Thank you!

I'm glad you enjoyed this.

Yes, I wanted to set aside all the standard fantasy humanoids and make all new ones, just keeping the dragons as the lead motif. So I worked out some base concepts and mixed them up to create new species. Each one has its own appearance, its own strengths and weaknesses. As the series grows, we'll get to see more of them in detail.

Re: Thank you!

It's always good to see new fantasy species, and I'm looking forward to read more about them.

Re: Thank you!

So far, I'm halfway through the Six Poems of the Fall. Which is really six and a half, because there's another major dragon attack on a refugee camp that will actually be the next one written, but they officially count just the ones about sacking the capital cities. (This parallels the Six Races, when the dragons comprise a seventh sapient species not generally recognized.)

The other poems explore what happens to some of the survivors after the various incidents. Keep an eye for "Making Waves" to get posted, because that one looks at what happens when a Madhusudana takes refuge in the desert, really not a good environment for that race. Hopefully it will get sponsored during the half-price sale later this month.
