For your Role Play Gaming (RPG), we at the Swashbuckling Press suggest "DragonRaid (TM)," the Christian Role Playing Game by Adventures for Christ.

You are a LightRaider, a member of the TwiceBorn, who is sent by the Overlord of Many Names into the Dragon Lands, armed with Middle Age style Weapons and Armour, and with the Word of the Overlord (called WordRunes) to defeat the forces of evil and to rescue the Once Born (Dragon Slaves) from the clutches of evil beasts!

Inspired by C.S. Lewis' "The Chronicles of Narnia",  and having a strong feel toward the "Lord of the Rings" series, "DragonRaid (TM)," a Role Playing Adventure, is sure to bring excitement and adventure into anyone's life.

Chronicles of Narnia: The world created by the Christian author C.S. Lewis is presented here.

Lord of the Rings: The world created by J.R.R. Tolkien, a writer who was inspired by C.S. Lewis to write his fantasy; and, from what I hear, Lewis was brought to Christianity by Tolkien himself! Tolkien also inspired the game-makers at Dungeons and Dragons by his fantasy-style writings.

READ WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT DONAREE:

"Nicely done. I really enjoyed the history in the introduction and the duel is well written. Best of luck with the novel!" ~ Author David Lee Summers, author of five books: Vampires of the Scarlet Order, The Solar Sea, and the "Old Star" science fiction series: The Pirates of Sufiro, Children of the Old Stars, and Heirs of the New Earth. www.davidleesummers.com

"Very exciting read! Felt like I was there witnessing the action!" ~ Candle Artist Jfay,

"I really enjoyed the humour and really laughed, not at Monsieur de la Donaree but with Monsieur de la Donaree! I dont know if you wrote it in this spirit but if you had a bit of Molière in you, I would not be surprised! He knew how to study people and would turn situations into a comic play! I laughed out loud, this is a gem! Not only de la Donaree is a fine sword, he has also a fine nose when it comes to pinpoint personalities, I'm talking about the Inkeeper and his situation with the wife here!! The second part is indeed in pure swashbuckling spirit, in rhythm and enthusiasm! And the end is a cliff-hanger! The beginning is "cocasse" (funny) as they might have said then in Gascony, and witty! Indeed Alexandre Dumas had a sense of humour too and satirically created at least one of his character ( in another book) to a character made up by Molière in one of his comic play. And Molière also took his inspiration from Dumas' s Musketeers and "The Man in the Iron Mask." I liked it! I had fun while reading this chapter about Monsieur de la Donaree, as while following the spirit of the Musketeers you gave a contemporary touch to the text!" ~ Artist Nicole Marques,

"Hurrah, Ted! I gleefully await the next installment! LOVE the romantic stuff! Bring it on! There are few things in this world I like better than a hot Viscount. Keep going, Ted! Bravo! Keep writing! I can't wait to read more! But it is par for the course as I am also a writer. Keep in touch!" ~ Author Genella de Grey, author of "Remember Me."

"Wow - What a wonderful beginning. As a whole, you have a unique way of writing & you captivated me by a few sentences peaking my interest to continue. For instance: ...hazed by the early morning mist...I love it! I look forward to reading the next chapter. You've gained my interest. That was impresive & informative. You've still got the hook in & I'm dangling to hear more. Thanks for the sneak peak." ~ Aspiring Author R.F.Taylor: Rianna

"Well done. Chapter One entices the reader craving more. I will look for The Adventures of Monsieur de La Donaree the Musketeer on the web. Keep up the excellent writing..." ~
