I decided to post this in its own separate topic... At the moment, when doing a search, if the result is found in a multipage thread, you have to look at every page until you find what you want. So to make things easy on anyone searching for all of the Spin A Yarn stories, I decided to have a new topic, dedicated only to all of those stories -- and, more specifically, the links to them.

I'll update this post each year, to keep all the links handy.

2006:
Introducing "Every Revel a Masterpiece"

I am glad I requested notification on this thread.
Alaundo Posted - 04 Apr 2017 : 19:06:32
Well met

Excellent, thanks for locating this, KanzenAU.

I had put some of Ed's work starting with Never a Warpig Born over on the Bard's Rumours page in the Alaundo's Library section of the site, so will get it updated to including these too.
Wooly Rupert Posted - 02 Apr 2017 : 15:31:19
I really, really hate how Wizards keeps arbitrarily moving stuff around on their website and never updates links.

I'm beginning to think their web folks move stuff around just to say they're doing something.
KanzenAU Posted - 02 Apr 2017 : 12:42:17
I found a link to the Spin A Yarns from 2001-2008 for those interested:

KanzenAU Posted - 29 Jun 2016 : 10:49:28
Does anyone have updated links for these? Keen to have a read :)
Falstaffsrevenge Posted - 28 Dec 2015 : 02:01:04
Hmm I wonder as well. Two years between post, doesn't look good.
George Krashos Posted - 15 Dec 2015 : 04:25:01
I wonder if we'll ever see a Spin a Yarn from the 2014 seminar. I suppose I should ask Ed ...

We have the 2013 Spin a Yarn!

The Unforking Family Tree

I can't do a separate link for the one for 2012 -- it was in Dragon 425, and either they took down the individual article link, or it was never done as an individual article.

I've checked all the other links, and they are working. You may get security warnings, though, as many of them remain (inexplicably!) https links.
Falstaffsrevenge Posted - 19 Jul 2013 : 23:33:10
Thanks Wooly. I have been gone (from the realms and this community) for a while. Trying to easy back into, and boy do I have alot of back gossip to catch up with. I wasn't sure what time GenCon was. I looked it up after I wrote the reply. I will keep my eyes open. :-)

Well, the 2013 tale hasn't been written yet... The previous year's tale is usually present at roughly the same time as GenCon.

First post updated, thanks for the link, Red.

If anyone manages to locate some of the other Spin A Yarns, please PM me the URL, so I can get everything updated.*

With options for PDF. eBook or Kindle book...very nice!



And a possible Larloch sighting??

also of note..it seems only 2009, 2010 and 2010 are accessible...get your copies while you can!



I'm sure the others are out there, somewhere, but they keep moving stuff around and not bothering to update the links. I've had to chase some of these down multiple times.

Edited the main post and re-stickied the thread. I kept fiddling with the links until I made one work, and then extrapolated from there. All of the links above should be good, though most of them may give you security warnings.

Thank you for that link, Matt. I'll get the original post updated.

I always love these.

Wooly Rupert Posted - 30 Jul 2010 : 11:55:53
Added link to 2009 Spin a Yarn. I tested all the other links, and they're all still good, save for the collected pdf of the 2008 tale. I'll have to search for that one, later, and update the link.
Wooly Rupert Posted - 10 Jan 2010 : 14:56:28
Heh, and now I'm glad I set this thread up the way I did. It would have been tedious to wade thru and change all of my posts, if I'd put the links in them instead of just in the original post.
Wooly Rupert Posted - 10 Jan 2010 : 14:54:02
The Wizards web team has once more earned my ire... They moved all the stories, and didn't bother to put redirects in place. This is a maneuver that appears to be SOP, because it's not the first time they've done it...

Anyway, all of the links are updated and working, as of the time of this post.

Note: For the stories that have an intro page, don't rely on the links Wizards gives you. Those links are aimed at the old location. My links work -- again, I just tested them all.

Rino, I noticed that your tailess tressym I submitted to Ed on your behalf last year was very near the start!

Ed must favor you a bit I think!

And I can't wait to get home and pull out my notes from 08 and see how much else made it in.
Wooly Rupert Posted - 04 Sep 2009 : 15:46:11
Hey, while updating my own page of links, I noted that this year, they compiled the entire tale into a single pdf. That is also linked to above.
Wooly Rupert Posted - 04 Sep 2009 : 15:31:19
Someone finally remembered to give us the final bit of the 2008 Spin a Yarn. According to the Archives page, it's been up since August 10th -- but I've been keeping an eye out for it, checking daily, and it wasn't there yesterday or any time before then.

The link, of course, is in the original post.

I'll leave this thread stickied for a couple more weeks or so, and then desticky it until next year.
