Landing Page: The Angel Universe

I sometimes write stories set in a polytheistic world where angels are a theological and objective physical reality, created by the gods as their servants. The Benarians are convinced that they are the favoured people of the gods, while angels recruit and drop a word, or a scroll, in the ears of the wise to influence events and outside the bounds of creation the vard plot to undo everything. This is the home of Tala, the angel in service to Thaladaneth, The Thirteenth Swordlord known also as The Black Scabbard.

The stories in this universe so far are:


Choices And Consequences;

Just Curious;

An Angel With A Message;

The Man With The Bucket;

The First Of Her Kind;

The Work

Might Have Beens;

Tala’s Fight;

An Instructive Conversation;

The Need For Vigilance;

How Large Is The Problem;

Some Days Are Worse Than Others;


Finding Something To Run To;

Correcting Assumptions;

A Philosophical Discussion;



Back When There Was Water On The Moon;


A Staff With a Knob On It; and

Initial Orders.

Re: Woo landing page.

Thank you for the catch on Afterlife - it has been fixed.

A wiki for this setting has been suggested, so thank you for the above.

This is another setting that I quite enjoy - more than I thought I might from its brief description, but I'm not sure precisely why I was unsure. Possibly the attitude of the Benarians, but we really haven't had to deal with that much. At any rate, we likes it!

The Benarians were in the very first stories, so I thought they would be more prominent.
