Writing Distracted Troll War setting logo image with dark forest and sunlight shining through an opening.

An original epic fantasy setting inspired by the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, these stories take place during the Second Civilization on Annerth–a place where monsters are the monsters.

The continent of Liraehne (Lee-rahn-ee) is made up seven divided nations populated by five lineages of people. Since the fall the Commonwealth, there has been no leader strong enough to reunite the nations, and all is not well. A great evil haunts the land in the form of a deranged necromantic dark lord known as Krypt. An ancient elfin prophecy sows distrust and suspicion with foretellings of a devastating civil war. Encounters with vicious creatures from ancient ruins are beginning to disrupt trade and agriculture. And now hordes of hungry trolls have begun to swarm across the Frontier, again. Perfect killing machines, trolls cannot be reasoned with and they cannot be negotiated with–they simply kill, eat, and make baby trolls; a mass of muscle, claw, and tooth that consumes and migrates.

The last Troll War consumed three quarters of the population, and destroyed the First Civilization, but nothing may survive the next.

Tread carefully, for this is a desperate and dangerous place.
