Hi there,

I wrote this story in early 2017, back when I was first dipping my toe into the world of original fantasy. I planned for it to be the first installment of a long, epic series. After finishing it, however, I realized that I still had a long way to go before knowing exactly how to write one of those. The editing and proofreading is also quite a bit rougher than I would accept now.

I plan to eventually return to the world of Creakylid, probably in the form of a reboot — revising and expanding Evacuate the Masquerade out into a full-length novel.

In the meantime, please enjoy Richard’s first steps into a brand new fantasy world, along with literally a million other people.
