Who is Elias Fenic?

A Texas kid with a wild imagination and a love for all things fantasy, Elias has always been a bit out of touch with reality. He always harbored a fascination with the dark, fantastical worlds created by many fiction authors, but it was dragons and the worlds they inhabited that dominated his imagination. As Elias grew older, it was no longer enough to experience the worlds created by others. He needed to create his own. So his journey to becoming an author began in 2008.

Emboldened by a discovered talent and determined to hone his craft, Elias devoured many books and whatever advice was offered. But it was the author Jenna Moreci and her YouTube channel that helped take his writing to the next level.

For over a decade now, Elias has been writing dark fantasy stories in the fantastical world of Albrene. But in 2019, Elias wrote Rise of The Witnesses, a Dungeons and Dragons campaign, for his college friends to play together. This campaign, set in Albrene, soon took on a life of its own, expanding far beyond what was initially written. Now, seven drafts later, Rise of The Witnesses, the first book in the Blight of Divinity series, is almost complete. And thanks to the campaign and the invaluable input of his players, there is a wealth of material waiting to be written in the many planned sequels and stories to come.

The Game That Started it All

Dungeons and Dragons has been a passion of Elias Fenic's for many years. As the head of his college D&D club and a skilled dungeon master, he has always relished the opportunity to create unique stories and worlds within the game. However, in early 2019, Elias found himself between campaigns and channeled his creativity into completing his first book.

But his players had other ideas. They urged him to write a campaign in the world of Blight of Divinity, using their characters and backgrounds as inspiration. And thus, Rise of The Witnesses was born. It was to be a prequel to my then nearly complete book, but developed into an entire trilogy.

Through more than a year of marathon gaming sessions, Elias Fenic and his players crafted an epic tale filled with adventure, mystery, and thrilling battles. It was an unforgettable experience and one that will always hold a special place in his heart. Elias Fenic's skill at crafting stories has dramatically improved over the course of the campaign, and he now has the fuel to keep this series going for many books to come.
