I decided to post this in its own separate topic... At the moment, when doing a search, if the result is found in a multipage thread, you have to look at every page until you find what you want. So to make things easy on anyone searching for all of the Spin A Yarn stories, I decided to have a new topic, dedicated only to all of those stories -- and, more specifically, the links to them.
I'll update this post each year, to keep all the links handy.
Edit: At this time (08/01/2022), all these links are broken. I'm leaving them, though, as a reference; some of the times that I've found lost content on WotC's site, it's been by extrapolating and/or combining old URLs and new.
"Instead of asking why we sleep, it might make sense to ask why we wake. Perchance we live to dream. From that perspective, the sea of troubles we navigate in the workaday world might be the price we pay for admission to another night in the world of dreams." --Richard Greene (letter to Time)
Someone finally remembered to give us the final bit of the 2008 Spin a Yarn. According to the Archives page, it's been up since August 10th -- but I've been keeping an eye out for it, checking daily, and it wasn't there yesterday or any time before then.
The link, of course, is in the original post.
I'll leave this thread stickied for a couple more weeks or so, and then desticky it until next year.
The Wizards web team has once more earned my ire... They moved all the stories, and didn't bother to put redirects in place. This is a maneuver that appears to be SOP, because it's not the first time they've done it...
Anyway, all of the links are updated and working, as of the time of this post.
Note: For the stories that have an intro page, don't rely on the links Wizards gives you. Those links are aimed at the old location. My links work -- again, I just tested them all.
"The very best possible post-fourteenth-century Realms lets down those who love the specific, detailed social, political and magical situation, with its thousands of characters, developed over forty years, and want to learn more about it; and those who'd be open to a new one with equal depth, which there just isn't time to re-produce; and those repelled, some past the point of no return, by the bad-taste-and-plausibility gap of things done to the world when its guardianship was less careful." --Faraer
Edited the main post and re-stickied the thread. I kept fiddling with the links until I made one work, and then extrapolated from there. All of the links above should be good, though most of them may give you security warnings.
Thanks Wooly. I have been gone (from the realms and this community) for a while. Trying to easy back into, and boy do I have alot of back gossip to catch up with. I wasn't sure what time GenCon was. I looked it up after I wrote the reply. I will keep my eyes open. :-)
Some friends are like slinkies, not much use, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down stairs.
