4: A fantastic D&D story for YA
The Tome of Syyx by author, Stavros Sarisstavros
About the author
Stavros Saristavros was born in Melbourne, Australia to migrant parents from Greece.
He holds a Bachelor of Science from the University of Monash, where he met the love of his life, Victoria. They were married in 2009 and are now the proud parents of three boys.
Stavros fell in love with fantasy at the age of fourteen after reading his first Forgotten Realms novel, Pools of Darkness.
His love for the fantasy genre, and its larger-than-life characters, inspired him to pursue martial arts, where he now holds a black belt in Gōjū-ryū karate and a blue belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu; he has
competed at an amateur level in both martial arts styles.
Stavros’ interests include D&D—where he has years of DM experience—soccer, and mixed martial arts.
Alongside the release of his first novel, The Tome of Syyx, Stavros has created a website where he shares D&D/RPG resources with fans, including free art, battle maps, and D&D tools.

Alair interjected before Zom could speak. “I appreciate the confidence, and I’m honoured to have Zom at my side. But two of us against an encampment? Chief … it’s a suicide mission.”
“You need stealth, not numbers. Too large a force would be spotted, and the plan would fail.”
“Too few, and we’ll be overwhelmed at the first alarm. Even if we got to Kurig, how would we get out afterward?”
“I know three warriors who are masters of stealth,” Zom offered. “The same three who fought with me against the Blood Moons: Osho, Ailuros, and Akke.”
Morkul nodded. “A panthor is nothing if not stealthy.”
Chief glanced between Zom and Alair, then finally settled on Zom. “Do you trust these three?”
Trust was a big word, and Zom hesitated. But there was something about each of his new friends that made him feel comfortable. Maybe it was the spirit of Sanctuary seeping into him, but he nodded
with certainty. “Yes, I trust them. We can do this.”
Alair gave him a strange look, clearly weighing the idea. “I agree,” she said finally. “We five could succeed.”
Chief nodded in satisfaction. “Send word to the Dagger Tribe and the Yellow Suns: we march for war.”
