A Realm Divided Preview
Introduction: Hello all! Time for a some what long winded journal entry on my newest huge story arc called, A Realm Divided. Before I get into anything I just want to thank my readers for their...views and comments on Chronicles of Justicar, it was with your support that got me to produce content at a much faster rate. So thank you. I will have some spoilers for the next story arc so if you wish to remain oblivious of what's in store then please run of the room screaming so you do not have to be spoiled.
[Here beSpoilers beyond yee point!]
Plot;as you might have guessed it A Realm Divided will be following the actions of the elite team called the Black Stars each of them hand picked for their talents and skills. Now since I did not want to go the way of Dragon Ball Z and have the next villain be far more powerful than the one previously causing a never ending cycle of training montages, not to mention how the hell do you top a fallen god?
So for the first part of the new story arc the Black Stars will be fighting against the newly formed Crimson Separatist Alliance led by General Grey who have taken over the outer colonies of VALOR and will stop at nothing to destroy the same government that had left them to die when the military had to pull out to reallocate resources to the more important inner worlds. As the borderline civil war continues the mighty Draconian Kingdom led by the Queen Matriarch Natyria has taken the opportunity to seize VALOR territory for her own people causing the loose peace pact between the two factions to become a cold war.
Now of course if you thought the Void God's servants from Chronicles of the Justicar (That we all love so much!) were defeated when Dark Spire was destroyed then you couldn't have been anymore more wrong. With the defeat of Pandemonium the leader of the Apocalypse Cult, The Shadow Prophet, has ordered his powerful servants of the Dark Council to launch their campaign of revenge to retaliate against those that had killed their god.
A Realm Divided is defiantly going to be much darker than Chronicles of the Justicar as the head villain this time around does not care about manipulating and toying with his enemies, the Shadow Prophet will go full out to make sure those that do not follow the Void God's ways will perish.
Captain Wintro Highcastle
Leader of the Black Star team and a veteran of countless campaigns Wintro Highcastle is the best of the best the VALOR military had to offer in a soldier; fierce, independent, and most of all deadly. Jealous that Arjun Fiaz was picked to be the Justicar instead of him, Wintro's achievements and victories were always overshadowed by that of the Justicar and has became very resentful of it.
Sergeant Var'Setta Sharp Tail

General Grey formed the C.S.A to bring down the corrupt government that had betrayed their own people.
First Agent Tan'Gar Blood Scale

Tan'Gar carries out the most important of missions for General Grey by only himself and armed with the most advance technology he could get his hands on, although he could never bring himself to harm his lover he would have no problem killing the rest of the Black Star team with extreme force.

Although not as physically strong as Gortax or magically attuned as Khraven she maintains her position on the Dark Council with her word alone.
Shadow Master Malero Alterus
The sinister doctor is back in A Realm Divided. Malero, even though cut in half the doctor had warped his body so much that he himself could have been classified as one of his own cult monster creations.

The only true family Althea Hearth had ever had growing up, Stross was also the most advance android ever built by VALOR for domestic use. With the task of being the head butler of the Harth family it was his job not only to manage his organic workers but also take the responsibility of raising the only child of the Harth family and their adoptive son.

The oldest and most powerful Draconian is Natyria. The ancient being has been the first and still the current ruler for her entire people by making use of her powerful magic to keep herself alive for so long.

A highly advance society that is govern under martial law. The VALOR government is known for its powerful military and the men and women that go into service giving one of the youngest factions in the realm a massive reputation off being able to stand against all the ancient races that have out lived the faction ten times over.
Crimson Separatist Alliance
After the defeat of the Void God the outer colonies were left to fend for them selves when VALOR had pulled their resources to reallocate them to far more important worlds such as military outposts and factory worlds. This of course left a massive civilian population left on their own. Several colonies that were abandoned came together to defend themselves against slavers and pirate attacks and in a few short years most of the colonies along with several less extreme pirate groups banded together to form the C.S.A to get revenge on their evil government.
One of the largest super powers in the realm of mortality the Draconian Kingdom is made up of hundreds of thousands of different clans that all have pledged undying loyalty to the Queen Matriarch. Made up of many sub species of dragons and lizard folk these fierce reptilian creatures have a zero tolerance of technology believing that anything but magic will corrupt any living thing making them have a very strong tension against VALOR.
Followers of Elder

Order of the Apocalypse
A fanatical religious group that worships Void God Pandemonium the Guardian of Death who are led by the Dark Council that takes their orders directly from the Shadow Prophet. The cult makes use of its strong ties to blood and necromancy magic to fuel their never-ending numbers of horrific creations. The Apocalypse Cult will stop at nothing until every man; women, and child from all living races have been enslaved to the Shadow Prophet's will.
The oldest known race in the realm of mortality the Ghoul Empire spanned countless universes and billons of star systems. It was them that allowed the infinite to gain a foothold as they underestimated the intelligence causing a massive war to break out between them and the Void God's limitless army. The ending result in the interstellar conflict led the ghoul race to the brink of extinction where they fled into the deepest reaches of space before returning back when the Void God was defeated at the hands of the Justicar.

After the defeat of the Infinite the elemental leaders banded together after centuries of enslavement to the Guardian of Death, Void God Pandemonium. The Primordial Coalition seeks to hunt down and kill every last taint the infinite had brought into their realm and to reclaim their lost heritage.
Although I wish I could just use amazing flash skill I don't have and put in music from 'Two Steps from Hell' and make the best trailer I can for A Realm Divided but I can't. Nor can I just go page to page of all the awesome plot points I have planned but all I can say is that A Realm Divided will make Chronicles of the Justicar look like a minor disagreement among friends in terms of conflict. The Shadow Prophet is going to make everyone wish they were still dealing with the Void God than to tackle this evil.
What I can promise A Realm Divided will have over Chronicles of the Justicar are;
-Simpler main plot (The Shadow Prophet isn't here to watch his enemies suffer like Pandemonium, he wants to take over the realms and get back to watch the next episode of MLP; Friendship is Magic)
-More romances that lead somewhere (Its all fine and dandy that Arjun and Liken worked out but that was the only one who did, Azerigan says hi)
-Better Written (Now with better paragraph structure!)
-More desperate odds (I cannot begin to describe how one sided the confrontations against the Order of the Apocalypse will be, but hey, that's what the Black Stars are there for to show that the invincible enemy can be defeated.)
-More character development (The whole Black Star team and all the anti-heroes will be getting full development and not just limited to a few)
-Longer (A Realm Divided is easily going to be much longer in length that Chronicles of the Justicar)
So yeah I'm really excited for this new story arc and if you have any comments, questions, and concerns just leave a comment or PM me!
Until Next time!
