The book, and advice
Join to comment
Okay. So hey nuf I'm "fairly" new to the pages and I've just finished reading all of the "mythada" stories and heard you are writing a book about it and I'm so hoping that you explain more because In the start of the first series "legacies" i found it confusing. It's as if you expect us to know what "the nether" is straight away when we are just as knew to this as you were when you started thinking about the comic/story. So a word of advice is from me, DON'T rush things like the comic versions were a bit rushed. I know that is hard because I have written a few stories myself and explain in more detail about the nether and the guardians because i would personally want to know more about them etc.

Thanks, Firestorm

Don't worry. Im up to chapter 4 in the book and it isn't rushed at all. Its at a nice easy pace while still keeping new things coming just in time to keep you interested. And about the Nether and Guardians and whatnot: More will be explained in the mini-comics, but here are the basics. The Nether is a seperate dimension from the world where Mythada is found. It is the home of the demons and can be accessed through various portals. The origins of the Guardians will be revealed with the comics, but a Guardians is someone who died fighting against evil to protect the ones they love, who are then given second life with more power to continue their work and watch over those they fought for. The Aether is the opposite of the Nether, and is where the Guardians reside when they are no longer able to physically help others.

Right thanks okay im understanding more now. allso I've been thinknig of a way you could start your book if you dont like the begining.Here it is.

"The nether,homeworld of the demons of mythada,opposite dimension of the aether. The land of the guardians.Standing between those plains lies mythada,the land of the humans and trolls.Never in peace can one another live.There is no peace.There must be war! The lands of Viken and grimlaiken(please correct that spelling mistake) stand as opposite sides of valley and to the north is the rensval valley."

Okay correct that for any mistakes.

Um... no offense, but that sounds a little cheesy. Especially for a book. Here, Ill post the prologue for you, just to get a taste of the book. There is also a sample chapter in my "Happy Birthday Mythada!" page.

Heres the current draft of the prologue of the book.

The Grand Alliance. Thatís what they called themselves. Years ago, they began to flourish in these lands. Mythada. It once belonged to us, until this society of humans took refuge here. They werenít any trouble in the old days, but things have changed. Power shifted, and tensions arose within the kingdom. The Book is the cause of all of this. The Grand Alliance once prospered. The people listened to their king without question, and followed the wisdom of the mages and scholars. Mages healed the sick and were considered to be the doctors of the kingdom. The scholars were their moral support. Their structure. That structure was desecrated by the mage Zirold many years ago. He found the Book in the mountains of the desert, in a library. This lead to chaos among the people of the kingdom.
Zirold returned to the kingdom and brought the Book to the Mage Tower. Every mage sought after the Book, for they had never before seen such an artifact. Most did not recognize the destructive power within its pages. Some did. It tore the men apart, two sides arguing against one another. Many mages believed the Book to be a gift, that they could reform the monarchy of the kingdom and better the lives of the people. Some mages believed the Book to be evil and wanted it destroyed. Eventually, the scholars were brought into this conflict, and a civil war broke out.
Groups of people from both sides roamed the city, converting as many men and women to their cause as they could. Two sides began fighting, while others remained neutral in this conflict. The city was divided. It was the people who sought after the Book that struck first, the Grimalkin. They stormed the kings keep in order to overthrow him, that they might cast out the Vixen. The Vixen knew the evil of the Book was destroying the kingdom, and fought back against the Grimalkin. During the battle, the kingís life was claimed, as well as order in the kingdom. The war consumed the city, turning it into a battlefield.
Each faction soon realized the severity of the situation. If this war continued in this city, the lives of the civilians would be taken. And so, both Vixen and Grimalkin abandoned the city. The Vixen fled north into the mountains, while the Grimalkin fled to the west. The people who did not belong to either faction fled into the mountains far to the north. Each group created a new city, and new leaders were appointed. Having established peace in his new kingdom, the leader of the Vixen, Mirus, sent scouts to the Grimalkin to discover the strength of their enemy. The new leader of the Grimalkin had been appointed: Mirusí own brother, Leod. Upon the arrival of the scouts, Mirus decided to lead an attack on the city of Ledona to retrieve the Book.
In the dead of night, the Vixen army marched on the Grimalkin city. The gates were broken, the wall breached, and the city stormed. Mirus led a small group of soldiers to the mages tower to find the Book. Zirold stopped them. In a brave battle, Mirus and his soldiers fought against Zirold, but the power of the Book had made him too powerful for them. In a final effort, Mirus used his powers to collapse the tower, taking Ziroldís life.
The Vixen were victorious, and fled with the Book. As the army returned to their city, Mirus traveled to hide the Book in The Crater, a large sinkhole near the base of the mountains created long ago. Securing the Book in a small glass case upon an altar, Mirus returned to his city. Aside from the occasional raid on each otherís cities, the Grimalkin and Vixen entered a period of peace. Years passed, and the memory of that first battle faded from most. A new generation was being raised, and the Book had been all but forgotten by the majority of people. Forgotten, until one dayÖ

No, I haven't touched the book in a very long time. I've pretty much become inactive when it comes to building MOCs and posting stuff one here. I'm just too busy with other stuff, and am focusing on a different hobby right now:

Don't worry though, the books for Chronicles of Mythada and No Refuge are still things I want to do in the future, just not right now.
