Massive Author's Notes
I'm pretty sure there's some sort of rule against 'Author's notes' taking up whole chapters but this is vitally important.
It's been a long time coming but I think – I know – I've finally got my rhythm back in my story writing. And so that can only mean one thing.
I've started writing Dragon Lord Legends again.
There have been some massive PC screw-ups in this house recently so I've been unable to work as quickly as I would like. However, I've managed to totally go through every single chapter in this original story and have finally managed to sort out some of the bugs and iron out some of the creases.
Most importantly, the name of the main character and the names of the countries have changed, mainly because I felt that, for one, naming the main character after myself is the best way to put people off and also it just doesn't feel right any more and for two, I felt having the countries all ending the same way just seemed to take some of the adult-ness away from the story. I don't know, I just wasn't happy with the 'iums' at the end, constantly.
To save people the hassle of rereading merely to find the name changes, I've listed them here for your benefit, Naturally, if you would like to reread and leave more reviews, far be it from me to stop you. Most of the names have been taken from my new and thus far unsuccessful story – Ageless Divine. I'll probably change the names in that story when I go back onto it. For now, it's on the backburner so I can concentrate on this story alone.
The original names are on the left, new names on the right.
Ben – Ryn
Tebili – Rothard
Larium – Elaria (Elarians)
Kallium – Jormana (Jormanans)
Arium – Cathuria (Cathurians)
Illariam – Holmor (Holmorians)
Marium – Yrellan (Yrellans)
Ci Larium – Cilarium
Greaint – Janbourne
The Youthcutters – The Farmhands
Anything not mentioned in that list has not changed. This might be confusing at first but I prefer it this way. Rather correct it now and carry on than finish everything and then correct it. I appreciate that some people might find this initially awkward but please bear with me.
This editing has applied to both Dragon Lord Legends and Beginning of Armageddon and it is being edited as you read, probably. I apologise for any inconvenience
A new chapter of Beginning of Armageddon will be up shortly. If there are any questions, feel free to email me or drop me a review and I'll try to clear things up as best I can.
I thank you all for your patience and understanding
