    In honor of the re-posting of Family, I was going to go back and re-read the first two arcs and it reminded me of a question. Is Annihilation going to be next on the re-posting (with new canon adjustments)?

    • Bj Jones says:

      Annihilation is next for reworking – probably be reported late this year or early next…

      It’s region to find the balance between continue working on new a m d go back to old.

      Family was needed for Evolution – so was done first

  2. kathic2010 says:

    Where can I find Demons and Angels? I looked in the archive and didn’t find it. Am I going nuts?

    Kathi

    • Bj Jones says:

      It’s not in Archive – it was part of the Sylum Advent – go to tags and either click Creative Consultant: Timothy Quinn or click on Sylum Advent – it will pull up post for Demons/Angels on bottom of post is link click it leads to Advent Stories the first story is Demons/Angels

  3. kathi_c says:

    Thanks. I thought I was losing my mind more than I usually do.

  4. LadyComet says:

    I was just wondering what the backstory is for the character of Cassie. All I can remember is that it is mentioned that Nick saved her. And in the repost of family it says that she was lost and Nick found her. But I don’t remember reading an origin story for her. Also, I’m confused on which fandom she comes from. Is she the Cassie from Stargate or was there a Cassie in CSI? And finally how old is she supposed to be, I always imagine her as being about 12 but I’m not sure the stories ever say.

    • Bj Jones says:

      Cassie is from an episode of CSI – her family ran a medial majariuna farm – they were killed but she was missing. Nick had refused to give up on her, and in the end found her just in time. Her story is inside Annihilation and as that is being reworked – it’s not well known. Lara and Indy adopt her at the request of Nick, since he couldn’t at the time working as a CSI and in a relationship with Warrick. So she lives and goes to school in New Orleans, and as much as she loves Lara and Indy – she has a very special bond with Nick.

      In Family she’s 9

      Hope that helps.

  5. Okay…I have a bunny running through my head. I have been watching a lot of Top Gear(UK) recently and I keep picturing various members of Camelot as the Stig. In my head it’s mostly Draco but it could be anyone…..

  6. Skrållan says:

    Ernesto Olivetti’s kids – how old are they?

  7. I’m not sure who has heard but there were a couple of explosions near the finish line of today’s Boston Marathon. I hope that fellow clan members as well as their friends and family are safe…

  8. Skrållan says:

    Am I assuming right in that Sean Caine doesn’t have the soul of Kate Todd this time around? Since it wasn’t mentioned it Family?

  9. I’m new to all of this, so bear with me please…. I am enjoying the three arcs so much. Where can I find the updated family story, and also are there stories that are post stories for the three main arcs? Thanks!

    • Bj Jones says:

      First off welcome to Sylum 😀

      Family Re-Post – go to Categories: Sylum Stories: Family Arc – it will pull up all the posts for each chapter or you can click on the tag: Sylum Arc: Family

      For other stories go to the Sylum Wiki – click on Sylum Story Listings – there is a list of all Sylum Stories that are posted on the Archive. And it will show you where they fall w/in the Timeline before, during, between and after the published Arcs.

      If you have any other questions feel free to reply back to this post – will help anyway I can

      • Hey~ I saw on the manor website that family was the last arc of the story, or the third arc… was the first arc, the clan war arc reposted yet?

        • Bj Jones says:

          Clan war is the first – which is finished fully

          Annihilation is the second – which is scheduled to be updated and reworked – the story can still be read but some moments/characters/pairings will not match wiki or other storyline

          Family is the third – which had just got re-posted to the blog

          Evoluton is the fourth – which will be posted for the first time mod may

          That help??

  10. murgy31 says:

    Thank you so much~ I appreciate your patience and time.

  11. Why are some stories, like Demons and Angels, posted here but not at the Sylum Archive? Also, when will Rider on a White Horse be posted?

    • Bj Jones says:

      Stories that were posted for Advent will make there way to the Archive – when it does the post will be labeled ‘Archived’ and an announcement will be made when stories are Archived

      Rider on a white horse is still in early stages of development at the moment.

  12. Susan Crago says:

    I am trying to log in to see the Evolution trailer. I have the roman one, but its asking for my password and is not accepting what I think it is. Can you help?

