Hello fellow writers/readers!

I'm in the last third of my comic fantasy novel (80.000 words so far in 16 chapters) and the time has come to open the project for further beta readers with a penchant for comic fantasy (people who like to read guys like Terry Pratchett, Douglas Adams, Tom Holt, Christopher Moore, or fun stuff in general).

Requirements. You should be able to handle hilarity and absurdity and be prepared for the world to end. If anyone would like to have a look how the apocalypse transpires, be my guest. The idea would be to give chapters out one by one, and to get some feedback in return - feel free to point out whatever you have in mind regarding the text. You can opt out anytime though in case the text isn't for you.

Goodies. You get the text, which I consider a good thing. The novel also comes with a map, a professional cover illustration, and chapter illustrations are in the works - all of them will be provided for betas. If you make it through and someone dares to publish the thing, you'll get a mention. Check it out - the world only ends once.

Introduction. In every proper fantasy world serious troubles are bound to happen – big, cataclysmic ones. Now, the peculiar Princedom of Zarrafanda is hardly a whole world, but it will get its share when everything goes downhill. Then again, the knight in shining armor will save the day, defeat some half- or three-third-baked villain and get the girl, right? Well, there’s competition: Try a has-been archmage for a change, teaming up with a kleptomaniac lovelorn halfling, a cheeky dwarf, a hulk of a barbarian for the rough stuff, plus a sensuous elf and a healer on her way to find herself. These guys and gals will take care of things – if someone would only let them!

An epic journey awaits, complete with heroes, monsters and gods, and everything in between and behind things: like raining fish, barking trees, icebergs and their tips, and buildings on excursion. And it all began with that dratted apocalypse dropping by for evening tea...

If you're interested, let me know via webmaster@santharia.com! cool Thanks in advance for your interest.

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
