Okay, right here is where you can read the start of the next episode of Crystals of Silveria. Call it a sneak preview, if you like. Enjoy!
Of She-Orcs and Men Sneak Preview:

Scene 1: Ethereal Expanse: Unknown Time of Day

Zed stares at Jen's true form, his mouth full of cake. He chews once, then after a brief pause, he chews again. Finally, he swallows his mouthful. He opens his mouth to speak, but Jen interrupts him.

Jen: Does my true form startle you?

Zed: Uh...well...not gonna lie, it does a little.

Jen: I understand.

Jen closes her glowing-white eyes. Her whole body glows with white light as she assumes her human form. She opens her eyes and smiles at Zed.

Jen: Is that better?

Zed: Much, thank you.

Jen: I am glad.

Jen slowly walks towards Zed, stopping to face him.

Jen: So you know that I am a Genie, and that I can grant you anything you desire.

Zed: I don't know, aren't Genies supposed to be...tricksters?

Jen: Ah, you speak of Zeffh, the Genies of Elemental Air.

Zed: I see...

Jen: There are five kinds of Genie. The Lytth are the Genies of Elemental Earth, and they have a high number of rules and regulations with their wishes. If a wish breaks their rules, they will almost always refuse to grant it.

Zed: I see...

Jen: The Freet are the Genies of Elemental Fire, and they delight in granting wishes, though they often change the interpretation of the wish to their own desires, which are usually unpleasant to the wisher. When a Freeti grants your wish, choose your words carefully.

Zed: Sounds...yeah...

Jen: Indeed. Zeffh are the carefree individuals of our kind, and will grant virtually any wish asked of them, even ones which come dangerously close to breaking the fundamental laws of wish-granting. Having said that, they are most likely to evade granting a wish, and if a Zeffhi must grant a wish, it often manipulates the wisher to wish for something the Zeffhi desires.

Zed: Now that IS tricky!

Jen: Indeed. The Merll are the Genies of Elemental Water, and they will grant any wish asked of them, as long as it obeys the fundamental laws of wish-granting. However, they will only grant wishes of those they deem worthy.

Zed: Interesting...

Jen: The fifth kind - my kind - is the Gen, the basest of all Genies. Most Genies grant three wishes of an individual, and each kind has its own rules and regulations when granting them. Gen need only obey the fundamental laws of wish-granting, but may only grant one wish of an individual. This is why your wish needs to be chosen very carefully, Zed.

Zed: Wait...you're offering me a wish?!

Jen: Of course. I have peered into your mind, and I see your greatest desire, even if you do not.

Zed: You do?

Jen: In fact, Gen are not even bound to the restriction of requiring the "I wish" clause.

Zed: Okay...wait, what?

Jen: Which means I am able to grant your wish if your subconscious desires it more than anything, as long as it obeys the fundamental laws of wish-granting.

Zed: I think I know where this is going...

Jen: Your wish...is granted.

Zed: Wait...what?!

Jen raises her arms into the air. The pattern of circles appears under Zed's feet, though in a slightly deeper shade of blue than before. A column of light erupts from the ground around Zed.

Zed: But I don't even know my wish!

The column of light recedes into the ground. The pattern fades, revealing an expanse of peach-orange sand. Zed looks to the horizon, but sees nothing but sand.

Zed: Great, I have no idea where I am. Kobelia, maybe? Or Archaelia?

Zed turns around, and sees a colossal structure of metal embedded in the sand. It has a futuristic design unlike anything he's seen before. Argen appears on his shoulder, yawning loudly.

Argen: What'd I miss?

Argen looks at the structure. His eyes widen.

Argen: Whoa, that's impressive!

Zed speaks in an unusual language.

Zed: Argen? Ornoposia intra nos amplius non puto... (Argen? I don't think we're in Ornoposia anymore...)

You remember that other sneak preview? The one in the most recent Super-Short? Well, here it is again...in unabridged form! Enjoy!
Spoiler:

Zed looks over at the structure.

Zed: Pergamus ad putas? (Think we should walk over to it?)

Argen becomes nervous.

Argen: Uh...Zed?

Zed: Yes?

Argen: You're speaking a really weird language. I've never heard it before.

Zed: Vere? Ego non loquitur Common? (Really? I'm not speaking Common?)

Argen seems surprised.

Argen: You really think you're speaking Common?!

Zed: Yes!

After a brief pause, Zed speaks.

Zed: Ego non loquitur Common, Ego sum? (I'm not speaking Common, am I?)

