Eskǎvaëís is set in a galaxy far away from the Milky Way Galaxy. Although this world seems common to most fantasy and dark paranormal settings, this world strives for a universe written to evoke a sense of wonder and curiosity. Eskǎvaëís' is designed to be the outline of the world that The Bound Series
, a book series written by me, is set in. If you are a reader of either genre, you'll feel right at home in the foundation of what the setting is built upon.
On Eskǎvaëís, there is a continent named Chymoús that is filled with grim hope and utter darkness from a devastating war. (Okay, so they have sunlight, but metaphorically, darkness looms around every nook and cranny.) The other continents are just as foreboding, with rumors that the Vavheia, the Dark is plotting her revenge against Bavara, the Moon. If anything, all the species of the world are struggling to survive a world with vampires
at their fingertips. Chaos and destruction are all everyone has ever known.
A War for the Ages
Have you ever wondered if vampires owned werewolves
as Exotic Pets? Well, that's how the continent of Chymoús came to be ravaged by a 500+ year war caused by the insane emperor of the Itude Empire
, all while his heir turns out to be mated
to an Alpha Heir, in which they are fated by a prophecy to possibly end the said war.
Sounds complicated, right?
Yet, the war still rages on with each country on Chymoús struggling to remain afloat.
The Arrival of the War
Tilelt 2nd, 1492 EoL
That was the day that the War on Chymoús sprang into action. Emperor Vladimir Tepes
witnessed the horrific death of his beloved wife, Empress Sin-Yeona Cheonsa
The death of Empress Sin-yeona was felt over the entirety of the empire and on Sroqo 25th
of 1492 EoL, Vlad declareed war upon the Moonlight Expanse
, who decried the assassination of Sin-yeona. Vlad refused to back down, pushing his people further into the Moonlight Expanse's territory to destroy the wolf packs. This, in turn, brought the Phoenix Sun
, Flight Academy
, Sorrel Kingdom
, and Conjura
to aid the Moonlight Expanse.
Hundreds of years went by with war threatening to tear the continent in half. And while Emperor Vlad did not back down, the forboding presence of the prophecies began to enact their vengeance upon those who dared to incite the honor of slaughtering millions.
The Many Sides
What once started as a place created for harmony and luxury became the center for warfare and technology. Everything steampunk and magickal can be found spread out from the stormy swamps down to the flowering beauties of the meadows. Regardless of location, the fact that steampunk technology resides in the largest country on the continent remains the pinnacle point of the empire.
Made up of five werewolf packs
, the Moonlight Expanse denounces all accusations the Itude Empire casts upon them. Each pack resides in an area that fits their pack name, such as the BDP being in a desert made of blue sand, where the weather is always
freezing. The expanse relies heavily on magick, and the use of technology is mostly outlawed due to conflicts that technology brings with magick.
Built upon the floating islands between Chymoús and Shálmâne
, the Flight Academy is structured to deal with dangerous storms and avoid most of the dangerous outcomes of the war. However, they are an air force grade people who specialize in warfare and aren't afraid to get their hands dirty.
Shapeshifter druids hover in the northwestern part of Chymoús, where they collectively offer support for the Moonlight Expanse while keeping to themselves. Dense jungles and mountains make for rough terrain and maintain a barrier that the Itude Empire has yet to break through.
Ever think of swimming in the bays or the oceans surrounding Chymoús? You better be careful as the merfolk and sirens that live the waters are very protective and open to taking you captive if you prove to be a threat. However, the Sorrel Kingdom is full of underwater adventures and shipwrecks galore.
On a small island located to the southwest of Chymoús, the phoenixes worship their goddess, Noelle, the Sun. They aren't too comfortable with violence and would gladly stick to farming and trading for their delectable taste for horse meat, but they are a vicious enemy to have when angered. Dragons
even fear these majestic creatures and their island.
