Wulfric the Wanderer

Portal of Destiny - Book I of the Wulfric the Wanderer Series

A Sword & Sorcery series of short fiction with books ranging in size from short stories to novellas: Wulfric the Wanderer is a warrior trapped in different time periods, encountering dark magic, time paradoxes, legendary monsters, and historical figures from Korovia's past.

Charles Moffat created "Wulfric the Wanderer" in July 2007 as a Sword and Sorcery alternative to his heroic fantasy character Wrathgar. While both characters are barbarians from the Baarstammderstark tribe in the Snowfell Mountains, the style of storytelling between the two characters and their plots differed dramatically. The biggest difference being that Wulfric is a time traveler who bounces between different time periods of Korovia in order to either find his way back to his own time, or to try and find his beloved Tahira.

The first two stories were published out of order chronologically, but starting in 2020 Moffat has been making a concerted effort to publish more Wulfric stories in the correct order. Starting with "Portal of Destiny" he begins with an origin story to tell how Wulfric became a time traveler in the first place.

The Wulfric the Wanderer series follows in the tradition of Sword and Sorcery short stories similar to Conan the Barbarian, and Moffat's work in the genre is influenced by Robert E. Howard, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Robert Jordan, Andrew J. Offutt, Edgar Rice Burroughs and others.

The priest of the tribe doesn't trust him and is growing suspicious. Worse, the tribe is being splintered between those who worship the tribe's horse god and a cult within their ranks of those who worship a she-bear goddess.

    When the tribe finds megalithic carvings of bears in the side of a mountain the two sides begin to bicker about whether to destroy the carvings. Wulfric decides to investigate the nearby caves and the cave art within, finding more caverns that delve deeper into the mountain. What he doesn't know is that the bear carvings outside are magical wards that prevent a demonic entity inside the mountain from escaping. If the carvings are destroyed the entity will be freed and it will be able to feed once more...

    The Flintrako tribe and the time traveling Wulfric the Wanderer have arrived at the Krest river, the site of the legendary final battle of the Demon War ten years earlier. Each year on the winter solstice the tribes reunite to share gifts and reestablish their bonds of friend, but Wulfric's chieftain, Ko Margus, is worried that war on the horizon. With a horde of Black Feather orcs ravaging the north and laying claim to the best hunting territories, the leader of the Wolfkin tribe is pushing for war.

    Just as the Wolfkin tribe arrives Wulfric spots a man walking amongst them who doesn't belong in the Stone Age, a man wearing tailored fur clothing with hemlines, thread holding it together, and clasps - none of which have been invented yet. Realizing that there is another time traveler at Krest for this historic event, the warrior from the Snowfells decides to act... and learns of a plot to alter history and change the outcome of what is to come.

    Fighting ice demons and water demons wouldn't be so bad, but Wulfric finds himself pitted against a dangerous foe capable of controlling time itself, capable of changing history - and one of the few people who has the power to return him to his own time.
