or centuries the immortals of Askamar have fought, schemed and betrayed, each striving for power over the magical realm and the human kingdoms of Udaris. Some mortals chose to serve them, some fight them, while others manipulate them to further their own ambitions.
Askamar and Udaris are the settings of an epic fantasy saga that I’ve been working on for many years. You can find the novels I’ve written so far in the library. However, I’m more of a world-builder than an author; I write because it’s another way to depict the world I’ve created. If, like me, you enjoy the art of world-building (or ‘conworlding’) for its own sake, then you don’t need to read the stories to enjoy the website.
Explore the World
I’ve been working on this conworld (which I call Askamar, but which is really Askamar / Udaris, since there’s a magical realm and a mundane world), for more than half my life. It has grown and evolved enormously over the years, and it still sometimes undergoes changes even now. This website is therefore perpetually ‘in progress’.
I hope one day to make the website a complete reference to my conworld. I have a lot of notes that I need to revise and polish, but I hope you enjoy the articles that I’ve published so far. I often make small changes, but the latest significant updates can be found in my blog.
About the Maps and Art
The maps on this website were created using Profantasy’s Campaign Cartographer 3 (CC3), while the formal character portraits were created with the help of Profantasy’s Character Artist 3 (CA3). If you’re building your own world, I highly recommend them!
All the rest of the artwork (except for the commissioned art in the gallery), was digitally painted by my sister Maggie or myself.
