Hey there, NAIN backers. You were tolerant of my ham-fisted illustrations in order to get a story of magic with wand-waving wizards, cunning warriors, and giant egos sneering their way across the political landscape of a fantasy world. Now, you can get something rather similar, but with a lovely professional cover by Pat Loboyko. You can see said cover at this link.
What's inside that cover is a 90,000 word novel set in Rob Heinsoo and Jonathan Tweet's exquisite fantasy world, as presented in the game 13th Age. I've been fortunate enough to be involved in their game of big spells, quirky humor, strange monsters and fascinating characters from (almost) its beginning, and I'd barely finished reading the pre-publication PDF before I had an idea for a novel. That novel is written and is ready to be published. Moreover, you can read the first two chapters here and see for yourself what all the fuss is about.
Pledging for the KS not only gets you the novel, it subsidizes ancillary fiction involving my characters. Tales by three talented authors are already in the works, but I'd kinda love to see what Tweet himself would make from my minor characters. If you're curious too -- or if you just want one of the bargain book bundles from the many reward tiers -- please consider pledging in support of this project. Not much time remains!
