''[[Fanfic/FinishingTheFight Finishing the Fight]]'' by Aratech
* Recommended by: {{SAMAS}}, Psalm of Fire, Silverwind91
* ''Synopsis'': A massive fireball crashes to Earth in the northern part of [[ForgottenRealms Toril]], just before the Time of Troubles begins. But this is no meteor, it's the [[Franchise/{{Halo}} UNSC]] frigate ''Forward Unto Dawn'', containing not only the Master Chief, but also the Arbiter, Sergeant Johnson, and Commander Miranda Keyes.
* Psalm of Fire: Very bloody, but the approach and ability to portray wonder really snagged me into it.
** Comartemis: Seconded. As far as I care, this is Halo 3's canon ending.
*** kknd2: Third. It sounds like a recipe for a disastrous, short and idiotic fic. Then you read it, and it seems to be edging in that direction, then the Drow take the kid gloves off and sheer awesome ensues.

* ''Comments:'' {{Tropers/Grumman}}: The story has a good mix of traditional ''[[DungeonsAndDragons D&D]]'' adventuring with the relationship between the two main characters.
** GM_ace: Seconded. For fans of the {{Eberron}} setting in particular The Rising Mists does a fantastic job of showing the immediate effects of the Day of Mourning, and Welcome to the Jungle does I dare say a better job exploring Q'Barra and the religous/mythological aspects of the setting, including some of the racial tensions of the world (warforged have not been emancipated yet, for instance, and Neana's hatred of Valenar elves is a major plot point). If you like Eberron at all, this is a must-read.

*Recommended by @/AckSed
*''Synopsis'': Ilneval, patron deity of orcs, is tired of their status as the backward, violent {{mooks}} of every story. So he rips the soul out of a random nerd and, after some 'persuading', sticks it in Huruk, tribe leader of the Stonegrinders. There's going to be some ''changes'' around here...
*''Comments'': So yeah, this is a self-insert, but it's less 'superior human' and more 'how much of me is orc and how much is human?'. Excellent worldbuilding and original characters.

* ''Summary'': An IRL multi-year campaign featuring a handful of longtime players taking their party from first level to the mid-teens, facing one EndOfTheWorld scenario after another with judicious [[CrazyPrepared planning]] and [[CrazyEnoughToWork hare-brained mechanics]]. ThePlague, AGodAmI, and KillTheGods are heavily featured. The last few entries imply they might also have accidentally unleashed an EldritchAbomination in the form of a crusty, old treasure-finding parrot... The adventure continues in ''[[http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=309668 Little Big One]]''.
* ''Comments'': The author and his friends find more and more creative ways to take on ridiculous opposition and roll with their [=DM's=] punches on a level that can only be considered professional. And the character roleplaying is damn near suicidal at times. A great read and something like a master class in high level play. Often compared to the above-mentioned [=SilverClawShift=] campaign linked above.
