A DWARF WITH NO NAME
Cursed by a demonic axe and fueled with an unquenchable bloodlust, the Nameless Dwarf slaughters his own people in their thousands.
The survivors flee to the nightmare realms beyond the mountains, where no one has ever set foot and lived to tell the tale.
Freed from the axe, and horrified by what he has done, the Nameless Dwarf pursues them across the known world. Convinced there can be no atonement, he is prepared to sacrifice everything to save the last of his race from extinction.
The trail leads to the brigand town of Malfen, on the fringes of civilization. But no one passes though without paying a toll to an underground boss known as the Ant-Man. It is a toll that has already cost many their lives.
Publisher's Note: A Dwarf With No Name was previously published as The Ant-Man of Malfen

2. Geas of the Black Axe
"A dwarf with no name is a dwarf most shamed."
As the lands above the ravine city of Arx Gravis face their gravest peril, the last desperate hope of Creation lies in a dwarf with a grisly past:
The Nameless Dwarf - a pariah, untouchable, the most cursed of dwarven kind.
But in a world plagued by deception, where no action is free from risk, the road to salvation is shadowed with portents of blood.
