Someone else said Aloha... I used to write a lot but took a break for some time. I've decided to get myself back into it and have begun some setting development on a blog (link in the signature). I've come here for some critique. I'm predominantly a fantasy author. While the 'science fiction western' is my favourite genre, I'm smart enough to know that my knowledge of physics would make anything I write look like Star Wars or Andromeda (which are fantasy in space, not science fiction, IMAO). I like going places that others haven't or turning cliches on their head. There have been plenty of fantasies based off of Christian or Norse history and theology, but I don't think I've ever crossed one based on Jewish history and theology. I've used Jewish history and theology to inspire two fantasy worlds, one of which I've posted in the settings section. I also had a Dungeons and Dragons based setting about a war between Heaven and Hell with major variations. Heaven was controlled by archangels rather than good gods and Hell was controlled by daemon lords rather than evil gods. Every universe the archangels created had been taken over by the daemon lords because the archangels always attempted to control the situation on their own rather than allowing their followers to fight. The good guy is a ranger/necromancer with ADHD that becomes a lich and spends a good portion of his life as an assassin for his evil uncle.
