Etopia-
A collection of stories and tales that are all interwined in a single universe.

Etopia is the name of the world that most of the stories take place on. It is a fantasy world with humans, elves, dwarves, merfolk, and almost any other fantasy species you can think of. 
Of course though, just like in any world there is corruption.

Everything is still in progress, but it is slowly coming together. Stories are updated at different times. There is also some comics and pictures mixed in to help give the feeling of actually knowing the characters. When I get a store up, you will be able to buy posters and art.

I first had the idea for Etopia when I got tired of the same things being used in every story. Giant epic adventures are nice and always interesting to see because you can watch as the protagonist grows into their destiny, but it is commonly used. In real life, there aren't always happy endings or things are completely different than what they appear. Not everyone is on the front lines chasing after glory. These thoughts are what creates the stories in Etopia. Things that are there and that happen, but aren't always mentioned in the big, epic, powerful stories. Each person can have a completely different view of the same event. That is what I think makes it interesting.

About me:
I am Cora V. Hell, the sole author and artist of Etopia. I have been drawing for several years so even if the writing isn't that good hopefully the pictures are good. I have also created a lot of things, from cosplay to pillows and even types of jewelry and key chains.

When I was younger, I would always create characters, make their appearance, had them act out scenes in my head, only for the character to be forgotten forever. As I got older, I started to document these characters. I would draw what they looked like and give them a character sheet that told me their names, nicknames, personality, backstory, like, dislikes, etc. I even tried to create actual stories between these characters. Now, I feel as if I can weave characters together as if they were acting with each other in a real setting versus putting them in a situation and forcing them to move to my whims. This is part of the reason I feel that every time I go to fix or edit it, or even rewrite a part it can turn into something completely different.

What you are financing:

  • Website- I want this to be free to read while it is a work in progress. As of right now I am using Google sites because I can have multiple pages without getting charged, but it is very simple and hard to find when searching. Simple can be a good or bad thing. I want to get a professionally done website that will be able to hold all visitors so it doesn't crash, as well as a custom domain so it will be easier to find when searching.
  • Supplies- This is supplies as to make higher quality pictures and comics. I want to be able to start a store as well. To do that, I will need supplies to make posters, plushies, and whatever else I might try selling.
  • Editor- As of right now, I have no real editor. I just send my stories to my friends and hope they give me a solid review of it. If I can afford this, I can produce better stories because I will be receiving actual trustworthy critique versus flattery or nothing at all.

Thank you to all supporters! You and your help is greatly appropriated!
If you wish to see what is happening so far, check out the current website at sites.google.com/view/etopiaonline. (If nothing else, this should be proof that money for a new website might be good.)
