An accidental necromancer. An unintended sorcerer. A terrified hero. An embarrassment of a villain.
I mean, we've all been there.
In the kingdom of Incudor there are many marvels, from the dragons that patrol its bony steppes to the wizards who hold conference in its mighty cities, to the knights who guard against its dangers. There are Elves in their glimmering kingdoms, and Orcs in their fortified democracies. And then there's the modest hamlet of Lefthand Goat Way, where a goatherd named Ru has raised the dead by accident.
He was drunk. It was dark. He tripped!
As Ru attempts to solve the problem of his unwanted but devoted Denizen from the Pit, he is not alone. What better company than two knights, one the mightiest in the land? (And with such bad anxiety that she can't even figure out when a pretty girl is flirting with her.)
Who more sympathetic than a powerful wizard who acquired their powers through clerical error?
And then there's the scholar from the city, the one with the mysterious past and a host of rumors trailing her. What isn't she telling him, other than the fact that she has an allergy to goat cheese curds?
For the past three years, Act 1 of the webcomic The Stoop Gallants has unfolded online, where it is free to be read in its entirety. Its initial arc now complete, this campaign will bring to print the first act in two volumes.
