WARBAND is about a group of elves who live in a land where winter never ends. To thrive in the frozen wastes, they resort to raiding the human settlements to the southwest for resources. This story is about a particular group of raiders, a warband called “Berserker,” and the hardships they face on their raids together.
In Throne, there was war between the five races, a war ultimately won by the Dragons– when they dropped their savage sorcery bombs on the Elves. The elf homeland was turned into a poisoned wasteland, and the Elves themselves were warped by magic, changing the fiber of their being. They found themselves inextricably dependent on environment, and forced to scatter across the globe. The Sea Elves went into hiding in the sea, the Sand Elves vanished into the desert, the Snow Elves disappeared into the frozen north, and the Forest Elves haunted the forests of the land. The story of WARBAND follows the Berserkers as they’re raiding and adventuring to bring rare resources home to their people. They deal with some really gray morality as they’re forced to make hard choices for the well-being of their kinsmen.
WARBAND is largely inspired by TV shows like Vikings, old comics like Poison Elves, and every Dungeons and Dragons game I’ve ever played in my life. D&D is the driving inspiration, and while this is a comic book I feel like I could probably write this up into a 3.5 campaign. It’s heavy adventure, excitement and romance, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I’m enjoying creating it. If you really enjoy it, please do check out my Patreon and support the comic!
