For The Greatest Good

In short....

For The Greatest Good is a serial blog story being written collectively by myself and my friend, Dana MacDonald, in which we feature ourselves as the Main Characters in a world caled The Realms. It began like most of our stories like this with he and I goofing around on skype, and ending up setting out on this grand adventure that soon became too good a story to pass up. So now I'm featuring it on my blog as we continue the saga, neither of us knowing where it shall lead, or what dangers lie in wait for our coming.

Below is a brief description of the world and our personas there, and at the very bottom are links to each completed segment, other related posts, and the pinterest board. Enjoy!

The Story
Our order is under attack.
But this is not a fight for survival.
This is a fight for truth,
For freedom,
For hope.
These immortal values withstand time and test,
Proving one to be the most complex,
The most mysterious,
The most powerful among them all.
This is a fight for love.
The World

The Realms, a diverse land where knowing what to expect is a short lived comfort rather than a reality. A place where fact and fantasy blend, familiar and imaginary dance amidst the horizons, and dreams and hardships walk the same path.

Main Characters

Two leaders in The Order, a band of warriors whose unorthodox methods and steadfast support of ancient moral virtues has sidelined them to characters of hopeful legends.


Penny Kearney

Visionary. Founder of The Order and though not direct commander in every scenario or field, largely responsible for keeping the knights unified both to each other, and to the core beliefs that drive their mission.

Age: 20 yrs.

Weapon: Runebinder, a lightweight broadsword with a blue topaz fitted in the pommel.

Armor: Light compliment of leather armor (breastplate, pauldrons, vambraces, shin guards)

Dana MacDonald

Loyalist. Strong field commander and willing helper to those in need, with integrity of character and steadfast faithfulness to The Order and its quest.

Age: 19 yrs.

Weapon: PathSeeker, modified claymore with a sapphire fitted into the pommel.

Armor: Light chain mail and leather vambraces and shin guards.

The Chronicles

As this story takes place from the perspective of both the characters shown above, some of the sections of text will be written in first person by either Dana or Penny. At the beginning of each section, the specific author will be declared, and the chronicle will continue from there from the point of view of that author. Also, as this adventure is being written in partnership and without prior knowledge of coming events, you will be experiencing the story in more or less the same fashion as its authors. There may be, therefore, some errors in its recounting. Pray forgive these discrepancies.

The Schedule

As time to write is pressing and sporadic amidst many other tasks, there will be no patterned timetable for the release of each section of this ongoing story, but be assured that an attempt to produce at least one body of text each month will be made. Likely there will be more, depending on the length of the account, but I will make no promises so that none may be disappointed in the event that this proves not to be the case.
