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. I would love you to make a game of it if a movie or game or anything ever happens please tell

    P.S. my name is is kaden
    P.P.P.S My favorite spell is centaro hope i spelled it right cause you coulde hand 3 3rd degree or lower warlocks without arcanery!

    1. Perhaps a movie franchise will materialize in the next decade or so, who knows, Kaden (it’s a long and laborious process that requires a metric ton of funding and belief). Glad you like Centarro. Hint regarding that spell: Ordinaries like you and I have the ability to access that spell via the power of concentration ;)

  2. i want to know if they can make a imediat way to get rid of the predator so more people can turn into dragons.



    I cant believed esha died! its soooooooooooooooooooooo unfair but i am also glad it wasnt Ms stont or the blackest howl! but great bokk love it!

  4. POTENTIOL SPOILER! SPOILER!SPOILER!SPOILER!SPOILER! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I cant put this book down especialy at the battle of the tallows! PLove you sever bronny!(: (: (: (:

      1. Well I’d narrate but I don’t have a voice for it haha. I have a long commute to and from work(3 hours round trip) and that’s how I flew through your first books so quickly! I just don’t have the time to sit and read, so audiobooks is how I have to do my reading haha!! I can definitely parrot others by saying your books would make amazing screen play, if not the big screen maybe a tv series so it can capture ALL of the intricate details! Best of luck and it is a truly great series!

  5. I think my favorite scene, and one that could be amazing in a movie would be the battle at Hangmans Rock.

  6. Can you make this to a movie or video game i would really like to see when augum got the settling! or be able to cast spells it would be SOOOOOOOOOO COOL!!


  8. This is a question i feel like people should have asked by now: Are there healing dragons? If not how do
    healing element worlocks get the dragon simul?


  10. Just finished the new book and I am feeling so many emotions. One thing I’m sure many people will ask you about is the major event told to Augum by Ning at the end(trying not give away too much here) . Please tell me you already have something in mind to fix it. Besides that I loved every second of it. I spent every spare moment I had reading this book and in so pleased with how it turned out (besides the one part I mentioned to be honest I’m veeeeery upset about that). Thanks for all the work you do Mr. Bronny! Cant wait to read whatever comes next

    1. I finished as well ,ending was so sad I really hope Bridget’s family can inherit it or maybe adopting and accepting them in the old way would work like how Katrina became the daughter of the king.Super good book though I really want to know more about Leland if he’s an apprentice then ,he’s going to be super strong.

  11. I have a couple questions here:

    When someone hits their ceiling but they continue to practice their spells could they get those spells to be stronger that their actual degree? (for example if Augum hit his ceiling now but continued training telekinesis will he eventually get it to 20th degree level?)

    Do you have any plans for the trio to learn Soundtrap? Mrs.Stone mentioned teaching it to them in legend but she planned it for the day after they got drunk so she did not teach it to them.

    After the trio leave Ley in Champion’s Wrath will they return to Ley without becoming a Leyan?

    Final question, do you have plans of Augum becoming King of Solia after Fury of a Rising Dragon series or after the next series? Or will Augum still refuse but be offered the throne again?

    1. Spellcasting is a muscle that always needs maintenance simply to retain the knowledge.Hitting one’s ceiling typically means one has hit the limit of one’s understanding / comprehension, as well as one’s ability to continue going to the gym of the mind, for a certain spell required for the next degree. SO yes, one could theoretically continue to get better with one spell, but that very discipline is all that is needed to break through on other spells–that is, unless one cannot grasp the complex concept, at which point one would be out of luck.

      Sound Trap is a very difficult spell, but if they come across a competent mentor there is no reason for the trio to learn the spell properly.

      >After the trio leave Ley in Champion’s Wrath will they return to Ley without becoming a Leyan? Final question, do you have plans of Augum becoming King of Solia after Fury of a Rising Dragon series or after the next series? Or will Augum still refuse but be offered the throne again?

