Reviews for Culpug the Cavelord's Primal Tales

Raptors were always some of my favorite dinosaurs, and having a corrupt noble feeding his enemies to them was awesome.

i don't think i could have resisted, it sounds too cool to pass up, even if i had to die, but to live that for all eternity. Culpug is a stronger man than i ever will be.

i liked this alot, you really showed Ulk's skill.

i noticed it says complete at the top.

when and if you mention Kroger in passing base whatever is said about the fight with Santa, i've changed him to the Lord of Winter and changed his clothes to bloodstained rags that barely cover his immense bulk.

i don't really understand, where did the demon's come from?

this is an interesting idea.

Another interesting chapter. Nice to see that once again Culpug uses more than just brawn to defeat his foes. I also like that he's powerful, but not invincible; he has to rely on his determination and wits to survive a lot of these encounters. Maybe I'm just so tired of reading fantasy wherein heroes win by falling back on previously-undiscovered deus ex machina powers, or they win so easily that the combat was almost completely unnecessary. You just plain write action and suspense better than most.

Ah, very interesting! I loved the bit near the end where Urvan asks if it was actually a man or a God. Culpug's answer says a lot about him. A nice read, albeit rather brief. Reminded me a little of The 13th Warrior.

Awesome story! Stregos is one of my favorite characters of yours so far! I actually find him cooler than Culpug.

Ha ha, wow! That was very interesting; the kind of primordial barbarian heroism you don't see often on a site like this! Very interesting. I like how Culpug is pure warrior, but takes no pride in killing. Interesting contrast there from the typical barbarian hero. Also, he's a loving family man; another big difference from your usual fantasy hero. Nice work.

The fight scenes were thrilling! The "choreography" made sense, and I could practically see the battles unfolding in front of me. Cool stuff, man. I did see an awkward line: "Before driving that blade into Culpug’s leg, he grabbed the Cavelord’s throat with both hands." So he didn't drive the blade into Culpug's leg? Or did he actually stab him and THEN get to throttling our hero? Anyway, that was the only problem I had in the entire chapter, so congrats, and I'll be reading more.

Hey Mike, how come you are re-posting your old stories in a shorter format? As I understand, these stories have already seen print before? Is this similar with your latest project of Captain Dice? Nice work...

Nice to see Culpug back, though a comment on the second chapter. It opens with an older Culpug reciting his stories to his son. The other chapters all start with him in the middle of the action. Might want to just edit that a bit for consistency.
