(Fantasy Adventure) The Kobold are coming. As the tide of Gathering Dark threatens not only the elves, but the dwarves, and shattered remnants of the human populace, only a few stand in their way: only they can restore the lost City of Ai. 

And then there's the dragon...

Sorcery, ancient magic, sword play, and high fantasy take the stage in an epic tale of good vs evil. Can a tetchy dwarven monk, a couple of sarcastic elves, and a dragon with a penchant for venison restore the Lost City of Ai and the legendary Eyes of Glan. Or will the ever flowing tide of Kobold finally take the Realm?

Epic! And you've hit just about everything you expect in a sword and sorcery piece. Except the comic relief bard and the dragon. Dragon coming soon I know!

An exciting start. Very good action. I have to sheepishly admit, however, that I had to look up the word "chittering." :-)  Well done.

What a great start. Compelling description and action all the while hinting well at the relationships among and between the characters. And, you can write well! World is your oyster!
It's been far, far too long since I've read one of your stories, Gav! And so it begins. ✨

Beg pardon, but this sounds like an RPG layout. X3 I know I'm a geek.

So wait, Are they all dead? Or did they just put a seal on the sword?
