So, I’m going to try this again because I’m confident that the trolls will find someone or something else to obsess over eventually. In the meantime, I know there are many of you who are actually interested in this thread for its intended purpose: beta testing my Magician’s series.
Progress on Chapter One of Enigma is going along steadily, and I anticipate posting the demo within the next week or so. It has a tone that hasn’t really been seen in the series yet: one that’s dark and depressing. It will mostly have to do with the funerals for Theyo and Mowbow, and it will also start to touch on some of the things to come, such as Zaleth hibernating, Kihbok still being at large, and the large role that Melithar will have to play in the subsequent chapters.
Although Enigma will still not have nearly as urgent of a plot as some of my other works, like MMM or NNN, it will have a significantly different feel than TMB. Whereas the first installment was primarily a slice of life, this sequel will deal with recovering after the demon attack; training extensively with Melithar, and finally journeying to the king’s castle and recruiting powerful allies along the way.
There will be more romance, new villains, and new dynamics with the characters you’ve already met so far. I’m pretty excited to get back into this series after only picking away at it here and there since I submitted TMB for the CoG contest. My biggest goal with Enigma is to address many of the issues people had with the first installment, and bring the quality of the story up to the standard that I’ve created with many of my WIPs.
