    Overview: Escape from conscription leads to dangerous adventures in an isolated part of the world.
    Reader Comment: "It's a very distinctive story hour in terms of its flavor. Realism is probably the right word - the injuries are severe, people die routinely (but not in a campy LoT way - not bagging on LoT) and instead of thinking of the PCs and feeling care-free and mythical, one instead feels surrounded by ominous portents, burdened, tired, injured etc. - which on some level makes the heroism more meaningful." - Dherys Thal

    Special: While this story is inspired by the Eberron campaign setting, it is not based on the exploits of any actual D&D sessions. That may be an issue for some potential readers.

    Title: Welcome to the Halmae
    Author: spyscribe
    Number of Threads: 1

    System: D&D 3.x
    Setting: Homebrew (Halmae)

    Started: February 2003
    Status: Ongoing
    Average Installment Length: 1000-1500 words
    Average Frequency of Installments: sporadic

    Available for Download? Yes
    Style: 3rd person narrative prose, with occasional winks to the underlying mechanics.

    Overview: The Halmae is a world where arcane magic has recently emerged and has not yet reached its full potential. Some see this new power as a good thing; others are convinced it is an affront to the gods. Although the party is usually faced with adversaries who are all too human, there are corners of the world where monsters and fey roam freely. Characters began at 1st level and have (so far) reached 7th. The campaign is ongoing.

    Reader Comment: “The story itself is compelling, beautifully written, and wonderfully character-driven. The individual characters are great fun to read. And the campaign, in both plot and setting, is utterly exquisite… This Story Hour also makes me weep for the types of adventures I could run before my party could teleport, wind walk and plane shift.” – Sagiro

    Special:
    1. Rogue’s Gallery Thread: Secrets of the Halmae, for non-players only.
    2. The story hour thread also contains sidebars with additional information about the game world, its pantheon, etc.
    3. The DM of this game (Fajitas) and player Wisdom Like Silence are former players from Piratecat’s “Defenders” game.

    Author: Cerebral Paladin (with occasional guest posts by Ladybird)
    Number of Threads: 1

    Type: Fantasy
    System: D&D 3.x with some house rules
    Setting: Aphonion, a homebrew world; continent of Drucien

    Started: 17 April 2004
    Status: Ongoing
    Average Installment Length: Short
    Average Frequency of Installments: Twice weekly, Thur. and Sun.

    Available for Download? No
    Style: 3rd person narrative prose

    Overview: The PCs are now the Archducal Council (i.e. ruler and top aides) of a major empire, and the games focus on high politics, intrigue, and warfare, with a dash of romance, as they try to keep the Archduchy of Canberry safe. Aphonion is the world of one of my favorite DMs. The DM has been running games in this world for more than 25 years, and it has a richness and depth unmatched by any other campaign I've played in. The game is currently focused on high politics and intrigue, although it started off as more of a travelogue-style game. The characters started at 3rd level, and are now about 12th.
