Special thanks to @KwispyKage who is working to bring my story to life. She has been doing all the art. We still have a ways to go for Chapter 1, but hopefully, this gives you a taste of what’s to come.
The Prologue WIP:
A long time ago…
Before there was an earth, there was a universe, and before the universe, darkness. From the darkness, a powerful explosion burst forth, creating the know universe and chaos; an unpredictable, malevolent force whose power and reach are ever-expanding.
The origins of magic started many hundreds of years ago, created by the god of fire, Prometheus, who harnessed the power of chaos to create magic and gift it to humans. In exchange, he asked that humans burn the valuable red stone known as Aurem. As part of the deal, humans who burn the red ore would be granted individual power, and the ore itself, transported to Mount Olympus where the god Prometheus would absorb it to gain even greater strength.
As time went on, however, humanity raged war over the last remaining Aurem, with the most power-hungry wizards forming a group known as the Arcane Mages, led by the strongest human alive at the time, Arthur the Crusebeard. Cursebeard grew powerful enough to oppose Prometheus and stormed mount Olympus to force him to reveal the true power of magic to humans. Prometheus, against his will, created curses, a physical manifestation of magic, when once touched, a person and the curse become one.
Prometheus created a vast number of curses, but the most powerful was the Curse of Creation, which Cursebeard had Prometheus create for himself. In Prometheus’s desperate attempts to stop Curse Beard from killing him, he absorbed the creation curse, but Cursebeard was too quick and swiftly killed the god, releasing the curse into the world. Where, is anyone’s guess. As time went on knowledge of the curse’s existence faded into myth, with many presuming it was lost forever, never to be seen again. Though, there are still some who believe the curse exists, and who would stop at nothing to gain its power. And those who seek to destroy it…
What is C&C
Creation and Chaos is a story set within the Arcane universe, but with a few twists and creative liberties. The lore in some areas has been slightly changed, modified, or downright ignored for the sake of telling my version of Arcane Adventures, and hopefully one day, Arcane Odyssey and WoM. The story follows Tobi, an Heir of Chaos, working with his order, and a group of friends, to grow their power and defeat Durza once and for all. Their journey will take them to many seas, face many enemies, and discover hidden powers. There will be new faces, old ones, and all thrown into a story of Order, chaos, and the type of people and societies that emerge from each belief. It’s a story of power, loss, friendship, mystery, control, and just good old adventure.
I still have much of the story to plan, and things may change, but what I just stated is what I am hoping to create. Hopefully, these projects are not too big for their own good.
I will be somewhat following AA’s original story, but not 100%. I will be using the main plot as something to work off of, but will change it up and expand upon it how I see fit. I never actually played AA, and only tried out AR, so most of my info comes from Tech, the lore sheet, the wiki, and other outlets of knowledge. I have not read much of sheeps comic and don’t plan to because I don’t want to accidentally take away story beats from her comic and add them into mine. From what I have seen, later chapters look amazing!
Some of you may or may not have figured this out, but my other comic called Arcane Academy is set within the story and world of Creation and Chaos, though how, what, when, where, and why will be revealed more as the comic goes on. It takes the form of a cartoony comic, but there is more underneath.
If you read all that you’re a legend.
