Okay, here's the proper story list post for the OFM fics; I'll continually update it and Ghaz can link it to the main page.

A little bit of backstory is in order; around August 2007, Kagerou approached me and told me that he was taking a group I had created (a PMC of magic users) and was porting it over to the Nanoverse, having recently discovered Outer Cadia. We both worked on the OFM's history, ideas and backstory, building up things, with a bit of give and take in our approaches (Kagerou favored more fantasy-ish elements, I was a more mil-sf/tactical/hot blooded approach to things). The OFM was our joint project until Kagerou moved on to real life, so that's why some links will be written by me and some by Kagerou.

In brief, the Order of Freelance Mages are the TSAB's blackops people. Anything secret, anything black, anything that can't see the light of day: these are the guys and girls who do the TSAB's dirty work.