Argen: That would be correct.

Zed: Corpus quomodo lingua mea tuenda?! (How do I restore my language?!)

Argen: Maybe you should enter that building over there. Whoever's inside might be able to help.

Zed: Wait...Vos non venturus? (Wait...you're not coming?)

Argen: No way. This whole situation is freaking me out! Later!

Argen vanishes. Zed lets out a sigh.

Zed: Coniecto hoc solum mali facio... (Guess I'm doing this alone...)

Zed begins walking towards the building.

***

Zed stands facing a giant metal door. He walks up next to it, staring at his reflected face. His eyes widen.

Zed: Whoa, is that a pimple?! It's huge!

Zed claps his hands to his mouth.

Zed: I can speak Common again! Oh, what a relief. I guess I don't need to enter this building after all. Guess I'll just go and...uh...

Zed stares at the ocean of sand, with no distinguishing landmarks to be seen.

Zed: Okay, bad idea. I could walk forever and still find nothing but desert.

The doors swing open behind him, emitting a bright light from within. A voice seems to echo from thin air.

Voice: Enter.

Zed spins around and looks into the building. He shrugs his shoulders.

Zed: Guess I have no choice...

Zed begins to walk into the chamber. After making some considerable distance, the doors swing shut. Zed doesn't look behind him, but continues walking. The walls and ceiling are completely bare, and made of the same mysterious metal. As Zed approaches the end of the corridor, he enters a room of white light. A hatch seals behind him, and this time he turns around. The voice causes him to face the centre of the room again. It seems to be quite calm and relaxed.

Voice: Please, stand on the cyan circle in the centre of the chamber.

Zed stands on the circle, and is surrounded by a column of weird cyan energy. A ring of tiny cyan lights appears on the walls of the chamber, revealing it to be circular.

Zed: Uh...hello?

Voice: Yes?

Zed: What, uh...what exactly is going on?

Voice: Fear not. No harm will befall you.

Zed: Uh...okay then.

The tiny cyan lights become incredibly bright. Zed squints through them.

Voice: Subject is definitely not of this world. He appears to be a homonid human, but his makeup is noticeably unique.

Zed: Makeup? I don't use makeup!

Voice: Complete absence of multiversal aura is most unusual.

Zed: Aura? I think Mr. Newt mentioned something about that once...

Voice: Subject shows curiosity about study. Suggests unusual mind construction for his species.

Zed: Unusual? You just said I was from another world.

Voice: Scan of subject's cerebral matter does indeed indicate an abnormally-configured mind. Great intellect, yet much of it still untapped. Entire banks of memories completely gone. Other banks of memories encrypted. Requires further research.

Zed: Okay, what is so special about me?

Voice: Prepare subject for transport.

Zed: Wait...transport?!

Suddenly, the blue disc upon which Zed is standing moves upward, propelling him into a network of energy tubes.

Zed: WHOOOOOOOA!

Okay, let me know what you think of this expanded sneak preview with a comment! Smile

I think it's time for an announcement. Drum roll, please...

Ba-dum ba-dum ba-dum ba-dum ba-dum ba-dum ba-dum ba-dum

The countdown to the finale of Crystals of Silveria has begun! The Sands of Suna marks five episodes until the first series' epic conclusion, so here's a list of what's coming episode-wise:

●The Sands of Suna - 5 episodes till the finale!
●Of She-Orcs and Men - 4 episodes till the finale!
●Emily's Homecoming - 3 episodes till the finale!
●The Winter Festival - 2 episodes till the finale!
●Zed's True Home - 1 episode till the finale!

The finale will wrap up the series in a big way, with plenty of action, shocking twists and a final showdown between the Crystalbound and the forces of the Sorceress of Winter!

And if that wasn't enough, the first episodes of the next series, Mask of Akanius, have already been uploaded and are readable right here! This series is set in a new world, with a new cast of characters, but it does eventually tie into Crystals of Silveria as the heroes of both worlds meet for the first time. If you can, please do check it out and let me know what you think.

Remember...5 episodes till the finale! Wink

In the next episode, we learn that Zed's elemental coding is...

( Y | Y | Y )

...which makes his elemental affinity water. The computer systems which Axian uses to scan Zed's mind reach this conclusion after a bit of a technical glitch, something Axian claims is a "one-in-a-million occurrence". I thought I'd share the blueprint of elemental codings with you.

