Akiniwazi is the name of the setting for new Epic Christian Fantasy Adventure series, and will be used to identify all books in that series. The setting is based on Viking lore and northeastern Indians (Oneida, Huron, Mohican, Ojibwe) as well as having a large dose of "hard science steampunk". By hard science steampunk consider early steam locomotives and paddlewheel ships but if they were designed by Tudor/Viking medieval era designers. It also calls on Christianized Viking culture, early Native American language and myths, lumberjack lore, the Great Lakes and the Northwoods of the Midwest US and Canada. It should feel medieval to early Renaissance (circa 1500ad) in theme. The war between Heaven and Hell is very prounounced in the land with and have the feel that the “Special Effects are turned to 11”, with the manifestation of demons and angels occurring throughout the book. So a touch of the divine versus the infernal is also good. The target audience is primarily for fantasy fans and Christians, with some crossover to alternate history and steampunk fans. There should be a connection to medieval Christianity in conflict with the infernal as well as the power and ruggedness of steampunk innovation in a form that could be plausibly used like a wax seal, though lithograph or woodcut style is also a good choice. It should be convertible to a one or two color process.
Update: 12-19 I have included a quick roughout I produced that lacks the sub-title, which would work best in typical 'flowing banner' style like found in the East India Co. Name and Hudson Bay Company logo. The "Akiniwazi" name should be done in a placard style at the base with some typical flourishes found in 1500 era The thunderbird should be subdued because it is a background theme of the setting, while the cross/smokestack should be most dominant. Please avoid horses as none exist in the setting. Oxen, Llamas, Caribou (Reindeer), Elk are appropriate. The Font I used was called "Pythia", but a viking runic or germanic woodcut style is appropriate as well, or a medieval/Pirate era script. <><><> Please no clip art, or re-purposed artwork. Original illustration only. If you want to get more of the flavor, please go here for a longer description, and sample chapter. https://resonantpoint.wordpress.com/library/akiniwazi/ From the early Akiniwazi logo I would like to keep the paddlewheel, smokestack, and whistle if possible, but use a cross instead of a sword. Other machinery to use could be steam locomotive wheels, rocker arms For weapons, two or three crossed axes (one viking broad ax, one ceremonial tomahawk, or a timber ax could be used.) could be used. If animals are used, consider thunderbirds, caribou, Old English or Neopolitan Mastiff dog breeds. (not hounds or pit bulls or labradors). Fonts: Distressed classical or fantasy based for the name that would be appropriate for the time period. Clean condensed Sans Serif, or good copperplate style for the phrase is preferred, unless you find a good inspiration. Should be legible when reduced.
