The Coming of the Zioth is a D&D campaign which started in May of 1996. To create a turn, we send emails back and forth for a while, and then, at a good stopping point, I (the DM) combine the emails, edit them, and publish them here as a prose narrative. A typical game turn is around 14 printed pages, so we have close to three thousand pages of material here! The early turns weren't very well written, so over the course of a bunch of years starting in 2000, I rewrote them into the “chapters” of book one. Unlike in the turns, I rewrote and invented dialogue and new plot points. You can find the originals at the bottom of this page.
I hope you enjoy reading these! If you want to be notified about major web site updates, and when new turns show up, you can subscribe to the lurkers list. If you really like what you see, and you like writing, consider joining the game. And I'm always happy to hear comments and critique.

These are interesting posts that never made it into the turns.