  13. Skrållan says:

    So I had a question, for some silly reason I watched documentary on the tsunami of 2004 in Asia and was just wondering if any of the clans lost any members to it? (that is what you end up thinking of while obsessing on Sylum while waiting for new chapters of evolution :D)

    • Bj Jones says:

      Since there isn’t a strong clan presence in all of Asia – Shogun is in Upper Japan – the likely of losing Clan Members is minimal. And a Vampire has the ability to survive a Tsunami.

      Chosen Ones – they probably would have lost.

      We try incorporate real world events into the storylines. As we develop more of Shogun and that area, its likely these events will show up.

  14. Kathi says:

    I wanted to thank you for broadening my horizons. Through your stories, looking for background on characters, I have found a lot of good movies and television shows that I now enjoy.

    Also I was wondering if you’ve thought about the movie ‘The Expendables’? I think they would make some kick-ass hunters.

    • Bj Jones says:

      Your Welcome!!

      I’m glad you’re enjoying the series…

      As for Expendables you can pretty much find the cast all over the clans in variety of ways. Those who aren’t are likely to show up in the future 😀

  15. nyx_girl says:

    Hi got a question on Jeffrey Dean Morgan, he is portrait in the series with characters like John Winchester, Clay, The Comedian and Isaac Evans among others, how do the Winchesters fit the family tree?

    I loved the series, awesome world you build with so many possibilities!

    I also wondered will “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” make an appearance on sylum’s universe?

    • Bj Jones says:

      Some of how they are all connected will come out in storyline…

      But a few connections I can point out – the line goes back to Winceslcas … and splits Europe/American – via Clay (Europe) and Paul Bunyon (US).

      In Isaac’s bio its states his brother is Edward Blake Morgan (aka Comedian).

      And in John’s bio – it states he doesn’t know who his father is (we did not take all aspects of John’s bio from SPN)

      As for Hansel/Gretel – we actually have a Hansel and Gretel they are in Weisheit Kin Clan.

      And the two actors in the movie are already Hunters in other Clans – William Brandenstein and Tamina.

      So no we won’t be bringing in the movie per say.

      • nyx_girl says:

        Thank you for the answers, keeping with the family trees in this ‘verse is hard!
        They are usually connected if not by blood them by their past lives, I love it.

        • Bj Jones says:

          Yes it is 🙂 even I get lost … We’re goin to be working on setting up family lines trees and posting them on the blog/wiki

  16. merthyl says:

    Hi, where i can find info about bobby singer is dean’s father?? and the story about the macmanus, specially their father??

    Also, in Roads, williiam lennox has dreams about his past life. Is there any story about it?

    Thanks ^^

    • Bj Jones says:

      The MacManus storyline is still being written and hasn’t come out yet.

      As for Bobby – he’s not Dean’s biological father… Dean has the soul of Bobby’s son who died during the Civil War – this will come out in a series of Winchester stories – hopefully for Advent.

      No stories on his past lifes… you can get more history and some information of Lennox in – How to Raise an American Soldier – which is in the Archive.

  17. Has Clan War been redone to fit Family and Evolution?

  18. murgy31 says:

    Did you make many changes to it from when you originally posted. I am trying to remember… I think I read it in the last year

  19. merthyl says:

    Do “Demons and angels” and “Roads” have a soundtrack? Do the characters of star trek (the last film) and star wars are in the story?

    • Bj Jones says:

      Demons and Angels – doesn’t have a Sylum Soundtrack – the best thing to do is just to get Angels and Demons Score by Hans Zimmer.

      Roads doesn’t at this time… but graphic gecko is roaming around. Now it does have a song that inspired the title and a video is in the process. Roads Untraveled by Linkin Park.

    • Bj Jones says:

      And missed the 2nd part of the question.

      At the moment neither Star Trek or Star Wars characters have appeared in Sylum.

  20. murgy31 says:

    where on the webpage is the video?

  21. murgy31 says:

    I am not positive this is where I leave this…. I had a question about Mac and Danny…. is their story explained in Annihilation or someplace else, and if so where? Thanks~

    • Bj Jones says:

      There’s a story in the archive under Sylum Side Stories – Between Clan War and Annihilation … Labeled Consent and Hunters (I think) by Bj Jones…

      This will explain Danny – Macs Turning is in Annihilation which is being reworked

      Hope that helps

  22. murgy31 says:

    Thank you so much~

  23. murgy31 says:

    who is Hannibal, and what face did you use for him?

