For those of you who have followed SBF over the past year, you know that the Legend of the Bastard Prince is not a new idea. LBP has been a pet project of mine for over 3 years, as have some of the characters. However, the world of LBP has undergone a great deal of development over those 3 years. As a preview to what you all will be looking at over the next month, here is the summary that I have written for the NaNoWriMo website.
In a world long ago forgotten, conflict sets the stage for war when a number of high profile warriors and scholars begin to go missing in the dark forests and deep seas of New Eden, and the increasingly tyrannical High King of the continental domains orders mysterious executions of "treasonous" individuals while the winged Gaels begin "cleansing" within their own borders.
In the middle of this conflict stand the family Ink, a group of orphans and misfits of various origins and species taken in by the odd traveling artist Irvin Ink, who seem to have members in every corner of New Eden.
In this ongoing tale, set a century after the attempted takeover of New Eden by a legendary warrior, a reluctant king, a disgraced noblewoman, and an orphaned bastard must determine where their allegiances, and their hearts, lie when faced with an inconceivable truth.