      Too early to say on all counts :)

    1. Hmm. I build mine as I go, filling in details as I need them. But I also have a lot of foundational grounding in building worlds because I used to be a Game / Dungeon Master for tabletop role-playing games like Rifts and D&D. Those books are rich with resources for building worlds. I also used the library a lot, and read and research medieval history in my spare time, taking extensive notes in binders that have grown thick over the years.

      Above all, have fun with your world. The big question then becomes, what would YOU like to see in it? Good luck!

  12. Hello!
    i was wondering if you could fill in the missing spells in the spell page?
    also, do you know what you will write after book4? i hope you write about the future, like when they hit thier ceiling, of when they get married, etc.
    thanks, Josh

    1. Hello, Josh! Yes, the spell list is on the to-do list, and I and my team will be working on it in due course, most likely after the launch.

      As to what I’ll be writing next, I will eventually make an announcement on that very subject. Thanks for your patience :)

  13. I haven’t seen anyone else do this kind of question on here, so I’ll take a crack at it:

    What scene from ANY of the books would you MOST want to see in movie form?


    Mine would be the scene where Augum first discovers he has The Settling. The dark forest, the fear in his enemies eyes, and the lightning casting a blue glow over everything… chills, guys. Literal chills.

    Comment below on your answer!

    1. I have two favorite scenes. The first would be Augum’s fight in the arena with Robin and Augum’s fight as a dragon for the first time.

    2. I really like that one also. I’d have to say that my favorite part was in Legend when Augum inherits the scion from Mrs. Stone at the Black Castle and he goes up against some necromancers and totally demolishes them and then disowns Lord Sparkstone. It gets my heart rate up every time.

    3. I don’t really have a favorite scene, honestly. Basically any scene that has Augum absolutely annihilating everything in a warpath, favorites include, but are not limited to, when he gets the scion (previously mentioned) and destroys a bunch of necromancers, when he is fighting through the Academy against the soldiers, any scene when he uses his telekinesis to devastating effect, and when the settling happened (also previously mentioned) and he obliterated the Canterrians.

    4. My favorite scene would have to be (ATTENTION SPOILERS FOR THIS IS INFORMATION FROM THE O5 COUNCIL) the scene in the gladiator arena with Robin (I think that’s his name can’t remember well) getting shanked by all the ghosts and also with his aunt lighting herself on fire while in slow motion due to centarro.

    5. What a wonderful question, and it’s awesome to see so many responses! As for myself, I’d want to see the arena battle between Augum and Robin in a movie, but i’d also like to see all of my work on film =P

  14. Hello Mr. Bronny! When can the advance reader team expect to get access to the book? I’ve been dying to get my hands on it and I know release is only a few weeks away so should we expecting within the next week?

      1. Does this mean the book’s getting released in the next month or so? If so, will it be released on ebook? I usually read on my Kindle :)

  15. I was wondering is there a ranking system to unnameables and how would you measure their power. Also it would be nice to see a world wayyyy a.father the trio and maybe they become unnamable legends? With some new hero’s and as I mentioned in my contact the fall of a golden age. I just thought that would be interesting. But Mrs. Stones childhood is veryyy interesting.

  16. Does anyone else want the Trio accept invitations to Ley, and eventually become Unnameables of Friendship or something like that?
    No? Just me? Ok…

    1. A situation where the trio have turned into Leyans and Mrs stone is mentoring them would be cool

  17. Hi Sever, just wanted to say that the trios adventures really helped me out emotionally when i had to move countries and honestly all authors feel lackluster when compared to you!

    On another note i think it would be awesome if the trios next adventure would take place in a world where the continent of sithesia is thriving in trade and the trio are celebrated as being the hero of not just Solia but the entire continent.

    Also i think that an overwhelming, unknown outside force would be a really cool addition to the next books story, as Mrs Stone has mentioned life beyond Sithesia.

    1. I’m glad the trio gave you a boost, Dan! Its tough moving, especially countries. I’ve done it a few times in my youth with my parents, and it was always a shock (though also exciting).

