Adventures of Vilven Ledsong

Vilven Ledsong, her legend is one of powerful battles, emotional upheaval, spiritual advancement, and mastery of magic. Discover her journey!


"Vilven came from the sea. She came from the gentle, dreamlike movement of the water and the carefree dancing of the fish below..." (Excerpt from Chapter I: Ouroboros)


Adventures of Vilven Ledsong is a retelling of a single player Dungeons and Dragons campaign. The campaign began over a year ago, and still continues today!

The campaign was started from the love of two storytellers, James Mahoney (The Dungeon Master) and Kaitlin Q. Calkins (The Player). Together they built a special and unique world, full of emotionally driven characters.

Vilven Ledsong, the protagonist, is pushed throughout the story to transform to a higher level spiritually, emotionally, physically, and in magic. She is supported by a group of diverse friends, who become not only her allies but her family.

With the hope of bringing Adventures of Vilven Ledsong to life, the story is currently being written online by Kaitlin Q. Calkins.

The retelling of it is ongoing, and has even begun to be told through visual art from the talents of LivingSilver .  

With your help, Vilven's story can continue to grow into different forms of media, including books, comic books, animation, and even movies.

(Excerpt from Chapter IX: Acquiescence)

"Out of the door, in the opposite corner, an older man of about sixty stalked into the hall. His beard was long, as was his hair, which glittered a mix of silver and black in the low light of the candle he held. His robes were unkempt, but were a pleasant gray and blue color. He seemed very preoccupied with something, Vilven thought, as his eyes were furrowed intensely staring at the floor..." (Excerpt from Chapter V: Catlike)
