Primary theme: World of Aramatir (Setting for The Champion Trilogy) Glossary
Secondary Theme: World-Building Questions and Thoughts

Salene Gray – daughter of Lord Gray of the Desert Province, and Sword Master Apprentice – eventually the Lady – Protector

Samuel – a former Champion of Septily

Septily – a kingdom of seven provinces, with a King, a Council of Governors, and the Triune Council all ruling it.

Stelia (Sarya Tellia) – Master of the Sword, all disciplines, currently acting as a Sword Scout for Septily’s Triune Halls, and as Clara’s mentor.

World Building Thought/Question: What is the stimulus in the world that starts the story or the character in motion?

Hi Tyrean!

Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day. This is a fun theme! I like the idea of creating a glossary of terms and characters for your novel. I'll keep that idea tucked away. May use it for my own some day!

The world building question is really good. I forget a lot of times that the setting, the world, IS a character and SHOULD affect the characters and the story.

Wow! Thanks, Jen! I needed your comment today. :)

Laurel Garver said...

That is a great question. It can be easy to become so enamored with the world you build that you forget to build in a crisis or change moment that means this story could only happen in this milieu. Great food for thought!

Tyrean Martinson said...

Thanks, Laurel! Glad you liked the question. :)

I used war in two of my books.

Hello there - thank you so much for visiting my blog today. So nice to "meet" you. What a lovely blog you have.

Tyrean Martinson said...

I noticed, but I don't think that was the only stimulus - the whole teleportation aspect I think stimulated quite a bit of the story too. :)

Tyrean Martinson said...

Thank you! Nice to meet you too. :)

Oooh, you keep making me think! Hmm I would have to go with betrayal and pain? I have to give this more thought.

When I finally get to start reading The Champion trilogy, I have to come stalk your A to Z. I'm sure I'll have a lot "uh-huh!" moments. I find that exciting! To find out more through your blog about "people" I know. :D

Tyrean Martinson said...

SK - Cool. :)

Nigel G Mitchell said...

In my latest book, the death of a close friend is the stimulus. I like how detailed the world you've created is
