The misadventures of a guy from Earth, stuck in a fantasy world
The tag line sums it up pretty well. The protagonist is a geeky guy from modern-day Earth who, for unknown reasons, suddenly found himself in a fantasy world one day, and subsequently discovered that he has the apparently-unique power to disrupt magic by touch, which he calls "the Twist."
The problem is, being from a modern-day setting, he has no useful skills in a pre-industrial society; just the Twist, which has little in the way of legitimate uses, particularly in a kingdom that's at peace. So he's forced down the path of marketing his ability as a high-priced mercenary thief, stealing stuff that's protected by magic for clients willing to pay... and then investing the money he makes from it into initiatives to try to develop technology in the kingdom and get the Industrial Revolution started.
Then one day, the latest client turns out to be working for a Great Dragon, and everything goes off the rails...
Apparently, no one speaks English properly, not even the British
Which of the many accents in Britain are you referring to? We have many and they delineate a lot about where people come from and what social class they're in. We're almost as bad as the Italians that way…
I can't say I like both, but I don't really dislike emacs. My only problem with it is that I use it so very, very rarely that I don't remember how to do anything, including quitting. I'm sure that if I used it often enough to be familiar with it, I'd like it, but why should I learn yet another editor?
