[Participant in the Royal Road Writathon]

The Wild West, but if the entire wilderness was everything it was ever hyped up to be in Native American legends. From Skinwalkers to Bakwas to Urayuli, even the Wendigo is real. People fight for their lives against these creatures just as often as they do against each other. A substance called Ether and things known as Sigils gives the men and women a fighting chance against the beings that dwell west.The most powerful weapons that people can wield to defend themselves are also the most dangerous. When living things die that possess Ether, sometimes their leftover desires will form items identical to some of their body parts in life, like hands or eyes, with powers similar to the fallen in life but twisted beyond recognition. These items, known as artifacts, are the folly of many survivors. They eat and devour from those who hold them.The only form of government is a loose but still held-together coalition of people called Hunters, controlled mostly from the top down by the powerful. Many young men and women dream of becoming some of these legendary figures despite their near 100% fatality rate while in service. The name of the game is survival. Survival of the mind, the body, and most importantly, the soul. All must Tread Lightly if they wish not to become another man's artifact, a corpse in an unmarked grave, a demon's lunch, or the puppet of an artifact that was given too much to eat.Overconfidence and bravado are the hands of a fool, but sometimes fearlessness is needed when all others cower before the Wilds.

And fear is something that Wyatt Graves does not possess.

Updates every day, sometimes twice a day if I have extra time to write. 3000-word chapters on average.

Quite a bit of gore, action, messed-up powers, character death, mystery, and the occasional cosmic horror. Just a warning.

Also, in case any are curious, most creatures, monsters, demons, and the like are based on native American and just American folklore/mythology in general.
