I've got three suggestions for people who like Errant Story:Graybeard wrote:To me Errant Story has been so superior, at least for the last couple of years, to almost all others in its genre that I'm not sure how to replace it, even as a temporary measure until Errant Tales start up. Would people be OK with a new thread in the "Errant Rambling" forum to discuss that question of (temporary) replacements in the same genre? It probably fits better there than here, and I for one am very interested in the "what now" question.
The Bean is a serious and epic fairy tale for all ages, so there are no sex jokes in the forest of Darkleaf. Or any other jokes either, as far as I can tell. People even die, that's how serious it is. Recently an old and apparently evil elf appeared, and isn't that really what Errant Story is all about? Those old, evil elves.
Unsounded is about a scary little mutant troll girl and her faithful attack zombie. Together they travel to a location which they have yet to reach, and they joke and have fun all the time. Limbs fly, places get blown up and the attack zombie sulks and pouts about tragedies from his past. Yep, all fun and jokes. It looks wonderful too. The little girl sometimes teases her attack zombie for being in love with her, and thus being a 'child lover'. So I guess that makes it "not for kids". That, and the red blood. I guess it's not all fun and jokes after all.
Drowtales has been around for long enough that I would think that everyone would already know about it. But since it's an epic story filled to the brim with evil elves and grimdark war, I don't really see why anyone who reads Errant Story wouldn't also enjoy Drowtales. Though, if one is already reading it, it couldn't very well become a 'replacement' for Errant Story.
