I’ve noticed people wanting to start discussions on various topics related to The Arinthian Line, Fury of a Rising Dragon, etc in the comments section of the blog posts, which in turn get buried over time. This discussion page should help (scroll to the very bottom to post your own thought/question, or reply to someone else along the way). I’ll weigh in//respond in between bouts of writing/editing when I can.
Let me kick things off by quoting a reader, who said, “What I find inspiring is that I think we can all find a little of ourselves in each of the characters.”
All right, so which of the characters do you relate to, and why?
If that question doesn’t inspire you, perhaps one of these will:
What’s your favorite scene?
Who is your favorite villain?
What’s your favorite spell? Why?
Which light-hearted scene did you enjoy the most? Why?
Which scene was the most thrilling for you?
Otherwise, have any questions, ideas, thoughts? Leave a comment below, and we’ll see how it goes!

Hello! I finally return! It’s been too long since I have set my eyes upon the Arcane World… (I’ve been reading another series)
Welcome back! There’s a discord server now by the way. Check out the link up top ;)
Just finished the Arcane Artist! Loved it! Who wins in a dual between a 10th degree Augum and a 10th degree Anna (no scion)??
Ooo good question. Who do YOU think would win? ;)
Glad you enjoyed TAA!
FYI I fixed the link to the discord server, which I didn’t realize expired. This one should be permanent: https://discord.gg/d9W64ebyZJ
I just reread Anna’s book and I just wanna say. Sever bronny is my favorite author. And that is 1 of my favorite.
I am honored :)
Hellooooo anyone here?
Me too! ;)
I AM ON DISCORD!
Things have quieted down around here on the website a bit, but in turn ramped up on the discord server (see link above). That said, questions and comments tend to get buried on the discord server, so if you want your question to hang around, so to speak, then by all means ask it here. That said, I hope to expand the FAQ in due course to help new arrivals out.
“The Arcane Artist” is on schedule for an early December launch.Very excited to reveal the adventure Anna undertakes.
Oooh! It is sad that the website is dying down though.
I expect it to slowly come to life as more books come out, and as I update the lore, maps, etc :)
I hope it comes back to life sooner rather then later though
You an ice warlock can controll temperature of stuff they are holding with shine right? What happens if 1 cast shine the grabbed a fire warlocks elemental weapon? Would they be able to put it out?
Good question. I’d have to think about the mechanics of that as it comes to arcaneological principles. Preliminarily, I want to say that nothing would happen in the early degrees as the ice would not be strong enough to snuff another warlock’s spell. But that might work differently in the later degrees.
I think there should be a book about multiple weddings described in detail.(events for each characters leading up to it, how each character feels, the wedding itself, maybe even about a honeymoon, etc.) the weddings for Augum and Leera, Jengo and Priya, Bridget and Olaf, maybe even Alyssa and Brandon and Cry and Haylee.
Agreed, in fact in Legend.Priya and Jengo were going to have a wedding.
In valor, it mentions that Augum managed to cast the 4th degree healing spell Empathetic Transmission which revealed that he had “dual arcane inclanations” .. Do you think that if there was another series following the trio would there be more of this happening?
The next series after Anna’s will be about the trio, however unless Augum has started to use it then it will “Die out”.
Is there dual elements that the second isn’t healing?
And if so can you combine them?
Yes, you can dual element without the second one being healing, but it’s exceptionally rare as the most common pairing is with the healing element. Also, pairing elements together other than healing slows both down. That and the warlock would have to be a sort of genius to juggle both in the first place. But yeah, I hope to show this part of the world off someday with a character ;)
I am a huge fan of your books and just finished reading both the Arinthian Line series and the Fury of a Rising Dragon series for a second time. I hope to get the Chronicles of Anna Atticus Stone books that are out. I think your books are probably my favorite series, dare I say even better than the Harry Potter series. I have to admit after I read your books I sometimes stare at an object in an attempt of telekinesis and hope that you somehow caused a rift between the world in your books and our world, and those able can learn the arcane arts. I had a question regarding dual arcane inclinations. Would a healing warlock be able to have an inclination to another element? And if so, would they be able to ethically train in it and use it?
Oh wow, LucyD, that is so cool, I am honored. And I have to admit I may have stared at an object as well in the hopes that I could somehow make it telekinetically move, lol.
As to your question: Would a healing warlock be able to have an inclination to another element? Theoretically, yes, but it’s far, far rarer as healing consumes a vast amount of energy and focus, and so warlocks pursuing that element rarely go beyond it. That said, yes, there would be some ethical concerns for them which would have to be navigated, but again, it’s such a rare occurrence that those concerns hardly ever come up.
Why didn’t Anna get her second ring yet?
It was explained it Prodigy of thunder that they wouldn’t want Anna advancing so fast as it would put the family under suspicion.
But it’s allowed to learn 2 degrees ahead?
And mind armor is extremely important
Well Thomas didn’t really want the family to be under any suspicion but I’m guessing it was a mix of reasons like wanting Anna to have “A normal school-life”, also Anna didn’t have a lot of friends and if Anna had been pushed up to the third degree immediately that would hurt her social life even more.
Just to the first and then she could legally learn mind armor
Yeah, because her father was strong enough to cast Convey degree and Anna could have had 2 degrees by the time she went to the academy but the suspicion that would come shortly after was not worth it.
*I was the anonymous commentator as well, forgot to add my name
It would be nice to see firsthand ofb spell discovery
Bonjour mes amies! How are you guys? It feels so weird to talk because I have nothing to talk about that is about the books. But how are all of you? I have been dying of heat in a summer theatre production. Go crew!!
I’m doing great, summers started.There are ten books, sure you could find something (: Are you doing a specific play or?
Annie Jr., which we actually just finished.
Wow. The website has really died
Yeah, seriously.It’s really sad to be honest.
Personally I’m up for a conversation any time.
Yea. I have been busy but nothing for 3 months!!!
That’s part of the price of moving discussion to the discord server. Ideally I’d like to balance both in the long run ;)
Fantastic work as always :)
How do you know what your element is
Search your soul :)
Hey I just finished rereading Clash and I had a few questions. So in the scene where Secratery Watts catches the trio, one of the legion guards are named private Ribbons. Are they of any relation to the Ribbons couple in legend that help the trio and Mrs. Stone in the black castle. Also I was wondering how Sparkstone knew Augums plans to steal the Divining Rod. Did he use some Telepathy spell or is he just a very good tactition?
The Ribbons relationship is unknown and I believe that he is just a very smart person(Albeit being heavily airagont) and a good tactician even at Hangman’s rock he didnt underestimate Mrs.Stone.
How is what your is element decided? (Sorry, that grammar was really clunky.) Also, is it genetic? In Anna’s book, her and her sister are fire and lightning like their parents. Besides, am I the only one who is mad about the academy not letting people earn stripes whenever they wanted. Also, is Lividius dual element inclined (necromancy and lightning) One more, if air warlocks could control the weather could they make lightning or rain? Nvm one more, are scions more powerful if it’s your natural element. What did the healing scion look like anyway?
PS I want a scene with Anna in the library of Antioc sneaking in and training in the tenth degree rooms as a like 3rd degree warlock :). And why wouldn’t she also take a bunch of degree tests like Augum and Leera and Bridget.
PPS what element is Leland and Ty Sharpe?
PPPS Sorry this is so long (insert sheepish smile)
I believe it is two things 1.Genetic has a role in it(Also think about how Deya and their mom were more similar and how Anna and Sampson were more similar and how they got them).Is the Arcane Ether,It works in mysterious ways allowing “Ordinary” parents to be able to have children with Arcane powers,IE Leland.
No, because Necromancy is an element anyone can take up as shown with Haylee Tennyson and Robin ,they both accepted the element as their own and trained with it(Haylee did it for a shorter period though)Although Lividius may have had other duel elements,IE Lightning and Fire.
That is currently unknown do to the lack of knowledge we have on Ancient Arcanery(Sever Bronny would be able to take this).
It was never explicitly said but,I believe yes because they were all gifted to the most powerful warlocks in each element.
In PoT It was spoken about Anna not attending immediately when she blossomed so as to not arouse even more suspicion on their family.Also currently Anna only knows 1st and second degree spells and Mind Armor(3rd) and reveal and disenchant.I doubt she would as that would arouse suspicion on her after her fathers and sisters deaths as well as the fact she only knows a handful of spells .
