What do you guys think?

Ok here is the brief rundown on what I'd like opinions on... The Cult of Shaegon is like the apple that Eve took from the Serpent. Shaegon is kind of like the Serpent (Satan) in that picturing... They represent wisdom that the Gods would have mortalkind never know. I've been tweaking the purpose and powers of the Cult of Shaegon for a long time, and I feel like I'm bordering a breakthrough. Here is what I know about them for certain:
  • They support the concept of "Truth" and "Study" in the name of an ancient soul (Shaegon) who was imprisoned by the Gods.
  • They support the public turning their back on their Gods or, in a more extreme measure, destroying them.
  • They keep well hidden, working behind the scenes like the Illuminati.
  • They like to wear black and paint a symbol on their faces during meetings.
  • Some, the leaders at least, maintain a fragile immortality... they'll live forever, agelessly, unless their body is killed.
What I'm asking...
Does this theory on their immortality seem reasonable or too far-fetched and/or stupid?
They maintain longevity by exchanging their spirit and soul with that of a new host-- more than likely that host would be kidnapped or perhaps bred for that purpose, going right along with the Cults 'darker' tones.
As for their memories... I don't know. Perhaps their procedure has a way of imprinting those memories into the soul or spirit (kind of like how people believe in past lives and having dreams or deja vu involving memories of a place they've never been to.)
I'm wanting to make sure that isn't just 'the kind of stuff from magical fairy kingdom' type of magic... I like my magic to be relatable... methodical. Somehow almost logical.
Comment me either on this blog or on the shared post on facebook with your viewpoint, comment, or question!! I'm excited to know what you think.

Wow, thanks Russia!

I've been looking for a reference for my old character Suwen Ktane (Formerly known as Sven) for awhile, and I've finally found someone who looks A LOT like him. The guy is called Alex Veadov, and he's a Russian actor. Even though he's quite older than Suwen is when he's first introduced, he looks A LOT like Suwen during his years as the King of Candarlynn.

Check out the pinboard I'm gathering by clicking the picture below!

Name Change Update!

Mosque in Abu Dhabi |ॐ| G-g-gaaah-gorgeous!!

Hey guys!

Today, I've officially updated the name of the white-sand desert that has been sitting as "Middlestream" for countless years. It's one of those things that I was never sure how to go about renaming, but I KNEW it needed it, because my world doesn't speak english... so you know. Why would it have a place named with two english words.

Anyway! To keep with the theme of "Middlestream" and calling the residents "Middians"... I've chosen to rename it to "Midel" (mai-DEHL) with the people referred to as "Midelians" (mai-DEHL-lee-uns) or (mih-DEHL-lee-uns).

I know that no official map of any worth has been posted of the world in a good long while, but if you would like to see what the land of Midel looks like, take a peek at this pinboard on pinterest! Have a pinterest account? Follow me! :D I'm very active.

Greetings, Friends

Hello, Welcome, Sat Nam,

This is a blog devoted to my fictional realm of Drumlore, set on the old-world planet Novan-Gan. It is a realm of man, mer, and troll, as well as the mythical Wai Nokan people and monsters lurking in the depths of the mountains. Old Gods roam the lands of the civilized people by their will while tribes practicing old ways dwell in every nook and cranny of the uncivilized map. Many are friendly, some are not.

Updates to this blog will be focused on updates pertaining to the Drumlore Pinterest Boards, the Drumlore DeviantArt group, the Drumlore wikia, and miscellanious updates to the world itself! Please follow this blog for routine updates, or follow me on facebook, where I link to all new posts! It's alot easier than checking on each individually.
