Adventuring is a costly affair, and while the tolls are often paid in blood, gold can drain away just as quickly. The party’s trek out of Solium and across the lands of Alcatham has left them with only a handful of gold between them. Fortunately, they have drawn near Camnarael, Alcatham’s capital, where all manner of quests–and rewards–await.
But all is not as expected in the capital. Unusual occurrences have been happening throughout Camnarael: figures in the shadows making unsavory bargains, attackers harassing innocent parishioners, and adventurers from all over the land gathering to partake in a Grand Quest offered by the royal family. Most curious of all are the rumors that speak of a strange artifact serving as the reward for this rare and legendary quest… an artifact that sounds just a bit too familiar to the former NPCs.
Drew Hayes is an author from Texas who has written several books and found the gumption to publish a few (so far). He graduated from Texas Tech with a B.A. in English, because evidently he’s not familiar with what the term “employable” means. You can read more of his growing work at his website, http://www.drewhayesnovels.com, send him mail and movie offers at Novelistdrew@gmail.com, or just follow his twitter: DrewHayesNovels. Drew has been called one of the most profound, prolific, and talented authors of his generation, but a table full of drunks will say almost anything when offered a round of free shots. Drew feels kind of like a D-bag writing about himself in the third person like this. He does appreciate that you’re still reading, though.
Drew would like to sit down and have a beer with you. Or a cocktail. He’s not here to judge your preferences. Drew is terrible at being serious, and has no real idea what a snippet biography is meant to convey anyway. Drew thinks you are awesome just the way you are. That part, he meant. Drew is off to go high-five random people, because who doesn’t love a good high-five? No one, that’s who.
Thanks to the wonderful people at Tantor Audio I’ve been given an MP3 audiobook of “FRED” to giveaway to a reader of this blog. I thought what better way to celebrate a release day of Mr. Hayes’ than to give something of his away! 😀
Now we know that Fred isn’t an NPC. Fred’s a vampire. BUT did you know that there was a tabletop RPG called Vampire: The Masquerade? Yup. I played it when I was in college. I had a blast with it. My husband is currently setting up a long campaign for Dungeons and Dragons, so I’ll have a house full of people a couple of times a month at least. Also, you can catch Drew and other authors playing Pathfinder (I do believe.) on their podcast. So…I’m sure you’re asking what all this has to do with winning this audiobook.
Well, let me tell you! In order to win the audiobook all you have to do is tell me what your favourite table top RPG is. If you’ve never played one, what type of character would you play in one? Put your comment as well as your email address below and we’ll let Mr. Random draw the winner on Wednesday October 26th. You’ll have 3 days from when we send you the email to claim your prize.