Each coding is made up of a combination of three letters, with the letters separated into two pairs: A (Earth) and B (Air); and X (Fire) and Y (Water). The way the letters combine determines which of 16 possible elemental affinities an individual may have:

( A | A | A ) - Earth (Thobrun has this coding)

( A | X | A ) - Sand (Sara has this coding)

( X | A | X ) - Rock (Mak has this coding)

( X | X | X ) - Fire (Kendall has this coding)

( X | B | X ) - Electricity (Brent has this coding)

( B | X | B ) - Thunder (Emily has this coding)

( B | B | B ) - Air (Amethyst has this coding)

( B | Y | B ) - Vapour (Kara has this coding)

( Y | B | Y ) - Ice (Bryn has this coding)

( Y | Y | Y ) - Water (Zed, the Sorceress of Winter and Erik have this coding)

( Y | A | Y ) - Brine (Trent has this coding)

( A | Y | A ) - Wood (Brocc has this coding)

( Y | A | X ) - Metal

( A | X | B ) - Light (Lillian has this coding)

( X | B | Y ) - Energy

( B | Y | A ) - Dark (Alek has this coding)

Okay, I thought I'd test everyone's knowledge with a Crystals of Silveria quiz! The questions will all be from the first 10 episodes of the series, and will feature a set of multiple-choice questions at varying levels of difficulty. I can't guarantee that this quiz will be entirely spoiler-free, so if you haven't read up to I Dream of Jen, be warned. With that out of the way, let's begin the quiz!

Question 1: What is the name of the tavern between Zed's hometown and Silveria City? (1 point)
    A: The Naked Drake
    B: The Name Pending
    C: The Bronzed Axolotl


Question 2: What is the name of Alek's evil twin brother? (1 point)
    A: Lola
    B: Jillian
    C: Lillian


Question 3: What is Kendall's race? (1 point)
    A: Werewolf
    B: Wereborn
    C: Wolfborn


Question 4: Who is Brocc's biggest hero? (1 point)
    A: Katalina Pharrschott
    B: Brocc Farshot
    C: Bryn


Question 5: What was the name of the potion which Gazzo tricked Zed into ingesting? (1 point)
    A: Potion of banish clothes
    B: Potion of vanished clothing
    C: Potion of concealed garments


Question 6: What is Mak's profession? (1 point)
    A: Warrior
    B: Knight
    C: Barbarian


Question 7: What did Brocc dream about while unconscious in an alleyway? (1 point)
    A: His own hotel in the Euroria Archipelago
    B: Thrashing Bryn in a poetry battle
    C: The grand opening of Chateau de Broccoli Lumidelven Cuisine


Question 8: What colour lipstick does the Sorceress of Winter wear? (1 point)
    A: Cyan
    B: Purple
    C: Blue


Question 9: Which Celestial Being does Emily revere? (1 point)
    A: Marilina Goldblade
    B: Marilina Silverblade
    C: Marilina Silvertooth


Question 10: Where is Zed's tattoo-like mark?
    A: On the back of his right hand
    B: On his left palm
    C: On his right palm


Okay, how did you do? Click the spoiler tag to see the answers. And remember, there is no honour in peeking before finishing the quiz! Wink
Spoiler:

ANSWERS
1: B (the owners hadn't thought of a name in time for the grand opening, and the placeholder stuck.)

2: C (he can't stand the name, as his peers called him "Lily-Man", a slang for coward)

3: C (he's half-werewolf, as in "born of wolf", hence the term)

4: A (he idolises his sister more than anyone, even following the same profession as her)

5: A (Gazzo calls it the "ultimate party gag", though he made this batch too strong)

6: B (Bryn finds out the truth from Mak's friend, Sir Guy of Coppelia)

7: A (he often fantasises about a holiday in the tropics, which so far has gone unfulfilled)

8: C (the particular shade of blue she chooses adds to her already-frosty demeanour)

9: B (she was once a human paladin who saved a town from elementals, and ascension was her reward)

10: A (his glove has trouble concealing it when it glows, however)

RESULTS
10 = Crystalbound - You are a true Crystals of Silveria superfan! Well done!

8-9 = Master Adventurer - Looks like someone's a fan of the series! Are you pumped for the finale?

5-7 = Adventurer-in-Training - How many times have you read the series? You may spot new details if you read them again.

2-4 = Apprentice - There have been new episodes added recently. Would you like to check them out?

0-1 = Dabbler - There's plenty more action beyond the two-part pilot. It might be worth reading some other episodes.
How did you do in the quiz? Be sure to post your results below!
