    INTERVIEW: Höbin asks Finley Greenhopper about Fungal Horrors

    INTERVIEW: Höbin asks Finley Greenhopper about Fungal Horrors

    This was not what I was expecting for my first interview, but here it is.

    During my personal tour of H1-C-FIN101 (a.k.a. PINWHEEL), armed with my cheap portable recorder, I was shoved into a decontamination chamber to avoid being assimilated by a walking, human-sized fungal parasite chasing Finley and I. 

    Under the hum of the air exchangers, I try to ask what questions I can think of. I was actually here to talk with Finley about the classifications fo dragons he'd discovered--but sometimes you just get what you get when in the field and doing things live.

    If you'd like to read the actual article on the Fungal Horror, you can find it here: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/wantedhero/a/fungal-horror-species

    MUSIC: Book of Dark Bindings

    MUSIC: Book of Dark Bindings

    At the heart of Master Mahan's power is an ancient artifact of pure evil. 

    The Book of Dark Bindings...the collective knowledge of the Unembodied.

    A tomb of knowledge that allows its host to wield vast and seemingly unending power.

    ...but at a terrible price.

    What was it like when he who is called evil took hold of this book fro the first time and used his own blood to open its covers??



    Find out.

    MUSIC: Attack on Til-Thorin (from book #3, Into the Fire)

    MUSIC: Attack on Til-Thorin (from book #3, Into the Fire)

    I always wondered what it would feel like to see the Vallen horde at the ridge of the distant hills, preparing for their descent against the walls of Til-Thorin Keep.

    To witness a sea of muscle and sinew crash against the magically enhanced walls until stone and mortar cracked under the sheer weight of fury and near-desperate hunger for human flesh.

    Now I know.

    I present to you a brilliant piece of original music, entitled 'Attack on Til-Thorin'.

    MUSIC: United in Sorrow

    MUSIC: United in Sorrow

    Reaching for her little grandson, Caleb eagerly grasped his Nana’s hand, bathing it in tears.

    “Strength, my Caleb. You are the last of this house,” she choked, gripping his hand firmly. “Strength to our family, strength to our people.”

    Her head held erect, she looked about in blindness for those she knew would hold compassion and support for her plight.

    “Who will help a daughter of Iskäri?” she asked boldly.

    Standing, the High Elder removed Caleb, stepping back to make room for the necessary preparations, motioning for Shea to do the same.

    Wendell counted as twelve women came forward each offering, “I will help my sister,” as they wept. Sliding their hands under Kyliene’s body, they gingerly lifted her as Moira took the brilliantly white fabric from her arm and gracefully rolled it across the grass. The women gently laid Kyliene down once more, wrapping and tucking the edges to completely cover the body.

    Moira placed her hands on Kyliene’s head and wailed, “Never would I have thought this cloth we wove together would have been used for anyone but I!”

    Caleb rejoined her as the people gathered around them.

    Kneeling in silence, each Iskäri placed their hands upon the shoulders of those in front of them, creating a web of arms and bowed heads, every one reaching into the center towards Caleb and Moira. Each whispered prayers for the last of a family line, offering up all the love and strength of their people.

    They wept as one.

    This original score was written for my book, Prelude to a Hero, by Ruud Janssen of Myton Music.

    MUSIC: Chucks Theme Song (never thought this would happen)

    MUSIC: Chucks Theme Song (never thought this would happen)

    WantedHero.com continues to expand and expand. 

    Three more composers have come on board to craft music for this epic fantasy world, and Tyler Eddington, a US composer, worked with me to shape what we now present to you:

    Chucks Theme Song


    No one knows how old he is. 
    He's forgotten more about magic than most mägo have learned,
    His greatest gift and most painful curse, is seeing the past, present, and future at the same time.
    ...and no one really knows how much Chuck truly knows.

    In the end, he's always a bit...off.

    And we love him dearly.

KnightPont ,

I love this show. Please make more

Jaime does such a great job of teaching important world-building principles. If you're a writer or storyteller I highly recommend you listen to this podcast. They're fun to listen to and I found myself smiling and laughing throughout the episodes. He does a really great job of getting his children involved, who are witty and smart. Well done everyone!
