Strange new lands~

Some people have asked me if other continents aside from Noches itself would appear. And to get straight to the point: YES, other continents will appear.

There's lots of potential with this world setting and exploring new lands is in the works. However, whether a North American-based continent or an European-based, I cannot decide. There are many aspects in the Legacy Cycle that can lead to either land. Such as the heritage of the Hispanians that remain back in 'Europe', and to the other option of North American-based continent, where it can be completely random or caused by a particular set of events.

The Legacy Cycle however will take its time with what goes on in Noches, and we will eventually see other worlds. However, not anytime soon for obvious reasons~

Ciao for now~

Back~

Sorry for those who are ACTUALLY following my blog, but I was pretty busy with work and studying. Now that I got those out of the way, I am going to talk about more lore regarding the world of 'Noches'.

Colombian, Ecuadorian, Venezuelan, or Panamanian?

As many of you have been wondering, is Ruiz closer to Colombian, Ecuadorian, Venezuelan, or Panamanian background based on the reference culture? Well considering that his nation is based on the historical "Gran Colombia", its fair to say that he would be a mix mutt of them all.

Now while I am Colombian from my father's side, my readers believe that its biased towards Colombians which isn't entirely true. Its all a mix of those different/similar cultures all together which I promised to value equally if I was somewhat related to them as well by my heritage.

SORRY ABOUT THAT

Hey hey, to those who actually follow my blog, you're likely wondering where the HELL I've been. Well...



My family lost their home and was forced to sell it in early November. This led to a bad chain of events where I have to now live with my cousins in order to finish college while my parents are moving to Atlanta GA. Well as you can guess, these last 3 months have bee terrible and to make matters worst, I lost my job (internship over in TERRIBLE timing), I had some social issues with my friends that were serve, AND,  I find out that my story that I re-uploaded due to errors by the first upload, had been my BAD copy. In fact, I had to recently re-edit the story almost entirely to fix the story because I meant to throw away my bad version of the story and deleted the good clean error free version. Hopefully the file itself is updated in time so that new buyers will get the better copy of my story....

Finding 'True' Joy~

It's hard to be happy if you're not pleased with the way how your life is running. But truth be told, our lives aren't perfect and no matter how successful we become in it, it still won't be satisfying enough. In the world of Noches, 'one' must invest a good portion of their lives in finding their true purpose and joy. Kinda like how you would see that stereotypical 'hero' in a old novel leaving his village to 'discover' himself.


For Ruiz however, he 'decided' what his purpose in life was: becoming King of Noches. But was that what he really wanted? Ruiz struggled with the possibility, (LIKELY possibility) that his faith wasn't to become King of Noches. But over time, he accepted the possibilities against his dreams while finding true happiness at the same time~

The thing I hate in stories that I did in Rey de Noches

Now I am the type of writer (aspiring) who prefers to make every character, minor or major, unique each way. I never tend to give one a unfair advantage over another unless for specific reasons for the story's plot or overall character. For obvious reasons, this makes the favorable character more based on a reader's preference rather than who is 'stronger', 'wiser', etc. 


But there's the one stupid trait that at least one or more (or 'being(s)' if you will) have in common; they're corrupted cheeky bastards.

That's right, I didn't misspell (yet), most characters as you notice think of themselves higher than another in various ways. Whether a 'good' guy or a 'bad guy', they're pretty much what you would consider to be a Anikin Skywalker from Starwars that many fans and neutral fans alike have no love towards,. Because let's face it: no one likes a spoiled brat who whines a lot and gets his way, and I for one HATE their kind.



So you're likely asking, "WHY then did you create such immature characters if you hate them? Hypocrite much?".

Well the true reason why I made some characters like that was to make their character development more noticeable. When it comes to it, those immature/cheeky pricks they give more credibility when working within a story's blue prints. For example, Ruiz's and Tadeo's 'parole officer' was as corrupted as they come not giving a moment's thought for their well-being. Taking them lightly may have costed him his life as he got his ass handled to him by a bad ass raging magic bull. Karma's a bitch no?


Now it's not to say that he's dead (clearly by the story) and there is still much that I can do with that jackass.

So is there more? Of course there is. Ruiz isn't entirely a humble person as you notice but I promise that there will be a character that you would love and/or hate at the same time.
