The Long Night Comes

The sun has begun to set on Terra, giving reign to the unholy Night foretold by the Verses. The Exxarians have returned to reap the destruction sown into the earth several millennia ago. But the object of their ruinous plot has eluded them in the form of a crafty soldier. Kyran, the last of the Arcans and bearer of the Godfall, finds himself on an unlikely journey, uncovering secrets about his primordial lineage. Such secrets, once realized, could mean the downfall of a calculated and genius scheme for the Exxarians. But, while Kyran endeavors to find his way, the Exxarians grow ever closer to the culmination of their apocalyptic design. He is the final piece.

Exxaria's first creation, the Titan, is the perfect force to conquer the Creator's heavens and it has already begun the road to its unholy return. But before it can reach Arcryfa it must consume Terra and regain its strength. Still bound to the Godfall, however, the unholy abomination's emergence is now dependent upon a crafty Arcan with a talent for survival. With the Descended, the last of Exxaria's progeny, whipping every force they can muster at Kyran there's no telling how long the Godfall might remain intact. Should the Titan emerge, frail Terra will not have the strength to endure its apocalyptic footfalls.


An Unusual Band of Misfits

The soldiers of Arcan are warriors each, but not in a conventional sense. However, their respective charisma has weaved together a team of strangers that would shed blood together. Kyran is proud, and as capable as his Arcan lineage would project, but it will take a team to fight back the Exxarians.


A dystopia in ruin. A Utopia in Peril.

The evil that threatened the world in the beginning has come to taper the end. The Exxarians are creatures of nightmare whose horrors no gospel could ever realize and they've come to claim the world once more.

Two Decades In the Making

Julian Brooks is an author driven by a vision grown from the imagination of his childhood. Though an assertive visual artist, words have always proven fulfilling instruments of story-crafting. Like many authors, his origins reside with various stories conveyed through books, video games, film, and music. Chicago, his home, has sculpted an artist appreciative of numerous art forms. His wife, children, and German Shepherd are the fire that drives him. And though his premier series, Arcan, is a plethora of lore and fiction, he has many other titles waiting to be shared. His love for fantasy and consciousness of others like him were the foundation of what has become EPOCH Studios. His mission is to build a universe filled with his peers of fellow creators.
