Ever feel like you were out of place? You know, those days where everything you do seems out of place and you don’t know your way around the world. Everything seems a little alien and unworldly, with everyone knowing exactly what to do. That feeling like you are a sorcerer from a mythical world and somehow found yourself in modern times with no way of getting back. Then you should probably check out Riftworld Chronicles.
A struggling journalist teams up with a dimension-traveling wizard who is stuck in our world without his magic powers. She helps him on his quest to return home in exchange for the rights to his story. When a rift between the realms opens up and fantastical foes invade, they are forced to solve the mystery of what binds their worlds, and their fates, together.
Spells will explode, swords will be swung, and you know with the main two characters being single that a little romance will be in the air. Riftworld Chronicles looks to bring the two worlds of fantasy and comedy together into one story for you to enjoy. Tune back into Geek & Sundry next week on Thursday (March 3rd) for the full adventure on the website.
