Trust Levels: What are they and how do they work



The Vangen have served the Contanis Empire faithfully for nearly three centuries. Hand picked from foreign lands, men of the Vangen hold no political ties, agendas or creeds except to the Emperors and Empresses who sit upon the Onyx Throne. They are vanguards, protectors, loyalists.

They are the Vangen Royal Guard.

As the officers of the Vangen lay siege to the lands of the Oriens, a letter is received bearing the seal of the Empress. Contained within are orders that are as simple as they are direct. Take the hill and return home. As to why, the Empress does not say, but with their loyalty bound to those who sit upon the Onyx Throne, the decree leaves nothing for debate.

What trouble then has stirred within the Capital that leaves her orders so vague? As more becomes clear with time, loyalties are questioned and a black tide turns. Will the Vangen stand to fight another day or fall forgotten to history?

Tales of the Inglorious Brotherhood

Volume 1, Episode 1 NOW COMPLETE!

The king is dead. And those that did it are literally getting away with murder. Thanks in part to framing two innocent men: one a former and trusted general of the late King, and the other his naive, not-so-worldly son, the prince.

Together, they must join forces to track down those who actually did the foul deed, bring them to justice, and clear both their names. But, as with all things that sound so simple, they rarely, if ever, are.

When a former associate of the general turns up, making an offer they can’t refuse, these two mismatched companions are sent down a path to new adventures that neither of them ever asked to be a part of. And in the process, they will give rise to a new legend: the legend of The Inglorious Brotherhood.

Engulfed by Aries (Fallen Star #1)

Chaos was the creator of all and ruler of nothing. Over the next several millennium, it watched its descendants enjoy life’s luxuries while it dwelled within the heart of oblivion. Its envy and rage grew, leading it to seek solace in the heart of the ruler of the in-between realm, Erebus. It hoped to make the other deities and the mortals pay for forcing it to live a life of obscurity.

When Erebus and the Goddess of the Stars, Asteria, meet, they end up falling in love, which leads to the creation of the thirteen strongest constellations in the world, the Zodiac. Their love sealed the mortals’ fate, for each Zodiac embodied an important mortal value. The Dark Lord’s thirst for power has overtaken Erebus’ body and corrupted the Zodiac, thrusting the mortal world into a colorless dystopia.

“Engulfed by Aries” focuses on teenage blacksmith apprentice, Hestia Castellanos, as she struggles with her duty to corrupt Aries and her looming father, and her unrecognizable feelings for comrade, Alastair Romanos. Can she regain the courage to stand up to Aries and free her people? Or will she give up everything, including her one chance of happiness with Alastair?

<<In the year of 2808, earth’s continents have become fragmented in which each country is now ruled by one of the thirteen Celestial Deities, also known as the Zodiac. The world has evolved for the worst as humans are plunged into a state of anarchy, fear, and disillusion. No one is safe from what was deemed to be the mythical, not even the children.

On Hestia’s thirteenth birthday, she is chosen, along with her childhood friend, Alastair, to move to Redwater and become an apprentice to the hardened blacksmith Master Haemon. She has all but one goal: to create a weapon worthy enough for Celestial Deity Aries to wield against her most hated sibling, Celestial Deity Libra.

With Libra and her subjects, the Concordeans, moving in on the borders of the Isles of Aithne, Hestia decides to join Aithne’s army, the Pyrkagía, despite Alastair’s vehement disapproval. In a place where love is forbidden and feared, Hestia has to choose to fight for what she wants or to let it perish into oblivion.>>

:black_small_square:Previously named DESTINED
:black_small_square: Xaeleaxus’ Fate Saga • Book 1 •

Xaeleaxus was a realm that was damaged beyond repair.
A Curse, a Prophecy,
And a long line of Legacies.

Have you ever thought about waking one day and realizing that everything, starting from your life to identity was nothing but a huge pile of lies covering up a dangerous truth?
Neither did Luna.

