The Love of the Quest 

By Larry N. Martin

I grew up playing Dungeons and Dragons, and loved reading books by David Eddings, R.A. Salvatore, and the other authors of the Forgotten Realms, as well as many similar novels. They brought the kind of quest adventure to life that I enjoyed from role-playing games, and let me come along for the ride in my imagination.

The Splintered Crown is my tribute to the kinds of books that taught me to love the fantasy genre. It’s set in my own universe, so it’s not tied into any game platform, but my goal was to create the feel and fun of those quest novels that offered heroes, monsters, gods, and gold. It’s a “comfort food” kind of read, a rousing adventure that is a refuge at the end of a long day. In a world that is complicated and uncertain, there’s a place for pure escapism. Here’s your chance to escape into a world with adventure, humor, brave heroes, and heroines, wily adversaries, and a tavern you’ll never forget!

The Splintered Crown
A Tankards and Heroes Novel
by Larry N. Martin
Genre: Epic Fantasy, Adventure Quest 

A medieval fantasy with a party of adventurers all ready to make a name for themselves and earn some gold.

Tankards and Heroes is set in the city of Kortufan, where spies, assassins, mercenaries, arms dealers, rebels, smugglers, and informants do dirty deals dirt cheap.

The Poxy Dragon is a rough bar outside the worst part of the medieval Silk Road. It takes serious courage just to walk into the place, not only from its reputation but because of the rough clientele, questionable food, awful beer, and abysmal hygiene. Lots of taverns in Kortufan are home to ruffians and illegal dealings, but the Poxy Dragon is the proving ground for heroes - with a cemetery out back for the ones who don’t make the cut.

Lady Leota, the resident demigoddess at the Poxy Dragon, sends would-be heroes to different realms on quests. Once committed, there is no turning back, and if they want their reward, every party member must return through the portal – dead or alive.

Larry N. Martin Larry N. Martin is the author of the new sci-fi adventure novel Salvage Rat, and the new portal fantasy series, The Splintered Crown, A Tankards and Heroes novel.
