A thousand years after mankind's destruction, in the next age of Earth, the planet plays host to an evolved version of humanity. With all truth of their origin lost to myth and legend over generations, the survivors wandered the wastelands, drawn to mysterious sites rich with a mineral they called meta-coral. This versatile compound became the corner stone of a new civilization and way of life.
As the population increased, the community became segregated, forming two dominant rival clans. Each developed their own theories about their ancestors before them and their conflicting beliefs eventually lead them to war. Suu’Vitan and O’sar fought for more than a century over land they believed sacred, eventually leaving their society in ruin with millions dead. It was at that moment, when war had taken over every aspect of their lives, that they were blessed by the return of the Acolytes; the five prophets rumored to have founded their civilization centuries earlier.
The Acolytes forced both sides to see the true enemy before them, bringing an end to the Long War. They mysteriously vanished after the final battle, leaving only their word that they would come back when the evil returned. Since that day the Suu’vitan and O’sar have enjoyed an era of peace, the prophesied return of evil ignorantly forgotten as the years go by.

About the Author
Working as a tattoo artist is really a dream career for me. I'm fortunate to have a day job that doesn't really feel like work (most of the time) and spend the days in a creatively stimulating environment of my making. Despite my love for the trade its not all I have ever wanted to do, and as I seem to be rapidly approaching middle age I thought it was time to get cracking on other projects. I started to learn to write stories almost a decade ago and it's been slow-going refining the process. I now feel like I've eventually reached a level where I can publish a project I am satisfied with, and 'Children of Orbis' is going to be the first of many. As a means of promoting this first novel and future projects I have started Dark Space Media (DSM) in an attempt to gather like minded people with similar goals and ambition to create any number of projects, from novels and comics to movies and video games. I am calling it a mixed media outlet for thoughts and ideas. Thanks to everyone who helped me get to this point and hope you enjoy my stories as much as i like writing them.
