Guide to the Kingdom of Nareth


shutterstock_104112650
Your introduction to the Kingdom! Enter Mercy’s world. Experience the immersive experience that is the Kingdom of Nareth Series.

Genre: Erotic Romance, Sensual Vampires.

Definitions (for the un-initiated):
Todesgeist: Members of the Kingdom of Nareth. Vampires like you’ve never seen before. Long lived, strong, powerful, and Oh so Hawt!!
Reticine: Trusted Protector. More closely defined as Keeper. As Todesgeist require the full satiation in order to survive upon coming of age, it is customary for females of the Noble Kuspit to be appointed a keeper. This is to keep the coveted females safe, but also to prevent them from having to scavenge to survive. The Reticine is responsible for meeting his mistress’s every need.
Blood Den: Noble sanctioned feeding house for unmated Todesgeist.
MorderBan: Mid Class Blood Den located in Southern California. See Lusten.
RedMorder: High class Blood Den located in Nevada. See Blood Mother.
Satiation: Todesgeist feeding ritual whereby all three hungers are fed. Lusten, Farbo, San. Known as a full feeding. Upon coming of age the sene is broken by initiating a full feeding, during which the soul weile, or Farbo seat is opened for the first time. This releases the powers of the soul and reveals the Farbo marks that declare a Todesgeist’s status in the Kingdom.
Lusten: First part of the Todesgeist Satiation. The food of the body. The very essence of physical need and sustenance. Energy released by the body during physical arousal and pleasure.
Farbo: Second part of the Todesgeist Satiation. The food of the soul. The very energy of life and creation. This energy is released only during full satiation during which all three seats of power are opened in complete supplication. Often only released after a full feeding of both Lusten and San during the height of climax. The culminating point of the Satiation Ritual.
San: Third part of the Todesgeist Satiation. The food of the heart. Energy garnered through drinking the blood of others.
Denkin: Inhabitants of the Blood Den, who report to the Appointed Blood Mother.
Kuspit Noble: High nobles born of lineage descendant of the original six. Traceable family books magically bound, and spelled against untruths are kept at every family seat.
Tellrian Band: Lesser nobles fallen or unclaimed by a greater family but belonging to a lesser family.
Sangeisten: Literally Noble Protectors. Noble sect of the original six families that have formed into separate military police group, responsible for the longevity, security, and protection of the secret of the race’s existence.
Zabine Denizen:  Unaffiliated Todesgeist with untraceable origins, or lineage to the Original six. Are often mercenaries, work for hire, artists, artisans, etc. They are few as there are many benefits to being affiliated. Most children are adopted, or join other families.
Experience the Kingdom, Be Satiated Here. Lusten, Farbo, San

MagKaen Spotlight: Phi

Definitions (for the un-initiated):

MagKaen : (m-ae-g-kine) The magic, paranormal, supernormal universe including all supernormal beings as defined by the human standard. This includes elves, werewolves, giants, vampires, witches, gnomes, shape-changers, brownies, mages, and just about every other entity from human lore (and nightmare).

Phi: (Fee) Persnickety, shape changing, human bashing tree sprite that lives in trees and large bushes.

Ever been in a park, or hiking on a trail and suddenly been attacked by a case of the clumsies? You just might have met a Phi! These guys delight in making trouble for humans. Phi are lower elves, that are (luckily) not that powerful, but that doesn’t make them any less annoying. They like to live in trees and large bushes and can change color and shape to blend into their surroundings.

She may look cute, but she’s no Tinkerbelle. Phi survive by sipping the residue of magic from the air. For this reason it isn’t uncommon to find a gaggle of Phi living near werewolf compounds, elven villages, and covens. They are the magical scavengers of the MagKaen, and always happen to be around when you’d least expect it. Need information? Talk to a Phi. Just make sure you bring them an offering ‘worthy’ of your request. The last thing you want is to get on their bad side. Think angry magical bumble bees that will never let you sleep again.

But don’t be too nice! These little guys have a tendency to fall in love at first sight. Especially the females. Women hold on to your husbands, she may only be about 8 inches tall but she packs a powerful allure when she wants to. If you are male you might just find yourself at the mercy of her tiny little paws, if you’re a female, make sure you have a bucket ready. Woman have been known to be taken by a sudden case of uncontrollable nausea when standing in the way of a love struck Phi.

 

But you don’t have to take Mercy’s interpretation! Find out more about the Phi at the links below.

Tarot of Inspiration: Judgment

Sometimes we reach a point in the story where we aren't sure which way a character needs to go to reach her destination. Maybe a little divination is in order! Mercy say what??? That’s right! Let the divine guide you when you need a push in the right direction.


Judgment
This card is an emotive one. The image alone provokes feelings and mental sensations that might give you some insight into your character’s inner motivation. The angel raises his hands in supplication. Releasing himself to the flow of life. Figures dance below him in various poses that represent the trials of the past. This is a card of resurrection. The connection of the divine with the individual. Liberation from the past, and inspiration for the future.

If your character draws this card, she might be in for a wakeup call. The endless cycle of destruction and rebirth are at hand, and the day of reckoning has arrived. The time to face the demons of the past has come. Reveal your character’s inner struggle with things that have happened in the past. Set her in the direction towards resolving these wrongs so that she can be reborn even stronger than before. Make it a lesson learned.

The journey is almost done. Maybe she is realizing the consequences of her actions, maybe its time for her to reach a turning point in the story. This card might call for a pitfall in the plot. The return of someone that was wronged in the past, or even the results of something set in motion earlier in the story. This is the meat between the bread, the drive behind the character, and the manifestation of the motivation behind the plot line. Will she overcome? You decide.

Happy Writing!!!
