Welcome to Arvia

The monsters are large
The pay is small
A sharp wit gets you further than a sharp blade
(but it’s a good idea to have both)

Welcome to Arvia! It’s a beautiful, dangerous world, overflowing with lush colorful flora, exotic creatures, and giant mythic monsters. Lots of giant monsters. You’ll see it through the eyes of human and non-human characters alike: characters who tend to lack special skills, magic swords, or mystic artifacts. Denizens of Arvia, constantly finding themselves over their heads, have to get very creative just to survive. But at the heart of every story: relationships. Sometimes friendships, sometimes romances, always forged in the most difficult of circumstances.

Tales of Arvia continues with a third novel! A slew of new challenges awaits our harpy-human duo in Arvia: Heart of the Sky, as seemingly natural tremors release strange creatures from the abyss onto an unsuspecting surface world. This new adventure released on May 12, 2023.
