Chapter Twenty-Three: Switch...
"Pain is one concept that we all know but cannot understand. There are many kinds of pain. Some which people love, some which people cannot come to terms with, and some that people avoid like the plague..."
Valtyra woke up and immediately felt her muscles complain. She tried to rise, but her head flared and she fell back down onto the pillow.
Ascent to the Dark Side (a short story)
Nov 25th
[Editor's note: The following is a story project started in the summer of 2003. Co-authored primarily by myself and a college friend as a way to keep ourselves writing over summer break, it sat unfinished for twelve years before the story came up in conversation with an anonymous third friend this past summer, who then read what we'd done and said "Ah! I know EXACTLY what happens next!" and then proceeded to finish it out.
What I present here is the story, in full. It's been edited slightly from the original and had the ending added, but the original dialogue and flow is largely intact. If nothing else, it shows the friend-fic hobby goes back a lot farther than RCM - the Kat and Tim mentioned are real people, she really was obsessed with Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan, and the argument at the beginning of the story was real (although the real life argument ended more or less with "Well, you can't be an Ewok because it's not a listed character class" being retorted with "That sounds to me like as a GM you just aren't up to adapting to the story").
I hope you get as much entertainment reading it as we did writing it.
The Accidental Podcaster: Thankful Thoughts
Nov 23rd
Years ago, when I was an undergrad, our campus honors fraternity raised money for our local Habitat for Humanity chapter by soliciting sponsors for us to be "homeless" for one Friday evening in the fall. We had a lot of supporters during the build-up, but when the day arrived, more than half the group retreated due to the cold and the rain – being homeless for a night was fine, so long as they didn't have to be uncomfortable or inconvenienced. For those who stayed, it was an eye-opening event. We had to build a fire if we wanted to keep warm, but that was difficult with the wind, so a few of us had to act as a shield while another gently fed tinder into the tiny flames. Staying dry was another challenge; we begged a roll of cheap trash liners from the campus maintenance staff to make ourselves ponchos and to try to keep our cardboard box houses from disintegrating in the rain. A few of the professors had set up a soup kitchen for us – by our pledge, the only food we were allowed that day. They also brought me medicine, since I had a nasty cold and refused to leave. I didn't want to take it for the same reason I didn't go home: the point of the exercise was that we wanted to experience what homelessness was really like, and the truly homeless didn't have the option of going to a warm house when it got cold or drinking cough medicines because they were sick.*
But what stood out most for me from that night wasn't until after the supporters had gone and the temporarily homeless students went to sleep. The campus lawn where we built our box city was directly across the street and maybe seventy-five yards away from the main railroad tracks that went through town. I had a rather choice refrigerator box as my temporary home – being short, I had the option of stretching my legs out and still having the protection (minor as it was) of my cardboard walls and trash-liner roof. It was still raining intermittently, so after the fire died down it was pitch black aside from the occasional headlights of a passing car. The wind rustling through the dry, falling leaves made it feel colder, but I was reasonably snug in my hat and sleeping bag.
Until the freight train came through.

RCM Fanfic - Agents of ARACHNOS, Ep. 21
Nov 20th
Episode 21 - Intermission
[Author's note: Oh ma gawd you GAIZ! ...No, no, scratch that, I don't have the energy to do a full on proper author's/arthor's note. Sorry. But I did want to say in an attempt to not fuck up the story narrative right as we've gotten to the action, this week's offering is notably shorter. Don't worry - we've got more stuff on the way, and a special Shia Surprise for Thanksgiving. But you guys deserve the very best, so I'm not going to rush out the other scenes for this chapter until they flow the way they're supposed to. Stay tuned -J.]

Heavenly Demon, Chapter Five
Nov 18th
Heavenly Demon is a fifteen-chapter novel by RCM staffer Kolemsai.
Neither one of my parents left me alone that night. After dinner they came in my room and were appalled at how bare it was; the only things in there was a bare mattress and a small pile of clothes. They promised to make up for it.
The Accidental Podcaster: Opinions
Nov 16th
At the beginning of summer this year, the company which provides my day job made the difficult decision to begin phasing out a number of locations across the country. The unfortunate byproduct of this was a large number of positions being eliminated at the various affected campuses. It wasn't unexpected, but it was still an emotional time; the nature of my own position meant I knew a lot of the people who were let go, and a number of them were personal friends. To make things worse, the day of the announcement was also the first day after my very good friend and work partner had left for a different job, and we'd not yet found a replacement for her shift. Reeling from the shock and chaos that swirled about in those first few weeks, it was hard not to despair.
But the darkest moment was when a former student – a real gossip queen – stopped by during the busy time just before class to give her two cents on the whole situation and get whatever dirt. As my friends will tell you, I dislike gossip as a general rule, but I especially despise when someone comes to talk to me for the sole purpose of trying to extract information of which they have no business. All the worse if the topic being inquired about is one of a personal nature, and if the person asking is doing so in a way that impedes my work. Hit all those points and now my temper is hot.
She had a lot of questions I didn't have answers to and a lot that I wouldn't have answered if I did. My canned (if somewhat irritated) responses to her trying to wheedle something juicy out of me frustrated her, but not enough to take the hint and go on her merry way. Instead, after hitting the proverbial wall several times with her questions and getting increasingly exasperated with me, she finally let out a snotty, "Well, I'm SURE you have an OPINION, don't you?"

Nov 13th
Chapter Twenty-Two: Grayst Sevilla
"Everyone believes that the undead are weak, slow creatures that are only interested in brains. I dare you to met a ghoul one day and think that same thing. Assuming you survive, that is."
The green form of Bubnug flew across Valtyra's vision and crashed into Sevilla. Both slammed against a bookshelf and fell to the ground, struggling against each other. Valtyra turned away from them and yelled at the tiefling, "Get him out of here!"
