The world of Crystalon

When we create characters and adventures for them as writers we complete a process called 'World Building'. We place our protagonists within these worlds that are custom made for them to experience distress of one kind or another, whether it is the world outside our doors or some place entirely different or even alien. Wherever we place them will be a world that will create conflict for them and make them as uncomfortable as possible.

When creating the universe Crystalon exists in I took this practice literally and moved him from a  universe of magic, where he was the most powerful sorcerer of all, and placed him within one where magic did not exist, or at least was not thought to. It was there in Crystalon's first adventure within the pages of 'Redemption of the sorcerer, The Crystalon Saga, Book One' that our anti hero at first floundered like a fish out of water until finally realizing only he could stand against an evil and overwhelming  mysterious force, if he could regain his magical prowess.

Later he would return within the pages of 'My Enemy, Myself, the Crystalon Saga, Book Two' and after two years of living behind the scenes on this new world he found himself on, battling evil magic wherever it reared its head. But then something would happen that would draw the mighty sorcerer back to the world and parallel universe he was originally from. A universe that was now no longer the comfortable place he had spent so many of his immortal years within. It was now an alien universe to Crystalon and especially to his companions who had no experience universe hopping. Once again Crystalon was in an uncomfortable place and battling seemingly insurmountable odds, with the fate of universes at risk.
