Been a while…

… but Phase III is being built on the pillars of making everything perfect for one last smackeroo at Indiegogo and this crowdfunding thing.

But before I go ahead and jump start the page with ideas that I have, which I have a habit of doing, I would like to just say one thing.
I’ve got a thought that I want to share.

Still here?

Nice.

I’ve made it as short as I could.

This should be a fun thing to think about.

 The word hero comes from the Greek ἥρως (hērōs), “hero, warrior.” When Religious texts were written, these heroes live on to become “Warriors of Religion,” “Legends,”  “Prophets,” or “sons of Gods,” as in Emmanuel (Jesus Christ) or Herakles (Hercules). 
And then, because those stories were loaded with depictions of fantastic hērōs, they were revered, and forever remembered. From dictation to text, they became religion.
Then, yes, I’m going to go there:
There are similar stories, that have already spanned a few generations on this planet. The stories of Marvel and DC; having comic books and cartoons, movies and series, merchandising and well placed adds; reach back almost 100 years, and teach us the values of intricate worlds with impossible heroes, facing insurmountable odds. 
In these ways, the fictional characters are also always remembered, in the same way, with the same name, heroes.
However, Religion is bound to its heroes. Jesus, Muhammed, Achilles, Vishnu and Krishna, and all and the too many Gods and Saints to name; were always held in high regard, and its Storytellers and representatives achieved royalty through suffering, for hundreds of years. 

And some of you might have already noticed this point, so I’ll get down to it.

I have never heard about two people, who were from different fandoms, blowing themselves up for Iron Man, or Jean Grey, or Carl, or The Doctor. I’ve seen heated discussions, about who would win in a bout between Superman and Goku, more times than I’d like to count, but nobody has ever gone to war over it.

And so, I would like to state, from my perspective:

Religious Superhero Fandoms could take a hint from all the people who enjoy and learn from more than one story.
You all could just stop fighting over who would win.
(Come to a Comic Convention and check out the art, it’s nice!)
This may come as a bit direct, but your story of God is no better than the creation of the universe by Marvel’s account.
A somewhat similar situation had Reed Richards and an alien from the future traveling to the beginnings of the universe… More

 

I think Goku and Superman would be buddies.

Messiahs, too.

And to anyone who is fighting for their “one religion,” there are people here who have defended their heroes’ stories through thick and thin, in the greatest conflict that might spark hatred into people’s hearts and make anyone go to war. The debate about the battle between Wolverine and The Hulk is, in the Marvel Fandom, equivalent to The Six Day War, except that nobody had to be slaughtered and pulled out of their homes, so that Fandom Fanatics could have their way.

So, do you see how silly it is, to kill for Heroes?

Did you check the links?

Good.

You didn’t?

Go back. Worth it.

(Waiting for you to check…)

Of course, that DID get way out of hand didn’t it.

And we’re not done there. It’s coming…

Chillin in the Ukraine?

TheForgottenAgeTrilogy.com has seen quite a recent peak in its views per day, and this week, it seems to be the Ukraine that has won the gambit! Who will it be next week? Russia? Argentina?

Chillin in the Ukraine.png

Please note that it is not wise to look at numbers, just wanted to shout out to the Ukraine!

Please note: Go Ukraine!

Please note that we mean no offense to Russia.

Please also note that all borders between countries are just there because someone said that you can “own” land. Nationalism is a funny thing when you come down to it, right?

Imagine that conversation.

-Hey, food comes out of the ground!
°So, who gets the food?
-The guy who owns the ground!
And that’s how wars started.

Then, there was another guy that was face-palming as he saw that happen.

REMEMBER THAT FRIDAY IS APRIL FOOL’S DAY
Let the practical jokes begin…

INDIEGOGO Weekly Update Number Eighteen: END OF PHASE II

Before we get started on Phase III, I would like to thank our only sponsor of Phase II: me! But that’s ok, I’ve been a bit too busy to give back to you guys, so I’m going to be having a giveaway!

Share #TFAResolution to win free copies of both books!

Now that that is over, here are the changes for Phase III. I’ve added some extra goodies, which will need pictures and all next week, when Phase III starts, but here you go!

Full Resolution Here: LINK

PHASE 2 TO PHASE 3.png

Phase III will start next week, have a great weekend, all!

And remember to share the #TfaResolution to win free copies of both books!

INDIEGOGO Weekly Update Number Seventeen

More Concept Art and 1 More Week of Phase II!

My condolences to all of the people that suffered hardship today in Belgium, I hope that peace can someday be realized by all people, instead of this warmongering and hatred.

To those who wish to take down the culprits, do not seek revenge:or you will be fooled into the dark path as well. Let’s all come together for peace, not bloodshed. Just my two cents on the matter.

On the other hand, epic things are afoot! I’ve been playing around with some concepts, and I’d love to know what you guys think!

Here is the picture from last week, scaled down:

Version Three (Holy Shit) copy.png

And after some tinkering with the design, I wanted to do a spread like this:

Version Three Full (Holy Shit).png
Access the Full Resolution HERE

Here are two (out of the dozen) that I have made as other concepts.

Version Two copy.png
Access the Full Resolution HERE

 

Version One copy.png
Access the Full Resolution HERE

 

These, I think, are good for showing the change of art between pages, which is what I’m looking for. I might ask many artists to make one drawing, a project that I might be looking into soon. Watch out for that! A portion of Phase 3 will be competitions!

But some of the products that have been available for the first two Phases will be “phased out”.The list of changes will be out later this week! (I have the flu! Greaat! :p)

Soon, everyone will be able to hear the voice of Z…

Watch out Audible.com, I’m coming for you!

 

 

 

INDIEGOGO Weekly Update Number 16 (TSC Literary Comic Concept Art Unveiling!)

