Hey guys! Just wanted to drop in and say that I'm still kicking. I've been pretty distracted lately, had some sucky moments, but that's the past. Now I'm shifting my focus towards more creative outlets. With that, let me get yall introduced to this story I've been thunking lately!
So this story is called Sacrament. The society is modern-fantasy, so like cell phones and stuff, but dragons and magic as well. Now, this story is gonna be more like Game of Thrones-esque fantasy, where it's not lighter-hearted. Not that obscene though. There's death, slavery, blood, etc. It's based on a world called Arvum. Here's what the world looks like:
The story mainly takes place in Inall and Vrideth. I have yet to make a detailed map of Inall, but here's Vrideth:
The main character is Falls-with-Stars, an Inalli. Inalli are pretty much dragon people, and they're known for being the first people to tame dragons and use them in domestic life. Here's what she looks like:
Her personality is that she's a bit stubborn when it comes to choices and whatnot. Falls is mellow when it comes to new people, and she doesn't share much besides what needs to be shared. With friends and family, she opens up like a book. She also does some pretty brash stuff that sensible people would think is best not to be done.
I have yet to make full body drawings of them, but throughout the story, she makes some friends who stay with her in her journeys. They are:Eossos:
A female Alfeli (cat people). She's a trader and childhood friend of Falls. Like a cat, she can be lazy and smug.Vieridis:
A male elf. He's an ex-sex slave, and he is extremely awkward and shy with people. He has trust issues, but learns to live with his friends.Sarvus:
A male human. A war criminal in the past. He started something pretty serious and paid for his actions. He now lives somewhat nomadic with his bred wyvern, Junebug.Liala:
A female Drom (wolf people). She's an excellent archer and has a burning hatred for Spirits (magical race). Being Drom, she is very prideful and does not get along with Eossos. She owns a bred wyvern named Rain.
After she meets Liala, Falls-with-Stars soon tames a wild-born White Death wyvern and names him Bluefyre. Here he is:
What makes Bluefyre so special and terrifying is that he's 1) huge. Compared to other wyvern species, he towers over them. Imagine Drogon in GoT season 7, but a little smaller than that. And 2) his species can breathe fire that's extremely hot. Normal dragon fire can easily burn people, but can't singe dragonhide. White Death fire can torch dragons and wyverns in seconds. Their fire isn't magically altered, but rather naturally hot. However, with magic added, the fire is truly devastating.
I should have the first chapter done soon. I've brainstormed most of the story already.
