"So, you didn't find anything of interest at the Chasm then?", laughed the barman as he looked at the three dust covered adventurers across the bar from him. "Well, let me tell you of another place that will surely be of more interest to you in your quest for... knowledge, wasn't it?"

"If you take the coast road from here, past the Lizard marshes, past the Stoney Mountains, you will eventually see a collection of huge stone structures rising out from the ocean. They were constructed hundreds of years ago by an insane wizard named Orbitalis who it was rumoured was able to coax the winds and stone of that area to aid him in his unnatural fascination with piling huge rocks on top of each other. So taken with his creations was he, he began building his home on top of them."

"Orbitalis continued building his home over many years, until he too became a casualty of the Night Wars, vanishing during the early days of the war when a thick fog which killed every man, beast, and plant for a hundred miles descended on that part of the coastline."

"Should you go there now, you'll still be able to see Orbitalis' twisted home built on top of one of the ten Fingers, untouched by the years, as though it had been built but yesterday. Should you approach along the cliff, you'll also see the armada of abandoned ships and rotting hulks that litter the shallows there. Some blame pirates, some the northmen who use the bay as their final landfall before their long eastward journey across the oceans, while others say that something is waiting in the winds and stone there, protecting the castle from looters, and waiting for Orbitalis to return...."

Part 2 of the story done (at this rate it should finish about 2010). Now, off to see what you lot have been doing :)

(edit - any similarities between Orbitalis and Joe Vinton are purely coincidental... ;) )

(edit II - for those that are interested, the smaller single tower at the end of the ropebridge is available for download on my website at ... just find your way to the Resources:Downloads section)

Well, I am once again amazed at your intense level of detail in realization, and I shall wait until 2010 to see the end of the story! It's well worth the wait for certain! I could go on and on pondering every little detail you poured into this phenomenal piece, but instead I will say that the entire scene is perfect and all the elements are in unison with each other to such a fantastical degree! Your work is truly inspiring to setup such incredible landscapes, and with remarkable characters and storylines to accompany the image series! That is what true artwork is to me; something that takes a helluva long time to produce, but the outcome is clear of the care that went into it! Absolutely superb artwork in every way and I can't wait to see the rest of the story unfold! *****

Your attention to even the smallest details boggles my mind, I don't have either the time or the patience, two virtues you oviously have plenty off.

Very imaginative, excellent work. I like the writing as well, please expand upon it if you will. Digital art with a story may be the way of the future, I hope so anyway, lol.
