Volume 1 Kickstarter reward spotlight: Secret Order of Monster Hunters!

Like Knights of Ceannis, but more exclusive — there’s only 30 available. Good news is, we’re now exactly halfway through the Kickstarter and there are still more than half of these available. Get ’em while they’re hot.

Your paperback book will include everyone’s favorite bonus feature: a character sketch with an autograph. While the books are at the printer’s, I’ll draw and send you some digital art too. Plus all those sweet earlier rewards.


Sven: Wait a minute . . . Violet, is she serious? Does she have the authority? And what crime am I supposed to have witnessed?

Del: Smuggling. A whole series of smuggling incidents. Illegal growth potions, mostly. Sometimes pills. Occasionally a powder. Many of them banned in Ceannis because they don’t work as advertised.

Others banned because they work all too well.

Sven: I did no such thing! Nobody’s going to believe that!

Thorn (thinking): Yeah, that tracks perfectly with what we know from the tentacle incident.

Violet (thinking): Can’t let him get whisked off to secret prison, but he definitely did it.

You know what they say innocent until proven guilt… yeah he’s guilty.

I will point out that the Minister’s response is after Delphinium tried to outright arrest him. You don’t have to be guilty of something to conclude that the crime you ‘witnessed’ is what you’re being accused of in this case.
That said, he does seem like the most likely suspect: enough connections to find people willing to sell him the potions, while being gullible enough that he didn’t think to do some research on WHY they were illegal to sell. Oh, and the two incidents that we know of are at the embassy where he works, and then here while he’s attending a play. This is circumstantial evidence though, so I suspect that Delphinium and co have something that more solidly ties him to the smuggling.
