Jacques was just a normal bard in his father's tavern, performing for a regular audience every weekend. There was not much going with his life... until a certain someone came in the tavern one fateful night. Intrigued by this mysterious figure, he approached him and befriended him - before realizing that the mystery guy was actually a troll. And it wasn't just any troll... it was Blinkous Galadrigal himself.
Discovering the world of trolls through this destined moment, Jacques finds out that he has abilities he's not touched on before. Blinkous, in a gesture of friendship, offers to help him discover more...
But whatever lies beyond the unknown would not be so easily found, nor would it be pretty.
