Favorite Character Moments

By Eugena On June 18th, 2013

Hello out there, Readers and Fans.

I’ve been a very long hiatus from both blogging and writing, well fiction writing that is.  I thought I’d return with a few of my favorite moments.  My favorite comedic one has to be my very short spoof, A Modern Medieval (Picture Perfect).  I laugh every time I read that over, even though I know what’s coming.  As for The Age of Merrik: The Anointing, which I know some of you are familiar with, here’s a list warning: spoilers.

The Age of Merrik: Perspective from 2007

By Eugena On February 11th, 2011

An old blog post from 2007. Reposted.

For those of you who have read previous versions of The Age of Merrik–which officially reached back as far as 2000–you will be pleased to know that Cle’an plays a more important part. The sword masters (mildly referred to in the 2000 version) have a much fleshed out history and are truly legendary.

Zaedrif’s role has changed throughout the versions. Beginning in the 2005 version, Zaedrif is hailed as the great Prince and Sword Master of Nemea–a land further explained in this final version.

Working on the screenplay adaptation helped me to develop Zibiah, Zaedrif’s sister, and Cle’an’s admiration of Eleya.

The most recent change to the series is the place and function of “The Journey”. It is a place between the mind of the present and the mind of the future where only sword masters may go. Eleya’s position as the Sword Master Regina has become more important and will be more so in Rise of the New Masters.

Name Formatting in The Age of Merrik

By Eugena On February 11th, 2011

In The Anointing, “Zaedrif” and others are spelled with a joined “ae.”  Beldare is “Beldare'” and Serafin has an accent over the “i”.  Although these will be kept in the novels, for ease of accessibility use, my websites, including the wikis will not include these spellings.  Characters will be listed in their simplified letter form.

“Sword Masters” are used in The Anointing and The Screenplay Adaptation.  Other works list them as “Swordmasters”.
