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!

  1. NEWS!
    1:Everyone knows this is fan fiction and wont be published.
    2. Your in the book now Marek! You will just get added in a bit as frieands with 1 of us. Not saying who. Hope you enjoy!

  2. New Charlotte backstory:
    Looks like: I’m just going to make her look like me. Blonde hair, Blue, eyes, tall, wears glasses. Skinny. She has two ear piercings. White skin. Freckles down her nose and half of her cheek. And a red dyed strip down her hair.
    Age: 17
    Warlock element and degree: Fire warlock, 9th degree.
    Charlotte lives in Blackhaven with her brother and sister. Her mother and father died in the legion war when all three of them were fourteen. Charlotte is the eldest triplet. Then Charity, and then Emil. She and her siblings are all 9th degree fire warlocks. Except for her brother. He is a healer. Charlotte lost her siblings in the Canterran war (not dead lost, physically lost them while she was fighting people.) she then found them all when looking for dead body’s on the battlefield. Her sister lost her left arm and her brother was unscathed. Charlotte is a semi popular girl who is seventeen. She is a very good warlock and can do many extension spells. Charlotte’s best friend who she has been friends with ever since she was little, is a 9th degree water warlock named North Jackson. Charlotte comes from a noble family, and old money. Charlotte is a very nice person, and is kind to all. If you make her mad, you will be sore for weeks from the beating she will give you, (dueling of course). She likes to eat chips and bread, and cake, and basically all carbs in general. She also likes to wear black underneath her robe. And when not in the academy learning, she is at her house either studying or trying to read a new book, or trying to break up a fight between her siblings.
    Well, I hope that you liked the new backstory. I might add more stuff along the way. Sorry it is so long.

    1. Now, I know that Leo Arthur won’t be included in Kaden’s book, but it’s just fun to make up backstory’s. Here’s mine (REVISED)

      Name: Leo Arthur

      Birthplace: Crimson Tooth

      Age: 16

      Looks: Bit rounded, reddish-orange hair, and many freckles

      Biography: Get ready, it’s sad, and long so buckle in. . . Leo was only 10 when The Legion War started and ravaged Solia, and got dangerously close to Canterra’s borders. However, he was lucky, Crimson Tooth untouched, he, himself unscathed. His mom was killed in the. Canterran war when he was 11, because she herself was Solian, and she had met Leo’s father in Solia. After that, both Leo and his father were dispirited, and his father joined the Canterran army, Leo, having no choice but to follow his father to Solia, tagged along. He learned that he could move things with his mind, and knew he must keep such a thing a secret in a Canterran camp, where he was staying with other refugee kids whose parents had gone to war. He learned of the Academy of Arcane Arts, and decided he could get answered there. Leaving camp in the night he made his journey from the Ruins of The Malevant, and it took 35 days to get to Blackhaven from there. He went to the front of the Academy, but he wasn’t allowed in. He learned there was a tuition fee, to get there, and it’d be even harder because of the Canterran Occupation. So he began doing odd jobs, and by the time the war was over he was in the Academy, safe. Present day he is a very powerful Lighting Warlock, 9th Degree. He isn’t one who duels much, but one stand down from a good fight when one is asked for. He missed his parents, he presumed his father died in the war, and, obviously his mother was killed towards the “Ancient Blood Debt” and all that Path hogwash he didn’t believe in. So, there you have it! Oh, one more thing: He’s also A writer for 𝚃𝙷𝙴 𝙰𝙲𝙰𝙳𝙴𝙼𝚈 𝙷𝙴𝚁𝙰𝙻𝙳 and he’s a good writer, maybe even better than Cry!

    2. Just wanted to add one more thing! Charlotte is in the 𝙳𝚁𝙰𝙼𝙰 𝙲𝙻𝚄𝙱!

    1. I saw that you’ve asked this earlier. Since Mr. Bronny isn’t here often, I’ll tell you what he’s said to this same question from others. He’s very busy with writing/editing and that leaves little time for the spells list, and even the discussions page. Besides, the spells list might not be entirely fleshed out, Mr. Bronny still might have empty slots in the elemental or standard spells.

    2. Mr. Bronny is to busy right now with Anna Stone’s book, so some of your suggestions will be missed, KForce. Don’t take it personal!

      1. Nah it’s fine. This is the only author page where it get replied to some of the time. The rest, none

    3. Congrats to those who were chosen; sad 😞 I wasn’t picked, but Kaden chose those who he thought would be interesting in the book, so I’m glad Devon and MOIRA were chosen. . .

      1. I dice rolled picked you were one and I rolled 2 and 3. If that makes it better.

      1. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!! Yay! Thank you so much! Oh, also I give you permission to do anything you want to my character. Also, I didn’t put this in the original backstory, but Charlotte is a triplet. Her sister is named Charity. And her younger brother, his name is Emil. Charlotte is the oldest then Charity, then Emil. Her mother’s name was Thea. Her father’s name was Sean. They all are fire fire warlocks. Also, Marek asked me to ask you if you are writing it in a google doc and to ask you if we could see it so far. Not as an editor. Only as a viewer. Thanks!

