Explore, Build, Conquer.

The Divine Playground Universe

Welcome to the ultimate toybox — a multiverse-spanning pile of left-over fantasy worlds, created by the gods of magic for their own fleeting amusement. Each has its own rules, its own dangers, and its own rewards. Explore freely as you will, but remember, only the powerful may ultimately find victory.

And to become powerful, you have no choice but to grow.

Trial by Conquest

The battle-royal, civilisation build-off

This is the Trial by Conquest — a battle-royal, civilisation build-off.

Lose and you die.

Win and you rule over the fantasy world of Isolation as king!

Maximus Rum would rather not die. In fact, right now what he’d most rather is find his pants and figure out what the hell is going on. The beach he woke up on is empty and quiet.

But he’d better get a move on.

The Trial has already begun.

A village-building, dungeon-crawling LitRPG — taking inspiration from games such as HoMM, Civilization, ANNO, TotalWar, Warcraft, and others.

May contain: Violence, combat, fights, etc. Sexual humour, references, descriptions, and debatably non-explicit acts. Moral ambiguity and occasional sophistication. Nuts.

Status: Book One (Ongoing)

Richard Struggle

Hero Logistics: Weapons — Magic — Damsels

It all starts with a prophecy. As many stories often do.

The secret world of magic on Earth is in trouble. Trouble of the witch-hunt, nuclear kind, if you catch my drift. If you’re a mage. You need to get the hell out, right now.

Thankfully, the prophecy provided another world to bugger off to — a magic trunk hidden in the basement, leading to a completely new universe. Gods can be so considerate sometimes.

Only one slight problem. Earth has over one million mages.

Cue the largest magical migration the world has ever seen.

Welcome to the tropical pocket universe of Creakylid.

Creakylid is lush. It’s sunny. Islands spread out in all directions. The air is fresh and salty. A whole people are now building new towns, founding new businesses, and making a new life.

But this is the Divine Playground. So naturally someone is playing a game.

Despite the mage council’s best efforts, conspiracy and corruption are popping up all over Creakylid like weeds. Secret societies, thieves guilds, and mafia syndicates. See that smoky den hidden under that tavern? That was built last Tuesday.

Annoyingly, for the mage council, this is a time for heroes.

Into this ever-evolving cluster fuck walks Richard Struggle, a hard-working orphan with a very suspicious gift. And he’s decided to be a hero specialising in logistics. After all, the other heroes are going to need someone to keep them well-supplied, and he might just be the man for the job.

But first, he has to solve a mystery…

Richard Struggle: Evacuate the Masquerade is currently being re-written into a full-length novel and the original novella is now available to read online for free.

Fan-Fiction

Dodging Prison and Stealing Witches

Spanning three books and over 600,000 words, one of the internet’s most followed and controversial works of fan-fiction is still going strong. Dodging Prison and Stealing Witches began publication in 2015 and has since gained a cult following among those who suspect that, considering much of what Harry Potter went through, things really should have turned out quite differently than they did.

Magical Britain is not a children’s fantasy sandpit. It is a world of intrigue, mystery, politics, and power. A place where those with nothing prosper only from the grace of those who have everything. In this Alternative Universe of J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World, magic is a tool of the establishment, a privilege to be jealously guarded, and the final word in any debate that has moved too far beyond the realm of polite discussion.

Harry Potter has already been locked up for ten years in the hellhole brig of Azkaban for a crime he didn’t commit, and his traitorous brother, the not-really-boy-who-lived, has royally messed things up. After meeting Fate and Death, Harry is given a second chance to squash Voldemort, dodge a thousand years in prison, and snatch everything his hated brother holds dear.

But this isn’t the Harry Potter you think you know.

This is a Harry Potter warped by seven years of ‘education’ by his second-worst enemy. This is a Harry Potter with few scruples.

This is a Slytherin Harry Potter.

Now Magical Britain has to face its greatest challenge yet, and it is one of their own making.
