Manuscript Chat | The Bindings

https://youtu.be/XFq28QQMZRk

Hi everyone, Trynda here.

Today, I’m bringing you a Manuscript Chat where I will be talking about the bindings and essentially what the bindings are is a set of universal rules that apply to all beings within the universe and that includes the Elohim, the messengers, mortals like us and really everyone who falls within the scope of the universe.

So there are basically two prime bindings which are:

  • none shall destroy what they did not create
  • none shall create without free will.

So, that’s basically the foundation for the bindings and then there’s a lot of little tiny adaptations on top of those ones to also apply to different mortals and different beings and then other creatures that came along afterwards that didn’t necessarily fall within the original scope of the bindings which would have been the Elohim. So there’s a little bit of ambiguity when it comes to the bindings and the Elohim.

They are not really sure who put them in place, it could have been Elhreal or they could have existed when they got into the celestial plane from the get go. It was not really established who put them in place because Elhreal kind of keeps it a mystery whether or not he knows who created them and this is not purposely so anyone who’s looking to manipulate the bindings for malicious purposes has a harder time of actually doing that because they’re there to keep the advent flow of the universe in check.

The Bindings themselves are sort of like living and non living entities that invoke punishments and jailers and they also exist to feed magical energy to the mortal plane and that’s really also kind of like their non living purpose, they’re not really doing it consciously, it’s kind of just an effect of how the planes are joined together.

If you’re powerful enough and this is usually only the Elohim and I think Lucifer as well, you can actually see the red sigil that anchors the bindings to the different planes. So, during the Elohim’s recorded history, if you could call it that, there’s not really a lot of records where the bindings are really invoked and I think this is because more or less, the Elohim aren’t really malicious and aren’t looking to do things that would break the bindings, the only two times were with Lilith when she was betrayed by Iaida and the other time was when Larathel defeated Gabrielle and it was kind of a unsettling feeling that everyone got when this kind of happened because Elohim are not meant to break the bindings, they’re supposed to be the best of the best.

So, I think that’s it for now guys. If you like this video make sure to leave a like and subscribe to my channel for more.

Manuscript Chat | Lilith, First of the Betrayed

https://youtu.be/jCYRGU25Z6Q

Hi everyone.

Trynda here, today I’m bringing you a Manuscript Chat talking about a character of mine named Lilith.

For those of you who’ve watched my other videos, you’ll know I’m working on a collection of short stories for NaNoWriMo called Lost To The Seams and this short story collection is actually around Lilith. So, I thought that this would be a good time to talk about her.

So, let’s get into it then.

Lilith is actually part of the race of Elohim and she’s most well known among them for being the creator of what’s called the Soul Basins. I won’t get into it too much in this video but the basic concept of a Soul Basin is a device that lets you put a soul into a vessel in the celestial plane. So, Lilith is actually very popular among the Elohim because of the soul basins and these soul basins are integral to creating the messengers which are the primary companionship for the Elohim.

Lilith is very unique within her race because she’s known as the first of the betrayed when the great betrayal happened and the rest of her kind was essentially wiped out. She was tricked into making a dagger for the main antagonist of On Fallen Wings and in doing so, invoked the bindings which are a set of universal rules that cannot be broken by any creature in the universe.

What happened when she invoked these laws, during a ritual that she didn’t realize had the consequences it did, imprisoned her and basically punished her for breaking the rules.

She’s also very unique in the sense that she broke out of this prison when no one thought that that was possible and she ended up actually ripping herself into the mortal plane which was also believed to be impossible because one of the bindings is, an Elohim cannot set foot in the mortal plane.

So, the short stories that I’m working on kind follow Lilith through how she’s handling being in prison and breaking through.

What Lilith has to do once she’s on the Mortal Plain is get used to the passage of time and really get used to being immortal in a place where she’s not meant to be and the whole time, she just wants to get back to her home in the Celestial Plain and she kinds of struggles along the way until she finds Lucifer and Paimon and learns that there has been been a celestial war and that the messengers have fallen and everything has basically gone to shit since she fell to the mortal plane just as the messengers did.

Without Lilith, there was no way that Lucifer and Paimon would have been able to bring Larathel back and set the plains right again. It would have just been out of their comprehension and they just didn’t have the skill set necessary to perform the ritual.

