Oh. My. Word.

The Phoenix Requiem (which is a wonderful web comic you should all be reading, and if you haven't read Inverloch, which is now complete, you should read that too) has the best. April Fool's joke. Ever. And I TOTALLY did not see it coming.

Get it quick, before it's gone! Although it's much funnier in the whole context of the story... so if you want the full effect, start from Page One.
I am not entirely sure how I got hooked on Inverloch, considering that the cute little kiddy elves at the beginning would ordinarily have put me right off, and the story's hero is a Person of Fur, which would ordinarily make me go *yawn*. However, I'm glad I stuck with it through the first chapter, because then things really started getting interesting. In fact, they got so interesting that before long I had caught up on the whole story -- all 630-something pages of it. Unfortunately, I am now forced to wait for it to update, but at least the author posts new pages on a regular basis and plans to have the whole thing done by January.

Anyway, iit really is a good story, with engaging characters and some unexpected twists. So check it out, unless you really hate elves. Or quest fantasy. Or both.

Speaking of elves (and fairies, and rock giants, and clueless university students) The Dreamland Chronicles is also entertaining, and it updates every day. The 3D modelling is sometimes a bit clunky-looking, but at other times it's really amazing. Certainly the characters' faces are very expressive, and the story seems to be well thought out.
