Meta: New story / world: Agent

Hey readers, there is a new story that’s been posted, along with a new world category: Agent. The longer description of this is in the header of the story post, but basically it’s something from a long time ago (2006-ish) that I wrote as sort of fan-fiction of a video game I was working on. The game never got published, and this is what’s left of it.

There may be some site changes in the next few days, because I think I’m going to remove the Markdown editor from the site itself, and replace it with a local “build” workflow. This isn’t a big deal because I am already having to do a build to get some new Markdown elements I wanted. I’d like to get this situated before a whole lot more is posted.

Summary: An elite, shape-shifting agent takes on a mission that has even the big brass scared. A series of surprises leads to a change of perspective for the agent, and the beginning of a revolution for the world.

Notes: The amusing back-story of this story: Me and a group of friends were planning to release an RPG (video game) and spent a while coming up with a world and characters for it. We never did get our act together to build the game, and I was a little lukewarm on where the story was going anyway. Later on this emerged based roughly on the world, so I guess you say that it’s fan-fiction for a game that never was. It takes place a thousand years after the RPG would have.

Timeline note: This story was actually written around 2006 or so, but it’s never actually seen the light of day. So I’m going to go ahead and leave the date for this post as today, to avoid confusion about what’s new on the site.