      Oh, and rest assured, I’ve got BIG plans for our beloved trio, just you wait ;)

      Did you have any favorite characters? Any favorite scenes? Always curious.

      1. Wow we have more in common than i thought!

        My favourite character (other than the trio) would have to be Haylee but Tyneon (the guy who died saving his grandad in book 1) has a special place in my heart.

    1. Sorry, Ben, but Champion’s Wrath will be published suddenly with little warning, most likely early December ish. But if I come up with a concrete date I’ll let everyone know asap ;)

  18. Hi Sever! The AL and FoARD series are my favorite books and nothing even comes close! (except for Wings of Fire by Tui T. Sutherland). I read all of 1.5 million words in about two months. I hated when the Von Edgeworths stole the castle and I hated Robin so I was really happy when he got defeated by everyone he had killed. I think Laudine is a really neat character and was sad when she got left behind in the dome. I know you probably get this alot but I want to see a detailed list of spells including all of the incantations, thoughts, motions, etc. I would also like to explore the world in which they reside ‘cuz the farthest they get out of Sithesia is Crimson Tooth and that’s still in it. I also would like a list of creatures like the bears of Ohm and the things in Endraga Ra. I also wanted to know how long you think it will be before you finish every possible thing about your world including if you sell rights to a movie or game. ;}

    P.S. my name is Kagen.

    1. Hello Kagen!

      I’m honored that you love my work so much! Laudine is a joy to write, and she will have a part to play in Champion’s Wrath. She is one of those characters (there are so many!) that I wish I had more time for.

      I’m working with a young lady (who is also a reader) to slowly get the site upgraded, so stay tuned on your requests; perhaps I can fill out a few in due course.

      As to how long it will be finishing my world, hmm, that’s difficult if not impossible to answer. I know I will continue to write in it for a long time to come though! I have LOADS of ideas :)

      Thank you for your support, Kagen :)

  19. I’ve re-read both series twice and just love the world you created! Can’t wait for the final book of the series. Id love to see what happens to the trio in the future and if any of them reach mastery in their element

    1. Thank you so much,, Lucas, I am grateful for your support and glad you’re enjoying my work. Did you have any favorite scenes? Any favorite characters? I’m always curious :)

        I’ve got to say my favorite scene was when Augum tunes to the dragon and when he’s able to actually turn into a dragon. It just feels like its such a huge moment for the trio!

  20. Only half way through Burden’s Edge so far favorite scene:
    Robin getting punched in nose I hate bullies
    Character favorite: Leera because I admire ladies that tell you how it is no beat around bushes
    Light heart scene favorite: when Aug’s Great grandfather passes. I just recently lost my grandpa
    Favorite villain: Whisper Blades cause I like Ninjas
    Favorite spell: reveal to see tendrils of magic I like puzzles so would be cool to see on screen
    Favorite thrilling scene: warlock tournament. I’m very competitive
    Final note:
    This is Arthur I hope Steve loves your books and we get to see this on screen someday!

  21. I am trying to build a village in Minecraft, and I wanted to base it off of Solia. (I named my sword Burden’s Edge, my horse Tobias, and my breastplate Augum’s Defender.) I have to ask, what it the architecture like in Solia? How are the basic buildings in Blackhaven made of? What about rural villages? What are some sighs of wealthy living? If you could answer these questions, it would help me out a lot.

    1. P.S. I was wondering if you could give me some info on the Unnameables. I want to design shrines/temples and put them on my land. If you can’t tell me their names, (they are Unnameables, of course) then can you tell me what they preside over? Ex. Unnameable of _______
      Thanks again,

      1. I am no Sever Bronny by I believe Kratos is one of the Unnameables, in my mind and he would preside iver wisdom, and I believe the God of War was mentioned by one of the Dreadnoughts

    2. Solian architecture is basically medieval architecture, so googling any sorts of buildings for medieval times should suffice nicely :)

