Hello everyone. My name is Ian Newbold and I'm an amateur storyteller rather than an artist. I enjoy looking at all the brilliant artwork here on deviantart and occasionally I commission artists to help bring my words to life.
That ancient storyteller up above is called Monsewer Raconteur (artwork by Cindy Dukino) and he is an Elder Lord of Skoog who has chosen to manifest in the form of humankind. He is President of the Skoog Guild of Storytellers which is based in the City of Antiquity on the Skoog Astral Plane.
The Skoog Astral Plane sits at the heart of Newbold World which is an alternative universe being created here in cyberspace. The Elder Lords of Skoog are the masters of the most ancient and sophisticated magics and can travel across time, space and and dimensions. They are the architects behind the creation of Newbold World.
The Skoog Guild of Storytellers is writing the history of this alternative universe and the stories that portray the exploits of its most famous personalities and characters. The Skoog Guild of Artists (several of whom have galleries here on deviantart) are providing artwork to help bring the written words to life.
Monsewer Raconteur and his colleagues are planning to tell you a little more about the creation of Newbold World. Newbo Snippets will appear in this gallery from time to time to introduce you very briefly to some of the key events, organisations and characters. Each new arrival will be announced above by means of a journal entry.
