Where in the World are My Visitors From?

warofmaskestitleBlackRedDA by LavenderBlade

I updated my series title in December 2017 to War of Masks. It better expresses the overall theme of the series. Masks are an important part in this universe even thought not every character has a literal mask. The main story revolves around the continental conflict in the Garwara with it's longtime rival the Kogasuma and a rising southern power the Sanobe. There is also many clans and wondering warriors that also play a key role. :katana:

I want to thank my friend :iconjeff3333: for his kindness last year when I visited the United Kingdom. It was great to meet a friend from :deviantart: in person and I had a blast seeing his artwork. One of my highlights in '17. :thumbsup:

I hope everyone is doing well. :)