    • Bj Jones says:

      Hannibal King played by Ryan Reynolds – should find him at the Sylum wiki … Link is on the left handside panel.

      I usually tell people to keep the wiki open to find characters bios to get feel for and see their image

  24. murgy31 says:

    Thank you…. I am just beginning to delve into this verse, and I get confused at times.

    • Bj Jones says:

      No problem – what this thread is here for… The wiki is always helpful but all the information isn’t there – so if any questions just ask 🙂

  25. murgy31 says:

    I was wondering how I find the advent stories? Is that on the wiiki too?

    • Bj Jones says:

      Advent stories are still on the ‘events page’ – go to the Tags and click Sylum: Advent – click on it … On any of tr fic post click the link and it will lead you to all the stories that were for Advent

  26. kathic2010 says:

    I was reading the Seven Days stories but when I tried to get the picspams, I couldn’t. Have they been moved or removed?

    • Bj Jones says:

      This is last years Seven Days? Yeah the pic spams were taken down months ago – it takes a lot of space up and we were prepping for Advent, Family then Evolution.

      I would snag the Advent ones ASAP. We’ll be making sure to make announcements via blog when Pic Spams will be removed from here on out.

      Thanks.

  27. murgy31 says:

    Hey~ I was wondering if there were any stories that were about Gregory House, and if so what they were? Thanks~

    • Bj Jones says:

      Actually at the moment there are no side stories about House. His story has come out more in other stories and in the major Arcs

  28. murgy31 says:

    Okay thanks…. the character has always intrigued me so I was just wondering.

  29. TT says:

    Hello,

    I was watching empire records and I was interested in rereading the stories about Lucas and they other vampires seeing him on the news and the story about him being turned but I could not find them in the archive. Do you know where I can find these stories?

    Thanks!
    TT

  30. kathic2010 says:

    I know Race and Demons and Angels are must reads to understand things in Family and Evolution but are there others that you would consider in the same category? Not that I don’t enjoy them all but what would you say are must reads?

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Roads Untravelled.

      There’s a top ten list on the blog that gives the top ten must reads – you can find it on tags Sylum Top Ten

  31. kathic2010 says:

    Thanks. Found the list. Now I’m off for a massive read and reread.

  32. merthyl says:

    I’m reading the Dan Brown’s new book “Inferno” and i want to ask, will be there a must read new story about the Lealta Kin clan’s members, specially Robert Langdon, Da Vinci, Michaelangelo… Sometimes I think where is Olivetti saving the day? Dante Alighieri is a Vampire and/or Illuminati??

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Tim is reading Inferno so we’ll have to see what Evil Bob 2 does with it.

      As for Ernesto – he’s already got himself another major story… he’s sneaky that way.

  33. merthyl says:

    A new Story!!!…OMG!!!!
    I cant wait for both storys…

  34. Is there a way to find stories based on particular characters? I’m kinda a nerd about the “where” and “when” and “how” stuff, and the story listings are kind of difficult for me to navigate.

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      The stories at listed by timeline – in the Archive they have the characters in the story listed.

      Any particular characters – I could point you in the right direction

  35. kathic2010 says:

    If we want to do Sylum fanart, does it have to be approved before posting? I would love to do some.

  36. kathic2010 says:

    Forgot the second part of the question. Is there anything you wouldn;t want done?

  37. merthyl says:

    Where I can find info about:

    a) Ezio Auditore da Firenze, because i don’t know him? Is He a character in a Game, Book, Tv serie, movie???

    b) Romulus and Remus… I know the basic, what teach me in school but more than that…

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Ezio is from the video game series Assassins Creed – there is a series of books by Oliver Bowden that is bass off the game

      For Remus/Romulus – Sylum wise still being worked on but to get a good idea on early Roman history – myth of Rome – etc

  38. merthyl says:

    Will be new characters in the new arcs? Cause, i was watching kingdom of heaven and I think -“is Balian Will Turner’s ancestor?”

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      There will be intro to new characters in the new Arc…

      We already are using characters from Kingdom of Heaven and decided not to use Balian.

  39. Gregory House says:

    This isn’t really a Sylum question, but more of a site question… is there a way to add an icon to the good doctor’s name. If so what size?

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Let me get back to you on that your not the only one who’s asked …

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      See if this works. Put your mouse over your icon – it should pop up and state Gavatars or something similar – click will ask you to make an account.

