Meet the Conflicted Lord and Madam War

What to do when Lord War dislikes you? You sweet-talk Madam War, but at your peril.

What to do when Lord War dislikes you? You sweet-talk Madam War, but at your peril.

Lord War and his wife are seldom home, usually seeing to business at the magically scheduled battles in the Clockpunk Wizard world.

In this Saturday’s August 31st release of Old Bony Blue Eyes, Wizard Kadmeion finds the always-bickering Lord and Madam War overseeing the settlers’ skirmishes on Raeburn, a new floating land just off the island-making volcanoes of the hub.

A dragon advised Kadmeion to get a weapon from War and use it to fight his way into Sir Death’s castle. But Lord War’s stubborn refusal leaves the wizard empty-handed and hurting from War’s brutal qualification tests. Even worse, Lord War is jealous of his wife’s friendly way with everyone and accuses Bright of being, well, elf-like with his charms.

But not all battles involve a fight, Madam War tells them. Disregarding her husband’s bad mood, she gives Bright a seemingly trivial magical gift. Even the smallest magical generosities need something in return. Kadmeion gives Madam War a seduction spell to win what she wants most. Her desire is nothing like what her husband Lord War expects.

See how a magically ~twisty~ war begins in Chapter 1 of Old Bony Blue Eyes.
