Chronicle of the Eternal

Synopsis

In the year XX, the human population exhausted the world’s resources, leading to cataclysmic environment changes and the imminent extinction of all life on the planet. Frantic space exploration became the world’s focus, but failed to find a new world for the human race. In desperation, humanity went digital. Minds were scanned, encoded, and transferred to the virtual world of Grandosa. Manual labor and power production were entirely automated. Reproduction among those once human is now a cold, sterile affair fraught with new complications.

Regal is a young boy who was born 222 years after the inception of Grandosa. He is what is referred to as a Soulless; someone accused of lacking a soul due to diminished emotions and driven by logic. His parents abandoned him, choosing the Eternal Rest. He is left with no one to rely on other than himself as a series of unfortunate events force him to adjust his outlook on life.

Regal’s school years teach him that there is more to this world than meets the eye. What he doesn’t yet realize is that his future is full of turmoil that will threaten his very existence. His only path through these trials is to rise above, to stand and defend a life that no one other than himself can see.

  1. I have been trying to think up something that doesn’t contain spoilers. Or at least, nothing too much of a give away. I will try get something posted today or tomorrow.

    1. Just my 2 cents, but I almost didn’t read this book because of the synopsis. It made it seem like I was going to be reading about a sociopath, and that wasn’t something I was interested in. The only reason I gave it a shot was because I like End Online so much. I’m glad I did because it might end up being better.

          1. Thought the synopsis was intriguing. Idk how much it’s changed since then, but although it says soulless, it also says driven by logic. Reminds me more of a “science emerging from magic” kind of vibe…which is ironic given the setting but lolz, I’m looking forward to the read 😀

          2. there also a logic in that you are standing in cworded room with other people. and you geet hungry. you look over the person next to and think “oh look it’s a delightful bag of meat.” nom nom nom
            in nature cannibalium i very common. which most beings in nature are thinking in basic logic. what wrong with cannibalium. besides that idea of “morals”

    1. No problem. To keep it short:

      – Trying to quickly finish writing chapter 42 (nearly there! 90%)
      – Post double release and site update
      – Finish EO book 6
      – Start on EO book 7 and COTE book 2

      ^.^

  4. I read a good fan fiction on royal road that was a crossover of sci-fi and fantasy, liked it and was searching for any kind of other story like it and found a genre known as Science Fantasy, and got to thinking that COTE fits the bill for it with its implementation of magic and advanced guns. Thought it would be a nice little fact to find out and let others know about it.

  5. Does that synopsis remind anyone else of the “Necrontyr” or “Necrons” from Warhammer 40k? The entire thing gives off a bit of the morbid feeling that the Necrontyr and their “grave” attitudes give.

      1. I suspect it will be much sooner than that. Volume 2 of COTE is my primary aim at the moment. I will do 4 chapters of COTE to every 1 chapter of EO, focusing completely on COTE when it nears completion. I hope to have the volume finished before the end of December.