      As for the Unnameables, they each represent certain parts of faith. For example, Krakatos (he goes by many names through history) represents wisdom and intelligence. There is a god of famine, one for crops, wine, etc. But complicating things is the fact that each kingdom has its own Unnameables, and those gods have changed through history (and as William pointed out, the Rivicans had their own pantheon, as did every species throughout history, creating a vast and rich dynamic). I have not delved too deeply into the subject though because I’m saving it for a possible future book :)

      1. Sounds like I’m good with just making up my own! (except for Orion and Krakatos of course.)

  22. Quick question, I was wondering what was prince gavinius’ element before necromancy, and what was that one unnameables element, because both were never mentioned

    1. You know, that’s a great question, one I hadn’t even pondered. Because of how large my world is, I oft come up with only the necessary details I need for that moment in time, as otherwise it’s easy to get bogged down in writing backstory instead of doing the writing.

      So what element do you see him having been?

      1. I would like to think that gavinius would have either been fire or lightning, and the unnameable would have been either air or lightning. I think that somebody’s element effects their temperament, like most librarians at the library of antioc are air, most evil warlocks are necromancy, ect, so these seem to be a fit. just a thought

    2. Wasn’t Prince Gavinius’s element Ice prior to Necromancy? I might be mistaken, but I swear I remember reading that when he visited Senior Arcaneologist Lien Ning.

      1. ok, I just really want the completed list along with necromatic spells. but I wont rush you.

  23. FYI, I’m all in favor of following the trio in upcoming series. You could add some AAS flashback in the same storyline…. I think that organically putting the flashbacks into the same story will keep familiarity but also introduce her youth.

  24. • I was also thinking, Augum becoming the king of Solia would actually harm Solia and the Arcaners.
    ○ With the Arcaners it would paint them as a Solian order of knights rather than a neutral organization of knights.
    ○ As for Solia, Augum is way too powerful and too revered as a hero to be king without either accidentally abusing his power without even realizing it, other working on his behalf abusing his power, or people simply letting him get away with things that he would rather they not let him.
    § As well, his level of power would probably cause some very serious political issues with the other kingdoms and place Solia in danger after what could be called the honeymoon period of saving all of the kingdoms.
    • Frankly, I think that it would be more interesting, and make more sense after everything that Solia has been through with either psychotic kings and weak ones that sell them out, if Solia tried to set up some sort of parliament in place of a king.
    ○ So far, pretty much every corrupt politician that the trio have encountered has been someone born into entitlement or someone working for someone corrupt and entitled.
    § So, it would be interesting for them to encounter and deal with someone who rose to power from nothing and is using their political power to forward some personal agenda or simply to profit themselves.
    § It would also be interesting to see in this new government how Arcaners will be included and how involved they would be allowed to be.

      1. Whats to stop the politicians going corrupt? The archers might stop some of it but power corrupts everyone

      2. I wasn’t thinking of this as a corruption proof government or anything like that. I was thinking of this as something new that the trio have never dealt with. They would still be dealing with corruption, but it will be in a different format than what they normally used to and come out them in different ways than what they have dealt with before.

  25. in response to your question on Mr. Bronny’s latest post, I think that Mr. Bronny should make another series on the trio. I came to this decision because most writers I have seen eventually change their main characters or just stop publishing, and it really would be refreshing to not have both of those happen. I have read both the arinthian line and fury of a rising dragon series at least twice and am a very avid reader, and I must say that frankly I have never and probably will never find another author like Mr. Bronny. Remember this is just a suggestion and I hope he sees it.

      1. Hello Steve! He never pursued that avenue, and thus it withered. It was a lesson in arcanery, how things can die off if not researched and expounded upon. Mrs. Stone talked a little about that concept :)

  26. Hello Sever. I really love your books and I have read all of them at least 3 times! But, after re-reading them, I have a few questions.
    1. Can you put the names of all the neat extensions and otb spells that augum learned?
    2. After finishing FOARD #4, what will you write about? I would like to see what happened in the future like when they hit their ceiling etc.

