What is The Mythic Chess Set?
The Mythic Chess Set is a trilogy of stories written by Georgia Z. They will be presented here at SeeDarkly.com as a web serial -- one page at a time, three times a week.
Book I - The Myth Prosaic
Charles is a computer-smart college graduate in the not-distant future. Continued survival depends on either finding scarce employment within the walled cities or enlisting to fight in the never-ending war. The only other option is to venture beyond the safety of the city walls and join the disenfranchised in the overgrown remains of civilization past.
His free time is spent playing a character in a fantasy role-playing game: a master thief named Chess. The game, transmitted by the underground guild Lodestar, offers entertainment outside the government-approved, corporate-dominated channels. But only for those who can navigate the technology to find it.
Feeling like an outsider within the walls of civ and wary of his prospects for the future, he decides to leave - entering a world where the line between reality and the character he role-plays begins to blur. Soon, the power of imagined stories begins to shape the dangerous land he travels, as he outwits villains, unravels a mystery, and discovers allies, friends, and lovers during his quest for a place to belong.
Book II - The Myth Heroic (to be released 2015)
Chess the thief has become Chess the storyteller and wanderer. Traveling through the villages that sit outside civilization, he shares knowledge and brings hope through stories. But, as time goes on, even the stories he tells cannot match the epic tales that others spread about him.
Chess's home is becoming a community of outsiders drawn by a clandestine patchwork of communications and the stories of his adventures. He has gained much experience while roaming far from there. But now strange events make him question if there is a supernatural being set on vengeance against him… or has the voice in his head somehow become real?
Meanwhile, with the help of new friends and old, Chess takes on a formidable mission that might give the world just one tiny sign of hope. Could he be the hero so many stories claim he is?
Book III - The Myth Transcendant (release date TBD)
Chess’s journeys through the anarchic wilderness are fraught with danger. But those dangers are trivial compared to the risks faced by his allies, who try to work within the systems of civilization to create change.
