Filled with solar systems, planets, and millions of cultures, this galaxy brims with magic and life. Technology is easily accessible to most people and planetary alliances ensure that wars are few and far between. Legendary figures dwell in special places and watch over the world, with many believing them to be myths. The Tread of Darkness is my oldest and most complex story/world. I have created over a hundred characters in various time periods for this world, multiple storylines, and details about several fictional cultures. Some parts are dark and violent, some are bright and awe-inspiring, and others are simply filled with every possible emotion. This story, and its world, are my greatest pride and I hope that others will find enjoyment in it. This world is my setting for WorldEmber 2022.