    1. i meant *Can you put the names and uses of all the neat extensions and otb spells that augum learned?

      1. Also, can you make a sene where a healer has to use his/her armor,first offensive ,shield,and weapon. Because I would like to see that.

        Sorry for all the questions, I just really like the series

      2. No trouble at all. Yes that is the longterm plan for the website, to have an entire list of spells, including the extensions and off-the-book spells. I’ll be bringing somebody on to help me with this task as my time and energy is mostly on the writing and editing. But yeah, there’s an appetite for it I wish to satiate. As to the healer scene, I’ll see what I can do, but you’ll have to wait a while ;)

        Glad you’re enjoying my work :)

    2. Oh and as to your second question: At this point I have two options before me that interest me: writing the trio when they’re older; and writing about Mrs. Stone’s tempestuous youth, and her journey in becoming “The Arcane Artist.”

      1. Oh do you know when you will be able to complete it? I will be looking forward to seeing that

      2. It’s far too early to commit to deadlines, but you can probably expect the first book of whichever story choose to write for around December 2021 :)

  27. I’ve been wondering for a while, did the Arcaners have any enchantments or anything specific to them?

    I’ve always loved and been fascinated with the idea of enchantments in fantasy. With the Arcaners having spell specific to them it makes me wonder if they had any enchantments or crafting methods that were specific to them too.

    1. I’m going to explore more of the Arcaner pathos in future books, and some of that of course will deal with arcanery specific only to them. I’ve purposely left their future arcanery unfinished (not much is filled in yet) because I want to explore that along with the trio when I’m writing those books. I’ve made a note for my future files asking what an Arcaner-specific enchantment would look like.

      Great question, Corvus!

      1. I was wondering if you were planning on making a spell book or something similar? I believe the Harry Potter series had a similar thing but dedicated to Quidditch.

      2. I think that’s a really lovely idea, Will. Perhaps an almanac with the spells, effects, maps, etc? Though not sure when I’ll have the time, I’ll make a note of it and see what I can do :)

  28. SPOILERS AHEAD SPOILERS AHEAD………………But if I think im correct, then the dome closed around the school and part of the area around it, and the siege-engine dragon is trapped outside it, and Augum threatened Darby if Katrina causes havoc.

  29. Hello! Im wondering if you could explain more about the dome around the school at the end of Honors Price. Some questions I have are how big is the dome? Does it only go around the school? Are they trapped in it? Is the heart of the colossus dragon in it? I reread a few parts but was still a little unsure. Thanks!

    1. Hiyas Eli!

      Sure, no problem. The dome covers the entire academy and the grounds, including underground (it’s actually a giant sphere that penetrates the ground). yes, they are trapped in it. I’ll refrain from answering the Heart of the Colossus portion so as not to spoil it for others (hint: the Heart of the Colossus is needed to run the siege engine as its literal heart).

      Hope that helped!

  30. Hi,
    I was wondering if you were thinking of publishing your books with a main brand publisher instead of through Amazon.

  31. I feel that there is something Sever Bronny doesn’t get enough credit for: writing female characters, most notably Bridget and Leera.

    In fiction, I feel that too many writers will put their female characters up on a pedestal, declare them flawless, for fear of being labeled misogynistic. Those characters are one-dimensional and boring, and make for extremely underwhelming stories. *COUGH* Looking at you, Rey Skywalker. *COUGH*

    Of course, some other authors do the opposite. They only use female characters for the “Damsel in Distress” trope, and it definitely gets old after a while.

    You, Sever Bronny, have not made those mistakes. Instead, we have two incredible female characters. They are incredible fighters, but they also appreciate some of the finer things in life. They are flawed in some ways, which endears them to us and creates multi-faceted and dynamic relationships that help drive the story forward.

    Anyway, to recap, Sever Bronny has done an incredible job with his female characters, specifically Bridget and Leera, and I don’t think he gets enough credit for it.

