Of Monsters & Valons: A Dragonband Anthology
An anthology of epic fantasy adventures, featuring all new stories about monsters and monster hunters from some big name authors!
Of Monsters & Valons will be a collection of approximately 15 epic fantasy short stories written by veteran authors and skilled newfound authors alike. These stories will be exciting, pulse-pounding adventures that throw the reader head first into tales of terrifying monsters and hardened monster hunters (Valons).
With this anthology, we will be going for a nostalgic vibe (much like Dragonlance or Forgotten realms) mixed with a slightly darker, grittier feel. Also we strive for relatable characters, emotional depth, and perhaps even some life lessons. We captured this perfectly on our first anthology, and we are confident we can do so again!
The world of Harthx is a vibrant setting filled with many different races, whether your looking for classic, unique, mix breeds and mutants. Here are a few: The wood elves fight anyone who cross their borders whether they are good or evil, sea elves fight for control of the depths against a race called the batora, minotaurs and symeon battle each other for supremacy in the deserts. Cyclops, Wendigo, Centaurs, Dwarves, Gnomes, Trow, and many others!
Harthx is also home to many different monsters whether you're looking for Dragons, Griffins, and Basilisks that fight for the skies, or the Kralle, Trolls, Spriggans that squabble over the lands. Harthx has everything you're looking for in a fantasy setting!

Risks and challenges
We are very confident that this project will run smoothly. Though, this is our first kickstarter we've ever done, we have been doing a lot of research and planned on how to avoid the many problems you can run into. This is our 2nd anthology we've done, so we are happy to say we shouldn't run into any problems there either!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
