What is Hellheart?

Hellheart is the culmination of years of my fantasy fueled brain trying to create something original, readable and enjoyable.

I think the development of Hellheart began with a short story I wrote as a teenager called “Honourwind” which was about a team of heroes creating a guild (Honourwind) and forging a sword that had been scattered around the world to defeat the big baddie (Think Lord of the Rings meets Dragonball Z). I was only about 15 at the time and really loved the story, the monsters and, in particular, the bad guy. He was essentially Sauron with a heart, mean and powerful, but broken and delusional. I wanted him to have a cool ass name so I googled some suggestions in different languages and hit upon “Addonexus” which I believe translates roughly as “bringer of death”.  Addonexus never left my mind, and is still a principle character in Hellheart.

But, What is a Hellheart?

Without spoiling too much, the Hellheart is a device from the depths of hell with insane power, it was never meant to reach the land of the living and when it does, things are going to get ugly… Imagine it to be an entity in itself… I guess from this description it sounds a lot like The Ring from Lord of the Rings, and in a way, it is similar, it corrupts, it empowers, it destroys. But the Hellheart also thinks, and the story will give a voice to that and a nature/nurture argument.

I’m starting to upload the start off Hellheart for you to (hopefully) enjoy. We start with Maia’s journey in Ghosts of Ice
