Tales of the Tigers

Traveller of Both Time and Space: Introduction and Table of Contents 
For this site, I incorporate quite a bit of fiction into battle reports but I usually don’t have the time to write many actual, stand-alone stories. I tend to write slowly and do a lot of revisions, and it’s very hard to work on a story over several weeks (or months) while creating or editing material for the Jungle’s updates. 

To solve this time constraint, “Traveller of Both Time and Space” (which takes its title from a line from Led Zeppelin’s song “Kashmir”) will be written as a serial, with new episodes being posted as often as I can. 

“Traveller” also breaks some new ground in that it features Raja Shamshir Talatra, who shares command of the Fighting Tigers of Veda Space Marine Chapter with Raja Khandar Madu. Though Shamshir Talatra has been around since before the Jungle, I really haven’t done much to explore his character aside from some appearances in the Blood Deserts of Auros IX Campaign.

Usually when I start writing a story, I’ve already outlined it; I know how it will end and I know how it will get to that ending. Not so with “Traveller.” I have no idea how it will end or how it will get there; I’m just making it up as I go. Hopefully, you’ll come along and see…..
