I sighed: for being our first experience in the Deep Roads -at least for three of us- we were holding it together well, but sometimes I felt the need to joke a bit, to loosen up... a need Eloise and Cullen did not share. “That's weird.” Carver said, “I don't sense any darkspawn.” “These are the roads, how can you possibly not sense any darkspawn?” Cullen asked with a frown. “Creepy isn't it?” Anders joined in, “I sense something, but it's not a Darkspawn it's more like... a warden

DO YOU REALLY THINK YOU HAVE ANY CHANCE? “We can’t use magic here.” Jowan muttered, “The risk of breaking the Veil...” “There's a demon here: the Veil is already broken.” Maker bless practical Eloise. “You suck anyway.” “Cullen, that’s not helping.” I grunted, “The Veil is so thin we’re practically in the Fade... so I guess our best chance is to a

We didn’t get far when we heard someone approaching from the woods. We all readied our weapons when I heard a familiar voice calling out to us: “Who are you? Identify yourselves!” “Grey Wardens.” I declared. I couldn’t quite place that voice until I spotted the man who had talked emerging from the shadows: there was only one man I knew with that shade of red in the hair an

We already had our farewell when she left for Orlais a couple of months before, what could she have to tell me that was so important as to keep her from reaching the Maker’s side and basking in the light and peace she so strongly believed in? “I’m glad to see you again, Wynne.” I told her with a smile, “Though I wish we could have met under differ

Ah, the Grey Wardens, the great heroes of the legends... and not the average Grey Warden, mind you, but the mighty Hero of Ferelden himself! That's right, the Grey Warden who ended the Fifth Blight and lived to tell the tale, the filthy son of a bitch who vouched for the mages who needed to be Annulled for breaking all the Circle laws - how Greagoir allowed that is still a mystery to me, perhaps he was mind-controlled by blood magic...

The bannorn of Dragon's Peak is quite the place in late spring, when the green of the fields starts turning gold, and a warm breeze makes you forget we’re so south that we get stuck in the snow every other winter’s day. That's why I chose Dragon's Claw to settle down: it’s a small village near the bigger cities, the perfect place to hide in plain sight. It is true, I'm a blood mage, a maleficar, but now I can finally tell I’m doing something good with my life. My name is Jowan, but everyone here knows me as... “Master Lewyn!

May I kiss you? These four words replayed again and again in his mind, turning his stomach not in an unpleasant way. Pato never considered himself as a sexual creature. He had no notion of romantic love, if "love" at all. Yes, he knew he was capable of "loving" someone as he did, often even, he loved his friends, his charges, he loved animals, but the notion of romantic love had always been an abstract notion he thought he would never understand. He just couldn't feel it. Correction: He just never felt it. He remembered his first kiss. He was sixteen. He had been living in Seleny for four years, working with the Grumpy Boars. He couldn't rem

I. Keepers of the Keep Ewan My name is Ewan Amell, formerly mage of the Circle of Kinloch Hold, Warden Commander of Ferelden and ruler of the Arling of Amaranthine. Most people know me as the Hero of Ferelden. Five years ago I saved Thedas from the Blight, and while I was at it I put two kings on the throne, arranged a royal marriage, ended a millenarian curse, gave the Circle independence and found a lover. It may sound like I’m some sort of superhuman, but it was mostly desperation and common sense driving me, while some help from my friends, allies and sheer luck made me succeed. Only those who really know me believe me when I say t

In Peace Vigilance: The complete eBook
With the publishing tonight of the last chapter of In Peace Vigilance, I have uploaded an epub version of the novelization (you can download it here). The file is around 8 Mb as it includes some illustrations (taken from the comic plus a couple of unpublished scenes) and should be compatible with most e-readers and tablets. Let me know if you encounter problems with it - specifying which device/app you use to read eBooks. UPDATE: I have updated the file to include more illustrations that were formerly included in the file but couldn't be displayed due to a validation error of the epub (^^;) The file now includes the very last page of the C

In Peace Vigilance - Novel version
As I had hinted, today I released the first chapter of In Peace Vigilance novelization, as writing is faster than drawing and though I plan to (eveeeentually) finish the comic, I prefer to deliver a final version of the story ASAP since I want to focus on other (original) projects. There are ten chapters of it, and they will be released each saturday at midnight GMT (so friday 10 PM my time). I sugges those who have read the comic to read AT THE VERY LEAST from chapter 5 on, since from that point the story has been slightly changed from the comic version due to the revelations of what an Eluvian is exactly in The Masked Empire first and Drag

Future - and past - Projects: state of art
I have come to realize I am neglecting deviantart for some time now, as I am immersed in work and roleplay - in my spare time, and though I still am working on projects I plan to submit here none of them is nearby ready. I have moved again, from Rome to the province of Caserta, and I am still unemployed though I manage to do some occasional job, and I should have a little more free time am comfort to resume working at a faster pace over these project I plan to submit here. Those of you who follow me for "In Peace Vigilance" should be happy to know I have news, one good and a couple not so bad. The good news is: I am still working on it. As

Ciao Francesco tutto bene? Volevo chiederti una cosa: il tuo racconto Magenta Celeste è piaciuto molto alla mia compagna, che fa una scuola di cinema. Siccome stava cercando una storia per fare un cortometraggio, pensava di usare il tuo racconto per il compito. A te andrebbe bene? Ovviamente saresti nei titoli visto che l'idea è tua, e non dovrebbe esser pubblicata da nessuna parte essendo un compito per la scuola. Fammi sapere!
A presto :D

a me va benissimo, però mi piacerebbe vedere che ne esce... magari anche solo la sceneggiatura, visto che non sarà una cosa pubblicata. Chiariamoci, non che intenda "approvarla" ma è la prima (e probabilmente unica :D) volta che mi capita una cose del genere e mi piacerebbe "assistere" un po' al processo. :)

Certamente! ti dico già che le riprese saranno attorno a gennaio/febbraio, ma devono ancora redigere sceneggiatura e tutto quanto. Grazie per la disponibilità! ^__^

Figurati. Potresti chiedere di mandarmi una copia della sceneggiatura quando è pronta? Non per fare delle correzioni o che, solo per vedere come viene un mio racconto in quella forma... la mia mail ce l'hai?
(tra parentesi, avevo una mezza idea di proporti una collaborazione in progetto di animazione/video musicale, se può interessarti...)
