The Wandering Inn

[3:37 AM] pirateaba: STOP ANALYZING MY RETCONS.

This is a fansite for The Wandering Inn, a web serial. I use the Internet Archive, and, where applicable, the Royal Road version, to show how the text of the story has changed over time.

Notes

Most of the changes are uninteresting typo fixes, but there are some important updates in volumes 1 and 2, related to how the system evolved as Innverse grew in scope. These differences are especially important for readers who started reading on Royal Road, as they did not receive corrected chapters.

Some selected changes:

If you need more guidance, this Fandom page contains an annotated list of changes.

The algorithm used here is a tweaked version of the breakerbreaker method, optimized for TWI's prose. Only the differing phrases are provided on this site; for the full context, refer to the original chapter text.

I've also written some unofficial 5e D&D homebrew for The Wandering Inn, and have word counts for each chapter.

These data were last updated on November 28, 2022.

The code that generates this site is available on GitHub. This site is made possible by the free labor and services provided by a bunch of people. Please consider supporting Neocities, the Internet Archive, or me with a donation.

FAQ

Where are the data for (chapter title)?
Certain chapters aren't tracked. The most obvious ones are chapters that are still behind a Patreon password. Other chapters were written as Wordpress "pages" and thus aren't automatically tracked, such as the real April Fool's chapter, or the hidden rat interludes. These could be tracked, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.
Why don't you exclude the author's notes and fanart galleries from your chapter text?
I don't trust in my ability to instruct the computer to detect and remove these, and I'm not going to do it by hand, so this is the best compromise.
Why do your word counts differ from (other word count tracking site)?
See the answer to the previous question. Also, there is no consistent definition of word count, so pick whichever source satisfies your desire for numbers-go-up, and/or stop assuming that there is such a thing as an authoritative count.
