Update 68

by David Meadows 24. November 2019 21:52

This week we go back to the Altantis "prequel" story. In Chapter Three: The City our intrepid refugees finally reach the city of Kingsmount and ... well, you'll have to read it. Not much happens to be honest, they're just walking around and talking to people.

For those who wonder how this whole story is connected to Strikeforce, I can say that in this chapter you learn of one hugely significant link. I think I've made it obvious, but if not ... well, it doesn't matter, you still don't need to read the prequel to understand Strikeforce, and you don't need to know the link to understand Atlantis, they can be read completely independently.

The city of Kingsmount gets an entry (and a map!) in the gazetteer, and there's an encyclopaedia entry on Atlantean alchemy (which isn't terribly important, to be honest, but I felt like writing it).

That's all for this week. Hey, maps take a long time to draw you know!

Update 67

by David Meadows 10. November 2019 20:19

The hotly anticipated new Strikeforce chapter is here ... and it doesn't feature any members of Strikeforce! What madness is this, you ask? Read Strikeforce chapter 28: Time Again for the answers. (Disclaimer: answers not guaranteed.)

And a short selection of background articles this week includes Fallen Star from the alternate future timeline, New Pittsburgh from the alternate future timeline, and the Star Guard (from the regular timeline).

Next week is a designated skip week, next update will be in two weeks and may or may not be another chapter of the Atlantis saga.

Update 66

by David Meadows 3. November 2019 19:45

After a long delay, issue #28 of Heroes is ready: Down by the Sea.

It's part two of a two-part story, and if you can't remember part one is issue #27 (I wouldn't blame you, it's been nearly a year), you should read that first: Under the Boardwalk. (See what I did with those titles? Oh, never mind then).

This is one of my favourite issues, because it's a Chi-Yun story (though all the other characters get good bits) and I love writing for Chi-Yun.

The usual set of background articles this week include pieces on Sergeant George Deiten, Franklin Marks's House, the events of 4 September 1962, and the Brighter Media Group. As usual, these all have some relevance to the overall story (though not this actual issue), but if anyone can remember when and how they were introduced in the story, I'll be astonished.

Next update should be November 10th, and I'm fairly sure I'll hit the deadline.

About this blog

The Heroes Universe is an ongoing work of fiction, conceived and chiefly plotted by David Meadows, with help from a group of friends, over a 30-year period.

I am slowly documenting the Universe on this web site.

This blog is a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of that history.

If you're new here, the series of posts listed below will explain what it's all about. I hope...
