Who We Are
Hello! We’re a small, independent press publishing immersive, high fantasy novels and duet resources and adventures for 5th edition gaming.
Adventures and advice for creating a whole world, just for two. Specializing in 5e-compatible duet play.
High fantasy novels, novellas, short stories, and serials in the Storyverse of Verdigris. If you enjoy lyrical tales of action and adventure, dragons, werewolves, fae, wily foxes, and more, then grab your enchanted amulet, flaming longsword, poisoned dagger, or other mystical accessory of choice, and let’s start our journey together!
Our authors are Beth Ball and Jonathan Ball.
Beth Ball is a weaver of words and worlds spinning stories of druidic magic and the power of nature that span the epic fantasy realms of Azuria and Eldura. If you enjoy lyrical tales of action and adventure, dragons, werewolves, fae, wily foxes, and more, then grab your enchanted amulet, flaming longsword, poisoned dagger, or other mystical accessory of choice, and let’s start our journey together!
When she’s not writing fantasy fiction, Beth is a tabletop RPG designer and a literary scholar. Her academic work focuses on contemporary novels that encourage readers to find agency and empowerment in their approach to nature and their impact on the natural world, and her TTRPG adventures incorporate lots of druids.
In addition to her writing work, Beth also has experience as an editor on several scholarly texts including revising her university’s introductory literature textbook.
Jonathan is an educational coach for first-year teachers and an education consultant. He’s passionate about empowering teachers so they can, in turn, empower their students.
When he’s not learning more about education best practices, you can usually find him playing D&D with Beth or creating D&D content, either for their patrons, DMsGuild, or their home game. Between all of these things, he makes sure to work in time for entertaining their two silly labradors and for strength training.

Duet Campaign Book
Our other major project is a full-length duet campaign book that we’re working towards with our Patrons for DnD Duet. The 5e campaign will be set in our homebrew world of Azuria—the same setting as our novels!
