Greetings, my fellow gamers!

My friend and I who have been working on a campaign together have been writing the account of our campaign down in story format, as though it were a regular novel. We are quite interested in posting it for constructive criticism, but know not wherewe ought to do thus. Would anybody happen to have any recommendations as to where to post our D&D ficton? It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you kindly!

While I am not the mod or admin of this group. So errrrr... I suppose if I say post it here, take that for what it is worth. - Something that I can not see being counter to the rules, so to speak, as they are presented. Although I would, and I'm sure I'm not alone greatly appreciate a cut.

With that out of the way.

As I see it, you've got two options. Depending on what kind of critizism you are after.

If the critizism you are after is more of one about your writing. Treat it as fanfic, and look for a suitable fanfic community. Hey! last time I looked even the pit of voles (fanfiction.net) had a D&D section.

If it on the other hand, is a D&D question in that you want critizism on the campaign the story is based on. Rather than the story itself. Well, then here in this community is certainly an option. As I said before, I can not see anything in the community rules that would disallow it. It is a D&D related question rather than a literary one.

Yeps, I certainly would use a cut; I know exactly how much of an abomination something of what seems like a few quadrillion paragraphs can be on one's friends page. As for your other suggestion, I actually did post the story on fanfiction.net, although I know precisely what you mean by your "pit of voles" barb, having been a member since 2000. Unfortunately, i know of very few other fanfic communities. I'm starting this out as a D&D story and am actually hoping to perhaps submit it... should it be good enough, so I seek criticism for sure! Thank you for your assistance!

I'm not sure if it is the best option, but one option is to create a free account for the sole purpose of posting content about the campaign. Then post a link to it in the communities you think would be interested. I've seen that done a few times. There may be appropriate communities set up already.

I like your idea. Thank you!

...but I would say this forum is not the place to post such things.

Now as a writer, I can say this:

If you're looking to get this story published (and by that I don't mean Lulu), I would refrain from posting portions of it on the web. I don't say that out of fear of piracy, but most operations want what's called "first publishing rights," and putting something on the web tends to considered the first publication by some.

Second, if you want constructive critiques on your *writing*, your best bet is to go to where writers hang out. Here's an example of one such place. This audience may or may not have some writers in it, but it's best to get input from the professionals.

Lastly, you may want to ditch the D&D aspects of the story -- if publication is your goal. Being copyrighted material, WotC controls the licensing for its game-based novels
