Shades of Truth - Chapter II
September 16, 2009
Straight to the Stark chapter, and not two Melfina chapters to start off the Volume. There aren't just
story ideas that I want to try out in each volume. There are also structural ideas that I want to
try out with each Volume as well. The most obvious change for Volume 2 was the more chapters in that

times. I absolutely did not want Stark to be able to recall everywhere in the story, like paladins can
do in the game. So I took the concept of a sacred journey and changed it into a completely different
In general, this chapter came out easily enough. The basic structure was there when I first sat down to
write it, and I had plenty of time to let it simmer in my mind, and come back to it when I let enough time
pass by. With that said, the last revision before putting this up, had a lot of major cleaning up to do
that I didn't notice with the couple revisions prior to it. Taking time away from writing is defintiely
an important thing to have.
