'The Magician's Daughter' and her 'Wizarding Ways' Released by Skirmisher!

Michael O. Varhola

Skirmisher Publishing is pleased to announce the release of “The Magician’s Daughter” at DriveThruRPGRPGNow, and DriveThruFiction! It is available by itself for 99¢ or as part of a 50% off Wizarding Ways Bundle that contains six system-free publications. 

This lighthearted and humorous fantasy short story describes what happens when a young woman takes over her deceased father’s business as a consulting magician and how she deals with troublesome clients, unreliable retainers, and devious rivals. It is very similar in tone to the Arabian Nights, which was very popular during the era when it was written, and includes appearances by numerous nonhuman creatures, including giants, gnomes, hippogriffs, ghosts, and hobgoblins.

“The Magician’s Daughter” was written by prolific and popular American author Frank R. Stockton and illustrated by artist E.B. Bensell and was originally published in 1880. 

Skirmisher's special 50% off Wizarding Ways bundle contains six system-free titles that be enjoyed either by themselves or in conjunction with any fantasy RPGs! They include two bestselling "100 Oddities" volumes, two setting sourcebooks with multiple wizardly places in each, a guide to scholarly places that include alchemy labs and wizards' towers, and an amusing short story about a magician's daughter.