So she’s a character that’s meant to be a very mentoring role but she’s very anti social especially after she’s betrayed and she doesn’t really like interacting with too many because she’s very untrusting and I understand why so because she was tricked by one of her own kind that she trusted. So, she’s got trust issues for sure.

I think that’s it for now so, if you like this video, make sure to leave a like and subscribe for more like them. If you wanna see a specific topic covered, leave a comment down below and I’ll try and do that in the next videos, all of these topics and more are covered over on my Patreon so if you’re looking for some more world building and behind the scenes stuff with my universe then make sure you head over to my Patreon and look at that. If you’re looking for some ebooks, makes sure to check out the dystopian and post apocalyptic giveaway, along with the short horror giveaway as well. There’s tons of short stories and ebooks going on over there so head over to the link down below.

So I think that’s it and I will talk to you guys next week.

In this episode of Manuscript Chat I talk about Lilith, First of the Betrayed. I thought it would be a good time to talk a bit more about Lilith, since I am working on a series of short stories based around her for NaNoWriMo 2017.

Manuscript Chat | The Messengers

https://youtu.be/E6goDxnTRiU

Hi everyone.

Trynda here, bringing you another manuscript chat.

Today, I’m gonna be talking about the messengers which are basically a race that live in the celestial plane with the Elohim.

They are created through making a covenant of some sort whether it be for protection or companionship or really anything the Elohim and that soul make a pact for. Depending on what purpose they were made for, the messengers will look different but often times, they’ll have a base image that is inspired from different areas throughout history. Some taken from biblical references others from the Italian renaissance. Some of the base line features that the race of messengers have are huge wings that they can fly with, pale white skin, silver eyes, silver hair and a very tall, lanky but slightly muscular form.

Some of them are more muscular than some of them are not but it really depends on what they were created for because that’s going to assist them with the task they were assigned to do.

I don’t know if assigned to do is the right word because it’s kind of a ‘you help me and I help you’ agreement between the Elohim and the messengers. So, it’s not so much of a self serving thing although there are exceptions, it’s more of a agreement and respect for one another.

Among the messengers, there is also the high messengers which are basically the equivalent of an arch angel and that is the right hand or second in command of the Elohim that created them.

Once again, there are exceptions to this rule but more often than are not, the high messengers serve as body guards, companions and kind of a jack-of-all-trades that assist the Elohim whenever and wherever they can.

Some of the High Messengers that are in On Fallen Wings are Lucifer, Paimon, Michael and Gabriael. I think those are the few that I’ve mentioned, there are more that I can’t think of off the top my head but those are the ones that I’ve talked about so far.

Since the high messengers act as body guards, that are incredibly hard to kill and are often very skilled in the art of combat and various other trades that are appealing to the Elohim that created them.

So, I think that’s it for now guys. I’m going to put the sheet from my world bible up on my Patreon for Patreons to see, if you haven’t checked out my Patreon, make sure to check out the link below. (Revival Episode 4) launches on November 4 so, if you haven’t gotten your preorder and you’re looking my to get one, then make sure you head to the link below as well.

I think that’s it for now and I will talk to you guys next week.

Manuscript Chat | The Elohim

https://youtu.be/-i6w2zz-tY0

Hi everyone.

Trynda here, bringing you another manuscript chat video. Today, I’m gonna be talking about the Elohim and the universe that they reside in.

First off, if you haven’t watched my other video, I will leave a link down below for you guys and I would recommend going to check that out first before checking this video because it will just give you and intro into the series and give you a jumping off point.

So lets get into it.

The Elohim are a race that I created within my universe that are basically the architects to life as we know it. The Elohim live in what they call a celestial plane and that is a little pocket inside the flow of time that they created themselves.

They also created what is known as the divisional plane and the mortal plane. Now the Divisional Plain is kind of like a Purgatory or just a no-mans-land for souls and celestial beings to transverse with each other.

And then we have the Mortal Plain which sounds pretty self explanatory and that’s kind of where we live.

The reason that these dimensions are set up the way they are is to reflect how a lot of mythologies look at how people interacted with the gods. It wasn’t very often that you saw humans interacting with gods on a face-to-face level. You often saw people interacting with the gods through a medium of some sort whether that be drugs or angels or messengers or even the gods themselves manifesting in a different form but you never saw people interacting with the god itself because they will basically burst into flames or an equivalent for that theology. So, I wanted to incorporate that in my world so it wouldn’t seem like humans and gods were having a direct conversation all the time because that’s not what it looked like in history.

