Thank you Lazybones for taking the time to tell your story on these boards. I looked forward every work day to seeing a new update. As prolific as you are on most work days I was not disappointed.

I can honestly say that you made me care about these characters and about what happened to them. In the end I think, that is what defines a good writer.

Well, I've been lurking for years now, enjoying the story and occasionally commenting. Lazybones, this has been a great read. I started back when Delem was still my favorite spellcaster and I've been with you ever since -- though usually quietly. Thanks for posting. Thanks for writing. And thanks for making such an excellent read.

Man, now I'm kinda bummed... no more storyhour!.

Gnometown Hero
Midwood
Author: Name
Number of Threads: 2 (story thread, and discussion thread)

Type: Fantasy
System: D&D 3.5E
Setting: Praemal, the world of Ptolus

Started: December 8, 2006
Status: Ongoing
Average Installment Length: Approximately 1,000 words
Average Frequency of Installments: Daily, depending on workload, sometimes more often

Available for Download? Each chapter will eventually be available as a PDF when they're completed
Style: 3rd person

Overview: On the opposite end of the Tarsisian Empire from Ptolus sits the Barony of Midwood, nestled against the Hotash Mountains of the Prustan Peninsula. The tiny hamlet of Maidensbridge is famous as a birthplace of heroes, as Maidensbridge has grown up in the shadow of Green Mountain, home of the green dragon Gax. But now Gax has vanished, her kobold followers are becoming restless, and a new generation of heroes is coming of age in Maidensbridge.

Reader Comment: "I am absolutely loving your Storyhour Whizbang! I love it! This is the second storyhour thread I've subscribed to!"

Note: This is a revision and clean-up of an ongoing play by post game (on another board) that has been running since January 2006. The story hour is currently about 9 or 10 months behind, but catching up so eventually the pace of updates will slow down, but not for many more chapters.

Ptolus fans who are disappointed that this takes place thousands of miles away from the City by the Spire (most of the player characters had never heard of Ptolus the first time it's mentioned to them), never fear: The same themes are present in Midwood, although a lot of the more obvious elements trickle in slowly over time.

Freeport is also located in my version of Praemal in the Southern Sea south of Gharon. Redhurst is also a part of the setting, although it only teleports around the world, and not to any other planes.

Unlike most Story Hours, I'm trying to keep the Story Hour discussion-free. Comments, questions and supplemental material goes in the discussion thread.
