Igor is currently brainstorming an episodic series set in the Damnation universe. One 5000-8000 word episode would be released each month. Question mark in the title because Igor hasn’t committed to the idea as of yet, and the idea is still in its very early stages. Igor would be working on this along with the sequel to the main book, which will likely take, at the very least, a year and a half to complete.
For those of you who don’t know, Damnation is a dark low fantasy novel which takes place within the fractured remains of the Stolthelmite Imperium, an ethnocentric slave-based feudal empire that, through military conquest, expanded across a stretch of land roughly the size of western and central Europe over the course of around 500 years, then collapsed over the dissolution of its ruling dynasty during a civil war. The main book follows three members of the Clan of Sodlur, the ruling family of the Emperor’s former crown lands and the state church, approximately eight years after the end of the civil war.
This serial, smaller in scale, would take place only several months to a year after the Imperium’s collapse. Set mainly in Daemonenflech, an earldom of the new Kingdom of Stolthelm ruled by the king’s very young and deeply troubled heir, it would follow a squire of an Immaculate Order knight assigned to protect the crown prince and new Earl of Daemonenflech.
The series would, should Igor figure out how to make it so, be entirely free of charge. Due to the episodic nature of the series, there would be little if any overarching storyline, but quality writing would nevertheless get its due attention.
Igor would like to hear any suggestions you guys might have. If you have any other questions or comments, feel free to post those as well.
