Hey guys! it's time to put the sequel to the Underdogs out there. If you have not yet read my other story "The Underdogs" I suggest doing so first. however, you can still enjoy this story without knowing what happened in the Underdogs. please let me know any way I can improve and share your thoughts.
Please note that this is a first person POV, but every chapter the POV changes characters (which will be indicated at the top of each chapter :) weird I know
The people of Northern Talmeir have practiced magic since the beginning of time. At first spells and magic were just used for practical and harmless tasks. It didn't take long for that to change, magic quickly became a form of competition and everyone wanted to be spell masters and desired more powers and spells. There became a point where spell casters and the spells they used were too powerful to be wasted on competition and trivial tasks. People are no longer contempt after becoming a spell master, people wanted more power, more spells, more glory, more blood.
A group of spell masters formed a group called Northern Anti-terrorism Special Forces (NASF) was formed and given the task of protecting the people of Northern Talmeir from power hungry spell casters. All the magic schools in the North give a list of all spell casters to the General of NASF, who will then select the 10 best every year. This system was supposed to ensure that NASF remained in control of the other militaries and succeeded up until now.
A group of spell masters who go by the name “Magic Council” used their vast amount of power and knowledge to take control of many villages and blood lines. The Magic Council believes that magic has become too advanced to be trusted with just anyone, which most people agreed. The part that not everyone agreed with is what the magic council does..
The magic council demands money and loyalty from all, even those who have no money. It was an easy system, pay and bow or die. NASF of course steps in as the Magic Council went too far with this system. Unfortunately the Magic council consists of high spell masters who outpower even those in NASF. Fifty years later NASF has not yet put an end to these terrorist Magic Council members, and every year it gets worse.
Hey guys, This is a story I partially wrote as a kid when I was borderline illiterate. I always had the ideas and creativity to write, but I didn't have the skills. My friends have helped me come along way but I still have a lot to learn. I love feedback even if it points out weaknesses.
also just a note, the names of the characters may seem ridiculous, but let me explain. This story is inspired by many real life events however unrealistic it may seem. the setting and what not are totally false, but many of the characters are real people and a lot of the conversations, personal struggles, and fights, actually occurred.
Its a war story that takes place shortly after WW2, North America was almost wiped out in a coordinated mass attack that no one saw coming. The attack was defeated, just barely, and USA and Canada were forced to reissue conscription, but since there were so many losses. The minimum age was reduced to the point were 13 year old kids are on the front lines. Nothing big was expected of these kids, however, this story follows a group of kids that not only proved themselves, but gave the Allied forces a fighting chance.
this story has a lot of sarcasm and humor in it, but it is in general a very serious and develops into a dark, sad story. All thoughts are welcome :)
