Beast is 2018 Parsec Awards Finalist!

We’re happy to announce that The Beast of the Western Wilds is a finalist in this year’s Parsec Awards.

It’s definitely the longest entry in the ‘short form’ category though, as the story is 5 hours long.

A big thanks to the judges for this nomination!

2018 Parsec Awards nomination for The Beast of the Western Wilds

Are you curious about The Beast of the Western Wilds? It is a prequel to our most popular story Witch Hunter with a bit of a horror vibe to it.

Before the epic events in this gothic fantasy story, Witch Hunter Master Ludlov of Sevenpeaks sets out to investigate horrible and mysterious murders and dissapearings in Schnertwald. It appears there are some werewolf activities going on there. Rudolf, a guard with local ties to the village helps him to sort out the mystery. But they soon find out that nothing is as it seems…

You can actually listen to this 5 hour long dark fantasy story for free on YouTube or purchase it on Bandcamp.