Leland had the sub-element of illusion but we have ent gained the information on what element he is.
Ty Sharpe’s element has never been mentioned as it was not of particular import due to his death so early in the series.
I hoped this helped and I’m guessing Sever Bronny has more in depth answers.
Hi everyone! How are you? I haven’t been on the website in a while, my classes are no joke. But I have a question. (Please don’t yell at me for forgetting their names. I haven’t read the book in a while.). It in Anna’s story, there is her main friends, two of whom are mentioned in Augum’s story. The two boys. But what about the girl? Was she ever mentioned in Augum’s story? I haven’t read the book in a while, and I am terrible with names. Thank you!
No, Samantha never was mentioned it tAL or FoaRD- Sever Bronny said in the Discord that she hit her ceiling at or before the tenth degree.
Oh. My mother said that we are too young do have discord. But thank you!
Question, someone told me to ask what this means. Sorry if its anything harmful. What does it mean? nosiquos ani enitrios
It means Knowledge is forever, it is in the arcane tongue and is the library of Babels motto-A very nice w]quote
It means Knowledge is forever and is the Libary of Babbels quote
It is the motto of the Library of Babbel-It means Knowledge is forever; wonderful quote.
Oops it glitched for me
My apologies, I never realized I was anonymous
How should one apply to the Academy of Arcane Arts?
See the discord server, where you can role-play with fellow fans ;)
Happy Birthday Augum Arinthian Stone!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY 🎉 AUGUM STONE!!!!
Hey everyone, I’m back!
I’ve got something a bit different this time. It’s about the battle of the Tallows and not a character theme. I’ve also added a couple other things. Anyways, here it is, hope you enjoy :https://www.noteflight.com/scores/view/d2f91aa97e0106e4af764d4487eb6fbda3112b8b
Minstrel Nathan Adrictus, This is by far my favorite one yet.I loved the intro as well as the fast paced battle music, One thing I would change personally I would either have the ending be slowed down a middle so as to not have an abrupt ending or do a Final(The highest one yet) Crecendo for the climax/Final battle.
Overall though, I love this-It is my favorite yet, Bravo Minstrel Nathan Adrictus.
Edible. Short for incredible! Short for the most incredible song you made yet
I love it!!! This might just be my favorite piece that you have made!
Does anyone wanna join my guild?Justice,Rules,and skill. We enforce the academy rules some of the best duelers and are usually the master of ceremonies.
Any one up for a duel?
Sure I’m second degree
Ok, you can go first!Meet me in the duel whenever
Sorry I have been gone for while. Was busy. I am very excited that we almost all have ranks(including me).
Welcome back Attendant Kaden”Wildfire”.
Thanks. Nice to see yall
Dropping by in between a writing break with an idea: a warlock tournament between the fans, using an irrefutable and fair rolling system everyone can see. Just a thought for the future, with the winner and runner-up receiving a special gift.
Hmm, sounds fun, we would wan to make it so that it wasn’t just based on complete luck.
You know, one thing that confuses me throughout the books is the role that the witches play. There appear to be a few contradictions about them that don’t really make a lot of sense. For one, in Riven their origins (as told by Mr. Goss in the legend of the three candles) seems to be that they were a cult of human women who sacrificed a girl and were teleported to Hell as a result. But in Book 4, Peyas the Occi tells the trio that they are in fact the “daughters” of the Ruler of Hell, perhaps suggesting that they are instead his creations. Also, another thing that confuses me about them is the presence of Magua in Ley. Unlike the other witches (who are aptly described as being Demonic in PoT) She simply appears to be a mortal woman who was granted access to Ley just like anyone else. This begs the Question: are witches solely being found in Hell, or were there once human witches who (with the obvious exception of Magua) died off long ago? Also, another thing that confuses me is their planning. As the witch in the Arcaner ritual showed, they have the power to unilaterally summon portals to Ley. This begs the question: if their primary goal is to take Ley on their master’s behalf, why would they need Human necromancers like Lividius and Occulus to build portals for them using a complex recipe if they can just summon them on their own? Also, why would they do such counterproductive things like contacting Mrs. Stone on Augum’s behalf and allowing Arcaners the ability to enter Ley in order to obtain Dragons? wouldn’t that be inadvertently helping their enemies? The more I ask these sorts of questions, the more questions seem to pop up. But overall, I think that the witches (and their mysterious father) are a fascinating element of the lore in the world the trio inhabit. They seem to be the real evil forces at work, with the Lords of Death merely serving as their pawns, showing us how deeply rooted their power is. I hope that the trio one day gets to face the head-on, and finally restore peace to the world once and for all (perhaps in a future story were the worlds of Hell and Sithesia collide, forcing them to act). Overall, I am excited for what is to come in terms of storytelling, and lore deepening, no matter where that direction may lead.
Great job on getting ranks Junior Attendant Marek Cahill, Junior Attendant Moira C., Junior Attendant Kaden “Wildfire”, Junior Attendant Alexander “Titan” and Minstrel Nathan Adrictus!
On Sever Bronny’s behalf,Nathan Adrictus, would you like a bard role (because of the music you have made)or would you prefer a different title fitting into the category of music?Also Please define what you would like the,”Bard”,role to be?
All right, as requested, I’ve started a discord server. It will be an experiment to see if it’s possible to foster greater community involvement, increase the quality of duels, and even perhaps introduce a role-playing element into the world. So let us now step into the academy common room, a sparse place, one that will need input from you. Please make the place your own. I am completely new to discord so will be learning as I go, and I will of course be constrained by time as the writing and the business affairs that come with publishing takes precedence.
Anyway, I look forward to seeing if this works. If you have any suggestions on how to improve things, fire away! If there’s such a thing as
This is different from all the questions I have been having lately, but are Cry and Haylee actually together? Because it never actually states bf and gf in the book so idk.
I think they are,I think for the most of two series Haylee has been trying to get a Boyfriend and now I think she’s settled with Cry (Although that could change ,if another Arthur comes to town).
kk.Also, have you done your move in the arena because I don’t see it unless you started a new chain
I just remebered that in Clash when Harvus teleported Leera he used Double Teleport or “impetus peragro bato”. We never see this being used again and I just had a few questions.
1. Is this a standard spell or an off-the-books spell?
2. What degree is this?
3. Can this spell keep going up in numbers (impetus peragro [ito, dio, lito])
We talked about this briefly in a conversation(A couple other people) and I think its a OTB, (It would be mentioned more if it was a standard)we don’t know what degree it is but it probably is either 9th degree(A different version of teleport similar to spectral teleport) or a couple degrees higher 10-13 at max probably.As we know Bato most likely means 2 or twice, so it it could be or it might not be-due to the lack of information we do not know.
Probably otb, probably has iti, dio, lito, with it being around 12 13 14 15, for the respective levels. Also we have “impetus peragro obiectum massus” which Terse used when teleporting the crate(p. 292 clash) and “impetus peragro atto” which Terse used for some reason(p.297 clash)
Everyone,quickly could you check clash and see because I just checked and ,Harvus’s teleport spell seems to have changed to a regular group teleport and the,”impetus peragro atto”, seems to have vanished although there still is a regular teleport on that page…Did mr.Bronny change it?
Really? I mean, I think mine is different because I bought a downloaded copy so I don’t know if it would change. Also, how would Harvus know a 17th degree spell when he is 9th degree in the book.
Harvus was nefarious and studied (illegally) ahead, learning some key spells. He actually has a dark history which I never got a chance to get into, but he did some awful things on behalf of his “religion.”
As to that version of Teleport, it is indeed an off-the-book Canterran variation.
Yea,It makes sense he studied ahead ,although I’m interested why he didn’t use other (Ahead,Although maybe he didn’t know any others or they were not combat focused) spells in the big fight(maybe instinct took over).So does that mean there are regional OTB spells and different variations based on region?Would these spells be a guarded secret(Similar to how many Arcane Manacles a kingdom has and information about them)
Quick Question – Is the 16th Degree Memorial Ceremony incantation these words “I call upon the spirits of the dead to listen to theories of the living, and to remember those they left behind, those who still breathe the air and walk above ground. Dearly departed, allow us a final goodbye as we mourn your passing from this life.” or is this just what people say and there is another incantation
4. You should add this to the list of teleport extensions.
Ahhh replied to wrong comment. #4 is for the impetus peragro bato question.
