(About Me and Summary below)
ChiarOscuro is a free online fiction series.
Every month at least one ‘Book’ will be released, made up of several ‘Episodes’ (these will normally span a week) with small chapters released throughout the week. These will be available to read on the site and available as PDF files to download, so you can read ChiarOscuro on the go.
Also the Red Book will be an encyclopedia of sorts on the world of ChiarOscuro, regularly updates with additional content and information that digs deeper into the world and lore of ChiarOscuro.
If you want to contact, use the email listed below, though there will probably be open discussions set at later dates.
So, be sure to follow, keep regularly checking for new updates and most of all, I hope you all enjoy yourselves!
(If you want to post any art that you may be inspired to draw by reading ChiarOscuro, be sure to send any submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll gladly publish it on the ChiarOscuro site!
What can I say? I’ve loved reading and writing for as long as I can remember. There’s something special in being able to create a whole world, a whole group of characters, a whole series of events that although they may be just words, they can inspire, make you dream, relate to and carry with you for the rest of your life.
Those are the kind of stories I love the most, the ones that once you’ve finished, you feel ‘sad’ in that you leave behind a group of characters and a world and those are the stories I want to create for other people to read.
I have been developing and seriously pursuing the craft now for over two years, for this is what I feel I was ‘made’ to do although I knew since I was younger this is what I always wanted to do.
Ever since in school my class was given a writing exercise to create any story we wanted to and while just about all my classmates only wrote about 1-3 pages, the sense of freedom I was given had me lost into it and I wrote my own story of about 20+ pages, haha.
And that story was a fantasy one as is the ChiarOscuro series although all genres appeal to me and all I really want is to have people read my work and enjoy it, maybe even inspiring them to pursue this craft and if I’m able to even influence one person to do that, well then, I think I can be glad of my work and the time and effort was worth it.
I would like to write more but writing calls, so I hope you enjoy!
Taking place in a world where at the dawn of human civilisation, a catastrophe struck nearly bringing humanity to extinction and close to forever changing the world as we know it.
They called them Demons, twisted, ruthless creatures with no seemingly other drive than to conquer all those weaker than them as they were the strongest and fittest and Earth seemed close to falling into the hands of these strange beings, who came to our world with no warning and legends speak of skies literally tearing open as Demons invaded our world.
However, humanity as it always seems to do, fought back and though most of the people living at that time were forever lost, the Demons were defeated, the remaining leaving this world or scattered as they fled the humans only hours before they had been slaughtering mercilessly.
It’s been 5,000 years since those events, though many dismiss the tale as legend and humanity has only recently started picking up again, there have been some strange reports recently across Aludin and with the mysterious Decabia to the east, the era of peace may soon be coming to the end and new heroes will have to answer the call to defend humanity’s flame once again, as they did so 5,000 years ago.
