Year's ago, I started to write up a series of journal entries from a soldier that was serving on the Fortress Wall in the waning days of the Third Age.  Due to other writing commitments and lack of pressure from the board, I never completed the project.  Recently Nif asked us to edit some articles that never made it over from the old site.  One of those articles was the first nine journal entries from my little saga. After re-reading them I decided that I needed to finish the project even if no one else was interested. So starting today, I am posting the original nine in unique threads to avoid overwhelming the readers and I'll post the first of the "lost" journal entries (#10) today as well.  I should be able to post additional journal entries every few days until the saga is complete.

Hopefully, the newcomers to the site will enjoy reading about the later Third Age and the old timers will forgive my trip down nostalgia lane.  Without further ado, off to post the Journal Entries.

This is good stuff. Thanks for the story.

I've only read the first two, and I realized that I wasn't going to be able to read the rest for a day or two. I'm going to link them all in order on this post for my own convenience.

Thanks Arnon.  I've roughed it out to the end and you should see a new chapter every week through Christmas.

For those of you still following the serial, just wanted to let you know that (after today) it has five more episodes and a recap.  I've tried to keep it like a journal and not just skip to the action pieces.  I've also tried to weave in some information on the third age and how people lived/acted with the Kingdom of Erenland slowly collapsing.  Don't worry there's more action to come.

Kane,

Like I said above, I love these journals for the exact things you stated as your "goals" above.

Can't wait to see how it concludes...

Only 5 more? Now I'm depressed knowing the end is nearing. Yes, the story is that good.

I have to figure out way to this "lost journal" into the hands of my PCs.

Goldbricker,

The journal was tied to one tour of duty on the wall (about 1/2 a year).  I'll have to find some thing else that sparks my interest for a new writing assignment.  Glad you're enjoying it.