Hey everyone! I hope you are all doing well and had a good Christmas.
Over christmas break I got a little bored and inspired by Prodigy of Thunder and so spent several hours working on Anna’s Theme. As usual, I emailed it to Sever Bronny and got permission to post it. I’m really happy with this one and hope you guys like it. Let me know what you think!
That’s awesome,love the two final lines(I’m not super into music so I don”t know what their called);Love the entire song-thank you
Thank you :)
I actually took a risk with the last few lines. almost all music is structured in even measure phrases, 2 measure, 4 measures and 8 measures are the most common. However, I wrote the last few lines with 5 Measures so I’m glad you like it.
Just had an idea for a dueling tactic that could really only work in a book. So if both contestants know centarro then one could cast it at a low proficiency at the other duelist. They wouldn’t expect it or have any chance of blocking it as they would have no practice blocking it. They would almost immediately be put in the centarro haze and would lose as a rresult.
However that is assuming that they couldn’t block it, which I dont know if they could or not.
Just thought of this as reading other posts about centarro.
From my recollection, Centarro cannot be cast on another person (at least not using the spell variation the trio know), but that’s still a fun idea :)
I remember Thomas Stone In Riven,TaL-casted Centarro on The trio as well as Sido to show them the capabilities of the spell as well as the serious drawbacks.
Didn’t Thomas cast it on the trio?
I thought so as well
I just finished reading Legend again, and I noticed in the author’s notes section that you put, “The next series will be a trilogy, with our protagonists beginning a new chapter in their lives as legendary heroes.” The Fury of a Rising Dragon series is now tetralogy (a 4 book series) and I was wondering when you realized that you wanted this to be 4 instead of 3.
Also, just finished rereading Burden’s Edge. In these author’s notes it says “Next up in the Fury of a Rising Dragon series, due 2018: Honor’s Price (Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 2) Champion’s Wrath (Fury of a Rising Dragon, book 3)”. I actually thought that Champion’s Wrath was the add-on, but it was Mercy’s Trial. Also, followup question, How do you figure out the names? Of books, spells, incantations, people, etc.
And follow, follow up, at the end of Honor’s Price you knew that you needed the series to be more than a trilogy. I quote, “And truth be told, I don’t know if I can wrap up the Fury of a Rising Dragon storyline within a trilogy anymore.” (Im just going through all of your author notes sections now :D )
Yeah things invariably change when you’re writing. I learned not to make too many predictions because of that principle, and try to avoid saying how long series will be, otherwise I could run into problems like that. The latest versions of the ebooks should have updated endmatter, and if they don’t yet, I’ll get there eventually :)
Important discussion Topic!
Volaris Flurris while dueling thought that Centarro should have a limit,I agree with that.I think it should be a turn limit,So this is an open-ended conversation topic on what should we do for it?
As Attendant Atticus Monroe suggested in “The Arena”, I think we should have it last longer based on degree.
1st-2nd degree 1 turn (Block/Parry and Counter).
3rd-5th degree 2 turns
6th-8th degree 3 turns
9th+ degree 4 turns
I don’t know if we should incorporate the side effect, but if we did, I think it should be along the same lines as how long it should last
1st-3rd degree [Side Effect] lasts 3 turns
4th-6th degree lasts 2 turns
7th+ lasts 1 turn.
This system is that higher degrees get the side effect for less turns. I think this is flawed, however, because if you are a 1st-3rd degree, your opponent gets 3 free hits on you. But maybe we can develop this further.
Well the 3 turns (or whatever it ends up being)should be a -to your parry/defenses as well as all of your moves
Or, instead of not being able to do a turn, we could have the side effect subtract a certain amount of points from the caster’s roll. I think -6 would be enough. This would last an amount of turns, and I don’t think it would be dependent on degree as, seen by the trio, they still get the same time of the side effect even as they progress. I think it should last somwhere in the range of 2-4 turns.
I just thought about the quiz on mrs.stone I made a few months ago, so here it is again and I’m hoping that everyone gets atleast the 2nd. And yes the 1st and 3rd are in arcane whilst the 2nd is in riven.
How old was she in arcane?
What town was she born in?
How old was she when she got her 20th degree?
101/102 depends on time(I forgot and am not read arcane and riven again for a bit)
84/85(and, as a bonus, got her sleeve at 94/95
I got the first 2 but forgot the 3rd because I haven’t read Arcane in a while. And yes River’s end (obviously).
Quick note: from my records, Anna gets her 20th degree at 67 years of age, as noted in Honor’s Price:
Almost forty statues later, near the very end of the passage, they were staring up at the majestic sight they’d known awaited them.
“ ‘Anna Atticus Stone, distinguished lightning element graduate of the 20th degree in thy year 3305, aged sixty-seven,’ ” Bridget read aloud.
Also note that I messed up the date in the original version. The above date is the correct one.
Okay. Is the age for mastery correct?
Happy endyear everyone!You can now blow out the candles without any bad omens happening!
Attendant Atticus Monroe
Happy New Year, everyone!!!!
Everyone I just realized something that Dradeya is actually Augum’s Great aunt!Also I think we should vote if we should call ,”Dradeya Atticus Stone”,Deya or Dradeya.So reply to this comment saying what name we should call her and 1-2 sentences on why.
Deya, for simplicity. I’ve already forgot how yo spell dredeya in a comment (on to your comment on my post down there) and resorted to deya.
Also it would be Augums great great aunt as great aunt refers to one’s grandmother’s sister.
I thought it was great great I wasn’t sure.
Can you reflect teleports? I dont see any reason why not.
Hmm intriguing idea,but I don’t think so,when the trio has reveal on all the spells are heading at them-hence why they can block them.But I believe the teleport as we have seen before in teleport tracking that it doesn’t pause or stop it instantly takes you to the next location.So I would think that it would be the speed of sound or light and would be impossible to do even under the influence of slow time or centarro.That’s just my opinion though
You know, I never thought of that! It’s interesting; however I don’t think it true because teleport is more about yourself. It would be hard to reflect because the spell isn’t even pointed at you. I think it might be more like an aura of arcane energy around you when you do the spell or something? Lol
I agree I think that a teleport is focused if this makes sense just goes to the location and not like an arrow going to a location like the first offensive.
I agree that teleport probably jumps through the weather so isn’t like an arrow, but I thought of this when deya was able to pinpoint the exact degree(136 south east btw) that Veruca ported’ which led me to believe that the tendrils that teleport leave would be long enough to be able to be reflected, however as teleport is instant(confirmed by forever-open portals) that of you had a reflect up in the direction they teleport to before the spell is cast then you could reflect a teleport.
This also leads me to believe that you could boost your ports’ using something like the 20th degree trainer’s spell magnifier.
I doubt Teleport could be reflected, due to the principals of the Mirror. The spell’s tendrils most connect with the Mirror, as in an Offensive of mind attack, and since Teleport’s tendrils are focused on the caster alone, it seems unlikely.
Who would win?Augum(End of legion War, but no Cron or Scion) or Anna (End of Prodigy of thunder (With no Scion?)
Anna hands down. She was a powerful warlock before the scion.
I don’t know, I think Augum might win.
Well a better question would be would deya or augum win?
Anna!!!!! Dradeya definitely outmatches Augum in terms of skill (no offense Aug) but Augum has the will to get back up even if he has fallen hard, which he and his Legendary Great-Grandmother share.
I think Augum would definitely win against Anna but lose to dradeya. Because at that point Augum’s telekinesis was strong enough to contend with mrs.Hawthorn, so would be able to deflect trown staffs. He also knows reveal, however hasn’t used it in battle yet. He also has things such as summon weapon, summon armour, summon elemental, and burdens edge. With this I think he decisively wins. I dont think I have to explain why Dradeya wind.
I have no opinion on who would win (although I have my suspicions), I just wanted to chime in that I love this question, as it never even occurred to me to mentally challenge them against each other in a hypothetical match. Too fun.
