Welcome to Sylum Clan

Hello!  Welcome to Sylum!

Recently we’ve had newbies and some poor souls that have stumbled onto Sylum with no idea what the crazy is all about.  I figured it was time to do a ‘Sticky Post‘ to help all those who wander into the Manor, navigate around this vast universe.

So here we go.

***

If you’re new here, welcome!!  You’ve just been recommended to this vast multi-story universe, and you likely have no idea where to go or what to do.

Well first off.

Fact: Vampires exists.

Second.

Welcome to Sylum Clan.

A multi-layered, character driven storyverse.

Inspiration for the first story that effectively launched this concept, was the death of Timothy ‘Speed’ Speedle from the Television Series CSI: Miami.

His implausible and much mourned demise, led to the premise that you can’t kill someone if they’re already dead.

This quite literally immortalized him, birthing the first story Kiss of Death, and the rest just kept on growing, sprawling  across more than 7,000 years of unexpected history, and on into the future.

A few things you should know, so you can’t say we didn’t warn you *grins*.  There are 3 Major Story Arcs, and hundreds of Supplemental Stories.  These stories expand across 13 Clans, 7 Kin Clans, and showcase over 1200 Characters.

We just hit our 15th Anniversary in 2020!

Sylum Inspiration: Ysabel Lomelin

Integridad: Hunter

 

Ysabel was the third daughter of a Merchant family.   She was nothing like her sisters, had no interest in being a wife or mother.  She spoke her mind, drank with the boys, and had no problem finding a solution to her problems.

Which was what led her to Nerha Silks looking for Máximo, trying to make a deal with him to marry her, as she wasn’t happy her father promised her hand in marriage to an Don, whose granddaughter was five years younger than Ysabel.   Instead Aguilar offered her the title of widow.

She instantly forced her way into the small family.   It didn’t take her long to learn about Assassins, which she demanded to be trained, and when she learned about Vampires she just gave Máximo a look.  He sighed and Turned her.

Lego Day

 

Legos! 

We all had them!  Stepped on them in the middle of the night!

What was your favorite as a kid? Or do you still play with them!?

Sylum Casting Update!

So we’ve made another casting change!  The character has been hinted at, but won’t show up for a while yet in Sylum.

We had been keeping an eye on the situation, watching and analyzing until we could be sure to either dump the actor or go with it.

Recently – it was decided to not go with the original actor ’cause they just slid over that line and kept on going.

So – today we’re introducing the new Sam Witwicky! 

Check under the link to see who it is! What?  Let me have my dramatic moment!!

Sylum Inspiration: Trevor Hanaway

Ehre/Weisheit: Hunter

Trevor was born into an upper middle class family, and raised just outside San Francisco, California.   Had a good education, played baseball in high school, got a scholarship to attended Berkley.

It was from there he was recruited into IMF.

He was an exceptional agent, his knowledge and language skills made him an expert in Eastern Europe.

No one knows for sure when his relationship with Jane Carter started, but the two were an exceptional team despite being lovers.

It was a mission in Budapest, when everything went south.

As Trevor laid on the cold ground dying he regretted his fuck up was going to put his love in harms way.

When Benji offered him a chance to live, he took it.

State of the Clan: 2023

It’s officially 2023!  Three years into a … well lets be honest … a pretty fucked up decade!

Though 2022 was slightly better than it’s two predecessors it was still fairly rough.   On a personal note, my health improved, unfortunately had a slight backtrack, though not as bad as a trip to the ER – so lets count that as a win.  The good news, was able to establish a good doctor, got on a better treatment program which seems to be working.   I had a lot more energy this year, and was able to finally finish one smaller story (showcased during Seven Days) and two major stories (showcased during Advent) plus update two videos, and a good amount of Aesthetics.

To continue the good news (at least on my end) I have a new job.  I started at the beginning of this year, and well to be honest prepped a good amount of posts for the new year a head of time!  Once things settle, I’ll be back into the daily grind that is Sylum.

Now before we get into the actual State of the Clan, a few things.

Sylum is and forever will be a safe place!

We work hard to make this place as stress free as possible.  Rarely dive into politics, or into aspects world events.

Our goal is to bring a smile and fun to your inbox each day.

Now on to the State of the Clan!
