City takeover

The other day, I ended up having a scroll through some old blog posts and one caught my eye that I'd completely forgotten about. Since I've written that post, new novels about that hinted-at history have begun rolling out, but I'm ignoring those until I get my hands on a copy!   Anyway, the point … Continue reading City takeover

Razir – a continuation

(This piece is part of a work in progress, a continuation of a piece I wrote in 2014, where I spent 20 minutes writing what I had brewed in my head so far. I've since wanted to go back and rewrite that piece, make it closer to how I want it to be. I probably … Continue reading Razir – a continuation

Don’t call it a comeback

Because that would be far too premature! It's been about 18 months since I've posted anything to this blog, and maybe a year since I feel like I've written anything meaningful. But there's still the constant buzz in my head of ideas, I'm just a bit crap at bothering to write them down anywhere!   … Continue reading Don’t call it a comeback

Z is for: Zomg it’s finished!

I'm cheating a little bit with this last one. I have a couple of ideas for how to do Z but everything I've had a go with so far hasn't worked or made me want to write more than two lines. That's it, a full month of updates looking at elements of the Old Crown. … Continue reading Z is for: Zomg it’s finished!

Y is for: Yaninda

The known world, the realm of mortals, is not the only part of existence. The spirits live on an adjacent place, a place that some few are able to pierce through to with magikal power. These world's beside the realm of mortals are known as Yaninda. Ancient legends speak of such places, such as the … Continue reading Y is for: Yaninda

X is for: Xeito

A great many secret societies inhabit Queenstown, and most claim to know the hidden secrets of Ascension. Members must follow instructions to attain levels of being that allow them to Ascend as gods, and the various different methods or oaths are known as the Xeito. So far, there is no direct evidence that following the … Continue reading X is for: Xeito

W is for: Witchblood

In the Old Crown, those touched by a lineage of magikal power are known as Witchbloods. Whilst hereditary, sometimes the witchblood skips generations only to appear again. Long ago, the natural order of the world brought forth individuals who had innate magikal abilities. Some speculate it may have been caused by interference by the legendary … Continue reading W is for: Witchblood

V is for: the Valley of Faces

The most sacred site to the various Gargant tribes, the Valley of Faces is the closest thing to a capital that they have. Located high in the mountains, the Valley and it's approaches are the only neutral ground held by the various Gargant tribes. It is here that all Gargants come on a pilgrimage the … Continue reading V is for: the Valley of Faces

U is for: Utari militia

The Utari militia  are the standing military forces of the Old Crown. The Utari date back to before the conquest of the Moorish, when the main ship used by the escapees from Istan was called an Utar. As each of the ships' captains was responsible for his or her own crew, the Utari also became … Continue reading U is for: Utari militia

A-z month almost finished

Coming into the home stretch with my A-z month, and I've really enjoyed it. I've had most of the letter planned out since the start of the month, but changed a few of them as I got to them - if I'm not in the mood to write o  a certain topic, I have too … Continue reading A-z month almost finished
