Development

Snowbirds

The land of Jiankou is a world I developed from 2017 to 2018, based on a fantasy Florida, where the elite live in the skies of the 2nd Perimeter and monsters roam the lands below in the Heartlands. Communication between the 2nd Perimeter the Heartlands is severed by the Sky Gang, pirates with jets in the skies. The Heartlands is plagued with sink dwellers, giant scorpians, invasive species, pythons, and horror stories.

King of the Merchants is a fairy tale within the land of Jiankou about the king who resides in the second perimeter.
