The Swanky Boar is a most enigmous tavern where one can find odd short stories, many told directly by denizens who patron the smoke filled establishment in the desert city of Thuron. Meet Ivan the Lipless and a host of other folks whose lives have become tangential to the notorious brawler and swordsman–Fist La’brau.
>>> The Thrones of Lumindor
She’s fierce and confident–a formidable force drifting across the mother realm, and she’s been harnessed for too long. The story takes place before the birth of Siernod upon the mother realm known as Lumindor where the immortal champions roam and Shadow is a constant threat struggling against the watchers of Mann.
Shadow seeks to seep through the cracks of Lumindor and an age old sorceror vows to stand against the birth of a realm. See what happens when she engages in a race with a weapon of the ages in hand against time and a pair of pompous paladins seeking to save the unborn realm from certain doom. Will it be her or Lumindor’s own champions or neither that arise victorious?
