Zack Storch new book fantasy free mmo

Three million years ago, the planetary system of Za’nar’s connection to the Magic-providing Void Plane was failing. To prevent the disappearance of Za'nar, a Magical Link between it and Earth was created. The Link shares much back and forth between the two systems, including their connection to the Void Plane. 

Now, one year after the War and the establishment of a parliamentary monarchy in Za'nar, Earth is in trouble. Sael Ageis, accomplished Magi of Za'nar, meets earthlings Klyde Vance and Fae, and together they find themselves drawn into a three million year old Magical conflict, unlocking secrets about the human race.

Meet the Magi with Zack

The stars of Za'nar: Impossibility!

Hello, heroes! I’m Zack Storch! You may have seen me in Battleon last year selling my armor, or on TBS’s reality TV show King of the Nerds. I’m very excited to be sharing my story, Za’nar: Impossibility with all of you! With the Za’nar Void Invasion coming up, I wanted to tell you about some of my characters. They’ll be helping you repel Jir’abin’s attack on Lore! You can learn even more about them in the novel, which is available now!

Sael Ageis
Dragon-shifting Wizard and co-leader of the Accord

In her nineteen years of life, Sael Ageis has accomplished a lifetime of accolades fighting in arena combat and when monsters organized during the War that threatened the planets of Za’nar one year ago. Her accomplishments during the War, as well as her father Qion’s political history, earned her a position of co-leadership over the newly founded interplanetary government, the Accord. 

Proud, arrogant and stubborn, she can seem closed off at first and speaks with an odd formality, but cares deeply about Za’nar and the people in her life. A well studied Wizard with the rank of Magi, Sael was able to master a ritual of transformation to take on the form of a Dragon for use in interplanetary flight, and invented swift “Combat Runes” to use her icy attacks more quickly.

Klyde Vance
Blade Sorcerer of Earth

An eighteen year old man who met Sael while she was on an investigative assignment to Earth. Imaginative and prone to day dreams, learning that his fantasies of magic and aliens were real came as a welcome shock! After having her bring him to Za’nar, he discovered a knack for Blade Sorcery, or intuitive Magic inspired by the use of weapons and objects as channels.

With a new world opened up to him, he’s found himself questioning if anything is impossible. Now he uses conjured weapons to launch shockwaves, make broils of fire and send waves of water at those who would threaten his friends.

Fae
Hyperactive, Flying Earthling Sorcerer

With a difficult past and no family to rely on, Fae found strength in her best friends Klyde and Tyler. Adopting an upbeat personality has helped her overcome her past, while refusing to use her last name helped her be her own self and put her unhealthy parents behind her.

She has an interest in fencing, which helps hone her reflexes. A brilliant chemistry student, Fae is always positive and smiling, and has a large sweet tooth. She always wished Magic existed, so when Klyde and Sael brought her to Za’nar, she was ready to try and learn! Fae is a powerful Sorcerer, and has an affinity for Darkness Magics.

Daz Acer
Theatrical Wizard and Elemental Archer

Orphaned at a young age, Daz was adopted by Sael’s father Qion. Sael and Daz have always been close, and studied together at Reald University for High Magic. Extremely confident in composure, Daz has a flair for the theatrical and often thinks of life as a show. When the two-year monster uprising of the War began, he fought alongside Sael to protect the planets of Za’nar.

With the intuitive ability for Light Magics and Healing from birth, Daz also learned the Wizardry and Runes to fight with Elemental arrows, and be well-rounded with other elements.

Hailing from the small town of Ilis on the heavily forested planet Daram, seventeen year old Rath Halon has simple goals in life: finish school, surpass her father’s social position, have her name recorded in the annals of Magical history for some grand accomplishment or discovery, and become the captain of Vane Rajid’s royal guard--perhaps her goals aren’t so humble!

Rath doesn’t seek an adventurer’s life, but it manages to find her. Expecting to graduate with the rank of Magi at the top of her class, Rath is a very attentive student. She often worries she’s said something wrong and regrets her words, then apologizes or makes an effort to retract them. She fights with her kadjir's, thrown bladed hoops used in Magical ritual that can cloak themselves in Elemental forces like Fire and Lightning.

At thirty-four years old by Earth years, Zail is the provost of Reald University for High Magic. He often moves his hands when he speaks, and finds humor in small things.

In the worlds of Za’nar, there are two main divisions of Mages: Sorcerers and Wizards. Sorcerers cast Magics with their bodies, while Wizards make use of precisely drawn Runes of Void Energy. At Reald University, Zail and his teachers educate students on the principals and Runes of Magic.

Jir’abin
Dragon of Darkness

Having lost strength in a mysterious occurrence three-million years ago, Jir’abin resides on the Void Plane, making plans for his return to Za’nar. By creating his Shades and having them gather Inert Presence, or latent Magical worth held in every being, he seeks to regain his lost power to be able to manifest in Za’nar.

Having become obsessed over the years, he’s willing to do anything to accomplish what he not only sees as a noble goal, but a heroic one.

Guest Author Zack Storch

Meet AQWorlds' Own King of the Nerds!

If you weren't with us back in 2014, you missed out on our first in-game meeting with AQWorlds' Zack Storch, during his appearance on season 2 of the hit TBS reality TV show, "King of the Nerds"! He is a really amazing guy, so we dubbed him AQW's "King of the Nerds" and gave everyone a chance to get his armor.

Zack Storch and his cast of characters in AQW

He's had many adventures since then, including finishing his first novel, "Za'nar: Impossibility." After reading an advance copy last year, Artix, the AQW team, and I knew we needed to make an in-game event based on the adventures of the characters.

The Author - Who IS Zack Storch?

Zack Storch is MANY things - author, AE fan, true nerd- but also:

  • 22 years old
  • Has been playing AE games since 2004 (before there were even classes in AQ classic, and buying an item sent you to another webpage...)
  • A contestant on King of the Nerds season 2, where he brought Twilly along for the adventure to help me as his loyal and literal pocket healer 
  • Is an amateur game developer as a hobby
  • Is working on his third novel and publishing this as his first
  • Can be found on Twitter  and on Facebook and his novel website

The Novel - Za'Nar: Impossibility

After working with Zack for the last few months, one this is very clear - he is FULL of ideas, and a very clear vision for the Za'narian story universe. It's filled with magic, mayhem, and magi the likes of which AQWorlds has never seen before! I am still trying to decide which of his characters is my favorite, but you'll be introduced to them all this Friday!

Or you can meet them NOW - "Za'nar: Impossibility" is available on Amazon (for the Kindle), Barnes and Noble (for the Nook), and on Kobo! Read on to find out a bit about the novel!

Three million years ago, the planetary system of Za’nar’s connection to the Magic-providing Void Plane was failing. To prevent the disappearance of Za'nar, a Magical Link between it and Earth was created. The Link shares much back and forth between the two systems, including their connection to the Void Plane. 

Now, one year after the War and the establishment of a parliamentary monarchy in Za'nar, Earth is in trouble. Sael Ageis, accomplished Magi of Za'nar, meets earthlings Klyde Vance and Fae, and together they find themselves drawn into a three million year old Magical conflict, unlocking secrets about the human race.