        Thanks Kaden, looking forward to this! Einar would enjoy NOT being killed, but do whatever you want. I’ll get back to you on Einar’s backstory, it’ll take some work.

      3. I was totally NOT killing in first page.hehe. but I will show give me sec.

  3. Kaden, you said a couple of days ago that on Tuesday, you would pick the names of the characters for people in the book that you are making. Have you decided who the characters are?

  4. Here is just a fun little question that I came up with:
    If you could buy any three things in the entire AL or FoARD series, what would you buy?
    Keep in mind that you can buy ANYTHING. ANYTHING. Even the most ridiculous thing! Have fun with it!
    1). I would buy the fire Scion.
    2). I would also buy a lifetime supply or Canterran chocolate.
    3). I would most likely buy a little puppy. I would name that puppy ‘Lil Mimi. After a television show that love.
    (I feel like I spelt Canterran wrong. Did I?)
    Also, I feel like mentioning this, Marek and I are making a picture of Leera. We started it yesterday but then I was writing something on the outside of the page and I COMPLETELY DELETED THE ENTIRE THING. I am crying on the inside. Keep in mind this is on my iPad, so I might be able to recover the drawing from the cloud. So, wish us luck trying to make another one. Or wish us luck trying to recover the drawing. It will be fun. YAY.

    1. Here’s what I’d buy:
      1.) The Lightning Scion. cuz why not?
      2.) An Arcaner Shield (Is that possible?)
      2.) Crimson Tooth, Leo’s hometown, so I could possibly make it better, like shutting down some gangster businesses and making the citizens happy!

    2. Ok,mines a bit over the top

      1 Arcane power so I can cast spells

      2 All of sithesia and rule over it nicely and not kill half the population or spread a cult around.

      3 Access to ley

      I wouldn’t buy ley. Because you just CANNOT,so ya.

      1. Shoot,I’m changing the 3rd one I’m making it so all witches,demons,everything in oculus castle and every undead thing has to follows my control or I could just do a witch either way I could g t access to ley without doing anything because the witch is really powerful.

      2. Argh forgot about endraga ra well,I guess now that,I’m lord of sithesia I’m getting some lifetime canterran, and with all my knowledge and power I’m asking a witch to let everyone have infinite canterran chocolate.

      3. Rightfully so, Attendant. You’ll be a great emperor at this rate!

    3. 1) Castle Arinthian, or maybe Northspear (either with Keeper of the Keys privileges).

      2) The Antioc Library (wouldn’t change much, just give free access to all except for the most dangerous stuff, like necromancy. Don’t worry Attendant Atticus, you’re not fired). Also, just want all that knowledge.

      3) Like Moira, life-time supply of Canterran chocolate (you spelt it right Moira) because duh.

    4. Attendant Atticus, if you were the leader of Sithesia I (As my character Charlotte.) would follow you if you needed support. But…… only…… IF YOU GIVE ME CHOCOLATE!

  5. I am making a book taking place in sithesia but does not connect to the story line. There is a contest. Two lucky contestants will get there character in my thing. Sign up by replies and saying your ARENA character in my book

    P.S. I will do some stuff with backstories and such. Submit by tuesday.

    1. Wait, do I have to create a backstory? I am just going to guess and say that if my character gets the part then I create a backstory. It will be TEN TIMES LONGER then the first one then. Anyways, Charlotte Emerald Dreads. Nickname, “The Phoenix”. Yay! *insert “yay” Bitmoji here.

  6. I have done it. A feat of legend. Just kidding! I have finished Campions Wrath. Thus completing the FoARD series and the AL series. Which also means I have completed the Sever Bronny series. MUHAHAHA! I am super excited to read Mrs. Stone’s book when it is available (So is Marek).

    1. Good job! And now you get the enjoyment of… reading them like fifty more times! YAY!

  7. Hello Sever, I have .a question, to get your degree, does it have to be given but a warlock higher that you? If so, then how did Anna Stone get her 20th degree?

    1. Ok,I’m just going take a stab at it

      So as you know convey is a higher degree spell(I forget what degree)which makes it so that if you know it you can do the ceremony and all of that stuff,on this topic I like Devon’s idea of how the arcane ether won’t give you a stripe if you haven’t earned it.

      Also the way I learned about tAL was through my mom,she’s an author and she knew him and I just finished a ton of series,so I was lost.She remembered him and then I read the whole series via kindle and I blew through the series and then read FoaRD.

      1. Convey Degree is a 17th degree Spell of Legend, if I’m right. This means Anna would get her 20th degree from someone of at least 17th degree, but not necessarily higher. We’ve only seen it used by warlocks of higher degree because the trio hasn’t attended a ceremony for someone achieving a degree beyond the 17th in which case the warlock casting Convey Degree could be the same degree or less as the recipient.
        Wow, big words today.

        I came across tAL because my mom wanted me to stop rereading HP (18 times y’all!) and LOTR (9 times). Made me read other books, but they all sucked, so she got me this for my bday, and now I am obsessed.

