Stone Brigands: Episode 2

Episode 2: The Scandalous Companion

Enter, Duo

Here is the third sketch, kindly illustrated by Len Weatherly, of Duo the jackal. The drawing itself is nearly spot-on with what I had mentally pictured. An excellent job. Duo is the original companion of the band, a good friend of the human, and main character, Flint. Duo himself does not have much skill with magic, […]

Vix

Ladies and gentlemen, another great sketch by Mr. Len Weatherly! This time it is a female Vix woman in my part of the fantasy collaboration world. She is another addition to the main band, a ninja style fighter with unknown origins. Her name happens to also be Vix, an obvious chosen name to hide a […]

Progress Journal Entry 5: Chapters 21-25

It’s been another month since the last five chapters were done. That’s in part due to August being a month where I tend to take a mental vacation from everything, but mostly because I have begun to write in a more random order based on my day to day mood. Chapters 21 to 25 are […]

Project Tango

It is always healthy to maintain more than one writing project at a time. Project Tango is my side project that is still in its infancy. Well, it hasn’t really been born yet. It is little more than an idea and is far, far away from its first words. To be honest, I do not […]

Holy [expletive], I just brutally killed one of my characters!

So, um…yeah. All of the corners in my bedroom are occupied by furniture or something else, so where am I supposed to crawl into a ball and weep? Alright, let’s be serious here, killing off your characters is tough. Who but we, the authors, have a greater connection to our characters? It can be a […]

Progress Journal Entry 4: Chapters 16-20

Phew! That was the most difficult section, so far. I just finished chapter 20 a couple of days ago. I got hit by two different forces at the same time, which both made my writing per day less than I wanted. First off, all of these chapters were hard to write for different reasons. Two […]

POLL!: The Lieutenants: Choose your favourite characters

Now that all of The Eleven have been revealed, I wonder, who do you like best? By choosing your top four (you can choose 4 of the 10 options), it helps me know initially what readers think of them. This is especially useful since as I am writing this post here and now, most of […]

The Lieutenants: 1st, Otannus

“There is a greatness that comes only once every few generations. A talent so rare, some are born and die without witnessing its mark on history. Otannus does not belong to that highest order, for he is greater. He is the anomaly of time. His is the talent that comes only Once. He has no […]

The Lieutenants: 2nd, General Victus

“Victus! Victus! Victus!” -Victory chants, Battles of Athos: 8th Engagement General is another title that has lasted through the ages, and it is usually a customary title for the High-King as his word has the final say. Victus, a weathered man in his forties, unofficially holds it, however. His charisma and proven strategic genius in […]

POLL!: Which POV character’s story are you most interested in reading about?

The introductions are done, and I have posted a short summary for each of my nine POV characters for FOTS. You can find them all listed here. Each summary is very short. With enough votes, it may help me see which of my characters are more interesting to readers. For those who like voting on […]

POV: “Captain”

The Captain is one of the banished people, who now live on the south-east island of shame. It has been almost 500 years since the so-called Holy Ones were last seen on the mainland that the other nations now disrespectfully call Pentia. The name insinuates five peoples existence in the world, when in fact there […]

The Lieutenants: 3rd, Mantus the Enduring

“Thank the Gods he is on our side!” –Rammos, 6th Lieutenant Mantus the Enduring he is named, for there was no ready traditional name available for his unique abilities. Enduring was chosen as it had the same style as the other titles in the Aquari armies, but everyone knows him as Mantus the Unbreakable. They […]

Progress Journal Entry 3: Chapters 11-15

Another milestone! Fifteen chapters out of the seventy-nine have been written for the first draft. In this batch, I only experienced minor setbacks due to a few job interviews I had this week. Fingers crossed for a call early next week. One of them was a great fit for me. Anyway, these latest chapters were […]

POV: “Academic”

The Academic lives in the great, shared, Holy City of Penta with her father, a Polarian councilman. For his young and bright, intelligent daughter, he has privately hired a prominent Kanari scholar to enhance her learning. It is a controversial move, as scholars are known to dabble with philosophical topics that extend far beyond the […]

The Lieutenants: 4th, Pactus the Strong

“Word is someone brought the First to one knee this morning. Who was it?” –The Lieutenant Training Grounds, Islos So, we have come to the top four. These are great men amongst great men. Not great for the goodness of their personal intentions or from the morality of the outcomes they carve into history with […]

First look at Rees (short excerpt)

This is another short excerpt, this time showing the beginning of the story of the Archer POV, Rees. This is taken from chapter 7 of book one, and it is in first draft form (i.e. limited figurative language and only basic descriptions). It is far from great but I just want to show a little […]

POV: “Soldier”

The Soldier is a gifted talent, and has done well for himself. He has been in a few battles, performed exceptionally, and has received attention to the point of gaining his own king’s favour. From the outside his life appears to be great. Yet besides all of the positive happenings in his professional life, he […]

The Lieutenants: 5th, Arturus Mariner

“Such a shame” Arturus is a rarity among the Aquari. He is a fine sailor and works as a non-military man on the side. The nickname Mariner has become a surname, a very uncommon occurrence in their culture, and it was most likely first meant to be a mocking of his lifestyle. Typically in Aquari […]

Pentia A-Z: D is for Daren

Daren is a Talonian ranger. He comes from the capital, Talon, the second-largest city in the world. Like other Talonians, he has the typical brown hair and brown eyes. A ranger in the Talonian military ranged forces has national guard duties. They do not hunt and carry letters from place to place like other archers […]
