Chapter 1: The First :icontalesoflumin:TalesOfLumin 0 0
Tallin felt the warm wind blowing in from over the Teren Wastes on her face as she looked out over the Dusk District of the Tarn Slums. Her district, she thought, the first of many to be hers. Fist Novack, the fabled leader of Advent, was losing control. He was starting to ease his iron grip, he was starting to lose the people and with them, he was losing Tarn. "Teach me all your tricks that I may use them against you, Fist." Tallin chided. He puts too much faith, blind faith, in his prized Seer, she thought to herself. A smirk started to form on Tallin's face. Everything was starting to fall into place. The Seer, Black Alice, had set all this up, unknowingly.
"It will work out all the better for me if your predictions come true, Alice. I will be first in line to claim this sleeping power you preach about." Tallin promised as she gave one last sweeping look over the Dusk District then jumped from her perch atop a ruined shelter into the alleyway below. It was time to set

The Tarn Slums
Tarn, the Capital city of the industrious Prall people, located on the Southwestern tip of Teren. It is built around the base of the only real landmark visible for many, many miles, Cinder Hill. Cinder Hill is a round and flat topped mountain, now almost completely covered by the ever expanding Tarn. The city proper is surrounded by a large brick and clay wall snaking around its perimeter, interrupted only by the three main city gates to the north, south and east. The Tarn Wall was built by the Prallian Mining Company when it first opened its doors almost half a century ago as a gesture of goodwill to the Prall living in Tarn. In recent years the wall has provided less and less security to the Tarn residents, as the seemingly constantly expanding Slums Districts have spread well beyond the Tarn Wall, reaching slowly across the newly barren wasteland of Teren. The City of Tarn started off as a centre of trade and industry in Lumin, a bustling metropolis, a mechanical and technological f

"How I miss the innocence I once possessed. I've heard naught but Gale's sinister whispers, fueling my revenge, since that fateful day those many years ago."

Tarn needs change
"Is this the life the Prall people wished for? Is this the life they would have chosen, given the choice? Probably not. There is a small part of every Prall that lives in Tarn that hopes, wishes, for a better Tarn, a better life. Teren is not what it used to be, Tarn is not what it used to be. Noru remembers when there was more than just the dust and stone, more than just the blistering heat, more than just the crime and corruption."
"Noru remembers."
"Noru remembers the life the Prall had before the mining started. The life the Teren had before the mining started. Noru pictured that life, imagined what Teren could look like once more. That was what Noru was creating, working tirelessly alongside a team of researchers in the Prallian Mining Company. Noru was given a task. Noru was working for the greater good, working for the betterment of Noru's entire race. The Lumite had the potential to change the face of Teren, change it for the better. It had the potential to save the Prallian

The Plains Of Yaren
The flowing Plains Of Yaren, named so by the Order Of Yulano for being the birthplace of the fabled Yaren Yulano, founder of the Order itself, a more serene place cannot be found in all of Lumin. Bordered by the misty Elari Fenn to the north, home of the small framed and grey skinned Elari. The tall cliffs overlooking the Fenn see no more than a white swirl dotted by the weeping treetops of the Fenn willows. To the south of the plains, Cove. Inhabited mostly by humans, the tall, fair skinned and dark haired Covian seafarers being the most prominent among them. Rolling dunes, beaches and palm trees make up most of Cove, with the chilling sea breeze blowing in from across the Foaming Shores.
Long grass of gold and green rolls out as far as the eye can see on the Plains Of Yaren, interrupted only by the grasslands gentle rises and dips. In the west of the plains, Yulano Peak, the tall and imposing mountain, the site of the long ago deserted village of the same name. The mountain is the mo

Oh yeah! I've been writing my own graphic novels for a few years now. I know it's harder to do that some people may think.  I wish you good Luck!
