The Captain: A Battle Brothers Novel Arrives in Paperback and Digital

The second Battle Brothers novel, The Captain, is available now.

The game’s lead writer Casey Hollingshead wrote the novel, which continues the story of former Witch Hunter Richter von Dagentear.

Battle Brothers is a dark fantasy turn-based tactical RPG. Overhype Studios released the game in 2017 and it has continued to enjoy significant support. The most recent expansion, “Of Flesh and Faith,” released in 2022.

The Amazon description states:

‘You wish to talk rumors? Where would I even begin? I have heard of direwolves, lindwurms, dragons, nachzehrers, webknechts, and a wiederganger at the hip of a black clad cultist. Hells, I once received a tale that the trees themselves came alive and skewered men dead with branches shaped like spears! Richter, please, the laity love to talk about all the ghouls and ghosts these woods hold, but until you see it with your own eyes…’

“Now captain of a struggling mercenary company, Richter von Dagentear takes on a dangerous brigand known as Kantorek, ‘the King of Dragons.’ But bandits and thieves are not all that roam the forests. With a witch hunter’s hat atop his head and a sellsword’s blade at his hip, Richter must recruit and equip a ragtag group of fighters to not only complete contracts, but survive what evils lurk beyond the trees.

“Battle Brothers is set in a gritty, low fantasy medieval world with a focus on the common man. Here, everyday people are not concerned with the happenings of history and their belief in the future is about as far flung as tomorrow’s sunrise. It is about getting you and yours fed and making it to the next day. With money being scarce and the wilds full of danger, many turn to mercenaries, witch hunters, beast slayers, and more. These lowly vocations fulfill a need: to take all the world’s violence and – hopefully – point it somewhere useful.

The Captain: A Battle Brothers Novel may be found in paperback and Kindle format here.

Battle Brothers can be found on Steam and on GOG.
