Howdy Thorne! Been doing much writing lately?
Heaps of writing! I’ve been cracking down on both Encyclopedia Sarcadia and my upcoming series for the blog, “Behind the Pixels” which should be ready in a week or so!
Damn! Sounds like you’ve been super busy. Let’s start with Encyclopedia Sarcadia. Where are we at?
Last week I continued to focus on all things dark and evil from Tenebris. I’m happy to say the section on witches has now been completed.
Witches ey? Are we talking about the ugly, green skinned hags who fly around on broomsticks?
Far from it. The witches of Sarcadia are practitioners of the dark arts who have learnt their craft from the books provided to them by Belzabardos, the Chatterer of Secrets. Not all witches are the same as there are various forms of black magic. For example, there are “hexxers” who specialise in curses while some witches may become “necromancers”, summoners who can raise and control the dead.
So can anyone become a witch? Is there something you need to do to get hold of this Belzabardos chap?
You need to provide a worthy sacrifice to the Chatterer of Secrets to not only get his attention, but to prove you’re serious about becoming a witch. Anyone can become a witch as long as the sacrifice is right. I should point out there are male witches too, so not every witch is a female. Male witches aren’t called “wizards”, or “sorcerers”, or “warlocks”. A male witch is called a witch. A female witch is called a witch.
Well, you know what they say, “A witch is a witch is a witch is a witch”! Have there been any powerful witches in Sarcadia’s history?
There have been a few. In fact, one is currently alive. Her name is Daiyu Shen and she is in command of the most powerful witch coven in Sarcadia. Her disciples are spread out all over the planet, committing inhumane and horrible acts to please the Chatterer of Secrets.
Then there was a witch by the name of Michael Karabos, a powerful necromancer who once terrorised Sarcadia. He amassed an army so powerful it took a combined effort of several armies to defeat him.
I want to know more, but I know you’re just saying this stuff to tease everyone.
Well, I did mention I’ll be providing some extracts from my book in due time. I’ll eventually start doing some “spotlight” posts on certain characters so my readers can start getting used to them. It would be another good way to introduce everyone to the Cardinal series.
I like the sound of that! So, this blog series you’re working on… We can expect it soon?
You definitely will be seeing it next week… If everything goes to plan of course! I’m going to briefly redirect all my attention to the “Behind The Pixels” series, which means I’ll be taking a quick break away from Encyclopedia Sarcadia. Fear not though, this just means I’ll be freed up to focus on it a lot more in the weeks to come.
Sounds like a plan! I’ll let you get back to it! Break a leg!
I’d rather break a leg than an arm, otherwise I wouldn’t be able to write…
Yeah, that would totally suck!