Hi Mr. Bronny, I had a question about the Fury of the Rising Dragon series. Throughout the 4 books, we see Augum, Leera, and Bridget casting all of their learned Arcaner simuls. We also see Jengo casting his support simuls. But we never see any of the other arcaners use any of their simuls. Maybe in future books you could add more of that into the story? Also, I really love all your book series and can’t wait for more releases.
Hello Volaris (cool name, btw!). Yeah I was aware of that when I finished it in the end, but it was too late by then to edit in their various contributions. It’s just one of those things that unfortunately got left aside. But I look forward to amending that in the future, particularly when the trio run the Arcaner Order (assuming that plotlline comes to fruition, that is. Some major story ideas are in the works for the trio).
Just wanted to wish you all happy and cozy holidays. I appreciate each and every one of you :)
Thank you (:
Everyone found another interesting tidbit while I was rereading Anna’s book,at the opening introduction where deya was talking before everyone went to shop town Deya happened to mentioned Attyla’s the Mighty’s Dreadnought dagger named, wait for it, Blackbite. Who has a dagger named blackbite ,right Leera.So how did that dagger get into a drawer in Castle Arinthian?What do you think,I think someone stole it somehow and id it or something like that.Though I do not believe the trio will ever find out about this.
I was wondering when someone would spot that little nugget :)
Yeah it’s all really interesting, like a reverse of foreshadowing!
Dang. I missed that. I must have been reading too fast.
Jacob Tontiruum”The shadeHunter” and Kaden<"WildFire",Please continue your respective duels.
So, I have a question! I just reread Mercy’s trial for like the umpteenth time and pondered about something. Obviously, the trio were after the eggs in order to find favor with their prospective element dragons, right? The whole point of that harrowing ordeal was so they could learn secrets from the dragons themselves, mainly the Spirit of the Dragon simul. so, are the necromantic dragons the only dragons to take and “Absorb” other dragon’s eggs? Or is it simply all the elements in a free for all? Do necromantic dragons lay eggs as well, or do they produce offspring through consuming the eggs of the other dragons? How did the Path Archons do their whole “whatever trial thingy” to become one with the necromantic dragons without an egg, how did they earn the trust of such vicious beasts? just wondering!
In that book they mention that yes there is a necrotic dragon egg, but a human sacrifice is preferable.I think
I guess that makes sense. Would certainly explain some things, like that because there are so many Path archons, they didnt want to do a egg for every single person.
OK so guys Ive been looking in the photos page and if people could help with this it would be appreciated,So in the photos page, we need to scour every sticky note on the Early sticky-note plot graph page.So 2 things caught my eye first The first being that in aftermath, theres an orange sticky note that I believe says,”Scions *Could* be sequestered in Leyan Library,”So that is very INTRESTING the second being there is a couple of sticky notes,One says<"Wedding Distasters",meaning originally a wedding was going to be planned.Now I believe it would have been Priyas and Jengos because the next sticky note say's"Priyas maid of Honor is Haylee,"then it says Jengo's is Chaska",Could now people help me discover everything on this page.It is of high priority because of the secrets it could hold.The first one is very important though, Remember the first one said<"*Could",but still! It could be very interesting.What do you think?
Sure, Atticus. It will be a perilous task, but I shall decipher The Secrets Of Sever Bronny’s Plot Board.
Very odd you want to know this. But, I will help too.
good also now that there area multiple people online we can talk more easily
Again, perilous. My search also bore no fruit. Except, “Bridget Sick One Day”. Or something like that. Also “Darby’s Revenge”, oh also, lots of stuff about Archers, like “Arcaners Specific” and, stuff. Also, “The Path”, which we already know exists.
How do you zoom in?
If on chromebook, mac, or whatever else that is a laptop, than you can do ctrl (+) + If on ipad phone, or anything else, just use your fingers. Also, you can zoom with your fingers on chrome, mac, or laptop. Oh, this is how you un-zoom. ctrl (+) – HMMMMMMMMM. I believe that a human sacrifice is needed right? For a necromantic dragon. Also, guys we got a form of a “GOOD” Necromancer as the one in Prodigy Of Thunder. Well, good intentions, at least.
Thanks marek.True about the necromancer though I think that there will be a better one,Because we already had(I forget his name the path archon who saved the group in Endraga Ra was a “Good Necromancer”,but I feel like we will eventually get a better one thats good ALL the time.
Found something called “Whisper Blades.” We know them though.
this came out like 8 days ago and i just found out im gonna cry i shouldve ordered it 8 days ago!!
Hey no worries, lots of people are just finding out it launched. Hope you enjoy Anna’s first solo story, Devon!
I just received word that a long-time fan, Hailey, passed on this evening. I posted part of her story on the reader mail page, although no words of mine can convey the meaning of the loss of this young lady. It’s a reminder to me that although these may be mere words on a screen, they represent real people with real experiences, real hardships, and real joys. Yet as someone who writes for a living, I know that words mean much, for they also represent time and emotion and experience of the imagination.
Appreciate each other, because life is brittle and surprisingly quick. And enjoy the time you have, whether it be in school, reading by a fire, cuddling your loved ones, or fighting in the arena.
My deep condolences to the family.
My condolences to Hailey, may you rets in peace.
I am sorry for the loss. Every life is special and unique with no exceptions. While it is sad for those left behind I truly believe that Hailey is in a better place, one of peace. Goodbye Hailey, may you rest in peace, as you most certainly deserve peace.
:/ That sucks!!! I remember reading her Fan Mail. . . My deep condolences.
My sincere Condolences to Hailey and her family. Repose en paix.
I know I’m late, but may you rest in peace Hailey. I hope you are in a better place now.
Quick note: I’m often asked how people can help spread the word, so I’ve thrown up a promotional package for your use:
*Minor spoiler if you haven’t read Prodigy of Thunder yet.
I finished Anna’s book! And OMG! It was so good! I finished it in three days! It was so good, that at the end when you found out [SPOILER HIDDEN], and her sister [SPOILER HIDDEN], I cried!
I LOVED READING IT!!! SO GOOD!
[For context, this response was to a post that was removed by the author]
I cleaned things up for y’all. All good, and glad you enjoyed it, Moira :)
I’m sorry that you read the spoiler. I didn’t mean to offend anyone. I was merely just expressing my excitement for the book, and how good it was. Again, I’m sorry. Didn’t mean to hurt your feelings. It’s just a little spoiler and I didn’t know that anyone would look at it if they hadn’t read the book. I’m sorry. Genuinely sorry.
And now the book is available to preorder on audible too!
Just preordered it!
Wait is anna’s book out yet!?! If so… is it on kindle???
Yes, its been out since December 3rd.It’s on Kindle and paperback.(:
WHY DIDNT ANYONE TEL ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ):
kaden I literally told you, and it was in the news letter as well as the website!Also I replied immediately to you when you asked if annas book out (:
Guys, I think that her mother’s name is Atticus (Last Name) and her father’s name is Stone. Though ,I am not sure.
Hi! So I have a semi important question. Is Anna’s last name Atticus Stone? Or is it just Stone? Because in the book it says that her sister name is also Atticus Stone. I didn’t know if it was a middle name that they shared or a last name.
I believe,its just her middle name.Though I don’t know for sure.
The name Atticus comes from the mother’s side of the family, and Stone form the father’s :)
I have two things to talk about (Well obviously more with the release, but I’ll wait till everyones read it on here)
The first is group question/discussion.So At the end of Legend we learn from the trios/Kraktos/Anna (I probably misspelled Kraktos)That,”Cron”,was a 20th master degree spell.Though it was extremely powerful and it aged you the main side effect were ,”The Shadows”.Then In Mercies Trial we learn that ,”Spirit of the Dragon”,is a 15th degree, Leyan, Arcaner, Dragon Spell.The,”Spirit of The Dragon Simul”, does have lesser effects then,”The Shadows”,because even though it has the anger afterward.We know that it is manageable through Isabell’s course as we see in the extra chapter at the end of Champions Wrath, we see Leera and Augum preparing to take flight and planning ahead on what they’ll do after the spell.
This is not about the first question so maybe skip ahead till I finish it,I just realized it whilst writing the question/.discussion.
