The Tanking League (Intro)
The first story set in the Hummelverse. A couple of years after the original story was finished, a rewrite has begun and is currently in progress. Check out the sidebar to read the chapters! A sequel is also in the works, but I recommend only reading it if you read the original. Otherwise, you'll want to wait for the rewrite to be finished first. For updates, art, and announcements, check out my writing blog here.
OriginsIt used to be called "The Hummel Quest". The name comes from the original idea, which was a short story about a Sturmpanzer finding new friends on her quest to become a Hummel. This idea soon evolved and became more complex, and 90k words later, it had grown out of its original concept. The title doesn't really fit anymore, as the story's focus lies somewhere else now, so I decided to change it to "The Tanking League" in April 2018. At first, the story was "marketed" as a World of Tanks fanfic, but since that game has no lore or plot, I ended up coming up with my own; there are few similarities left.
PlotThe story follows the adventures and misadventures of a team who call themselves the the Tanking League. Starting out as a small group of outcasts, the team eventually grows as more and more members join during their journey. They meet other teams, find allies and enemies.
AdaptionsThe original version of the story spawned fanstories that take place in the same world. I also wrote some tales myself, for example Connected Fates and Exodus (article). Additionally, there's the translations I mentioned:
TL - German Translation
Coming Soon: TL - Russian Translation I'm also working on a cartoon adaption. You can find it here:
The Tanking League - The Actual Movie
I've been thinking about making a little game when I have nothing else to work on, but that's just a vague idea so far.