What originally started this idea of the Elohim was this one passage from the book of Revelation in the King James Bible and it gave me the idea of what the Elohim would look like and that was with their bleach white skin, hair and eyes and their super tall features almost make them look very alien and non human like.

After I had the basic idea of how I wanted the Elohim to look, I knew that I had to make them a little bit down to earth so they wouldn’t be invincible and they could still be concrete in a certain way.

To make sure that the Elohim were not overpowered and instead a race you could associate that still had downfalls, I made sure to give them the inability to heal and fragile bodies along with a set of rules called The Bindings and this was in theory meant to make sure they could stay in check without essentially messing up the entire universe. These flaws of being unable to heal and having fragile bodies, forced the Elohim to be realistic about how they use their powers and needing help along the way and in turn they created what’s called the messengers.

The messengers are basically like bodyguards, assistants and companions. Basically, anything that the Elohim can’t do, they create a messenger for. It sounds a little bit odd putting it like that but often, it’s a mutual agreement between two corporal beings. If that makes sense.

So I think that’s it for now guys, if you like what you saw make sure to leave a like and subscribe to my channel for more videos like it. If you want to hear me talk about something specific, then leave a comment down below and I will talk about that next time. If you haven’t read the Revival series yet then I suggest checking out Revival Prologue, it’s available free at the link down below. You can also get Revival (Episode 3) now if you’re all caught up and Revival (Episode 4) is also available for preorder so you can check all those links in the description down below as well. I’m going to be putting my excerpt about the Elohim from my world bible up on my Patreon so, if you wanna know some specific details bout the Elohim, then I suggest heading over to my Patreon and seeing if that’s something that you can be interested in signing up for.

You can also sign up for my mailing list and get a free short story if you’re looking for something to read and that is also down in the description below and I think that’s it for now so, I’ll talk to you guys later.

Manuscript Chat | Intro – On Fallen Wings

https://youtu.be/oG6YyvSVygc

Hi everyone, Trynda here.

For those of you who don’t know me, I am the author of the post-apocalyptic Revival short story series and today, I’m bring you a new video called Manuscript chat.

In this video series, I’m going to talk about the manuscripts that I’m working on, what struggles and ideas I come with along the way and just kind of an overall feel of how I go about making the stories that I craft and the universe that they’re in.

So, I start off first with talking about the manuscript briefly that I’m working on now and I’ll move into how the universe I’m working on sort of develop.

Right now, I’m working on a manuscript that has the running title On Fallen Wings, which will change eventually and I will put a link to the working progress tag I did about it because I answered a few questions like give you a good intro into On Fallen Wings. To summarize On Fallen Wings quickly, it is an urban fantasy that is about a guard who went into hiding in the mortal world to save herself from the one who wanted to kill her.

On Fallen Wings originally came from my curiosity of wanting to know why Polytheistic religions of the ancient world fell away to the Menolistic religions that we have today.

It really started with this one question that I had in the back of my mind when I was learning about the ancient world and that was, what if Lucifer had been framed? You see it all through history of the winners not necessarily being the good guys writing what every body knows and it made me curious of what I could do with that little twist on what we know today from Christian theology.

Once I had that question, I knew that I had to make a universe that I could write Indefinitely in so I could write in any genre that I really wanted to because there were so many stories I really wanted to write about and all these different ideas that I have buzzing in my head that I would love to type back and forth. Two of my greatest inspirations are destiny and the dark soul series because there’s such a strong community around these two games and the law around them that’s scattered throughout all of the different aspects of the game that you can dig up and piece together if you have the time and energy to do it. I wanted to be able to create stand alone stories and then be able to hide little ties to my other stories in the same universe together and with that, I created the Elohim universe or Elohim, however you say it. I am not the person to ask about that.

So, I think that’s where I’m gonna wrap it up for now guys, I’m not too sure what’s gonna come with this video for now guys, it’s a little rumbly, if you enjoyed watching it, leave a like and subscribe to my channel. If you have any questions for my next video or suggestions for what you’ll like me to talk about, leave them in the comments down below or you can reach me on social media.

You can now get Revival episode four for preorder and Revival episode three is also available and if you’d like some more short stories and other world building aspects and it’s little bit more in depth, you can head over to my Patreon.

I will link everything down below for you guys and I’ll talk to you guys later.
