About Universal Warrior
If I had to categorize Universal Warrior, I would call it Battle Fantasy;
-The story revolves around physical battle. Virtually every character has a reason to battle one another, if they so chose.
-There is growth in battle. Characters grow and develop from their battles against each other.
-There are consequences to battle. Universal Warrior takes place in this life and the next. Combatants answer for their deeds in the next life.
-Battles level the playing field. This is man from gods, man with gods, and eventually, man against gods. Fighting is the one thing
both man and the gods have in common.
-Battles resolve wars. For if it is really On Earth, As It Is In Heaven, then there is war in Heaven. This series explores that, and the consequences it has on our world.
Universal Warrior traverses multiple time periods ranging from the beginning of time to the end of the world and the creation of the new world. This covers the stories
currently available or the events I know about now.
Setting of the Era of the Scourge, Atherean Defenders, and the Last Campaign series. Before the nations split, when the Earth was known as the Third World.
Before Heaven and Hell were known by their common names. Before the division of gods. Rise of the archangels. Fall of Lucifer.
Recent past; 1970's to 2000's. Setting of the Lee Ambrose saga.
Immediate future. Setting of the Kyle Ambrose saga. The final seven years of the universe's existence.
-Neo Alpha Period
Far, far future. New heaven, new earth. Setting of the Moment of Impact series.
While religion heavily influences a lot of Universal Warrior, I didn't want to stick to any one god or another. Instead I wanted to explore the origins
of mythology while adding my own ideas.
Universal Warrior is currently in the Alpha Period, exploring the first time the Four Horsemen were visited upon our world. They ruled us for
more than a century before we banded together to take them on. The Era of the Scourge tells the stories of their rise, along with the ascension of those
who would challenge them. Ultimately, this is what Universal Warrior is about; setting aside differences and banding together to take on a bigger foe.
