After such a long hiatus from this blog and other writing pursuits, it has come to my attention that not many know much, if anything, about the world I create in; the world which centers around the short stories of my compilation Trysts of the Hearts; the series which is supposed to be erotic based. So, without further ado, I’ll give some insight into the paranormal aspects of my fantasy world of Haven.
Hauntings in my world aren’t uncommon. There are the deep, dark forests where few animals live because of spirits, either from the dead or nature, dwell. In these places even the most dulled senses can pick up the creepy vibe when they enter, but only those with a shamanistic background in magic or their talent is connected with communicating with ethereal beings can see and either banish them or work with these spirits.
Animated skeletons in these places are always planted by necromancers and other pranksters to scare people away their secret places. Bogs, forests, ancient cemeteries forgotten by time are usually filled with hidden places filled with treasure and all of them are guarded by any number of undead such as skeletons, ghouls, and mummies. Any powerful mage is capable of animating or ensnaring these to protect their labs and libraries.
Goblins, vampires, licht, nightmares, and the like are very real entities who prey on the living. Zombies, in their own right, are also just as real within this world and in some places, are a problems for adventurers to handle for a bit of gold and treasure. Regardless, they are dangerous without someone strong enough to defeat them or at the very least keep them at bay. Magical weapons are a good resource when delving into old towers and dungeons.
Just don’t forget the special charms at the apothecary shoppes or the person who sends you on that quest because they just have to have that particular item and are too scared to get it themselves. Better yet, hire a good mage and shaman to accompany you on that adventure because even the kitsune can be more than a handful for the best adventurers.
