Paranormal Community‘s challenge this week is writing a short story on a character being at a crossroad to heaven or to hell. Lately as I’ve been editing Rune Mage and plotting for the sequel of March City, I’ve been thinking about villains.
More specifically, how every villain is the hero in their own story.
The prompt of “Who’s going to heaven or to hell” led me to think of another villain who’s definitely destined for hell, who will also definitely visualise themselves as a hero who deserves heaven, namely Adolf Hitler.
How would Hitler justify going to heaven? I ask myself.
Calling lovers of Norse mythology and Dungeons and Dragons! Loosely based on the mythos, a diverse and complex plot awaits you, where the grey of morality awaits and the unpredictability of characters — gods and humans — keep you on your toes.
When the murder of a god shatters a thousand years of peace, chaos reigns among the known worlds. Even the Norns, blinded and stripped of their powers, cannot see how it will end.
Left without guidance, some gods choose to make their own fates. Others cannot. Old ties are torn apart while new ones are forged. And amidst that tenuous balance, ancient secrets emerge. War looms on the horizon.
In a struggle where battle lines constantly shift and allies just as quickly become enemies, nothing is sacred. For some, the end comes sooner than Ragnarok.
Magic and war, deceit and mystery — check out this medieval fantasy sci-fi where kingdoms clash and love blossoms in an intricately-woven tale of a wronged man rising to the challenge.
