The Iron Teeth: A Goblin's Tale

by ClearMadness

Original COMPLETED Adventure Comedy Fantasy Anti-Hero Lead Grimdark Magic Male Lead Non-Human lead

A new, darker age is dawning. The greed of kings has ignited a seemingly endless war. As men fight, the monsters of the untamed wilds are devouring the frontier. Villages are abandoned as fields go fallow. Murderous bandits roam the desolation. 

None of that matters to a nameless goblin slave. He just wants to eat as much food as he can shove into his mouth when no one is looking, but fate runs a twisted course, so instead he is whisked away to the far off Iron Teeth Mountains. To stay alive, he will have to evolve into something more than a simple goblin, and carve a bloody path through the forests of the North. 

However, first he has to get over his crippling fear of trees, and survive in a place where everything considers him to be the perfect size for a quick snack...

Fresh and Savage

The story shows the world from the point of view of a goblin among humans while big chages happen in his tribe.

Really enjoying your work.  

To sum it up, your pacing is good albeit a little slow compared to most of the fictions on rrl.  It does work though with the character and story line.

Story is unique, I haven't read anything quite like it.  

Grammar is almost 100%, only a few errors to be found

Character is pretty cool.  Not OP, not underpowered, just adept in his skill set.  I don't like how overconfident he is, and I'm surprised he hasn't been killed yet, but I guess that's just part of the character.

ALL IN ALL a very good read and much better than many recent litRPG reads that I've gone through with. 10/10 would buy it off amazon

Wow. Im hooked now

Refreshing idea to tell a story from the viewpoint of a goblin. The progress of the MC is slow, but far more satisfying then in other stories. No OPnes gained with to chapters crappy writing. This is how its done!

and lastly:

I absolutely love this story and how you present Blacknail to your Readers .

His Perspective is also just how I would picture it for myself .

Your overall writing style is great , and gives the reader a proper chance to picture the scene .

The Characters you create are mostly neat too , but I just really can't follow the way everyone besides Blacknail thinks somehow . Or is that intentional ?

Wonderful New Take on Goblins and a Perfect Gem

The story is original, solid with great story and even better character progression. This is well written from the perspective of a goblin trying to survive and find his place in a mans world. Its not a resurrection or skill story, which is overdone in my opinion. The idea of survival, instinct, tribe, and self comes up quite a bit. If you like to consider how a goblin may think this is an amazing tale that is well written. The side characters and change of scenery here and there only adds to a story I continue to enjoy. Cheers to ClearMadness, I look forward to seeing Blackmail and his adventures still to come. Thanks for the writting and entertainment!

A fun thrilled story

Just finished all chapters so far and I keep finding the story very original and interesting. The characters and specially Blacknail are very well carved, they have personality, their own thoughts and wishes making it fun to learn more about them and how they develop around the story as a whole and with the other characters.

 

I highly recommend reading it, mainly because it doesnt have the typical structure as mostly all stories. There are unique classes, even the commonly used mage has his own unique touch to it regarding magic, and the vessels, are like supersoldiers that depend on a magical drink to boost themselves; Heck, even the mosnters are quite unique and different from the standard (besides the goblin so far).

 

Lastly, I tip my hat to you "Clear Madness" for an amazing time reading the story.

I'm not really good in being a critical person when it comes to something I enjoy so much. I have read many stories alot worse than this and couldnt stop. This one though, was binding me from the first chapter. The atmosphere is amazing, the level of detail a perfect balance - not too much unnecessary stuff, not too few. Sometimes when the author describes something I wonder if it's important later in the story. So I read every sentence with concentration. First story I read and am afraid of reaching teh end of the released chapters ... :(

Reminds me a little of Re:Monster

Short: READ THIS!

Great and unique worth reading

I love that he doesn't instantly become a human hybrid or something else common in these stories makes this one a step above.