One second I just had a realization as I was writing this, that Centarro is the same, if you plan and think about the side effects before casting the spell, the side effects will be diminished or shortened.Although we have not see this in action for the,”Spirit of the Dragon Simul”,I firmly believe that most Leyan spells or at Least its is advanced and under Leyan spells that follow under the rule of ,if you prepare for the side effects carefully as well as the spell-the spell’s side effects will be diminished or shortened.
Going on-those are the 2/3 of the strongest spells in the trios arsenal are Leyan ,Both of them should be higher degree, around at least 8th degree for centarro and 20th master for ,”Spirit of the Drgaon”,as that literally brought an opposing Kingdom to it’s knees.So comment below what spellsIf you could make them your selves would be Leyan and what degree would they be?
Now the second one is a SPOILER for prodidgy of Thunder,a slight one but still
Look away SPOILER
Who else noticed that in anna’s time roughly 85-90 years give or take the Canterrans had the Path going,I always presumed that the path was created within the Trio’s Generation or just recently to use it to an end, so was it originally just a religion and Kind Samuel decided to manipulate when it came the time for him to where the crown?
What does everyone think,and what do you think Mr.Bronny?
Ok and 2 thing that Mr.bronny has said in the past that I want to ask about that are below
I have a fresh paperback copy of Champion’s Wrath ready for the contest. Will announce it in due course (been quite busy with the new book on Anna and other life things of late, but look forward to spending more time with the fans soon).
So when will this happen,Mr.Bronny?
You guys are awesome. Dueling in comments is absolutely brilliant. Good luck to all combatants! P.S. I wonder if I can create a text-based tournament for duels, and I can be the arbiter. Winner of the tournament receives a real prize from me. Hmm…
So when are these things happening,Are they connected?
Sorry, this is probably my longest post and I was planning to write 3-4 sentences and I thought of it randomly and it become this.Thank you and tell me what you think.Also I think for the next month or so we should say that there is a spoiler below about Prodigy of thunder just to be safe and after that period-Tread with caution if you have not read it.
When is Marek getting his rank,Marek mentioned you emailed him about it earlier this year.So I was wondering.
The Trio’s/kraktos/Anna Conversation sorry it was a typo.
Yes, you are spelling it incorrectly, Krakatos. lol. I agree with you Atticus I have been waiting for quite some time, but I can wait longer, if I am truly going to get a rank that is.
Ok, missing an A.I think you might just get a senior rank for waiting so long lol(Seriously though I wonder what you will get though.
I apologize for taking so long with the ranks. I wanted to discuss that with you guys. We have options:
1. We could, for example, scrap the attendant title and simply go with degrees. So Attendant Monroe would get promoted to “3rd degree Atticus Monroe”.
2. Or we could adopt the official series warlock robe color ranks, from lowest rank to highest: Apprentice, Initiate, Adept, Mage, Grandmage, Archmage, Master Archmage.
3. Or we could continue with the “Attendant” title but add a modifier, such as “1st degree Attendant” etc.
4. Or we could brainstorm and come up with something else entirely that still makes sense within the framework of the world of Sithesia.
Very much open to your thoughts, guys.
I feel as though that the ranks, from lowest to highest would be better than 1st Degree Attendant, but that’s my opinion. In response to Q4, I think it’d be a fun and cool idea if we had to pass the Arcaner Trials to become Arcaners, and I know lots of us started to include being an arcaner in our duling bios. I really think this could work out. Now to see if Mr. Bronny will implement it to the website. . .
*Wink wink nudge nudge*
Bonjour mes amis! Sorry that I have not been on the website in a while, I have a lot of schoolwork and after school activities to do, sorry! But, as for the ranks I personally would like if we all came up with something for the ranks. Thanks!
Also, if we do something significant we could earn more degrees?
SPOILERS, WARNING. Now that I am on page 126, (Trying to savor it, another book is so far away,) I understand Anna’s Suffering. Her mother, her sister, her father, it all adds up to a pretty sad life. I feel so very sorry for her, and the fact her older sister, her ONLY sister, hates her, makes fun of her and torments her, is so disgusting. That is what her sister is willing to do to obtain the scion, which is, just so mind blowing. Though, we all know Anna defeats her in a duel and inherits it, I just feel so bad.
I agree,I feel that we should create our own system for ranks that has to do with, time on the website, general book knowledge, lore and spell knowledge.As well as some sort of trial/quiz for Ranks and Arcaner Trials.Now let us discuss the system we want to devise…
Oh my gosh I completely forgot about holding a contest for Mercy’s Trial! Hmmm…
Question for Sever Bronny
Did you get the idea for stinkRoot from Stinkhorn mushroom?
No it was just one of those fun random ideas that came to me in the spur of the moment whilst writing that very first scene in the cave with the trio.
I just wanted to tell you Mr. Bronny that the only disappointing thing about your books is that there isn’t any more of them. I drive and make deliveries so I’ve been throughly enjoying all of your books and I crave so much more. Also am I the only one that thinks Augum’s space worping with his telekinesis is amazing. Also Anna is a beast
Agreed on everything you just said.
Hiyas Billy! It takes a long time to structure and edit these stories. I also deeply care about their content and how the story works, so unfortunately that means I can only write about one book a year (which is already a lot compared to most authors who write this length of books). Still, I do wish I was faster and that there were more hours in the day! But I also risk burnout if i push too hard (and I already push pretty hard).
Enjoy Anna’s story, and thank you for your support, Billy :)
—Release date for Prodigy of Thunder is likely only a weeks or so away now!
—ART member emails are coming as early as tomorrow. Please do not post spoilers ;)
—The person narrating Prodigy of Thunder is the accomplished Moira Quirk. Her IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1190771/
—Release date for the audiobook will likely be Feb 2022.
—The mountains seen in the “sneak peek” announcement are the Northern Peaks. A fun future trivia note: Anna was born in River’s End, and that’s her regular view.
I’m excited, you guys. Anna was so much fun to write, and yet she had her trials and sufferings. I learned from Bridget and Leera though, and I am confident in the work.
Prepare yourselves :)
So super excited for the book!
Mr. Bronny, what ever happened to Augum’s Horse, Toby? I am sorry this is such a random question, but, inspired by Atticus’s question “Which series has a better ending”, I read the ending again. . . I have been wondering about this for awhile now, actually, I believe I have posted this question before. Anyways, If you could grace me with an answer, that’d be great.
I believe that after the rules had been set Devon took his horse away and Augum thanked him.That’s what I’m remembering, though I’m sure to check the books after this.
Attendant Atticus is correct. And the horse is safe and sound in the village of Arinthia. Sometimes the trio go on leisurely rides with their trusty steeds, chatting about this and that. Think of all of them as living more relaxed lives as they progress through the degrees in the academy . . . for now.
Hey, Mr. Bronny! You said Anna Atticus Stone lived in River’s End, right? Well I looked at the map of Arcane, and it says “The Ruins of River’s End” what happened to it?
You will find out in the next book,In her chronicles.(;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;)))))))))))))))) How exciting. . .
INTERESTING. I can assume you are in the ART team? Anyways, going for a new look.
I have a very Important question for you Mr.Bronny question ,I know some people have already said this but, could you show a picture of you lego castle (We know it’s been dismantled)But do you have a picture of it before it got dismantled?
Which Final fight is better,Legend’s or Champions wrath?
OKAY, first of all, what a coincidence! My sister’s name is Moira! Anyways, I didn’t realize that Prodigy Of Thunder would be coming out so soon!!!! Also, Atticus I agree, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE show as a picture of your cat’s (dismantled) Lego Castle! To your second post, Atticus, I think that Champion’s Wrath was more grand in a sense, because they were fighting in such an iconic place, The Tallows, (It’s basically where the story began!) but, I think I liked Legend’s ending better, it was just so cool, picturing all the fighting in Castle Arinthian in my head, lol, and the Arcane Ballistas. Oh, so good!
Here’s a fun question
If you could add any Arcane implement into the world what would it be?
I’m meaning a particular spell, rune, ability,etc
Probably like a spell for a familiar, maybe it’d be an extension to the Summon Elemental spells
The spell that turns fountains into healing fountains
Ooh, good one. Hmmmmmm. . . Any Spell. . . I believe it’d be cool to have (Like Devon) an extension of Summon Elemental, where you could make an animal, if there is no food around, then you could kill it. Though that would be very helpful for the trio and their perilous journeys/quests, it’s kind of overpowered, so it’s fun to dream about, but I don’t really think it should become a reality.
