About the Author

I’m an electrical engineer / integrated circuit designer, tired of writing technical specifications. I’m also a game master for tabletop roleplaying games. I ran an adventure to introduce my children to the game, and it was so much fun I said “This would make a great book.” I took advantage of NaNoWriMo to get that project started, and 5 years later I’m releasing book 2 of the series, under the pen name R. A. Klepsis.

About the Book

What do you get for the prince who has everything?

This question is on the mind of Rizo Malkin after he and Cordela Shent are invited to the wedding of their friend Prince Prothar. Rizo also wonders what he is going to do with himself now that he’s learned all the magic he needs. But his chief concern is unlocking the secrets of the ruby amulet he “found” on his last venture.

Cordela has questions of her own, such as why she, the savior of the world, is stuck teaching hieroglyphics class. When Rizo requests her help to investigate his amulet, she eagerly joins him. Besides, she couldn’t very well let him get into trouble by himself.

During the resulting quest, Cordela, Rizo and their friends learn how perilous it can be to get exactly what they want. It might even cost them their friendships.

Revisit Cordela’s world, first introduced in Water Against Chaos. Experience all the excitement, dangers, surprises and shenanigans of her latest adventure, based on events of an actual tabletop fantasy roleplaying campaign. Spoiler alert: there may be a dragon involved.
