Tanglebrook's Origin - Three new art previews!
      by Seppel

Long ago, there was a golden age of civilization. People worked hard, lived prosperously, and had happy lives. What they didn't know was that their world was unsustainable. Many generations passed before it became abundantly clear, and war broke out.

What lasted for hundreds of years took only one year to be vaporized.

Those who evacuated survived, but were scattered. The middle of their wide continent was now a barren desert, separating the habitable land into eastern and western land masses.

There were four main groups who chose to go east: the Haidar Lions, the Lutani Otters, the Alphus Wolves, and the Murodian Rats. These four groups each have their own story for how they were the first to settle in the east.

The Alphus say they were the first to evacuate, journeying during both sunlight and moonlight to find new fertile land to cultivate. Nobody could match the speed of an Alphus, so they say. The Haidar strongly contest that, claiming they could outrun any Alphus. The Lutani simply say they found waterways to sail down, and spread out faster than any of the other groups.

And the Murodians?

The Murodians say they've been here for years. They say the land is called "Tanglebrook," and anyone who's lived her for any period of time would at least know the name of the land!

The Murodians are a clever tribe, covering their tracks in both land and lore.

What keeps these tribes from outright fighting for Tanglebrook and repeating another senseless mistake? Sitting atop the mountain range east of Tanglebrook are the powerful Drachin dragons and their faithful Skaema shapeshifters. They prefer to remain hidden, ensuring balance of Tanglebrook from afar.

The first sign of war was between the Haidar and Alphus, easily the most aggressive of the tribes. But before the first large battle could happen, three large dragons flew down to put a stop to it. The first dragon caused the earth to tremble with each step, stunning the combatants. The second dragon controlled the winds, pushing the opposing forces back with powerful gales. And the third dragon flew across the battlefield, breathing a line of fire into the earth, which served as a permanent reminder for the two tribes to never step beyond that line while armed, or else more dragons would come.

From that day forward, the tribes should have learned to work together. Instead, their rivalries continue. To be the dominant tribe, though, they have to resort to non-violent tactics.

Will the Alphus uncover the Murodian secrets? Or will the Murodians thoroughly humiliate the entire Alphus tribe?

You'll decide their fate in Tanglebrook: Wolves vs. Rats!

Preorders start June 1st!

Hmmm, looking back at the map of Kemah Karah, the directions do seem to fit with my theory that tanglebrook lies in or near this land. A size able and unmarked desert lies to the northwest.
