Almanac of superior creatures and untold heroes

This is something I have made through the years of fantasizing about possible characters and plots I could use someday. I started this project when I was 12 and the collection slowly grows. I do apologize about lack of description, my language skills and not enough pictures as this is all fictional and I didn’t had motivation enough to draw all of my characters. I am hoping you people have strong imagination and that you can paint a photograph in your mind.

I did revisited this project few days ago and shaped it a little bit so it could be understood in a way where I don’t need to add more explanation to the description. I hope you can find something inspirational and useful in this “let’s pretend” project of mine, because I made it with a purpose to share it to those that find themselves lacking imagination.

PS. I had to exclude parts which directly describe characters of my trilogy “Dronstad”, because I felt it might give too much of the characters and ruin a novel if someone would actually read it someday…. if it gets to be printed…. like, EVER.

ALMANAC

Braoory – Humanoid sulfur based organism of screaming yellow skin and ivory type horns that stick out from their upper jaw. Cheeks are hairy and pushed inward while cheekbones are slightly pimpled. They have usually bald heads and distinctive skin scars from which they draw air. They live in gas swamps with hot spring geysers. Reproduction is based on hatching an egg which is nurtured by the fathers… Yes, multiple males. Cannibals. Their society is formed as tribe-anate where a group of leaders form a Counsel. Known for warrior women that occasionally live on the outer ridge of the tribe and have separate lives away from the tribe.

Ildock – a town founded by mercenary forces that lives from their involvement in numerous wars across the continent. City is settled near a volcano where Ildocians believe it is a place where their God dwells. Volcano is settled at the very edge of the coastal ridge at the end of the enormous tundra. It is characteristically gated with thick black marble walls. Houses are built with a combination of sand and rock, while the castle and temple of the Undying is a one-piece alien meteorite based on the highest hill Ildock has in its walls. The great human skeleton stands in the middle of the temple slightly bowed beneath the dome that is always misty because of the inner atmosphere. In ancient times deity that sleeps in the bottom of the volcano was presented with many sacrifices in form of animals even human. Society is formed as a Kingdom with a King as their leader, but in the modern times King was replaced by a Knighthood Counsel. Maxima “Army takes, never gives away”.

Kotadar – an Ildocian deity that sleeps inside of an Ildocian volcano. The God Kotadar has three heads with three faces each. First head is a master of the sky, so it had faces of a falcon, a bee and a dragon. Second head mastered the mountains and forests, so it has faces of a wolf, bear and a lion. Third head mastered the rivers and plains, so it has faces of a snake, catfish and a rhino. Based on where a certain people group was living and from out of where they were getting their food, they offered sacrifices to the head that mastered the element. Fishermen offered their goods to a catfish by sinking it in the greatest depths they could find. Hunters and forest people gave their tributes to the bear, lion and a wolf by leaving the corpses of a dead animal on an open plain, hill or barren rock. This deity is the one and only present in the continent.

Aramon – Kotadar’s lawful son, born from the Ildocian King’s virgin daughter. He is fully a human, but with extraordinary powers and set of equipment. The legend says he was born with skin made out of fish scales, his jaws was like in a bear, eyes of a falcon, wolf ears, lion claws instead of nails, strength of a rhino, speed of a bee, tongue of a snake and all of that on a human body. His father has ordered him to defend the Ildock from oncoming enemy that was at the gates, so Kotadar has built him an armor from the bear bones and wings of a bee to make it light and strong, a sword made out of wolf fangs and snake poison to be sharp and deadly, a cape from feather of a falcon and catfish flipper to protect him in the highest of places and deepest of waters he might lead a war in. After making all of these things for his son, Kotadar blew fire on it and turned it all black and magical as dragons are magic.

Stroon – Race known for sharp mind and very capable navy. Reptilian-humanoid. Half green, half olive with scales and huge dark green misty eyes.

Thick sandy walls are protecting Zaria and its citizens from danger. Houses are made from sand and palm trees in a shape of a hexagon with a fireplace in one corner. From the distance, Zarian city and its castle appear white because of the bleached sand that is their walls.

Konia – A mountain city located in the peaks of Eternal Mountains range. Naturally steep cliffs make a defensive obstacle for any invading force. In the past, houses were caves that were naturally carved out with a decaying lime from within the structure, but later on, the urban style blossomed and turned Konia into a megacity. Society was formed as a Kingdom with a King as a main leader. Konians are easily spotted because all of the men are bald and butch. Cold temperatures, mist and snow is what covers Konian streets even due summer. Frequent Ildocian attempts to climb the Mountain and conquer Konia led to a hundred year of feud between the cities.

Petros – A distant continent with a range of mountains and hills on the west that gradually downsize to the center of the continent where a vast meadow is located with several towns. A chain of islands on the south is a birthplace of a new Ildocian army. Banished Ildocian Prince has managed to amass a formidable force from the natives on the island and take them to Petros where he roamed for several years before he acquired ships and took his revenge to Ildock. This event is known as “Turquoise Wave” because of the colors the natives adored and wore in battle. Natives were all black and tall people that were armored with black harness, full helmets with visors and “Deathbringer” swords. This wave broke off the common appearance among the naturally pale Ildocians and placed different tan complexion in their genetics. This mix breed and black tan is considered offensive to normal Ildocians, even though the black tone of skin was on a ruling side once. Ildocians are ashamed of this historical event and are not happy to talk about it.

A cutthroat way of thinking, rat people. Many deserters would disguise as a Ka-hoan man and flee the battle. Heroes and Kings often travel as Ka-hoan merchants to avoid recognition.

      • I have written 3 novels and 23 short stories, never published. I do have some here in segments “Cut off’s” (from the novel) and “Short Stories” if you want to read it. This Almanac is for public use. I have used some things from Almanac already, that’s why I mentioned it above the description of the character. If you want to use something from my Almanac, you are welcome, just to let you know, I also use things from it like Ildock, Gratna, Konia etc.