Here is a fun answer:Slow time.Eh? Eh? You would never be late.
All great Ideas,I would probably choose one of these three 1.Teleport, near instant travel 2. telekinesis,Imagine if you became so well practiced, it would make many activities easier. 3.Centarro, enhanced concentration, more focus.You could use that for so many different things.Imagine if you read or listened to anything while under the effects of centarro.Also centarro would double as confusion,think about it Thomas was able to cast it on the trio and Sido.So hypothetically (Assuming it wasn’t another spell for casting centarro on the trio and Sido)You could momentarily cast centaro on a person then un do it or something like that allowing for a confusion like casting.Though I do love the idea of Slow time, healing fountain and minor elemental.
Oh easily an extension of Summon Portal called Battle Portal. Could be used to quickly transport oneself around an area, transport a large group of people, create windows to see or fire spells through, and even transport enemies and cut off body parts, as Doctor Strange does in the MCU. This would be an awesome addition to the Spells of Legend list and make for some fun and interesting battles.
Wait, isn’t there already a battle ‘port?
Oops- Never mind, I mistook the word.
Atticus, did you make the Burden’s Edge sword on the “Photo’s” page? It looks awesome!
I didn’t make it(I’m not a welder),I bought it for Halloween.Thank you
I would probably want like a teleportation spell. I could get anywhere fast.
– Regarding the contract signing news: I signed with Podium, an audiobook publishing powerhouse. I’m hoping they can help take my work to the next level. I signed for three books for Anna’s series, which will be narrated by a female British voice (she’s awesome; more on that soon). Trio will return in time of course (I have LOADS of plans for them as they age).
– Arcane / The Arinthian Line series has been doing EXCELLENT on Audible. Thank you to everyone who listened, as well as to those who took the time to leave a brief review.
– I addressed the fascinating topic of Augum being a flat earther (he’s not; see my response below).
– I haven’t had a chance to start a Discord server yet for your duels due to time constraints, but I plan on getting there eventually.
– Prodigy of Thunder is on schedule to launch early December. Cover and blurb reveal will probably happen on the day of launch. No release date will be announced yet (you guys know that’s the way I like to fly). There will also be an animated movie-style GIF of the cover, which ROCKS.
– I’m hoping you guys can help me promote Prodigy of Thunder on social media when it launches. I’m not very good with social media and don’t stay current with trends, as I find my energy is absorbed by the work (and when I do spend time on social media, I work less on the books). I’m already stretched thin juggling the behemoth responsibility of these books. Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated (even if it is simply sharing the launch posts).
Thanks for your patience, everyone. I’m really proud of the work, especially this book about Anna. I’m also particularly proud of all of you, and the cozy community you built here (even if it is nothing more than a message board). I hope to continue to see it grow and evolve, and I hope I can continue to be of service to you all.
Super excited for what’s to come,
Thank you, for the update.Also will you do all of Anna’s books in the next two years as it usually takes around 1 year for a book?Can’t wait for the new audio book series!
Hey guys, I know I already said this on the announcement of Prodigy Of Thunder, (Which I am super excited for!) but don’t those mountains in the bottom left look like Ley? Could this mean that Anna Stone goes there in her youth? Sorry if this sounds stupid.
Another theory-type post; I was just going through the blog posts, and I looked at AAS’s schedule, and it says: “11th aft bell- LIghts Out” Could this mean that the students from roughly ninety years before the trio slept at the academy? Kinda like a Hogwarts-type thing, where the students lived at the school during the school year, coming home for holidays and stuff like that? Also, the Headmistress before Anna was Headmistress Roth. (I know this because it’s on the schedule; under 1st Degree Advanced Arcane Studies) Whew, that took a little while to write.
Well Mrs.Stone said that there used to be more than 10,00 students so it would be like a college some people would live in dormitories or live off campus or even live in the Arcaner Dormitories.That’s my theory at least.
One more thing, though this is a question for Mr. Bronny. If they, *Solians* use a dialect that is similar (or even is) English, than would they write it that way? because again I was just looking at the Lore pages and such, and I looked at the crest that the trio made, the writing at the bottom is NOT English, might be a different language I am not familiar with, or it could be entirely made up. I just want to know.
Well there is the old tongue and the arcane tongue so…
The Arinthian motto is in the old tongue
I meant the main, old languages in the series.
The old tongue and the arcane tongue share a lot of similarities. The main difference is the old tongue is a language you can speak, whereas the arcane tongue is only used for spells. Both predate the Solian tongue by thousands of years.
Or it could be Mount Barrow or The Muranians or Northern peaks as the series is most likely going to be based in the Blackhaven area.
I’m not really sure that it could be any of those; looking at the maps in the book show they are covered in snow, we also know that because the trio almost freeze to death on multiple occasions. OR, during Anna Stone’s Academy years, could the world have looked different?
ahh… bit bummed Augum isnt a flat-earther…
but the rest is really cool! Im so excited for the new book, and im glad to hear that the audiobooks are going well!
I feel like someone has to mention this…
Augum’s a flat-earther
Well,I remember in the series they talked about what the shape of the earth was and Mr.Bronny even talked also I don’t believe Augum ever believed their,”world,”was flat.To be fair though in the books(FoaRD)I believe Leera or one of the trio made a comment saying,”You look like a walrus or something,” and this was after leera begged for the cube coats.If you go down you will see him saying this,To the inhabitants of the continent of Sithesia, with its seven mighty kingdoms, Sithesia *is* their world. They have no concept of anything beyond, and only theorize on the shape of their world. It’s very much a medieval mindset. That said, certain warlocks know what lies beyond Sithesia, but keep those secrets to themselves lest they are denounced as heretics and hunted, even by their own kind . . .”.
But in Champion’s Wrath (pg. 386), as Augum is alone in a field and waiting to attack a caravan (the one with Bowlander), before he even talks to Cry, we see some of his thoughts, and he fantasizes about finding the edge of the world, as well as mentions a flat plane like the Tallows makes more sense than a spherical world.
First of all, Happy Halloween (If you celebrate it) second of all, how do you guys even remember certain quotes from certain pages?! I can’t even really remember what degree the trio is! XD! Then again, I haven’t read the books since, maybe December of last year. (Probably when Champion’s Wrath came out, and I have read other books, so, yeah.) Also, Attendant Atticus, wouldn’t that just solidify Treasurer Devon’s saying that Augum is a flat-earther? (Talking about when Mr. Bronny says that the inhabitants of Sithesia only theorize about their world.)
Yes,I agree with Devon.I forgot about that thought augum made.I just remember it by re-reading them and enjoying them.Also discussing it also helps for me.Right now iIm on the 38th chapter of Legend(AudioBook format).I can just listen to them when I do school,chores,walks,etc as well as reading them.
I have thought about re-reading the books, but I’m kinda weird and I just can’t re-read books. I mean, I feel like I just already know the plot, and what happens so, why bother. The farthest I’ve gotten to re-reading the books was from Willowbrook to Sparrows Perch.
I didn’t memorize the quote, i just remembered where it kinda was and went flipping about Champions Wrath.
As for rereading, I’ve read the books an amount of times higher than four and less than six…
Let me guess did you read them 4 1/2 times or 5 1/2 times hmm (5 I’m guessing (:) I’ve read them and amount more then 8 and less then 10 and listened to them 2 times and almost done with listening to TaL again.Also 2,000! comments Bravo everyone!
…wow?… thats a lot of times… but yeah 2000 (and 1 more, now) comments!
I AM THE 2,002 COMMENT. I FEEL ACCOMPLISHED. ANYWAYS. HI.
I thought someone would bring this up. This is actually a potential future plotline I want to explore. Augum is not actually a flat earther. He is bound by the medieval mindset, which thinks in “planes”. But imagine, as a dragon, if he flew up high enough and saw the curve of his planet, or if he and the girls flew, as dragons, well beyond the continent of Sithesia? What would they find?
oh, just us here, casually discovering potential future plotlines like no biggy lol
that does sound like an interesting subject though
Okay, using my 8th grade Earth Science knowledge right now: Okay, so if Augm or one of the girls go over the horizon and over the curve of the earth, and someone watches, wouldn’t they think that they went over the earth’s edge? And they might think they died because they flew over the ‘edge’ AKA the earth’s curve. And the theory that earth is flat is because the in the olden days, people would watch their loved ones go on their boats, and go over the earth’s curve and it would look like they fell over the earth. Sorry if I spelt anything wrong. I tried to explain this simply. And if they were thought dead, what would happen to Sithesia? Thanks bye!
