Candle’Bre, Tapestry, Volume I: Collected Threads
In the intervening years, as we’d begun releasing early game builds, I’d often amuse the team by writing shorter pieces that illuminated odd bits of Candle’Bre’s history during the two centuries leading up to the time that the game (and the trilogy proper) is set in, and over that span of years, I came to have quite a number of them.
Many, I’d written myself, but some…some had been written by team members and fans of the game.
We actually had fan fiction.
How cool was that?
So I gathered them all up, and set about editing them and tying the various threads together to make a fourth volume for our world.
In under a year, it was done.
Sadly, it is at this point that (if you’re reading these chronologically) our narrative begins to take a darker tone, and “Collected Threads” would be the last work of fiction created purely for the joy of creating, for quite some time.
We did not know it at the time, but the Great Recession was about to hit, and when it did, it would bring with it all sorts of other calamities. Health issues, heart attacks, and, depending on your point of view, it probably also planted the seeds for the eventual dissolution of my marriage.
Anyway, “Collected Threads” is to the Candle’Bre trilogy what “The Hobbit” is to the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
Although it came last, its actually a prequel to the story proper, and I just love it.
Some great stories in that collection, and just as important, some stories that shed yet more light on some of the seldom trod corridors of Candle’Bre’s history.
