At Lantern’s Light

At Lantern’s Light

I always try to explore new ways of writing – this time I chose to start with the smallest part of the world, and designing upwards. First I made a town, and the type of people that lived there, then it started growing into a fiefdom, into a country, and eventually into a continent. The next step was to visualize this world; a map. Afterwards, I started to write my story – below, you can find the first three chapters.

At Lantern’s Light is a story about three wildly different characters all in search for the same object; a magical lantern that connects the mundane world to the spirit world. One does so to safe his sister, one does so because his tribe demands it, and one does so because she is currently stuck inside the spirit world!
