Title: "A Long Hard Rain" (the Story of Autumn of Fallon
Author: el-remmen
Number of Threads: 1

System: D&D 2E
Setting: Aquerra (homebrew)
Started: July 2006
Status: Completed
Average Installment Length: Medium
Available for Download? No.
Style: 3rd person narrative prose, with footnotes for campaign and meta-game info. Very grim n' gritty [adult themes].

Overview: This is a character background I wrote for a priestess character I played in an Aquerra campaign run by my friend Sean (who posts here as Rastfar) back in 2E days. It is the story of a little-loved and oft-abused woman who finds solace and meaning in her growing faith in the goddess of healing.
Reader Comment: ". . .the character detail is marvelous. Autumn is a woman I would hope to meet someday, to sit and talk with, to learn what more she experienced. What better compliment I can give you I know not. Thanks for sharing this amazing character, no matter what she went on to accomplish." - Richard Rawen

Style: 3rd person semi-omniscient
Overview: A dark & deadly action-thriller-horror-mystery: somewhere between X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Kolchak the Night Stalker; with bits of Friday the 13th (the series), Dusk 'til Dawn, The Matrix, Big Trouble in Little China, and Men in Black thrown in. Or another way to say it is: like an X-Files episode written by Stephen King and directed by John Woo.
