The gods of Nevre – A Collection of Short Stories

I just compiled a book! It has all The gods of Nevre short stories in it, which is a lot. I didn’t realize how much I’d written until I started compiling them.

The gods of Nevre Before and After stories have been revised, and some of them have been expanded. At the time I write this some of the stories in this book are not posted on the website yet, but those stories are also somewhat different than the ones in the book.

The book also has a short story that will not be appearing on the website. It’s called The Library and the Moon. It follows Stigr, The Pathfinder, as he discovers the library. Something also happens that shatters the moon, which produces a ring around Nevre and casts a shadow on the surface. The ring shadow will be somewhat explored in my D&D campaign Nevre: Yeodiax on my YouTube channel (link at end of post).

Here is a link to my author page. This links to the Amazon US store, but the book is available in all regions Amazon is available. At the time of writing only the Kindle edition is live.

The gods of Nevre: The Pathfinder – After

Stigr sat studying the histories at the end of time. It wasn’t truly the end of time, there was no true end to time, but he called it the end of time because no sentient races were left on the surface of Nevre. Something had happened fast enough that it wasn’t recorded in the great hall of histories. The histories just stopped. He was too worried about what that might mean to go back to that time and see what had happened. In all of his visits, he had never once seen any of the other gods. Not even Gormaliev.

A tome was lying open with a single sentence on the right page and nothing on the left. There was a single sentence. “The Pathfinder, meet me at sundown on the seven-thousandth anniversary of The Fount of the Gods at The Fount.” Continue reading

The gods of Nevre: The Healer/The Kindness – After

Simisola was known for her kindness and her healing, but most people thought this kindness was always nice. Kind is not always nice. Sometimes being kind requires being harsh.

– – –

Simisola stood on the stairs leading up to the monastery. She had only visited there once before when a monk needed her healing in order to go on and do great things. Today one young monk needed kindness to go on to do great things. She walked up to the gates and stared at the guards, waiting for them to talk to her. Continue reading

The gods of Nevre: The Coward – After

Rajendra knew that there were temples built to him, but he didn’t understand why. He was the worst excuse for a god in all of Nevre, but he was still worshiped as one. Some of his worshipers thought that maybe he would dispel their fears while others used his powers to cause fear in others. Very few realized that fear was his secondary domain even though his title was The Coward.

The Coward’s main domain was cowardice, the opposite of bravery. For this reason, he had a shaky relationship with The Warrior, but Kemp still recognized him as the rightful king so he tried to help. Not that it did any good. Whatever power was released when the stone exploded heightened personality traits. This was Rajendra’s curse. He would always be a coward, no matter what. Continue reading

The gods of Nevre: The Desecrator – After

Mrto felt the explosion deep in his core. The screams of the dying and the sudden silence fueled his dark powers. He absorbed as much of the suffering as he could from where he was and used some of it to finish breaking the bars in his cell. The tremor following the explosion had bent them, but not enough for him to escape. He ran to where the guards had taken his belongings and took them. He also took some of the other items. The other prisoners were dead and would no longer be needing them, anyway. Continue reading

The gods of Nevre: The Warrior – After

Kemp stood on a battlefield covered with the blood of humans and skravyn. This war would later be known as the first skravyn-human war. The Warrior planned to stand on the side of the humans, being one himself, until he heard the human king order the army to kill the women and children.

“They are not people. They are animals. Slaughter them like animals!”

A righteous fury burned brightly in Kemp at that statement. He had never felt such fury before. In his rage he acted for The Vengeance. He walked calmly up to the king. Nobody stopped him. Maybe they recognized him, maybe they saw the great anger on his face. He wasn’t sure, but Kemp always remembered the look of the young prince’s face as he killed his father in front of him. Continue reading

The gods of Nevre: The Jester – After

The Jester and Simisola met up every once in a while. When fate and destiny intertwined strongly they were both drawn to the place where it was being woven. Today was one such day.

Standing in front of a few people who didn’t know who he was The Jester was starting to tell a story of the famed and doomed adventure to what the adventuring party called “The Below” as he was doing so, however, he saw a change in the wind.

“So the band of mary adventurers set out, and the weather was…the wind is changing. I’m sorry. I must go.” The Jester bowed apologetically and popped out of existence in front of them, leaving the people amazed. Continue reading