  8. So I saw a couple of people post how they came about these series so I decided to do the same.
    For whatever reason I wasn’t able to go to the library one time and so my mom just decided to grab some books for me. She grabbed all three (Arcane, Riven, and Valor) that the library had and I, in my usual amount of patience, read all three in a few days. after that, I decided to buy the first series on kindle, having absolutely no clue that there was a next series. After I finished the series I frantically googled when his next book was coming out, and to my surprise I found that there were already two books in another series and a third one on the way!! So I read all of those, waited not so patiently for Champions Wrath, and here we are. Best books I’ve ever read :)

    How did the rest of you find his books?

    UPDATE: I have more or less finished Leera’s Theme and have sent it to Mr. Bronny for any suggestions and approvement to post it. I’m quite pleased with this one ;)

    1. Well, I came across the series because of Marek. Thank you, I guess. The series is a lot of fun to read. Also I am about I would say, around a third of the way through Champions Wrath. Yay!

      1. WOW!!!! Your a faster reader then me! It took me two days to read champians wrath and 2 week for al of his books!!!!!!

    1. Yeah, yeah, happens to me all the time. I’ve added Marek and Moira, if you give me your name I’ll add you Kaden.

      1. What are you guys talking about,I have zero clue what it is?

      1. I ain’t laughin’, ‘specially when mine is MightyLoaf0! I’ll add you though

      2. Also, that implies the existence of at least 64 other HandsomePants people.

  9. Sithesia news! Many people are disappearing around sithesia. Some names are:Amy Elysium,Ben stonewall,and Alexandria, and many more! This is kaden”Wildfire” reporting weekly.

    1. Update. More recent disappearances are. Aeris and the brothers Adrisitus and Tylor.

      1. Heyyy sorry, got back from a family reunion yesterday. I’m back and happy to report that I’ve started work on Leera’s Theme!! I should also be able to play the piano at the necessary level for augums theme soon :)

      2. Heyyy! The first person to return is the amazing musician himself, Adrisitus!

    2. I agree with Anna, known to you guys as The Walrus. If it wasn’t for my mom searching “Books Like Harry Potter”, I wouldn’t even know this series existed, and I wouldn’t know you guys!

      1. For me it was “Books Like the Lord of The Rings” but yeah I relate too. Also… Anna… not suspicious at all…

  10. Sent kaden a friend request in fortnite. Uh, just to let you know, I went back a couple of comments ago.

      1. Impetus perango I snap and apear behind you. Shut that foul mouth! Voudus lingua! Paralyzing carcusa cemente!

      2. Walrus i challeng you to a duel. Warlock verse wizard! Use any spell must roll i use my 2nd degree! Your time. Prepare to lose. Not trying to be rude but still.

      3. Imagine having an author whose sequel to her greatest series is a screenplay (COUGH J.K.Rowling COUGH). We have actual books in the Bronny department.

      4. Well you guys might like this book series better, and I totally respect that, and I’m sure it’s a good series. But, let’s not forget that in the ‘About’ section of the book says that the Harry Potter series help inspire these books. As it also says “Seriously. Because if it hadn’t been for HP (J.K. Rowling), I’d never have dared”. And just one more thing: Sever Bronny listed also that part of his favorite sagas are Harry Potter. Just to remind you all :)

      5. We aren’t saying HP sucks, just that Sever Bronny’s books are like a bazillion times better.

      6. I wasn’t saying that you were saying we said they suck (ah, yes, English), I was just clarifying that we weren’t in case there were mixed interpretations.

      1. For your information Devon some people enjoy screenplays, and I personally enjoyed The Cursed Child and so do many others. And no, I’m not going to “duel” you Kaden, I’m too lazy to try and figure out how to do that.

      2. That’s okay, we all have problems to work on Walrus. (Joke, please don’t be offended.)

  11. SUP Y’ALL I’M BACK! I was at a youth camp with my church and felt moved to put here: Jesus love’s you all. If y’all wanna talk ’bout Jesus and that kinda stuff, we can trade emails or do it over a game, just tell me.

    PS, for those who know about Christianity’s workings, I got baptized yesterday!

    1. So I have been meaning to post this for a little while, but I finished all of the books in the AL series, and I have just finished Honors Price yesterday. So, yay me! I have been no stop reading and I have to say, I. LOVE. THE. BOOKS. They are such a fun read! I am going to make it my mission the tell everyone I know about the books. Muhahahaha!

  12. Mr bronny. Serious question. Can. You. Show. Us. A. Picture. Of. Your. Lego. Castle?

  13. Question. Do any of you play fortnite? If you do,
    Marek: MalkCheese
    Me: Sparkle MJ5
    We will add you.

    1. Yes will do. But only sever bonny stuff. Marek corrected me last time. But he told me his already.

  14. Or how about 4:00? That would be… Hum. Lets see, 1:00 for you? Whta ever time you wnat. Sorry about the green prfoille picture. Im trying an new email.

      1. Grace is my best friend. Hence why I said, “Grace has entered, Marek.” Basically telling Marek that Grace was here. She is my best friend.