      If this doesn’t work or you can’t click on the icon – it could be because the account you have though is subscribed to his blog – is not an actual wordpress account.

      Let me know what happens and we’ll see what we can do.

      • Gregory House says:

        It doesn’t show me anything when I go over the icon.

        • Nicolaus Meridius says:

          That means you would need a wordpress account. Since this blog is hosted on a private server not wordpress – I can get most of the features but some still want that ‘wordpress’ account.

          You can make an account and hook it up to this one (I’m not quite sure how but can look into it – though that maybe tomorrow) Sorry 🙁 I’m still learning how this all works.

          • Gregory House says:

            That’s okay…. it sounds like a lot of work… I appreciate the offer. I can live without a pic. Thank you though. 🙂

          • Nicolaus Meridius says:

            I’m noticing that the ones who have images – have wordpress accounts.

            Or they sign in using facebook, twitter…..

            I’ll get it all figured out in time 😀

  40. Gregory House says:

    Thank you~

  41. Gregory House says:

    I wonder if I could email word press and ask if there is a way to link accounts.

  42. Gregory House says:

    Hi again~ I tend to have a lot of questions. I was wondering if you could tell me where the Battle of Hamunaptra fell in the timeline? Thanks 🙂

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      The battle is in the middle if Family – it’s the name of the big battle to save Nico.

  43. Gregory House says:

    Thank you~ I thought it might be,

  44. Gregory House says:

    Hi~ I was wondering if there was a place to ask specific plot related questions about a certain story ark. I don’t want to spoil anyone, but I had a question.

  45. Gregory House says:

    I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of some back story stories for Nick and Warrick.

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Tim Quinn has a lot of stories of Nick/Warrick.

      But at this time all of Nick/Warrick’s stories are integrated in other major stories – like the Arcs, the Pirate stories etc…

  46. Gregory House says:

    Okay, thank you…. I’ll definitely check the pirate stories out, and the stuff by Tim. 🙂

  47. Kathie says:

    Hello. One quick question about Tony and Ezio. Was Ezio hunting Tony when they met? Is there a story about why he was?

  48. Kathie says:

    Thanks. 🙂

  49. Domenico says:

    I was getting ready to read Don’t Fear the Reaper by Shep and it pointed to Of Bonds and New Beginnings by Gil. I am unable to locate it. Was it removed?

  50. Riddick says:

    Was Ernesto Nekau’s protector in a past life, or did he know Nick for another life other than Sofya?

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      He wasn’t Nekau’s protector but he does know Nick from another past life besides Sofya…

      • Riddick says:

        Thank you General. I know it seems I’m awake quite late, but I live in Passion’s Territory, so for me it was afternoon ish.

        • Riddick says:

          Sorry!!! My mistake, I live in Integridad’s Territory.

          • Nicolaus Meridius says:

            I’ve gotten used to comments/emails/questions from variety of times – just don’t always get to them as quickly 😀

            Though may poke you for info in your side of the woods – when get to working on some Integridad’s landscape

  51. Riddick says:

    No problem, and thanks for creating this wonderful world and sharing it with us.

  52. Sheryl Vahle says:

    I wanted to know who is the right person to notify that there is a bad link on the Sylum Clan Story Index. Specifically Gil Grissom’s Of Bondings and Revelations actually goes to On the Shores of Cape Sounion. And On the Shores of Cape Sounion goes there also.

    Sheryl

  53. Sheryl Vahle says:

    Oops it should have been “Of Bondings and New Beginnings” that goes to the wrong story. Sheryl

  54. Kathie says:

    Just wanted to comment that I noticed NCIS is planning a spinoff NCIS:New Orleans. Guess someone has been reading this fabulous universe. 🙂

  55. chimera01 says:

    I’m looking for the story of how Sam and Dean Winchester got turned, so I can re-read it before the I read the Advent story. Can you help?

  56. chimera01 says:

    Are we ever going to hear more about Ryan Wolfe and his mission in Miami spying on Natalya? Or Calleigh? Love those characters.

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Storylines have adjusted and changed since the early years of Sylum, when things were just starting out.

      Very likely there will be little storyline developing past Family that deals with Ryan or Calleigh – accept for the mention here and there about old friends/chosen ones.

