Before we start, I want to thank you for giving Reiss of the Eternal a try. I've been working on this for a while, and it's been a long and arduous journey. I wanted to give up more than once, but now it's out, and this is only the very beginning, hope you can find enjoyment in what I wrote, and if you do, then leave a comment since I feed on validation from strangers. Thank you.
On a second note, it's also been made apparent to me that I have a problem with punctuation, I'm terribly sorry and while I don't want to use it as an excuse, this is due to me not being a native speaker, not having any kind of studies on the language and mostly being self-taught. I do heavily proofread my work several times over but things just keep popping out; I hope that with time these things will be corrected, but until then I hope you can understand.
If you find an error, feel free to point it out and I will correct it. Future chapters will be even more harshly proofread.
Also, I want to thank Reddit user kllrnooooova for taking the time of his day to make corrections on the prologue.
with that out of the way I hope you have a good time!
On the northernmost part of the continent, in the humanist kingdom of Ostara’s most faraway region, on a small, quaint fishing town lives Edwin Raanan the youngest son of Hillside's Guardian, a retired adventurer with double marital problems.
He is the weakest and most untalented of his siblings, whatever he can do, his older " grumpier" half-brother and "Unique" half-sister can surely do better.
He may have been chosen to succeed the village head one day, but that was chosen before he had even been born, but Ran wishes to go against his predestined path, to brave the wide and dangerous world and become a legendary adventurer, to carve his name in history and travel all around the world. But that will prove difficult for a seven-year-old weak child whose sword skills are mediocre at best.
Now with the recent arrival of a mage in town Ran has been given an opportunity, a chance that will change his life forever as outside forces play in the background.
He will give it his all to travel the path of magic while learning about the people in his life.
Sadly, things hardly go the way we want them to.