So I read books and have made test in mrs.stone. this test is based on knowledge found in arcane and riven. 1.how old was she in arcane. 2.what town was she born in. 3. How old was she when she got her 20th degree. (Sorry if I posted twice)
Good quiz.Let’s see if someone will take a stab at these :)
Alexander Titan, that is a good quiz, but unfortunately I know none of the answers :) Except maybe the 2nd one, I think it might be BLackhaven, though I am not sure. YOU KNOW WHAT? I’M GOING TO READ ALL THE BOOKS AGAIN!(After I finish John Grisham’s The Firm) Then, I will have a go at that quiz. :)
It is not black haven (at least not in thoose books I don’t know if it will be the same in the new books)
Short Quiz: 1.What Degree was the Trio when they defeated the SparkStone? 2.What Degree was Harvus? 3.The Servant The Harouns hired(the Son,I forgot his name) what was his element?
such strange words
Okay, lemme take a go at this. I have not read the books in a little bit, If I get two of them wrong or more I will go to the books and reread them.
2). No idea.
Well,it’s now been a week the answers are 5th,9th and Lightning,The boys name was Gabe by the way.
Well, I got two of the questions correct.
Lightning, his name was Gabe
I think that the trio was 5th degree when they defeated Lord Sparkstone.
But, I think that Harvus was 9th. . . I don’t know.
And I HAVEN’T READ THE BOOKS IN AWHILE SO. . .
So i tried to do what Atticus did to change my thing. So if this doesn’t work could someone explain how to do it?
You did it, it worked.
Short update for everyone:
I’m working through a TTS edit (Text-to-speech) of the book about Anna. That means a bot reads aloud the text to me, and I make any final changes. It’s a critical part of the process that demands maximum focus. Takes about two weeks. Then comes the proofread and formatting. Coming up on the docket, in no particular order:
– An announcement regarding a new contract signing with a major audiobook publisher
– A title reveal of the new book
– A cover reveal of the new book
– A blurb reveal of the new book
– A test Discord server to see if people like it better than commenting on this site
Still on schedule for an early December launch :)
Ok awesome! Thanks for the Update Mr.bronny (:
Wow, you’re busy, Mr. Bronny!
Been busy, im here yall! looking forward to this, sounds awesome!
I have been gone from the website for like a month. This has nothing to do with the website, however, I thought it was funny. So in English class, we have these bookmark thingies so that the teacher can track our reading. Mine is a mess. I have read twenty two books, and my teacher asked me why it looked a mess. I said ‘I read to many books.’ she said ‘I see.’ Overall, I think it was funny. you might not. I just wanted to share it. Hows school going for y’all?
That seems funny,Schools doing ok for me.Due to Covid Im doing Homeschool, schools kinda boring for me at the moment though. (:
1:How did harvest group teleport? He is 9th degree.
2:Why is senior arcaneoligist ning not senior arcaneoligist herzog if they are married?
3:In the heart farm(a.k.a.) August child hood who was holding the door shut?
1. I think he had a group teleport srcoll 2.I doubt ranks transfer through marriage like Arcaners it would make sense for Dragoon x to marry non arcane y and then arcaner y become a Dragoon.3.I think thats’ a mystery also I think it may have been the mother but I don’t know.Also do you want to still duel second degree?
I get all of those exept the first. The scrolls are like 50 words. He said like 7. And sure I would love to. I just don’t have much time.
I can do it any time(you can start).Also I just thought of this but I bet there’s a spell shortener or something you can do.
Correct on the third, Atticus. However, Harvus does not use a scroll, it seems to be a OTB Teleport along the lines of Dual Teleport (Harvus say Impetus Peragro BATO, as in second from Second Offensive). On the second, Ning is SA Ning instead of SA Herzog because Ning refuses the Herzog name. I don’t know where it is, but its when Augum, or the trio, or the party in FoaRD, is talking to Herzog and he calls Ning an old coot, etc.
Perhaps it’s a two person teleport OTB of course.Instead of a group teleport it’s instead a two person one.
I believe the old Coot part is in Clash when they first meet Herzog(Well Augum met Herzog first)And gave them cloaked access.Also Bato most likely means twice, two or some variation of that so it may mean instead of a regular it allows for one person(the caster) as well as another person to come.It must be a rare OTB as Mrs.Stone most likely doesn’t know else she would’ve used it when Haylee was trapped and Mrs.Stone had to cast group Teleport.As well as SA Ning is to prideful to ever allow it.
OK this forum venture is driving the team here up the wall, with no progress. How would everyone feel about a discord server instead?
Hmm,I think that sounds good.If you were to add some custom bots (That could add even more interactiveness if your able to get one of course)You could make one that’s fentwick-esqe.That seems like a great Idea
I’m not oppose to a discord server, it’s just I’ve never used it. . .
So.. I don’t know the difference. Its up to you!:)
What is the name of the world/planet that the trio lives in?
To the inhabitants of the continent of Sithesia, with its seven mighty kingdoms, Sithesia *is* their world. They have no concept of anything beyond, and only theorize on the shape of their world. It’s very much a medieval mindset. That said, certain warlocks know what lies beyond Sithesia, but keep those secrets to themselves lest they are denounced as heretics and hunted, even by their own kind . . .
Yes they briefly mentioned in FoaRD of what people thought or the world,as well as The outer lands.Which Mrs.Stone said she visited in the Arinthian Line.Though,what is the shape of the world?
HEAR THEE! HEAR THEE! I have returned after 2 months of quarintine! I shall not use the forum because I can’t access it. Also sorry about the duel Atticus.
It’s all good
Welcome back! Curious: why can’t you access the forum? Is it an impediment I can solve from my end?
P.S. I sent you an email regarding kits some of the others got. Email me when you get a chance.
Well, that was quick, someone mentioned it like… two days ago? Looking forward to using it, but I too cannot access it :(
A friend who knows WordPress is going to have a look at it tonight :)
Just wanted to report still no luck getting the forum up and running.
As has been long requested, I have finally implemented a forum for you guys! Simply click the “DISCUSSION” drop-down menu at the top and click on “Forum”. Or go here:
I’m learning as I go here setting it up so please be patient with me with regards to customization and stuff.
Hi, long-time (repeated) reader, love the series. I pop onto this site once in awhile to see if there is any news, but was wondering if there were any plans to implement an actual forum, vs this extremely long page w/ all posts. It can be tedious to search for certain information, and can’t help but think a forum and some pinned posts would make things easier. Thanks for all the hours of enjoyment, if nothing else!
I agree ,there is a reddit forum but it does not contain all the information that is in the discussion page our even the fan mail, both of which have tons of information.Though the reddit page is not as active.Though I guess as a project I could start sorting through information, which I’ll probably start doing. (:
Hi, Mr. Bronny I know that I should be writing this on the ART page, but, eh, whatever. One question I’ve been wondering is: am I on the ART list?
I checked, and the answer is no as I never received an application from you. Next season though!
I’ll make some inquiries and see if this is possible, as I agree, this format is tedious for everyone.
Good news: Yes, I can implement a forum! I’ll see if i can have it running today even :)
Here is a fun question:
If you could be any villain from both series, which one would you be any why?
I would be Katrina. (Is she really classified under, the category of villain.) Because… I feel like she is the only girl villain, and because who wouldn’t want to pilot the dragon thingy. (I totally forgot what the dragon was called.)
Ok my answer is…… Bowlander.Im just joking I could Never be him.Really though I would choose Magua,for a couoke of reasons.
1.She was a leyan
2.A god(they said she was the god of trickery i’m pretty sure)
3.She was a witch
4.Also we don’t know here backstory at ALL,I hear a ton of people saying they want to hear about atrius and jez and Mrs.Stone which I agree on.But if she had a story rthat would be awesome.
My second chose (maybe my first even)Is Occulus or the main occi. They would be super cool to hear and learn about.
