The accidental fanfic

I've been working on the next stage of the newbie quests for the island of Kordan, and one of my major stumbling blocks has been explaining exactly why another stage exists. The general theme with this sort of thing is that there's a continuous storyline as you progress from one quest to another; you work your way deeper into the conspiracy to take over the world (or whatever), and ultimately emerge the hero.

The problem was, I didn't have any such story or conspiracy constructed, and wasn't feeling particularly inspired. So, I decided to try something new. I sat down and wrote some crap.

It turns out that my crap looks like a pretty decent, if dry, story. I accidentally created my first piece of fanfic!

I've posted it on the Alter Aeon Fan Fiction page and added a section for myself. The direct url is:
