Mythica: Where in the World?

Where does this story take place?

Deira, the principal setting for Mythica, is an outlying kingdom in the vast Vitalion Empire inhabited by a motley assortment of humans, elves, dwarves, orcs, ogres, dark elves and every fantasy creature imagined.

Against the backdrop of the Vitalion invasion of Deira, Szorlok the Necromancer discovered the Darkspore – the obsidian heart of the Lich King – an artifact of immense power that could render him immortal and give him control over the dead. A group of wizards, led by the mighty Gojun Pye, defeated Szorlok and the legendary necromancer slipped away into shadow.

Now, twenty years later, Deira is firmly under Vitalion control – patrolled by her soldiers and ruled by her magistrates – but remains a corrupt backwater on the edge of the Outlands – the vast wilderness of ruined civilizations, fearsome creatures, and untold treasure. Marek, our heroine, lives in a small hamlet on the very borders of this wilderness near a settlement (Merren) large enough to support a branch of the Thieves Guild, a crooked Magistrate, and several public houses – the most notorious being Hammerhead’s Inn, a hub for adventurers, fortune seekers, outlaws and anyone seeking to escape the oppression of Vitalion rule.

It is into this wild land that Marek escapes, set on finding fortune and glory, and carving out her own place in a dangerous world.

Mythica: A Quest for Heroes – Update 1

Holy wow!  1 day and the project is already sitting at 44% funded!  That’s simply incredible!  I’m blown away by the positive reception and reaction of each and every person that has thus far backed the project!  If you haven’t had the chance to do so yet, there’s still 29 days left.  Here’s a link to the Kickstarter page – 

Also, for those of you who haven’t seen the video attached to the project yet, I’ve included it here for reference.  If that doesn’t get you psyched up for the novel, I’m not sure anything will 🙂  Hat’s off to Zachary Strickland at FHP for his work compiling the film.

Over the remaining 29 days of the Kickstarter, I’ll be posting updates on a lot of things.  I’ll be making posts talking about specific characters, my process of turning a movie into a book, a history of the Mythica world, and much much more.

Stay tuned!
