The world of Descending Road holds some stories begun but not yet told. The writing is happening right now, as Derizan and his companions, escaping from a forced march into genocide, grapple with a flight into the unknown.

The new writing, in the form of new scene drafts, will be posted right here as it unfolds. There may be side trips. There may be changes and updates in those scenes as the fugitives struggle through the unfamiliar terrain of Muathen, the main continent of Tarnus.

Also new are some additions to the story’s setting and background. New glossary terms. New characters and relationships. New geography and maps. New articles about this sprawling planet and its wildlife, its weather, and even its ties into alternate worlds. You get it all.

The list of new scenes will appear below. It will grow. It will change. It’s a living thing.
