It's not a Realms tale, but a prelute to my novel-in-progress, which is set in a fantasy version of Elizabethan England. This novel was planned with FR readers in mind, and you'll find many familir themes.

"Royal Daughters" is set in the border country of Scotland during the infancy of Mary Queen of Scots. Henry VIII of England wanted a betrothal between Mary and his young son, Edward. The Scots weren't having this, because they knew it would mean the anexation of their kingdom. In an attempt to force the issue, bands of English raiders were sent in to burn, loot and kill. In later years, the Scots, who have a real flair for ironic understatement, would call this period the "Rough Wooing."

This story also contains fey warriors and changelings, which is NOT part of the historical record. (Even though it SHOULD be....)

Here's a link to the story. It's on Patreon, but it's free to all readers. There's also a post with a bit of background of both the story and the novel.

Thanks for reading!

I have a book that is not Canon dnd but takes place in Finder Wyvernspur's home of Fermata when it was in Arborrea (2nd ed). It is not quite a Novel but is regular sized. My next one Re Magic will be in Gates of The Moon. I will give a .pdf to anyone, so don't buy from the publisher, unless off ebay or something for dirt cheap. It is called Tempest by Scotty Wilson. The art in Tempest is not as good as the stuff in Re Magic, and since war is already won it goes at a slower pace. The Facebook for it is [l][l]

I liked it too, although the fey seem a bit overpowered.

What is dead may never die, but rises again, harder, stronger, in a later edition.