  57. nightprowler8482 says:

    Are we allowed to have avatars and if so how do we go about changing them from the silhouette to the picture we want to use? Please, I hope you can help me. Thank you.

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      You can have avatars – how its done isn’t simple – hover over the shadowman and a card should show up click the gravatar icon and go from there.

      • nightprowler8482 says:

        Thank you, that was so helpful. I really appreciate you helping me and now I am so happy to get an avatar. 😀

  58. jacina says:

    Hi was just wondering if you had a timeline for when annihilation will be back up for viewing?

    thank you

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      The 10th Anniversary of Clan War and the re-post for Annihilation will be presented in 2015 for the big Sylum 10th Anniversary Celebration

  59. beth says:

    I’ve got a question but first I just want to say that I love the sylum clan stories, and now my question one of the stories that I’m reading is called Vacation Blues and its by Rayne, it shows that it hasn’t been update since 2008 , I was wondering and hoping if you can tell me is he or she still writing it and if and when they might update it. If you can’t answer it thinks for the help anyway and keep up the great work.

  60. Gregory House says:

    I just started watching Supernatural, and I was wondering if you could recommend some Sam/Dean Sylum fic for me to read? Thanks!

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      The first intro to Sam/Dean is Family, then more of their story is in Evolution.

      The only stand alone story is Carry On My Wayward Son – this was an Advent story.

  61. Gregory House says:

    Thank you so much! Was it this years Advent?

  62. wackyninja says:

    If I read Family without reading annihilation first, how lost will I be?

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Not very much actually. If something really pops up that makes you go (*what*) then come back here and ask away. But overall there’s a reason why it’s being overhauled 😀

  63. sneakylebeak says:

    Are there any plans for a story about Warrick’s turning?

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Actually in the 10th anniversary more will be learned about his turning 🙂

      • sneakylebeak says:

        Yes! Yes! Yes! I yearn for that story every time there is a passing mention of how guilty Nick feels about it.

        Thanks!

        And p.s. Sylum rocks! Thanks for sharing your vision with us!

  64. wackyninja says:

    any plans on including Q into the clans? can’t ever have too many hackers 🙂

  65. Antoinette says:

    Is there a world map showing the territory that each clan has?

  66. Antoinette says:

    Looking thru the Wiki, why no entry for Catherine Willows?

  67. Giulia says:

    I was wondering if it was time to organize the Christmas Card Exchange already… what do you say?

  68. chimera01 says:

    I admit that it has been a long time since I’ve read the story arcs, but I’m curious about the Advent this year. It looks like Brass is now Thomas’ mate, and Grissom is going to be a thorn for Nico for a long time. I Sara going to be a constant problem as well? I wonder because she was an annoyance of mine when I watched CSI long ago (I haven’t watched since Peterson left the show). In any case, I’m enjoying Advent, and now I want to re-read all the Arcs, from beginning to end, in order of relevance. Thanks for sharing.

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      What your seeing in Advent with the Anthology – is the changes made in the 10th Anniversary Edition of the Arcs.

      When the Special Edition Clan War and Annihilation come out during 2015 … you’ll see how Anthology all fits into it.

      Think of these now as a sneak peak 🙂

  69. kittydresden says:

    Happy New Year

    = Will there be any more stories or mentions of Xander Harris & Elliot Stabler with their developing relationship, meeting Elliot kids/friends & the threat of Livia?

    = Do Kevin Lynch & Xander Harris know about each other? if not, will they meet & get along? Thank You

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Stories for Elliot/Xander are on the to do list … they haven’t been forgotten.

      As for Kevin Lynch that is still in discussion on what to do with him, or if we even bring him in.

  70. chimera01 says:

    Totally enjoyed Advent this year! Thanks to everyone for a wonderful holiday read!

  71. vikigood92 says:

    Hello, I was wondering how to join the group. I clicked on the security link but there was just a blank yahoo page. Some help on that would be appreciated

  72. Hi/

    First I am sorry. I bet your sick of this question but I really want to know and can’t hide in the back wondering no more. When is Annihilation going to be re-posted? and is there somewhere i could read the original version?

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      When we started on Annihilation – it was realized we had to go back to the beginning. So re-work (10th Anniversary of Clan War) had to come first. That is coming out this year – right after it Annihilation.

      No there isn’t any place to read it – mainly because the problems with it was so bad – it was actually worse to have it up. To be honest there is nothing you’ll miss by going from Clan War to Family. If there is something that makes you go – wait what? You can always ask here and we’ll answer..

