Elemental Mazes Rule Book
All Rights Reserved
Katherine Rochholz

The Rules As Given By
Marcus Aurelius Marci Cornelius n. tribu Galeria Scipio Pius

         There will be one champion chosen by myself from each school.  One student per element.  If I am dead than my arm shall be imbued with my magic and I shall choose the champion even in death.
         Each champion must at least be a fourth year.  (Ages 12 and up)
         Each champion must either go to one of the major seven schools or a school in their area.  If they are home schooled they must choose a school to represent and be accepted by that school as a representative.
         Each champion shall choose one companion to help them through the Mazes.
         There will be a maximum of ten (10) students from each of the seven major schools.  A max of two per element.
         The schools must finish together.  With the exception, if a champion drops out of the contest or dies or is mortally wounded.  Then the remaining members of the school shall finish together.
         Each of the major schools is responsible for preparing one of the Seven Mazes.
         Cheating will result in being expelled from the Mazes.  The other six schools shall choose if the whole school is disqualified or if the other teams are allowed to continue.  (Teleportation to is cheating.)
         The Champions and their companion shall each have one bag of supplies.  It cannot have spells on it.  The bag shall be provided to the champion and their companion.  The bag shall be 20” height, 15” wide, and 6” deep.   The bag cannot contain spelled boxes or bags. 
         On their person, they can have a knife, their wand, and a weapon of their choice, example bow, and arrow.  No guns allowed.
         The tournament uniform consists of a pair of pants, a shirt, a jacket, a coat, gloves, hat, scarf, socks, underwear, long underwear and a pair of boots.  Each contestant and their champion will have three sets of this uniform to fit in their bag.  These are the only items that may be shrunk to fit in the bag.
         The champions and their companions have eight weeks or two months to get through each maze.  Once every school and champion and companion are through the maze or at the end of the eight-week time period; they will have a one week downtime before the start of the next maze.
         If all but one school is disqualified the remaining school does not have to go through the remaining mazes they are declared the champions.
         Champions and Companions may set traps for other schools but may not physically interact or confront them to knock them out of the competition.

December 13th Update

A quick update!

Keepers is almost done for a full edit!
Elemental Mazes re-write, though the handwritten part is going good, typing it out, not so good.
Shades of Fear is still set up as my personal goal for January, mostly to get all scenes laid out and written out before I go in and edit before sending to an editor.
Other than that, busy with Holiday shopping for the family!

Merry Christmas from my family to yours! If you don't celebrate Christmas, Happy Holidays!

Keepers Update

An Update on Keepers! I have rewritten the last of it, I decided not to make it as sad and dark as I started out with, and thus edited out about 10k words, working on the last three chapters and then off for an edit!  Remember I created Keepers to be about 50k words for a short read. As soon as I have a release date it will be posted! But until then typing and editing away!

December Update!

Hello, My Loyal Fans!

December going quickly! And I have decided I must be more realistic in my goals, and though most books are outlined with the day job I don't have a lot of time to write and then type, though I write every day what I write by hand, only about half end up being used. I have decided that Elemental Mazes will be getting a new full re-write? Why? Because I have added a scene to Falling Pieces and another to Dark Secrets that wouldn't fit if it wasn't set up in Elemental Mazes and that changes not only the flow of the book but the tone of it. Yes, it will be a bit darker in parts, especially the later chapters going into the darker fifth, sixth and seventh books
The Keepers and the Sisters of Lilith is now in an editing phase and a couple more chapters left to write. And here is my schedule for the next 13 months! If you would like me to change this drop me a line and let me know which of my WIPs you would rather see sooner! I will try to accommodate, after all, one must listen to their fans!

Inspiration for the Tone Of Elemental Mazes

Inspiration for the Tone Of Elemental Mazes

“Beneath The Pressure of Torments Such As These,
The Feeble Remnant of The Good Within Me Succumbed. Evil Thoughts Became My Sole Intimates—
The Darkest And Most Evil Of Thoughts."
~Edgar Allan Poe

December Plans!

Okay! So I made 50k last month but still have a couple chapters left of the Keepers! I also am doing a full re-write of Elemental Mazes! Why? Well, I added a scene to book five, that flowed well into book six and then into book seven that made the tone a bit darker like I wanted, but to set up the scene in book five I have to set it up in book four. And to do that I have to change the tone and flow of book four, only about 24000 of the 75000 words I had for book four will be kept. So once the two chapters of Keepers is done this week, I will be fully focused on Elemental Mazes and then in January Shades of Fear! Thank you for following and your support!
