I've been playing WoW and EQ for the past decade and all the Final Fantasy's since the first one in the late eighties. I write a series of books titled Magefable which I'm raising funds to publish on Kickstarter.com. It follows the adventures of two mice, one of which is a geomancer visiting the temples of the elementals in order to gain the power to defeat the cruel lion Sinvicious. The series is fully illustrated and is highly influenced by RPGs as well as the Redwall series of books. If you can, please check it out. Backers of my series can get signed copies of the books with their name printed on the thank you page, as well as bookmarks, trading cards, art prints, and more.
Durbin has always dreamed of becoming a swashbuckling adventurer like his legendary father. But unfortunately he's stuck in the secluded valley forest of Verdancia, far away from the sway and swagger of the sea. On one fateful evening a mouse named Clove and her spear hog companion Herod stumble into his village. They had escaped from the terrible lion Sinvicious who wants to stop Clove before she can gain the full power of a geomancer--a mage with the ability to control the elements. Fire, water, wind, lightning, all can be controlled by a geomancer. They can fly, turn themselves invisible, make their skin as solid as rock, shift the earth, and even control life... Although all Clove can do at this point is make weeds move.
The next morning when Durbin awakes he finds Clove and Herod gone. Unable to resist the call of adventure, he journeys out into the woods to find them, dragging along his reluctant friend Morro the hedge hog, who would rather be sitting at home eating scones and berries. On their way they meet other new friends such as Reverie, a wounded sparrow who can mesmerize animals with his singing, and Bailey, a courageous and boisterous young squirrel who is hunting for a dragon to tame. But as Durbin and Morro seek Clove and Herod, so does Krochek the Hunter--the most vile, savage rat ever to emerge from Sinvicious's kingdom. Along with his horde of bloodthirsty rodents he will tear the forest apart in his effort to find them.
