changes in terms of peoples age, physique, or rough n touble appearence but most everyone save one person changed. What then, was different about the one person so much? Why were there not other token elves or dwarves in the area? Questions questions...

But it's definitely an enjoyable read :)

"Uh-oh." "Don't tell me - we're about to go over a huge waterfall." "Yup." "Sharp rocks at the bottom?" "Most likely." "Bring it on."

BBOOOOOOOOYYAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH!

Oh you'll definitely see more of the changed. The issue isn't the change itself, but numbers. In most fantasy settings, Elves are rare compared to humans; in small human backwaters do you expect to see more than one?

And I tried pretty hard to keep this tale as one someone without an rpg or tabletop gaming background can understand and laugh along all the rest of us with, but there is probably always going to be that element of inside joke that I can't bridge for everyone. Such is life with a piece like this.

I'm glad you enjoyed it. There will be more soon-ish. Just need to edit the crap out of it first. I'm trying to run a fine line between not flooding our makeshift editing department and just dumping on everyone.

Oh! Yay! The thread is here!

My Comment from the Article Comments:

Oooh! Total conversion or something! Massively intriguing!


Speculation [ Click to expand ]


[Where is this story going? Are they gonna just stay in the world and not try and reverse the process, in which case the Event is just a way of rapidly generating a new setting? Or try and reverse the process, and then the aftermath of that reversal is... what?

...

I'm trying to figure out a satisfying conclusion to this... But, then again, I'm assuming that this has more parts instead of it being a one-shot... And apparently there's more parts...

...

Well, it'd be satisfying if the world they end up with at the end of this adventure is better, or comparable with the world that they left, else it's "You just dumped the world's population into a Crapsack World." Which is depressing?

Whoops, thought I got all those type o's. I'll find it.

Anyway, the setting isn't as easy as all that... you'll see.

Gonna echo FiddlerFox here and say that this was indeed more enjoyable than I was expecting. And no, Nagrij, that is not meant to imply that I have low expectations of your writing. ;)

Other than formatting and typeo correction, how different will the one here from the one in BC/TS?

Not very, to be fair. Likely not enough that anyone would notice. Sorry if you've already read it there.

I might be working on stuff that won't go up on BCTS, but that's going to take awhile, I'm booked.

Just realized that "Dim Prisons and Drakes" is a synonym for "Dungeons and Dragons"! *facepalm*?

I guess it's the name of the game that the world was transported into... Although, there might be actual Drakes and Dim Prisons eventually??

The name is an homage to Dungeons and Dragons, yes... and a sort of warning about what to expect. However, that's not the name of the world. We'll get to that. :)

As for drakes and prisons, yes, you'll see both soon.