      • Michelle P says:

        Hi there. What an amazing body of work you have created and I for one am truly grateful. Is there any update on when Annihilation will be back up?

        • Nicolaus Meridius says:

          Clan War posting will start soon and work through Advent – after that Annihilation. Seriously though your not missing anything from Annihilation – if you have questions about storyline feel free to ask 🙂

          • Michelle P says:

            Thanks – I was just about to start re-reading clan war. Should I hold off?

          • Nicolaus Meridius says:

            You could – even with rewrite well be keep the old one up … KOD is already up on the 10th Anniversary page

  73. Michelle P says:

    OMG yes! Just found it and I love the updated version with just a brief look. Will probably read the old one just to give me a nice long read but looking forward to the revised arcs even more now 🙂

  74. Kathie says:

    I really love reading Annihilation. Lots of action and a lot of clan members involved. Are you planning this as a separate arc again, or is it all being meshed into one giant story with Clan War, Family and Evolution? I keep reading this over and over and I still love it. Thanks.

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Annihilation – will be a seperate arc. Though I admit for a while there was much discussion on moving things around. As we’re getting to the end of Clan War reworks – Annihilation is starting to pull together in a much better way than it had before. It will still have lots of action and intro to even more characters!

        Thanks. I enjoyed seeing more of Tony acting as the Second in Command and warrior he is. A warrior that old has to have some skills. I also love how the ‘younger’ Mates are so over protective of their older Mate. Thanks again.

    It’s been mentioned several places that after Warren was killed Nick went on a rampage. Did he travel with Tony, Speed, Thomas and Gabriel mostly? Or was it different people at different times?

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Im not sure I fully understand the question – are you asking if the four were with him during the rampage?? Or if throughout the years he’s traveled with them mostly or with others?

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      So thinking about this last night into morning – figured can answer both questions 🙂

      When Nico looses Warren yeah he doesn’t take it very well – Thomas, Timothy and Tony are with him during this time. Afterwards hes taken to Arthur, when Gabriel shows up and they go on a Hunt for Dracula – Thomas goes with them. They leave behind Timothy and Tony.

      Now for normal travel. NIco travels all around before he finds Tony in the 1100’s. He’s traveled with Arthur, Frank Hopkins, Gabriel, others etc. Once he gets Tony – he travels with him and Robin for a while. Robin settles in England, and in 1300’s the get Speed – by then he’s traveling mostly with his kids. When Thomas is Turned he doesn’t leave his Sire’s side no matter what. Even during the time after Warren’s death – Thomas is still with Nico – even though he disappears for a while. After he comes back – he is usually with his kids and later Warrick. There are still moments he takes cares of things w/out kids or Mate … though sneaky past Thomas is the hardest.

  76. Kathie says:

    Thank you for both answers. 🙂 I had a hunch, of course right after a posted the question, that it was various people at various times. Getting a lot of history from the CSI:Anthology. I could have sworn I read them before, but I must have missed a couple. Loving them as much as the story arcs. Thanks again.

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Glad you’re enjoying the Anthology – it gave us the opportunity to get some history out. There will be a Volume 2 for the Anthology that will set between Clan War and Annihilation … to set up more history and info.

  77. wackyninja says:

    Is there any way to get a complete list (all in one) of the stories in chronological order? I’m talking the main arcs with the side stories put in where they belong? If there is one already, sorry. Please and thank you.

  78. beth says:

    I’ve got 2 questions ,hope you can help. I’m trying to find the story where dean Winchester becomes a vampire, and is there going to be more stories about why Imhotep’s so interested in Dean ?

  79. Hi! I have been a member for awhile now but couldn’t connect via word press. Do you have a schedule for posting the arcs to clan war?

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      So far the schedule has been the 1st and 15th – next chapter will come out November 15th … Then we have Advent so after that will be in January

  80. Nicole says:

    Hi! Where can I find “The Darkest Hour” and “Say Goodnight Not Goodbye”?

  81. Kimberley says:

    I hope this isn’t a silly question, but are the side stories canon? I was trying to re-read in chronological order and got confused about Balthazar. ‘Carry on my Wayward Son’ takes place between Family and Evolution, but in ‘Carry On…’, Balthazar is dusted and in Evolution he seems to still be out there. Is he still a threat?
    Regardless of his status, I absolutely love this world you’ve created! I started reading it years ago and every time I come back to it, I feel like I’m visiting family. Words can’t express how much that means. 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing your considerable talents with us!

