It is not easy to be born into nobility. Just ask Crispin Claxis, grandson of the Grand Magus Prespertin Claxis of the Clan Claxis. Dealing with all the trappings and responsibilities that are inherent in the lifestyles of the ruling elite are difficult enough. Royal galas, grand balls and noble hunting forays can tax the constitution of even the hardiest noble, add to that being the grandson of a national hero and the social commitments become endless. Crispin was fully prepared to deal with a life spent coping with the rigors of high-class parties and events. Along with avoiding any semblance of work or responsibility, looking down on the lower classes was what he did best. That was, of course, until he was discovered to have a Life Spark of the Magics. Furthermore, that Spark extended to the Strand of Necromancy.
As a neophyte of the Necromancers, his life has now been turned upside down as all the luxury and comfort he has known all his life has been exchanged for dedication to the School of the Soul. It is a dedication he never wanted, and one he can hardly believe he must now endure. With his noble existence traded away for the coarse robes of the Necromancers, his outlook on life is grim indeed. To make matters worse – if that were even possible – the accompaniment of a lower class, wise-mouthed commoner who hardly knows her place has him wishing he were never born. What secrets does this spoiled noble conceal? How can this seemingly inept, useless brat change the course of events in a world headed for war?

Hi guys! I have been thinking that, well, what would happen if all those Necromancers’ Pride characters were real people?
Like all books made into movies, you have to have an actor or actress that fits and looks the role. We already have cartoon and realism drawings of them, what about real life?
I’ve been thinking about that, and here is my first choice for one of the starring roles.
Grace is a beautiful and talented actress, and not only with her blue eyes, would make a great personality for Velladriana.
I know this will definitely be a movie one day, so I chose a few actors and actresses that I like and more that I didn’t know! I just think that most are fantastic for the roles, look it, and I would love to meet the cast (maybe help direct… )! More actors, actresses, and all sorts of great stuff coming soon!
Orphaned at a young age, Dolthaia and her sister grew up on the unforgiving streets of the Canodrian capitol city of Medlin. Gifted with a quick wit, a penchant for getting out of trouble (most of which she initiated) and lightning fast reflexes, she became a very able and effective pickpocket. She and her sister scraped together as meager an existence as they could until her sister was kidnaped and taken from her. Distraught and without hope, Dolthaia thought her life over until it was discovered that she had a Spark of the Magics in the Strand of Necromancy.
Accepting the offer of training proposed by the Necromancers (though, in truth, the Necromancers never offer – they order), she embarked down the path of magical study as a Necromantic neophyte. Joined by a spoiled noble, she now finds herself embroiled in the greatest fight the Known Kingdoms have ever experienced, with the very fate of mankind held in the balance. Will her Necromantic skills keep her safe in the war to come? How will her presence influence events surrounding the Pride?

If I were to create a martial arts system in the Known Kingdoms, this would be my take on it. As a huge fan of the world of Necromancers’ Pride, I just love imagining what the world might be like. I hope you enjoy my imaginary take on the world!
On the contrary to love and compassion, we have my perception of an anthological martial arts form in the Known Kingdoms. Gze Kunan Dei, or “Way of Energy”.
Gze Kunan Dei’s origins come from the elite military of Canodria, the Canodrian Red Cougars. From training day one to academy graduation, soldiers learn deadly techniques and the fundamentals of Gze Kunan Dei. The focus of Gze Kunan Dei uses the opponent’s energies and weight to their advantage. From something as simple as a punch or a takedown from the ground, Gze Kunan Dei has a technique for that specific purpose. In the real world, some may identify Gze Kunan Dei as modern day Krav Maga (Israeli Martial Arts).
The Red Cougars train exhaustively to their mental and physical “breaking point” to continue the fight no matter what the circumstances. They would much rather swing their lifeless arm at their foe before giving up. Their training establishes a prudent sense of awareness outside the battlefield. But on the battlefield, these soldiers will show no mercy.
During the ongoing abeyant conflict of Canodria – Medoic, Red Cougars train anxiously to get onto the battlefield and defeat their foe. King Tharster of Medoic knows about the Red Cougars’ training and is willing to accept the challenge. Medoic’s elite fighting force is training too. Its just a matter of time before the two armies clash.
Join me next week when we cover the fighting style of Medoic’s elite fighting force, the “Kings Guard”.
The Strand of the Magics known as the Battle Magi is broken down into two distinct sects: the Warrior Conjurors – those Magi gifted with the ability to evoke powerful spells of destructive force, and the Weapon Masters – those Magi whose powers lie in the enchantment and creation of weapons. Though the Weapon Masters cannot wield the devastating spells of the Warrior Conjurors, they are of equal importance due to the magical enchantments they can cast on weapons. Indeed, since so few of either sect of Battle Magi now exist in the Known Kingdoms, they are highly prized and sought after by every ruling faction in the lands.
Of the latter sect, there is no more skilled practitioner than Remus. His abilities to forge magical weapons, like his mighty war hammer, and enchant non-magical weapons of exemplary make are without equal. Feeling most at home designing and building weapons, gadgets and armor of the highest magical caliber, he tends to shun the company of others. He is far more comfortable with objects that are forged than with beings that are birthed. His acerbic attitude and generally foul disposition belie the loyalty and heart of a lion. He will give his life without question for those he deems worthy. Will his skills at forging weapons be enough to keep the Pride safe? Can his unique and mighty inventions turn the tide of battle against the growing armada of darkness that threatens to rip the world apart?
