Read Gaea Parallaxis and join the adventure in a monumentally strange parallel world!

Posted by Harbinger451 on March 24, 2016

Gaea Parallaxis CategoryRead Gaea Parallaxis and join the adventure in a monumentally strange parallel world!

Gaea Parallaxis: the chronicles and testaments of Citizen No Name Kane is a free epic techno-gothic fantasy and sci-fi horror-comedy… yes, really! It follows the weird adventures of the perplexed amnesiac narrator (forced to use the name No Name Kane for legal and – as far as he can tell – purely bureaucratic reasons far beyond his control) as he explores the strangely familiar and yet alien world into which he has been mysteriously transported. The first five chapters of the chronicles are now up for you to read – and the plot is most definitely thickening – like the massive pool of coagulating goblin blood left on the floor in the Grey Wayfarer’s Inn at the end of chapter five. More action, adventure and romance will be coming your way soon as our hero tries to unravel the mystery of his presence in a dark and futuristic land of faerie… oh, and blood – there’ll be a lot more blood. Please feel free to comment on, discuss or debate these chapters by replying to this post.

As well as the chapters that make up the chronicles there are also added some appendices that will make up the testaments. These supplementary articles detail No Name Kane‘s attempts to make sense of and record the peculiarities, cultures and societies of the world that he has rationalised as the anti-verse – Gaea Parallaxis. There are four testaments presented so far; 1. the Common Tongue, 2. the Lunar Cycle & the Days of the Week, 3. the Solar Cycle & the Months of the Year and 4. Times of the Day & the Tolls of the Watch. These fascinating and sometimes humorous articles are purely meant as additional information for those who are interested – they are by no means essential with regards enjoying the more narrative driven chronicles (but you’ll really be missing out if you don’t read them ūüėČ ). You can also comment on these appendices by replying to this post.

We’d also like to draw your attention to a new animated gif, that was recently uploaded to some of the Gaea Parallaxis pages, that illustrates No Name Kane’s transportation into the Anti-Verse parallel world. If anyone is interested – the gif is made up of 36 frames and in each frame the falling man figure was rotated anti-clockwise by 10 degrees and the spiral background was rotated clockwise by 10 degrees.

Gaea Parallaxis: Prologue to the chronicles & Intro to the testaments

Posted by Harbinger451 on July 9, 2012

Gaea Parallaxis CategoryI’ve added a couple of new pages to Gaea Parallaxis: the chronicles and testaments of Citizen No Name Kane. The Prologue sets out the basic premise to this serialized techno-gothic sci-fi fantasy-horror-comedy, it acts as an introduction to the¬†chronicles¬†– which will¬†detail the weird adventures of the amnesiac narrator, known only as¬†No Name Kane, in the strangely familiar yet alien world he has mysteriously found himself in. Go HERE to read it.

Also I’ve added an introduction to the testaments¬†(or appendices) which hopefully sheds light on the nature of the alternative world and wider universe that is Gaea Parallaxis by explaining in detail exactly what and where this Anti-Verse is. The testaments as a whole will detail¬†No Name Kane’s attempts to make sense of and record the peculiarities, cultures and societies of Gaea Parallaxis as he explores it. Go HERE to read it.

I’ve also started a Dramatis Personae¬†(Who¬†are¬†these people?) –¬†A list of principal characters in order of appearance.

And, a Glossary (What does¬†that¬†word mean?) –¬†An alphabetical list of new, rare or obscure words and terms that are used within the chronicles and testaments.

Both of these pages will be added to as the story unfolds.

Chapter One (Hand of the hypnogogue) and Appendix 1 (The Common Tongue) will be coming VERY SOON!
