New Project: War Chronicles of Nevariel
First was the Golden Age, when the Great Dragons ruled Nevariel's skies.
Second was the Silver Age, when the Mighty Giants ruled Nevariel's lands.
Third was the Bronze Age, when the Wise Elves ruled Nevariel's seas.
Fourth was the Iron Age, when the Hardy Dwarves ruled Nevariel's underworld.
Fifth is the Steel Age, when the Ambitious Humans seek to rule all of Nevariel.  
So yeah, for the past two-three months, I've put my Ardeya fantasy world project on the back-burner, and I've been brainstorming on another fantasy world-building/writing project.
This world is called Nevariel, and I'm referring to the whole project as the “War Chronicles of Nevariel”. Nevariel, unlike Ardeya, it is a classical, medieval-ish fantasy setting like so many others.
In fact, the whole project came about because I wanted to create a world, and write stories, that would be both an homage to, and an affectionate parody of, classic Dungeons-and-Dragons-ish fanta

Some notes about Tales of Ardeya
Been working on a fantasy writing project for quite a while now, and I though I'd post a bit about it here to see if there would be some interest for it from people on DA. I know most come here for the art, but I've seen stories around, so I though "why not, eh?"
This is mostly going to be some world building notes about the sources of inspiration, the tone and themes of the story, the setting, and the general world situation around the time the stories I plan to write take place in.
   First, inspiration: In designing Ardeya, I've drawn from our world's history and from a lot of pre-existing fictional settings, mainly those of fantasy role playing games, and in particular from Square-Enix's Ivalice, setting of FF12 (got to get my hands on Zodiac Age) and FFTA2.
I'm not particularly concerned about originality, more focused on consistency really, so if it fits and I like it, I throw it in.
   This leads me to the tone of the stories: What I'm aiming for here are hig

Space Patrol Battle-cruiser Arkadia
Hello, readers, and welcome to this story, Records of the Space Patrol Battle-cruiser Arkadia!
This story is to be an affectionate parody of military science-fiction stories, particularly those found in the anime medium. In that sense, it's also going to be a salute to stories that spoof sci-fi, particularly Irresponsible Captain Tylor and Martian Successor Nadessico.
At first it's probably going to be episodic, as the crew gets introduced and they unleash their shenanigans upon the Galactic Boondocks, but if I see that there's enough interest in this story, there's going to be a plot kicking in sooner than later. Said plot is going to be totally convoluted, over the top and not at all original, but that's par for the course, and I'd say how our "heroes" deal with it should be the real treat in any case. At least if I can deliver it in a decent manner, that is. Speaking of which, what you read from this point on may get re-written in the future if I think of better way

Hello Mark, many thanks for a trio of faves featuring two of our old English castles and a ruined abbey. All are much appreciated. My apologies for the very long delay in thanking you. :ashamed: I haven't logged on to dA very often in the last few months but am now trying to catch up on my thank you messages. :thanks:

You're very welcome, and it's no problem, I understand, there's life and stuff outside of DA (and the internet in general). Good luck with the rest of the catching up!
