For a while now I've been wanting to join the scanlation world, and one of the projects that came to mind was Holy Avenger.
Holy Avenger is not a manga, it's a Brazilian comic book, based on a D&D campaign, but it's heavily influenced by manga and so it might hold interest to some manga reading crew.
The story is set in the world of Arton, which is very similar to Earth, with the exception of being a place for heroes and adventurers. Almost a typical medieval fantasy story, huh? Not quite. Along with a large deal of humorous situations, some inclined to ecchi, there's also an interesting plot, with unusual developments.
Certainly, it might not be an epic like Dai no Daibouken, much less Berserk. Some could say it's a bit similar to Slayers.
In any case, since it's not a Japanese production, it has, of course, a few distinctive elements, that may prove interesting or not. Judge for yourselves.
I'm not really good with describing without spoiling much, so, if you guys want more info:
Holy Avenger - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (detailed description, with spoilers, so be warned)
Baka-Updates Manga - Holy Avenger (short description, adapted from the first chapter introduction)

That has been my first scanlation, so it's a bit flawed. Morten kindly has done some further editing in order to make it look more fitting:

I intend to translate the whole first volume (8 chapters), and if it's well received, I'll go all the way, including the extra and special chapters.
Once they're ready I'll post the links here.
Look forward to the next releases, then. ^^
