Extras in Albion | World Anvil

Extras

Every so often, I want to spend a bit more time with a character, or there's a story that doesn't quite fit into a book. That's where these extras come in. They probably won't make much sense if you haven't read the relevant book, though!   Check out the Books and extras timeline for how the different sections of these tales fit into the larger world of Albion.  

Getting these stories

As of the beginning of 2024, you can get a download link for almost all of these extras from the pages linked below. Each page also has more details about that extra and where it fits into the overall timeline and the related books.   You can download the files in epub, mobi, and PDF, whichever you prefer. BookFunnel has good help for getting them onto whatever device you like to do your reading on.   For folks who've joined me on my newsletter, my Patreon (at any level), or the Albion's Delights Discord., you can also find links to these extras (and new ones as they come out) in those places. Choose the link that says "Extras" at the top or bottom of any newsletter, look in the Completed Extras collection on Patreon, or in the #releases-and-extras channel on the Discord.  

The two exceptions

These are Ancient Trust, as well as the most recently released extra (currently As The Ground Shifts, released December 22nd, 2023).   I keep these as a particular thank you for people who've connected with me via my newsletter, my Patreon (at any level), or the Albion's Delights Discord. I hope you'll join me one of those places! As I release new extras, the previous recent release will become available for everyone.

A tidbit

Giles interviews assistants

This is quite short, so enjoy two brief scenes that take place during the first chapter of Wards of the Roses, where Giles Lefton interviews two possible candidates to assist him. (This one is so short it's not worth formatting into a file, click through to read it.)
