Tooj Tales: Kai and the Protectors of Tooj


I’m Brian Powell, co-author of the Tooj Tales. This middle-grade fantasy series is set in a world that Jean Curci has spent twenty years building and features maps and artwork by a truly amazing group of artists.

I met Jean about four years ago in Myanmar, which is the inspiration for the land of Tooj. After role-playing a D&D character in his world for three years, I finally put a story on paper and now it’s ready to print!

The Kickstarter to launch the book was funded in 20 hours, so now we are raising funds to translate and publish the book in Myanmar as well as English. You can check it out at:

If you would like to learn more about this exciting new fantasy world, please visit us at or on Facebook at ToojTales.

I hope you enjoy exploring Tooj as much as I have!
