I am a long time player (and lifetime register, yeah) of URW. In every spring it seems, I have an urge to play the newest version and check out all the cool things the creators have built in.
For your interest, I would like to introduce readers of this forum to Fargoer, my ongoing short-story series of fantasy that is heavily inspired by URW. Here is the premise:
We welcome you to step into the dark northern forest. A place where no plow had touched the ground this far in the wilderness. Where the tall shapes of Viking ships struck terror and awe everywhere they set their sails. This was the age of dreams and legends, of powers now long forgotten. Tales carried by whispers in the cold wind in this dark land.
Vierra is a young woman among the Kainu people, a tribe of age-old traditions and ways. Hers is the grim and solitary existence of a woman cursed with greatness and destiny.
Can she break her path painted in stone and find a place for herself in her tribe and in her turmoil-filled world? Or will she become 'the Fargoer?'
Fargoer is a series of fantasy short stories that draws its power from the harsh yet beautiful nature and folklore of Finland. The combination of fast-paced action and wonder for the long lost worlds of yesterday borrows heavily from pulp-literature of the 1930's... with a bit of human touch and drama in the middle.
The original stories are in Finnish, but I have managed to translate and edit first three to English, and the work is continuing. The first story can be read for free online in here. The rest can be purchased by very moderate fee, and there is a compilation of all of the stories availlable as well. Our www-pages http://www.fargoer.com/ are a good way to start the journey as well.
If you like Fargoer and are a facebook-user, I would like to suggest you to like us in Facebook to see latest developments of the project.
You can also leave your comment in this thread, I am very grateful for any feedback.
Best regards and happy URWing
