Toy Soldier Saga

"Toy Soldier":

A derisive slang term for an elven marine.

A fantasy space opera universe, where fantasy & sci-fi races sail the stars by the seeds of cosmic trees, or their own magical ingenuity. Gunpowder fantasy in space with a military SFF element. World of Warcraft meets Master & Commander and Treasure Planet.


They say that elves were the first to make it into the stars. Through their relationship with the great cosmic Trees of Life, they learned to modify and use the Starseeds they produced to navigate space, even over vast distances. In ancient times, they formed the great Avalonian Empire, which spanned star systems.   But the goblins were probably next, and the other Known Races followed. Lacking the symbiotic relationship that the elves had developed with the Starseeds, they invented the first magical starfaring engine, called a spindizzy. They discovered that the Void wasn't quite empty. There were animals and monsters who made the stars their home, including races even more disturbing and strange...   The goblins were joined by the rest of the Fomorian races: orcs, trolls, ogres, and so on. Battles great and terrible, small and bitter, raged across Known Space as the wars of elves and orcs played out their legacy of hatred across the stars themselves. Epics would be written, songs would be sung. Eventually the Fomorians were defeated, and they retreated to an unknown corner of the universe to build anew.   In the meantime, the elves fell into their own wars, and the twin Crowns that indicated the Mandate of Avalon were lost.   Now the Avalonian Empire, an empire in name only, is a shadow of what it once was. And the Fomorians are once more ready to rise up and do battle...
