Continuation: meta-reflexive

Our hero spends a whole bunch of time with these various pursuits (before any real plot advance is made):

  • Fighting crap wizards, and winning because of untutored and uncontrollable magic that is latent in his (divine/demonic) nature
  • Fighting orcs or goblins
  • Getting covered in shit
  • Walking a lot
  • Coming across things that need about six paragraphs of cod-poetic description, involving elven ruins, mountains and/or mysterious shrubbery

A lot of bollocks really.

Something will get said or done that may or may not have a point that is revealed later on. Maybe someone whispers his real name as he pulls his sword out of them, but he can't hear it? Something like that.

Book two.
