 Defy death, as did Tahiko. Seize the power of your blood, as did the Mother.

Rise, as does the Trickster

Long, long ago, a boy named Hokkaido ran away. Away from his lord father, away from his life and home, and away from all he had ever known, never to return. 

Though that name is long lost to the wear of time, his story still perseveres. A tale of two brothers, and an old race of shape-shifters. Of war, death, and trial. Of peace, life, and learning. Of a place where Gods walk among men, and swirling sand clashes against unforgiving iron. 

The lord's son and his stalwart companion Haiken arrive in Caelan with high hopes, but the Land of the Sun is quick to show its true nature - unforgiving, hostile, and wracked by a conflict older than time itself. What was once a rebellious flight soon turns into a desperate search for safety, and the pair find themselves struggling both to survive and to protect the very world beneath their feet from the flailing of the Gods.

Influenced by classic epic fantasy but set firmly upon genre-bending, the Trickster Lord is a first glance into the woven, ever-growing universe of The Twines. Power is a fleeting commodity here, and the balance between good and evil is more volatile than ever before.

Can even the greatest obstacles be overcome, and the tallest mountains climbed?

Can, against all odds, the spirit of the Trickster rise?
