Title: Any of you happen to be a writer?
Post by: Prpl_Mage on January 19, 2017, 04:02:58 PM
I know Gary started writing but I recently picked up a fantasy novel called Battle Mage, and the capitol of the country just happens to be called Charas and is described like this:

"Colored glass filled the windows on the top floor in most houses in the Old City, a leftover fashion from the days when everyone had sung hymns to the Maker."

And

"Compared to other cities he'd visited, the architecture in Charas was simple, but there was a certain beauty in the uniform two and three storey buildings of the Old City. All the straight lines, blue slate roofs and lack of ascetic decoration spoke to him of strength and reliability."

Maybe I'm just reading too much into this?

I can see the parallels.

Sounds deliciously suspicious! But wouldn't the writer have shown it off here if they loved us so much?

That's true. The author is a Stephen Aryan but maybe he was like "charas is dead" and just wanted to give it some tribute. Or maybe someone mentioned writing a book some time back but no one remembers?

Oi, I might be a little late, but, I've moved a bit beyond starting writing and a few years ago I actually did release something, which nobody seemed to want to purchase :P

But anyway, http://authorblog.multiverseworks.com/downloads/phandagron1.pdf (http://authorblog.multiverseworks.com/downloads/phandagron1.pdf)

One day I'll rewrite the entire story so that it works better into this entire universe I've created. First though I need to finish writing Eldritch Fairytales, which I've been rewriting a few years ago. I'm still stuck at chapter four though.

Oh yeah I read that, how long ago was it?
