The Wandering Inn by pirateaba


An inn is a place to rest, a place to talk and share stories, or a place to find adventures, a starting ground for quests and legends.

In this world, at least. To Erin Solstice, an inn seems like a medieval relic from the past. But here she is, running from Goblins and trying to survive in a world full of monsters and magic. She’d be more excited about all of this if everything wasn’t trying to kill her.

But an inn is what she found, and so that’s what she becomes. An innkeeper who serves drinks to heroes and monsters–

Actually, mostly monsters. But it’s a living, right?

This is the story of the Wandering Inn.

Note: The Wandering Inn contains some graphic violence and harsh language.

A serialized novel, updating twice weekly

May 4, 2017: The Wandering Inn starts like a great many webfics that spice up Portal Fantasy with the use of RPG tropes (skills, level ups, etc.).

You follow Erin as she is teleported in a fantasy world without any preparation, and tries as well she can to survive and create a new life in this place.

Fortunately for Erin, she finds refuge into an abandoned inn, and then meets several persons as strange as [more . . .]

This isekai deconstruction is infuriating in places, but I couldn’t drop it even when I wanted to

By Naeddyr, member

Jul 20, 2017: Erin is transported to fantasy land and starts leveling as the [Innkeeper] class.

Sounds like a fun, cozy little story, right? No, that is WRONG, rhetorical questioner. This is a drama-filled, hold-onto-your-pants, INFURIATING story about a girl transported into a fantasy world, all partially deconstructed with a huge death-count for side-characters, and friends turning enemies at the drop of a stupid hat.

Expect character death, self-destructive character flaws, two gazillion world-ending threats [more . . .]

One of the best, but i’m dropping it.

By L Nimbus, author of The Minotaur Paladin

Jun 5, 2019: The Wandering Inn is something I love. It’s something I admire. I have followed it for a year, and never regretted it. I jumped in every Tuesday and Saturday, gorged myself on each paragraph. And now, I’m dropping it. Don’t take this as a statement of it being bad, or even getting bad. The Wandering In has proven to be nothing but pure quality.

When I talk about it, I hold it to the best of the best. I compare it [more . . .]
