Update 65

by David Meadows 27. October 2019 21:54

After a long delay, I have added the first chapter of the Egyptian story. Supporting it, I have the set of articles covering important people, places, dates, and things featured in the story. The links are all in the sidebar on the Egyptian index page.

 

I know it's not at all obvious why a modern-day super-hero saga has a chapter set in ancient Egypt.

It started when I went back to the lost civilization of Atlantis, to tell a story that gave the origins of several things that played a big part in the Strikeforce story. A prequel, if you like.

Once I had done that, I realised I could trace these elements through the next 12,000 years of history, and interweave other elements that didn't stretch back as far Atlantis but still had origins in different historical eras.

The first of these new eras was ancient Egypt. I'm not going to list all the elements that link this era to Atlantis and/or modern times, that would be spoilers. It should become clearer in subsequent chapters and/or background articles.

This first chapter is a short introduction to the setting and the characters who will be your guides as these elements reveal themselves. And if I've written it well enough, I hope the story will be interesting in its own right even if you don't see the big picture. And if you're not interested in ancient Egypt, you can skip this entire section without affecting your understanding of the main Strikeforce story in any way.

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...
