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 Divine Playground 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.
