Hey guys, I'm sure you might be tired of me talking about my new novel "The Night and Day", but the storyline just got more complicated. I decided to add a storyline (mainly towards the end) about the Junsedov, the divine King of Dragons. (pronounced "zhoon-seh-dohv".) The storyline will be mainly featured in the novel afterwards called (you guessed it) "The Alchemist and the Junsedov". The back story, so far, is close to this. In the beginning of modern history, the Templarians, or Gods, rose from the dark chaos of their wars. Another, more mechanical-based race, came before, called the Semigonians, who were destroyed in a civil war similar to what the Templarians are currently going through. Then there's one more race that came WAY before the Semigonians, the original race; the Dragons, or more specifically, the Dov. (There are many races of dragon, the Dov are the ones estimated to have direct ancestry to the modern Templarians. Other races came after the Templarians.) Because of their long existence and rule, the Dov are considered to be the original, supreme gods. The Dov are dragons that base their status based off of a combination of three things; physical strength, magical power, and wisdom. They are ruled by the strongest, and wisest of their race; the Junsedov, the King of Dragons. (Specifically, the King of the Dov.) In order to become Junsedov, one must defeat the current King in fair combat, displaying strength and skill, and kill the current King. The Successor, or Pruntaasiik, is then garbed in the scales of the past King and declared Junsedov in an elaborate ceremony that doubles as a funeral for the past King called the Coronation ceremony. Here's a brief history of the Dov. The Dov were the guardians of the Voids between Realms and were vicious, uncivilized creatures. It was said that they have the power to tear Realms apart, just with their desires. A Dov's power comes from their natural desires that they project into the world by roaring. (similar to a Thu'um in Skyrim, which is where most of the inspiration came from. Except, these Dov do not speak to use their power. Their roars shatter Reality and make it form to their desires.) The Dov were feared by every lower race for their power, for they had little control of it. It wasn't until the dragon Kahdu'ulthur came along that the Dov began to learn to control their power. Kahdu'ulthur began using his powers at a young age and searched for a way to control it. Eventually, he found that concentrating using meditation to take command of his desires allowed him to greatly control the outcome of his magic and even control how and when he can use it. He began teaching this technique to other Dov and they declared him their wisest and called him Kriishaar, or High Priest. Eventually, he trained to be the strongest and later named king, Junsedov. After that, not much is known. However, he is the first, and only Junsedov to die of age, rather than in battle. Shortly after death, most Dov became feral once more. Then, the dragon Goldwiinthaarn, an apprentice to Kahdu'ulthur, claimed himself Junsedov. At this, many Dov became upset with Goldwiinthaarn and while still in mourning of Kahdu'ulthur, they left the clan and made their own civilizations, creating the Semigonians, who in turn created the Templarians in their war. Here's the royal line of Junsedov. The names on the left are past Kings, while the ones on the right are the Pruntaasiikke, the Successors. Goldwiinthaarn ---> Sotqalos Sotqalos ---> Alunslaad Alunslaad (killed by assassins for his terrible rule) ---> Reythstrunslen Reythstrunslen ---> Bromaaruth Bromaaruth (murdered for throne) ---> Vokunpaal Vokunpaal (died days after Coronation by unknown causes) ---> Malgravuun Malgravuun (died of old age) ---> Miinpruzah Miinpruzah (gave up throne and retired) ---> Kriidaankrent Kriidaankrent ---> Arylos Yes, in the Night and Day, Kriidaankrent accidentally comes across Arylos and attacks him, because Arylos is a demon with a dragon soul and a human body. It confused Kriidaankrent. Arylos kills Kriidaankrent in defense and is suddenly crowned Junsedov. That's the new twist. As you can also see, the Dov really are not a steady race, but they are known to be the most stable civilization, simply because the corruption in the throne of Junsedov in the past were simply because the throne can be gained in battle, and the Dov love to fight each other for fun, sometimes it ends up accidentally fatal. This is how it is set up so far, and I want your input. I also would like to design the Coronation ceremony, when the past Junsedov is mourned and the new Junsedov is crowned. Any ideas? (remember, these are dragons who appreciate power so I hope that helps out) Thanks a lot and sorry for the length.
