An (Almost) Epic Tale
The Mis-Adventurers: An (Almost) Epic Tale is the first book in my new adult comedic arcanepunk fantasy series, The Mis-Adventurers.
It follows a motley, dysfunctional crew of aspiring heroes who bumble and bicker their way along as they try to not make the world a worse place than it already is.
This first book in the series follows Thomas Edward Overdale (aka "Tom"), of Farshire. A little halfling with big dreams, Tom is determined to honor his late father's memory by writing an epic and getting published by the Bards' Guild.
Along the way, he meets Ashwen, a racist elf chosen one who's trying to discover whatever her destiny is supposed to be.
There's also Henry, a cowardly templar of the High Church, who just wants to help people.
Cole is a mercenary with a secret, determined to change human society for the better.
Beryl is a fugitive dwarf, who made his living as a professional wrestler… until recently.
Rounding out the lot is G'naark, the lizard wizard. He's the youthful kobold servant of the famed Lord Pelligast of Greenridge. G'naark's job is to ensure the party doesn't stray from their mission and to report his findings to his master.
Can these overly-diverse misfits learn to work together? Will they kill one another trying? Only time will tell.
The Mis-Adventurers: An (Almost) Epic Tale is scheduled for publication in 2019.
