- The author has written three excellent fics of the Epistolary Novel variety. The first one is more humorous while the other two are much more serious and are part of an overarching narrative with some of the author's own twists.
Clutching Shadows by Garion Faldor
- recommended by wusch
- Statues: In-Progress
- Synopsis: The new Lord of his family's venerable estate must restore the honor of his line and destroy the horrifying abominations set loose by the mad folly of his ancestor. Gathering together a group of unlikely heroes and mercenaries, they must delve deep into the dark abyss and battle creatures out of nightmare. But the darkest dungeon of all is not one made of stone or iron bars...
- Comment: This rewrite of the game is very well done and close to the game but changes things where needed. It has right now seventeen chapters, including the Prologue and going on.
A Bandit's Tale by Strader
- recommended by Madd Kossack 115
- Status: Completed
- Synopsis: My name ain't important. It's my job that matters. Brigand, bandit, cutthroat, outlaw - call me what you will. I rove and reave this Weald as I like, and you got a problem with that, you can tell it to the sixteen-pounder behind me. This is my story.
- Comment: As the name and description implies, this is a Perspective Flip to one of the many Brigands that are just as dangerous to the player's heroes as the Eldritch Abomination monstrosities. Fully completed, this tale embodies the brutal violence and Anyone Can Die nature of Darkest Dungeon complete with Dismas getting his brains blown out off-screen by a Brigand Fusilier - something that happened in Strader's playthrough of Darkest Dungeon, while giving the story's narrator Severin some Hidden Depths in spite of fully embracing his Villain Protagonist nature.
