In the interest of "moving the action along" there are lots of stories that only get told briefly in the actual book, or not at all because the main storyline just doesn't need to go there. But sometimes, I feel like writing something a little different to power past the writing block. Those edited bits end up here, in the Short Stories section and probably posted in other places just for fun.
You may see stories from here incorporated or duplicated or mashed up, twisted around and crammed back into the main storyline, but more often than not, they just don't lead anywhere in particular. So if you're really bored and just want to wallow a little in the DDO-based Eberron world, read on!
