Hello everyone, It's been a while, but I'm back. My apologies to those who have been reading some of my recent works that I left hanging. When I was working on the "TFYW: Year Zero" stories I felt that I needed to expand the canvas, refine some ideas, and build on the mythology for my Dark Territory series. So, I had put what I had been working on to the side, to hopefully be revamped later. There were a lot of stories I wanted to tell to lead into the "Year Zero" which led into the actual Four Years War, so I came up with the "Origins" idea. My goal is that when this is all said and done "Origins" will help frame the entire event, for the Dark Territory entries in particular, and also add to the overall Dark Territory mythology. With "Origins" some of these entries are only slightly changed from their "Year Zero" versions ("A Burning House" and "Seeds of Rage"), while I've added quite a bit of new content as well. If you had read the earlier versions of those stories I think you can skip the updated versions without missing anything because the changes are minimal. Instead of breaking the individual stories out I'm just going to post them all in this thread. As always I hope you enjoy another foray into Dark Territory.