    Sincerely, Ben

      1. Like Haylee..cough…cough. But really I want to see Haylee do something. I was really. reaaaaaly disappointed she didn’t get to do the thing on that place because she is always the one getting hurt sick or what have you. Even when Bridget was the one to always get sick, stabbed, cursed multiple times, slashed at, or overdrawn, she used to do something important, but Haylee is just “The Sick Girl” now and her most noteworthy accomplishment is just her passing the two things which are still HUGE and not just anyone can do it in that world but just saying(trying not to do spoilers). She’s probably my best female character. She has so much potential for change and to become an MC, but I guess it didn’t really work out. And she is probably the one character who grew as a person the most gong from condescending snotty rich girl to what you have now. But yes keep up the good work, and I hope I can read about Augum beating that evil airhead on that flying metal chicken soon.

      2. That’s a sentiment I share with you, Angel. Alas, sometimes there just isn’t the room to squeeze more characters into the story. But in general I do agree that I would love to involve Haylee more. She has gone through a lot, changed a lot, has her quirks and flaws (oh boy does she like pretty rich thing!), and indeed has loads of potential. I’d love to write her in a school setting a bit more too, but not sure if there’s time (each book takes a year of my life, so I have to be very choosey).

        And thanks for not putting in spoilers for readers who haven’t gotten as far as you :)

  32. Hi Sever,

    Absolutely love the world you’ve built and the young, brave souls you have introduced all of us to. The best visual moment for me was Augum using his training cube as a weapon and the Archons being mystified about the destructive result. Augum’s “in battle” ability to strategize is masterful. I am curious about one other thing. Augum specifically asked if necromancy was part of the original elements as defined in The Founding. We have also now witnessed an Archon that turned away from his code to help the trio. Previously all warlocks the trio encountered with black rings were only necromancers and sworn to the Lord of the Legion. Is it possible that someone that has black rings and is a necro-element user can be “good” or benevolent? I’d love to see a necromancer be part of the Arcaner order. It would be strange. I imagine that person would face huge adversity, but wow would it make for an interesting read.

    Also, what would the Elemental “offensive” spells look like for a healer? What would the effect look like, and what would the spell do? What does Jengo’s shield look like? What about his summon weapon? (If he has one).

    Thank You,

    James C.

    1. Hiyas James!

      Thank you for such a lovely letter. Interestingly, I get a lot of requests for a necromancer character, and it is indeed something that I think would be wicked fun to play around with — that is, having a good necromancer character, or even necromancy being allowed as a “legal again” element. But then of course seeing it all turn sour would be fun too.

      The idea is filed in a very large folder of possibilities, so we’ll see. As you can tell, I’ve crafted the world to be voluminous and flexible so that I can go in any direction I want.

      A healer’s First Offensive (and shield) is yet to be revealed in the world, so I don’t want to spoil it here, but I can say it would likely be underpowered as healers are expected to stay focused on healing (non offensive) spells. In fact healers as a whole look down on standard spellcraft and consider it a bit of a waste of time. This is a secret point of honor among them, a bit of a culture thing within the paradigm of the healing element (I could write a whole book from a healer’s perspective one day).

      Hope that helps clear things up a bit, James, and thanks for reading my work :)

  33. Hey Sever! Love all of the series and am very happy that book 4 of FoaRD is coming along nicely :) A few things I would like to know about is both Ms. Stone’s earlier life, just in general more about the Unnameable pantheon and the history of Ley and how it was founded (since I’m sure the two are related, at least in my head), more about arcanery and other spells of higher degrees/things that come with mastery and also maybe more about the the fall of the Arcaners. A couple questions- 1. Does Hell exist/where do witches come from? | 2. Will the various dedication levels of Augum, Bridget, and Leera to the Academy work impact their likelihood of acheiving mastery eventually? Also, I think I identify most with Bridget because we’re both nerds but we love goofing around once in a while. I also love her story and hope she gets more credit for her hard work. I absolutely love the series- keeps me captivated all the time. Can’t wait for book 4!!!!!

