In this episode, many of the characters who will play roles in the first season are introduced.
This is the first chapter of my personal project, Elancia Chronicles. Anyone who has been following me for any amount of time knows I've been working on this since 2008. I've pretty much exclusively shared the music until now. This is the first time I've truly felt comfortable sharing any parts of the story online. I will be posting one 'episode' (what I call chapters in this odd little story) per week. I'm trying to keep each one under 20 pages, so that people will actually be able to get through them.
It's a little humorous, a little complex as it goes, and a little dark. It isn't a cut-and-dry adventure story, either. A lot of it deals with the people involved, and it delves deeply into many.
Anyone who enjoyed gaming in the 90s, or has fond memories Japanese RPGs, The Slayers, or adventure stories in general should hopefully get a kick out of this. I've poured my heart and soul into this for years now, and I finally feel it's ready to share.
Elancia is a very complicated world, and I have a small almanac of countries, factions, etc. Most won't become important until we're further into the story, but please feel free to check HERE for any information about the world that you need to refer back to.
OR, Y'KNOW, LEAVE A COMMENT! Let's talk! :D
Notes: Two of the protagonists speak dialects that reflect the countries they grew up in. These dialects may be a bit difficult to understand at first, but I've tried to keep them as simple and as consistent as possible.
