Did you know that a lot of folks have been working more than a YEAR on a LORE BOOK? It's true! And we just had a Kickstarter to get the first set printed! Don't be sad if you missed out. We are planning to have some printed that will be available for sale.

Without further ado...

Mortis & the Dark Eternals

This is the intro page to Mortis. All Splinters have a little something like this with a map.

A little bit about Dark Magic...

What about that Prophecy?! And the Dark Enchantress???

How does this 'death' thing work?

More about Dark Magic...

And even more!!

Do me a favor? Keep an eye out for spelling errors and such. Yes, I've been over it A LOT, but unfortunately, I am not perfect. I appreciate ANY help I can get. In the end, the goal is perfection... Let's see how close we can get.🥰

Thanks for peeking in!

This is gonna be awesome even without the utilitarian usage. I own several art books from several different forms of media (i.e. video games, musicians) Splinterland cards have awesome Artwork in their own right. I’m sure the art in this book will step the quality up a bit. I, for one, am excited as hell.

It's so cool to hold in my hands!

There's much usage so far ... for me. It's literally sitting at my side. It's SO helpful in being able to easily look up specific things... And it will greatly assist the future of the Splinterlands (which is constantly in the works). 😎 @carrieallen

Fantastic job by everyone involved especially @chrisroberts and @carrieallen for thier dedication and making it all possible! Well done guys!! upped 💯 and resteemed!👍🙋❤📚

Loved the peak into the dark eternals... And find it so interesting to see how the book version is spiced up from the original version. It's like how an outsider would describe the dark eternals vs how the dark eternals would describe themselves. It's a historian trying their best to understand a civilization and centuries of history and sharing the background... Sometimes it's like a game of telephone and that's actually super interesting to me. The original pure versions of history are almost never what we get... we always get a romanticized version that comes from another perspective that is writing for effect and that tells the story the best way they know how to the culture and understandings of their audience. It really is fascinating.

I really hope the lore and even philosophies of the splinters lives on and is discussed.

Like discovering the epic of gilgamesh from sumerian civilization than trying to understand through hieroglyphics

Yeah great analogy.

And yeah even though I'm the original author of the the philosophies of the black splinter I see even myself as just a sort of Oracle or earlier Historian... Which means I may just be seeing a side and not the whole picture... and I hope that the black splinter continues to have histories and different attempts to explain who they are and what they believe.

I do look forward to reading the rest of the history.

WOW-O-WOW!
So deep! Way more than I was expecting, very well done!