    P.S. Sorry for all the questions, I’m a curious nerd :P

    1. Mrs. Stone’s history is reserved for an entire series, so I hope you’ll forgive me for not commenting on that at this time. But the pantheon of the Unnameables is eons old, far, far older than Mrs. Stone, who aged out of Sithesia at around 101 years of age (or so). But the Unnameables go back thousands of years (perhaps longer!).

      1. Yes, “Hell” exists much like Ley, and is a place that likely will only come into play via other necromancers.

      2. Hard to say, so I’ll just answer with I don’t know =P

      No trouble at all, I’m only sorry I wasn’t able to answer them all!

  34. With the 9th degree frenzy and srink hopefully bieng introduced to solia again through the trio does that mean we will see more of the separate kingdoms and maybe more about there arcane schools ? Bc we know quit a bit about Cantera and there arcane school but the rest we really only know through foreign exchange. And second hand stories

  35. My friend and I were hanging out at the pool and spent OVER AN HOUR discussing how we would like to see an Arinthian Line video game that follows the original series and maybe a sequel that follows the FoARD series. We envisioned it being an open-world adventure, and once you completed the main campaign, you could explore more and get all the way up to the 20th Degree, and maybe even Mastery.

    1. I was thinking that it would be cool for the game to be an original story taking place at the height of the Arcaner’s power and influence during some war or another hundreds of years before the books. The player character being a new recruit who is placed at the center of events by circumstance and ends up climbing up the ladder and whatnot to the rank of Dragon.

      1. That sounds fun, but playing out the Trio’s story through a video game sounds better, at least to me.

      2. I’d probably be up for whatever the game designers had in mind. After all, I wouldn’t be the one putting in the work. I believe in letting artists express themselves. That said, I wouldn’t sell the rights to a video game unless it’s to a studio that could handle the scope of the project.

      3. I really hope you do the same if you ever make a movie of the books. Too many amazing books have had their legacies tarnished by absolutely terrible movies. *COUGH COUGH* Percy Jackson *COUGH*

  36. I was just rereading AL and FOARD and was wondering if Augums lightning is all black or just his armor, shield and his elementus, also are his ring regular lightning or black lightning and is it just random to have regular lightning or black lightning?

    By far my favorite series so keep up all the amazing work.

    1. His rings are normal lightning, as is most everything else he uses in his element, with the exception of objects that need a crust/that are hard, such as his shield and elemental armor. At that point the lightning turns blackish, hardening ice-like. For the book covers though the artist used regular lightning as black lightning just look like dirty ice.

      Hope that clears things up, and I’m glad you’re enjoying my work. Did you have any favorite scenes? Any favorite characters?

      1. Mostly Bridget because her personality is the most similar to mine

      2. I forgot to add this but I like her story ark, how she gets over her fears and always sees the good in people

      3. In that respect she’s really fun to write because she is this goody-goody, and I enjoy challenging her with moments that force her to make decisions that don’t always align with who she is, and that in turn evolves her character. She is a genuine, lovely and caring person who has a lot of potential for complexity.

  37. What is the time cycle for this world day in a year hours in a day days in a week second in a minute that kind of thing

    1. One year is 360 days, 30 days per month, split into three tendays each / six quints (each quint is five days, mostly used in the academy). Standard 24-hour days, but use quarter of an hour increments. Heartbeats are used as seconds (minutes are not used, though I’ll probably implement something along that line eventually). There is a moon, but the world itself is not earth.

  38. Frankly as a gamer, I think that I would better love a Skyrim like game based off of the Arinthian (which I am sure I misspelled) series that is hundreds of years before the events of the books where you play as an up and coming Arcaner during wartime during the age of dragons.

    1. I think a large gaming studio could potentially handle the work, as long as they understand the scope of it (helps to be a fan obviously). In fact I suspect it’ll probably end up being turned into a game eventually by a well-connected reader (same with movies). But we’ll see. And you spelled it right! Arinthian!