I have been brainstorming about how we are going to move forward with the artwork for The Seisoa Chronicles literary comic, for the first ten episodes and boy has it been tough!
After trying different themes, fiddling about in Photoshop Elements again and again, I think I have hit the spot!
Here is an example of what I think a page should look like!

Version Three (Holy Shit).png

Looks hella-good, right? I just need an artist to create the rest of the pages, each pertaining to the subject of the text. Keep a lookout for artists you love, that could take on this massive undertaking, and feel free to share this everywhere!

We will be ordering the books from Kablam! Digital Printing, to make REAL COMIC BOOKS! However, without an artist, I would only make it look terrible. I will be sending invites soon to different artists, but if anyone has any ideas or suggestions, feel free to post them on the website, the Facebook page, Twitter, or down below!

As for the rest of the week, I’ve been rereading Resolution, and practicing for a special climax for PHASE III of the Indiegogo Project! It’s going to be juicy…

Remember, Phase II products will only be available for a limited time! You still have two weeks to join in, before the items in the perks are changed!

Thanks for your attention, and let’s Change the Future!

INDIEGOGO Weekly Update Number Foorteen

The fourteenth week of the TFA Indiegogo fundraiser has been a productive one, even though, until Phase III, I will not be able to make the Seisoa Chronicles, but that gives time for everyone of the sponsors abd UC members to catch up! Some fun things that we’ve been doing this week:

-Editing RESOLUTION for the last time, and when that print is mademad be sure that there will be a video ready for its presentation!

-I’ve been doing some more research concerning the Universal Conclave, including the Petrodollar, Palestine, and the big oil companies. It’s a challenge to discern the fact from fiction, and so it does take quite a bit of study.

-Once Resolution is finished, I have made a deal with some marketing companies; to send them all a summary of the first and second books.

-We have decided on a new paint job for the Statuettes, and pictures will be up, when humanly possible!

-The Seisoa Chronicles: Episodes 1-10 will be available as a “literary comic” at FACTS! Currently working on a design for the idea of how a “literary comic” should look.

-Being social and responsible is thrilling, but exhausting! Caught up on some sleep! Might as well mention it, I do work myself to death for not only my dream, but those I love: from family to bros to sistahs to milady. Hero style.

And so, keep a lookout for the new updates, take care out there on the road to awesomeness, and always remember that you are you, and there’s only one chance: today.

Laters! Off to hang with the webmaster: Nayoh! (Cause we homies :p)

Indiegogo Weekly Update XIII

Oohh yeaaah! Some of my best work! *Cough*

HERE is another link to the Indiegogo Project!
Here we are at week 13 of the crowdfunding project for The Forgotten Age Trilogy!

I know that some of you have been waiting for episode 10 of The Seisoa Chronicles, so here is an excerpt!


It seemed that there was no end to the dark mage’s fury. Even though he was only a representative; a pawn of the Priests in their eyes, he thought his own will to be absolute.
As the others gossiped about what was right, and what was wrong, he tapped his foot impatiently. It was the only way to make use of his time. There was no question to his leadership, nor his belief that he alone was the dominant force in Menak.
The mage knew full well that the odds were, however, not in his favor. And so, he stepped into the middle of the room, between the conjurer and the mages, ultimately putting a halt to their conversation; sentencing them to silence.
“I am glad that you think that there is so much debate about who hurts who and who does what, but let me ask you this: does it matter?”
The others gawked; the Priests, disappointed in their fellow mage’s speech, and the rebels; ready to defend themselves, if necessary.


 

Thank you all for being patient! The marketing is proceeding as follows:

– I have contacted “Smith Publicity,” as well as other agencies in Los Angeles, in preparation for some kind of big release in the states! They seem to have multiple deals for independently published authors, so next week, we’ll see what they’ve got to offer!

The Seisoa Chronicles, episodes 1-10, will be available for reading at the spring edition of FACTS, here in Belgium, so come over and try to find me! And bring your Bluetooth, or I can give you the download link there! It’s in 42 Days xD LINK!

– Now that the first portion of the story has ended, I’ll be taking a break from writing the series, and start my last read of RESOLUTION before I send it off to the editors (at the end of the fundraiser.)

-While I am rereading Resolution, I have an expansion for Soulfire in the works! This is going to be awesome!

– Furthermore, with the extra time I have, I will be gathering more and more sponsors by hand, and hopefully finding a place for my handwritten Journals, so that one lucky person can hold on to my life’s work.

– There will be a meeting, in around six months, for the UNIVERSAL CONCLAVE! I will have to expand on this later, but make our voices heard, and don’t forget to make your profile!

See ya’ll next week!

INDIEGOGO WEEKLY UPDATE XII

The twelfth update for the Indiegogo Project for The Forgotten Age Trilogy is here!

And what a few weeks this has been. Working consistently is difficult, especially whilst trying to keep up with beloved family, the greatest of friends, and the job that I need at the moment, so I can continue to bring you all some new material!
It’s tough living a double life, I actually overslept on Wednesday, and was FIVE HOURS late for work. Fun stuff :/

For the last two weeks, I have been working on a video for everyone, which has been posted, almost everywhere! Check it…

Here’s the Mission Statement of The Universal Conclave, including my own vision of how we can put our thoughts together and try to find out what is best; not for a city, not for a country, not for a union, but for this whole planet

 

What do you think?

The Seisoa Chronicles will continue next week, with the tenth episode in the series! Diplomacy will decide who lives, and who dies..

See ya guys soon, and don’t forget to go to Indiegogo, and help us out! even just 5 Euros sponsorship gets you access to the weekly series of The Seisoa Chronicles! (By me, the Z!)

 

See you all next week!
