Favorite Scene: Necromancers’ Pride:

Tides of War

Hello everyone! Happy Friday!

Without giving to much away, this week is a continuation of my favorite scenes across the Necromancers’ Pride saga. Today is book two of the Necromancers’ Pride saga, Tides of War!

I’m gonna be honest, this was a tough one.

My favorite scene in Tides of War is when one of our heroes sacrificed themselves to save the Pride. An Act of Valor.

After the fight, it was a gloomy moment for all our traveling companions when they discovered their friend was dead. In my eyes, this person was virtuous. A stable caretaker turned hero of Tarune. In sacrificing oneself to defend the greater good, we can’t help but think that that person was noble, righteous and a good leader. Not only does this show their true character, we fall in love with them no matter what preceded the event. There was a brief foreshadowing of this character’s death previously in Quest for Elderstone. I just thought it wouldn’t happen. I wanted them to get up off the ground, but it was too late, they had made the sacrifice. Did I mention how this scene kicked butt with so much action? An Epic and thrilling confrontation that decides the ultimate fate of the Pride is what we witness. All I can say is WOW.

Like I always say, see ya next week!

The Known Kingdoms: Canodria

FullSizeRender (5)

Kingdom of Canodria

Government: Monarchy

Current Ruler: King Forlmorlaine

Climate: Mild to alpine

Population: 4 Million

Canodria is one of the richest kingdoms in all the Known Kingdoms. Not only does Canodria boast extensive gold, silver and mineral mines, but its vast and differing climes give it claim to much natural beauty. The Burnt Mesas tower formidably in the southwest, while the mighty River Ennin crashes weaves its powerful course throughout the whole of the country, splitting it in twain. The Locksdale Foothills in the east roll gently, and the flat lands open to beautiful white sand beaches in the south. The one scenic blot on the kingdom is the waste of the Kerathic Plains, where the land was permanently scarred to arid ruin in the battle of the Mourning Night. The haunted ruins of Kerath a stark reminder of that awful event.

Canodria’s cities are well developed and stand as models of modern civil engineering. From Dun Sparrow to the capitol of Medlin, each city is well designed and constructed. Canodria is known as the Cradle of the civilized world. Wise King Forlmorlaine even brokered a deal with the mighty Necromancers to ensure that his kingdom would have the benefit of their power. Though the presence of the Necromancers has grown troublesome in recent years, due in no small part to the attacks against them by Maars the Lector, they maintain a fragile peace with the government.

Canodria’s military is strong, both its army and naval forces are among the most well provisioned and trained in the kingdoms. They need that strength, as many kingdoms are covetous of Canodria’s riches. When in the Known Kingdoms, no trip would be complete without sampling the varied and amazing offerings of Canodria, the cradle of the civilized world.

Caiya’s Blog: Casting Nobility

Hi, everybody. This week I am on an extended field trip for my school. As you know, I take my schooling very seriously. I would not be blogging if I didn’t. So, since I have to prepare for my trip (more info about that in posts to come), I am going to go back into the vault and give you another of my casting choices.

Super excited to talk to you guys when I get back from my adventures. In the mean time, here is my casting choice for one of my favorite characters: Crispin.

Crispin:

Josh Hutcherson
(This choice was extremely hard, considering the fact that there are a lot of great actors that can play a prissy little brat, but I think the Hunger Games star was right for the choice.)

See you next week.

Read NP, watch movies, and stay posted!

The Known Kingdoms: Therid

FullSizeRender (6)

Country of Therid

Government: Republic

Current Ruler: Grand Communal Council

Climate: Mild to arid

Population: 2.7 Million

Therid is the melting pot of all the Kingdoms. With common borders with Canodria, Aldara, Medioc and Daldra, Therid prides itself on having the most liberal and accepting stance of country in the Known Kingdoms. A Republic, Therid elects its leaders, opting for a national policy of total neutrality. Because of this stance, not have the Weavers historically held their main Guild house, or Theater, in the capitol city of Keldria, but the Oslyn have established their base of operations there, as well. The Glass Tower, the Oslyn training academy, is viewed by many as one of the wonders of the Known Kingdoms. As a recognized institution of lawful intent, the Oslyn base in the neutral country serves to define their role as protectors without favoritism to great effect. It is also of great benefit to Therid’s economy, as they needn’t fear raising a strong military, as they have one of the most powerful and well trained fighting forces housed within their borders.

Therid’s capitol city of Keldria is known for its architectural wonders and institutes of advanced learning. Neutrality brings bright ideas and non-conventional ways of thinking, all of which are respected in Therid. In the western portion of the country is the famous battlefield of Bronell’s Ridge, site of one of the largest terrestrial battles in any age. It was a result of the battle of Bronell’s Ridge that led to Therid’s stance of neutrality, thus creating a country of relative peace and prosperity. If you are a young Magus and want to visit a place where you can practice your magics in peace without the worry of oppression, or an inventor looking to create without being harassed by the less enlightened masses, then make Therid a stop on your travel itinerary. Come to Therid, home to all.

Favorite Scene: Necromancers’ Pride:
Quest for Elderstone

 

¡Hola a todos Feliz Viernes!

Hello everyone happy Friday!

Today I’d like to do something different. Today, and for the next two weeks, I want to talk about my favorite scenes from the three Necromancers’ Pride books. Today, book 1, Quest for Elderstone! Normally when you say favorite singular, it refers to one, today I have two!

“Dantin and Regar mirrored that surprise, both of whom looked in shock at the man who had suddenly appeared among them. Blood dripped down the wicked blade of his stout, black falchion. He was in armor as dark as midnight; his helm’s visor was shaped into the twisted skeletal face of death. His oblong shield, which came down to a point at its upper and lower tips, was very maneuverable. Sharp all the way around, the shield was employed as much for wide, slashing strokes as it was for defense. It was ridged and dark as the armor with a crown and thorn etched on its surface.” (205-206).

What an awesome description to introduce one of my favorite characters, Reese Pelingril. When I first read this paragraph of awesome, I remembered having the widest smile on my face knowing that another pivotal and badass character was introduced. To put to cherry on top of this sundae of writing, Reese risked his own life to save children he barely knew, thats an example of a leader. A leader who sacrifices himself for the greater good.

My second favorite scene is THE ENTIRETY OF CHAPTER ONE. Oh my goodness, this chapter set so much speculation for what is in the future for Corwyn, Wren, and Terridous. The beginning of an amazing adventure to escort the Pride. We learn details about our protagonists that define them and their characters. I already had so many questions about what is the Glass Tower, who started the mighty Osylns and who are the Lyndrinians? just to name a few. When Corwyn was- well, in case you don’t know, I don’t want to spoil anything!

What was your favorite part(s) of Quest for Elderstone? Please let me know, I’m very interested, in the comments!

Like I always say, see ya next week!
