Out with the old, in with the new. That is the way of things. We say goodbye to that which is deemed aged or decrepit and move on to, as D.W. so eloquently puts it, the “brand new shiny.”
We are a society that is obsessed with newness, from our entertainment to our technology; we are quick to abandon that which is passé. By the time I am done with this post, it will probably be time for me to upgrade this new computer, for goodness sake.
Sometimes, though, it is important to embrace that which is classic, that which has withstood the test of time. Like, say, oh, I don’t know … reading, perhaps. Yes, folks, that’s right. READING. You heard it hear first.
In an age where we can be inundated with our entertainment in the blink of an eye in a thousand different platforms, the printed word still rules. Another classic, in my not so humble opinion … epic fantasy.
In Necromancers’ Pride – Quest for Eldertone, we wanted to take a time honored and classic genre and give it our own unique twist. We didn’t want to reinvent the wheel, just put our own spin on it (classic pun). We love the ability we now have to merge new media with the printed word. That having been said, it is still the classic format of long form novels that engages and inspires people.
From Velladriana, the young slave girl rescued from her tormentors by the brave but inexperienced Corwyn, to the nefarious Lord Cartigas and his ceaseless yearning for power, we invite you to experience a world that deals with real emotions, wants and needs and places them in incredible locations where magic bends the fabric of reality.
We want you, our readers, to be taken on a mystical journey in the Known Kingdoms of Tarune, whisked away on fast-paced and action-packed adventure, and drawn in by fully realized, multi-dimensional and human characters (whether they actually are human or not). We have done a lot of work to create a world that exists outside of and beyond the pages that you read. We want you to feel that, when you enter this realm, you are entering a fully realized and thought out universe.
The New Year is upon us, so enjoy yourselves and and get ready for the upcoming release of our “brand new shiny.”
What new adventures and challenges do you look forward to in the upcoming year?
This is your community. We want to hear from you.
