Necropolis - The City of the Dead - is the title of my 2005 NaNoWriMo novel. In the month of November, at odd hours of the day and night, I worked hard to tell the stories of a Karmia, a female halfling druid midwife, Aelfwine, a female human ranger from the forest, Alain, a male human bard from the city of Metropolis, Sir Alfred, a paladin and younger brother to the Overlord of Metropolis, and others as they traveled to the city of the dead to talk to the shades of their departed loved ones. There is love, family, food and even romance in this somewhat erotic (at times) fantasy. There's even a wedding and a feast! And nothing ends a day like a good Halfling Cigar and some Elf Brandy!
