Help please! I've always been a big fantasy reader and am just getting into to Magic. I've started reading the Magic stories but it's so.. confusing... especially the change over to online only around RTR. Any explanation or a site you could point me to that has all the stories listed in order or if you have any tips would be much appreciated. The Magic story website isn't much help. (I've read everything from Magic Origins onwards). THANKS!
My Magic Storyline Resources thread is the best place to start. Scroll down to where it says ‘The Post-Mending Story’ in bold, and I’ve listed all the plot-related stories (and a few I just like a lot) in roughly their release order. You can read from the very top, but it’s a lot of explanations and links to things you don’t really need to check out yet.
Do NOT read In the Teeth of Akoum, The Quest for Karn, or Test of Metal. The first two are just not particularly good and you’re better off reading a summary. The last one is about a non-canon as you can get without being explicitly told by the creative team to ignore it.
Let me know if you have any questions. I’m assuming you want to start with the story of the current characters, because going back to the start of Magic fiction in the 90′s is infinitely more complicated, and not necessary to understand today’s story.
