Greetings fellow Players! Welcome to the new thread for the fanfiction Puzzle and Dragons World. This thread is for receiving updates on uploaded chapters for the story for those who do not have an account on fanfiction.net. It is also a thread open for questions, suggestions, critiques, and discussion. After all, the story is a fanfiction and I do not have an editor or even a beta reader. Any feedback is appreciated with the story. This new thread was created due to the last one being rather disorganized and lacking easy accessibility for information. For more information, please refer to the story summary itself and my fanfiction profile page that can be found here: https://www.fanfiction.net/~lordastrea For easy access to the story you may refer to my signature. I encourage creating a fanfiction.net account to receive updates on chapter uploads by following the story. Also, feel free to send me a PM on fanfiction.net. I usually get to my mail within 48 hours unless otherwise noted on my profile page. FAQ: Q: Do you accept OC's? A: I won't say that I don't, but I can't guarantee any new characters will get much prominence. The story is planned to be five arcs, and I have established which characters will be integral to the story. Q: What about monster suggestions? A: I do take these, but again, I already know which monsters will have main roles. There are just too many god monsters to include and I don't want to overload the story with exposition. But I can say there will at least be mention of almost all of them. Q: Do you have ideas for pairings? A: Yes I do. But I will say that romance is not a main focus of the story. I have read too many stories with promising plots that discarded them for the most part in favor of relationships. Relationships and romance have their place, but they should not overshadow the main themes. Q: Why aren't you using awoken ultimates? A: It is typical for game developers to withhold content from a previous game and save them for future updates. Furthermore, starting out in a beta in such forms would be way too overpowered. Also, wouldn't it be rather boring if most of the monsters simply had "awoken" as their title? Q: Do you have a grasp on where the story is going? A: 100%. It is now just a matter of how I plan to tell it and present the themes. The goal of the story is already established. Even the ending has been fleshed out. Q: How big of a project will this be? A: Five arcs of varying length titled: Puzzle and Dragons World, Puzzle and Dragons Warriors, Puzzle and Dragons War, Puzzle and Dragons Future, and Puzzle and Dragons Forever. Titles are subject to change. So to answer the question: The project is friggin massive! Current Word Count for Book 1 (in-progress): 138,541 Some Key Locations Introduced: Teril- A small trade town to the northeast of Fleren in the Pirugan continent near the border of Dragon Territory. Activity is now limited in this area due to limited resources from the border changes created by the Bestowal Treaty with the dragons. Siegfried and Cu Chulain have dedicated themselves to protecting the town from monsters. Millshore- A town located to the south of Mercury Lake and bordering the Demeter Forest. Most of the people from this town hold a strong grudge against the Guardian and Legion monsters. Some humans such as Captain Roche and Carther bear no ill-will towards monsters. The town is known for its skilled soldiers despite a fairly small population. Recent expeditions along the southern Bakke mountains have led to the discovery of fine ores. Sarkast- A powerful and rough military city settled at the heart of Pirugan in the country of Fleren. The city boasts a sort of gothic architecture comprised of melded stone. The city consists of an outer wall to protect the suburbs with another inner wall to defend the main district. Even the buildings are strategically constructed and built for defense. No army has ever breached the outer wall. It is home to the finest blacksmiths in all of Pirugan. Fluorestris- The capital city of the country of Fleren on the Pirugan continent. It lies a short distance from the west coast. This grand city consists of towering spires laced with melded magic stones. A form of electrical power is distributed throughout the city by knitted magic stones to operate large gondolas and complex machinery. Panels of magic stones are built into buildings for energy. A fortress sits atop a hill at its center. the deadlands- A blighted land that continuously eats at the life around it. The main reason for Sarkast's wall that transformed it into a military city was to bar the undead creatures born from this cursed land. During the first war, the great human general, Mal Saf, disobeyed orders and led his forces through the deadlands to assist ally monsters. Flint Peak- Lies a short distance north of Sarkast. This hollowed-out peak holds a massive dungeon containing a number of secrets concerning dragons. A cavern lies at its heart that is familiar to the Players. Dragon Territory- Following the Bestowal Treaty signed by the dragons, humans, and monsters, this territory was reserved only for dragons. The dragons are now in a period of isolationism. Humans and monsters of Fleren are not permitted to set foot on these lands. It has made it difficult for humans and monsters to establish contact should there be a crisis involving the entirety of Pirugan.
