In the morning, the household awoke and began to set to doing the day’s work. Belynda bundled up Cinder, and tucked her into her cloak. Nathalie and Hilde got the donkey into its harness, and then saddled up Tinza. The cart already had all of the baggage on it, so it wasn’t long before they … Continue reading Fight, Swear, Loathe; Chapter 13
The only thing worse for a writer than having no ideas is having too many ideas. I have a terrible habit of writing down story ideas both for gaming and writing and leaving them scattered about my home. I am trying to break myself of this habit by using cloud-based technology (what an age to … Continue reading Book Six
The hallmark of any failed blog is when you post pertinent information therein and literally nobody in your circle of influence even notices. "I wonder why Chip is so depressed lately." Might have something to do with the daily posts on his blog where he talks in gruesome detail about how utterly alone he feels … Continue reading Clues Hidden in Plain Sight

Time for an in depth analysis of the most complex and powerful human state in Partum, the empire known as Geldenreich. Divided into four separate parts, the politics of Geldenreich have always been overly complicated. Each of the four parts is considered an Archduchy, and each of them has their own royal house. The heads … Continue reading Continental Excursions; Geldenreich
As the elves of Evelliene are quick to point out, their islands are not strictly speaking a connected bit of Partum, the continent upon which sits Fanolania, Geldenreich, and the several dozen other nations that form the lion's share of what might be called civilization in this part of Domum. Evelliene is the term denoting … Continue reading Continental Excursions; Evelliene
There is an undeniable electricity in the air here at the headquarters of all things Slothjemian. With copious amounts of vacation and studious use of available free time during normal functioning hours, we are delighted to announce that we are probably done with writing and editing of book five.
