The Fey includes any magical group with a primary drive of survival. They will do anything to stay alive, which drives them to be some of the greatest inventors and innovators Step into a 15,000-year history through the eyes of its least-expected storytellers.... AMONG THE MYTHOS is a science-fantasy series covering thousands of years through the eyes of history’s outliers, all the way to the end of the Earth—and what comes after. Runaway Fey princes, alien Earths and parallel worlds, ancient warriors and know-it-all brats grace these pages with attitudes and truly epic....
Note: this is a placeholder. There will be much more information in the future!
World name: The parallel world of the Fey. It's... shall we say, colorful. It's a world filled with vibrant colors and impossible magics. Jewels line the riverbeds, but don't think of this place as some kind of deranged Middle Ages rip-off. The Fey are actually heavily into technology, and their world reflects that. Here's a description of one of their main cities,....
The Fey don’t do well away from natural light. They also feed on love and other such emotions – very different emotions, which at times can cause problems. All that emotion-feasting began because of See Mab (throne) and Jaden (scepter). (More will come soon once Notte has been released!)... and See Mab (throne) and Jaden (scepter)., in The first war the world ever knew was so great, so horrific, that nothing could ever compare. An entire history will be released after Notte is published. In the meantime, here are the salient facts: Before the first war, the Peoples were very loosely divided into groups. There was no seeming need for organization like the Wheel of the Mythos..... (More on THAT another time.)
They are honestly magpie-like; they collect. This means weapons, jewels, spells, CDs (or more likely, vinyl records)….
Books, cars, nicely woven baskets, goats, trees, friends….
Memories, kisses, songs, fans, enemies….
Fingerprints, candy, number of times counting the stars, differently-colored grains of sand, one single spoon from every single country….
You get the idea. It’s so ingrained in them that they don’t usually realize what it is they’re collecting. John Baron Grey: runaway Unseelie prince and heir to The Throne, which he really doesn't want. [themedy_alertbox icon="" colour="red" font_awesome_att="" custom_colour=""] From this point on, you are entering serious spoiler territory.[/themedy_alertbox] The Throne and the Scepter rule the lives of the Seelie and Unseelie Fey, respectively. While both are somewhat sentient, only the Throne is truly awake and aware of..., for example, has no idea; he thinks he doesn’t collect things.
The Fey age slowly and not entirely differently from humans, but the way their bodies show it is unique: they harden. They can move and procreate and bleed red blood, but their skin and flesh lose their softness. They move more slowly. In the end, when they’re about to die (if they live to the end of their natural thousand-year span, which doesn’t happen often), they resemble statues.
The primary Fey drive is survival. They have an instinct for self-preservation that borders on prescient; The source of "dwarf" rumors - but only because of young trolls, who tended to run out of the mountain mines to have fun in the daylight. They are creatures of the Sun, which is why they can handle intense heat. As they grow older, their forms mimic the earth they shape; they tend to change proportions, and their flesh... often joke that Fey are the canaries of the “upside” (above-ground) world: if there’s even a whiff of trouble, you can count on the Fey to sniff it out first. Their power is a little more complicated, and I won’t be able to go into it fully here. I’ll just say this: after the First War, the Fey withdrew word-wide. Some of them hid completely; some, like the Seelie and Unseelie Fey, are much more public, but at a price. The magic they create is channeled away from them and to the power-base for each empire, the Throne and the Scepter, respectively. As a result, they have to find external means to refill their own power.
Trivia: Dragons (not to be confused with "dargons") are among the most dangerous creatures among the Mythos and not just because of physical size and strength. [themedy_alertbox icon="info-circle" colour="theme" font_awesome_att="" custom_colour=""] When you see the info icon, it means information in a footnote at the bottom of the article. When you see a link WITHOUT the icon, it means it takes... call them children of the grasses because they scuttle around in the grass (from a dragon’s point of view).
MORE TO COME SOON.
