The Trickster's Tale 2: Gnomes Don't Rule!

The Trickster's Tale 2: Gnomes Don't Rule!
ONGOING
538 pages

Be careful when demanding reparations from gods. They rarely own up to their mistakes.

Due to a goddess's shortsighted error, Perry finds himself transported to a distant Universe with new proportions and a different identity. Instead of cowering before the deity, he demands she opens a portal home or provides reparations for him and his bereaved family. Unfortunately, standing up for himself doesn't earn Perry respect. Instead, she curses him with cowardice, limiting his combat and magical potential. 

Little does the goddess know that nothing can stand in the way of Perry's sheer will. If brute strength and arcane might won't get him the justice he desires, wit and creativity will. 

Perry's first target? A goblin shaman. Then, the world.

And so begins, the bard's ballad.


Posting 5 times a week from Monday to Friday!

Bard's Ballad takes place in the same extended Universe as my other story, The Houndsman. It's set on a distant 'disk', though. As a result, the magic system is unique in comparison and has a harder LitRPG system. While the story utilises stats, it doesn't take them seriously and occasionally makes fun of regular LitRPG mechanics.

This story is co-authored by J Pal.
He originally wrote it as The Halfwit Halfling but got tired of number-heavy LitRPGs.
I've taken over the story-boarding and the tale uses names/locations from the old story but not the same plot progression.
I dropped the prison break theme and have given the book a proper villain (a goblin shaman). As a result, the story shouldn't be mistaken as a slice of life despite the protagonist's combat limitations. 
Perry uses wit to overcome challenges instead of brawn or arcana.

The fae are sick of humankind violating their treaties. Their Wyld armies are taking to the field, and the world is at war.

After serving two terms in the Iron Army's Building Division, Flint Woodson is done with it all. He wants nothing more than to find a remote settlement, work as a guard or a builder, and find a wife. Flint doesn't care about filling his remaining nodes with skill stones or wasting his life looking for a class. Wyldbloods like him aren't destined for greatness.

Flint's plans go out the window when the Universe sends him a Life Quest.

Reawaken the Sleeping Fort.
Protect the village of Lea's Slumber.
Give the Champion of Equilibrium time to grow.

Saying no wasn't an option when the quest involved the word 'Champion'.
