Viktor stared at his small, green frame, his long goblin ears, his pointed nose, his sharp teeth. He had led armies of thousands, centuries ago. He had conquered half a continent, ruled and slain men beyond count, monsters beyond belief.
Now he was a goblin trudging in the middle of nowhere, reduced into this vile creature; like a cockroach of the land, easily crushed between the earth and a leather boot. Goblins are weak, frail, and dumb. Their lives were worth no more than dirt: the height of their value sank below the earth, as deep as a chasm dug beneath the bodies of their betters.
Still, Viktor stood upright. His little men following before him had the same pride carved in their spine. Afterall, a kingdom does not make a man a king. It was a king who makes a kingdom.
What to expect:
– An entirely original world with its own goblin mythos and goblin cultures. I always find it a loss for authors to not give goblins / orcs and other species their own cultures that are far beyond the stereotype (the best one I’ve seen yet is GUL from Webtoon).
– An army-based strategy and tactics. There is no such thing as a one-man army. Expect some focus on army-building, formations, and tactics like you’re reading Yasuhisa Hara’s Kingdom.
– Complex characters. I’ve always hated how most novels treated their side characters (e.g. once a minor character joins the MC they are always supportive and loyal). Expect characters to have their own aims and motivations. Friends can become enemies, enemies can become friends. Actions have consequences. People die.
– This is not a Re:Monster remix. I absolutely abhorred Re:Monster. There will be no evolution system aside from natural progression.
– Poems and music. I was a poet first before I wrote novels, so you’ll be seeing some poems in the later chapters.
– Updates whenever because I got burned out
