First off, sorry about that other post that went up. I had it scheduled for today but plans changed soooooo *cough, cough* that’ll happen later. I’m actually really mad at myself about that, ’cause I was planning for some stuff to be a surprise soooo hopefully no one actually read the post before I found out it was up and took it down. 😉 BUT we’re not here to talk about that. Nope. Instead, I’ve got an AWESOME linkup blogger Grace at Gabbing With Grace (A.K.A. the girl who designed the cover for Heir to His Crown that all of you like!) is hosting!!!
Sooo if you wanna know all the details and maybe join in too on your blog or social media account then click this li’l pink thing. So basically what Imma gonna be doing is describing something that could be used in worldbuilding for a novel. (Y’all should just read the post if you’re wanting better explanation of the rules.)
I’m sure you’ve all heard about the City of Lorbalow. The stories of her mighty nobles stretch far and wide. We all know about the magnificent designs of the mansions that stand tall and proud. And the emerald green river that trickles in the city’s depths. The wealth many of the people here possess and long life they are all blessed with. They never have to fear war because they are loved by all. They have strong leaders and never find a need to worry about anything.
In fact, all who dwell within the round city are known to be smart and skillful. Everyone who is a native of this land is born with some remarkable talent. Many grow to become famous painters, writers, musicians, and anything you can think of. The mystery behind these people is one that shall continue to live through the coming years. We may never know what strange, almost magic-like, power that rest upon the citizens of Lorbalow.
Though these tales are true, there is more to the story that needs to be told. Every beautiful thing bears a time when it must face pain. Lorbalow didn’t escape this crushing fact.
Because the people of this land never had to worry about war or destruction, they never found a need to grow a strong army. They weren’t prepared for when a battle did spread across their land. Their city was stormed and left for ruins in practically hours. An ambitious man behind this attack killed Lorbalow’s leaders and took the city as his own kingdom. An inescapable darkness fell across the once jubilant city. Though the people were still blessed beyond measure in skill and knowledge, they no longer had a desire to use their gifts. And so hope escaped Lorbalow, and the people surrendered to this ambitious young man.
But rest assured, dear reader, for there is always hope. A prophecy has been spoken of an unlikely hero who will return the laughter and joy back to Lorbalow. The meaning and truth of this prophecy, I now rest in your hands to uncover. Be bold, and never stop fighting for the light.
For now I remain,
Well, I think I got a li’l carried away there. XD I hope you enjoyed that!!!!!!
