Aenya Newsletter 4/29/20

VALIDATION!!! That's how I am feeling today. VALIDATION! SUCCESS!! HUZZAH!!! OK, what the heck am I talking about? Well, for the past decade, I've been struggling with demons of doubt and uncertainty.

People of Aenya: Zaibos

While Princess Radia personifies innocence and empathy, Zaibos is her polar opposite, the very embodiment of evil and sadism. Many believe he is a demon, spawned from the fiery depths of Aenya.

Aenya Newsletter 3/17/20

People of Aenya: Athalia, Niah, Liana

Athalia, Niah, and Liana are the daughters of Davos and Kiki, and the younger cousins of Ecthros. Oblivious to the turmoil surrounding the lands to the north (Tyrnael and Northendell) and south (Ilmarinen, Hedonia), the three girls live an idyllic life in the small trading town of Yefira, which is known for its rolling hills, windmill houses, and proximity to the Tectonic Chasm, a gorge that encircles the planet.

Ecthros's fondest memories involve watching his father at the bow, shooting fruits in the air, and... Continue Reading →

People of Aenya: Xandr

Cast off from civilization, Xandr is without home or country or possessions of any kind, but for an ancient sword with a will of its own. Utterly naked in battle, he stands intrepid and shameless, as his people, the Ilmar, have stood for millions of years. But he is never defenseless, for his shield is... Continue Reading →
