Tales of Passion and... Tusks.

Thanks to @PettyArtist for this art piece!

By now, critters have not disappointed in their own renditions of the cover art and tales available for purchase at Chastity’s Nook. Regardless, to aid in further delectable debauchery, we’ve listed the known titles, cover descriptions, and synopses up through episode 11 of season 2. (But seriously, we’re expecting at LEAST three solid minutes of Tusk Love covers in the art scroll this week, and several novels worth of quality... yeah.)

  • The Rosed Embrace by Samuels. Very tasteful.
  • The Farthing’s Embrace. Written under Samuels’ psuedonym, an earlier work that he was not as proud of.
  • Unnamed Title in the YA Section. The cover features a portion of a moonlight painting of a brawny-looking man who is dipping a fainting-looking woman in a delicate dress, glistening across the moonlight, slightly pulled open at the chest.
  • Zemnian Nights. Very popular.
  • Enchanting Tryst. For those with a more fantastical perspective.
  • Scent of the Sea. For the traveler who enjoys perusal. From outer-Empire, for folks of varying interest.
  • Tusk Love. More saucy. The union of a half-orc named Oskar and the daughter of a traveling merchant as they meet on the Amber Road up near Druvenlode. There’s a saucy union between the two, but they can’t, because what would the parents think? “And then, Oskar falls in love with her, and he carries her across a field, and they love each other so much! It’s the most beautiful story, Beau!”
  • Guard of My Heart by “Seven Corbo.” A more gentle, classic love story of honor versus what the heart wants. A Crownsguard crest decorates the front cover.
  • Shallow Breaths. A bit more body. SMUTTY, like an Anne Rice fairy tale book.
  • Courting of the Crick. Covered in deer-skin leather. Banned 15 years ago in the Dwendalian Empire.
    • A Crick assassin snuck past the drawn lines to complete her mission against Dwendalian General Theo, but failed and was captured in her attempted escape. During the interrogation, her helmet is removed to reveal blue-purple skin, gray-white hair, and pointed ears of elvish lineage; a dark elf. The armor is described as chitinous, metal but organic in its design.
    • It is learned that the term Crick, short for cricket, is a derogatory term for individuals who come from the Crinn Empire of Xhorhas of Wildemount. When the Crinn armies charge, the holes and tubes in their armor sound like a flock of crickets rushing into battle, an intimidation tactic of high-pitched screaming cricket chirp that rushes in.
    • The story speaks of the dueling wits between the general and the assassin, finding common ground, getting murderous and angry at each other that eventually turns into a torid love affair in an Antony-Cleopatra way.
    • Very dry. It’s an older book that doesn’t match the imaginatory flair of other perused smut. Assuming there is any truth to the tale, gives insight into the relationship between the Dwendalian and Xhorhasian folk.
    • A lot of information about Xhorhasian society is unknown or uncatalogued. Most of the assassin’s perspective may lack accuracy due to the author’s limited perspective. Talks of a tortuous society, bloodshed and beasts, a terrible life of endless wastes of carnivorous and cannibalistic creatures. The Crick nation is described as a place of perpetual inner turmoil, constantly vying for the next position of power.
    • The assassin, falling into a relationship with General Theo, does so with the perspective of being saved, taken from a terrible place and brought into the good graces of this general and the comforting realm of the Dwendalian Empire. However, she is discovered, tried, and executed. The general initially grieves her loss, but understands that the relationship never could be. This was probably for the best. An unsatisfying conclusion.
  • The third chapter of Iva’s unnamed series. A saucy meeting between a strong farmhand who is attempting to work down the cost of a piece of equipment by the purveyor. Heavy handed innuendos, ham-fisted dialogue, and frustratingly slow progression toward a predictable conclusion. Much talk of “heft of equipment” and “guage of your pipe.” Inspired by family work history with farm machinery. Projected available for sale in the next few months.
  • A Tale of Two Titties. Suggested by Liam.
  • Bonder’s Gate. Also suggested by Liam.