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      While writing Carry On … The bunny took off ending with Balthzars death – so that is canon but of course it means going to adjust evolution- I haven’t done it yet I’m waiting till we finish the adjustments on clan war and annihilation to do one big edit :).

      Thank you for reading and your comments 🙂

      • Kimberley says:

        Thank you! That makes perfect sense 🙂 I honestly don’t know how y’all can keep everything straight. It must be a monumental task! But it’s one that’s greatly appreciated. 🙂

  82. I’ve been quasi-binge watching the Chicago trilogy and kept thinking what a good fit they would be in Knight Clan. Is it possible we’ll see Voight, Severide, Trudy or any of them show up/

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      I wasn’t sure if this got deleted by mistake or purpose … but figured answer just in case.

      I’m not sure what show you’re referring to but we can take a look at it, and see if characters would work

      *makes notes*

      • Damaris Shade says:

        Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D. and Chicago Med. Hank Voight seems almost tailor made for Knight Clan. I also have a sweet spot for Oliver Platt 🙂

  83. Nicole says:

    Hi! When are there going to be more postings for the revamped Clan War arc?

  84. Taking a look through the newly vamped up wiki and site, am loving it so far. But I do have a question, has Michael and Selene from Underworld been scratched in the new revamping? I love those characters, so I would be sad to see them go.

  85. Linn Therese says:

    Will ‘Annihilation’ be put up again soon?

  86. Aeriel says:

    I was just wondering how the characters were chosen to be featured in Sylum cannon.

  87. Lynn says:

    Considering Ernesto’s love of speed, will he run into the nuts from Border at some point? Or is Kiernan trying to keep this from happening?

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      I’m not sure where the idea came that Ernesto has thing for ‘speed’ yes he drives like lunatic but thats normal for Rome 🙂 Besides he would be more Formula One than street racing.

      • Lynn says:

        Was a mix of his driving, his reaction to Speed having a Ducati, and the trip to Disneyland that made it seem that way for me. 🙂 …. If not Border, I could see Stark offering to let Ernesto drive a race car, if only to see the reactions of Kiernan, Nick, and the Pope.

        • Nicolaus Meridius says:

          I can see where the idea came from 🙂

          Ernesto is very Italian. His tastes will lie towards, Ferrari, Lamborghini, the Ducati. More interested in Formula One, than stock cars or street racing.

          We do have a story int he works where he gets to meet James Hunt and Alfredo ‘Dino’ Ferrari, and get to drive a Formula One race car.

          As for meeting ‘crazies’ in other Clans … there is a major storyline for the future that it’s not Ernesto who goes on a world tour, but the Pope… *evil cackle*

  88. Lynn says:

    Oooh, thanks for the tease 🙂 Sneaky Pope is awesome

  89. kerrie lane says:

    In Call To Arms there is mentioned of a break in at The Manor; “horrifying incident with the crazed stalker who had killed their last dogs and run amok in their rooms only to be found naked in their bed and begging for sex” was this part of an Arc and I just missed it? Thank you.

  90. Moreithel says:

    I’m trying to catch up with all the stories and I was wondering if I could download them in epub (or in another ebook format)? I really want them to carry on my ereader to work :3
    Thank you all for this amazing site!

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Unfortunately we don’t have them in epub … yet – its on my list of things to do 🙂 but if you can save the stories via PDF off the archive you can convert them to epub for your reader

  91. Elizabeth Means says:

    Question about Annihilation, any idea when it’ll be re posted with the updates and should we just go on and read books 1, 3 and 4 or just wait.

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Annihilation is basically no more … the storyline wasn’t going to work so its been fully scrapped – skip right over it as it doesn’t exist the only thing out of you need to know – Mac was shot by Sonny and Turned by Danny (literally that’s about all you need to know).

  92. Bethany Murgatroyd says:

    Hi There~

    It has been awhile since I have commented here, but I used to under the name Gregory House. I am so happy to be back in Sylum again. So I reread an old version of Clan war a while ago, but I am going to reread the new one now and then family. If you are scrapping the second story is there a chance that characters that died in Clan War might survive?
