Welcome readers! I’m excited to finally be posting my web serial up here! I hope you enjoy reading this story as much as I have coming up with it. The Iron Teeth web serial is an online story I will be updating every Sunday and Wednesday afternoon. Each update will be between 3000 and 4000 words. Bonus chapters will be released when the goal for comments, follows, and votes are met. So if you want more make sure you check out the progress bar in the top right of the page.
The Iron teeth is a dark fantasy story about living in a alternate fantasy world where the natural fauna and flora are much more dangerous. As a result of this civilization outside of the ancestral human Homelands is much harder to maintain and the world remains largely unexplored. The story focuses on the goblin Blacknail and his life in the Iron Teeth mountains. After a raid on a caravan Blacknail is taken in by a band of violent bandits to be their servant. Tragic events however will lead him and the world down a far different path.
The story focuses on world building so expect mystery, suspense, tragedy, violence, and a lot of deep lore. It also contains a coherent old school magic that is knowledge based and has risks, unlike the psychic power like magic you see in a lot of stories these days. I was inspired to write this by other web serials especially the Worm web serial by Wildbow.
Please take the time to follow and share this serial on social media if you like. Its simple and easy to do but it’s a big help. Thank you.
Below is the story synopsis, which you can also find on the About page.
These are the Iron Teeth. This is the north proper. The very knife edge of civilization. Here among the stark mountains and endless forests there are undiscovered treasures amongst countless unmarked graves. Here monsters stalk the night and outlaws gather. It is the land of the desperate and the foolish. A land of singular wonders and crushing horror.
Here dwells Myagnoir the Doom of Coroulis, the Great Drake, the City Killer, the Greatest Enemy of Man. His coming sealed the north’s decline that the wars of the south begun and shattered all hopes of safety from those wars’ depredations. Amongst the icy ruins of the once great Coroulis he rules unchallenged.
Here the Forest People wait and plot their revenge on the kingdoms of men. Those that drove them from their ancestral homes, but whose once unmatched power now wanes. Amongst all this simple people struggle to survive and carve out new lives for themselves far from the greed and wrath of kings.
Now arrives a newcomer, a captive, a slave, a goblin, a spark onto tinder. The North shall burn, and only time will tell what rises from the ashes.
