Over the many years of the Wild Hunt, feeble attempts have been made by a few to chronicle the numerous characters that have populated a rather large portion of my imagination.  In this volume I have made an effort to consolidate these stories just for fun with no real expectation of publishing.  My primary deterrent as always has been a lack of cooperation from the various players who have, for however briefly a time, endeavored to give life to these creations.  At last, as I grow older, I have found a need and drive to expand upon what, in almost all cases, have been nothing but a brief outline based more on the powers desired rather than a true effort to flesh out the characters.

Here, at the beginning, I have been concentrating not on my more long term and established characters but the most recent, as for some reason I am more attuned to this group than my older friends.  In the near future, I hope to begin working back to other characters but as I write in fits and starts, I cannot be sure when that might happen.  For now   I work as the mood hits, in other words, rather slowly, so bear with me.

What follows is a compilation of thousands of hours of online gaming involving more than two dozen people so before you think I must have a memory like an elephant know that I cheated and 'recorded’ over ten thousand pages of 'chat logs’ with the intension of doing just this, rendering it all into a more or less coherent story.   Therefore it must be noted that much of what I write was a direct collaboration with my players and while some contributions were of somewhat limited value, I have made every effort to capture the essence of the original player’s character concept.  If I fail in this, the individual players have only themselves to blame for not providing a more complete picture for me.
