Formerly known simply as Amaranth (which is what you may simply refer to it as now if you prefer. Especially as I will do so often.), Ages of Amaranth is an upcoming sci-fi/fantasy universe that spans 9 Ages (19,440 years) of history set in a rich and immersive world. From the formation of the gods and creation of the world, to its final apocalyptic moments.. Every detail has been documented. Amaranth represents 20+ years of work by the author, Matthew J. Newton (now referred to simply as "the author"). The world of Amaranth started out as the idea for a series of novels when the author was still in middle school. Inspired heavily by various franchises and with a desire to create, the author knew he wanted to create something epic. As time went on, he began to branch out, picking up various talents and taking on new sources of inspiration. When interests began to sway towards game development, there was a sudden need for a consistent world setting and Amaranth had developed into a very rich environment. The author hadn't limited himself to just Amaranth though. As interests in various fields matured, new worlds and ideas were being conceptualized. Eventually, several of these side projects began to cross over in terms of content, and realization that these various settings could be combined into a single coherent world dawned. Amaranth began to be sewn together into a consistent story from countless pieces of lessor works. When everything fell into place, the rewrites began. Followed by periods of extensive research and additional writing. No subjects were scoffed at, and the diverse nature of the world began to take shape. The author knew every detail from atmospheric conditions, planetary orbits, and the genetics of various creatures around the world. The story of Amaranth would face an onslaught of complete rewrites over the last few years, ranging from trivial details, to the abandonment of science over mysticism. One of the features of Amaranth that will distinguish it from other worlds and franchises, is the extensive period of historical events that have been detailed. Knowing that a time might come when the author was unable to continue maintaining creative control over the work, he decided that everything should be documented from the beginning to the end. Doing this, would prevent any bastardizations of the work by a third party that merely wished to exploit it for profit or didn't understand its special qualities. It would also serve as a key for others to continue to create future canon works after the author was unable. Ages Of Amaranth (Copyright © 2018 by Matthew J.
