The Vorrgistadt Saga by SovereignofAshes

A Grimdark Swords & Sorcery Web Novel 

The world of Aelth Myrris is dying; the world-god is in her death throes. This was not caused by rampant environmental devastation, the fall-out of some cataclysmic war, nor a random happenstance of celestial events. This act of murder was entirely intentional and caused by capricious and hidden entities even more powerful than the gods themselves.

The many groups that call the world-god Myrris home have been abandoned. Once proud societies are crumbling into ruin and barbarity as those with ambition vie to seize what few bits of fading power they can. Amidst this tumult, there are still some stories to be told about those few who cling to life wanting more than power and trinkets. This is the saga of those few who hope for a better future. Those few who defy the hidden entities that devour their world. Those few who refuse to be the pawns of fate.

Note: The Vorrgistadt Saga contains some graphic violence and harsh language.

Jun 10, 2018: In the spirit of full disclosure, I’ll state here that this review was done as part of a review swap, but it also reflects my honest opinion on the story.

I will try to keep this review spoiler-free as I understand that many people look at reviews to decide whether or not they want to start a story, so . . . yeah.

Living Lore

By Shaeor, author of Chosen Shackles

Sep 30, 2016: This story of kaleidoscopic perspective is, in my opinion, excellent fantasy. The Vorrgistadt Saga is very intellectually engaging writing. Its flow is intentful and the writing is verbose. The very first page is a selection of in-world writing which predicts, in abstract terms, an apocalypse. The site itself is nice, and navigation is pretty good. The writing is available on Royal Roads Legend in shorter chapters – in case long chapters is an issue for you.

The first true chapter is [more . . .]

Daunting, Daring, Dark Fantasy

By Megajoule, author of Inheritors

Jul 12, 2018: Full disclosure: this was done as part of a review swap, but I always endeavor to be honest.

Vorrgistadt Saga is dark fantasy with no cream or sugar, it is daring in its willingness to kill characters you sympathize with, and, both to its benefit and its detriment, it is a daunting read.

The Saga reminds me of a classic D&D adventure, especially the first episode, and as I am a huge [more . . .]