Luna Sienna was unlike any other average nineteen-year-old girl.

Except, one day she woke up to having nothing at all and ended up in a place she had never been and never even heard about before, a place that was darker than it looked, and had a history of ruin, chaos, death and ultimate darkness at every step of life. Kingdoms were born, ruined and slaughtered, even relations by blood were poisoned.

Many said that this girl might be the salvation and her destiny was to cure them but only a few know that it wasn’t ‘the destiny’ that held the ace anymore and hers was bound to a prophecy, a prophecy that was the result of a fight among the strongest, a betrayal from a loved one and death of an unborn, that was still hidden beneath the history of Xaeleaxus.

Embark on the journey with Luna to find what this unknown prophecy holds and find the person that does not want to be found, Valfred Prowler, her father.

Tragically mutilated and stained by the blood of his loved ones Lucius Cromwell, a naïve child of high society strikes a deal with a devil to get his life back, blissfully ignorant that he’ll consequently find his sanity on the line.

Dejected and out of options Lucius Cromwell is approached by a demon claiming to be his salvation, that is, if he agrees to make a deal with it. At first it seemed too good to be true. A simple trade of his soul in exchange for power, but Lucius had no idea how much more there was to it.

Constantly tormented by his inner voice and manipulated to do the demon’s bidding, Lucius finds his life thrown into a pandemonium of murder, loss and coping with his slowly fading sanity all while realizing the insignificance of a lifetime of power compared to an eternity of suffering.

Snippet: Those golden eyes, like pools of honey, melted over him a weakness he quickly shook off. The flutters in his chest began to irritate and gnaw at the feelings he kept gated, beckoning him this was a better time than any. With the uncertainty of a deal with the devil, his alliance with Aeg, and his acquaintance with the King, Cabil wanted to have something he was sure of. But the possibility of rejection kept him on edge, and he battled back and forth with the idea of declaration.

Suddenly everyone around him fell to a mute, their shuffling drawn to a pause. The world around him froze as the pit in his stomach grew wider with every step across the bridge. She began to speak words, words that filtered through his cluttered mind: through one ear, and out the other. Racking up enough courage to confide in her was in essence the most challenging venture Cabil would trek. And as he took in a breath, he finally addressed her, “Sy. I’ve had something I wanted to tell you for a while now, and—just, really haven’t found the right time to say it.”

The Wizard

The path of good or path of evil are options for becoming the most powerful wizard in the universe. When the Grand Master is killed by his apprentice, it’s up to his youngest pupil to find a way to restore the balance of nature.

In this hardcore high fantasy adventure, the wizard joins a gnome tinkerer, a frankensteined ogre, and an elfish rouge to go after a megalomaniacal necromancer with more than a dragon up his sleeve. Will they choose righteousness or revenge?

Born a fatherless bastard, Nox ZaiWin has always been seen as a pariah by those around him. It doesn’t matter how hard he has tried to make a name for himself, excelling both in combat and military strategy, climbing all the way to his present position as Calzai by sheer hard work and persistence.
His only goal? To be left alone so he can govern over his poor, ravaged Province in peace.
And so, yeah, the last thing he wanted, was to become some Celestial’s Chosen One.

And is that even a Celestial? Hasn’t the brat just murdered more than one-hundred of his men with a single scream? Aren’t Celestials supposed to be holly, pure beings, that abhor all forms of death and killing?
No other choice! No matter how sinful it may be, the brat must die.

Snow has lived most of his life locked in a dark room, explored and sold for his miraculous blood. There are a lot of things he does not understand about the outside world. But one thing is certain. He does not want to have anything to do with some scary dark monster. He wants to be free! And he’ll do whatever it takes to reach his goal.

And yet … Shit! Aren’t they stuck together now? Their life-lines intertwined?

Wait! If the dark monster wants him dead, that’s easy enough to solve. All he has to do is to successfully kill him first!
