Less than Noble is out, and I’m putting a little more publishing experience into its launch. The price is low (for the launch weekend it’s free!) and I have asked a few friendly websites to display it.
If you’re on the fence about picking it up, here’s some insight into the book:
- It is a combination of Flintlock and Fantasy. Sharpe, Hornblower, Aubrey type stories that have magic and monsters. War and Peace and Magic.
- King’s law controls the use of magic, including magical weapons, potions, healing, etc.
- Powerful nobles have royal charters that allow them companies of heroic adventurers with unlimited use of magic. These are called Sicarian Charters
- In Less than Noble, the Double Duchess, Chandolyn Vusson, hires sicarians as bodyguards for a visit to her enemy. She needs them.
- Big battles. There are fights of all sizes in Less than Noble, but what sets this book apart is the clash of armies. Instead of a duel, nobles with a problem can call each other out in a set piece battle. They arrange their armies like a chess game and have at it.
- Muskets, cannons, crossbows, cavalry, swords, armour, spells, healing potions, . You get it all and more with Less than Noble.
