Setting: Drakia & Candrama (in a somewhat medieval time), both countries on the planet Terrax which is inhabited only by fantastical beings. (Well, nearly all my stories take place there. So did I really have to write that? ) Plot: Jamie Strawford, member of Woodmoore's city guard, got imprisoned. Not for stealing, not for murder, not for any crime. But simply because he was transformed into a peeron. Now being one of the most feared creatures on Terrax he has to flee the pyre. With the help of some unexpected allies he eventually manages to reach the only place left for him to hide: The colony of the mountain peerons. Its leaders however demand that in one whole year he has to prove himself worthy as "real" peeron.
The search for a new home, saving the desert peerons from a terrible fate, and the war against the silver dragons will only be the main parts of his adventures. As his main task is to find his right place amongst the peerons, choosing between eight different professions and ten possible love interests...
About peerons: The peerons are a whole new race and possibly the creation I put the most effort into. I don't want to spoil anything here, since during the game all the facts about them can be discovered, but let's point out their most important characteristics.
1.: They hunt down elves, demons, gnomes, etc. in order to survive. So they are a threat to Terrax's inhabitants and extremely dangerous foes.
2.: They all are male (*surprise, surprise* ), but able to procreate. (Don't ask, how. Because that's one of the mysteries, Jamie is going to learn about )
3.: Their most feared weapon is the peeron spray which not only smells terrible but also causes anyone who swallows it to transform into a new peeron.
Well... I'm crazy. I know.
