The Northern Continent is at war with the Southern. But the Northern Continent didn't start it. The evil southern Imperialists did. The northern Traditionalists are only fighting to protect their world. Their world is governed by Mages. They are the highest, gifted by Magic. And they are the only ones who have free choice of their occupation, regardless of birthrank. All others must choose the job that their birthrank assigns. After a Mage completes their training, they must go on a year-long pilgrimage. A Mage will go on this Journey with a group of seven others; eight Mages, one for each element. But something has happened. Now, one Mage has discovered something that no one, not even the Mage Council, knows. As the Mage shows the others, they realize that only they can gift the world with the knowledge that there ancestors had. The knowledge of who are truly evil in this war.
Alitzia has been 'gifted' with foresight. But not just any foresight; she can only see pain, suffering, death. But she tries to help people. But by the time they believe her, they are already dead. And then the witchhunter comes. Witchcraft is against the law. And Alitzia sees visions. She must be a witch. And witches are burned. Warning: This story is not recomended for younger readers.
A strict caste system governs all aspects of life. You are told what your caste is, what your job is, and even if you will die, at the age of sixteen, by a council. How do they decided? The colour of your hair and eyes. The Council governs all life. There is no other system. But then another comes forth. The Council calls her and her people the Shifters, demons, for their hair and eyes, which shift colour. But this girl brings together a group, one member from each caste. Peasant, slave, worker, noble and outcast, they all join with the demon girl. And why does she bring them together? To free the world from hate and predudice (sp?). And what world is this? Earth.

I've tried so many times to write down this story... from various different perpectives... gah... this is my favorite version so far. it's still a work in progress and really just an epologue right now... it's not that great but hey, any help would be appreciated.

This is the sequel to Elder Guardian. Since I've had complaints about the length of my work, I'll post each chapter seperately to make it easier to read
This is the fourth chapter of my story 'The Shifters'. For anyone who has been following the story, it's starting to get much more interesting, especially between Rince and Ari...
Rhian is the most detailed, complex, thought-out fantasy world that I have stories set in. It has a long, complicated, and often bloody history. This particular story, set about midway through the Chaos Era (a rather early one when you take the entire timeline into account), is about a seemingly harmless event that could be considered foreshadowing for one of the darkest periods in that history.
Have you ever wondered why people name elves 'Xinthi'a Farusto'li Liam?' I have. My elf, the main character of this novel, is named Martin. And he doesn't have magic oozing out of his fingers. He has abandonment/anger issues. And a jerk for an elected representative. Enjoy. Note: this was updated April, 2007. The only significant change is the name of the mayor.
Telshander Silvermoon calls the Free Alliance to Murientel to meet with Amanya to work out a lasting peace between the Guardians and the civilized lands.
This is the third chapter of my story 'The Shifters'.
There is beauty in faith, but faith must be earned. Before faith, there must be leverage to hold another's soul.
