"SideQuest" is the humorous fantasy series that takes a peek behind the scenes and introduces us to the flip side of the heroic adventures. Written by David Skaufjord and illustrated by Trine Lise Normann.
The storyline: In her adult years, Vigdus has quit her secure government job to pursue a career as an adventurer. As companions, she has acquired a pacifist bard, an asthmatic warrior, and an alcoholic alchemist, all of whom realize that the life of an adventurer seems much easier in literature.
When a new self-promotion trend called "social mediating" suddenly becomes a hype in their small town, the group sees an opportunity to achieve celebrity status without having to carry out actual heroic deeds. But a shadow loom behind the scenes, waiting to take over as the entire town is paralyzed by the pursuit of status...
