    Summary

    The young mercenary Byleth Eisner has fought to survive since he was sixteen, traveling from conflict to conflict across Fódlan to aid his father in skirmishes, bounty hunts, and displays of force. Byleth finds himself lifted out of this violent life and into the elegant world of aristocratic politics after he is scouted to teach Military Strategy at the Officer's Academy at Garreg Mach Monastery. Byleth's teaching career begins just as the future leaders of Fódlan's three major powers arrive at Garreg Mach, each of them bringing secrets and schemes to the Class of 1181. Barely an adult himself, Byleth must strive to nurture the minds and hearts of his students even while investigating the hidden ends of some of Fódlan's most cunning individuals.

    This work aims to rewrite the story of FE16 so that:
    - The world building is more consistent and feels more real
    - Conflict is driven by ideological differences between the main characters, not misunderstandings or miscommunications
    - No concessions to gameplay or development resources need be made due to the differing medium

    Summary

    An old threat looms in the north and yet another rises to the surface...

    The Compact has stood for fifteen years. In that time, Jaina and Sylvanas’s relationship has transformed them from bitter enemies to stalwart lovers and the Horde and Alliance have closely followed suit.

    And yet, a shadowy conspiracy, a few well-timed assassinations, and a rising tide of war threatens to tear the world apart.

    Summary

    A teenager struggling after the death of his best friend finds himself in a fantasy world - one which seems to be an amalgamation of every Dungeons and Dragons campaign they ever played together. Now he's stuck trying to find the answers to why he's there and what this world is trying to say. The most terrifying answer might be that this world is an expression of the person he was back on Earth.

    Note: Up there at the top, it says "Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings". This is very distinct from "No Archive Warnings Apply". The warning that there are no warnings is your only warning; do with it what you will.

    Update schedule is, as always, whenever I feel like it (though there is a spreadsheet tracking word count). Most discussion for this work takes place on /r/rational whenever a new chapter is posted.

    This story is now cross-posted on Royal Road.