Moira, don’t forget Erica. Countess Von Edgeworth was a villain too, but more politically-evil.
Magua was the Godess of Deciet.
Bruh, it’s gotta be Occulus. A master (I’m pretty sure) necromancer with a humongous army of undead, and defeater of six scion-wielders… awesome, and I loved his backstory.
Okay, so I know that I said that I was going to shun myself, because I missed my duel, but I just wanted to say this: Mr. Bronny, Marek and I got your package yesterday, and I wanted to say thank you for sending it! I really love the map and the book mark! And this morning, I tried to do the meditation. The letter was really cool too! Again, thank you so very much!
Agreed thank you for the package it is Awesome,I look forward to hanging them up and useing the meditation sheet.
Alos Moria Dont shun your self we can still do the duel,its not your fault the wifif was bad.(:
Very much agreeance here that that package was awesome! Loved everything in it, and the meditation sheet is proving useful already! Aaand I have a new favorite bookmark!
Yeah, don’t shun yourself Moira, I agree with Attendant Atticus
What’s the meditation sheet?
It was a package given to a few fans i believe it was contained a meditation sheet.You can see part fo it though by going to the FAQ page.
You’re most welcome, and glad you guys enjoyed the package! Well deserved :)
Hey so,Ive been wondering this for a while now,What was the book you made in your teens (the one that got corrupted and you lost the files)about?Really intrested like what was the genre,idea plot,etc?
The book was called “The Orwellian Night” which I later turned into a full-length music album. One of these days I will make all that music available to the public again.
Im a diehard fan of this series and recently on reddit I found out that Sever Bronny is planning on doing a complete redo for the Arinthian line series,Mind that this post was made over a year ago so it is a little out dated but I found this and its really intresting. Link is below
Ac complete redo for the Arinthian line’s cover art i mean
Thanks for this info
It seems to me like we’ll see the triooooo!
Aw, yeah! So cool! Wait, so if he said that a year ago, does that mean he still plans on doing so? Maybe once he’s done with Anna Atticus Stone’s Book . . .
This is actually in the works right now, but don’t get your hopes up as it may not bear fruit. There are . . . complications (it is quite the trial).
Could you update the lore page Mr.Sever Bronny
by adding when people have died like terra titan or the grizzly,adding people’s birthdays like olaf,jengo,haylee,ect
I’ll put this note on the to-do list :)
Hey everyone!! Sorry it’s been so long. My school year started and it’s just been very busy. But anyway, I’ve finished Bridget’s theme (finally). This one was definitely the hardest. In fact, This is the complete second rewrite of her theme. So yeah, it’s been rough. Anyways, here’s Bridget’s birthday, I hope you enjoy!!
As always, I’m open to any constructive criticism and advise :)
That’s really good man, I liked what you did in parts like measure 8!
Here’s a question
How do you think you can change your stripes to go to the other arm,We know that A lady from the Leyan library was able to (Sorry I forgot her name).So how do you do it?
Also is it possible to have you stripes go on different arm like say your an 18th degree could you split them up and do 9 on you main hand and 9 and your left?
Sorry if it’s acting weird I just changed my profile picture
About splitting your stripes, Mr. Bronny would have to answer that one.
As for the first question, stripes appear on the dominant arm, so most often the right. The Leyan, Akeya I believe, switched them, but she had lost her right arm so I think her left became dominant then so they switched to there.
hey i don’t think you can divide your rings to make them fit them on both hands. BUT there must be a Leyan spell to help transfer the rings to the other hand
*Ahem* check the photos page ;)
Pretty excited tho about Anna’s book in the blog!
Would you want to join a new guild,titled Arcane Archivists of Solia,or A.A.S* for short.
If you can check three or more of these questions below then you will be PERFECT for this guild.
1. Are you interested in the lore of Solia and the surrounding areas?🔲
2. Are you fond of tales of Solian Adventurers such as Augum Arinthian Stone,Leera Matilda Jones,Bridget Burns*?🔲
3. Have you spent countless hours looking into the lore of Solia and the surrounding Areas?🔲
4. Do you enjoy doing discussions of such tales(Cite Question 2)?🔲
The next two questions are just out of curiosity
5. Who created the Antioc Library in BlackHaven?🔲
6. How did BlackHaven get it’s name?🔲
Ask for more info by Contacting Attendant Atticus Monroe
*It may or may not be a coincidence that the acronym of this guild is the same initials as The fabled Anna Atticus Stone as well as Dragon Augum Arinthian Stone
Yes to all of these questions and the person who created the antioc library was theadores winkfield (did I spell that right?) And blackhaven got its name because Haven was heavily burned by dragons so they renamed the city Blackhaven.
Correct and Correct again,I’m making the lore to this group soon which I’ll will post I’ll try my best to make it not affect the Main story lines
I suppose that it is a yes to everything. However, for Question number three, I do not spend countless hours looking into the lore, but I do like to look into the lore from time to time.
HI I’M BACK Y’ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!
Alright, sounds cool, check check checkedy check. The Antioc Library was founded by Theodorus Winkfield, a Dragoon as well if I’m not mistaken, after purchasing the castle for a mere chest of gold.
Blackhaven earned it’s name due to the original city, Haven, being burnt by rouge Arcaner Dragons, who later founded the Whisper Blades, simultaneously ending the Second Great Peace (Second I think)
Mr. Bronny, I was wondering, Marek said that he might be getting a rank soon. Is there any conformation on what the rank is yet? Merci! Also, Marek and I have showed our elder brother Max the series, I believe he is on Valor. And if I am being completely honest, he is becoming a hardcore fan. He already has declared himself a twentieth degree master air warlock. Or in his words, “I have become an air warlock. That lives on an floating island in the Solian Sea. Whose favorite dueling spell is using Arcane drain on his opponents to drain the air from their lungs.” In my words, “Lovely.”
Yes, I’m currently thinking about what to title the next set of ranks. A few of you qualify for ranks, and Atticus, who already has one, has long qualified for a rpomotion. I just have to settle on the names of the ranks, as I want to make sure they fit the context of the website and my world.
Has any one read the I am four book,if not I would recommend it it’s about a GOOD alien race who had to retreat to earth as there home planet had been destroyed by a BAD alien race who seeks to conquer part of the universe,it’s called the Lorien legacies series and the good aliens have legacies which are powers basically they gain over time,great series 7 books in it
Great series! Read all of them and tried to read the new books thats a spinoff series Pittacus came out with but they don’t have the same feel but yeah the first series is amazing. One of the first books I started reading in middle school
Sorry I’m just SUPER curious,when will your next event be or a giveaway like the custom maps you gave away to a few of the fans?Ive been a big fan for a long time and have read and reread all of your books 7 times and 4 for champions wrath.Thank you for entertaining me for so long!
Good question. I’ve been maintaining a low profile so that I can get stuff done, but I’ve also been meaning to do another round of sendouts for the hardcore fans. No promises yet, but it’s something that has indeed been on my mind. Especially for the people participating here and in the arena.
So,I’ve recently moved and when I was moving I noticed something on my wall I haven’t before (My entire room walls and ceiling are covered in maps).I noticed in Tasmania,Australia that there’s this mountain called…Mount Barrow.No kidding check it out your self
But Sever bronny did you know about this?
I did not! Fascinating, and good eye!
Favorite villain would be Lividius Stone. My favorite scene is when Orion first became activated ( it was cool that Orion was a dragon not some powerful weapon on wheels) favorite spell? Good question. I have to say Mirrior Of The Dragon. Also what happened to Bolander when he escaped? All we know is that he ran away to warn the Legion.
Okay, to answer the question about Bolander: I am 99.9% sure that at the end of Champion’s Wrath, (In the epilogue that is.) that it is mentioned Bolander was to go on trial. Also just wanted to say: Marek and I have gotten our elder brother, Max, to read the AL series. He has declared himself a twentieth degree master air warlock. Or in his words: “A fart warlock.” Real Mature, Max.
Wait, I had no idea if you read all of the books yet! So sorry if you hadn’t and that was a spoiler! I am a terrible person!
Thank You. Also how did the herk not die? The undead and the legion were everywhere at the time so how did he not get turned into a Walker or a wraith or some undead monster?
