Fera World Stories
Here are a collection of stories set in the world of ‘Fera’, a Custom fantasy universe I created for my tabletop RPG’s and my novels. Such stories include “The Man Who Would Be King” and “The Ten Rings” Novels while also containing series like “The Shikari” and a vast array of short stories.
The Man who would be king
Andreas Vandersryke is a simple man with a shaded past. Nexanda Tora is a Dragonborn youngling who has escaped her horrible past. The who bumped into each other and now travel together.
A vast boom in technology has shifted the Ilmarian Imperium into the Flintlock Era, pushing forward with Cannon and rifle, the age of Magic was thought to be dying with the rise of the Gunslingers. Using gunpowder as their fuel, Gunslingers are the rising stars in magic. Able to use their magical powers to control explosions, musket balls mid-flight and gunpowder.
Following Andreas and Nexanda as they uncover the dangerous and dark "Hand of Orisil", learn about the history of Nexanda's lost heritage and uncover whom Andreas Vandersryke really is and why he is out to kill the King.

This was a commissioned piece that was on its way to completion when the commissioner abandoned the project.
Deciding not to leave it to waste, I finished it. It was a collaborative writing project with a slightly more smutty tone than I am used to. However, I enjoyed writing it!
