Into the web I descend
Killing those I've left behind
I have been Endarkened
- Fantasy setting (post industrial, slightly steampunk) many people have control over magic, which provides them with a variety of skills, including the ability to (if they die) for their soul to enter another recently 'vacated' body (Body Surf / reincarnation type thing) Their society and culture has been shaped heavily by this (yay worldbuilding) In addition to humans, there are a few other sentient, magical races, including vampires (but Our Vampires Are Different so they're born, not bitten along with a few other differences) Vampires have been often persecuted by society. But when a powerful ruler disappears soon before his coronation, conflict arises when a Vampirist extremist group appears, along with socery that can kill someone permenantly. Our heroes go on an epic adventure to fix these problems.
- It's lighter than some of my other work (although it can get pretty dark) I'd just like to know if anyone thinks this is interesting, or that it might be a little too busy. Thanks

- 1: An animesque webcomic parodizing anime/manga, especially mecha/harem. Our hero recieves a hi-fi equipment from his long lost father. But this in not an ordinary electronics: it has built after the schematics found at the Dead See, and can wipe humanity out.
- 2: An animesque graphic novel taking deconstruction up to eleven.
@Wheezy: thank you also. your little blurb definitely grabs my attention, its something i would probably read if it were on the back cover of a book. the initial bit about the anime character had me fearing for our originality but it seems you've got quite a bit more going on than me, supernatural wise, so no worries.
@Ogodei: i can sympathies with trying for a more grounded work for the first time. the concept i posted above is probably the least fantastical Ive ever tried. your idea appeals to me but that's probably mostly because I already agree with your point of view(so far as i can tell). your gonna have to work pretty hard to avoid being preachy or Anvilicious, especially since you are setting out specifically to get across your point of view. Im not saying you should avoid the issue just that you should be careful. so long as you avoid using strawmen or an Author Filibuster you should be fine.
