Well met, and welcome back!
I’m still Ed Greenwood, and this is still my personal blog. ;}
As you can probably tell by the mountains of books, dragon sculptures and fantasy minis all over the place. Not to mention all the caricatures and con photos of me pretending to be a certain wizard (yes, the beard is real, thanks very much).
So if you’ve reached this page, you’ve already found Onder Librum, and can’t help but have noticed—even just in passing, for a blurred moment or two—all of these TEGG settings we’re trumpeting.
The first one to launch, Hellmaw, is modern, mainly-dark, mainly-urban fantasy: daemons lurking among us in our real modern world, mainly treating us like food. Gory, nasty fun. Not family-friendly, and so on.
The second one, coming up soon now, is Stormtalons, and it’s our big-tapestry fantasy setting, a sprawling world with plenty of room for lots of swords & sorcery heroic fantasy adventures.
It’s the TEGG setting closest in feel and content to the most famous of the fantasy worlds I’ve created, the Forgotten Realms, but it’s not the Realms. (Nor is it Oerth, or Krynn, or Athas, or Ravenloft, or Mystara, while we’re at it.)
It launches with a novel of mine entitled Words Of Unbinding, that will be followed by novels by many, many talented folks (including some familiar veterans and some brand-new taletellers), and like all TEGG settings, it will stay in print and continue with new releases “forever.” There will eventually be original audio dramas (as well as recorded “talking book” versions of the novels), there will be short stories in Onder Magazine, and there will be music and game adventures and artifacts and lots more.
(Don’t worry, I may blather about Stormtalons and everything else on this page, from time to time, but if we give each setting its own blog, those of you interested in finding out about just that setting, or checking what’s new about it, can go straight there—because once we get even half of our settings up and running, with so many busy Creatives at work and the announcements and lore questions and all coming thick and fast, it will be happy creative chaos at Onder, and having one place to zero in on will be friendly and helpful. And we’re all about being friendly and helpful!)
Drop by that page right now, and check out the chat on the blog this coming Sunday, and there’ll be more. As in, we might well be revealing some things. Drop by often, as the weeks and months pass, and more and more of the Stormtalons setting will be there for you to feel at home in, and fall in love with. A whole bunch of us will be building it, together, and I hope you’ll drop by and watch!
See you there!
