Everwood Guard Post

Everwood Guard Post
Sketched up a drawing from above of Everwood Guard Post. It is an adobe brick building, with wooden rafters serving to support the roof and upper floors. There are 3 floors in total, and external ladders are used to reach the upper floors. Smaller domed wikiup structures surround the sides and rear of the post, housing several soldiers each. Longer Long Houses store supplies. Several leafless trees can be seen, this drawing taken place in late fall, although a few evergreen trees can be seen. also a few bushes are scattered around. A distant mountain Tocha Tono can be seen beyond the edge of the plateau.

Here is the mountain that it is based on. The white is not snow. It is the color of the soil. You can also see the mountain in the Google Everwood satellite picture.

Introductory Mythology of World of the Fifth Sun

Introductory Mythology of World of the Fifth Sun 

The wars have been going on for millenniums. Whether gods, as many call them or some ancient galactic super race or species, the “gods” have battled each other long before they created Humans, a recent creation.

Around four different stars - or suns - Humans have lived on planets . Each resulted in the destruction of the world, causing the gods to move their creatures to another prepared world and different sun, and the fight moved along with each movement. 

Concerning the prior suns and worlds, much has been forgotten. Humans, short lived and less willing to record details, only have snippets in the form of legends and mythological stories. 

During each world destruction, the gods moved their surviving creatures in great ‘Sky Birds’. 

This fifth star, the Sun, is called ‘Sol’. 

The chosen races of the gods were sent to Ea, the third planet circling Sol. 

Sky Birds landed scattered strategically across this world, dropping off the races in key areas, for each of the gods. Several continents serve as war grounds. 

Although at a disadvantage in the prior four stars, at this world - Ea - Humans will thrive.

Conceptual Sketches from the Story World

Conceptual Sketchs
Did this the last few days. A conceptual drawing from the story world of the three main characters.

(Front) Tetwatoko - strong warrior in training, (Back left) Wiluwichi - emotional musician in training, (Back right) Tsum'il - old Orator, Story  Teller, and Wood Worker.

This story is the origin of the idea for the World of the Fifth Sun.
