This is my first attempt to run and grow a blog series. Now be warned, I’m sure Of Blades and Kings will be filled with cliches and information everyone’s already talking about, but I’m hoping we can offer a different perspective, fun ideas, and ultimately create a community where you can discuss your opinions freely. We want everyone to feel like they’re apart of this blog as much as we are. That’s a challenge, but it’s one we want to accept.

As we go through this journey together, Of Blades and Kings will strive to touch on all things fantasy and science fiction. Like you can see across our home page we’re the new frontier for content and we want to keep it that way.

To give you a little background on me, I’m a huge The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Star Wars fans, I’ve read the books and watched the movies too many times to count and I’m struggling to know what to do with this knowledge. It’s not like they hand out degrees on this stuff (if you know of one please reach out). As I continue to read more content it’s become increasingly difficult for me to find someone who’s as passionate about these topics as I am. I may find a fan here or there but by the time I’ve finished ranting about books vs movies, old vs new, characters that should get their own spotlight I’m usually met with an “oh yeah that’s cool,” or “maybe,” but more commonly, “I don’t know.” And so begins my desperate attempt to find some like-minded, or like-passionate, people out there to talk to.

What Of Blades and Kings allows us to do is create a space where we can talk freely about things that we enjoy, and if you’re seeking that same place then, I hope you provide your own input as you see fit. If you’re worried about our content only reaching the 3 Kings (LOTR, HP, SW), as I like to call them, don’t fret because we’ll be talking about other movies, books, tv shows, video games, podcasts, art, anything, and everything.

Eventually, we’d like to work on some read throughs, create a podcast or video series, and provide some unique art work for you. This may be down the road for Of Blades and Kings, but we’re going to keep dreaming big and we hope you’ll follow along.

Thank you for your time and remember, not all those who wander are lost.
