A message from Stephen Purdon


thank you
thank you!

One of the best ways to support my work, as mentioned elsewhere, is to buy the Anarkand books, or to upgrade your membership to Anarkand Prime.

I wanted to ensure that I offered something truly worthy of people's disposable income, because the last couple of years have been a living nightmare for a lot of us, and as a creator first and foremost, I love the idea of giving something imaginative, and creative in return for support.

I love the idea that people have an immersive, lore-filled, and interactive website that rewards you with worthwhile content for the support that you provide for me and my family. I am a single parent. A father to a beautiful little girl of 10 who I raise on my own. I do my best to juggle the demands of the content I create for the website, the books I write, and of course, the attention that a little person needs, and expects.

I have so much creativity to unlock, and much more content to produce for the Anarkand series, and to be honest, I love that fact. My only difficulty stems from ensuring the above-mentioned demands are satisfied, and that the content I create is worthy of your attention, time, and effort, and that I can provide for my small family unit whilst accomplishing the above.

Everything that you see here on Anarkand.com is a combination of arduous study, determination, and hard work. I don't have a production team behind me. It is simply me, alone, myself. The card game and their mechanics, the adventure RPG called Lunaris, the tabletop RPG core system, which I will open up for everyone to utilise and profit from, are all my own work. In addition, the books, the music, the lore and much more, are accomplished with great resolution to ensure I leave a lasting legacy on this shared home of ours.

Anarkand Novels and Anarkand Chronicles


The purchasing of Anarkand books and Anarkand Chronicles novellas, is the best way to support me as an author. I assure you I put a great amount of effort into the structure of these stories and the longevity of the many sub-plots that you will encounter. In addition there are many easter eggs and opportunities to be a part of the action, and further details on this will be revealed in due course.




Business and investment opportunities


There are many other ways to get involved in the Anarkand universe, and there are opportunities for businesses which have been devised by the author and built from the ground up. These opportunities can be viewed by visiting the Business Opportunities page.



I thank you for taking the time to read this over. I love creative people, and my ultimate goal is to give other creatives, who are stifled by the system we are bound to, an opportunity to flourish, when, and if, I get myself into a position to do so. Creative people drive the world, without us where would the world be? Surely a duller place?
