Welcome!

Congratulations on finding the main page for How Best to Use a Sword! Posts here are sorted chronologically, so scrolling down from here will show you the most recent posts. If you’re looking for older posts, the best way to get to them is probably to use the two masterpost pages: the chronological one for if you want the whole series in the order it was posted, and the individual ones for each story on its own. The series is designed to read in whatever order you want, and you don’t need to read every story if one or more of them has content that you don’t want to see.

If you like the story and are so inclined I’d really appreciate the occasional vote on topwebfiction.com, which is how most people find this site and a lot of other great serial stories online. And I’d be remiss in self-promoting if I didn’t tell you I have a Patreon for anyone who wants to and can afford to support the story financially. The whole story is entirely free to read and the only bonus content on Patreon is the right to vote in polls to decide which side characters get featured in their own chapters, so you’re not at all missing anything by choosing not to give me your money.

I hope you enjoy your time here! You can find more information about the story in the About and World pages, and I’m always here to answer questions as well!
