So cut it quick and clean, I previously had a thread much like this listing off all my Guristas work. but I figured I wanted to make a new one that showcases more of my content that I’ve made during my time in the EVE online fiction community.
Over 100k+ words long, The Prosperity storyline (Calling it this for the sake of a name) is my flagship peice of fiction. It’s a book long narrative focused on the Guristas from the perspective of those living in Venal or working within the Guristas’ ranks directly.
While you could start from the actual start and work your way to the end, I highly encourage you to jump around and start with what sounds interesting. Stories all contain Context links to previous stories that I reference. I will never assume you know what Im talking about, and will point you in the direction to learn what Im referencing.
