10-year-old Spark is a “brunt,” a human kid trapped in Dungeonworld, the spooky underground kingdom where monsters rule and danger lurks around every corner. It’s a tough life for a kid! But Spark is determined not to let the ogres, goblins, and trolls who run the place get him down. Whether he’s stoking the forge in a blacksmith’s shop, playing drums in the Army Marching Band, or rustling winged boars on the open prairie, Spark relies on his wild, reckless spirit to always liven things up a bit. After all, you can have fun anywhere...even in a place with no sunlight!


Come join the fun in Dungeonworld! Books 1-5 are available now...with more coming soon!
