This story is currently on hold while I catch up on projects.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

Meet Jules Olivia Doonagan, as known as The Singing Swordstress, and captain of the dimension traveling vessel, The Morrigana.  She’s a swashbuckling, gender-swapping, mischief making pirate well on her way to making a name for herself.  In other words, she takes after her mother.

HOW THE STORY IS WRITTEN: As this started off as an RPG campaign I decided to let the dice dictate the story.  I use a simple method of rolling a D20 for all actions for the characters.  The higher the number, the better the action, the lower the number the worse the action.  This includes dialog, fighting, crafting, navigation, persuasion, etc.  Modifiers are not added, though I do make “advantage” & “disadvantage” rolls depending on whether the character is being assisted/hindered by another character or item (weapons, armor, jewelry, whatever).  This makes it quick and very simple to “let fate decide” while keeping the flow of writing going smoothly.

NOTE: This story is just for fun and something I do as a personal project.  It’s not professionally edited so it will contain plenty of grammar & spelling mistakes.  You’ll simply have to suffer through that as I don’t have the time nor money to rectify it. Besides…Goddammit Jim, I’m an artist not a professional writer!
