Ultimus

Ultimus

Kind, compassionate, level headed, strong, and fierce. Ultimus is the embodiment of the Centurion cause. A determined leader who is out to preserve freedom from Tyrannis’ tyranny. The Centurions are loyal to Ultimus because not only is he strong and wise but he has a father-like compassion and is willing to sacrifice himself to protect his weakest soldier. Ultimus is a thinker and while he knows he has to stop Tyrannis he doesn’t understand how the war he’s been fighting since birth started. He wonders why he’s always fighting. He wonders why he can’t enter the Beyond. He wonders if he has a purpose other then fighting Tyrannis.

The alliance with the Princesses unlocks hidden memories in Ultimus. Memories about his creation and purpose in life.

Doe Ultimus get his questions answered? Back us on Kickstarter to find out!

Gunnar

Gunnar:

“Shoot first, ask questions later” is Gunnar’s motto. With his oversized gun, “Blasto,” Gunnar is the first to volunteer for any mission so long as he gets to shoot Decimators and Hunters.

Despite his quick trigger, Gunnar is extremely loyal to the Centurion cause. He’s willing to put his life on the line for his comrades but it also makes him paranoid and suspicious of everyone who isn’t a Centurion. Given his itchy trigger finger, this leads to problems.

Will the Princesses get mistaken for a Decimator Hunter by Gunnar? Back us on Kickstarter to find out.

Clarisse

Age: Age 14

Kingdom: Castillia.

Shy but loyal, Clarisse is the perfect best friend. She’s always ready to help out her friends and is good at keeping secrets. (Especially Zara’s) Clarisse is also clever and can come up with clever solutions at a snap of the finger. Which comes in handy during a fight with giant robots. When she’s not covering for Zara, Clarisse enjoys drawing and painting.

Kingdom: Tanglewylde

Zara is a bright, spirited, thirteen-year-old girl with red hair and brown eyes. Zara is a daydreamer and go getter always leaves an impression on people with her charming but stubborn personality. Zara idolizes her ancestor Queen Kyra, who saved the five kingdoms of Harmonia during the “Days of Fire” as the last dragon rider. This, along with a desire to upstage her fellow princesses, is she journeys to the Forbidden Woods to find a baby dragon for the Midsummer Recital.

There she meets Wheeler and discovers a destiny that will make her just as important (perhaps greater) then her ancestor, Kyra.

The Skull King

Last year, my short story, The Skull King, was published by Exiles Magazine. Now, it is available for you to own as an e-book. 

Wilbert Stanton, editor of Exiles Magazine, said The Skull King was  “A refreshing and fun read. It reminded me that there are still true fantasy writers who refuse to conform to these new age fantasy archetypes that are diluting the genre.”

To order a copy for your Kindle click here. An excerpt is available after the jump. Thank you very much for your support. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it. (more…)
