Vol 1 – A Demon in the Desert
The Wastelands mining town of Greenreach Bluffs is deteriorating: with each passing day its inhabitants grow more fearful and paranoid, plagued by…something. They suffer nightmares and hallucinations, there are murders at the mine; the community is on the brink of madness and ruin and, as events escalate, realization dawns: the town has a demon problem. Two attempts at hunting it down fail, Greenreach Bluffs is at breaking point…and then Grimluk the Orc strides in out of the Wastes to answer their call for salvation.
Vol 2 – Demon Haunted
For the past month, Grimluk has traveled with his newly adopted sister, Gwen Quinn. Grimluk hopes to find the cause and cure for the prophetic spirit trapped in Gwen. The journey isn’t without its perils though. Near dark one evening, an angry and monstrous apparition attacks them, nearly crushing Grimluk under its enormous spiritual weight. It demands one thing; to be taken home.
The thing leads them to a town called Perfection. A man known as the Hanging Judge runs the town, holding tight to law and order. Almost immediately, Grimluk is arrested, charged with kidnapping and murder. The Judge takes Gwen and imprisons Grimluk. Trapped and separated, the pair learn all too quickly that something else haunts the town besides a ghost. And the only escape might be at the end of a rope.
Vol 3 – The Demons Within – Coming October 2018
A small, isolated farming town has a demon problem and though it’s a cold winter, Grimluk aims to correct that problem. After arriving in the town, he witnesses a meteorite land somewhere nearby. While he hunts the town’s demon, something emerges from the fallen rock. Something oozing and hungry and alien to the world of Arkod.
Once the demon’s dead, Grimluk moves on, unaware of what the meteorite brought with it. He spends some time in Downingville, enjoying the company of an orc woman named Emerald but that enjoyment is soon interrupted by something Grimluk has never seen before. Something huge and grotesque. Something that calls out his name in a demon’s voice.
As he fights to protect the town’s citizens, the thing vanishes and in its place comes someone who should be dead. Now Grimluk is faced with the prospect that this demonic creature could be anyone around him. He learns all too quickly that it’ll take more than a quick gun to win this fight.
