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"

Probably a good idea to add some adhesive to this scroll too, at least for the time being -- since it's likely our more Gen Con-inclined scribes may want to read the various past "Spin A Yarn" tales.

Great idea!

"Instead of asking why we sleep, it might make sense to ask why we wake. Perchance we live to dream. From that perspective, the sea of troubles we navigate in the workaday world might be the price we pay for admission to another night in the world of dreams."

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I always love these.

"The very best possible post-fourteenth-century Realms lets down those who love the specific, detailed social, political and magical situation, with its thousands of characters, developed over forty years, and want to learn more about it; and those who'd be open to a new one with equal depth, which there just isn't time to re-produce; and those repelled, some past the point of no return, by the bad-taste-and-plausibility gap of things done to the world when its guardianship was less careful."

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.

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.

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.*

Has anyone see a posting of Ed's 2012 or 2013 spin a yarn tale. THO mentioned that Ed was going to incorperate my sign into he story and I have been dieing to see how that played out.

Some friends are like slinkies, not much use, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down stairs.

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

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. :-)

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.
