Hey, there, everyone! I am the author of the Hosted Games, Trial of the Demon Hunter, Captive of Fortune, and Foundation of Nightmares.
As much as it pains me to do so, I’m closing down my original TMB WIP thread and making a new one. The reason I’m doing this is because since I added a poll to the original post, that means I can never edit the OP again, and this is becoming a huge pain in the ass. So, this is the brand new shiny thread. There will be much more polls, more stuff added to the OP as I go, and even shameless self-advertising. Without further ado, here’s some stuff about my fantasy epic, The Magician’s Burden:
This one is going to be the first installment in an epic, fantasy romance trilogy set in the world of Lume, which is the same world that my previous three HGs are set in. You are a magician living in a small village outside of the Kingdom of Githrad. At first, you are just living a fairly normal life. You have to go to work, deal with bullies, and pay the rent at your parent’s house.
You can choose between being a guard, a scribe, a farmer, a thief, or a clerk at your parent’s general store. You get to have fun, too, like playing in chess tournaments, sparring, reading at the library, exploring necromancer’s caves, and exploring the woods.
Then, a horde of demons attack your village and everything changes. You will be trained by the powerful and quirky wizard, Melithar the Eccentric, and journey to the kingdom of Githrad with a healer, archer, swordswomen, and a thief who is also a demon huntress, in order to help them fight against a much, much larger threat: an entire army of demons!
Oh, yeah. You’re also hijacked by a demon named Zaleth.
Here is what there WILL be when the book is finished
- 250k words of content.
- 4 different romance options: 2 male, 2 female
- choose your gender: male, female, or non-binary
- choose your sexuality: straight, bi, gay, or asexual
- tons of cool achievements
- a crazy amount of replay ability. Even on the very first choice. Try it!
- lots of (hopefully) three dimensional characters including your family, a wizard, a healer, an archer, a bully and his cronies, multiple demons, a VICE-captain of the guard, a thief who is also a demon huntress, and many more!
- lots and lots of stats, detailing your skills, knowledge, attributes, relationships, and inventory
- three different kinds of magic for you to choose from: stealth, light, or dark
ALL sorts of feedback is appreciated. Typo catching, bug catching, suggestions, comments, etc.
As stated before, TMB is set in the same world as my previous trilogy, and it also shares three main characters with those stories. If you’re interested in my other HGs, you can check them out here:
