Well, many of you have purchased and read The Erevis Cale Trilogy Omnibus. My sincere thanks for that.
When Phil Athans and I were discussing the two short stories we’d include as additional content in the Omnibus, we kicked around the idea of including Another Name for Dawn, which is Cale’s origin story, originally published in Dragon #277. In the end, we decided not to go with the origin story (because it felt out of sequence with the trilogy) and instead opted for All the Sinners Saints, and Soulbound, both of which fit better into the chronology of the Omnibus.
Since then, I’ve received lots of requests for Cale’s origin story, which is very hard to find (the e-version of Dragon 277, sold by Paizo, does not include the story for licensing reasons). But no longer. If you’re so inclined, you can download the pdf of Another Name for Dawn by clicking below. I hope you enjoy (this is converted text that I cannot modify, so if there are any formatting issues or the like, my apologies in advance).
