Yscariot™ is the story of a Heroic Fantasy novel with 3-chapter novellas being released seasonally between 2014 and 2015. The story and all of the initial art was created by the author, Marcus Medina. Illustration work is provided by Gladys Betiles.
Primarily focusing on the Hero’s Epic, it ultimately follows the life of Yscariot, a troubled teenager, who inherits a power that changes him into a superhuman. The story takes place on a modern Earth in an alternate universe.
The story was created over a 19-year time span (first drafted in September 18th, 1998) and was finally put into work in January 2013. Originally a high school short story project, the story grew over time with certain improvements being made in order to add more life to the characters and the world that they live in.
A few themes and issues in the story cover: bullying, art of fighting, and mysticism. More information will be revealed during the release of the completed story.
Yscariot’s storyline is split into TWO complete stories.
The Gospel of Yscariot: An original story created between 1998-2001. The story contained 6 parts which are now recognized as Chapters. A chapter is about a full-sized book long. For example, Yscariot: Sphere of Light, is a single chapter and is currently over 65,000 words long.
The Chronicles of Yscariot: are a series of side-stories intended to go deeper into the Yscariot storyline. So far, every side-story was created between the years of 2002-2013.
